With a clean Firefox setup (no AddOns, clean profile, clean cache) Firefox 26 doesn't crash on my opensUSE 13.1. After adding KWallet plugin to Firefox 26 it started crashing again with segmentation fault (ony KWallet plugin, no other ones). So KWallet 2.1 plugin seems to be buggy with Firefox 26.
For now I have to remove the plugin. Hope to get an update soon :-) - Dec 21 2013
Oh, I didn't tried that. Will see if I can reproduce. - Dec 20 2013
No, my seg faults with Firefox 26 are back again. A fresh Firefox setup (clean profile, no add ons) works fine. Then I added some add-ons one by one. The KWallet plugin makes no problems at the first view. Then I added some other addons, which I have been using for a long time. Today Firefox is crashing again but I don't really know, which of my installed add-ons is the reason for the seg faults. I will go on testing with a fresh setup and only with the KWallet add-on for a while. - Dec 20 2013
After reinstalling Firefox 26 from the OBS repos and cleaning the cache files again, it seems to work now. No more segmentation faults anymore.
So the Kwallet plugin has no problems with Firefox 26. I have to say sorry for the wrong alarm.

Hi Gmolina.
I'm a long time user of your KWallet Firefox plugin on KDE. It's a very usefull piece of software, thank you for making that possible.
With Firefox 26 the plugin seems to be broken. When starting Firefox with activated Kwallet plugin, Firefox crashes right after starting with Signal Segmentation Fault (11). Even with a clean KDE user profile, when activating KWallet plugin, Firefox still crashes. When I disable the plugin, everthing works fine.
Is there s.th special with Firefox 26 or do you plan to release an updated plugin? I'm using openSUSE 13.1/KDE 4.11+4.12/Kwallet plugin v2.1.
Thank you, bb. - Dec 19 2013

Yes, please, this project needs new developers who continue or start a new beginning. The best thing would be a complete state of the art code rewrite on Qt 5 basis or better on Frameworks 5 basis. A state of the art note taking application like BNP would be so great. No Microsoft OneNote or KJots anymore.
Dreaming of it since years...

Hi, is Basket Note Pads currently unmaintained?
Last entry on the dev mailing list (sourceforge) is of Nov 2011. Will there be a final 2.0 or is it stuck? Who knows anything?

Does anyone know something about the current developement status?

The last news update on the basket website was from 2010-03-23.

Check it out:
http://basket.kde.org

I wonder, cause there is only one news entry about a 2.0 release.

"We hope to release version 2.0 within a few months."

Is there still any developement in progress?

Thank you, your workaround is fine and fits my needs. Will the expandFileList command come back in a future version? - Dec 07 2013
Hi Urs.
I'm controlling Kid3 via. DBus calls from some scripts. Example: For selecting all files I use this command: "qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 selectAll". That works nice. My problem is, in a former Kid3 2.x version (i'm now using 3.0.2) there was a Dbus function "expandAll" to expand the directory tree in Kid3. I used this in a shell script: "qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /kid3/MainWindow_1 expandFileList". The Dbus Method "epandFileList" isn't there anymore. With qdbusviewer I found a method called "expandDirectory", but it doesn't work.
Can you tell me, how and what DBus-Function I have to call to expand the directory tree?
Thx in advance.
Kai

- Dec 04 2013
Hi Urs,
thanks for the information. Normally I do it that way: First convert the tags to ID3v2.4 and then apply text encoding. Sometimes I forget this.

I used qdbusviewer to find out the calls that fit my needs. I created a script and assigned it to a hotkey. That works perfect for me. So that's a good workaround. Please take a look:

qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /kid3/MainWindow_1 expandFileList
qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 selectAll
qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 convertToId3v24
qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 applyTextEncoding
qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 setTagFromOtherTag 1
qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 save
qdbus net.sourceforge.kid3 /Kid3 createPlaylist

I'm not familiar with dbus, so one question:
Related to dbus, is it ensured that all calls are not performed concurrently? I mean, will the calls in my script be performed in Fifo-Order, even if there is a call, which need more time to be finished than other calls?

- May 05 2013
Hi Urs, please let me give you two suggestions:

1)
I configured Kid3 to use UTF-8 for text encoding. When I tag mp3-files, I allways execute the function "Apply Text Encoding" in Tools menu for all files in the filelist after loading them. So it would be phantastic, if Kid3 would automatically "Apply Text Encoding" after opening new files or a directory. Perhaps this could be realized by adding a new menu entry in settings menu(perhaps under "# Auto Hide Tags") with a checkbox (e.g. # Auto Apply Text Encoding). If it is checked, Kid3 automatically applies text encoding to all files in the file list after loading them. That would save a lot of extra clicks if all tags should have the same text encoding, like UTF-8 for example.

