@tmt00 why? does compilation fail with kdoctools?

tmt00 commented on 2015-02-14 11:45

You should update the dependencies from kdoctools to kdoctools-git.

@arojas hi, this problem is from git updated yesterday or day before, and when I had this stop building message I tried re-building all tree (unistalling KF5 git packages and deleting /opt/kf5 dir) to be sure and still the same message at same point. and effectivly like you, before that update was building fine.

arojas commented on 2014-08-28 13:21

@desaparecido you didn't post the actual error. It builds fine here (but my KF5-git is a week old)

hi, I have this error since yesterday (I thought) when trying to build:

I build all git packages of KF5 and the problem is still there :/

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-19 14:47

@lockheed kwin-standalone-git is no longer necessary as it's part of kf5. I'll file a merge request.

lockheed commented on 2014-05-19 14:09

Is this project dead? Do I have to install full kwin with KDE junk to use it on xfce?

arojas commented on 2014-05-15 20:58

@lockheed It's "kwin --replace" (with two dashes)

lockheed commented on 2014-05-15 20:56

@arojas, thanks. I solved this problem, but led to another:
$ kwin -replace
"Qt Warning - invalid keysym: dead_actute"
Could not find drkonqi at /opt/kf5/lib/libexec/drkonqi
Unknown options: r, e, p, l, a, c, e.

arojas commented on 2014-05-15 07:47

@lockheed because this is installed in /opt/kf5 so that it doesn't conflict with kde4. You need to add /opt/kf5/bin to your PATH

lockheed commented on 2014-05-15 07:45

Why is it that after installing this on my XFCE, I get this:
$ kwin -replace
bash: kwin: command not found

sl1pkn07 commented on 2014-04-26 16:28

please add

export XDG_DATA_DIRS="/opt/kf5/share:$XDG_DATA_DIRS"


ant32 commented on 2014-04-02 20:32

It works now. Thank you.

arojas commented on 2014-04-02 20:11

@ant32 I guess it's the issue discussed here:

I added libxcursor as depends, please test

jleclanche commented on 2013-06-03 11:25

KDE Frameworks is an effort from the KDE community to make the entire project more modular and less inter-dependent. The plan is for kwin to be a standalone project with far less dependencies.

Anonymous comment on 2013-06-03 11:20

@ stifiling
I just found a way to do that :) but it installs a bit more packages then this but you get access to kde settings.

All you need to do is remove this package if you have it installed already as it conflicts with kde-workspace

then pacman -S kde-workspace and Boom you are ready to go :D

Adys thanks for the package as it pushed me to look around the kde packages until I found the dependencies for kde-settings.

Hopefully in future we can find a better way.

not a problem, i can still manually enable and disable the features i want by editing the file "~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc"

thanks for tackling and succeeding in accomplishing this "proof of concept"'s filled a major hole for me!!

xfce + kwin = kick-a__ combination!

jleclanche commented on 2013-05-26 04:27

Sorry, I don't know; this is more of a proof of concept of Graesslin's work.

Anonymous comment on 2013-05-26 04:24

this is really nice. been wanting it for years. great job. one you know the package to install to use the settings manager? so that one can enable and disable kwin's features. the app that's similar to ccsm for compiz?
