Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Karamba should run under GNOME. If it is not properly transparent, then you need to ask the karamba developers to use the E root window pixmap protocol, instead of talking directly to KDesktop (or do it yourself)
well yes i finally got it, i had to update kde to > 3.1, and karamba runs in gnome, but there is no point in doing it...all it does is make changes to the KDE bases programs such as konqueror, kmail, etc.... the taskbar doesn't change there is no transparency or anything....
I was also wondering about using (super)karamba outside kde. I'm using waimea and love the transparency and configurability, I'm enjoying digging a little deeper every day.
Super karamba seems interesting, and i like what i've seen so far, but as you said uses kdesktop to do its pseudo-transparency - and i can't stand using kde. Googling it i came across this : http://dot.kde.org/1052090294/105216...79/#1052169938
To create a transparent widget, construct a KRootPixmap and pass it a
* pointer to your widget. That's it! Moving, resizing and background changes
* are handled automatically.
* Instead of using the default behaviour, you can ask KRootPixmap
* to emit a @ref backgroundUpdated(const QPixmap &) signal whenever
* the background needs updating by using @ref setCustomPainting(bool).
* Alternatively by reimplementing @ref updateBackground(KSharedPixmap*)
* you can take complete control of the behaviour.
sounds easy right? What i'm basically wondering is if i can use the KRootPixmap header directly from the python file in my super karamba theme, or if this is something that has to be added to superkaramba itself.
As you may have guessed i know nothing about python. If any one can give me a clue about this, i'd be very grateful.
Well, if you guys haven't heard, there is an almost equivalent prog for gnome now available called gdesklets, it hasn't yet got the same level of contributions from themers, but its looking and working great on my desktop.
