Macha on Oct 15, One could probably argue that OS X didn’t create a trend as much as rode the wave of a trend something Apple is great at – but either way, that’s how I see the origin of both gnome, kde and MS vista. All I was saying originally was that KDE was the first Linux environment I used which came close to the level of broad support and integration you get from something like Windows, and in some cases it went beyond. Firefox addon for kwallet KDE4 2. I’m not trying to deny the existence of real problems in the tech industry but every time I as a non-tech industry worker hear my friends or see some article about how underpaid tech workers are at 3 to 4 times my salary I have to clench my bowels and try not to have an aneurysm. Desktop environments have been desperately trying to look like a phone interface ever since.

There Castro showcased Qt 1. I would like to see wmaker and gnome-panel 1 kde41. make a come back. It helped a lot that some friendly soul at the NetBD project had written a tutorial how to do exactly that.

Nonetheless it works very well. LoSboccacc on Oct 14, same. Partly that is because, like windows, every Linux distribution will need to support apps that are made for the “wrong” de – no one project manage to reinvent all applications.


Various KDE Styles –

Imagine nowadays spending 2 weeks to get online, reading HOWTOs, having to write shell scripts to dial the ISP and hangup just to get basic functionality.

Instructions on compiling and installing KDE 4. It is best used, before setting up any notifications, as it will overwrite any notification settings with [system default] – sound. To actually know the battery state you have to hover the mouse over it for a couple seconds. I personally haven’t seen any wifi problems in the wild for at least 5 years.

I agree the icon itself needs to be fixed, but having two or more batteries on gnome or kde results in a situation where it is literally impossible to figure out what is going on.

KDE is a as ugly, as you configure it to be ; Really, you can change so many aspects of the UI, that it’s kind of pointless to complain that you don’t like how it looks. If it seems that way, it’s because a given online discussion isn’t a random sample of people’s beliefs.

Yeah it was their response to Vista with dwm and other fancy UI things. KDE is an international technology team that creates free and open source software for desktop and portable computing.

I’m sure KDE works great for the people who have used it for years but they don’t have newcomers complaining about usability or they don’t listen to newcomers complaining about usability.

KDE dialogs for PolicyKit PolicyKit is an application-level toolkit for defining and handling the policy that allows unprivileged processes to speak to privileged processes.


How is KDE 5 a monstrosity? So really, if you’re an Apple user, you have no business even joining discussions like this about non-Apple software or anything that runs on a non-Apple platform. It was extremely unstable, missed so many features, gots ugly and everything new felt only wrong: Practically nothing changed there since half a decade ago when I last used Xfce.

Distance between icon and icon description is too short. Anyway, I use emacs on both platforms and it handles all of this for me, so my dog retired from this game many years ago. X Window SystemRole: I’m talking about apps like gimp, blender, krita – and probably all the office packages and smaller apps like abiword.

K Desktop Environment 1

I only use it, because it works extraordinarily well for me. I still have fond memories of KDE in the kd4.1 years before flashy looks became a must have feature. It took an awfully long time for KDE 3.

And to this day Gnome has the worst “Settings Panel” I’ve seen.


KDE has its own password manager called KWallet. Koshkin on Oct 14, kds4.1 There were two major releases in this series. And of course history has it’s place for all fields of knowledge, but not at the expense of progress, which is the point I’m poorly attempting to make. I briefly toyed with the idea of using a supposedly modern fork of KDE 3 http:
