Flatpak Qt/KDE runtime

Hi,
Recently flathub started building our runtime into their systems. I
recommend using the runtimes there. I updated the wiki to reflect the
change:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak</a>

You will possibly have to remove and add again the runtime, but other
than that everything should work as usual.

Getting bugzilla entries created for your your KDE Applications application

Hi, starting with KDE Applications 17.12.0 we will be running a script that automatically creates the bugzilla version for your application.

For that to happen your application must specify its version in the cmake project call.

For more info see <a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Application_Versioning#Bugzilla_versions" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Application_Versioning#Bugzilla_versions">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Application_Versioning#B...</a>

Mouse settings not use on hot plug of new mouse

I have a dell laptop with a dell docking station.

This combination will generate hot plug events for
the mouse. But my mouse preferences are not applied
to the "new" mouse.

Is there code in PLasma that is supposed to handle this?

I can look into the problem if that helps.

How do I stop my PyQt programs canceling shutdown?

I have 2 PyQt programs that if I leave running and then tell
Plasma to shutdown will give me a notification that shutdown
has been canceled.

I'm not aware of adding code to cancel a shutdown. Do you know
where I should look to fix this?

Also after I manually close the offending app after there has been a
cancel message a further shutdown does not seem to start closing
the windows(?) that are running.

Konqueror status bar behaviour

I'm sorry to take your time with this, but I need to find a place in konqueror's sources.

I want to make a little change and I just need somebody to point me to the right place in the sources.

I need to modify the behaviour of the konqueror status bar - I'm using konqueror 4.8.4-2 on Debian.

When first launched, konqueror displays a standard status bar (snapshot1.png),
but as soon as I open a second tab (snapshot2.png),
or as soon as I press F9 and open the sidebar (snapshot3.png),
the status bar is replaced by some white strip whose colour cannot be changed and looks nothing like the sta

Failure to build kwin "Could NOT find Qt5FontDatabaseSupport"

Hello!

I'm trying to compile plasma-workspace on Linux using command:

"kdesrc-build --include-dependencies plasma-workspace"

The only thing that fails is "kwin" (and plasma-workspace itself). The
exact error
from the log file looks like this:

Could NOT find Qt5FontDatabaseSupport (missing:
Qt5FontDatabaseSupport_LIBRARY Qt5FontDatabaseSupport_INCLUDE_DIR)

I'm using Qt 5.9.1 (git repo).

Hey folks :)

Since 2015 I and other people have been talking about Evolving KDE

reflecting on where we are, where we want to go and how we will get
there. We have made great strides with defining our vision

17.08 Applications Release announcement text

Hello folks, I noticed that there was not much progress on the release
announcement text, and I had some time last night, so I worked up an
announcement text based on those we've had in the past, and the notes
left by developers on
<a href="https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_17.08_new_features" title="https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_17.08_new_features">https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_17.08_new_features</a> .

I found some of these notes rather difficult to make sense of, so
please check!

Tab handling shortcuts across KDE applications

Hello everyone,
I'd like to try to drive a resolution for
<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80657" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80657">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80657</a>, which is about harmonizing
tab handling shortcuts across KDE applications.

In order to move forward on this, we'll need to discuss what shortcuts
we should standardize on. In the time since the bug was written in 2004,
a rough standard has emerged: ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab and
ctrl+pgup/ctrl+pgdn. This is used across all major web browsers as well
as all GNOME software.

If we can agree on that, I'll start working on individual apps to get
their defaults changed.

KTorrent 5.1

Hi,

As you know KTorrent does not have an active maintainer but there are still work going on.

I'll release 5.1 RC in a week (next Monday or very soon afterwards). It has significantly more
complete KF5 port than 5.0 had (Everything ported except for webinterface plugin and plasmoid).

Bugfixes are welcome.

Best,
Andrius Štikonas

QupZilla vs. Konqueror vs. ???

I expected KHTML's lagging behind web specifications to lead to some kind of
massive change before now. Nevertheless, I'm not appreciative of what seems to
be the current plan.

1-I am in favor of any names that begin with either K or Q, as these naturally
and beautifully identify any application as a good fit to the QT-toolkit-based
KDE environment providing it.

2-"Zilla" IMO has no legitimate place in the name of any web browser that is not
built using a Mozilla browser engine.

Repositories to be dropped for KDE Applications 17.12 since they still use kdelibs4

I created
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Applications/17.12_repo_drop_list_kdelibs4" title="https://community.kde.org/Applications/17.12_repo_drop_list_kdelibs4">https://community.kde.org/Applications/17.12_repo_drop_list_kdelibs4</a>

This lists the repositories that i could find that are part of KDE
Applications that would be dropped since they still use kdelibs4 in the master
branch.

Please double check if the list is right.

There's questions like
Who do we ask if they want to port it?
What is the status?
and some other custom QUESTION:

If you know the answer fill it in, if you think you know who can know the
answer, either write their name in the wiki or ask them directly and write the
answer in the wiki.

releaseme now relying on kdoctools for documentation installation

Hola!

As per [1] the release management suite releaseme creates tarballs
which rely on kdoctools to process a directory with docbooks inside.
Previously releaseme manually constructed CMakeLists suitable for the
documentation lineup at hand. This required an excessive amount of
fairly poorly engineered code though, so this change should increase
the overall reliability of documentation installation.

Unfortunately, this also comes with a slight downside as previously
releaseme would try very hard to retain logic in the english
documentation (e.g.

Flatpak KDE Nightlies

Hey,
Just configured to have the server issue a new daily build (at 3am

C++ multiple classes doing similar stuff

In isoimagewriter I've multiple classes doing ISO verification. How
this is done differs per distro so I've different classes for Neon,
Kubuntu, Arch etc. They share a common parent class to not duplicate
too much code. But I still need to create each class and call it
individually.

