Re: not good
Thank you for your reply, Shawn. I hope you didn't mind my tone too much, but I was *really* mad when I wrote the original comment (I know, you shouldn't write comments then, but ...).
As I can see from the product page, you've added a contact address for people with demo problems.
In the meantime I've fixed the problems I had with the free version by myself but I certainly will give your product another try if the need arises.
Best of luck
I was looking for a KDE free version of Quanta and this seemed to fit the bill. I've tried for one hour now to get this darned thing up - in vain ...
There's no installation documentation whatsoever. And the installation program does no sanity checking either. If the program segfaults on startup because you happen to have qt3 installed, tough. Actually you have to guess that since no meaningful error message is provided.
OK, so I removed qt3. Now it doesn't segfault any more; instead everytime I try to start this program, I get a nice message window: 'Critical error... Installation not complete'. Reinstallation doesn't fix this error.
TheKompany provides absolutely no troubleshooting help for Quanta, no contact address, no help forum.
Wait, did I day that? They *do* provide support ... for 15$ per incident.
I've got nothing against proprietary software. I'm using Opera day in day out on three platforms and am very happy with it. Because it works, because I get support, because it's a fine product. All three absent here. You want my money for that? You must be kidding ...
