Description:

This is a simple servicemenu for konqueror that allows to scan single or multiple files and folders using the F-Prot Antivirus. It shows the result of the scanning in a textbox using kdialog. It can also show the progress of the scanning in a terminal.

I hope you may find it useful.
Comments or/and translations are welcome.

TO INSTALL: extract the content of the tarball and copy the file f-prot_virus_scan.desktop into ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus (just for your user) or in /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus, /opt/kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus... etc, depending on your distro, to make it system-wide.
This is only the service-menu, you need to have F-Prot antivirus installed on your system.

FIXED an important bug: till now it didn't show Kdialog message if a virus was detected, because in that case, f-prot return a non-zero value so the "&&" connector didn't work. Changed to ";"

If nobody has reported it, that's good! All of you are virus-aware. I've found it after installing Vir-dows XP (to give it a try) and yeap, my f-prot becomed very happy with it. Like a police-dog in a drug factory.

Italian right translation for new submenus. Thanks Mario.

22-Nov-2004 (v0.4)
Now servicemenu has a submenu with two options:
* Show results: like previous behaviour, it shows a textbox with the log of the F-Prot scanning. I've changed again the temp dir to /tmp/kde-user in the hope that it will work in certain systems it didn't.
* Show progress (in terminal): which actually executes F-Prot in a terminal with the "-l" option (it lists the files been scanned). It may be more usefull when scanning large directories or even full drives.

Thanks to Mario for Italian translation and Patrick for Deutsche (German) one. I've tried to guess translations for new submenus. If they hurt your eyes please tell me some correct ones.

Now temporal file is allocated in /tmp/kde-user directory, as suggested.

OK, to install the service menu just extract the .desktop file that is inside the .tar.gz package and copy it to the /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus(it may vary between different distributions, "locate servicemenus" could help). To do this you must have the right permissions (usually to be root) and it will install the servicemenu for all your system.
If you want to install it only for one user, copy it to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus

This is only the servicemenu, so F-Prot Antivirus will have to be installed yet on your system.

Hi I really like your look, I read that you use taskbar v2, so that is fix. But how did you do the big fancy clock, and the wheather thing and the cpu-showing-thing?

Hi! I'm using that great app: "superkaramba" (http://netdragon.sourceforge.net).

All of those nice things on the desktop are themes for superkaramba. You can find lots (I really mean lots) of them in kde-look.org (maybe you are in kde-apps.org), under Karamba section or in superkaramba website. Themes I'm currently using (I can't live without them) are the following:

Liquid Weather ++

Hi,
Thanks very much for the effort you have put in to this. It works very well. I like GUI's and bells-and-whistles (okay, I guess I've just outed myself as a Mandrake user :)

I like the simplicity and efficiency of this program.

Again, thanks for your work.

Hi, how do you colorize the background of the opened windows in the bar at the bottom? I like it, but don't get how to do that.

Hi. I'm using an improved taskbar (called Taskbar v2), you can find at http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=16261.
It allows you to have a transparent taskbar and also shows thumbnails for current apps. It's a great improvement, try it :D.

Ok, as any other servicemenu it's quite easy to install:
1.- Extract the .desktop file that is in the .tar.bz2 package you download (for example, by using ark or any of the thousands ways that KDE provides to make it easy).
2.- Then copy that .desktop file to directory /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus and you'll have it working (I expect so) in konqueror.

That directory is the one used in debian. I don't know if the other distributions will use the same one. If you don't know you can search for it (locate servicemenus)

Hi,
It doesn't work on my RH9 system. The menu item is there but when I click on it, no term appears. There doesn't seem to be any activity at all.

Any ideas?
