Thread: how to change the color or style of the task manager bar?

  1. #1

    Default how to change the color or style of the task manager bar?

    Dear all,
    I just installed SUSE 11.3 on my PC and used KDE desktop. But the default color and style of the task manager bar looks not so good to me. It's a back and gray bar. How to change its color and style? Should I install something else or just do some settings? I look through the system setting but can not find a way. Could you kindly please tell me how to do that? Thank you.

    Chunsen

    Go to start menu-->system settings-->style and try to change it here.

    there is no way to change its color or level of transparency..

    both were user controlled in KDE3, but it is still impossible to
    change in KDE4..

    which is ok, i guess, since at least now KDE4.5.5 is mostly useful and
    doesn't crash nearly as much as did all through 4.3/4

    maybe in a few more years they will have achieved all the
    functionality lost when they abandoned 3.5

    let me repeat:

    There is *no* way to change its color or level of transparency.

    Sorry my fault. Yes @DenverD is right you can not change the color of transparency. You can change the color in start menu line with that technique who I have already said.

    You can use different plasma themes. The place where you can change these themes is as follows:

    KDE 4.4.4 (default in 11.3): Personal Settings (> General) > Appearance > Style > Workspace
    KDE 4.5 & 4.6: Personal Settings > Workspace Appearance > Desktop Theme

    Also have a look at the Desktop Theme Details.
    KDE 4.4.4: Personal Settings > Advanced > Desktop Theme Details
    KDE 4.5 & 4.6: Personal Settings > Workspace Appearance > Desktop Theme > Details


    Themes can be installed from repositories, i.e. they can be installed through YaST. Those will be available to the whole system.

    Or you can download themes from KDELook.org via "Get New Themes". Themes installed this way are only available to your user account in /home.
