bat files are windows... it's / instead of \ when showing fully qualified paths (Linux isn't dyslexic) and finally with sun java1.5 and the mysql connector recommended it just hangs if I do

java -jar MySqlview.jar

It might also be worth noting that SuSE and RH both have roots in Slackware. There is also another very important early distro missing. Ygdrassil. This is important because it was the first CD based distribution with installer.

Also Gentoo really has roots in the LFS project and more importantly it was a direct split from Sorceror Linux, not an independent start. Both Arch Linux and Sorceror predated Gentoo. I'd put it as
-------->sorceror--->Gentoo
|
lfs ------>
|
-------->Arch Linux

Finally there are some key missing distro's from the east. Turbo Linux (Japan) Easy-Linux-kr, Hancom and Alzza (Korea) (All Red Hat based) and more. Some helpful info available here http://www.linuxhq.com/dist.html old page but still useful for this project

I'm not complaining.. but in my own inept way trying to add to something of value. - Aug 17 2006

Perhaps a bug I've noted here http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=30372
can be addressed. The full description is there but basically it has something to do with the way it keeps its session/tab ID. When a tab is closed it get's "lost". If you open tabs 1 2 3 and 4 close tab 2, then KDE try's to do a shift left one on 3 and 4 but Yakuake doesn't recognize this. So now Tab ID in yakuake and KDE are out of sync. The only way to get back in sync is to close yakuake. - Mar 19 2006
That you mean 2006-01-14 ... otherwise ... I really really am late. *grin* Thanks. - Jan 08 2006
Ok I've put up code on kde-XXX.org that is designed to autmatically rename the yakuake session. And it does work using this command

dcop $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION renameSession "`echo $PWD | sed s,^$HOME,~,`"

However the problem comes with the value of $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION after a term window has been closed For example:

I open 4 sessions A B C D Now if I check each sessions value for $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION I will find that

A=0
B=1
C=2
D=3

All is right with the world, using my "app" I posted here, the name in the session tab reflects my location in the directory Tree of the system I'm on. However if I close a session, say I close session C, and check the $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION values I will have:

A=0
B=1
D=3

But when I move around the tree only A and B work as before .. D and any new session I open don't work. Further testing shows that although $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION's value didn't change, the true value of D (and those that follow) have all been dropped by one. It seems that the underlying software is carrying the values

A=0
B=1
D=2 (instead of 3)

If I force the value of $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION to be a constant that is one less in the above command then D gets its name changes as before.

What seems to happen is that when a session is closed yakuake re-organizes the sessions. This is fine. However it doesn't update correctly the session variable with dcop. - Oct 24 2005
I went ahead and put my rename wrapper up on kde-look with a problem as stated here.

http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=30372

Seems to be something in the session management that causes the problem, but I'm not yet good enough to figure out what the problem is. But on the upside. It does work outside of that problem and it keeps my head straight as to what tab is what. - Oct 18 2005
I just about had things figured out on getting "auto" name changing of the yakuake tabs working and you go and change how the tabs are named on me *grin*. Back to the drawing board, and hopefully this eliminates the problem caused when you close a tab and then open a new one.

Thanks! (seriously I like the produc) - Oct 18 2005
SWEET! Expect to see "yakuakewrap" released soon. It does deliver the variable differently than konsole does for some reason. No problem just a difference to overcome thanks! - Oct 15 2005
First I love this product. Second I'm trying to mod one of my other favs, konsolewrap so that it does for YaKuake what it does for konsole. Automatically renames the session name in the tab depending on where/how you are connected.

Given that if I try this command:

dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRenameItem 0 hello

The first session gets renamed to hello, however if I try this:

dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRenameItem $DCOP_YAKUAKE_KONSOLE hello

It returns an error that not enough arguments are used (SlotRenameItem needs 2 ID and String) So then I try:

echo $DCOP_YAKUAKE_KONSOLE

It returns an empty "string" so either I've misunderstood what you are doing or something isn't happening as you would like. - Oct 15 2005
Over all I love what it does. One feautre request one "bug"

1. Would it be possible to tie into the rename feature for tabs that konsole has? The dcop command is dcop

$KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION renameSession

(as gleaned from konsole wrap which I use everywhere I go) In my case this helps a lot in giving me a clue as to where I am in the tree as well as what box I'm on.

2. The "bug" when using shadows via kompgr. The shadow doesn't roll up. Don't know if this is your problem or kompmgr's for sure... but... it is problematic.

Thanks!!!! - Oct 07 2005

Amen, Individual ability to modify at least to the extent that it can match the persons desktop is a must. Also there should be ways to properly integrate with the various Linux Distro's. Mandriva's menu is tight and compact where the Fedora Menu is less compacted and more one level.

Sorry thought the work is quality, I'm forced to spend all day trying to type into documents and windows on windows. When every 20 seconds another one of these stupid little windows pops up with totally useless messages like "Found new hardware....(then after 2 minutes) It's a USB mass storage device each and every bloody one of them stealing focus and demanding I acknowledge it. NO thank you. I'd prefer to rip it out and stomp it into oblivion. Now if this is an opt in package. OK, however I've a really neat way of telling things. If I've plugged in my mouse, and I wiggle it and the cursor moves. I don't need son of clippy telling me that I plugged in a USB mouse! I know where my hand goes and I watched it do it. I wiggled the mouse and the cursor moved, don't need the pop up! Same for other USB devices. If I plug them in and the icon appears on the desktop... they worked..... if it doesn't appear.... I need to check my logs .... Sorry I applaud the effort just boo the result. - Oct 04 2005

I resently installed dbKalendar for my wife on her box. (Mandrake LE2005 updated with KDE3.4.2) Problem is, she needs/uses Linux with full on Korean. As a result the day and date don't get displayed. They instead end up as essentally garbage characters. Coolvetic Font is installed but the default in her case is for her KDE to use Unicode so perhaps this is at the root.

..... but this system of menu management is called XDG and is in line with the LSB standards generated by the Freedesktop.org people. Debian started this process with Mandrake close behind. The concept is that no matter what desktop you chose for personal use the menu remains the same. So now using Gnome and KDE apps on each others, or and entirely different desktop is a lot easier.


But check out what is being done with XDG at http://freedesktop.org I think you are going to like what you see. Then thank the folks with the LCC for pushing for broader adhesion to the LSB. - Apr 27 2005
