KDE Runtime splitting

Hi,
I would like to remind you that kde-runtime/platforms/win has been split into the KWindowsAddons [1] repostory.

Happy Hacking 5! :)

question about kde on windows- not sure this is the right address

Hi,
 Just installed kde on windows.
Works well, have this one problem that everything is aligned right to left,
rather than left to right, e.g., the top menu bars are aligned to the
right rather than left.

Thanks,
  Ariel

[Bug 333090] New: compilation of qt fails with: Error: dependent 'c:\Program\' does not exist.

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=333090

            Bug ID: 333090
           Summary: compilation of qt fails with: Error: dependent
                    'c:\Program\' does not exist.
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: kde-windows
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: MS Windows
                OS: MS Windows
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: buildsystem
          Assignee: kde-windows@...
          Reporter: dasaan.san@...

whilst trying to emerge kdelibs I get the following output:
Error: dependent 'c:\Program\' does not exist.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. fresh %KDEROOT% with only etc/kdesettings.bat and a newly cloned emerge
(master branch)
1. emerge kdelibs

Actual Results:  
Qt is now configured for building. Just run mingw32-make.
To reconfigure, run mingw32-make confclean and configure.

entering: c:\kderoot\build\libs\qt-all\work\mingw4-RelWithDebInfo-4.8.5

jom 1.0.13 - empower your cores

        cd src\tools\bootstrap\ && c:\kderoot\dev-utils\bin\jom.exe -f Makefile
        c:\kderoot\dev-utils\bin\jom.exe -f Makefile.Release
Error: dependent 'c:\Program\' does not exist.
jom:
C:\KDERoot\build\libs\qt-all\work\mingw4-RelWithDebInfo-4.8.5\src\tools\bootstrap\Makefile
[release] Error 2
jom: C:\kderoot\build\libs\qt-all\work\mingw4-RelWithDebInfo-4.8.5\Makefile
[sub-tools-bootstrap-make_default-ordered] Error 2
emerge fatal error: while running make cmd: c:\kderoot\dev-utils\bin\jom.exe
emerge fatal error: running python c:\kderoot\emerge\portage\libs\qt\qt-all.py
compile
emerge debug: Task: Emerge stopped after: 0:47:19.903000

Expected Results:  
kdelibs should compile to completion

using emerge from the master branch
using python 3.2
using mingw (installed during the emerge process)

Looking at:
C:\KDERoot\build\libs\qt-all\work\mingw4-RelWithDebInfo-4.8.5\src\tools\bootstrap\Makefile
line 220

you can see:
c:/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Microsoft\ Visual\ Studio/VC98/include/stddef.h

It would appear that jom is not honouring the escapes for the spaces.
It also makes me wonder why the VS includes are being looked for seeing as I've
specified that mingw be used to do the compiling.

I tested the jom theory by encapsulating the above path in "" jom then
complained:
Error: dependent 'c:\Program\ Files\ (x86)\Microsoft\ Visual\
Studio\VC98\include\stddef.h' does not exist.

removing the escapes from the encapsulated path caused jom to revert to the
original compilation error

Re: The future of KDE Development on Windows

Hi,
To be honest, I didn't expect people to use the occasion for ranting. We all know it's been hard to do multiplatform development on kdelibs 4, that's for granted. That's why some of us went through kdelibs and made it become the KDE Frameworks 5. It's been a massive project, and we've done it for cases like KDE Windows.

I think we should take this occasion to take a step back and re-consider the project. Let's figure out how we want things to work, what we liked from what we used to have and what we didn't.

Some questions pop in my head:
- We want KDE on Windows to keep being a distribution? Should it be a development platform or a site to download installers?
- Do we want to focus on applications?
- What's the Plasma role in KDE Windows?
- What frameworks to we want supported on Windows? [1]
- How has Windows changed since 4.0 release?

I think there's a huge space for discussion there and now it's the moment when it should take place, so that we can plan the bigger picture by taking Windows into account.

Aleix

KDE Development on Windows

Hi!
As you hopefully saw on the planet, we're trying to get together the different KDE initiatives and projects to foresee what KDE software will look like once we've adopted Qt5 and KF5 [1].

I would like to use this e-mail as an invitation to gather what's the thoughts on the initiative from the KDE Windows, as well as what are the plans and changes planned by KDE Windows (if any) for further KDE software on Windows releases.

Looking forward to your thoughts! :)
Aleix

Review Request 117162: Fix for emerging qt5 non-qtbase modules

This is an automatically generated e-mail. To reply, visit: https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/117162/

Review request for kdewin.
By Michael Hansen.
Repository: emerge

Description

QMake gets compiled with its prefix hard-coded into the executable on Windows... The existing hack to fix install prefixes caused the other qt5 modules to fail to compile, since qmake is reporting that Qt is installed on the drive root (e.g. using c:/bin instead of c:/KDE/bin). This change fixes qmake by allowing it to compile with the proper prefix, and then moving the installed files from the incorrectly prefixed subdirectory within the image dir to the root of the image dir.

Testing

Built qtbase and qtscript with the updated scripts, on MSVC2013.

[ark] [Bug 322846] On "Extract" dialog, autocompletion freezes.

--- Comment #1 from Raphael Kubo da Costa <rakuco@...> ---
Does it happen only to Ark or anything that has the same selection dialog?

 <at> Walker Boh: It won't apply anymore anyways. 

I have replaced the lesson rendering code with a complete new implementation in
KTouch 2.1 (KDE 4.11).

The changes probably also fix this bug. I can't confirm this though, I don't
have a Windows development environment.
