Re: Poll - Happy with KDE 4 or not?

As many of you know, I have not been a fan of the progress(?) that KDE 4 has made. My feeling has been that it was rushed out, and declared ready before it ever was. I also feel that too much emphasis was placed on spinning cubes, wobbly windows, etc., and not enough on pure functionality. I also fe...

Re: New Forum Comments

Great work guys. :clap: A small thing: My post count seems to be substantially lower. I don't mind that, but it also changed the title under my online status from "Mepis Guide" to "Mepis Rules" as well as the number of pyramids showing. I don't mind that either, I just noticed it and thought I would...

Well, thanks to joany's question, I have discovered I can actually get the same effect using the "information" setting (F11) in Dolphin. It's not as simple as the gwenview plugin was for konqueror, but it is the closest I've come across yet. KDE 4 is quite tweakable, sometimes you just have to dig a...

No, it was Konqueror's ability (via the gwenview plugin) to open the entire folder showing all the images to the left, with a bigger single image view to the right. I don't have a screenie, I wrote over my M8 partition set the other day with M8.5 32bit. Thanks for the help though, I appreciate the e...

if there was an image plugin for Dolphin that worked as well as the Gwenview Plugin did for Konqueror, I'd be a happy camper.....

As much as I still like KDE 3.5x, I prefer and run KDE 4 most of the time. There still a little glitch or two that occurs occasionally (like KDE Screensavers), but nothing too serious. I did a clean install of Mepis 8.5 a little while back. The first time was a disaster. It must have been something ...

I am very happy with MEPIS 8.5 and KDE 4.4. I was skeptical when KDE4 was first released. In fact I disliked it. As more releases came out I became a convert. And Warren has done a great job integrating KDE4 with stable Debian, not an easy task. I am looking forward with great anticipation to Mepis...

Never mind, I seem to have it now. I had rebooted KDE with no luck, but when I rebooted the PC, it appears now. :smile:

Thanks brooko!!

How do you guys get the Mepis button (or the traditional KDE icon) to show for the menu? All I get is the left arrow with the blue line?
