Improved Preview Operation

This patch improves the way in which Konqueror load preview icons.
If the window is scrolled then the files that are in-view will have there icons generated next.
If the mouse moves over an icon then that icon will be generated next.

Konqueror can also be configured so that only those icons in view will be loaded by setting a new option 'Only load previews for items in view' under Konqueror's previews and Meta-data setting this option reduces memory and system overhead.

The screen shot shows the effect of scrolling to the end of a folder waiting for the icons to be rendered and then scrolling up a bit.
As you can see the top icons that were previously in view have been loaded before the icons before them listwise.

Patches are against kdelibs-3.4.1 and kdebase-3.4.1.

If you would like this feature included in future KDE releases see this bug http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87319


remade the patches, tested with gentoo.

you only need to make install kdelibs/kio and kdebase/libkonq

preview 'only' in view is switched on by default, to change the behaviour so that items out of view are also loaded,
[MENU] Settings/Configure KDE
Previews & Meta Data, and deselect the option 'Only load preview for items in view'
You need to refresh the view for the change to take effect.


0.3 fixed another compile error, 'it's too hot today'
0.2 Corrected bug in kdelibs patch.


updated for kde 3.4.1

You must install kdelibs before kdebase.

(kde 3.4.1- 0.4 patch)

The bug is still new. I'll be somewhat disappointed if this doesn't make it into KDE 3.5 ;)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
