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. Best would probably be to use audacity. 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. LabPlot Description LabPlot is a free software data analysis and visualization application. Link http://labplot.sourceforge.net/ Status very early work-in-progress: http://sourceforge.net/p/labplot/code/ Alternatives QtiPlot: ShareWare like distribution of binaries and closed development process) SciDavis: QtiPlot fork that plans to cooperate with LabPlot on a common backend, development stopped Notes XDrawChem Description Drawing application designed for drawing and analyzing chemical structures and reactions. Link http://xdrawchem.sourceforge.net/ Status application is not fully functional at the moment: https://github.com/rwst/xdrawchem2 Alternatives http://molsketch.sourceforge.net/ Notes unmaintained Qt3 application with unfinished Qt4 port Found Applications Document here applications that have been successfully 'found', or applications commonly requested that already have acceptable KDE alternatives. Old Port Status This is copied form old data in TechBase, needs review and integration in above sections. This page intends to give developers, distributors and users an overview over the porting state of popular KDE3 applications to KDE Platform 4.x. Green: done Orange: work in progress Red: no work done Application Status Comment Basket Beta 2 Katapult KRunner can be used for the same thing KBib ? kdetv KDirStat Now called K4DirStat Kerry KFTPGrabber KGraphViewer viewer is ported; the new application, the editor, is still unstable Kile KioFuse Could somebody with some knowledge of KIOFuse please update the related wiki page? There have been no updates as to the current situation regarding its maintenance since the middle of last year. It no longer seems to be maintained as SVN hasn't shown any commits in around a year. KDevmon it is in playground/network KNetworkManager extragear-base Krecipes KSquirrel needs a maintainer KXMLEditor Quanta Probably will be replaced by KDevelop-Plugins Semantik former KDissert TuxSaver Twinkle Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=KDE/Missing_Applications&oldid=28691" Content is available under Creative Commons License SA 4.0 unless otherwise noted.
