Question about KNewStuff *.knsrc files and manualy installation

For example, we have KDE Aplication program with knsrc files for
KNS3::DownloadDialog (from KHotNewStuff - KDE Framework).
Acording to documentation (
<a href="https://api.kde.org/frameworks/knewstuff/html/classKNS3_1_1DownloadDialog.html" title="https://api.kde.org/frameworks/knewstuff/html/classKNS3_1_1DownloadDialog.html">https://api.kde.org/frameworks/knewstuff/html/classKNS3_1_1DownloadDialo...</a>,
"Detailed Description") KNewStuff searchs knsrc files only in /etc/xdg
directory.
It works good for packages from repository, because in this case, if we
install knsrc files using KDE_INSTALL_CONFDIR, in package the files will be
in /etc/xdg.
But, if we build and install the program from source, we have some
problems: we could don't change CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX (/usr

Hi,

I am a student participating in the Google Code In Challenge. As a part of
my task, I am to introduce my interests to the mailing list. I have been
interested in computer science and business for the past five years and
mainly develop in Java, Swift, and Python. I first started to develop
mobile apps as a fun way to pass time. Over the years, my interest in
computer science has significantly grown and I have found more practical
uses for coding. Using my skills, I have founded a $3 million startup and
have won notable accelerator programs around the world.

Google Code-in

Hello folks, we are still very low on mentors (only 11 have signed up so
far) and tasks: about 45 at last glance.

Please get with your teams and find some more mentors, and get creative
with some tasks. Assign writing some unit tests! Get some bug reports
tested! Help kids get your application installed in Windows, Mac or Linux!

Look at <a href="https://community.kde.org/GCi" title="https://community.kde.org/GCi">https://community.kde.org/GCi</a> for guidelines and ideas.

If you have not yet subscribed to KDE-Soc-Mentor ML please do that, and

New User: Help Requested in Setting up Development Environment

I recently took up a bug related to the "user-manager" program. After
following the steps in the getting started guide, I was able to
successfully compile and install the program. Running it was a different
story, I hit a segmentation-fault error when trying to run the program
through the konsole. After setting up QtCreator and trying to guess at the
executable path, it tells me that the program quit unexpectedly. I'm trying
to find a way around this so that I can resolve the bug. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

auto QString(Builder) considered VERY HARMFUL

Hello,

Today I fixed the third or so crash in KDE software due to the following
pattern:

const auto str = someString + anotherString;

What happens is that the type of str ends up being QStringBuilder
instead of QString. The QStringBuilder is destroyed after the semicolon,
and all access to "str" produces undefined behavior.
While I'm not a particularly big fan of using auto to hide variable
types anyway, this kind of usage is just wrong and must be avoided.
Please take care.

Cheers,
Andreas

Proposal, Adopt .editorconfig in every project

Hello fellows.

In kde software we strive to be inclusive, that means that we don't enforce
a coding style in every new project, nor do we adapt to newer styles on old
software.

Google Code-in

Hi everyone,

GCi is around the corner and it is high time that we formulate a good
amount of tasks with assigned mentors to look after them. We only have 15
mentors right now and it would be great if few others in the community
could chip in as well.

Almost around 13 hours to go until the org application period ends and we
would love to see more tasks and more mentors actively participating.

I see a good start on tasks at <a href="https://community.kde.org/GCi" title="https://community.kde.org/GCi">https://community.kde.org/GCi</a>.

Fixing license header

Hello,

I have put a slightly incorrect license header at top of files. It is supposed
to be LGPL v3 or later but contains a few errors and is not matching the one
currently found on FSF site.

I am not sure if it is necessary to ask explicit permissions from all
contributors or if I can fix it directly. What is your advice ?

network connectivity with proxy

Hi,

in Knights and in LabPlot I realized recently, while being in a corporate
network behind a proxy, that the connection to public internet servers is not
possible. E.g. in Khights the connection to the FICS-server is done like

QTcpSocket* socket = new QTcpSocket(this);
socket->connectToHost(address, port);

How to properly handle the proxy settings? Reading system settings (from the
environment?) and calling QTcpSocket::setProxy() or
QNetworkProxy::setApplicationProxy() somewhere in main.cpp doesn't sound to
me like the "standard way to do this".

Google Code-in

Hello folks, GCi is much earlier this year, so we need to gather tasks NOW.

Please look over their tasks and copy some for your own project!

KDE service for mounting storage resources

Hello! For some projects I'd need some kind of "service" being able to
mount resources like SMB shares, FTP, SFTP etc... I read about KIO a bit,
but I'd need something that can be passed also to non-KIO applications.
I read the code of smb4k and it seems to do exactly what I need: using
KAuth and mounting to some specific path. But this seems a bit tied to the
specific application and only supporting SMB.

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

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

We've recently completed configuration of a new mail server which will
be replacing the current system which handles kde.org mail.

I would like to organize a BoF for Flatpak and Snap related stuff, to discuss
our support of sandboxing, plans for future and so on.

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.

Cheers,
Albert

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:

/usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.digitalclock/contents/ui/DigitalClock.qml

I have tried changing:

font.pixelSize: 1024

to

font.pixelSize: 512

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

Any idea as of why is that welcome
