Description:

I've merged the following two KonquiSidebars into one,
by taking each one's advantage with slightly modified menus (eg. 'Start Here').
- axeljaeger's (original)
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=7999
- scream's (scrolling up/down buttons)
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=8014

All credits for this KonquiSidebar go to axeljaeger and scream!

--
This is not a forked version of the KonquiSidebar,
but just an easy to install/uninstall service for indolents like me. :)

To install, UNTAR IT AND RUN $ ./install, THAT'S ALL!
NO MORE CONFIGURATION IS NEEDED.

Now, run konqueror(webbrowsing mode) and then
you will see KonquiSidebar'ed konqueror as screenshots.

--
You can modify links in the KonquiSidebar
to your taste at ~/.sidebar/sidebar.html.

(* NOTE
The vfolder:/ protocol only works on RedHat,
so, you might replace these vfolder:/ links to
your distribution's menu directories, such as
/usr/share/applnk-mdk or something else. *)


Have fun with the KonquiSidebar!

It uses crystal by default!
While I'm a devoted crystal fan I think many users would like it to use the icons they have KDE set up with. This shouldn't be too hard to do.

I'll post a screen in a few here.

Thanks and I could use some input on what the default apps should be.

My version will add a My Linux icon to the desktop and is a link to my control profile (Modified sidebar konq. profile)
Instead of the right window being a webpage I will have a KDE Control window with easy access to common used apps for the desktop, Like colors, window dec, background, etc....

Look for a post today and let me know your opinion.

Thanks,
FTZ

Is there any reason I cant make my own sidbar based on this version?
I think this is a very cool idea and would like to make my own version based off this.

Thanks,

comments:

1. It would be nice if icon sizes could be variables. (Right now there seem to be 3 categories - arrow-size, title icons, and the sub-entries)

2. Is there any way to set the initial state of a "box", i.e open or closed?

Good work, Thanks!

Are there any other changes to the sidebar or is it just the install script?

based on axeljaeger's sidebar, I adopted your sidebar's up/down buttons.
- changed user specific directories, like /home/scream,
to be independent links(relative path) for convenience' sake.
- added a ready made konqueror webbrowsing profile
to use with the install script for KonquiSidebar.

No new functionality added, just for indolent like me. :)

I edited most of the sidebar.html file in ~/.sidebar successfully. What is the vfolder for? I get "protocol not supported" when trying to use that to open Applications. Note: on the install, I had to cp all the 'make install' files to /usr/share/apps and /usr/lib/kde3/ b/c Mandrake doesn't have it setup to use /usr/local/kde/.
cheers,

btw, Mandrake 9.1

"I had to cp all the 'make install' files to /usr/share/apps and /usr/lib/kde3/ b/c Mandrake doesn't have it setup to use /usr/local/kde/."

Just run ./configure like this next time:
./configure --prefix=/usr

That will have it install in /usr instead of /usr/local :)

sorry but vfolder:/ is the RedHat specific protocol for easy accessibility to menus.
In Mandrake, for example, you can link the 'Applications' menu
to the '/usr/share/applnk-mdk/' directory. Thanks.
