@daybeezho
extract the zip somewhere and read the readme.txt

@Bill Oswald - Tulsa
this is a Java6 Application... it should run on Windows, Linux and Mac if Java6 is installed... I'm testing on Windows and Linux (Ubuntu) so I'm not absolute sure about Mac...

If you have Java6 installed... you could launch 'GroupCommentr-xxx.jar' on any Platform on the console with:

java -jar GroupCommentr-xxx.jar

Normally a double click should do it... at least on Windows...

sorry for the late reply... I could not see your comments on 'recent changes'

It works on Mac, but there's no copy/paste option in the comment box, so you have to write the comment code by your own.

Hi Giuseppe,

thanks for checking GroupCommentr on Mac!
You're right there is no context menu on the comment box. You can copy&paste the comment with <Apple>+C (for copy) and <Apple>+V (for paste). That should do it...

If your're on Linux or Windows <Ctrl>+C and <Ctrl>+V should work...

I'm implementing the missing context menu for one of the next releases.

problems to copy and past with a Mac:
Giuseppe say right, it's impossible copy&paste on Mac OS.
+C and +V don't solve the problem.

For those people who say that in Mac it's impossible copy&paste: just copy from the browser the words you need > then paste on a .txt file > copy again > then paste without any problems on GroupCommentr.

this is an impressive software. thank you really so much!

@Uccio
thanks for finding this workaround!

if you copy from the browser and try to paste in GroupCommentr with <Apple>+V nothing happens? nothing at all?

Giuseppe Pollara [deleted] says:

@dittma_d
Nothing at all. The only way it works is the warkaround uccio found.

Keep improve this marvellous software, it saves a lot of time!

Thanks and bye.

Bravo.

you have the copy&paste problem only once for every group... GroupCommentr will save the comment for later use...

It works flawlessly on the Mac... simply paste pressing Ctrl+V instead of cmd+V. I forgot it is a Linux java app...

Is the application able to save groups comment/award codes? Some time ago I used an application (GratePic) which automatically put the corresponding comment code when selecting a photo from a group pool. Unfortunately that application did not work anymore after a while and I abandoned it, but it was really great and I saved a lot of time with that.

carrmp says:

Hi dittma, just tried your program on Windows 7 and while its great, I find that it opens the windows very small so that each window requires resizing to see the pictures. (which is a real pain).

I see above that you do not intend to fix bugs anymore, As you have released this as GPL3, is there any chance of you posting the source code on sourceforge (as is required by GPL3)

thanks for a great program anyway.

dittma_d says:

Hi carrmp, if you're interested in coding some features and/or fix some bugs you can find the code in the subversion repository on sourceforge.

It's not easy to find so here's a link to the explanation page:
sourceforge.net/scm/?type=svn&group_id=28 0039

Everybody is allowed to check out the source and start coding. All you need is subversion, maven2 and JDK 6... go for it!

The only thing you can not do: you can not commit to the repository.
So you have two options:
1. You build a fork of GroupCommentr and build your own project.
2. You can send me your patches, I will check your code and commit the code for you until I think you can check in on your own.

dittma_d says:

@carrmp
btw I did some unfinished changes on /trunk so you may be want to patch /tags/1.0-alpha2
On the other hand: There is already code to do the window position and resizing stuff on /trunk... maybe you can patch 1.0-alpha2 with the window position/resize code on /trunk

Sissy☺ (Mostly OFF) says:

Fantastic tool. Congratulations for the great work!
But why do not work in the my own groups?
I can to give award only in the groups, where I am just member.
In the all my 90 groups, where I am admin it do not work and write this message:
"Could not load thumbnail:
You don't have a permission to view this pool''

What is this? I don't have permission in the my own groups?
Are not private groups.
What to do?

Ivan Naurholm. thanks for more than 200.000 views says:

Thanks for a great app, this totally made my life so much easier - uses it under mac - only found one incident, where I got a "wrong signature ... " error trying to add a fave to a picture.

Again thanks ever so much.

I do not have any chance developing something like this, but as inspiration should you ever feel another version pressing on.
1) size of windows when you open them
2) In general (don't know if it's you or FlickrAPI) the app uses Crtl instead of CMD(Apple) button for commands.
3) If possible - shortcutkeys would be nice.

But again - this is the best app I ever stumbled over in Flickr - thanks

In some groups the icon and image don't have permission to display . Is there a reason for this .?.This makes it impossible to award them from the app.
