Windows 2000 Theme
KDE 2 Themes
Score 49%
Description:

Now A full fledge theme with colors, sound and wallpaper but without icons. Since this theme with icons will be of 1.5mb, and I have had problems uploading it. So, Please download the "Windows 2000 Icon theme" from the "Icons" section.

Unfortunately KDE Thememanager doesn't have any documentation or options to add other stuff like KWin Style, Style, Mouse options etc., to make it more windows like. I suggest you to manually set the style and window decoration to 'Redmond' after the theme is applied.

I have created this theme to make ex-Windoze users comfortable with our Best KDE. I was converted to KDE by the Windows2000-1.1.2 theme by Roberto Martin Garcia. I feel that this will ease the ex-windows users fear-of-the-new-desktop syndrome ;). Hope you like it.

Thank you, your work is great.
For all the people that ask "why the f**k do you THINK about setting a win*&%$ theme/style on a soooo nice linux ?", here is my answer :

I LOVE linux
I HATE windows

but my boss does not like that I work with linux

so with this theme, he does not notices anything ;-)

and most of all, the best point is that I forget that I am under linux (because I must use windows also from time to time), and when I click and use it, I think "WOW, how is it possible that my windows is so great to use today ? It is faster, so reactive, finally, this crap is not so bad..."
and suddently, I remember konsole does not exist under win$ :-D
Ah aaaaaah NOW I understand why I am happy to work today !
Long live to linux ;-)

This is the truth.

And each time, I fall in love again with my favorite os LINUX !!!!

Even when it is disguised, it is impossible to hide its performances and pleasure to work with !

Printer CanonS400 @ CUPS prints 3x (maybe more x) slower than @ Windows :( But this isn't KDE problem... ) Have you any ideas howTo print fast ? Btw: I'm using driver Canon BJC 6000, because with CanonS400 driver prints more slower and uglier (colors).

I have problems with my TV-card only. My SuSE knows the philips-chipset but it doesn't work anyway. But - fortunately - I don't need my card any longer =)

I' going to install Slackware later on - maybe slack knows how to use this card...

I'm running Kubuntu Breezy 5.10, and I have had no trouble with hardware. Everything works out of the box!

Here's the challenge that Kubuntu passed (out-of-the-box):
Athlon processor
Via chipset
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (albeit, 3D required an apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx)
Audigy 2 Platinum
Linksys WUSB11 Wireless USB Adapter
HP PhotoJet 7350
Yamaha UX16 USB-Midi Interface
Gravis USB GamePad
Kodak DX7630 Digital Camera
iPod


Now, I haven't tried:
Belkin VideoBus II
Hauppage WinTV USB

but, we'll see!

all hardware sucks, all software sucks.

First of all, the most troublesome part in my notebook is the CPU. Yes, that's right - CPU. It's 1600 Mhz AMD sempron, which constantly works at 800 Mhz (even in the BIOS boot screen it's 800 MHz).

Next, power management. It takes too much effort to make it work as expected.

I know the fix to this!!! Why? I have the same CPU and the same problem. Turn of the powernowd daemon!!! I'm on Kubuntu so the command is first

/etc/init.d/powerdnowd stop

then

sudo update-rc.d -f powernowd remove

on RH SuSE or Mandriva do

sudo chkconfig powernowd off

for the second command ... the first one will kill the $#@#$ daemon and the second one will make sure it doesn't turn on again after reboot.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunantely, I don't run any power-saving daemons, and cpu scaling is off too.

I once saw a forum post about the same problem with the same laptop model - the guy was using winslows. The forum was in german, so I only understood that he used some utility for windows and succeeded.

Hi,
I had the same problem with AMD64 laptop. The CPU was going on 800 MHz only. I installed (yes, installed, not uninstalled) powernowd and configured it (you can choose the 'style' of powernowd behaviour in the config file), and.. It worked! Now laptop works on 800 Mhz when it doesn't do anything special, and turns to 1500 MHz when it compiles something. Just great :)
Just give it a chance!
Good luck

Thanks for your advice. At first, powernowd threw an error, then I looked at my kernel config and saw that I've enabled the wrong CPU support under "CPU scaling" (Stupid AMD calls both k7 and k8 based CPUs "semprons". Mine is k8-based, but I'd enabled the k7 support. Doh). I've recompiled the kernel, and powernowd works just fine. Thanks!

Inevitably, I have trouble getting my wireless Internet working. Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS are the only distros I can get it to work correctly on with little to no trouble.

I also have problems with sound lagging video, as someone mentioned above, though it only gets bad quickly with Flash.

... and my softmodem is causing most of my troubles.

I acctually don't care if the modem on my laptop works or not, I'm currently sitting on 24MiBit broadband so a slow 56KiBit modem is nothing compared to the broadband.

And second of all. The integrated graphicscard on the motherboard of my laptop is an Intel i810 which means that there is kinda no way to get tv-out to work properly with atleast current versions of xorg.

It's the printer, definately the printer.

The next one will be a nice laser with a network socket, but in the meantime, we have less than perfect USB inkjet that sometimes decides to co-operate with CUPS.

Crappy proprietary drivers from ATI. Serves me right for not sticking with nVidia. I've learned my lesson. I'm never buying an ATI product again.

Right now I would say that it's all over the place what people are having trouble with. Most likely I suspect because of how people use their computers. That in itself is all over the place. In order to get useable data you may need to narrow the scope of the question. Such as "Where are laptop users having the most problem." or "Where do multimedia users have the most problems"

You're probably right, however polls should be for all visitors of this site and not everybody has a laptop or uses multimedia hardware.

Ok, but how come on my suggestion you get specific. I sited 2 examples where based on the poll it might be advantageous to get more specific. I don't recall saying that only Laptop using Multimedia Gearheads could participate in anything.


I attempted to make a constructive observation, that might have lead to creative discussion. If you feel that it was a personal attack sorry. I find that kind of action to be too much of a bore,a nd therefore I don't participate in attack commenting. I'd rather know things like. "Since the incoming data is so spread out. Is this indicative of an overall weakness or are there hundreds of pockets of weakness?"


I was under the impression that this was to foster discussin. Maybe I misinterpreted, and if so, I apologize.

I voted "Scanner", because there is no good, intuitive, well maintained scanner application for Linux.

Yes, XSane is good and has quite a bit of features, but it is not easy to use.

I'm waiting for the next generation Kopete release in KDE 3.5 and I hope that this greeat app will give me full support to my QC-messenger cam (or better,that it's able to use the driver well).
I think also that is a great thing to plane a set of apps dedicated to the cam world, for example a GUI (or replacement) for xawtv in KDE, i want to grub, edit and store my cam-video guys!:)
mmm maybe also a vlc-like (with streaming capability) app it's not a bad idea...
whot do you think about?:)
