  1. Hello,

    Could you please do a release for Kubunt karmic as well?

    Thanks and regards,

  2. Done! I just published it on my PPA, to install it add this to your system’s software sources:

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/daniele.domenichelli/backports/ubuntu karmic main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/daniele.domenichelli/backports/ubuntu karmic main

    Then just just follow the instruction for jaunty

    I cannot test it, because I’m still on jaunty…
    Let me please know if it works!

  3. Would you be kind enough and build a dgb package for this as well so we can report bugs? Honestly I don’t really know what’s behind the scenes, I mean in building a repo but if that’s not too much work, I’m using KDevelop a lot and I would like to contribute at least with some bug reports to make it better.
    Thanks in advance,

  4. There is a kdevplatform-dbg package containing debugging symbols for kdevplatform library
    In the help menu you should also have “report bug” and report bug windows should appear if kdevelop crashes
    Finally, to report a bug you can go here

  5. Thanks for the great package. I really appreciate the effort. I am a big Kdevelop fan and this made it easy to test the new features. It works fantastically on Karmic.

    I know that you have gone above and beyond to provide this package, but if at all possible would you be able to add the new PHP code support functionality ? I read one of the developers blogs which showed the changes and it did look mighty impressive.

    Thanks again.


  6. Dude, really thanks for this. I am another KDevelop fan and I need KDevelop with PHP support, so my additional question is: does it include php support or does it need an extra package?

    Thx again.

  7. Sorry, I was on holiday last two weeks!
    I thought that PHP support was included with the sources…
    I’ll check it as soon as I can in the next few days

  8. No, sorry for my insistently. Understand me, just I am so happy with KDevelop4, but I code PHP, and that script -although beta- would increase my productivity at work, and would make more easy my code hours.

    I tried to compile it with the web instructions, but had some problems and I am not a hardcore linux user (yet :P). When i read about your reppositories a divine hope comes to me, but I get a bit dissapointed when the PHP plugin wasn’t there :/

    Now, seriously, take your time. It isn’t SO urgent, and It’s enough for me knowing I will have It πŸ™‚

    Sorry about my english, I don’t know if I write correctly.

  9. Ok, I confirm that the plugin wasn’t included… πŸ™

    But I also found that kdevelop beta7, kdevelop-php beta2 and kdevelop-phpdocs beta2 were released a few days ago and can be downloaded from here πŸ™‚

    This means that I’m building beta7 for both jaunty and karmic first, then I’ll try to build the php plugin…

    By the way I’m still using jaunty at the moment, but I’m planning to switch to karmic in Christmas holidays, that means that I’ll probably stop building packages for jaunty on my PPA (unless someone asks me to do it and it doesn’t take too much time)

  10. In my opinion, about your version change, you are doing the correct. I have installed in several PCs and works really good, better than Jaunty in my case πŸ™‚

    Did KDevevelop beta7 and php plugin beta2 released already? I’m suscribed to KDevelop feed and not said nothing about it. I have just see their web (http://www.kdevelop.org/) and there isn’t entry about it. I’m interested in the changelog.

    And about the packaging, take your time. I’m glad just knowing there will be a reppository offering a .deb with that packages πŸ™‚

    Finally, as I said, I’m using Karmic. When I added them to my sources.list and tried to install KDevelop, I had some errors about the version used to compile, and the version available in official reppos, so I installed the Jaunty ones. Just wanted you know it.


    1. Soz, can’t edit.

      “…I had some errors about the version used to compile, and the version available in official reppos…”

      I mean the version of some deppendencies packages, not KDevelop.

  11. Errors in version of packages can be caused by missing software sources dependencies…
    I just added this page that lists repositories that should be added to be sure that all dependencies are satisfied.

    Anyway kdevelop beta7, kdevelop-php beta2 and kdevelop-phpdocs beta2 for jaunty and karmic are now on my PPA… Enjoy πŸ˜€

    Now I can go to sleep happy… WHAT 5 AM?!? Goodnight!

  12. Just this morning I give a try to twitter (I’m not very friendly with social networks :P) to try in the near future moblin, and when I suscribed to KDECommunity twitter I saw the announcement.

    Dude, seriosly, thx for compile them. I added the other reppos and now it installed correctly in Karmic.

    But… just one thing, soz if I am a bit pain, I’m trying KDevelop beta7 but can’t see the use of PHP plugin. When I type (or use ctrl+space) “mysql” the IDE dont show all the possibilities, just the commands that appear in the code file starting with that (not new). I have looking for in the options and menu and not see nothing about the plugin or how to activate it.

    I’ve tried to install and search some package like “kdevelop-php” with aptitude but don’t find it. And yes, I have done an “aptitude update” previously. Am I doing something wrong?

    I hope don’t broke your happyness πŸ˜›


    1. Shit! Forgive about not installed packages. I added the new reppos to a backup sources.list, not the original. Soz.

      Now kdevelop, kdevelop-php and kdevelop-phpdocs are installed, but dont see nothing new in KDevelop when I code. The same example of “mysql…” commands.

      How can I activate the plugin or see how it works?

      PD: You are my anticipated Santa of this year πŸ˜›

      1. From what I was able to see until now:

        php plugin adds a new php template in Project -> New from template
        php documents plugin adds documentation on the right side of the window in documentation tab

        But there is probably something else…

        > You are my anticipated Santa of this year πŸ˜›
        Ho, ho ho! Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€

  13. Yep, I saw some hours ago the documation. I suppose the auto-completition isn’t ready in beta2. Let’s see if we can use in next releases.

    I will be alert to updates from your reppos and hope the include it soon.

    Thx again, and I hope you have a good and interesant new year πŸ™‚
