Amarok 1.x Scripts by hankscorpio 2 comments

Sorry, but isn't this rather a job for cron or at, than for a music player?

Don't understand me wrong, perhaps your work is just the thing everyone in this world absolutely needs, and I'm just too stupid to understand it... I don't mean to stop you from contributing, its just that I think apps shouldn't always do everything possible, but concentrate on the things they're meant for... - Sep 07 2005

kdesu patch(mockup)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by jrch2k 18 comments

You should add possibility to choose the program to start as user.

So one could do alt+f2, kdesu (or whatever you want to call it), choose program and user and run it.. - Feb 10 2005

I like it. It may be destracting sometimes... but... hey.. it's great for showing off... ;-)

Idea: Re-designing 'Recent Files' / URBs

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by sgtpepper 18 comments

I like the sorting idea. I think it would realy make the "recent files" usable. At the moment I don't use it at all.

The search idea is not bad either. How about searching for the file I have opened 2 days ago in program XYZ?

URB sounds sweet, but could also be realy enerving. Imagine watching the first half of a movie and then wanting to watch it again with some friends.. where will it start?
And I don't think it's a good idea to clutter the .desktop files too much, cause it would make the whole thing slow.

But still, I realy hope to see some or most of these things in kde4 perhaps.. perhaps with a switch to just switch it off?

I think it's cool, if people try to start their own desktop env. Perhaps it will be the preferred one some day, cause it is soooo much better than others...

Control Centre idea

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

first thought (after looking at the first "screenshot":

"Whaaa.. looks ugly, why is ie "panels" there twice, HEEELP!!!" ;-)"

second thought was, okay, controlcenter could use a bit of makeup.. sure, but it is quite usable, when you first understand what is placed where and why.

So if we change it at all, we should keep a focus on usability!

I didn't know about the settings:/ yet, but I think that one is a good start.

Let's not just change somethink, because it's so [place whatever positive adjective you want here] to change something. ;-) - Feb 07 2004
BlueXFER service menu

Dolphin Service Menus by dirge 10 comments

this is damn cool!!

I just had one problem after installing:

I got

syntax error at bluexfer line 26, near "=;"
Execution of bluexfer aborted due to compilation errors.

but just placing a "0" between "=" and ";" solves this.. ;-)

Great work!! More of that pleeaaassseee! ;-) - Dec 02 2003
I'm not going to put up a name here. It's clear, the US has always been the "World Police". Especialy in North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, whatever... another fact is, that Iraqs power was build and helped by the US, as well as others, but don't start saying the US hadnt had anything to do with it. As was the fact in Afghanistan.
You Americans, you great patriots, super heros of the world. You sell weapons to those that you will fight later on. You even train them. CIA has trained Iraqi forces in the 1980s and I'm sure there's much more dirt under the carpet.

But why do we have to discuss such stuff on kde-look? I mean it's not kde-politics, nor kde-nation-i-hate, it's about look! Eyecandy as they call it.So go get lost with your patriotism, get lost with the anti-americanism and just post good eyecandy!

Btw, I'm from Germany, on of the old-Europe countries. And i've been laughing my ass of over this comment from, was it Mr. Rumsfeld? - Apr 15 2003
Blue Glass XCursors 3D

Cursors by ezteban 54 comments

well, i'm still trying to get my mouth shut again...
until now I've been using the TuxCursors.. funny, but sometimes annoying.

Your cursors are absolutely great! I realy like the arrow and hour-glass cursor.
Imho the hand-cursor and text-cursor need some work. Hand-Cursor should look a bit more like a human-hand perhaps.. and text-cursor could be bigger. I have problems seeing it when working in konsole.

but still, the very best cursors I have ever seen! - Mar 27 2003

Man, there's someone, who has an idea, that might be good (i don't know, i'm not a coder or kde-superhero). And all you do is flame him for putting it in the (perhaps) wrong place.

Thanks a lot - Mar 13 2003

Wallpaper Other by holme 23 comments

I dont think kde-look is as 100%pure kde-related as some people here might want it to be. There's tons of wallpapers, that don't have the big K on them here. And most of them are realy good. Some aren't, i think, but that's just my opinion.
Besides, I wonder why it's always people that have contributed NOTHING to KDE-look who have to flame those, who contribute. If you don't like it, don't take it, but don't flame those, who work for kde-look.
And just to give the flame back: Whitewolf, what does
have to do with KDE??

Think about it! It doesn't matter if it has a K on it or not, as long as it looks good. And that lies just in everybodys own opinion. - Feb 12 2003

fade all but top window: possible?

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by probono 13 comments


I mean, I often want to be able to read text from a window in the background to transfer it somewhere else. You know, sometimes "copy'n paste" just doesnt work. So this would be bad, cause "readability" would suffer.

just a thought... guess I would still like it...

Tom - Jan 13 2003
