Nice, but as I mentioned it needs KDE>=4.4.

And indeed my package was 64bit, that could explain why it didn't work for you.

ok i have made,
i have used this cmakelist

http://paste.kde.org/7052/
as you can see here

set(CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_DEPENDS "systemsettings (>= 4:4.4.0)")

i guess should work from

lucid to natty (10.04 10.10 11.04)

systemsettings (4:4.4.2-0ubuntu14) lucid

You miss the org.kde.kcontrol.kcmgrub2.service file which installs under /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/. Also kcm_grub2.desktop misses from /usr/share/kde4/services/ which is perhaps why you don't see any module installed. And you have installed some files under /usr/ and some other under /usr/local/. Did you mean to do so?

Very an cool and usefull kcm module.

It seems to work fine except :

- every key value in /etc/defaulkt/grub is saved single quoted, I don't think this is necessary and it prevents grub-mkconfig from evaluating values. eg. on debian, GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR is default to Quote:`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`, and evaluated as Quote:Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64 by grub-mkconfig. When quoted, menuentries are Quote:`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` which is less sexy...

- When applying changes, kcm_grub2 launch grub-mkconfig but UI does not show any activity, it would be usefull to invalidate buttons or at least to show a busy cursor.

Thanks and hope this will help.

I do not take detailed inspection of the sources, i only see the source tree, but here is not nothin about translation templates, it is in plan?

Yeah, definitely it will be translatable. This is just a preview release, anyway. It's lacking lots of stuff.

Just following the "release early, release often" scheme.

Hi, it looks fine here, it asks for root authorification and then reads the grub config.

I haven't tried the "apply" button yet, but everything looks fine, all the data is read including in the advanced tab.

You could use a KUrlRequester for the wallpaper image, and maybe a color chooser in X mode for the colors...

Super cool, very nice to be able to configure grub in a GUI :)
