Score 64%
Description:

Cdcat is graphical (QT based) multiplatform (Linux / Windows / OS/X / OS/2) catalog program which scans the directories/drives you want and memorize the filesystem /including the tags of mp3's/ and store it in a small file.
The database is stored in a gzipped XML format, so you can hack it, or use it if necessary :-)
And the program can store the content of some specified files up to a limit size if you want. (for example: *.nfo) and read some technical ifos from various files. Archive contents can also stored into the catalog. Reading thumnails and media information is also possible.

Please send all bugs/comments to mailing list (see homepage) or (better) submit bugs at bug tracker: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=89530&atid=590426

I'm glad this application is back in the game :).

Is it possible to use bigger icons for the toolbar (32x32) and maybe to use icons from the current icon theme of the desktop environment?

Could you please create PPA for Ubuntu and provide us with new versions. Compiling is quite a problem for beginners like me.

I had to mention that there is a name clash with a prior app found at http://littledragon.home.ro/unix/
Besides that your work is great and i'm waiting for an ebuild. Anyone interested to make one ?

I was really excited to find this program to be able to index CD and DVDs. It feels much more stable than things like GTKtalog and I like that it's not integrated like Katalog, which I had to compile myself.

cdcat is straightforward, easy to use and FAST compared to the other programs.

the author has done a good job at keeping it updated and I hope this program gets more attention which it deserves. I would love to see it integrated further with KDE so that it might become one of that standard KDE apps offered with the suite.

thanks for this program.

Hi!, I had compilation problems with qlist.h because in QT >= 3.0 has been renamed qptrlist.h, i use 3.2.3 version of QT.

I changed the include in exportcdcatdb.h and import.h then compilation finalized.

Now cdcat run, catalog->new OK, but when I try "add new media to catalog" select media (CD) and press OK/Scan the program frozen with this output in console:

...
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-82893)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-82894)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-82895)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-82896)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-82897)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-82898)
...

without end :).

I try the 0.95 and cvs version with same result but the windows version run perfectly with wine ;) without that error...

Cdcat is great program imho more useful than gtktalog, and I only can use the windows version over wine.

Sorry my bad english.

The use of windows version is not recommend because the unix version has some more cool features :)

I fixed the use of qlist.
The other problem i cant repeat.
rpm -q qt3
qt3-3.3.0-24
(KDE 3.2rc-1 ;))

Have you set your cdrom in settings?
Try with latest version:
http://cdcat.sf.net/cdcat_cvs_0.96.tar.bz2

please report if it works. Also try to scan a directory...

Compilation OK, thank for your fast reply.

The other problem continue, I try to scan a directory with same result

QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (0)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-1)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-2)
QFont::setPointSize: Point size <= 0 (-3)
...

I think the problem is not in OK/Scan function because the program frozen even if I press Cancel or close the dialog's window, with the same output when I press OK/Scan :(

I play with options in configuration "Use own font size" and others... without solution.

The import of gtktalog db work :), but when press save button or Catalog->save the program crash with the same output
