So I created work/konsole4-ui to work on porting Konsole to XMLGUI (and LiveUI?). I'm also using as a test area for some ideas and code cleanup. So far so good, I got the session menus to work. The shortcuts are an issue I have to look into again. Things will be much better when I can actually run KDE4 so I can test session managment, config files, etc...
Many thanks to Robert Knight who has been doing a lot of work on Konsole' backend for KDE4.
I like APOD images and in general cool outer space images. I wanted to place these small images (400x400) on my KDE desktop in a certain location that didn't have anything else there. How to do this? No idea... :-( I couldn't find a single program KDE or not to handle this. KDE3 KControl/Background has a few issues... urgh! I hope KDE4 is "better".
Anyway, since I've coded KDE kdesktop/background DCOP before, I threw together a DCOP call to position an image on KDE's desktop. It is not perfect and it won't go into KDE3. But it works... :-)
void setWallpaper(int desk,QString wallpaper,int X,int Y)
dcop kdesktop KBackgroundIface setWallpaper 1 %s 400 0
The %s will get changed to the image... pretty cool!
