Thank you very much :) It's a really old thing that i had, frankly, forgotten i'd done... Looking at it now, i remember doing it, just playing around, and having pretty much that same reaction - it was super simple, but something about it just seemed to work, so thought others might like it as well :) - Jan 08 2019

The plasmoid seems a little bit rough - it spawns at the wrong size (you have to resize it a bit so that the text box fits), and the bottom of it once resized ends up being empty space. It might be worth requesting a specific size, though i cannot remember how to do that of course - #plasma on freenode will surely help with that one :) Thanks for sharing, though, it is now sitting on my desktop looking all atheistish - nicely done :) - Jul 20 2009

That is *exactly* the right answer, well done! ;) i would suggest dropping by the plasma IRC channel on Freenode and talk your options over with the people there - as i understand it, you should find it extremely easy to implement krunner support into this :) - Feb 13 2008
Well, if that is to happen, you'd likely want to do something about the name (or the featureset) as, unless i'm much mistaken, this isn't actually a mini-KRunner... :) You know the searchy-contexty-monster-launcher thing in KDE4 :) - Feb 11 2008

Oh no, it is much simpler than that - KDE 4 will have an entirely new and fresh look, and the thing is, the look is not solidified yet (as recent discussions and work on the look of the Oxygen style shows), because such interesting considerations as usability and accessibility are being taken... So it's simply an attempt at making sure that KDE 4 will /have/ a fresh, new look when it comes out ;)

There's also the small problem of language barrier - the "public relations" person in the oxygen team suffers greatly from not quite grasping some of the intricacies of the English language, and as such has managed to spark controversy and arguments simply by making a comment where he essentially agrees with everybody, but still manages to get it said in a way so that he comes across as being in opposition to everybody else (witness discussions on the kde core devel mailing list in the month of August).

Hope this has made the situation a little more clear :) - Sep 24 2007

Well, the trick with the menu system in KDE 4 is that it'll be all plasmaish - because of the simplicity of TastyMenu, it ought to be relatively simple to implement the features from Tasty into a neat, little package of a Plasmoid :) It'll need re-implementation, but... things should be much simpler wrt that in KDE 4 :) - Aug 23 2007

You do realise that amarok does drag'n'drop quite nicely, right? ;) You can load those streams just fine by dragging the item into your current playlist. However, you did spike a thought in my feeble mind - it would be quite a funky thing to be able to load a subfolder of for example Radio Streams (say... Cool Streams) as a playlist. It'd then load each sub-item of that folder and suddenly you would have basically what you asked for :) (now to see wether it's actually anything resembling a good idea in practice ;) ) - Oct 10 2006

You, Mr Genious, have obviously not realised that this category is used internally by Amarok as a source for installing context browser themes from through the GNHS powered theme fetcher. So, please, put this in the Other category, as it is NOT a context browser theme. (also, apachelogger is a part of the Amarok team, so he really knows what he's talking about.

That is not entirely true - Tenor, Solid, Plasma and Phonon are backend technologies, to be used by developers for fancy things. That they're good marketing names has to do with how Apple does things, i suspect: Aqua(Extreme), Core(Audio/Image) and so on are all marketing-friendly names, and that's not a bad thing.

The names, however, are moving over to a more interesting take on the K word - not doing the silly thing of taking random word and sticking a K into it somewhere obnoxious. Like you said yourself, Okular and Amarok are two applications that've gone away from the capitalisation thing, but Krita is still a k-word, it is just a proper k-word, meaning drawing chalk in Swedish. Kopete is the same, and has been that way for a long time.

This said, i think some things would do well to keep their KSomething names - like the large collections of applications, KWebDev and KOffice come to mind. Maybe of course KWebDev needs a bit of work, but since it's a collection of applications, it makes sense (to me) to have them chained together like that.

All of the above is because of how the K is a large part of KDE's corporate identity - we need the K to identify outselves! As a last random mind-blurp type note - how is this any different than all the WinSomethings and iSomethings floating around? - Aug 08 2006

Why are you blurring everything out? This is a mockup, you are simply providing random song names and such, noone will sue you for that (not even the RIAA or whomever). Please reconsider reuploading your work without the blur, because as it is now, you are greatly limiting the use of the mockup by blurring out vital information.

That said, do try and join the #amarok channel on freenode to discuss the idea. And please note - we have had people suggest this for a VERY long time, without being able to do it Just Right(TM), which is something we really want (to do it right, that is). - Jul 11 2006

Quite simple - Amarok's core functionality depends greatly on metadata, and most videos simply do not support meta data well enough for that sort of use :) Sure, Quicktime and Theora (by way of the ogg container with oggtag) both do, but most videos are either mpeg or avi files, neither of which to my knowledge support any kind of tagging.

On top of that, we would really rather do one thing Right(TM) (you know, the old UNIX way of doing things) and simply make the best immersive music file player out there, in stead of a mediocre DE ;)
