Description:

Kuartet Desktop v0.4.0.1
Author: Clarence Pearson

UPDATED WEBSITE:
http://kuartetdesktop.sourceforge.net
DEVELOPER BLOG:
http://chillmatic.blogspot.com

The Kuartet Desktop is a completely customizable desktop shell built on top of KDE using Superkaramba and Python.

Requirements:
SuperKaramba 0.38
KDE 3.5.1
Python 2.4
PyQT

Installing:
Download and extract kuartet-0.4.0.1.tar.gz

1. open a terminal and change to the extracted directory
2. copy kuartetlib/ to /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/
3. make directory /usr/share/kuartet or /usr/local/share/kuartet
4. copy the following directories into the directory you just made
- settings/
- themes/
- images/
- configdialogs/
- plugins/

Using Kuartet:
Kuartet Applets reside in the apps/ directory. You can copy this directory anywhere in your home folder. There is an issue with permissions if you try to run the .theme file in a directory where the user does not have write permission.

Open any of the applets in the apps/ directory. If you encounter a problem, open a terminal, change to the apps/ directory, and run superkaramba from there. Post the error message here or email me.

Standard Applets:

The Desktopbar resides at the top of the screen and provides simple Desktop related functions (Log out/Lock Screen, a pager, and Show Desktop).

The Taskbar provides a taskbar and System Tray. Clicking the icons shows/hides the applets.

The Sidebar provides an interface to simple applets. So far, I've included a simple clock, analog clock, run/search input box, a system monitor, and a trash applet.

The Manager provides access to bookmarks (konqueror and firefox bookmark support to come), applications, and recent documents.

Configuring:

To configure Kuartet, right click on any Kuartet applet and click Configure...
You could also run the scripts manually. They reside in configdialogs/.
Config files are saved to ~/.kuartet/settings/.


The following projects were a valuable resource:
SymphonyOS (provided me w/ basic idea of using corners and desktop space)
Cleanbar
Aero AIO
Kroller.sez


If you do have any troubles, ideas, artwork, or just want to chat, don't mind dropping a line at nuskoollabs@yahoo.com.

CALL TO DEVELOPERS:
If you have experience with Superkaramba and/or Python and would like to become a member of the Kuartet Desktop Project, email me at nuskoollabs@yahoo.com. The project has reached a point where it's becoming more difficult for me to maintain a reasonable pace of development by myself and I would appreciate any help. Thanks.




Changelog:

ChangeLog:

0.4.0.1:
- Trash plugin supports drag-n-drop.
- Changed DesktopBar menu to display KMenu. This allows for access to applications if the Manager is not running.
- Made a few class adjustments in kuartetlib.


0.4.0:
- Restructured directory layout.
- Added Sidebar applet and ported older applet as Sidebar plugins.
- Cleaned up Manager's appearance.
- Added DesktopBar and Taskbar applets.
- Other minor fixes that I can't remember.

0.3.1:
kuartetlib:
added pane class. applets can dynamically load 'plugins' now
Manager Applet:
Merged Applications, Recent Docs, Places, and Website into one
Clock and Monitor Applets are inspired by Adrien Vermeulen's Aero AIO.

0.3.0:
Finalized on applets to include:

All Applets:
No longer using KIconLoader to load icons due to some performance issues. Now using findIcon function from kroller.sez. Did a complete rewrite of Theme Config gui so that it no longer depends on PyKDE (and no longer crashes on exit)

Applications.theme:
Now reads the contents of the KMenu instead of using a text file to define menus. Cleaned up the look a bit. Can now traverse up to 4 levels of menus instead of just two.

Places.theme and WebSite.theme:
Added a graphical config tool to add, edit, and remove places.

It would be nice feature, if there was a tool, to set starters for programs (like konqueror) on sidebar per drag&drop.

To add plugins just edit /usr/share/kuartet/settings/sidebarconfig
to look like this plugins=AnalogClock,CpuMem,RunSearch,SimpleClock,Trash

 Great app

I hope this project continues, this app is great for my touch screen laptop.

I think one important feature is missing though: the ability to navigate with the keyboard. There should be some way to access the menus and and move around with the keyboard.

 Love it but. . .

I have one small problem, the top and bottom bars won't fit my screen they seem to be at a much smaller res (800x600 perhaps?) and I can't move them to at least center them, also when I right click the themes and click configure nothing happens?

the configure isn't a big deal I can do this through the text, but the resolution is a problem, I love the theme but I don't want to have to go to a resolution that small (mine is 1280x1024)

I'm running Mandriva Free 2007.0 if that helps any :-)

Great job though!!

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.
