< Plasma
Revision as of 13:59, 25 April 2014 by Jriddell (talk | contribs)

Plasma 2014.6 is a whole new version and won't co-install with Plasma 1. Nevertheless some parts of runtime should co-install so apps using kdelibs4 can run under Plasma Next.

Frameworks Coinstallability page

not co-installable

these overlap with KDELibs 4 equivalents from kde-workspace, no change expected

  • libksysguard
  • ksysguard
  • kinfocenter


clashing files with kde 4's kde-runtime:

  • /usr/share/man/man1/kdesu.1
  • /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kdesu/index.docbook
  • /usr/bin/keditfiletype
  • /usr/share/kde5/services/filetypes.desktop
  • /usr/bin/kmimetypefinder
  • /usr/bin/ktraderclient
  • /usr/bin/kioclient
  • /usr/bin/kdecp
  • /usr/bin/kdemv
  • /usr/bin/kde-open
  • /usr/bin/ksvgtopng
  • /usr/bin/kstart


No reason why this needs to co-install but Martin asked. Clashing files with kde4 kwin:

  • /usr/bin/kwin (due to be renamed?)
  • /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libkdecorations.so
  • libkwinglutils.so.1 (needs sobump anyway?)
  • libkwineffects.so.1 (needs sobump anyway?)
  • libkwinxrenderutils.so.1 (needs sobump anyway?)
  • kwin_update_default_rules can be removed
  • /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav
  • /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kcontrol/windowspecific

Question: why did kwin.png and kcmkwm.png move from apps to actions? They might need renamed apart from this.


  • liboxygen/ clashes and should be renamed https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/117770/
  • kstyle/ oxygen-settings and oxygen-demo should be renamed
  • cursors/ all clash and should be renamed (or removed, why do we ship multiple cursors?)
  • kwin-decorations/ oxygen-shadow-demo should be renamed
  • sounds/ should all be renamed
