Description:

i ported the rounded selection, the rubberband and the konqueror sidebar patches from

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=16962

to KDE 3.4 cvs (i think it is the RC). they work fine for me. i hope it will work for the KDE 3.4 final also. :)

To enable the new konqueror sidebar look add the line "SidebarStyle=1" in the file $HOME/.kde/share/config/konqsidebartng.rc in the group that has the same name of the profile you want to change:
For example:
[webbrowsing]
SidebarStyle=1

or

[filemanagement]
SidebarStyle=1

thx to Andrunko, he created the original kde 3.3 improvement patch :)

I think you should of applied the rounded selection to the sidebar. From the screenshot they look a bit inconsistant.

Nice work - I hope someone will do a reverse patch when KDE 3.4 is out because the new sidebar in mozilla style looks totally unusable to me. I have at least 22 sidetabs, it is very handy the way it is in kde whatsoever before 3.4. Maybe you can make a patch for 3.4 to get back the old style?

don't set the

SidebarStyle=1

so you will have the old style :) for your sidebar

I have seen it but I thought that was only a workaround for 3.x - I worry about 3.4.

If this patch is working then it should be added to KDE's CVS, so that all can use it if they want to. Of course this should be configurable.

This has been discussed already on the kde-devel mailing list:

http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-devel&m=109863377620287&w=2.

Since Trolltech does not accept the QT patches (they work on QT 4 now), this won't get into KDE CVS.

Hello,
I tested your patch against my kconstruted kde 3.4rc1.
No pb during compilation, but I got rendering bugs : the rectangular selection left a trail on the desktop (bad redraw) and on konqueror icon view ; no pb in detailed view.
My syst: debian unstable + ubuntu's x.org.
If that can help...

sorry, but you are definitely to late. the feature freeze has been over 2 month ago and so it is neither in the rc nor in 3.4.
i'm using the rc currently and it is not in it. try it yourself...
