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.

How do I change the sidebar so that it uses KMetabar?

Just right click on a empty area of the sidebar tabs and in the pop-up menu you'll get all the available sidebars. When you select KMetabar to add, and when you open it KDE will automatically make it default sidebar. Hope this answer your question.

You have to edit the file kmetabar-0.1/kmetabar/src/Makefile.

And then :
* find the line KDE_INCLUDE= and change it to
KDE_INCLUDE="/usr/include"
* find the line
INCLUDES=$(all_includes) ${KDE_INCLUDES}/arts
and change it to :
INCLUDES=$(all_includes) -I${KDE_INCLUDES}/arts

Run again "make", it should work (better)

Could you make sure that you followed the steps:

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure [--prefix=/usr]
make
make install

Further make sure you have arts-devel installed.

Try to woth the option

./configure --with-extra-includes=/usr/include/arts

By the way what is the distribution you are using...?

I have the same error (using Mandriva le2005). I had similar issues with earlier versions of metabar.

With --with-extra-includes=/usr/include/arts doesn't work.
