Run Command...

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mononoke 26 comments

aaah, sorry. i GOT it now ;)

i see right now, that the Preference-Dialog of a Desktop Icon already has got a Tab-entry that allows to set the Command to "Run As Diffrent User" or "Run in Terminal".

so just forget about my talking related to that thing in the other reply..
Your Idea to use the Advanced-Options for the Shortcut is totally "appreciated" or expected :) :)

thanx :) - Sep 07 2003
Run Command...

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mononoke 26 comments

Hi, winterwolf, you added this additional comment in the bug-list:

>"it should createa shortcut based on
>the settings in the "options >>"
>section.

> This way if the suer has the app set
>at a higher priority or to runa s
>root etc. when he
>clicks the shortcut it would be
>launched wth the configurations fromt
>he run menu that he
>made at the time.

I think, that this is a kind of security issue, that can be dangerous..
of course, people can "lock" the desktop, but they don't always do that.

My idea of "Create Shortcut on Desktop" was really just a simple shortcut to the application.

But if people really want it to be "based on the options section, then the passwort should be always requested if running a tool as root or with high priority.

Just imagine the case:

1. someone doesn't look the desktop, because he is alone at home with his/her cat or little son/daughter.

2. then the person went to toilette, with unlocked desktop.

3. the can takes a walk on your keyboard.. or the son/daughter just wanna play keyboard on your keys ^-^;

4. you have got important stuff/work running on the desktop.

5. the app (started by the cat/kid) that is running as root or running with highest priority is lagging and maybe freezing (because of any reason, noone knows) the computer.

6. "Big shock", mv cat* /tmp/trash or whatever :p

hm, i think, just a simple Shortcut would be easy and handy.



another *BUG* i request you to submit about "Run Command" is.....

Selecting an Entry from the History-Combo-Box should NEVER run the command immediately.

Think about many diffrent use-cases:
-> if people entered a command, and want to edit it, it is not possible if they selct it from the list. they have to type in the whole long command with all the options and parameters.. :/

-> if people make a mistake and selecting the wrong command from the list because they are in a hurry or have other difficulties ;) then it maybe very "unwanted" to start the wrong application. maybe the application is very big and/or the computer is verly slow, or the applications that is wrongly started have got security/private content or anything else.

Shortly:

THE USER expects to only select a Command from the list and "manually" click the "Run" Command. IT IS ALWAYS LIKE THAT, if there is no "Run" button, or a checkbox like "run automatically" is selected, then it is ok. (selecting Url's from the Browsers History-Combo is a diffrent thing.. ;)


and another feature i just got the idea right now..

"Is it possible to "remove the entries/clear the history Combo" from the "Run Command" Dialog ?
Because, if there are so many commands in the list. it might be even more simple to enter the command again..
or.. thinking about security issues.. it might be useful to clear the list, just like "clear History" in "Recent Documents".

Run Command...

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mononoke 26 comments

ah, because MS Windows's "Run Command" doesn't have that too ? actually you didn't say any reason..

as Winterwolf said.. i also thought of it before (that's why i made diffrent screenshots): Add to "Quick Launch" or "add to Kicker" is not really important, but, of course "Create Shortcut on Desktop" can be really handy _especially_ for newbies (to kde or even computer).

sorry, i couldn't find any reason, why it is "doesn't belong to it".

Just think about this Use-Case:

1. installing any "non-kde-shipped-application" (or even compiled and installed something by your own.) them, very often, the executeable is in the "path", but the "make install" didn't add at least one icon on desktop/quick launch/kicker or kmenu. (that should be definitly STANDARD, at least 1, somewhere the user expects)


2. after long time of searching.. (even maybe Kappfinder didn't find it) people open an console/xterm or pressing "Alt+F2" for "Running the Application".

3. Found the Application using "Run Command" and then people can immediately "add/create a Shortcut on desktop".

in my point of view, very handy.

Sure. people also can right-click on desktop, and then they can start searching again... for the entry "link to application". but then, there is still a Dialog that they think about, they have to fill all the Inputfield's. (Really Anoying For Beginners! or for people with bad eys, who can't find out "link to application" between all other "new file.." items)

(kde-look wasn't reachable at the time i want to add this)

thanks, Winterwolf, i saw you just submitted.. well, the earlier, the better :) - Sep 07 2003

Systemtray + Clockapplet = "using an indivitual transparent-color" (like in your screenshot) is really nice!

just great.

i am using the window-decoration from "kde_xp" (Theme/Style) that you can find on kde-look. actually it is an IceWM-Theme (using pixmaps) the current engine of Icq-WM cannot display "round window corners" correctly, but i heard, there is already a patch (maybe in CVS) that can display round corners:)
the Style i am using is called "Alloy", also from this site. - Jun 14 2003

cool, thanks :)
actually, i am also getting confused..
once i wanted to download and run the program "konstruct". i thought it was about downloading the latest cvs, compiling, installing it,...., but now, i only can find that konstruct downloads and compiles the latest stable (now KDE 3.1.x), hm, confusing, but anyway, maybe my maschine is too slow for compiling kde from cvs, so i will wait until there is a nice beta or until the final version. until then, i always check about recent cvs-screenshots :D - Jun 10 2003

KDE Plasma Screenshots by Phemt 21 comments

who knows...
if you say like that, you should show "what's new, what's hot" in your screenshot, not just the boring "karamba" theme, and, there are already enough osx-karamba-themes-screenshots on kde-look. that's my opinion ;)


for example, i am looking for news like:
-> font-shadow is already working or not ?
-> icewm-themes are drawn with round-corners or not ?
-> context/popup-menus in relation to usability, means: right-click on trashcan still shows entrys like "Compress", "Share in Network", "Create Data-CD with K3b", and so on....

Various Stuff by thormedia 14 comments

a feature like this would be great and i think this is really missing in QT yet. but i guess i would prefer other drawing in the window-backgrounds, not like this.. 'cause i don't want my PC turn into an apple, though, maybe some colored background like winxp's (internet/file) Explorer.
and i also don't really like the stripes-background from liquid so much.

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by organisation 12 comments

i could complain so so so much about the big sized Dialogs in KDE just everywhere, and already since a long time, and i know, there are other people, who would just laugh about such big dialogs.. i am asking myself, if the all the developers have got a screen-size like 2800x1800 or whatever, really.
hm, i already have got an idea about that problem, since it is so easy to design just every setup-dialog of the whole Controlcenter (or its single kcm-modules) in a diffrent, (already known!;) , convienient style !
