Proposals for linux environment
I am a Windows veteran which is recently migrated to GNU/Linux!
I want to suggest some things which I think can gets the linux, and also other platforms, better! But my love is Free Software which in my opinion deserts my full considerations.
Before any other discussing I want to say that I impressed by gnu/linux structure, facilities, applications, KDE ... konqueror ...,capabilities, flexibility, security robustness, configuration & customization extent, powerfull shell realy utilizable as a system and administrative programming facility, etc.! anyway I am yet new to linux...
But i have several ideas already which imho are worth mentioning for my love.
I would glad to see this topic as a place for not my few little ideas only, but a place for discussing other users ideas and requests from FS community.
Ok, now my proposals:
- I think it is a realy good facility (esp. for progarmmers) to be able to copy contents of plain text files straightforwardly via a context menu option.
Many times we want just to copy entire (or majority of) contents of a text file, but we have to open it in a text editor first, and probably closing it immediately after doing so.
I think It is popular enough for implementing as a default feature in GUI.
opening a text file in an editor also has the possibility of changing its contents unintentionally and copying unequal contents than disk contents.
- another desire is existent of a refresh button in editors toolbar!
all text editors I have ever seen have not such facility.
In my point of view it is wondering! whats the reason for lacking this feature?
i always have needed such a facility, and have to utilize for example a webbrowser for that purpose.
many times we want to see current contents of an opened file on disk occasionally or sequentially that may be changed by another application or running program and also want to be able to edit it.
I am waiting for your opinions.
sorry for bad english.
