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.

 Taskbar placement.

Hmm... not too sure about the new taskbar placement. After all, quite a few people probably run KDE with the menus in 'Mac' mode.

Hence for the sake of compatibility it would probably be best to leave the top of the screen 'as-is'.

That said, it's still a top visualisation.

it was on a card at the bottom at first but quite a few people didn't like it so I moved it up to the top.

The only other option is to have it at the bottom again right along the base of the desktop, but for me that would be too windoze.

what if the taskbar at the top moved down for the mac style top menu? or just having it so it is dragable to top, bottom, left or right?

 TaskBar

I think that the taskbar on a card would be better and smarter than placing it on a top bar, I think that It will bie more functional, like the thask selector button in MacOS or the task selector applet of GNOME.
Btw probably in the end is better to let the user choose the type of taskbar(card or top bar) to use!

 Beyond really good

Very innovative, I think this would be nice for KDE4.

This is require some clever coding I'm sure but it would be worth it overall since it would.

1) make KDE more task oriented
2) provide a truely personal desktop

Another benefit with this design is that we become more GUI designwise independent of M$.

Now tell me who to throw money at to get this designed and implemented in the KDE framework...

 Wow, innovation!

This is a truly innovative concept.. and it didn't come from Xerox, Apple, MS or even IBM!

Who says you have to have billions of dollars in order to innovate?

Now if only someone would step forward and code it. I'll provide all of the beta testing that you would ever need, and as much money as I could spare to keep the caffeine flowing :-)

Let me know if you are interested (Mosfet, are you listening?) and I'll help as much as I can.

Regards,
Steven

 2 things

(1) We need new content section on kdelook.org for innovative things. Frank?

(2) It looks like we have no coders available for innovative uploads, so this kind of uploads don't make any sense. I hope I'm worng. Is it so? Mosfet? qwertz? Anyone else?

 throwing ideas

 
 by gripenk on: Nov 23 2002

It is realllllllly innovative!

I love the idea of trading card system. And I would like to throw some ideas on this card system.

1. Any card can contain other cards, thus it can make the system much more flexible. eg: a "kicker card" contains a "k-menu card", a "taskbar card", an "applet-card", just like a normal kde kicker.
2. Everything can become a card. eg: Macintosh-style menus can be a card, modules in KControl Centre can become cards.

It seems that there are many people would like the idea to be implemented. I think maybe anyone can new a project in sourceforge to group the coders and ideas.

I'm no coder, but I'd be happy to debug, too! (copied from Rodion)

jstarship. i could come in and help.

is kde written in c++ if so yeah i can help. Im not brilliant but if soem one can give me some instructions on kde development the basics then we can get this rolling. BUt im final year uni so have a lot of other crap going on around me so might not be able to spend a heck of a lot of time on it. mosfet's help would be appreciated.. mosfet you listening ??

so jstarship / fop start up a sour ceforge project maybe kde developers will step in and give guidance too. This will be excellent.


fop man your idea might become a reality woohoo..

I did get your email but I have been drinking heavily to celebrate having one good idea in my life.

A couple of people have emailed me about coding, so a sourceforge erm, thing should be started. So if you want to do what needs doing there that would be cool. I would like to have admin access (or whatever it is) so I can upload the graphics n' stuff and help out in my none coding way.

thanks.

yeah, man kde is c++/qt. I would start looking at the 3.1 qt stuff(if i could code my way out of a paper sack...). http://doc.trolltech.com/3.1/

The KDE project has great developer infos at http://developer.kde.org/

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
