Funtoo KDE Project
KDE 5.24 is now live in the Funtoo next-release and available to beta testing for Funtoo next users.
05 July 2022
KDE is a new project to upgrade all the kde-kit packages to the latest version of KDE Plasma, integrate Funtoo metatools into kde-kit, and eventually bring the KDE to a "Grade A" Funtoo support Desktop Environment.
What are the Benefits?
This is part of a large collaborative community effort to bring the best in class and latest Desktop Environments to Funtoo Linux powered by Funtoo Metatools to ensure we have Grade A Funtoo Support Matrix for this DE. This means that the DE has reached three major milestones:
- We have a Funtoo Project tracking the development with an active maintainer for the Desktop Environment
- There is an official Funtoo kit dedicated to the Desktop Environment containing all Funtoo Metatools powered packages
- There is an official Stage 3 available to all Funtoo Users for the Desktop Environment
What are we Building?
Grade A support of the K Desktop Environment's (KDE) on Funtoo Linux
Funtoo Linux Python Support for KDE
Thanks to Siris's testing prompt, we were able to identify a python2 dependency when installing the kde-plasma-5 mix-in. dev-qt/qtnetwork-5.15.2-r1 depends on net-libs/libproxy-0.4.18, which depends on dev-lang/spidermonkey:68, which contains BDEPEND="dev-lang/python:2.7
