This last version (2.0.3) works better on Debian ;-). Thanks, that's definitely a great application!
It actually didn't work at once. In libs/NextShowsConfig.py, I had to:
- comment out line 881 (QIcon() not defined).
- add "QtGui" as prefix of qApp.processEvents (orelse: unknown command)

Btw, Could you provide, in addition to the Gui, a simple command line version that would just perform a "write episode list" (just parsing the config file, using your formatEpisode and formatWhen tools and getting rid of the superkaramba libs). I want to get the info faster ;-)

I can do it if you want but you'll be faster than me at taking the minimum required functions. - Nov 29 2007
Same issue here, basically same configuration...

Is it linked to the PyQT 4.3 problem? - Oct 14 2007

Quick update on that. I do not know a damn thing about US Football... but apparently you can see the scores on:
http://www.nfl.com/scores

I looked at the page source View/Page Source under Firefox) and it doesn't look very difficult to retrieve the info...

Looks like you are going to parse HTML pages... happy? :-D - Sep 13 2007
Hey :)

Have a look to my code, the only thing for you to find is a website that would display the US Football results in an easy-to-understand HTML format...

Then you just need to get used to Python Expat Parser (easy as pie!) and you modify my theme so to realize your dream ;-)

Find such a site and I'll help you if you wish.

Btw, I was told to change soccer to football by a European fellow... wasn't all my fault ;-) - Sep 13 2007
Btw, you might also be very interested by another Football software of mine (kommander script but based on console-executable python scripts):
http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/KFootStats+%2819+Championships%21%29?content=46131

I personnaly use it only in console (very handy), it works as follows:

classement $COUNTRY
resultats $COUNTRY

where classement means "ranking", resultats means "results" and $COUNTRY is the first 3 letters of the country you want... in French... so
* default is France
* ANG is England
* ESP is Spain
* ITA is Italy
* (...)

Enjoy. - Aug 14 2007
Thanks a lot.
Because the new season is coming, I guess I'll try to make a few changes.

First, because the site I take the info from changed quite a bit, when clicking on the scores, scorers are not displayed anymore... this'll be fixed in no time.

Then i'll try to make it translate automatically at least the "Termine" and "Mi-temps" in "Finished", "Half-Time". This won't take long.

And at last, maybe i'll make a menu so to choose only the championships of your interest.

If you have other suggestions... - Aug 14 2007

Hi,

The backgrounds were in use for a previous version, I do not even know if they still fit to the "window" size. If you still want to have one, uncomment the line:
# karamba.createBackgroundImage(widget, 0, 0, "fond2.png")
and maybe Gimp'ize the fond2.png file to suit your wish.

As for the colour, you have a bunch of :
karamba.changeTextColor(widget, theText, R,G,B)
in the code. You may want to change those also.

Every textebox is in fact representing a column and not a line in the widget.

If you still have problems, do not hesitate to post a message.

Hey, looks like you dunno the mysteries of Superkaramba. Just rename the .skz into .zip, unzip it and the source is in the .py... as usual.
I made a few programs like these that parse HTML/XML webpages, with Python and Expat, it's easy as pie ;-) - Jun 07 2007
Well, I tried this one but it looks like you cannot really dump HTML content without a kind of grant... weird. I found another one, coded like crap, maybe i'll try to make a move towards this one.
I keep looking and will try to release something where you could choose the countries you're interested in. - Jun 01 2007

Ok, now it should work for any competition. Do not hesitate to report any other issue/evolution request... - Jun 28 2007
I thought of this. I can't set any bold/italic... stuff but I can either:
- Set winners in uppercase/currently playings in lowercase
- Add a "(W)" to winner's name

I'll have a look into it asap - Jun 04 2007

It should work... and actually does on my PC. Maybe you need to unpack the .skz (rename it .zip and extract) and then you may be able to see the background if you lanch the .theme file.
As for the weather, it's Paris man! I've been 4 years there, now I moved to Nice/Cannes... awefully better! ;-) - Jun 01 2007
Sorry, hadn't packaged the right file... this is ok now,
Enjoy ;) - May 31 2007
For the color thing, I already know... my Mom (my first supporter under Linux: i forced her into removing Windows :p) already asked me for an all-white version.
Male or female... I'm not sure it is so easy because of the HTML content in fact but I'll look into this.
Last point, I think I can easily tag the player that is currently serving... which can be useful in the intensity of a tie-break!

Do not hesitate to ask for more... again I did this one quickly on Sunday when it was raining on Paris, so that all the matches were cancelled... not easy to work on my soft!

