Description:

normally when I'm looking for a new background I use kuickshow
it's fast and just an easy way to find a good picture however when I found the one I want I then have to rebrowse the directory for the file and drag it to my desktop to set it.

this patch however makes life easy :)
browse for the file you want right click choose set as background -> how you want it displayed .. boom.. your done :D

I'm not very good with C++ this is acually the first time I've ever used a dcop signal.. QByteArrays were a pain! @.@ luckally I found my exact situation inside kdebase ;)

Have you don this using the kuickshow_ng
branch ?? In Kuickshow_ng there is no need
for any external image lib anymore and we
have some new features like random slideshow (pause) .. ans some other things..

where do you see that kuickshow_ng? in the kde cvs seems like kuickshow is dead..
http://webcvs.kde.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/kdegraphics/kuickshow/src/

And with the latest Xorg (composite enabled) kuickshow is unusable.. is this fixed in kuickshow_ng?

Ohh scroll down to :
Show only files with tag: All tags / default branch .
Select kuickshow_ng and you will see the NG branch files ... if there is an error or a bug please report it !!
I'm using the NG version since 3 months and i'm happy with the changes ...

Even the kuickshow_ng branch looks dead to me.. no changes for many months.
Am I mistaken or is it dead?

Yes, i think you are right ... it seems that kuickshow* is dead at the moment. The only solution i see is, use the ng branch as main one. Or drop the whole project if nobody whants to continue on this project.

Its the kuickshow_ng branch mainly all imlib dependencies are removed. And some features were added. You have to set this TAG and get this branch from cvs ... hope this helps.
