in Mageia-5.1 on my main computer, the app installs and appears in the Widget Bar of the Main Panel. Despite 3 of OS re-installs the app shows a fail to load message claiming a file problem. Yet on another computer which I have, the app works perfectly. Any Ideas please. Please tell me all the files that must be installed because i have tried many. Thanks in advance. John - Oct 24 2017

I believe that you are not spelling correctlty the word you intend. The word is LOSE (the opposite of Win) and not LOOSE.

I am in root state in konsole and have unzipped and cd into the package.

What do you suggest ???. A beautiful set and would like to use it.

I don't mean to nitpick but the view is not a sunset. Trinity Beach faces the East.
What you are seeing is the Eastern evening sky as the sun is setting in the West.

Nice Picture though.

Hello sirijar.
Your work looks fine.
In the third image I see near the bottom that you used the word choosed.
The word you need here is CHOSE.
Not nit-picking because it is not your native language. I wish I was as capable at speaking more than just English.

About as much as most of the other wallpapers that are posted here have to do with kde, namely zilch.

Being wallpapers, why should they have to be in some way connected to kde.

It is just your snide way of saying you don't like it and think that you may be able to get it taken down.

You don't like it then don't download it . It is as simple as that. Grow up.

The fact that I have not posted anything of my own doesn't mean a thing except in the minds of ultra egotists with no manners.
I have never designed or built or flown a Boeng 747 either but does not stop me from liking its looks and features and admiring the skills of those who designed, made and fly these massive machines. Nor does it inhibit me or exclude me from flying in them.

Hello Antonio.

Having an install problem.
GSTreamer and latest Taglib, and their devel packages as well, are installed.
I am running Mandrake 10.1-OE and all its updates.

The ./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` runs with no problems and no errors and says to proceed to "make".

When I run make I get the following error as shown below:-

First a correction to my earlier post. My current filelight is version 1.2 and it did install normally before I upgraded to 10.1 from 10, so that is going aok.

I have tried the install both vers 1.4 and also 1.5 from both account and from root but get exactly the same error.
I have also just about installed everything pertaining to KDE including devel files and did it by installing a couple extra at a time to see if I could find which one or two make the difference but still no luck.

John. - Nov 13 2004
Hello. I had version 6.xx running aok on Mandrake10-OE and have done a urpmi to take it up to 10.1-OE and everything seems to be running fine in that aspect.

I have downloaded your new version and exactly followed your install instructions in detail. At the completion of the process I get the following error message as follows :-

checking for mcopidl... /usr/bin/mcopidl
checking for artsc-config... /usr/bin/artsc-config
checking for meinproc... /usr/bin/meinproc
checking for kconfig_compiler... /usr/bin/kconfig_compiler
checking for dcopidlng... /usr/bin/dcopidlng
checking for makekdewidgets... not found
configure: error: The important program makekdewidgets was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

[root@DETHERMY filelight-1.0-beta4]#

I have not been able to find what program provides this "makekdewidgets"
so maybe you can direct me.

What is strange is that upon checking my current install of filelight, I find that it now identifies itself as version 1.0-beta2 and seems to be working but I am not sure.

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance.

I guess one just wastes ones time with some things. Especially after hearing nothing by way of reply after twelve days.

Great shame really because it really is a nice piece of work but I suppose now that the originator has posted it, he ignores it from now on.

Very disappointing.

John. - Nov 04 2004
It will not install properly into Mandrake10-OE.
For starters it is in zip form instead of the required gz. Second it has no preview.png and although I repackaged the apps with your preview picture from here and made it a gz package, while it appears in the Mandrake Look & Feel SplashScreens
it still does not open or operate and it defaults to the standard splash screen.

Any ideas would be welcome because I especially like the look of your splash screen.

Yes same goes for me. The other guy just beat me to it. The new version install went AOK as I had described to you for the earlier version. Right clicking shows that the programme has upgraded to the new version 1.10 OK and all is working OK in that monitoring is proceeding normally. I do not need to reopen the configuration panel since there is nothing I need to change but I just ran a check of everything and found that the Config.panel would not open.

By the way. Thanks for your hard work and endeavour, it is sincerely appreciated by the likes of me who would not even know where to start with something like this.

Well have I got Great news for you.

