Sounds like a great idea.

The problem I can see coming from this ( and here you can tell I know nothing about circuit simulation techniques ) is that different areas of circuit simulation will need vastly different samplerates / simulation accuracies. Tiny / high frequency / parasitic signals which might have a massive effect in one simulator might get lost when piped thru another. And, of course it wouldn't be able to run in realtime, so it would need to have some kind of shared control over virtual time. Interesting though. - Jan 11 2007

It's very beautiful, but consistency is more important than beauty.

If every kde app made itself individual and beautiful, kde would become a crazy mishmash of metaphors, artistic styles and behaviour. A bit like the unix desktop was in 1999. - Nov 26 2006

Audio Apps by rsijrier 21 comments

I wish audio apps didn't feel obliged to use custom widgets. I don't want to relearn how different looking buttons behave when I go into a different application. - Jul 05 2006
Focus through transparent windows

This would be an interesting idea for KDE 4.

I think to make it clear what the window manager was going to do, when you mouseovered a window title bar in the background, it should become highlighted (or momentarily brought to the front) so that the behaviour isn't completely unexpected if you're not actually trying to do that.

It would be very annoying to be clicking in a window to bring it to the front, not realising that behind where you clicked there was a titlebar to another window that you didn't care about, and having the other window appear instead. - Jul 28 2005

I didn't really mean either of these to do with your app. Your app looks very useful for what it is - a simple standalone piece of software.

It's just this sparked a little idea in my head. - Apr 26 2005

Here's an idea.

This sort of functionality as a plugin to kontact.

So that in korganiser you could have an appointment - but rather than having a reminder, you could set it to 'record channel x'.

I say this because it occurs to me that a lot of your scheduling (& recurrence etc.) code is duplicated in korganiser.

And then people would be able to have one view of what their 'schedule' is. A program set to record is just another entry in their calendar.

This would probably only behave nicely once kde is gstreamer-ised and has a nice multimedia backend. - Apr 26 2005

If I'm not mistaken, that's taken at a fortress near cork. - Apr 15 2005

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by scrondle 4 comments

I don't think it's religious people making these comments, just a lot of people find things like that tasteless.

What's more it makes the kde community look like a bunch of hormonal fourteen year olds. - Apr 03 2005

The problem is that these are AVIs that have just been renamed to .mpeg - they have mpeg4 streams inside, but mpeg4 was never supposed to go in .mpeg wrappers. That's solely for mpeg and mpeg2. Not that this is actually an .mpeg wrapper, it's an avi. - Mar 18 2005

Indeed. You've already got them running kde, you can stop advertising. - Feb 19 2005

Not all users always have a group. These users would be invisible/unselectable with your screen.

There should be a way of just typing the username in. Having to click around can be very annoying when you have a lot of users.

The standard unix way of denoting users is user:group rather than user/group.

Should there be a way of greying things out if the user isn't in wheel?

Other than that, interesting. - Feb 10 2005

Y'know i think the whole thing would be better with just the hat.

It doesn't quite look right when it's on the smiley face. Wrong perspective. What's more it would be far more recognisable at lower resolutions. - Jan 30 2005
themable SVG icons

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by H00K 12 comments

I think they ideally wanted to do dynamic changing of colours with css etc but were limited by what the svg engines were capable of. Hence they had to go with the script.

I only say to contact them because you have many of the same ideas and they know all the pitfalls you'll run into. - Nov 18 2004

...actually already been thought of. It was being worked on by the guys behind the lila iconset. It would be a good idea to contact them. Since then, the project has rather taken a backseat because of more pressing tasks. - Nov 14 2004
