KDE Appearance


Hello
I have KDE 3.3.2 should I upgrade to 3.4.
I want to change my look of my desktop.
I want to use Crystal
This is website with it.
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show...a61c4df28f59e8
I installed it but I don't know how to apply it to my desktop.
Also I want to change my spash screen. I download a spash screens but when I add it doesn't come up. What should I do.
If anyone knows if any good themes, programs, or websites for KDE would you tell me.

Thanks again.

It's up to you. Some of the improvements between 3.3 and 3.4 look pretty nice, but you'll have to have a look for yourself and see whether it's worth it. Personally, if you can spare the bandwidth to download it, I would recommend the upgrade.

Assuming you've compiled and installed it correctly, you should be able to apply it by going to the KDE control panel, and selecting Appearence & Themes -> Window Decorations, where you will find a menu to select it.

You might also want to have a look at the help section of kde-look.org.

Also, have you checked out Crystal-GL? It's a bit resource hungry, but it doesn't half look nice.
