Thanx. it's people like u that keeps us going :-) - May 23 2007
for now a reload is needed. and try to see if /home/you/.face.icon is the image u changed . if not just replace face.icon with the image u want and reload kbfx with the config. if it dose not there. just
use rename ur jpeg as .face.icon and place it on ur home folder.

We have added complexity preserving the simplicity, This is the start..maybe the first step, as we mature u will see that this is the MOST simple...hard to explain now..but as time progress u will see not with words but by examples. :-)

- Jan 19 2007
It's so, nice that u were able to resolve the problems :-) - Jan 18 2007
We need more info to resolve ur problem.
1.) is it 32bit or 64 bit ?
2.) What were the compile time options u issued to cmake
3.) KDE version used
4.) kde prefix
5.) any other information u think it would be use full ,

thank you !

Well just use the latest versions of KBFX - at this exact moment that is
and tell us the results (sorry but no binaries at the moment for Edgy - you should compile them manually) - Nov 18 2006 :-(..I'm very sorry about the accident you had..I know how it feels when your
HDD crashes like that..

yes..we can build some rpms..and srpms.
I will try to talk with PhobosK tonight
he is out package manager....

ways to contact
me: siraj at
Phobosk phobosk at

thanks for the note...

hmm..nice comment , I agree with most of your ideas. and I will try to fix some of those errors in the redesign process.

I'm really happy that we got a long review after a long time..we needed taht..and we give the promiss of fixing.
I have written a color composing function which I will try to include to the older code base so that u can change the color of the menu for a given theme. but the dynamic size change needs us to restructure the code
of kbfx..and this is what we are doing in cvs....

thanks.m8. - Jun 14 2006
if it crashed then I think you can help
us by sending the trace and telling us
what went wrong? so that we can fix.
please let us know what happned so that we can fixit..

tell us about
1.) the distribution
2.) when it crashed.
3.) how to recreate the problem
4.) any compilation errors you had..

- Jun 14 2006
hmm? not very clear? I did add some fixes for ur previous comment..
can u give me more details? we have no one to test kbfx on SUSE and depend on people like u for now.
thanks for the feed back..and
if u find more problems let us know.
' - Jun 08 2006
u need the cvs snapshot..rc1 dose not work.!( rc1 dose not have any option to disable? and I added that on ur request).
bye. - May 30 2006
I don't have SUSE.but I have added a fix.
which i think should solve ur problem.
can u please checkont kbfx from cvs ?
and tell me if my fix has solved this problem. - May 27 2006
yeah..we are working on this..
and with will fix this.
and KBFX team is working hard to get the translations done.
. - May 27 2006
can u give more details? like what is the
error you are getting

i have added some KDE kiosk code ..this could also be one reason..but i'm not sure. and can u send the content of the Yast .desktop file.
u can post in the kbfx forum or just drop an email to siraj at .

lets try to fix this..if this is a bug!
bye. - May 26 2006
thankx..I will give these to ur package
- Apr 30 2006
is My reply for athleston... - Apr 27 2006
yes..I can see ur disapointment..
we will not have that problem. any more..

our new package manager is really. Really good.
And he did NOT pack 0.4.9 . now from release on. PhobosK will make releases. And I can promises u that he will
pack things to run out of the box..

well. there is no reason why u should feel sad..bcos making a change is just a matter
of sending me an email?... I to date I have
replied for 786 emails regarding KBFX.
and i didn’t turn a single request down.
as I'm the only developer at the moment working on kbfx, some times it's hard to make changes over night....

if u make a proper feature request to me.. And not make public Fuss over it.
there is no reason I will not implement it!.

KBFX so far ( if u note) is made of Users needs(if u compare each of the comments on the forum. and of kbfx forum.
I and ur team have tried our level best to add each of those features as time permits.( remember I or any one in KBFX team don't get paid for KBFX from no one!).

and your comments are no exception to me!

I remember that u are using mandi cooker.
and u had problems adding entries. good thing is that PhobosK has Mandi BOX
and we were working on this computer
to fix the bug.
.(it's that Mandi distro has hacked KDE and changed how it works)

now. this discriminating comment made by our comes at a time when we are actually working on the
Feature request that YOU have made. and I was
just shocked ? . .Nookie well his temper went over the Moon as u can see!

Bye.. - Apr 27 2006
u can use ur Slack packages..then no need to downgrade anything.and u actually don't down grade? bcos u can have automake 1.6.and automake 1.9 and have no touble.
I halped many Slackers irc..and then didn't have trouble..they have automake 1.6/and 1.9.

good luck. - Apr 22 2006
so..nice to see u back in action. - Apr 19 2006
two ways
1.) save any image as

2.) login as root go to kDE settings
and enable user image on that tab before the last one..

the first one is easy I think.
u can save any image format..
of any size ..kbfx will make it fit inside that box..make sure u save it as
example if I am user siraj.
cp mango.png /home/siraj/.face.icon
should do the trick!

- Apr 18 2006
check howto
section..I have added how to fix this problem
this works on gentoo,slack,and suse
bye - Apr 16 2006
we had to release kbfx 0.4.9 in the middle of development bcos of my bad health. but when i'm well again I will add support. till then u can create new section using k-menuedit and include the settings u like on that . but use a differeant name for the settings group.

thanaks.bye - Apr 16 2006 we go again..grow up kid!. - Apr 16 2006
and KDE Glow - Apr 16 2006

Oh..friend I never felt offended..I just informed you of the new development going
on..for each release we come up with some thing new based on what the user wants. and we never thing our design is perfect and we never had. and there is no such thing as a perfect design..few year back ...wvery one said "WOW" when they saw the kmenu..and the current kbfx kind sucks..hehe. and that's why we are writting a new one from scratch..we gatherd what the users want to 2 months before even starting work..and we still have our harts as well as doors open for new ideas..
bye! - Jul 24 2006
ibc/icb .. I like your KDE4 brain storms..
if you do have a nice idea for the MENU..
why not show us what u really want?
if it is cool..then there is no reason.why I or any one else wouldn't want to implement it.....KBFX is about experiments. to make the BEST menu for KDE..I devote my time and money for that..
and my effort is to make the menu you want..and so far kbfx is based on ideas that users have given..and it will remain that way..good ideas u come up with will be on kbfx!!..that's promiss! - Jul 23 2006

this is the new scrollbar. can't beat this can you? - Jul 23 2006
