Last changelog:

14 years ago

0.2.2
*really* fixed the kicker option now. It would appear that the ~/.kde/share/autostart does not overlay the $KDEDIR/share/autostart entries in that if you don't set a var in your local copy ... its not set period. So panel.desktop no Exec= ? guess what doesn't start? =)
Sorry about this one guys. should have tested better.

0.2.1
Fixed default for kicker option NOTE: this only affects the users who have never ran 0.2
Anyone who is having problems with kicker not running on startup needs to enable it in tweak or delete the entry found in ~/.kde/share/autostart

0.2
Add option to disable kicker on KDE startup
Added Missing Icon sizes
Added option to disable Access Keys
Added option to disable shutdown/reboot in logout dialog
Reorganized the UI
Fixed bug where Disabling Archive expanding in the sidebar wasn't working

really nice work! maybe you can add this as a kcontrol module (kcmshell)? anyway, it's very usefull.

aah, it already is a kcontrol module... great!

btw maybe some of the features can be put into the respective app interfaces, like konqi - close icon on tab on mouseover. the current option could be a dropdown menu, giving more options but not making the interface more crowded.

how about adding the option to enable/disable smooth scrolling?
the command is kwriteconfig --key SmoothScrolling --type bool false

I'd prefer a config file and group/variable name with possible values than a command.
We'd also need to figure out if this is a KDE thing or a distro-KDE thing. I'm not sure I have a smooth scrolling option. still have yet to test out that command. But when I do that'll tell us.

i don't get an error when i type the command kwriteconfig --key SmoothScrolling --type bool true (i guess that turns it on). but i don't see any difference, tough it may only work in certain apps, or after logout/login?

We want more options!
Where you find this options? or where i can find more ?
And i have one for you: the kmenu's leftside tower image option...

~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc
add:
[KMenu]
SideName=tap.png
SideTileName=bottom3.png

But, for me it's bugous, i'm dunno why, i'm spent a horu for this, but i only can change it successfully once, and then it disappears any optioning....

Sorry for my english, and kepp up good work:)

Thanks I'll test it out.
All the options I found on kde's wiki.
Just search for "Secret" and it'll give you all the options in this applet, and then some, tho I tried to implement as many of them as I could.
The next version will have the don't start kicker option available :)

This is a really good idea. I've been looking for something like this. Unfortunately, I have some compiling problems. Seems make removes the configure script and then tries to find it:

[11:13:53] ~/hda/source/tweaK-0.1 $ make
cd . && rm -f configure
cd . && make -f admin/Makefile.common configure
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/sam/hda/source/tweaK-0.1'
Can't open configure: No such file or directory.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/sam/hda/source/tweaK-0.1'
/bin/bash ./config.status --recheck
running CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash /bin/bash ./configure --no-create --no-recursion
/bin/bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
make: *** [config.status] Error 127

I'm not exactly used to compiling stuff myself, so if I'm just being ignorant about something normal please point that out.

Thanks!
