Some additions to KDE4

We are working on the next Sabayon 4.1 release and things are going well.
As you might know, this time we want to do things slightly different. Ironicly we always do things different. But this time we decided to work on 2 different DVD’s based on the previous succesfull release of liteMCE.
The G disc:
This will be allot like the liteMCE disc which features gnome as its desktopmanger.
The G disc doesn’t need much work. Since its mostly an updated packages/artwork version of liteMCE.
The K disc:
This would be the same thing as the G disc but with KDE 4.2.1 as its desktopmanager.
Now this one will take more time because we want to tackle some practical problems. We want to ship the K with the most pure KDE/Qt programs and we need to work out some of the artwork issues like GTK applications (e.g. firefox) that are looking ugly.
So i went looking and found a nice replacement for Gparted:
This package is already available in entropy. Please note that its still marked as beta and on my system it took a while before it loaded up on my screen.
Another thing we wanted to add to the K disc is a nice little program that lets you edit the grub menu and even reinstall grub in case of an emergency.
The GRUB editor program is now in entropy.
Any further suggestions are welcome.
