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?

Dear KDE team,

Actually, After submitting my proposal for import of educational data sets
available on the Internet project, I expected to be mailed from Mr Stefan
Gerlach with his feedback but I didn't receive anything.

I know that to select any project for this year GSoC being a Software
Engineering project and might to see my sample contributions for the
project to ensure the skills of the applicant to complete the project.

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

Add Qt Bug 66008 to errata website for 'No support for primary selection (middle-click to paste)'

Hi,

I am trying Wayland support on KDE/Plasma 5.12 on Debian/buster AMD64.
On #debian-kde IRC I got some useful links like the errata website [1].
There is "No support for primary selection (middle-click to paste)" in
this list and found [3] as a reference.
Can you add the Qt-Bug #66008 (as I have no rights for editing)?

Thanks.

Kind regards,

Trouble with tool bars

My first KDE4 to KF5 port has gone well and the app now compiles and runs

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

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.

GSoC2018 - Panel Improvement Proposal Idea

Hi KDE Devs,

For GSoC2018, as a long-term KDE user/lover, I want to make 2 important
improvements on KDE / Plasma-Workspace / Panel that will increase user
experience. By this mail, I'll just talk about the improvements without
any technical details. In the proposal, I'll tell about my plan to solve
the issues.

--------------> *Basic Information*
I always use KDE by placing the panel left and enabling auto-hide option
and as far as I see on the Internet, there are many people like me.

Hi, I have some problems compiling systemsettings

enclosed is the error log.

I need Unicode support

I think baloo is a useful toolkit for file managing. But as a Chinese, I can't bare the lack of Chinese support of baloo. So could you tell me how to support unicode file indexing or fix this issue?
thank you.

baloo needs to be notified of fuse mounts.

Hi!

In order to fix bug 390830 <https://phabricator.kde.org/T8066> (== baloo
should not index plasma-vaults) I need a notification about mounts and
unmounts of fuse.encfs filesystems (and maybe others).

I've tried to find something suitable within Solid - without success so
far. Can you give me some hints, please?

Cheers,

Michael

Would it be good if I became baloo's maintainer?

Hi!

Getting the stuff I do for baloo reviewed takes a lot of time and poking
others. That is considerably slowing me down.

I'm seriously thinking of becoming the maintainer for baloo (and maybe
baloowidgets). Then it would be easier for me to commit those patches I
consider as harmless e.g unit tests. Unless somebody else jumped in I
intended to maintain baloo eventually anyway. I would do it now(!)
mainly for practical reasons. Due to my lack of experience with c++, the
KDE way of using it and the KDE infrastructure in general I'm somewhat
reluctant.

How to improve --help message?

Options:

  -d, --device-id <deviceId>  Restrict to device id.

                              Only applies to "balooctl list"

  -s, --simulate-purge        Simulate purge command.

                

Q_ASSERT(!FalseSecurity)

Hi!

Am I getting something wrong? Or is

"Q_ASSERT(m_writeTrans);

m_writeTrans->commit();"

providing false security?

Shouldn't it better be

"Q_ASSERT(m_writeTrans);

if (m_writeTrans) {

    m_writeTrans->commit(); ?

Baloo's code is full of Q_ASSERTs that have no corresponding if-guard.

To my understanding those would slip through in release-builds. Am I wrong?

Please enlighten me,

Latte Dock and tangerine font

Today I received from RikMills that Latte was rejected from ubuntu because
it contains an OPL-licensed font (tangerine).

The discussion is at: <a href="https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/884" title="https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/884">https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/884</a>

The font is used just for a label in the configuration window to draw the
"Latte" text at the top-left corner. I thought that an alternative could
be to just screenshot the label in a png and use that one and drop totally
the tangerine font distrubution through Latte code...

Do you have any ideas what we can do for this and if this is acceptable for
OPL?

macos-like suspend to disk when the battery runs out for laptops

on a laptop running macos, when the battery is low and when the laptop is
about to power off, mac osx automatically suspends the ram on to the hard
drive, and when the next time the device boots, it restores the last state
it has saved.

I would like this implemented in kde5, it would be as easy as adding a
function from the suspend libraries to the battery dying event

sorry if this msg is a little hard to understand, I'm on meds =(

thank you

Do you know if it still exists (the article is from 2006) and did you

If you did, what did you test using it?
Did it find some bugs you would have missed without this tool?

Thanks in advance for your help,

CMake 3.11.0-rc1 is now ready for testing

I am proud to announce the first CMake 3.11 release candidate.
<a href="https://cmake.org/download/" title="https://cmake.org/download/">https://cmake.org/download/</a>

Documentation is available at:
<a href="https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.11" title="https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.11">https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.11</a>

Release notes appear below and are also published at
<a href="https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.11/release/3.11.html" title="https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.11/release/3.11.html">https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.11/release/3.11.html</a>

Some of the more significant changes in CMake 3.11 are:

* The Makefile Generators and the "Ninja" generator learned to add
compiler launcher tools along with the compiler for the "Fortran"
language ("C", "CXX", and "CUDA" were supported previously).

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
