KBookOCR

Office Apps by b0noI 55 comments

I installed the Ubuntu package but it doesn't do anything when I select an input file and output text file. Do I need to install some third party OCR software as well? And if so, should be made a dependency? Which OCR software is it compatible with? - Dec 02 2010

Nice, but it doesn't seem to use a consistent size in the preview pane. I notice that pdf, txt, etc. previews are shown larger (typically) than openoffice documents. - Nov 15 2010

Plasma Themes by painkiller101 262 comments

In KDE 4.5.2 (Kubuntu 10.10) the "Leave" dialog (for logging out, etc.) is not very readable, especially on a light background. The dialog should be more opaque so that the text shows. - Oct 26 2010
MDic Dictionary

In KDE 4.5.2 (Kubuntu 10.10) when the mdic icon is hidden in the system tray the text that is supposed to be beside the mdic icon instead overlaps with the top item in the hidden list. - Oct 24 2010

Plasma Themes by bugsbane 11 comments

Really good but as it stands I'm not really feeling it. Of course, I wouldn't be typing this message if I didn't think it could turn into a nice theme. I almost like it, but the panel gradience isn't ideal. E.g. if you have a dark wallpaper then part of the clock becomes illegible. - Oct 20 2010

Your theme doesn't work properly in Kubuntu 10.10 (KDE 4.5.2) for some reason. It gets cut off at the top of the panel and there are other artifacts. - Oct 11 2010

Battery NG

Plasma 4 Extensions by Kame2 9 comments

I'm having trouble compiling this mostly (or entirely!) because I don't know what I'm doing. I've run a cmake on the extracted source folder which created a CMakeFiles folder. Am I on the right track?

If anyone could offer up some help to this Kubuntu user, I'd be very grateful. - Jul 31 2010

What exactly does this program do? Does it just take still shots from the webcam, or can one record video as well? The description lacks any information and the screenshots suggest that video recordings cannot be made. - Jul 30 2010

Nice. On a side, I would change the name of the plasmoid since it's not clear what 'Battery NG' means. I found your plasmoid completely by accident. - Jul 27 2010

kONE

Kopete Styles by kanutron 85 comments

This is the best theme I've used in terms of the best compromise between looks and minimal use of screen space. Pushpin looks great but you can't view much vertically.

I like this theme because you can have the contact "icons"/pics (left or right) while squeezing in tons of text vertically.

rospell

Text Editors by rs2000 5 comments

This is a decent little editor but unfortunately it doesn't support any form of wrapping, not even static wrap.

For anyone interested, it's built on Qt3 so there's no performance issues with moderately long lines (as there is with Qt4 editors due to a bug in QTextEngine). - Jul 13 2010
rekonq Web Browser

Browser by adjam 290 comments

It works but I'm getting glitches, which either has to do with the packaging or with rekonq or with my system. E.g. the scrollbar sometimes doesn't adopt my system color theme. And rekonq always crashes when trying to load Digg. - Jul 13 2010
Produkt

Plasma Themes by Saleel 58 comments

Dude, this theme is pretty fresh. I like the look of the pager plasmoid, and the expand arrow for the system tray. Well, there's a lot I like. One thing I don't like is the opacity of the Folder View and weather plasmoids (e.g. CWP). I think they would look better on the desktop (where they're typically placed) if they were more translucent.

I'm gonna use this one for a while. - Jul 13 2010
Kde kickoff icon

Icon Sub-Sets by erbazzone 5 comments

I think there's too much padding now. One nice thing about the default kickoff icon is that it's size better matches the size of the icons in smooth tasks and the task manager plasmoids. - Jul 08 2010

Facebook Emoticons

Emoticons by Montblanc 5 comments

I think that's probably a good thing (i.e. that they won't be the originals) since the originals are not all that pretty, especially compared with e.g. the oxygen emoticon set.

I look forward to the alternative emoticon set! - Jun 27 2010
Facebook Emoticons

Emoticons by Montblanc 5 comments

Likely the only way to get some decent icons neutral with respect to background color is to do them from scratch. Actually I would just be happy if someone took icons from other places and packaged them into a single Facebook theme consisting of only Facebook emoticons and their commands. - Jun 27 2010

rekonq Web Browser

Browser by adjam 290 comments

Is it possible to implement something so that the browser effectively does NOT inherit the KDE color scheme? It would be useful for users of dark schemes so that pages would render as if they inhereited light theme elements. A lot of websites idiotically set text color to black without setting the background to a light color which makes text unreadable.

Perhaps this can be done by providing a bunch of style sheets by default? - Jun 08 2010

I've reported a bug for this already, but I'm wondering if anybody else is experiencing the bug where "No results" is shown when filtering by Genres, even when there are genres entered into the metadata of the audio files in the library. - May 17 2010

gwenview

Graphic Apps by bk12 105 comments

I get a lot of errors referring to nepomuk and then when I click on a folder it says "error reading file://..." for every file in the folder. This is what is causing the hdd thrashing.

The initial nepomuk errors go away when I enable nepomuk but the main problem persists with all the "error reading..." errors. Odd. Is there any special commands/switches I can use in gwenview to narrow down the problem? (--help doesn't show much.) - Apr 23 2010

In the search results, it's generally best to use the pdf filename rather than the embedded title info which is rarely accurate (and things will likely never change in this respect). Yes, the filename is listed underneath, but it's not easy to discern. - Apr 18 2010

Gwenview was fine before, but after some updates (now running KDE 4.4.2 on Kubuntu 9.10) it thrashes my hdd when opening a file. I have to wait at least a minute sometimes, and this is even when the Dolphin folder is already cached for thumbnails. I've also noticed that when you minimize and restore it starts trashing the hdd again. I should report this as a bug, but anyone else seeing this? - Apr 11 2010
