The image comes from the element "widgets/branding" in the current Plasma theme, and the link is the home page of that theme, as specified in it's metadata.

thanks bcooksley!!!!
the images are at
/usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/branding.svgz
/usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/widgets/branding.svgz
or
~/.kde/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/branding.svgz
when i saw at this images i didnt haved a svgz viewer then i didnt saw nothing till i installed inkscape at begining i was looking for a .png file

i changed the image and all was okay but... the image keeps link me to http://www.kde.org, i changed /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/metadata.desktop
X-KDE-PluginInfo-Website=http://www.testpage.com
but still liks to http://www.kde.org, originaly the "metadata.desktop" have this line: 'X-KDE-PluginInfo-Website=http://plasma.kde.org' and the link in branding icon links to a diferent url (http://www.kde.org)

any ideas where can i change the link?

You need to add a section named "[Branding]" with a key of "homepage=http://example.org" below it to achieve the desired behaviour according to the code.

You can use the following command to verify it is done properly:
Code: Select all
kreadconfig --file /path/to/plasma/theme/metadata.desktop --group Branding --key homepage --default http://www.kde.org/

i think i didnt got the idea....
but what i did its not working i did:
first add /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/metadata.desktop a line "homepage=http://example.org" and same at /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/metadata.desktop also deleted "/usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/branding.svgz" and cleaned kde cache
and after
Code: Select all
root@test:~# kreadconfig --file /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/metadata.desktop --group Branding --key homepage --default http://www.kde.org/

http://www.kde.org/

root@test:~# kreadconfig --file /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/metadata.desktop --group Branding --key homepage --default http://www.kde.org/

http://www.kde.org/


now i feel confused about what to do ??? i kinda looked in google about this subject but no one seems to know :O

It appears that your modification of the file was not correct - please revert any changes you made and then run:
Code: Select all
kwriteconfig --file /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/metadata.desktop --group Branding --key homepage <desired url>


This will ensure the change is made following the format of the file.
