 Some ideas

 
 by madsheytan on: Aug 1 2010
 
Score 50%

Hey. Ive got two ideas:

1st: align the user name text center to the panel. Please do it, not everyone is using big panels, and on 20px it looks really bad. ;)

2nd: What about adding status changer like in Ubuntu? your plasmoid could contact (via dbus or something) other IMs and IRC apps and set the status with single click to all of those apps.

What do you think? :)


Be free to have a choice.

I slightly modified the plasmoid to do just this: align the user name text center to the panel. Tell me if still interested...

I'm interested in these changes, could you submit me a patch? The code is on gitorious.

Hi,

It was my first time using git and gitorious, so it took me a while before I managed to clone your project and merge my changes there:

http://gitorious.org/~jsardid/fast_user_switch/jsardid-fast_user_switch

I guess you can get the patches from there, otherwise let me know...

On the other hand, I would like to add options for logout and shutdown... not sure if you're interested. Anyway, I am kind of busy now, so it can take a while...

Best

Thanks for your patches, I just included them on my repo.

New packages for openSUSE are being built right now.
I also updated the source package here on kde-look.

Talking about the logout/shutdown buttons, I'm a bit skeptical about them. This plasmoid started by mimicking the OSX user switch feature which doesn't have them. I don't think they would be a great addiction for the final user.
This plasmoid has been created to provide a simple way to switch between the X sessions of different users, I would like to keep it as minimal as possible.

Great!!

To have things minimal is a good point, I agree and somehow it's what I'm looking for too, but in a different way. I really don't like to have another extra widget in the panel at the side of fastuserswitch just to do lockscreen and shutdown. So, I was thinking to put them as options in fastuserswitch, for sure not enabled by default.

Very useful plasmoid for me. But I miss the feature to disable lock screen when switching user.
If I switch via Ctrl+Alt+F7-F8 I can switch without entering password every time.
Enabling autologon in KDM logon and disabling lock on screensaver run don't help.
Will be good if plasmoid have the option for switching sessions without locking. Can you add this?

I have do this with modifying sources, here is info for other people:
In sessionwidget.cpp file we can change the string:
manager.lockSwitchVT(vt);
to
manager.switchVT(vt);
and recompile it (make clean; make).

And will be good to see in options in future version:
- Lock or not lock screnn on switch
- Hide "Logout" item
- Hide "Lock screen" item

I tried building as per the instructions, but hit a few snags.

The first one was that I had to install kdelibs5-dev to get the cmake command to work.

Now, the build process fails at the "make" command. I get these errors:


/tmp/fastuserswitch-0.3.1/sessionwidget.cpp:33:40: fatal error: kworkspace/kdisplaymanager.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/plasma_applet_fastuserswitch.dir/sessionwidget.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/plasma_applet_fastuserswitch.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Any one have a solution?

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.
