khtml2png errors

Works great when I disable javascript:

khtml2png2   --display :2  --width 1024  --height 768  --time 42  --disable-js  --disable-java  --disable-plugins --disable-redirect  --disable-popupkiller http://www.whatsthebigidea.com/ ./website.png

However, when I run with js:

khtml2png2   --display :2  --width 1024  --height 768  --time 42  --disable-java  --disable-plugins --disable-redirect  --disable-popupkiller http://www.whatsthebigidea.com/ ./website.png
kbuildsycoca running...
KCrash: Application 'khtml2png2' crashing...
Could not find 'drkonqi' executable.
KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly.

I suspect it has to do with the browser that khtml is using. Any suggestions.

Hi!

Are you using the latest version of khtml2png2? What OS and version of it are you using? 32 or 64 bit?

I got it working though can't seem to achieve a good integration with WordPress. Thanks for your reply though.

it needs the --nograb option
  because it tries to grab the mouse and it fails in shell
2:59 PM the --nograb forces it to ignore the mouse
  so do i mark it as completed?

<?php
$mykey_values = get_post_custom_values('web');
foreach ( $mykey_values as $key => $value ) {
$output_file = $value.".png";
echo $value." <br/ >";
if (!file_exists($output_file)){
$cmd = "khtml2png2 --display :2".
" --width 800".
" --height 600".
" --time 15".
" --disable-java".
" --disable-plugins".
" --disable-redirect".
" --disable-popupkiller".
" --nograb".
http://".$value.
" ".$output_file;


while(!file_exists($outpu
  t_file)) { sleep(1); }

echo ''.$value.' ';
}else{
echo ''.$value.' ';
}
}
?>

However, like I stated before I didn't have much luck integrating with WordPress

What's the problem? Do you want to update the png-file that khtml2png2 creates at regular intervals, or something else?
