KInfoCenter

KInfoCenter should be completely included in the System Setting application under the Hardware category. My intent is to convert KInfoCenter into a kcm. This idea had been proposed before back in 2009 and has gone nowhere. Consolidating the KDE system tools is one of those "duh!" issues that should be taken more seriously. It's maddening to have to search and install various basic system management components as separate applications, especially KDE management apps.

I'll take this up in the development arena.

Extra Categories

Trying to translate to Greek, I found out that I am not aware of the following categories:

- Actions Policy - Global Policy Configurations - Permissions - Software Management

Do they really exist only in openSUSE KDE configuration? If yes (I am not sure, but I have no such options in Kubuntu) do you consider removing them?

It seems you are right - these modules may be exclusive to openSUSE. I shall comment them out for the time being; distro specific modules should not be in here, I agree.

NOTE: This discussion was moved out of the "Talk:System Settings" page header and place appropriately into a discussion. Sorry for any confusion.

Should modules be documented as part of this page, or should each module be given its own page (which can be subsequently linked to from here)?

Additionally, is it appropriate to document modules now, with the new System Settings layout coming in KDE SC 4.4? The madman 19:30, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

My feeling is that we should perhaps do a page similar to the Applications pages, one for each section, from which individual modules can be linked/documented.
I agree, though, that this may not be the best time to do it. When we are seeing 4.4 betas, perhaps, we may be able to get moving on it. Otherwise, we have to do them twice in a short time. Unless, of course, you think that documenting the modules will be fine and we just have to move links around as things get reorganized. If you are aware than anything more than shuffling around is likely to happen, let's wait. If it's just reorganizing it may be worth starting now. --annew 14:19, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I think we should at least wait for the new 4.4 release. Perhaps prepare the pages, using the changes in 4.4 Beta, then only reveal them when KDE SC 4.4 is stable.
I agree that perhaps there should be a page from http://userbase.kde.org called, "Settings", that looks and feels like the Applications page: control centre modules are also very numerous and comprehensive.The madman 09:49, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
