OS X Style Taskbar / Panel in KDE

Reading thru an older Linux Format magazine I noticed a gentoo machine with a theme or emulation of the OS X style taskbar. It reminded me of coverage their had been at the time of some KDE release; the version evades me. I have hunted on Google and not found anything about it. If anyone has this installed or knows more about it I would be greatful for any input. Thanks.

If I´m correct there was a Superkaramba theme for KDE, emulating the OS X bar & taskbar. Go to -> search content, filter karamba and make a search for os x.

Thanks for the info. Found it and installed it. Superkaramba is quite the little themer! Got the OX-X style bar (called tuxbar) working ok. However the other themes needed compiling and I am already trying to fix a KDE headers problem, so no luck installing.

For anyone else who hasn't tried theming their distro, Superkaramba is the way to go! Check out:
