Menu Bars in Dolphin (KDE)

Filed under
KDE

ppenz.blogspot: The menu bar has always been a kind of "holy grail" of user interface elements for me. Until I tried those applications I've been a strong opponent of those "menu bar violations". But after working a while with both approaches it seems that ribbons work very well.

New KWin Shadows

Filed under
KDE

blog.martin-graesslin.com: One of the features which got killed in the process of porting KWin’s Compositor to OpenGL ES was the Shadow effect. For some time already the Shadow effect was not on the level we expect from our components.

Common user interface mistakes in KDE applications, part 4: Being GNOME friendly

Filed under
KDE
Software

agateau.wordpress: This time I want to talk about being GNOME friendly. While that may sound odd for a KDE developer to think about GNOME, assuming we want our applications to reach the largest possible audience, we should try to ensure GNOME users get a pleasurable experience.

KDE
Software

jeffhoogland.blogspot: Something I have brought up on a number of occasions when talking about software is that people are very much resistant to change. This is true of both people that use closed source software and open source software.

Towards a declarative Plasma: Containments and tablets

Filed under
KDE

notmart.org: In the KDE Plasma Workspace 4.6 there was for the first time the possibility to write Plasmoids completely with a mix of the QML declarative language and Javascript, part of QtQUICK, this makes development dramatically faster (and with dramatically I mean that in around 2 days, c++ plasmoids developed since 4.0 can been rewritten from scratch)

KDE 4.6.1 Almost Perfect

Filed under
KDE

ostatic.com: When KDE 4 was released, I hated it. It seemed a lot of my favorite customizations had changed, moved, or been removed. It was heavy and a resource hog. It didn't seem to work real well. I think KDE 4 is finally maturing into a stable and usable interface.

Design Decisions #1

Filed under
KDE
Software
Ubuntu

zrchrn.blogspot: I want to thank who ever it was that made the decision to NOT force KDE to develop a composited desktop with a fall-back to a totally different looking un-compositied desktop in the event the computer has a driver failure/poor videocard.

On switching to KDE/Xfce

Filed under
KDE
Software

jonmasters.org: So call me old fashioned, but I don’t like the direction being taken by modern “User Experience” design. To me, GNOME Shell provides an experience that I am supposed to love, but it doesn’t empower me to make changes.
