lzip vs. xz

Hi devs!

We provide all source tarballs xz-compressed. Now, apparently, xz is quite a
badly designed format (cf. <a href="http://lzip.nongnu.org/xz_inadequate.html" title="http://lzip.nongnu.org/xz_inadequate.html">http://lzip.nongnu.org/xz_inadequate.html</a> ), and
lzip provides the same compression, but an apparently distinctly more
reasonable format.

I must admit that I personally neither heard about lzip, nor about xz being no
good choice until today, but the current tar even supports it through the --
lzip switch.

It seems to me that xz has more attention and popularity than it deserves, and
lzip has less.

Systemd KCM: new maintainer needed or deprecate

A system settings category .desktop file got moved from systemd-kcm to
plasma
<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/D22930" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/D22930">https://phabricator.kde.org/D22930</a>
This makes packages incompatible which breaks installs

So we could just do a new release of systemd-kcm but it is unmaintained and
has not passed kdereview so it seems unwise.

Cmake and dbus daemon on the system bus

Hello,
not sure if this is the right place to ask. I'm working on this new
feature: <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410902" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410902">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410902</a>. In the current
implementation I used KAuth, but it seems to me a dbus daemon would be a
better fit for this case. The daemon must be run as root, and should
therefore probably use the systemBus. I read the tutorials related to dbus
in the techbase pages, but those seem more oriented to the sessionBus.

I already implemented the communication, which seems to work properly.

Retirement of notes.kde.org

Good evening all,

Currently we're in the situation where the software we use to run
notes.kde.org is both difficult to maintain, as well as support (for
things like document confidentiality for various groups within KDE).

We'd therefore like to retire the service, replacing it with the
Realtime Text Editor within Nextcloud (share.kde.org).

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'd like to congratulate your to your free linux open-source operating system KDE neon, which is based on Ubuntu Linux Long Term Support.

Unfortunately your KDE Discover Updater has tried to update the following package every day since this week and reports an error message.

Taking over maintainership of libkscreen / KScreen

Hi,

since I am the only person responsible for bigger changes to
libkscreen and KScreen over months now I propose to take over
maintainership of libkscreen / KScreen. Actually I changed the
maintainership information already in code for KScreen with
<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/D22468" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/D22468">https://phabricator.kde.org/D22468</a>,

so that's what this email is for.

If there are questions please let me know.

RFC: Apps using KF5 & deprecated API - preferred flags to disable/enable warnings and/or API?

Hi,

developer using KDE Frameworks libraries in your projects, how would you like

kdump all the things!

I've made a thing that makes systemd-coredump easier to use and I for

reliable but also less UI faffing to get to what matters most to me...

Flatpak/Snap/Appimage BoF at Akademy

Hi,

do we want to do another Flatpak/Snap/Appimage BoF at Akademy this year? From
my side it definitely can be useful and we can also have new people around
this time and help them to package their applications if anyone is interested.

Which day would you prefer? There is AGM on Monday and a daytrip on Wednesday,
while most of the Tuesday is taken by Plasma, which is where I expect most of
the people. Does Thursday sound good to you?

Portability of KDE Applications

Hi all,

Has anyone had issues with KDE Apps (based on kde frameworks) portability?

I mean, the app can use different types of file: .rc, .knsrc, .png,
additinal binary files, etc
The problem appears, if you installed this files non standart installetion
prefix, like /opt.

Obviously, I can forward-pass installation prefix path, binary path, etc
from Cmake to the aplication, but I am interested, is there support for
situtation like this from KDE frameworks?

Just an example: the app have a few .rc files for menus, can I set
additional search path for kde core addons (better from cmake, but se

Licence of GCompris in ubuntu snaps

Hi,
I just installed a fresh ubuntu and noticed that the GCompris licence
in the snap package was "Proprietary". After some search, I think it's
because it's set to "unset" in the snap package:
<a href="https://snapcraft.io/gcompris" title="https://snapcraft.io/gcompris">https://snapcraft.io/gcompris</a>

Does anyone know who should I contact to set it to GPLv3+? There is
also a "Is there a problem with gcompris? Report this app" button that
I can contact if nobody knows.

Thanks,

Johnny

How can I get KMail to produce a core dump?

Greetings,

Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release: 10
Codename: buster

Lately, KMail has been segfaulting at almost every invocation.

I wanted to review a core dump for KMail, but cordumpctl doesn't list
any core dump files available for review. To check that core dump
files are generated in the usual case, I ran:

Eliminating the last CI Failures

Hi all,

For a while now we've had a couple of projects which have been
persistently failing on all platforms, which it would be nice to get
fixed.

If someone would like to take a look into one of the following, it
would be appreciated, and would help to eliminate the last couple of
items from the Failing tab at <a href="https://build.kde.org/" title="https://build.kde.org/">https://build.kde.org/</a>

Unified git commit message guideline

For KWin we think about a message guideline because our current best
practice that we got used to over time is just sometimes putting tags
in square brackets at the beginning of the subject line for indicating
the location of the change in code but somebody noted having a square
bracket in the beginning leads to problems with certain git log parser
tools.

Asking around on IRC it seems we should expand the scope. Apparently
also other KDE projects could profit from a policy and some tooling
around it.

Taking over maintainership of Breeze GTK

Ello y'all. Considering that Breeze GTK's maintainer stepped down and I've
been doing a fair amount of work related to it (yay colorschemes for GTK3),
ngraham suggested that I should take over maintainership, and that's a pretty
good idea.

So I'll be doing that idea (taking over maintainership).

I'll probably be seeing it get a GTK4 port, as well as some other things.

