These are the ones I've checked at first glance. Almost all of them
Konqueror related, And none of the Konqueror bugs have been addressed.
Leave a this for starters.
Not here - it's not the fastest site, but not slow enough to be a problem.
This is a wish, not a bug.
This refers to the same site as the first bug you mention. I see no problem
here. It loads quickly enough, and moving to a sub-page was almost
I don't use x86_64 so I can't comment, except to say that on my 686 everything
works as expected.
The first of the two panels you mention is currently reporting a problem, but
the second panel is scrolling in a space approximately equal to the "Special
Offer" panel. No problem here.
Comment 10 states that KDE4 works differently and suggests a solution for you.
The last on complains about the lack of capability to stretch panels across
2 monitors. And this lack, in my desktop environment, represents a real
useabiltiy bug. Serious enough for me to move to xfce which does this
So did you every try the solution suggested? If so, why was it not suitable?
You did not file any report to that effect.
As for konqueror vs firefox. Look firefox is not a kde app. Its mime
automatically link to gtk apps. Currently and more and more tentatively I
use kde. I do not want to use gtk apps to read pdf or view multimedia or
evolution and I do not want to have to manually reconfigure the gazillion
or so mime types to open kde apps. If I want to use gtk apps I would use a
gtk based windows manager. I use kde and a core application is very badly
Not here, it isn't.
Look I need to say this; plasmoids are a very very nice idea. They
great and make the desktop look cool. The things is the desktop is next to
useless. It gets covered up as soon as you use your computer to do anything
at all. Unless of course the way you use your computer is to simply stare
at your cool desktop. Heck I even have a package out there of a plasmoid.
But being the end all and be all of windows management is a colossal
mistake. Panels are the only app that makes the desktop constantly useful.
Applets (ok plasmoids now) on panels when designed correctly places
functionality, accessibility and information immediately available with a
single click or quick glance regardless of what else is going on (except
for full screen games :) ).
I can't understand what you are talking about. There is no need for any
plasmoid to be any bigger than you choose. The ones I use take up a small
proportion of my desktop, proportional, IMO, to the use I have for them.
People use browsers, word processors, games, email client, im clients
The first app that gets opened makes the desktop disappear. If the apps
don't work what good is the desktop other than to look pretty but dumb. I
do not need my desktop or apps to be a huge blonde moment (male or female
take your pick). I need to get the things done. If kde developers want to
jerk around they're bored and get things half finished and then say brand
new here it is. This whole process has been one the least professional
processes I have been through in computing in a very long time. (Fedora /
KDE people notwithstanding in this tirade they as usual do a superb job)
then ignore their user base, well then there will be defection. Which by
the way I am seriously considering and trust me when I say this is painful
for me since I have been a loyal and passionate kde user for years as Rex
can attest. But enough is enough. If I wanted to install super karamba I
would have installed super karamb a. Now KDE has pushed it down my throat
in the form of plasmoids the very least they could do is have the thing
work the way it should.
It is noticeable that the list of bugs you quote were all filed by you, and in
most cases, in fact all but the last one, get little or no support from
anyone else. Your comments here are rude. Developers have limited time and
will always give their attention to the bug reports that seem to affect most
people. I find your self-admitted tirade unreasonable.
4.3 is a personal milestone for me. After a tirade like this one, to
fair I will wait till 4.4 and leave without a whisper (I'm sure some are
saying yea!!! :) ) . KDE either works the way it should or I will have to
That is your choice.
New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
