This is a developpement version not yet ready to be published.
For the adventurous, rpm packages can be build using the SystemImager_fc27.dockerfile (build works for CentOS-6, CentOS-7, Fedora-27 and OpenSuSE-42.3 (just tweak the dockerfile)

Despite the fact that the ChangLog says it now compile again for KDE 3.2, it seems that it's not true.
The configure script search for makekdewidgets which is a script that appeared in KDE 3.3.0 if I'm correct.
Is there a specific option to configure script to circumvent this problem?


The error:
checking for makekdewidgets... not found
configure: error: The important program makekdewidgets was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

My Distribution: Mandrake 10.1 / KDE 3.2.3 / gcc 3.4

Anyway, this app look realy cool despite the fact I'm stuck to V 0.3.1

BTW: Is there a backup phonebook / restore to another phone feature in 0.4.1? - Feb 02 2005
your device line seems wrong: the address of the device has 6 numbers not 5.

Also check that bluetooth service is started (and corectly setup. It's good to setup a computer name instead of bluez(%d %h))

if you start kbluetootd, you should see a message stating that a bluetooth controler has been found.

My config file looks like this:

rfcomm0 {
# Automatically bind the device at startup
bind no;

# Bluetooth address of the device
device 00:0a:28:da:e3:fe;

# RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 1;

# Description of the connection
comment "V600";
} - Sep 09 2004
Replying with RTF is far from being user attractive when there is actualy nothing about bluetooth except "Any phone having modem functions and a serial converter" (which is not obvious for everybody).

More over, I think that the bluetooth stuff must definitely be handled by your program (at least V1.0) using kbluetoothd. Indeed, without this feature, the user as to type wired commands in a root shell which greatly reduce the user friendlyness of your tool.

Regarding bluettoth connection, here is how to proceed:
For the 1st time:
- make your phone bluetooth visible
- as any user type in a shell:
hcitool scan
- identify your phone
- as root, edit /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
and in the rfcomm0 section, change device address (discovered by the hcitool scan) and give a name to your device in the comment field (example: my_phone).
=> That's all for the config

Then at any time you want to connect your phone:
- make your phone bluetooth visible
- as root in a shell type the command:
rfcomm connect my_phone

and then, to use kmobiletools, use the /dev/bluetooth/rfcomm/0 device

BTW it works perfectly with my Motorola V600 and CKPD dial system.

Anyway, this app is definitely great :-) and looks realy promising.

It Woiuld be so great to have Hugin and Enbled features added to digikam.

Enblend:
Enblend is a tool for compositing images. Given a set of images that overlap in some irregular way, Enblend overlays them in such a way that the seam between the images is invisible, or at least very difficult to see. Enblend does not line up the images for you. Use a tool like Hugin to do that.
http://enblend.sourceforge.net/

Hugin:
An easy to use cross-platform panoramic imaging toolchain based on Panorama Tools. With hugin you can assemble a mosaic of photographs into a complete immersive panorama, stitch any series of overlapping pictures and much more.
http://hugin.sourceforge.net/

Panorama Tools:
The cross-platform library behind Panorama Tools and many other GUI photo stitchers

Your app is realy wonderfull, and I waited for a long time to have distro replacement of admin tools like this in the kontrole center.

Unfortunately, I think that while it make sense to a sysadmin to have an X configurator, for the end user, its a big mess and he'll get completely lost between kde kbd config, display properties, mouse configuration and your module. Indeed, tere will be 2 places to configure resolution: one for Xorg modes and one for Desktop size which is confusing for the user especialy if the panels are at 2 different places.

A gret thing (IMHO) would be to merge Display properties and some device into you panel, or explode your panel under the device subtree. some part would require root priviledges while other wouldn't.
Example, to fix the above example of screen resolution, you would have a panel: configure screens and a panel configure desktop. (just an idea, the aim is to reduce confusion between Xorg resolution configuration and desktop resolution configuration).

Anyway, great start. :-) - Aug 01 2006
With such tool, it'll be less difficult waiting for a coherent Xorg config file.
I'm dreaming about Xorg using /etc/sysconfig files for its config; reading keyboard from /etc/sysconfig/keyboard, probing videocard, probing monitor resolution using DDC, probing mice, and only using a config file for specific unhandled/not probable stuffs.

But thats a dream, and in the meantime, your tool is more than welcome. Especialy for xinerama/dual head configs. - May 11 2006

I have one 90min CD that is broken due to suddent power outage at the very beginning of the burning process.
The CD is now seen as a non writable CD.
Of course, eventhough my DVD burner has a burnproof feature, it had no time to put sync marck on the media so it could continue burning process later.

I've heard of some tools to fix thoses type of broken CD by forcing to write an "end session" so you can again append data to the CD?

Do you plan to add this type of feature to k3b? Do you know of any linux software that would do that? (I've read cdrecord, and friends, and the only thing I'v found is some info in TODO files ;-)

I'd realy like to avoid installing windows and a software that has this feature just to recover my 90minutes 99.9% empty CD-R. - May 31 2006

while it could make sens in a way, it is IMHO bad in the long term as there would be less competition (just like on windows where a simple smiley is a shareware and there is few inovation).

More over, dristro have different components maturity and it would cause compatibility problems (not same kernel version, not same glibc version, ...)

And Finaly, despite there is LSB (Linux Standard Base), many distro have their onw way to configure the system. Even with RPM, each rpm based distro have it's ouwn rpm macros and such (just like MS who has its own CSS tags when saving a word document to HTML)

Nevertheless, LSB is aiming to expand stadard among distro, and freedesktop standard may integrate (if not yet) future release of LSB.

