I know that I’m being a bit boring, but I just had to write another post. While everyone is writing about Akademy, unfortunately I am not going this year and I have to focus my mind on something else (to avoid jealousy). That is the main reason Lancelot has been improved this much in the past week or so. :)

Today’s topic is the great return of the Parts applet. As you can see in the screenshot, my desktop has two different lists from the Lancelot menu - favourite applications and storage media.

There isn’t a pleasant way of adding those to desktop yet (you would need to edit the plasma-appletsrc file to get them), but soon it will be a matter of Drag and Drop, or right click -> “Add to desktop”.


You can support my work on , or you can get my book Functional Programming in C++ at if you're into that sort of thing.
