Depends on  KDE 3.x

Description:

This servicemenu is for people that, like me, are too lazy to compute all the conversions manually and get crazy with the bunch of different units and currencies around.
I wanted to have a simple scripts for quick conversions between the most common units of Temperature, Currency, Weight, Distance, Velocity, Degrees, Volume, Area. This is because I spent most of my life in Europe but now I live in the USA, and I still cannot get used to their units.
These scripts are not really meant to be a complete "encyclopedia" of all the tons of existing units. Just the most common ones are listed, so you can quickly find and select the entry you want, without getting crazy in a jungle of entries and without waiting for an external application to start.

There are two folders, named conver and conver_submenus respectively.
The difference is that the two files in "conver" allow you to choose the conversion types through two combo boxes whilst "conver_submenus" provides the choices through one submenu list and one combo box (quite hard to explain.. I'd suggest to try both and pick up the one you prefer). I did two version because I wasn't sure about which is the most handy; it's more a matter of personal preferences.

Currency values of course are just approximate, since they would need to be updated (the values I put refer to December 26th 2006). If you wish to use the exact values, you can easily update them, editing the file conver.sh (or conver_submenus.sh, according to which you have chosen to use), in the section "CURRENCY VALUES" at the top of the file.


INSTALLATION:

You just need to do two quick operations:
1) copy both the included files (conver.sh and Conversions.desktop) in the KDE servicemenus folders,
which is located in /home//.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus
2) make the file conver.sh executable by everyone:
to do this, just change directory into servicemenus folder,
then type: chmod a+x conver.sh

~~~~~~~~ Done! ~~~~~~~~

**********************************************

I also added a link to console-only version... for people that are too lazy to right click on any window... :-)
The 3rd screenshot refers to the console version




Changelog:

Version 1.0 had 3 typos, which cause wrong output messages.. now fixed

I never got around to doing just this, so thank you. I have had my OOo spreadsheet macros rocking, not anymore :)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
