Kaptan is the “welcome” application of Pardus, a Linux desktop distribution developed and maintained by the Turkish National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology (UEKAE), an arm of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK).
It is a user-friendly, point-and-click application designed to help you configure some basic settings of the Pardus desktop, and it is usually run at first boot, but may also be run at any time.
This article is used to show the options configurable from Kaptan. The screenshots were taken from an installation of Pardus 2011.1, the latest stable release of Pardus. (You might be interested in reading Pardus 2011.1 review.)
This the the first page of Kaptan. Kaptan, by the way, is Turkish for captain.
Clicking behavior, that is, whether files and folders should open with a single or double click, and the button order is configured at the first step.
And you choose a theme in step two.
Kaptan gives you three menu styles to choose from – Kickoff (the default), Classic, and Lancelot.
Choose a wallpaper from the next to last step.
And access KDE System Settings and support links at the last step. As stated earlier, Kaptan may be run at any time, but keep in mind that the application does not keep state.
