News: ONLY A NEWS UPDATE
========================================
If you are using or used or care about KBFX , We are sure, you are wondering about the progress KBFX. We haven't forgotten you or the project. We will add some most requested features to KBFX
and 100's of bug fixes reported on our bug tracker and release KBFX for KDE3 as soon as we can,

For KDE4 we will use the Raptor-menu Menu engine, the interface nookie has designed this time is really a NextGen, unbeatable and breath taking. so stay tuned for that. so we will fist finish raptor menu engine (http://www.raptor-menu.org) then move on to KBFX for KDE4.

We are also doing PlexyDesk, I'll add a project entry after I make this posting . PlexyDesk is a
modular desktop render. PlexyDesk will introduce a new and an effective way to use your desktop, yet keep the classic metaphor intact.visit us at http://www.plexydesk.org or #plexydesk at
freenode , we would like to hear from you

Thank you.



===========================================================
KBFX is an alternative to the classical K-Menu button and it's menu.
It improves the user experience by enabling the user to set a bigger (and thus more visible) start button and by finally replacing the Win95-like K-Menu.
But if you still want the old menu, because you're used to it, it is still available as an option in KBFX.
We recommend, however, that you give the Spinx bar a try.
===========================================================



===========================================================
Hi all,
KBFX now has been moved to KDE Extragear.
Expect a lot more new features in our next release for KDE3.
In the meantime we are coding KBFX for KDE4 too, so we are a bit busy now.
But that DOES NOT mean that we won't support you and the KDE3 version.
Very soon we will implement the keyboard shortcuts support in KBFX....
Just stay tuned ;)

Love you all ;) :-*

"KBFX Silk" (0.4.9.3.1)
===========================================================

Hello everyone,

After a long silence from us now we are happy to announce that finally the
stable release of KBFX is ready.
We made a lot of changes to the KBFX Configurator and to KBFX Menu itself.
However we were not able to implement everything you proposed and everything we
wanted. So some of the features (see the TODO list in the source files)
in "KBFX Silk" (0.4.9.3.1) are still not ready. We are sure that they will
present in the next stable release which will be due just after KDE4 is
released. The menu itself, however, is fully functional.

Thanks to all of you who gave us ideas and who tested the prerelease versions of
KBFX.

When you download and install this version you may report the found bugs at
http://bugs.kbfx.net or in an email to phobosk(at)mail.kbfx.net

We wait for your opinion and reports.

Take a look at the renewed sections "How To?" of kbfx.net:
http://www.kbfx.net/staticpages/index.php?page=20060224123135907

We advise all the KBFX theme authors to have a look at the article "How to
create themes for 0.4.9.3" at http://www.kbfx.net/staticpages/index.php?page=howto0493
in order to transform their themes from the old format to the new one ;)
And look at all the documents in the doc folder of the sources.
For additional help on install see here:
http://websvn.kde.org/branches/extragear/kde3/addons/kbfx/doc/INSTALL?view=markup

All the best from your KBFX Team. :)

P.S. Soon we will release the highest rated on Kde-Look KBFX themes as a package containing 20 themes. We just wait for their authors to transform them into the new theme specs.

Note: Things to be considered before installing "KBFX Silk"
===========================================================

1.) To configure and compile "KBFX Silk" you need Cmake >= 2.4.2 from http://www.cmake.org

2.) To configure, compile and install "KBFX Silk" simply run ./build.sh

3.) Before the install of "KBFX Silk", please unload and uninstall any previous version of KBFX.

4.) After the install of "KBFX Silk" please relogin KDE.

5.) If you need file searching capabilities in KBFX, please download and install Strigi
from http://strigi.sf.net

6.) To enable Strigi support in KBFX, please pass "--strigi" OR "-s" option to build.sh
i.e: ./build.sh --strigi

2.) User's Guide http://www.kbfx.net/siraj/KBFXslik.pdf
3.) Strigi Install Guide http://www.kbfx.net/siraj/strigi.pdf




************WARNINIG************

The Skin Spec for KBFX Silk has undergone radical changes!
Many of the themes on kde-look.org might not work!
We encourage theme authors to update their skins or make new ones.
For help on that see here:
http://www.kbfx.net/staticpages/index.php?page=howto0493

Thank you.

 Unusable

 
 by meneerdik on: Aug 18 2006
 
Score 50%

I like the idea of KBFX, and I would love to use it and test how it works out for me.

Unfortunately, KBFX is not very usable for me, because the most basic feature of KBFX does not work properly: Showing the menu.

In the KBFX 0.4.9 stable releases, clicking the menu button would only show the menu for a split second. Just a flash, and the menu is gone again. Sometimes, the menu stayed visible, but most of the time it did not.

In the latest CVS, this problem is a lot less severe: Most of the time, the menu pops up and stays visible. But when you release the mouse too quickly, the menu is not shown. There seems to be a delay of about half a second between pressing the mouse button and the menu popping up. When you release the mouse within this half-second delay, the menu does not appear. This starts to get irritating real quick, and it makes me grab the old KMenu again.

Using KDE 3.5.3 on Gentoo Linux.

 gives me headaches

- I cannot read the font in the kbfx configuration dialogs. It's too small.

- The menu itself is too small. There's that little brick taking up just about a quarter of the screen's height. And only four apps at the same time are shown in the right pane. What's that good for? Scrolling, scrolling, scrolling - instead of taking advantage of the screen's height and show as much apps as possible (if the user wants it).

- When I increase the font size the menu isn't wide enough to display the group names on the left with the whole name - and it is not possible to resize the width.

- A thing I really hate about kbfx: I have set my kicker to user defined size 72. I add kbfx applet to kicker - kicker is resized to somewhat 32. How do the programmers of kbfx dare to take the right to resize my kicker as a *default* setting?

Sorry @janet,
The behavior of the kicker resizing now has been changed (in the 0.4.9.2rc3 release - just see the configuration on page "Start Button").
And as for the small fonts/configapp dialog - well this will change in 0.4.9.5 - the user will have total control over sizes. Untill then don't forget that there are users whose screen resolution is 800x600 so a bigger dialog box is not an option for them... Anyway we will try to optimize the size of the dialogs in the next release...
Sorry again and thank you for your criticism, 'cause we need a lot of it in order to make KBFX to conform to all your expectations. :) ;)

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
