To the author, i just mailed you with some suggestions and designer files, just wanted to let you know. thanks - Jan 27 2004
also, i just noticed the added themes section on your website, but shouldn't it be the job of the currently selected icon set to choose icons? IMHO the themes feature kind of detracts from KDE usability wise and common Look & Feel, and teh ability for the user to set Look and Feel in one place (which should be the icon KCM). - Jan 26 2004
...but a few issues, firstly the file selector appears to be Qt's rather than KDE's, should be a minor change.
Also the icons are HiColour, but seen as CrystalSVG is default, woudl it be possible to provide a CrystalSVG icon, possibly use the kppp icons.

Also is there plans to allow one KTrayNetworker to manage multiple devices (eg eth0, eth1 and ppp0) and display 3 seperate tray icons to monitor these devices?

Anyways, once again, thanks for this contribution. - Jan 26 2004

Just a suggestion, the licence seems a little out of place on the front page of the app, maybe in the about box
?

Also the reference to the documents in teh sources, couldn't you add a help button which open khelp on the backup page containing the documents, or something similair, the reason i suggest this is because not all peopel will compile from source, and getting from /usr/share/doc/whatever seems a little out of the scope of a normal user.

Apart from that, it seems a very nice tool, i espically like the icon on the 1st page! - Jan 26 2004

...to create KDE apps, using the various KDE libs? I noticed on the site that it provides QT bindings, but will using KDE bindings be possible (if any exist) or if there is a plan to do this (or is this more in the scope of Kbasic, actually is Kbasic still going?) - Jan 21 2004

Maybe changing the last two icons (Home and 'K'), they look ugly and drag it down. I know that a nicer Home and 'K' is included in 3.2. Also the mouse looks wrong (colour) but i suppose that's ok.

Other than that, nice. - Dec 27 2003

Good to hear it is "doable", lets just hope that someone with the knowledge to do this jumps on and has a crack at it.

About the busy'ness of it, i agree it looks a little too busy there, but like you saw, maybe it's just the mockup.

And concerning the windec, that doesn't matter really... to be honest the windec is ugly.. :) - Dec 20 2003

This really is a beautiful wallpaper, nice subtle soft line/curve thruough the middle, nice shades of blue, and the cog is just right!

Very nice and not too distracting, great to work with. - Dec 15 2003

One thing i really loved about the Crystal SVG Beta1 set was the fact that the back icon was green, whereas teh rest where blue, from what i can gather, this was an aciident, but IMHO, a very brilliant accident, as it (at least for me) improved usability so much, it broke up the 5 icons in a row which where round and blue, and helped to differntiaite between them all.

So basically what i'm asking is if a Green backwards can be included (or even better made default ;) )

have the past 3 releases of Ksidebar (including this one) not worked at all, and needed patching or modifying, if so, how does the author compile these, and doesn't he/she check the source and wait around for 5 mins after posting update to see if there are any simple issues with it? - Oct 26 2003

why not work with the Ksidebar author and, its just seen as his is written in C++ instead of html/python... and KDE is C++. it's just that it seems fragmentation is silly when we could have a better project with two good authors, instead of 2 projects with 1 good author each.

Don't get me wrong, i like this also, its just that it seems that the Ksidebar project seems to have more prospects. - Oct 02 2003

that is planned, just as soon as either

1) Xfree gets its arse into gear

2) Xfree forks and things like taht are worked on

as the dropshadow stuff is a workaround and not a part of X. But it will be there oneday (maybe even slicker may develop a workaround)

Also the transluency in the screenshot and the anti-aliasing of the cards won't be possible soon. (AFAIK) - Jul 23 2003
i built it on mandrake, but getting the CVS is just as easy just do:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/slicker login

#Password is blank so just press enter

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/slicker checkout slicker

Then enter slicker Dir and:

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure
make
make install - Jul 23 2003

Actually would providing larger ones be possible also, for higher resolutions?

thaks again - Jun 29 2003
OHH these are nice, add a touch of sophistication to KDE :)

Would there be anymore on the way?
Also could you commit them to 3.2, i think no one will have any probs with that (seen as you made them rather than copying) - Jun 29 2003

Hello, i've just got your latest version of the applet and it resizes fine (well almost) the problem is it doesnt seem to be relative ie when i make the taskbar 128 pixels i get reallt tall kpager, but the width is teh same, could you make it so that the width and height stay relative to each other, as to make teh same shaped window for each V desktop not a really tall rectangle but same width, and so that it takes advantage of teh space it has, as i gave teh applet half o kicker and it still stayed at that horible shape.

Thanks - Jun 21 2003

erm... well the march, which is ina few hours is for real if that is what you was trying to ask.

but yeah, holland shows the great popsiive effects of seeing drug addiction more of a mediacl issue rather personal. - Jun 14 2003
Well personally, you know what i say...

Legalise every drug, control heavily, tax haevily according to risk to health and society and use taxes to rebuild communities the prohibition of drugs wrecked, use the taxes to pay for the health care of the users, use the taxes to teach and inform.

Be mature about it

I mean if cutting the main funds of most terrorist organisations and organised crime organisations isn't a good enough what is... except... giving the people the choice to do so, we tolerate other forms of what could be deemed 'self-destruction' why not these?

Actually im going on a legalization of cannabis march tomorrow! - Jun 13 2003
