KDE and Conan

Hello world,

As mentioned in <a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/T8484#153248" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/T8484#153248">https://phabricator.kde.org/T8484#153248</a> I have some
experience with Conan and CMake and I'd like to give back to the KDE
community.

For this I've reserved some time at Akademy as a BoF on *Monday 13 August,
Room 121 from 10:30 till 12:30* for a Conan workshop/discussion. The room
is currently free for the rest of the day, so we could extend if necessary.

If anyone is interested, please join.

vnc client keyboard mapping

Hi,

I don't manage to have my local client keyboard mapping when I connect
to vnc server (x11vnc) in a kde plasma system.

Are there some settings needed in order to make it recognized ?

Is it supported in KDE plasma (that works fine in other systems.)

S.Ancelot

KGlobalAccel is only Plasma centric?

Hello everyone,

in case someone can answer, there is a user that reported Latte Dock global
shortcuts arent working at alternative environments e.g. Gnome, Budgie

the bug report is at: <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=396572" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=396572">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=396572</a>

Latte supports global shortcuts through KGlobalAccel,
do you know if that framework is only Plasma centric?

Not building the latest KDE on Debian Stable

Hello,

Trying to build KDE on Debian Stable. I'm stuck on these difficulties :

* I had to build Qt5 myself ('cos Debian's is outdated). Which Qt5 version should I use ? I used :

git clone git://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git
cd qt5
git checkout 5.9
perl init-repository
./configure --prefix=/mnt/data2/kde/qt5git -opensource -release -nomake tests -nomake examples -confirm-license -no-gtk -dbus -no-separate-debug-info -xcb -system-xcb -qpa xcb -release -force-debug-info -reduce-relocations -optimized-qmake -no-gstreamer
make install

Is it correct ?

PSA: KDE CI: How-To for stable branch switches being picked up

Hi KDE project maintainers,

tl;dr <a href="https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Continuous_Integration_System" title="https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Continuous_Integration_System">https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Continuous_Integration_System</a>
now tells how to make sure KDE CI picks up your new "stable" branch

Some days ago I found that a few products on KDE CI in the "Extragear" section
had not seen builds of their stable branches for some months (I remember at
least Krita & Kexi), despite being under good development.

Reason was that for those products a needed step had not been done after the
"stable" branches were switched to new ones:
manually triggering an initial build with the new branch
(needed with current CI

Arch Linux Update Notifier for KDE

Hey all I wanted to help generate awareness for an Update Notifier plasmoid
for Arch Linux and possibly create an online blog post to help people know
about it.

For those who don't know Arch Linux has you manually upgrade packages through
the terminal.

My Plasmoid is a front end for it.

You can checkout my github page for screenshots and more information.

Current Features:

* change refresh interval
* turn version numbers on and off
* show upgrade in konsole or yakauke
* AUR support
* Custom Icon Support

This affects not just

strange behavior of KCookieServer

Hello to everyone,
in my ongoing attempt to integrate Konqueror and QWebEngine, I'm still

cookies to KCookieServer by hand which doesn't seem happen when using
Konqueror with either KHTML or KWebKitPart.

I am proud to announce the third CMake 3.12 release candidate.
<a href="https://cmake.org/download/" title="https://cmake.org/download/">https://cmake.org/download/</a>

The first two 3.12.0 release candidates included a change to allow
the target_link_libraries command to modify targets created outside
the current directory. This has been reverted in rc3 due to
problems with visibility of the linked targets.

Latte Dock in string freeze

Latte updated its stable branch in order to prepare the last beta before

Akademy Config Workshop

Dear KDE community,

as you all know Akademy 2018 is approaching fast.

I'll host a Config Workshop [0] on Tuesday 14th August, Room 125:
two sessions from 10:30-12:30, then lunch together and a last session
14:00-15:00.

I hope we will have interactive and interesting discussions about
configuration-related topics and tools like KConfig, KConfig XT and
kconf_update.

Limiting who can create v${NUMBER}.${NUMBER}.${NUMBER} tags in KDE Applications git repos

Hi, would anyone be against limiting who can create
v${NUMBER}.${NUMBER}.${NUMBER}
i.e. tags that look like our release tags to members of the release team for
the KDE Applications git repositories?

Rationale: Some distros build from git tags so creating a "release looking
tag" is for them like "using the release tarball" and we already limit who can
upload release tarballs to the download.kde.org so it would be a similar
restriction but for the git side.

Is there a way to set digitalclock plasmoid font size?

Devs,

I have been trying to find a way to reduce the digital clock plasmoid font
size. In:

I have tried changing:

font.pixelSize: 1024

to

font.pixelSize: 512

hoping to 1/2 the font size, but no joy.

Binary Factory & Windows CI builds temporarily offline

Hi everyone,

Due to some issues with MSVC we are currently encountering, the Binary
Factory is currently unable to successfully complete Windows builds.
As part of diagnosing these, reinstallation of MSVC has been required,
which has required Windows CI builds to be disabled temporarily.

It is likely that CI coverage will be restored sometime in the next 24
hours, however Binary Factory capability will take longer.

Unfortunately due to the nature of these failures it is possible we
will not be able to restore full service until Microsoft releases the
3rd preview release of Visual Studio 15.

Removing code from kdeexamples dir

From what I can see, the kdeexamples repo is mostly unmaintained (the
last useful commit dates back to 2014), the master branch only
contains KDE 4 code and the frameworks-scratch branch is just as
ancient.

