Re: KDE/Plasma Screenshots

[Offtopic rant]didn't we have a whole thread about not using imageshack as an example anymore?  I thought the general consensus was to stop using IS as a hoster.  Is this wrong? hmm [/rant]

thread is here

Please start using another pic hosting site. Seriously, is it necessary to use a site that uses pop-ups. As well, since the pop-up launches when you click to maximize the image, technically you initiated a new window, and so it isn't caught by pop-up blocker.

There are a million other free image hosting sites out there.

To name a few:
omploader.org
picoodle.com
xs.to

Re: KDE/Plasma Screenshots

Thanks for posting the alternatives - I've always hated imageshack for that reason!

Anyway, here are my three activities:

What do you mean by "activities"? And what's the "system test fun" thing?

Re: KDE/Plasma Screenshots

click on kidney - zoom out - add activity. It's a whole new desktop experience. Each activity has its own cube, etc. And those are my three activities, system (displays system related stuff), test (for stuff I don't know about yet) and fun for, well, useless stuff.

Beg your pardon, but if that's a cashew I'm the King of Blighty wink

BTW, how do all get your different plasmoids to work? They're not from AUR but off kde-look.org, right?

Re: KDE/Plasma Screenshots

Expand your mind, solarwind. Not only does it look pretty but all of a sudden your on screen widget real estate can be doubled, trebled, quadrupled, sky's the limit smile

Haha. Useful.

Tell me, does it lag for you when you zoom out and work with it? I have an NVIDIA 8800 GT and it lags like crazy but NVIDIA has always been bad with KDE.

Re: KDE/Plasma Screenshots

Give it a year and you won't know how you survived without it wink

Nope, no lag for me on

CPU:    AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2600+
GPU:    nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)

and 1GB RAM. I've got the 170 or 173 driver.

Yeah, nvidia is lacking support for Linux for the high end cards. I made a thread on this a little while ago

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=115916

177763 views - discussed and referenced on forums all over the world. That thread got nvidia to finally improve their drivers.

"Silicon". If you don't want the glass reflections, use "Perfection", it's the same thing minus reflections.

Man, I'm still not getting such crisp fonts like you guys have. I don't know what's wrong. sad

Sandsmark, did you change your fonts somehow or is it all default in your screenshot? How about you Solarwind? Default fonts as well?

Do you guys have any Font/DPI settings in your xorg.conf? How about antialiasing in the KDE appearance settings? Is it on system default or have you tweaked it?


Coming closer and closer to the ultimate goal: replacing boring old Windows XP desktop with shiny new Arch KDE 4 desktop. ^^
