Description Christian Loosli 2008-10-19 17:10:57 UTC
With recent Kontact versions (1.2.9 tested), basket integration fails due to a plugin version mismatch in the .desktop file. 

The same problem was solved some time ago by adding


so that in basket.desktop the X-KDE-KontactPluginVersion was set to 5, however, in the meantime plugin version 6 is necessary.

This problem can be solved by changing the line






Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge basket (doesn't matter which version, but take the more recent) 
2. emerge kontact (1.2.9 or newer) or the kdepim package containing it
3. launch kontact

Actual Results:  
basket integration missing

Expected Results:  
basket integration is there

easy to solve, look at the bug description. Fix tested, works here. 

Maybe adding a third file would be better than changing, so you have backwards compatibility.

I can confirm (though I'm using x11-misc/basket-, that this version number change fixes the problem for KDE-3.5.10, but AFAIK in KDE-3.5.8 X-KDE-KontactPluginVersion=5 is still necessary, because X-KDE-KontactPluginVersion increased in KDE-3.5.9.

Hmm it does not wrk for me :-(

changed to  X-KDE-KontactPluginVersion=6

also in

but still no basket in kontact.

I'm using:

nice -n 19 emerge -avD basket kontact

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] x11-misc/basket-  USE="crypt -arts -debug -xinerama" 0 kB
[ebuild   R   ] kde-base/kontact-3.5.10  USE="-debug" 0 kB

Basket integration fails for me too . I am using stable kde3.5 so I have kontact-3.5.9 installed

[ebuild   R   ] x11-misc/basket-1.0.2  USE="crypt -arts -debug -xinerama" 0 kB
[ebuild   R   ] kde-base/kontact-3.5.9  USE="-arts -debug -kdeenablefinal -xinerama" 0 kB

So , I guess this issue is not just for recent kontact/basket versions

Created attachment 179140 [details, diff]

This patch works for me.  I am using kde-base/kontact-3.5.10
