I realised after doing some more digging that it isn't a KDE app, shame really, would like to see this taking advantage of KDE's dialogs and what not.

Is there an aim to port this to OSX & Windows? If not has moving to be a KDE app been considered?

Also on the colour scheme front, seems like not the best option. Although it does look very nice, it would begin to annoy me after a while, not having it intergrated as well into the rest of my environment. This is the type of app id use for hours on end and it's colour scheme is pretty important. I just don't feel that we need more audio apps copying teh big names and theming it to look like a real studio is the way to go, because a computer isn't the same as a mixing desk & various rack mount stuff. But i'm sure the team will look towards innovation once a stable, feature rich state is released.

The VST intergration looks very nice also, rather impressive.

None the less, this is looking very interesting. I may give it a whirl if any Arch Linux packages pop up.

Thanks for the reply and broadening the choice of audio apps on Linux.

Looks very professional indeed. However one thing worries me, themeing. Does this obey the KDE defuault colour schemes and what not, or is it constantly the grey colour?
It does look nice like that but i worry about usability and not being able to change the colour scheme/theme?

If it's a branding issue, i think teh fact it's a KDE app using kde icons in this field is more than enough.

Also how stable is it, because at the moment rosegarden is far too unstable for everyday use. Is this superior to rosegarden in that respect?

Thanks - Dec 23 2005

The error image says:

"Error: An Error is occured during boot...
Switching to Verbose Mode..."

notice the use of capital at start of words, also notice "an error is occured.

it should read

"Error: An Error Has Occured During Boot...
Switching To Verbose Mode..."

(notice use of caps)

also possibly change the background.jpg to have a capital F for "For".

Thanks for the work and listening, Lou - Apr 20 2005

You really should demonstrate this style using a partially attractive setup, to be honestly brutal, it's absolutley awful, show some screen shots using a higher resolution (if you have the hardware capabilities that is) and not the nasty colours and reduciously nasty kicker config, then maybe more people will try it/vote good.... - Apr 19 2005

i do wonder why were still getting all these different network interface monitoring applets such as this, knetworkmonitor and knemo, wouldn't it be much more useful to create a KDE frontend to networkmanager(1) and use HAL and all it's goodness, no need to worry about maintaining teh backend tehn, and it supports some great stuff liek automatic network switching and great stuff like that.!?

one issue i had with cvs from about 2 weeks ago was that when recording one track which was rhythm and then a second seperate audio track which was lead, when recording lead i couldn't hear rhythm playback in the bacground, not sure if it was a config option anywhere, i checked but couldn't find it. strange thing was if i started recording not at begining of track but about 10 seconds in i got the rhythm track audio, but recording was all wrong., not in time. - Dec 17 2004

Well it's just an option in an rc file to specify icon size.

and tbh, it's a usability improvement, think about the people with bad eyesight or massive screens, 16x16 just doesn't always cut it.

Plus kmenu looks crappy with tiny icons and 32x32 desktop icons etc... - Oct 25 2004
Improving KDE

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

not sure if you saw my commentthe other day, but how about looking into the ability to modify the size of icons in Kmenu, this is done in suse 9.x and greatly improves the look of kde when using larger icons elsewhere, it seems to intergrate kmenu back into kde.

Also on the status bar comments made, how about removing the frames within, or around all of the status bar? i saw it in a patch the other week, but can't find it now, it also tidy'ed up the look of konqy in paticular, and would improve the new sidebar even more!

so, any comments on those to almost wishlist ideas? - Oct 25 2004

Video Apps by QDVDAuthor 81 comments

Ok, i'm a pkg maintainer for ArchLinux (KDE maintainer), 1stly i found the gui compiler thing to be a pain, espically when making pkg's, it's not really needed, so the ability to comile as normall (maybe ./configure --without-gui && make && make install ?).

Secondly, when i was trying to make a DVD the problem i had was with the video files, they were just standard mpg's and .avi's, would be nice if there was the ability to convert them to the desired format (dvd compatible mpg's), maybe using mencoder or ffmpeg or the mpeg tools?

It would be nice, but when the app uses technology only available in 3.2 it makes it a little difficult, plus 3.2 will eb standard just about by april time (when the distro's chuck out) so why do back-porting now?

HI again....
Hope you get this one, i won't attach the mockups this time, hopefully i can get them to you when we get to speak.

Basically i wanted to try and help development in some way to make the app more user-friendly interface wise as to help acceptance into KDE-proper, this is as i believe that KDE needs these sort of things, and given it is distro-neutral it should be in there!

Anyways, it would be great if you could setup a Sourceforge account, then we can make use of a Mailing List to speak about improvements and provide a 'sure-fire' way of getting in touch, from there we can discuss meeting up on IRC and ways to improve the app, extend it!

Just incase you can't or don't want to setup a SF account, here's how to get in touch via IRC:

server irc? irc.freenode.net
port? 6667
gmt time? 1500 GMT onwards on the 31st Jan
channel? #slicker
nick? cmf

just use ksirc or something to get on IRC.
