Replace the following lines in /use/bin/kim_resizeandsend :

The 'send by mail' function does not allow spaces in the file name :-(. Anybody know how to fix this? - Feb 12 2008
To fix the 'send by mail'-issue, that didn't work and what has to do with the fact mktemp can't create the tmp-folder; can be solved as follows:

In konsole:

mkdir $HOME/.kde/tmp-

For me that did the trick. The $HOST doesn't give any output and is skipped.

Hopefully the developers can fix this problem ASAP. - Feb 12 2008

Looks very promising and also very clean. There are a few things I think should be fixed first.

1. Remove links to non existing articles (the red links)
2. Remove the interwiki links.
3. Remove links to categories or make sure the categories are parsed correctly.
4. Make sure when you click on a link you go directly to that article. Right now it is only added to the list on the right.
5. Make sure it depends on Python 2.5. 2.5 is default on Kubuntu and I had to install 2.4 also.

Keep up the good work,

I have transparency, but disabled composite in Xorg, because my video card does not like that and I don't like that to, because of performance reasons.

Anyhow my Superkaramba themes are transparent and kicker is transparent. So why can't this program not be transparant?

Another issue I've forgot to mention:

Just a trick when you have Kopete 0.12.* installed from source. Because whatever I do, it will not find my headers. I use Kubuntu, so they are in /usr/include/kopete.

Anyhow just copy those header files to the root of the desklist-source-tree and do ./configure --prefix=/usr (if Kubuntu)

all will be fine.

Indeed, this solved it. My kopete 0.12-beta was compiled against kde 3.5.2. In uninstalled 0.12-b2, I installed kdenetwork-dev (temp. installed kopete 0.11, recompiled kopete 0.12-b2 and compiled thsi plugin succesfully afterwards). - Apr 15 2006

Unfortunaly KMLDonkey lat release is from 2004. In the meantime MLDonkey's development continued. That doesn't mean that KMLDonkey doesn't work, it does, but it behaves odd, like:

1. Search results are displayed multiple times for the same file.
2. Geo-data (flags) is not displayed
3. Old configuration

Please take a look to Sancho, how they are doing and hopefully KDE will have a good up-to-date MLDonkey frontend again.

Strange, but the bug does not occur anymore. Anyhow I'm using Kopete DeskList now, not because I don't like SKopete, but because I can use the context-menu now and for me it is faster. - Apr 18 2006

I really like this theme, although I think it's a bit to slow (I have PyKDE on).

Anyway I've found one bug and this that it duplicates the contacts in the "Monitored Contacts". Not right away, but agter a while, while it runs. I now have some contacts more than 30 times in the list. Half with their alias and half with their e-mailadress. Off course it is no big problem, because it only shows one in the main Skopete-contact-list, but I was wondering if this is not eating resources!? - Apr 14 2006

Using SK 0.39, Python 2.4.3 and AERO AIO 0.8e

This seems like a great plugin, but it doesn not show anything. I'm using the latest version and I restarted SK allready. I also saw there is no .sh-script in the scripts directory, but if I understand your changelogcorrectly it should not be there anymore, so that's ok.

From the site: "Import any file supported by ffmpeg and convert it to DVD compatible video."

I tried to use a divx-avi, but it only complained about this in the log:

"Skipping sector, wating for first VOBU...".

So that doesn't seem to work, that's a shame.

I am looking for a app that can encode all mplayer- or xine-supported videofiles to DVD. I also like to be able to move videos into chapters or titles and to include subtitles. I thought I've found it, but no :-(. Allthough subtitles are working.

So I will continue use DeVeDe, allthough I can use this to create menu's, but there are more apps like that. A pitty, I thought I've found a all-in-one-solution. - Apr 12 2006

Using 3.5 (RC2), but same with 3.4.x

I don't know with Quanta. The concept and features are looking very great, but....

1. The VPL is slow and can't only undo a few actions.
2. It crashes a lot. I allready deleted the config files, but still it just crashes, when I'm doing something random (as it seems). The problem with the crashes has been for a while now and it is the only program that crashes in KDE so much.
3. KimageMapEditor is a great tool, but the imagemaps don't work in Konqueror (it does in Firefox). So what's the use of a KDE-app, when the output won't work in Konq?

1. Yes I selected the dict. I tried also many times (without a crash) btw.
2. Yes I noticed that "twice" to. That gives me another suggestion:

Be able to change the ctrl-key to the alt or shift key. The reason is that I use ctrl+c sometimes and than the translation pops-up at e a moment I don't want it.

Thanks for this allready (for a 0.1 release) usefull program.

I waited for this progras very long thanks. Off course I have a few suggestions and there to seems to be a bug.

1. Be able to select words (translations) so you can paste it somewhere else.
2. Be able to change the font and font size of the popup.
3. Be able to turn off extra info about the word. Only the translation.
4. Be able to translate whole sentences.
5. Be able to use knewstuff to download dictionaries.
6. Using transparancy.

1. I can't delete dictionaries. I have to it by hand using the ktranslatorrc-file.
2. I don't understand the ctrl-key, sometimes it doesn't work and sometimes it says "no plugins selected". 90% off the time though it pops-up OK.

Thats it. Keep up the great work and thanks again.
