Solid: KDE Hardware Library

Solid: KDE Hardware Library

By Yaba
Published: Jan 5 2006

Today computers must deal with a large variety of consumer electronic devices while networks and Internet access have become pervasive. Our desktop must interact robustly with this highly dynamic world.

Solid: KDE Hardware Library

The answer to this is Solid, a new library for accessing hardware information from KDE applications, which will introduced with KDE 4. Another part that makes the wait for KDE 4 even harder. Check it out..

That's a great idea!

Every no linux user always complains that linux doesn't have good interaction with hardware, and winxp recongnizes everything...

Kde4 really will be wonderfull in terms of usability

Congratulations for the innovative way to think!

i dont think this is really good, with all the different platforms kde runs on i am sure some will be left behind.
also i do not think it is a desktop environment's responsibilty to meddle with hardware... the further you take the user away from his "system internals" the more you will confuse him in the end...
same thing going on with the kio-slaves right now: what is the point home:/ ? who in the world is not able to enter /home/hisname ? the first time idiot-user will use a non-kde app he will be completely lost...

why dont you spend the coding time on making a lowlevel hardware interface, that abstracts /dev , make that gui independent, cross-platform, then you will have something really great:
uniform access to hardware from different programs, desktop environments et cetera

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.
