Copy file or directory path

Dolphin Service Menus by bbeck1976 4 comments

I found another one of these I found wasn't working, so I put the two together and came up with this desktop file...

If you prefer it top level inside of inside the 'Actions' menu try
X-KDE-Priority=TopLevel

Does the extra ',inode/directory-locked,inode/directory-hidden' do anything?
Where are these 'icons'? (Note: just kept which icons were in there)

~/.kde/share/kde4/services/112873-CopyPath.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Service
Icon=editcopy
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin,inode/directory,inode/directory-locked,inode/directory-hidden
MimeType=application/octet-stream;inode/directory
Actions=CopyPath
X-KDE-Priority=TopLevel

[Desktop Action CopyPath]
Name=Copy Path
Icon=klipper
Exec=dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.kde.klipper /klipper org.kde.klipper.klipper.setClipboardContents string:"%u"

"Don't remember the exact time of day but some time in the afternoon."
If your camera had the date/time set correctly when you took the picture, you can look at the properties of the picture as see what date/time it has. (typically something like, right click, then click on properties, etc...) - Apr 19 2011
ShortLog

Plasma 4 Extensions by munglaub 12 comments

I've tried installing 'ShortLog' via
'cashew->Add Widgets...->Get New Widgets->Download Now Widgets...->...' and via
'cashew->Add Widgets...->Get New Widgets->Install Widget from Local File...->...' and via
'plasmapkg -i ./123379-shortlog.plasmoid'
...
I don't see how to start it. I go to
'Ccashew->Add Widgets ...',
and don't see 'ShortLog' anywhere.
I scrolled threw threw the list, and didn't see it there.
Tried typing 'Short' or 'Log' into the 'Enter Search Term' box, and I don't see it there either.
I even tried seeing if installed as a 'View Layout', not there either.

How can I start 'ShortLog', etc...?

p.s. I'm using KDE 4.6.1 on KUbuntu 10.10.

MountManager

System Software by LinuxDooM 41 comments

Definitely BEWARE

Backup up /etc/fstab BEFORE even running this this program, it overwrites /etc/fstab with a completely new version (all commented out lines gone, etc...) upon exiting regardless of rather you changed any settings or not, and it does so without warning, or even telling you it's doing it!

The version I tried was 0.2.6-0ubuntu4(lucid)
probably from lucid/universe (us.archive.ubuntu.com)
at least that what Synaptic says

I purged this from my computer because of this bug, I don't want to be tempted to look at this program, because doing so would change my fstab!

kbluetooth

System Software by afiestas 58 comments

I uninstalled all software mentioned on
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bluetooth
and then reinstalled them, and that seamed to what fixed kbluetooth for me.
Although I have a feeling that it may have been just the purging and reinstall of Blueman, along with messing with Blueman some, that may have fixed kbluetooth, and
that it may have been Blueman that broke kbluetooth in the first place, but I don't know for sure.

this was one of the messages I got when kbluetooth wasn't working:
kbluetooth(4412)/kdecore (KLibrary) kde4Factory: The library "/usr/lib/kde4/solid_bluez.so" does not offer a qt_plugin_instance function.

I've uninstalled what I had compiled and installed the one from in Ubuntu's Adept-Manager, and it no longer has the crashing taskbar problem, and it goes to the same virtual desktop when switching desktops with the mouse. Maybe the one that I compiled was messed up, or didn't compile right, or something. - Dec 09 2008

When switching KDE desktops with the mouse wheel it will go to the same virtual desktop row like it should, however it goes to the first column of that virtual desktop row instead of going to the same column.
-
I still think there should be an option to change it to switch virtual desktops with the mouse wheel. (see other post)
-
Just thinking about it. You could think of virtual desktop columns as x, virtual desktop rows as y, and think of [non-virtual or KDE] desktops as z.

[copied form my other post]
It would be a nice option to add if we could set it to change, either desktops, or virtual desktops(up/down, left/right, prev/next, loop/no_loop(u/d l/r p/n)) with the mouse wheel, or tilt wheel over the pager.
-
Also a middle click for move the active window to a desktop/viewport would be nice.

Note: There are virtual* horizontal desktops, virtual* vertical desktops, and desktops/desktops rows, when using KDE and Compiz-Fusion. The pager has an option for 1,2,3, or auto rows to place the KDE desktops in. Each KDE desktop has virtual horizontal and virtual vertical desktops with in them. The virtual desktops are ordered left to right then top to bottom within a desktop which are also arranged left to right then top to bottom. AKA (trying to say it again) virtual left to right then top to bottom within a desktop then the desktops are left to right in a row and then top to bottom; same as the virtual desktops within a desktop except that the desktops doesn't have to arranged in a rectangle like the x*y virtual desktops within a desktop.

**sometimes called viewports.

example:

3 virtual horizontal, 3 virtual vertical, 8 desktops in 3 rows
--------------------------------------
|1__2__3_ |10_11_12 |19_20_21|
|4__5__6_ |13_14_15 |22_23_24|
|7__8__9_ |16_17_18 |25_26_27|
--------------------------------------
|28_29_30 |37_38_39 |46_47_48|
|31_32_33 |40_41_42 |49_50_51|
|34_35_36 |43_44_45 |52_53_54|
--------------------------------------
|55_56_57 |64_65_66|
|58_59_60 |67_68_69|
|61_62_63 |70_71_72|
------------------------

and this is how this Compiz-Pager numbers them.

<Idea: Maybe Compiz-Fusion could have an option to change this; like for cultures who don't read left to right, etc...>

This crashes 1/2 the time desktops are switched. (yes, I said desktops not virtual desktops) When it crashes[the taskbar goes away]* on switching desktops it crashes practically every time. This app doesn't deal with switching to vertical virtual desktops, everything goes to the 1st row of the desktop. At least it does display the vertical virtual desktops as being there and I can click on them(it just goes to the 1st row).
-
And the KDE one doesn't understand vertical virtual desktops nor multiple desktops on Compiz.
-
*The command: "dcop kicker default restart" gets it back; usually temporarily, until next desktop change.

I thought I was using Compiz-Kicker 3.5.10, but I wasn't I was using the Compiz-Kicker 3.5.4. The 3.5.10 ./configure, make, sudo make install worked without errors. I uninstalled the 3.5.4 version, and reinstalled the 3.5.10 version and I don't have a Compiz-Kicker option in Add Applet to Panel. There's only Desktop Preview & Pager. Any ideas?

The 3.5.4 one crashes 1/2 the time desktops are switched. And the KDE one doesn't understand vertical virtual desktops/multiple desktops on Compiz

The current version of Compiz-Kicker changes desktops (no virtual) with the mouse wheel or clicking on a desktop/virtual desktop.
-
Compiz-Fusion had the more than one desktop disabled for some Compiz-Fusion versions. The option is enabled the the 'unstable'* .7.9 version I downloaded and and a <7.4 version I tried, but not the 7.4, or 7.6 versions.

*It doesn't seam unstable so far. Only the unstable plugins add-ins that don't have custom icons seam unstable. - Nov 15 2008

Mouse wheel switches desktop instead of virtual desktop.

The mouse wheel by default should switch virtual desktops instead of desktops, and after it goes to the last virtual desktop it should go to the first virtual desktop of the next desktop.(or back to the first desktop if it was at the last one)

This also could be configured so that mouse wheel switches desktop and left and right scroll switches virtual desktop, (or even to disable the mouse's effect on the pager) - Nov 14 2008

I get stuck at this point when trying to run

every thing else results in ok.
I noticed that the same ones say ok, if there isn't a _debug at the end.
Is there something(s) that I need to install?
