Asked by Gideon Walker on 2011-12-13

I would like to get a new option added so that kalarm can start minimized.

Can I contribute code changes? If so, how do I do this?

If you run:

gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/kalarm.desktop

Do you see a populated file? If so, change the line which starts with:

Exec=

To add your own option

I am asking about the kalarm source code.

Your answer does not seem to mention that.

Then I suggest you report a bug and/or suggest it on:

Hi XXX,

If you enable the "source" repository, you can check out a copy of the source code with

apt-get source NAMEOFPACKAGE

then you can get the build dependencies (the bits you need to compile the program with):

apt-get build-dep NAMEOFPACKAGE

you can then modify and rebuild the package as outlined here:

You will need to be familiar with the language used in the program, which, if I recall, is C++, using the QT4 libraries.

thanks

I will go to brainstorm.
