i havend tried it yet but its a tool i relly need sometimes :)
one question: if i choose ext3/4, will it set the rights automatical? `chown` the stick? this would be cool.

Try it, works here, anyway it's a tiny app and the goal it's just empty a stick, if you need a more complex format o recreate the partition table you should use an more advanced tool like partitionmanager :)

 is it ported to policykit ?

Couple of things I noticed about the application.

I can not get it to format if I start it as a normal user. It only works when started as root. Is there a way you could port it to policykit so that privileged actions can be handled in a clean way that is transparent to the user.

Also I could not figure how to integrate it with the device manager application.

It would be nice if you can make it use the kde's notification system to notify users of job success (or failure)

even when launched as root it was impossible to get it to rename a drive before formatting. That part is grayed out.

Thanks for this app mate it is one more missing link of kde fixed.

Excellent, thank you.
The solid actions path in Kubuntu is:
/usr/share/kde4/apps/solid/actions/

It would be better if you can add a confirmation dialog warning about that you will lose all data when you click "apply format" (for distracted people)
Goodbye.

I forgot to mention that you need to install the package "ibus" in kubuntu, and start the daemon (ibus-daemon -d).
Also I have not yet been able to make it work as user and I have to launch "quickusbformatter" as root.
Goodbye.

It would be fine to add an option to install grub too ;)

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.
