 KPDF

 
 by djworld on: Jan 30 2005
 
Score 50%

I used to install betas but now I'm on Debian and I prefer to let apt manage the packages and I try not to compile anything as far as it's possible.

Anyway, I saw a few screenshots of KPDF and I was impressed, so I couldn't wait. I downloaded the package kdegraphics 3.4 beta 1 and compiled only KPDF. Then I've installed it in a diferent directory than the usual so I can remove it when KDE 3.4 is on Debian without affecting the installation. Everything is working fine, I use KDE 3.3.2 with the new KPDF so I'm happy. :)

New KPdf kicks ass, it displays pages much faster then the previoius one, but it still lacks the ability of making "many pages in one" (eg. 8 pages in one), this feature is very important for me coz i always get a lot of materials that i need to print... and printing one page on one piece of paper is just a waste of money and time.

kprint can do this automatically if used with cups. And there's postscript filters to do this as well. No need for application-side support for that feature.

KPrinter can do it. Or not?

Anyway I don't think that KPDF is the right place. It should be part of KPrinter so that it works for every app.

It seems strange, but I always use this with kprint ( 4 pages only ), If you want more make a new pdf with 2 pages on 1 and configure kprint to print the new with the 4 in 1 option. It's too much easy. If you want to print an OpenOffice doucment use the "print preview" button and select the view that you prefer.

Wow, so many people dont install betas? Surprising. I found out a long time ago, beta means nothing. I have had the same problems with so called "stable" releases as I have with betas...

Anyway, I am happy with some of the new additions and dont see that many bugs that need to be fixed before it hits the milestone 3.4.

The new "icon zooming", if you can call it that is just aweful. Just really, really aweful...they should have just removed the feature altogether or left the previous way...


Yeah? Well...you're hogging up all the ugly!

I agree totaly with lokheed ! I thought this site was for kde hackers and 44% don't install beta releases ? What is the point of a beta then ? I find kde 3.4 great and the few crashes are nothing compared to the amazing new features!

I also agree on the "icon zooming", the previous way was better.

I'll beta test apps like Inscape or Gimp but I like my desktop environment stable as possible.

I'm temped, but I'll leave it alone for now.

Right on jalogisch! I also thought this place was for KDE hackers. I guess we were grossly mistaken.

Stable, what makes it stable? A bunch of developers agreeing that the release should be stamped a milestone?

I know thats a bit of a drastic look at it, but its not that far off. So far the only bugs I can see are that you can delete the trash can, there is an error coming back from the "lock screen" option were you have to kill X to get back into KDE and, hmm, I think thats about it. I havent encountered anything else that is really show stopping. I dont really use anything exotic and I am sure there are far more bugs out there but this release is very, very usable for daily use.

Actually I have had some really big problems from 3.3.2 get fixed so I ain't going back, no way.

I install anything and ironically, the only thing that has hosed my system was a package marked completely stable...funny huh?

A shameless plug for Gentoo: If you were running Gentoo, the new KDE is slotted so that means you can have both installed and switch back and forth between the two. Not sure if other distros allow this sort of thing but it makes even trying the most outrageous beta packages painless.

I am running almost completely beta. Firefox nightlies, Xorg is beta 6.8.2, KDE obviously beta. You name it, if its new, I most likely have it installed. My system is a rock. I guess I just like to be bleeding edge ;)

I do wish more people did try it and file bug reports. This would help the project move along so much faster.

I'm confused about the part where everyone seems to think this is a place for kde hackers. I saw this survey on kde-look.org, a site for themes an' graphics an' artsy stuff! ;)
so I wouldn't expect to find a lot of hackers here running bleeding-edge code.

and I agree about the stable desktop bit. If I had a second machine I could afford to mess around with, then I would. But when I have 3 papers to write and large collaborative group projects, I tend to stick with whatever's working until after the heat is off.

I have installed on my KDE 3.4 the sytem task v2 and it works fine.

 Beta testing

 
 by nightdragon on: Feb 2 2005
 
Score 50%

If betas are not tested then programs don't get fixed. So many people ask for features and things but don't test the betas to offer bug reports or suggestions.

As far as icon zooming, it's not called that anymore, it's called "icon mouseover effects". :-)

Come on people, beta test the heck out of this thing so it can be perfect. It, wont kill your machine.

Is there any trick to install KDE Beta in a different directory. I want to add a new "testing" user and install kde in a new directory ( /home/testing/kdebeta ), help me please , also I want to know the correct options to add when compiling and the list of the packages that kde 3.4 needs. Thank You.

There is a tutorial on KDE's site for compiling into another place.
Take a look here:

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.
