< KTpRevision as of 17:53, 23 June 2014 by Andrea (talk | contribs) (→Using an existing kdesrc-build)(diff) ← Older revision | Latest revision (diff) | Newer revision → (diff) These instructions assume that you already know how to build KDE stuff from source. Check the "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. Contents 1 Prerequisites 1.1 QtGstreamer 1.2 Ubuntu build deps 1.3 Arch build deps 2 Recommended installation 2.1 Making Changes 2.2 Updating 3 Using an existing kdesrc-build 4 Troubleshooting 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 setup the kde: prefix in Git, if you have not done so already. QtGstreamer In order to build the call window application, you will need the Qt bindings for GStreamer. Your distribution will probably provide packages, or you can build from git: git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/qt-gstreamer 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: 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 Arch build deps sudo pacman -S perl-libwww perl-json perl-xml-parser boost Recommended installation This method is based on a scratch of David Edmundson which is located 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 this: git clone git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/davidedmundson/ktp-bootstrap.git cd ktp-bootstrap sh install.sh 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/telepathy 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): cmake-options -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/qmake-qt4 Similarly, if you have both Python 3 and Python 2 installed, you may need to point to the python2 path: cmake-options -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python2 Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=KTp/Getting_Set_Up&oldid=38204" This page was last edited on 23 June 2014, at 17:53.
