This app looks really great :) Do you plan to release a version for KDE 3.5?

When I add it to kicker kicker crashes (Kanotix/Debian Sid). BTW: There are two apps named kding. Wouldn't it be wise to communicate and either work together or rename the apps? -> http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=28386

Hello, I'd like to use this app. Compiled it and installed. Everything worked fine, but how can I start the applet.There's no entry in add applet to panel? Thanks

Just run configure with --prefix=/path/to/kde/
This helped in my case. However kding 0.3.1 crashes kicker everytime I try to insert it. I use SuSe 9.3 Professional with KDE 3.4. If you want I can submit you the backtrace.

Thanks. The problem with adding kding is solved. But I got the same problem as you, kicker crashes.
