Adjustable Clock

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 354 comments

I'm using an adjustable clock in a vertical panel. Unfortunately, whenever I try to add a horizontal line (<hr>), the clock "flashes" wildly (resizes several times a second).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a vertical panel.
2. Add an adjustable clock to the panel.
3. Modify the settings of the clock: add an <hr> anywhere in the source code.
4. Click "Ok".
5. Watch the show.

I have recompiled the package and uploaded it to my PPA:

As noted by Janet above, the package provided with Ubuntu Lucid always seems to crash when one tries to change the settings of the clock, see this bug report:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/plasma-widget-adjustableclock/+bug/546781

Also, I currently try to submit a stack trace.

There is already ksshaskpass (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=50971). Does this app have anything that ksshaskpass doesn't? - Mar 13 2010

Intellibar formerly KWin [idea]

I like the idea, but I see one problem: usually, as the name says, the title bar contains a title. Writing the title vertically makes it hard to read. You easily avoided this problem by not having a title in the title bar...

In general, it would be nice if one could reduce the number of horizontal window and desktop elements and to put them vertically (for example the menu bar or the bottom panel).

Just think of the standard KDE desktop with firefox: There there is KDEs's window title bar at the top and the panel containing the task manager and the start menu at the bottom. Firefox has the the menu bar, the navigation bar, the bookmark bar, and the tab bar at the top. At the bottom, you'll find the status bar. If you use certain add-ons, they will add another horizontal bar.

If you use a wide screen, this will result in a region of about 1600x200 pixels where the actual web page is rendered. Not to forget that quite a number of web pages (including this one) feature horizontal navigation menus and a horizontal logo line. At least you can usually scroll these.

Unfortunately, the problem is always the same: text can not easily be rendered vertically.

Frankly, I always wonder whether it wouldn't be better to have high screen rather than a wide screen.

Kubuntu Logo Mock-Up

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by fatbuttlarry 7 comments

I do see the point in creating a new logo: the current kubuntu logo is a bit "overloaded" for my opinion. In particular when you render it pretty small, the gears just look fiddly.

Your proposals look promising to me. As soon as you have a single image containing all variants, I will gladly comment on the different variants in particular.
