Some issues with KDE4 section

Reported by: Armin K Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.9
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


While looking at old KDE4 packages, I noticed some issues:

First of all, some apps from old 15.04 or 14.12 aren't available from the current link. The correct link is now:

This applies to at least old oxygen-icons package.

Second, some packages in KDE4 additional packages have been updated to 15.12.x ones, which are now KF5 based and won't work in the KDE4 environment. Such are ark, libkdcraw and libkexiv2.

For the KF5 versions, I hit this last night on ark. In trunk we are using 15.08.2 for libkexiv2 and libkdcraw, a quick look suggests those are still kde4 (I'll find out soon).

Of the 15.12.1 versions in trunk, I think I have already built kde-runtime and kde-baseapps on the other machine, and all of kmix, libkcddb, okular appear to still be kde4.

For ark, 15.04.3 seems to be the last kde4 version, 15.08.0 is KF5. I got it from

Regarding broken URLs:

kdepim's link to osuosl is broken (although kdepim-runtime works), but both are at which looks more "official"

A few packages will build with either qt4 or qt5. The CMakeLists.txt will tell what version(s) of qt are needed.

Giving this back to the book - Bruce has told me that all the packages build for him without any of the fixes or version changes that I need in my x86_64 build (I do not have qt5). I am now trying to rebuild qt4 (on top of mariadb) using -j1 : that is obviously going to take a long time, if it succeeds, and Bruce sounded ready to tag and fix links.
