The BOINC team release a cross-platform GUI to control the BOINC clients. And, as always, one size doesn't fit all. The operation of the standard BOINC manager software lacks the ease of use one comes to expect when used to KDE applications. Additionally, the standard manager software is lacking in some areas.

To overcome these actual and perceived deficiencies, KBoincMgr was born into this world. The advantages of KBoincMgr are too few to mention, but if they weren't, they would include the following gems.

* The one instance of KBoincMgr can manage multiple BOINC clients. This prevents the Taskbar from becoming cluttered with many instances of boincmgr with the subsequent confusion inflicted upon the long suffering user, ie, you.

Not only is KBoincMgr imbued with this startling feature, but on startup KBoincMgr will attempt to connect to all configured clients.

How can sliced bread compete with that?

* Access to the Internet is sometimes controlled by some authorisation / authentication server. It the author's case, this is a Cisco PIX server. If the authentication lapses, completed results queue until the user authenticates with the server again. As with most things to do with security, it is a great idea and would be even better if it didn't make things harder to use.

In a futile attempt to make life easer, KBoincMgr contains a facility whereby an authorisation script can be specified for each managed BOINC client. This script can be run manually or automatically whenever a result is completed.

Since such scripts will probably contain password and other sensitive data, the user can specify which items are to be secured and KBoincMgr will store that information in the KDE KWallet facility.

* From time to time, it is also necessary to log onto the BOINC client machine. To assist in this, each managed BOINC client can have its own embedded "Konsole" window.

Now if that's not enough to get you using KBoincMgr you must be a few kangaroos short in the top paddock!

Any chance of an update which will compile with automake-1.10 and such? Hell, I'd be happy with a patch, because I've not been able to compile this program on my box (and I really want to).

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
