klira iconWelcome!

Welcome to Klira homepage. I would like to thank you for visiting this site and for your interest in my app.

klira iconWhat is Klira?

This app is an audio converter for KDE. It lets you convert to and from various audio file formats (at the moment: mp3, Ogg and wav), mantaining, when possible, all the informations attached to those files (title, author and so on). Its interface is thought as a wizard (a serie of pages navigable through back-forward buttons), so it should be quite simple to use, or so I hope.

klira iconHelp needed

The program is not finished: it is (quite) usable for basic converting, but it lacks some advanced options for file formats and sometimes the tag reading or writing does not work (namely when reading tag from an Ogg file). If you want use it for quick and easy file converting it will work fine, if you look for an advanced audio conversion suite, well it's a bit early (look at the version number!).

The project is still very young. Have you got suggestions, patches, wishes, bug reports and so on? Make me know, I will listen and try to help. You can post a message here:

klira iconInstallation notes

Klira relies on GStreamer and Taglib (and quite obviously on KDE 3.3/QT 3.3.3 even if it should compile on KDE 3.0 and following), so if you want to compile it you have to install them first. Do not worry, though, they should be already installed in any fairly modern GNU/Linux system (just see you have installed their devel packages also). You can check if they are installed simply with:

Make also sure that you hava installed GStreamer plugins and created a registry (launch gst-register).

After being assured of libraries dependencies, you can compile and install klira with the usual:
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
make install
