Description:

First of all I shoul thank to Florian Roth (Original author of Metabar). This is a modified version of Metabar and the reason is: I'm not happy with the changes came to metabar in version 0.8, so I decided stick to version 0.7. and I've modified it a bit to go with my taste. AND I like to share it with you too.. :-)

---

Now I like to maintain this as a feedback for the original Metabar; that would be part of KDE 3.5.

In the mean time; As I'm not an expert KDE developer, I always appreaciate your help.

*** PLEASE READ:
THIS is the first beta for KMetabar 0.2, with some experimantal features. New features are not perfect and I appreciate your feedback to make them better.
In the mean time some of the issues (Arts related and compile issues) not fixed yet. Please bare with me.

Many thanks to Carl (sleepkreep@gmail.com) and
caglar@uludag.org.tr for their contribution.

Right click on a empty area on sidebar tabs, you get a pop-up to add sidebar pluins. If you don't get the kmetabar there, select reset to defaults option. It should give metabar in plugins list.

Sorry mate, I indeed got the option to add the metabar, and selected it. But it doesn't show. I ran konqueror fom command line and got the following error:

konqueror: WARNING: libname:0x82f6920 doesn't specify a library!

I amnot sure it helps. Thanks.

I got the same problem (konqueror crashes when I click on Metabar).

I'm running a Kanotix-Debian Box with KDE 3.4.2.

The output on the konsole is the following:

kdecore (KAction): WARNING: KActionCollection::KActionCollection( QObject *parent, const char *name, KInstance *instance )
KCrash: Application 'konqueror' crashing...

So far I was using Lipstik style and now I've used Plastik2 (which I grabed from kde svn some times back).
Windeco: current one is plastic and I used Mallory 1.0 and Porcelain before. Further I'm using some stuff from kde 3.5 as well.

I am still having a few problems compiling this version, and I think it may be something to do with arts.

When I run "./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` --without-arts" it works fine, and tells me to run make, but then when I do so I get the following:

I *still* can't get this to work. Compiles & installs with no errors, but then nothing on right-click on the sidebar.

Any help?

In the right click pop-up menu you'll get an option like "Reset to default..."
(it will give you a warning, ignore it).
This will refresh the pop-up menu to display all available plugins)

If it doesn't do; recompile with collowing option.

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
