Plasma 5.17 beta Discover system updates regression

Since upgrading to plasma 5.16.90 from the Arch kde-unstable repo, Discover is
checking for system updates by default and I cannot find where to disable this
behaviour. I've checked in Autostart and Background Services in System
Settings -> Startup and Shutdown and in system tray settings.

I had system updates disabled in 5.16.5 by clearing the checkbox for updates
in System Tray Settings -> General -> Extra Items but that checkbox is no
longer there.

I had packagekit installed from previous trials so uninstalled it.

KFusion style

Hi,

A while back I asked for some guidance in getting the Fusion style to inherit KStyle.

prevent raising windows?

Hi,

how can I prevent windows from raising above other windows when such windows
bring up dialog boxes while such windows are partly below other windows? I
don't want to have windows covered by unrelated windows just because the other
window has brought up a dialog box.

notification button label inconsistent

Hi everybody,

KDE Plasma: 5.16.4
KDE Frameworks: 5.61.0
Qt: 5.13.0
Audacious: 3.10.1

I'm using audacious with the default notification plugin. On song change the
notification has two buttons, Pause and Next.
<a href="https://i.postimg.cc/YqJZfNwD/screenshot-20190920-200854.png" title="https://i.postimg.cc/YqJZfNwD/screenshot-20190920-200854.png">https://i.postimg.cc/YqJZfNwD/screenshot-20190920-200854.png</a>

But sometime (idk when, Number of Lines??) the Labeling is switched to Next
and Pause. But the Function stays the same. So, clicking on Pause plays the
next song and vice versa.

Does anyone have the same problem and know a solution? Notification Plugin
works well with XFCE.

Manually Compiling GNOME (without JHBuild) - How?

Hello,

I'm interested on compiling GNOME manually, without using JHBuild tool.
I use Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS) on my system.

Here are my requirements:

1) I'd like minimize dependencies installed using my system's package
manager. That is, only Xorg and Wayland libraries are installed from
package manager, and every other dependencies from GTK to GNOME Shell
and GNOME session are compiled from official release tarball. Compiling
GNOME applications is optional.

2) I need to install compiled GNOME side by side with system version of
GNOME.

Binary Factory & CI System Maintenance

Hi all,

As part of changes to help improve the capacity, capability and
security of the Binary Factory and CI system, i'm going to be
performing a rebuild of several of the physical hosts responsible for
performing builds on the CI system.

Following these changes, signing operations for Flatpak and Android
builds will have been shifted away from the machines responsible for
handling the actual builds, and the system will have an additional
machine added to handle builds.

This will also pave the way for the build process for Snaps being
brought to the Binary Factory (although there are other

Cmake and dbus daemon on the system bus

Hello,
not sure if this is the right place to ask. I'm working on this new
feature: <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410902" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410902">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410902</a>. In the current
implementation I used KAuth, but it seems to me a dbus daemon would be a
better fit for this case. The daemon must be run as root, and should
therefore probably use the systemBus. I read the tutorials related to dbus
in the techbase pages, but those seem more oriented to the sessionBus.

I already implemented the communication, which seems to work properly.

Retirement of notes.kde.org

Good evening all,

Currently we're in the situation where the software we use to run
notes.kde.org is both difficult to maintain, as well as support (for
things like document confidentiality for various groups within KDE).

We'd therefore like to retire the service, replacing it with the
Realtime Text Editor within Nextcloud (share.kde.org).

KF6 Sprint

Hi,

as you might have seen in David's summary of the KF6 BoF at Akademy (https://
mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-frameworks-devel/2019-September/093298.html),
there's the idea to have a KF6 sprint, along the lines of the KF5 sprint we
had in Randa a few years back, to determine what we actually want to achieve
with KF6 beyond just porting to Qt6.

If you are interested please subscribe to <a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/T11535" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/T11535">https://phabricator.kde.org/T11535</a>

Taking over maintainership of libkscreen / KScreen

Hi,

since I am the only person responsible for bigger changes to
libkscreen and KScreen over months now I propose to take over
maintainership of libkscreen / KScreen. Actually I changed the
maintainership information already in code for KScreen with
<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/D22468" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/D22468">https://phabricator.kde.org/D22468</a>,
but I remembered that there are other areas needed for official
transfer (for example bugs.kde.org default assigne and repo metadata),
so that's what this email is for.

If there are questions please let me know.

Cheers,

Taking over maintainership of the kaccounts-* repos

Hello!

At akademy we talked about the KAccounts and realized that kaccounts is
unmaintained and/or Martin is not active.

So I propose to take over maintainership of the following repositories.

- kaccounts-integration
- kaccounts-providers
- kaccounts-mobile

If you have any concerns/objections with this, let me know.

Thanks

Accessibility yellow-black

Hi there,

I really like the accessibility options a lot.
But I think it's a pity that the "high contrast" mode only has the
automatic color black and white (or vice versa).

My question:
Could it be possible to implement other color combinations in the future?
Visually impaired people can cope with very individual colors.

