KSplash/ML (Release 0.73)

KDE 3.x Splash Screens

Description:

Highly configurable Mac-like (see screenshots) drop-in replacement for ksplash. Notice that this is a separate software package which physically replaces your ksplash binary. This _should_ work with KDE 2.1 and greater, but who knows for sure. Includes a KCM module to help you configure it to suit your personal tastes (each user can set it up differently). Simple to configure and install. :) -dT-

it doesn't compile on slack 8 - just bombs out saying "shell error while sourcing /tmp/blah.sh" when it's starting autoheader. i guess it's because of slack's autoconf 2.5 (had to hand edit mosfet's configure scripts too because of the same problem), but i don't wanna downgrade. any ideas?

Hi, xcuse me, for that "beginner-question":

after typing : ./configure the configure-script ends with a mistake:

That are the last lines after typing ./configure:

checking for rpath... yes
checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!


what prefix must i use ??
I have suse 7.3 with kde2.2.1 !

Thank you

Dis you do a make -f Makefile.cvs before ./configure ? This has to be done to compile it properly.

Mandrake uses its own menu system so you have to add it to the control panel with their menu editor or turn off the Mandrake customisations in the menus.

Absolutely fantastic. Now wouldn't it be nice if the icon developers for kde developped some beter looking icons to match the looks.
I don't buy that argument about icons being symbolic and train signal being symbolic. First of all a train signal and a desktop have totally different functionality. Ok he wants symbolism gine. But for cripes sake no cartoonish icons make the colors more deeper more richer more 'organic' and not so cold.

This has nothing to do with Detasot's work of course. His work is close to perfection.

This should definitly be considered by the guys in charge of the base installation of KDE.

I just love it with the login screen to go with it from this site it makes kde just that bit special and "IT SHOULD BE IN THE NEXT KDE" go do it:)

I think the easiest solution is to use the KDE buildsystem... Also makes it easier to import ksplash/ml to kde-cvs ;)

I'm using an older distribution of the KDE buildsystem. What's involved in upgrading? :) -dT-

The easieast way is to generate a project with kdevelop. It givs you the files and directory structure. Or you could copy the admin directory from kde-cvs (2.2.x branch) and make the changes needed in the Makefile.am.

All this gives you automatic dist creation and translation.

Been too busy with /ML to work on Infusion lately. 0.61 is getting more stable. Yeah, it's a different scope project than KMail -- Geared up towards the Enterprise (ahem, "Exchange") user. It's not that far along, I'm afraid, but the server software (Citadel/UX) is _excellent_. :) -dT-

As many as it takes, of course! Don't mean to flood all of you guys with too many new releases. It looks like I've put in code which breaks on older versions of KDE. May have to downgrade and put out another release... :) -dT-

Really? That's the same version I have, and it works for me. ---- humm, actually, let me check some things - perhaps my system's munging the header files in a different way.. :) -dT-
