How to test

Before sending your map to Albert , you should test it to see it has no errors. To achieve that, you have to do the following:

  • Put the map description and map image file in $XDG_DATA_HOME/share/apps/kgeography/

  • Put the flag PNG files (if any) in $XDG_DATA_HOME/share/apps/kgeography/flags/

Once that has been done you should be able of opening your map from inside KGeography.

If you don't know which is your $XDG_DATA_HOME, type qtpaths --paths HomeLocation in a shell.


Use the tool from the helper tools to check if any extra color left on the map which is not defined on the .kgm file.
