| 4th 2010. 


3 KDE Add-ons Worth Trying

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the remarkable features of KDE 4 is 
| the extensibility. Developers or even 
| regular users can contribute to the rich 
| collection of artwork, software, widgets, 
| and visual improvements. Ever so often, I 
| look around for rather random add-ons that 
| make my desktop experience more pleasant or 
| occasionally even serve a meaningful 
| purpose. They range from full applications 
| to very basic widgets.

| Then I tore out the hard-coded default 
| layout in plasma-desktop and re-wrote it 
| using a Javascript run on first start due 
| to being installed into share/apps/plasma-
| desktop/init/. This new script makes a 
| loadLayout call to load the default panel 
| template, and so I made such a template and 
| set that to be installed as well. This 
| dropped a few dozen lines of C++ and turned 
| them into about half as many lines of 
| Javascript.

Five Improvements for KDE 4.5 (Part 2)

,----[ Quote ]
| In my opinion, the KDE4 desktop is the most
| revolutionary piece of Linux software since
| the Linux kernel itself, and I appreciate how
| it strives to challenge old desktop paradigms
| and introduce new ones.

| 4.) Easier Theme Installation
| Another issue I had with KDE (even with the
| KDE3.x series) is that themes are so easy to
| install in GNOME, but a pain in KDE. While
| installing new themes is still easiest to do
| in GNOME (download, drag, and drop) KDE SC 4.4
| has made strides in this area, finally. It can
| only get better from here.
| [...]
| So, there you have it. Those are
| features/changes I wished for during previous
| KDE releases that have all materialized into
| reality. With such progress, itâs clear that
| KDE is moving at the speed of light, and I
| predict KDE SC 4.5 will be the height of the
| KDE4 series. What am I hoping for in that
| release? Stay tuned next week to find out, and
| be ready to share your ideas so we can help
| make KDE the best it can be.
