While exploring the new "Theme Manager" option, it came to my attention that
you can access the Color, Style, Background, Icons, and Screensaver control
panels all from here, with nice clear buttons.
At first I was wonrdering, "why are these even here when they are duplicated
right there on the tree?" Then I realized that the kcm could be launched
seperatly, and also, that they really are all part of the "theme'
So, I have a suggestion - why not rename "Theme Manager" to "Look & Feel",
move the buttons to the top of this screen (instead of the bottom), change
the label of the buttons from "Customize your Theme" to "Customize your
Desktop", and get rid of the options in the tree for these things. This would
- Unify where to configure these things
- Cut down on duplicated tree items
PS: I also think the splash screen, fonts, and window decorations should be
part of the theme, but this is more of a wishlist.
If you wait by the river long enough, eventually
you will see the bodies of all your enemies float by.
