My curvature of the spine still breaks this program. Note that the Debian DICOM packages and libraries were fixed to accept these files:

medcon (CLI) xmedcon (X-windows) and the libraries libmdc2, -dev. The jpeg compression may have been the problem.

The aeskulap viewer works fine with them. This is an alternative free viewer with a decent GUI.

If you want the files (one is enough), notify me and I will email. - Jul 12 2007

Take a look at the very lovely user-mode iso file handler acetoneISO here. When one starts this thing up from a terminal, there is a lot of activity going on. What's happenin' ?? One's home is being searched for iso images for this program to access. This without one noticing it without the terminal output.

Kpapers/Qpapers would search (and index!!) the pdfs in the same way, nicely threaded, and build and maintain the "library" without much ado.

JxJigsaws looks for pictures this way, as well. - Jun 10 2007
No, I would not use thumbnails here. My librarian is a graphics librarian where thumbnails are the way to go.

The functionality of a flat(ter) library structure than having to manually go through oodles of subfolders is what I illustrate here.

An expandable listreeview (ubiquitous) would be in order with some sort of preview pane. - Jun 07 2007
Check out the Java frontend for xjigs jigsaw puzzles under other games here. (This is Java, no QT or KDE so probably did not belong here but that's where I put it a while back.)

Included is an image librarian. This will scan folders and produce a flattened menu of images (can even preview PDFs but not its strong point). Could easily be changed to PDF, RTF, etc., with more workable viewers than ImageMagick. - May 29 2007
Looks like a tremendous package. Document management is one of the biggest areas today.

To start, specify and outline functionality desired. Maybe C++ and its ilk are not appropriate here.

Maybe there needs be a section on kde-apps for proposals, ideas and such without cluttering program listings. The foul language serves no one. - May 27 2007

Previous version runs very nicely, does what is needed. Nice.

The latest-and-greatest, I cannot compile. The good old AM_, AC_ thingies undefined catch22. Make -f makefile.cvs will not run because it demands automake 1.61 or newer and I have 1.66 and 1.7 around. Time to make these scripts a bit more tolerant, I think.

Done.

This is very nice (KDE might someday package as an alternative!). Some suggestions:

1. Cache the icon-entries in the background. Submenus should come up "instantly". Now there is a very noticeable delay the first time.

2. Have a button or entry for bookmarks.

3. Something the kmenu does not have: Similar item for addressbook.

4. Do not need the word "Menu" next to the icon. For someone who still does not know what it is, a tooltip will suffice.

5. I had a crash. Next time will get a trace. However, when the kicker came back up, the menus was no longer there. Kmenu will be reinserted along with the other applets. - Apr 05 2007

Used to do this all the time on my windows. Nice convenient applet.

Note: All of the locale.count lines in the setup.py are flagged as errors when the interpretor wants them. I commented them out. Then I had to fix indentation at one point (python parses indentation!) and then it installed just fine.

Maybe simply ask what language folks want for the install program.

The app might test for root privileges on startup and flag the "error" and gracefully exit. - Mar 25 2007

Yes, one might have a text edit field for additional command line parameters.

(Indeed, one might do this for each VM (unless most things like -kernel-kqemu, special networking options and such are implemented in the GUI) - Mar 20 2007
4. One of the other GUIs had a check for share memory. In fact, I made my shared memory larger to enable larger qemu sessions. There is no qemu command line parameter for this so I guess it is default. - Mar 20 2007
It is not possible to add any options to this command line (i.e. to work around some things as of yet not implemented such and -soundhs, etc.

So the program is not simply concatenating its command line options to the text here. Seems it should or could. - Mar 20 2007
This is nice looking, trying to be more like virtualbox and other such interfaces than the usual qemu GUIs.

A few quirks:

1. Selecting device from /dev is wierd. OK, most likely recognizing the not-so-nice qemu-fact that if a floppy or CD is not in the drive selected, qemu will not run.

2. Sound. Qemu will emulate a sound-blaster or en1370. Need pane for this.

3. Networking has options, to be implemented I suppose. Simply worked as-is.

4. SHM (insist on it?)

5. kqemu,ko. Yes (if modprobed), no, enhanced (only for linux guest but makes a big difference).

6. Important question: If I am using an image or iso already created, what is the function of the MyMachine/OS/Os.img? Initial snapshot? Possible "nest" for Knoppix or Dynebolic? Option to use mine instead?? Qemu will allow multiple hd "drives" so you might implement as well.

7. USB Tablet? I do not have one. I have a Roland UM1 Midi interface plugged in, no others. Are you running the mouse using this tablet to get it seemless? Would explain all the mouse results (see below). Option not to use this?

Results:

At first, Win98 did not run. Starting adding new hardware already on my image, found driver (USB Tablet) on non-existant D: drive!!! Soon simply stopped. At this point, seemless mouse worked!! Reran, cancelling that driver. Now win98 worked but not seemless mouse.

Dynebolic boots up much slower than in virtualbox so kqemu may not be (fully) utilized. I had successful runs with Dyne 1.4 previously in qemu but 2.* would not run. Knoppix's KDE would not come up either. Both of these work beautifully in VirtualBox.

ReactOS ran and so did Haiku (BeOS). Choosing seemless mouse rendered the mouse inoperative in both of these! - Mar 20 2007

Is is from "Sonik". Sonik functions though maybe not the app itself seem to be in the KDE distriubtion (although my directory is not from a clean install and the file might have been put there not by konstruct). (It has run afoul of other compilations besides yours.)

The problem is that something like "data.h" is a bit too generic. Neither Sonik nor KNemo should use risky names such as that. SonikData.h and KNemodata.h would avoid such problems.

Of course, setting up the configure scripts which are, however, also quite generic, to have -I for local directories BEFORE -I for globals such as $KDEDIR/include, /usr/include and such, should avoid the problem . - Aug 12 2006
and the solution:

There is a data.h in knemo###/src/common. There is also one in #KDEDIR/include which is being accessed FIRST!

So either specify ALL data.h references to ../common/data.h OR temporarily rename KDE's.

All there is too it! - Aug 11 2006
