No reason behind it as we currently just created a first version of the
susegreeter. This new susegreeter will have an icon on the desktop and
bridges the distribution with the project. First version will be included to
Alpha 7 - see here a preview: http://ktown.kde.org/~binner/greeter.png
Good to see the icon thing is there, as the greeter is a thing that
most users will close and tell it to never pop-up again, so an icon
where the user would be able to launche whenever he wants is really
Idealistic, the user should have easy access to irc, forum, wiki, etc
of opensuse, and this is the oportunity to make it.
In the irc part, konversation already points to #suse, so we have
already seen lots of new users in the channel. its ok. We have thought
in ways of managing the thing.
OK, fine with me, s/one-click/easy access/
But correct, I'm not very much in favor putting an extra icon for
the "One-click to IRC" on the dekstop. Reasons for that:
- we try to minimize the number of icons on the desktop
Not one icon just to launch irc, but one link in the greeter maybe?
Please check these two mockups done some time ago:
They represent the idea of most of the irc people think it should be
desgined. Hope it gives more ideas for all.
- simple icon without further explanation connecting direct to the server
might cause problems
could have a small explanation close to the icon?
- bear in mind we count serveral thousand installations a day and would
pretty many of them to #suse - could become crowded, couldn't it?
Hardly would be that crowded. It's not like it's auto-connecting to
#suse on login ;)
We have been thinking about that it's been a while and we have
workarounds and methods for those and other problems. Which I think we
will discuss in the irc meeting heh
