So, I made sure that all of the prerequisites are installed on my SuSE 11.0 machine, then unpacked and ran the startup script:

$~/Documents/Downloads/Packages/kde-hal-device-manager-0.3$
./setup.py install
running install
running build
running checkpyqt
Your Qt version is too old. Version 3.3.0 or higher is required, found 3.3.8b.

How can 3.3.8b be too old if 3.3.0 is sufficient? How do I get past this?

I have both pykde and pyqt installed in Fedora 7, but I get this when I try to run kde hal device manager:
[user@localhost .kde-hal-device-manager-0.3]$ ./kde-hal-device-manager

File "./kde-hal-device-manager", line 5, in <module>

PyKDE doesn't seem to support KDE3.5. anyone here who has experience with PyKDE?

PyKDE is not supporting kde3.5 in this way, that all changes from the kde3.5 api are in pykde. Anyways, it's compilable with kde3.5 without any problems.

Hum?
The project is alive and at good health.
So, where did you get this rumour from, that pykde is not alive?

I have succesfully installed PyKDE on KDE 3.5 using Gentoo's portage.

But you don't need PyKDE for this software, only PyQt is needed.
It was already working fine before I installed PyKDE :D

no, you need pykde. see the homepage. also the news says that it is a kde application. so, it obvoisly also need kde bindings for python. of course earlier versions didn't need pykde but the most recent kde-hal-manager needs. but that's great that i can run pykde against KDE3.5. thx for the news

I have PyQt and pykde installed.
If I decompress it and run ./kde-hal-device-manager I get the following error:

chl@chl /mnt/D/Downloads/kde-hal-device-manager-0.3 $ ./kde-hal-device-manager
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./kde-hal-device-manager", line 5, in ?
from DeviceManager import *
File "/mnt/D/Downloads/kde-hal-device-manager-0.3/DeviceManager.py", line 1, in ?
from DeviceManagerWidgetUI import DeviceManagerWidgetUI
ImportError: No module named DeviceManagerWidgetUI

What did I wrong?

Is this ubuntu only?

Sorry for the noise, didn't look in the ubuntu archives. I found it at http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/pykdeextensions/
(unfortunately the python requirements are >= 2.4 and debian/testing is still on 2.3.5-3).

Maybe you could contact authors of HAL to have it included in HAL tarball?

Great! It "works for me". On Slackware 10.2. The only problem seems to be the separator between the tree view and the content view; its not working as it should. But maybe this is more about PyQt or something. Anyway, very good for a 0.1 release! Cant wait to see some more tuning.

Thanks.
