I have tried to make my menu/kicker idea useable, subtle and expandable.

The idea came from those trading card games, you make your deck depending on how you work and each card in your deck is part of your overall strategy.

I have only really showed 2 'cards' here, the Information center and the taskbar, but you can have as many as you like with whatever application/function you want on them.

there are further explanations on the screen shots.

THIS IS JUST AN IDEA: the download is just the first screenshot.

There is a chance that this might become a reality. A source forge project has been started by hyrcan at http://sourceforge.net/projects/slicker

If you know any developers that could help please get them to go there and get involved.

I am working on an interactive flash version of the idea so you can play about with how it works. WARNING, it will be quite a rough impression of the hopefully finished thing works.


I have been listening...

1) I have removed the taskbar card and replaced it with transparent taskbar at the top of the screen

2) I have moved the kmenu button underneath the quick launch buttons on the main menu card (which is all in one by the way, just twice the height of the others), so now the kmenu is in the bottom left hand corner, just where it should be

3) I renamed the taskbar card 'Mail Center' but that really means nothing I just wanted a quick title for it.

 What about usability

Yeah this looks great, like the other +/- 200 comments say... but the question is... What about usabilty?

The menus takes space, and with a single one, this space consumed isn't much, but with menus in all the borders, it's like have a smaller monitor!Have you got any idea for this BIG problem ??
It might be solved if you can do menus that always are shown and other that not, and this could be changed by the user in a context menu with a right-clic in the menu, or something like that. I'd like to see a screenshot with this feature, with applications running (I know this proyect isn't done, I talk about an "emulation" of what it will be ;)).

I'd like a reponse please.

PD: Appologies for my bad english. A spanish KDE-Gentoo-user.

 shots + solution

about that problem: i was thinkig the same, but didn't manage to post this yet :)
...so i think the solution would be if the cards and all the other elements, would have the ability to fade (alpha blending WILL be avaliable in KDE future, until then you could ask mosfet for help), so ALL the desktop space would be available, and these applets would be transparent (on top)
this way you would have both - the workspace in its full size and these applets running and be seen.
another idea would be to bind a key-combination (like ALT+F5 or something) to hide/show these applets - that would increase the usability even more :)

about the screenshot:
there is a topic in gentoo forum considering cards... a user Tommorow made an application for cards and on the forum there are also available some screenshots and a source of his project at the curent state :)

here's the link: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=24636&highlight=

there is a sourceforge project for it at http://sourceforge.net/projects/slicker no downloads yet but I have the Pre Alpha version and although there is very little functionality at the moment it's still looking like it will be released in the not too distant future

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.