I propose the following:
1. Create a branch (or tag) called master-unmaintained, master-old or
whatever you prefer, pointing to the current HEAD
2. Obliterate everything from the repo, leaving only a
README.unmaintained file, reading:

Version Error while building KDE frameworks and Qt5

Hello Everyone.
For building Elisa from kdesrc-build, I am building the dependencies from
here:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source/Install_the_dependencies" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source/Install_the_dependencies">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source/Instal...</a>

But this is installing version 5.9.5 for Qt and version 5.44 for all kde
frameworks. Elisa requires versions 5.10.0 and 5.45 respectively. How can I
install these versions? I would be really grateful if someone can help me
out since I have spent a lot of time building the dependencies but its
resulting in errors while building elisa.

Introduction

Hello, I am Bhavesh(username:bp_) from India and a newbie to open source. I
am a college student and really want to contribute. Mainly, I program in

found KDE to be the perfect place to start my open source journey and I am
willing to learn any new technologies/languages/frameworks which will be
required to contribute.

The VDG

Hello team,

Given recent events and decisions (
<a href="https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/plasma-devel/2018-June/086117.html" title="https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/plasma-devel/2018-June/086117.html">https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/plasma-devel/2018-June/086117.html</a>) I feel
it important to bring more to the table.

Martin’s decision is an unfortunate one. Martin has been with KDE through
thick-and -hin and has earned the respect and love from many members in the
community. He has also earned my respect.

I can’t help but think that the VDG is a tremendously influential group
within KDE. I personally take this as a huge responsibility and a call to
do even better in our approach.

Dolphin bug, help needed

Hello,
I'm trying to fix a bug in Dolphin. It basically doesn't show any
information in columns like Artist, Image size etc. in details view.

After finding what is missing I wanted to see an example way to retrieve
that metadata. I decided to look at the code of Information Panel which
works correctly. After seeking some help in the IRC channel I decided to
dive into the code. Information Panel uses Baloo widgets to fill that
information. KFileMetada is meant to be used as a fallback compile time
option. And I was told thay KFileMetadata has been deprecated.

Queries regarding Akademy 2018

Hello,

I am a GSoC 2018 student at KDE and have applied for the developer account.

I want to attend Akademy at Vienna, Austria this year and have submitted a
travel reimbursement request for the same.

1. Do I need to fill any RSVP form to let KDE know that I am willing to
attend Akademy 2018 if my travel request is approved?

2. It says the deadline for the second round of travel request is May 31,
so do I need to wait for May 31 in order to know the approved status of my
request?

Hello all,

I am a GSoC 2018 student under KDE Community and I want to attend Akademy
2018 to be held in Vienna, Austria from 11-17 August. I have checked the

(March 12).

Is it still possible to attend Akademy during GSoC period (final mentor
evaluation phase) with travel reimbursement?

Flatpak packaging for stable releases

Hello,

I really appreciate the work that has gone into flatpak and the excellent
support for it in KDE and the KDE infrastructure for it.

I have an hard time understanding what is the best way to distribute a stable
release through flatpak.

I am not sure if the KDE flatpak repositories are supposed to also be used for
stable releases.

I have seen a few KDE applications being also hosted on flathub. Is this the
way to go ?

bugs.kde.org: kio vs frameworks-kio vs kfile etc.

Howdy folks,

Right now we have a lot of KIO bugs scattered around in various places:
- kio
- frameworks-kio
- kfile

Should we mark kio and kfile as not accepting new bugs, add some more components to frameworks-kio, consolidate everything there, and then eventually remove kio and kfile?

Status of Primary Selection Protocol

Hi,

what is the status of integrating your "Primary Selection Protocol"
RFC-v1 patch into wayland-protocols upstream [1]?

The background is I was trying KDE Plasma/Wayland v5.12 on
Debian/buster AMD64 and am used to have support for
middle-mouse-button pasting (primary selection) in my graphical
environment (see errata-list in [2] and bug-report in [3])

As far as I have understood the KDE people wait for an upstream
solution whereas GNOME did its own implementation of primary selection
support [6].

What are your plans?

Thanks for your feedback in advance.

Kind regards,

P.S.: R

Trouble with tool bars

My first KDE4 to KF5 port has gone well and the app now compiles and runs
without any warning messages. :) However, I am now trying to improve some
things.

There's a stack of diffs...

...waiting to be reviewed.

Hi all!

Please help baloo to (hopefully) improve and have a look at D11753 and
its ancestors.

Thanks in advance,

Michael

CMake 3.11.0 available for download

I am proud to announce that CMake 3.11.0 is now available for download at:

Some of the more significant changes in CMake 3.11 are:

KDE in prefix install

So after leaving neon to use a newer ubuntu (needed it for my hardware), I
have started building KDE myself again and tried setting my tradition install
in /opt and building with kdesrc-build.

I ran into a number of issues, many minor things I have already fixed by
patches. But there were two bigger issues with dbus-1 and polkit.

First kscreen doesn't work because it can't find its backends. While not
easily found, I did eventually find suggestions online to fix this by adding a
file in /etc/dbus-1/session.d with the prefix service dir.

AMOR maintenance

Hi guys,

I recently opened an AMOR diff review and ask about the maintainer on irc
but no one knows who is maintaining and I think the project is orphan right
now. (correct me if I am wrong)

here is my patch: <a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/D11475" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/D11475">https://phabricator.kde.org/D11475</a>

I have several themes for AMOR and a lot of ideas like include a theme
manager (like another kde applications)

so if you guys think it is a good idea, I am able to maintain the project.
Just let me know what should I do.

btw, thanks for all the good work on KDE framework.

major memory leak

I couldn't find a bug ticket service for kde plasma development, so
apologies if this is the wrong place.

I'm running into a major memory leak running kde plasma. After a few hours
the desktop environment consume about 20GB of RAM and continues to consume
another 15GB of swap space. After that my operating system has to kill off
applications to make space. I added a couple snapshots to show you that
killing off the plasmashell reclaims the memory used.

I'm running a thinkpad t570 with two monitors daisy chained to my laptop.
