M6 -- KDE4-printer-applet still uses kde3lib3 ??

Has anyone noticed what happens when you select the kde4-printer-applet for download? For some reason it downloads kde3 library files?



The last time I read about a KDE4 print manager was here

Print manager « Dantti’s Blog

print(“progress…”); « Dantti’s Blog


I went to [KDE] Index of /trunk/playground/base/print-manager](http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/base/print-manager/)

However, he only had a README file and nothing else. Nothing to compile.

I guess he’s redesigning it.

I’m not redesigning, it just went to git.kde.org:smiley:
If you read the README file you would know :stuck_out_tongue:

Welcome to our forum Dantti
You are correct. It haas gone to git.kde.org :wink:

I like your printer applet. Use it every day!

I installed kde4-printer-applet but it won’t launch. From the terminal I get:

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'StackedWidget'

It required about 20 other packages to resolve dependencies.

Edit: There’s already a bug report about this and an update has been submitted to Factory.

In order for it to work, it must download kde3 libraries.

It’s good that you submitted a bug report. I thought that most
authors have ported their kde3 apps to kde4 by now.

If a new rpm has not been created through OBS, you can always download
the files from Gitorious.

I didn’t submit the bug report, but the bug and the resolution were both submitted yesterday. Pretty fast work. Most of the dependencies I had were for python and gnome libraries. I don’t remember seeing any KDE3 packages but they might have already been installed.

Very fast work! Next time, before I select the printer-applet, I’ll deselect OSS and see if I get a message.

A dry-run gives me

The one package that brought a smile to my face was system-config-printer. I haven’t used that Red Hat utility since ~2001 :slight_smile:

I remember that package was one of the dependencies for me too. That app will launch. It’s the KDE4 printer applet that fails to launch until the patched python-qt4 is available.
