Description:

This is a modified version of the KStatus Karamba theme which can be found here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=19827.
This is the work of DaBlade (I'm a 16 year old in Norway with no real life outside my computer=) with the help of a few people in #amaroK on Freenode and Joseph Farthing (methlabs.org).
The theme has the following changes:

-- All but two of the icons (not the amaroK control buttons) have been replaced with Crystal SVG 1.0 versions. The one that hasn't been changed at all is the modem one. It looks crystal-ish :)
The other is the XMMS/amaroK one. I found this one with the help of google. Not part of the crystal SVG collection. I think it looks cool..don't you? :)
-- All the XMMS functions have been replaced with amaroK functions.

Oh, and if you think that I've stolen karraskal's theme, that may be true, and if you feel like criticizing me for it, feel free to do so, but the GPL clearly states that people can build upon/improve the work of others.

I guess the weather in Norway doesn't require that you check your CPU and chassis temperature.

I take the hint, however I live southeast in norway, and it's quite warm here for this time of the year actually. Over 10 degrees Celsius.
Plus, I've gotten myself extra powerful silent fans, so I don't have to think about that. If you want that function however, feel free to add it.
(Hey, it's under the GPL :)

... think alike:)

I was playing around with the theme script and did almost the exact same design - icons and all.

My main difference was to use 32x32 icons to decrease the desktop footprint, and delete the background for pure transparency.

To make it all work, I realigned the spacing on the icons so they sit a little closer to each other. I also realigned the output fonts to be readable in the smaller space (without making the font smaller than the original 9-point). Finally, I changed the font color scheme to work on a dark background (although that's not that hard:) )

If you'd like, you can have it as part of your package. No need for multiple versions of the same thing floating around here:)

Sure. Why not?
If you wanna send it to me or whatever, my contact info is in the README file of the theme directory.

Well the only visible differences are the icons, and I included the original ones in the tar.bz.
