Yakuake Skins by jaem 7 comments

I don't know what is wrong but i do like your theme and hope someone can give a hint as to how to fix it. Maybe contact the Yakuake author, he/she certainly knows more about this? - Aug 07 2009

whouldn't this be useful as a patch for the kopete devs or for plasma?!? - Aug 04 2009
Device Manager

Plasma 4 Extensions by giucam 175 comments

btw for installation I think newbies would love the following list of commands:
go into folder were you extracted the files and type:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` .. && make -j2
(root password)
make install

Any things missing according to cmake should be installed using distribution installation tools. Generally searching the thing it seems to miss works... - Aug 04 2009

please try to get these features in the default KDE 4.4 device manager... It's really good! - Aug 04 2009

Hey man, this is a very cool visualisation. I was wondering if it works in Amarok 2.x? - May 22 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by mbaszczewski 445 comments

Way cool man. Can't this be imported in playground in KDE SVN? If it were there I would have it, as I use binary KDE svn packages for arch and they include playground/plasma :D - Mar 12 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by dotevo 13 comments

please continue working on this, I would love to eliminate as many systray icons as possible and replace them with plasmoids ;-)

If all features KMix offers can be embedded in systemsettings and plasma, it would save memory and room in the systray. Just like the new networkmgr plasmoid and powerdevil! - Mar 12 2009

Arcade by reynaga 10 comments

it's a nice game, and it's cool you made it freely available (though it would be even cooler if it was Free Software) but what does it do on a KDE software site? It is in the category KDE games, but it's not a KDE game at all, is it?

Of course it *runs* in KDE, but then again, what app doesn't? If it makes no use of the KDE/Qt libraries, it has no place here. - Sep 30 2008

Agreed! Please keep working on this! - Jun 27 2008

Plasma Themes by AdrienV 67 comments

Plasma's own interface for downloading and updating themes works fine, but thanks for the offer ;-) - Jun 27 2008

Plasma Themes by ireko 27 comments

this is an amazing theme! Please keep the transparent borders, they make the theme quite original... The only thing I dislike is the rather large border around the panel. The panel could look better anyway - it looks a bit out of place... I have no suggestions about how to fix it, but hey, you're the artist, I'm sure you can come up with something ;-) - Jun 27 2008
Oxygen Connections

Plasma Themes by jmthomas 2 comments

this is a very nice theme. I do miss the gradient in the background of Oxygen, though. It makes the applets still look a bit out of place. Als I'm not a big fan of the blue border above the panel - just use the same thing the plasmoids have, and as thin as possible to not waste space... - Jun 27 2008

dolphin+tab, please make it happen!!

Desktop Concepts by fapasv 9 comments

you should use konqi and keep Dolphin clean and easy to use. Tabs don't really add to it: you can drag and drop between two panes or two windows. If you're such a poweruser you need to open many many windows, you probably also want the split-windows-any-way-you-want, plugins and other cool stuff from konqueror anyway - and we shouldn't turn dolphin into konqi. - Mar 28 2008

This is neath. Any chance it will have integration with KOffice and it's note editing feature as well? - Mar 28 2008
Emoticons System Settings module

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by LeeSieLung 10 comments

will this be in KDE 4.0 by default or is it going to be 4.1 material?

(of course, you can view this question as a "get it in KDE!" request) - Dec 25 2007

System Software by ChaosWars 40 comments


Great work on this... Looking forward to it. Imho it should become part of KDE 4 by default, either integrated in Ark or as a standalone util... - Dec 25 2007

As I want to see how fast QtCurve is on KDE 4, I tried to compile it. But:

In file included from /home/kde4/QtCurve-KDE4-0.55.1/config/qtcurveconfig.cpp:45:
/home/kde4/QtCurve-KDE4-0.55.1/common/config_file.c: In function ‘bool writeConfig(KConfig*, const Options&, const Options&, bool)’:
/home/kde4/QtCurve-KDE4-0.55.1/common/config_file.c:1155: error: ‘OnlyLocal’ is not a member of ‘KConfig’

Can you fix this, or is it my fault? - Dec 24 2007

Graphic Apps by koral 61 comments

I bet it has to do with qmake. For me, I could only compile this within my KDE 4 development environment, and not from within my normal userinstall. Pretty weird, considering the output of qmake -v from both:
09:32 AM kde4:~/>qmake -v
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.2 in /home/kde4/qt4/lib

12:16 PM superstoned:~/>qmake -v
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.2 in /usr/lib

In other words, both use the same Qt version and are the same qmake version - yet I get the error you describe when I compile this in my normal account, while it works fine in my kde4 account. Yep, weird... - Dec 09 2007

Graphic Apps by koral 61 comments

very nice app!

