Is anyone interested in participating in a technical meeting with other

I did that years ago and this is how we came up with various shared

on other things to attend.

PSA: how to prepare apps for non-Plasma X-based shells and their app panels

Hi,

quick heads-up for anyone maintaining applications which also target non-
Plasma shells (X-based, no issue with wayland-based systems):

TL;DR Make sure to have "StartupWMClass=myapp" in the (main) application
desktop file if both WM_CLASS properties of the application window do _not_
match in lowercased version the basename of the application desktop file.
This enables non-Plasma shells map the application windows to application
menu entries (e.g. on the panel)

Your (Qt/KF-based) application should also properly integrate with non-Plasma
shells?

Craft recipes with more than one target

Hi Hannah,

I have a question about whether craft is capable of doing something. In my quest to build Mac craft recipes for building KStars, I have made a number of recipes. One set of them though, seems a little silly. I had to make one recipe for building indiserver, one for making indiserver 3rdParty, and one for each of the Indi driver libraries (there are 10 of them) which are dependencies of the indiserver 3rdParty build. Each recipe is fairly easy to write since they are almost identical.

GSoC Ideas page

Hi all, tonight I've moved the project headings which were empty of ideas
from the 2019 page. I pasted them into the end of last year's Ideas page
[1] in case some of you (choqok, kopete, kdevelop, kgpg, kwin, peruse,
plasma, wikitolearn) are going to add ideas late and want those headers
back. I added all the relevant information I could find before opening up
the page to ideas; I should have alphabetized them first!

They are alphabetized them now [2]. Better late than never.

A few ideas still have no mentors listed; please get that done now.

KDE's release script not functional on stable openSUSE

Hi Jonathan,
The releaseme tools require ruby 2.3 while openSUSE 42.3 depends on 2.1.
And it lacks multiple ruby version support (no RVM).
After forcibly switching to ruby 2.3 or 2.4 openSUSE stops being functional
because yast (core admin tool) depends on ruby 2.1.
Releaseme worked *great* but I had to roll back to 2.1, making the OS again
not capable to develop KDE software releases I work on.

Troubles with icon themes

Hello KDE developers,

I wonder if someone can help me work out what is going on here.

I have build some KDE applications (konsole and okular) from source using kdesrc-build, using QT5 version 5.11.3 also built from sources. The applications build and run, but do not load the icons used in the UI. I have the following lines in ~/.config/kdeglobals:

and running strace on the application reveals that it is finding and crawling the oxygen icon theme directories.

After update (Debian 8 => Debian 9) KDE messes up all desktop icons

Hi list!

I use KDE since years and had almost no problem. Until now... :(

A couple of weeks ago I updates my PC from Debian 8 to Debian 9.
Now I have KDE 5.28.0-1 from Debian repositories.

I works relative OK, but every couple of day, when I start my PC and log
in, all desktop icons are messed up on both monitors and I have to
reorder them or copy the file
.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc from a backup and login
again.

I set up KDE NOT to sort icons.

Have someone an idea what can I do to solve the problem?

Thanks a lot

QT version not supported on older systems

Hi Hannah,

I ran into an issue when trying to build a dmg for KStars last week. I build it on a 10.11 El Capitan machine because it is a bit older and the packages that are built on that will work on 10.11 - 10.14 machines. Until we can finish the recipes that I was writing over the last couple of months to get craft totally building KStars’s required programs for Mac, we still rely on home-brew for a bunch of it. So for now, I cannot build those dependencies on a newer machine or we will be giving up all support for older machines.

Cache of .rc files / KXMLGui?

Hi,

I am working on .rc files used by KXMLGUI on Kate originally build with kdesrc-build and installed
in a directory in my home directory which is separeted from the system-wide KDE installation.

Now, even after system restart, when I start /usr/bin/kate, some of the menu changes of the
development version appear in the menu. Is there a kind of menu cache that has gotten affected? If
yes, can it be cleared?

From our testing everything appears to be operating correctly.

CI system disruption

Hi all,

Due to a massive translation change which took place in the last 24
hours, the CI system is currently in the process of rebuilding the
whole of KDE for all the platforms it covers (both branch sets)

This is a process that has already been underway for several hours,
and at this stage is expected to take several more. Normal CI service
will unfortunately be unavailable until this completes.

Unfortunately, as a matter of bad timing, the network card in one of
the main CI builders has also glitched and as a consequence is now
intermittent from time to time.

Craft 2018.12

Hi everyone,

As you might have seen I'm trying to prepare Qt 5.12.0 on Craft master.
Things are quite unstable so I created a 2018.12 branch.
The cache and the binaryfactory builds are all based on that branch.
So if you want to be productive use that branch, if you want to fix stuff for binaryfactory, use that branch.

I know that stable branches never worked perfectly with Craft but I try to keep things a stable as I can manage.

Happy Crafting and a happy new year

How to kdesrc-build a specific release?

Hello,

Sorry for cross-posting, but 10 days after posting this on the 'KDE Frameworks & Development' forum I've had no response so trying again here:

I have a quick question about kdesrc-build. Can I use it to build a specific KDE release/tag, or at least a consistent stable release? The branch-group stable-kf5-qt5 seems to use bleeding edge source code. The 'tag' option seems to need to be specified separately for each module.

