kde-misc/caledonia-kdmtheme-1.0

This is an elegant, reduced kdm theme. Actually caledonia consists of a whole suite with plasma, icon, colour scheme etc. and is among the best rated kde-look downloads. This kdm theme would be more complete with the matching caledonia ksplash theme, maybe I'll add that too.

I've created an ebuild because the khotnewstuff part in systemsettings seems to be useless without root permissions and installing into /usr/share/ that way would be a mess anyway.

Simple ebuild attached.
Comment 1 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2013-07-10 18:57:33 UTC
Package has moved to sourceforge.
Author is not releasing versioned packages, but only "latest".
Author has split it into 5+ tarballs.
Author provides "graphical shell script for automatic download and install".

In short, distribution packager's nightmare.

In other words we as kde herd arent interested in this package. Re-assigning to maintainer-wanted then.

Changed ebuild accordingly.

> Author is not releasing versioned packages, but only "latest".
Awaiting author's answer wrt versioned download possibility.

> Author has split it into 5+ tarballs.
Created ebuilds for all 5 components as well as a meta ebuild. Unless a single USE-flag driven ebuild would be preferred?

> Author provides "graphical shell script for automatic download and install".
Seems it just downloads the tarballs, it doesn't do any installing. Wouldn't be possible for the ksplash part anyway, without root.

Comment 5 Alexandre 2014-01-07 21:30:25 UTC
"Caledonia Art Suit" is default on Chakra so should be some sort of versioning around (non public?).
Comment 6 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2014-01-08 00:28:03 UTC
A search did only find something in their 'AUR' repo, nothing in their official package section: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?O=0&K=caledonia&do_Search=Go

They probably parse those version numbers from the author's deviantart page announcements. But unless there are properly versioned downloads, one thing we could do is fetch the tarballs at a given date, compare hashes, rename accordingly to yyyymmdd if there was a change and bump the ebuild.
Comment 7 Alexandre 2014-01-08 00:42:35 UTC
Chakra doesn't use ArchLinux repositories anymore.

http://chakra-linux.org/wiki/index.php?title=Repositories

But using date for versio control is a good way in this case. Unfortunately I don't know how to write a ebuild so I can't help with that. :(
Comment 8 Lukas Schneiderbauer 2014-03-08 15:15:02 UTC
It seems the author has switched to releasing versioned packages.
- Plasma Theme 1.6.2
- KDM 1.3
- Ksplash 1.3
- Wallpaper Collection 1.5

* Color-Scheme not versioned yet.

Thank you for your effort, Andreas!

> Package has moved to sourceforge.
Is this bad per se?

> Author is not releasing versioned packages, but only "latest".
Is resolved now. (ignoring the color-scheme)

> Author has split it into 5+ tarballs.
I think this is reasonable because the packages are independent in principle.

> Author provides "graphical shell script for automatic download and install".
The ebuilds are not using this shell script.


Are you interested now, kde-herd?
Comment 16 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2014-03-09 11:31:07 UTC
Thanks, I'm glad someone's interested!

Things I am not so sure about with the ebuilds:
- RDEPEND for caledonia-ksplash and caledonia-kdmtheme - does it make sense?
- Make kdmtheme optional in the meta ebuild? Not everyone is using that, and it is going away in future kde releases

Patch for Andreas' caledonia-wallpapers-1.5.ebuild

With current online tarball I need to change the 'work'-path to get it working.

caledonia-plasmatheme-1.9.ebuild

Here a renewed ebuild for the Caledonia plasma theme 1.9.
Basically a copy of Andreas' ebuild modulo file name changes of the docs made by the author.

caledonia-meta-20140819.ebuild

thx for the bump, new meta ebuild makes kdmtheme optional
Comment 20 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2015-07-05 09:36:00 UTC
Closing for not using it myself anymore and irrelevance (plasma 5, hey!)
Comment 21 Alexandre 2015-07-05 16:43:21 UTC
It's not fully obsolete. The plasma theme already works on plasma 5, also the colors and almost certainly everything  will be updated by/for Caledonia but the KDM theme.
