You really need to do a better job of explaining how to install these. Not everyone is on OpenSUSE. For example, on Sabayon I don't have a /usr/share/KDE4/apps/plasma/wallpaper folder. Also, there is no obvious method of browsing to add your wallpaper files via the GUI wallpaper configuration screen in KDE. Finally, if I could find where to put the files, do I put the 'vista' folder inside, or the folder + the desktop file within the folder, or just the files in the 'contents' folder? How??? - Aug 15 2014

Sorry, but Windows 8's flat, bland ugly colors are a huge step backward for the sake of consuming a fraction less CPU on limited tablets. Windows 8 looks like it was designed by Fisher-Price.

Instead of spamming gnome-look with many, many versions of the same damn wallpapers, try using a ZIP file to contain all resolutions of the single image which you host on a reputable file-sharing site. Your images are nice, but we don't need multiple submissions of the same image at every possible resolutions spamming gnome-look. - Jul 07 2012

This is terrible if you have two different monitors. It launches at the top of the screen, in between the two screens where it cannot be moved or repositioned. I'd love to use this, but can't in the current state. When will this be fixed? - Aug 29 2011
I have two different sized monitors; one of which I often keep turned off so that I mostly use the larger primary display. How can I reposition this plasmoid to be at the upper center of the main display? I've moved the cursor all over the screen looking for the "grab" controls but to no avail. Any ideas? - Aug 02 2011
I'm able to successfully complete the install script, however, when I try to add the plasmoid to the desktop I get this error:

This object could not be created for the following reason:

Could not find requested component: takeoff

Any ideas? I also tried running the script with the modification of '/usr/lib64/kde4' as another user suggested but I got the exact same error. - Jul 31 2011

Downloaded the plasmoid, then attempted to add it in the usual manner (from local file.) When I attempt to add the plasmoid I get this error:

"This object could not be created for the following reason:

Script initialization failed!"

I'm running Sabayon (Gentoo based) Linux 5.4 64 bit with KDE 4.5.4. Fairly stock. - Jan 04 2011
Saved the file then tried to simply add it via the add widget from local file dialog. Throws up an error: installation of widget failed! Installed manually but then gives "script initialization error" upon adding to desktop. Running 64 Bit Sabayon Linux with KDE 4.5.4 here. - Dec 27 2010

This is absolutely the BEST plasma theme in my opinion - great work!! I only have one minor request. Would you mind updating your descriptions to let those of us who are new to your theme know what the difference is between your various versions? Maybe I missed something, but I have no idea what the difference is between G-remix vs. G-remix-N vs. G-remix-Kuadros, etc.... you get the idea. Thanks for the explanation! - Jan 03 2011

Am I the only person who thinks the new name "Aptosid" is about the stupidest name the developers could have come up with for what was Sidux? It doesn't roll off the tongue and it also makes newbies to alternative OSs immediately think "what the hell is this?!?" I don't know, I thought a better name would have been SidOS, Debiant-garde, or something clever. Mandriva forked to Mageia which seems appropriate. Why couldn't Sidux developers do something similar? As a former Sidux user I'm embarrassed. - Sep 23 2010

FYI for others using the source...

First compile it, so extract the package, go into the folder which was created with a terminal, and execute:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(kde4-config --prefix) ../
make
sudo make install

You really should include a readme.txt file with basic instructions on how to install this. Not everyone is running OpenSUSE. I tried the usual ./confure && make && make install without success. How does one compile the source?????? :-\ - Jul 23 2010

...doesn't mean you should! The transparency feature of Qtcurve is interesting, however, but not very useful if overused. Your theme is very obtrusive and hard on the eyes for long periods. You know what they say about too much of a good thing? Tone it down. Subtle transparency here and there is good, but too much is overkill. - Jul 13 2010

This is a fantastic plasmoid!! I use it on all of my KDE 4.3 and 4.4 RC boxes. Some of us are patient. I'm of the "release when ready" camp so I urge you to concentrate on your studies and update Smooth Tasks when you (and the new KDE 4.4 code base) is ready. Thanks for perhaps the most useful plasmoid to exist on KDE 4.x! I really appreciate all your hard work! - Feb 07 2010

Okay, made those changes exactly as you requested:

Now I get an error when trying to compile:

Did I add the "return;" statements incorrectly somehow? I simply inserted them after the "{" but right in line with the next lines, in both cases. I warn you, I haven't programmed since the days of BASIC! :-) - Jan 10 2010
ooops, meant to say I recompiled (not reconfigured) after making the change. - Jan 10 2010
Okay, thanks for the clarification. Duh! :-) I made the change to the aforementioned file and reconfigured. Activated Bespin and...sadly, no change. Here's the output of the xprop command after the change was made:

build $ xprop | grep -i icon
_NET_WM_ICON_GEOMETRY(CARDINAL) = 562, 1010, 50, 42
icon window: 0x0

Any other ideas? Thanks for the assist! - Jan 10 2010
Hey, thanks! I kind of suspected something like this! I do compile myself from source so I can make the change you suggest. I hate to trouble you, but can you be more specific on where to make the change in 'Cloudcity' directory before I compile? Also, will this be fixed in an upcoming snapshot? Thanks!! :-) - Jan 10 2010
Thanks for trying to troubleshoot this! Here's the output of the xprop command:
