KBFX - News Hi all of you.
First i want to say a big thanks for all your support through the years KBFX for KDE3 was developed.
You have been very helpful to us with your comments, ideas, reports etc.
It has been a while KBFX being "frozen".
The actual reasons are a lot and I have explained them in an answer to a user that asked a question about what's going on with the project (link to the question/answer).
Anyway as we spoke with Siraj (the main developer of KBFX) we came to the conclusion that we need to go on developing KBFX for KDE 4 afterall.
So we need your help. We accept any volunteers as developers/designers/QA specialists etc... for the project.
Any ideas and mockups etc are welcome.
There is a separate section for KBFX on KDE 4 in the forum so you can say what you think and exchange ideas.
Right now we desperately need a designer for a new astonishing look of KBFX...
Later on we will gather the new KBFX Team and see what we will create :)
We depend on you and are waiting for your proposals...
Meanwhile you may take a look at another interesting project of ours we are working on: PlexyDesk

KBFX - News During the last few months we had some intensive development around raptor menu engine,
and it has reached a level that we can start working on KBFX.
Since we are starting a new menu for KDE4 desktop, we decided that we will also switch our SVN over to googlecode...
So stay tuned for a whole new KBFX menu,

See ya!

KBFX - News Hi All! A strange thing happened on friday.. On the way back to the home from my work at IKEA (?lmhult) i was sitting in the buss and a guy
infront of me was reading Swedish newspaper called DATORMAGAZIN. So i know that they have a Linuxpart in those magazines
and since i was sitting behind him i was looking also while he was reading and when he came to the Linuxpart I was so courious.

Suddenly a strange thing has happens.. KBFX is in the magazine. I could?t belive it. So i kindly asked the man infront of me if he would
let me read the article and I read it thru and a user in magazine had a question

When i start my Kmenu there is soo many applications that they take all my desktop space and i can?t see a single thing
on my desktop. The current menu handleing in KDE is really not usefull and not userfriend. Is there any other solutions?

I can agree with you that current KDE menu hadleing is not the best, and there is not obvious solution on your problem
but there are alternatives. One example is KBFX. It?s a replacement for original KMENU.
It?s not only better looking. It?s more practical and it offers a way better settings options.
It doesnt take that much space and the user can scoll the menu.

I have created a link with the scanned page with the news.
All thow it?s in Swedish it?s still quite nice to look at.


Thanks all!
