Description Virgil Nisly 2005-01-18 19:16:10 UTC
file: /kdenetwork/doc/kget/index.docbook     
Menu reference: +Options->Use animation, +Options->Use sound, +Options->auto  
paste mode, +Options->drop target. Needs entire settings menu.  
Needs configuration dialog help. Screenshots don't comply with kermik window  
decor... and use kermik for widget style-otherwise they're great.

Comment 2 Rohan Dhruva 2007-03-17 18:18:41 UTC
Attaching a patch to index.docbook . I have changed the language a bit, to make it more suited to documentation. All the menu entries were already added, and I will be updating the screenshots too, as soon as possible. I guess this fixes the bug ?

Unfortunately, these update will never be visible for the user... KDE 4 KGet 
will have a completely new userinterface, thus also a new user doc. See 

You need to commit these changes to the 3.5 branch if possible.

Comment 12 Francis Giannaros 2007-03-19 13:42:47 UTC
Yeah, but I think for the moment we're committing against kde 4 for all docs and then backporting if we get an unfreeze for a 3.5.x stable. Awesome stuff on kget though :P
