 Pausing the downloads

 
 by peaveyman on: Feb 12 2012
 
Score 50%

When I have the downloads paused and add another nzb to the queue, the new nzb starts downloading. I would like for it to stay paused.

Also, do you have plans to implement watching bookmarks for the major nzb sites, ie newzbin and nzbmatrix?

Thanks for a great app!!!

Hi peaveyman,

- Actually there are no plans about watching bookmarks from nzb sites.

- Keep a nzb on pause when just added will probably added in the next kwooty release.

Thank you for feedback :)

Cheers,
Xavier

 Kwooty should start minimized to system tray

 
 by m00nraker on: Sep 11 2012
 
Score 50%

Hello Xavier,

on KDE startup Kwooty starts with open main window on the Desktop.

Can you fix it, that Kwooty starts minimized to system tray on KDE startup? I allways have to minimize the window to system tray manually on each KDE startup... Currently I use KDE 4.9.1, but I think/remember, that Kwooty started minimized in earlier versions.

Thats my big wish :-) Maybe you find some time...

Cheers, Kai

 Server connection at startup and wallet password

 
 by m00nraker on: Apr 6 2013

Hi Xavier.

I'm very grateful for your application. So thanks a lot again for this great piece of KDE software and your time you invest into.

I have a little note on startup behavier:

When KWooty starts, it always tries to connect to a news-server, even if there are no pending downloads (empty list). Normally this isn't a big deal. But in my scenario it isn't comfortable. Why:

All my password are stored with KWallet and the wallet is protected by a master password. After KDE login, Kwooty starts automatically minimized to tray. Now it tries to open the wallet to retrieve the password to connect to a news-server. So a dialog box comes up to enter the master password, even if there are no pending downloads. So what I mean, why does Kwooty always tries to connect to a server, even if there are no pending downloads?
Optimized behavior: Kwooty should start minimized to tray but without connecting to a server, when there are no pending downloads. So you don't always have to enter the wallet password each time Kwooty starts up.

What do you think about this ? :-)

Cheers, Kai

Hi Kai,

Sorry for the delay but I'm quite busy these days :(
You can expect that for the next minor release ! :)

I would just change the behavior like that:

- When session is restored, kwooty will start minimized to tray but without connecting to a server when there are no pending downloads.

- When session is not restored, I assume that kwooty will be launched to use it. In that case, connection to server is maintained as user could not understand why kwooty is disconnected (idem once a server has been added in settings, connection should be performed so that user can check that these settings are correct).

What do you think about it ?

Cheers,
Xavier

Hi Xavier.
That would be perfect. Thank you.
One thing to mention: Sometimes Kwooty doesn't extract rar files, even if parity check was Ok. I try do reproduce that and send you a test file later. Nevertheless, great piece of Software.
Chers, Kai

I'm quite busy rigth now but you can expect this feature in a couple of weeks.
I'm looking forward a nzb sample in order to reproduce and fix your issue.

Thx,

 Extraction stopped working

 
 by marcs on: May 13 2013
 
Score 50%

Hi! I have a strange issue in 1.0.1 recently: After downloading the files, it says "extraction complete", but it doesn't extract the files. I can extract manually without any problems. All the neccessary binaries are there (7zip, par2 and the likes) and kwooty recognizes them.

Hi,

In order to see what happens, I would need to reproduce this issue .
If you have a nzb file, whose extracting process does nothing, do not hesitate to send me it by mail.

Btw, it would be also helpful to get your unrar/7z versions.

Thx,
Xavier

Hi! Thanks for the quick reply. It's ALL nzb files, I fear. started a few days ago, out of nowhere :O I am using Gentoo and unrar-5.0.3 and p7zip-9.20.1-r3...
I also checked system integrity with the usual Gentoo tools...

Marcs,

It may be related with unrar 5. Could you try to go back to stable version (4.2.4) and see what happens ?
On my own, I will try kwooty with unrar 5 as soon as available on my distro.

You were right. It works great again with unrar-424. Thanks for helping me out and for kwooty in general.
I have another question: Sometimes when it processes an nzb, I get the error that the download directory is full, which is not true. I then delete the running download, create a new nzb and everything works... Any idea?

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.
