Unfortunately, I'm getting LOADS of missing dependencies with this package. I think something vital has been left out (kdebase, maybe?). I'm copying each one from another VL partition as I get a notice. Will see if it works when I get them all copied, but the package as it stands does not work on VL7 Standard.

Hi Granny;
I did some fixes to it this morning.
Could you try an uninstall and reinstall and see.
You may have to clear the cache in gslapt if you get a http error or md5 checksum error.

I had a bad upload on this package last night, but it should be fixed.

I'll try the uninstall and reinstall. I don't know how valuable my report will be, though, because I copied many, many dependencies over from another VL partition and they won't be removed if I uninstall K3B. I'll give it a go, though.

After all my copying of libs I did get K3B to run. I burned copies of four DVDs and they were all good. So I didn't have to boot into Windows for copying--I'm happy about that!

A number of fixes have been done for k3b and it should be good now.
Please give it a test and let us know how it worked for you.
Thanks.

I installed the new k3b package on my Athlon 64 desktop, where I hadn't tried before and hadn't copied over the many dependencies. Everything seems to have gone well, k3b started and looked good. I didn't try to burn anything but I don't expect problems.

Then I removed k3b that I had installed on the Sempron yesterday. I used removepkg. I cleared the cached files in Gslapt and installed a new copy of k3b. Again, things are looking good though I didn't burn anything. The menus weren't right on the previous package but on the fixed package they seem to be what they should be.

I do get a ton of error messages when I start k3b from the command line, but I've always had those with KDE programs and they don't seem to cause problems. So I just ignore them.

So this k3b package seems good to go as far as I'm concerned. Thanks SOOOO much!

Awesome GrannyGeek;
Thanks for going the extra mile on the testing.  I'm going to put a fork in this one and call it done. ;D
