Gnome Quite a little interesting tidbit on Planet GNOME today. As we all know, the default file manager for the GNOME desktop is Nautilus. While there's nothing inherently wrong with it, it does have this odd interface where actually more screen space is dedicated to controls and buttons than to the actual part that matters: your files. As part of Ubuntu's Papercuts project, a fix has been worked on.

I'd really loooove to see some hard numbers showing how GNOME is so bloated compared to XFCE.

I can't comment on bloat of GNOME vs. Xfce. However, I run GNOME's NetworkManager applet under KDE (the KDE one doesn't work well for me) and I'm a bit confused why it loads gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor, some CD burning capability, etc. into my RAM.
I have enough RAM not to care a lot about those nm-applet dependencies. I'm just telling what I observe.


PS: Before anybody mentions it: WiCD doesn't work for me either.

I'm about to release a new KDE4 knetworkmanager version. If you have any unreported issues preventing you using the applet other than

* not shipped with fedora (changing for F12)
* crashing Plasma (fixed)

please let me know.

Well, not connecting at all to any WLAN under openSUSE 11.1 + KDE Factory is my problem with it.

What I would like is the option to run the KDE network manager in the systray. I use KDE with awesome so plasma applets are useless to me (nothing against plasma though, it's just not for me).
