            Skylendar 1.3 on SUSE 9.3
            Hello,

            i used all the tips from this page.

            I could compile it, create the database and skylendar started but i was unable to connect to the database.

            Are there any needs with postgres?

            line 718 in swemplan.c change from "if (pname != NULL)" to "if (pname != NULL && plan_fict_nam[ipl] != NULL)" to remedy the strcpy error. The name of the font file is skylendar.pfb that needs to be copied to ~/.fonts/. If you get Astrolist errors, the changes to that set of issues are too numerous to list here.

            Round 2
            this is the 2nd time I have tried to compile Skycalendar... i agve up two years ago afrer days/weeks of trying to figure it out. Now i'm at it again freshly armed with Ubuntu 5.04 running KDE.

            I start with

            ./configure --with-qt-dir=/usr/share/qt3 ... ok, this worked, which is farther than I got last time.

            root@apt:~/src/skylendar-1.2# make

            ...

            make[3]: Entering directory `/home/jw/src/skylendar-1.2/skylendar'

            /usr/bin/dcopidl ./astroprocess.h > astroprocess.kidl || ( rm -f astroprocess.kidl ; /bin/false )

            In line 38 : syntax error, unexpected T_EXTERN_C, expecting T_TILDE

            make[3]: *** [astroprocess.kidl] Error 1

            (insert many, many errors here)

            if I run the offending line alone....

            root@apt:~/src/skylendar-1.2/skylendar# /usr/bin/dcopidl ./astroprocess.h

            <!DOCTYPE DCOP-IDL><DCOP-IDL>

            <SOURCE>./astroprocess.h</SOURCE>

            <INCLUDE>../config.h</INCLUDE>

            <INCLUDE>astrodefs.h</INCLUDE>

            <INCLUDE>astrotransfer.h</INCLUDE>

            <INCLUDE>dcopclient.h</INCLUDE>

            <INCLUDE>dcopobject.h</INCLUDE>

            <INCLUDE>qobject.h</INCLUDE>

            <INCLUDE>qstring.h</INCLUDE>

            In line 38 : syntax error, unexpected T_EXTERN_C, expecting T_TILDE

            Now i'm stuck because I have no idea ho to fix this!!

            <from yacc.cc.h>

            00063 T_TILDE = 289,

            00068 T_EXTERN_C = 294,

            <astroprocess.h>

            38:extern "C"

            39:{

            40:# include <time.h>

            41:}

            Has anyone else had this problem?

            This is one of the more unfriendly apps I have ever tried to get running :(

            Does anyone have a compiled binary they would be willing to share?
