It would be great to have MS Office Communicator support in Kmess. No other KDE IM client provides this yet.

It has been around as part of libpurple library from Pidgin for quite sometime.

rekonq Web Browser

Browser by adjam 290 comments

Thanks, I thought so too. KDE proxy module has been ignore since 4.0, i believe. This is making both Konqueror and rekonq unattractive for me ... i use KDE as my primary desktop at work and nothing really works without proxy! - Aug 23 2010
rekonq Web Browser

Browser by adjam 290 comments

If there is one thing rekonq (and KDE4 in general) need to give love to is proxy settings.

As of now, only manual proxy settings are reliable (in KDE.) Automatic proxy URL does not work.

For example, even with the latest rekonq, using a proxy, the thumbnails on the new tab do not update. The progress circle goes on turning in all of them. Without proxy, it works fine.

That's great. However, blank city is no better than an incorrect default (except in Johannesburg, at the moment)

I don't know plasma internals, but when using Plasma data engines, isn't it possible to pick the city based on the timezone and location set in the system during installation? - Oct 03 2009

Hi,

It would be great if all widgets could have rounded corners, including window decorations.

STasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by mbaszczewski 445 comments

The good:
Works perfectly in 4.2.x.

The not-so-good:
Does not work well with 4.3SVN (Qt4.5). When added to the panel, it does not take up maximum space available (which it does in 4.2.x.) Due to this, my system tray and the clock etc spread out and look ugly. What's more, as I open/close windows, the clock and system tray shrink which looks ugly.

Any reason why it should behave well until 4.2 and not beyond?

FYI, I am compiling it on openSUSE running 4.3SVN with Qt4.5 - Mar 22 2009
STasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by mbaszczewski 445 comments

I tried the first version and it was quite buggy and erratic with expansion of tasks. Also, it would take up very small space on the panel and my system tray looked huge!

Anyway, this version is good enough for me to replace KDE standard taskbar altogether.

Keep it up. This is a formidable alternative as a task manager. - Mar 10 2009

STasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by mbaszczewski 445 comments

Its so good that I've already replaced my standard task bar with Staks!

I am running KDE 4.3 (from openSUSE unstable repo's) and it works like a charm.

With a few improvements like Staks taking as much space as possible on the panel (like the standard taskbar), it will be a must-have app. Right now, my systray looks too big and so does the clock on the panel -- because Staks takes up too little space :-)

Nevertheless, a very fine effort indeed. The animation with colour with "Expand Tasks" option is very cool!!

Tasty Menu

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mart 499 comments

Hi,
Tasty menu is really "tasty" bit I'm disappointed each time I have to knock it off Kicker due to high memory usage. Over a period of time, my desktop becomes close to unresponsive.

The moment I remove the applet from kicker, desktop returns to normal.

Is this a general complain or am I the only one getting this behaviour.

Btw, I always compile it from source since there is no package for PCLinuxOS, my distro of choice. - May 03 2007

I get a 'Cannot open config file' or something when loading this theme in Appearance and Themes -> Splash Screen page of KDE Control Centre.

What could be wrong? - Apr 04 2007
Tasty Menu

Definitely more usable than both KBFX and kickoff.

Only the scrolling in the last pane is buggy. I can never seem to scroll to the last application in the 3rd pane -- it scrolls back up after a moment or two. Is this a known issue?

Otherwise, its already the default menu on my desktop. - Feb 21 2007

I understand that the original poster is getting the error while using .avi files -- please correct me, if not so.

However, I get the same error even when I'm using only mpeg files to start with. I followed these steps:

1. Add Media
2. Choose Template
3. Select Output -> DVD Author Project
4. DVD Directory
This is where I get a stream of errors like: Skipping sector, waiting for first VOBU...

All required/optional libraries were found on compilation. I am using PCLinuxoS.

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by nunogomez 11 comments

Rather than pushing it up to occupy 85% of the desktop, how about pushing it up a comfortable height, say 1/10th of the screen and showing thumbnails of running apps with a slider or left/right arrows at each edge to see thumbnails that are not visible in the screen.

IMO, a similar concept can be used to switch desktops as well. A slider at that drops down from the top of the screen and then one can choose the desktop required (using its thumbnail) or slide left/right to show other desktops.

Maybe i'll try and post gui mockups for the ideas above ...

Cheers. - Oct 26 2005
