actually..with a good qt theme,you can turn valknut in a pretty nice client
Function are poor but right..you have all you need
and build from scratch..is not a dc-clone..:)
please don't stop the project..:(

Valknut was the best and only usable Direct Connect client around until the CPU issue came around.
I hope someone has the balls to continue this project!

Such a shame to see this project die. Although I don't really like Valknut's interface, it's the most complete GUI client I've found for Linux

...but I'm not a good coder. Although I can test and report bugs. Heh, it may be an opportunity to learn C++ and QT :)

Is valknut dead? 0.3.7 is very old. Would be very bad if the only decent Linux DC client would not evolve...

Hi,
don't know even, why it's posted as updated. It's still version 0.3.7 from 2005. Perhaps just a reminder to not forget this app ;-)

RIP valknut

As soon as I connect to a hub with a big number of users, the UI responds very slowly and CPU usage goes up to 100% and turns unusable.
Is there a way to get around this?

I must say that Valknut is a great application, but I can't seem to do one thing that I could in dc++. I can't see anyone's IP unless I right-click the username and click "Check client version". It's a hassle for me since I use valknut in an institution with a big subnet and I try to download from people closest to me.

I solved! With italian language "enter" button is called "invio" button into file dcgui.cfg (/home/xxx/.dc/), [ sendchat Enter /sendchat ] ,so valknut do not undestand "Invio", "Ctrl+Invio" and "Alt+Invio". The DC Client undestands only "Alt+S" because is the same in english and in italian. The solution is: not change language! ;-)

I've the "ENTER problem" too. In the next version can you put a sort of search users box (like the box in all Windows dc under the user list)? Sorry for my english "maccheronico" :-P

hy..i'm Divilinux..
tnx for making possible this great gui for direct connect..the client works great even without multidownload..
i came from dc++ and the only difficult due to migration was the gui i didn't found in others linux dc clients..
now a debian user just start apt-get install valknut to install program..:)
this can make me convert my friends to the Penguin..Kubuntu in particular.
Just a question..the message to sand in mainchat doesn't work with ENTER button...why?..i've noticed that if u start Valknut first time..without open the transfer windows..u can send messages with
ENTER..but when u open transferts list this not still work..and i must select a
unconfortable ALT+S...
i't my fault?..or wath..:)
