Replacement for Konqueror's CSS File

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by timrs 9 comments

Sorry, I like the idea of improving the too much default size of buttons, but what you have done is make the buttons SIZE-FIXED!!!!

Note that with the default css if you press "Ctrl +" the button size is increased with the text it contains. Note too that with the default css the size of buttons can be customized in each web css.

But with your css the height of buttons is fixed, not modificable, not increased when pressing "Ctrl +", nothing.

Please, you could improve it. Just make not so big the default button height, but not make it fixed. - Sep 04 2007

audiokonverter

Dolphin Service Menus by labrum 229 comments

It's a really useful extensión but IMHO with some usability issues:

- It asks the user for the folder to the new file. Why? The most common action is to leave the new file in the same directory but audiokonverter forces the users to navigate from his home again.

- A common option could be delete or mantain the "old" file, option which doesn't exist.

- Openning more and more dialog window for each question is not cool, it's a pain in fact.

- Opening a console is not cool at all.


So I suggest the following:


When the user invokes audiokonverter a configuration window appears (always).

This window contains:
- Destination directory browser (BY DEFAULT the current one in which the audio files are).
- Checkbox to delete or leave the "old" files.
- choosen codec own parameters (quality, bitrate and so).

When the user press "ok" the window becomes a new window containing:
- A cool bar progress (maybe possible?)
- Info about already encoded files (if hte users selected more than one).
- A log box (coul be a console kpart?) hidden by default with a button "Show details".
- A common "Cancel" buttom.

Regards. - Jun 19 2007

Congratulations, I knew nothing about SMplayer and after trying it it seems really good. I hope it will be improved to become the best multimedia player for KDE. - May 12 2007

I was waiting for this so long!
It's really great now.

Just a suggestion for usability:
It could be great if the options for "split terminal" appear when clicking with right mouse button on the terminal himself instead of in the tab.

Another wish: possibility of recording and labeling open sessions with their tabs and URL. I suppose it depends on Konsole anyway.

Thanks for all. - May 07 2007
KShutdown

Utilities by kdt 80 comments

This features could be really great semi-hidden in an "Advanced" button when the user press in "shutdown" icon.

But there is no sense this app to exist as standalone app.

I hope your goal will be to contact KDE developes to do a real integration in the "shutdown" dialog. - Apr 19 2007

Really? if you export the X to use an application in other computer, you will not have access to your using computer with that app, which just will see the "native" computer.

It's not enoguht.

And it's not very cool that the aspect and colors of an app (a X exported app) is very different of the apps in the working computer. - Feb 07 2007

Kaffeine Player

Video Apps by juergenk 179 comments

First of all congratulations for Kaffeine and the changelog. Now my question/proposal:

I see the four tabs in the left sidebar and wonder why they are so small and why just the selected tab shows its label.

There is enought space to show the descriptive label of each tab, making them more intuitible, since the icons are not too much descriptive (it's difficult).

There is another issue related to the actual left tabs: Changing between them is difficult because their height changes everytime the user clicks in each one and the text label appears.

So IMHO all the tabs should show the label, even if they are not selected, making them more intuitible and easier/bigger to click into them. All would be advatages.

PD: Note how Amarok uses the left tabs: the text always visible and the height adaptable to the window size.

Just it, thanks again for Kaffeine ;) - Nov 23 2006

KIconDialog++

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Linuster 58 comments

The actual icon dialog load takes long time loading all the icons each time. It doesn't use cache for showing them quickly.
Have you considered improving the speed by using icons cache?

Good job! - Sep 07 2006

Kbfx Startmenu by subzero17 10 comments

Sorry, I didn't want to offend with my comment, really. I simply see all the days more and more KBFX themes, but I've never seen a KDE distro that uses KBFX by default. And I've read some discussions about the menu in KDE4 but never read nothing about KBFX and KDE4.

If KBFX is a good project let's go, but what about KDE4, Plasma and that? will be there place for KBFX in KDE4? should KBFX be the emnu in KDE4?

I repeat that I'm sorry for my comment. The last days I only see more and more KBFX themes in KDE-Look, no more and I had some doubs.

Regards and good luck with the project. - Jul 24 2006

Kbfx Startmenu by subzero17 10 comments

Ok, obviously the design is better than actual Kmenu, but the last version has the scroll down button in the top still, that is IMHO a big usability issue. - Jul 23 2006

Kbfx Startmenu by subzero17 10 comments

First of all I'm sorry for this comment here. It's not about your desing, but about KBFX:

I think KBFX is a bad designed menu. Note that the scrool down button is... in the top corner of the menu! how is it possible? it's the worst concept about usability I've ever seen.

Sincerely I hope the menu in KDE4 will be completely different of the actual Kmenu and KBFX. - Jul 23 2006
Soccer Argentinia

ohhh, soryy, I've just realized that your are germanish. But the question is the same: why you say "soccer" instead of "futbol"??? just because the people in USA say "soccer"??? - Jun 18 2006

Kbfx Startmenu by subzero17 6 comments

I think the same. You are not from USA, then way do you say "soccer"?????
Please, the people in USA say "soccer" to distinguish "the american futbol" and the "rest of world futbol", but you are from Argentina, so... it's ridiculous. - Jun 18 2006
"MS Word" - KWord Toolbar Style

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by maarizwan 14 comments

Of course, or the user can modify the toolbar buttons... or recompile it.

"MS Word" - KWord Toolbar Style

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by maarizwan 14 comments

In fact I don't know how MS Word looks (maybe long time ago...), but I like your toolbar more that the toolbar by default of Kword.
Yesterday I was using Kword and it costed me a lot to change the font size because there is not an icon or field for that in the toolbar and I must go to the menu or right click. - Jun 07 2006

KleanSweep

System Software by yogin 134 comments

Have you considered to integrate your fantastic app in KDE instead of doing an individual app?

I mean: could be possible to integrate your app in the future Control Center? or better, could it appear in any way in system:/media when the user is exploring the devices?

I can imagine a Konquerro in system:/media with icons showing the free space (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=34629) and near an option called "free space" tthat open your app. - May 10 2006
[idea] amaroK playlist with album covers

Desktop Concepts by ibc 15 comments

My target was to show the albums together in the best possible way in the playlist. First I used color but I realized that there appeared many times the artist and album, why? is neccesary?
So I decided to improve the idea.

Maybe you are right and I should create a new mockup.

PD: I'd like to know all your opinions, which one is better? - May 08 2006

service menu management to kcontrol

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by blurymind 32 comments

I'll explain my suggestion with an example:

I install amaroK and want it to be the default app fot ALL audio mime-types.
Now I must modify the preferences of ALL the audio mime-types, that it's really annoying.

Couldn't be an easy way to change the preferences of all the audio types in the same time? and the same with images and video.

I know that this is a different sugestion, but because people like your mockup it could be the moment to design a better and easier method.

What do you think about it? do you think it's feasible?

And of course congratulatiosn again for your good proposal. - Apr 27 2006

kBeagleBar

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by dbera 42 comments

All of us are used to open Google in Konqueror when we look for information. So, why another app to look for local information? why not simply a "Bleagle Search" in the Konqueror search bar?

I mean, if I look for a document of mine containing "lalala" text I'd like to open Konqueror, write "lalala" in the search bar in "Local browse" mode, and then all the results appear in the Konqueror window (like Google results).
Maybe I find many documents containing "lalala" so I'd like to open all of them in tabs with "Ctrl+Enter", is it possible in your KBeagleBar?

In fact, in your design the width is very small so it's not possible to show many information in each result. Imagine the Google results in a 50px width column.

So, your proposal maybe very useful, but I'd prefer a integrated Beagle in Konqueror search bar. Or maybe both ideas could exists at time and each one chooses the best for him.

Anyway good job, of course. ;) - Mar 08 2006

IDEA: Alt-Tab Task and Desktop Switcher

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by atomicsmith 23 comments

The design is ok, but there is not the a description in each icon. In the actual format when pressing Alt+Tab there appear the open applications vertically with an icon and description, which is very useful to know each application. In other way, It could be confused. Is not possible a design like the actual (icons vertically with description in all of them) and showing the other desktops in the left and right? - Dec 03 2005
