KSalomon is a vocabulary trainer for Kde 3.
It is opensource software written with the Qt and KDE Libraries.

It is based on the so callen Leitner Learning System:
The concept is a card index box in which you can drop several vocabulary files. Words you know, move into folders where they aren't asked very often again. On the otherside, the words you forget, will be tested again and again.
It features the possibility to record/play sounds for the words, different fonts for the languages, several possible correct answers and configurable keybindings for special chars.


( 04/09/2004 0.1.5-beta )
- Bugfixing
- latex support for e.g. mathematic expressions

( 21/06/2004 0.1.4-beta )
the most important changes :
- Pictures can be added to the words
- Export / Import of the kvtml file format
- Bugfixing
- Arts support
- Several possible correct answers

( 04/11/2004 0.1.3-beta-r1 )
Because some people reported troubles with compiling KSalomon, I decided to rewrite the Makefiles.
Released a package for Debian/Sid

( 04/06/2004 0.1.3-beta )
KSalomon doesn't seem to have severe bugs, therefore I named the new release beta.
The user interface has been improved and a few other features like a charmap for entering special chars with the mouse are implemented now.

You can remove the Autom4te folder before making your tarball, it'll slim it a bit.

Your Makefile.am are all very outdated,it seems this project was made with KDevelop-2, you should update to KDevelop-3 or have a look at the current Makefile.am in various KDE apps from cvs HEAD.

I ran KSalomon and could not find out how to make a voc file. When you click New, it open a file dialog, exactly like when you click Open. New should allow you to make a new card or file.
The Open Example did not open any example but gave me a message that I did not understand.
KSalomon crashed when I tried to open the example.box.

I managed eventually to open a file and the yellow background is really too tiring.

I wanted to see if KSalomon could compete with kdeedu apps but a lot would need to be done to achieve KVocTrain or KWordQuiz capabilities.

May I ask you why you are developing yet-another-voc-trainer and not getting involved in kdeedu instead?

Ok, thanks for your feedback..

>You can remove the Autom4te folder before >making your tarball, it'll slim it a bit.
Thanks, I'll do that.
>Your Makefile.am are all very outdated
I'm not sure about the Makefiles.. at least they worked for you ?
So IF they work for most users, I believe that I shoudn't touch them. Beside the fact that this would mean a lot of work, I remember something like "never touch a running system"..
However, please tell me, if they don't work for you.

That's the dialog where you are asked for the name of the new file ( You can read this at the dialog's top, too, so it's not exactly the same ). The background of asking for the filename before creating the file are the sound files. KSalomon needs to know where it should store soundfiles, if you record some.
Hmm, have thought about this a little bit.
Yes, this is not standard, and I didn't see this problem, since I know exactly what every dialog does. So I'm gonna change it, next version.

> The Open Example did not open any >example but gave me a message that I did >not understand.
That's nearly the same point like above. KSalomon asks you for a filename under which it can store the Examples. Will change that.

> KSalomon crashed when I tried to open
>the example.box.
Should clearly not happen.
Could you tell me more ? -Did you have write permissions to the example.box, or have you copied the file into an other directory ?
Because you write that you didn't use the Open Example menu item I don't know what exactly happened. At least I didn't experience such a crash, so I can't traceback this now.

> I managed eventually to open a file and the >yellow background is really too tiring.

:-) Well, that's dependent on you Kde-Settings..
But beside changing these settings you are able to choose a image for the background ( click settings->configure KSalomon and then at the first page onto the background picture )

> I wanted to see if KSalomon could compete >with kdeedu apps but a lot would need to be >done to achieve KVocTrain or KWordQuiz >capabilities.

Well, it's beta now.
And some things in the user interface may still be a little bit confusing..
So I need more feedback like this, because it seems to me that I'm have problems to recognize such things like the points above..
Will change them..

On the other side, I believe that there are many features implemented which are neither in KVocTrain nor in KWordQuiz now.
E.g. support for sound, examples, or the flexibility of testing.
Because I missed these things, but needed them for learning, I decided to start KSalomon.
At least I'm able to learn well with KSalomon ( maybe because I designed it..), but I've tried to make it very flexible, so I hope that it will be useful to other people, too.
However, I'm hacking heavily, because I still want to improve KSalomon.
Since I'm a little bit lazy I'm always looking for efficient methods of learning, which I can then implement in KSalomon..
But I'm also very appreciated if KSalomon is useful to others.

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.
