All the info about the next Qtrainer release can be found here:

I am using my forum as a Blog :-)

If you have feature requests: post them on them in that topic on the forum.

idd, the link was wrong and still pointed to the old source.

I fixed it now.

The server which is hosting Qtrainer will be down for 2-3 days.

btw: at the moment qtrainer is a QT4 only application. It doesn't use KDE4.

But in the future I plan to use KDE4.

The language strings are not yet finale and will change a lot in the months to come.

According to my personal feature plan, all language strings of the powertraining-part of qtrainer will be stable in the Qtrainer0.6 release.

I will make a dutch translation then.
When someone else sends me an italian translation, Qtrainer will also be available in Italian.

Translating Qt applications is very simple:

I don't have gentoo, and know nothing about eBuild at the moment.
But I will search for it on the internet en try to make an eBuild package.

You can still compile the source-code with qmake i guess? - Jul 29 2007
Yes, it will work on KDE3.x
I have KDE3.x myself.

You don't need KDE4 at the moment Qtrainer only uses QT4.

So you have to install Qt4: libqt4-core and libqt4-gui

but those libraries can co-exist with qt3 and KDE3.

just use adept/synaptic/yast/... to install qt4, then Qtrainer will work on your computer.

thanks for the comment - Jul 28 2007
I have noticed that I have forgotten to put the Makefile in the source package. But the qt-project file is enough.

For compiling do:


that's all :-)

I guess gnome is a lot more beautifull lately.
You never used to see KDE in a gnomish way because gnome was just not as beautifull.

I like the new Gnome/ubunu theme. (still not as much as I like my own KDE theme)

anyway, nice screenshot - Aug 07 2006

why do you want to run something as root?
When i launch synaptic on kubuntu or mandrake control center on mandriva the computer asks for the root password.

When the computer doesn't ASK for root acces it is just stupid to run an application as root. Because if a securtity hole is abused in that one application, your whole system is at risk!

I have been using linux since 1998 and really I never had the need for a feature like this :-)

install it again but now with another prefix:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

---> this will install the screensaver in /usr/...
maybe KDE only searches for screensavers over there.

toon - Jan 19 2006
just do as the error message says:
"error: GL/glu.h: No such file or directory"

You need to install glu.h
mandriva control center or will tell you it is in the package: libglu1-mesa-dev

things you need when compiling are always in *-dev packages.

maybe you will need liblgl-mesa-dev too....

other version of GCC maybe. I have read that the new GCC is more "strict"

there is an RPM of tuxsaver available on KDELOOK. Just install that one.

Btw: it seems that this project is the most downloaded of all :-)
someone should really develop it further.
My brother, some other guys and myself used to work on it, but we don't have time for it anymore....

maybe i will port it to QT4 when KDE4 comes out.

mmmh, indeed; konqueror tells me:
"Acces to klik://edukator refused" when I Click it.

But the link really is: klik://edukator

Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?

what do I need to enter in the KDE-APPS config dialig...

thanks for noticing me the links isn't working

toon - Nov 02 2005
Finding a good name isn't very easy

But I think about EduKator more as a concept to learn stuff.
First you see an animation or so, then you can change some stuff and see what it does, after that one can study the theory and make some exercices.

EduKator can host lingual-stuff too. Or things about history in the future...

But then the application will need to be re-designed a bit, I think....

So if anyone has some suggestions...please let me know

cheers - Nov 01 2005
Thanks for providing the community with this klik package.

Klik really is a nice tool.

btw:I have read that making klik packages isn't even that difficult.

The klik database is really BIG by the way those who don't know KLIK yet, might wanna check it out.

EduKator Multi Lingual should automaticly choose the right language.
When EduKator isn't available in your language it should choose english.

I havn't been able to test this propper. So can you all let me know if it works or does not work please.

EduKator supports: English, Dutch, French, Russian, Spanish (only menu's at the moment)

Thanks a lot
toon (alias tuxer) - Apr 23 2005
English, Dutch, RUSSIAN, SPANISH

*A russion and a spanish version may be on its way.

