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).

 Noticed something

 
 by DarkLord on: Oct 25 2004
 
Score 50%

I've been downloading the KDE sources yesterday and will be patching today, but since I'm at work I had another look at the screenshots and noticed something:

The bugfix about too much space beeing marked when selecting a file has the effect that the light blue lines are interrupted where the dark blue marked area would have been before. It can be seen very good in screenshot 2. It looks a bit strange, though I still think it is better than to mark too much space, but I guess it won't be acceptable in KDE HEAD :(

Anyway what I've read at kde-devel sounds pretty good and I hope to see more from you in KDE - you got a pretty good idea what users want it seems.

I did not notice this before because my notebook's tft at home such have a great colour reproduction - so I did not notice the absence of the really light and subtile blue lines.

To me it looks kind of 'broken' because the line starts, then stops and starts again in the size/date columns.

Maybe somebody else (kde/konqueror core developer) will comment - it's not a big thing.

i was thinking about this and i believe that if there is more than one column, the property allColumnsShowFocus is FALSE and the property alternateBackground is set, then the items background are draw only after the second column.

what you think about?

cheers

I fear this time it's me who doesn't really understand. :-/

Do you mean, that the light blue lines should not be there at all except for the first column (name), so that on the other columns (date, size, owner...) every line is white?
Propably not, but I really didn't get it - sorry.

Anyway I think the light blue lines are a good visual help to know what line you are looking at even if the 'name' column is not visible at the moment, so I think it's a great usability feature.

It's just that to me it feels wrong that the line is interrupted inside the 'name' column... I just don't see any benefit and therefor thought it just has not been noticed.
If it is intentional and I just don't see the reason that's ok of course - maybe you could explain again and I will see.

The opposite. in the first column all the lines background is white, and in the other ones the background is alternated.

 how about them then?

 
 by cmf on: Oct 25 2004

not sure if you saw my commentthe other day, but how about looking into the ability to modify the size of icons in Kmenu, this is done in suse 9.x and greatly improves the look of kde when using larger icons elsewhere, it seems to intergrate kmenu back into kde.

Also on the status bar comments made, how about removing the frames within, or around all of the status bar? i saw it in a patch the other week, but can't find it now, it also tidy'ed up the look of konqy in paticular, and would improve the new sidebar even more!

so, any comments on those to almost wishlist ideas?

Maybe the new sidebar gets good enough that the old one can be ditched compeltely... that would be nice, like it has been said on kde-devel. But as it stands now the new one is not completely superiour to the old one - I DO prefer the new one I think.

Maybe having a look at something like opera (which is only a browser but no file manager) gives an idea of what to improve.

-----------------------------

On the bigger KMenu icons: I always hated that in SuSE. Not that such a feature wouldn't be of use for some, but in SuSE it always seemed to make them BIG automatically depending on the resolution / font size (don't know exactly) which is absolutely horrible.
So if it's an option the user can specifically set - ok. But then again, do the KDE developers want Yet another option?

Well it's just an option in an rc file to specify icon size.

and tbh, it's a usability improvement, think about the people with bad eyesight or massive screens, 16x16 just doesn't always cut it.

Plus kmenu looks crappy with tiny icons and 32x32 desktop icons etc...

I'm not really against this feature and can see it's use (tiny screens with huge resolutions, bad eyesight), but just wanted to stress that the way SuSE implemented it is just bad.

I did not really bother to find out what to edit to get icons of usable size on my only SuSE system cause I hardly work at it's desktop.

But you can often see screenshots of systems running 800x600, 1024x768 or even less with those huge icons, which means that Kmenu is actually split in two without beeing very crowded. That's the worst usability I can think of.

That said - if done right (not like SuSE) this will add to usability.

(I don't dislike SuSE, but that specific behaviour is just nasty)

This may have been asked before, but what icons are you using? I like those a lot.

And awesome work on your improvements, they look really great. I can't wait to try them out when I get home!

I'm right now trying to do so. Not that these would be the first debs I make, but something as big as KDE is not exactly what I do everyday for fun ;)

Anyway if everything works as planned I will provide them here. We'll see.. I had a problem with compiling qt-x11-free (debian source) but the kde stuff (vanilla source) seems to be fine, so I'll see about it.

Idon't really know right now whats the difference between debian and the vanilla sources of KDE / QT, so maybe some functionality gets lost... :(

But anyway it will be 3.3.1 and that's a step forward for debian users, isn't it :)

i don't why this happens with you but the line 4588 of the file iconview/qiconview.cpp is wrong. Change repaiintContents with repaintContents and try again.

the patches are right, i have just check them out.
try unpacking the sources and applying the patches again.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