2)
The same is for "Convert ID3v2.3 to ID3v2.4" and vice versa. I open a directory with some files. Each file could have a different ID3 version. At first I allways apply text encoding. Then I convert the tags to ID3v2.4. It would be great, when there would be a new menu-entry in the settings menu, where you can choose between "Auto Convert Tags to v2.3" and "Auto Convert Tags to v2.4" after loading new files.

I think it would be usefull and the user can configure it for his needs by enabling or diabling the auto funtions in the settings-menu.

Could you imagine to implement these two functions? I know, that you don't like it, that Kid3 would manipulate data without the intervention of the user. But Kid3 wouldn't change files on the HDD without saving changes by the user. So think of this as a suggestion from a long time Kid3 user. Thanks :-)

It seems to be taglib, maybe the rusxmms patch. I put in a new bug report for openSuse 12.3.

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=814814

Thx for ur support !
- Apr 11 2013
Hi, thx for fast reply.

1)
I made a little screencast, uploaded to youtube. Please take a look.

http://youtu.be/XoAW1zmgSKA
(please adjust quality)

2)
In addition to my screencast I tried this:
I created 3 mp3 files in my screencast. When I load them with easytag, the title for all 3 files is fine. When I load the files into Amarok, only the id3lib-file is fine. The other 2 have a broken title.

So I still have problems with umlauts and don't know why. Only ID3v2.3 (id3lib) works for me.

Maybe a Kid3 problem? You have any ideas? :-)
- Apr 10 2013
System: openSuse 12.3 (x86-64) / KDE 4.10.2
Kid3-Version: 2.3-30.1
TagLib-Version: 1.8.3-2.1
id3lib-Version: 3.8.3-256.1.2

My Kid3 settings for Tag2:
Text encoding: UTF8
Version used for new tags: ID3v2.4.0 (TagLib)

I got some problems with the German "Umlaute" in the tag fileds.
[Umlaute means e.g. "äÄöÖüÜß", for people not speaking German]

Until today I processed all my mp3-files with Kid3. Each time I opened a new mp3 file or an album-folder with Kid3, I first converted the tags to ID3v2.4 using the tools menu (Tools/Convert ID3v2.3 to ID3v2.4) before I finally edited all the tag. After saving the tags everything looked pretty good. But now I noted that many tag-fields of some mp3-files with "Umlaute" in it are corrupted.

So tagging mp3-files with ID3v2.4.0 (TagLib) results in broken "Umlaute". No matter what I do, all "Umlaute" get broken. But for a long time before it worked (last week I switched to from openSuse 12.2 to 12.3)

The only way to get correct "Umlaute" is:
1. Switch settings to ID3v2.3.0 (id3lib)
2. Execute Tools/Convert ID3v2.4 to ID3v2.3
3. Edit the corrupted tag fileds and manually correct the "Umlaute"
After saving the changes all "Umlaute" are correct.

Question:
What's the problem here? Is it a problem with ID3v2.4 (TagLib) library? Or maybe UTF-8?

Shouldn't I generally use ID3v2.4.0(TagLib) with Kid3 and sould better make use of ID3v2.3.0(id3lib)?

Please tell me. Thx, Kai.
- Apr 10 2013
Maybe there is another bug and one other question:

KDE SC v4.5.2, Kid3 v1.5, UTF-8, ID3V2.4

I often want to clean the comment tag. So I want the field to be empty. But it's not possible to erase the content of the comment field.

Example:
The comment tag is e.g. set to 'test' for all tracks. After selecting all tracks, I click into the comment field and make the field empty (''), this means completely empty, even no spaces. Then I click the checkbox left to the field to apply the changes to all selected tracks. After saving the changes, the comment filed has still 'test' in it.

The other way is also not possible:
After selecting all tracks with 'test' in the comment tag, I select the comment field and click on delete button after that. Then the comment field is completely empty. But after I save the changes, the original content of the comment field is back again.

So it is not possible to make the content field completely empty. The only way is to put at least one space in it. I tried other tag software and it is possible to erase the comment field completely.

Is that behavior intended in Kid3 or is it a bug?


Another question is:

Is it possible for you (I'm sure :-)), to add an option, that the loaded tracks will automatically be converted to a specified tag format (ID3v2.3 or v2.4)? So that Kid3 e.g. converts all tracks automatically to ID3v2.4 (like the convert function in tools, only that Kid3 would do it by default).

Thanks !!!! - Oct 08 2010
Urs, thank you very much for your support !

