âFolder viewâ Screenlet â Linux alternative to âFencesâ

,----[ Quote ]
| Most of you probably know âFencesâ, a program 
| that organizes your cluttered desktop by letting 
| you create and put boxes called âFencesâ on your 
| desktop and then you can create multiple fences 
| and put your icons in them. For more info on 
| Fences check out Jacobâs post on Fences. Now i 
| really liked fences when i was using windows 
| once upon a time and i was a little disappointed 
| when i couldnât find any Linux alternative to 
| Fences BUT, thanks a youtuber named âgotbletuâ, 
| this problem has been solved because he found a 
| screenlet called âFolder viewâ and thatâs the 
| same thing as Fences but for Linux. Keep in mind 
| that Fences is still way better than Folder view 
| but i not saying that Folder view is horrible 
| either, as a matter a fact itâs pretty good. 
| Lets begin
| Since this is a screenlet you need to install a 
| program called screenlets first which is a 
| widget program, so just get that from Ubuntu 
| software center.


Use KDE Plasma on Gnome with Emerald and Compiz

| The plasma desktop effect of KDE is mouth-
| watering. It not only looks beautiful, but also 
| has a good amount of usability. But, the 
| interface is available(by default) only on the 
| KDE desktop environment.



older View becomes smarter

| After some hacking I have got a nice requested feature for the folder view
| containment. Mime type filter support. I took some screenshots so you can
| have a look yourself.


KDE Components: Folder View

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall; I like the FolderView widget and the idea of Icon-less desktop
| through sets of plasmoids. Kudos to the KDE development team for the
| component - a must have widget in the default collection.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
