 No big improvements

Sorry, Folks... You fixed a lot of bugs, but some new bugs were introduced. I'm afraid, that a RC2 will be necessary.

But nevertheless... I already use it daily and I have a lot of fun with it and don't want to go back to KDE 3.1.x.

Konqueror still has some bugs with phpBB+ forums! KNewsTicker crashed several times, too.

 Change icons

You can't change icons of
shortcuts properly. Don't know
if it's only in the SuSE 9.0 RPMs
but it's very annoying.

 KDE3.2 is great..

 
 by poisoned on: Feb 2 2004
 
Score 50%

but there are some things I'm still not very happy about...

1. I recently had a power loss and noticed after logging in again almost every setting in KDE was lost/crippled. I thought it maybe was because KDE was just writing configuration files or something, but it's reproducable, if you turn the power off while in KDE most settings are lost, KWallet looses passwords, Kopete looses all it's accounts and settings...and so on. IMHO this is worse than windows behaviour...

2. Konqueror's really abusive behaviour on FTP sites...i.e. when downloading a directory and selecting auto-skip files because you already have downloaded some files Konqeror logs in again after each and every skipped file...which of course triggers alerts on /every/ ftp server...
another thing is Konqi should check if another thread already is logged in to an FTP site successfully and if another thread want's to access that site but fails to login it waits until the first thread is finished and has logged off so you don't trigger some max-user setting of the user...too often and get blocked =/

except for theese...awsooooooome release =D


Whoa...I did a 'zcat /vmlinuz > /dev/audio' and I think I heard God...

 Needs improvement...

Compared to kde3.1.x there are a lot of great improvements in kde3.2 - but alas likewise some annoyances where former versions had a better behaviour:

I miss an option to put the actions from the submenu "actions" (file context menu) back to top level because that's one click less...

Why can't I create a new folder anymore by right-clicking into a non-active folder?? That was very handy...

I badly miss the context menu entry for editing the file type!
Is there a possibility to add it?
How do I add file types with no specific ending?

The files in "trash" are not handled as normal files anymore (it's now win-like...) - that's very very unhandy!! How to change?
The least they IMHO have to add when keeping this behaviour is a right-click "restore file", a "restore file to..." and a "delete this file from trash".

Now the favicons are saved in /var... WHY? They are kind of MY files/settings so I expect them to be in MY home-directory... In /var are they also saved permanently until I myself delete them willingly? I hope so because that was the very big advantage compared to MSIE's handling of favicons...

When I download several files in KDE 3.1.x the popup information in kicker for that task also gave me the FILENAME of the download - now it just shows me the percentage... What's the goal of KDE 3.2 - uninformationment?

The KDE-Login now does not show the chosen desktop environment anymore, you have to look into the menu - why? That's unhandy too (I often change it and want to see at one glance what the active one is).

Total confusion 1:
When I move a file to a directory and there's already a file of the same name in it the dialog for renaming doesn't give me the name of the file anymore - instead it gives me the directory name. That's very unhandy, especially when I move several files at once: how shall I know which file is meant?
When I move to a normal directory the renamed file is not moved to the directory - it is moved to the upper directory.......
When I move to trash the renamed file is moved to trash...

Total confusion 2:
and when I do a "cd .." in konsole after moving the directory I'm in to trash (from konqueror) - this "cd .." does not bring me to the upper directory of the original place of the deleted folder - no, it goes straight to trash....... You won't tell me that's a feature, will you? unhandy, unhandy, unhandy...

Oh and before I forget: FSViewPart freezes Konqueror (my home folder)...

And kedit does not remeber its window size anymore...

By the way: I'm very happy the terminal-emulator of konqueror now gets the focus again when you open it! And it's very nice that the enlargement of the icons in kicker finally works even when the kicker size is set to 48. And the speed is - wow!

Open the Properites dialog of the file. Right to the Type field, there is a small icon with a wrench on it. This opens the properties of the file type.

and when I do a "cd .." in konsole after moving the directory I'm in to trash (from konqueror) - this "cd .." does not bring me to the upper directory of the original place of the deleted folder - no, it goes straight to trash

That's perfectly normal behaviour under Linux, when you move a directory. The current directory is unlinked from the parent directory and linked to the new directory. In your case the "special directory" ".." is relinked to Trash, so if you do a "cd .." you will go into this directory. You can also get this behaviour with any directory, where you have a shell open and move it to a different directory from a different shell.

Oh and before I forget: FSViewPart freezes Konqueror (my home folder)...

Works perfectly for me.

Thanks a lot, Yaba :) I have found the icon with the wrench :) Guess I was blind because I couldn't believe the entry was gone from context menu...

And also thanks for the short explanation of how linux handels moved directories...

Just now I'm downloading 3.2 - can't wait to install :)

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.