Till now, I didn't knew that you can have more digits by using .x in %{track.x} to produce a desired filename format with x digits. So you're right that padding the track numbers with zeros is not necessary to produce a filename format with a defined number of digits. Great. I try to compile the svn version with the kid3.spec file from openSUSE Source RPM.

But an enhanced "track number" dialog would be great.

So again, thx a lot.
- Oct 03 2010
Thanks for your feedback. Yes, I use ID3v2.4.0 together with UTF8. I tried to compile the source from Subversion under KDE 4.5.1, but I have some issues with kde-config (it's not there in 4.5.x)... So I wait for the next version of Kid3.

The implementation of a function to apply the number-format would be very cool. Good to hear, that you will think about it :-)

BTW: There is another thing you can think about. I try do describe it:

The tracknumber is stored in the tracknumber field, extended with a "/" character and a numeric string containing the total number of tracks on the original recording (example): tracknumber="11/14". Kid3 displays this as "Track Number 11/14" in the Tag2 list. In this case "11" is the tracknumber of the current selected track and "14" is the total number of tracks. Last value should be identical for each track of one medium, e.g. one CD. The problem is, there is only one edit field in Kid3 for both values.
Consider this case:
You load an already tagged mp3-Album. It's a double CD. CD1 has 11 tracks, CD2 has 14 tracks. It is tagged like this:
All tracks are tracknumberd from 01 to 25. The tracknumber-field is stored like this: 01/25, 02/25, 03/25, ..., 25/25. Some people tag double CDs in this way. But what, if you want to retag such an album in another way?
Maybe this could be the destination: For the files from CD1: tracknumber=01/11, 02/11, ..., 11/11. CD2: tracknumber=01/14, 02/14, ..., 14/14. To make this happen, you have to change the total number of tracks for each file. With Kid3 this could only be done by manually editing the tracknumber-field, just because there is no separate edit-field for the total number of tracks value.

Possible solution:
1)
There should be a way to set/change the total number of tracks for all selected or loaded files, without manually editing the tracknumber-field for each file separately . To resolve this, a separate edit-field for the "total number of tracks" could be introduced.
2)
In your last post, you wrote, that you think about implementing a function to apply the number format. That's great. But also think on the total number of tracks value in this case. Example:
The above mentioned digits in tracknumber (new option in 1.5) sould also be applied to the "total number of tracks" value.
Consider a CD with 8 tracks, tagged like this: tracknumber=1/8, 2/8, ..., 8/8. In the Kid3 settings you may specify the "track number digits = 2". So if you add e.g. an apply-button for the number-format, all tracks in this album will be stored this way: tracknumber=01/8, 02/8, ..., 08/8". But this would be better: "01/08, 02/08, ..., 08/08".
Can't wait to hear, what you think about it.

Hi Urs,

1)
I tried your steps, but with same result. Still no effect like v6lur has confirmed.

Example:

I loaded an already tagged mp3-file with tracknumber-field set to "1". Then I select the track in the track list by clicking Edit/Select All. Now I click into the tracknumber-field and delete this field. Then Tools/Number Tracks, Start number: 1, Destination: Tag 2, OK
After that the track has the same tracknumber "1" with only one digit instead of "01" with 2 digits.

The option doesn't work. Or we still dont't understand how the option is working.

2)
Another idea for the option "digits in tracknumber"

The automatic numbering with the pre-defined number of digits in the settings is fine, when it works :-) But how I understand you, it should only work, when the tacknumber-field is empty or has been deleted before launching the numbering option. So your option only works with new or empty tracknumber-fields. It does not convert already existing tracknumber-fields with 1 digit in the tracknumber to 2 digits, right?

At this time Kid3 has a "numbering option" for the tracknumber-field. The only not working thing on that is the number of digits configured in the settings. You say it works, but on my system it does not.

Nevertheless there should be a second function in Kid3:

Example:
I want all my tracks stored with 2 digits in the tracknumber field. After I finished tagging, I change the filename-format of the loaded tracks to (example): "01 - AcDc - Thunderstruck.mp3", based on the content of the id3-tags.
So it would be nice, when all tracks from one album have the same number of digits in the tracknumber-field. But many albums are already tagged and for these albums I would like Kid3 to convert the tracknumber-field to a fixed number of digits (tracks with "2" should be "02"), without deleting and renumbering the tracknumber-field before.

So this would be nice:
There could be an additional button of menu-entry in tools. After clicking this button or launching this function, Kid3 reads the content of the tracknumber-field and converts the tracknumber to the number of digits specified in the settings. Example: tracknumber "3" to "03". When the tracknumber-field is empty or not present, nothing should be done.

