For those who didn't attend the KControl meetings at aKadmy here is a bit o=
summery and plan for future development:
In the first meeting we decided:
KControl should be:
-User System Configuration
KControl should be:
Based upon that spec it puts KControl at the same level of functionality as=
Windows Contol Center and OS X's System Preferences and at the same time =
prevents KDE applications from requiring KControl in OS X & Windows. This =
why KControl was moved into workspace.
There are a number of modules which will be moved out of KControl entirely =
(privacy, khtml modules that are konq specific, spell, samba server =
configuration etc) and new ones added (network configuration, user admin). =
have already begun the task of sorting through the directories.
Several different layouts of the KControl user interface are going to be us=
tested to get something better for KDE4. Also the majority of modules are =
scheduled to get reworked. An effort will be made to clean up the interfac=
and have the depth be no more then two (i.e. removing many tabs).
There are a few cases such as proxy that need to be investigated on how to =
best procede and I am taking them one at a time. On Windows/OS X we of =
course would like to use the built in system proxy settings. =
I have e-mailed the privacy author who informed me that he doesn't have tim=
to work on it and so I need a volunteer to take over it and turn it into an =
Application. Any takers?
There will be a bunch of work to make this transition. I have started a wi=
page filled with lots of tasks =
If you are interested in helping out you can e-mail me or I am also on IRC =
After cleaning out kcontrol/pics I found the following images that don't se=
to be used:
Anyone know if they are still wanted?
Oh and at the meeting we decided to change the name of the application. Th=
will happen when the new interface is tested and decided (not right now).
