* Fixed a problem in kcad.cpp which was preventing clean compilation. Should work better now. (my apologies for such a sloppy release!)

I am running KDE3.0. It compiled fine, and installed etc ok. But it just wont show up in the Screen Savers menu (and I cant figure out why). Any sugestions (yes I have restarted X, etc).

I've had this problem a few times. On my system (fedora, kde3.1) it was always caused by a corresponding *.desktop file missing from "[KDEDIR]/share/apps/kscreensaver/ScreenSavers/".
Most sources for kde screensavers come with the *.desktop file ready to be moved should you find this is missing.

Remove one of the
#define MODE_NT4_COMPAT
or
#define MODE_WINDOWS_NT4

and it should compile.. What this affects I don't know though :)

My bad. That was corrected _after_ I uploaded the tarball to kde-look. I'll get an updated copy posted shortly... :) -dT-

Ok, it works, thanks.
But I can see nothing ;)

Maybe it's my broken kde on debian unstable (libpng)
Maybe in a week.

Hi! I'm the guy who made the MDK compile post a few threads up. I realized I was using GNU's autoconf version 2.50 (to make kvirc3 compile). I switched back to MDK's autoconf-2.13-11mdk with automake-1.4-20.p5.mdk and I now get the error this post is about, as opposed to the error I originally posted. Sorry for the confusion, I forgot I was using that version...

Well, rerunning this ... make -f Makefile.cvs .. didn't fix the issue on SuSE 7.3.
The screensaver looks cool..but doesn't compile on SuSE 7.2 or 7.3.

On MDK-8.1:

creating config.h
cd . && autoheader
autoheader: error: shell error while sourcing /root/tmp/ah787uxk/traces.sh
make: *** [stamp-h.in] Error 1

I used --disable-debug --prefix=/usr for my configure options. Configure seems to finsh fine (no errors, anyway), but as you see when it goes to create the other Makefiles it goes boom. I have make-3.79.1-6mdk installed. I don't know what other versions you'd need to know.

Have you tried re-building the configure system with "make -f Makefile.cvs"? Some people have reported that this fixes their problems with my packages... (Sorry... hehehe:) -dT-

Mostly, I referred to the sources for existing KSS modules. Feel free to e-mail me if you want... I may be able to provide some simple skeleton code for ya. :) -dT- (brian@shadowcom.net)
