Description David Watzke 2005-12-03 05:24:47 UTC
Hi, I'm using Kompare and I don't want KDiff3, but I want Kuroo and he wants 
KDiff3, but needn't it. Uff. I can edit it in overlay, but better is this. :-) 
Hide it under some flag, or just remove it please. Thanks

I disagree. On an initial install kuroo tries to use kdiff3 and it will not  
work without it. Please correct me if I am wrong. If you can fix kuroo to  
automatically use kompare if kdiff3 is not present without forcing the user to  
try and figure out why it doesn't work then please submit the patch upstream.  
If this is already the case and I missed something please point it out too.  
Otherwise the dep stays. Marking as an WONTFIX, please reopen if I am  
wrong in any of this. The app should work for the user without them having to  
figure out what is wrong up on first use.  
Comment 2 David Watzke 2005-12-03 15:29:21 UTC
Hm, howto run it again as on initial install? If rm -rf  
~/.kde/share/config/.kuroorc (as root and user) is that, then KDiff3 isn't 
Comment 3 Marcus D. Hanwell (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-12-03 15:54:43 UTC
That is hardly without user intervention there is it. Edit it in an overlay - I  
don't think that this is a bug and you haven't said anything to convince me 
otherwise. Even following your instructions I end up being told that kdiff3 is 
not present and so it cannot diff the file and it fails. 
This has been discussed before and I see no reason to change the dependency 
now. If kuroo was changed to automatically utilise kompare when kdiff3 is not 
present then then I think it would be reasonable to make it a dep on either

Okay, then sorry, and thanks for your time. I'll be using KDiff3, isn't bad at
