BTBX Splash Set

KDE 3.x Splash Screens

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on


After about six tries with Firefox, I was finally able to upload this here with Konqueror. :P Thanks to Sakasa for making the amazing BTBX Wallpaper here on GPL so others, like myself, can turn them into matching splash sets. :) The original wallpaper can be found here:

The .zip file I've uploaded contains splashes for Amarok, The Gimp, K3B, and Open Office. I've also included the wallpaper and a splash template for others to make their own splashes, if they so choose!

To install:

Download and unzip the .zip file and you will see the splashes are located in the folder for the app they belong to.

Amarok: place splash_screen.jpg in /home/yourusername/.kde/share/apps/amarok/images If the "images" folder doesn't exist, simply create one.

The Gimp: place gimp-splash.png in /home/yourusername/.gimp-2.4 Obviously the "2.4" will depend on what version of the gimp you have. Change accordingly.

K3B: I had to place the splash and background included with it in the folder for the theme I was using. As root, navigate to /usr/share/apps/k3b and I'm sure you'll figure it out. :)

Open Office: I don't have Open Office installed, but the location varies by installation. You might have to try either: "whereis openoffice" in a terminal or do a google search to see if you can find where to store the splash in your distribution. Again, I don't have it installed, so someone please tell me if the splash doesn't work, so I can fix it! Thanks!

looks great! very nice job.

kind of off topic but, what dock are you using?

It's actually just an extra panel. All I did was add a second panel, add the applications I wanted to it, made the panels transparent, and shortened it. :)
