I am one of those KDE 3 die hards.

With KDE 3 I was able to set my wallpaper to an image, and then to add a solid color (with some alpha value) on top of it. I find it makes the background interesting but not destructing.

I can't find this feature in KDE 4, however.

Is it missing all together, or did the KDE devs just moved it to someplace I can't find?

(answering myself)

The best thing I found so far is the Day and Night Wallpaper over at It does not do what I need it to do, but it should be relatively simple to adapt the code for my needs.

I will update this post if and when I find the time to do this work, or if I will find a better answer.
