The one at lynucs.org is super easy, it's just enlightenment window manager with a background and gDesklets. The other one, the part I'm guessing you're talking about it probably SuperKaramba. Google either and you'll sort it out, gDesklets is for GNOME and SuperKaramba is for KDE, if you run a neuteral window manager such as fluxbox then you can use either :)

Ok how do I install a theme on debain where do I go and set it up. and where would the installed file be.

Fast Hint, Those Temperature and HD monitoring stuff are superkaramba themes.
Just go here and download
what you want. And use superkaramba to open those themes you downloaded.

I dl superkaramba-0.35.tar.gz and installed it (well tried to) here is what I did after unpacking it using the gui method.

I typed ./configure which seemed to do fine but then I typed make and it went well until the end where it said 2 error then after I tried make install it gave 1 error at the end of the installation.

Any way I cant seem to find it any where did it install and if it did how can I find it also is this version any good.


Well thank you all

Dude, Just install karamba from the debian repository using "apt-get install superkaramba". You don't need to download any tar.gz files.

To search for a certain program that you want to install, use
apt-cache search programName
and as a result you will get a list of package names along with a
short description for each one. Then locate which one you really
want to install and use its exact package name in the "apt-get
install" command.
Example,
Lets say you want to install a network sniffer program but you don't
have an exact program in mind. So you first do a search
Code:

spark:/home/onemanarmy# apt-cache search network sniffer
airsnort - WLAN sniffer
darkstat - a network traffic analyzer
dsniff - Various tools to sniff network traffic for cleartext insecurities
ethereal - Network traffic analyzer
ethereal-common - Network traffic analyser (common files)
ethereal-dev - Network traffic analyser (development tools)
ettercap - Multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN
karpski - ethernet analyzer and sniffer
kismet - Wireless 802.11b monitoring tool
nast - packet sniffer and a lan analyzer
nwatch - Network service detector.
prismstumbler - Wireless network sniffer

Then you see that dsniff is interesting but you are still not sure whether
it is the right package to install. You would like to get more info about it; like
version, more detailed description...etc. So you do
Code:

spark:/home/onemanarmy# apt-cache show dsniff
Package: dsniff
Priority: extra
Section: net
Installed-Size: 380
Maintainer: Steve Kemp <skx@debian.org>

Description: Various tools to sniff network traffic for cleartext insecurities
This package contains several tools to listen to and create network traffic:

 * arpspoof - Send out unrequested (and possibly forged) arp replies.
  * dnsspoof - forge replies to arbitrary DNS address / pointer queries
              on the Local Area Network.
  * dsniff - password sniffer for several protocols.
  * filesnarf - saves selected files sniffed from NFS traffic.
  * macof - flood the local network with random MAC addresses.
  * mailsnarf - sniffs mail on the LAN and stores it in mbox format.
  * msgsnarf - record selected messages from different Instant Messengers.
  * sshmitm - SSH monkey-in-the-middle. proxies and sniffs SSH traffic.
  * sshow - SSH traffic analyser
  * tcpkill - kills specified in-progress TCP connections.
  * tcpnice - slow down specified TCP connections via "active"
              traffic shaping.
  * urlsnarf - output selected URLs sniffed from HTTP traffic in CLF.
  * webmitm - HTTP / HTTPS monkey-in-the-middle. transparently proxies.
  * webspy - sends URLs sniffed from a client to your local browser.

Feel it is the right one. Then go ahead with installing it
Code:

spark:/home/onemanarmy# apt-get install dsniff
Concerning your other question, the sites you download from the packages is
located in the file /etc/apt/sources.list.

Hope I helped.
