I want my Dew back!

Postby schrodinger's cat on Thu Feb 18, 2010 9:51 pm

Have upgraded to LM8-KDE, and it's definitely a winner. The only thing is, and I don't mean to insult the artist, but I much prefer the Dew wallpaper to the new Bubbles. How can I get the Gloria artwork back? Thanks.

I agree. The artwork/Theme of Gloria was really sweet!

How about searching on the web a bit and take a look at Zwopper's amazing devaintart site? ;)

Here you go and it's here where you can find the Mint Dew background.

The Dew wallpaper comes with the KDE CE (at least the 64 bit). Go to the Desktop Settings, change wallpaper... I counted at least 15-20 different wallpapers packed with the KDE CE, including the old Elyssa background...

I didn't pay any attention to it but XidCat is right. Dew is still in Mint 8 KDE CE also on the 32 bit version, just checked it. What was my head thinking at the moment i posted the link...? lol. :)

I guess something went wrong with the upgrade on your end schrodinger's cat... i always prefer a clean install above upgrade because of bad experiences. Too many things went wrong in the past for me after such a upgrade.

Well, I had looked in System Settings under Appearance, Desktop, Desktop Theme Details, and Login Manager, and Dew was nowhere to be found, even when I checked off Get New Themes or Get New Wallpaper. I forgot about right clicking on the desktop to access Desktop Settings. Thanks for reminding me. In KDE 4 these options are scattered around in way too many different places. All appearance settings and options should be consolidated in one module. However, even after I selected the Dew theme that was available in Desktop Settings, the login screen is still Helena style, but at least the wallpaper is Dew.

Sorry, I was imprecise in my use of the word upgrade. I "upgraded" my system from Mint 7 to Mint 8, but I did a clean install of Helena and did not just "upgrade" Gloria. I will check deviantart for the Mint 7 login screen, which didn't change when I selected the Dew theme in Desktop Settings.

Aha, i see.... So you want everything back in te Dew style, i thought you meant only the wallpaper. For that you'll need the seperate Mint Dew splash screen/login screen etc.... but where to find that i don't know.
