Re: KDE suggestions for Fedora 8 and beyond

Hi I'd like to throw a couple of my thoughts about KDE in Fedora and how it
could be improved.

1.  QT-Frontend for YUM
        There are lots of good GTK frontends for yum (pirut, yumex) but there aren't
really any good QT frontends for yum.  There is kyum but it's certainly
lacking in comparison to yumex.  I think a QT version of yumex could be real
nice and it could cut down on GTK dependencies in KDE, maybe?  Another
suggestions would be to port Adept from Kubuntu or Debian.
You need to code that and submit it.

2.  KDE Update Notifier
        Maybe a frontend for pup in QT or adept-updater?
See remark above.

3.  Selecting KDE meta-package on the dvd brings in KDE only apps (except
maybe GIMP and Firefox).
Neither GIMP nor Firefox are KDE apps. They will need to be brought it
seperately. Personally, I use neither on Linux. Konqui does the job
for me.

        I noticed when I selected KDE and deselected GNOME that it still wanted to
install rhythmbox, soundjuicer, totem, pidgin, and other GNOME apps.  This is
not only adding to bloat from a KDE users stand point but it's also a bit
annoying.  I am sure GNOME users don't want a lot of KDE apps stinking of
their desktops unless they select them.
Amen, brotha, preach on. Tell them like it should be. I am personally
sick of having to unselect all the gnome stuff and then forcefully
remove them via 'rpm -e --nodeps'. I want a pure KDE desktop, not a
hybrid one.

4.  Nice windeco and style
        The inclusion of KDE4 and oxygen might obsolete this thought.

5.  A KDE irc channel
        Something like #fedora-kde on irc.freenode.net would be a nice place for
those interested in KDE to discuss KDE on fedora, packaging, KDE4, and other
related issues.  This would not be for support and this would of course be
specified in the topic.  This could provide a place for the KDE developers
and those interested in packaging, art, and helping out to discuss relevant
issues.  I know that opensuse, debian, and kubuntu all have channels similar
to this.
Not sure whether this had already been done in the past. Still, I've
stopped doing irc, so I am not sure whether I would hang out there.
