how did you manage to install superkaramba..?
when i tried - at the end of ./configure it informed me unable to compile and that it needed libs/headers from python..
i used the 0.37-RC1 version..

i just tried the same version as yourself - superkaramba RC2 for 10.0 - and it didn't work..
i also just noticed that it's an i686 - so you must be running a 32 bit 10.0..?
i run 64bit
i'll have to wait till the guys comes up with a 64bit version

after several attempts to install superkaramba-0.37-RC2 for 10.0 via yast i still didn't succeed..

i was browsing around in the menu and found the kpackage program..
opening this program i browsed to the dir where i downloaded the superkaramba rpm..
then i made an install - and after a little while the installation went through..

when i looked in the menu under utilities there certainly was the superkaramba icon..
so i opened - and the karamba window opened and asked for the usual choice of theme..
i browsed to my local dir for themes and selected the lwp-8.3.skz..
it opened alright - but it's just a black square..
i can rightclick and open the little menu to toggle etc..
only - the configure is shaded out - so i cannot do anything..

any suggestions on how to make the window visible..?

Captain , same problem here. i downloaded a couple of themes and they both show up as a black box on the desktop. I haven't tried playing around with it to much. But any theme I try shows up as a just a black box.


On my Debian system the themes work but all of them have black backgrounds no matter which background I choose. Might be a bug.

I got superkaramba-0.37-RC2.tar.gz from here. Then compiled it as follows,
Code:
$./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
$make 
#make install
It installs and works fine with all the themes I have tried. Make sure you have installed the KDE and python development libraries.

Just install using yast and it will fetch the packages from the sources you have configured. The packages you need are python-devel, kdelibs-devel and maybe kdebase-devel. in the future, if you don't know the right package names, use the search function in yast.

I just picked up superkaramba-0.37-RC2.tar.gz and running the latest Mandriva. When I run:
$./configure or $./configure --prefix=/usr/bin/kde-config
I get the error, "checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!"

I have been reading the install file and it does say
Quote:
For packages that use the X Window System, `configure' can usually
find the X include and library files automatically, but if it doesn't,
you can use the `configure' options `--x-includes=DIR' and
`--x-libraries=DIR' to specify their locations.
I can only assume its becuase mandriva uses Xorg but where do I find the X include and library files? ...if this is even the problem.

also I thought maybe I didnt have libxorg-X11-devel install but.....
Quote:
[root@me superkaramba]# urpmi libxorg-X11-devel
The following packages can't be installed because they depend on packages
that are older than the installed ones:
libfreetype6-devel-2.1.9-6plf
libxorg-x11-devel-6.8.2-7.1.102mdk
Continue? (Y/n) Y
The package(s) are already installed
The following package names were assumed: libxorg-x11-devel
[root@me superkaramba]# rpm -qa |grep -i xorg*
xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts-6.9-0.cvs20050901.1mdk
xorg-x11-server-6.9-0.cvs20050901.1mdk
xorg-x11-xauth-6.9-0.cvs20050901.1mdk
xorg-x11-6.9-0.cvs20050901.1mdk
libxorg-x11-6.9-0.cvs20050901.1mdk
xorg-x11-xfs-6.9-0.cvs20050901.1mdk
help...
