btw for installation I think newbies would love the following list of commands:
go into folder were you extracted the files and type:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` .. && make -j2
(root password)
make install

Any things missing according to cmake should be installed using distribution installation tools. Generally searching the thing it seems to miss works... - Aug 04 2009

If all features KMix offers can be embedded in systemsettings and plasma, it would save memory and room in the systray. Just like the new networkmgr plasmoid and powerdevil! - Mar 12 2009

it's a nice game, and it's cool you made it freely available (though it would be even cooler if it was Free Software) but what does it do on a KDE software site? It is in the category KDE games, but it's not a KDE game at all, is it?

Of course it *runs* in KDE, but then again, what app doesn't? If it makes no use of the KDE/Qt libraries, it has no place here. - Sep 30 2008

you should use konqi and keep Dolphin clean and easy to use. Tabs don't really add to it: you can drag and drop between two panes or two windows. If you're such a poweruser you need to open many many windows, you probably also want the split-windows-any-way-you-want, plugins and other cool stuff from konqueror anyway - and we shouldn't turn dolphin into konqi. - Mar 28 2008

I bet it has to do with qmake. For me, I could only compile this within my KDE 4 development environment, and not from within my normal userinstall. Pretty weird, considering the output of qmake -v from both:

QMake version 2.01a

12:16 PM superstoned:~/>qmake -v

Using Qt version 4.3.2 in /usr/lib

In other words, both use the same Qt version and are the same qmake version - yet I get the error you describe when I compile this in my normal account, while it works fine in my kde4 account. Yep, weird... - Dec 09 2007
very nice app!

I also have some suggestions:
- It would be lovely if this supported more fileformats (I guess you could easily use some KDE infrastructure for that - would also improve the file dialog ;-)
- It would be useful if a photo came to the top of the stack if you click it (otherwise there is no way to get them to top, right? I didn't find one)
- would dump the two color things, just one like plasma applets have (use the same icon?)
- I was unable to change the colors of the photos, the middle color changer doesn't work. Also, it'd be good if it was easier to find them (maybe just use buttons?). animations are cool, thoug... - Dec 08 2007

Hmmm, compiling from source isn't easy if you're a newbie. But I can give some hints (and there is a lot of documentation out there):

you will need the -dev versions of the KDE packages, so kdebase-dev or something. This will also pull in most other stuff you need for compiling. Then it's up to you to start the 'configure', and see if everything is in place. So go to the location you extracted the archive in, and do ./configure -> then in the output you most likely find errors, it complains about missing stuff. Googling and searching in your package database will then help you to identify and install the missing stuff. Re-run configure etc, until it tells you to start make. Do it, then become root (sudo su) and do make install.

Good luck ;-) - Oct 30 2007

most are in "kde-extras" packages (or a name like that). There aren't that many you can download anywhere, because they must be C++ (and thus need to be compiled for your distribution).

first, this is not a KDE app. Second, we don't want each app having a different look and feel - that's bad usability. So KDE apps mostly don't support extensive theming, and that's a good thing - there are the global KDE themes so all apps look the same.

Nice work on this, looks good.

I think the reason Katapult was/is/seems abandoned is that the normal Run dialog in KDE 4 inherits most of it's functionality (effectively replacing it). Now it's cool to have an updated Katapult for KDE 3, sure, but it won't live very long, I'm afraid.