There is no longer a problem for anyone to install your program into Mandrake10 OE.
There is no need to alter lines or move items from one spot to another manually or make any changes at all.

I just right clicked on the tarball and selected "Actions" then "Extract here". I went into ROOT (and did not do a "su" ) and opened konsole and typed cd /"place where the knemo was located" and pressed Enter.
Typed in ./configure --prefix=/usr

The above is CRITICAL.

Then I did "make" then "make install". Closed konsole and went back in to my account and there waiting for me was the Welcome to the Configuration Panel waiting for me. Clicked DEFAULT and the three interfaces eth0, eth1 and sit0 appeared. Deleted the eth1 and sit0, highlighted eth0 and clicked on APPLY then the little Icon appeared on the Taskbar i.e. the panel.
A left click on the icon raised an "Interface Status" panel and which was running nicely.

Checked that knemo was in KDE Control Centre......Components.......Service Manager and there it was in Startup Services and appropiately ticked.
This was all done on a newley installed Mandrake 10 on my second hard drive so was totally clear of anything I had done on my main Mandrake 10

Is it possible to get a larger icon since I am using a 21" Monitor and the Icon looks so tiny on the panel

I happened on the solution only by accident. Just for the hell of it I thought I would use the ./configure --prefix=/usr to see what would happen because I had seen it used by a number of other different packages. It worked.
Thanks for your very good effort in helping me solve the problem. Your advice pointed me into the right line of procedures.
Hope to hear from you about the Icon size.
Cheers. John. - Jul 11 2004

Thanks for your reply.

There is no entry in the KDE Control Centre, Components, Service Manager although the Startup Services such as kmilo etc., are there.

I ran kcmshell kcm_knemo and got the following :-

[john@BIGPOND john]$ su
[root@BIGPOND john]# kcmshell kcm_knemo

ICE default IO error handler doing an exit(), pid = 29634, errno = 2

As you can see the console has stopped at that point. The Mutex destroy...... it started all by itself, I DID NOT start it. Strange huh ??

I tried the dcop kded kded loadModule knemod and got the following result:-

[root@BIGPOND john]# dcop kded kded loadModule knemod
ERROR: Couldn't attach to DCOP server!
[root@BIGPOND john]#

I perhaps should mention that I am using an Alcatel500 Modem/Router and have connected it via the LAN connection on my ASUS A7N8X-E-Deluxe Mainboard using eth0. I expect that this probably doesn't make any difference.

I hope this info gives you some more insight into the trouble and you can guide me further.

Thanks in advance. JOHN. - Jul 11 2004
I have installed as you recommended for Mandrake 10. OE including the lines changes. Did not find the kcm_knemo.desktop in the location you mentioned, In fact did not find a folder named Internet in that place. Located kcm_knemo.desktop in the Knemo Folder used for installing and copied it to the location you recommended. Have rebooted but cannot find anything in Mandrake Control Centre that even vaguely looks like knemo in "Network and Internet" or in "Systems ---> Services".

Are there some other things that also need to be done to enable a correct install into Mandrake 10 ??? or am I just looking in the wrong places ???

I look forward to hearing from you and thanks. John - Jul 10 2004
Hello there.

I am getting the following error message when trying to install on to Mandrake 10 OE ( I have already carried out your instructions ref special note about Mandrake 10 )

:-checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!

I have Qt3.3 installed but cannot find this library qt-mt in anything.

Any help welcome please since I am using ADSL through LAN so have no indications of what is happening when connected (all the time). Your Apps would seem to fit the bill.

I used Mandrake 9.0 9.1 9.2 and now 10.

The Kde Login has ALWAYS been fully configurable as compared with the others you mentioned which in MY opinion are quite ugly. Except for personal reasons I would show you how mine looks (it includes personal images) All my friends who have seen it love it.

Your suggestion looks reasonable except that it looks more like Microsoft than anything else but if that is what you like then thats OK. Personally nowadays I can't stand any thing that even hints of Microsoft. - Mar 21 2004

I can see in the screen shots that BIGPOND has been used. I guess from this that the author is also maybe an Aussie as myself. If that is the case then this means this tool should be right for me. Is that correct ??? I am just about to join the ADSL brigade after 4 years of Bigpond Dialup. Please let me know as I am going to download your programme in advance.
