Let's make this a new Gnome entirely !?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi; I am looking for suggestions of where I can get this conversation going with some people who would like to participate in such a conversation. I want to go forward not back. I would like to see Gnome get rid of all panels, task bars, and extraneous dodads in my work spaces. I want instead to use dockers, multiple dockers that I can call up by short cut key, mouse motion or from the activities space. I would like the dockers to have all the properties of a file, an icon, a launcher and a panel or several different panels. I want to be able a new different docker on the Activities window, place launchers and files in the docker and name it. That way I can have a main application running in a work space but also a docker that contains subsidiary programs that I use often while working in that application. I can then design or load dockers that would have applications or what used to be applets that are apropos to the type of work I was doing and/or the main application I was using. I would have several different kinds of these dockers to pick and choose from. I would like the dockers to be made visible on my desktop/workspace the same way I can make a main program visible. I.E. drag and drop it in a workspace in the activities window. I would like the docker to appear on my workspace as a small icon that could be opened like a file to see all of the subsidiary applications or functions I have available to me. I would like the docker not to be restricted to a bar shape, but be able to re-size and re-shape it much the same way as a application window by grabbing the edges or bottom right corner. There are many other considerations that could go into this design, but essentially I would like to get rid of the desktop metaphor and instead make my windows project and work oriented. I do more than one kind of thing on my computer. I want to be able to easily write an article in LibreOffice using all my tools such as dictionary, thesaurus and character map for writing. Then, say, switch to something completely unrelated like working with music in another workspace and have a docker for that that contained music subsidiary applications , or browsing the internet. I would like to have a docker where I kept all my system tools. The menu would serve me as the place to find the items I wanted to put in my various dockers or to store programs seldom used. Is anybody interested in this kind of concept and/or discussion? -- Regards Bill Fedora 15, Gnome 3.0.2 Evo.3.0.2, Emacs 23.2.1 _______________________________________________ gnome-list mailing list gnome-list@xxxxxxxxx http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-list
