Would really love to see this Application come back to live.
This is one of the best Applications for screencapture. - Apr 05 2016
Please add a blur-function to hide areas in the screenshot, that shouldn't be visible by other people!
Would also be nice to save images directly to Dropbox, Google-Drive or other free Image-upload-services.

Anyway, a nice little screencapture tool. I also love Shutter, but I don't want to install all the Gnome- and Perl-Overhead on my Workstation, which shutter depends on. So your "kaption" is what I was searching for. Thanks a lot for your good work.

Looking forward for the next versions of this tool. - Jan 04 2016

Maybe this helps.
At the moment (I've upgrade to KDE5), I doesn't have any Service-Menu working.

See: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=223&t=128621 - Dec 18 2015
I don't have KDE5 at the moment. So maybe try to adjust the settings in install.sh to the new enviroment.

I don't know exactly how the settings have to be for KDE5, but I think you have to replace commands like:

kdeinstdir=`kde4-config --prefix`

or if you found KDE4 in path, replace by KDE5)...

If you got a way to optimize it for KDE5, would be great if you post it here, or send me Mail. I'll add it here to share it with other.

Sorry that I can't help you at the moment. - Nov 01 2015
Thank you for your comment. - Oct 30 2015

Please make a Dialoge-Field, where you can enter the size of the Border which should be added to the image. At the momemnt, you can only choose black or white border, but not the size! - Aug 18 2015
Would be fine, if you'll add a option, to convert an ordinary jpg to an progessive loding one. - Dec 21 2013
Befor, i still posted this Script, wich expand an image, keep ratio, and if Ratio not fit, add the background-colors to those edges are not ratio.

This was the Script, you have saved to /usr/bin/kim_spread (and make chmod +x):

If you've done, you have to add a new entry in the dolphin Service-Menu. This goes like this:

vi /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/kim_convertandrotate

Then add below the section [Desktop Action ConvCustom] your own new one:

[Desktop Action ExpandRatio]
Name=Expand Ratio ...
Name[de]=Vergrößern & Hintergrundfarbe setzen (aspect Ratio)
Icon=image
Exec=kim_spread %U;

- Dec 21 2013
And here the excatly code to spread images....

Maybe insert it as own file (kim_spread in /usr/bin/):

I need to spread an image to another size, without to resizing it.

So it can be done on this way:

1) Create a Border for the Image with same Backgroundcolor (would be fine, if your KIM-Border-Function had an inputfield to insert the size of the border!)

2) Croop the Image to the new Size

Best way, you add this new feature to your KIM Programm to make all those steps with one klick.

Click Spread-Image
>> Enter needed Image-SIZE (must bigger as actual imagesize)
>> Choose needed Color


This are the lines, which made it:
(Spread an image from 600x450 to 610x460) :

mogrify -border 500 -bordercolor "#ffffff" test.jpg

convert test.jpg -gravity Center -crop 610x460+0+0 +repage croped.jpg

I have a BUG found on KIM.
If i choose some images, right click >> Convert & rotate >> Convert for Webpages 800x600 - KIM ask me to overwrite existing files.

If i say yes... no files are changed. I have always to say no... in this case, KIM creates new files with the prefix web_


My System:
Qt: 4.7.0
KDE: 4.5.00 (KDE 4.5.0)
kde4-config: 1.0
Kubuntu 10.04 - Aug 16 2010
I use kim under SUSE 11.0 KDE4.1.2
I search some time, before i find the solution.

In KDE4.1.2 the directory for Servicemenu is NOT:
~/.kde4/services/ServiceMenus
IT IS:
~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus

after i copyed the kim*.desktop-Files to this folder, it works for me.

Thanks a lot for the german Translation and Modifications.

Cause KIM seems not maintained anymore, I've fork it and merge your Translation into it.

Maybe we can work together to make it more perfect.
I still have add one feature and have another Idea on my ToDo-List.

I love this theme, but it missing some buttons.
Now i have find out to fix this:

Create (or find) a svgz-File for the Button, and put it as keepabove.svgz into the Directory: ~/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/themes/FormaN/

Do in this way with all the Buttons you need. Here is an overwiew wich are possible:
http://techbase.kde.org/User:Mgraesslin/Aurorae#Buttons

If you're not such a good designer, search in google for the button-names like keepabove.svgz, and join the pleasure of this Buttons, I'll never want to miss.

Hi,
looks realy nice your Theme.
Maybe have a look at this one, I've created.

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/devPool_Silver-Orange?content=155678

Have you good suggestions what i could make better?

I'll give your Theme a try, if you have upload the new Version.

But it's a pitty, that some software vendors not keep on the watch about the possibility to use dark theme. Sometimes you will have some trouble to got the colors adjusted.
Even in Kmail (Kontact) i had to change the whole Color-Settling to got a usable Result.

Be glad to see some other people with dark-theme, so i hope in the Future the software-vendors will be care about this.

I have a ASUS n76vz, and try to get some FN+ Shortcuts to work.

It's good to see, that also other one work on this. So i share some link and Knowledge here.

For my ASUS on KDE, i got the LCD-Brightness working with changing Global-KDE-Shortcuts.
How i made this?

===
Open System Settings > Shortcuts & Gestures > Global Keyboard Shortcuts. Change the drop down to "KDE Daemon", and you should see "Decrease Screen Brightness" and "Decrease Screen Brighness" shortcuts which you can then configure.

There i have use META+Shift ++ F5/F6 for testing, and it works and shows up a nice osd.

So i still wonder, which OSD is here fired, and maybe, if the kbd-brightness could be fired with the same osd?!

Follow this Thread here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/108518540557377886109/posts/jmnFpwnt37T
===

And maybe have a look here on kde-aps.org at my Script, http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/ASUS+Touchpad+Toggle+OSD?content=157204 - Mar 01 2013

Hi,
i love this Icon-Design. But for Dark-Themed Desktop, its not so nice.

Would be glad, if you could add some white-Lines near the glass of the icons, so that it is well viewable on light and dark background.

Is there a way, that i could adjust the icons, and the Pulse-Sequence and color? - Sep 28 2012

Everytime a message popup in the tray, its a little bit funny, cause english and german language are mixed.

"You have 3 Sicherheitsaktualisierungen", or simlar...

Please replace "You have ..." mit "Es gibt ...".
