install failed here too. first i should edit install.sh and give full path to kde-config and kdialog. then there is something wrong with kdialog part and I replaced it with:

Type=${1} ${2} $3}

for 1=intall; 2=1+plugins and 3=uninstall

now everthing works with:
./install.sh 3 && ./install.sh 2

checked so far flash slideshow, seems must keep in mind that works good only with landscape images.

kim adds 5 items to the 'action' menu list which seems a bit much for a single service menu addon. Maybe you could consider a single kim menu with sub menus

Yes, I agree but I don't know how to create submenus in service-menus. If someone knows how to do this ...

It works fine on any version of KDE as far as I tested it. I have used it on KDE 3.4.3 through 3.5.0 so far... no problem with it ;)

I've made an unofficial package of Kim for Ubuntu. They can be installed using my repository :

deb http://raphink.free.fr/packages ./
deb-src http://raphink.free.fr/packages ./

Thank you very much for this nice piece of software :) Just a comment though. I use UTF-8 on a Kubuntu machine, and I don't get the French accents when using Kim in Konqueror. Could you have a look at this bug? Thanks :)

Hi,
yesterday I couldn't install your soft. I found the reason:on your script you use the kdeinstdir variable. On my debian this variable donesn't exist. So I have to do this command:

kdeinstdir=`kde-config --prefix`

on root before beginning the install and now it works. Perrhaps you could add this in your script or add a verification of the existence of the variable for the newbie which doesn't go to modify a script.
Thanks for this very useful service menus.

I can hardly wait to see how this handy little tool evolves. I can see great simple things in the future for this app.

Good work, well done you!

On my Debian I have libmpeg2-4 - mpeg2dec & gstreamer mpeg2dec but the "Screen movie recorder" always generate a 0k mpeg :/

for me it's a great menu, I use it from much time, with much pleasure, but it would be great to use it in all its potentialities:)

your tool is very handy and I use it a lot. I would be great if you could add some features in the "images in pdf" function.

e.g.:
- images covering the full extent of the pdf
- images covering just the left half and metainfos are displayed on the right half of the pdf

thanks for this nifty program!

Hey, this is a great app...but how can I use it with some keyboard shortcuts ? I want to add watermark and make screenshots of windows....

Do you have a manual or something ?

Thanks for help in advance!

Hello,
You can call all Kim functions from a console. For example, if you want to make an animated screenshot, call "kim_record" in a shell !
However, for the moment, all functions do not have the form "kim_name-of-function". The major parts have the old form "kimgsm_name-of-function" !
Here is the list of Kim function available in a shell:
kimgsm_flipflop kimgsm_rotate kimgsm_rename
kimgsm_multiburst kimgsm_treatment kim_record
kimgsm_album kimgsm_other kimgsm_webexport
kimgsm_compress kimgsm_resize kim_record_mpg
kimgsm_convert kimgsm_resizeandsend

i can not install it within my user account );
I had to intall it as root, what I do not really like as it is not (currently) part of my distro.

but I really enjoy it anyway
A more customizable intall could just make it better

thanks for the hard work

Yes, it is possible to install Kim in user mode. For this, you must copy all Kim's files in ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/.

I think that I will add soon this option in the install script.

Good use,

Charles

At least converting to JPEG silently fails in a directory with a space in its name.

In kwavencoder I use this kind of loop to avoid this:

until [ -z "$1" ]
do
command $1
shift
done
