Description:

Ultra Series - 220 Color schemes pack (v3.2)


This is the final update for the Ultra series. This pack includes mostly non-generic schemes, fully compatible with Domino but also usable with Glow, Powder and Serenity.


Installation. Extract the content of the tarball to $home/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes.


Usability:

* Fonts. Besides the window decoration, the overall look depends mostly on the font combination you use, thus load some programs and try them out first. Alt+F2 -> colors. Select scheme, press Alt+A to try them.


* Backgrounds. Non-white background schemes. Each scheme displays a 3-column icon. The middle column represents the background color. Some applications, most noticeable Konqueror and OpenOffice, use this color for documents and webpages. If this is not the desired effect, this is how to fix it:

OpenOffice -> Options -> Appearance -> Document background.
Konqueror-> Configure -> CSS -> Use accessibility style-sheet -> Black on white.


* Button colors. These schemes are meant to be used primarily with a dark button/light text combination, Glow inherits this color by default, the same effect can be achieved by customizing Domino. As always, it all depends on what you like.


* Konqueror troubleshooting. Konqueror doesn't always display colors the way it should. An easy way to avoid complications is to use a background image instead of a color. I was careful with the integration between background colors and alternative background colors, (this is noticeable when you use programs with list-view modes: Amarok, Gwenview, Dolphin, Kget, etc.) nevertheless this is a limitation imposed by Konqueror and probably the main reason why some users tend to avoid darker schemes.


* Gamma correction. I use my monitor with a default 6500K/2.0 gamma setting, some non-calibrated monitors might require a slight adjustment in order to display properly the darker schemes.

KControl -> Peripherals -> Monitor & Display -> Color & Gamma.


Screenshots. Instead of cluttering the screen with all types of windows like I did in the past, I selected 2 of my favorites. I chose these ones in particular because for the average user they may look completely unusable at first, nevertheless, they are there for a reason. Which ones suit your style, it's up to you to decide.

Update (2008.07.10): Nitrofurano kindly ported the pack to Gnome and Fluxbox!:

Edit (06.2009): It's been over 8 months since my last visit here, is good to see this pack still on top, thanks everybody for their support, I really appreciate it.




Changelog:

2008.03.28. Final update, 63 schemes were retouched. I updated the screenshots.
2008.01.30. I added to the pack 135 color schemes, rewrote and expanded the description.
2008.01.24. 82 color schemes added, total of 85 plus the original scheme. Created pack, rewrote and expanded description, added new screenshots.
2008.01.09. I added the Dusk and Dawn schemes, updated the Dark Ocean scheme so more decorations can use it, modified the description and changed the screenshots #2 and #3.
2008.01.06. I re uploaded the schemes, updated the description, the screenshots and removed the old changelog, which was becoming unnecessarily messy.

Hi there, I wanted to try them but I'm having some trouble downloading it, folders seem to be empty. I know for experience that one shouldn't upload anything unfinished here, the more updates the lower the rating, people will vote bad and if is below the average it will get ignored. Also, the license I included here was just for my schemes, you should include in yours that you're in fact the author of the ports and the python converters to give everyone proper credits :)

well, i downloaded and everything looks fine - 220 theme folders, and 18 files in each folder - works fine on Audacity...

a real complete enough version may take some while to get done (assuming nothing never got really complete...), since the .xpm template needs constantly lots of small fixes... :-(

(i think i can remove/rename/change the post if you want?)

Alright, I'll try again. I was saying that also because of the Fluxbox port, something obviously doesn't work but without feedback is hard to know what.

surelly you'll love this terminal command line:

for i in `seq 0 1000000`; do wget -c http://www.colourlovers.com/export/zip/$i; mv $i $i.zip; done;

up to now i think there are around 500000 downloadable palettes, all cc-nc-sa! :-)

Hi again!. Yes, I like colourlovers and I visit it often, I have an account there but I haven't had time to publish anything yet. Personally I still prefer to make my own colors, I only 'color-picked' a handful like Aesthetic2 and the distros colors, the rest was built from scratch. I don't have access to a shell for the moment, not to mention other things, so I have to save it for later but I'm curious, what do you use all these colors for? You seem to be interested in all this stuff too, I thought it was just me :)

I also enjoy more making my own colour schemes (http://www.colourlovers.com/palettes/new?lover=nitrofurano), but overally colourlovers.com having half-million available seems to be a very interesting source to 'get inspired'. This script also seems to work fine on msdos prompt, since there is a version of wget available as well, but i have no idea about how can we use for-next in a .bat file...

