kdebase-3.5.10p59 – K Desktop Environment, basic applications


KDE is a network transparent contemporary desktop environment for UNIX
workstations. It was written by a world-wide network of software
engineers committed to free software development. KDE seeks to fill
the need for an easy to use desktop for Unix workstations, similar to
the desktop environments found under the MacOS or Window95/NT.

This package holds the basic KDE applications. It contains:

* applnk: files to create the icons for the K menu button
* doc: XML formatted documentation files for the apps
* drkonqi: if ever an app crashes (heaven forbid!) then Dr.Konqi will be so
           kind and make a stack trace. This is a great help for the
           developers to fix the bug.
* kaddressbook: an addressbook (for postal addresses, phone numbers and
                of course for e-mail addresses)
* kappfinder: searches your hard disk for non-KDE applications, e.g. Acrobat
              Reader (tm) and installs those apps under the K start button
* kate: a fast and advanced text editor with nice plugins
* kcheckpass: small program to enter and check passwords, only to be used by
              other programs
* kcontrol: the KDE Control Center allows you to tweak the KDE settings
* kdcop: GUI app to browse for DCOP interfaces, can also execute them
* kdebugdialog: allows you to specify which debug messages you want to see
* kdeprint: the KDE printing system
* kdesktop: you guessed it: the desktop above the panel
* kdesu: a graphical front end to "su"
* kdm: replacement for XDM, for those people that like graphical logins
* kfind: find files
* khelpcenter: the app to read all great documentation about KDE
* khotkeys: intercepts keys and can call applications
* kicker: the panel at the bottom with the K start button and the taskbar etc
* kioslave: infrastructure that helps make every application internet enabled
            e.g. to directly save a file to ftp://place.org/dir/file.txt
* klipper: enhances and extends the X clipboard
* kmenuedit: edit for the menu below the K start button
* konqueror: the file manager and web browser you get easily used to

* ksmserver: the KDE session manager (saves program status on login, restarts
             those program at the next login)

* kstart: to launch applications with special window properties
          such as iconified etc
