Dragon Player

Video Players by eean 278 comments

a 3-in-1 dvd is a DVD which has Three movies. Like my matrix 3-in-1 has:

1. The Matrix
2. Matrix reloaded
3. Matrix Revolutions

Likwise there are other 3 in 1 dvds for other movies like:

1. Jurassic part 1,2,3
2. kill bill

Video Players by eean 278 comments

in DVD I need to use "Next" and "Back" to move between movies. I have matrix 3-in-1 dvd. I can't go to previous and or next movie using codeine. There is no Next and Last buttons and even in the toolbar it's not present.

codeine-1.0-rc1 here, xine-lib-1.0.1 - Jul 21 2005

Video Players by eean 278 comments

1. I have xine-lib-1.0.1, and xine-ui-0.99.3,
2. xine can play vcd, but codeine can't play vcd.
3. it is showing can't find plugin error message.
4. I have even added '/dev/cdrom' into codeine's vcd option.
5. link is there for /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdd. (no link problem)
6. codeine can play DVD (matrix movie ;) (but have to do first "ln -sf /dev/hdd /dev/dvd")

could you please tell me what I am doing wrong with the VCD aspect? Could you play VCD?

which version of xine do u use with codeine?

I love codeine and want it to be my Video player (all video format). VCD is on such important thing in India like DVD there ;) - Jul 21 2005
KMenu launcher mod

but it won't show up, I copied klaunh 22x22 size png to /usr/share/icons and icons/hicolor and icons/hicolor/22x22/ and hicolor/22x22/actions and /opt/kde/share/icons and the sub directories.

I copied the png image as klauncher.png as you've suggested. What am I doing wrong? - Jul 20 2005
KMenu launcher mod

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by lxnay 29 comments

I'm not discouraging you, nor I'm telling that this is bad.

I like your work!!!

but compiling is a time consuming process and the package which gets compiled can't be uploaded to kde-look because of the huge size.

That's why i'm asking a module like small applet thing which could be uploaded to kde-look.org.

Keep up the good work. Good Luck!!! - Jul 20 2005
KMenu launcher mod

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by lxnay 29 comments

You know compiling the whole KDEBASE package takes many hours which is a discouragement for a user. And most distro's will not consider this module to be part of kde.

kbfx is not dead, Siraj Razique is having exams these days.

It is good but the compilation thing will not make it popular and Aaron J. Seigo will not allow anything which he seems not ok into kicker, cause he is cleaning up the kicker code. - Jul 20 2005

Chat & Messenging by yogin 11 comments

Please consider making a small plugin for kopete. It will only benefit KDE users.

And if you feel like helping GNOME guys a Gaim plugin will do the justice.

In GNU/Linux Gaim and Kopete are the popular multimessengers.

Please... - Jul 20 2005

KMenu sidebar image for Slackware GNU\\Linux 10~

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Kyur4ThItch 3 comments

Thanks dude, it looks really nice, you should provide few more variety of the sidebar with different fonts.

you've improved it, and my positive vote goes to you ;).

Keep slacking! - Jul 19 2005

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by nunogomez 27 comments

and it is not against KDE but for good for KDE in general.

I guess he is making simpleKDE by removing extra code from KDE's huge packages and making it small and simple.

I really like your approach.

Simple KDE menu should have ONLY

1. ONE Media Player
2. ONNE Audio Player
3. ONE Image Viewer
4. ONE Terminal application
5. ONE Text editor

no more redundant software which does nothing but keep KDE look ugly and bloated and big (package size).

I really feel bad for KDE to have too many partially-usable applications. like kaboodle, noatun, kplayer, kaffeine. they are just partial not complete.

I want a media player which can play audio, video, streaming, embedded media flawlessly, a Good MPlayer frontend would be good. But there are none. Perhaps KDE 4 will solve this mess of unnecessary applications. - Jul 18 2005

It doesn't resemble XP's start menu properly.

Color are perfect, the shape is not similar and an icon like "Tux" or "K" or "your distro" would be cool ;)

hi dude,

I thought that there no such thing as fading/unfading engine as you've suggested.

I suggested creating mng images which show fading and unfading.

But you have better way of fading and unfading. Good Luck.

I'm eagerly waiting for your fading/unfading feature.

Thanks again. I love your work. - Jul 05 2005

Pdflatex servicemenu

Dolphin Service Menus by bobuse 2 comments

did you know that presentation is more important than the food/product/thing which is being displayed?

thanks for kiso, it's woderful. But when I modified Slackware CD1's .iso and saved it then burnt it. The cd won't boot.

Does KIso support bootable cdroms? If no then please support that too. That would make editing of live CDs like KLAX, knoppix, slax, and bootable linux cds much easier to modify/upgrade.

