TweakHound’s Karamba Theme
Karamba (or Superkaramba) themes have been around for a while.
They are for Linux /KDE desktop users.
This is my theme, folks have been asking for this so here it is.
Sorry I haven’t been able to get to it until now.

—This next part is posted in the README file, (minus the screenshots of course)
Screenshots at the bottom of the page.
Please read though this entire README before continuing.
I didn’t come up with any of this myself. I started with hacking the now non-existant
SigmaDual theme and over the years added bits of code from other themes (I’ve long forgotten which).
I added a bit of code here and there and completely rearranged things. But.
Point being, it ain’t my code.
I did this for myself.
I had never intended to release this to anyone but folks kept asking.
So, here it is. As far as I am concerned you may do with it as you wish.
*** The distro I use is openSUSE, I can’t help with others.
*** Obviously you need KDE and Superkaramba installed.
1 – Save theme to a permanent place.
1a – You installed Superkaramba, right???
2 – Install fonts located in font folder.
3 – Install nbtscan-1.5.1a (see README in that folder)
4 – Install lm-sensors then run sensors-detect.
5 – Reboot
Karamba themes are easy to configure.
(See here: http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/sgeneral.html and here: http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/ssuperkaramba.html )
Right-click on the .theme files and open with Kwrite.
To block a line from executing place a # at the beginning of the line.
To unblock remove the # .
THE GROUP TAG
To make each section easier to place they have been grouped.
To move a section simply change the x axis for horizontal (left/right)
or Y axis for vertical (up/down)
You can change any font by changing the name after font=
You can change the font size by changing the number after fontsize=
HARD DRIVE MONITOR
I’ve put 6 partitions in.
You MUST change the path of any section not / or /home
You can edit the max values to better reflect your upload and download speed.
See the note in that section.
***NOTE: Under openSUSE 13.1 you will have to change network interface name based on device name in YaST > Network Settings
You must have followed the initial steps above.
You must manually configure your LAN range i.e. – 192.168.1.0-254
Works for the Amarok v1.4 family only.
Getting Amarok 1.4:
openSUSE has it in the kde3 repos http://en.opensuse.org/KDE3
Ubuntu – I don’t use it but a quick google serch turned up a couple of guides
RPMS – look here http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=amarok
For your distro, Google it!
I always start with an empty or new session so I needed to autosatart this theme.
If you wish to do the same copy the tweakhound.desktop file to your /.kde4/Autostart folder.
I’ve configured if for a 10 second delay.
You can change it by editing the file in kwrite.
