Description:

Here's the official KDE splash screen from my website Alien Reverence. Just a little something I came up with. I did everything in the Gimp except the icon set which came from the Alienware themed splash screen. Let me know what you think, hope someone enjoys it

1)slight changes to theme file

2) Thought I'd mention the theme says 'Analyzing Alien Technology' at the bottom where all the loading text is. This messege is only displayed for a second, afterwards the usual loading kde stuff comes on. Thought it was fitting :)

Hi! I like the image, but the font in the text saying "Beyond understanding" IMO should be changed to a more "alien-looking". The current font reminds me baroque style (I dislike baroque). Pehaps a font like "Crillee", "Futura_poster" or "Impact Condensed" would be more appropriate.

Keep up the grat work!

I picked the font because it seemed a little odd and seemed to fit into my theme okay. Personally I like it :) Though I was interested in your comment and found that I don't seem to have any of the 3 fonts you mentioned. You have me curious :) If you let me know where I might find these files, let me know. Or you could even email them to webmaster@alienreverence.com. I'd be willing to try it out and perhaps offer an alternative version in conjunction with the one I already have here. Anyone else think the project could be benefited by changing the 'Beyond Understanding' Font?

This looks great! I downloaded it and tried to install it. The kde splash screan did not recognize the file. When I tried to install manually all I get is a blue box. So I downloaded it again and the same thing. Possable corrupt file on upload?

Thanks for all the work!

I have taken a look at the tarball and made a few change's to the theme.rc, you must extract the contents of this file to the Ksplash directory (ex. /usr/share/apps/ksplash/themes) So the directory that is created after you extract should be AlienRev. I'm using it right now and it works great. If the problem was a corrupt upload, that should be fine now. I have downloaded it from this page and then installed to my KDE sucessfully. Thanks for your intrest and comment, much appreciated :) Let me know if you still experience difficulties
