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

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.

- 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:

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


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).

These are tremendous improvements! I've always had a gripe with the so-called universal sidebar which I found unusable because:

You had to click to know what was inside of those tabs. The icons were far too small.

Once clicked, you have to twist your head somehow to read the text.

Hey :-)

Is there a plan to create a Fedora package? (I'd do it but I've never created an RPM package as of yet).

I look at the screenshots and like what I see :)

I tried applying the patch to qt-free-3.3.4 and it can still apply wonderfully.

I'll report in again here once I finish building :)

Qt applied and built, kdelibs and kdebase patch is applied and built. I should be doing kdeartwork patch tonight :)

Qt 3.3.4 and KDE (kdelibs and kdebase) 3.3.2 still works with the patch

Stay tuned to see whether kdearwork patch still work :)

For Ark Linux users you can enjoy the patch by upgrading to dockyard-devel :)

 Highlight in Konq

 by jounihat on: Feb 8 2005

Now that the file highlight "bar" is shortened a lot, the highlighting of the file information is even more important. With a high resolution it's totally impossible to conveniently browse the file owners, groups, modification dates and so on.

Actually, making the letters in the same line with the highlighted items bold would be a good idea. That would look nice, and be convenient at the same time. Agree?

'Hunk' is good, only 'reject' is bad.

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.
