Secondly, there are large numbers of runtime interdependencies to worry about. This page attempts to ease packaging KDE-Telepathy in a useful way by explaining these issues. Upstream Packages Several upstream packages are essential for KDE-Telepathy to work. These are the ones encountered as dependencies in a normal compilation: telepathy-qt4 >= LATEST (currently 0.9.2.1, Build and Runtime Dependency) telepathy-mission-control >= 5.7.9 (Runtime Dependency) QJson build dependency for ktp-auth-handler. qt-gstreamer for building ktp-call-ui. telepathy-logger if you ware going to compile telepathy-logger-qt. We're also using some bits from kdelibs 4.7.0 (Build and Runtime Dependency). The IM networks that KDE-Telepathy can connect to are decided by which Telepathy Connection Managers are installed. These are runtime only dependencies, but which ones are installed will decide what IM networks KDE-Telepathy supports. The following are the ones we recommend - whether they are installed optionally or required is, of course, up to you. telepathy-gabble 0.13.7 (for Jabber support, including Google Talk and Facebook, might very probably crash with earlier versions) telepathy-haze (for all the other protocols, as supported by libpurple). It seems like telepathy-farstream should be compiled before telepathy-qt for compilation of ktp-call-ui to proceed. KDE-Telepathy Packages The different components of KDE-Telepathy are housed in separate git repositories on projects.kde.org. Some of these components are currently recommended to use. Others are not yet ready to be installed by users. Ready Components These components have reached a level of maturity where they are interesting to users. We recommend providing these components at the current time. Name Description Dependencies ktp-common-internals Internal library telepathy-qt ktp-accounts-kcm Account management KCM ktp-common-internals ktp-approver KDED module that shows a notification when somebody starts a chat with you ktp-common-internals ktp-text-ui Text chat application ktp-common-internals ktp-contact-list Contact list application - Also provides icons and other data files that are shared among the other applications ktp-common-internals ktp-kded-integration-module Workspace integration module - provides several plugins like auto-away, the infamous 'Now listening to...' and also an error handler (important!!) ktp-common-internals ktp-presence-applet Plasma widget for setting your online presence - acts as the central system tray icon of traditional IM clients ktp-common-internals ktp-filetransfer-handler Background application for handling file tranfers ktp-common-internals ktp-auth-handler Background application for handling passwords and ssl certificates ktp-common-internals ktp-send-file Dolphin/konqueror context menu plugin for sending files easily to contacts ktp-common-internals, ktp-filetransfer-handler (at runtime) ktp-contact-applet Plasma applet for displaying contacts ktp-common-internals ktp-call-ui Voice and Video chat with contacts ktp-common-internals ktp-contact-runner Show contact in KRunner ktp-common-internals telepathy-logger-qt Provides support for loading saved message logs ktp-common-internals, telepathy-logger, qt-glib Required components for basic functionality: ktp-accounts-kcm, ktp-contact-list, ktp-text-ui, ktp-auth-handler, ktp-kded-integration-module Highly recommended components (should be installed by default): ktp-approver, ktp-presence-applet, ktp-call-ui, ktp-filetransfer-handler, telepathy-logger-qt, ktp-contact-runner Optional components: ktp-send-file, ktp-contact-applet Experimental Components We have several other components under development, however, unless they are listed above we do not recommend packaging them. This is because they are subject to major changes/removal at any time, and are not ready for end users yet. Note about accounts-kcm-plugins Our 0.1.0 release had an extra package called telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm-plugins. These plugins have now been merged to the main telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm package and are no longer shipped separately. Release Tarballs The latest release is the 0.5.3 Tarballs can be found at the KDE ftp mirrors: http://download.kde.org/download.php?url=unstable/kde-telepathy/0.5.3/src/ Distributions Here is a list of known packaging efforst for various distributions.
