Including Krusader in the KDEWIN installer


Hi,

we have succeeded to compile Krusader on the
installation of KDEwin using the developer mode using mingw,
and there is already even a windows binary (but only compiled using MinGw 
yet). It is already quite stable on Windows, even when not all the 
functionality works yet.
 See the screenshot and the download link here:
http://groups.google.com/group/krusader-news/browse_thread/thread/c95f20f6053fead5

The source code is on:
http://krusader.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/krusader/trunk/krusader_kde4
or for the latest released beta:
http://krusader.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/krusader/tags/krusader-2.0.0-beta2/

The process, how we compile is described here:
http://krusader.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/krusader/trunk/krusader_kde4/INSTALL?revision=6173&view=markup#l_248

Would it be possible to include Krusader in the KDEwin installer as well, 
please?
Are there some things we should change in order it to be possible?
Of course, since you have more experience with porting to windows, any 
feedback is welcome.

Thanks,

Regards,
Václav Jůza

Yes, of course.
I think we can look in the coming days how to add a redirection to your
binary download on sourceforge I think. For that you should build
krusader and package it and upload it.

krusader can now be build as many other KDE apps on windows:
http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE4/Windows/emerge
(be aware that this tool is not really identical to the gentoo one!)

kdelibs kstandarddirs_win.cpp wrong and useless ?

Hi,

I just had a look at kdelibs/kdecore/kernel/kstandarddirs_win.cpp, it contains 
only one function, which is 
QString KStandardDirs::installPath(const char *type);

This is what you see if you execute "kde4-config --install lib" or something 
else instead "lib".

Why are the directories hardcoded ? Isn't this wrong if they are set to 
something else ? I think kstandarddirs_unix.cpp should be just fine also for 
Windows.

Can somebody please check ?

What do you think is hardcoded there? It's hardcoded in 
kstandarddirs_unix.cpp but kstandarddirs_win.cpp is using 
getKde4Prefix() to get the correct kde install location.

Not the install prefix, but the subdir:

        case 'e':
            if (strcmp("exe", type) == 0)
                return prefix() + QLatin1String("bin/");
            break;

instead of using BIN_INSTALL_DIR from config.h. 
Could be instead:

// small helper function

Use a text editor to change the locale settings in kdeglobals,
I've just tried 
  Country=en
  Language=en_US
and restart all KDE processes (esp. logout, login).
You'll find this file usually under the installed directory
in Kontact\share\config (e.g. c:\Program 
Files\Kontact\share\config\kdeglobals).

Thanks for the question, we'll add this to the wiki page (and the readme)
and the next generation installers.

Just a side hint, md5sum is really outdated,
it is quite easy to create two files that are different,
but have the same md5sum. For Background and entertainment see
