JLP's KDE 3.5 Previews (Part 1)

Every year, during the summer holidays, I regularly download the source code of the new version of KDE desktop that's in the works and compile it, test it and help with translation into Slovenian language. This year I've decided to also post previews of the development version of KDE on my blog. I'll try to put up as many screenshots as possible so that everyone can see what is coming in the future. JLP's KDE 3.5 Previews - Part 1 is now available.

Comments

> Look at the code: "kdelibs/kio/kfile/kfilespeedbar.cpp". The same needs to be implemented in other places for consistency.

"Also provides an optional "Documents Folder" entry in
system:/ if the document path is different from $HOME."

Yes, that is one place and I am aware of the commit.

I haven't had a chance to test it yet (I am currently converting my source tree to branches/3.5).

What about the other places that "Home" or "Home Folder" appears with the incorrect presumption that that folder is where the user stores their files?

OK, so now I have tried it.

What the ... is that folder: "Users Folders [sic]" for? What is the purpose and why does it exist? Again, I thought that this useless *feature* was being dropped.

Why are we using the icon "folder_important" for "Documents Folder? Shouldn't we use a better name?

I made the icons "folder_personal. They are here:

Please use them.

How about room? :p, so we've got for example: /home/acount/room (and room is for all it's stuff, and in room we have for example documents; films; music; pictures....?
