Current snapshots, dictionary files and tools needed to make modifications can be found on the kvoctrain homepage.

You can find precompiled binaries as rpm packages for the SuSE distribution (of almost all KDE apps): LinuKS: SuSE Linux KDE Service.

Another place for precompiled packages is Linuxberg.

2.2 Requirements

In order to successfully compile kvoctrain, you need the KDE libraries as well as the Qt C++ library. All required libraries can be found on

kvoctrain is tested with KDE 1.1.2 and Qt 1.44 as well as KDE 2.0 and QT 2.2.3.

2.3 Compilation and installation

In order to compile and install kvoctrain on your system, type the following in the base directory of the kvoctrain distribution:

% ./configure
% make
% su
% make install    
% make distclean

If you have both QT1.x and QT2.x libraries installed, you must set the according environment variable before starting the install procedure in order to use the correct one. The same might apply if you also have both versions of KDE.

Here is an example how to do this with a bash shell:

  export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt2
  export KDEDIR=/opt/kde2

Since kvoctrain uses autoconf you should have not trouble compiling it. Should you run into problems please report them to the the author ewald at
