 Plea for help

Would anyone be interested in posting the details of turning off all eye candy? I love KDE but am running it on a pentium 120Mhz with 48Mb RAM. Sorry, but as I do volunteer work, it's all I can afford right now. If anyone would like to donate a better system to a worthy cause (I find homes for lost animals and use linux with mysql as a registration system), we can make arrangements.

I know this is possibly the wrong forum for this, but I do like to come in here and look and dream of one day being able to turn on some of the candied features.

I really appreciate all of your work and am not a whiner as accused of being several posts back.

Thanks

 Kpersonalizer?

Have you tried kpersonalizer?
It was introduced with kde 2.2, it's usually run after you launch kde for the first time.(for example first time you start kde after you've updated to 2.2) But you can also run it later.
It has Eye Candy/Speed tab where you can turn off all kind of needless Eye Candy.

Thank you. I wasn't even aware of that option. Someone else helps with the maintenance of the machine. I've noticed now a great increase in performance.

Thank you!

I'm glad that it runs faster for you now, still I must say that with 48Mb Ram, I would not dare to run KDE.
That's the beauty o Linux, you can choose what's more adequate for you.

You got WindowMaker, Blackbox, why not give them a chance.

Can anyone tell me how to give the desktop icons a totally different font than other items, so that the icon fonts are, say, verdana, but the other items at such as menus and task/toolbars have a different one?

Thanks,

Wasn't sure where to post this kind of stuff. Sorry

"right-click" on desktop then select "Configure Desktop", then choose Appearance-tab and there's desktop icons' settings.

 App. startup Speed!

IMHO,
the main problem of KDE is the applications startup time (not the application responsivenes).
I know that this is not a problem of KDE itself. It's a C++/Compiler problem (Ok, objprelink is a good choice, but it is not a multiplataform solution yet).
I think that KDE needs a dedicated group of hard coders that focus to solve this C++/Compiler problem (because for the end users this looks as a KDE problem.....)
I'm using KDE plus Win4Linux as my primary desktop, and it is not possible that on Windows (win4linux) the explorer starts 3 time faster than konqueror.


Regards and thanks to the KDE team!
Juan Ignacio.

 better g++

agree wholeheartedly...

M$ understood a long time ago that users subjectively preferred a word processor launching himself in less than a second (even if it's only the splash screen :-)) no matter how sluggish it is afterwards, than a blazing fast thing that appears only 5 seconds after the initial click (median startup time for konqui on my system).

It's the same for GNOME : menus are generaly sluggish, but apps run in a snap.

The main problem is probably that g++ is actually C code, so it needs both excellent C and C++ programmers... that's hardly possible, I reckon :-(

Sorry about the newbie questions, but could someone please tell me what M$ means? I come across this so much these days.

Thanks in advance.

 Speed

Gotta have speed! Performance is my measurement of a good program. It seems some crappily written programs mess up the whole system.

Speed should be top priority, and it shouldn't be released until it's lightning fast!

KDE 2.2.2 is responsive, but application launch times aren't good enough!

If this is a g++ problem, why can't you compile the binaries with a better compiler?

 Wrong blame

Because the developers don't compiled the binaries!

The binaries are compiled by the _packagers_. KDE provides only source. If you doubt me, go on OpenProjects #kde and ask yourself.

KDE needs to be very simple, straightforward. Make it easy for a Windows user to adapt to the linux environment.

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.
