2. How to rearrange the position of the application on the dock?

Open ~/.kde/share/apps/kooldock/menu, and manually change the names of the .desktop files there. They appear on the dock in alphabetical order. Restart the dock, and it'll be in order. - Jan 03 2005
You need to do it manually - in folder ~/.kde/share/apps/kooldock/menu are all the .desktop files which appear on the bar. They are sorted alphabetically by name, so simply put 01, 02, 03... infront of each name to make it sort them in the desired way, eg I have "11-kwrite.desktop" as one of my entries. This doesn't effect the name that appears above the icon on the bar, that's changed from within properties. - May 06 2004

Why does it have to be linux related? It's a very nice picture, resounding of quality and power. Adding a tux or kde tag would be tacky and nasty, and destroy the style of the picture entirely.

I could never get it to work in 9.2 either, but it seems to work much better in 10.0, so long as you use Superkaramba version 0.32b, NOT 0.33, as 0.33 is incompatible with KDE 3.2. But urpmi installs 0.32b, so it worked ok in my case. - May 17 2004

I think it's quite a cool picture. And as has been pointed out, Communism is not really evil by intent. It can easily be argued that Capitalism is a more destructive, less caring ideology. Look at where it's getting the world! (read "20% of the world own 80% of it's wealth").

And, I find political statements less offensive in general than moral ones (although the lines sometimes cross) or religious ones (that I don't agree with!) (being Christian myself). But hey, we all have things that rub us up the wrong way. Let's all go get a glass of beer (or water, or whatever), relax, and cool down a bit. - Jun 06 2004

Whatever field this belongs in, I'm glad it's here - thanks! Bible study programs are an increasingly selling application for Windows and Mac OSX, and since starting to use Linux seriously I've had to use an online one whenever I wanted access to the powerful computer functions that flicking through the pages doesn't always allow.

It does appear that this has been written for Christian study, so perhaps it would have been better in Education or other software. But since it doesn't clearly fit into any category, give the author a break - it's an important app, which will have a huge uptake with the increasing use of Linux (remember the Bible is by far the best selling book in the world, and always has been. Even if you don't believe in it). - May 18 2004

I dual boot Windows XP and Mandrake 10.0. I'm studying Engineering at Uni, and there are 2 basic applications for which I still use Windows - Paint (for producing simple diagrams) and Matlab. Well, Matlab can be bought and run on Linux, and now I won't need to use Paint any more...

This has many simple, intuative features. I particularly like the ability to "draw" transparent. Very much filling a space in KDE.

One request is that it would be useful to be able to chose the compression level when saving in .jpg format.

Oh, and nice to see it called "KolourPaint," instead of "KolorPaint!" ;) - May 12 2004

...But the method of rotation is not intuative. Currently dragging right rotates clockwise. This "feels" right if the first click is at the middle back, but anywhere else and it feels wrong. Similarly, it rotates the top forwards if dragged down, which only feels right if first clicked in the bottom half of the screen.

A great improvement would be to make it rotate anti-clockwise when dragged to the right if clicked at the front, and clockwise (like currently) if clicked at the back. Similarly, rotate top-forward if dragged down from the front, and top-back if dragged down from the back.

This quantity of rotation should be scaled dynamically according to the distance of the click from the centre of the screen, so clicking near the centre of the screen would produce a larger rotation for the same drag-length - more accurate rotations would be possible by clicking nearer the edge of the screen. This would create a "grab and drag" type of environment, where you would intuatively know which way the tile you first grabbed would move.

As I said at the start though, the graphics are good, and the rendering is well done. Keep it up! - May 11 2004

This is really good, and works well. However the install has a small problem - I don't know about other distributions, but in Mandrake, the "--global-instal" option should copy the .desktop file to /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/, not $KDEDIR/share/..., as in the install file.

Good work though! Gets my vote. - May 07 2004
