KDE4 Brainstorm

fit to empty space button
zoom

Submitted:  Dec 21 2005

Description:

the idea is to have a button which would maximize a window so that it fits the entire unused space that there is on the screen.

\"normal\" maximizing covers the whole screen which is not always very comfortable.

maximizing \"by hand\" can of course get you the same effect but having it under one button - so it seems to me - would be much more useful.

i believe gimp is a great example of an app for which such a button could be extremely comfortable.

please, tell my what you think.




Changelog:

just moved to kde4 brainstorm from kde improvement. thought it'd be more suitable.

 Other than GIMP?

 
 by logixoul on: Feb 14 2006

GIMP needs this because it's poorly designed. Can you point out a single KDE program which would benefit from this? For example Krita's tools can be docked inside the window.

well, the first thing that came to my mind was ksirc but i'm quite sure there are more.
as to the poor design of gimp, you are very right but it doesn't change the fact lots of people use it.
besides, i feel krita gives you a different set of possibilities. and well, not everyone wants to install the entire koffice just to have krita. personally, i hate this modularity thing of kde's :/

I have to admit that I don't know about Ksirc, as I don't use IRC. What does Ksirc use multiple windows for?
Krita gives you the opportunity to edit images and create images. GIMP gives you the same opportunity. Only the face behind which it's hidden is different. There's no reason for this difference IMHO. Eventually, Krita and GIMP will merge.
You don't need the whole KOffice for Krita. You can install just the KOffice libs - no need for KPresenter etc.
Modularity is a good programming practice, because:

  1. It eases code maintenance

  2. It simplifies and speeds up keeping your machine up to date

  3. It saves harddisk space and RAM


Do you still hate it?

hehe, ok, "hate" was perhaps to strong :)
i just don't like it :)
imho, a solution similar to gentoo's meta-packages is MUCH more comfortable than the kde's modularity approach.
meta-packages give you the easy updatability and choice both in one. i know it's not quite doable with debs or rpms - but apt-things are useful enough to make automatic updates a piece of cake.

As far as I understand, you're comparing incomparable things. Metapackages do nothing but drag other packages in. Modularity is separating common functionality from specific functionality, so it can be reused instead of duplicated. Am I wrong?

perhaps you're too advanced for me and thinking about something else. what i, being quite a lamer, understand by modularity is that by using simply apt-things in various distros you can't actually install krita, but only the entire koffice. same to kmail withot the entire knetwork, kwallet without kpim and so on. this is what i don't like.
of course, i could download the source and compile it - but that's not what debs, rpms and so on have been invented for, is it?

In SUSE Linux 10.0 I can install a KOffice package for illustration apps (Krita, Karbon14) only without installing for example the one for text only. Can't you do that in other distros? I don't remember...

As a side note, I bet I'm more of a lamer than you are.

hmm, i see. well, i'm using linnexos which is a polish version of pclinexos (based on mandriva) and don't have this possibility :( as far as i can remember, i've had the same problem on kubuntu, kanotix (though not sure of the latter) and somewhere else, too but i can't remember now.

oh, you're just too modest :)

 OS X HIG Behavior

This mockup is the behavior of windows in OS X. All resizeable OS X applications utilize this approach. Nice option.

 Similar solution

In Kubuntu Dapper flight 5, that it very close to implemented (I am not aware of others), all you have to do is middle click the maximize button and poof, it is stretch to meet the top and bottom of the screen. Middle click again, and it goes back. Left click causes the same thing in a horizontal fashion. Like the other; it toggles also.

I love this feature of some other window managers and is really convenient when using GIMP.

FVWM-crystal for example has this behaviour (with [alt] + maximize, if i remember correctly) and it is quite nice.

there are countless examples other than gimp, like these:

- an instant messenger contact list window
- 'top' in a terminal window
- some other application, that constantly monitors something

in all these cases i do not want specific windows to be covered.

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
