Need help regarding heading into the Okular Feature: 388450

Hello devs,

I have spent the past three days in heading into this feature request [1]
regarding scrolling the annotations along with the scrollbar and I have
been finding out how to unfix the position of the annotation window that
remains fixed to its position while scrolling the pageview.
I'm trying to get an idea from the annotations that remains glued to the
pageview and do scroll with the scrollbar and hence applying the same
approach ( and a bit of the similar code too) in order to achieve this on
the annotation window.
But now the problem is I'm confused inside the large codebase and I

Kcalc maintainers/reviewers?

Hello all,

I have submitted two patches[1] on phabricator for the Kcalc and I am
not sure who to add as a reviewer.

The first one was added last year october added Evan Teran as approver
but I have not got any feedback yet.

Any hints or review is deeply appericiated!

language ("C", "CXX", and "CUDA" were supported previously).

kdiff3 status

Just got the code moved to KDE playground. The code builds under kf5/qt 5
without kde4support. Contextual menu plug-in for dolphin functions as
expected. Code base has been fully ported but not all features have been
tested after conversions. Two way merging is fully operational. Reversed
sorting no longer sorts twice to achieve this. There was never any need for it
to do so. Fixed a memory leak present since .91. Caused by a call to new whose
return was never even assigned to a variable.

Why does kdelibs4support/src/kio/kfilemetadatawidget still exist?

Hi!
Looking at lxr.kde.org
<https://lxr.kde.org/ident?_i=KFileMetaDataWidget> it seems like dolphin
is the only "real" client of KFileMetaDataWidget. Dolphin is not using
it because of
#ifndef HAVE_BALOO
    m_metaDataWidget = new KFileMetaDataWidget(parent);
#else
    m_metaDataWidget = new Baloo::FileMetaDataWidget(parent);
#endif

(How is a clause like the one above called?)
So, what might be the reasons for KFileMetaDataWidget's existence in
kdelibs4support?

Cheers,
Michael

How to temporarily change KConfig-data for a unit test?

Hi!

Currently I'm working on baloo-widgets. For a unit test I need to
temporarily change KConfig data.

My approach would be like this:

initTestCase()

    KConfig config("baloofileinformationrc", KConfig::NoGlobals);
    KConfigGroup settings = config.group("Show");

        set everything to true here.

Revert the changes incleanupTestCase();

How is this done most efficiently and without messing too much with
baloofileinformationrc?

Cheers,

Michael

Ring-KDE in kdereview

Hello, this I hereby announce that Ring-KDE, a secure communication client for
the GNU Ring / IETF SIP protocol, is attempting to move to Extragear (from
the playground). Below is a detailed email, but there is a video and screenshot
gallery that should give you a good enough idea if you don't have time to read.

## What is Ring KDE 3.0

Ring-KDE is a software phone and multimedia platform based on the GNU Ring
network. It is the successor to SFLPhone-KDE and a full rewrite of Ring-KDE 2.0
(that was just a rebranded SFLPhone).

KCM fonts

Greetings from Munich!

I have a proposal for adding an easy mode to font configuration kcm module:

The user should be given a choice of few rendering options presented by a preview image. The image should be generated “on the fly” using a separately selected font family and point size.

With this we would like to upstream the functionality of a tool we introduced during the LiMux project to make the transition easier for users, who where uses to the heavily hinted font rendering of 90's windows desktops.

What would be the platform to make the proposal?

such setting.

Elisa Music Player is in kdereview

Hello,

Elisa is now in kdereview and aiming for extragear/multimedia. We may (in agreement with the module maintainer) move later to the Multimedia KDE Applications module.

It is a music player written with qml and a few KDE frameworks. It is primarily intended to integrate with baloo but can also index music on its own and open arbitrary files from command line or a file browser.

We have worked on a vision to help clarify the what our intentions are:

Elisa is a music player developed by the KDE community that strives to be simple and nice to use.

Framework testing

Hi @all,

First of all I like to introduce myself. My name is Marijo I'm 26 years old and from Germany. My programming skills are limited to PHP until now but I would like to contribute to KDE in the near future. So far so good.

At the moment I work on some frameworks like KIO and baloo-widgets and encountered some problems. My first patch on Phabricator was easy going because it touched Dolphin - a stand alone application as you all know.

I posted my question already on Google+ and Mykola Krachkovsky was so kind to help Mr but unfortunately I didn't get it.

KDE doesn't start after upgrade to Fedora 27

I have two systems that were recently upgraded from Fedora 26 to 27
using DNF system-upgrade. Both were successfully running a KDE desktop
for several generations previously, including on F26. In both cases,
after the upgrade, starting KDE showed the splash screen and then
a blank screen with only a pointer cursor. The keyboard and mouse
worked but the screen remained blank. Both systems are set to start
in systemd's multi-user mode; KDE is started with the startx command.

One of the systems is a 32-bit laptop with little local content.

