I agree with a previous poster here.
The new icon is much worse than
the old one. It's somehow dark
and depressing. Perhaps what the
RIAA wants us to feel...
They should have just spiffed up
the old one a bit if anything.
Is there a way to get back the nice
yellow icon without going all
the way thru uninstalling the
current version, getting the icon,
and installing the new version
again?

Hi

I'm a complete noob. How do I install this? I d/l the all-in-one version.

The documentation page doesn't work on Sourceforge (broken link).

Thanks

Mick

unpack it (just double-click on it)
enter the repository with konqueror, you should see a install.sh file, to execute it :
rigth click in the konqueror window windows->action->open a terminal here

type "su" in the termianl
enter your root passwd when asked,
then type ./install.sh

I know this is the noob-kde-tools-way but this is what u asked for :)

Thanks for the help, but I get errors after entering ./install.sh.

I'll try the mailing list.

Is there an archive of the mailing list?

The documentation page on sourceforge is still broken.

Cheers

Try running it as a normal user and enter the root password when it asks.
If you still see an error, check the log file the program generates. In my case it was a missing library. BTW, I use MDK 9.2, downloaded the allinone package.

Good luck,

I don't know why but the FastTrackPlugin doesn't work.
No problems with openFT and gnutella but it doesn't connect with FastTrack.
Any hints?

This is a very nice app, although I don't like the new icon.

(To the question above:) The reason you get more results with the Kazaa network is simply because there are more users on that network than on the gift-fasttrack network. For example, if I look at the number of users now, there are just over 1000 on the gift-fasttrack network, and over 1 million on Kazaa. (Which explains a lot :-)

nope. gift-fasttrack connects to the 'real' FastTrack-network, which is kazaa. And Apollon shows me here 2.9 million users.

Before compiling Apollon on FreeBSD, you need to install net/gift, net/gift-openft, net/gift-fasttrack and net/gift-gnutella from the ports or just fetch the binaries (pkg_add -r gift etc.)!
After that, its rather simple.
cd apollon-0.9.2
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-extra-includes=/usr/local/include --with-extra-libraries=/usr/local/libs
gmake
su
gmake install

I will try to get some spare time and submit apollon and several other apps to the ports tree. Good luck till then!

it seems that the uic didn't create the header and source of preferences.ui.

you can create them manually:

#uic preferences.ui -o preferences.h
#uic preferences.ui -i preferences.h -o preferences.cpp

is your $QTDIR/bin part of your $PATH?

I used apollon since a few month, and I can say apollon is the best FileSharing Programm for Linux. Very good work guys!

Ive used this for a while, but could never get the OpenNap protocol to work. Otherwise, i love it.

AFAIK the OpenNap-plugin is search
only. You can't download
sth. so it's useless ATM

opennap works without problems over here (searching, downloading).

does anyone else notice that the reults that gift-fasttrack finds are not very good (in number of results) compared to kazaa?

Report

Actually ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC results. Can't find anything :(.. Been looking for Scriabin and other classical composers and managed to find a track or 2 with gift-curs and nothing with Apollon. Not sure if Apollon is to blame, but the search-more feature is totally useless, just says 0 results found after less than a second after clicking it.. Unfortunately cannot rate this program as good :(

apollon and gift-curs use the exact same engine, the gift-daemon. There is nothing more to say. You can't blame Apollon for that. I just searched for Scriabin, too. OpenFT gave me 47 hits within 2 seconds.

I can recommend letting Apollon
run for a while. It gets better
then.
Furthermore my experience is that
Kazaa often shows a bit more results
but when I try to download from
them it often fails. Apollon seems
a bit more reliable and searches
the Gnutella protocol, too. It all
depends on what you are looking for.
It's good for the main stream things.
If you want very rare files
however you should better use "amule"
though.

Only 65%?
Hope this still rises.
Folks, Apollon really does
deserve more IMHO.
I especially like the cool
KDE integration. You can
just go on with your other apps
and you get a bubble message above
the tray whenever sth. is completed.
And Apollon is really user-friendly
and therefore a true KDE app:
No geeky settings. It's all quite
straightforward. An edonkey-plugin
for gift is still on my wish-list
however. That would be just great.
