Your "# ls -la libkate*" shows that you have present in your library. What you need to do is this:

# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s

That's all. Now, you should be able to compile the source properly.

I appreciate the approach but to make it acceptable on large scale, few things must be taken care of. Following are the difficulties I realized:

1. On Yahoo or MSN or Gchat, if someone adds me, i don't receive any confirmation message. This is unacceptable.

2. I need to give a FULL email address in the white-list if I have to bypass the person receive the question. Please allow something like this:
I should be able to add in white-list just by typing *xample12*.

3. Please add an option so that all the current users in the messenger list will automatically be added in white-list. It would be better if there is also an option for different protocols or groups. e.g. Add all Yahoo users in white-list but not all MSN users.

I think, the aforementioned three things are incorporates, this plugin is really going to be very useful.

at first, thank you for this good addition to the Kmail.

I have a request and I think it would improve usability of this tool.

Is is possible to rename the attachment when saving to the hard-disk so that we can track the attachment back to the email from which it is extracted?! It may be good idea to add some info-tag before or after the name of the attachment while saving!!

Thank you.

AT first, thank you very much for this so useful app.

However, I think it would be a great improvement to it if you can add a feature to choose another OS to boot into (while rebooting). What I mean is: if I have a dual boot system, say Linux and Windows, both, and I am rebooting from Linux, I should be able to choose which OS I want to boot into, Linux or Windows.

There is an app called "GRUB NextBoot" [ ] to deal with the OS stuff, but I think it would be much better if this feature gets incorporated in Kshutdown also.

hey, is it possible to extend this script for other websites, especially Kde-looks.

If it can extract newest/highly-rated/most-downloaded wallpapers automatically and set it as background on daily basis, it would be great.

The wiki site what this script uses doesn't seem to have high-resolution pics and it doesnt look good if set as wallpaper.

hi, I have a small request about this app and I think it can improve usability of it.

1. In Output--->Video Codec---->MPEG+DVD option--->Framerate, even if I choose 29.97 fps, it shows 30 fps once I start encoding a video. Could you please fix it because this is the framerate widely adopted in DVD format videos.

2. In the Output--->Audio Codec section, the encoding is not possible in AC3 format, what is again a well-known format for DVDs. Could u please add the AC3 encoding option also.

At first, thanks for the good app.

Well, coming to the point, if I encode the video with 16:9 aspect ratio and check the compatibility using this app, it throws some warning. However, it says that the video is fully compatible if 4:3 aspect ratio is used in encoding. Could you please tell based on your experience if 16:9 will work or not on a DVD player?! I have no experience in this regard and also no DVD player and so I can't test it myself.

Thanks for adding the feature of automatic close and ignoring comment lines starting with ## in .ram files. It is working well.

However, how is the behavior when a .ram file contains two non-commented rstp links??

Also, is it possible to add multiple downloads in a single window....not serially, rather, simultaneously?? I mean, a feature to add 2+ media-links and start these links download simultaneously. I am asking because we can use this app efficiently in simultaneous with kshutdown app (which offers a feature to shutdown the computer when some particular program this case, your app). If I use multiple download in multiple windows, it is hard to detect which one will end last and hence can't use the aforementioned feature.

Thanks a lot. please keep up the good work.
- May 10 2007
thanks. I am looking forward to have the improvements.

Well, below is the content of the .ram file I fed to this app. The file is created (0 size) but no stream downloaded.

The .ram file:

## The following two video clips play for RealOne Player and later:
## .RAM_V3.0_START
## .RAM_V3.0_END
## The following two clips play for RealPlayer G2 through RealPlayer 8:
## The following two clips play for RealPlayer 5 and earlier:

I have changed the name of the link for obvious reasons. However, the structure is same.

good luck!! - Apr 17 2007

Another thing, it couldn't be launched properly when I opened the .ram files with the keeplistening binary. What I need to do is open it in terminal and then paste the rstp://xxx url into it. There is a lot of message on the terminal. It would be nice if u minimize the output (or add some option to do so).

