Karamba installed but black

Hi All,

I have been trying to install Karamba for more than 2 days without success. It installs and makes the apropriate bin in /usr/local/kde/bin/karamba
When I start it it asks for config files. Here the problems come. I have downloaded many of configs but none of them shows inside the tiny window created by Karamba. They are plain empty or just few things pop up. For ie in case of Calendar config it shows a transparent background but no content. In case of weather stuff it is plain empty.
I can right click on the window and the pop-up comes where I can add new or remove configs.
What did I miss?
Btw: RH9

Thx, Teddy

For karamba weather: Run it in console ' ./' and post what you get. You probabely need to install some python stuff.

i wish i could get my backgrounds transparent , anyways as of the weather, your going to have to config it to look up your city and thats why it is will have to go to and get your city code and insert the address in the file...theres a little more dirty work to getting some of them themes working as opposed to others.
in any case read the readme file that is packed with the themes as it will tell you exactly what to do.
