kio-stash is in KDE Review

Hi!

I had made the kio-stash ioslave last year as part of my GSoC 2016
Project. Now that most of the changes which I wished to make in
Dolphin relevant to the ioslave are part of master, I wish to ship the
ioslave soon.

The project is now in KDE review and is awaiting feedback. The link
for the same can be found here:
<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/R247:0f4dc333ac8469b36d1b3a1cedd0a6672ac907b8" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/R247:0f4dc333ac8469b36d1b3a1cedd0a6672ac907b8">https://phabricator.kde.org/R247:0f4dc333ac8469b36d1b3a1cedd0a6672ac907b8</a>

The source of the project can be found here: <a href="https://cgit.kde.org/kio-stash.git/" title="https://cgit.kde.org/kio-stash.git/">https://cgit.kde.org/kio-stash.git/</a>

Thanks.

projects api alpha

I finally got annoyed with the obscenely large xml file we had for
projects and wrote a RESTful api to replace it.

<a href="https://projects.kde.org/api/" title="https://projects.kde.org/api/">https://projects.kde.org/api/</a>
<a href="https://cgit.kde.org/sysadmin/projects-api.git/" title="https://cgit.kde.org/sysadmin/projects-api.git/">https://cgit.kde.org/sysadmin/projects-api.git/</a>

Usage example
<a href="https://cgit.kde.org/releaseme.git/commit?id=d5ae8f9b3a56b0521e84b6e5955faecb6e6099c0" title="https://cgit.kde.org/releaseme.git/commit?id=d5ae8f9b3a56b0521e84b6e5955faecb6e6099c0">https://cgit.kde.org/releaseme.git/commit?id=d5ae8f9b3a56b0521e84b6e5955...</a>

I'll probably finalize it next week unless someone has handy
suggestions for improvement.

Plasmoid C++ QML again ..and again

Back I Am
I have a QML plasmoid
It uses a c++ library as a backend (c++ QML plugin)
It works fine under plasmoidviewer
When i install it, I can see it in Add Widgets
It won't let itself drag/drop to the desktop
It keeps saying
Constructing a KPluginInfo object from old style JSON.

Qml/Plasma icon coloring issue

Hi all,

We are currently porting parts of the Kdenlive UI to Qml, and I have one
issue with the Breeze icons when used in a Qml scene embedded in a
QQuickWidget.

We enforce a color theme in our app using:

qApp->setPalette(palette());
QGuiApplication::setPalette(plt);

When used in QWidgets, everything works fine and the icon color
automatically adjust to the theme, using the text color. However, icons
used in Qml do not adjust their color WHEN the system icon theme is
different than Breeze.

Requiem for Pure C++ plasmoid, and QML plugin... again :S

I want to make a plasmoid that essentially read an xml of bookmark,
displaythem in form of button and execute them once you clikc a button

In Pure c++ it would take me 1 or 2 class maybe

Now with QML I have to

1)Make 1 QMLPlugin in c++

2)Make 1 qml code

3)Make a second QMLPlugin in C++

4)Pass argument from 1) to 2) then back from 2) to 3)

5)Pass information from 2 to 1 to update the Abstract model ....

Currently I am stucked at step 3

Questions Regarding KDE's conformity of the StatusNotifierItem Protocol

Hello,

Recently I have been implementing The StatusNotifierItem[1] protocol for the
sway window manager. I have been using KDE programs to test my implementation
because KDE has stated that it uses the protocol. However, it seems that instead
of using the 'org.freedesktop.*" namespace that is defined by the protocol, KDE
uses "org.kde.*" for every aspect of the protocol. Why do KDE programs use this
instead of the official specification?

Thank you,
Calvin Lee

Officially revoking support for 2.4.0

Hi! (Heavy traffic today:)

there are bug reports like <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332791" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332791">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332791</a> still coming in and
my usual respond now is that "we" do not support Krusader 2.4.0 anymore.

Because I actually cannot decide this on my own / can only speak for myself, I would like
to have some sort of confirmation that "we", as a support team, do not provide coverage
for bugs specific to 2.4.0 anymore.
If anybody thinks otherwise, please respond. Otherwise I'll take it as granted.

Cheers everybody

Deploy Weblate/Pootle system for translation

Dear developers,

I am from Chinese localization team. Recently, we meet some new contributors and they are not so skilled with SVN. This let me to think how we can make translation process easier.

Mozilla has its own online translation system. LibreOffice uses Pootle. openSUSE project uses Weblate. A lot of other projects use Transifex or Crowdin. These system are well designed. Anyone with basic computer knowledge can start to contribute. All discussions are open. It enable different opinions to display and avoid arbitrary.

