KIconDialog++

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements

5.0
Description:

An improved icon dialog for KDE. This is just a preview edition, but the source code is more or less complete. It even includes a test application. If for some strange reason you wish to build it, you must manually edit the makefile, seeing as it is not yet autotooled. See README, BUGS.

Version 0.3

- Fixed some of the annoyances with the initial GUI.
- Scale down non-system icons that are larger than requested size.
- Change lockUser and lockcustomDir parameters to lockContext and lockBrowse, respectively, because
that is more descriptive of what they currently do.
- KIconButton supports all options of KIconDialog, including customDir, lockContext, and lockBrowse.
- Full-featured testbed, KIconTester.

Version 0.2

- Totally new GUI layout, done with Qt Designer.
- KIconCanvas split off into its kiconcanvas.h and kiconcanvas.cpp (so that it could be used in the GUI design).
- Searchbar is now replaced by progress bar during loading.
- New "Recent" category saves recently chosen icons.
- Icons are now sorted case insensitvely, for bad icon themes that contain caps.
- "Mimetypes" renamed to "File Types"
- "Filesystems" renamed to "Filesystem"
- "Search" renamed to "Filter"

As I said before, I think the word "uncategorized" is ok (but not the best), so I'd say there's no need to further discuss this.

I have an idea how to (imho) better place the "Browse" button.
You could move the "Browse"-button somewhere below or above the icon selection field and add a descriptive label to it.

See http://kinitiator.sf.net/icondialog.png for reference.
The mockup isn't as "nice" as yours as it was quickly build together with Qt Designer and therefore hasn't any nice icons or anything fancy. It only shows in which way I'd place the button...

Now that I realized that's where the Help button is placed most of the times, I agree it's not a good position. My suggestion is to remove it and add an Browse for file... as the last entry in the combobox.

I mean, I love it where it is in the screenshot.

Less is always cleaner and better to me. I would maybe suggest changing the name from Uncategorized, to non-kde or something like that to differentiate that these are icons not from the KDE packages.

I would check to see any there are any possible changes coming in the kicon dialog in KDE 4.0 as this may make this a moot point.

The change isn't enough for me to patch and recompile what I have now, (Its not a big deal), but if included as default, it would be nice.

I also think it should be called something else, but that's because "All categories" doesn't really include "Uncategorized" (IMHO at least). Or "All categories" could be called "All icons" when it would include also icons in "Uncategorized".

Otherwise this looks really nice, and most important, simplier than present dialog.

Actually, originally I had Non-KDE, but it looked weird ;-).

Also, a reason to keep "Uncategorized" instead of non-KDE is that we geeks thinks in terms of the system. We know what "KDE", "GNOME", and so forth is, but a regular user do not. In other words, that's another aspect, apart from what phrase that is visually pleasing. Cheers, Frans

Here's a compromise: how about "Other?"
