KDE background picture looks ugly

KDE background picture looks ugly

Post by Johan Fredrik ?hma » Wed, 28 Apr 1999 04:00:00

Hello everybody,

I have used Kde for some time now, and it generally works good.  But one
think I have noticed is that the backgroundpicture of the environment
looks ugly. What I'm trying to say is that, a picture that looks great
in gimp or netscape (all the right colors) doesn't look so good when I
put it as a background picture in KDE. It seems like the colormap i s
reduced to 8bbp or somthing like this.  My X server is running 24 bbp,
and I'm not experiencing any other color problems.

Have anybody the solution for this ? Or any tips ?



1. UNIX Devil picture: found (was: Looking for UNIX picture)

Finally I found the UNIX (BSD?) daemon picture. Here is the URL

Now, if I made a picture with the same character (the unix devil
doing something else), would I violate the copyright?

I am still looking for a picture that can indicate UNIX (and its
variants) for my handout.

I want to have a picture of another devil (or an angel?) which
could indicate a "daemon" for my UNIX handout. Or maybe another
picture that "clearly" says ... UNIX. Maybe a cartoon picture of
Linus T. killing the daemon ?(that would be cool).
Too bad I can't draw :-(

Maybe a picture of "login:", or "exit();", or "init" ?
