No apologies necessary. You've helped out a lot.

One last question, do you know if the top bar is easily configurable? It appears as if it uses the authors own included images, so maybe it is difficult to edit.

I have another theme called:

Mac Media Bar

But, that one uses an image also. I guess it depends on how you want to change it.

The Scripts are easy enough to change. But, you would have to edit the image.

Hey, checkout this theme:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=7071

The media bar looks alot better.

It uses text not graphics and looks pretty good.

I just downloaded and looked over the macosx2.theme It looks pretty straight-forward to fix it to how I want. I didn't know these themes were this basic. I know not all are, but I could probably even make my own. I can definitely handle changing the graphic.

Thanks for finding these for me. I've actually glanced at most of them before, but just thought the small bars were the bottom dock bar things. This media bar looks good too. Thanks a ton for all your help.

Yes, it is more configurable. It came default to 1024 but I made it 1280 to fit my resolution. I just need to play around with the spaceing for the text.

This one looks pretty good. I will have to play around with it also.

I think this is something that KDE development should work on. There is a menu bar built into KDE, but I don't believe its customizable, at least not in 3.1.x. They've put so much work into the Kicker (the bottom default KDE bar), and they are working on it even more, so I think that it wouldn't be too hard to carry it over into the top menu bar. The new Kicker will be transparent for sure, I hope they implement a smooth zooming feature too Then I can get away from using SuperKaramba for things like this and just use it for a sys monitor and weather app.
