Start Activity

Dolphin Service Menus by oliverthered 2 comments

Adds a service menu against directories 'Start Activity' that starts an activity associated with that directory.
If one doesn't exist it creates one in ~/.kactivities

the activity name is the directory root name.

so for instance if I have ~/Projects/Clients/FooBar I could start and activity there.

or ~/Videos I could start one there...

etc....


This is just a proof of concept (files are only a couple of lines long... read readme)

kio_clipboard

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Linuster 15 comments

Hi,
I haven't downloaded this re-incarnation of the original 3.x version I wrote many years ago before going off to the DirectX 9 3D for Wine and then having some health issues. (well medication issues!)

anyhow,

The two things I'll add to this extension are, the ability to drop a file into clipboard:/ and have it copied to the clipboard contents and as someone mentioned in a prior post, integration with kliper (though I'm not sure how easy that's going to be, it may be an idea to abstract out the history into kio_clipboard and then integrate kio_clipboard into kliper instead of the other way around.

I suppose then the ability to archive off large portions of the clipboard, or move them or delete entries or add multiple entries (effectively creating a history by dropping more than one file onto it)

Now to find out if my other extensions / modifications made it into 4.x or not! - Sep 01 2010

Improved Preview Operation

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by oliverthered 26 comments

soya's putting one together, well as soon as (I've got to the bottom of all the bugs).


To test with KDE I have done the following:

installed KDE 3.4.1-r1 as usual,
then
emerge kde-libs
and CTRL+c after ./configure has run
do the same with kde-base

then apply the patch to kde libs and kde base in /var/tmp/portage/kde-libs-4.3.1-r1 and /var/tmp/portage/kde-base-4.3.1-r1

then

make install kio in kde-libs
make install kcontrol in kde-base
make install libkonq in kde-base

There was a problem with a missing header (I forgot to note which one), just cd into the directory and
make nameofmissingheader.h
then start
make install .. again. - Jun 20 2005

This first problem is 'caused' by an update to the QT libraies (or maybe gcc). the compiler isn't picking up qstring = "this is a char *" properly,
but this is easly fixed.

either use a cast to (char char *)
or string = new QString("this is a char *")

What method are you using to generate the images?

Is it not possible to have a 4d object and then transform the functions be a view vector to create a 3d projection.

Other methods you can use are root solving (the povray source is a good place to start looking).

You find one point that has a non-imaganiry solution, then you start walking unit boxes, projecting a ray and seeing if you have a solution along each edge of the box.

this is mainly useful for polynomials but can be used for other objects such as blobs. - Jun 17 2005
Improved Preview Operation

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by oliverthered 26 comments

I like to have the thumbnails loaded at the beginning when I open the folder - all of them. Scrolling then is *much* faster


But that's not how konqueror works at the moment. With or without the patch the same amount of time is spent loading thumbnails (well unless you selected to load only those in view).

All this patch does is change the order in which the thumbnails are loaded, putting those icons in view at the top of the list.
If you change the view port say by scrolling then a moment afterwards the icons will be re-orded so that those in view are loaded first.

Because it takes a moment, the order will not be updated until you stop (or pause) you scrolling. - Jun 17 2005
PE thumbnail

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by oliverthered 20 comments

There should be a new entry on
view / preview
called Executables
you just need to make sure it's ticked and previews are turned on...

If it's not there you need to copy pethumbnail.desktop from src to

KDEROOT/share/services/

If you still having problems you need to make sure that kde has the mime type application/windows-executable associated with *.exe, *.dll and *.ocx files.

To check this use the menus to goto
settings / configure konqueror / File Associations.

Type exe in Find filename pattern, and
application -> windows-executable should be listed...

if it isn't then you need to copy
windows-executable.desktop
from src to

Let me know if your still having problems...

