KDE Improvement

KPlanetaryMenu [idea]

Downloads:  1817
Submitted:  Aug 30 2008


This is an idea of a new KMenu widget. I have made it because I have found default KDE4 (Kickoff) menu quite uncomfortable. From my point of view this idea is more efficient for average user.

Main ideas for this project are:
- less mouse movements needed
- big icons, like in MacOS's dockbar
- target: advanced user (because of no programs names and description, there are just icons)

How it works?
After mouse click in KMenu button two menu bars are showing:
- The inner one include your favorite apps (like the "Favoutites" tab in default KMenu) and the Leave Menu.
- The outer one provide access to apps categories [icon with flowing titles alongside]. When you move your cursor under the icon of each category, the next bars are evolving and show apps from chosen category. Of course sometimes there are more than two levels of menu (e.g. like in the "Utilities" category). This bar also includes Help, Run Command, Find buttons etc.

When the number of menu items grow in each level, icons become smaller [of course maximum and minimum icon size should be defined]. If there will be too much icons you can rotate whole menu up and down.

What do you think about it?

P.S. sorry for my English :)

Couple things for consideration:
1) Add a way to search for programs via typing
2) Some apps don't have unique icons, how would this be handled effectively? (So you don't have to sort through a lot of the same icons to figure out which app you want)

 SuperKaramba Theme perhaps?

This looks like something that could be prototyped in SuperKaramba. Would anyone like to help with this project? My Python skills are pretty good, my art... Uh, yeah my Python skills are pretty good.

 Layout and categories

I was looking at it and it seems like a great idea, however I noticed that all the categories are inconsistent in location and size. My recommendation would be to generate a single gear layer at first, and allow the gear to rotate as the mouse hovers on the edges.
After selecting the category, the second ring would appear with the items contained by the category and behave in a similar fashion

The box said \"Requires Windows 95, NT, or better\", so I installed Linux.

 gear menu

Amazing idea.
For me i would prefer it to work somewhat similarly to the regular menu bar setup.
Click app icon, displays inner ring (apps, places, system)
click one of the three, displays next ring (whatever icons would normally be contained within the next sub menu)

i would love to use this instead of a dock or standard panel menu thing. Totally rad

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.
