All, Reviewing my current Trinity 3.5.12 desktop at work, I have found a number of additional useful kcontrol applets that are not in the current 3.5.13. I'm not saying they are needed, but for discussion, here they are. Basically a diff of the entries is: (in 3.5.12 Archlinux - Albert Vaca build) Appearance & Themes KSM Theme Manager Internet & Network Local Network Chat Network Interfaces Protocols Samba Wireless Network Zeroconf Service Discovery Peripherals CD-ROM Information Devices DMA-Channels ICC Color Profile Interrupts IO-Ports Partitions PCI Processors SCSI Sound USB Devices X-Server Power Control Laptop Battery Many of these hold very useful information from /proc and /etc in a tabular layout (eg: Peripherals/Partitions). I don't know if these are/were standard of some distro specific addons, but they were most likely not arch additions. I have updated the side-by-side comparison to include this layout. The side-by-side now has kcontrol layouts for: [3.5.10-suse] [3.5.12-arch] [3.5.13-current] [My Suggestions] http://nirvana.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/kcontrol/ I took a few screenshots to show what I saw in the 3.5.12 kcontrol: http://nirvana.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/kcontrol-ICC.jpg http://nirvana.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/kcontrol-Xserver.jpg Screenshots of the Appearance & Themes - Internet & Network are shown here: http://nirvana.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/kcontrol_3.5.12-1.jpg Nothing pressing and I'm not necessarily arguing for their inclusion. But if you guys that make decisions on what goes in and what doesn't like something you see, I'm certain we could probably track the sources down. The one that did catch my eye was 'Zeroconf Service Discovery'. With the new uses for avahi for iphone printing, etc., it might be nice to have an interface to it in kcontrol. I tested the current build and it will need tweaking. On Arch, the /usr/share/avahi_enabe '1' no longer exists. So the package would need updating by the distro maintainers to work with the version of avahi they ship. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
