Hi Felix,

First thanks for the patch. It compiles neatly for cvs HEAD.
Now for the test. It said kxkb was not enabled for me but I use keyboard 
layouts. Maybe I don't know what kxkb is.
I cannot test further as I don't really understand what it does nor how to use 
That means that you should also amend the corresponding doc, that would be 
really good.
1) Keyboard Layout should have an accel key in the Settings dialog like 
&Keyboard Layout for ex. I can also fix that.
2) The config elements should now be in the kvoctrain.kcfg file but I can fix 
that later.

So if you could send me a patch for the doc, that'll enable me to test further 
while updating the doc. I know this is no fun... Or send me a text about how 
to use the new setting and I'll include it in the doc.

KVocTrain is unmaintained. It was unmaintained for KDE 3.3 and we kept it 
because Peter, the KWordQuiz author, fixed bugs on it and some people 
contributed patches.
If you would like to maintain it, you are more than welcome. KDE 3.4 will be 
out beginning 2005 with freeze probably at the end of November. If you think 
you can clean the code (port to xmlGUI mainly) for KDE 3.4, that would be a 
very nice objective. If you have other ideas, you're more than welcome.
If there is no maintainer it could stay for 3.4 but not for 4.0.

Practically, if you want to maintain it, just write a rough TODO on what you 
intend to work for 3.4 and after another patch I'll get you CVS access.

Cheers and thanks a lot,
