Kommute 0.24

A KDE file sharing application using the anonymous file sharing network MUTE
Kommute is a KDE file sharing application using the anonymous file sharing network MUTE.

Kommute provides easy search-and-download functionality while also protecting your privacy.


Download the latest MUTE "Unix Sources". The file is called something like MUTE_fileSharing-xxx_UnixSource.tar.gz, where xxx is the version number. Next unpack the downloaded file like this:

tar -xvzf MUTE_fileSharing-0.4.1_UnixSource.tar.gz

The directory it creates is something like MUTE_fileSharing-xxx_UnixSource. For simplicity we will refer to the MUTE_fileSharing-xxx_UnixSource dir as the MUTE_TMP directory. MUTE_TMP should now contain the MUTE and minorGems directories and the cleanSrc and runToBuild scripts.

Compile MUTE

Now follow the MUTE instructions to compile the text based interface. This involves using the runToBuild script like this:

cd MUTE_fileSharing-0.4.1_UnixSource

Downloading the Kommute sources

Now that you have built MUTE and it's libraries, download the Kommute sources into the MUTE_TMP directory. Next unpack the downloaded file like this:

tar -xvzf kommute-0.1.tar.gz

Compile and install Kommute

You should now have a MUTE_TMP/kommute directory. Now it's time to compile and install Kommute:

cd kommute
make install

run Kommute

We have now installed Kommute. To start the application just type kommute:
