Description:

N.B: THE SCREENSHOTS ARE FAKE; ACTUALLY THERE'S NO WAY KICKER COULD LOOK LIKE THIS.

To summarize the contents of this post, I think kicker should be more gkrellm-like, allowing the artist who develops a theme for kde to have a panel that fits gracefully in the context rather than being a punch in the eye (wait, I'm not saying that it is plain awful, but it definitely is if compared to the beauty and quality of certain styles, windecs and icon sets that we can use with kde).

The idea is to have a fully customizable panel, being able to define themes for it which (among the other things):

- set some properties of the behaviour of kicker (some of which are actually editable and some not), such as having applets looking flat rather than sunk in the panel, hiding the applet handles, defining the parameters of the "mouse over icon" effect and so on.

- define a sort of a "window decoration" for the panel: a stylish border, a "titlebar" and custom "hide left/right/bottom/top" buttons, with custom positions as well (just as an xmmms skin, or an enlightenment windec); moreover, it would be lovely to have buttons to perform other actions too, such as having a button to show/hide the desktop (iconify any window), another one to toggle auto-hide on/off etc.

- define a set decorations for the panel itself, that is a background (color. gradient, or pixmap based), setting panel translucency (if available), stylish panel tiles, pixmaps to be used to render applet handles, applet borders and so on ... got the idea?

This themes would make it possible to be rearranged into custom combos: just the way you can apply a kde-theme and decide to affect, say, just the wallpaper and the windec, you could decide to change just the panel windec and behavior, keeping on with the previous panel background.

I'd be glad to read your comments on this topic; mostly, as I'm not a kde developer and I never gazed at the source code, I'd love to know how far is this from being realizable.

The screenshots are (1:) a fake demo themed panel and (2:) a fake desktop with the themed panel showing itself.

The download is a collection of gimp files used to render the fake scene.

Thanks

Daniele

P.S. : please, don't judge the scrrenshot as I didn't spend much time on it, but the idea.

 Great Idea

I think It's great, and I think this is more a skinning feature rather than themeable.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
