Version 1.2 for KDE 4 has arrived!
+++ News +++ News +++


Kannasaver is a screensaver for people who want to learn Japanese. The idea is that by randomly showing Hiragana or Katakana together with the Romaji transcript, they start to stick to your memory after a while.
Kannasaver was inspired by a windows screensaver that does exactly the same, which is available from www.thejapanesepage.com for free.

Dependencies: Other than KDE 4.x, you need to have soft-scalable (truetype) fonts that contain the Japanese characters. Search for the Mika-Chan font set if anything else fails.

that depends on which fonts you have.
compile it with --enable-debug=all and start it from a konsole (kannasaver.kss --test) and you'll get a list of all the fonts you have that are usable, as well as which fonts are used (on top of the list).
you'll need to download the latest source for this (i uploaded it yesterday evening).

ok, the debug code is gone. now, if you configure it with --enable-debug=full and start it from a console, you get a list of all the fonts it has found usable on your system.

btw, could someone who is not using suse 9.1 and kde 3.3 try to compile it, and give me feedback?

I am running Slackware 10 w/ KDE 3.3 and it works just fine. However, I had to add a #include <time.h> to your source in order to achieve the compilation. Great work anyway :)

you absolutely have to configure the sources with --disable-debug, otherwise all you get is the message that it cannot find suitable fonts. leftovers from implementing that message. shall fix that ASAP and upload the modified source (most likely this evening).

I have an additional install source for yast2, it contains some useful stuff for suse 9.1.

go to yast2, "change installation source", add a FTP source. server is ftp.eregion.de and path on server is /pub/SuSE91

After that, you'll find an extra selection named "eregion extra stuff" in yast2 software selection. feel free to peruse it.
