QuickAccess

Plasma 4 Widgets

Description:

This is a small applet designed for the panel to have quick access to the most used folders.

Hints for the Drag and Drop support:
you can open the dialog by hovering for 1 sec over the applet. The same way you can navigate through the directory tree, simply stay 1 sec over a folder/the backarrow to get into the folder...
If you drop a file/folder it will land in the folder you are in, no matter if you dropped it on a foldericon or not...


If you see any bugs or think something is a design failure please inform me about it.


I have to thank Luciano Leveroni and Marcel Nowaczyk for their help, suggestions and testing, without them you would have a lot of bugs in the released version...

It is clear that this plasma widget project is dead, almost two year with no updates.
For the people that don't know, there is a fork for this plasmoid that works well with the lastest KDE vesion:

Please add a column with the configured Places to the Quick Access Plasmoid.
Places are made expressly for this purpose: to provide quick access to a
specific folder. Adding a separate Quick Access Plasmoid for each folder that
the user needs access to is ridiculous. Thanks.

Note that this was originally filed as a KDE wishlist item:

I've few errors when I want to compile it.

################################################################################################
CMake Error at /usr/share/kde4/apps/cmake/modules/FindPlasma.cmake:13 (message):
FindPlasma.cmake is deprecated. Now with KDE 4.2 Plasma is part of kdelibs
and automatically found using find_package(KDE4) instead.

Replace the variables previously coming from FindPlasma.cmake as follows:

PLASMA_OPENGL_FOUND -> KDE4_PLASMA_OPENGL_FOUND

PLASMA_LIBS -> KDE4_PLASMA_LIBS

PLASMA_INCLUDE_DIR -> KDE4_INCLUDE_DIR or KDE4_INCLUDES, should be already
set anyway

PLASMA_FOUND -> nothing, it's always there if KDE4, version 4.2 or newer
has been found.

If you see this error message in a module within KDE/, update it from svn,
it has been fixed already.

you can download debian package from this url:
http://ansani.it/debian/pool/dists/experimental/i386/plasma-quickaccess_0.7.1-1_i386.deb

you can change experimental and i386 with your distro and arch :=)

Can you add an option to move the 'Open' bar to the bottom. This will allow me to use less mouse movement to open a folder.

After clicking on a few folders an up arrow appears next to the 'Open' bar. This arrow suggests that the current location will go up. Instead, it takes me Home. Maybe the arrow is changed by the current skin, but its appearance is confusing. Can you change the icon or its behaviour.

Displaying the plugged removable devices in the quickaccess-plasmoid would
certainly be nice... :-)

and the device notifier could then maybe even be killed, in case the
quickaccess-plasmoid would send a fancy notification via dbus to the
notification-part of plasma :-)

...maintained? There hasn't been an update in a while and the Gentoo package is way out of date...

...so out of date, that the package no longer exists.

If someone has the old Gentoo package and this is still being maintained, maybe someone (or I) can update the package.

This is about the coolest Plasmoid I can think of and I really miss it since I moved on from Kubuntu to Gentoo with KDE 4.2.

...never mind. I found 0.7.1 in portage overlay "kde-testing" and installed it!

...can you imagine how happy I am, that I don't need to use folder view anymore?

Currently, you have to click the plasmoid icon before the quickaccess appears. This is basically similar to the one docked on the kicker.

http://www.imagecross.com/03/image-hosting-view-03.php?id=135Weird-Quickaccess-Plasmoid.png

Wouldn't it be better if the clicking is not needed. i.e we have something similar to the folder view plasmoid as seen in the screenshot BUT with the ability to navigate, sort, filter etc. Like a mini-dolphin window pinned to the desktop.

Thanks in advance!

I used quickaccess for a while but realized i was always clicking on the same 3/4 folders. Then i ran into view folder and set these 3/4 folderview on my desktop so i can drag drop and have a direct access(i mean 2 less click and no browsing can't be quicker). But i was so use to quickaccess than sometime i find myself looking for the navigation button .and when i click on a folder i dream that it show me a file without opening dolphin...

I've been using quickaccess since before kde 4.2 came out and this has always been an issue.

For some reason, some entries in normal kde context menu are not preset. Examples include the all important, "delete" option or move to thrash, copy, cut paste etc.

http://s3.supload.com/free/Quickaccess_Context_Menu_Delete.png/view/

Is there any way to use the standard context menu?

p.s Great work so far. Would be nice to include customizable filters which can filter by type etc. So you can only display certain file types you want to see. This can be implemented similarly to the "sort" menu we have already.

Thanks in advance!
