Description:

CONTENTS
1. Changed the plastik theme to draw a lighter line as listview branch.
2. Rounded selection in iconview (konqueror/kdesktop)*
3. A modern looking rubberband (gnome/xp semi-transparent style).*
4. Modified dialogs when in iconlist mode to highlight item on mouse over (mozilla-firefox).
5. Added a new konqueror sidebar look.
Idea from http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=17049
6. Now sidebar is saved per profile (bug 58580)
7. Fixed bug 88964 (Highlighting of files in Detailed List View does not
correspond to the area of activation).

Obs.: All patches are tested in kde-3.3.1/qt-x11-free-3.3.3 official
sources. I can't garantee that they will work in other kde versions.

* some patches are modified versions from the patches found in
http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=107624741505943&w=2

GOOD NEWS
I started a thread in kde-devel mailing list to discuss the insertion of the patches in next kde release.
See http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-devel&m=109863377620287&w=2
Some of the improvements are already in KDE CVS.
I contacted trolltech and they are analyzing the patches.

TIPS
- To improve the performance of the rubberband try to enable the option
"RenderAccel" in your XF86Config file.
(sinve version 0.5.2 the rubberband performance is improved)
- To enable the new konqueror sidebar look add the line "SidebarStyle=1" in the file $HOME/.kde/share/config/konqsidebartng.rc in the group that has the same name of the profile you want to change:
For example:
[webbrowsing]
SidebarStyle=1

If anyone has more ideas (original ideas) to add to this patches, tell me and perhaps i will try to implement them.




Changelog:

v1.0.0: (2004-Nov-28)
* fixed bug with rubberband in iconview mode.
* added install instructions.

v0.5.5: (2004-Oct-31)
* fixed bug when new rubberband effect is disabled.

v0.5.4: (2004-Oct-31)
* added rubberband color cache (improve rubberband performance a little more). I can't do incremental patch cause i'm using the KDE CVS version now. The only file that was modified is kdelibs/kdefx/kstyle.cpp

v0.5.3: (2004-Oct-31)
* improved rubberband performance in iconview (now only the modified area is draw).
* fixed bug when drawing rubberband and right mouse button is clicked.
* added incremental patch. For those who are using version 0.5.2 just apply the patches found in dir patches-0.5.2.
Note: Only use the patches found in dir patches-0.5.3 if you are using version 0.5.2. Any doubt how to use this mail me.
* added TODO file. If you found any bug not in TODO mail me, and i will try to fix.

v0.5.2: (2004-Oct-26)
* fixed error in drawing the item background in konqueror detailed view mode when that is a background image set. You just need to recompile kdebase/konqueror/listview.

v0.5.1: (2004-Oct-26)
* fixed compile error in kdebase/konqueror/listview.

v0.5.0: (2004-Oct-25)
* a lot of cleanup and refactoring.
* fix bug in konqueror detailed view mode that made the alternate background lines draw incorrect (thanks to DarkLord to point this out).
* now no app will be affected by the patch for bug 88964.
* modified qt patches to kde ones so is more easy to get they accepted by kde developers.
* removed kdepim patch (no more necessary).

Hello, I tried this patch, it's very good but the binaries I have used (slackware from linuxpackages.net) provides a kdepim package : what improvments have been added to Kdepim ?


Bonjour :)

Has this been accepted by the KDE dev team yet? I would really like to see this in KDE 3.4.
Keep up the good work!

>added new konqueror sidebar look.

Is this a new mode for Kde like IDEAL mode(kate, konqueror, ...)?

Or it this just a konqueror patch?

using source rpms should not be so easy if you want to use rpm to build them:
eg.: rpm -ba

if you want to use this method, you should install the rpm sources and go to directory were the specs are located (i believe /usr/src/rpm/SPECS) and change the specs to use the patches, if you know how to do. copy the patches to /usr/src/rpm/SOURCES and rebuild the rpms

this is not as easy as i explained but if you want to try.

i would say you to download the sources from kde.org and recompile them. it's easiest them use source rpms.
just decompress the sources downloaded from kde.org, go to directory created and patch -p0 < name_of_the_package_you_are_patching-3.3.1.diff
and them recompile the package,

sorry if i didn't explain very well.

cheers

 QToolBox

 
 by lucher on: Oct 25 2004
 
Score 50%

I like the way of using QToolBox for the Konqu sidebar, BUT:

(!!!!)

I'd like to have multiple 'tools' opened. For example I would like to have the sidebar media player opened the whole time and just switch between home/root folder view or services. Sometimes I want to have the mediaplayer and the services tool widgets permanently opened and just want to switch between root and home folder view.

I didn't try your patch, but is this possible? (Was at least basically possible before)

Thanks.

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.
