Its great, very smooth and pretty.

It should display country names though, right now it is just major cities.

Oxygen icons on the Navigation tab would be nice.

And of course, this being a KDE app, more options ;) Like the ability to turn off city names entirely.

Also, jpeg artifacts get pretty bad when you zoom in a lot. Maybe use higher quality jpg or png to make it more useful offline. An extra 2 or 3mb isnt going to make much difference to anyone but will make this app a lot better.

And I, for one, would not mind having MS world/globe/whatever they call it images for it. We are stuck using proprietary google apps for this purpose anyway, so its a step up. - Mar 24 2007

i just installed this in gentoo and every time it opens it complains that PyQT is not installed. i have it installed and the config dialog works. Is it possible that it is looking for PyQT and not PyQt and then reporting the error? - Jan 27 2006
How about making just one config window to take care of all the settings. same as aero AIO and soundmania. its much easier that way for the user, and reduces a lot of clutter from the menu. - Jul 23 2005

Why not make it so that if it doesnt find the proram in the kmenu, it will just launch whatever you typed in, like the way alt+f2 does.

More importantly, im running dapper and it took me a LONG time to figure out how to use it. It is a great app, but it is not very obvious. Im not sure how to fix this though without an annoying popup window. - Jan 22 2006

well, heres a link to the oxygen site the most important part is the "about" section, as well as the previews

Basically, toolbar icons are going to now be 32px, so 16px will be out. there is no reason not to include 16px with your theme, but 32px should be available as well.

If i remember correctly, menu icons will be removed completely.

as for 256px, it really wont matter much if you decide to distribute the set as svg's, and it would make the size of the set huge, however in kde 4, the default desktop/file manager icon size will be 128px, so 256px will become the new "Huge" size. - Dec 20 2005
Since youre still just starting off, it might be a good time to consider following the Oxygen guidelines so that these icons are "KDE4 ready". basically, just making them high res png's or possibly svgs.

Anyway, they are very nice. - Dec 18 2005

I really like this new blue theme, but im having two problems with this.

1. I think this might just be my computer only, but i have a black line under the theme, not sure why its there.

2. the battery monitor says my battery is 107% charged and it needs -355 hours to fully charge it. you should make it stop at 100%, and then force it to say "Battery Fully Charged" instead of continuing to give an inaccurate time. - Dec 19 2005
this isnt the best place to ask this. go on a forum for general linux help or the forum for your distro. try something like when you ask there, make sure to tell them what distro version you are using and what kde version you have and all that type information. - Jul 12 2005

thats what they were trying to explain. HT is not the same as SMP, it is a fak smp and it is buggy. amarok uses threads, and HT doesnt work very well with that. it isnt amaroks fault. they shouldnt dumb down the app just to satisfy users of pentium 4's. also, as opposed to windows users, many linux users have multi-cpu machines and amc cpus. people with p4 HT's are not the majority.

also, the most important part, ITS FIXED!!!! - Nov 08 2005

Can you please add settings for:

Tab height
Scrollbar width
scrollbar arrow color


i think that the tabs and scrollbars are too big right now, so it would be nice if they could be made smaller so it saves space and looks less "bloated".

also, what about having a flat theme for lipstik with no gradient? - Sep 09 2005

The window which lists the themes needs to support drag n drop of .skz files.

also, it would be nice to have it detect skz files in selected directories and add them to the list automatically(like amaroks collection browser). - Jul 24 2005
for me, it uses the system superkaramba icon instead of the bomb, which is great. - Jul 10 2005

When the song name is scrolling, it scrolls the text right off the edge. it looks like the text is scrolling off into the desktop. it would look better if the text box with the song name in it was moved 2 or 3px to the right. - Jul 11 2005

i know. i had a million different colors in them. im still new with inkscape, so it ended up in really unoptimized icons. im redoing a lot of them and putting them on a blank template, which takes the sizes down from 50kb to about 2 or 3. ive already redone all the major ones(above 50) now i need to redo all the ones above 20-30. by the time it reaches 1.0, all the icons should be less than 5 kb. - Jul 10 2005

ill have much more time in a few days to work on this cause school will be out. i hope to get around 2-300 icons done soon. i wanna finish this up cause im pretty excited to start work on the aero version.

this latest release has a problem with optimization, and some of the icons are about 50-90kb. im fixing them, and i can get the exact same icon to under 2kb. this should help performance a lot. i found out this problem after konqueror started crashing when i went to my home folder. - Jun 16 2005
