Messing around a bit I could finally install it. I have build two RPMS for SUSE 10.2 (updated), they are a bit home-made but they just work (libs. 0.14.6c, ks. 0.33).

You can find them here: http://people.sissa.it/~paulatto/ksynaptics/ - Jun 15 2007
I am trying to build ksynaptics from sourc (binary version is old) but running configure & make only produces documentation... I'm really puzzled by this. - Jun 15 2007

After hours without success I found the solution ten seconds after posting: SISCAN had to be enabled for the interface.

I enabled it with the command:

hciconfig hci0 piscan - Dec 28 2006
I am trying to make it work with this *** nokia phone. So I suppose it should use server mode. I am pretty sure that all the "anyremote" part is configured correctly, and the client software too.

Still the client cannot find any server so it is a problem in my bluetooth configuration.

What of the numerous services provided by bluez need to be working in order for the client to find the server? How can I test the configuration?

Many thanks for your great software. - Dec 28 2006

This improvement in cleary one of the best I have seen since now.

You could make it even better using different icons for different subfolders of the kioslave root.

e.g. the "wallpapers" folder could use the "folder_image" icon. It would be enough to place some .desktop virtual files in the folders; I don't know if it's easy feasible.

bye and thanks for your great work - Oct 31 2006

I forgot four lines of text: the correct message follows.

The problem: when running "./configure" you get the following output:

configure: loading site script kde
sed: read error on kde: Is a directory
KDE seems to be already running on this display.

then an xdialog window pops up and displat the following text:

Hi, thank you for you wondersul theme. I had a problem while compiling and I have found a quinck and dirty hack; I think it is an autoconf/aclocal problem.

The problem: when running "./configure" you get the following output:

then an xdialog window pops up and displat the following text:

and then configure fails and exits.

Cause: the string " kde " appears in your $ac_site_file, this cause the configurescript to execute ". kde" but kde is a directory.

Solution: in configure, about line 1433, change the following line:
  if test -r "$ac_site_file"; then
to
  if test -f "$ac_site_file"; then

then run ./configure; when it finishes run make.

make will execute autoconf and mess everything up things again. Let it fail then change the configure script again then run "./configure" and make again: this time it'll work.


Have fun! - Sep 18 2006

First I wish to thank you for your great software, it is definetly faster than writing bib at hand.

First of I have added this lines to my abbreviations:

PR|Phys. Rev.|Physical Review
PR|Phys. Rev. Lett.|Physical Review Letters
PR|Phys. Rev. A|Physical Review A
PR|Phys. Rev. B|Physical Review B

Second: network search does not work, or maybe I can't understand how it is supposed to work.

If I insert thew minimum information and than click on network lookup the status bar will show that it's lookin for info on www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov and crossref.org and than stop: nothing happens.

I'll suppose the retrieved html to be copied in the cb2bib window, even if it cannot be autoparsed.

Furthermore, I'll setup my own bookmark file if I could figure out how it works (as www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov definetly is *not* the right place for physics articles)

Last: clipboard connection could be tuned non to autopaste "internal" selections (e.g. I click on the "year" field it's autoselected, autopasted, autoparsed and messes up all the other fields). This is a minor problem, but it would be nice.

Bye and thanks. - Apr 04 2006

I have noticed that you app is really much faster than any linear menu in order to access applications.

It would be a great feature to be able to import the entire K menu (or part of it).

Unlukily it has become much harder since the introduction of freedsesktop "standards", if I can find the time I'll try to import the menu parser/generator code directly from the kicker.

Anyway, good work! - Dec 21 2005

It takes a while to get used to these cursor, but they look nice and they are the more "Plastik" around.

I took the original Neutral package (.tar.gz) and modified it.

The theme source is composed of png images, you can edit the images with any program (e.g. the Gimp).

In order to build the theme you need the utility xorg-x11 which is parte of the standard xorg-x11 package but may be out of your PATH.

The better way to learn is to download this theme or another and look at the sources (here they are in the sources/ subdirectory), have a look at the .in files and at the make.sh script.

If you just want to rebuild this theme change to sources/ directory and run ./make.sh - Dec 20 2005
I have used Crystalcursors 1.1 and neutra 1.12.

I had preferred jimmac+ccc but jimmac sources aren't avaiable and I didn't had time to rebuil it from scratch.
