HOWTO: Install a new kcm module?

Post by agro » Mon, 30 Jun 2003 14:02:36

Hi folks,
with kdevelop 3 alpha 4 ( on CVS) I created a new *Control Center Module*.
Added a simple tabbed dialog,
Then I ..
./configure --prefix=/usr
su make install-ed

Everything went fine. But I do not see my tabbed dialog in the KDE control
centre at all.

Can someone please explain all the steps to be taken to install a module?

Also, *make install* created a directory at:

*my_kcm_project* is not listed on the KDE Control Center. How do I make a
new category of modules and how do I make a category information page?

1. Howto install new locale (was: Howto convert UTF-8 to lower/uppercase)

I have a machine with redhat 6.2.
The version of locale is 2.1.3
This version has (at least at this machine)
no locale de_DE.utf8 or any other *.utf8
But I need to do conversion of UTF-8 chars (lower<->upper).
Is it possible to install a new locale? (I want to avoid to install new version of locale if possible.)
I took the directory de_DE.utf8 from a machine
with version 2.2.2, "locale -a" did show me de_DE.utf8
but if I call setlocale() in my program the behaviour is like de_DE.
Any ideas?
