Description:

Simple Installer started really simple, then got more features. To some it looks imposing, but it is still easy to use. It's both more and less geeky all at once.Note that the archive now includes both the old version and a new one that requires Kommander 1.0 RC1. If you have the latest Kommander installed the new version is a very slick install, but that's still a work in progress too. See changelog for what's new.

Look for a new release very shortly that enables internationalization!

This is a Kommander application. Kommander ships with Quanta Plus. This should work with versions 3.1 or greater and all features should be enabled with 3.2 or greater. If there are problems let me know. As a Kommander dialog you can also edit this file for your purposes. Kommander uses kmdr-executor to run and kmdr-editor to visually edit files.

This dialog was designed to make installing from source point and click easy.As I've noted, you may want to alter it for your purposes.

Version 0.7
This version has some nice enhancements. There is a statusbar now. Also the settings on start up and configuration are much faster with new Kommander features. There is also a new source tree display. Double click a file to view it.
Version 0.6
Only inserts unique items into history now, adds comment line in history for the program and information in settings about mode when changed. Thee was also a complete layout clean up so things have more space and the dialog resizes correctly now. There is also a new install wizard for installing Simple Installer and it is packaged in a self extracting archive.
Note: this install changes to a more consistent default naming which will mean settings are lost. Edit $KDEHOME/share/config/kommanderrc and look for /share/apps/kmdr/si_installer/main.kmdr] change it to /share/apps/kmdr-si_installer/main.kmdr]
Version 0.5
All new stuff! New project set up with installer and with multiple dialogs. New Logging install that doesn't make you watch the console, saves everything in case you need it and pops up a dialog when it's done. New error dialog for failures. New configuration dialog and settings. New settings reporting buttons. Directly save directory. (I should have skipped a few version numbers) ;-)
Version 0.4
Fixed an embarassing bug, configure options were not being added to the command. Now it also saves your configure string and retrieves it when you go to that directory. This will help you build consistently. Note that the enable debug check box does not yet remember it's setting. There are also new message boxes for errors and some code clean up. I have also gone to separate windows for configure and make because some systems were ending after the configure.
Version 0.3a
Added a button to save the current path to history without making the program. Also I fixed a bug in the history function so it works correctly now. Finally, Raúl Moratalla sent me a Spanish translation so I applied the fixes to it and included it in the tarball. It's still quite small.
Version 0.3
When a source directory is chosen a listbox now shows the README and INSTALL files if they are present. A button allows you to view them. There is also a new tab where you can gather system information. This is useful in case you encounter a problem and need to report this back to a developer.
Version 0.2
installer2.kmdr now has a history tab that stores all the directories you run a make in. Selecting it sets that directory and takes you to the build tab. This requires Kommander 1.0 Alpha 2. If you are running an old Kommander use installer.kmdr instead.

I just thought of this and was going to do it. The problem is that a lot of the better features of Kommander are new and I don't remember what version or Quanta some shipped with. We're addressing this for a Kommander release we plan to do next month. In the mean time I'm sure everything I'm using will work if you have Quanta 3.2.2 or 3.3 BE2 installed. I think the new features will work with Quanta 3.2. I'll post the update shortly and I'll know with the feedback. ;-)

The Kommander release coming up will really begin to make for more and better Kommander programs.