In a more dynamic language I'd make an array of these classes for loop
over the array to call them. What's a good way to do something
similar in c++?

I worry the answer will include templates and other scary parts of c++.

kio-upnp-ms - kf5 port

Hey all,

from what I know there is no kf5 port of the upnp kio slave yet.Is
there any interest in porting it or is there an alternative for kf5?

If there is some interest, I will start working on this in the next
few days.

anyone interested in working on a KIO slave on libcloudstorage?

Hola!

I've just been talking to Jean-Baptiste Kempf from VideoLAN about
their new cloud library libcloudstorage [1] which is apparently fairly
usable now and supports a whole bunch of main stream file storage
clouds.
We are thinking that a KIO slave based on this could be really awesome
and give us access to clouds without having to deal with each cloud
individually.

RFC: Applications 17.12 as LTS release

Hi all,
I'm looking for feedback about the proposal of making KDE Applications
17.12 an LTS release. If there are enough developers interested, we can
make this happen (see this thread [1] on release-team for some context).

Motivations for making 17.12 an LTS release:

* 17.12 due in December, next Plasma LTS due in January.
* New openSUSE and Ubuntu LTS releases due next year.
* 17.12 won't have kdelibs4 applications, so it would be a 'stable' target.

On the other hand, Albert made good points against [2][3], since an LTS
branch means more work for developers.

Please improve our Junior Jobs list

At the GSOC BoF at Akademy it came to our attention that the bugzilla junior job list[1] could be better.

Various things:
* Make sure entries are up to date, i.e. you're not listing something that was already implemented or that doesn't make sense anymore

* Add new jobs that may make sense

* Make sure the jobs have a somewhat detailed description of what is really needed, not some vague "improve this"

KDE Applications 17.08 branches created

Hi all,

the release of KDE Applications 17.08 is closer[1]. The branch
'Applications/17.08' was created in all repositories part of the bundle.

Please commit everything that should land on 17.08 (bug fixes for sure) on
Applications/17.08 (my suggestion is then to forward-merge into master, better
than cherry-pick).

The translations from trunk were copied to the stable branches as well, as usual.

Unless of course some human error, let's see tomorrow what the scripts say.

Hey all,

I have the pleasure to finally announce the availability of hotspot v1.0.0.
Hotspot is a GUI for Linux perf. Right now, it's a drop-in replacement for
(parts of) `perf report`. It aims to be easier to use, but comes with powerful
features to analyze the profiler data:

- summary view
- bottom-up, top-down and caller/callee aggregations
- tooltips, searching, sorting etc.

Bugzilla maintenance work

Hello everyone!

In my past life, I've done a lot of issue tracker and bug management
work, and I'd like to do the same for the KDE bugzilla, where there are
a lot of bugs that are duplicates, untriaged, etc. How can I go about
getting permission to do things like change bug statuses? For example,
I'd like to:

- Mark <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=374954" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=374954">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=374954</a> as a duplicate of

Need help regarding qfile management inside KAuth helper

Hi all,
I am working on the GSOC project "Polkit support in KIO". As a part of this
project right now I am trying to add KAuth support to the 'copy' method of
file ioslave. My initial plan was to let KAuth helper open the files
requiring elevated privilege for reading and/or writing and then pass the
file descriptor or maybe the file pointer back to the copy method of file
ioslave which would then perform rest of the copy operation.

I tried different approaches but none seemed to work.

QxOrm library doesn't depend on boost framework anymore (the boost
dependency has been fully removed, replaced by some C++11 features).
So QxOrm library is now a pure Qt library which depends only on QtCore and
QtSql by default.
For backward compatibility, QxOrm library still supports some boost classes
(boost smart-pointers, unordered containers, boost::optional, etc...) : you
have to define _QX_ENABLE_BOOST compilation option to enable these features.

Main advantages are :

Project - Autotests and improving Protocol Support for Kopete [Week 3 Report 2]

Hi,
Last wee I was able to complete following tasks -
- reading about the required material about kf5 to handle the blocker of
the previous week
- write auto tests for libkopete
Link: <a href="https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/130147/" title="https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/130147/">https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/130147/</a>

I have done these tasks and submitted a review request. Contribution has
been low but will increase from the coming week. I took the advice from the
last email. I will now build the required sources for plugins for tests.
That resolves the issue of undefined reference which I was facing.

Regards,
Vijay Krishnavanshi

Re: Cant build KDE EDU Blinken from source code (Aman Gupta)

Hi Aman,

I was facing the same sort of issue. This is happening as cmake is not able

5.10 regression with media playback keys

Howdy all,
I've found a significant regression in Plasma 5.10: after locking and
unlocking the screen, hardware media playback keys no longer work. I
suspect it's related to the (much appreciated) work to add media
playback controls to the lock screen.

I've filed <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=380526" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=380526">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=380526</a>

KMyMoney 4.8.0 AqBanking and Gwenhywfar dependency version

Hello,

I'm trying to package KMyMoney with hbci for openSUSE. Therefore I backported
the cmake files (aqbanking-config.cmake, ...) to AqBanking 5.1 and gwenhywfar
4.7 (current versions in suse 42.2 repo). Beside some linker errors in
konlinetasks_sepa (multiple definition of
`sepaStoragePlugin::qt_static_metacall) my question is:

Is the dependency on aqbanking 5.5.1 and gwenhywfar 4.13 caused by the need of
the cmake files or does kmymoney requires some new features in this versions?

Kind regards,

Joachim Langenbach
