This is not necessary. This is a bug in Unicode handling by KTranslator. This is already fixed.
I'm planning in release a bugfix version soon. - Aug 29 2005

Actually, I don't limit the program to any distribution. I use gentoo and only gentoo, so I can make packages for gentoo. To create for other distributions, I have to install they too and mantain updated all. Not possible. I'm thinking in make packages for knoppix, only because it is a livecd.
To support other distributions adequately, I need support of community. Testing, reporting, patching and making packages (who can do it) is the best way the community can improve the software.
You select the language when you select the dictionary. I know that a better way to change languages would be more efficient, but it is planned for a future version. Be patient. - Aug 28 2005

Suggestions:

1. I don't understand. The selected word goes to clipboard.
2. TODO
3. TODO
4. This is very hard. I don't think this can be done in this decade. :( There are some syntax interpreter projects already started, but all in alpha stage.
5. TODO
6. TODO

Bugs:

1. Did you select one dictionary before trying to delete? Clicking in delete without select anything crashs the program. This is a bug already fixed.

2. This is because I have to hack the clipboard. As X11 don't has clipboard notification and qt doesn't notify selection changes in non-qt applications, I have to write this hack. The bug is you can't select a word twice. - Aug 25 2005

Do you have selected the files correctly? You should have the english.dic file and engtoXXX.dic file in the same directory and you have to choose the engtoXXX.dic, not the english.dic.
libbab is part of the code, so you don't have to install it. - Aug 24 2005

I think that the problem is I forgot to highlight that you should select the word while pressing .
This is to avoid KTranslator try to translate everything you select.
If this is not the problem, please, try to contact me by email. - Aug 23 2005

A plugin for DICT servers is pretty easy to do. I have coded one before, but I thought that a plugin that reads the .dict files directly would be more useful.
Well, no problem. I will create this plugin again. Look for it in a future version. - Aug 23 2005

Actually, I knew the KSteak because KTranslator is inspired in Klicklack that is based in KSteak. Well, KSteak is a specific translation program, English to German, and Ktranslator is more generic (any to any), but sure that I can get something useful. - Aug 23 2005
kio_rar

System Software by rgfernandes 37 comments

I think it is already so. With kio_rar 0.5, you can read, write, rename and delete files in rar. I think this is bugfree enough by now. Of course, it have its bugs.
The only issue is that the kio_rar depends on unrar and rar binaries. This is because the license of rar binaries. It is a commercial license, not free.
I couldn't put kio_rar in kde 3.4 because the feature freeze. - Feb 13 2005

One more thing. My inicial idea is put this code in kde (kdelibs, kdebase or kdeutils). When it reaches 1.0 or so, I will move from kdenonbeta. - Feb 13 2005
kio_rar

System Software by rgfernandes 37 comments

Well, let me explain better. This patch is already in kde 3.4. I only make a backport. I do it because the developers didn't it for 3.3.2.
If you use (or when use) 3.4, this patch is unnecessary.
The kio_mhtml (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=14315) needs this patch too. This patch is not only for kio_rar. - Feb 13 2005

As elektroschock have said, this app will be useful if they send some information about user's usage, not only answers to some questions.
You should think about the several languages in the world too. How can the developer use this information if a italian user sends the feedback but the developer doesn't understand italian? - Feb 12 2005

The konqueror doesn't currently integrate (with double-click) the kioslaves as plugins. This patch is to add this support.
As I said, this code is already in KDE CVS HEAD. It will be released with next version, 3.4 or 4.0. It is a backport.
Several people tested this patch and found no problems. And this patch doesn't make a big change in code. I think it is safe to use.
The decision is yours. - Nov 16 2004

Do you read minds???
I've compacted the kio_rar-0.2 folder with 7z. It took only 264kb against 462kb in bzip2. wow!!
But I have to say that for some files it doesn't compress so much. - Nov 11 2004

Great!!!
I hate to imitate the windows, but if we could choose what icons to hide, it is far superior and useful.
In windows, we can choose what icon to hide?? I don't think so.

System Software by rgfernandes 37 comments

Creating a kioslave to all formats takes almost the same work that creating several, one for each format.
I was talking with a ark developer (Henrique) and he said that they are thinking in convert the whole ark to kioslaves, but one for each compression format.
But, if you want this now, a lot of code I used came from krusader and ark.
Krusader has a kioslave for several compression formats that already works well. It has some bugs, but works.
You will ask me why I made this if krusader already has. Because when I discovered the krusader, I has already made almost all of the code. - Nov 02 2004

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by rgfernandes 5 comments

This kicker applet (lock/logout applet) locks the screen. This shortcut I made only activates the screensaver and don't locks the screen.
Well, you can change this applet to only activate the screensaver, but you have to change the code. It is only a single line, but for the final user... - May 03 2004
Screensaver shortcut

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by rgfernandes 5 comments

This is a shortcut to activate the screensaver. This is a desktop entry to K-menu.
Don't wait the screensaver to activate or be annoyed when the screensaver actives when you are watching a movie. Disables the automatic activation of screensaver and activate the screensaver when necessary.
Simply copy this file to ~/.kde/share/applnk/, for the user only, or $KDEDIR/share/applnk/, for system-wide use. If you prefer, add a button to kicker or put this in Desktop. - May 02 2004