Thanks again for wonderful KIso application. - Jul 03 2005

Please make it work with kmoodine engine. Small splash screen is not that good looking.

you've made a good one though. please port it to moodine engine.

1. typing text in OpenOffice.org 1.1.4
2. typing text in KWord 1.3.x or 1.4.x
3. testing hi.wikipedia.org with konqueror.

The font is perfect here in slackware where I have "BYTECODE_COMPILER" enabled in freetype-2.1.7 and freetype-2.1.10.

You can see that exactly in the screenshot.

Please try compiling freetype with bytecode interpreter enabled. check freetype documentation. just remove /* and */ before and after "#define BYTE_CODE_INTERPRETER" in freetype-2.1.7/include/options/ftoptions.h - Jun 30 2005

Just creating 10 to 20 images with varying transparency like:

image1 -> 5%

image5 -> 25%
image6 -> 30%
image7 -> 35%
image8 -> 40%
image9 -> 45%
image10-> 50%
image11-> 55%

if we want Appear then use image1->image20

if we want dis-appear then use image20->image1

this will make fading look good :) - Jun 26 2005

Static IP configurator

Network by tomasm 6 comments

Yes its useful. But please add support to store the settings.

slackware (bsd like) stores ip address and gateway information in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf file and dns in /etc/resolv.conf

redhat (system v like) stores in /etc/sysconfig/network.

or you can also have it running in the startup script. so that you don't need to depend on the default configuration files.

just adding 'ifconfig eth0 subnet' etc. in /etc/rc.d/rc.local that would make life easy for u and us :) - Jun 23 2005

Crystal Clear

Full Icon Themes by everaldo 199 comments

I love your icons. No doubt you are fine artist :)

The only things I don't like in the icons are:

1. Crossed (slanted) folders: which makes them look unstable in the window. It feels like they are about to fall down from the window.

2. Guided icons: in toolbars most icons are *same* colored, which makes very difficult for person standing behind to guide a person using KDE.

Though, now with "Crystal Clear", it is easy to say "press the Yellow icon on the toolbar to reload", or press the "red button to stop", or "press the first green button to go back".

With Crystal Clear, the folders look stable and icons easily identified. I am happy with your artwork. thank you. - Jun 22 2005

I downloaded aLinux and installed it, but I could not compile anything! The gcc is not installed and i tried downloading gcc. but there are many things lacking like make autoconf and automake, I could not find the package for make.

configure always says "gcc can't create executable code!"

perhaps it's an issue with aLinux. Now I switched back to my beloved Slackware! Though I like aLinux. - Jun 17 2005
ALI - KMenu - Suggestion

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by zammi 9 comments

I really want KMENU to be like this! It is useful and attractive.

You KDE (windows hating) users have problem of hating everything which looks good and distantly familiar to windows you people get so bitter!

It's windows like? No way! it is more attractive and has much more functionality of finding application.

Grow up guys, If you really hate windows you have to stop using KDE! why? see this list:

1. Window decoration
2. window button placement (minimize, maximize, close)
3. panel
4. shortcuts keys (ctrl+c, ctrl+v, ctrl+n)
5. menu (menu looks exactly like windows)
6. show desktop button
7. quick launch
8. system tray
9. toolbars
10. folder icons
11. kolourpaint (exactly like mspaint)
12. ....and the list you can increase by yourself.

Keep hating windows and stop using KDE, because KDE is more like Windows!!! And you know that! - Jun 17 2005

Linux and KDE button for KBFX

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by maarizwan 16 comments

Thanks for your kind words! The problem I see with your Linux setup is that it may be missing the gnu's gcc and g++ programs required to compile anything!

if you use an RPM based distro check out with this command:

rpm -qa|grep gcc
rpm -qa|grep g++

if you don't get any result that means you are not having gcc and g++ installed. You need to install the GCC and G++ RPMS (devel ones too) to get anything compiled on your system!

have fun! - Jun 14 2005

How to install skins!

please download any of the skins from:

1. I hope you have enabled the kbfx applet by Right-Clicking on Kpanel->Add to Panel->Add Applet->kbfx

if you don't see anything after adding the applet, please copy "cp ~/kbfx/src/xp.png $KDEDIR/share/icons/default.kde/22x22/actions"s" or copy the xp.png to ~/.kde/share/icons/default.kde/22x22/actions

2. restart KDE

3. after you see the applet button, drag and drop any of the downloaded theme's images on the button (you need to extract the image files first!)

4. Alternatively you can edit ~/.kbfx/config file where you can set the default theme!

Have fun! - Jun 14 2005
