Thanks for the latest release.

I've only noticed one tiny thing in Test 29. I get the following output:

./Scribe
Screen: 1024 x 768 @ 16 bpp
Pixel24Size=4
i.Scribe v1.86 (Test29, Linux v2.4, Release)

And the icon in KDE's system tray and task bar is messed up; its colours are wrong and it has several barcode-like vertical lines on it.

Thanks for your hard work!

Still suffering from menus that won't respond to mouse clicks.

Oh, I know what the busted icons will be. The pixel24size printout is just a debugging thing for the moment, it tells me what size a 24bit pixel is according to X11.

Most implementations say 4, but at least one I know of says 3.

I'll look into the mouse click thing today.

I re-installed Mandrake without any KDE support whatsoever, and I get the following when I run Scribe 29:

[mike@pc-00065 Scribe]$ ./Scribe
Screen: 1024 x 768 @ 16 bpp
Pixel24Size=4
sh: line 1: kde-config: command not found
_GetKdePaths: Didn't get string back from kde-config.
i.Scribe v1.86 (Test29, Linux v2.4, Release)
sh: line 1: kde-config: command not found
_GetKdePaths: Didn't get string back from kde-config.
sh: line 1: kde-config: command not found
_GetKdePaths: Didn't get string back from kde-config.
sh: line 1: kde-config: command not found
_GetKdePaths: Didn't get string back from kde-config.

No real problem, just warnings I think. It doesn't seem to affect Scribe at all so far.

It'll mean that it's using default face/point size for the fonts.

I'm going to add gnome font config support sometime in the next month. And those warnings will go away.
