I think that would be a great idea. I have sent you e-mail from my home account. :-)

The 0.4.0 version has fixed several of my complaints. I will do a bit more testing and get back to you with the rest of them soon.

Oh . . . I've updated the ebuild for 0.4.0. The link above will take you to it. - Apr 27 2006
I like where this app is headed, and encourage you to keep working on it. I think it will be a boon to KDE. To assist in its uptake/testing, I have written a Gentoo Ebuild for it, available at

I have a couple of glitches/wishes, but I'll add those in a separate message. - Apr 19 2006

Thanks for fixing the UPnP plugin. The difference between rc1 and rc2 is the difference between being unusable and usable.

I can finally put Azureus aside, and use KTorrent. Keep up the good work! - Jan 27 2006

I have obvioulsy failed to put the right kde dependencies in the ebuild. I will try to get it fixed soon and release an update. - Dec 24 2005
What version of OpenAL do you guys have installed? When I tested the e-build I didn't have it on my system yet, so it pulled down the latest version. - Dec 24 2005

Yay! - Aug 07 2005
My wireless adapter is configured as eth1 on my laptop. Running wlassistant causes it to exit with a "no adapters found" (or whatever) message.

The adapter is in, and has already pulled down an IP address via DHCP from the campus network.

Any suggestions? - Aug 03 2005

I honestly couldn't tell you. I just re-used some of mitre's screenshots for this. - May 02 2005
The ebuild was generating index.theme files, but apparently not to KDE's satisfaction. I switched back to "index.desktop" files, and KDE seems to like those.


I'll try to figure out what it takes to get an index.theme file formatted so KDE likes it, but at least the ebuild seems to be working in the meantime.

My apologies for such a boneheaded error. - May 02 2005
I've updated the "License" section of the ebuilds. They now say, "Multiple licenses. Please see the Homepage for more information" - May 01 2005

This beats the hell out of the crappy old ink monitor theme I kludged together for Karamba 0.17, back in the day! I just went digging for it in the archives and it's still there, but I released it before there was even a "Karamba" section on kde-look. It sucked. *heh*

Yours is much, much better. I think I'll get it set up when I get home, and keep tabs on the ol' C62.

Great job! - Mar 18 2005

I just downloaded 0.7.2, and it looks awesome. I especially like the MP3 auto-import function.

One question though: will it build without aRts? I passed the --without-arts flat to "./configure," but it crapped out, complaining about . . . not being able to find aRts!

I built and installed it _with_ aRts on my laptop, but I'm trying to wean the desktop system off of its aRts dependency, and was wondering if that was an option. - Feb 14 2005

Way to live up to a challenge, man.

The SFX idea mentioned above would be cool. Not necessary, but cool.

Even without those, this is an amazing Karamba theme. Kudos to you! - May 18 2004

It's correct. - May 14 2004
I downloaded the CVS version, and it once again compiled and ran just fine. But when I try to connect:

Trying to connect to "(vpn concentrator name)" with user "(my user)" and IPSec ID "(my ID)"
Process started.
/usr/bin/vpnc: authentication unsuccessful

I can replicate this error running vpnc-connect manually by typing in the wrong password. I'm sure that I've entered my password correctly in kvpnc.

Hope this helps! - May 13 2004
It doesn't work for me. It compiles and runs just fine, but when I try to connect to the VPN at work, I get "authentication error" in the debug window.

Running vpnc-connect by hand works just fine.

Weird. - May 13 2004

I like this design, and I like this idea. But one thing, please: The "Go!" button is, in my opinion, lame. Too big a step towards dumbing it waaaaaaay down. What is wrong with "Login?" Do we need to protect users from that scary computer term?

Sorry. Pet peeve. ;-)

Nice design, though. - Mar 21 2004

This is a great idea, and one that really should be implemented. We got ACLs on Samba working at work, and imagine my dismay when the smb kio_slave wouldn't show the extened permissoins on shared folders!

Will This forum let you edit your posts?

Anyway, I moved the ebuild:

This one in particular is in the "net-wireless" section.

I whipped together a Gentoo ebuild for this:

Just cd to your PORTDIR_OVERLAY, tar -zxvf it into there, and then "emerge kwireless"

It works fine for me running the KDE 3.2 CVS ebuilds. So far I've tested it on a Dell Latitude D800 using the ndiswrapper driver.

Sweet app! Thanks for making it!

My apologies for that stupid, stupid error. I've uploaded a new e-build that should fix the problem.

I don't have access to a Gentoo system here, so this isn't an -r1 ebuild like it should be.

Thanks for pointing it out, everyone. - Apr 15 2003
I've now included the scripts in the e-build.

I also added an /etc/env.d stub for karamba, to put /usr/share/apps/karamba/scripts in the $PATH. - Apr 09 2003
And thanks for calling me on the shortcut. Something had redefined my PORTDIR_OVERLAY in my make.conf file, so instead of troubleshooting it like I should have, I took the quick way out. ;-)

Should be better now. - Apr 09 2003

1) You configured the script

If you have SSH set up to log in to the remote machine without a password, just make the following change:

Instead of:
my @ink = `$prog -q -i -r $raw`;


my @ink = `ssh $HOST $prog -q -i -r $raw`;

Substituting the name of the remote computer for $HOST, of course. That should work. - Apr 12 2003
