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
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
basket integration missing
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-188.8.131.52), 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
but still no basket in kontact.
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-184.108.40.206 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

This patch works for me. I am using kde-base/kontact-3.5.10
Thank you very much for the patch, applied in CVS
