1) how are you trying to install it?
2) what files have you got hold of?
3) what has gone wrong already?
4) have you read the installation docs for k3b?

K3b is an integral part of KDE (>= 3.0.3 at least). You will have to browse your menus until you find K3b or start it from the command line.

I must disagree with that statement JZ, but will happily announce my ignorance if you provide some documentation to back that up.

I haven't found K3B as part of a KDEBase install yet, and from your statement that is what I am understanding you are saying?

Cool

This is from the K3b site:

02.07.2002
K3b moved to kdeextragear-1

Since there have been many discussions on the kde mailing lists about various CD-Writing programs in the kde main packages it has been decided to move all of them out and the new package kdeextragear-1 has been created. K3b is now part of it. See the K3b download page for new cvs instructions.

We are not yet sure if K3b will stay in kdeextragear of if we move back to sourceforge completely. That mainly depends on if the kde translators will take kdeextragear seriously.


I understood kdeextragear-1 to be part of KDE. Is that not so?

I do not believe so, kde-base is the kde-base kde-extra-gear is an Extra's package containing other KDE applications. In fact it's looking like it's not been implemented yet, as the package appears (to me) to only be in unstable directories:
http://ftp.gtlib.cc.gatech.edu/pub/kde/ls-lR

Run a find for K3B on that page and I think you'll see what I mean.

However, I think I see what you are/were saying, as it's been a package by itself that was necessary to download and install whereas now it's part of the KDE suite of packages that include many kde applications that you don't have to go elsewhere to get.

... in the kde main packages it has been decided to move all of them out ... K3b is now part of it ...

That was the reason I assumed it is an official part of KDE. (Also, SuSE 8.1 has it installed automatically, maybe that's why I thought it belongs to the main package).

Sorry, Me_Newbie. You'll have to download it and compile it then (if it is not on the Mandrake disks). Don't forget to use the command
./configure --prefix=/opt/KDE3
or to wherever KDE resides under Mandrake.

Oh no, you were right, I guess I left this part out of my post above. We were both right in a sense. I thought you meant in the kde-base package, or the minimum required packages for KDE3 to run, but you meant that it had moved from a solo package into the KDE packages that help to enhance an default KDE setup.

Most likely though they should be able to find a Mandrake mirror and urpmi them in instead of compiling.



Thanks for the update on the K3B going KDE packaged. Definitely good news

Cool

Yes , but one year old, that was for K3b 0.7, they are now at 0.9.1, which seems to be close to stable ... even better .

I'm personally down to just K3B. I don't mind kde/qt apps so much, I just wish they were faster somehow. Loading time is nuts and was one of the main reasons I dropped kmail (I liked it's features but sylpheed kills it in loading time).

Cool

Me_Newbie are you running Redhat 9.0 or Mandrake 9.1 your Distro by your name says Mandrake 9.1, if you are running Redhat 9 you can download the RPM for RH 9 here:

RPMs for RH9, K3B

Then you will find your architecture

uname -r

See what kernel and on your architecture eg. on i386 or i686, download the appropriate rpm and install:

rpm -ihv k3b*.rpm

If using Mandrake you might have to compile using the tar.gz package.

The easiest way to get it (k3b) going is to install synaptic... Once you get that going it is quite simple. At least, I didn't have any problems, and I am also using RH9.
