Description Chris Reffett gentoo-dev Security 2012-11-27 15:41:21 UTC
I got a request from user Matthias Heizmann (CC'd) to add plasma-active support to KDE, and he sent me some patches that should add the support. Going to post them here for review, and I suggest that we apply these patches in 4.10 onwards.

kde-active-patches.tar.bz2

The submitted patches. We do need to figure out what USE flag we want to put these additions under.
Comment 2 Matthias Heizmann 2012-11-29 02:37:48 UTC
The tar.bz2 archive contains patches that I use to get the mobile user interfaces of the KDE PIM applications.
The patches add
- kmail-mobile to kde-base/kmail
- korganizer-mobile to kde-base/korganizer
- kaddressbook-mobile to kde-base/kaddressbook
if the USE flag "mobile-ui" is set.

All three rely on some common files which are build if
kde-base/kdepim-common-libs is patched and build with USE flag "mobile-ui".



These mobile user interfaces of the KDE PIM applications are only one part of plasma active (http://plasma-active.org/).
The most important packages can be found here.
ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/active/3.0/src/
I am (slowly) working on writing ebuilds for all of them. I am not very experienced, I am not sure if I will succeed.


However, some discussion about how plasma-active can be added to portage will be helpful. Then I do not have to rewrite these ebuilds too often.


It seems to me that a USE flag for plasma-active (or mobile user interaces) is very helpful, because as mentioned in this readme,
ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/active/3.0/src/README
the following patches 
ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/active/3.0/src/patches/
for kdelibs and kde-workspace are required. But I guess we do not want to apply these patches in general.
(Note: These patches are not required for the mobile user interaces of the KDE PIM applications.)

Patches for mobile user interaces of KDE PIM applications

The former attachment contained patches to obtain three (of five) mobile user interfaces. This attachment contains the patches for all five.
kmail-mobile (mobile UI for kmail)
kaddressbook-mobile (mobile UI for kaddressbook)
korganizer-mobile (mobile UI for korganizer, but events only)
tasks-mobile (mobile UI for korganizer, but to-do only)
notes-mobile (mobile UI for knotes)

This means that Korganizer has two mobile UIs. One for events, one for to-dos.

An alternative would be:
Do not add a USE flag to kmail, kaddressbook, korganizer and ktasks but add five split packages, one for each mobile user interface.

For anyone interested, I will be starting work on this this weekend in the "active" branch of the kde overlay.

I would be interested in helping out with testing plasma active in gentoo. Do you have instructions for how to set everything up? Which packages to install, how to configure kdm and so on...
Comment 6 Chris Reffett gentoo-dev Security 2013-01-08 15:20:30 UTC
I've been looking at this over the past couple days, and I'm thinking it will be best to hold off until the plasma-active 4 beta comes out, because a number of the patches don't apply to 4.10 right now. I will look at writing ebuilds for some of of the smaller packages now, but probably won't push them into the KDE overlay until the beta comes out.
Comment 7 Johannes Huber gentoo-dev 2013-05-23 21:05:15 UTC
We decided in the gentoo kde team meeting that kde plasma active is not ready for tree yet. Will stay in kde overlay for now.
Comment 8 Johannes Huber gentoo-dev 2015-07-08 19:56:10 UTC
Feel free to grab the current ebuilds.

Plasma Active removed, we will package Plasma Mobile instead at some point.

plasma-mobile-9999.ebuild

Here's the ebuild I made to try it out. I wrote it several months ago, though, so it might need some changes.
