Description:

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.




Changelog:

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.

It's incredible! But it looks like a totally new desktop environmemnt. I think it should be more "KDEish". For instance, everything should be bigger, because bigger is better (check http://developer.kde.org/documentation/design/ui/fittslaw.html)

Start programming!

Personally, I think everyone keeps refering to the asktog site and it is total bull. Everyone does not have the same sentiments as he does. I think this idea is awesome. I like the look that it puts forth. Although, for those people that like icons that cover the entire screen and use up plenty of space, there should be an alternative ( such as the old look or an option to resize everything like kicker is now). I like this one best out of all the ones I have seen so far.

Really cool. Reminds me of the desktop in a version of solaris I used briefly.

Someone commented that this is different from the Kicker.
They are right: This is slicKer!

This is lovely. it is a revolutionary concept.

But just a small suggestion. Can the K button alone not be made a card? My idea is like a maybe a right triangular K button (A bit curved on the hypoteneuse convexing towards the edge of the screen or jagged?) expanding to both rows of the card, and quick luanch items appearing in both the rows.

(This way the K is on
the edge nobody can miss it :)

When u click the K button the card along with he quick lauch shoots up but the K remains at the left bottom.

Why I am asking this is I have this habit of clicking K to launch the menu and clicking K again to close it, in case i suddenly change my mind. In ur pic the logout button appears where the k would normally be after the card is selected :).Call me lazy but a card does nullify this advantage of a menu.

i also think a bigger K button would be more helpful. That way even ppl switching from windows will have a easier time.("Hey there is that big K sticking out against the smaller buttons, it has to be the start button"):)

What do u think ppl?

Valid point, now that you mention it. I do it as well: click to open the menu, "wait, I'm not going there..." and click to close it again.

that the menu would close when you moved the cursor away from it, but having said that it wouldn't hurt to have a close button at the bottom of the menu card.

 sticky cards :)

Let the close button will appear soemwhere in the left corner where the K button is.

Have an option of a sticky card, If the sticky option is removed, the card disappears when the mouse is moved off (kind of like the taskbar thingummy in windows) that way everybody is happy.

Just a suggestion make the K bigger definitely like a logo kind of thing (on two rows) and let the quick launch items appear in two rows. This will distinguish this as a special K card.

Now if the cards can be translucent when not selected this would make them convinient to stay on top sort of thing, even if u are running a window fullscreen. Or u can have a special card key to make them appear even when ur running a window fullscreen.

These are just suggestions. I spent sometime trying to visualise the practical implications of using cards and his is what i came up with. Hope these are useful.

really nice idea.

i aint got no complaints its original thats what i like about it. and very nice looking it infact reminds me a bit of suns gui. But very different, still.

[rant -- ignore not intended as flame bait or whatever just me getting fed up of a few windows users i know]

why do windows users expect linux to conform to windows ?

the further away linux gui's goes away from windows look and feel and establish their own look and feel the happier ill be.

It will show hey linux aint a windows clone. Linux has nothing to do with windows. but hey thats my opinion.

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.
