Since the project is no longer maintained, I started a clone of it and started porting it to KDE5 under https://github.com/caco3/kim5 - Sep 12 2018
I had to replace every $HOST to $HOSTNAME

after that, I can make a photo montage, but only in my console with the command
./kim_pelemele image1.jpg image2.jpg

Why doesnt it work by contexmenu? - Jul 13 2007

I installed it as root using the command "make".

How ever the access rights for "PDFktools.sh" where wrong, only root could use it:
> ll /usr/share/applications/PDFktools.sh
-rwxr-x--- 1 root root 9772 Sep 10 11:14 /usr/share/applications/PDFktools.sh*

I fixed it with
> chmod +rx /usr/share/applications/PDFktools.sh

Please make sure this gets fixed in the installer

If you provide the project i.e. on Github, many people would be willing to help you!

The German translation is horrible, I had to remove it to understand what the commands mean!
I am willing to provide proper translations. As said above, please provide a service for this, i.e. upload it to github or so, so we can help you!

Note, to remove the de translation, I changed it to xx:
sed -i -- 's/\[de\]/\[xx\]/g' *
I had to remove the files first, then re-add them to make Dolphin to use the new ones.
Also, the automatic installation in /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus did not make them to show up in dolphin, I also had to copy them to /home/gruinelli/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/ - Sep 10 2016

Would be nice if you could pack it for KDE 5.

When I installed It, I saw some errors, but did not investigate it nor test if it fully works:

./install.sh
mv: Aufruf von stat für »/usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/imageconverter.desktop“ nicht möglich: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
mkdir: das Verzeichnis »/usr/share/kim“ kann nicht angelegt werden: Die Datei existiert bereits
mkdir: das Verzeichnis »/usr/share/kim/slideshow/“ kann nicht angelegt werden: Die Datei existiert bereits
mkdir: das Verzeichnis »/usr/share/kim/gallery“ kann nicht angelegt werden: Die Datei existiert bereits
Kim has been installed. Good bye!

Also like documented before, the service menu paths have changed.
- Oct 31 2015
To use it in Dolphin under KDE Framework 5, install it as normal (install.sh) as root.
Then copy the files src/kim_*.desktop to /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/ or ~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/ (normal user) - Oct 30 2015

Thank you very much!
I was looking for something like that for a long time.

Thank you for that great tool!

On my KDE, the function to open a picture did not work, so I replaced the line
karamba.execute("kfmclient exec "+current_picture);
with
karamba.execute("kuickshow \""+current_picture+"\"");
in the file Photolets.py

I also found a mis spelling on line 244: uptade.

Hi guys

I had the same problem, every time KDE was restartet, I got the error message ("...A-Foto is already running and you are trying to start another A-Foto instance in an incompatible way,..."), so I did what open source software is made for, I modified the source.

Because I think I will never have the problem with two instances, I just commented out this error message.
What you have to do:
replace the lines 1209 till 1213 with the line "cleanStart = True".
This new line has to have 2 leading tabs (python cares about them!) - Jun 25 2008

First, thank you for this very useful application!

I have some wishes:
1. It would be good, when the search box is cleaned every time I open tasty menu.
At this time, I have to clean the box every time, before I can search for an application.
2. would be great to be able to set the start position of the window. When the start button is positioned on the right side of the kicker, the menu is cutted on the right wall of my desktop. See my screenshot on http://www.ruinelli.ch/downloads2/tasty_menu.png - Nov 01 2007
This is a great application!

But there are some things, which annoy me:
1. searching for applications is very slow. Is there a solution to speed it up? (maybe an index)
2. when I remove it from kicker and add again it, all my settings are lost. Would be great to take them over.

It would be nice, if the descriptions of the events not only are showed via tooltips.

And make a skz-File, its very easy!

And is there a sollution to show more than one comic at same time?

Thank you!
After loading the module ibm_acpi, the applet works.

I think, my Thinkpad has not all sensors you use in the applet, the temperatures for the two bottom items (powerline and ???) show me 0°C.

cat /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal shows me this:
temperatures: 58 51 0 0 0 0 0 0

Also the font is to small für reading the temperatures, you have to implement a option to change that!

It would also be good, if we could open the option-menü with clicking on the icons.

And a tooltip would also be nice. - Apr 09 2006
Thank you, the hint with "./configure --prefix=/usr" did the work.

But It doesn't work correctly, I thinks its because I have another Thinkpad as you.
The applet loads with the Message "Error reading thermal information from proc FS". - Apr 08 2006
I compiled and installed it without errors, but can't load it.
I right-clicked into the panel and selected "add applet to panel", but in the showed list, I can't find the applet.

I don't know where your problems are.
On my KDE 3.5.2 I could (like in older KDE's) copy and paste a file and konqueror then asks for another filename.
I usually do it with CTRL-C and CTRL-V!

Have also a look at my Backup-Tool, which could do the same, but with some extra features:

Hello mattepiu
Have a look to the new version!

Now it should create allowed filenames on english KDE's and the files are stored without leading paths.

Because I could'nt test it on an english KDE, could you do it for me? - Aug 02 2005
Hmm, I realy dont't know why it doesn't work :(

My Script starts good, but then the zip-command has a problem.
Can you test, if the zip-command is the problem?
try to start:
zip -0 -v -r ./archiv.zip ./backup_als_zip.sh
(again in /tmp).

If you again get an error, then it's not a failur of my program :|

the warning about the missing program beep should not be a problem. - May 20 2005
can you copy the shell-script (backup_als_zip.sh) into another directory (for example /tmp ) ?

and then open a console in this directory and execute
./backup_als_zip.sh 0 h ./ ./backup_als_zip.sh


and send me the Output of the script?
----------------

One thing, I think, that could be the problem:
The Kontexmenu starts the Terminal konsole, which has to be installed. - May 18 2005
hm...
is there any text in the console?
(The script has to start the console, so thats ok.
But then, it should start the script...)
I assume, you replaced both files?
backup_als_zip.desktop AND backup_als_zip.sh (from the folder EN)?

the script uses only the apps zip and beep.
Have you them installed?

Or it could be that your servicemenus-folder is on another place?
Please check (and modify if necessary).
On my kde, it is on ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/backup_als_zip.sh
(where ~/ is a link to your home)


thank you for your patience! - May 17 2005
The new version (0.2) now works on engish kde's.
I too translated the script to english - May 17 2005
Its true, the code is (not yet) in english, but all other stuff is in english.
I will translate the code in a view days (I hope).
For your information:
In the code is nothing you need to understand, its only a small log :)

Can you explain your problem?
Where do you get the error?
And on which KDE-version?
Because I have only a german KDE (Version 3.4) I can't test it under english conditions. - May 11 2005
