Qt 4.2 and kdesupport snapshots updated

I’ve updated my universal packages for Qt and kdesupport to handle the latest that’s going on in kdelibs trunk (the move to Qt 4.2 snapshots, D-Bus moving from kdesupport to Qt, etc.) You should be able to build kdelibs trunk with these packages, until things change again. 😉

    I see all these updates to the Qt and kde/support which are surely interesting, but should we expect at some point also some other kde packages built on top of them or this is it?

  • They’re going through a lot of huge changes right now so I hadn’t yet bothered to put any kdelibs (much less higher) snapshots out yet.
    If I get my dashboard systems happy again, I might look into figuring out how to auto-generate them though.

    Does the support package include the jpeg library? Because I have tried to build from source twice and that is the thing that cmake keeps saying it can not find.
    And on a related question or two… how do you remove/uninstall the kde stuff. And since xcode 2.3 includes QT3 somthing b something… should I just try the older packages built under qt3?
    Thanks and I appreciate the work that you have been doing on this.

  • Chris, It does support the JPEG library. You don’t happen to be setting DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH do you? You can end up freaking out one of the Apple-included frameworks if so. You can see what kind of error it’s having building by looking in the CMakeFiles/ directory.
    And no, XCode does not include Qt in any form (you must be thinking of “QT” which means QuickTime, not the same as the trolltech toolkit).
    Either way, the Qt3-based port is abandoned and doesn’t work very well. If you want KDE that works right now, you should be using the X11 one. If you want to help port, you should be using KDE4 from subversion. 🙂

  • interresting, but as gian said, I wish there would be at least kdelibs and kdebase.
    in the mean time, could you provide a quick howto to compil kdelibs, kdebase and others once the qt and kdesupport packages are installed?
    thanks

  • sorry I just realized the link to the wiki….

    still, binary please 😉

    hi,
    please, help me. 🙂 I need build native KDE4-base for my MacBook and i’ve some issues.
    I’ve followed this howto http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?page=Building+KDE%2FMac+from+Source
    but i can’t build the qt4.2-snapshot.
    This process failed on this error:
    ….
    GNU libiconv enabled.
    The QtDBus module cannot be enabled because libdbus-1 version 0.62 was not found.
    Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to ./configure to see the final report.
    If you believe this message is in error you may use the continue
    switch (-continue) to ./configure to continue.
    ….
    I’ve this dbus-0.62 manual downloaded from this url http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus-0.62.tar.gz and installed (in path /usr/local/dbus) .. but this error is still same.
    What’s wrong ?

  • DBus is in the kdesupport package, you probably just need to do:
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=”/opt/kde4-deps/lib/pkgconfig”
    before running cmake.

  • Donald

    thnx, the variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH have my issue resolved. After setting this path to pkgconfig are the compilation qt4.2 without any problem.
    Anyway, I’d like to know where you have the kde4-deps from. How did you include libdbus and libdbus-qt ? Did you compile that? If yes, I’d like to know how, although I already have qt-4.2 and kde4 compiled.
    thnx

  • Yeah, I compiled everything in kde4-deps myself (manually). It was a lot of work (especially making them universal), there’s no quick answer to “how”. 🙂
