Is it my imagination, or is there no way to add new bookmarks in this plugin yet? - Oct 13 2005

I've seen other people allow multiple downloads from the same page...

Geez, looking at my Akregator, I thought that a serious amount of KDE-Look stuff had been added. But it was just the attack of the clones. ;-) - Jan 30 2005

Now all it needs is to be a K instead of an X. :-) - Jan 29 2005

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by roachofdiscord 35 comments

Not wanting to be overly critical, but... make it look nice first. At first glance, this looks _exactly_ like that "XP Start Menu" which is the first thing Windows XP users turn off after they install the OS. - Jan 22 2005
Plastik theme for k700i cellphone

Various Stuff by metty 10 comments

The K700i has Bluetooth, doesn't it? That's how I get all the files to/from my much older T610... it has a full FTP server built-in, and I would assume the newer phones would be the same. - Nov 18 2004

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by dralgebra 541 comments

Now that Xorg 6.8 has support for true translucency via the Composite extension, I wonder how hard it would be to add support to this window theme.

That would make this theme the only one out there using it... or would this require kwin to support the feature itself? :-) - Oct 29 2004
Improving KDE

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

Here's the clean way to do it:

1. mkdir /usr/local/portage

2. Add this line to /etc/make.conf:


3. Extract the .tar.gz inside /usr/local/portage. This should create /usr/local/portage/kde-base and /usr/local/portage/x11-libs directories.

4. emerge -pv qt kdelibs kdebase kdeartwork.

5. You should see [1] next to each of the lines in the output. If this is the case, and nothing is blocked, remove the "-pv" and do it for real.

6. Enjoy the new graphics. :-)

It's important to use an overlay for stuff like this, as... if you put it in /usr/portage, it will be overwritten the next time you sync. - Oct 17 2004
KWin drop shadow patches for kde3.3

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by zuxez 71 comments

Naturally. And my only point was that the window manager doesn't need to know anything about translucency, in order for other applications to use it. - Sep 08 2004
KWin drop shadow patches for kde3.3

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by zuxez 71 comments

On the other hand, it doesn't actually need to. You can use a separate program to draw the drop shadows, such as xcompmgr is able to do. The only real advantage of getting the support directly into kwin is it might make it easier to toggle on and off. - Sep 08 2004

Tested and confirmed to work. I had to modify it a bit to make it work on 3.3.0_rc2 but it still works. :-) - Aug 13 2004

Dolphin Service Menus by prjanique 305 comments

Whoops, I forgot to answer the other half of the stuff.

I think the underlying thing is this:

Most ebuilds seem to follow this pattern:
(1) ./configure
(2) make
(3) copy files into /var/tmp/portage/... manually

That is, ebuilds often don't trust the install script which ships with the product. That's why multiple files are easier.

If I have an easy way to do it this way we actually don't even need the directory prefix since it can be done in the ebuild, and I'm fine to do that. Maybe if the install script actually installed all the resulting files in the current directory? I'm not certain which way is best. - Jun 01 2004

Dolphin Service Menus by prjanique 305 comments

KdeSudo is basically exactly like KdeSu, except it uses sudo as the backend instead of su. So you get prompted for your own password instead of the root password, but the important thing is you still get prompted for a password. Editing sudoers to make the executable work without a password might not be a good idea because if some hostile user sits down at my computer they have an instant way to run root code like that.

KdeSudo isn't the default in Gentoo or anything, I just use it in preference to KdeSu since it's more user-friendly. I can have my root password set to some ungodly length, and never, ever use it. - Jun 01 2004

Dolphin Service Menus by prjanique 305 comments

This is a _very_ nice example of what can be done with a few KDE menu hooks and a shell script.

I have only two suggestions...

1. Support KdeSudo as a means of getting root access (I managed to get it working by hacking the script to change 'kdesu' to 'kdesudo'.)

2. Try to ship with multiple files, for simpler installation. The install script is less than ideal because I can't even make it install to a given prefix. I need to be able to install to a prefix to make an ebuild out of this. One thing which can probably be done is for the main script to actually call a second script, where the second script is the one which runs as root. The first one just checks to see which type of SU is in use, and calls the second script using that method.

But otherwise, very nice. :-) - Jun 01 2004
Now Make GTK2 Apps look right in KDE.

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Visceral 8 comments

Here is another thing which might help:

That makes Gtk2 apps draw using the same theme as Qt. You still need to play with the settings to get the fonts to look the same, but once it's done everything looks right. If only they could do this for Gtk1, we could have a fully consistent, skinnable desktop... at least for everything made with Gtk or Qt. :-) - Mar 31 2004
KWin drop shadow patches

Is there an official site for this, or somewhere else I can track it for updates? This thing rocks. :-) - Feb 19 2004