However, our SVN is stopping people from contributing.

kdereview - xdg-desktop-portal-kde

Hi,

I would like to request review of xdg-desktop-portal-kde [1]. We would like to
make it part of Plasma releases, see [2].

What is xdg-desktop-portal-kde:
It's a KDE implementation of Flatpak portals backend [3], currently with
support of AppChooser, FileChooser, Notification and Print portals.

One mentioned issue on plasma-devel mailing list was usage of Qt's private
print API. This will most likely go away if I find out it's useless, otherwise
I'll have to keep it as it's used to set CUPS properties which are not
available to the outside world.

Will code for mentorship (I need a mentor for GSoC)

Hello KDE devs,

I am a brazillian student of CS, interested in working on Kopete in GSoC. I
was also interested last year, sent a few patches [1] and wrote two nice
proposals [2][3]. Problem being there was no mentor available for me and my
proposals were rejected. The ideas for which I proposed are listed again
this year, and I will be proposing for them again.

I am very familiar to C++ and Qt, having sent other small patches to
KWindowSystem [1] and worked on LXQt for more than a year as a core
developer [4].

KIPI Plugins and Python

Currently, KIPI Plugins are written in C++. It's great, fast, but a bit

How about reimplementing it in Python?

Commit notifications

Hi,

I want to do some changes to what git commit notifications I get and I

server has been shut down some time go already.

What is the new place for this?

All your answers about Where to put documentation?

I'm often being asked about where to put documentation. I just wrote the final
guide about this.

On <a href="https://community.kde.org" title="https://community.kde.org">https://community.kde.org</a>, we have since last year a Guide and HowTos page
[1], which lists all KDE tutorial and resources.

There is a chapter about Quality and Documentation [2] in which you'll find
documentation about where to document things. I just wrote for Aditya this
page:

Some questions

.

I had some queries and would like to have some help:

* What are some simple issues I can start working on?

* How to reduce build time while tweaking single source files? I tried
'make' inside a subfolder I am working, which took much less, but I would
like to reduce it further.

* How to set up the development environment on my system? I prefer Emacs
(Spacemacs, TBH), but can't enable library based completion.

Can anyone that cares about appdata please fix all these files?

I'd do it but i've no clue how it works.

Suggestion to Remove KFloppy and hold back K3b

I recommend KFloppy be removed from Applications releases. It
couldn't find my floppy drive and when I hacked the code to tell it
where to look it depended on an external tool fdformat which didn't
work anyway.

and above.

* CMake now supports "CUDA" as a first-class language.

NOW is the time to fill in the Ideas page for GSoC! Application deadline 9 Feb.

Hello GSoC mentors, and teams supporting mentors,

We've asked for more time to get ramped up for GSoC, and so the
calendar has been moved back to early February. However, that means
that our Ideas page needs to be filled NOW, so that it can be taken
into consideration once the Org Applications are all in. The quality
of our ideas and the guidance they give our students are the most
important part of our application.

Contribution help

Hello KDE devs,

I'm a senior year CS student and a KDE user since good ol' KDE3 times. I'm
fluent in C++ (used CMAKE and boost in school projects) and somewhat
familiar with Qt.

Though wanted to contribute (and had already been subscribed to this list),
I couldn't have the spare time. Now I have a bit spare time and I would
like to contribute KDE. I think I can start from a bug of powerdevil I've
reported [1].

Guidance for contributing to kde

Hi I'm appearing for gsoc 2017. Being a newbie I don't know where to start
could you please guide me on how to contribute to the KDE projects. I'm
familiar with c++ and will be learning qt.
Thanks

Preferred way for an application to inhibit suspend on KDE

Hi,

I'm writing an application that needs to prevent the system from
suspending. I strive to support every GNU/Linux desktops, and I'm a bit
stuck with KDE. I didn't find any obvious way to do that.

On GNOME and related, I would use the D-Bus service
'org.gnome.SessionManager'. On XFCE, it would be
'org.xfce.SessionManager'. For other environments that lack a Session
Manager, I can still rely on 'org.freedesktop.PowerManagement'.

However I found none of these on KDE.

Custom proxy using KIO::get

Hi,

I though it might be useful for the klinkstatus link checker application to allow finding broken links of Tor hidden services.

For that it would be necessary to override system wide proxy configuration. I tried to find other kde applications that offer this possibility and found konversation which uses QNetworkProxy::setApplicationProxy .

However, klinkstatus uses KIO::get, which ignore QNetworkProxy::setApplicationProxy and seems to look only at kioslaverc config file.
