What about an animated blend/fade between pictures? Currently it just switches to the next which seems a bit too rudimentary, given its otherwise polished style. - May 03 2007

By having 'KDELIBS= ${KDEDIR}/lib' in your Makefile, I got "incompatible library" errors when compiling on my 64 bit system.
I had to change the Makefile by hand to 'KDELIBS= ${KDEDIR}/lib64' for it to work. Please take 64bit systems into account for the next release. - May 17 2005

> A kioslave has no influence about the sorting as far as I know

I haven't thought of this, as I do not know the KDE API (yet). Could be possible. I would try asking on a kdelibs mailing list if this is possible.

> One possibility would be use numbers padded with zeros

I would only use that as a last option. What would IMO be better:
- Place the result numbers after the folder name; you already added them somehow, so I assume you can influence the position.
- Taking the icon idea a step further would be to use icon colors to reflect the number of results; e.g. a red folder icon for more than 50 results, a yellow one for more than 10 and a green one for less than 10. In this case, I think people could live without the sorting, as there are better visual cues.

> color the part of a filename

I don't know this either (see above).

Something else I just realized: Why are the results from /bin/ not inside a folder in the screenshot? What is the criterion that decides whether a file goes into a folder or is displayed directly? - Apr 07 2005

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by arminstraub 178 comments

Some suggestions on what you could do to improve the collapsed folders for results:
- use a different folder icon than the standard one for collapsed folders to avoid confusion between real folders and collapsed folders; with 'real folders' I mean those whose name was matched in the expression, thus making the folder itself a search result
- sort collapsed folders according to their number of hits; I know this conflicts with the name sorting which is active in the screenshot, but on the other hand the name of a collapsed folder is not of importance in this situation, so there is no need to use it for sorting => the results are more important

General suggestion:
- color the part of a filename that matched the expression in a different color; make sure to use a standard KDE color and not a custom one, as it needs to fit with whatever color scheme the user has active - Apr 05 2005

The first image looks great!
I don't think the horizontal bar is too well placed in the second image, but overall it's still a good design. - Mar 07 2005
Improving KDE

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

I really can't stress enough that I like the way that the sidebar was changed to a vertical stack of tabs. Looks so much better than the stack of mini-icons and it is much easier to click on, too.
Also rounded icon-text background is nice.
And not to forget the shading of the selection area.

All in all, great! - Oct 27 2004

I think it's a good start, but the colors are way to strong in terms of saturation for my taste. - Sep 30 2004
Cezanne Folder Icons

Icon Sub-Sets by cjtown 1 comment

Ok, more feedback (of course, these are only opinions):
The arrow colors (hue) don't match that of the rest of the icons. You should try to find better matches.
And the blue of the folders is a bit too intensive (saturation). - Aug 29 2004
Cezanne Actions

Icon Sub-Sets by cjtown 6 comments

The other icons are better IMO.
Maybe you should try changing the brightness of the arrows to be more like that of the paper clip, then it will make a more "polished" and light impression. - Aug 29 2004

Idea: Re-designing 'Recent Files' / URBs

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by sgtpepper 18 comments

I like the rounded boxes in the "recent:/" screenshot. However, the recent entry in the start menu is simply too crowded and confusing IMO. Less is more. You should try cleaning it up a bit. - Aug 07 2004

System Software by MxCl 125 comments

Looking very good. I especially like the colors you have used, because they are very soft and don't use as much saturation as is often the case with other opensource applications.

One thing though: The arrows pointing outwards; I've only been able to identify them after thinking about the shapes for several seconds. You should maybe try to find a better ratio of the baseside of the triangle compared to the maximum length of the arc that the triangle could occupy. IMO the best one is the arrow belonging to the top blue bar on the left side on the outermost circle. - Jul 27 2004

System Software by jrockey 2 comments

This program is really buggy. Even simple things like / characters in filenames get it really confused, as to which files have changed, been deleted and so on.

I recommend using Unison instead which is much more stable. - May 16 2004

I would love to see support for ID3v2 editing in amaroK.
Currently, I use XMMS, but it only has v1 implemented. Using another program just for v2 is annoying, so amaroK would be my new default as soon as this option would be there. - Jan 10 2004

Interesting. is part of the NVidia driver package and is a symlink to the current driver version ('' in my case). It is used for OpenGL accelleration.
I don't know why the rpm needs it, since it doesn't need any 3D. - Mar 11 2003

Is there a way to determine what part of a window is hidden through the KDE API? Then you would 'just' not render in that area. - Feb 22 2003

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by davidsansome 139 comments

actually, arts has to do with sound and I have arts-devel installed. Google just told me that libart is a grafics library and upon installing it, half of my kde apps wouldn't start anymore so I had to get rid of it and reinstall kde.
And by the way, those libraries still didn't let me build kwinacqua, even after running ldconfig and configure again. - Feb 20 2003

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by davidsansome 139 comments

This looks really good!
But as far as I can tell from the screenshots, you are using a horizontal and vertical blur on the shadow effect. That's why the diagonals on the shadow do not appear on the edges. Maybe try using a gaussian blur or so on the effect (well, depending on how much it affects speed).

Thanks anyway! - Feb 20 2003

Aqua Fusion Icon Theme 0.4

Icon Sub-Sets by AquaFusion 80 comments

I do not like this iconset at all, sorry.
It looks like a bit of white added on top of some blue, and not like light reflecting on a glass surface. It would be really white and not just lighter in those parts. Also the reflection on glass usally doesn't fade that much. It has pretty sharp edges. - Jul 26 2002
New style 'Different'

I like your style.
The first screenshot is imo better. In the second, the "split" sliders don't appeal to me too much.

If you could go for a style similiar to this it would be great:
I'm not asking for it to be exactly the same though. - Jul 07 2002
