QuickDC

QuickDC is a UNIX/Linux client for Neo-Modus's Direct Connect filesharing network. It resembles the DC++ client for Win32 and supports most of the same extended features such as multiple hubs and bz2 compressed browse lists.

          Actually, QuickDC checks if the file ~/.quickdc/conf.xml exists,
          if it doesn't it will create it using a default configuration.
          Why it doesn't work for you is probably due to other factors.
          Please check your system settings (permissions, disk space, is
          your HOME environment variable set?), and please send me
          the console output when you start up QuickDC.

          I'm not sure what might be wrong, but check the following:
          If your home directory doesn't exist, QuickDC will issue a
          warning. If the ~/.quickdc/ subdir cannot be created it will
          issue a warning and exit. If the ~/.quickdc/conf.xml file
          doesn't exist or looks bad it will issue a warning and load
          defaults (and write it back to the file).

          Why is there NO documentation with this program?
          I was able to download, compile, and install this program with no problems. However, when I try to start it up, it complains about a missing "~/.quickdc/conf.xml" and exits. I dug through all the sources for how to create this configuration file to no avail. There is no example conf.xml anywhere to be found, either. I even tried to create a zero-length file by just doing a "touch ~/.quickdc/conf.xml", but once again, the program refuses to start. How in the world can anyone honestly be expected to use this program if there is no provision for it to start without an arcane and NONEXISTENT configuration file? Would it really be too much to ask for there to be a decent example conf.xml either in the source tree or on the SourceForge Project page? This program is probably quite useful...IF you have this configuration file handy. Where is it? And, more importantly, WHY can't QUICKDC start up without it and create one of its own once you use its GUI to set it up? Am I just thick, or has anyone else run into this problem?
