Hi you guys!
I don't know if somebody already mentioned this, but I think it would be an improvement to have a service menu entry in the context menu under "actions" to execute a file with root permissions. Something like this: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.ph … f8e9199b48

We`ll include the start as root menu entry with the next build...

Since the last build we have a policy to not include any patches that require special actions (like unsermake of regenerating the makefiles)... For this patch we have to regenerate the makefiles and thats a problem, because then its no more a generic KDE build. Do you remember this libaudio.so.2 issue we had some time ago? This happened because we regenerated the makefiles for some patches while having nas installed, and so the dependencies were changed, which is something we want to avoid...

Make it build on standard KDE tarballs without requiring special stuff and we will happily include it...

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

I don't really know much C++, but it looks like the way the correct way to do the patch is as the original author has done it. I could probably shove the contents of the 2 extra files the patch creates into some other files, but that's probably a bad thing to do.

Would it be acceptable to compile it with the altered makefile, but include it as a seperate optional package?

I'll fiddle around with it anyway, and also go pester the original author.

It would be great if you could include this patch to make the Kmilo OSD a bit more compact and nicer looking. Kmilo's default osd is so ridiculously huge ... roll

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

Hi all,
i'm having some problems with krec, that seems to be linked to libaudio.so.2:

krec: error while loading shared libraries: libaudio.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Do I have to do some fix, or it's up to you?

Thank you all, and keep doing this nice work!

That looks like a dependency problem. From what I understand from the Debian package site, the required file is in the Network Audio System package in community. Try downloading it via 'pacman -S nas' and see if it works.

It would be interesting, if it works, to see if others are having this problem since it is not listed as a requirement for Krec.

Hope that works,
Rob.

oops, this seems to be the last package left with the libaudio.so.2 issue, maybe because you are the first who want to use it smile

a simple rebuild of krec does it too, the libaudio.so.2 dependency is an old issue where we regenerated the makefiles while having nas installed...

to rebuild krec:

$ pacman -R nas
$ cd $TEMPORARY_DIR
$ svn co http://kdemod.ath.cx/svn/trunk kdemod
$ cd kdemod/kdemultimedia-krec
$ sudo makepkg -i

So to all people who want to play kde games install nas please (until we get that finally fixed.).

So if I want to re-install kdm I need to reinstall kdebase? Because I can't login with KDM anymore. It only sends me in a loop. So I have to login with the consoll and type startx

Reinstalling kdebase should reinstall kdm, but, if it's a problem with the config, unless you change your configuration files, this won't probably fix your problem... (but you can try reinstalling: it's just a matter of pacman -S kdemod-kdebase).

Try looking in /var/log/kdm.log for a possible indication of the problem, especially if re-installing does not work. There should be some indication of errors there.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

Check your permissions on /tmp. I've seen and heard of permissions getting set to root and not being set back for some reason.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

The fact that you're able to login with console and use 'startx' indicates it's not a graphics card problem (which has resulted in this kind of error message before), but that's a possible root cause to keep on hold. Your HDD space is rather low, but I don't think it should be that, as it stands, causing problems. My vote goes with permissions as the immediate thing to check.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

dunkelstern and funkyou,

Maybe it's time to consider starting two new threads. One for KDEMod patch requests and upgrades, and another one for support. This thread is great (in content and size), and I agree that it's getting hard to find stuff here for users that aren't up to speed.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

A couple subforums for KDEmod would be even better, although I do not think it would fit well on this forum. Is there any plans to get some forums up for KDEmod? If so, I could come over and help with tech support and whatnot, but I think that even two threads will be hard to follow. >.< Cheers.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

chmod and chown are the commands you need. Alternatively, in Konqueror using superuser mode, you can set it there. The commands are a little easier though. Try typing in a terminal:

chown /tmp root:root

and then:

chmod 41777 /tmp

I believe those are correct Try restarting after that to see if kdm loads properly. Hope it helps.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

I have enabled option:"Enable display power management" and my display should power off after 5min... Sometimes it works, another time not. I don't know what can be a reason of that behavior. Someone had similar problem? That bug don't exist with clean KDE.

It isn't a critical bug but it's very irritating.

Re: kdemod - a lightified and modular KDE + additional patches

Yes I also have that problem, but it was even worse not long ago where kwin would use up 100% CPU resource and KDE just appeared to be dead, and even worse is if you are unlucky keyboard inputs simply don't work, the only way to get the system working again without restarting is to remotely restart X through ssh for example. Now it's just like what you described, monitor poweroff sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
