Flexible Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Jinidog 80 comments

It's also present in the default task manager plasmoid, but maybye you could fix it...

When you use custom sorting (draggable icons), you reorder them and they are as you wish. But when you launch any activator, it immediatelly jumps to the end, what results in launchers moving around constantly. If you reorder launchers, they should stay there I think.

Anyway, thanks for a great job :) - Mar 30 2011
Veromix - volume control / soundmenu

Plasma 4 Extensions by nik3nt3 269 comments

@ Agree - There are some technical reasons why this is difficult (you can have a now playing control but not Stream)
-> Just remove the margin/separator/whatever, and it should look as it was one panel I think.

@ From my point of view they should be themable, but in KDE/Plasma themes there are no such icons
-> In my opinion you could just take the graphics from the current iconset (not from plasma theme, but from the system iconset). Or create some black and white graphics, which will match most of themes. If I were you, I would use buttons from Oxygen iconset. They're quite neutral, but visible on every background. But of course it's your decision.

@ Could you please explain: Why? And what would be the criteria?
-> Well, that's why: http://wstaw.org/m/2011/01/09/screen1.png . Mabye they're not *completely* invisible, but for sure it could be better. Just 1px border around them would do the job perfectly.

@ Usually Players report the artist- and trackname via pulseaudio (Amarok/"Phonon based players" are an exception). With your suggestion artist/album/title would then be shown twice - Thats the reason why I decided to not show the artist/album/title info on the nowplaying pane. In consequence albumart centered was the best solution to that...
-> Hmm. But you probably are able to read them to the variable? Then just split check it and remove repetitions. It seems to be workaroundable. If not, it's not a critical feature. But it's worth trying :)

Nevertheless, Veromix is a piece of great job. Thanks for developing it anyway! :) - Jan 09 2011
Veromix - volume control / soundmenu

Well, I like Veromix very much, it's wonderful :)

Integration with now playing is cool, but why is there so much free space? I think it should be used.

I've made a quick mockup (please forgive me its awful quailty, Pinta is unusable so far :/). It presents the layout Veromix should have in my opinion.
- Controls under the program's name and icon, not above it. What is not included in the mockup, but I also suggest, is presenting stream name, volume slider and controls in one panel, without any separation. It will look much clearer then.
- Control buttons (play/pause, next, previous) shouldn't be so "light". On certain album arts play/pause button may be completely invisible. I think buttons should be bigger and have a border.
- Why don't move album art to the left side and present artist, album and title also?

Mockup: http://wstaw.org/m/2011/01/09/mockup.png

If you followed my suggestions, Veromix would really rock :D - Jan 09 2011

It looks quite nice :)

But:
- I don't like these stripes in the menu's background. It should also have a border in my opinion.

- Lastest QtCurve SVN versions introduce RGBA transparency. How about making windows and menus a bit transculent? - Aug 22 2010

In my opinion filetype icon should be less transparent. Now it's hard to differ an audio file from the cover image file. - Jul 25 2010

RGBA support in Oxygen is just what I wanted! I'll keep my fingers crossed for this theme and I hope to see it in KDE 4.6. - Jul 23 2010

Are you sure you are using QtCurve version 1.5.1? Older version don't support transparency. - Jul 15 2010

Thanks for reply. I admit that it might have been too much transparent...

Version 0.2 with 80% opacity is out :) How do you find it now? - Jul 14 2010

It might look good with Aurorae. But I won't install, I don't like Bespin at all. - Apr 08 2010
