Emblems Hack

   0.2  

KDE Improvement

Score 80%
Emblems Hack
zoom


Link:  http://
Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  748
Submitted:  Jan 25 2007
Updated:  Jan 29 2007

Description:

This is a simple hack to kdelibs-3.5.5 (and 3.5.6) that adds basic emblem support, like in GNOME. (It doesn't use the same format, though.)

To set an emblem, right-click a file, select Actions, Emblems, and Select Emblem. You can also delete an emblem by choosing Delete Emblem in the same menu. Please note that for symbolic links, you need to set the emblem on the file the link is pointing to, and not the symbolic link.

Currently, emblems are not drawn on thumbnail previews. I'll attempt to fix this in a later version.

Requirements:
- KDE 3.5.5 or 3.5.6
- Extended Attribute support (xattrs must be supported by the kernel and the current filesystem - add the user_xattr option to fstab if necessary)

Installation:
1. Apply the kdelibs-3.5.5-emblem-0.1 patch to the kdelibs source directory and recompile kdelibs.
2. Copy all files in the bin/ directory of the emblems tarball to /usr/local/bin (or another directory in PATH).
3. Copy all files in the servicemenus/ directory of the emblems tarball to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/ or the system-wide service menus directory.

Suggestions and comments are welcome.




Changelog:

0.2: Added service menus and scripts for selecting emblems.
0.1: First public release.

a gui would be very usefull for that, tough...

I agree with that, KDE could use something like emblems. But a cool idea is to make some emblems visible only when user hovers mouse cursor over a particular icon. I would like to see something like that in KDE4:)


Cheers,

You have to recompile kdelibs with the patch. There's a howto guide on compiling KDE here:

Also, to apply the patch, run this command in the kdelibs source directory:

patch -p1 </path/to/52193-kdelibs-3.5.5-emblem-0.1.patch

Bah, forgot to add an include for ksvgiconinterface.h

Add this below the include for attr/xattr.h in kdelibs-3.5.6/kio/kio/kfileitem.cpp:

#ifdef HAVE_LIBART
#include <ksvgiconengine.h>
#endif

 Saving the World!

I dreamt about this feature for so long...

It's especially more straightforward for folder icons. With emblems, you are not limited to icons folder_music, folder_images... You can put a real icon folder and add any icon you want as an emblem.

Thank you very much.

Please contact KDE developers to include it in KDE 4. I think they already talked about that, so they are not reluctant to the idea. I think they will be pleased that feature is already coded and will integrate it quickly.

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
