Hi sorry not checked this thread for a while, I replied to big john but I will post what I said up here for you all
I will try to answer all the questions posted.
pibby, thx for the comments ye I love it although I cant take any credit for it. You must install superkaramba first, the theme I used is under the karamba section at www.kdelook.org,
in reply to your other message the files can be put anywhere that is readable by the user wishing to use the theme, eg I put my themes in /usr/share/supertheme/ and set the permissions to allow access for all users.
Lostman, the sidebar is indeed a mac style launchbar and is part of the entire theme (links further down)
As bigjohn already said the bar on the left is indeed a skinned gkrellm the reason I still run gkrellm as some of the sharper eyed people will have noticed is that I have 2 CPU's. The most important thing to point out is for the other theme you NEED superkaramba (links below)
The news feeds are part of the same theme, but you will need perl installed and you will have to edit the scripts so that you get the correct newsfeeds (I wanted /. and el reg)
here are the links
Light-n-Crisp (the topbar, newsfeeds, mac style bar, wallpaper etc.)
*edit* its seems that Light-n-crisp only needs karamba, but your better off installing superkaramba anyway*edit*
Hope that helps you folks.
