Why did you remove "configure"?

I installed cmake but it doesn't find my KDE include directory and some other directories. With "configure" I just had to do:

./configure && make && make install

This was so easy to install. Can you please offer a "configure" script in the next version again.

cmake is a pain in the ass. I don't know where all the directories reside which are required to compile the app. As "configure" worked without problems, I think they are installed somewhere but I can't find them. Please offer a configure script with the next version. - Oct 30 2006

I love your app but could you please move the context menu entries "Export..." und "Checkout from repository..." into the "Actions" submenu.

If every app adds its own entries to the main context menu again, there will be a mess like there was before the "Actions" submenu was invented.

We have multiuser systems here with many users not even knowing what subversion is. These entries are really confusing for them as they only expect important menu items in the main context menu.

Does your app record the sound, too? - Sep 16 2006

could you please add these two features in one of the future versions:

1. I'm used to type Ctrl-D if I want to exit my current konsole. Could you please make yakuake minimize itself if the last shell is exited. So I can press Ctrl-D and it vanishes from my screen like konsole would if I exit the shell.

2. Could you please add session support like in Konsole? I have defined about 30 ssh sessions within konsole which I can reach by holding the "new-tab-button" pressed. This is very comfortable. It woule be great if I could also use these sessions within yakuake.

Thanks in advance,

your ebuild doesn't set the prefix path right. Therefore kuake doesn't show up in KDE menus and installs itself into /bin. Moreover a directory /share gets created in the root directory.

You should add:

src_compile() {
myconf="${myconf} --prefix=/usr"

econf ${myconf} || die "econf failed!"
emake || die "emake failed!"

I've just tested your app and I like it very much. However there are a few things I would like to see for the next versions:

1. If you press Ctrl-D or type 'exit' only the shell closes and not kuake itself. As soon as the shell is closed you can't start a new one. Please make kuake start a new shell as soon as the last shell is exited - I often type Ctrl-D accidently :-)
By the way - if you close the shell and then resize kuake to a different terminal size, the programm crashes.

2. Please add a taskbar to start multiple shells like konsole has. Perhaps you can load konsole as a kparts module - then I could even use my profiles from it.

That's all I think :-)

> I think Unix-permissions are not a problem if you use samba, nfs or ftp, since ACLs should work fine with them?!

Yes, you're right - ACLs should work but they are a pain in the ass :)

> Unfortunately, I couldn't find ANY docs on how to use webdav and its versioning features. Can you point me to a document or howto?

Unfortunately there are no real Howtos for WebDav as it is a relatively new protocol. The only real documentation is RFC 2518.

But there a many good articles on You can also find DAV client implementations and links to other resources on this site. You might be able to use the KDE DAV ioslave, too. It would be great if you could implement DAV support as you also have the ability to assign attributes to resources (=files) and search for them. DAV could do a lot of the dirty work your program has to do now.

> Then again, we have thousands images that regularly exceed 60 megabytes. Versioning-instead-of-overwriting-old-versions means we'd probably have even more data to cope with...

Well, in a photo agency you might have images of this size. Our raw images are only about 3-6 MB. Besides I think that disk space is no longer a problem these days.

I didn't test your app yet but this sounds like a very good idea. This could be a killer app not only for photography agencies but also for every webshob owner. We own a webshop and have to manage thousands of product pictures in different sizes and formats.

I think using a normal directory as an archive is a bad idea. As many people work on pictures everybody has to mount the archive via NFS for central administration. This is not always possible and unix permissions do not allow a very fine granularity of access. Another problem is that you do not really have version control with a plain filesystem directory.

Here is my personal wishlist for such a program:

- WebDAV support (instead of using a directory as archive) for network wide access, version control and access permissions.
- ability to assign and search for properties (i.e. description, date, vendor, product, color,..) of a picture.
- template support to predefine often used picture formats, sizes, output paths,... for easier conversion.

I unmasked and emerged your new version today and I'm trying to figure out how to update my system.

Klicking on "Updates" only shows "Refreshed 2005 03 25" but there is nothing to select. As I only do an update once a month there should be lots of packages to update.

I generally update my Gentoo installation with "emerge -uD system && emerge -uD world". How would I do this in your app? Can I do an upgrade of system packages before updating userland packages with your app?

your app would be great but why do you use MySQL?
MySQL is overkill for such a small db and I think many people (like me) don't want to have a full dbms installed on their desktop pc.

You should use SQLite or similar file-databases for such a program.

that was pretty fast.
I'll have a look at this beta.

Please add the ability to create and save/load backup sets which can be used for regular backups.

The "Create-Archive-Assistant" is quite good but it's annoying to recreate the backup sets each time I want to do my system backups.

Wow, that was fast. Thanks for the editable tty field.

HabIB - Jul 14 2004

keep up the good work, KDE is in desperate need of such a tool.

But could you please change the open device dropdown field into a text input field?
I had to hack cutecommdlg.ui because my modem driver uses a non standard tty device (/dev/ttySL0).

I love your app and your Gentoo support, too. The ebuilds work great. Why don't you commit them to the official portage tree?
