Hi, this looks soooo gooood! I really want to try & use it, but I have problems compiling.
As I can't find another forum or mailinglist, I will post my error here (sorry):

Hi,
first of all, congrats to your cool addition to KDE! It's badly needed, and I'm already using it daily.
I'd like to mention some ideas though, to IMHO improve usability:
- let the user specify a timeout for showing the dialog, so that it vanishes if it's not clicked during this timeout
- use the standard KDE icon dialog for the choosing of an icon. How am I (a humble user) supposed to know in which hidden directory my krusader icon is buried?
- give the possiblity to use a real path instead of the KDE media:/ stuff, so the user can get size info for his removables. To check this, use krusader and your tool to open your usbstick/anything else. It will open in media:/*** and display that it can't get size info for nonlocal devices. Now go to /media/*** (the exact directory where your device is mounted) and you will get size info. Should probably be implemented in media:/-kioslave, but this problem will probably persist at least until KDE 3.5
- last but not least, a little bug, but I don't know where the exact problem lies: my blank dvd+rws get recognized as media/blankcd

But as said above, a great tool with a great perspective!
Thanks,

CopyCover (amaroK Script)

Amarok 1.x Scripts by gauret 143 comments

This version (1.4) is working absolutely fantastic (for the first time for me, seems I hit that bug too after the first three albums)! Thanks a lot, great work!
I just had to work out why it was still stopping half-through, turned out that I didn't have write permission on all folders. Found that on the console I started Amarok from, otherwise it's hard to find.
But, for me it works, so thanks again!
Bye,

Wireless Assistant

Network by pnawrocki 287 comments

Multiple device detection works for me here, thanks a lot!
Next problem for me is that almost all networks I use don't broadcast their essid and thus are not detected by iwlist scan. Perhaps at some point an option for manually applying previously saved settings could be added?
Thanks for your great work,

Hi, thanks for your efforts! Your program is most needed! Sadly my wireless interfaces don't get detected. I don't know how you do it, but this is the output from iwconfig:

Perhaps you have an idea why these interfaces don't get recognised...
Thanks very much,

Oh, right now I notice 1.2 is out already, so I mean 1.3... - Apr 01 2005

Amarok 1.x Scripts by gauret 143 comments

Ah, I see. I hoped it would recurse through all available albums and add the corresponding picture to the directory, so one could get all pictures transferred with one step. Perhaps this would be a possible feature addition for 1.2?
Thanks,

CopyCover (amaroK Script)

Amarok 1.x Scripts by gauret 143 comments

This is exactly the thing I was waiting for! Thanks very much!
For me the PyQt-warning also didn't show up.
Now, how do I run this script? I can configure it (f.e. enable folder icon changes), but if I click on run, nothing happens (besides the icon left of the script name changing to play/run). Is there anything else I need to activate?
Thanks,

The Reinhardt Style (formely Slicker)

KDE 3.5 Themes by leinir 97 comments

Hi,
thanks for that great style!
Unfortunately, I'm experiencing some transparency problems to, especially in amaroK. I have two screenshots, one taken directly after amaroK started (http://www.wfeld.de/kde/snapshot3.png), the other one after I changed the appearance to another one and back to the current (http://www.wfeld.de/kde/snapshot4.png). Hope this helps a bit,

Hi,

I have only the first part of the error:
QMetaObject::findSignal:GVFileDetailView: Conflict with QListView::doubleClicked(QListViewItem*,const QPoint&,int)

I have recompiled (emerged as I am on Gentoo) Gwenview several times now. I think this started with my upgrade to Qt 3.3.0 (In the course of this I also reemerged my whole KDE 3.2). I've noticed that I don't get exif tag reading anymore in Gwenview, and I blame this error for it. Perhaps some Qt incompatibility? - Feb 13 2004
