What can I say. I am short of words. Thanks alot for making this. I was using the RTM plasmoid before for keeping in touch with my tasks. however since google akonadi resource gained todo support for google tasks, I since deprecated my need for RTM and used your plasmoid as replacement for the RTM widget. Its just what I need can't ask for more. and dude packaging for the major distros and in 32/64 bit? WOW!! am speechless!!! Thanks a great deal :) - Sep 06 2011

I just wanna say I big thankyou for making this. You have really brought so much colour and funkiness to my system. Its really hard to create a very comprehensive icon set for kde and I think you very much achieved that (which is no small job) Thanks once again :) - Sep 06 2011

Better integration with kaddressbook would be really awesome having to type each number offhand is really hard.. Also the ability to click a number on kaddressbook under sms and have it launch kdroid would be just super.

Keep up the great work :) - Aug 24 2011

Thanks for this plugin, however you should try and add a screenshot and brief documentation on how to use this. I installed it and restarted krunner, made sure the plugin is enabled. However I still can not figure out how to use this to quick dent. do I prefix my dent with choqok or dent? or how does it work? - Jun 30 2011

what could I be doing wrong? am on kubuntu 10.10 with kde 4.5.3. this issue started after I upgraded to the latest package. - Nov 25 2010
While on a whole am mostly indifferent and had not even noticed the issue till u mentioned it. I think for UI consistency it would be nice if all the meter icon stays in one side and the icon same. having the meter for the default volume slider at a different position other than the applications breaks consistency somewhat. Just IMHO - Oct 16 2010
This is the best and most useful plasmoid ever. I simply can not thank you enough for this. I have a simple request though. If the plasmoid could have the same monochrome icon like u get on the systemtray in kde 4.5 so as to maintain consistency with the rest of the systemtray? - Oct 16 2010

Abandoned. This icon set is one of the best for kde. and it could really do with an update :) keep up the good work - Jun 03 2011
Thanks for this awesome work, Its often understated how much polish a good icon set brings to a DE. The Oxygen icon sit is a classic but falls short in quite a few areas (most especially the volume icon which is just stone age) This Icon theme is really cool, can't wait till it is finished. One small request would be to host it on kde-look so that it works well with kde internet aware icon theme install. Thanks for the great work - Aug 22 2010

Couple of things I noticed about the application.

I can not get it to format if I start it as a normal user. It only works when started as root. Is there a way you could port it to policykit so that privileged actions can be handled in a clean way that is transparent to the user.

Also I could not figure how to integrate it with the device manager application.

It would be nice if you can make it use the kde's notification system to notify users of job success (or failure)

even when launched as root it was impossible to get it to rename a drive before formatting. That part is grayed out.

Thanks for this app mate it is one more missing link of kde fixed. - Jan 17 2011

I have this issue where some icon (like the play icon) are missing. I was wondering if its possible to allow the app to use the native icon set being used by the system it is installed on (Or an option for this) This would allow for better UI consistency. Just a thought :) - Jan 15 2011

Hi while googling for kopete support for mpris I saw your patch. unfortunately I am a noobie but would really appreciate if you could guide me on how I can test it. I am quite comfortable with compiling things from source. All I just need is a little guidance on how I can test your code. Thanks .. By the way I use mpd so I can test if it does work with mpd (I already have mpdris running and working with choqok) - Jan 13 2011

Thanks you so much for the tip. This Plasma theme is gorgeous.

A suggestion: Could u change the bluetooth icon to become something a bit more monochrome? cause the current icon looks a bit out of place from the rest of the others.

Blur: To be frank I am not sure I can tell if it is working. I expected the Panel and Kickoff menu etc to be semi transparentish. But that is not the case for me with your theme. - Jan 05 2011
Does this theme support the blur effect for plasma. It seems not to be working for me if when I applied this theme. Also what style/colour theme are you using on your screenshot - Jan 04 2011

Took the word out of my mouth. Clementine even though is a fork of amarok 1.4 It is more of a Qt app than a kde app. It comes with no kde dep and lacks the kind of kde integration you get with something like amarok or juk. Not that this makes it a bad app. I just feel it would be more appropriate to put it in the Qt-app section. - Dec 12 2010

I added the proxy settings to etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf and kpackagekit still ignores it when trying to download packages. here is my /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf tell me if I am doing anything wrong - Nov 04 2010
It would be nice if support for apt-proxy servers like apt-cacher could be added to kpackagekit. right now it is the only thing which is preventing me from using it on Kubuntu 10.10 other than that I find the transformation from something which I found painful to use to something totally awesome a major UI miracle. :)

I tried installing it again. This time I installed the wicd-daemon with aptitude --without-recommends install the wicd daemon without the gtk-client dep. I was able to compile the kde client and ran it fine. Thanks - Oct 20 2010
My biggest issues concerning the wicd daemon is that installing it also pulls in the gtk client for wicd. I really don't know how the two can be reconciled.
- Oct 20 2010
I was not able to get this to work. an installation procedure would be nice. Even though I eventually got it to compile and run. It did not show any of my network interface (eth0 and wlan0) it just showed an empty box when I refresh nothing happens. Is this application just a frondend client for the wicd daemon? in which case do I still need to install wicd? or its comes included with the wicd daemon. I would appreciate some clarification in the installation procedure - Oct 20 2010

This is an awesome application and something I have been looking for in very long time. I use to use soundconverter which is also decent but its gnome/gtk. One thing I would love to add is a way to make the menus options (the options for choosing the different codec format a bit more user friendly. Like mp3, OGG, WMA etc. Thanks for the great job and keep it up :) - Jun 16 2010
