I'm dropping maintenance of this package as I'm quite busy maintaining other things.

Seems like some dependencies need to be updated, but I don't know which.


  • optional dependency python-language-server should be replaced by python-lsp-server,
  • consider changing optional dependency konsole-git to konsole,
  • make dependency extra-cmake-modules needs to be replaced by extra-cmake-modules-git (it needs very new variant) or extra-cmake-modules>=5.240.0.

Thanks for maintaining!

ugh, lsp server crashes instantly since recently. Maybe fmt10 related? idk, something about the json parser not accepting some data.

Sure thing, you have made good points!

MarsSeed commented on 2022-07-11 15:49 (UTC)

If you'd like, you could make me co-maintainer. :)

I would use this -git package every day so I should be able to keep it in quite a good shape. :)

MarsSeed commented on 2022-07-11 15:48 (UTC)

python-language-server is broken, and is pending deletion now.

Hi, thank you for maintaining this package.

Could you please kindly adjust some dependencies?

First, I've noted some differences from Arch repo's kate. Would you edit your PKGBUILD dependencies to be similar to the former? Here is a list of changes required for that:

  • remove kitemmodels
  • remove the obsolete python-language-server and add python-lsp-server (optional): Python LSP support
  • change konsole-git to konsole (allow non-git version, as it's a separate app and differing release versions should work together)
  • add git (optional): git-blame plugin
  • add markdownpart (optional): Markdown preview
  • add svgpart (optional): SVG preview

There is a mistake in Arch kate and therefore here as well, please kindly amend it:

  • remove rust (optional) and replace it with rust-analyzer (optional): Rust LSP support

You can also add additional optdepends that the repo package misses:

I know it seems a lot but it would be really helpful! Thank you in advance!

Well its aligned with most of the KDE/Plasma -git packages in AUR/Chaotic-AUR

malcolm commented on 2021-03-30 14:17 (UTC)

are you sure that all these dependencies need to be the git version? they are pulling in several others and the whole system will change.

i have been using a very alternative version of this pkgbuild for a long time, that i changed myself (not very professional), and i did not need to use these git packages.

After having seen the preview of the new version I had to get this done. Looks too good :D
