QuickAccess for KDE SC 4.5+

Minimum required   KDE 4.x

Alas for me this is a dead horse...
I like it a lot but do not have the
skills to keep it alive...

Next maintenance fork of the QuickAccess widget, patched for use with KDE SC 4.5+

First of all: I have no - I repeat NO - skills in coding. I even do not understand what I did here.
I just looked into the sources for the trash widget before and after the change and tried to apply the same to the quickaccess widget. Astonishingly it works. But use at your own risk and please don't blame me for errors or expect help from me, I cannot, sorry.

I altered the files quickaccess.cpp and quickaccess.h but left the original files as quickacces.h.orig and quickaccess.cpp.orig so whoever wants to can have a look at the differences.

So what IS the difference?
Since KDE SC 4.5 the max. size of the panel can be set via systemsettings. When increasing the panel height the icons will adjust to that maximum size. With this patch the quickaccess widget is also able to do so. If you use the original non-patched 0.8.1 version with KDE SC 4.5 and increase the panel height the quickaccess icon will stay at max. size 32x32, ignoring systemsettings.

Look at the screenshot: Without the patch the quickaccess folders in the panel would have the size of the trash and the dashboard icon (both are fixed for KDE SC 4.6).

The original maintenance fork 0.8.1 can be found here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?action=content&content=101968


- added ability to follow the maximum panel icon size
- added German translation
- removed all references to dolphin sorting

 Features can be added!!

It has lot of scope for improvement. The quick access plasmoid can have funtion like delete, copy or move from the plasmoid itself so that it prevents opening dolphin to delete a single fils or move it.

Already it provides feature like extract but it of less use than those of copy and delete.

If you can do it feel free to do it. I don't have the skills to.

Want Debian Sid with spices? Get aptosid at aptosid.com - it simply works :)

I've also done a check install to make a Deb package if you need it.

 Port to KDE Frameworks 5

I LOVE QuickAccess. I really hope that it gets ported to qt5, Plasma2 and QML2. That way I'll be able to keep using it next year and beyond as KDE shifts over to KDE Frameworks 5 and Wayland. I'll be really sad to see it go.

 A version with some additions

Hi janet, I have been using an relative old but stable patched version which adds some features to QuickAccess.

I did upload a copy (with a build patch) to this site, but know I think it would be better if you update your version (because it is more popular, and more people will use it) to include this modification (and then I can delete the other one).

QuickAccess 0.8.3

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.
