Call me old-fashioned, Mark but I prefer the multiple desktop with pager setup (similar to how one would set it up on KDE 3.5) than KDE4's desktop activities. I still get lost in the zoom in and out on those. At times I can't get back to the first activity. Well, I would try those again as the plasma workspace get a bit more mature.
I'm not against the ZUI. I think it has some advantages. I'm just trying to figure out if it's integrated with Pager in some way or if they are independent or one another.
Plus, from the video link I posted, it appears I don't have all the controls in ZUI. I'm not getting a button to dop a 2X zoom. I'm alos not getting an option on each desktop to remove them. This would the large red "X" I mentioned before.
it could be I'm simply missing a file of some sort that needs to be downloaded from the repository. It could also be that this is a previous version of Plasma than the one in the video.
That being said, I like the KDE4 desktop and Plasma a lot! I'm finding it a lot easier to organize and find files. Plus, my desktop has a lot less clutter. And, if I choose, I can simply move to another desktop a and have new plasmoids, folders, icons, etc.
I'm just having a bit of a problem getting ZUI to do what I want it to do. It's not a major problem, just a minor nuisance. I'm still searching the web for information to clarify the situation.
