Yes, I don't profess to be a great designer. If you unzip the .skz that is downloaded you will see the bg img, and on/off states of the 5 buttons, and the 4 headings(Current Location, Details, etc). These are the files that would need to be altered. Shouldn't be too hard for someone who is good at designing. - Aug 23 2008
That's interesting, I can't say I've ever had more than 1 ups package, but I know it's worked for fedex packages(having 4 at a time). Could you do me a favor and run superkaramba from the Konsole, simply by typing superkaramba and hitting enter. Then starting Package Tracker, then right click and choose update. Then if you could email the output from the Konsole, I am positive I could fix it. My email is aaronjg at gmail dot com. Thanks in advance. - Sep 13 2007

Try this new version and if it still doesn't work send me the three files listed above in the "Getting Help" section. - Nov 06 2007
Out of curiousity, what did you have to do to make the icons show up? I ask b/c I downloaded it and ran it and it worked fine. Also if you run superkaramba from the Konsole, then open multi_search you should be able to see output. try searching for something and let me know what error it gives you in the Konsole. - Oct 25 2007
The problem is that your config file is pointing to the wrong directory.

You should open the file /home/Insert_Your_User_Name_Here/.superkaramba/multi_search/engines.dat

Each line in the file is one of your search engines. Make sure that they are pointing to the right path, aka /home/Your_User_Name/.superkaramba/multi_search/search_icons/google.png

IF they are not then edit/save the file. - May 25 2007
First see if the search_icons folder was extracted. They should be in the following directory

Here there should be a folder named search_icons. If that is not present you will need to extract it from the .skz theme file by unzipping that folder. Let me know what you find.

You can use my email address to contact me, aaronjg at gmail dot com - May 07 2007
I just tested this, and there is a solution without changing any code.

1) Add the first engine($) then go to the manage tab and change the name to say Leo-English, or whatever name you would like to help you distinguish that this is the english version.

2) Now go back and add the 2nd one and change it's display name, as well as the 3rd.

3) Finally use the website to convert the french and german favicons to pngs. Then you can easily set the icon for the french and english through the manage search engines tab by clicking on the existing icon, and then navigating to the saved png.

Let me know if you have any questions in this process. - Apr 16 2007
I'll have to look into why after adding one you cannot add the others, I didn't think there was validation for that, but I may be wrong. You are right, you will not be able to obtain the different favicons as is. Currently it looks at the default location:, and if it can't find it, then it will look through the source code for the favicon, which is what you would want to happen first in order to obtain different favicons. I have some other bugs/enhancements to do, that didn't happen this past weekend, but hopefully within the next 2 weeks. Thanks for your comments as well. - Apr 16 2007
I'll add the ability to add your own browsers. And I'll again look into the issue of using non ascii characters. - Mar 29 2007
Email me the files engines.dat and config.dat to and I can hopefully tell you what's wrong. Those files are located in /home/Your_User_Name/.superkaramba/multi_search/ - Mar 09 2007
The package you would need to get is python-wxgtk2.6. You can grab this through apt-get.
apt-get install python-wxgtk2.6
You will need to use sudo to do the above.

Hrmm, I tried the same url and it worked. It sounds like you are using an older version. Are you using 0.1.0? This version was just released today. And do you have wxPython installed, or are you trying to add the engine the old way? If this is the case I strongly reccomend downloading the newer version and installing wxPython. If you do not want to install wxPython, load superkaramba via the command line, then try to add the engine and copy/paste the ouput it gives. But again I would reccomend using the new version with wxPython. - Mar 08 2007
Fixed this in version 0.0.7, I had them backwards, selecting firefox gave you konqueror and selecting konqueror gave you firefox. - Mar 05 2007
I have a few things for you to try. First off open up superkaramba via the terminal. Then try to change the default browser. Look at the terminal and copy/paste any errors you might receive, so I can look at them. If there are no errors then try deleting the config file, which would be under /home/your_user_name/.superkaramba/search.rc, then try it again. If that still doesn't work try uninstalling it and redownloading it. Firefox is the default browser wehn you install multi_search, so you shouldn't need to change anything. Let me know how that goes. - Mar 05 2007
What exactly do you mean by clear? More like glass? Or any color but with like 75% transparency? Thanks. - Feb 26 2007
Thanks for the comments. Yes I had wanted it to be an easier install, and the zipfile module is exactly what I needed to do that, thanks for the help. - Feb 26 2007

I know if you don't have the theme in a locked position then you will have to double-click on the controls. Try making sure it's position is locked via the right click menu. - Sep 26 2007

Thanks, I didn't like how Dolphin had an extract to menu for tar.gz, but not tar, which is what most of my archives are. Changed the konqueror directory to dolphin and it works splendid. - Aug 30 2007

I enjoy this widget, and have just updated to version 2. One thing you might want to add is the ability to format the date. In the config it could be something like:
Date Format: _______________
using y, m, and d
valid examples yy-mm-dd, mm-dd-yy, etc.
I'm used to reading the date either as yy-mm-dd or mm-dd-yy, dd-mm-yy looks odd to me. Great work! - Jun 15 2007

Or you can just use the command line unzip program

unzip -x file_name.skz - May 06 2007
Right Click on the .skz and choose Open With... then choose Ark. Ark will ask what kind of file this is and choose Zip Archive from the dropdown. Then you can extract it. - May 06 2007