In the end you may not be able to install mandriva rpm on a debian (easily), but that's not a problem as all components will be packaged on all distro and behave the same way from the user point of view. - May 11 2006
Why so many photo albums with som many kick ass features?

Each of them have their own wonderful feature but lack some others. (some can find similar photos, some can search photo from a quick drawing, some can do some batch processing, some have unique treatment features, some have nice look, some can interact with mail clients, some can have vistual folders, some can exploit exif information for virtual folders, but none has all of thoses. digikam is one having a lot of them, but is far from having all).

digiKam is IMHO a wonderfull photo album software with plugins and great community. Why not adding your kick ass feature to this project and make digikam the best prog ever in this domain instead of reinventing the wheel each time and adding a feature to it.

Nevertheless, congratulation for your softqware, KDE needs talentuous programmers like you. - May 10 2006

Instead of creating albums from scratch, could you add an option to create an album from a directory.

Juste like digikam does. It's pretty convenient way to quickly switch to you app if needed.

Indeed, most of people testing your app have already a collection of photo albums often organized as directories and subdirectories. Having the above functionality would greatly help. - Mar 16 2005
Please add support for KDE integration (even if it remains an option so non KDE users can still use it without loading extraneous libs).

I'm realy missing KDE File dialog box with bookmarks previews and left shortcuts icons.

Support for digikamimage-plugins and kipi-plugins would be cool too.

to create packages for any distro:

tar xvfj kconfigure-2.0.tar.bz2
cd kconfigure-2.0
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install
kconfigure
enable checkinstall
(example for Mandrake:
/usr/bin/checkinstall --pkgarch=i586 --pkgrelease=1mdk)
select configure script
configure
make
install as root
install package. It will overwrite the files installed in /usr by make install and then you'll be able to depollute you system in case you want to remove kconfigure. - Jan 07 2005
Why not add some specific distro flags in the configuration.
example: checkinstall flags for Mandrake would be: --pkgarch=i586 --pkgrelease=1mdk

Increasing pkgrelease at each build would be cool too.

Having the hability to join post/pre:un/install script would be cool.

An excellent thing would also to be able to chose the group.
example: in Mandrake http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/howtos/mdk-rpm/mdk-rpm.html#MDK-GROUPS
groups are not the same as RedHat. Having a dropdown menu would help to chose correct values.

Having the ability to check for dependancies would be great too (looking at "checking for" lines during configure phase, search fo the stuff, locate package containing it and create the Requires: line) (very HARD imho but feasable).
An other option would be to propose Require fields.

Or better: juste befor install, open a fill'in form with missing fields like packager, URL, Requires, ....
that would be just like a print dialog.
=> Doing a dialog box analog to a print dialog with fields to fill in before realy create the package would be awesome :-)

Finaly the ability to also generate the SRPM would greatly help as it would allow to tweak it :-)

Anyway, V2.0 is already awesome :-) - Jan 07 2005

A "google like" tool bar is definitely a MUST for Konq, nevertheless, I think that by now search feature becomes fuzzy in the konq interface:
Indeed, you have:
- web shortcuts
- konq search combo
- your toolbar.

What would be realy GREAT would be to remasterize the whole thing with ONE full featured search tool natively integrated.

Example: in Konq prefs, you could say: I'm using shortcuts, so I disable the search specifi fields, but I realy want the buttons to be displayed so I can highlight the searched words.

Such an integration would reduce a lot redundancy (search engines prefs and so) and increase ergonomy a lot.

kdebluetooth-0.0.cvs20040302-3mdk.i586.rpm from Mandrake 10.0 runs perfectly with my Motorola V600 Cellphone on my DELL D600 laptop.

The version of this software does not reflect the quality of this software which is far better that it sound like.

I think V1.0 would be more appropriate as I've not been able to find any problem wile using it up to now.

In order to make things work I did:
- installed bluez packages
- changed name in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
- restarted bluetooth
- installed kdebluetooth

nothing more and it worked perfectly :-) - Jul 06 2004

I don't blame you, in the contrary, I congratulate you for your fabulous work.
Thanks to guys like you, the KDE community can enjoy some fabulous artworks.

I'm just sad that the license (that you're not responsible for) prevent users in a company to enjoy this artwork on their desktop.

The drawback of such a licence is that it may never get included in a general distribution and get only a marginal diffusion (limited to kdelook visitors)

Anyway, it clear that anybody is free to decide what one can do with the result of his hard work, and I strongly respect this choice.

In the RPM, I've put the following header. Do you think it is apropriate?

Vendor: Norbalin
License: Restricted
Summary: Umicons 2.0 Icons set.
Packager: Olivier Lahaye
URL: http://Mattahan.Web1000.com

%description
The Umicons 2.0 Icons from Mattahan ported to KDE by Norbalin!
Many thanks goes to mattahan for his agreement to convert this icons for Linux/KDE!!!

PS: The SPEC RPM and SRPM have not been spreaded and will not be until I have the authoristion of course.

PPS: On the KDElook sumup, the License says "read the readme". Thus I was obliged to download it before reading the readme...

Best regards. - Oct 16 2003
I was trying to create a Mandrake Package for use inside my company.
I did not find any "README" file and started the package creation.
After finishing the RPM and testing install I've discovered the "readme damnit!!!.txt" and sadly discovered that companies are not welcome to use these icons....
So I stoppped immediately my idea to deploy it for my users in order to respect the licence.

Anyway, now I have a spec file and instead of removing it I think it would be a more intelligent idea to contribut it to the communitiy.

My question is: how do I contribute to it. (how can I publish it on this site as a contrib to Umicons instead of creating a new entry that could be seen in a bad way by the author)

PS: of course I won't spend my company time for packaging next versions of this icon-set as I'm not allowed to use it in return.

Regards. - Oct 15 2003
