You basically need to have PyKDE to get any use out of this... sorry for any problems you have with it :( - Aug 15 2003
Hmm.... Do any of the other panels work? If PyKDE is working, I would try using NoatunPanel instead of NoatunPanelSlow... NoatunPanelSlow doesn't use PyKDE. As well, I haven't tested it in a few versions, since I don't really maintain it much. I'll update/test it for the next version, I promise :)
Is there a way for this to work with single clicking?
Right-click on the panel and make sure that "Toggle locked position" is on. That should work...
Has anyone done an application launcher for this?
I'm not sure what you mean.... there is the QuickLaunchPanel, but if PyKDE isn't working it won't work either :(
optikSmoke you deserve total props for this, what an awesome job.
Thanks.... hearing stuff like that makes it all worthwhile (seriously) :). If you need more help fixing your problems, feel free to email me. - Aug 14 2003
I will take a look at running it under PyKDE 3.7 (I did not know it was released, I have been running 3.6 for quite some time), likely the problem is due to the newer bindings.
In any case, I will probably be releasing a minor update soon before I finish the config screen (not much time on my hands currently). The minor version will include a debug mode to make these problems easier to solve.
Sorry for all these problems....... :( - Aug 14 2003
Pressable buttons sounds good.... Actually, I will probably write some abstraction code to make that easy on myself, and then most everything will get three states: up, mouseover, and down.
Not too soon though....... this will probably come along in the version after next -- at the moment I am working on a full GUI configuration system in my spare time which will be the major change for the next version, along with some other small improvements. - Aug 09 2003
Thanks! Wait until the next version -- I'm writing a configuration GUI, plus more configurability/features, plus more speed improvements...... It'll be good :) - Jul 31 2003
It would take some code modification, but if you really want it I can cook up some instructions (or include an option in the next version). Do you want the K gone too?
If you mean any of the other panels, open up the config file (middle click on K -> click "Configure SlickBar") and then remove the corresponding xml tag for the panel you don't want. - Jul 24 2003
Anyway, I posted a fix for this a few comments down :) - Jul 16 2003
For everyone having troubles getting PyKDE to work on Mandrake 9.1, go to this site: http://mechanicalcat.net/tech/qt-NKR/
Download and install the qt rpms there.
Then, go here: http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/pykde/download.php
And follow the instructions to download/install PyQt and PyKDE.
PyQt/PyKDE won't work properly when compiled against the standard Mandrake qt libraries because they mispackaged them. - Jul 16 2003
If anyone running MDK needs help, just ask. I might write a tutorial on it... I'll have to dig in my memory to remember what I did. If you look on the PyKDE forums, there was some discussion of the problems, including updated qt RPMs that you need in order to get it to work. - Jun 24 2003
Which (BTW) will include (when I finish it) a slick, fast TaskPanel as well..... that's right, I haven't *completely* forgotten about SlickBar, even though I haven't released one in awhile :) - Jun 09 2003
I will be posting detailed SlickBar development docs later, too. - May 06 2003
"xmms-shell -e 'window playlist show' || xmms-shell -e 'window playlist hide'"
I'll include this in the next version. - Apr 12 2003
Including a taskbar in karamba would definitely not be something you could do using dcop calls, though. - Apr 12 2003
Never assume ..... :) - Apr 10 2003
Btw, I've updated slickbar to have the "captain podd" font you are missing, as well as the other suggestions people have indicated.
You were faster than me! :) - Apr 10 2003
Uhuh....... As has been said in a post above, Japan was ready to surrender. Indeed, if I remember my history class correctly, the bomb was not dropped to bring about their surrender, it was dropped to bring about their surrender *sooner*. Basically, the US and Russia had an agreement that after a set deadline (which I cannot recall -- though I remember it was to be not long after the bombs were dropped) Russia would have free reign to attack Japan. Thus, the US wanted Japan to surrender to them before that deadline to prevent Russia from taking Japan. Simply put, they did not want another Soviet state to bother them.
I'm not going to debate whether or not this was the "right thing to do", but if people are going to discuss the incident I would rather they do it with their facts straight. Other versions of this decision were often given for the simple reason that so many people were close to the event (in time). Basically, anyone who knows aobut history will tell you that the "full story" concerning many events is not available until 75-100 years later, after anyone involved is dead.
Anyway, as for Iraq... saying you can swoop in and "save" them with democracy is somewhat naive. Historically, democracy has best been acheived by change from within a country, not without (the only real exceptions to this I can think of are the result of the world wars, which were obviously special circumstances). And if we're going to look at examples, lets use something *recent* instead of something that happened over 50 years ago. In Afghanistan, the obvious example, change has lasted only as long as US media attention has been on the country. No more media, no more motivation for the US government, the country reverts. But Iraq will be different. Of course it will.- Mar 12 2003

BTW Thanks ALOT for the great picture of Rei ;) - Nov 17 2002
You can probably do something better, but in the interim here's something for all those people who are looking for a decent throbber to go with your amazing icons :)