And again, again, if you also like soccer, do not hesitate to check out my "Karamba Live Football" theme ;-) - May 29 2007
Well... didn't have the opportunity to see any tie-break on Sunday :p, so this issue didn't appear to me... I'll try to change that, or at least to remove the details of the tie break, because it's not so relevant. - May 29 2007

Well, I'll have a look at this... in the meantime, you can modify the height of the .theme file, it should make the scrolling a bit weird but it won't break anything.
However, you already have 7 matches displayed and you can SCROLL UP/DOWN with your mouse wheel to see the others... knowing that rarely more 7 matches are unfolding simultaneouly in Roland Garros... - May 29 2007

When I try to get weather from Nice (France) thru BBC weather, it hangs, crashes and then there is no way to reload the theme but... by removing `~/.superkaramba/lwp' folder, which is a shame...
Can you work this out? - Jun 13 2007

I had a look on allocine.com, it could actually be interesting to plug something on this.
The ads being that:
* you may see "weekly-updated" new movies (so that every week it changes)
* release dates are French ones...

The cons are numerous:
* the movie picture is small
* the trailer is a flash video and flvget (to get flash from website) doesn't wok with allocine.

The idea, if you want to contribute, would be to find out a way to get these videos downloadable.
I think I can manage the rest.

Au boulot! - Jun 10 2007
Salut Eric,

That could be a bit of a problem. In fact, these info (pics, trailers...) are taken from an Apple XML page and everything in there is in English.
If ever Apple made a French version of that (it was used for their multimedia deck), then it'll be easy for me to get the translations... but I don't think it already exists. I'll gather some info from Mac users to know that...
And btw, it makes your English better ;-) - Jun 09 2007
Smaller version has just been released
Enjoy :-) - May 26 2007
Well, actually I've already received a few comments like this... I think a 5-second slideshow would really be a pain: first because it's disturbing on the desktop and second because you may want to see the credits, the movie trailer etc... and not be disturbed by changing pictures meanwhile.
My idea then is to set a timer that would change the pic every other minute or so and that would be reinitialized as soon as there is any activity around the theme... so not to be disturbed...

Coming soon! - May 10 2007
I do not think so... I made another theme that displays pictures of my friends, and changes every 10min... it's already too much annoyance to see your desktop change like this... I'd rather not play with that.

By the way, every 2h, the theme is reloaded and first picture is randomly chosen. :-) - May 01 2007
I'll try to release a new smaller version... this needs for me to change all my text sizes etc... because I coded it very awfully (it was not supposed to be shared :p) but when i find some time... - May 01 2007
I agree on the fact that you have to wait a couple seconds to get sure our movie is being launched... I'll try to make something to warn you about that.

By yet, I do not want ugly additional stuff on this theme.

I'll see what I can do that would keep discrete - May 01 2007
I fixed the bug... that should be okay now. I keep your idea in mind for further improvements. By the way I realized that launching the trailer by clicking on the whole theme may lead to some unfortunate clicks...
Maybe I'll add some icons that would appear once your mouse is over the theme... - Apr 29 2007
Well, actually, if you have a quick look to my code, you would see that the links to movie trailers are taken from an XML page that, let's say, I "found" on the Internet :-p.
These are next-to-come American movie releases...
The only things I can add to this theme are the information provided by this XML data page. By the way, in the tar file I provided, there is a sample (called current.xml) of such an XML file. You can have a look at it to see how 'far' I can extend 'OSD Movies' - Apr 28 2007

I guess it's a selfish consideration but I like mine better :-). I like the idea of being able to see actors, director and release dates. Maybe can you integrate that also in the theme?
I see that you cache pics at startup, which is great... my theme being a bit slow because of this sometimes.
If you want to share ideas, do not hesitate!
And, by the way, I have other themes that you may like/want to rework also.
Great job still ;-) - May 26 2007

The thing is... it doesn't work at all on my machine. I've struggled a while with the code to go through the steps... but it gets stuck in initialization phase.
So I just did that theme quickly for me basically, didn't really intend to share it at first before I was told into doing it... - May 14 2007

I really do not think this is the place for political contents.
At least propose a version for people who like him... that's called "equity"; and btw, they are more numerous...

Hope it's your first and last theme of the like on this site... - May 07 2007

Konverter sounds really great and I like it already but can't use it :p... it crashes as soon as I click on the "browse input file" button; if I copy the link in the blank, I get "can't find file" :'(.
I actually took the debian package, I'm on Kubuntu kernel 2.6.12.
Thx... - Aug 02 2006

I've got some trouble with displaying the lists of "recent docs", "websites"... all seem to work fine (I see the display and so on) but not a word appears even if, in the case of places and websites, the two files places.kuartet and websites.kuartet are correctly edited...
Any reason why?

I really love this pic... don't really understand anything about "legacy" and stuff... anyway, is there any possibility Slackware's 'S' be replaced by some "more Ubuntu-like" thing in a next version? - Feb 10 2006
