The menu is not on the "Top" but beside the kbfx button.

Could you please make it above instead of beside the button. - Jun 04 2005

mng will make the Button astonishing! please support mng+png+xpm+jpg, etc.

mng will add animation to the button, a dynamic glow effect, a fade effect, a rotating K animation beside the text will also look good. a button changing it's color, etc.

the FX part in kbfx is Effects! so, please, please, please add 'mng' support. - Jun 04 2005

though it is good, but it is extra code for you to do that.

instead of having to code 'Glow' we can create Glow button using gimp on 'MouseOver' event.

precious code is saved if we use 'QPixmap(buttonGlow.png)' instead of coding.

Please consider removing the Glow code, because it will be extra burden on you.

also the Glow button causes the whole button area to GLOW which is not desirable in many buttons. if you need to have these things changed, then Glow like code will add upto to too much strain, example:

1. Bold/italic/underline Text
2. Font change
3. shape change of button,
4. Color Change

this will tax you too much. So, I humbly suggest that using Pixmap will be good for kbfx. Let the artists do the work for KBFX. - Jun 04 2005

Try this:

1. Right-Click on kicker->Add to Panel->Applet->kbfx

2. copy the xp.png to $KDEDIR/share/icons/default.kde/22x22/actions

ok? - Jun 04 2005

could you please implement 4 icons for the kbfx applet. This will make the kbfx applet most attractive and exciting. These are the four states which requires different icons.

1. On hover (when you put your mouse pointer above the button). highlight like feature (but using image here)

2. On click (when you click the button)

3. depressed (when you leave the button after clicking)

4. normal (default icons, when it is not click or hovered upon)

this will make the button look sooooo beautiful. please try it. - Jun 03 2005

make install works nicely, perhaps the xp.png is copied properly!

thanks, i will create some themes for kbfx! but please have a separate folder for each theme for kbfx like

for kopete:
/usr/share/emoticons

for kbfx:
KDEDIR=/usr

$KDEDIR/share/apps/kicker/kbfx/themes/default
$KDEDIR/share/apps/kicker/kbfx/inspire

etc. for each theme there must a separate folder where icons and a MENU xml file which will define the layout of the Custom KMENU for our kbfx applet.

just my 2 cents ;) - Jun 02 2005

i wonder why those tools require automake 1.6, I also had to install automake 1.6 from slackware 8.x on my slackware 10.1 thought it has 1.9.

anyways, download src rpm
http://www.google.com/search?q=automake+1.6+source+rpm&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8


if it works then try slackware automake 1.6
http://mirror.etf.bg.ac.yu/linuxpackages/Slackware-8.1/pcxz/other/automake-1.6.3-i686-1.tgz

installation of slackware tgz:

run "tar -zxvf automake-1.6.3-i686-1.tgz -C /"

run "ldconfig"

now try ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 :) - Jun 02 2005

run "make -f Makefile.cvs"
run "./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3"

i guess you are getting /use/share because of the 'configure' file created on Fedora Core 3 using 'make -f Makefile.cvs'. - Jun 02 2005

thanks for your kind reply, i can see kbfx applet now. i copied the themes/*.png to $KDEDIR/share/icons/default.kde/22x22/actions

Requests:

1. Choose icons from $KDEDIR/share/apps/kicker/applets/kbfx/themes folder

2. Custom KMENU for this cute applet, allow inserting other kicker extensions like Bookmars, Recent Documents (custom) using the .desktop thing. Please use custom XML file for that, importing from KMENU's xml and user defined things.

3. kmenu must pop-up above the KPanel/kbfx button not overlapping the applet or panel. just like pressing ALT+F1

4. remove 'k' logo on the applet, instead we can use IMAGES (pictures) with IMAGE+Text (both text and image as a picture).

5. Keyboard shortcuts, allow keyboard shortcut for the menu to appear like Win key, or something easy to press like ctrl+f1 or Win (start key)+F1.

6. The Custom menu should allow use of custom colors, fonts, keyboard shortcuts, icons etc.

Thank you this really looks GREAT!!! I hope you can make it the best K-Button for KDE :) - Jun 02 2005

KDE Improvement 3.4 (Your opinion plz)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by nookie 36 comments

Did you know that Black Text is better visible in Yellow Background! That's why those Road Sign, School Buses etc are Yellow and Black.

It's about visibility. Yellow as KDE does is good.

The things I don't like in your suggestions:

1. Uses Dark Blue color (text not readable)
2. Looks more like a BUTTON
3. Too much rounded - Jun 02 2005

disable (flash) plugins when images are disabled

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by zvonSully 14 comments

You can disable the flash in a web page by removing the flash plugin from konqueror Settings->Plugings->flash, just delete that.

And whenever you need to work with flash you can 'scan for plugin', and lo, you get flash back.

I hope that was easy on konqueror developer's part, checking for .swf in a page and disabling/removing the plugin! - May 19 2005

KMess, Live/MSN Messenger for Linux

Chat & Messenging by rubenvd 46 comments

There are many Multiprotocol clients like Gaim, Kopete, Ayttm, etc., available for GNU/Linux, Then why would anybody want to use KMess?

What's better in KMess compared to Gaim/Kopete? Apparently nothing!

If you Love KMess and want it to be acceptable to all Linux MSN users, then please support VOICE Chat and Webcam Support (which is about to be implemented in Kopete).

I'm not discouraging, but asking you to make it a real USEFUL MSN application. And you can do that cause you are having only 1 protocol instaed of many! which makes your work easier.

Thanks anyways. - May 10 2005

There is a very minor glitch:

Here are the steps to make the sources compile on other GNU/Linux systems, as this source was created by the author on SuSE Linux.

Steps to make the sources work:

1. tar -zxvf KHdRecord.tar.gz
2. cd khdrecord
3. kwrite makefile
4. replace all '/opt/kde3' with '$(KDEDIR)' (without quotes) there will be 2 replacements.
5. save the makefile

6. make
7. ./KHdRecord (after compilation)

Have fun! - May 08 2005
