Finally the site www.brainspace.it is online again with Kompile v0.3 Beta 3.
I'm sorry for the long offline period.

WARNING: Version 0.3 beta 3 of Kompile may be unstable and is relase for testing purpose. If you find a bug and you want report it write me an e-mail: tommaso.frazzetto@gmail.com

I'll be grateful to anyone who help me make Kompile better.

What's Kompile
Kompile is a KDE interface for automatic execution of configurations, compilation and installation of source tarball.
when you compile and install Kompile sources (with normal steps "configure && make && make install") some new voices are added to
konqueror action menu for tar-based compressed archives (.tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz, .tar.bz2).

What's new in v0.3
The major innovation of version 0.3 is profiles system. Now Kompile always use a profile to perform an installation/uninstallation.
You can define a custom profile for install an application or use default profile to do it. If you use default profile, Kompile will
create a package's profile based on options specified in your default profile.
Some profiles options are:
- Source tarball backup for uninstallation
- Packages informations (name, version, release, license, description)
- Temporary decompression folder options
- Source configuration options (prefix, enable/disable warnings, enable disable libs such as Qtopia, etc.)
- Compiler options (c/c++/fortran compilers flags, executables, prerocessor flags,linker flags, etc.)
- Simple user (= non root) installation options
- Use checkinstall instead make install (and specify checkinstall options)

More screenshots:
You can find more screenshots at:

There are 3 modes to use kompile:
1) Run Kompile form KDE System menu and use GUI to invoke Kompile functions. There are 3 major icons:
- Install options:
- Standard installation: use default profile to install new package
- Profiled installation: create a new profile from scratch to perform installation
- Uninstall options:
- Standard uninstallation: remove a package using default profile (may be useful if installed pkg has different prefix form default)
- Repair/Remove Installed Packages: give a list of installed packages to perform package's repair/remove
- Tools:
- Manage Profiles: Modify/delete existing profiles
- Kompile Setup: here you can specify you preference for some kompile functions and MODIFY YOUR DEFAULT PROFILE

2) Invoke Kompile from command line whit below options (form "kompile --help" command):
-i, --install Perform install operation
-u, --uninstall Perform uninstall operation
-t, --use-tarball Use specified tarball for requested operation [need -i or -u]
-p, --use-profile Use specified profile for operation [need -i or -u. Exclude "--use-tarball"]
-s, --search-profile Use with "--use-tarball ".Kompile searches a profile compatible with "". If doesn't find one compatible use default profile.

3) Select operations directly form konqueror kompile menu:
- Perform default package installation: use default profile to install new package. It's equal to "kompile --install --use-tarball "
- Search compatible profile for installation: Kompile searches a profile compatible with "" to perform installation. If doesn't find one compatible use default profile. It's equal to "kompile --install --search-profile --use-tarball "
- Perform default package uninstallation: remove a package using default profile (may be useful if installed pkg has different prefix form default). It's equal to "kompile --uninstall --use-tarball "
- Search compatible profile for uninstallation: Kompile searches a profile compatible with "" to perform installation. If doesn't find one compatible use default profile.It's equal to "kompile --uninstall --search-profile --use-tarball "

 permision stuff, ...

i've a nice suggestion: replace your first dialog "Super User requird" by a dialog with only a textfield and a "Browse..." button, where you can enter the destination path ("--prefix"). Check the destination, if the user has write permissions to it. if no, ask for the root password at the time you call "make install". so, you reache exacty the same as now - even more than that.

And, please add default options and a editor where one can add user defined ./configure options. Then, your program will be (nearly) perfect.

Very usefull application. Maybe you could improve it if you integrate it with the CheckInstall program ( http://asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/ ). In this way you could compile an app and then install it as a rpm or deb package.

 Very nice start

This is a very nice start of a beautiful application!

Though I must mention that it would be nicer if you made the files needed for the uninstallation process at the time of installation. This way -in case someone is dealing with a large source code tarball- she/he doesn't have to wait all over again.

But most important is, this kind of initiatives makes Linux/KDE more attractive for users of other OS's, my mom etc. ;)

Keep up the good work.

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
