    ThumbnailYahoo! Weather Widget 0.1
    (Plasmoid Script)
    Yahoo! Weather Widget written in QML.

    Designed to be reliable and fast.

    Requires KDE >= 4.10

    Read before use

    1. Please fill in your city\'s WOEID* in configuration dialog.
    2. Celsius is bound to metric unit system. When you change temperature unit, the whole unit system will change too.
    3. Don\'t be panic.

    * To find your WOEID, there are two ways.
    The first one is what I recommend. Go to http://zourbuth.com/tools/woeid/ and type in your city\'s zip code or name or landmark. Click Lookup then voila!

    Another one is included in Yahoo\'s documentation. Go to browse or search for your city from Yahoo! Weather. The WOEID is in the URL for the forecast page for that city. You can also get the WOEID by entering your zip code on the home page. For example, if you search for Los Angeles on the Weather home page (http://weather.yahoo.com), the forecast page for that city is http://weather.yahoo.com/united-states/california/los-angeles-2442047/. The WOEID is 2442047.

    This is my attempt of making a light version of my previous theme.

    As with previous version, I'm on Sabayon
    and use COMPIZ instead of Kwin and therefore in Kwin it will look different.


    Plasma Theme
    The plasma i haven't made any original but i have picked what i liked of other themes and made a few changes to them. So to all the original authors a great thank and kudos for the brilliant job!


    QtCurve
    The Qtcurve i've assembled myself and is rather transparent so in order to utilize it in this pack you need to have BLUR enabled in your window manager.


    Color-Scheme
    The color-scheme is like opposite of the dark theme I uploaded.

    Emerald
    As with the plasma i have only taken bits and pieces and made some alterations to it. Again, thank you :D

    Fri, 2014/03/14 - 6:58pm
    Tiling 1.5
    (KWin Scripts)
    Note that this requires kde 4.11 for the config interface at least
    Tiling script for kwin, featuring:

    - A useractionmenu to selectively tile windows
    - Three layouts, two of which (the default "halflayout" and "bladelayout") mouse-resizable
    - The option to deactivate tiling per-desktop via keybinding
    - A configuration menu for floating windows (by class)
    - An option to remove windowborders and a keybinding to toggle it for the active window
    - "Animated" resizing and moving
    - Optional "useless" gaps

    Hotkeys:
    ("M" here stands for what is usually the windows key, "S" stands for shift)
    M-PgUp / M-PgDown: Switch layout for current desktop
    M-S-F11: Deactivate tiling on current desktop
    M-f: Toggle between tiling and floating for active window
    M-u: Toggle window borders
    M-S-m: Swap active window with the master window

    // These may be removed in future versions, unless there is feedback requesting otherwise

    M-h, M-j, M-k, M-l: Switch focus in corresponding direction

    M-S-h, M-S-j, M-S-k, M-S-l: Move window in corresponding direction

    If you would like to help, consider reporting bugs and maybe even sending pullrequests to www.github.com/faho/kwin-tiling

    changelog:
    * Forgot to enable bladelayout, could lead to crashes/script not working.

    * 1.0.1: Fix some issues with panel at the top

    * 1.1.0: Add an option to disable borders
    This should only be used with FocusUnderMouse, as because of a kwin limitation focus can jump and it's impossible to tell which window has focus

    * 1.1.1: Bugfixes and an attempt to adjust to new or removed panels

    * 1.1.2: Enable resize "animations" and bugfixes (again including panel struts)

    * 1.1.3: Retile on layout switch and keep desktop floating state

    * 1.1.4: Bugfixes related to tabgroups and the focus hotkeys

    * 1.2: Properly retile when a client resizes (including borders), "animate" moving, improve resizing "animation", add keybinding to toggle window border and bugfixes

    * 1.2.1: Remove broken tabgroup handling (tabgroups float for now) and add a possible bugfix for some transparency issues

    * 1.3 (unreleased): Readd clients that return (e.g. are unminimized) to their previous tile, bugfixes (including resizing)

    * 1.3.1: Tabgroups, add shortcut (Meta+Shift+M) to swap a window with the master, bugfixes

