KDE-based front-end for YUM (Mockup)

KDE-based front-end for YUM (Mockup)

Downloads:  588
Submitted:  Jun 27 2006

Description:

(First of all, sorry for my english.)

I use Fedora and yum. My desktop is KDE. I want to use a KDE-based app for managing yum.

Fedora has several apps for managing yum in a graphical way, but most of them are Gnome-based (pirut, yumex) and kyum seems to be left. So, I've decided to start my own yum front-end, using PyQt.

This is the first (quick and really ugly) mockup. Feel free to comment, suggest, criticize and create your own mockups. If you vote it bad, please tell me why. If you want to involve yourself in this crazy project, contact me (christiang020 AT yahoo DOT es).

Remember, this is just a mockup. No even one line of code exist at the moment.

(Please, somebody fix this description. English is not my native languaje.)




Changelog:

* Version 0.1 (2006-06-27)
- First and ugly mockup created with Kommander and Kspread.

kyum is complex for newbies. And its CVS has no changes in last 5 month.

My idea is to develop an easy-to-use and novice-oriented front-end for yum. Surely I'll take some ideas from kyum, but I want to develop a brand new app.

because kyum is the most sucking application I have ever seen. Its dependency management is like a hell filled with shit. It uninstalled my RPM package on FC6...i dont know how and why and that lead me to reinstallation of the FC6. My personal recommendation is never use kyum. There are better things available (GTK apps) like Yumex or Gnome-Yum.


Owning computers nowadays is a bit like having a pet rabbit,
It needs to be fed with right stuff or it gets sick.

Try Firefox [http://www.mozilla.com/firefox] --- the right stuff!

The only GUI I have liked is Synaptic (APT). I use Yum from command line but a Synaptic like GUI for KDE would be very nice. I started a project but too many other demands. KYum is nice but lacks some of the features I really like about Synaptic. So, my 2c worth is use Synaptic as a guide.

Have fun! :)

I think this looks very nice: http://www.suse.de/~sh/YaST2-Package-Manager/

But you said you want a userfriendly frontend, not a professional one.

 Nice idea

I agree that a simple approach would be very nice - your mockup looks simple and clean, and eyspecially for users which now about package names but do not care for the rest it would be perfect.

So start, I would like to test and comment.

As a side note: adept, the kubuntu/apt will have a new GUI in version 2.2 (in development yet). The interesting part is that the new GUI was designed together with designers and people who now how a interface look like for normal users. So you probably want to contact this guy what to do.
Also, when you need artist support or any other support in case of KDE programming, check http://open-collab.org/

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
