Ok, great. Thanks for your feedback. You helped me to fix two bugs!
- Mar 01 2010
You could trace the system calls of AnyMeal and check where it expects the file splash.jpg:

strace anymeal 2>&1 | grep splash.jpg

On my system (Kubuntu 8.04) at some point it reports success:

access("/usr/share/apps/anymeal/pics/splash.jpg", R_OK) = 0
- Mar 01 2010
I hope you managed to get the splash-screen installed. I released AnyMeal-0.31-2 with a modified configuration scripts which checks for libxalanMsg.so and links it if it exists. - Mar 01 2010
You need to run make install from the directory anymeal-0.31-1. If you run make install from the sub-directory anymeal-0.31-1/src, only part of the software will be installed.

If it still doesn't work you can run the following command to check whether pics/splash.jpg was installed:

find `kde-config --prefix`/share/apps/anymeal

It should list splash.jpg among other files. I think under openSuse 10.3 the complete filename would be:

/opt/kde3/share/apps/anymeal/pics/splash.jpg - Feb 25 2010
I'm not sure. I looked up the package contents of libXalan-c-110 at http://rpmseek.com/. Apparently there is an extra library in that package with the file name 'libxalanMsg.so.110'. Probably you need to link this as well. Please try to run make with this option

make LDFLAGS='-lxalanMsg'

Well, to my disgrace I must admit that I haven't worked on it lately. Maybe I will try to do something with Qt4QtRuby and CouchDB some time but I won't promise.

Regarding your bug report: One just needs to include cstdio and cstring. I've added the include statements and I uploaded the modified source [1] (I will release it on Sourceforge later). Thanks for letting me know about the problem! Let me know if there are any more problems.

Thanks for your feedback.
Well, I actually do have wrapper providing for doing the abstraction (except for the setup of the database and the embedded MySQL-server). I'm expecting problems and lots of work with different SQL-dialects and different setup procedures.
At the moment there are other urgent things to do:

  • finish RecipeML-import/export

  • printing of recipes

  • support pictures

  • porting to Qt4


I'm sorry, but right now I don't have time to add support for other databases.
It is on my wish list of desirable features though. - Oct 27 2006
You probably already know, that unfortunately each database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, ...) has a different SQL-dialect. Also the interface for setting up a database always is different.

In the beginning I used unixODBC to be able to connect to any database, but providing a user-friendly setup is extremely hard (setting up MySQL/PostgreSQL/SQLite first and then unixODBC as well). Also unixODBC does not solve the problem of multiple SQL-dialects. Furthermore I encountered linking problems when trying to link with MySQL and unixODBC (where unixODBC does some dynamic linking as well).

I also considered to provide SQLite support. The problem with SQLite is, that it represents all data as strings resulting in a low performance. SQLite is only suitable for small databases. I decided to stick to a single database for the moment and I cannot base my application on SQLite exclusively.

I may consider providing backends for other databases in the future. The problem is that from the moment, I'm providing support for multiple
databases, I'll have to do much more testing. I'll reconsider after reaching Beta-status. - Oct 27 2006

I think that the distinguishing features of AnyMeal at the moment are:

  • Manage a large number of recipes (more than 100,000)

  • Fast Mealmaster-import allowing to store erroneous recipes in another file

  • Password management with kwallet

  • Running MySQL as embedded database is possible


Of course there are also some missing features. Why don't you just install both programs and try them out yourself (they're free anyway)? Let me know if you have some suggestions on how to improve the software. - Sep 06 2006
Thanks for your bug-reports! I tried to apply compiler construction techniques to the Mealmaster-format as far as I'm able to. Construction of efficient compilers actually is a field with a strong theoretical foundation.

An include-statement has to be added to the file src/destroyDialog.ui to fix this bug. I hope the build goes through this time.

You found a bug, which only is reported by your new version of the GCC compiler.
You simply need to remove the line namespace mimas { and the corresponding closing bracket at the end of the file src/xmlReference.cpp.
Sorry about that. The fix will be included in the next release (anymeal-0.29-3). Thanks for your bugreport.

Here are some links to recipe resources:

Thanks for your feedback. Comments of this sort really keep me going ;)

I tried to make the installation as easy as possible. Unfortunately the Xalan-library is not part of some major distributions. Setting up mysql is also not exactly user-friendly.

At the moment, I have problems to figure out, how to add user-defined units to AnyMeal, which is a prerequisite for RecipeML-import.

I'm aware of shortcomings in the user-interface and in functionality.

Thanks for using the software. - Sep 26 2005
Never mind. English is not my first language either ;). Thanks for your bug-report!


The constructor for XalanDOMString has been modified with version 1.9 of the Xalan-C library. I've modified AnyMeal accordingly and tested the build with Xalan-c 1.9, which I temporarily installed on my deprecated system :-(


You can download and install the new version 0.20-2 now. Let me know, if there are other problems. - Jul 24 2005

You need to install all required packages, before you can configure and compile AnyMeal:
http://www.wedesoft.demon.co.uk/anymeal-api/install.html#installDownloadDepending
If Fedora Core 4 doesn't come with an rpm-package for Xalan-C, you'll have to obtain the source-code from http://xml.apache.org/xalan-c/ and compile it. - Jun 21 2005
I had a look at http://www.rpmseek.com/ and I found (among others) docbook-style-xsl-1.65.1-2.noarch.rpm for Fedora Core 3.


Try to do the following steps:


  • Download and install the rpm-package: 'rpm -i docbook-style-xsl*.rpm'

  • Do 'rpm -ql docbook-style-xsl | grep -w docbook.xsl' (without the quotes). This should list the locations of the docbook-scripts. Note down the common base-directory of this scripts.

  • Configure AnyMeal by specifying the base-directory f.e. like this: './configure --with-docbook-dir=/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.65.1-2'


If this doesn't help, contact me again. - Jun 10 2005

I'm aware of gourmet, krecipes, mango, ...


Of course I cannot fail to see, that krecipes and gourmet are more popular at the moment.


AnyMeal seems to be exspecially similar to krecipes at first sight:


  • The programming language is C++.

  • A database is being used.

  • The user-interface is developed with KDE/Qt.


A closer look however will reveal to you, that there are major technical differences, which are inhibiting a merge of this two projects:

http://www.wedesoft.demon.co.uk/anymeal-api/faq.html#faqGeneral3 - May 30 2005

Pre-alpha means, that the functionallity is not complete.
I put a more recent rpm-file for SuSE 9.1/i586 on http://sourceforge.net/projects/anymeal/.
Note, that the rpm-files are requiring MySQL 4.1.
You may find it hard to get MySQL running in the beginning (I put documentation on how to do this on the "Homepage"). However it'll may useful in other contexts later as well.
AnyMeal only is a software for searching through a huge amount of recipes. You can get tons of recipes already from http://thehoseys.com/recipes.html.
Enjoy! - Mar 25 2005

I downloaded sunwait from http://www.risacher.org/sunwait/ and installed your theme.

Maybe the output format of sunwait was changed, because I had to modify the commands for extracting the time of sunset.
... | head -c47 | tail -c2
... | head -c49 | tail -c2

Furthermore under GNU/Linux I had to replace "tail -c 2" with "tail -c2".

Nice theme by the way! - Apr 25 2007

I had to had "-lGL" to link it successfully. I recommend using
mdl_have_opengl.m4 (from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ac-archive) to add OpenGL to the configure-script.

For the moment one maybe could try

Looks very nice, but requires a lot of CPU-time (maybe it's the transparent clock being updated every second).
Still it is well designed and has the important features as well (volume-control, song-title)! - Jul 25 2006
