I ran an almost full backup of Kubuntu 12.10, which after running OK, suddenly cancelled. The Warning Section: Backup cancelled. Above this was a hugh list of similar to '/dev/block/1:11' is not readable. Skipping
I copied this list to a file - took up 28 pages!
Have no clue what caused this. Have been using this for over a year with no problems - normally works perfectly. The file types listed were /dev, /etc, /opt, /proc (the largest), all were "is not readable", ending with Backup cancelled. Do I have a system problem, or maybe I was trying to back up too many files (all backing up to a 2 Tera bite drive with more than 1 TB free. Would appreciate your comments, as I am reluctant to use this program until I hear your response. Thanks

Thanks for your reply!!
bumpy@bumpyputer:~/Downloads$ plasmapkg -i 116413-onlinephotoeffect.plasmoid

Installation of /home/bumpy/Downloads/116413-onlinephotoeffect.plasmoid failed.

Also tried
- Open 'konsole'
- Then type plasmapkg -i
116413-onlinephotoeffect.plasmoid
nothing happened...

also tried:
just click it to install (not
not sure if this is possible in Kubuntu)
This opens with Ark listing all folders & files
but I don't know what to do next!!

I got that solved, but since then have updated to kubuntu 12.10 & your wonderful screensaver is working fine.. except for one thing: what do I have to change to keep KOceanSaver running for a specified time length?
Also would like to know the file settings location.
Like every other fan, any hopes of more fish etc?
Big Thanks again for your magnificent screensaver!! - Nov 27 2012
At the conclusion of final compilation, you suggested to run kbuildsycoca4
here are the final Terminal lines:
-- Up-to-date: /usr/local/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/koceansaver.desktop
-- Up-to-date: /usr/local/share/man/man1/koceansaver.kss.1
bumpy@bumpyputer:~/Downloads/KOceanSaver$ kbuildsycoca4
kbuildsycoca4 running...

nothing happens after that, & koceansaver.desktop is not listed in the OpenGL screensavers.
How can I fix that?

Followed your INSTALL NOTES
tar -jxf yawp*
cd yawp*
./install.sh
install progressed successfully until this line:
-- Found Gettext: built in libc
CMake Error at po/CMakeLists.txt:6 (MESSAGE):
Please install the msgfmt binary


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
CMake failed. Your system probably does not meets all requirements.
Please advise - Jun 14 2012
