Metabar

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements

5 .0
Description:

This version is a complete rewrite of Metabar and it is now based on khtml. This makes theming quite simple. You just have to edit the default.css file in $KDEDIR/share/apps/metabar/html. But do NOT touch the layout.html file in any case. This might break Metabar. An option for choosing themes (like in amarok) will come in the next version.

If you are running Suse you need to open konquorer with "konquorer" not "konqueror --profile filemanagement" as configured in the kmenu

Sorry, nevermind that. It shows up. I had to use the resize handle to resize it to the left or right to get it to show up.

I think that the app. is space inefficient & needs to be tightened up
- font and icon sizes for file name & type take up too much space
- the action, information & preview buttons are too large (re: vertical space)
- would perfer single spacing used for 'information' display

Purely my opinion of course

Hi. Call me dumb, but I can't figure out how to use this. I've installed it successfully by the way.

Thanks.

run konqueror, press F9 to show/hide the sidebar, right click it and select Add -> Add metabar. A new tab in metabar will appear. Click it to open the metabar panel.

Thanks. I only can see it on konqueror if I copy the 2 files (metabar.desktop and metabar_add.desktop) onto my own .kde and still when I press it nothing seems to open. I'm running kde3.3.2 on Suse 9.2

Thanks,

Another thing I've found. If I'm running konqueror from the command line it works. Otherwise, If I'm opening my home folder for example, it uses a command: "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement". then it doesn't work. Maybe someone knows a way to go around this?

Thanks.

Hmmm...
metabar_add.desktop should go to $KDEDIR/share/apps/konqsidebartng/add,
and metabar.desktop to /usr/share/apps/konqsidebartng/entries.


Did you just run "./configure" w/o any parameters? Try
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
and then "make install".

The contents of the "action" menu doesn't show in the action section of the bar. I only have Actions in metabar for folders... is it normal behaviour or a bug ?

If not, could you show the actions in the actions sections ?

Thanks a lot, it's a wonderful tool :-)