I am using FC6.

Thanks anyway. It solved a big problem of using long command line with mplayer whenever I had to download the nasty porns...always streaming using rstp protocol...phew!!

hello, I am using this app after modifying my filter options (slap label, dont archive)....and it is working great.

I have a request...when i restart my box, I need to restart this email checker manually....isnt there any way u can add some feature so that when i restart my kde, it starts automatically??

thanks!! - Apr 05 2007
It is possible because I have seen some firefox-extensions which notifies all of your unread mails, whether it is in INBOX or not.

Next, why do I want it...hmm...think of the filters what Gmail provide...and also, the new pop3 feature what can be used to download mails from another email accounts which support pop3. For example, In my case, I download yahoo mails to gmail using pop3. After downloading, a label "Yahoo-Inbox" is automatically slapped on these mails, and archived, so that when I check my gmail account, I just come to know how many Yahoo mails I have. This feature becomes much more useful when you have more than just yahoo account.

This kind of filtering can be done based on many other criteria which indeed makes the email management much easier. If filtering is to be used efficiently, you should provide this feature of checking mails more than just in INBOX. Better would be, fetch the labels automatically from gmail for the user's account and then provide option about which ones to be added in notification.

Thanks and good luck!

I am hoping to see this feature implemented soon! :-) - Mar 29 2007
hey, thanks for the app. this seems to be nice. However, it doesnt check if the mail is archived i.e. it works only for those mails which are in INBOX. Please improve it so than it can check even if new email is not in INBOX.

well, of course your app is better than mplayer in this regard (what u just explained in your last comment). But, what I mentioned about, is: when you are downloading some video file from somewhere remote, the unfinished "xyz.part" can be played using mplayer. Here two programs are involved: 1st, what downloads the video and 2nd is the mplayer which plays the unfinished file.

The integrated approach, like yours, is better, no doubt. I think if you pay attention to this INTEGRATION of some download program with mplayer, it may be a more efficient way achieve the ultimate objective you have :-)

good luck anyway!

but lagging much in functionality e.g. .rmvb format can be played by mplayer if codecs are installed properly from mplayer's host website. Please support all the formats mplayer support. Multimedia Converter ( supports these, however lacking in some aspects (e.g. resolution control). If your app supports all the formats, undoubtedly it will become a great app.

Also, as it is mentioned in previous posts, if all you developers collaborate, it is more likely to have an outstanding output...but anyway, it depends on feasibility also.

"While developing LIRC applications you might find a emulator[] for lircd useful. With this emulator you don't need a remote control to generate LIRC events. That way you can develop LIRC applications even if you don't have a LIRC compatible device yourself."

I tried to find other places which host the lircemu but I couldn't unfortunately.

Anyway, there seems to be one another of similar type. Please have a look at

I tried to use my remote with smplayer but it didnt (however, working well with mplayer). well, if you are using mplayer as engine to the smplayer, why dont you just take use of the already implemented functionality of LIRC in mplayer and slap it into your GUI version ?!!

well, as far as looking good or bad is concerned, it absolutely depends on "how" it is implemented. Even if the user-list etc are added in the theme, and it is added in well manner, it doesn't affect the look at all.

Regarding your second suggestion that I should do it myself if I need...of course, that is always possible, but not always an efficient way. You may be already knowing few things what I don't know (e.g. this theme stuff) and in that case it is much efficient for u to implement things known to u. On the other hands, there may be few things what I know but u don't know, and in those cases it is much better if I do these things rather than suggesting that u do urself if u need it. If ppl follow this kind of understanding, overall output would be much more!

well, the things what I posted in my last message was just a suggestion :-). Implementing or not implementing depends entirely upon whether u like that or not. But, in general, if I develop something which will be shared to others, I do ask for their suggestions about the product :-)!! - Jan 05 2007
