We need maintainers and translators! Our program was included to Ubuntu release 8.10, that's why translations is very important. If you want to become a translator write about it to sstikhonov(a)gmail.com. To translate the program you have to know how to use Qt Linguist. Thank you!

The previous version invoked kdesu on startup, getting a root password.

The current one does NOT! A run as sudo hangs up.

The console shows:
Qt: Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed

Program otherwise comes up fine. Obviously will need root privileges to do other than view.

I see this error in first time. Tell me your distro, version of KDE and python-qt4. I try to fix that.

this is the error I get when I try to execute with kdesu

kdesu mm
kdesu (kdelibs): WARNING: No X authentication info set for display :0.0
kdesu (kdelibs): WARNING: No X authentication info set for display :0.0
kdesu (kdelibs): WARNING: No X authentication info set for display :0.0

It fails to start.

If I switch to a root konsole and try to run it I get

mm
Traceback (most recent call last):

What kind of Window Manager do you use and what version of python-qt4?

Report

KDE v3.5.8

Python-qt4 v4.0.1-5

No luck starting without root. kdesu pops up and asks for a password. After password entry a splash window opens for about 1/2 second and closes.

Thats the latest in Debian stable (etch).

I don't feel the need to update.

Thanks any way. Keep up the good work! :)

Hello

Looks like we have similar ideas about improving configuration on Linux. I've have been working on providing a similar interface to configure /etc/fstab (albeit as an example to Config::Model).
http://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=155650

The main difference is that you choose to implement dedicated classes to store fstab data (FsTabRecord), and all data validation looks mixed with the presentation code (Qt part). I fear that maintenance and evolution will not be easy. Though I must admit that your GUI looks nicer than the one I have. :o)

On my side, I've completely separated the presentation (Tk GUI) from the validation part. Furthermore the characteristics of the data that can be found in fstab in stored in a data structure (what I call a configuration model) and not mixed with validation code http://search.cpan.org/src/DDUMONT/Config-Model-0.619/examples/fstab/Fstab.pl. The Tk GUI is generated from the configuration model so maintenance and evolution is easier. This approach also offers the possibility to generate other kind of interface (Curses, Qt, Web, Webmin). Or to provide other configuration models to get other configuration tools (like Xorg http://search.cpan.org/dist/Config-Model-Xorg/
https://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=155650&ssid=78913)

Since we have similar goals, I hope we will find ways to share ideas or work together despite the perl/python language difference.

If you want more information, the homepage of my project is http://config-model.wiki.sourceforge.net/

All the best

I'd like to work together, but I think we won't come to good common decision in: choosing interface, what language to use, how to unite out programs and etc. Sorry, but I don't agree with some things in your programs...

Excellent job my friend. I really like MountManager and totally agree with the idea behind it.

Just wanted to let you know. I'll keep an eye on your work. But please one request: don't write documentation or anything else in your native language. First in English...

Have you considered switching over to the KDE4 libs instead of Qt4?

Ok. Functional practically was already written and now I am going to write documentation.

>Have you considered switching over to the KDE4 libs instead of Qt4?
I want, that MountManager work in Gnome too and I don't see pluses of it.
