It would be much better if you could release it under a free license, preferably the GPL, which I believe the standard KDE icon sets use? - Dec 17 2005
The same goes for your other works... - Dec 10 2005
They're a much better solution for hotplugging and detecting new media. - Jun 22 2005

But damn you too! You've made me want to draw some more to further complete the entries in my KMenu configuration! After exams, must do it after exams... - Apr 29 2005
First, the kmenu image ought to be part of the Programs menu button. This way if the menu is on the far left of the menu you can shove the mouse up into the corner and always click on the menu. It's also just far more intuitive.
The configure script didn't find my KDE installation prefix, which is the standard for KDE - /usr/kde/3.4
As for configuration, what'd be really brilliant is if you could define your own menus from scratch, but that'd be quite complex! - Apr 03 2005
It's actually more work navigating the feeds of these websites who provide nothing more than a title and a link than it is just loading them up in Konqueror. At least then you can simply scroll down a page to see all the news items. - Feb 18 2005
Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements 9 comments
A lot of your ideas have already been discussed on places like the kde-usability mailing list, the bugs database and even this web site.
If you have the time, try to review some of these past discussions, then post clear wish list items to the bugs database where you think the KDE devs might still be willing to implement them. - Jan 06 2005
From a usability point of view, the bigger slider is a great idea. It would only be a problem if the slider widget was so short that the handle took up most of the slider's length. - Oct 26 2004
I don't want to start some witch hunt here, but if someone were to ask KDE-Look to take it down on copyright grounds, KDE-Look would be in a difficult position unless you could prove you got permission.
Nor do I want to accuse you, but a lot of people seem to say "I got permission" when it seems obvious they didn't! - Aug 12 2004

Assign a keyboard shortcut to "save view profile filemanagement", remove the menubar, and use the keyboard shortcut to save it :) - Aug 03 2004
In other words, rather than having the "burn" and "settings" icons within the folder (which is rather unintuitive... are they files on the CD or buttons?) they ought to be on the toolbar and in the menu. You drag files onto the "CD" then hit the burn button; a small dialogue pops up, asking you to select the CD device, the burning speed, if it should blank the CDRW, if it should eject when done, and, if they're audio files, should it be an audio CD. - Jul 28 2004
You should contact the author of those SVG tools on fd.o, since he and I are working with freedesktop.org towards some cross-desktop SVG tools. He'd be interested in what you're doing, and you could develop your tools as part of the fd.o project:

They were used, for example, on the Lila icon set to have a blue and purple version. They can also do a lot more, if you have a good look. - Jul 19 2004
Scaling of bitmaps on the panel is horrible, and having to provide all the default sizes is a pain both for artists and those with custom sized panels. - Jul 15 2004
It certainly shouldn't represent a copyright issue. But I can change it a little if it makes people nervous. - Jun 29 2004
About the colours: yes, I used the colour script, like so:
# cd /path/to/svg-icons/svg-utils
# ./svgcolor.py svgcolor-xml/lila/lila-blue.xml ../../lila/kde/scalable ~/lila-blue
And it worked fine :) - May 11 2004
Feel free to have a stab yourself, even if they're rubbish (they might give me some ideas). Just copying crystal versions is a bit dull! - Apr 19 2004
Hopefully I'll fix it, but if anyone can help, I'd welcome a solution. - Apr 06 2004
And yes, I have all of those icons in Kontact done, though there may be more that aren't shown by default I'm missing. I'll release the work I've done so far soon, and if there are yet more icons missing, I'll try to accomodate :) - Apr 05 2004
Or in gentoo with "emerge aquafont" and/or "emerge aquapfont". - Mar 31 2004
If there are any icons in particular you want doing, post a list here and I'll prioritise them. - Mar 30 2004
You've created a directory, ~/.skippyrc , and then put the file in that, which is wrong.
cp /path/to/skippyrc-default ~/.skippyrc - May 19 2004
Otherwise... we have in mind pretty much what I wrote above :) You could import your flat theme into the CVS repository, and then it'd provide a second, KDE-only icon theme to work on re:the utils we're developing. If you know any Python, or indeed any other programming language, you could also help develop these utils. - May 08 2004
By the way, am I correct in thinking you work with SVGs?
The reason I ask is that I'm working on a new freedesktop.org project, based around the Lila iconset I'm working on with GNOME, Xfce, Enlightenment and other platform people, for SVG icons. We're working both on:
o A reference set of icons
o A set of tools to cope with porting between desktops
o A set of tools to do interesting things with SVGs (currently we can change colourschemes)
We're also possibly going to work through fd.o to unify the icon specs for all desktop environments that work with fd.o, so that porting becomes a thing of the past.
If you'd like to do this, drop me an e-mail (look at my profile, and my web site, and you'll find it). - May 07 2004
There have been endless debates about the kmenu, and one thing is for certain: KDE is not going down the WinXP route any time soon. Not because KDE hates WinXP, but because the WinXP has a lot of usability flaws. For example:
- There are too many different kinds of icons that have different functions; some open applications, some open submenus, some open dialogue boxes. There's no indication as to what each icon will do
- You have to be far more careful with your mouse to select some of the submenus, because, unlike in the default kmenu configuration, you can't just run your mouse up against the side of the desktop.
That said, if you or someone else could code it, there'd be a lot of happy KDE users about. - Apr 30 2004

So you could very quickly produce any colour scheme you like. Find a few good defaults and package the script with SVGs ;) - Apr 19 2004
It'd be good if KPhotoBook made use of them! - Apr 12 2004
