gargamel - I looked at Trojita (http://trojita.flaska.net/) a while ago, but it was in the early stages of development, so much so that it didn't support sending email yet. You might want to take a look and see how far the developer has gotten with it.

Just tried trojita. As you say, it's in an early state of development. Good: There are useful hints for end-users, such as, that passwords entered in the respective field in the configuration dialog will cause, that the password is saved in clear, human-readable text on the hard disk.

Apart from that, trojita will need some time (a year or so) before it becomes a viable MUA --- but the potential, that it really becomes that, is there.

Just tried it, too, myself. I'd confirm "seems to work", but found a problem in the GUI: Non-English special characters, such as German umlauts, are displayed with a wrong character set. I found no way to change this in the settings dialog.

Note, that this is only in the GUI. The content, i. e. file and folder names, is displayed correctly, once the correct character set is chosen! Finally, memory consumption is lower than with KDE, but not *that* much lower...

Apart from that, my sympathy for Razor-Qt grows constantly.

prepared some qt-desktop packages (razortqt-0.4.1 with a brand-new policykit agent included) for 13.37 and current, i486 and x86_64, to ease the path for who wants to try it

- slackware-13.37
- slackware64-13.37
- slackware-current
- slackware64-current

Thanks, Ponce!
Gave it a test drive this morning and so far it is looking good.
Thanks, again!

I just built and installed razor-qt via slackbuilds.org but when I use it I get the KDE taskbar at the bottom and cashew at the top right. Anyone know why that might be and how to stop it?

I've tried the slackbuild on slackware-current and get an error after selecting window manager

"no system tray detected on this device"

if you're not already doing it, use openbox as window manager, is the one suggested by razorqt's devs.