Babe project - Legal feedback

Hi,everyone

I'd like to discuss something with the community, and maybe get some legal
input:

As some of you might already know I'm working on a open online platform to
share music information between users, such as public playlists, comments
on tracks and on the playback progress like soundcloud, share popular music
suggestions, metadata, and discovery of new music from another users with
integration with YouTube and Spotify etc...

Re: Adding application to KDE and getting image of current

The link that gives a hint on what needs to be done is under the "Incubated Projects" section, I've expected it under "Incubation Process".

Adding application to KDE and getting image of current cursor under wayland

Hi Folks,

I've got two questions related to KDE which you could eventually answer:
1. Is there a process for adding applications to the KDE family or do you always start writing applications specifically for KDE?
2. Is there a way to get an image of the current mouse cursor under KWin Wayland? I'm able to get screenshots under Wayland but the screenshots have to be requested via DBus call and when you request a screenshot with mouse cursor, it is already part of the screenshot.

Thanks in advance!

Need enlightenment on bug 318998; Add option to exit after printing

Hello, I'm working on a bug in okular

clear understanding of the bug. Here is my question:

1. What does the issue actually mean - adding an option to automatically
exit with
the exit code and message after acknowledging the print dialog when launched
with --print parameter or adding a separate parameter option as
--print_and_exit that do the same? Or is it something different? Confuse
between improving an existing parameter or adding a new parameter for the
same.

Baloo is not dead, it just smells a little funny

Hi!

Let me introduce myself first. When I started contributing to KDE with
the beginning of this year this was the status:

* No experience in C++ at all
* Wtr coding: No experience in collaboration and the technologies involved
* No experience in many other things
<https://phabricator.kde.org/T7116#122877>
* Good javascript knowledge
* Hobby developer

since then:

* arcanist hater (that's reciprocal)

That did not keep me from being active: 14 commits this month.

To the point. Baloo:
I think baloo is fantastic!

Using KCharts/KDiagram vs Qt Chart

Hi,

I was seeing the beautiful graphs shown by Qt in a blogpost about Qt Chart.

In the same time, I've seen graphs within KDE Apps (such as KMyMoney) which
are not so eye-candy. I was wondering: now that Qt Chart was opensourced, what
is the benefit of using the KDE API versus the Qt one? Is there something that
can be done so that charts look nicer in our KDE apps?

Thx,
Olivier

KWalletManager improvement

Hey,

I want to improve the kwalletmanager gui so that it can also store other
passwords (to be more like a KeyPass for instance).

I see that there are two backend repos: KWallet and KSecret.
With the KSecret API I could add data as attribute (for instance the
corresponding login, url, ...) But not with KWallet one.

Is KWalletManager compatible with KSecret? What backend is there by default on
a Plasma-Desktop environment?

Any hints about the way forward?

Thx
Olivier

Is it bad manners to refactor other people's code?

Hi!

Currently I'm working on some code I couldn't understand until I split
some long functions into smaller parts.

As I couldn't find anything about the size-of-a-function topic in the
KDE or Qt guide lines I consider this as a matter of personal taste.

I don't want to step on anybody's toes, so my question is: Should I
submit the refactored code as a review request or - now that I
understand what is going on - weave my changes into the original code?
And what do you think about this in general?

Michael

Dependent review requests

Hi!

When I do

git checkout -b A origin/master

(changes)

git checkout -b B A

(changes)

git checkout A

arc diff

git checkout B

arc diff

Will phabricator show the relation of A and B? Is that a reasonable
approach, anyway?

Mailing lists and attachments

I'm new on GNOME mailing lists (and mailman in general) and I made a post
where I included an attachment. The attachment (a 21 kB PNG image) did not
show up in my post:
<a href="https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-app-devel-list/2018-January/msg00019.html" title="https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-app-devel-list/2018-January/msg00019.html">https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-app-devel-list/2018-January/msg00019...</a>

Is it not possible to include small attachments? Did I do it wrong, or
should I have uploaded it to a service and included a link instead? What's
the normal procedure?

I realize this is a noob question that I should be able to find somewhere,
but I'm sorry to say that I have not been able to do so.

Thanks

Quick and dirty packaging

Hello all,

I'm looking for some guidance or suggestions about some way to build a
KDE application (more precisely a personal fork of okular) so that
someone else with a reasonably similar system (x86_64 Linux) can use it
without having to install extra packages, or otherwise mess with their
installation.

I've tried two ways so far but hit the wall in both cases:

1. Doing a static build (by including the line "cmake-options
-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=FALSE") in my kdesrc-buildrc file.

qca build failed

Any ideas ?

Also this is reproductible on Ubuntu and Fedora.

kdesu - console output and password keeping

Hey all,

We've recently integrated kdesu into hotspot [1] to be able to record profile
data as root. This is required to get access to some "advanced" performance
counters and trace points, most notably the sched:sched_switch tracepoint
required for off-CPU profiling.

