Device Notifier support for HIDs

Device Notifier support for HIDs

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  22
Submitted:  Jun 13 2009
Updated:  Jun 13 2009


Mock-up that depicts an expanded KDE4 Device Notifier that has support for notifying the user of insertion/ejection of Human Interface Devices(HIDs), particularly mice.

Note that this is purely a brainstorm/mock-up and I don't claim to have the technical capacity to code such a thing, but I believe it would be useful.

The mouse icon is from the "Hydroxygen" iconset(licensed under GNU-GPL: www.creativecommons.org/license/cc-gpl)

I have no idea why you would like to get a notification when you insert a mouse.
1) you probably did it yourself
2) What other actions than actually using the mouse would you want to do with this notification

I need a little explanation

It's convenient and informative(though optional, as far as pop-up notifications).

It's informative in the sense that you have an easily-accessible list/description of plugged-in devices, basically(if you need to know, for instance, the exact port(address) that's being used by a wireless mouse.

To sum things up, it would be a convenient way of knowing if/how your system acknowledges a device and the ability to change w/e options are associated with that device from a single, convenient location(tray).

I disagree. If you want a list of plugged in devices it should not be in the device notifier.

Besides, the device notifier doesn't go away by itself, which I would demand from something telling me that I plugged in a mouse.

Why would like the know the address of the mouse? That is a totally useless piece of information.

The address of the mouse was just an example. A more practical piece of information would be the battery level, for one.

As far as pop-up notifications, they would be entirely optional and have configurable timeouts--the typical usage would involve hovering over the tray icon to get an overview.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
