works fine here. what value does freq have? what errors do
you get?

SCUM did have a signal/slot mechanism, but it turned out to
be overkill.

in the upcoming release SCUM will evolve from an attempt to
provide the 'standard' SC view classes on linux to a
standalone, cross-platform server application. i agree it
was a questionable move to strive for compatibility with the
existing SC view classes in some areas, while doing things
differently in others. SCUM's heading towards total
incompatibility, so be patient :)

there's no roadmap. work on SCUM is demand-driven, i.e. i
implement things if and when i need them, and most of the
time i don't need a gui. contributions (new view classes,
documentation) are welcome, though ...
