Recensione di KDE su Ubuntu 11.10 per i fissati di GNOME o Unity

Ogni tanto mi capita di installare KDE sopra GNOME per poi puntualmente pentirmene qualche ora dopo, e ritrovarmi a rimuovere tutte le dipendenze lasciate in giro per il sistema mentre mi punisco fisicamente e prometto di non farlo mai più.

Ultimamente l’ho rifatto. KDE 4.7.2 su Ubuntu 11.10, installato tramite il pacchetto kubuntu-desktop. Probabilmente è la prima volta che non lo disinstallo… almeno fino alla prossima release di Unity (LTS).

Oxygen e il – fottuto – padding!

Come più volte ricordato da felipe su Pollycoke, agli utenti con un minimo di gusto estetico non dispiacerebbe avere qualche maledetto pixel intorno ai pulsanti. E non dispiacerebbe nemmeno avere delle interfacce con gli elementi allineati tra di loro. Sarà chiedere troppo?

Eppure sono anni che nessuno si muove… un vero peccato.

Ottimo invece il resto del tema Oxygen. Molto bello e secondo me migliore, sotto certi aspetti, di Ambiance e in genere di tutti i temi GNOME comunemente usati: troppo obesi e con un colore dominante che sa di vecchio.

L’ombra blu di Oxygen intorno alle finestre col focus, poi, è e sarà sempre una cosa inutile ma infinitamente bella.

Preferivo però le icone del vecchio Oxygen.

Io lo schermo ce l’ho grosso

Non so se è solo una mia impressione oppure c’è un motivo oggettivo, ma tutti i desktop GNOME o Unity che ho usato mi hanno sempre fatto sembrare lo spazio sullo schermo minore di quello che offre un desktop Windows. Probabilmente è sempre a causa dei pulsanti obesi, ma non me la sento di dare la colpa solo a loro… anche perché avrei dovuto chiamarli pulsanti diversamente senza-padding. Scusate.

KDE invece, è… spazioso1. Insomma, sembra di avere più spazio a disposizione. Oppure lo schermo sembra più grande. O la risoluzione più alta. O…

Disordinatamente bello. Ma anche brutto.

Restando sul tema “aspetto grafico”, vorrei far notare l’oscenità della barra delle applicazioni. E ve la faccio notare a pezzi, perché con la dimensione che lo schermo sembra aver assunto sono sicuro che non riuscirei a farla entrare tutta intera in una misera pagina web.

La parte sinistra della barra è quel che è. Un pulsante menu con un’icona che a me fa un po’ schifo, tre palline buttate lì giusto per rompere l’uniformità delle dimensioni delle icone, una enorme cartella per navigare velocemente il file system2 e dei rettangoli che vorrebbero indicarci su quale desktop siamo attualmente posizionati, ma non lo fanno perché sono stati disegnati in modo troppo luccicoso e non ci si capisce niente.

Nella parte destra viene il bello. La data corrente è giustamente scritta nero su grigio scurissimo, garantendo così una ottima chiarezza di lettura. Il network manager è talmente poco intuitivo che vorrei non parlarne, quindi per ora mi limito a dire che un’icona animata come su Unity potevano anche mettercela. Accidenti.

Batteria, bluetooth, audio e Klipper si salvano a modo loro. Poi c’è uno spazio, dove uno si chiede se lì c’è una qualche icona invisibile oppure i designer si sono drogati3, e successivamente troviamo una serie di icone non-standard (provenienti dal mio desktop Unity) rigorosamente allineate a caso.

Ora io, essendomi abituato a Unity, non posso che notare un paio di cose:

  1. ogni icona fa una cosa con il tasto sinistro del mouse, e un’altra con il tasto destro. Se devo trovare una particolare voce di menu, o non la troverò mai perché sbaglio tasto senza pensarci, oppure vado completamente a caso. Unity ha migliorato enormemente questo aspetto, facendo in modo che il menu sia uno solo… in qualsiasi modo uno lo richiami.
  2. l’aspetto delle icone è troppo sofisticato per il compito che svolgono, cosa che a volte rende difficile individuarle a colpo d’occhio. Anche qui seguirei nei limiti del possibile l’esempio dato da Unity.
