Mega guida per assoluti principianti di IPhone

Premesso che tempo fa spiegai come in Italia l’iPhone sia stato allegramente affossato nelle sue complete potenzialità, va comunque detto che se si hanno i soldi per comprarlo e per un Vodafone Pack base (io ho una ricaricabile e con 3 euro a settimana ho 500 mega a settimana, che sono pochi comunque ma quanto meno mi permettono di divertirmi abbastanza con il mio iPhone) e se si installano i giusti software per sfruttare al meglio le reti wi-fi, l’I-Phone è senza dubbio il più fantastico Pocket PC, di misura, che si sia mai visto sulla faccia della terra.

Dal momento che ora lo possiedo me ne posso rendere conto, ma ho prima dovuto passare per l’ennesimo Pocket PC che prometteva di essere migliore dell’IPhone a parità di prezzo per rendermene definitivamente conto: l’iPhone è rivoluzionario sotto tutti i punti di vista (meno la fotocamera). Vediamo perchè e vediamo come fare per sfruttarlo al massimo (altrimenti è davvero una semi-schifezza).

Introducing the Light Koffee KDE integration

my LightKoffee KDE theme

In another post we saw how bad KDE apps can look if compared to gnome apps, specially when we try to integrate KDE apps into a perfectly working gnome environment.

KDE alone is not bad when it comes to handling windows, buttons and all the remaining eyecandy, on the opposite side, it is even powerfuller and much more customizable than Gnome and that’s for sure but.. it just works weird sometimes, so, I prefer the stability and overall sense of nice looking eye candy that gnome gives me.

So, if the goal is integrating KDE apps into Gnome while we are running my prefered gnome theme, Light Coffe, what can we do? Nothing without some patience. And that’s what I did for you, I created a KDE modification so that you can easily integrate KDE applications with the wonderful Light Coffee Theme. Of course, you can use my KDE integration even alone, without gnome, in a pure KDE environment: at this point my work can be considered a port of the Light Coffee theme to KDE.

That’s why I called this little customization work Light Koffee, with a starting “K”, something that just happens to appear often in KDE applications. You can find my Light Koffee KDE theme and instructions on how to use it in KDE-Look, here.

Hope you enjoy it together with the original Light Coffee theme.

Light Coffee DarkMaster Mod Emerald Theme

LightCoffee DarkMaster mod Emerald Theme

Hi, I’m posting just to let you know that I released this Modification of the standard Light Coffee Emerald Theme you can find in the original author’s home page. The reason why I created this is that Light Coffee’s Emerald Theme is completely transparent while I like the brown look it has in the screenshots. That’s because the background is brown, of course. But I wanted the Emerald Theme to look always brown, dependlessly on the color of the background, so, here’s my Theme.

You can download it from Beryl themes, here.
