Description Thomas Capricelli 2017-10-14 20:11:57 UTC
The current version in portage, games-kids/gcompris-15.10-r1, is several years old and is the 'old' version of gcompris, based on gtk. Since then the development has moved to qt/qml, and there are regular releases, as seen on

I understand version 1.0 is still to happen, but since the move to qt/qml has been in progress for several years, my opinion is that the new version could be available in portage, even if masked.

Comment 2 Thomas Capricelli 2018-03-18 21:04:03 UTC
The last version was released at the beginning of this week, 0.90 :

It's still based on Qt and still missing in gentoo, please !

Comment 4 Virgil Dupras gentoo-dev 2018-10-12 17:01:03 UTC
To avoid versioning problems (15.10 --> 0.91), I've immediately removed the old version following the bump. The new Qt version is of a much better quality than the old GTK based one.
Comment 5 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-12-24 12:54:22 UTC
Package is missing SLOT 5 dependency on all dev-qt packages.
Comment 6 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-12-24 12:57:51 UTC
kde overlay has already had a live ebuild for gcompris for some time, I'm going to look at the differences to your version.

Meanwhile 0.95 was released.
Comment 7 Virgil Dupras gentoo-dev 2018-12-24 13:28:01 UTC
Oh, I hadn't noticed gcompris's presence in the KDE overlay. I must admit that understanding the kde eclass is beyond my immediate will. I took this package over because it didn't seem actively maintained, but if someone want to give the package a more KDE-ish flavor, please take over the package.

Otherwise, I'm bumping now.
