Description:

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.
Thanks


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)

Usage
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 "

Just tried out the new 0.3
beta version. I'm still wondering
what the intented target audience for this tool is. IMHO such a tool is
primarily useful and needed for all those people who dont know much about
Linux and are afraid to go to
the command-line but want to try
out software for which no package for their distro exists. Nice, if Kompile is also useful for geeks, but the user-interface shouldnt be too cluttered with pro-options as it is at the moment. Less is more. But this
app sure looks quite promising.
From a novice point of view I think these are the major problems right now:
- The buttons on the main window are labeled confusingly. Two times it says options and the setup (=options) is behind the third button. The idea with large buttons is user-friendly and nice, but to hide two other buttons behind each button is unnecessary. Just make the window a bit larger and group all buttons below each other
and write a short description next to it like "Install software source package". Use verbs like "Install" not "Installation" to make it easier to understand for the novice user what will happen next. Use the standard "..." behind captions to indicate a dialog box is following.
- The whole thing with profiles
should be off by default. Novice users
dont know about profiles - they just
want to install something.
- Konqueror context menu: Very useful, but the wording is strange. It should not mention the application name (Kompile) but simply a verb: Install source package. The submenu is not necessary and confusing. Just clicking on "Install source package" should be enough.
- If you want to provide configure options for geeks, Kompile could perhaps have an "Expert configuration..." button on the first
installation screen where it shows the output of "configure --help" and provides a command-line. Here you could place profiles as simple history drop-down list, like in a browser.
- It would be cool if Kompile could
detect a KDE application by analysing ./configure output and automatically add --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
- Checkinstall support is great! This hides the difference during uninstall for the user between software installed by package and software installed by source. If Checkinstall is on though, all mentions of "Uninstall" within Kompile should completely disappear. Instead there should be a hint after installation that the user can uninstall the package safely with his favorite package manager.

Forgot sth. important:
Please auto-detect checkinstall. If it is installed it should be used automatically by default. In an ideal world, Kompile and checkinstall will come installed by default with the distro. A user downloads a file, right-clicks on it and selects "Install source package". The package is installed with as less options and questions as possible and the user can use his/her usual package manager to uninstall it again.

looks like a great improvement for the "normal" user to me. At the time software-management is very easy when you've got the package for your distro... and ten times harder when you dont have. should really be a part of KDE4. Maybe you could even include distro-specific "plugins" to handle the various package-systems too, so that in future the "normal" KDE-User really has a central place to go to when it's about new software?

Great app! Used it in the past and I'm glad it's still being worked on. Despite the UI quirks discussed in a previous post I think I'll use it again.
One gripe, though. If you file the app under "KDE Improvements", it shows up http://on www.kde-look.org, where it really doesn't belong. May I suggest "Utilities" instead?

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
