Can you use versioned tarballs in the future? It's a bit difficult to work with unversioned tarballs for distributions, especially source based (like Gentoo).

Also, I do have a crash with adblock enabled if I open one of the preview windows in kde-apps or kde-look and close it by clicking on the screnshot. I have a backtrace but didn't have time to fix it yet. - Jun 04 2006

I'm testing it right now for my laptop and seems a very good way to moderate the need not to have the passphrase stored for all the time, and the need to insert it everytime.

Might I suggest to use

#!/usr/bin/env krubyinit

as interpreter? so it would work for krubyinit on different path? - Nov 18 2005

Seems fine, but the .desktop file is a bit messed up. The Comment (in all the languages) is the default one, and it's installed in the old applnk directory instead than in ${prefix}/share/applications (xdg/fd.o).
It's also uncategorized, so just changing the place it's installed isn't enough. - Jun 04 2005

First and third errors should be fixed in cvs, and I"ll released an alpha2 version ASAP.

About the configuration about the number of row is interesting. Could you report it on, please? So that I can track it down when it's done.

Thanks for the comments, - Feb 20 2005
Thanks, every suggestion is welcome :)
Still remaining in the systray, as it's now, I think that showing the load in Kb or KB is quite unreadable.
Do you think that a percent load could be useful, too?

The better way to handle your request is anyway the KDE Bugzilla: .
Fill a wishlist item for KNetLoad product, so that I can track it down there.
You will be also informed when I'll implement it completely.

I haven't the pratical time to maintain a site for this with a bug report system (like :/
And in the webspace I'm using for my page I can't use mysql and php to set up a decent bug report system.

Anyway, I'm not having trouble changing the device I'm monitoring, the problem you have it's only for ppp0 or for every interface?
Have you the /sys interface set up or are you using the old 2.4 /proc interface?

Thanks - May 06 2004
Uhm, seems a missing include, but it's strange, because both sprintf and asprintf should be defined into stdio.h.

Which compiler version are you using? - May 05 2004
Now should be fixed. But I'm thinking if you have the /sys interface present.
If you don't, please mkdir /sys and mount -t sysfs none /sys (and add it to the fstab), else you'll continue using the old 2.4 interface. - May 04 2004
Should be fixed, there was a typo in the 2.4/2.6 kernel selection. This time is fixed. - May 04 2004
I think I found the problem, try the 2.1 release should work. - May 03 2004

The concept is the same, but I think it should be done in a more kde-ish way, like versioned dynamic-loading plugins.

And should be done after discussing it with all the developers.

Anyway yes, the base is that. - Feb 20 2005

Kipi is a project which allows DigiKam, GwenView, KimDaBa and ShowImg to use the same plugins.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to to be able to share import format for these. I actually don't know how GwenView, DigiKam, KimDaBa and ShowImg loads the images for themselves, but maybe it's possible to share the loading functions into a single structure, like kipi (or even within kipi itself), so that we have a general way to load images from every application (and maybe, in the future kde4, within konqueror itself!).

I know they are complex plans and requires a lot of work, but maybe for the not-so-near future we will waste lesser programming resources than now (see ). - Feb 20 2005
So why don't create one, with all the features of the others? Maybe developed by a merged team of developers of different image viewers.

Adding different way to manage the interface, merging the features and so on would help users.

Having too many image viewers is a bad thing for newbie and also experts users, because they won't find what they need.

I know this is a difficult project, and that biodiversity is good, but we are having too many partially good solutions to the problem, instead of one good solution. - Feb 20 2005
I've tried your KSquirrel, and the antialiasing is quite good. But what does not make me happy is the fact that this is yet another image viewer.
We have way too much viewers at the moment.
Why don't you simply get in touch with developers of other image viewers and work on something like kipi, adding a single, central framework for image decoders, so that every application using KDE framework is able to get them working right?
Maybe at least for version 4.

This way we can spare development energy for dupe-apps. - Feb 20 2005

you are permitting 1-bit subnets, and you don't remove the 2 "unusable" subnets that afaik are the one with all the bits of the prefix equal to zero or to one (this excludes 1-bit subnets to be created).
