KDE Applications 15.08 RC

KDE Applications 15.08 RC est maintenant disponible dans Mageia Cauldron ( uniquement les applications KF5 pour le moment).
Avec l’arrivée de KDE Applications 5.08 RC, nous sommes heureux d’accueillir Kdepim porté sur KF5. Étant donné que ce fut pour la team Kdepim un énorme travail, il est important que vous remontiez tous vos bugs sur le Bugzilla KDE afin que tous soient pris en compte et corrigés.

En parallèle de cet ajout Plasma a été corrigé dans Cauldron et le bogue des « icônes manquantes » est aussi corrigé.

Pour rappel:

Bugzilla KDE: Remonté de bogues liés aux logiciels
Bugzilla Mageia: Remonté de bogues de packaging ( conflicts, etc).

Major update in cauldron

Now that cauldron is open, the kde team has updated KF5 to 5.12.0, Plasma to 5.3.2 and Kde Applications to 15.04.3.

we have added minimal kde-workspace and kdebase4-runtime that can now be installed with plasma.

This migration is a good way to remove old and unmaintained apps.

If you want to help don’t be shy 🙂

Known issues:
SystemSettings has no icons if .kde is missing.
No customisation for now.

Some work on sddm

Sddm in cauldron is now updated to the last release ( 0.0.9 ) and it is now working. Some work have been done for in the pam config file.

If you want to test it in mageia you will need to do :

systemctl disable prefdm.service && systemctl enable sddm.service

On next reboot it will not use prefdm anymore but sddm will start.

If you notice any probleme, please report your bug into Mageia Bugzilla.

Some news about KF5

Things moved recently about kf5 in mageia. We had, since a long time, the framework part.

Now that the first stable release is out we packaged the desktop/workspace  release based on KF5.

Unfortunalty this can’t be co-installed in parallel of KDE4. For the moment ( not yet clean packages ) you have to follow those steps:

1- Remove  kdebase4-workspace ( this will remove a bunch of packages workspace dependant ( plasma applets, etc).
2- install plasma-desktop and plasma-workspace

3 restart your session and in your favorite DM go in KF5.

Keep in mind that those are experimental packages.