When I retag mp3-files, I always have to change the tracknumber-field manually, or I have to use another tagging software like easytag for that. This is the most missing function in kid3 for me.

What do you think?
- Sep 28 2010
Hi, thx for Kid3, the best KDE tagging tool...

Maybe I found one bug:

kid3 - Version 1.5
Option to set number of digits in track number.

This doesn't work for me.

Example:

I opened an already tagged mp3-album with kid3 v1.5. It has a total of 15 tracks. The tracknumbers are stored as follows: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, ..., 15
So the tracknumber of track 1-9 is stored with only one digit. The track above 10 with 2 digits.

I would like to store the tracknumber with 2 digits, like Version 1.5 should do: 01, 02, 03, ..., 15

I use kid3 v1.5 on KDE SC 4.5.1 (openSuse 11.3) with the following kid3 settings: UTF-8, ID3v2.4,0 (TagLib), number of digits in tracknumber: 2

kid3 doesn't store the tracknumber with 2 digits, even if it is set to 2. I tried to set it to 3 digits. But that doesn't affect the tracknumber field.

Until now, I used esaytag for that and was glad to see, that kid3 has this feature now, too. When I load the above mentioned mp3-files with easytag (tracknumber 1,2, ..., 15), the tracknumber-filed will automatically be converted to the number of digits (e.g. 2) specified in the easytag options. You only have to click on save to make these changes persistent. The tracknumber-field has then 2 digits. As I understand, Kid3 Version 1.5 should do the same way.

I hope you can fix v1.5, to make this option work... That would be great !!!

Keep on your good work.

Hi Xavier.
That would be perfect. Thank you.
One thing to mention: Sometimes Kwooty doesn't extract rar files, even if parity check was Ok. I try do reproduce that and send you a test file later. Nevertheless, great piece of Software.
Chers, Kai - May 05 2013
Hi Xavier.

I'm very grateful for your application. So thanks a lot again for this great piece of KDE software and your time you invest into.

I have a little note on startup behavier:

When KWooty starts, it always tries to connect to a news-server, even if there are no pending downloads (empty list). Normally this isn't a big deal. But in my scenario it isn't comfortable. Why:

All my password are stored with KWallet and the wallet is protected by a master password. After KDE login, Kwooty starts automatically minimized to tray. Now it tries to open the wallet to retrieve the password to connect to a news-server. So a dialog box comes up to enter the master password, even if there are no pending downloads. So what I mean, why does Kwooty always tries to connect to a server, even if there are no pending downloads?
Optimized behavior: Kwooty should start minimized to tray but without connecting to a server, when there are no pending downloads. So you don't always have to enter the wallet password each time Kwooty starts up.

What do you think about this ? :-)

Cheers, Kai
- Apr 06 2013
Hello Xavier,

on KDE startup Kwooty starts with open main window on the Desktop.

Can you fix it, that Kwooty starts minimized to system tray on KDE startup? I allways have to minimize the window to system tray manually on each KDE startup... Currently I use KDE 4.9.1, but I think/remember, that Kwooty started minimized in earlier versions.

Thats my big wish :-) Maybe you find some time...

Cheers, Kai

Hi Xavier.
Thx for your reply. Saving the pausing state would be great. I'm happy, cheers :-)

I found two other issues.

In settings dialog - Programs/Priority
There you can configure the process priority for verify/par and for unpacking. You can set the priority to low, lowest or user defined from +1 to +19.

First thing:
Kwooty doesn't allow values from 0 to -19. So negative values are not possible to configure. Is it possible that you can allow values between -19 and 19 for verfify and unpacking?

Second thing: I try to explain:
In the settings dialog you set the user defined priority to a nice value of (for example) +5. Now you start a 30GB (for example) download job (300 rar files). After download has finished kwooty starts verifying and unpacking the files with the former specified process priority +5. During this operation you decide to change to priotity to another value. You go back to settings dialog and change the user defined process priority from +5 to another vaule, for example to +19 and click apply. When you check the processes (in console with top command), you see the nice index of par and unrar haven't changed to +19. Instead the nice index still remains at +5.
So a priority change should also apply to already started jobs. if you change the process priority during a running task, kwooty should also update the nice index of the corresponding process. Is that possible to realize?

Cheers again....

Many thanks for the fixes in 0.7.3.
Great work. I've one issue:
You quit Kwooty after you've paused some jobs and then you restart Kwooty again, then Kwooty continues the jobs instead of still pausing them. Or you pause some jobs and logout from your desktop session. When you login back, the jobs should still be paused. So what I wanna say: Kwooty should remember the state, if jobs are paused or not.

Maybe you find the time to integrate it in a future version.

