Description:

This program is designed to clear up clutter on your desktop by stacking icons in a scrollable format. (think deck of cards) Using the scroll wheel on your mouse (button 4 & 5) will cycle through the applications in the .rc file added by you the user from the first application to the end. Then it will loop to the beginning, being an endless loop cycling through your stack of icons.

Features:
o) Background image or no background image support(transparent background).
o) Maximizes desktop space by moving all your icons into one scrollable stack.
o) Drag and Drop support when dragging from the K-menu or the Kicker bar(no Desktop icons or devices yet).
o) No wheel mouse support, by right clicking the theme and selecting the No Wheel Mouse option in the Configure theme menu.
o) Alternate display text when adding applications to customize what is displayed to your needs.
o) Icon theme finding engine to locate your current icons being used by KDE.
o) Mouse over highlighting when on an application to launch.
o) Custom icons support by selecting the directory in which they are stored.
o) Drag and drop a file onto iLaunch and the application displayed will launch it for you if the type is correct.
o) Applications that support multiple files being opened via command line should be able to accept multi-file drops as well.
o) Ability to select a unique icon for the showing application and it is remembered when changing icon themes as well.
o) Automatic resizing to suit the icon theme selected when setting the Custom Icon Directory
o) Remove the current application by right clicking and selecting it from the Configure menu.
o) Middle clicking iLaunch displays the information about the execution command and the location of the icon it's using.

Hi, I'm used to start kghostview by just dropping the file on the icon (on the desktop). Can I do the same with iLaunch ?
Thanks.

That's not currently possible unfortunately. I'll look into any ways that KDE can implement this, but it might be on the shoulders of the superkaramba devs to sort out drag-and-drop functionality.

 Konqueror as browser

 
 by sidi on: Sep 13 2003
 
Score 50%

Hi!

Very nice theme, I like it a lot!

Had to do some funny stuff to get it running, though: First, I had to open another karamba Theme, then I opened ILaunch and the initial add-an-icon-window popped up. Any entry there was ignored. Then I had to log off and on again, and there the graphics was, waiting for the first (!) entry again. (I'm Running Suse 8.2 and Superkaramba 0.32b, got the Suse RPm here, in case that is of interest.)

My Question: When I insert Konqueror as a new icon, it shows up and when I click it, it opens Konqueror as the file browser showing the home directory. Is there a way to configure the .rc file to open Konqueror as the web browser with a blank page?

(I found out that adding any expression results in opening Konqueror and googling for that expression.)

Best regards
Sam

The "Add an icon:" box is from kdialog. There might have been something causing it to not accept input, but I haven't ran across this yet. (Btw, I use mandrake but I may install suse to test this out)

As far as the konqueror issue, you should be able to use any of the command line options with konqueror. So, for example:
konqueror /home/p0z3r
-or-
konqueror http://www.kdelook.org
Try that and see what happens. I'm not at home to test this right now, but it should work.
cheers,

Made it home..
If you "Add an Icon:", type in:
konqueror about:blank
That will open an empty browser window with no page.

That works, thanx a lot!

I just started the iLaunch as the second theme the regular way (right-click on the first theme, "open new theme" and so on) and it started flawlessly. I don't know what that thing was last time I starded it.

I think I found the problem you were talking about with the starting of iLaunch. In testing, I was running from the same directory at the theme file in a terminal. (ie. superkaramba iLaunch.theme)
After installing it on another system and starting it up, I noticed a problem with the images, also the session support doesn't seem to always work unless you reload it before logging out (that makes sure the .rc file gets written, apparently superkaramba doesn't do that upon exiting the session)
I'll get to work on this shortly..

Great, I'm looking forward to those improvements!

Further up you say it's possible to open several themes, for example one for media programs, one for office programs and so on. I thought it would be nice if you could specify an icon whose name differs from the name of the program, let's say to use the Napster-icon for xmule. So it might be possible to use the theme for accessing different folders with konqueror using different icons. What do you think?

Kind regards
Sam

What I do at home for the different named icon issue..
For example, there isnt' really an icon for aterm in the Aqua icons I use. So I go in and copy and then paste and rename it to whatever I want. In this case I copied konsole.png and then pasted & renamed to aterm.png. That lets me use anything I want when it doesn't exist. I've done this before in general simply because there are so many obscure applications that don't get included into the icon sets that are released.
I'll see if there is another way to do this.. like another kdialog box.. or simply a way to have a multi-line input box to handle the application, name, optional icon, etc.

What folders are you referring to? Icons are normally generated by the application that is added. For example if you enter the application as 'gimp', it would look for gimp.png in your current used icon theme or the specified directory that was selected for your icons.
Hope this sheds some light, but please let me know if I'm way off from what you were referring to here.

 Bad paths?

 
 by LewsT on: Oct 12 2003
 
Score 50%

Is it possible to add icon names different from the names of the executables? As it is, I have to make a seperate directory to hold the icons. Also, I currently have to have a custom path to some programs for some reason, so I can't run those programs with this.

Great idea though!!

For applications that don't have an icon, I was cp'ing an icon I wanted to use and renaming it. (Ie cp konsole.png aterm.png) The applications should run if they are in your PATH. However, I am working on an alternate way of adding applications with more options. Like a dialog box with a more than one field. One for display name, one for application name, one for icon location. What distro are you using? and what applications do you have to define a special PATH for? I would love to get this working for you.

Well, for example, I can't open Photoshop on this because I can't specify that wine look in the windows partition. I have to use the Karamba theme "T-Bar" if I want to open windows stuff. I also have to use the command only, I can't have a seperate name. ie, I can't use "Mozilla Firebird", it has to be just "mozilla".

Copying a few lines from the T-Bar theme is probably a good idea, it has seperate kdialogs for the icon path and the executable. If I set up iLaunch for "wine /windows/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/photoshop.exe", who knows where it would try to find the icon.

Okay, I just tried a test using "winexcvs /home/p0z3r/xnews/Xnews.exe" after renaming an icon I wanted to use for 'winexcvs' and it worked fine. Although this method won't make the icon different if you use multiple applications using wine or winexcvs. (ie cp /usr/share/icons/whatever/wine.png /usr/share/icons/whatever/winexcvs.png)
I'm thinking about adding that optional icon location field in the near future, but this should work for now. In iLaunch, the arguments get dropped to make the icon name it searches for.. if you type in 'mozilla firebird', it would look for the icon mozilla.png, but it would still launch 'mozilla firebird'. And, if it can't find an icon, it would give you a default icon. Hope this helps some.. but again, I'm going to rework the icon scheme a bit in the future.

 iLaunch problems

 
 by lordrollo on: Oct 30 2003
 
Score 50%

Ok.. so I start it up, and it is blank. I try and right click on it, but the configure option is greyed out. I can't seem to figure out how to use this thing other then that.

The VERY first time I fired it up, it did come up with a dialog box asking for an app. I put in Gimp, but it didn't show up. I have tried deleting the dir, and replacing it, but that dialog box doesn't come up even after that. I would really like to use this, but I can't seem to configure it.

I am using iLaunce 0.08 and Superkaramba 0.32-1

Thanks

Ok, to help figure out what went wrong.. 1) remove the ~/.superkaramba/iLaunch.rc file (ie. rm -f ~/.superkaramba/iLaunch.rc)
2) in the iLaunch.py file change line 28 to: "debug" = 1
3) run this in a terminal to check the debug output and even post it here to help me help you if you can
waiting to hear what happens.

This is about the third time I've seen this happen, in general. It sounds like the superkaramba executable can't find your modules. You can try going into python (ie type python in a terminal) and then see if the 'import string' gives any errors or just returns to the prompt. The latter is good of course. I might have to setup a suse 9.0 install and see if I can reproduce this error, as I use mandrake. It was tested on both mdk 9.1 and 9.2.

 64x64?

It does support 64x64 icons. What you might be seeing is that when you load it up, by default it searches for your current icon theme and finds the 32x32 size icons just as it is mostly supported by the icons packages here on kdelook.org. BUT, if you right-click on it, go to Configure Theme and select Custom Icon Directory, it will bring up a kdialog where you can enter a directory with the icons you want to use instead. For example:
/usr/share/icons/Umicons/64x64/apps
That's what I've been doing, but I suppose I could put in a configure option to select the size you want, but the drawback is the first time users initial startup will require more configuring before they can use it.

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
