Thanks. No need to apologize. I am totally happy using open source solutions and would not have it any other way. Slight correction - no one in that thread got Qalculate with GUI working on openSUSE 11.2 KDE. He converted a DEB package, but the Qalculate menus don't work correctly with that solution.

Sorry you had trouble, but that is sometimes how it is when using free software.  I looked through that thread, and someone clearly got it working on SUSE.  I am also surprised that QT3 and KDE3 development packages are not readily available in SUSE, but then I do not use SUSE.

Just an FYI, I was not able to easily find QT3 libs for openSUSE KDE4, so I gave up on trying to compile it for my system.
And the plasmoid has a more limited GUI that doesn't suit my needs.
Here's a related discussion:

   You should be able to compile the latest release of qalculate-kde
   against kde3 libs.  There has been some discussion about porting
   qalculate to QT4 and KDE4, but I think any end result of that will
   be a long way off yet.  Another option is a new qalculate plasmoid:

   I hear that the plasmoid will be included in a KDE4 release in the
   near future.

       Thanks for your communication. I'm an end user who has been
       trying to
       use Qalculate with GUI on openSUSE 11.2 KDE amd64. No luck.Any
       chance
       of getting a package for that platform? Thanks

           After a long period of little activity, Qalcualte! has had a
           flurry of
           development in the last few months!

           I wonder what the preferred mode of communication is for
           interested
           parties: email list or forums?  I will continue to monitor
           both.  I am
           bcc'ing a few of you that have emailed me directly in the
           last few
           months to remind you there is a list if you would like to
           use it.  I
           personally think an email list is a more user-friendly means
           of group
           communication.

           Anyway, as you may have noticed, there has been a recent
           release and the
           development sources have been migrated from CVS to Git.  If
           you would
           like to contribute to Qalculate, now is a great time to do
           so!  I
           suggest that you first submit a patch to the sourceforge project
           tracker.  If all looks good, I will be happy to give you
           access to Git
           so that you can push patches directly.

           Regards,
           Jonathan
