Description Jens Petersen 2005-06-16 06:21:21 UTC
Without starting any new flames, I was wondering if our default
kde desktop can be improved a bit? :)

Some suggestions:
1) Put konsole at the top of the root menu: I find it really useful
   having Terminal at the top of the gnome root menu.
2) make the panel height smaller like the gnome one is now: eg the
   rhn systray looks strange compared to the other icons on a
   new desktop
3) optionally consider having a thin top panel and thin botton panel like gnome's

Perhaps there are other things that could be improved too? :)

I confess I'm not a KDE user and just use KDE occasionally for testing.
But the above things strike me every time I use our KDE.

GNOME 2.10 will not have a terminal option on the desktop context menu. There is
an extras package that would add this though. Rest of the enhancements suggested
seem sane

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2007-06-04 02:42:28 UTC
Our KDE Desktop seems to have improved quite a lot since this was filed.

Probably this bug can be closed now?

*shrug*, sure (suggestions 1 and 2 are implemented).

We certainly could use the input, perhaps we could interest you in attending a
KDE SIG irc meeting or two?  :)

Good enough for now, looking forward to more suggestions...
