 Best I've Seen Yet!

 by karlandtanya on: Apr 25 2004

Feature Requests:
1. Sort Icons--They all seem to sort asciibetically by name. I'd like to be able to specify how they show up.
2. Move KoolDock bar (I want to put it on the top of the desktop instead of the bottom)
3. Interpretation of .desktop files: If I drag an icon representing a .desktop file to the bar, I still must explicitly specify the icon image and executable command I want to use. The .desktop file knows this. It would be convenient if KoolDock interpreted these files.

That said, KoolDock is by far the best implementation of an scaling icon bar I've seen!

While I ask for more convenience features, I am *very* grateful that I don't have to edit .xml files to get my icons to appear!

Keep up the good work; you're doing great!

Right hand side of the bar seems to get munged on my desktop. I see a couple of blank rectangles instead of my desktop and the bar.

Under the bar, the icons appear, but are sort of covered

Wouah !!! Great stuff ! This dock is wonderful ! The configuration is very easy, I just tried it and I think I will keep it !!!
I have the same requests as the other users... But I also noticed two problems on fonts. The first is that the text is displayed behind the windows (maybe I made a configuration mistake ?). In addition the shadows are not very pretty, I can see mutiple colored pixels on them (I saw the same on your screenshots).
I'm waiting the next release impatiently !! Keep up this great work !

You need to do it manually - in folder ~/.kde/share/apps/kooldock/menu are all the .desktop files which appear on the bar. They are sorted alphabetically by name, so simply put 01, 02, 03... infront of each name to make it sort them in the desired way, eg I have "11-kwrite.desktop" as one of my entries. This doesn't effect the name that appears above the icon on the bar, that's changed from within properties.

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.
