Several Questions on Theming/Appearance

Postby chessmaster942 on Sun Dec 23, 2012 7:25 pm

I've installed kde via "sudo apt-get install kde-full" and I've got a kde system up and running, but it currently has a few various bugs... http://imgur.com/WFDRs,TcBtl (the window in the first, and the pop-up in the second), how do I fix these?

I'd also like to know if I can achieve a semi-transparent color for a system color, it is the background color for the window (example: http://imgur.com/5c2FG I would love the background color in the first window to be similar to the second), is this possible, if so, how?

Thanks in advance for the help :D

I'm not an expert, but if you right click on the title bar of a window and go to more actions, special window settings, there are opacity settings in there. (second question)

I made my terminal window background completely transparent that way. I changed it back, as it was too hard to read with everything showing through.

Alright, thanks, I'm away from my machine right now, but I'll give it a try :)

Ok, sorry that was my fault, I'm pretty sure that setting adjusts the opacity of the entire window, where as I just want the "main" panel to be semi-opaque (in dolphin / file manager where the files/folders appear), is that possible?
