Description:

This is an idea of a home page for Konqueror that could be implemented in an IOslave. It would list the devices in the computer and the peripherals, and could also list some common applications like the browser, the e-mail client or so, allowing you to start them by clicking on its icons. I don't want to immitate other OSes; this is much more inspired in web site designs and tries to be practical and useful. What do you think?

 Suggestions

Now, ignoring all the fud about "This is not teh hax, it looks like that os that I haet!" here's a couple of suggestions:

As pointed out above, the home name does seem like something we already have, and thus might confuse which we obviously don't want. Apart from all the fud, Start does seem like the best suggestion, and I would say that changing it to for example Begin Here seems like such a desperate attempt to just make it not Start. And, please remember, this is not a Start menu, this is a start point for browsing the computer, which is really something I've missed.

To make it output something that is usable, it would probably have to output HTML, but it is I am afraid, not really possible to make this flexible enough simply by using a HTML page, because of the potential for dynamic content in this starting point. Removable disks, network drives, mounted ISO images ( ;) ), you name it.

Just a couple of ideas :)

I know Home is not a good name, but I didn't knew which name to give it. Start is cool.

Implementing this as a KIOSlave would allow it to be dynamically generated, as the HTML would be produced by executable code which can take a look at /etc/fstab to list the proper devices and so. Anyway, HTML would miss some interesting features like right-clicking to mount/umount devices, open K3B to record a CD, format a floppy and so. So we could simply reproduce that design in QT Designer and implement it as a normal interface, and embed it in Konqueror via a KPart or something. These are technical questions; what I wanted to debate here is the idea itself and we'll see the best way to implement it.

There's always XUL - although that would require Gecko.

 nice idea

I really like this. having some kind'a startpoint whould be nice. I think it could be usefull to set konqueror up so that it wont go to /home if you go up one level from /home/user, but to this page. of course you still need to be able to do "/home" manual.

this whould hide the awfull / directory structure, which you dont need anyway. Of course then this page whould need all links to documents, movies, /mnt and other important places (for the normal user!!!!).

 devices:/

Better improve devices:/ instead of programming something new. HTML is defnitely bad for this purpose.

Also, KDE should get some "supermount" functionality... - just the way Mac or Win do...

This is not the same as "devices:/". This would include devices but also other things. I know HTML isn't good for this. It would be better to implement it as a KDE program inside a Konqueror window (via a KPart?), but I don't know how to code it. The file you download is just an example of the idea.

About the "supermount" feature, I think it's more a question for the distributions. Also, devices:/ doesn't support supermount. I use supermount and my DVD and my CD recorder are not listed in "devices:/". Also, devices:/ usually includes the /home directory. For normal usage it's useless to have access to /home. Instead, you should prefer to access to your ~ directory. That would also hide some of the complexity for novice users.

I really wonder why you try to imitate Windows. Others try to imitiate Apple.

Perhaps it is true: Open Source is no real innovative software.

show that it can be done.

Looks like a Windows rip-off. No, KDE needs a genuine style that maximizes usability for the user.

 We did it..

Thank you for the great idea. We did it on Turkix. This is now one of the cool features of Turkix
I will try to make a port for Mandrake.. Source codes will be available in CVS, you'll be able to reach them from Turkix web site.

And thenew kioslave is not a frozen web page output. It changes regarding your devices added or removed. It's in full interaction with your system as in devices:/ kioslaves. Plus, whether you device is mounted or not, it mounts it and shows you the output. I've named it kiostart.

Looks cool! I'm going to download Turkix to take a look at it. How can I access your CVS server? I'd like to get the source code of your start:/ kioslave. I speak spanish and I could translate it.

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.
