I started learning QT and need an idea for a simple application I could create as an exercise. I am sick of creating another calculator nobody will ever use. So I need a suggestion for something that actually someone would find useful. Maybe a small tool that is only available in GTK or something else you miss in KDE.

Of course it will be published under GPL if I complete it.

How about an rdesktop frontend? krdc sucks! It doesn't get the screen size right and it can't to console connections to 2008 servers.

Help kbibtex author complete the KDE4 version? http://home.gna.org/kbibtex/

Or port kxmleditor, kbarcode or... kletterwizard to Qt4/KDE4?

Those are pretty popular apps but only working in Qt3/KDE3 now :/

People, please re-read the fist line in Sujao's post:

He's not looking to take on a big project, he's looking for an idea for a simple application.

One of my resolutions for the new year is to get a lightweight Qt4 desktop (lightweight means no KDE) project started. I have been scouring the internetz for all kinds of non-KDE Qt4 apps, so I have a pretty good idea what is needed. I can give you some ideas.

1: A simple CD/DVD burning app. K3b has too many bells and whistles. Maybe something like app-cdr/recorder (which is PyGTK).
2: A PDF reader. Something like app-text/epdfview (which is GTK). I think there is a demo in the poppler-qt4 bindings package.
3: A terminal emulator. QTerminal is a good start, but development seems to have stalled.
4: An image viewer. Yes, I know there are several Qt4 image viewers out there, but none seems to have the features I want. I like media-gfx/mirage (again, GTK).
5: A run dialog (Alt+F2) that is desktop agnostic. Something like x11-misc/gmrun.

Yes, there's a simple suggestion. Write a Qt4-only application called qrun :-)

A diskusage analyser as baobab which comes with gnome-utils.

For JDiskReport there are no sources(so no option) and and the others I know of depend either on kde or gnome.

stupid (as in simple) qt based notepad (something like leafpad) would be a decent start imho.

i expect to be shown an already existing app that provides that functionality, though :]

If you haven't developed the window manager yet you might be interested in checking out antico.

That was an interesting project, but has been abandoned. Its developer switched to OSX... :evil:
I think qlwm could be a good start tho, but it needs work.

How about a Qt4 character map that's actually good for something? Right now gucharmap is the only one I can stand using, the kde one is a horrible straight port from the Qt3 version...

Yeah, I ran across qlwm when I was researching doing something similar. Hopefully your resolutions are stronger than mine B-)

My main gripe with the KDE one is that it itself is more or less a clone of the Windows XP one, which is pretty useless.

(And what's with the grid in qcharselect having a red background? Is it just me?)

It looks nothing like Windows XP. That would be GNOME.

Sorry about that. I actually was interested in this thread way before the I got drawn into the clone discussion.

Yeah, it went way off course there. Probably best to forget that whole thing.


How about a bitmap image editor? There's always room for more of those.

Something like jdownloader?
Or XenCenter? There is python app that aims to be replacement for XenCenter, but it uses pygtk. It would be great to have Qt based XenCenter.

well, since there are so many options, when your ready how about working on a qt port of porthole. It'll be something a lot more complicated, :)

There isn't a good qt frontend for portage. (at least I don't think portato's qt option still developed)

You could help out geki with porting Firefox to Qt4, e.g. doing some themeing work :)
