in short. yes (the dependencies)

in long. install kwin or kwinft when one of two is broken, and keep the dependencies intact installed

Sorry, I understand what you mean now.

But why would you want to have both kscreen and kdisplay installed?

kscreen is used by kwin, and kdisplay is used by kwinft; therefore, if you want to switch to kwinft, you don't need kscreen anymore, so it can safely be removed (that's why it's in conflicts()).

Do you want to have both compositors installed?

tested removing kscreen from conflicts(). build ands install ok without removing kscreen. so set kscreen in conflicts is not needed

Which 2 packages can be installed together?

IslandC0der commented on 2021-11-18 01:25 (UTC)

I know, I'm saying this package conflicts with kscreen, kdisplay, and kdisplay-kwinft

im talking about kscreen, not kdisplay

kdisplay-git sets kscreen as conflicts. but kscreen-kwinft not have this requeriment and can be installing together

IslandC0der commented on 2021-11-17 19:16 (UTC)


Both this package and kdisplay-kwinft provide and conflict with kdisplay, so they automatically conflict with each other (if you try installing them together, it won't work).

sl1pkn07 commented on 2021-11-17 18:06 (UTC)


why this is conflict with kscreen but kdisplay-kwinft not?

@Xakep_SDK It's good practice to always use KDE -git dependencies for KDE -git packages; for some packages, it often works just fine with non -git ones, but there's no guarantee it won't break in the future (aka almost certainly will).
But since this is a separate project and they don't seem to be incorporating unstable KDE features, it should be fine :)

Xakep_SDK commented on 2021-06-25 19:20 (UTC)

Could you please change -git dependencies to non-git ones? Kdisplay works perfectly with non-git deps. Having -git deps forces users to compile half of plasma.

JoshuaAshton commented on 2021-05-19 13:06 (UTC)

This should be removed from the plasma-git group. It's a fork.

PedroHLC commented on 2020-07-20 13:31 (UTC)

The usage of provides and conflicts is right, but the replaces is wrong.

Users from my repo are reporting it to be asking for replacing the official kscreen which isn't desired in any ocassion:
