About your personal rant:
Do not take it personal. I've also seen Crystal Icons, NOIA Icon set, Ideas about changes to KDE (my kmenu proposal dropped from 92% to 70% in one week), and many others as well.

Looks like there is some poor id10t 1337 kiddie
trying to make the site dissapear. There
have been some discussions about this already.

About your wallpaper: i think it's beautiful,
except maybe for the yellow lightning.. maybe
it can be dimmed a bit..?

i want you guys to criticize, (or at least
not exactly)

yes, but not something Specific ;o)

i agree completely. it COULD get
messy if you enabled everything at
once, but the idea is to have the choice
of what you want and what you don't

(anyway, have you tried enabling
EVERYTHING in the current menu?
like recently used apps, shortcuts
to home directory, find files, 15 different
app categories and so on..... it can
get tall enough to reach the ceiling!)

Please READ the discussion
going on here before you post!

The idea is *NOT* to add ANYTHING
SPECIFIC to the K menu. it's about
making the menu show more INFO!
(i especially like the idea of a plug-in
interface. Although it's not necesary at
all, it would make things a lot cleaner)

"why not in the kicker?"
The Kicker simply does not have enough
space to show uptime, logged users,
and appointment information. And
even if it had, it would make for so
much clutter it would end up worse
than it is now.

>Maybe an aditional menu for that
>kind of stuff, that could be nice.
>like a button that shows a menu with
>(Just thougt of it now).

Two menus? it would only add more

(the plugin interface i keep dreaming about
would probably allow the user to select
where they want the info, so your
suggestion could be possible as well,

>Anyway my point is, IMO the idea
>makes no sense and it is terrible in
>terms of usability.

and IMO a better menu is the only
think KDE is really missing. :o)

It's a few days since i had seen the last
post on this subject so i thought nobody
cared anymore... :o/

anyway. about getting the menu:
I'm sure implementing it requires changes
in KDEbase and maybe even Qt itself,
so if you want to see it getting real,
the KDE developers are the ones to ask
for it. (besides they are probably
beginning to think about it already..
this issue was kinda hot a couple
of weeks ago)

for example, a lot of people seemed
to like the way i drew the submenu
expanding, "centered" with the parent
menu rather than "leveled", but
a theme alone can't do that.....

i've come up with a way to make the
Kmenu show info about new e-mail
messages and other "dynamic" data,
using cron jobs and a couple of perl
scripts. really easy to do....
however, the menu's current
structure -poor!- coupled with the
harsh way in which Mandrake updates
KDE's menu (overriding my changes)
makes my hack rather useless.

I really hope something new and
Good (TM) comes out of this..

Various Stuff by damiancito 86 comments

yes, i agree that no idea is perfect
and no menu will ever please absolutely

However, your iniciative to add
"agenda-like" info to the main menu
IS good. in order to please everyone
the developers would only need to make it

this is exactly why i liked your
'innovative menu' proposal, and
why i decided i would try to help.

and hey, i am absolutely pleased with
the level of acceptance. - Oct 22 2002

Various Stuff by damiancito 86 comments

yeah the items on the right would
definitely be optional. having several
possibilities to choose from is a
good idea.

besides, if the interface to build
new items is simple enough,
hobbyists would be able to make
customized, new menu items displaying
different kinds of information.
imagine here, on KDE-look,
a section about "K menu plugins" ;o)

Yes. excatly.

Colors, icons and drawing style
will ALWAYS depend on color
scheme, icon set and themes.

it's a shame so few people realize this
in spite of my first message.

this is just an ides about the options
that could be added. NOT the
drawing style or color.

"It doesn't have to be slow. If the
dynamic stuff is kept in memory, maybe a daemon running in the background with one single process like gkrellm does. Most of the dynamic information is in the form of text. The daemon would parse information from the /proc virtual filesystem, the system clock and lookup appointment information from korganizer. The Daemon would update itself independent of the menus so their would be no lag time. This could also be a feature that is easily switched off."

This is exactly the kind of proposal i
have in mind.
In fact, there are already (AFAIK) a couple of main KDE processes in which
this kind of functionality could be
implemented without having to start
a plug-in interface from scratch.

Of course, i do realize that this new
menu does probably need a new
menu component...
but hey, somebody teach me how
to code KDE objects/components
and i'll do it myself and post it here!

Various Stuff by damiancito 86 comments

Yeah, i try to keep that in mind.

However, i think even the slightest
change to the way the current menu
works (just a plain, ordinary and simple
list of stuff) requires a new menu "widget"
to be programmed and implemented from

we know by now that it is possible to
add things that are useful, and that people like
a lot.

the "plugin interface" concept would
absolutely RULE. imagine a menu
that would start up simple and small but able to grow into any number of

as i'm typing this, i've already started
a new drawing. I'm using some of
your ideas, too (today's appointments and such)
but of course, this is, most likely,
the kind of thing that a plug-in should do.

yea, i do realize the double-panel
reminds of XP... however i thought
it's worth it, since it makes the
menu much easier to organize.

about the clock.. sure, i thought about
it myself, but later discarded the idea,
since the kicker bar already gives you
one ;o)

hey, plug-in support really is a good idea! that Reminder and Mail
stats uga posted a while ago could
be optional plug-ins...

thanks for the positive input. i hope
the next major KDE release includes
some of this (assuming the rest of
the ppl like it ;oP )

About the "Other Places" item:
This is what i think meant with his "devices" item.

Please note that while i took the time to draw and
entire menu, the only part i wanted to show here
was an idea about integrating dynamic info to the menu
(such as Uptime and other stats, computer name,
logged users (the "user's documents should use the logged user's
name i.e. "Damiancito's Home Directory"), and incoming mail
notification --tho i still believe that one belongs in the kicker tray)

now i wanna hear CRITICISM! but the useful
kind of it, please. ;o)

Wallpaper Other by alois-kde 14 comments

i think the looks of KDE
right after installation need
to be impressive. first impression
is what counts. it's time
to choose some REALLY GOOD
artwork and tell KDE devs
what we want as KDE's default

i've chosen this moment to
say this because these wallapers
were love at first sight.

i say the second wallpaper here
SHOULD be default after installation.

icon set is tougher decision because i still have not seen a truly COMPLETE icon set apart from the default.

oh, and window deco/ theme? LIQUID.

what do you guys think?
i feel like KDE is now very beautiful, but it's time to make it look impressive right out of the RPM.

"KDE Girl"

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by TomServo 46 comments

..i really don't get what's pissing you off. so what if someone wants a pic of a slutty little pseudo-anime girl as a splash? does it make all wonem look like slutty anime?
forgive me for saying this, but yours IS a rather stupid post.

If you want, go ahead and make a splash of a naked man and post it here for all women to download, if it makes you happy...

my point is, just because someone made a splash of a woman showing her butt it doesn't mean the maker thinks all women are walking butts.

and if a lot of ppl like it and download it, then i'm sorry but that's life. the internet is 70% about sex, like it or not.

oh and for the record, i do not like 'sexy' themes and i don't use this splash.
