Missing Applications

This page is for documenting and discussing missing applications in KDE4, whether these are KDE3 apps that haven't made the switch yet, or apps from other desktops that there are no KDE equivalents for.

Before adding an app to the list, first look to see if it has already been 'found'.

This page was inspired by a blog by Ana Guerrero (ana)

App Name

Description

Link

Status

Alternatives

Notes

KRecord

Description KRecord is a quick sound recording app. It can record audio from the default device, and it saves it in .WAV format. It has a list of already recorded audio.

Link http://linux.bytesex.org/misc/krecord.html

Status Unknown

Alternatives There's the possibility of installing GNOME Sound Recorder, but, apart from the integration, GSR lacks a list of already recorded audio, like the list in KRecord. There's also KWave, but it's overkill to manage simple recording tasks with that.

Notes KRecord doesn't support any form of PulseAudio. It also doesn't support lossy encoding (MP3/OGG), very useful for the task. Also, it would be great if KRecord gains some Nepomuk support in the form of tags and audio content description.

KBarcode

Description KBarcode is a barcode and label printing application for KDE3. It can be used to print everything from simple business cards up to complex labels with several barcodes (e.g. article descriptions).

Link http://www.kbarcode.net/

Status 2011-03-22 - Unknown.

Alternatives

Notes See Prison, a new barcode library in kdesupport by Sune Vuroela. A rename would be good to emphasise the label and business card side.

KTechLab

Description KTechlab is a KDE3 IDE for microcontrollers and electronics.

Link http://sourceforge.net/projects/ktechlab/

Status 2011-03-22 KDE4 port in progress but very slow, help welcome.

Alternatives Cirkuit

Notes

KBiff

Description KBiff is a "biff" or new mail notification utility.

Link http://www.kbiff.org/

Status 2011-03-22 KDE4 port tagged?

Alternatives LionMail?

Notes

KontrollerLab

Description The KontrollerLab is a tool which can be used for developing microcontroller software.

Link http://www.cadmaniac.org/projectMain.php?projectName=kontrollerlab , or on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontrollerlab/

Status 2011-03-22 Doesn't seem like there's any progress on the KDE4 port.

Alternatives Text editor and makefiles

Notes

KPrinter

Description A tool to print and convert (for example pdf multiple page layout conversion) documents.

Link http://printing.kde.org/overview/kprinter.php

Status not ported

Alternatives none

Notes

eDonkey/ED2K/eMule/Kademlia filesharing app

Description There is no KDE client for P2P filesharing network eDonkey2000 (ED2K) or enhanced eMule protocol or the distributed protocol Kademlia. These three are usually all supported in the same app.

Link N/A

Status N/A

Alternatives aMule

Notes aMule is there but it looks very bad in KDE and in general its user interface is quite bad. We can do much better with Qt and KDE libraries. It would be nice if the GUI and the protocol library/libraries would be separate (like in KTorrent/libktorrent).

In Progress

This section will list applications whose KDE4 port is in progress but not yet completed. The authors may appreciate your help in getting them finished.

Found Applications

Document here applications that have been successfully 'found', or applications commonly requested that already have acceptable KDE alternatives.


Old Port Status
