kio_p7zip

System Software by rgfernandes 19 comments

Excellent work. It'd be great to see it ported to the 7zip library. As you stated, relying on an executable has some serious drawbacks.

I'm just wondering why you named the KIO slave "p7zip:/". Wouldn't "7zip:/" or "7z:/" make a lot more sense? p7zip is just the name of the 7zip port to Linux, and really has nothing to do with the file format itself.

Anyway, that's just a suggestion. Keep up the good work.

Oh, and have you considered adding support to open .tar.7z files in a single step? - Apr 10 2006
KDE open/save dialogs for Mozilla

Various Stuff by djworld 14 comments

I'm quite interested in this project, but I think I need something a little more stable for full time use.

For those of you looking for a stabler alternative, you can get a nice KDEsque file picker by doing the following:

1. Find the original nsFilePicker.js as described above and open (as root) it in you favourite text editor.

2. Find the following section:
--------------------------------------
compMgr.registerFactoryLocation(FILEPICKER_CID,
    "FilePicker JS Component",
//@line 278 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
    "",
//@line 280 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
    fileSpec,
    location,
    type);
--------------------------------------

and change it so it looks as follows:

--------------------------------------
compMgr.registerFactoryLocation(FILEPICKER_CID,
    "FilePicker JS Component",
//@line 278 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
    FILEPICKER_CONTRACTID,
//@line 280 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
    fileSpec,
    location,
    type);
--------------------------------------

3. You must then refresh the chrome registry (whatever that really means) by installing or unistalling an extension.

4. Restart Firefox/Thunderbird and do a "Save Link as..." and you should have a much more KDE friendly file picker.

While this obviously isn't as good as having the official KDE file dialogues, it can certainly make saving and opening files less painful. - Feb 07 2006

What parts do you feel should be smoother? The button icons and text, or something else? - Oct 11 2005

Installation is easy:

1. Download the .wsz file and move it to ~/.xmms/Skins .

2. Fire up XMMS and press ALT+S to open the skin browser.

3. Select the skin from the list and the XMMS windows should be instantly reskinned. - Oct 11 2005
