The Kuartet Desktop is a completely customizable desktop shell built on top of KDE using Superkaramba and Python.
Download and extract kuartet-0.4.0.1.tar.gz
1. open a terminal and change to the extracted directory
2. copy kuartetlib/ to /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/
3. make directory /usr/share/kuartet or /usr/local/share/kuartet
4. copy the following directories into the directory you just made
Kuartet Applets reside in the apps/ directory. You can copy this directory anywhere in your home folder. There is an issue with permissions if you try to run the .theme file in a directory where the user does not have write permission.
Open any of the applets in the apps/ directory. If you encounter a problem, open a terminal, change to the apps/ directory, and run superkaramba from there. Post the error message here or email me.
The Desktopbar resides at the top of the screen and provides simple Desktop related functions (Log out/Lock Screen, a pager, and Show Desktop).
The Taskbar provides a taskbar and System Tray. Clicking the icons shows/hides the applets.
The Sidebar provides an interface to simple applets. So far, I've included a simple clock, analog clock, run/search input box, a system monitor, and a trash applet.
The Manager provides access to bookmarks (konqueror and firefox bookmark support to come), applications, and recent documents.
