Description Dennis Jansen 2008-07-10 00:53:42 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.0.83)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

When I use the toggle buttons in kcmshell4 display to set the standby, off, etc. times,
it sets the time in 10 minute steps. I think many people would at least use 5 minute steps.
Fortunately manual input still works, so just a minor issue. But the fix should be easy as well,
just a small modification in the .ui file's SpinBox.

Who is maintaining this? Maybe I can just upload the change to SVN?

I just fixed this in svn revision 830352.

"Reduce spin box step size for standby/suspend/off setting from 10 minutes to 1 minute.

This should make it easier to change the values for the average user.
Some users might be frustrated by 10 minute steps and think
they can't use smaller steps otherwise. It also saves the user
from using the keyboard for changing the settings.

5 minutes might be a more practical value, but it is less intuitive
for the average user.

Entering high values is probably more rare and can be done
using the keyboard. But the limit is currently at 120 minutes anyway."
