Cool Transparent Kicker and SuperKaramba in KDE 3.1

Having found out that the transparent menu and konsole are standard options in KDE (big doh!) i want to find out how to get transparent windows and kicker.

Extensive research has led me to Keramik stuff by mosfat at KDE look and superkaramba. I can't install the mosfat RPM's cos i don't have or something and the only place i found them the link is broken.

Can I have some suggestions/opinions about what's good and bad about this transparency business and the best way to do it: karamba or keramik? Other advantages of karamba, screenshots etc. And tell me if i am missing something important!

Lets do the definitive transparency in KDE thread!


I'd really appreciate it guys.

Hmm... you can get some cool OSX-style bars for superkaramba on ... but they're quite subpar and there's really no way to "replace" the real kicker. Transparent kicker is supposed to be a feature in KDE 3.2, so I'd just wait for that.
