KLaunch2 - kbfx button Various KDE Extensions

the problem is that a single graphical button that has an inherent directional quality won't cut it. having N different buttons, one for each possible direction, is not a very lucid way to go.

and how do you translate a graphic? that's not how i18n works. it needs to be created at run time based on regular, unicode text. that means having a button that can be stretched horizontally and look good, which can have text of any given font rendered to it and look decent, etc. it's possible, but this button isn't it.

evidently you didn't get me, no.

imagine this button being in the middle of the panel. you later say that KDE looks ugly (which i disagree with, but whatever), and yet you can't see how this might be an issue?

> Lazy people make miraculous Excuses

hold on here. did you just call me lazy? or are you attempting some cheap psychology on me, expecting me to say "i'm not lazy, let me prove it to you by doing exactly what you want"?

i thought your continuous off-topic postings on theDot were annoying, but you've just redefined the limits of that now haven't you.

and speaking off-topic ranting posts, as usual, you managed to work one in here too.

you seem to really want to be heard and have your issues addressed. i appreciate that. but the way you go about it makes me want to completely ignore you. why would i want to spend any time whatsoever dealing with a person who complains, moans and insults randomly when i could be working with any of the numerous people who are positive, upbeat and help create an atmosphere of care and mutual respect?

something to think about, perhaps.
