Description:

I think the video strip down the left of video thumbnails in KDE is hideous, and so here is how to get rid of it:

1. Replace the files in [kde]/share/apps/videothumbnail/ with these (for instance, on Mdk it's /usr/share/apps/videothumbnail.. may also be /usr/local/share/apps/videothumbnail or something completely different - ymmv.
Note: just deleting the originals doesn't seem to work.

2. Delete the contents of ~/.thumbnails in order to force an update of all your video thumbnails.

3. ???

4. Profit!!!

Icon size: 22px, settings: show menu bar (to hide), right click each toolbar and select icons only, drag and drop to put them next to each other, and settings:configure toolbars to get rid of the buttons you don't want.

But how do you get Konqueror to remember not to show the menubar? I can only think of saving the view profile, but then you can't do that without the menubar present!

Ah, actually, ignore me, I worked it out.

Assign a keyboard shortcut to "save view profile filemanagement", remove the menubar, and use the keyboard shortcut to save it :)

Nice work, but to be honest I must say your konqueror toolbars were what I liked the most. Pretty cool.

I don't know why you censored your user log-in name, but you missed a spot. You might want to check the title bar on the Konqueror window.
