Tried it as a different user and seemed to work fine (not extensively tested).

Is there any config files other than the one in ~/.kde4/share/config/ ? Can't see one. Any other way for me to test?

My recoll config settings look fine

thanks, - Mar 23 2011
recoll -t seems to work fine (as does gui) (did not count results)

I'm using default config for krunner-recoll

strange I just typed "recoll" in Krunner to find & execute it and I got 3 recoll results BUT "recoll -t recoll" gives me 4 (not all the same). The runner gave me executables (3 - 2 .desktop, 1 .sh ) while the "-t" gave me 2 text files and 2 executables.

fyi - in the gui there is a "hide duplicates" in query config.

- Mar 23 2011
Recoll is installed (1.5.5) and runs fine but when accesses using Krunner I seem to only get results to documents of type .pdf

The file drop2imageshack-plasmoid.notifyrc was placed under ~/.kde even though
using openSuse the file should be ~/.kde4

It would appear the file location is hardcoded when it should use $(kde4-config
--localprefix) to determine where to place it - Mar 15 2011

needed to add the line:
which is probably too encompassing

should also consider the use case where the plasmid alread exists and a -r is required before installing newer version

also not all distro's use /.kde, some use ~/.kde4 this is a good was to tell:

I installed it and set it up but it's not triggering and executing as expected

condition = memory used higher than 3500mb (3963mb installed) during 5 seconds

action = terminate the program Opera (there a massive memory leak in the weekly build)

It's running in the system tray

Opera was using 89% ram per htop (3527mb) and yet it wasn't terminated

running rpmbuiild --rebuild on recoll-1.15.2-0.src.rpm results in an error

" /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.5/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -luuid

I have no ~/.recoll/fields

I did delete all in that folder except recoll.conf and reindexed (recollindex -z) and I get the same - nothing in the filename column.

I am running 1.5.1


as always, thanks
- Feb 15 2011
so then you are defaulting title to filename and not displaying filename in the cases where the document does not have an internal filename? And since I don't add title to doc's I create I should just delete the filename columns

ps - I did run recollindez -z, as suggested (just posted recoll -z)

pss - would you format the size colum (add comma's)

thsnks, - Feb 15 2011
sorry but for clarification tile=filename so the filename column is not necessary, correct? Or is filename supposed to equal url? Either way not sure what the purpose of filename column is now

thanks, - Feb 15 2011

1) file still name not showing in table view after running 'recoll -z' , sent email

2) did not notice columns could be added

3) clearing 'paragraph format' resolved indenting

thanks, - Feb 15 2011
Just compiled and

1) file name column in table view is empty

2) adding size column might be useful

3) in regular view the reason for the indentationing (to me) isn't obvious - seems based on year quarters but having each document in the indented group indented one more than the previous is excessive

the album artist tag is filled with the word "artist" not the album's artist

thanks, - Jan 21 2011
In my opinion Audex is much more configurable and full featured a ripper than K3b. If Audex was not available than I would find a different standalone ripper.

Examples include addition of album art into saved dir, embedding album art into tags, ability to format track numbers (01 instead of 1, etc..... Also not all distros provide K3b with codecs needed to rip mp3's.

The same question can be asked regarding any app that duplicates the functionality of another - you don't want choice? - Jan 06 2011

thanks, I up'ed to 445, deleted and re-added Springfield and all seems well

regards, - Oct 20 2010
sorry but I don't understand trunk (not git, nor svn) so you need to explain like you did

yawp calls google and google finds the city BUT the plasmoid displays N/A with dewpoint of 32,767 and doing refresh says "connecting", stops and still no info is shown

noticed #include <Plasma/Weather/WeatherUtils> were removed and everything compiled fine - Oct 19 2010
once again yawp could not contact the server

I assume that the code you wish for me to test is the code on this page (there's no indication it's revision 442) - Oct 19 2010
there's 4 or so places with weatherutils that must be removed

here's the log file

in systemtray settings -> display -> extray items I enable the systemtray version of yaWP

in systemtray settings -> entries I set yaWP to hidden

to see yaWP I click the "show hidden icons" icon in the systemtray. This pops up a window of hidden sustemtray icons. I then right click the yaWP icon to change settings or hover the icon to display the weather.

But if I change location using "show city" the location does not change if yaWP is set up this way, though it does if it is visible in the systemtray.

And you it is reproducible

thanks, - Jul 30 2010
The yaWP widget available through the systemtray settings will not change
location (show city) if accessed while hidden. They icon (not the popup) shows
activity if the city is changed but the displayed popup does not show the newly
selected city.

If the waWP is not hidden it changes city correctly

Tried filing a bug and got this reply
"sounds like a bug in yawp, which is a third-party add-on. please report to the
author of yawp. if it turns out to actually be an upstream (e.g. plasma) bug,
then re-open this report and include a comment about what the resolution with
the yawp developer was. thanks :)" - Jul 29 2010

I think this fixed it, performance seems pretty much equal - thanks

small bug - in the duplicates tab I can't drag to adjust the size of the fields

too bad there's light usage it's a great app, better then the alternatives - Jun 07 2010
The example test was given to the exact sets of directories - no adjustment were made based on the search results.

There were no differences in the directories so there were no missing folders or files found but since one directory was the backup the timestamps of 1188 of the files were newer.

Originally k4 had "find empty directories" checked but I reran the test with it unchecked with the same result.

The problem is definitely in the "finding miss/newer" segment of the processing.

If it matters both version of the app had "case sensitive" checked"

Thanks for the response

Have you considered submitting the app for inclusion in KDE or KDE extras? - Jun 07 2010
of course all search options were identical - Jun 06 2010
Did a timing/performance comparison of this and the earlier version (komparator) and this version is problematic.

comparing my music directory with it's backup (13,000 files, 1,000 folders)

K4 starts missing/appending at 30 seconds, after 120s it's at 4%, after 240s it's at 6% - then I kill it

K starts missing/appending @ 15 seconds, at 30s it's at 50% and finished at @ 60s

Suggestion - if console is problematic, wouldn't it be better to remove it until it's ready so that it causes no harm? Not everyone reads the "known issues".

I'm a little confused about "Backup the entire source directory (by name) vrs "Backup the contents of the source directory". Reading the manual helped but the titles need work, maybe add "with parent directory name included". Should "by name" be the default even"?

"The pattern editor does not produce the right pattern for "specific files/folders" when "Backup the entire source directory (by name)" is used as task type." If I just use reg expressions as described in the manual will that work correctly with "by name"?

thanks, - Apr 13 2010
since cron is used for scheduling then if the machine is not on at the designated backup time the backup will not take place when powered on - correct?

In such a case it would be better to run from kalarm (with "cancel if late" unchecked) using LB in console mode? - Apr 13 2010

I don't think what I'd like to see (which is the generated broswer to host trafic) is possible because the Host traffic is thru the proxy (Privoxy) not to the browser.

This is only a problem when multiple apps (and browsers) are generating traffic simultaneously and all use the proxy (which does happen). But I will be able to see which site generates the traffic. - Mar 30 2010
