I'm using Gentoo and have successfully run the configure script, but when I run make, it says no targets specified and no makefile found.

Any suggestions?

I am a newbie developer and this is my first app, so I really don't know how to fix makefile problems... In next release i'll put precompiled binary (not rpm), so users who can't compile can run binary version (it depends only on QT and KDE, so it should run).

i like the idea, but it would have to provide some features to be accepted more widely and maybe integrated into kde:
-it should not "generate" a config file, but instead have a save option and automatically load the current file on start.
-it should detect the installed graphics adapter automatically (could be done easily grepping dmesg)
-it should detect available 3rd-party drivers, e.g. the comercial ati and nvidia ones, but should recommend the free drivers.

if it does that i am sure it will be part of kde in future (or at least of some distros).

keep up the work!

1) it should not "generate" a config file, but instead have a save option and automatically load the current file on start.
2) it should detect the installed graphics adapter automatically (could be done easily grepping dmesg)
3) it should detect available 3rd-party drivers, e.g. the comercial ati and nvidia ones, but should recommend the free drivers.

AD. 1:
It loads current xorg.conf file on start from /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Path to xorg.conf can be changed in future version via command line argument.
To save automatically - work in progress.

AD. 2:
VERY nice idea.

AD. 3:
I'll try to do this, but can't guarantee (for can I know how to detect only NVIDIA drivers).

Thanks!

>>It loads current xorg.conf file on start from /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Path to xorg.conf can be changed in future version via command line argument.

- i meant just changing the text on the button to "save" and not "generate".

- you can easily find out which config file is used with:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "Using config file:"



>>I'll try to do this, but can't guarantee (for can I know how to detect only NVIDIA drivers).

- well if nvidia adapter is detected for example, you could offer the driver choice for:
1) vesa (always supported)
2) nv
3) nvidia (if the nvidia modul is loaded; can be checked with lsmod on gnulinux and kldstat on freebsd)

I get the folowing error during make:
./configure: line 1379: syntax error near unexpected token `kxgenerator,'
./configure: line 1379: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(kxgenerator, 0.2)'
make: *** [config.status] Error 2
I have properly linked automake-1.6 and aclocal-1.6.
I'm running slackware 10.2, with automake-1.9 and aclocal-1.9
Any ideas?

Very good idea. I'm using Suse so I don't have any problems but when I move to Gentoo I'm going to use it for sure...

It's a makefile problem. I've had this error sometimes on my machine too, but I've released 0.1 version just to know it's worth developing. Please run ./configure script with --enable-debug=full option and if it crash show me the debug output.

The KDE Crash Handler Kicks in, as it did before. The output is different now though. I did use the debug option with configure. #6 - #10 keep overwriting #0-#5 for some reason. I can't get the first part with either a "copy" or "save as."

Oh, so that's other kind of problem:( It's because xorgFile class have too many variables. I can't do nothing with it - the new version will use different class and will be written almost from scratch. The only thing that will be left almost untouched is GUI. Sorry for this, next release in about 2-3 weeks, please wait for 0.2.

No problem. I was curious about it and wanted to keep an eye on its development. I'll be checking out the next version.

must make a symlink from aclocal and automake to aclocal-1.6 and automake 1.6. After these works fine

Thanks.
I'm using Slackware-current, and created a symlink from aclocal-1.9 to aclocal-1.6 and same for automake. I'm guessing this could be edited in the Makefile?

Hi !!

It says me that it needs automake 1.6, but I have automake 1.9 and it doesn't want to compile.

What can I do ?

Make symlink from automae/aclocal 1.9 to 1.6. It works fine :-)
