what replaced kcmshell applets when kinfocenter removed?

Lots of nothing Googling this. Could not find any discussion of kinfocenter
removal other than mailing list and
https://bugs.trinitydesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2135 mention that it happened.

Mainstream KDE is going to need systemd


By reading PCLinuxOS texstar twitter feed, I learned that mainstream KDE is going to need systemd. Here you can read it: https://twitter.com/iluvpclinuxos

And I found this article which explains why they want to do this:

I do not want or need to comment on this, since as an user, I don't care that much about init system, but I wanted to share this info here.

Have a great day!

Taskbar icons

When changing the panel height from 37 to 38 pixels, the taskbar icon buttons start stacking. Is there a way
to stop that stacking behavior?

FYI: hal removed from Jessie

Michele, Tim,

as I noticed HAL has been removed from Jessie:

Revision 3841
Modified Wed Apr 23 13:19:34 2014 UTC (9 days, 21 hours ago) by biebl 
Mark the hal packages as kfreebsd-any hurd-any. On Linux they have been
superseded by udev/udisks/upower.

This means that kpowersave has no meaning build for Jessie.

FYI: libr and tdelibs are broken again on Jessie

Michele, Tim, others

well, libr and maybe tdelibs are broken again on Jessie. Update binutils broke 
the compatibility. I'll send updated libr package to build-farm, when I'll 
know that on the build-farm have been updated base build-root for Jessie.

Suggestion Metabug

Hi all,

by strolling through Bugzilla, especially Bug 2014, i've noticed that
there are several Bugs seems to have similar problems. Mainly:
 885: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=885
1879: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1879
1887: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1887
1888: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1888
1892: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1892
1947: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1947
1971: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1971
1976: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1976

What about making an metabug to keep those bugs together and have an
overview over the status

Just my 2 cents

Greetings Werner

Build failures

Fresh clean build last night. I ran into two build failures with tdegames and tdeaddons:


/dev/shm/tdegames/kpat/freecell-solver/move.c:468: undefined reference to `convert_freecell_num'


/dev/shm/tdeaddons/atlantikdesigner/designer/designer.cpp:30:29: fatal error:
atlantic/estate.h: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

Improve compton-tde configuration options

François, Darrell,

please can you test a set of patches from the bug report 2028? In my opinion, 
the patches look good and I'm ready to push. Soon I make a test build on all 
supported Debian and Ubuntu versions. So I would like if you can test some of 
your distributions.


Many thanks

TDE running on real MIPS hardware

Hi all,

when I was preparing my small builder for 'R14 preliminary stable-builds' 
alternative apt source, I did not plan other architectures than i386 and 
amd64. But then I made a few tests to probe ways to also build both arm 
architectures. The tests were successful, so they are now available all 
architectures as on the build-farm.

Given that builds for other platforms are going pretty well, I tried one more 
experiment. Because I have an older SGI Indy workstation, I tried on my small 
builder to build packages in addition for MIPS architecture. And experiment 
has succeeded. With little difficulty is now built 100% packages!

Graphics card on my SGI Indy hardware unfortunately only allows 8-bit color 
depth, and as I found on this color depth many TDE application crashes - see 
bug 2033. Attached screenshot is therefore from TightVNC server, where I set 
a higher color depth. I note that this machine has only 64 MiB RAM, so it is 
very slow. But it works!

Note: Packages for Wheezy on MIPS are available in my APT source. If someone 
has a better hardware than my SGI Indy (about 1995), you can try it and let 
know how it works for you :)

The blank screen problem should be fixed in GIT hash c2692e04.  It would
have shown up with the use of any compositor.

FTBFS: new "compton" does not build on older distro

I've noticed that the new "compton" stuff (from tdebase package) does 
not build on RHEL6 :

Linking C executable compton-tde

The libconfig version is 1.3.2 .
There is no "config_set_include_dir" anywhere in /usr/include/* .
Please, either find a way to build on older distro, or make the whole 
feature optional (with a cmake option).
