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.

I've seen your work and i think is very nice, but i've got a little problem.

I've compiled and installed it (./configure, make, make install) Everything was succesfull. The problem is: I don't know how can i activate kmetabar.

My OS is Kubuntu Hoary 5.04 with KDE 3.4.2

PD:Sorry for my bad english.

Just right click on an empty space in sidebar tab area, and you'll get a pop up menu to add sidebar pluins...

I think it's to much to have one button to show all actions (right corner) and another to hide/show whole category (the white one in left corner). It's too much clutter in my opinion. Better solution is to hide/show category when clicked on category name (like amaroK does). It would be more visually pleasant.

Just my .02

I compiled and installed Kmetabar without any problems, but I don´t see it in my Konqueror? Where is it?

I use SUSE 9.3 with KDE 3.4.2.

Thanks a lot

Before compile, you should run configure in this way:
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

report if it works

Shame on me!
1 minute later and I solved it myself. Right-click on the sidebar and add it.

Now that I managed to install Kmetabar, I have something to add, that was said before about spanish : the french accents do not work well with kmetabar. It would be great if it supported UTF-8 :)

Ok, Umlaute are working now!

But whats about the musik-player? If I click on a .mp3-File and afterwards on the play-Button nothing happens. Which player do I miss for this feature?

Have you got mp3 support enabled in your machine? Ex: Can you play mp3 files from either Juk or Amarok players?

Report

sure sure.. I here music with amarok. Juk isn't used on my machine, but amarok. But I don't use arts. I use alsa instead with gstreamer plugin (in amarok)

* It could be nice to use tar.gz or tar.bz2 instead of rar for your package...

* It could also be nice to have the configure script executable so we don't have to chmod +x configure

My two pence ;)

I've got some compile problems on my 64-bit fedora. It looks for the files in /usr/lib/ instead of /usr/lib64.
What can I do.

Thx