I'd like to suggest moving rekonq to unmaintained

Any objections?

Setting a personal default printer (without admin privileges) in GNOME

Hello,

I am looking for information on setting a personal (i.e. not
system-wide) default printer in GNOME. This is for a corporate
environment with many printers and users which usually do not have
administrative privileges.

On the command line, it is possible to set a default printer on a
per-user basis using 'lpoptions -d <Queue_Name>'. This will save the
default printer queue name to a file ~/.cups/lpoptions.

I cannot find a way to set this using a GUI in GNOME.

Konsole tab accellerators -- how to disable?

Hello!
Konsole version 19.07.90, Archlinux

I wish to disable the behaviour where holding alt causes the tab
switching accelerators showing up in Konsole, as it is causing
shortcuts inside terminal applications such as my IRC client from
working when I have too many tabs open.
I've gone thru settings and didn't see anything obvious, didn't see
anything in the shortcut assignment system (which makes sense as this
is automatically done.)

Made for a incredibly frustrating experience this morning as I
groggily tried to go thru messages only to have it keep jumping to
different tabs.

How to restore default settings on Windows?

Hi,

i already sent this request to the digiKam user mailing list, but i didn't received any answer yet. I hope someone from the kde/windows mailing list can help me.

Here the original question:

I have searched the digikam documentation and web page on how to restore default settings for digiKam on Windows. Unfortunately i couldn't find an information about that. As far as i understand, digiKam stores some settings in the rc file, which is under linux machines located under the .kde folder of the home drive.

kdump all the things!

I've made a thing that makes systemd-coredump easier to use and I for

gdb.

<a href="https://invent.kde.org/sitter/kde-coredump" title="https://invent.kde.org/sitter/kde-coredump">https://invent.kde.org/sitter/kde-coredump</a>

Proposing Quick Charts as a new framework

Hi,

I have been working on a library the past few months that provides a
QtQuick

like for
this library to be included as a Tier 1 Framework.

Current features are that it supports rendering of three different chart
types:
pie, line and bar, which can be fed from multiple types of data sources.
There
is also support for axis labels, an axis grid and a legend.

We can't properly parse standard Desktop files

Hey,
Last week I was debugging an issue where I realised that we were not
splitting properly a StringList field in a desktop file coming from
Flatpak.

I notice then that we are using a coma to split desktop files instead
of a ; as the standard requests.

The multiple values should be separated by a semicolon and the value
of the key may be optionally terminated by a semicolon. Trailing empty
strings must always be terminated with a semicolon.

Which day would you prefer? There is AGM on Monday and a daytrip on Wednesday,
while most of the Tuesday is taken by Plasma, which is where I expect most of
the people. Does Thursday sound good to you?

Licence of GCompris in ubuntu snaps

in the snap package was "Proprietary". After some search, I think it's
because it's set to "unset" in the snap package:

I can contact if nobody knows.

Unified git commit message guideline

For KWin we think about a message guideline because our current best
practice that we got used to over time is just sometimes putting tags
in square brackets at the beginning of the subject line for indicating
the location of the change in code but somebody noted having a square
bracket in the beginning leads to problems with certain git log parser
tools.

Asking around on IRC it seems we should expand the scope. Apparently
also other KDE projects could profit from a policy and some tooling
around it.

Possible to move some KF5 frameworks to invent?

Hi,

is it possible to move individual framework modules over to
invent.kde.org or will that be
done at once somewhen in the future?

Would be interested to move syntax-highlighting and ktexteditor if that
is possible.
But if that shall be done as bulk in the future I can wait ;=)

Greetings
Christoph

Taking over maintainership of Breeze GTK

Ello y'all. Considering that Breeze GTK's maintainer stepped down and I've
been doing a fair amount of work related to it (yay colorschemes for GTK3),
ngraham suggested that I should take over maintainership, and that's a pretty
good idea.

So I'll be doing that idea (taking over maintainership).

I'll probably be seeing it get a GTK4 port, as well as some other things.

Invoking "kcheckpass" from the terminal

Greetings,

I'm looking for help with debugging the kcheckpass program that is used for
validating passwords in the KDE screenlocker.

It seems to me that the best method for this would be to invoke "kcheckpass"
directly in the terminal under GDB so that its interaction with my system's
PAM module could be inspected.

The executable is available... "locate kcheckpass" leads me right to it.

Issues with Jenkins Builds

Hi all,

Recently we were affected by a regression within Jenkins, the effect
of which meant that in some circumstances builds would not be
triggered when new commits were introduced.

In addition, the views showing the list of all builds would also not
show the last successfully completed build in some circumstances.

This fault has now been worked around on build.kde.org, and rebuilds
have been initiated of a number of jobs which have been identified as
either affected or potentially affected, which unfortunately will take
the better part of the next day or so for the system to process.

System tray tooltip timeout

When you point at an application icon in system tray, it shows a tooltip with information about the application for ~5 seconds. Then the tooltip disappears.

Is it possible to configure the tooltip timeout?
