[Poll] Statistics for configuration and usage of properties

Registered by Jan on 2010-07-01

Implementing a feature to send anonymous usage statistics to the developer as base for deciding on default configuration is currently work at the wrong end. So we’ll just use this blueprint for that.

To have an informal poll, you can post your configuration here for research purposes. Please use the format / order below. Also please provide the reasoning behind your decisions and don’t forget to update them in case you change it. :)

 – General
* Placement of applet (Panel or Docky; orientation: top left etc.)
* Menu size & position of splitter
* Usage of pinned items & side pane

 – Main window
* Shortcut key
* Show session buttons in bottom pane
* Keep search results when Cardapio is hidden
* Open categories when cursor hovers them

 – Panel applet
* Applet label
* Applet icon
* Open menu when cursor hovers the applet

 – Plugins, in order
* Usage & non-usage

 – Manual changes to config.ini
* If any

[jancborchardt]
 – General
* Top panel, top left edge (I only have this one panel)
* Standard width & splitter position, height expanded to display height
* Not using side pane, Software Center & 2 project folders pinned (I use DockbarX pinning for apps)

 – Main window
* Shortcut key: Super_L (Windows key), starting to use it more often
* No, don’t show session buttons in bottom pane (rarely as I need them, I search)
* Yes, keep search results when Cardapio is hidden (useful also for quick notes ;)
* No, don’t open categories when cursor hovers them (incredibly distracting)

 – Panel applet
* No applet label (I’m on a 15" laptop and like it clean)
* Standard applet icon (too lazy to find out icon names ;)
* Do not open menu when cursor hovers the applet (I know, I pioneered that feature but in my current configuration it is doing more harm than good.)

 – Plugins, in order
* Pinned items
* Places menu
* Application menu
* Tracker (use it very often)
* Software Center (yay!)
* No Zeitgeist recent documents (recency is not that interesting, frequency would be)
* No Tracker full text (rarely helpful, Tracker suffices)
* No Google or other search services (browser is open all the time)
* No localized Google (using English as my system language but wouldn’t use it anyway)
* No Tomboy, Pidgin or VirtualBox (don’t use them)

 – Manual changes to config.ini
* None
