Please ask your questions to the mailing list.
And read the past mails in the list (at least two months back) to see if your question is already answered.
Also, check the wiki to see the install instructions.
Said that, i will not reply any question posted here as a comment.
Sorry, im very busy to reply in all places.
As a result of my bad luck, my development machines died in this year (and the end of the 2009). That is the reason for the 0.9.3 release delay.
I have managed to make an ubuntu package (.deb) for ubuntu 10.04 amd64. This package is not perfect, and maybe it misses some dependencies. I want to note that i have no experience in making .deb packages, it is made using an automatic builder.
Said that, i can release the package to the wild.
You can read the changelog to see what’s new.
After installing the .deb, install the mysql server/client as needed ( if multiple POS terminals are going to use a single database, only install mysql server on one computer, and mysql client on all). And then you can create the database using the file included in the package, installed at /usr/share/kde4/apps/lemon/lemon_mysql.sql . Run the script as described in the wiki. If you updated lemonpos, then you may want to update your database, instead of running lemnon_mysq.sql, run the fix script if you update from version 0.9.2 or 0.9.1.
There are two PDF documents installed at /usr/share/doc/lemonpos/ on two folders, one for english and other for spanish.
If you got an error when installing the package, see the error detail, maybe some dependencies are not satisfied.
The dependencies for the package are:
LemonPOS has a new home.
Also, there is a new release, the 0.9.2, that was not announced here.
The new site was also announced by Guillaume on his blog that is aggregated on planetkde, this brings a new package of the latest release, this time for archlinux. Thanks realitygaps for packaging, it is found on the AUR Repository:
This also revives an old controversy about the name of the project. And I think its time to post about the name here.
The origin of the name for the POS is the fruit which is the main regional product of my state (Colima, México), specially of the Tecomán area…
“THE CAPITAL WORLD OF THE MEXICAN LEMON”
One of the typical fruits of Colima is Lemon, citric brought from Europe, but it is registered botanically as Mexican Lemon. With few more then 19,000 hectares, Colima State occupies the first place in its production. It has kept this relevance since the end of the XIXth century when the Comala Municipality and Tecomán already exported it monthly to San Francisco, California. In the fifties the citricultors of Tecomán Valley signed a contract with Golden Citrus Juices Inc of Florida, in order that the lemon juice and essential oil were sold to them, multiplying for it the packing and industrialization plants. They make good use of this fruit, from leaf oil is obtained, from the skin jam is made and pectins are obtained and certainly the juice, of which diverse uses are given.
I have created a couple of documents.
One quick tasks document, one page, most important task for a vendor.
The other is a shortcut keys for lemon and squeeze. For the shorkeys, i have changed them because some of them did not worked, at least in my system… it was a weird problem, i choose for example a CTRL-P and it was assignated Alt-( ..
Also i have made some changes to the code, it seems this fixed a crash -the weird one- , and other things. These changes are on the SVN in the branch “PERSA”.
I have uploaded the pdf files to the webpage, links can be found here, at the wiki.
Recently I added trac, there you can post tickets for bugs or feature requests, or submit enhancements.
The link for trac is here .
you can also see the roadmap and the timeline for the project.
For those not subscribed to the mailing list, i have sent a patch for lemonpos SVN revision 285. Also you can see the list archive here
I was curious about lemonpos around the web, so i ask google. It was a surprise for me to find a lemonpos0.6.1 package for opensuse at rmp pbone. It was known that (k)ubuntu already added lemonpos to their universe repo (even for jaunty).
Now, im working on new features, wait a 0.7 version soon.
In the next days I will release lemon POS 0.6, it will get new features and bug fixes.
Any way, the SVN last revision is the Release Candidate for 0.6.
Now, Im just polishing it…
So, dont forget to check here and the kde-apps project page for download it.
