Device Manager

Description:

This applet is discontinued!! Since I'm now working directly on the KDE's Device Notifier I won't add any new feature to this one. I'll fix serious bugs, though.


This is an applet that lets you mount, umount, open your devices.
It has a capacity bar to show the free space, and avoids the ugly window that pops up when you open a device with more than one action in the standard Device Notifier.
It can show all the devices instead of the removable ones only and can do the automount.

I hope you like it!

WARNING! With KDE previous than 4.3 and dark plasma themes you won't be able to read the labels cause the font is dark too.

 Looks Good

I'll give this a try. The stock plasmoid certainly did show non-removable devices in the past.

Did, in fact build OK.

I get a black background and no volume names (visible) for the non-removable devices.

could you please post a screenshot?
this is very strange, because the only thing i had to do in order to see the not removable devices was to remove an if statement that selected the removable ones, and the plasmoid shouldn't know which are removable and which are not.
by the way, what version of kde do you use? i'm using kde trunk and i took the code of the device notifier from that version.

Its all because black background and black font.

I don't know if that white area should be under devices names.

I think that "choose font color" option could solve this problem and will be enough. ^^

 Great Idea !

This is with the Kubuntu 9.04/KDE 4.2

This is working fine execpt the "scrolling" is not working.

If there are more devices or actions than the window can hold there is a scrollbar.

But only the scrollbar is moving not the devices/actions.

 Idea

 
 by hash87 on: Jun 1 2009
 
Score 50%

At the moment icons for the avaiable actions are the same size as the plugged devices. My idea is to make them smaller (50% of normal size?) and also justified to the right side. This way much space would be saved if there is lots of actions and it would be easier to notice what is an action and what is a device (e.g. if there is the same icon for action and device :P)

My second idea is to make the devices automount the same way as in this plasmoid:

yes, i know i have to make visible what is a device and what's an action, but i hurried to release :).
as for the automount, i'll add an option, but it won't be the default

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.
