Description:

Kalternatives is a little tool to graphically manage the alternatives system of some GNU/Linux distributions.
Currently supported distributions are:
- Debian
- Fedora
- Mandriva
- openSUSE
- Ubuntu
and any derivate distribution from the above. (See notes in INSTALL about how to specify the right distribution when compiling.)

You must run the module as root for doing changes, otherwise you can just see the available alternatives.




Changelog:

0.13:
* Slightly more robust alternative parsing
* Various fixes in alternative switching

0.12:
* Ported to KDE 4
* Converted into a System Settings module
* Improved the "Add Alternative" dialog
* Note: no translations with this release (mostly a testing release); they will come with the next release

0.11:
* Some bugfixes by Mario Bensi (thanks!)
* Two small memory leaks fixed.

I keep gettting the message that it only works on MDK and Debian. However I'm running Mandrake. No error messages on the command line just the popup window that says it only works on the above distro's.......

Files in the source archive got some persmission related issues (i.e. doc/en is not o+x).

Do you have plans for adding support for creating/removing alternatives? Editing currently existing ain't sufficient I'm afraid.

I've created debian package with kalternatives. It shall be available on http://debian.neo.pl/

Running Kbuntu 9.04 with kde 4.2.2 I get "kcmshell(9793): Unsupported distribution for KAlternatives." error on command line. App opens up but the Groups box is empty.

You didn't specify your distribution when compiling with cmake. See the INSTALL file for more details.

First time I used Ubuntu for the type. Tired again from clean package with Kubuntu. Same results.

You should pass
-DKALTERNATIVES_DISTRO=dpkg
as additional parameter when running cmake. In case you have run cmake already, remove the CMakeCache.txt from the build directory, and try again.

Ahh.. I was reading it wrong. I thought I was supposed to use the distro name as the type. Works now..

Working fine with the Kubuntu 9.04 except the graphical frontend to the sudo (kdesudo) doesn't work with the kalternatives. Sudo does, as told at the INSTALL file.

Maybe a kdesudo bug ? There are not error messages when launching with the "kdesudo kcmshell4 kalternatives" at the konsole.

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.
