Here's another tip: Add locked=true to the .theme file:

KARAMBA x=70 y=99 w=10 h=10 interval=500 locked=true

To have this theme open links in a new Mozilla tab instead of Konqueror, find the line that says

karamba.execute("kfmclient openProfile webbrowsing "+url)

(line 356) and replace it with:

karamba.execute("mozilla -remote \"openURL ("+url+", new-tab)\"")

oh, and the actual article next to the topics doesn't look like yours in the screenshot, the font is really big, and extends outside of the margins to the right and down

how can i fix that?

hi! how do i add rdf's? i don't see them on urls and am i supposed to? your app appears fine on my desktop. very nice, i agree, tho, a little dark, but manageable. also, if i change the feednames, will it break the theme?

Working on it :) Just make sure
you have toggleLockedPosition set to FALSE
you have SuperKaramba 0.32 installed (0.31 won't be enough)
you have adjusteed Blok.py to display your favourite Blogs
you have a light wallpaper
If some of you are good in graphics, please examine the pixel/box1 to box3 directories to make Blok look nicer :-)

- graphics are too dark (name boxes).
- clicking on "muesli" does nothing.

what's needed, what should be done in my eyes. just as comments and a way to start of :-)

- boxes should pop up, like the weather info panels (click on a day) in liquid-weather.

- manage rdf / rss sources via configure menu.

- highlight new, unclicked entries and switch to the according "tab".

- show an excerpt of the blog entry on mouse over. (eventually)

- maybe over-featured, but also cool:
on startup just show a small box, only containing the names of the blogs. if you're going to click on a name, the box pops up, gets bigger and shows the blog entries.

btw: i like the theme :-) decent style. maybe add a light blue below the names and try to leave a bit more space between the frame and the bottom border.
