Description:

This is a quick-and-dirty LD_PRELOAD hack that allows *some* Gtk applications to use KDE's file dialogs when run under KDE.

The Gtk file chooser functions have been overridden to communicate with this KDE module/application.

After compiling and installing this, you can run Gtk applications in 2 ways:

A. call /usr/local/bin/kgtk-wrapper gimp

B. i. Create a symbolic link from the wrapper script to your application, e.g.
ln -s /usr/local/bin/kgtk-wrapper /usr/local/bin/gimp
ii. Make sure /usr/local/bin is before /usr/bin (or wherever gimp is installed) in your $PATH
iii. Now simply run 'gimp' - this should find the wrapper script first.

If this works OK, then edit the .desktop file (e.g. /usr/share/applications/gimp.desktop) to have "Exec=/usr/local/bin/[appname]" instead of "Exec=[appname]", e.g. for gimp.desktop this would be:

Exec=/usr/local/bin/gimp-remote-2.2 %U

or:

Exec=/usr/local/bin/kgtk-wrapper gimp-remote-2.2 %U


So far I have tested this with the following applications:

1. Kino. Works perfectly - in fact Kino was my main reason for doing this.
2. Firefox. Works with Firefox 1.5, but *not* Firefox 1.0.x
3. GIMP. Again, seems to work just fine. However, there is no progress bar on file loading - as GIMP uses a progress bar embedded in the file chooser.
4. Inkscape. Works OK - at least 0.43
5. Streamtuner - the folder browser button works.
6. AbiWord - does *not* work. Don't even try...
7. Glade2. Seems to work OK, however I have had it crash when loading Kino's .glade file, but not always. So I'm not sure if this is Glade's fault, or mine.
8. Eclipse. Will work only if dlsym can be overriden

As the only Gtk apps I use are Kino, GIMP, and a little of Firefox, this library works great for me. Your millage may vary, and please note that this is only a quick hack to get things working now for me. I'm not sure how stable it will be under heavy usage, so don't be surprised if it breaks. However, if it does break - the only thing that should happen is that the Gtk apps will fall back to using the standard Gtk dialogs.


p.s. Before anyone asks, as they always do:
Widget style: QtCurve, works for KDE and Gtk (also does KDE->Gtk icon mapping). This is set on the "Clear" variation.
Window decoration: Crystal with Knifty buttons
Font: Verdana. However, I have recompiled FreeType with the TrueType byte encoder enabled - this give great looking non anti-aliased fonts (otherwise they look *horrible*)




Changelog:

0.11.0
------
1. Gtk3 support.
2. Better, and safer, lookup of file filters.
3. Correctly determine size of string needed for pidfile!
4. Add thunderbird, and LibreOffice apps, to list of gtk2 apps.
5. Cleanup usless stuff; remove kdialogd3, qt3, qt4, kgtk2-wrapper, kqt3-wrapper, kqt4-wrapper.
6. Merge kgtkXX-wrapper scripts into kgtk-wrapper
7. Install kdialogd4 into KDE4 libexec dir.
8. Fix crash where client is terminated whilst file dialog is open.
9. Configurable debug. Pass cmake -DKGTK_DEBUG=true
When starting app, set KGTK_DEBUG env var, e.g.

KGTK_DEBUG=0x10 kgtk-wrapper lowriter

0x01 Connection debug
0x02 General debug
0x04 Filter get and set debug
0x08 Filter creation debug
0x10 Custom widget debug
0x20 dlsym debug
Values may be combined

10. If LibreOffice is detected (app is libreoffice, lowriter, etc.) then also set the OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP env var to gnome, so that we get nicer
themeing.
11. When passing filters to KFileDialog, replace / with \/
12. Make filter combo non-editable.
13. When returning selected filter to Gtk app, also return the filter name and not just the file pattern. This way if two filters have the same file pattern the corrent one can be selected.
14. Support for checkbox custom widgets.
15. Save location history per app.

kqt3-wrapper works fine with opera. I think its kgtk-wrapper (the main one), which is not detecting opera as a Qt3 app. I'll fix this for the next release, but for now edit/create ~/.kde/share/config/kgtkrc to have the following:

[Apps]
opera=qt3


This will tell the kgtk-wrapper script to use the Qt3 LD_PRELOAD library for opera.

Really nice work! But it would be much better if you could fix the translation of the dialog. Unfortunately i18n is still broken at least for me.

Thank you and keep up your great work!

OK, it seems like I need a translation file for each language. Can you provide such a translation? There's only about 7 strings that really need to be translated.

To do this (for Spanish), copy kdialogd3/po/kdialogd3.pot to kdialogd3/po/es.po and edit the new es.po file, look for the 'msgid' strings, and place there translation into 'msgstr' . Then email me the .po file, and I'll include it with the next release.

(Looks like if I create a dummy es.po file, compile it, and install it, then the standard KDE strings get translated - otherwise they don't)

There seems to be a problem in gimp, handling a path with blank spaces. If you open an image, that is located in a path with blank spaces, and then do a "save as" , gimp displays an error message. It is working fine otherwise.

...umm, yes there are! Look in KGtk-0.9.2/kdialogd3/po, there you should find:

kdialogd3.pot

[KGtk-0.9.2/kdialogd4/po also contains similar files]

Have you tried to recompile it ?

I have tried with the following versions :
gnome-devel and gnome-core-devel 1:2.18.3ubuntu2
kde-devel 5:47

Maybe I miss one package ?
What do I need as package except from gnome-devel and gnome-core-devel and kde-devel ?

To have a package would be great! - KGtk should really be standard in every Kubuntu!

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.
