I really like kaffeine (use it every day) and I think it's a stellar app.

I've never really liked the cofeebean logo all that much... now I see a newer logo that is a realistic coffee bean. The texture of hte bean makes it look like like... a waste product of sorts (no offense).

I made this logo, and I am going to apply it as my kaffeine default movie (that shows up after playing the movies)

Altough I don't find "looks old fashioned" to be a valid reason to cahnge soemthing that already works, I think this is a good idea, as I hate tree browsers for usability (the +/- thing, etc)

It would be cool if this was implemented in the KDE libraries as something that would easily ported from KTreelist.

I think it woul dneed more design decisions as well. What about multiple layers of trees? Maybe just stick to the tree paradigm for that...

I'm rambling. Good mock-up. It'd be nice to see implemented, but then again it doesn't come close to that OS X has. - Mar 22 2005

Why would we make the control center application so dramatically different from how every other application in KDE looks? This would be an awesome looking replacement -- but why is the SVG background and arches needed?

Personally I wouldn't want to use this new Control center unless a majority of my KDE applications looked this way (and then I wouldn't use those KDE applications :).

I can see that it does it solve a usability problem by adding that kiconview to what would normally show a KDE system overview (which is basically useless anyway) / current configuration widget(right?) on the right side.

I would think that something similar to this, but met KDE's normal look / feel, would be a better replacement.

I will definitely follow this project (if anything materializes) with great intrest. - Feb 23 2004

I'm now figuring out how kdevelop's system needs me to tar up my code so that I can archive this release. It's basically a working SNES9x front-end as of now. not much more. Still, it is fun to see in action :)

The one cool thing about having it as a KDE application (that i've found), is that with KWin you can toggle fullscreen on/off. that's something you (I) couldn't do before with snes9x. nifty. - Feb 02 2004
That would be fantastic!

All I really want is for fce-ultra to be able to scale it's surface like how Snes9X does.

If the author doesn't want to, that's also fine. It'd stil be nice :)

He doesn't seem to take feature requests. So if you could pass this along, it'd be great - Feb 01 2004
Menu/toolbar won't be hard at all. it seems like the way i'm going to go. I can always disable it or ditch it later. (KDE's framework is excellent for this)

How do you want to "embed" the windows of the different emulators into your mainwindow?
I'm using qxembed.

Will this work for every emulator?
basically, yes. some emulators don't want to be resized by the WM (fce-ultra) and i've been thinking of ways to tricking them to resize on command. I was thinking of saving the gamestate, exiting, then starting w/ the game state, but have fce-ultra run maximized. It would also be a solution to changing keybindings w/o emu restart in mid game, etc. Like how snes9x windows syncs network games.

How are you going to manage the parameter-stuff?
command-line options? I'm going to make intuitive (yes, intuitive) dialogs using qt designer. I run the emulator w/ qProcess
Will you create dynamic dialogs which input-fields are read from the XML-file you mentioned?
I'm beginning to think now that I want each "plugin" to be a set of XML files (interface, setting, etc)

I'm in the process of making one.

Think Snes9x's interface (menubar, game in window) -- but it will be completely universal. Use Visualboyadvance / fceultra / snes9x / mame / probably DOSEmu / whatever.
I long for the universal front end the way I want it (game-in-emulator-window) for KDE.

I like it, it's really nice to look at IMO.

I would really like your backgrounds to have less text on them as they do. I understand you wanting to put the full text from the scripture, but it's a little distracting as a normal day-to-day desktop. I think a simple title like "His Eye is on the Sparrow [Matthew 10:29-31]" (written in anything but that cursive font) would be fantastic.

It's not that I don't want to be exposed to the scripture, It's quite the opposite. But what if someone put a soliloquy of Shakespeare on their background? Or the Preamble to the U.S Constitution. It'd be just as annoying as full scripture.

Keep uo the good work. It's always nice to see how much you are improving and fun to read every "offended" kde-looker posting slader on these :) - Jan 26 2004

heh. that "extension app" just hacks the login manager's EXE to change images. hardly a solution for theming :) - Nov 24 2003
First of all, This is a great idea. I hadn't seen GDM (for gnome 2.0) until I started searching through fedora reviews. This has the potential to look VERY professional, Not necessarily eye-candy (like the screenshot url below)

Secondly, this is not at all like Windows XP. The only way this login is similar is the background image is very similar to "bliss" -- there are tons of these imitating backgrounds, y'all need to calm down.

Thirdly -- It might not be too difficult to modify KDM to display something like the screenshot below instead of a normal QDialog. The hard part would be making it compatible with GDM themes (drool).

This is definitely something the KDE devs should look into, I'll see if my coding skills are good enough to try and make something like the fedora login but don't expect any miracles
