Description:

-- English --

This is a side bar for the K menu.

It has been made using Inkscape and the GIMP (because Inkscape doesn't support the font I've used for the text, "ank", downloadable from dafont.com). The .tar.gz includes the XCF and SVG sources.

To install:

1. Extract gskside.tar.gz to your home folder.
2. Type this in a Konsole window (you need administrative provileges, using su or sudo):

# 1. Backup the original image:
cd /usr/share/apps/kicker/pics
cp kside.png kside2.png

# 2. Copy the new one
# "image.png" can be "kside.png", "kside2.png" or "kside3.png":
cp ~/gskside/[image.png] kside.png

# 3. Restart kicker to see the results:
killall -w kicker && kicker


-- Spanish --

Barra lateral para el menú K.

Hecha con Inkscape y the GIMP (Inkscape no soportaba la tipografía que he usado para el texto (ank, descargable desde dafont.com)). El fichero comprimido contiene los XCF y SVG originales.

Para instalar:
1. Descomprime el fichero gskside.tar.gz a tu carpeta personal.
2. Ejecuta estas órdenes en una consola (necesitas privilegios de administrador, obteniéndolos con su o sudo):

# 1. Haz una copia del original:
cd /usr/share/apps/kicker/pics
cp kside.png kside2.png

# 2. Copia la nueva imagen
# "image.png" puede ser "kside.png", "kside2.png" or "kside3.png":
cp ~/gskside/[image.png] kside.png

# 3. Reinicia kicker para ver la nueva decoración:
killall -w kicker && kicker

Estos comandos hacen una copia de tu barra actual, la reemplazan por esta y reinician kicker, para poder ver los cambios.

would you be able to create a sidepanel featuring Britians finest football team?
I have some Arsenal FC wallpapers posted on this site.

I will name my kids after you if you could do this!

it's very beautiful, but the step to reboot the kicker didn't do anything. I had to restart KDE.

Thank you! :)

The command "dcop kicker Panel restart" works fine in my Debian Sid, using KDE 3.5.8.

actually, that dcop call is seriously flawed: it causes undefined behaivor, as destructors of applets and other things are not called when the panel restarts.
much cleaner way to restart it is:
killall -w kicker && kicker