:-) - Mar 19 2005
Thanks for your comment,
It really encourages me to go on and make something really nice of eduKator.

I will think about what you proposed.
I will probably conact people from the edutainment project in a few weeks (months?), when eduKator has evolved a little bit more.

When you have any suggestions, just add a comment or send me an email. This is my very first application developed in QT/KDE.(I am still learning it)

bye, - Jan 19 2005
I have already imported my project in KDEVELOP, but I haven't managed to make the configure file yet.
Maybe you can tell me how I should do it?

The programm originally was created in dutch, that's why the source-code of the english version is also in dutch.
I just made a translation file with QT linguist.
If you don't understand my code because of the dutch, just mail me you question, I will translate the code you need willingly.

Thanks for you comment. - Nov 09 2004
Thanks for the advice.
But I still have to learn a lot about C++ and QT.
I will try to solf these problems as fast as possible. - Nov 06 2004
OK, I will work on it.

If you have some suggestions
you may always mail something to me.

Maybe your $QTDIR path isn't set yet.

I had the same problem once.
I just did:
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3/
(the path to qt-lib)

after doing this

[toon@athlon /]$ ll $QTDIR/mkspecs/default/qmake.conf

should give you this output:
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 2341 sep 8 20:29 /usr/lib/qt3//mkspecs/default/qmake.conf
[toon@athlon /]$

btw: I don't know how to make a configure file :-(

I will take a look at it
After doing a quick read:
They say that ati drivers work with composite, but then you lose hardware OpenGL support.
This probably means composite isn't hardware accelerated too.
(Correct me if I am wrong) - Jul 29 2005
The "open-source" ati drivers do support composite. But not accelerated.
So it will be quite slow to run it.

NVIDIA does support hardware accelerated composite

ATI closed source driver: you can't even run composite.....

I also hope they will fix it soon - Jul 28 2005
I think it is a great idea!

At first I dindn't really understand what you meant, but then I looked at the screenshot and it became all clear.

It would be an improvement in usability and user-friendlyness.
Also it would improve the speed of which you can chance from app to app.

However I have no idea how this could be acheaved... So I can't help you with that.

btw: composite isn't supported by the ati (closed source) drivers, and I have to use ATI at the moment. So I wont be able to test it anyway...

I hope your idea will be realised some day.

Kubuntu is a variant of ubuntu, but it comes with KDE instead of GNOME.

Kubuntu uses GDM
And I guess some other KDE people use GDM

My name is Toon Muylkens, Koen is my brother. He is the project leader of tuxsaver but he doesn't have much time now to work on tuxsaver.

The site of tuxsaver is down. But i have made a new one.

The link above is still the old one, i will ask my brother to change that but he is on vacation at the moment.

Have fun with Tuxsaver! - Mar 12 2005

I don't have sound either.
I never noticed because I never use the ocean sounds.

I will discuss the matter with my brother (the project leader)

If necessary we will publish a new tuxsaver release
(with new stories and islands btw)

bye - Jul 10 2004

sorry about the late reply

I already have developed a cowboy-like island where TUX can walk on.

But the thing is:
In tuxsaver setup you can change the island but tux does the same things on every island.
So when I develop a story where TUX rides on his favorit lizard, he will also ride on his lizard on the SNOW-ISLAND. Which isn't logical.
or isn't that important?)

I don't know if my cowboy-like island is already included in the current release.
If not I will ask my brother (the project leader) to publish a new version of tuxsaver with the nex island included.

bye - Jul 10 2004
I once had the same problem with another screensaver. It is a mandrake-specific problem, it has to do with the way mandrake updates his menu i think.

You can try to run 'update-menus' --->
*open konsole (see menu or ALT+F2 and enter "konsole")
*enter "update-menus"
*restart KDE
*does it work??

maybe try to reinstall tuxsaver
*open konsole (as listed above)
*go to the directory where tuxsaver is located (cd /nameofdirectory's/)
*type "su" (+give root/administrator passwoord)
*type "rpm -U tuxsaver-1.0-1mdk.i586.rpm --force"
---> because of force option, you can install it over your 'already-installed' version of tuxsaver - Feb 01 2004
