Clean KDE Toolbars

Toolbars are meant to allow the user to quickly find the most used functions of an application. Due to low icon count, they can find the right icon within a split second.

KDE toolbars currently look like they are jampacked with as many icons as possible. This makes these toolbars effectively useless, because they have the same problem as the dropdown menus have: You need to work your brain and spend time to find the icon you are looking for.

Crammed toolbars are missing their goal: quick access to a few of the most used functions of an application.

I always configure my KDE to have useful toolbars, like you can see on the screenshot. I hope that KDE 4 will have useful toolbars by default.

See also the bugreport 67207 on https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67207

Please vote for this KDE-Look entry and the bugreport if you agree on cleaning up the KDE toolbars!

This has been already being hit upon by the usability group.
How you've set yours up is exactly how I have mine :)


my only gripe about the tool bar is my location one doesn't always stay there ;)

This is not the right place for such discussion. http://bugs.kde.org is the right place to submit such requests for improvements.

Yes your Toolbar looks good!

You are very true that the toolbar is too much crammed with icons, hence finding the right toolbutton is a trouble!

Same with KMenu, Too Many menus confuses the eye :(

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
