Thanks - Nov 21 2005
Great job... it strikes a chord, and I'm still not sure how. Thanks for that.

I'd really enjoy a higher res version, if you've still got the original! - Nov 15 2005

I dig it. Very innovative, sparxxxie.

My only concern would be that the feature is disabled by default configuration, in case of the user having lesser-efficient drivers and/or software-based acceleration.

And I'm not directing this as you, sparxxxie - Merely stating that until even lower-level hardware can actually pull off simple GL animations like this in movie-like grace that so many of us expect, it's going to unnerve the senses. - Jul 25 2005

Great app, man, it's done the job for me properly everytime for a couple versions now. Well, curiosity has gotten the best of me....

I notice while running gmake the flag "-mtune=pentiumpro" running on each command... Now, I'm familiar with Linux as a user, so humor me here - can I change this directly or indirectly to optimize the build for my Athlon XP 2400?

Thanks for your hard work on this app!!! - Jul 13 2005

I have yet to understand how anyone can put porn (soft or hard) together with the Linux moniker.

I really like kbfx, but have one minor issue. Is it just me, or does kbfx only display kmenu in the middle of the screen? I'd like it to appear beside the kbfx button. - Jun 19 2005

I happened to have my favorite install on KDE in an alternative location. As such, I need to set the '--prefix=...' option with many configure runs. KConfigure (AWESOME program, by the way!!!) let's me "Configure with Arguments..." and provides a blank input box for me to type in any options. Well, I got tired enough of typing '--path=$KDEDIR' time after time, so I modified the source code to pre-fill the text box for me, so all I have to do is type in any thing else and hit enter.

Change line 454 of kconfigure.cpp:

KLineEditDlg argdlg( i18n("Configure with Arguments"), "--prefix=$KDEDIR", this); - May 14 2005

Awesome - I'm looking forward to the first release! - Dec 26 2004
I like it - a lot.

That said, I'd like to propose an 'advanced', user-activated option to show verbose output of file changes made along the way. What better way to show newbies how to make custom changes on their own through the commandline, but also give experienced users what they might need to know for debugging. - Dec 25 2004

I love this prog, but that won't keep me from nit-picking. I'm using Mandrake 10.1 . Please see this image:
http://home.comcast.net/~mcorven/images/snapshot1.png

My ksmoothdock is placed on the bottom of the screen. Please note:

1) My desktop background is using a random slideshow. Notice how ksmookdock isn't sensing this and updating the screen accordingly.
2) Why is the program name all funky looking?

Great stuff, keep it up!!!

Thanks! - Dec 23 2004

I've rigged a partially funtional (and partially proper) extension to this project which will shred the contents of subdirectories. The current install does includes this option in the KDE servicemenu, but it's not working. Here's the update...

Edit the bottom portion of shred_files.desktop as so:

[Desktop Action shred-folder-contents]
Name=Shred Folder & All Contents
Icon=stop
Exec=shredfiles %f

Now create a new file, /usr/bin/shredfiles, and don't forget to make it executable!

:::::CODE:::::

BASEDIR=$1
cd $BASEDIR
find -depth -type d > ~/out
cut --bytes=3- ~/out > ~/out
perl -p -e 's/\n/ /' < ~/out > ~/out
perl -p -e 's/ / /' < ~/out > ~/out
arrayZ=( `more ~/out` )
#element_count=${#arrayZ[@]}
#echo '$element_count = '$element_count
for i in "${arrayZ[@]}"
do
cd $BASEDIR/$i
for file in `ls -a`
do
shred -vfuxz $file
done
done
cd $BASEDIR
for file in `ls -a`
do
shred -vfuxz $file
done
rm -fr *
cd ..
rmdir $BASEDIR
shred -vfuxz ~/out

:::::CODE:::::

ISSUES: There are obvious problems with this script. It does not properly handle: links, directories having space(s) in name, and probably lots of stuff I'm not thinking of. Furthermore, it forcibly removes the leftovers that it missed (which means those files are still very much recoverable!).

..anyways, I gave up Windows cold-turkey last month. Today, I'm a happier man. ;) - Nov 06 2004
