Is there a patch for KDE4? - May 29 2008

Couple of suggestions:
* Why not use KDE's "Open File" dialog instead?
* Would be nice to be able to drag files from the Desktop/File Manager onto the user that you want to transfer them to (nice feature of Giver).
* It also doesn't let me change picture -- should that work or has it not been implemented yet?
* Sending files doesn't seem to work, I get:

current Buddy Content: SN "kepas on haris@linux"
Host: "linux" : 45475
initFileSender - user= "francis"
request finished

....but there is no notification on the other computer about receiving a file. I have tried sending from the other computer as well, but the same thing happens. - Jan 22 2008
Might be a good idea to link to the openSUSE RPMs or 1-click-install (which works for i386 too) as well? Awesome application! - Jan 22 2008

These are some of the most nicely put together icons I've seen in a very long time. Simply beautiful. It's a pleasure to just scroll through the different icons and be pleasantly surprised time after time. Thank you :-) - Oct 02 2007

Oh, and the executable, amarokFS, should be lowercase. :D - Feb 06 2007
A collection of ideas:
* Make amarokSF come with a screensaver, too.
* When you type, make amarokSF search through Amarok tracks so that you can select them. For example, the way Katapult does this is nice. But no, I have no full idea of how you would implement this with the interface.

Note also that the install craps out if you sudo make install, at least on some setups. - Feb 06 2007
yeah, it doesn't compile with Qt4. You need to compile it with Qt3. - Feb 06 2007

The buildset is very common; most of the top icon sets here use it. If you send me just the *alternative* icons (i.e. just the kmenu ones, and the debian customised ones) then I'll put it into a buildset and host it for you, on a pretty fast connection, if you like. Email is in my profile. :) - Dec 01 2006
Since the varying icon themes only change a few icons, why not ship with just one tar with a nice buildset?

That way you could probably host it on an actual server, as filefront is annoying. - Nov 30 2006

I second the root/sudo powers are required for the make install; kdesu would do it (distros using sudo patch kdesu to make it use sudo anyhow). Also you really need to be able to have options like specifying the prefix. When installing kde applications for example, it's procedure to specify the KDEDIRS as the prefix. - Oct 15 2005

I see absolutely no relation with your question to any point I made. The answer is simple: because of convention. - Jul 18 2005
Firstly, an absolutely great program. Thanks guys.

Religion is not a science, though both are obviously not opposed to one another per se. Religious studies, and Philosophy even, are grouped under *Arts*, in that attainingg a degree in i.e. UK (in Religious Studies) you get a BA (bachelor of Arts), not a Bachelor of Science (BSc).

Religious studies and Philosophy are, of course, far older schools (as is Mathematics) than science, which only really started getting roots from Aristotle. Anyhow, the Bible is not a work of science, it is a work of spirituality; and, Science (well, any proper scientific method relying on empiricism) didn't really exist when some of the books were being penned. - Jun 20 2005

English was good ;), but had a problem with the instructions. Seems to go all fine (no "errors") until I do:

xcompmgr -cfC

All I get returned is:
No composite extension

Then, while typing in transset, and then clicking on a window, I get:
Found property: 0.75
opacity 0xffffffff
Set Property to 1

I figure then I might have to specify the transparency, but:

[dw@localhost transset]$ transset.5
bash: transset.5: command not found

With regard to editing that code in, sorry to bother you again, but just where is that file? A search for XF86Config only returns a "sample" file by Nvidia.

Sorry for the hassle again; any help would be greatly appreciated. =) - Dec 28 2004
Very nice. Two questions: what icon theme is that, and just how did you manage all those cool transparency affects there. Never been able to do it myself... would appreciate any help in this. =) - Dec 27 2004
