Are you going to support the new KDE ? The source will not compile

Great work. RC2 finally works for me (RC1 crashed KDE).

Some suggestions:
- the progress indicator should indicate whether the client is running or stopped
- it would be nice if you could set the priority of the client
- a left click on the progress indicator should display the work unit

This happens when ./configure puts a wrong link into Makefile

Look inside Makefile and delete versions from the names of commands.

Ex:

....34/admin/missing --run aclocal-1.7
to
....34/admin/missing --run aclocal

You need to simply remove the autom4te directory when doing ./configure Always works with me when I get that error...

Hello,
I've updated the links, thanks.


----
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Request" at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/C4che.pm line 69, line 112.

It looks like the problem is with autom4te. Please try rm -rf autom4ate.cache in the build directory.

This is a very nice and well done application although I have a small complain. Every time I log to kde, I have to manually change the status to running (it's always stopped). Can you add a configuration option to start running automatically?

Just compiled it under kde 3.1.5
When I start the applet only an empty space appears on the kicker and there's nothing to configure.
Suggestions?

Hi,
I think what you're describing happens if, for some reason, the applet can't be loaded by the panel. Double check to see whether the file kfolding_panelapplet.so exists in your $KDEDIR/lib directory. If it is there, run ldd kfolding_panelapplet.so and check to see whether there are any lines that say 'not found'. Hope it helps.

Unmerged, reemerged (I use Gentoo) with the same self-done ebuild and all worked... strange...
Now it's all OK.

Hi,
I haven't run a Redhat system in ages, but I think the problem is you're missing some packages. Check to see whether xfree86-devel is installed. You'll also need arts-devel and kdelibs-devel at least.
