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-

I tried to compile it on SuSE 7.2 and got the following error message:
...in the prefix you have coosen, no KDE headers are installed...

I used --prefix=/opt/kde2/include, and the headers are in this directory for sure...

Ok, found it myself: I've used
--prefix=/opt/kde2
and now it's compiling without errors...

Hi.
I have a problem: I can configure it, but it won't "make" i.e. compile. Stops with error:

cd . && autoheader
aclocal.m4:687: error: m4_defn: undefined macro: _m4_divert_diversion
autoconf/lang.m4:173: AC_LANG_RESTORE is expanded from...
aclocal.m4:687: the top level
autoconf: tracing failed
make: ** [stamp-h.in] Error 1

I'm using KDE2.2.2 on LFS-Linux. Autoconf is 2.52.

Thanks

Got that same error, using LFS CVS and KDE 2.2.2... What's happening?

Edit your makefile and replace

AUTOHEADER = autoheader

with

AUTOHEADER = echo

It compiles fine without it...

I want this kspash when i boot up my linuxbox, mouting filesystems and so on.... Not youst starting kde.. Maby qt-framebuffer can solve this problem?

I don't think that would be an easy task. I've hacked my rc scripts (what 'init' uses to start FreeBSD) to start X right after it's finished fsck'ing the filesystems- It works ok that way, if your system's fast enough. :) -dT-

Not easily. If you e-mail me, I can try sending you some RC files for you to X-amine. :) -dT- (brian@shadowcom.net)

I tried to compile this, but I can't seem to get past this error:

BTW, I tried to make this work by putting the 2.2.2 version of kapp.h in the src directory, but it didn't work.

Sounds like your kde development package is outdated. kdesktopwidget.h is missing on your box, but it's been in KDE since about 2.2 or so... :) -dT-

Well, it seems that you need to raise your minimum KDE version to 2.2... It doesn't seem to work reliably if at all on 2.1...

I may do that, or I may #def out the KDesktopWidget code for older versions of KDE (though you won't be able to use Xinerama with KDE

open kcontrol, go to look&feel->kde splash screen and change behavior to maklassic.

There isn't any ksplash configuration tag in kcontrol :(

running Mandrake?

Then follow the same direction to get Mosfet's Liquid's KControl module working. I forget exactly how to do it (I've gone to SuSE), but it's something like copying the applet from /usr/share/applnk/KDE/Configuration/LoonNFeeL/whatever to /usr/share/applnk-mkdk/Settings/LookNFeell or something to that effect. See the Mosfet Liquid board on this site.

there should have one.
With version are you using?
Did you made make install on the same place where kde is installed?
If kde is on /usr and you install ksplash/ml on /usr/local ksplash can even work, but there won't be any ksplash option on kcontrol.

I've kde 2.2.1 and i compiled ksplash with "./configure --prefix=/usr".

Hi, I've just compiled Ksplash/ML on a Mandrake Cooker. The compilation went fine and the install too.
When KDE start's, I've got a new Ksplash BUT the is nothing in my control center. When I open Look'n Feel, there's no Ksplash Menu.
Does somebody know how to fix this?

Thanks a lot for this great Ksplash/ML. Il really looks great.
