For more realistic orbits, you could move the Earth code to be the first in the code (it is currently the last) then multiply each other planet's coefficient by it's distance from the Sun in AU:

coef1 = coef3 * 0.4
coef2 = coef3 * 0.7
coef4 = coef3 * 1.5
coef5 = coef3 * 5.2
coef6 = coef3 * 9.5
coef7 = coef3 * 19.6
coef8 = coef3 * 30 - Sep 02 2011

Please add a column with the configured Places to the Quick Access Plasmoid.
Places are made expressly for this purpose: to provide quick access to a
specific folder. Adding a separate Quick Access Plasmoid for each folder that
the user needs access to is ridiculous. Thanks.

I see that this app was last updatedin March 2009, but the readme still references Firefox <=1.5 only, so I have my doubts as to the accuracy of the rest of the information. What apps are known to work, and more importantly, what apps are still known to be problematic? Does Abiword work yet?

Furthermore, I have been STFW for a 32-bit KDE-4 Ubuntu deb file of this, but cannot find one. Does anyone know where to find such a beast?

Thanks! - Jul 20 2009

Please remove that rediculous screenshot and put something that lets us see what the application looks like. I am already familiar with Compiz, I don't need to see any effects in screenshots that are supposed to show what the application looks like. - Feb 03 2009

Hello Giuseppe, can you add an option for removing custom fonts from PDF documents? My university has ancient PDF documents (text, not images) that have a terrible font embedded in them and I have difficulty reading them (it is a pseudo-handwriting font)! This would be a terrific accessibility enhancement. Thanks. - Dec 07 2008
One tool that I really need is a tool to remove embedded fonts from PDF files. Can you add such a functionality? The trend at my university is to embed these terrible fonts that I can hardly read in distributed PDF files. A simple way to remove them would make my life much easier. Thanks! - Jun 08 2008

It would be nice if Kalendar could calculate the amount of workdays between two dates. That information is available in Korganizer's holidays. A workday-calculator would seriously be a killer feature for KDE. - Oct 23 2008

Here's your Bug #1:

There's more to come. Thanks! - Sep 18 2008
Thanks, I will wait a few days for you to settle in before I file bugs. You are going to hate me :) - Sep 18 2008
Thanks, very nice! Is there a bug tracker? I see a lot of room for improvement and I'd like to help. - Sep 18 2008
Thanks. I did realize that I had to install something, but I did not think to append the word Python to the beginning of it.

Now, the install seems to have finished with no errors, but I do not have a notefinder excecutable:

I get this when trying to install on Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE 3.5.10:

$ sudo python setup.py --root=/
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 33, in <module>
from setuptools import setup
ImportError: No module named setuptools

Any idea what to do? Thanks. - Sep 17 2008

Thanks, this really is one of the nicest cursor styles that I've found. Can you make a non-animated version? For one thing, Compiz has a compatibility problem with xfree and animated cursors do not work with my setup. For another, I know two people with vertigo, and the animated cursor is very disturbing for them to look at. Thanks! - Jun 08 2008

How do I get to the script configuration dialog? In Script Manager -> Options (translated) nothing pops up. And I do not see any other places whereby I might get to it.

Thanks.

I discovered your KMySignature application. It is almost exactly what I am looking for, congratulations on it. I also do not like Ksig as there is no documentation and no options, either! I really do not see what it is for.

However, to use it with Gmail, I'd like to be able to click the KMySignature icon and have it paste the signature in the cursor's location. As I see that you use Gmail too, you may also find this handy.

Will you consider this possibility? Thank you. - Oct 17 2006
