Hmm a superkaramba crash wasn't in our plans... OK, let's try and get things 'fixed'. The systemtray: 2 systemtrays should no be running at the same time, otherwise it may create errors, so we take the systemtray from kicker before having it displayed in our widget. The size of the systemtray doesn't seem to have a way of being defined in superkaramba (call is there but does not work), not much we can do but to ask the superkaramba guys to fix this. The problem with the background messed up seems to be ours, will try to reproduce. To get yor theme back working remove '~/.superkaramba/paddock.rc' and '~/.qt/paddock*' (or just run the 'cleanwork' bash script provided that is in the theme sdk dir), and then run superkaramba from shell. Next time don't post the 'X badwindow thing' as it is not ours and not a real superkaramba issue, will just save allot of our precious space... :) - Jul 13 2008

Good to hear. But it made me think and go read the code a bit, till now found 5 bugs... nothing too serious but it is a little far from perfect... :/ If by any chance someone uses the theme in vertical mode and changes the background, a reload dock will have to be done too... This is the most disturbing... Keep reporting others you may find please :) Regards. - Jul 12 2008

It reserves the space only if we want to :) right-click the dock and choose 'Configure dock...' in the configuration window go to the 'hiding ' section and configure from there. It has the same options that kicker has: auto-hiding, allow windows to cover the dock, (...). The works... :) Best regards, Lechio. - Jul 12 2008

Hi there. First issue: the script should copy and update the icons by itself, some kind of error is going on there, are you running the theme from a non-ASCII dir? Second issue: noap, that's not how a background should look like. Looks like Superkaramba is not rotating the images... Run superkaramba from a terminal, load the theme and post the errors it outputs here please. The theme is only a couple of days old, not much testing, allot of bug squashing will need to be done... :) Best regards, Lechio. - Jul 12 2008

Hi there. Don't see why python reports that error as the variable in question is of typ int. Download this new version, should be 'fixed'. Best regards, Lechio - Jul 11 2008

Hi there, thank you for the feedback. I believe i've managed to identify this issue that may cause SuperKaramba to crash on some systems, it's related with the DCOP interface when the application that provides the menu is created. Will issue a fix, that hopefully will correct this problem, ASAP. Sorry about that... Best regards, Lechio. - May 07 2008

Don't know about FC but python2.5+superkaramba have no issues in my system. Try to use the non-pyKDE option as the error I believe comes from there. Here's how: Rename aRoK.skz to aRoK.zip, extract the file, open aRoK.py with a text editor. Near the the top where it says 'force_nopykde':False change to 'force_nopykde':True. Load the theme from that dir, should load ok now... - May 04 2008

Hi there. No ideia why superkaramba is crashing there, I tested this on my system with Debian, Mandrake, Kubuntu, Slack and BSD no problems with these. Don't have FC to test it. My guess is that it may be a problem related with yor python install, check if you have pyKDE installed, also check if dcopserver is running in yor KDE session. - May 04 2008

Karamba & Superkaramba by Lechio 40 comments

We give it some time there... :) we could be updating the status faster but that would take more CPU to do that. But... 5secs is allot of time... Do you have pyKDE installed? It's easy to check that, click on the top left corner of the applet, if it pops up a menu with submenus you have it, if it pops up a simple menu you don't have pyKDE and you'd be better installing it as it makes the applet allot more efficient and more responsive...
This is a thing that will be allot better handled when we change from the current method (DCOP) to D-BUS, available in amarok 2. - May 03 2008

Hi there, thank you for the comment. The 'pixely' work on album art is (for this time only) not my fault :) we ask amarok for the album cover, amarok replies with a miniature of that same cover (by default an image with 150px), we then resize that miniature the best we can. This can be fixed in the config dialog of amarok, change the size of miniatures to something like 300px and no more 'pixely' art :). The satisfaction comes from people using my work, not the kde-look rating. - May 02 2008

SSL support will be added to next release in a couple of days, along with some other bugs corrections and improvements. But if you need SSL right now just edit 'utils/getNumMail_POP.py' and where it says: 'm=poplib.POP3(server)' change to: 'm=poplib.POP_SSL(server)' .
SSL becomes available then :) - Apr 13 2008

Karamba & Superkaramba by Lechio 40 comments

Hi there. That bug is now identified, it seems that the photos module is importing the photos list from inside the skz file and not from the extracted dir. Rename aRoK.skz to aRoK.zip, extract the files to a dir and load the theme from there. Photoshow should now be available :) it's a temporary issue, and is being fixed, sorry. As for e-mail, what account type are you using? Best regards, Lechio. - Apr 12 2008

Karamba & Superkaramba by Lechio 40 comments

Hi, thank you for the feedback. That seems to be a problem with encoding, may happen if we set the photopath to a dir with non-ASCII chars. But it should reset when we do set the photopath. Tryed to reproduce the situation with no luck. It's now marked to fix, will try to correct it for next update. In the meantime you can try and edit " ~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/aRoK/0001a/modules/lst_amk.py" and add the complete paths to some photos there, save the file then reload the photoshow. '/mnt/hdb1/ts' is my photopath :) , again it should not try to load those. Best regards, Lechio. - Apr 12 2008

Hi there, thank you for the comment, you have pretty awsome work here too.
Yap, something similar for plasma is in the works :) right now the main focus is to catch bugs, all we can find, and get a few more plugins working (SMS, Phone calls, RSS reader, wether (...)). The plasmoid will be out after, gives also time for KDE 4 to be a bit more of common use. Best regards, Lechio. - Apr 12 2008

Hi there, sorry about the late reply.
- Remove the directory ~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/amaroKer;
- Download the new amaroKer version;
- Run superkaramba from shell and see if it outputs any error or the same problem occurs when resizing the applet.
- Post the shell output here so we can try and locate the problem.
Best regards, Lechio.

Bug... Testing the script with new versions of amaroK revealed the error. Getting the score info from amaroK using dcop ís now done with another call, instead of the call that i'm using to get the score ("dcop amarok player score") it now uses another ("dcop amarok player rating"). Will correct that as soon as possible. sorry about that. - Dec 22 2007

I don't like it either. Was just experiencing to see how it would fit on iceWM. Found that changing only the brightness and a bit on the contrast amount would make a better effect on it.

Congrats on this excelent new release of
Superkaramba, excelent work. Only have one question regarding this new release.
Did the function for text shadows got changed? It seems to draw shadows on text with the same colour of the text itself and not in black as it did before. For instance if a text is white, shadows also draw in white, making the text appear blured. - Jul 08 2005

So the title for the songs display OK on amarok's playlist? If that's so then i guess it would be a problem with the script. I have no way of testing this as i don't have any japanese songs. Test it out with another superkaramba script (soundmania for instance) to see if this really is a script issue). - Jun 18 2005

Hi there.
Wouldn't be that hard to add the controls
for XMMS. As for the cover part, a function would have to be written (or adapt an existing one) since as far as i know XMMS doesn't support covers for songs (without a pluggin that is).
If you want to use a karamba widget for the XMMS player, would suggest you use the excelent widget "Soundmania", as it also supports XMMS.
amaroKer will be for use with amarok player only, as it is easier to optimise it for one player only. - May 31 2005
