Seeing as how useful this is, it should be included in KDE Extragear, or even better, KDE itself!ar
I'll as soon as possible make a FreeBSD package, unless I fail to compile it, or make it work.
BTW: Do I notice... my own Window Decoration? Thanks very^very much!
And since I pick the best free/open KDE software, I might include this in The Dark Star. If it works.

Again, thanks.

Hey, thanks!

Sorry, you will have to wait for next version (I'll try to make support for everything connected to X). Now I've switched to Gentoo and I need to compile some more:( But, when I finish I'll be working on kX Generator.

PS. DarkLight Windeco is my favourite windeco:) I am using it all the time. Great work!!

I am currently planning porting kX Generator to GTK (gX Generator?) - of course after KDE version is finished and stable. Then I am planning to make a musical software (I once wrote a class that could read GP4 files, now I need to rewrite it - some bugs). If someone wants to implement it as a control center module, feel free to mail me and I'll give you help about Xorg class that is used to read and modify X configuration file (now such reference isn't available, I'll write it for request).

Is this really a generator?
Or can I edit existing files
and it takes over the settings?
If yes I suggest you name it
(at least) kX Edit.

Yes, kX Generator edits existing files. kX Edit is a nice name, I'll change it in future releases:)

Your app is realy wonderfull, and I waited for a long time to have distro replacement of admin tools like this in the kontrole center.

Unfortunately, I think that while it make sense to a sysadmin to have an X configurator, for the end user, its a big mess and he'll get completely lost between kde kbd config, display properties, mouse configuration and your module. Indeed, tere will be 2 places to configure resolution: one for Xorg modes and one for Desktop size which is confusing for the user especialy if the panels are at 2 different places.

A gret thing (IMHO) would be to merge Display properties and some device into you panel, or explode your panel under the device subtree. some part would require root priviledges while other wouldn't.
Example, to fix the above example of screen resolution, you would have a panel: configure screens and a panel configure desktop. (just an idea, the aim is to reduce confusion between Xorg resolution configuration and desktop resolution configuration).

Anyway, great start. :-)

I thoutht about it. First I wanted kX Generator to be a control center module, but I desided to the way I am going because:
- kX Generator is too big to fit into single control center module
- I can try to implement it to "Display properties", but such settings like modules of file paths doesn't fit into "Display"
- I can split kX Generator (display properties for display window, modules and other into KControl module) but as you mentioned, sysadmins would like to have an X configurator in one place.
If someone have any ideas about looks of kX Generator, please send me mail or post it on forum. Thanks!

Hey,

This is a preview release, new version is COMPLETLE from scratch and doesn't contain even byte of code from previous versions. I will implement all options step-by-step. But what do you mean you can only modify keyboard options?

./configure failed with the tail of the trace:

...
checking for vsnprintf... yes
checking for snprintf... yes
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

I think this is because I am using Mandriva Cooker with xorg 7.1 which no longer uses the old /usr/X11 paths.

Can someone tell me please how I can fix this to make it build?

Maybe just download compiled binary and run it (i'll try to work more on makefiles in future)