Review request: plasma-pass

Hi folks,

back in May I wrote a Plasma applet that serves as a GUI frontend for the pass
password manager [0]. I blogged about it [1], but then somewhat forgot to make
a release etc. Recently I started getting some emails from packagers where to
get a tarballs so I think it's time to get some translations in and start
doing official releases. Thus I'd like to ask for a review for inclusion in
extragear.

The way pass works is it has a directory in which each password is stored in a
PGP-encrypted file, the name of the file is the name of the password.

Contributing to KDE is hard because of its build architecture

Please, don't take it as a rant, because I got over my frustraction a
week ago, and just writing it in the hope to point out something that
other developers might not see.

I'm not using KDE myself (i3wm here), but 2 weeks ago I stepped into my
never-ending journey of trying to use KMail, failed it (of course,
filled bug-reports along the way), and then figured "Okay, I'm a
developer — why wouldn't I just go fix the app".

And then I got into a trouble: building KMail. I have most recent stable
KDE, but upstream KMail requires its dependencies to be also built from
upstream.

Building KDE (phonon-vlc) fails

Hi,

please forgive my ignorance. It has been ages since I last built KDE from
sources.

Using kdesrc-build, the phonon-vlc package fails on cmake with the following
error:
-- Checking for module 'libvlc'
-- Found libvlc, version 3.0.4
CMake Error at cmake/FindLIBVLC.cmake:106 (message):
Could not find LibVLC

Found, but not found? Maybe it is looking for a different version?

libvlc-dev is installed on Kubuntu 18.04.

Any idea on what I am missing here?

Missing newline check

Why is krazy still checking for newlines at the end of files? Modern tools
don't seem to get tripped up by this.

Kleopatra devel

Hello,

I would like to help with development with the Kleopatra/GPG4win project.

Would there be someone available for mentoring as this is the first time
I get involved in a KDE project.

Thank You!

Contributing

Hi everyone,
I got an university assignment to contribute to open source game project.I
was wandering if anyone could recommend me any KDE game project that needs
improving or refer me to someone I could talk directly about this.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. sorry if this isn't right place for this, I am new here

KIO slave-socket shortcut - does it exist?

KIO works.

My current level of understanding is that apps ask klauncher/kdeinit for a
KIO slave if they need one. Then either kdeinit spawns a new slave process,
or there is already an idle slave and it is reused. Idle slaves kill
themselves after a couple of minutes if no request is coming in.
Communication between the slave and the app happens via a socket, usually
to find in /run/user/$UID.

The question is if, or rather when, it is possible to shortcut this
process. Do slaves, especially idle ones, accept commands issued by third
programs via these sockets?

Commitfilter

Hello,

I still receive commit messages from commitfilter. How can I cancel that since
<a href="https://commitfilter.kde.org" title="https://commitfilter.kde.org">https://commitfilter.kde.org</a> does not work anymore.

Time formats / LC_TIME challenge for 4-digit year support

Hello,
The need: 4-digit year support for short date formats to avoid issues like
"10/11/12" dates.

This is just my initial conclusion from for the Qt date format issue:

<a href="https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-59382?focusedCommentId=436861&amp;page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-436861" title="https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-59382?focusedCommentId=436861&amp;page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-436861">https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-59382?focusedCommentId=436861&amp;page...</a>
lt;dr: KF5 context: KCallendarSystem is part of the old APIs and the only
code I found related to LC_TIME.

So I've not found any common code KDE app can use instead of hard coding
some internal logic in order to support non-Plasma environments and/or
non-global settings.

Transitioning CI builds of all non-Frameworks from Qt 5.9

Hi all,

I've been informed by the PIM developers that they would like to bump
the dependency of the Qt version they use, from Qt 5.9 which it's on
currently, to Qt 5.10.

As a consequence, due to many KDE projects using PIM libraries, their
dependency on Qt will also be effectively bumped.

Mockup Design Assets for KDE

Hey y'all.

(posting this to two mailing lists as I'm a bit confused which is most useful)

Do we have an equivalent of this for KDE?

<a href="https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups-resources" title="https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups-resources">https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups-resources</a>

I was debating just winging it in Qt Designer for a little bit but something
like the above allows people without Qt Designer to use other tools like
Pencil (<a href="https://pencil.evolus.vn/" title="https://pencil.evolus.vn/">https://pencil.evolus.vn/</a> + <a href="https://github.com/evolus/pencil" title="https://github.com/evolus/pencil">https://github.com/evolus/pencil</a>) for
making mockups and design.

Also, do we have a place to submit mockups for application design and ideas
for KDE?

Rename terminal/terminal tabs

Hey guys/gals,

I'm sure you've been asked this countless times but is there an effective
way to name terminals or terminal tabs?

I have tried added the following to . bashrc

set-title(){
ORIG=$PS1
TITLE="\e]2;$@\a"
PS1=${ORIG}${TITLE}
}

Then set title by: Kali> set-title "new terminal title"

The only issue with this is after I name a new terminal and copy and paste
a string into the terminal it behaves strangely and the text wraps around
and ultimately can't execute the function.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Mike
