I wrote to this list a couple weeks ago about my kio_resources, which now =
resides on kde-apps.org. Now I'd like to move onto something a little more =
useful - ioslaves to access Konqueror history and bookmarks. These would =
provide Yet Another Way to access the same information already available to =
users, but KDE is about flexibility.
The ioslaves are relatively easy to implement, but...
1. I don't know how notify Konqueror (or whatever application happens to be =
using my protocol) of changes (such as an added bookmark). Supposedly this =
done with a special KDirNotify in KDED, but it isn't really documented.
2. Even if I knew how to do such notifications, it would be impossible =
a) This would require me to receive DCOP messages from =
KHistoryMgr/KBookmarkMgr objects, but unfortunately kioslaves have their ow=
event loop that is not capable of receiving DCOP messages. =
b) Although I could make my KDED plugin listen for these messages, =
KHistoryMgr/KBoomarkMgr unfortunately only broadcast to konqueror-*, and th=
KDED wouldn't receive them anyway.
3. Bookmarks & history both use favicons. I can't, however, set the favicon=
the main icon, because favicons are too small. What I need is to be able to =
overlay the favicon on the document icon. Short of writing a KFilePlugin, i=
there any way to do this (such as a special metadata entry)?
Perhaps bookmark/history management has to be moved to KDED, just like =
favicons, kcookiejar, etc. Or perhaps I am just neglecting something =
