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"

Cheers,
Albert

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.

Need HTML/CSS help for Konqueror's about page

Hello there,

I'm porting the Konqueror about page from KHTML to WebEngine,
and it turns out that the same CSS/HTML doesn't render the same in both
engines.

In WebEngine (and Firefox, for that matter) it's all squished to the left of
the page.

Can someone with CSS/HTML knowledge send me a modified version of the attached
files so that they render correctly in e.g.

ANN: hotspot v1.0.0 released, a GUI for Linux perf (report)

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.

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 1.4.4 and QxEntityEditor 1.2.2 released : boost dependency fully removed (replaced by C++11 features)

Hello,

*QxOrm library 1.4.4* and *QxEntityEditor application 1.2.2* just released (
<a href="http://www.qxorm.com/" title="http://www.qxorm.com/">http://www.qxorm.com/</a>) !

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.

5.10 regression with media playback keys

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

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

It won't let itself drag/drop to the desktop
It keeps saying

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

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)

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,

Officially revoking support for 2.4.0

Hi! (Heavy traffic today:)

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.

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.

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.

Trouble setting up my KDE development environment

Howdy all! I'm trying to set up a KDE development environment on my
openSUSE Tumbleweed machine to submit a patch for
<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377994" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377994">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377994</a>, following the instructions
at <a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source</a>

I've gotten to the point where I'm able to run `kdesrc-build
kinfocenter`. But the build is repeatedly failing with missing packages.
I figure out which package is missing and try again, and then a
different one is missing.

Dears,

I am interested in joining GSoC this year, but I have not submitted a

I am interested in one of the projects you are mentoring (GCompris), and I
need to know what level of knowledge should I have, and what are the steps

GSoC Proposal

Hello everyone!

I'm Vasudha, a member of WikiToLearn. I'm interested in working on Project
Ruqola.

Here's the link to my proposal. Any feedback would be highly appreciated :)

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].

KDF needs to be updated for Plasma

"KDF" in Plasma could use some attention, except for "root/" you can't
tell if a partition is mounted or not while using "KwikDisk".
