Description Panagiotis Papadopoulos 2009-03-21 02:34:47 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.1)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Unlisted Binary Package


I noticed, that the KMix settings ui currently does not look really nice imho.
So I created a simple mockup, which shows how the settings UI ideally could look like.

btw: I can't seem to find any *.ui file for KMix settings dialog in KDEs svn, is there any?^^

thank you

I am not sure whether your design confomrs to the KDE  Human Interface Guidelines (http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Usability/HIG), and usablity guidelines.
Also, due to time constraaints it is very unlikely that I will rouch that dialog.
Comment 4 Christian Esken 2009-03-21 12:32:00 UTC
Sorry, typo: Shold have read "touch that dialog"  instead of "rouch that dialog"
Comment 5 Panagiotis Papadopoulos 2009-03-21 13:11:59 UTC
ok I got your point :)
But I think that at least the alignment of the second checkbox should be fixed ;)

Interesting that this got already posted (4 years ago). The dialog still looks like a mess.

The problem is still the same as shown in comment 1. The proposed mockup should be implemented.

I'm reopening this issue, since this is ...
a) trivial to fix
b) a perfect fit for a junior job
Comment 7 Kevin Funk 2013-10-30 21:51:27 UTC
By the way: I'm also proposing to use a Qt Designer UI file for this dialog.

Closing. I did not remember there was a ticket for this, I have created a new one, bug 328599. For a sneak preview, please see http://kmix5.wordpress.com/2013/11/26/secret-view-in-the-new-configuration-dialog/
