Thanks, the global install of the newest version now works with Mandrake 10.0.

good job ... but ...problem with not set $KDEDIR in "global-install" section:

if test -z $KDEDIR; then
echo "\$KDEDIR IS NOT SET"
echo "use --kdedir=path to set your KDEDIR"
exit 1
fi
if test -n ${2}; then
tmp=`echo ${2}|cut -c 1-9`
if test ${tmp} == "--kdedir="; then
KDEDIR=`echo ${2}|cut -c 10-`
fi
fi

I was doing a user install and the install script couldn't find the directory:

/home/mdeanda/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/

You might want to add something like:

mkdir -p ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/

just before copying the file to avoid this error.

An impatient user would quickly give up. I think its otherwise a great little script.

I started a kde-service-menus ebuild in my ebuild pack at http://flameeyes.web.ctonet.it/ with this menu.
I'll add more menus in the next days, but for now, if you want to use this menu with gentoo you can download the ebuildpack and emerge kde-service-menus .

This is really good, and works well. However the install has a small problem - I don't know about other distributions, but in Mandrake, the "--global-instal" option should copy the .desktop file to /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/, not $KDEDIR/share/..., as in the install file.

Good work though! Gets my vote.

Hi, this was one of the features that my girlfriend was missing in KDE. It`s stupid little things like these that make Windows users stick to Windows.

Thanks!!!

I don't agree with that - drag'n'drop from Konqi is much easier than right click-actions-set as... Although, it's nice to have it, it does no harm ;).

I totally agree for another reason

It does only work if you are using kdesktop

The drag-n-drop action will not work if you are using konqueror with another desktop(sawfish, gnome, or anyone else). So the beginner user will not be annoyed by something not working.

That soft is ok for a single-desktop user but linking in such a way applications disallow people to enjoy open standards ...

That soft is great for what he does but I will not use it until a cross desktop standard for background has been found (cf freedesktop.org)
This day I will be able to run konqueror with that feature working.
NB: as an extension of this project you could start fixing a standard backround wallpaper path and file format ...

That could be very great.

I am using konqueror (I love it, very ergonomic) with sawfish (light panel less desktop). I get "Couldn't find the program 'dcop kdesktop KBackgroundIface setWallpaper %U 4" as I do not have kdesktop running
And I want to keep running konqueror without kdesktop and without bugs ...

You could run a test to see if kdesktop is running before include the menu.