Invoking "kcheckpass" from the terminal

Greetings,

I'm looking for help with debugging the kcheckpass program that is used for
validating passwords in the KDE screenlocker.

It seems to me that the best method for this would be to invoke "kcheckpass"
directly in the terminal under GDB so that its interaction with my system's
PAM module could be inspected.

The executable is available... "locate kcheckpass" leads me right to it.

Looking for incubator sponsor for Ikona

Greetings,

I have been working on a utility called Ikona. Ikona is an application
with a simple goal - to be a companion to a full fledged editor in
helping the user design icons. It shows the icons in just about any
way you want them shown - against a wallpaper, solid background,
transparent background on a wallpaper, over the KDE HIG, small, big,
you name it. It also bundles icon templates with sizes and pixel grids
preconfigured to allow designers to start working on an icon
immediately without having to set up a canvas.

Please return back KDM (is this list alive?)

I don't see any good reasons to throw it away. Wayland, QML -- that all
look rubbish to me.

Automatic scrolling when dragging in views

Hi everyone,

in <a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/T11093#192549" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/T11093#192549">https://phabricator.kde.org/T11093#192549</a> (Consistency, one of the goal
proposals for this year) I presented a small overview of different auto
scrolling behaviours across KDE applications.

- Some views already start auto scrolling when you drag something inside them
/near/ the edges, others start when you drag /beyond/ the edges.
- Some views do fast autoscrolling, others slow.
- Some views scroll pixel-wise, others item-wise.
- Some views scroll with 60 fps, others with 33 fps...

intentions,...)?

RFC: Running clang-format across all Plasma (and more?) repos

One topic discussed at the recent Plasma sprint was that we should run
a code formatting tool (clang-format) over all our repos to ease all

All new contributions simply have to run the same tool and we get
consistent code without having to comment on every minor thing in a
review individually.

KDE incubator candidate request for marK tool

Hello,

I am planning to release a new application for KDE, which is a tool to help
people on building datasets for machine learning training processes. It
will act as a general-purpose tool for annotation and allow users to

now, it is only allowing users to build image datasets. A further
description of this tool can be seen at:

How is the Font DPI Scale stored?

I am a developer for the McCLIM <https://github.com/McCLIM/McCLIM> graphics
toolkit, and I would like it to be able to integrate better with KDE.

Currently, McCLIm has a hardcoded font scale which is problematic when on a
high DPI screen. It's possible for a user to customise it but recomputing
the default fonts, but that's not ideal.

What I'd like to do is to read the KDE "Force Fonts DPI" setting, and use
it to automatically compute the new font sizes. However, it's unclear to me
how this value is propagated to applications.

Request for incubation of Kup backup system

Hello!

I want to request for my software Kup to become a KDE project. Some

- It targets users of Plasma desktop by being integrated into the system
rather than being a standalone app.

Old source files without license header?

Hi,

Two weeks ago I tried to contact a former developer of KTimeTracker
[1] to license two files under GPL. I got no response from him since
then, but may be we can assume the license is still GPLv2...

The reasons why it might be OK to just add a GPLv2 license header
without asking:
1. When these "unlicensed" files were committed into KDE SVN
repository in 2009, the root directory for KTimeTracker sources also
contained a COPYING file with GPLv2 terms. This could imply that
anything committed under the directory is automatically licensed under
GPLv2.
2.

Signing keys for commercial app stores

Hello,

I am Simon, and I work on KDE Connect. This summer, KDE Connect has two
excellent GSoC students, one working on a MacOS port and one working on
a Windows port, with the end goal of bringing those ports to feature
pairity with our Linux version and doing an official release.

While we could just post our releases to some X.kde.org website and
distribute unsigned binaries, this would not reach as many users as
having them properly signed and released via the offical MacOS and
Windows app stores.

Does anyone have experience with:

CMake 3.14.5 available for download

We are pleased to announce that CMake 3.14.5 is now available for download.

The Visual Studio 2019 16.1 update introduced a regression in MSBuild's
evaluation of custom command dependencies causing them to re-run on every build.
CMake 3.14.5 includes a workaround, for more details on the issue see:

Need help with Kapidox - messes up my work

Hi everyone,

can someone explain me how (not) to use Kapidox?

I tried to build Okular class documentation with Kapidox, whether that is
easier than with doxygen.

So I followed the README on <a href="https://cgit.kde.org/kapidox.git/tree/README.md" title="https://cgit.kde.org/kapidox.git/tree/README.md">https://cgit.kde.org/kapidox.git/tree/README.md</a>,
and got a kapidox_generate in ~/kde/kapidox/src/. 'python setup.py install'
and so on.

Then I mkdir-cd-ed to html_kapidox/ in the okular base directory, and called
kapidox_generate with the okular base directory as argument.

KDE service provider for handling arbitrary links (namely tel: links)

Hi,

first of all, I'm feeling a little silly with my question, but here we go:

I would like to provide a KDE wide service provider for handling arbitrary
links, starting with tel:. I'm using SNOM phones, and I have created an
application (years ago), that is controlling the phone (now based on PyQt5).
That is integrating with kaddressbook and ordinary selections to dial other
parties. Dialing works by calling a script, similar to ktp-dialout-ui.

Since some time, special links like e.g. tel:+49... appear on the web, and
I've taught my browser (Firefox) to handle those as well.

Thank you for selecting for GSoC 2019

Hi everyone,

Thank you KDE community for giving me the opportunity to participate in
Google Summer of Code 2019, with KDE. I have been selected for the
project "Data Sync for Falkon"

Any tips on how to make the most out of the Community Bonding Period
will be welcome.
