Thread: kdevelop4 project -> new project option not seen

  1. #1

    Default kdevelop4 project -> new project option not seen

    Hi,

    I just started using KDE and this is also my first time using open-SUSE, so hi there.

    I installed kdevelop4, but the project -> new project option was missing from the menus.

    I found this link addressing the problem. Here is quote from that link:
    Lets say I have packages for KDE4.2 beta2 from my distribution, which install into /usr. So I have /usr/lib/libkdecore.so.4.2.0 and /usr/share/kde4/services and so on. This means, KDE4.2 uses /usr as so-called prefix. I then compiled and installed both kdevplatform and kdevelop into my home directory, so its in $HOME/kde4. I have $HOME/kde4/lib/libkdevplatforminterfaces.so.1.0.0 and $HOME/kde4/share/kde4/services/kdevappwizard.desktop. So the prefix for kdevelop4 is $HOME/kde4. KDEDIRS is simply a list of such prefixes, so I set it to be $HOME/kde4:/usr via export KDEDIRS=$HOME/kde4:/usr in a bash.
    So I did the following:
    Code:
    $:~> su -c 'find / -name *libkdevplatforminterfaces*'
     /usr/lib/libkdevplatforminterfaces.so.1.0.0
     /usr/lib/libkdevplatforminterfaces.so.1
    
    $:~> su -c 'find / -name *libkdecore*'
     /usr/lib/libkdecore.so.5
     /usr/lib/libkdecore.so.5.4.0
     /usr/share/doc/packages/libkdecore4
    
    $:~> su -c 'find / -name *kdevappwizard*'
     /usr/lib/kde4/kdevappwizard.so
     /usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo

     /usr/share/locale/pt_BR/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/locale/nds/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/locale/sv/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/locale/gl/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/locale/ca@valencia/LC_MESSAGES/kdevappwizard.mo
     /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdevappwizard
     /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdevappwizard/kdevappwizard.rc
     /usr/share/kde4/services/kdevappwizard.desktop
     /home/bhargava/.kde4/share/apps/kdevappwizard
    
    $:~> export KDEDIRS=/usr:/usr/lib:/usr/lib/kde4
    $:~> kbuildsycoca4
    But there was no effect. How do I get this working.


    Also is there a way to do only "pure c" in kdevelop.

    Thanks,
    bhargava.

    welcome....how did you install kdevelop4? (you say this openSUSE is
    new to you)...i can _guess_ you installed from source or found an RPM
    somewhere, or what?

    anyway, since the fault you describe is due to a missing plugin, i can
    _guess_ that you didn't use YaST or zypper (the two best openSUSE
    ways) to install all the bits and pieces..

    i would uninstall what you did, and then open YaST, go Software
    Management and search on kdevelop4, and you will see a list of many
    bits (14 here) install all you need...and, see if your problem goes away..

    good luck, and again: -=welcome=-

    Hi DenverD,

    I installed it using the software management in yast. Anyways just to recheck I uninstalled it again (using yast), removed config files from ./kde4/config and ./kde4/apps , went back to yast -> software management searched for kdevelop, list showed me 5 packages I selected kdevelop4 and kdevelop4-plugins-php, kdevelop4-lang was automatically selected (as dependency). opened kdevelop again but did not find the required option (project -> new project) there. Can there be anyother problem? Like I said in the previous post this is the only link I found that answers the question.

    Again back to the same question how do I resolve this.

    Thank you.

    to me it sounds like you are not being offered all the packages you
    need, probably because of your selection of repos which are enabled
    and updating...so, lets see the output of entering the following into
    a terminal

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    and copy/paste the output back to this thread using the instructions
    here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    and, don't forget to tell us what operating system/version and desktop
    environment/version you are using..

    Hi DenverD,

    well, truth is i am disappointed because i expected to not see what i
    saw.....and, i can't really figure out why you are offered five
    packages when you search for kdevelop4 in YaST and i am offered 14!

    see: http://www.imagebam.com/image/bbf653121418127

    the only thing i can _guess_ is that i am running KDE4.5.5 and those
    repos are still enabled and refreshing

    see: http://www.imagebam.com/image/6f5b94121418129

    now, i am NOT suggesting you should move from KDE4.4.4 to 4.5.5, and
    if you do i am sure not suggesting that will solve your problem...but,
    it *might*..

    before you decide, read the caveat in my sig...and, if you do decide
    to move to a later KDE release you need to search and find _the_ way
    to do that...it is here in these fora, somewhere....there is a search
    page which should help you find it....

    AND, there are many here who are running KDE4.6.x, some with mixed
    success...and other claiming it is better than sliced bread!

    one last hint: backup

    oh, and i read those blogs and wonder if you actually followed *all*
    steps in both of them, without success ??

    Well, can't do anything about it then. Might be the reason. That is OK. I think I can live without using kdevelop.

    No I don't plan on doing this. I love the way the current one looks. I don't want to change it now.

    I did all that was written there.


    Now, can you suggest any other IDE for C/C++ dev in kde.

    Thanks.

    I can not help you with your issue but running openSUSE 11.3 with
    upgrades gives me a "release 3" for kdevelop. As far as the New Project
    option, my kdevelop shows from the menu Project -> New from template and
    then lists a few templates for new projects.

    You can program no GUI C++ programs using cmake which must be installed
    and was not required to install kdevelop.

    Hope that helps you.
