KGtk (Use KDE Dialogs in Gtk Apps)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by CraigD 453 comments

Somehow Firefox 2 on KUbuntu Feisty Fawn still uses GTK2 dialogs, even though I have added firefox=gtk2 in kgtkrc. Eclipse does work however. - Feb 25 2008

btw, the line under the 0 is an underscore, but actually represents a space. Hopefully we can make that more clear somehow... - Dec 08 2005

The X cq. V button you mention is not related to the Contact. It actually is the button for showing/hiding the Numpad panel. Hopefully this is more clear when the interface is actually being used.

New Interface for KCall

The patch is against the current Subversion checkout of KCall. We didn't put time in creating real packages as it's still a non-functional prototype anyway.

Hi!

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm afraid though they won't make it in our design anymore, as I feel they're a bit beyond the scope of this project. However, I suggest you take a look at the Asterisk project (http://www.asterisk.org). It sounds like many things you suggest could be better implemented at the server-side (I would even be surprised if Asterisk doesn't already provide some recording functionality). Of course then some hooks to that functionality could be implemented in the end-user interface, like the way we want to provide support for voicemails at some point.

Hi guppetto!

thanks a lot for your suggestions!
I do wonder, what exactly do you have in mind for such a dropdown panel for the numpad? Would it be a panel that floats over the phone book panel when expanded? Or would just the entire window become bigger when it expands? Maybe you can show a simple drawing to illustrate it :)
I'm also curious as to what extent left or right handedness influences the direction in which you operate an interface... isn't it more dependend on the direction in which you read?
About the icons, probably we will just need a few of them. But an open call to the icon designers might be a good idea :)

Hi athleston!

thanks for your reaction. I can assure you that we provide all our work during all stages to the KCall developers. We also get useful feedback from them, and we try our best to meet up to their standards :)

KCall

Telephony by evabrucherseifer 20 comments

Well, I just compiled and installed KCall from Subversion on SUSE 9.3 and I magically got the component added in Kontact. I don't know whether that was added to SVN after 0.5.2 though.
I also know that you can just select KCall when installing SUSE 10.0 and it is automatically integrated in Kontact then as well.

Hi Prego ;)

I haven't seen any updates in the SVN repository either, but Kontact integration is already working.

If you're interested, I'm currently working on designing a new interface for KCall as well: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=30220

I just stumbled across the same thing, but after doing some searching, I think the icon looks too similar to a logo from Warp Graphics, Inc. as found on the top of http://www.elfquest.com/ . - Feb 28 2005

Hi!

I'm no DTP expert whatsoever, but maybe it would be nice to create a template to create CD covers. Or would this application be a bit overkill for such a thing?

You're right about the KDE dependencies. But that does not mean *optional* KDE integration wouldn't be very nice. If you could just detect during configure whether KDE is available and in that case enable some options to use some KDE dialogs that would be great, for example. - Feb 22 2004
