just to avoid confusions... I think this is actually a problem with my xine setup rather than this app's, since I've got trouble while loading arts with xine itself. It would be interesting if it allowed using the default xine audio output somehow. - Jan 24 2005
I think those "app foo is better than blah" are quite off-topic here. Why not just say why it's worse or why it's better or even better... how to improve it?

No app is perfect, neither amaroK nor juK, and neither this one of course. Imho this one is right in between both. More simplistic than amaroK (for those that find it too complex or bloated), but more feature-complete than juK. - Jan 24 2005

Yes, indeed. your comment is really crap.

Amarok got 2000 features, yes, but sometimes working and well designed features pay more than too many half-working and messed up ones.

What I really like from this app is that it's got just the features anyone would want in. No more, no less, and it actually knows dividing radio stations from your playlist clearly, instead of messing up my file list, as some other [snip] app does. - Jan 24 2005

I had warn enabled, not sure about quarantine. I could try again, but I'll have to wait until I get the next virus e-mail (hopefully a long time later ;) - Nov 14 2004
Maybe I didn't understand correctly how this autoscanning works, but shouldn't it warn about viruses in files I just copied into my home dir?

I set it to scan my home dir, I copied 2 or 3 times the file I received by e-mail in there,with different names, but klamav keeps silent.

Autoscanning is enabled, and dazuko module properly loaded, but I don't think klamav is using it. lsmod shows the module is not being used by any process. - Nov 01 2004
I got a problem with 0.6. It tries to load the dazuko module from /opt/kde instead of the kernel module dirs.

My kde isn't installed under /opt/kde btw, so that path seems to be hardcoded. All my envvars are pointing right to /usr/local/kde, so that shouldn't be the problem either.

Why not just run modprobe dazuko without a path? I think it's a good idea if the module is correctly installed in the kernel path, and not under some hardcoded path - Nov 01 2004
Forget it, I just noticed it didn't build clamav when I built the frontend.

Nice proggie! again :) - Oct 14 2004
I already got clamav 0.80rc installed, when you use 0.75 embedded in your source. Wouldn't it be nice that it used the one already installed in the system? after all nobody wants two versions of the same antivirus installed at the same time, and thus we don't have to wait for a new frontend upgrade to use newer clamav releases.

Otherwise, just thumbs up. Very nice! - Oct 14 2004

Ok, that will make me happy enough next time I upgrade. Thanks a lot to you =) - Oct 14 2004
>The Gentoo docs recommed you to do an >"emerge -pretend" before,

sure I do, but that doesn't mean it has to be done in 3 separate lists and checking 40-50 packs 3 times. That doesn't make sense in a gui.

It all can be done just by showing a dialog saying "this will be installed, do you agree? Else change the checkboxes and try again"

>The purpose of the "emerge queue" is >to collect all packages before >launching any lengthy emerge process.

Collect what??? They are already collected in a QListView. More than fine. Please let me explain how the process works right now and how it could better work:

1) I want to upgrade my system, so I go to upgradable packages tab, and press refresh list. So far you got an A
2) I choose 50 packs that I'm interested in. I add them to the package queue.... and damn! I wanted to install them, why aren't the boxes checked? Why do I need to check 50 boxes? Why not uncheck what I don't want? Or have a "select all" button? It'd take ages to upgrade the whole system.
3)Now that I agree to install those or some of those... I check the 50 packs again.. and oh! they turn up again in the right listview... guess what... unchecked!!!! why would I need that??? I need to check the 50 packages yet again? To check again what I already checked and verified??? I need to agree 4 times that I want to install the packages???
4) So I agree to do that.. desperated... and check 50 boxes yet again (and this is the 3rd time I choose the packages!)
5)Now I press emerge.. and funny... it dares to asks me again!.. you want to emerge them???

The way I would code all this would be:

1) choose your packs under upgrade
2) a single button is shown with emerge pretend action and shows a dialog "hey! I'm going to install all this stuff", you want it?
3) I happily press yes, and begins installing

note... this dialog works with 1 single tab. I only chose packs one time. I checked properly the pretend step. And no nonsense queueing is needed. - Oct 11 2004
Yeap, I install apps by hand ten (10) times faster than using this app.

Man, yes, the idea is good, but the steps usually are 1) Think 2) Design 3) Code

You seem to have instead 1) Code 2)Design 3)Release in your schedule

Sorry for being so harsh, but I don't think the need for selecting the packages I want ot install 3 times (yes 3!) before pressing the damn button to install them is reasonable.

Yes, the app works, but needs badly a redesign from scratch - Oct 05 2004

Hehehe. Yes, that's the challenge, but nothing impossible. We use virtual widgets offscreen, and new QWidget elements drawing on screen, so kdm doesn't really notice the effect

Then we make it gdm compatible, so it's totally themeable... just read the code and judge yourself ;) - Mar 25 2004

Hi "braindead", sorry, but you chose the nick :)

No matter how much you may hate KDM for the looks, the technology on the back is far from bad, and it's actually rather flexible.

Did you notice /kdenonbeta/kdmthemes? The effort goes as far as making it gdm compatible, but due to lack of time it's not progressing as fast as it should.

Any help is welcome. What's needed: just a little bit of knowledge of how custom widgets are created/drawn, xml, and _layouting_.

I was astonished by the program and using it for a DB of my articles, when I found something really funny. The program worked much faster when I was online, and it was too sluggish while offline.

Want to know the reason? Hehe ;) It seems the program loads the DTD from the internet everytime you click on an element, and takes around 20-30 seconds to timeout:

error : Resource temporarily unavailable
I/O warning : failed to load external entity ""
enson/DTD Bookcase V5.0//EN" "

I'm not quite sure if this could be related to the use of KDE from HEAD.

In case you want more info on this I'll be happy to help at #kde-devel on IRC. - Feb 04 2004

Doing a bit of gg research and ignoring all the "it's impossible" comments on several maillists, I found out that one can use -l -R to create RockRidge extended isos, and those can be modified. I guess that's what the program does. Anyway, I'll have to check the code... ;) - Jan 19 2004
Very nice idea!

I'm curious to know how the program adds files to an iso image. I've tried already mounting an iso image as rw (mount -o loop...) , but never managed. Maybe I'm just missing an option.

Does it extract and recreate the whole image? (it needs quite a bit of space) - Jan 17 2004

Uhmmm... it looks a bit tricky to implement that. I see two options:

1)Your design looks more like website. Actually it would be quite easy to implement it using KHTML, but that would require changing good part of the GUI, and I don't think that would be the best solution.

2) The other solution would be to change the widget that is shown for every appointment. I cannot recognise the widget that they use currently, so it's probably home-made, and therefore could be easy to change. If they had used buttons for example, the shape would be subject to the style, but it's not. - May 30 2003
