This is a step (no, make that several steps) in the right direction. It definitely looks better than all the other 'usability' menus out there -- regardless of the desktop in question (KDE,GNOME etc).

Just one suggestion: Have you looked at the menu in SuSE 10 beta3+ ? It has a search field that automatically greys out menu choices that do not match your search string. Add that feature to this menu and we have something unique on the Linux desktop, IMO. - Sep 05 2005

Hi, this may be naive query but does your app support Smart Cards? My company network requires a smart card to be authenticated against before I can get access to their network.

Does the smart card support comes as part of this app or the VPN software? Sorry, I said the query would be naive .. - Jul 31 2005

Last I read on the Kubuntu Wiki page, they know about issues with kdesu to do exactly what you've pointed out. It seems they are working on it ... so stay tuned!

This is one project which is going to rock :-) - Mar 31 2005
In fact, its a good practice to use sudo. In Kubuntu (or Ubuntu) its as simple as saying:

sudo apt-get update

rather than

su -
apt-get update

The difference is (at least on Kubuntu) that you have to enter your own password and not the root one.

So if my username is scott and password tiger, I would enter tiger when sudo prompts me for a password.

The same applies when you run a gui program that requires "root" password. - Mar 21 2005

Yes, this is a great idea. Also, we need a "working" progress bar for "Install new Icon Theme" as well. Currently, it shows the empty progress bar and then closes the window when completed. It has been pending for a rather long time, IMHO. - Mar 07 2005

Lots of posts here on kde-apps and kde-look try to find ways of improving KDE menu -- among other things :-) but most of the ideas are inspired by Windows. Now admittedly, we've got *used* to the Windows interface but its not perfect and in fact it lacks some very common sense things.

I feel the KDE menu has its own strengths and one should build on that rather than clone XP. - Jan 23 2005

No I don't agree with you .... my wife is of the above "secretary" type. She was apprehensive of using my fully configured (email, multimedia, office utilities) yoper linux desktop until .... until I used the Win 2000 look for her user login -- mine's got the MacOS X look ;-)

Now, she does not care, and anyway she likes firefox under windows, so for most operations she does not know the difference in appearance or working.

I think giving users a familiar look-and-feel is not an insult to linux ... in fact its a compliment ... for instance, how easy is it to mimic the linux look and feel on windows??? - Sep 29 2004

Can this utility be used to provide the fine grained control of selecting individual applications of KDE rather than packages? I second the above post that KDE installs too much stuff and although there are quite a few friends out there who may want "the works", lot of us want a minimalistic desktop.

Now, please don't point me towards GNOME or XFCE or any other desktop. I want KDE but want to install only the things I use everyday!

Qbuildkde would be better than konstruct if we can have this fine grain control -- along with the GUI! It would be a killer app for most of us, IMHO. - Sep 07 2004

This project and similar are a great way to extend konqueror. However, I would like to see symbolic names for protocol type URLs e.g. burn:/ such as

"My Home Folder" -- file:/ or home:/
"Windows Network" -- smb:/ or lan:/
I wonder if this can be implemented within konqueror, so that when I drop down the location bar, it shows me these symbolic names rather than the URLs.

It would, I think, make the job of newbies easier.

A good example is what Xandros has done with their XFM file manager. It is clearly konqueror with some great improvements! - Aug 23 2004

Great stuff. I am using the baghira style myself and have a couple of questions for ya:
1. What is the docker that you are using? I use ksmoothdock and although its good, it cannot display the clock like you have there!!
2. Why is the control center in asian font? Does it not use the system locale settings?
3. What are those icons called?

Hi Stefano,
Where can I download the image for longhorn clock face shown in one of the screenshots on your site?

Also, i have changed the clock face to an aqua one ... but how do you change the clock hands? I still get the thick black and red ones.

Great project and good progress!
