Firefox & KDialog Save As

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by isoteemu 9 comments

Here's a bug fix so you can save to directories w/ spaces... the kfmclient line should be:

kfmclient copy "$URL" "$KDIALOG"

Note the quotes around KDIALOG. - May 30 2005

KPager2 for Kicker

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by lucher 176 comments

Here are fixes for 2 errors I was getting:

ERROR 1: BUILD ERROR
======================================
I was getting an undefined struct QImage error.
To fix it, add #include to kpager.cpp, rather that than using a forward declartion of class QImage;

ERROR 2: RUNTIME ERROR
=====================================
When right-clicking on the pager, I would get the following, and the applet would crash:
appletproxy: symbol lookup error: /usr/kde/3.3/lib/libkpager2.so: undefined symbol: _ZN14KURIFilterData4initERK7QString

This was caused by not linking against KIO. To fix this I changed the Makefile.am in /src to include $(LIB_KDECORE) $(LIB_KIO), as follows:
libkpager2_la_LIBADD = $(LIB_KDECORE) $(LIB_KDEUI) $(LIB_KIO) - May 28 2005

(and you might want to try removing the extraneous call to XReparentWindow, if it's still in there) - May 28 2005

Hi OPQ. I am actually the author of that XEmbedCardApplet from Slicker :-)

I'm glad somebody else found the code!

Two notes:
1) To get proper keyboard focus, try setting the QXEmbed widget's protocol to XEMBED instead of XPLAIN... no gaurantees though.
2) There's actually a similar applet called swallow in the KDE CVS, but it's disabled in the build. It might also be worth checking out.

I wish I had seen this sooner. I've actually been away from Linux for about 2 years, and am just finally returning.

You might also be interested in Foo Pager. It does the same thing, just for a pager window. For now, you can get it from http://piperline.com. I'll probably throw it up on here sometime soon. - May 28 2005
