Obviously, your kde has been built upon an old qt, which doesn't provide a recent event() method. - Mar 19 2012
Ok, done... - Jun 25 2011
ok, if it works, you could reinstall interceptor. - Jun 16 2011
your entries on rsyslog.conf seem correct. I got the same. Nevertheless it doesn't work...
try those entries but without

;RSYSLOG_TraditionalFileFormat - Jun 16 2011
mmmh you shouldn't do a

ls > /var/run/interceptor/info

but rather

ls | logger -p daemon.info

then you can retrieve the ls results with

cat /var/run/interceptor/info - Jun 16 2011

Except the entries for interceptor, rsyslog.conf seems empty. Have you listed the full file or just the end ?
Maybe kubuntu doesn't use rsyslog, but rather syslog or another logging daemon. Check if syslog.conf exists and if it contains something - Jun 16 2011
and syslog.conf ? - Jun 16 2011
Of course you have rebooted your computer.
Let's see if you can have an acces to your fifos

ls -l /var/run/interceptor/* - Jun 16 2011
before making the test, you completely remove interc and even restart kde - Jun 15 2011
mmmh, the installation seems correct. I assume that the interceptor stuff is installed into the right directories. I seldom use opensuse. I can't tell.

Ok, let's test if the fifos work. In a shell, type the command:

cat /var/run/interceptor/notice

and in another

logger "xxxxx"

In the first shell, you should be able to seee the xxxxx. Of course without interceptor. - Jun 15 2011

Could you tell me what happens when you make a 'make install' ? - Jun 15 2011
Ok, I have just released interceptor 1.2.7. It should correctly display the log lines. Tell me if it works ... - Jun 14 2011
No, install the 1.2.5. It should work. - Jun 14 2011
The current version has a problem. Get back the 1.2.5.

The better is sometime the enemy of the good. - Jun 14 2011
Btw, a couple of days ago, I released the version 1.2.5, that includes the modified install script. - Feb 25 2011
Ok, I have updated the mkintfifos utility.
Could you test it pls ?

http://skylendar.kde.org/interceptor/mkintfifos - Feb 18 2011
Hey, if you are still curious, I have released an upgrade of my project. - Feb 14 2011
Yes, of course. Why dow you ask for that ? Interc 1.1.1 has been released on my site:
http://skylendar.kde.org/interceptor

I even tested the download link, and it works. - Feb 08 2011
Ok, new release made. I hope everything fine this time.

One can be blind and see... - Feb 06 2011
Aaahhhhhhh, shame, shame, shame on me :-(((

It was so obvious that I wasn't able to notice it.

Will ship a newer version asap, with another bug fixed.

Thx again for the help... - Feb 06 2011
Could you be more explicit? I don't have Fedora. I can't test my script on it. - Feb 06 2011
Ok, I've updated the script according to your hint. Works with Mandriva too.

1.0 coming soon, maybe tomorrow or on Friday. - Jan 26 2011
The script strives to add instructions to rc.local for creating the needed fifos if they aren't present.

Maybe on Fedora rc.local has another name or is situated elsewhere. Could you verify pls ? - Jan 23 2011
Mandriv has another behavior, of course.

Tried another solution with $UID and $EUID

try http://skylendar.kde.org/interceptor/mkintfifos - Jan 21 2011
Mmmh, on Mandriv, the script correctly tells whether I'm root or not.

Check if either $USER or $USERNAME exists, and what is its value. - Jan 20 2011
I already told you: I need the feedback from another kubuntu user.

It works fine on Mandriva. As to the other distros, no return from the users, neither negative nor positive. So... - Jan 20 2011
The problem is that you are the only user who provides me with substantial return.

I can't compare with other kubuntu users or other distros, I don't know if the problem is specific to you or to kubuntu.

Do you know another kubuntu user who would be ready to test my widget ?

Ah and I forgot: I have made a new release, rc2, on my site. In addition to the latest install script, I include a better DataEngine and better transparency. - Jan 19 2011

Ok, no need to reboot again and again.

The proble seems to be due to the so-called ibus.

The standard Qt environment uses dbus, not ibus which seems to be a newer derivative whose I've never heard of before...

However kubuntu may have been built upon ibus. Please, send a comment to any kubuntu help mailing list in order to know what to do in that case. - Jan 19 2011
So, if you execute

plasma-windowed interceptor

as a normal user, you still get:

PlasmaApp::loadCommandLineOptionsForNewInstance()
plasma-windowed(5699)/kdecore (services) KServiceFactory::findServiceByDesktopPath: "" not found
plasma-windowed(5699)/libplasma Plasma::FrameSvg::resizeFrame: Invalid size QSizeF(0, 0)
Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon

? - Jan 18 2011
So, do you see the widget or not ?

Btw, do you run the plasmoid as root, i.e. with sudo -s or something like that ?

If yes, try to execute

plasma-windowed interceptor

as a normal user. - Jan 18 2011
Ok, first of all, let's see if mkintfifos worked:

Check if /var/run/interceptor exists and if it contains fifos like warning, info, alert etc...

Then check either /etc/rc.d/rc.local or /etc/init.d/rc.local exist. One of them should contain at least the line "# interceptor fifo files"

Also check if either /etc/syslog.conf or /etc/rsyslog.conf exist, and if one of them contains the line "# Entries for interceptor"

If everything ok, you should be able to run the command:

plasma-windowed interceptor

As to plasmoid or widget, I don't care about the name. Its pupose is my only concern. - Jan 17 2011
Oops, I sent an update yesterday, but it didn't work. :-(
Ok, mkintfifos uploaded on the site. Try it. - Jan 17 2011
try http://skylendar.kde.org/interceptor/mkintfifos - Jan 16 2011

If you already have downloaded 1.2.5, pls reload it. An important bug, forgotten in the previous uplaod, has been fixed. - Jun 24 2011
Ah sorry, I mistook plaspool for interceptor, another plasmoid I'm working on. They have a similar look, so I edited the wrong project yesterday. - May 22 2011
Forget the beta1. I released the rc1 yesterday. - Apr 29 2011
If you are still interested in testing plaspool,
I have just released the version 1.0 beta1, see:

http://skylendar.kde.org/plaspool/plaspool-1.0beta1.tar.bz2 - Apr 24 2011
Thx for testing my app and reporting the bugs.

Ok, I'm working on a further version anyway, that will include new operations on the spooling queue, such as hold, resume, etc... Notice that the cups devel doc is rather scarce about that: I had to delve into the cups sources in order to know what to do...

As to the icons: I got the one I use from the Oxygen monochrome theme. It doesn't seem to exist a better svg icon for the printer. Who want to design one ? - Apr 22 2011
I wanted to avoid icons when they are not needed on the panel. As to a couple of icons for the inactive/active state isn't a bad idea.
That being said, I don't know how to reduce the space between 2 slots on the panel.

I have tested OpenSUSE 11.4 a few days ago, and found no printing management in systemsetup. So I wondered... - Apr 21 2011
What do you mean by iconized icon ? I intend to display an icon if and only if an event occurs, i.e. a pending or processes job, in order to avoid to clutter the taskbar with useless icons.

So far, I haven't seen any printing management on the std KDE4 distro. Such a feature was available on 3.x, but not 4. That's why I made plaspool. But I may be wrong. This feature is maybe present on KDE 4.6 or even planned for 4.7. If so, could you confirm it ? - Apr 21 2011
