KDE Frameworks 5 and Plasma 2 co-installability

It should be possible to install a kde frameworks 5 runtime alonside a kdelibs 4 runtime so apps can use either one

Many paths have changed by default so there is no clash

  • kdelibs 4 CONFIG_INSTALL_DIR: /usr/share/config
  • kf5 CONFIG_INSTALL_DIR: /etc/xdg
  • kdelibs 4 DATA_INSTALL_DIR: /usr/share/apps
  • kf5 DATA_INSTALL_DIR: /usr/share

HTML_INSTALL_DIR does clash as /usr/share/doc/HTML to allow khelpcentre to find docs from both kdelibs4 land and kf5 land


  • /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kioslave/ will clash unless distros change docs install path (as debian does)



  • /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kdebugdialog will clash, but is it even used? there's no .desktop file