Thx a lot Xavier :-) - Dec 07 2011
Hi Marcs.

I can't confirm that. The watch-folder plugin works perfectly for me (openSuse 11.3/KDE 4.5.3/Kwooty 0.6) and I never had problems before with the watch-folder plugin. When I manually save/copy a .nzb file to my watch-folder, it will be enqued in kwooty. It works really nice. But remember, it only works when kwooty was started before.

Beside the watch-folder plugin, this also works fine: When I download a nzb file (e.g. via firefox), I can choose to open it with kwooty. Then it will be automatically enqued in kwooty.

May I ask u a stupid question: Did you really not forget to activate the plugin (marked checkbox)?

Another thing: Try to delete the whole kwooty config-files:
Quit kwooty and delete this:
~/.kde4/share/apps/kwooty/*
~/.kde4/share/config/kwootyrc
Then restart kwooty and try again.

Maybe your KDE SC is outdated?

Xavier, thank you very much for this great new release. No better nzb app out there...

But maybe I found a little bug:

There is an issue with the Kwallet integration. After updating to 0.6 I activated the feature "store passwords with Kwallet" in Kwooty's connection settings. I also configured Kwooty to remain in system tray, so it will be loaded automatically on KDE start.

On the first view, everything seems to work fine. Kwooty was loaded on KDE start (minimized to system tray). But sometimes (not always) when I open Kwooty's settings after a period of time, the following error message appears:

"No running Kwallet found. Passwords will be saved in plaintext."

I think the problem is:

When my wallet is open (wallet symbol in system tray), Kwooty doesn't create the error message. Now, waiting a period of time, the wallet will be closed automatically. When I then enter Kwooty settings, Kwooty tries to access the wallet, which was auto closed before. Kwooty can't access the wallet and does not reopen the wallet again and finally produces the error message. The checkbox in the Kwooty settings will be disabled automatically in some cases.
When I close the wallet manually by using the wallet manager (close all wallets function), then Kwooty also produces the error message.

Sollution: Kwooty should reopen the wallet, if it is closed.

But you should know it better :-)

A second thing:

Before I upgraded to 0.6 the password for the server was stored in the Kwooty config file in plaintext. After upgrading to 0.6, I activated the Kwallet support for Kwooty. Then Kwooty stores the password in the wallet. But the password in plaintext is still remaining in the config file. Activating the Kwallet support should auto remove any password from the config file. Otherwise the use of the wallet system doesn't make sense.

Thanks again.

Hi Xavier.

0.5 works excellent, thank you very much.

Μaybe one thing:

When I click the option "Show system tray icon" then kwooty minimizes to system tray when closing the main window.

When I logout and login in again, kwooty is still in the system tray. That's fine, the behaviour is e.g. like kmail. But after a login the main window of kwooty gets opened everytimė.

It would be nicę when kwooty remains in the system tray without opening the main windows after each login. I mean the application should start minimized to system tray without opening the main window.

Thats an idea, maybe for next release.

Thanks again.

I'm sure, future releases will be great.
Can't wait for it...

And:

6)
Better job control.
At the moment, you can only move one job to the top or bottom of the list.
There should be two more buttons in the toolbar, to move one job one position up/down in the job list.
Maybe moving the jobs with the mouse would be nice to.

I love Kwooty. It's an KDE killer application, a very excellent replacement for klibido, which I've been using a for long time.

Kwooty is the best nzb grabber at the moment. And the best thing on it is: it's an KDE 4 application, not GTK/Gnome. That rocks.

I hope, you will continue in developing it.

I've some suggestions for you:

1)
Minimize to systemtray with an icon that shows the total download status in percent (similar to kmail's system tray icon which shows the number of new incoming mails). When hoovering with the mouse over the icon, a tooltip could show more detailed informations about the download status.

2)
Use of kwallet to store login/password instead of using kwooty config files.

3)
Sometimes the extracting/verify processes makes my system a little bit slow. Maybe it could help to start the extraction/verify process with a different nice value. There could be an option in the kwooty settings, where you can specify a nice value for extraction/verify. Each time an extraction process gets started, it will be executed with that nice value.

4)
More plasma integration, maybe a plasmoid that shows the current download status and that can control kwooty, like pause/continue download.

5) Make use of the general KDE system notification system, e.g. when a download in the download list is finished and completely extracted, then the KDE notification system could inform the user.

And again, thanks for kwooty.

but here are the good news:

There is a new project called "kwooty"

It's the best nzb grabber in the linux world at the moment. Many features and the best thing: the author is going to improve it more and more, so future versions are planned.

It works perfectly and it fully replaces klibido. So trust me and give it a try.
