No luck downloading lb 4. Some kind of redirection error.
I've tried to dl lb for mandriva 586, but bit seems to be the same problem with other distros, as well as the source. - May 17 2010
I've been trying ver. 0.2 today, and it's just excellent! Very easy to handle, and extremely powerful.
The ability to be run from the command line is especially useful, but the UI is great as well.
Suddenly I understand why everybody's been talking about the power of rsync for all these years :)
Kudos to the author for writing this badly needed utility! - Dec 30 2008
I found the program easy to work with, as far as manual backups are concerned. Very flexible, and very fast.
But I haven't found out how to start it from the command line, so I could run it as a cron job. It doesn't seem to take any parameters. Or is it just me getting blind? :) - Dec 10 2008

Hi!

I just can't get the hang of this (great-looking!)
program. I'm sure that it can do everything I need, but
there are a couple of things that really confuse me.

First, I can't get it to insert the actual time from the
video that's playing. It always inserts 00:00.

Second, when I've finally got som lines together, I can't
save them. The save dialog always jumps back to "Save
subtitle", and reverts to the default .ass setting (I want
to use .srt). I can't even save as .ass, btw :)

Is there some kind of manual that could get me started? I
tried the Help button, of course, but the needed .xml file
is missing.

Alright :-)
In that case, I guess GPL is better than proprietary :-) - Aug 05 2007
Some useful tips! Nothing to copyright, though, so it shouldn't be licensed at all. - Aug 04 2007

Maybe it would be even better to make it a submenu to "Actions", but it sure is a useful tool, especially with the root option. - Aug 05 2007

Give it up, will you? There's nothing wrong with your arguments as such; it's just that they have nothing whatsover to do with KDE and Qt.
Spend a few moments reading instead - heck, you might even find it interesting :-)
http://www.kde.org/whatiskde/qt.php
http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/KDE

And skip this condescending "since you're not a coder" stuff. I've been using KDE for ten years; since v. 1.1. I may not be able to program for it, but I think I've got a pretty fair grip of what it is :-) - Jul 13 2007
I hope you don't have a problem with your blood pressure. If so, I'm sorry if I'm setting it off.
But I'll take it step by step, so you'll have have time to calm down ;-)

Qt is not just a "widgetset", it's the base on which KDE is built. No Qt = no KDE. Google a little yourself, and you'll see this.

> luckyly, NOT the only widgetset KDE
As I said. Qt is the *basis* of KDE - like it or not. (Like Gtk is the basis for Gnome, btw).

Probably, since it's in no way a Qt app. I think I miss your point there?

> application aware of all what a
> desktop environment may offer?
Again - take a closer look at the relation between Qt and KDE.

I've never critizised the app *in any way*; on the contrary, a lot of people say it excellent, and if I needed it, I wouldn't hesitate to use it myself. It surely looks very competent.

I'll certainly give you a point there. It was wrong of me to compare my contributions with the countless hours the programmers put in. But I *did* get mad when you hinted that I don't do anything. I'm a concerned user, and users are also important in a way :-)

And this is exactly my point - if people post things in the right place to start with, they won't be so hard to find - and you won't have to get so frustrated :-) - Jul 12 2007

But it's not, so let's forget about that part, shall we?

About the flaming - feel free, but it would be nice if you kept to the point.
My point was that it's confusing - you might as well rename kde-apps to "Apps" and let it contain Windows applications as well - since you can run Internet Explorer under Wine...

The only thing about your flaming that I *do* take offence to, is your slur about supporting KDE - I'm no coder, but I'm supporting KDE in a lot of other ways, including hard cash to developers. - Jul 12 2007
that PeaZip is still on kde-apps. I've nothing against Gtk apps as such - I often use GIMP and streamtuner - but this is a desktop tool, and since it doesn't support proper d'n'd, and uses that half-assed gtk file dialogue, it's *really* out of place.
In my view, kde-apps should be about kde and/or qt, not gkt or java.
Amarok, for example, may function just as good under gnome, if you have the right kde libraries, but that doesn't make it a gnome app. It's just confusing :-( - Jul 11 2007

Very nice utility!
The only thing I miss is being able to use it from the right-click menu. (Or is it already there, and I just don't see it? :-) ) - Jul 12 2007

Is there really a point in writing a "KDE enabled" accessory in C / Gtk?
I'm not dead against Gtk, I use a few Gtk applications myself (like Streamtuner and Grip), but I'm not sure I would like it as a part of the system framework.
Note: I haven't tried prelaunch, so maybe I'm totally off... - Sep 28 2005

Agree. The Amazon lookup seems slick, but in the long run I find it mostly irritating since it does badly on non-American artists.
A combination of Amazon and Google would be great, but if I had to choose, I would prefer Google. - Jun 06 2005