Filelight

System Software by MxCl 125 comments

Hi,
I've found FileLight quite useful but very slow. If you want to replace KDiskFree I would suggest that you performance and memory tune FileLight, here are some suggestions that could increase performance and reduce memory all are reasoned all are costed (if the cost isn't the reason). If you don't know how to implement or are unsure of any of the algorithms then drop me message. Some of my suggestions my already be partly implemented via the 'cache' mechanism, if so they do not appear to be working for me.


all notes are against 1.0beta_6.
'make install
Making install in src
make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/filelight-1.0_beta6/work/filelight-1.0-beta6/src'

Make tree nodes as light as possible, if states only apply to a few nodes remove the states from the node and keep a separate list. (vtables partly count here so make sure you using static and non-virtual functions etc.. as appropriate)

Reasoning: The more of the tree that fits in memory,cpu cache the better. and there's no point storing needless information in nodes. Locating the state is a n for the number of states, not n for the number of nodes. Memory overhead is per state + 1 not per-node.
(Does Chain really need to be a double linked list? for every directory?)


Start by using a queue system to the next node, then a stack system when you get a number of nodes deep, This way you can generate the chart as you traverse the directory tree.

Reasoning: a queue will cause all directories in the current directory to be scanned next, a stack will causes the first then second descendants to be scanned, since the user wants to know about the 'current' node, all children of the current node should be scanned before any descendants. Using a queue will probably increase memory usage when compared to a stack.
(cost slight memory overhead + instant visual display vs reduced memory overhead, delayed visual display)

Make a simple version with no directory traversal for those people who just want a df, without hammering their server.

Reasoning: I just want a df, I don't want to wait ten minutes while my 1tb of data gets scanned turning my server into a lemon.
(cost a few inodes almost instant vs every inode on my fileing system)


When you traverse the nodes stack style consider aggregating the results.

Reasoning: unless a file some way down the file hierarchy is especially large there is no point in showing it so there is no point in storing a node for that file, just aggregate with the parent directory. (cost fixed memory vs n memory)


Use a weighted balanced tree to decide when to aggregate. (or calculations based on a weighted balanced tree).

Reasoning: this enables you to aggregate in an intelligent manner based on filesize, tree depth, tree width etc....
(cost is balanced tree with aggregation (=log2n ~= logn) as apposed to no aggregation n)

Deletes should run off of cache, or don't update the tree for a delete.

Reasoning: I'm deleting files, not updating the tree, let me delete in piece. A lazy update could run in the background, so long as it doesn't affect the user deleting. (cost is 1 delete vs 1 delete + n inode operations)



Only parse the aggregate node and it's children when a user "cd's" to the aggregate node or it's parent, don't recalculate the whole tree.

Reasoning: The user is obviously interested in the current node, even if the other nodes may be a few meg bigger/smaller don't bother updating unless the user asks. (maybe show an out-of-date Icon or something) (cost is 0, except an icon, vs n inode operations)

Don't delete parent nodes (from the internal tree) until you hit a memory limit, that way hitting back is a as near zero time operation (unless you've hit the memory limit, in which case sections of the tree will need reparsing).

Reasoning: The use may want to hit the back button (it is the most commonly used button apparently!), so don't clean out cache that could be used to generate an almost instant back. (cost is 1 memory look-up, and a fixed memory cost, vs n inode operations)

Make tree nodes as light as possible, if states only apply to a few nodes remove the states from the node and keep a separate list.

Reasoning, locating the state is a n for the number of states, not n for the number of nodes.
Memory overhead is per state + 1 not per-node.

Only update the counter at the bottom right had side of the screen for every... (suggestion: directory entered or exited).

Reasoning: Writing text is surprisingly CPU intensive, the use can also read a value that changes 10times a second, but can't read one that changed 100times a second.(Cost, Moderately reduced CPU overhead, improved clarity reduced granularity vs improved granularity, greater CPU overhead, reduced clarity).


Two column view doesn't fit on my screen,the number of columns must be dynamic or one e.g. two lots of ...'
/net/bigdisk/films on /var/data/fake_windows/MySharedFolder/movies type none (rw,bind)' side by side won't fit 1280x1024.


