Hi Droopy159

Sorry for the late answer; I was waiting for 4.6.4 to be uploaded in debian sid...

I can reproduce the error in 4.6.4, although this id not a dependency problem, it's just that the XLS version changed and this caused confusion

Anyways, I managed to compile by changing
DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2-Based
DTD DocBook XML V4.2-Based
in doc/index.docbook (line 2)

Hope this works for you too and thank you for reporting this error

Hi again cyberbeat

Can you please apply the fix-save-profiles.diff patch and report the outcome here?
In order to apply it, copy it in src/, and execute the command:

patch -p0 < fix-save-profiles.diff - Aug 23 2010
Hi cyberbeat
Sorry it took me so long to reply...

> Did you miss declaring a dependency in CMakeLists.txt?

No, I don't think so...
It works great here (compiled with newly installed kde 4.4.5 on sidux - debian sid) - Aug 11 2010
Problem solved

KDEDIRS was empty so the icons were installed under /share/... instead of /usr/share/... or /opt/kde/share/... and such. Using the following command solved the problem:

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull .. - Oct 22 2009
I am sorry to hear that...

Can you please provide the following info (execute the commands)?

echo "$KDEDIRS"

kde4-config --prefix

find `kde4-config --prefix`/share/icons/hicolor/ -name "gwenr*"

ls `kde4-config --prefix`/share/kde4/apps/gwenrename/icons/hicolor/16x16/actions

PS. Feel free to contact me by email - Oct 06 2009
Unfortunatelly, gwenrename cannot be used by gwenview anymore, because:
- gwenview v. 1.4 is a kde3 app but gwenrename is now a kde4 app, so the paths have changed - the desktop file is in the wrong directory. (but it could be copied there...)
- gwenview v. 2 (kde4) does not use external tools any more - this feature has not been ported yet. So we'll just have to wait on this one :)

The good news is that we can use gwenrename from Konqueror and Dolphin!!! - Jul 04 2009
The short answer is: yes I do :)

The longer answer is that it'll be done after i start using KDE4; and I'm affraid I'm not convinced it can replace KDE 3.5.9 yet... - Jun 27 2008
Thanks for reporting. I didn't realise it got so big...

Please download the patch (gwenrename-1024x768-patch.tar.gz), extract it in gwenrename-1.1-beta4, and execute the commands (instructions are included in the tar.gz file):

patch -b -p0 < gwenrename-1024x768.diff
make clean

Then install as usual, for example:
su -c 'make install'

This is a (hopefully) temporary solution until I figure out something more elegant... - Mar 12 2008
I do not think that metadata editing is what a renaming tool should do, so I don't think this is likely to happen

What might happen is sorting by data/time. Then metadata could be used (when exist). But this is something for a future release... - Mar 11 2008
Than you very much for the package. I will update links asap - Mar 10 2008
I am glad you find GwenRenamet so useful

Sorting by date (time) seems like an interesting feature. I will have it in mind for a future release.

Thanks for the comment - Nov 19 2007
Well, that would be against the whole concept of batch renaming, wouldn't it?

I suppose it can be done, but the changes I would have to make are too extensive.

I realy don't know... Does anyone else really needs such a feature? - Jul 30 2007
Hi all

It has been reported that gwenrename-1.1-beta2 running in suse 10.3 (more distros may have the same problem), displays an error message and terminates.
The error message is:

Memory allocation error
The program could not allocate memory needed for its execution.
Close some applications and try again

This message may be missleading and caused by gwenrename not beeing able to find an icon. Apply the patch you will find in the downlaod section, recompile, install and test.

No matter the outcome (successfull or not), please contact me, reporting your distro and KDE version and of cource the outcome of the patching. - Jul 03 2007
This app is really great. I have used krename for a long time but now this is my favorite.

I am very glad to hear you find it so useful

A side note: Is there a way to only select part of the original file name?

No I don't think you can do that right now... But it would be a nice addition. I will try to implement it in a future version - Jun 17 2007
everybody for the nice things you say about this little app.

Even though I haven't updated it for almost a year and a half, I had been receiving positive messages all this time.

Hope you like the new release

Best regards

About kipi plugins
When I started GwenRename (April 2004) kipi plugins were still in early stage of development

About KRename
I'm not saying GwenRename is better (or worse) than KRename. What I'm saying is: it is simple to use. I always found using KRename hard and confusing, and it had too many features (for what I wanted to do - rename/manage my image galeries)

So, I created a tool for every day use. That's all :) - Dec 26 2005
Pressing 'ENTER' will 'rename' the selected files, even though the 'OK' button is dissabled. Fixed it and uploaded asap as it could lead to loss of files.

Please upgrade to this version to avoid loss of files.
Sorry for the inconvinience....

Spiros - May 06 2004

I have had no feedback till now :-(
Has anybody tested the points I have made? (profile manipulation - missing icons)

In this release please check the translation tab point.

Regards - May 05 2004
Please inform me of any missing icons (that is buttons without an icon) - Apr 15 2004
Hope it's usefull...

I think the manipulation of profiles needs a little testing.... - Apr 07 2004

Thank you very much

Thanks for the packages. I will add the link asap - Aug 07 2007
Thanks for the RPM (and all the SuSE 10 RPMs you've created) :) - Dec 21 2005
No, no Mandrake RPMs here. Sorry. I'm on Suse 9.2
These RPMs are created by Marco Meijer who is kind enough to provide the links I use here. - Jan 03 2005
Has anybody patched KDE 3.3.0?
How did it go? (I have 3.3.1 installed :) - Nov 22 2004
Thanks Hugo...

Sorry for the problem with the patches.... - Nov 21 2004
Sure you can.
If it intergrates to konqueror it is an alternative. It's always nice to have one :) - Nov 11 2004
I am glad to hear that. :) - Nov 10 2004
Its function will be just like just like kio_tar, the ioslave for tar files (and tar.* and war files for that matter).

It will be as discribed in the README, plus the mht files will be opened when double-clicked in konqueror. - Oct 11 2004
everyone for the nice things you say about kmhtConvert.

Please report any bugs you find while using it (crushes, images not showing in prduced MHTs, etc) - Sep 21 2004
Yes you are right.
But the MAF plugin for firefox uses DRF (Resource Description Framework), which is not used in KDE or Windows for Web Archiving - Sep 21 2004
Well, that would be interesting. I will have to look into it.... - Sep 21 2004
Glad you like it :-)
Hope it's useful... - Aug 04 2004
Kate Symbol Viewer Plugin

Hey this is great!!!

Just installed it and works like a charm. One thing though: there is no Bash parser. As I use kate for shell scripting, I think this would be really useful. All a shell scripting parser has to do is print the function names. Since it is this simple, an existing parser can be used: PHP

So in plugin_katesymbolviewer.cpp I changed :

else if (hlModeName == "PHP (HTML)" )


else if (hlModeName == "PHP (HTML)" || hlModeName == "Bash")

and it works.

Hope you find it useful to include in a future release.

Keep it up
Best regards

Hi all

I have started writing a program to do just that.
I post here to get feedback to what I've done so far, and before adding new content into kde-apps.

The program is named kgetbatch (this could change) and you can see some screenshots at

Please send me any comments here or using the link in the page above - Feb 24 2006

It seems you don't have to do something to intergrate your ioslave to konqueror. Konqueror developers have to create a more generic support for ioslave intergration.
Have a look at for more details.... - Nov 02 2004

It would be nice to create (in the a copy of kwriterc and change in it the Encoding to UTF-8. sed would do the trick.
This way editing a desktop file will be in its native encoding (instead of having the user changing it every time)... - Apr 08 2004