Now, my colleague originally used kdesudo which doesn't seem to be alive (?)
upstream. I've seen there's some bzr repo that the kubuntu people seem to use.
But in KDE proper, only kdesu is available.

Running login/logout scripts in Plasma

Hi

I've configured "systemsettings5" to run a login and logout script. I was running perfectly until quite recently and now neither of them run.
I logged a bug against "systemsettings5" which i think is incorrect - can anyone point me to the correct module to log this bug against?

regards

Ian

A new tier1 for icontheme.rcc handling

Hi everyone.

Only some few of you will be aware of KIconThemes ability to load binary
icon themes automagically.

<a href="https://cgit.kde.org/kiconthemes.git/tree/src/kicontheme.cpp#n48" title="https://cgit.kde.org/kiconthemes.git/tree/src/kicontheme.cpp#n48">https://cgit.kde.org/kiconthemes.git/tree/src/kicontheme.cpp#n48</a>

The code looks for a icontheme.rcc and sets it as default theme.

On Windows and Mac we rely on that code as it is more feasible to
install that one
file with an single application installer.

KDE 5 screen size issue

Hi,

I recently upgraded my AWS Ubuntu system from v14.04 to v16.04. The
upgrade also updated my KDE from version 4.x (not sure of the exact
version) to version 5.18.0 . The problem that resulted is that the
screen geometry setting via xrandr is not being applied correctly.
I've attached a screen shot for clarity.

Notice how the bottom panel floats pretty high; and how the wallpaper
does not cover the entire screen, even though the setting is to scale.
I can make the screen size smaller but I still have problems.

Rebase of kopete branch and push it to master

Hi!

From the following ticket <a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/T7642" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/T7642">https://phabricator.kde.org/T7642</a> I was
suggested to open discussion on kde-core-devel list. Sending this email
also to kopete-devel as it is relevant for Kopete development.

Currently in Kopete git repository <a href="https://cgit.kde.org/kopete.git/" title="https://cgit.kde.org/kopete.git/">https://cgit.kde.org/kopete.git/</a> is a
branch kf5 which contains port of Kopete to KF5. That branch was created
3 years ago as part of GSoC was used as "staging area". Some patches
there are incomplete and later were "fixed & cherry-picked" into master
branch.

Kamoso in KDE Applications

Hey,
I'd like to move it there. It's in extragear/multimedia now and I keep
forgetting to release as often as I should.

But the application is working, maintained and developed.

Thoughts?

KDE and Google Summer of Code 2018

Hello GSoC mentors, and teams supporting mentors,

TL;DR: Fill out <a href="https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2018/Ideas;" title="https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2018/Ideas;">https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2018/Ideas;</a> read
<a href="https://community.kde.org/GSoC" title="https://community.kde.org/GSoC">https://community.kde.org/GSoC</a>. Now.

Every year, we've asked for more time to get ramped up for GSoC, and so now
is the time for organizations to apply[1]. We have begun to write our
application, and that means that our Ideas page needs to be filled NOW,
because that is the prime consideration for the GSoC team once the Org
Applications deadline has passed.

The quality of our ideas and the guidance they give our students are the
most important part of our application.

New KDE application

Hi,

A very happy new year to all. Hope you guys are doing good. :)

Me and Rahul (CC'ed; IRC nick - rahulch) came up with an idea for a
new application in KDE, and we were hoping to get an opinion on it.

The central idea behind the app will be to manage the expenses of a
group of users. As a user, you can create one or more groups, add
members to them, and add entries for expenses for a given group. You
can also check the outstanding balances and choose to settle-up with one
or more members.

Qt Data Visualization?

Hello,

kbackup in kdereview

Hi all,

I'd like to announce kbackup - A Backup program with an easy to use User Interface

KBackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files,
whereby it uses an easy to use directory tree to select the things to back up.

The program was designed to be very simple in its use so that it can be used by non-computer experts.

It can do full- and incremental backups.

The storage format is the well known TAR format, whereby the data is still stored in compressed format (bzip2 or gzip).

The backup can be put onto a local directory (mounted device, etc.) but also on a remote URL

Brieftasche kaputt

Hallo!

Ich weiß nicht, was passiert ist, doch plötzlich ist der KWallet-Dienst nicht
mehr verfügbar. Wenn ich mich in Plasma einloggen, bekomme ich Fenster, die
Paßwörter abfragen. Und zwar eins für KMail und eins für den
Nextcloud-desktop-client.

Kwallet broken

Hi

I don't know, what has happened, but suddenly Kwallet is no longer available.
When I log in to plasma on my desktop, I get two windows, each asking me to
enter a password - one for KMail and one for the Nextcloud-desktop-client.
(I'm writing this on my laptop.)

There is this error message: "Couldn't open wallet:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply; Message recipient disconnected
disconnected from message bus without replying"

When I open the KWalletManager, the wallet is empty.

What happened, and how to fix this?

Bye
Volker
