superkaramba how-to?


I just emerged suprkaramba and would like to experiment with different themes and stuff, but I can't seem to find any documentation on how to configure it or anyhting. When I run superkaramba, I window pops up asking for a configuration file. This looks like a sweet program but not if I can't do anything with it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Exclamation SuperKaramba

Go see the SuperKaramba homepage... It'll tell you more about the proggy!

(Hint: kde-look.org have a Karamba section in it...)

2nd Hint: Karamba & SuperKaramba are type of script interpreter that can customize info-bars or kicker-bars replacement... So you need to downloads modules and modify them to suit your needs! (Not a good newbie Soft ByTheWay!)

I went to their website and I didn't find anything useful. I also looked at kde-look.org and they have all their themes and stuff but no info (that I could find) on how to use it. It would be nice if there was some sort of documentation saying: put config files here. COnfig files look like this. They do this. That would simplify it mucho. Maybe I'm sol and I just need to learn python and disect stuff other people have done.

Yeah, if you don't pass arguments to superkaramba, it will open that dialog, that's true. So what you need to do is just pass them:

# superkaramba /path/to/my/superkar_theme/kroller.theme

or maybe:

# superkaramba -f /path/to/my/superkar_theme/kroller.theme

I don't remember

you shouldn't need to learn python before you can do anything.
I've been having fun with the .theme files, which exist outside the .py stuff. You can do a lot with plain text

How do you get the themes to load on X startup? Is there a path I need to add to a file somewhere?

It sucks because I get everything where I want it, shut down X and have to re-do everything when I start X again.

if you use KDE, you can have a script done and place it under
your home directory and then .kde/Autostart

just leave it there.

Mine:

ext042@ext042 /home/ext042$ l .kde/Autostart/kroller.sh
-rwxrwxrwx 1 ext042 ext042 91 may 22 2003 .kde/Autostart/kroller.sh

And the content of the file:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/superkaramba /usr/local/superkaramba_themes/kroller-v0.91/kroller.theme
