Description:

This is probably the most powerful pager on linux - yes it is a kicker applet! Check out the screenshot and help file for explanations.

///------#################-----
--------------------PATIENCE!-------------------
------#################-----///

Kicker of KDE 3.4 seems to have problems loading this applet. If you really want to test the applet, either
o kill kicker after starting KDE, wait until kicker is restarted and add kpager2, or
o start appletproxy /opt/kde3/share/apps/kicker/applets/kpager2.desktop

We are working on this.
KDE3.4 users! - Stay tuned.
KDE3.3 users! - Have fun! :)

PLEASE! -----------------------
For all of you experiencing this problem, give me you Versions of:
KDE, Qt, gcc, distribution.
thanks

Installation:
=====================
untar kpager2-0.6.0.tar.bz2 and goto kpager2
make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure
make
su
make install
in kicker: right click menu -> Add -> Applet -> KPager2

Compilation Problems:
=====================
There might be some issues with the system clock. Since my computer believes a day has 19 hours, the file modification times are wrong and must be set by yourself before compiling. Do:
o find . -print -exec touch {} ;
Remove the autom4te.cache directory in case you don't use automake 1.7.

Packages:
=====================
o SuSE RPM's (thanks to Loki):

you can also remove the border from it and put it on the bottom of the screen and have the kicker end bfore it reaches it so it looks like they are one entity.
