i did discover

~/.kde/share/config/krename

There must be more squirreled away in the file system:-) Is this part of the "profile"?

i did find a bug. When i open krename after having done a rename it takes the longest item in its history to calculate the width of the widget. In my case this was over 3300 pixels wide ... wider than my monitor and not resizable downward.

Hi Dominick

Thanks for the decade long commitment to making krename the best!

i just recently started a box with Ubuntu 1204. Unity died, so i put in KFCE.

i am a photographer so i was trying to get some meaningful names rather than the default ones. For the most part i was able to do this limited by my cams makers (Minolta) strange and limited use of exif.

In the process i hit on a number of snags that may just need some pointers or could be fodder for a roadmap:

1) Hitting F1 gives a "Documentation not Found" message in the KDE help center. i did find an English ODT file which has the documentation, but i do not know where to put it in my boxes file system so F1 will work in the future. Unfortunately i ran into a lot of dead ends presumably because all the sym pointers and varying conventions make general paths too hard to specify.

i did find ~/.kde/share/apps ... perhaps it needs a krename folder? Could the ODT go in there? Or the PDF?

i did succeed so that

PICT8481.JPE
became
1%2f3-400-m5-42-20120527t164150-8481.jpe

getting the exposure time, time, ISO, and camera from the exif and doing some simple regex stuff.

To get this far i used the tags

[exifExif.Photo.ExposureTime]
-[exifExif.Photo.ISOSpeedRatings]
-[$dirname...]
-[exifExif.Photo.FocalLengthIn35mmFilm]
-[exifExif.Photo.DateTimeDigitized]
-[%5-[length]]

2) As these tags are rather cumbersome to recreate through the rather limited GUI i was hoping to save and reuse them. Unfortunately i can find no way to save and reuse them.

Perhaps this is in the "profile" mentioned in the command line switches portion of the manual (and no where else). Where does this go? What is its usage? Is there more documentation than just the ODT and PDF manuals?

3) PLUGIN`s, generally these seem very useful! Where are they? Is there an open format?
