Sorry, I misunderstood your prior email.

I retouched the Debian_Blue theme I built for WindowMaker, and with a 
little work it could be used as the default theme. The original colors 
were overly bright. Additionally I tossed together the beginnings of a 
default theme for KDE using the blue debian swirl image. The theme was 
built using the KDE currently available in unstable. I have no idea if 
it will work with KDE 3. I also don't use KDE regularly so it isn't very 
complete. Here are the links though.

Blue_Debian_2 for WindowMaker
Theme: http://www.shadowglade.net/themes/debian_blue_2.tar.gz
Screen: http://www.shadowglade.net/themes/debian_blue_2.screenshot.png

BlueDebian for KDE
Theme: http://www.shadowglade.net/themes/BlueDebian.ktheme
Screen: Nopey, it's built into the theme. :-)

On another note, the desktop-base package does not have any conffiles 
defined. IIRC this means that any other package install scripts may 
modify files in the desktop-base packages as needed. In which case 
setting a default wallpaper to /usr/share/images/desktop-base/default 
will allow other packages to change the symlink and change the default 

Yeah, this probably seems stupidly obvious, but it's 2am and I want to 
be sure.
