[08:09:13] <wjp> Darke: you run kde, right?
[08:10:46] <Darke> Yup.
[08:11:00] <wjp> I've got a bit of a problem here with it
[08:11:08] * Darke earperks.
[08:11:31] <wjp> we have installed 'kile' (kde tex editor) here on a network export
[08:11:49] <wjp> and it is still trying to locate its kileui.rc file in /usr/share/apps/something
[08:12:02] <wjp> any idea if there's any env.var to set to get it to look there too?
[08:12:16] <wjp> or is this just kile behaving badly by not looking in $(prefix) too?
[08:13:24] <Darke> *ponder* Do other apps look for their rc files in the appropriate place where you installed the 'rest' of kde into?
[08:13:39] <wjp> that's the only kde app we installed there
[08:13:46] <wjp> the rest is installed locally
[08:13:57] <wjp> (rest == rest of the kde apps)
[08:15:02] <Darke> IMO, I think it's kile misbehaving. I'll install it here to see what happens.
[08:15:24] <wjp> it would probably work if you install it to /usr
[08:15:38] <wjp> only we installed it to /sw :-)
[08:16:13] * wjp takes a peek into the kile sources, in the meantime
[08:16:15] <Darke> More then likely. *grin*
[08:16:25] <wjp> setXMLFile( "kileui.rc" );
[08:16:42] * wjp looks around on kde.org for developer docs
[08:18:37] <wjp> '...or simply the filename, which will then be assumed to be installed in the "data" resource, under a directory named like the instance.'
[08:19:11] * wjp is tempted to just recompile compile with a hardcoded /sw/share/.../kileui.rc path :-)
[08:19:16] <wjp> s/compile/kile/
[08:19:22] <wjp> (still early I guess :-) )
[08:21:25] * wjp hmms... this seems to be too advanced for the user-FAQ and too basic for the developer-FAQ :-)
[08:24:19] <wjp> ooooh! found an environment variable that seems to work
[08:24:38] <wjp> export KDEDIRS=/usr:/sw
[08:29:26] * Darke ahhs. Neat. Nice to know they thought of it. *grin*
[08:29:55] <wjp> indeed :-)
[08:30:13] <wjp> hm, maybe I'd better check if 'normal' kde apps still work with this
[08:33:13] <wjp> seems to work; good :-)
[08:33:33] * Darke yays!
[08:44:38] --> Dominus has joined #pentagram
[10:28:13] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("enough for now")
[11:12:12] * Darke wonders if there's anyway to get the make system to convert my flex file into an appropriate C/C++ one. Any idea wjp?
[11:13:35] <Darke> Or is it 'just' like a standard makefile, set a dependancy for Lexer.o, and have it's target create and compile the .cpp?
[11:17:15] <Darke> Hmm... actually I'm sure I've done this before. Wonder where I put the file.
[11:29:20] <Darke> Ahha! Got it working. Know not why it works, since I just copied&pasted the makebits from where I'd written it earlier, but it works. *grin*
