Thread: Where can I find Kcoloredit?

  1. #1

    Default Where can I find Kcoloredit?

    I've tried to install a little program called Kcoloredit, a palette editor, but I can't find out how. It doesn't seem present on the repos. I have also searched on http://software.opensuse.org/find and on Packman, but I got no results.

    There is an old version inside the package "kdegraphics3-extra", but it is outdated and it doesn't have the features that I need.

    It hasn't been updated in 6 years so I'm guessing the project has been abandoned - it's unlikely it'll even compile against the new versions.

    I did manage to build it.

    A patch was necessary (to add a linker library) to build it on current openSUSE versions (even 12.2), but otherwise there were no problems.
    It's available here now:
    http://software.opensuse.org/downloa...age=kcoloredit

    I haven't really tested it, but it starts at least.

    The software search should find it soon as well, but it takes some time until new packages are added to the database...

    Thanks to both of you.

    For my needs, it does not matter if it is no longer developed, it is a really simple tool and if it let me edit palettes I don't need more bells and whistles. Anyway, for the sake of knowledge, do you know if some other similar tools exist?

    Well, it does, if you cannot use it any more because it does not build/work...

    Have you tried my package?
    It should work.

    And it is available on the software search page as well meanwhile:
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/kcoloredit

    As you don't write what your needs actually are, it's not really possible to suggest a similar tool that might suit you either.

    Yes, you are right, I was meaning "developed" as "adding new features" rather than just mantaining it

    As I said, this tool work perfectly; I just wanted to know (just for knowledge, as I stated on my previos post), if there are other standalone palette editors.

    I don't know any _standalone_ palette editors myself.

    But graphics programs like GIMP or Krita should include one:

    Depending on your needs, they might or might not do what you want though of course.
