Hi,

I'd like to try mateedit, but I can't even start it on my Kubuntu Edgy.

Output from the shell is:
StartDialogBase::setProperty( "sizeGripEnabled", value ) failed: property invalid, read-only or does not exist

Any ideas?

Hi,
compiling mateedit-0.2 using gcc-4.0.2, libqt3c-3.3.3, libqt3-mt-dev-3.3.4 (on current ubuntu breezy), i got:

message.h:183: error: ‘QBuffer’ has not been declared

I could easily fix it by inserting
#include
into message.h

Thanks for a promising app! (wanted to implement such a thing for myself)

There is an non-kde application like this which is VERY fast. It's called Moonedit; but I haven't had the chance to test it in reality yet.

Google for it.

I think syntax hightlighting would be absolutely marvelous. Maybe the Kate editor component could be used, but dunno. I was looking for something similar for ages! Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your suggestion. I have already started looking into it, but time is limited at the moment. Things will definetely happen in that direction, they just might take some time.

I think it would be even nicer not to integrate the Kate editor part in MateEdit, but the other way round! Make MateEdit a plugin for the Kate KPart and you have pair programming for free in KDevelop ;-)

That's a great idea... on the one hand, it should be accessible from programms like kopete, kmail (send invitation by mail), on the other hand, it should be usable through editors like kate, kwrite etc.... so the best would be a library/plugin to achieve this.

Greetings

this is great, absolutely, but it lacks quite some integration... couldn't you make a plugin or addon or patch for kopete? or integrate it in kontact? if you are planning to do so, well, don't mind me and don't listen, I didn't say anything :D

Thank you for your comment. I had thought about integrating it into Kopete, just haven't gotten around to it yet. What sort of integration did you have in mind though? If you could tell me a bit more about how you think it should be integrated that would be great

well,
I dont know how you exactly implemented this, but if its a seperate 'protocol' I think you can add it to kopete (just like there are aim, irc, msn etc). but it'd be even better if it could work upon existing protocols, like msn or icq. so the users can simply open this drawer and start working together. maybe add painting too, maybe with kolourpaint, so they can work together on something like that. and maybe rich-text edit etc?

I imagine people can work on a application (EVERY application) together while talking in their mic's :D

Would be cool for kde 4.0...

Thanks for sharing those ideas.

Yes, MateEdit uses it's own protocol. This is quite simple at this stage (user joins, user leaves, chat message, insert operation, and delete operation), but I am sure additional operations will follow.

Kopete integration with sharing chat messages via any protocol could be done. Instead of drawers, I think "dragging" people into a MateEdit session would be the way to go.

Painting is really something different as the current algorithm and the protocol work on text only.

Rich-text could be achieved as well, but would add complexity.

I think though that for all applications to be collaborative more developers are needed. But I like the idea :) So if you are keen, join the team ;)
