 KSplasherX for KDE4 alpha 1

This is KSplasher (a convenient Splash Screen
Editor and Creator) but for the new ksplashx, the
splash engine for KDE4.

At time, you can create functional Splash Screens,
but they can't be easily scaled as the one you see
in the base KDE installation, but soon. That means
that what you do in the editor screen is the final
result so if you need bigger icons, you need to
use a small background (or resize your icons, and
then use it on KSplasherX).

Anyway, you can test your screens, and save as
Directory or .tar.gz file. Also you can change
author info, etc.

Editing a splash screen is still unimplemented
(and maybe will never be, due to the lot of
options in description.txt file) so this maybe has
to be renamed from "Editor and Creator" to just

You need pyqt4 (python-qt4) and PIL

If you think you're capable to write some script
(or make better mines) for generating animations
(see filters.py in "modules" filder) plz contact

Any other help will be appreciated (translations,
icons, logos, artwork, etc)
Well see ya. Good Luck.

2.0 beta 2:
- You can now load pictures in any format (program
automatically convert it to PNG)
- Fixed position bug for different scales
- Change max icons to 5 for better compatibility
with init stats
