Application bundles (OSX style)

Unfortunately, this is not an area that KDE is responsible for. KDE is a desktop environment. It's main concern is the desktop software and libraries. It doesn't make packages either and distributes source code only of KDE software. KDE leaves it up to the distribution or operating system to take care of resolving and installing the dependencies required to compile, install, or run KDE. As such, it is something for distributions to chew on. KDE itself is not a complete OS. That said, there are s...

RE: Uniform Behavior from Konqueror

Quite a lot of points, some of which don't have anything to do with Konqueror. But anyway: Quoted Originally posted by jetman For example, I've customized my KDE config so that I have two extra tabs on the Konqueror Navigation pane, to track the 'smb:/' (LAN) and 'system:/media' (Media) nodes. They work well, but the System Menu applet for Kicker doesn't know anything about these tabs. Therefore, I can't simply choose one of these custom nodes from the System Menu applet and jump to the area/nod...

Missing Control Center

Ok that's exactly what I was referring to. Kubuntu uses System Settings by default instead of KControl, but KControl is still installed.

Missing Control Center

How did you install KDE in Ubuntu? If you installed it through the kubuntu-desktop package, you won't be able to see KControl in the K Menu, because System Settings is the default control center for Kubuntu (and for KDE 4 too).

Better names for Applications

No. He's hinting that: 1. There is a feature in KDE that makes the K Menu show the app description, something like: SpeedCrunch - Calculator or (Calculator) SpeedCrunch and 2. That different distros display their menus differently. For example, in Kubuntu, the description is shown beside the name of the app. A vanilla (pure, unmodified) KDE system does the same. What you are suggesting is a bit difficult to implement, and comparing the situation to Windows XP is not proper. This is why: 1. Micro...

RE: Text Editor suggestions

Quoted Originally posted by user1001 Suggestion of setting the default setting to not having the current selected line of different background color (light blue) - it's harder for the eye to grasp. As far as I know, the default color for the current line was setup that way for accessibility and usability reasons, much like the alternating background color in lists. I guess that you would probably need to have usability or accessibility studies or proof to support your suggestion. Quoted Also, w...

package info for software updates

You'd have better luck posting this in the Fedora forums. KDE does not create or distribute packages. They only create the source code, and then distributions get those and package them for their users. So the packaging system, their contents, and their descriptions is pretty much a distribution-specific matter.

Group Similar Tasks "Always" and konsole

Same behavior here in Kubuntu, although I can't recall that they were grouped together before anyway. Workaround? Use tabs in Konsole instead of opening new Konsole windows. Might be easier. Or better yet, use Yakuake.

No window manager notification sounds with beryl

Yes it is not possible to use the built-in window manager notifications because those belong to KWin, the KDE Window Manager. You can't use 2 window managers at the same time, so when you use Beryl, you lose KWin, along with any feature related to KWin, like notifications. The only possible "solution" is to use Beryl's sound notifications if it has any and use the KDE sounds for those (you will have to search which ones are which).

A new feature for KDE SYSTEM GUARD

Source code 1 kdesu ksysguard Launches ksysguard with root privs. I think what you're asking for will be a feature in KSysGuard for KDE 4. If you try to kill a process owned by root, you will be prompted for a password. I'm really not sure though.

License for KDE Icons?

The default KDE icon theme is Crystal SVG. According to…0257614ddd98ed, it's license is LGPL. (It's successor, the Crystal Project, is similarly LGPL: However, the KDE logo itself is trademarked, so that's an entirely different matter if it's being used elsewhere for some other puprose other than identifying KDE.

MousWheelUp=Next Desktop...

Right-click on the desktop, select Configure Desktop, go to Multiple Desktops, then check the "Mouse wheel over desktop background switches desktop" option. Or you could also mouse wheel over the desktop pager/previewer on the panel for the same effect.

Replacing X11 with Qt embedded

If you read further down the page, it gives instructions on the ./configure line to use, which mentions --with-qtopia. So I'm guessing that's how you compile it. I guess it would be better to send an e-mail to the developer involved for more information. (I wish I could install even a semblance of anything Linux, Qt, or KDE on my old HTC Tanager/Qtek 7070...)

K menu editting

Unfortunately, that isn't possible. You can have as many K Menus, but they will all use the same configuration/setup. As an alternative for launching favorite apps quickly, you can use the Quick Launcher panel applet. Or try something like Tasty Menu, which has a section for favorites. Or you could try Katapult, a launcher (app, bookmark, document, etc) in the style of Quicksilver for Mac OS X. Tasty Menu:…19b2dbd6c0118e1 Katapult:
