It integrates into the KDE desktop environment
Being written in the C++ programming language and using the Qt GUI toolkit for the graphical user interface, K9copy has been designed from the ground up to be integrated into the KDE desktop environment.
Supports Linux and BSD platforms
This is a multi-platform program that supports both GNU/Linux and FreeBSD platforms, running on either 32-bit or 64-bit architectures. It is distributed as a source archive, but you can easily install it from the default software repositories of your OS.
