KDE Kleanup *Update*

KDE Kleanup *Update*

By theobroma
Published: Aug 23 2005

We have starting the process of removing what is considered outdated artwork from KDE. It is imperative that we hear from a majority on this. The first proposed changes will be to what are considered outdated background wallpaper tiles.

It is important to note that this DOES NOT pertain to all background tiles used throughout KDE. This pertains only to the "desktop background wallpaper tiles".

This is the list of background wallpaper tiles that are being considered for removal.

All Good People

Black Marble

Chicken Songs




No Ones Laughing


Planning And Probing

Time for Lunch

Totally New Product

Won Ton Soup

There are two polls currently running at KDE-Artists.org located here. KDE Kleanup

The data collected from these polls will be used to move to the next step in implementing these changes. Thank you we look forward to counting your vote.

*UPDATE* dannya logged into svn on Monday and removed all of the tiles on the list as well as many wallpapers that he determined should go. If you created any of the artwork that was moved it was said that he would contact you. If you have not been contacted yet and are curious about the reasoning behind this. You can find him on kde-look here dannya Thank you all for your input. ;)

 KDE 4 must be clean

I think it's ok to remove all tiles for the 3.5 release because for KDE 4 everything has to be clean and new.
The Plasma developers say it'll be "an exciting desktop computing experience that provides a safe harbor and a consistent experience for users through: breathtaking beauty, usability and creativity and innovation." So I think let the developers remove all old stuff so that they can port a clean desktop to Qt4 and build an exciting KDE4.

I was playing Patience/klondike today and noticed it relies on tiles for some of its backgrounds. Many bitmaps do lot look to hot for it. Im assuming other apps use these tiles also. Maybe they should get placed in a separate tiles folder within the background folder instead of just trashing them.

Am I the only one who thought the tiles were almost the only really nice wallpapers that KDE offered? I've always used the tiles, the work especially well with the colorisation settings.

Oh well. I'm sure you guys will impress me none the less!

Guys, Give us a good and a clean feel of Mac style icons, look and stability with a fresh code. I can find many stunning screenshots there out on the web, but cannot get that stuff for everybody. KDE is good, stable and better, and one thing that it lacks is Eye Candy view which will have to be by default. So get the stuff with a well redesigned stuff like the stuff of Enlightenment version 17.

Get rid of all the Windoze-like bloat, separate the web browsing from the file management parts in Konq, make the file management part spatial by default, add a built-in CD/DVD burner to it, make a OS9 like kcontrol and remove the OSX like kcontrol implementation, remove the arrows from the menu applets (kmenu, sessions menu, prefs menu, etc) and make the icon in the window list applet dinamically show the icon of the active app.

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.
