Dolphin Service Menus by painkiller101 174 comments

Hello,

this feature, beside a progressbar or activity notification, is really a thing i would like to have in this servicemenu, but is also a thing which isn't really easy to do. Until then i limited the number of compressing files/folders to only one.

I'll see what i can do, but don't want to promise too much.

Thanks again for your feature request! - Jul 29 2008

Hello,

can you tell me exactly how you execute the INSTALL.sh file?
I'm wondering if you're always logged in as root or you just executed the file as root.

Thanks in advance. - Jul 27 2008

Dolphin Service Menus by painkiller101 174 comments

Thank you for your feedback!

The first problem is a thing that i have to improve.
Actually the standard extraction method is that the extracted archive will overwrite existing files.
to change this i will have two possibilities:
1. showing a dialog that ask if you want to overwrite or not
2. automatically adding "(2)" or "_2" at the end of the extracted archivenames.

The second problem has something to with the structure of this servicemenu.
By now if extraction is chosen the script looks at the fileextension and decides what to do. This makes the whole source of this servicemenu smaller and lighter, but causes your problem.
To solve this dirty problem the amount of the source will raise definitely a lot. But it has to be solved.
just give me some time.

For now i've added the extension *.nth to the extraction script. Just download the servicemenu again.

Thank you again for reporting this problems! - Jul 26 2008

Ok, slowly i'm getting crazy with this problem, because it doesn't exists for me anymore.
Could you please download the archive again, because i've edited the INSTALL file once more, which make this file, that doesn't execute for you, exclusively executable.
please write back with results.

Thank you!

P.S.: Does anybody else have this problem? - Jul 26 2008

Dolphin Service Menus by painkiller101 174 comments

Hi and sorry for this late answer!

It seems to me that it has something to do with space characters inside the path where the INSTALL.sh file exists.
I'll try to fix this problem, but don't know how long it takes.
Until then i can just suggest you to move the extracted folder inside a path without space characters.

Sorry and thank you for reporting this bug. - Jul 22 2008

Just "unlock widgets" and then click on "add new widget". It must be found in the plasmoid browser.
If it doesn't directly after the install a restart of your session should help. - Jul 19 2008

Hi,

could it be that you use KDE4.0.x?
If yes then maybe it doesn't work for you, because KDE4.0.x uses Qt4.3 and KDE4.1.x Qt4.4, which brings many more features than the older one.
If no then be sure that you have at least installed the kdebase4-devel and cmake-devel packages.

I hope this will help you. - Jul 19 2008

Thank you very much for your hints!

I'm glad to learn more and more about scripting. Now i know that i've wasted a lot of time to solve the problem of extraction/compression of names with space characters inside (But learned instead other things in bash ;-)).

Thank you again!
It's updated in the new version1.1. - Jul 19 2008

Plasma 4 Extensions by mherbert 196 comments

Hi, may i ask you which kde4 -version is installed on your system?
And have you installed kdebase4-devel package?

If you use kde4rc1 and have installed the package then just do the following:

1. extract the downloaded archive
2. open a Konsole
3. cd $folder-were-archive-was-extracted/quickaccess-0.6
4. mkdir build
5. cd build
6. cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
7. make
8. sudo make install

It simply has to work like this.
If you get an error type it here or send me a message and i'll look which problem you got, ok? - Jul 18 2008

That's really weird.

Dolphin Service Menus by painkiller101 174 comments

Hi and excuse the mistake i've done inside the install-script.

This error happened, because of another different kde4-installation on another distribution.
I've changed the script now in a way that you have to enter the full path to the servicemenu-folder for systemwide installation and not only the kde4-folder.

I hope that it works now for you.

Hello,

i've tried out your scenario by installing the servicemenu in spanish/systemwide and I really couldn't find out this problem, because it doesn't exist here. Does it work if you click/doubleclick the INSTALL.sh file?
Could you please redownload the package and try it again? I've renamed the language folders to international shortcuts (e.g Spanish to es).

while i've tested it with all filetypes and espacially with 7z (extracting here, extracting to,, and extracting to subfolder) i can't find a problem with files that have a '#' in their name. Sorry.

Hello again.

At first i'm also using opensuse 11 and the folder $HOME/bin exists here. Don't know why you don't have it :-(

Instead of this the Install-script is being improved and users will have the choise where the files should be installed.

The problem that files can't be extracted when they have a # in their name isn't reproducable for me. Neither for compression nor for extraction.
Could you please tell me which filetypes you used?

If not please copy the script file/s there or as root to '/usr/local/bin'.
If yes then look if the script file/files, which belong to this servicemenu, are executable.

The fact that i added different language versions aren't caused by the servicemenu-files. It's because of the scripts which shows dialogboxes. They don't have, as far as i know, multilanguage support.
