Omaque (comicbook reader)

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  595
Submitted:  Jan 6 2009
Updated:  Sep 20 2009


A simple comicbook reader written in Ruby and based on Okular.

* Korundum (KDE4 version).
With Debian packages simply install korundum4
Ubuntu: libkorundum4-ruby1.8

* Okular (with the comicbook backend). In Debian/Ubuntu it is available in okular-extra-backends

Replace path_to_kde with a KDE prefix directory (eg. /usr).
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path_to_kde .
make install

Besides the menu entry, you can start Omaque from the command line with:



* Bookmarks!
* Various fixes

* Important bugfixes
* Optimized ComicBook directory engine
* A nice feature for some: Select which folder to open by default
* Open comicbook from other program or command line

* Support for non-archived/folder comicbooks
* Zip and Rar files can be opened now out of the box
* Helper script to execute Omaque from the command line

* Do not crash when the Okular part is not available
* Packaged for Debian and Debian-based distributions.

What's the purpose of a comic reader with okular as backend? Just to have a simpler menu?

I used to use gwenview + kio-slaves in kde 3, in kde 4 it moved to okular, but okular speed
with archives/cbr/cbz is really too low, so I moved to comix (not a kde app), and it's way faster!

>What's the purpose of a comic reader with okular as backend? Just to have a simpler menu?

Because I like Okular. QComicBook has some annoyances and Comix(just tried it) has an horrible interface. And yes, Omaque is simpler. It can improve and get more features, though.

The Okular backend can see improvements in load speed. I might tackle this in the future. But it uses the same libraries the KIO Zip slave uses.

Well, or the last sentence is false or Kio Zip had some bad regression
moving to kde4.

You can test yourself : pack 50 MB of images in a zip / a rar , rename to cbz
or cbr and open it with gwenview-3.5.10 (less than 10 seconds here)
or with okular (I got a coffee waiting...)

The problem is that the Okular backend opens *every* image when loading the comicbook to get the pictures sizes, which is suboptimal.

Gwenview, in KDE both 3 and 4, opens only one image. I forgot Gwenview. It is almost perfect, yes. I just have not filed some bug reports for some annoyances.

As you can see in http://websvn.kde.org/?view=rev&revision=917041 the comicbook backend got a nice update :)

This is from kde trunk (soon to be 4.3). I am not sure if this will be backported to 4.2.

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
