Konqueror pathbar

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mart 29 comments

The pathbar's is useful but it hinders our ability to type a URL say /tmp which is very annoying.

I would like to see a merging of both good location bar (of kde) + pathbar (of gnome).

I see that on HOVERING on part of KDE's URL should get the PATHBAR button or a animated dropdown entry box which could allow "typing of url"

like: You are here:
file://tmp/testing/ABC

now you want to go to DEF folder

file://[/][tmp][ABC]

now hovering on the ABC should either:
1. popup a button where on RIGHT CLICK we could enter a URL or a dropdown list (like a menu)

2. an area like a tooltip exactly below the ABC to enter DEF...

so combining the features of both worlds will definitely work good :) - Jan 02 2006

XP or Vista start menu is more functional and useful and accessible without more mouse clicks.

KDE 4 will be using shadow differently. see the oxygen icons.

I like the shadow for the paper, looks very nice. - Dec 05 2005
K3b

Utilities by trueg 227 comments

k3b svn version does not detect my cdrw, but version 0.11.24 could detect the cdwriter.

k3bsetup shows the cdwriter in both 0.12svn and 0.11.24.

0.12svn will only burn to image. it is not asking to insert cd (because it is not able to detect cdwriter)

i'll check with today's svn k3b version to check it fixed or not. - Nov 02 2005
K3b

Utilities by trueg 227 comments

version 0.12 (also svn) can't burn a cd, whereas version 0.11.24 can burn cds properly.

I suspect something got broken in the latest version.

And thanks for a wonderful and useful application -> k3b!!! - Oct 31 2005

I know Open-source and free software works like this (too many application to one job).

But "KNemo" is already in KDE-Extragear/Network branch; which means it will be a part of KDE sooner or later.

I appreciate your efforts on KNetDockApp, but It would be commendable if you become KNemo devel too ;) for adding best features of KNetDockApp and other similar applications/applets.

I wish you extend knemo to fulfil your requirement, which in turn may help many LUsers ;). - Sep 30 2005

eject cdrom

Utilities by maarizwan 11 comments

not all GNU/Linux has HAL+DBUS+kernel 2.6, hence, one is stuck with cdrom. BTW, I know supermount very well. But because of the stubborn people who don't want supermount into kernel, this thing could help *normal* users to eject their cdrom, when in trouble. Sometimes, when we insert a *bad* cd, then the cdrom continuously try to seek the sectors (lights just blink continuously) neither we can eject the cd nor we could access it. Then this small "eject cdrom" works wonder. try a very crappy cdrom mouting and eject it... - Sep 24 2005

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by sirajr 613 comments

The XP like menu is IMO is very useful, and allows quick access. Microsoft must have put Millions of dollars for the usability study of their XP menu. I have used it and have seen that even new users who hate windows 98/2k love xp menu for its overall easier to access almost everything:

Shortcuts
Recent Apps
Recent Docs
System devices
Printers
Web Browser
etc.

Could you allow kbfx menu to be configured by users to be exactly similar to XP menu? That would definitely help ex-WindowsXP users.

I'm telling this to help windows-XP users' migration to GNU/Linux.

I know some 'negative' people would hate this idea because they don't want others to have the freedom to have anything according to their liking. - Jul 22 2005

Also The kbfx button you are having in the 3rd screenshot, why don't you make it default or at least provide with kbfx package.

That really look awesome.

And few important applications like "konqueror", "home", "kwrite", "konsole" etc. add those into default kbfx menu, so that it won't look *empty*.
