Exploring the KDE Plasma Netbook interface

Oct 24, 2010, 15:05 (1 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to finid for this link. ]

"The latest K Desktop Environment, KDE, features two modes of interacting with the desktop – the classic Desktop interface and the Netbook interface. On recent KDE-based distributions that I have reviewed for this website, the default is the classic Desktop, but switching to the Netbook interface is an easy, few seconds process. I posted a few screenshots of the Netbook interface in a review of Kubuntu 10.10. In this article, I will present a detailed look at the features of this new interface type.

"To switch to the Netbook interface, launch System Settings and click on the Workspace icon (under Workspace Appearance and Behavior). The default Netbook interface is shown below.

"The interface is made of three sections – the Panel, the Bookmarks widgets area, and the Main (Menu) widgets area. Right-clicking on any part of the Netbook interface brings up a context menu, and one available option allows you to add more widgets."