Well, there's no need to use wget, if you can manage to copy the url to the clipboard somehow, programs like getright can download it automatically. Not that it matters at the moment, my W32 partition crashed, but to be fair is a hard drive issue. The MBR is damaged, partly due to leftovers of constant boot crashes and allocation errors I had thanks to the KDE team and their revolutionary desktop. There's a partition that got corrupted and I cannot access using any of the known methods, I previously freed 6GB, good enough to install Hardy but neither PartitionMagic or Gparted let me add or remove partitions unless I format the disk first. I'm writing this using the Ubuntu liveCD, the HD is readable so I can reinstall an OS temporarily and start burning disks, I think I need at least 20 DVDs to clean up everything. What a mess, this is going to take me forever, I apologize if it takes me longer than usual to catch up with messages.

Well, in situations like this, maybe is not a bad idea (if it is a desktop computer) buying a new hard disk, and having this one which you have the lost mbr as second disk.

About download managers, they were fine for downloading between 100 and 1000 files at once, but 500000? and btw, a console application used to be more fast and stable than a gui-based application, specially on ms-windows...

It can be done, it requires a bit of imagination and memory management. I don't know about newer versions of getright but it used to handle a 1000 download queue list without problems, even on my old 64MB pc. It reads a plain-text file only while downloading, pretty much like wget, you just have to make sure to give it a little time to clean-up the queue if you don't have a fast connection.

for (int i=0; i<500000; i++)
{
// new string url + append i
// copy string to clipboard
// wait 2 seconds
// getright adds it to the queue list
// if (i mod 500==0) then wait 60 seconds and resume loop
// by then there's enough room to keep adding more
}

This way only a limited portion of RAM gets used. This same procedure applies to any other download manager capable of clipboard monitoring such as KGet.

I used to have a spare old hard drive, which is now pretty much pointless because is only 3GB, not enough for modern needs. :(

Also, most of the gui problems on W32 are related to bloated libraries, I've seen pretty nice applications built on assembly that can surpase the console performance by far. An average 1MB C++ application can be done with just 100kb of compiled Assembly, you can barely notice it, the load is minimal. The actual problems are that the window console is pretty much useless compared to a proper shell, you can't pipe or do any complex stuff, it got stuck in the 80s, and also low-level languages are very very hard to grasp properly. I tried to program assembly both on Linux and Windows with not much luck.

about assembler, i find myself also stuck into z80 (msx, zx-spectrum) - sometimes i used to do some snippets for emulation, but not much more than this.

I had no idea some people still code on assembler for the more recent operative systems - where from can i see these kind of programs?

Some large applications could be also scripts binded after runtime executables, like this executable have 1mb in size, and the script is embedded after (just like with 'cat script.languagesuffix >> runtime.exe', or like swf Flash projectors... )

I think that the most remarkable example is MenuetOS, an operating system built entirely on assembly, also intended to assembly programmers
http://www.menuetos.org/. I tried it last year and submitted a report of my processor. It may not look much at first but it's certainly promising, it is always nice to see this kind of programs, it reminds me of the way Linux started. Second, fasm, probably the best compiler right now, http://flatassembler.net/examples.php, Third, masm, it comes with a bunch of mini-programs but just for windows. They have a fixed position against the GPL/HLL that put me off, they don't let you release your code with that license. So Fasm is the way to go, however it's too complicated for me, I can't get the language.

Alright, I'm back, sorta. Colourlovers has a public API, I'm sure you can make good use of it, a script to select only the colors you like, filter results and so on.

i also thought about this as well, a kind of sorter script, or randomizer, or whatever, would allow us to get colour schemes or previews before gettng them - btw, i downloaded all those almost 500.000 that time i still didn't analized them with scripts (like getting html index files for an easier browsing)

another example would be a kind of script would load with wget some palettes from there, and get them as choices for a gui colourscheme...

Their Desktop finder works fine, but obviously only a limited number of previews show up.

Also, if you know some C++, the KDE4 port of Domino could definitely use your help.

a script for downloading directly the colour hex values seems to be not that hard at all

from the url http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/474922/Train_Yard

we can get hex colours from a script like:

wget http://www.colourlovers.com/export/html/474922
cat 474922 | grep Hex > 474922.txt
rm 474922

the problem is the result is plenty of tabs, maybe i'll need to use a kind of text replace (or some more unix sub-commands like grep/awk/cut for cleaning it a bit better)

Hi, thanks! I'm afraid I don't have that theme anymore, most of it was hard-coded, (that's how the default domino actually looked to me). In case anyone is still interested, recently I published some basic instructions on how to customize Domino on that page.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