    * 1.3.1.1: Fix plasmoids immediately closing

    * 1.3.1.2: Fix maximizing, fullscreen and resizing bugs

    * 1.3.2: Fix windows not responding and focus-follows-mouse choosing the wrong window, add an option to open windows as master

    * 1.4: Add option to disable tiling by default, add per-desktop layout configuration (as a line of text currently), add shortcut to toggle borders on all clients (M-S-U), add shortcuts to resize the master window (M-Alt-{h,j,k,l}), minor bug fixes

    DarkFuture 0.1 (KDE Icon Theme)

    Thu, 2014/03/13 - 4:34pm
    ThumbnailDarkFuture 0.1
    (KDE Icon Theme)
    A futuristic vectorial theme for dark desktops

    Have you ever dreamed about having your computer look like a sci-fi interface? I did.

    I tried to develop a clean, monochrome and homogeneous theme with something futuristic to fit in KDE 4 desktops with dark color schemes.
    I use this theme in everyday life (at work and at home) trying to extend it as much as possible.

    Some icons will not display correctly in the systray: I'm still looking for a solution.

    Any help is appreciated.


    How to install from Bazaar
    If you want to easily update this theme don't use the tar.gz, follow these steps:
    1) install bazaar
    2) go in your ~/.kde/share/icons folder
    3) type:
    bzr branch lp:darkfuture DarkFuture

    To update it just run:
    bzr pull
    inside your ~/.kde/share/icons/DarkFuture folder.

    Launchpad announcements will be used to advertise updates (together with this page, obviously)


    changelog:
  • 2010/08/26 First release of the theme (0.1)

  • 2010/09/06 Created a colorizer shell script and added some new icons (available only on launchpad trunk branch)

  • 2011/03/15 Added Chrome, Skype and many other icons. Still working on common icons set

  • 2011/03/28 Added Kalarm and Clementine icons, added some Kmail icons (signatures and encryption) and some mimetypes (trash, shellscript, illustrator)

  • 2014-03-12 Added a lot of new icons. First attempt to replace KDE battery icons (it didn't work)

    +Alkano With Colored Background 0.40 (X11 Mouse Theme)

    Thu, 2014/03/13 - 4:02pm
    Thumbnail+Alkano With Colored Background 0.40
    (X11 Mouse Theme)
    +AlkanoWithbackground is a +Multisized X11 Mouse Theme; +Multisized is my concept for cursor themes with colorful pointers or pointer with colored backgrounds, and is accomplished by defining the colors that we will use in our cursor theme and set the initial size of the cursor, increasing one pixel between each of the colors. This is my original idea.

    +AlkanoWb-big, has defined five colors for background, and the initial cursor size is 60 pixels. Therefore we have backgrounds of #0fd000 Green 60, #ff6600 Orange 61, #0066ff Blue 62, #19e7ff Aqua 63 and #ff0088 Pink 64 pixels.

    [i]+AlkanoWb-medium
    , has defined five colors for background, and the initial cursor size is 44 pixels. Therefore we have backgrounds of #0fd000 Green 44, #ff6600 Orange 45, #0066ff Blue 46, #19e7ff Aqua 47 and #ff0088 Pink 48 pixels.

    [i]+AlkanoWb-small
    , has defined five colors for background, and the initial cursor size is 28 pixels. Therefore we have backgrounds of #0fd000 Green 28, #ff6600 Orange 29, #0066ff Blue 30, #19e7ff Aqua 31 and #ff0088 Pink 32 pixels.


    I have tested it under [i]Cinnamon with Wuffin, KDE with Kwin, Xfce, and Gnome 2/3.x and it works great
    . I added it symlinks for some cursors required for Steam, and all required for KDE, Xfce, Gnome and Unity.

    I would like change a few things so you can expect updates. If you find any bugs, please let me know in comments section.

    If you don't know how to install it, please go to my Alkano mouse theme, link http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Alkano?content=158776, and change the name Alkano by +AlkanoWb-size in all instructions.

    Enjoy it!
    Thanks
