← KTp/Getting Set Up You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason: The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Users, Administrators, trusted, KDEDevelopers. You can view and copy the source of this page. These instructions assume that you already know how to build KDE stuff from source. Check the "[http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE_Applications building KDE applications page]" for more help with that. The rest of this page will just tell you what to build and where to get it from. ==Prerequisites== You will need KDE 4.10 or 4.9. We do not require latest git KDE. You will need to install several cross-desktop Telepathy components. Packages of the following from your distribution should do fine. * telepathy-mission-control-5 * telepathy-gabble for Jabber, GTalk and Facebook Chat support * other Telepathy connection managers if you want to try out other protocols ** telepathy-haze for icq, msn, yahoo, aim and all the others that Pidgin/libpurple supports ** telepathy-rakia for sip * telepathy-logger (for the contact list) * kdepimlibs (devel packages; for kpeople) You will also need to follow the steps to [[Sysadmin/GitKdeOrgManual#Let_Git_rewrite_URL_prefixes|setup the kde: prefix in Git]], if you have not done so already. === QtGstreamer === In order to build the [[#Call window App|call window application]], you will need the [http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/modules/qt-gstreamer.html Qt bindings for GStreamer]. Your distribution will probably provide packages, or you can build from git: <syntaxhighlight lang="bash"> git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/qt-gstreamer </syntaxhighlight> === Ubuntu build deps === While using some Ubuntu distributions you would like to have these packages installed (they are critical to build Ktp on your machine) from apt: <syntaxhighlight lang="bash"> sudo apt-get install doxygen graphviz libfarstream-0.1-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev libqt4-dev libtelepathy-farstream-0.4-dev libtelepathy-glib-dev pkg-config cmake debhelper kdelibs5-dev libtelepathy-logger-dev libtelepathy-logger-qt4-dev libtelepathy-qt4-dev pkg-kde-tools bison cmake flex libqt4-dev libqtgstreamer-dev libtelepathy-glib-dev libtelepathy-logger-dev libxml2-dev python python-dev libxml-parser-perl librpc-xml-perl libqjson-dev libqca2-dev libqca2-plugin-ossl kdepim-dev libqtwebkit-dev </syntaxhighlight> === Arch build deps === <syntaxhighlight lang="bash"> sudo pacman -S perl-libwww perl-JSON perl-xml-parser </syntaxhighlight> ==Recommended installation== This method is based on a scratch of David Edmundson which is located [http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=scratch%2Fdavidedmundson%2Fktp-bootstrap.git here]. You may pull it on your local machine and run '''install.sh'''. Before going forward, make sure that you have configured your Git configuration file for KDE prefix, if not follow [https://community.kde.org/Sysadmin/GitKdeOrgManual#Let_Git_rewrite_URL_prefixes this]: <syntaxhighlight lang="bash"> git clone git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/davidedmundson/ktp-bootstrap.git cd ktp-bootstrap sh install.sh </syntaxhighlight> As soon as your installation has finished you can start Ktp by choosing '''Instant Messaging Contact List''' from the menu of your system. Alternatively, you may want to discover source yourself, e.g. if you are planning to contribute. Then, you can go path '''~/ktp/src/ktp-contact-list''' (git repository is already set there!) ===Making Changes=== When you first open kdevelop for the first time select the CMakeLists file in ~/ktp/src/<project>/CMakeLists.txt when asked to specify the build directory select ~/ktp/build/<project>/ NOT the default option. This will mean kdevelop will use your existing install set up and environment and any installations will be kept local. If you are ever prompted for your root password for installations you are doing something wrong. ===Updating=== Run ./update-ktp from your ~/ktp directory. For extra functionality and arguments please read http://kdesrc-build.kde.org/documentation/ == Using an existing kdesrc-build == To use kdesrc-build to build KDE Telepathy type kdesrc-build extragear/ktp Typing just "telepathy" includes additional modules from playground which are not really needed. It may be desirable to also build TelepathyQt, which can be done by adding the following module module telepathy-qt repository git://anongit.freedesktop.org/telepathy/telepathy-qt4 branch master end module Because we rely on dbus activation we need to make sure our files are in the XDG dbus paths /when dbus loads/. there are two ways to do this; either copy/link these dbus files to /usr/share/dbus-1/ or make sure XDG paths are set immediately at login, such as adding them in /etc/profile.d. ==Troubleshooting== If you have both qt4 and qt5 installed, you may need tell kdesrc-build to use qt4 by including the following in the relevant kdesrc-buildrc (global section): <syntaxhighlight lang="cmake"> cmake-options -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/qmake-qt4 </syntaxhighlight> Similarly, if you have both Python 3 and Python 2 installed, you may need to point to the python2 path: <syntaxhighlight lang="cmake"> cmake-options -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python2 </syntaxhighlight> Return to KTp/Getting Set Up.
