Thread: How to make kde-connect and quicklaunch work on Plasma 5.2

  1. #1

    Default How to make kde-connect and quicklaunch work on Plasma 5.2

    Greetings! Just installed Plasma 5.2 on openSUSE 13.2 after waiting for some time for it to mature and it looks quite stable!

    One application which I use most frequently is kde-connect and it doesn't seem to work here. I installed kde-connect from git repo but I have no idea how to make it work. It was working perfectly well on KDE 4.12 and the icon was there in the KDE settings but now I don't see it anywhere in Plasma 5 settings. Any ideas?

    Another plasmoid that I miss here is quicklauch. Anybody knows what can be used in its place as it's doesn't seem like it's been ported yet?

    For Plasma5/systemsettings5 you'd need the KF5 version. It is available as package kdeconnect-kde5 in KDE:Unstable:Extra and in my repo (only use this if you installed Plasma5 from my repo as well).
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/kdeconnect-kde5

    You probably could also install KDE4's systemsettings and use the KDE4 version of kdeconnect though.
    KDE4's systemsettings is contained in the package "kdebase4-workspace-addons", which is co-installable with Plasma5, you can run it with "systemsettings" (the Plasma5 version is called "systemsettings5"). But I think the KDE4 version of "kdeconnect-kde" should add an appropriate entry in the application menu anyway.

    I don't think something similar is available at this point.
    You could probably "misuse" a folderview widget?

    Thanks! kdeconnect5 works perfectly well and I will keep using folderview for now. So, it seems Plasma5 works a little differently and not all notifications on kdeconnect can be seen together by clicking on kdeconnect icon in the system tray like how it was in KDE4.. here the icon also doesn't show. But nothing major, as it shows them in a floating plasmoid for a few seconds.

    How did you manage to get the notifications in the taskbar? I'm still trying to get this to work

    I cannot get it to work - well, notifiacations work, but no taskbar icon and can't browse files on my phone. How did you install it? With 1-click install from software.opensuse.org? Did you have a conflict with libqca, which couldn't be found?

    Well, you lack a lot of information. I doubt anyone can help you at this point...

    What exactly do you mean? kdeconnect maybe?
    I suppose you should tell where you installed it from in the first place.
    And what openSUSE version are using?

    What exact conflict did you get (if any), since you mentioned it?

    What exactly did you try to make it work?

    Your repo list might help as well to spot possible incompatibilties:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    I apologize for the lack of information. I am trying to install kdeconnect-kde5 from KDE:Unstable:Extra repository with 1-click install through software.opensuse.org and I get a conflict that nothing provides libqca-qt5.so.2()(64bit)
    Therefore I installed that from the KDE:applications repo and then kdeconnect-kde5. Pairing went well and notifications seem to work. I also can see my phone in Dolphin but clicking on it does nothing.

    I am on an up to date Opensuse 13.2
