Utilities by just-free-man 48 comments

Well, that was actually easy, though not according to included instructions.

I have created a deb package using checkinstall (again, it will not warn you of dependencies, and will probably only work with kde 4.6 on Kubuntu 10.10):

The procedure for compiliation is the following (do not follow the one in COMPILING file, it is incomplete):

# check out the current sources (method below) or maybe just download the tarball...
svn checkout kdeplasma
cd kdeplasma
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
sudo make install - Apr 20 2011

I have converted the 0.13.1 rpm to a deb using alien...

It seems to be working on my Ubuntu 10.10 workstation. But it will probably fail to warn you if you are missing any dependencies, so be sure to install the current ubuntu package from repositories before installing this one on top. - Apr 17 2011
UFW KControl Module

System Software by CraigD 48 comments

This is a great utility!

I installed a package for Ubuntu Natty on a Maverick system, so the placement of the kcm module might be outdated, but it is strange that the module is placed as a separate entry under "System administration" heading.

I think it is network related, so it should perhaps go under "Network and Connection " heading and perhaps – under "Network Settings"? - Apr 09 2011

OCR using Tesseract

Dolphin Service Menus by dgvirtual 12 comments

Here is how it is done on command line: using hocr2pdf utility from exactimage package. However, you have to use cuneiform ocr to get the text file. You can also google for two utilities that automate this process (again, using Cuneiform): pdfsandwitch and pdfocr.

Unfortunately, not all is well with the international characters: the embedded lithuanian is effectively stripped of all specific national characters... But English pretty much works! - Oct 29 2010
OCR using Tesseract

Dolphin Service Menus by dgvirtual 12 comments

Thanks for reporting this. I really do not know if I had done correctly the installation part – I cannot install ANY service menus on my Kubuntu 10.04 with KDE 4.5.1, so cannot troubleshoot that. All I know is that it installs once you unpack it and run ./, and uninstalls running ./, so it kind of should work..

Re the other problem – could you try simply running "tesseract yourfile.tif youroutput -l spa" (if it is not a tif, convert it to tif somehow) and see if it works. Maybe the problem is in tesseract? if it works on simple tif with spanish, does my service menu work on simple tif? If not, could you please email me the modifications you made in the script and your test image? My email is in readme.txt in the package.

By the way, what is your locale? Does it work if you change your locale to english? - Oct 04 2010
OCR using Tesseract

Dolphin Service Menus by dgvirtual 12 comments

Right, there is no language "ger" in tesseract, but tesseract is so much underdeveloped that it does not tell you that.

And for me it works both in console and through the menu... So I am not sure what the problem is. Maybe you made a mistake when modifying the *.desktop file – try it using english language (the one, I assume, you did not modify) – if it works, then there is a mistake in the german part :) Could you please review it, and if you do not find any fault – post it here?

By the way, the output you get on that file is not the best since the image is not sharp enough for tesseract. I opened it with gimp and applied threshold – i immediately got a sharper picture and consequently – better results.

You can also modify the image using this command:
convert diplomanmeldung.jpg -threshold 45% -monochrome diplomanmeldung45.jpg

The threshold percentages will vary depending on the image...

Here are results with your original file:

Here is the modified image:

And the results with the modified image: - Sep 16 2010
OCR using Tesseract

Dolphin Service Menus by dgvirtual 12 comments

ok, lets troubleshoot...

First, check if imagemagick is installed – it has a tool "convert" that is used in the script. it can be done in Debian thus: "dpkg -l | grep imagemagick" – if it outputs the name and version of imagemagick, then this is more than a missing dependency problem...

Could you then send me an image that does not work? And also:

1. list of instaled tesseract packages (in Debian can be obtained running: "dpkg -l | grep tesseract")

2. output of running from the console on the image you send me?

The command should be run this way:

" eng your_image.png"

my email is in every file of the service menu... - Sep 16 2010

Dropbox ServiceMenu

Dolphin Service Menus by hash87 124 comments

dropbox.desktop file with Lithuanian translation is available from here:

And a suggestion: I guess „share this folder“ option should be available only for mimetype „folder“. To implement that you would need to create a separate desktop file for it and specify that it should be only available for that particular mime type. There are lots of examples of how to do that in the standard service menus distributed with KDE. - May 15 2010
OCR using Tesseract

Dolphin Service Menus by dgvirtual 12 comments

In general it is possible in Linux – I heard you can use a gtk+ program [url=]gscan2pdf[/url]. It has Tesseract-OCR as a possible dependency.

However, I am not sure how it is done on command line, therefore – not sure this function can be integrated into these service menus. - Mar 10 2010

Hi, your theme is really cool, I intend to use it for KDE lithuanian language translation project. However, it has a problem with internationalization: it uses different placeholders that do not support internationalization...

Would it be possible to have ktrafficanalyzer to count the network traffic specifically for a specific period of time? Say, I have a limited internet access during the peek hours from 6 AM to 6PM (100 mb per month) and unlimited access from 6 PM to 6 AM. extra megabytes cost me a lot of money during the peek hours so I need to watch if I have not ecceeded the limit just during those hours.... Would it be possible to make such an option in ktrafficanalyzer? - Apr 12 2007

Dolphin Service Menus by jmsanchez 4 comments

I found that if I run it not as an sh shell script, but as a bash script, the error does not happen. So, the script must be a bash script actually, and you need to correct the shebang reference at the start of the script.

Here are also the needed mime types for Kubuntu Edgy to add to *.desktop file:


add them at the line ServiceTypes=

I have also added other open document mime types, but am not sure if it is needed for anyone, or - if it works:


Good luck! - Mar 01 2007

Dolphin Service Menus by mdhirsch 2 comments

Hi, nice little menu.

If you could make the script accept the first parameter as size of the image, and all the rest - as image names, you could change the menu to have submenus with different sizes to convert to. As well as put it under the "Actions" menu :)

I did it the more primitive way - by creating separate scripts for each size and modifying the menu like this:

You can use that script modification if you like it :) - Jan 26 2007

I installed the menus but they do nothing.

When I run from command line, I get the following:

dg@pieva:~/Dokumentai$ telekomui.odt content

Is there a syntax error in

Moreover I had to add "application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text" to ServiceTypes= string in the .desktop file to get it to recognize not just the old OpenOffice format but the real Oasis Open Document text format (other OD types have to be added as well). It may be peculiar to Ubuntu, but I doubt it. - Jan 07 2007

Could you elaborate on defining global keys? Where and how do I configure that? In Kcontrol > regions and accessibility > hotkeys > global hotkeys i see no way to configure something for amarok...

I think KMyFirewall needs an easy way to add protocols to the protocol library. Because now, if I want to add edonkey or gnutella protocols, the only thing to do is to go into editing iptables themselves.
