Packagers

Plan

  1. remove gnome dependencies in phonon-gstreamer (need to split them)
  2. check for new/removed dependencies
  3. check for new/removed sub modules (we have a script for that)
    1. we should probably add some replaces
  4. update package descriptions (we have a script for that)
  5. recheck kde-meta
  6. review build logs
  7. check packages which are not part of KDE SC but depend on it or Qt
  8. check packages which depends on splitted libraries (eg. libksane, libkdcraw, libkexiv2,...)

Packages

kdebindings-python

  • enable python3 only support? (some plasmoid will not work)

kdebase-workspace

  • GoogleGadgets (Needed to build plasma scriptengine for Google Gadgets)
  • libgps (GPS support for geolocation)
  • XMMS (Support for XMMS in the Now Playing data engine)

kdeedu-stars

  • XPlanet (support for xplanet)

kdegames

  • qvoronoi (Part of the qhull package, needed for the irregular grid from the Palapeli Slicer Collection)

kdenetwork

  • XMMS (Used by the Kopete nowlistening plugin to support the XMMS player)
  • libmeanwhile (Required for the Kopete Meanwhile protocol)
  • msiLBC (Needed to build Google Talk libjingle voice call support with iLBC codec)

Build fails for:

kdebindings-korundum: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=287057 kdenetwork: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=28420676

Users

Using the kde-unstable repository

  1. kde-unstable is based upon testing. Therefore, you need to enable the repositories in the following order: kde-unstable, testing, core, extra, community-testing, community.
  2. To update from a previous KDE installation, run: pacman -Syu or pacman -Sy kde-unstable/kde
  3. If you don't have KDE installed, you might have difficulties to install it by using groups (limitation of pacman)
  4. subscribe and read arch-dev-public
  5. report packaging bugs to our bugtracker (don't forget to mention you are using kde-unstable)

Known issues

  • If any problem occurs try a new user or (re)move ~/.kde4 /tmp/kde-* /var/tmp/kdecache-*

(Packaging) Changes from 4.7

Broken packages which are not part of KDE SC
