My KDE week

Week 22: KDE at openSUSE

Posted on: June 5, 2010

Greetings! Second week of the KDE at openSUSE blog. We are now on PlanetSUSE as well, so hello to all its readers. And since you did not get the last post: this blog is a short summary of what’s happening at openSUSE regarding KDE and it tries to give all those that bring KDE to the openSUSE users the credit they deserve.

From the repos:

  • Thanks to dirk and tittiatcoke UNSTABLE got updated to .82
  • alin’s simon package (0.3a1) was copied to Playground
  • anubisg1 updated acetoneiso2 to 2.2.1 (Community)
  • benstein updated kaffeine to 1.0 (Playground)
  • tittiatcoke updated kdepim45 daily and amarok to 2.3.1 (UNSTABLE, Community), added bluedevil 0.0.svn1132921 (Playground) and phonon-vlc 2.0git20100601 (UNSTABLE)
  • tgoettlicher updated kupdapplet to 0.9.16 (Factory)

From the community:

  • cb400f has written a little HOWTO for disabling OOo’s KDE 4 integration:

The KDE 4 integration that OpenOffice.org has is a bit buggy, and it’s not really obvious how to disable it in case of problems. So here’s how you can do it in openSUSE.

Simply put “export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome” in ~/.profile (for a single user) or /etc/profile.local (for all users). If these files don’t exist on your system, simply create them.

Setting this environment variable means OOo won’t integrate as well in KDE visually and in terms of the file dialog – but the Oxygen icons will remain, and you will get rid of the bugs. To get the KDE integration back, either revert the changes above, or change the variable from “gnome” to “kde4″.

The above should hold true for other distributions too – possibly with minor adjustments needed.

  • wstephenson worked  this week on opensuse marketing, organised preparations for hack week V workshops and presented on writing plasmoids in javascript.  Further he spent time on fixing akonadi bugs and general 11.3 cleanup.

Seems that the 3.2.1 OOO release are just working fine with the kde integration.
Nothing wrong during the last ten days.
Open files dialog box (kde version) are really more confortable.