I also have some suggestions:
- It would be lovely if this supported more fileformats (I guess you could easily use some KDE infrastructure for that - would also improve the file dialog ;-)
- It would be useful if a photo came to the top of the stack if you click it (otherwise there is no way to get them to top, right? I didn't find one)
- would dump the two color things, just one like plasma applets have (use the same icon?)
- I was unable to change the colors of the photos, the middle color changer doesn't work. Also, it'd be good if it was easier to find them (maybe just use buttons?). animations are cool, thoug... - Dec 08 2007

Screensavers by tvb-xxx 130 comments

Hmmm, compiling from source isn't easy if you're a newbie. But I can give some hints (and there is a lot of documentation out there):

you will need the -dev versions of the KDE packages, so kdebase-dev or something. This will also pull in most other stuff you need for compiling. Then it's up to you to start the 'configure', and see if everything is in place. So go to the location you extracted the archive in, and do ./configure -> then in the output you most likely find errors, it complains about missing stuff. Googling and searching in your package database will then help you to identify and install the missing stuff. Re-run configure etc, until it tells you to start make. Do it, then become root (sudo su) and do make install.

Good luck ;-) - Oct 30 2007

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by morgenrot 6 comments

most are in "kde-extras" packages (or a name like that). There aren't that many you can download anywhere, because they must be C++ (and thus need to be compiled for your distribution).

Expect to see this change sometime in the KDE 4 series ;-) - Oct 14 2007

Sorry, the gnome deps aren't really what they (and /me) want. Can't you just use KNotify? - Sep 23 2007
Leave Message clone from gnome-2.20

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by cjacker 5 comments

Will this be part of Kubuntu 7.10? And KDE 4? Love to see it in those... I've notified the Archlinux KDEMOD maintainers for inclusion in Arch linux ;-) - Sep 23 2007

Education Apps by ita256 152 comments

you know, you should really try to get this in KOffice by writing a flake shape. It'd be very cool to easily integrate such documents in kword, kspread and the other apps... - Sep 23 2007

Really great you decided to continue working on your style. I was a bit disappointed in the decision to trow away your code, as I liked your work. So I'm happy you continue with it!!! - Sep 07 2007
K4 Theme Package

Various KDE 1.-4. Styles by Yaccin 41 comments

the fact that it is impossible to have KDE 3 look as cool as KDE 4 must be frustrating ;-)

eg you'll never get the cool background gradients, the animations (not implemented yet, but they where in the 'old' version) etc... - Sep 06 2007
Kirocker Music Display

Audio Apps by Sebien 324 comments

Hey, love the theme support! really cool work. Please continue to work on this, and port it to KDE 4 asap as well - would love to have this by default in plasma for KDE 4.0. That can still happen if you're quick enough, you know...

One feature request:
Random theme choosing please ;-) - Aug 31 2007
Wikipedia Dump Reader

Education Apps by benji2 34 comments

Pretty neath. BTW do you happen to know what happened to the integration library for wikipedia in KDE? There was supposed to be a library to make it easier to have wikipedia info in KDE apps, like currently in amarok and Marble and such... Maybe it's something for you ;-) - Aug 31 2007

Audio Apps by Sebien 324 comments

hey, can I say again I love kirocker? Haven't checked it out in a long time, just updated it. Lovely, all these animations and the improved fullscreen mode ;-)

Suggestion: mnaybe lyrics in the mainmode?!?

Thanx for all the work! - Aug 12 2007

Audio Apps by PxPert 37 comments

I think it's way cool ;-)

Though, to be honest, the music player field is filled for me, with amarok... Sorry about that ;-)

Can't you make amarok support mpd or something?!?

Ahh, maybe amarok screws up 2.0, and everyone will start using your app cuz it's like amarok 1.x ;-) - Aug 10 2007
first, this is not a KDE app. Second, we don't want each app having a different look and feel - that's bad usability. So KDE apps mostly don't support extensive theming, and that's a good thing - there are the global KDE themes so all apps look the same.

And last, apparently you didn't make this yourself, but stole it, without notifying nor mentioning the original author. Bad you... - Aug 01 2007

KDE 3.5 Themes by jolpater 2 comments

I love the Ubuntu colors as well, and it would be lovely if you could recreate the Ubuntu look for KDE (you can use qtcurve to get very close to the Ubuntu look). I'm not very good at color stuff, so I've been unable to do it myself properly... - Jul 02 2007
Katapult-Fast Track

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by dilettante 81 comments

Nice work on this, looks good.

I think the reason Katapult was/is/seems abandoned is that the normal Run dialog in KDE 4 inherits most of it's functionality (effectively replacing it). Now it's cool to have an updated Katapult for KDE 3, sure, but it won't live very long, I'm afraid.

It'd be cool if you could find something to do with plasma, it seems there's quite some buzzzz there :D - Jun 27 2007

KDesktop transparency support

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by xonestonex 24 comments

If you've never worked with sourcecode, you'd better first look for a tutorial about building your own packages.

Anyway, I can give some hints:

When you have the sourcecode, you can apply this patch with the patch command:
Go to the source folder, do:
patch -p1 < [location&name_of_patch]

then compile and install. - Jun 08 2007

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by bico 16 comments

well, the kickoff patches are pretty cool, you might want to send them upstream. That's not hard, get on the mailinglist and send them, or add them to bugreports (if they solve the problem there). Or open bugreports and add the patches there... - Jun 01 2007