Columns should be left (or right for some languages) aligned not centred.
Reason: I have to allign the columns in my head if they are centred, but not if they are left/right aligned. headings centred, lists aligned.

you MUST use getmntent to read the fstab if you want to replace KDiskFree, see 'man fstab' or http://www.rt.com/man/getmntent.3.html for more info.
Reason: fstab says, 'The proper way to read records from fstab is to use the routines getmntent(3)',
what if fstab is in digieridoo format?

I hope you implement some of my recommendations, they should help make your application business class.
Reason: What's good for the goose is good for the gander, why not make the best possibly application. - Feb 26 2005

what you want and what you think you want are to different things.

1: A user will always demand that they need what they already have, change is a hard thing for them.

2: When you get use to the change you'll probably not want to go back to the old way, because it's another change.

Even you would benefit from some files being hidden e.g. KDE hides .* file by default, turn them on and you get lots of noise, turn them off and you can still access them if you know where to look. - Feb 19 2005

Konqueror search/filter field idea

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by WedDa 30 comments

What is a location bar for, or what is a search bar for.

The first is to request a location, and the other is to request a search for a location.

Granted /etc/passwords shouldn't kick off google,
but www.kdeapps.org or trout fishing should.

I would say that the search bar is unintuitive clutter, it's just that you've got a pre-programmed method of using the location bar, so it seems hard for you to think of it as a 'request' bar. I think you would be more 'productive' if the location bar performed searched from day one. - Dec 14 2004

1:/ a defacto standard doesn't an intuitive interface make.

e.g.
The Querty isn't exactly the easiest keyboard to use, but it's the 'defacto standard' so that's what you get.

Windows is the 'defacto standard' OS and IE is the 'defacto standard' browser, it doesn't make them good, or even standards complient.


2:/
It's clutter, basicly why have to input boxes when you only need one?

I don't like thinks in the top right hand side of my view, I find them distracting, since I'm usually looking to the left of the page and there just out of my field of view. It's a bit like a TV in a pub, flickering away.

Being in the top right, draws my attention away from the work I am doing, and I also have to 'think' about it. e.g. I ocassionally type a search into the location bar, only to have to copy it into the google bar.

I do like it's functionality, well I would if is supported locate:// etc...,

I woudln't get ridd so much as make it redundant, I suppose you can keep it their if you want to, or have the option of removing it but still having intergraed search in kde.

3:/
It would be impossible to the computer to guess exactly what you are thinking ,but it could have a good go.
But without requireing much intelegence from the computer you could bind a seperate shortcut for search as apposed to open, you could get a prompt if there's uncertainty, or you could rediret you focus to the top right of the window and pick a search method. - Dec 10 2004

Search bar improvement

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by oliverthered 16 comments

You don't need to find the search bar, evey request that I ever type into the location bar is a request to locate(search/find) something.

A miss-typed omain name should try to locate that domain name in google, a miss-typed file name should attempt to find the file, and a non-descript location would be a request to search for whatever you've typed in context.

Anyhow, some people seem to like the idea, and others don't so I'll look at doing an implementation where you can optionally hide the search bar.

I've also got 15-20 people of various computer skill (from none to product testes) who I can buy a pint and get them to do some usability testing, and about 4-5 people who would do long term usability testing. e.g. force them selfs to use a feature for a couple of weeks and see if it is easier touse once your used to it. - Nov 27 2004

I don't know of another app that uses the Directory selection dialogue in KDE which is the dialogue that filelight is using, this makes is seem a bit odd.


And I would expect the screen layout to be the same as Konqueror.
i.e.
the label Location:before the location input.
The back and forward buttons tool-bar the location input tool-bar.

Back, forwards and relaod are at the top, and I never use them. If they were hidden I would only have 10 options to choose from.

I never use set-encoding, stop-animations or copy to either.

So that leaves 7, almost half the original number of entries.

The same thing goes for most of the menus, i've never used window/move-tab left so I should be shown the option.

Hiding things I don't use improves my perfomnace, customizes the UI to my needs automaticaly and makes it less probably that I will click on something that I don't want. - Nov 25 2004
