I'm trying to use your updated packages, but I have several issues.
I updated from the older January version (which was crashing in a loop),
and removed $HOME/.*5, so I assume I'm starting from a clean configuration.
thanks for the info. I was glad I finally managed to build the kde5-* packages
yesterday and didn't give it much try yet.
I first had to modify /opt/kde5/bin/startkde as it wants to launch
/opt/kde5/libexec/start_kdeinit_wrapper instead of
/usr/libexec/start_kdeinit_wrapper from kf5-kinit package.
This can be fixed by packaging
Then, starting the "KDE Plasma Workspace 2" session from kdm, I get the
splash screen, then the desktop background, then a black screen (with
I noticed plasma wasn't started, and the use of /usr/etc in a few kf5-*
packages looks strange, so I copied :
- /usr/etc/xdg/* to /opt/kde5/etc/xdg
- /usr/etc/dbus-1/* to /etc/dbus-1
This is definitely a packaging issue
Now plasma-shell starts, but it crashes immediately, and I still have a
black screen after the splash screen.
The crash is in ShellManager::updateShell(), qFatal("We have no shell
It looks for /usr/share/plasma/shells/*/contents/loader.qml, but the
files from kde5-workspace package are in /opt/kde5.
Since it's CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, I think kf5-* and kde5-* packages
should have the same prefix.
This will be more tricky :-) I'll talk to upstream and see whether we can come
up with some solution for frameworks and Plasma living in different prefixes.
