KGenlop - Gentoo emerge notifier

This is a set of scripts to popup a kdialog message about the currently compiling package(s).

ikgenlop.sh is the more advanced one. It uses the inotify API to watch emerge.log and inform you when something new happens.

It can be run from KDE autostart, or xinitrc or whatever, no need for cron.

The simpler one, kgenlop.sh script will just call genlop and pop up a message when it has something to say.

You can run it as a cron job e.g. like this:
*/5 * * * * /home/user/bin/kgenlop.sh 2>/dev/null

You need app-portage/genlop and of course kde-base/kdialog installed.

The included Makefile will copy the script to ~/bin and set up a symlink in the KDE autostart folder (~/.kde4/Autostart). Do not run make if you don't want this.


1.6: mostly cosmetic changes, typos etc. changed calls to inotify to only report on rw changes, not only ro so other apps don't cause a storm of popups.
1.5: moved settings to ~/.ikgenloprc, create this file on first run, introduce a PID file and use it to detect multiple instances.
1.4: added a couple of tunables to steer verbosity. Thanks to Krog for testing.
1.3: many more features for iknotify to make it more annoying ;)
1.2: many changes, use a combination if inotify and tail to push status updates to kdialog. Please excuse the brute-force usage of awk and friends. Cleanup will follow later.
1.1: Added inotify based version after suggestion from user Krog.
1.0: first revision

Well I just found out that the install location for the autostart version is wrong.

It should be ~/.kde4/Autostart instead of ~/.kde4/share/autostart.

That should be fixed in the 1.5 version, coming Real Soon Now...

I did'nt tryed the installation, just tuned the script and manually set as autostart in systemsettings.
In the future release there will be other changes/improvements?

I'm always open to suggestions!

Probably the next step should be an ebuild.

But before that it needs to be possible to be installed system-wide (right now I assume everything will be in $HOME) and I still need to figure out where to put stuff for that.

maybe putting the script in /etc/xdg/autostart ? I can't try now but please try it :-)
also looking the script it seems that it will only work in :0 but sometimes I have more than one session active

1.5 sometimes crashes with this error:

ikgenlop-1.5.sh: line 232: USER_FREQ * : syntax error: operand expected (error token is "* ")

1.4 seems unaffected

Ooops, stupid typo.

Try replacing the affected line with this:

# back off a bit

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.
