im working on the same kde, still not entirely happy with the wallpaper, but i got my conky, desktop switcher, desktop icons (if i had any atm) and taskbar all nicely integrated
the system tray is a tiny bar of icons that ihttp://img856.imageshack.us/img856/9199/bio6.png always hidden in the bottom left, that way i can get notifications and have a system tray without sacrificing looks or space.
also started playing with qtcurve's window theming transparency settings, heres what i have so far...
i figured, my computer can handle kde, and ive been doing a lot with openbox. i want to try to make kde as elegant and functional as i did openbox, but incorporate all the new stuff that kde adds.
Your desktop looks great.
I can't figure out how to get conky to work with KDE.
Conky gets its transparency from the the very bottom layer of the desktop
Kde sets the wallpaper on the layer above the bottom layer. The trick is to use something like feh or nitrogen to draw your wallpaper to the bottom layer. Then set the same wallpaper with kde, and BAM! Kde sets its wallpaper, and conky can read the bottom layer decorated with feh/nitrogen. If you want a gui, grab nitrogen, if youre ok with command line to set the wall, get feh ( i prefer nitrogen, personally )
