Migrating to KDE5 Soon (7 comment)

Hello all,

Here is some news from Gentoo maintainers:

KDE Workspaces 4.11 has reached end of life and is no longer supported by upstream. It is therefore recommended for all users to upgrade to KDE Plasma 5.

A detailed upgrade guide is available [1], but in most cases it is enough to switch to the new desktop/plasma profile, update @world, and emerge kde-plasma/plasma-meta:

eselect profile list
eselect profile set <target>
emerge --ask --changed-use --newrepo --deep world
emerge --ask --verbose kde-plasma/plasma-meta

If you normally use KDM to launch Plasma, note that it is no longer supported. Upstream recommends x11-misc/sddm instead which is pulled in by plasma-meta by default. OpenRC users should edit /etc/conf.d/xdm and update DISPLAYMANAGER. Systemd users should run: systemctl reenable sddm.service

Due to an an evolution of KDE upstream's release process [2], the traditional monolithic KDE 4 release is now split into three distinct components. This means that KDE Applications are now separate from the Plasma desktop and older KDE 4-based applications will continue to function as normal inside Plasma 5.
KDE Workspaces 4.11 will remain in the tree for a reasonable time, but be warned that it is unmaintained and may cause conflicts with newer versions of KDE Applications.

Testing vs Stable

Added by Elena GAVRILOVA over 1 year ago

In Calculate Linux 14 and earlier, all binary updates were stored in a single Git repository, whatever the flavour. Packages were thus updated at the same time as the Portage and overlays master branch was. Back then, as very few hosting platforms allowed automatic modifications, we only used two physical mirrors (the second one was for backup). It was not a good solution in terms of reliability, as well as for testing purposes. In fact, we could only test packages when building them; binary packages

Calculate Linux Scratch 15 KDE released

Added by Alexander Tratsevskiy almost 2 years ago

Released on November 12, 2015

We are proud to announce a new release of Calculate Linux Scratch 15 featuring KDE 5, alias CLSK.

CLSK provides a basic set of KDE 5 packages that were fully ported to Qt5, including the standard window manager. It can be used for building a system based on the new Plasma along with both KDE software and
third-party, namely CLDX applications. With the Breeze-like theme we specially designed for use with the Gtk framework, Gtk2 / 3 and KDE4 applications almost look as if they were native Qt5 features.

Unique package instances in binary repos

Calculate is on a three-step way to a better system organization. After profiles unification and making lightweight CL versions inherit from the main ones, the last but not the least was simplifying the repositories structure. Let us see what it is all about.
