Qt 4.7.0 in openSUSE; KDE updates

September 22nd, 2010 by

With the release of Qt 4.7.0 it’s time to use it to build KDE packages destined for openSUSE 11.4. This means that Qt 4.7 will shortly land in KDE:Distro:Factory repositories. In a couple of months’ time it will be followed by betas of the KDE 4.6 releases. If you are using KDF just because it’s the latest KDE release, consider replacing it with KDE:Release:45 now, which will remain 4.5 and Qt 4.6 based.

You can get the latest Qt release with Qt Quick/QML and latest Qt Creator by staying with KDF.

In other KDE related news, Choqok in openSUSE Factory, 11.2 and 11.3 is being updated to 1.0rc3 to fix Twitter authentication. Amarok 2.3.2 is out and packaged in KDF, and will shortly be available for older versions in KDE:UpdatedApps. And KOffice 2.3beta1 is available for testing in KDE:Unstable:Playground. So if you’ve been admiring the Krita art showcase and think you can do better, grab your tablet and the latest code built for stable KDE releases and push some pixels! The new Bluetooth UI for KDE, BlueDevil is in testing in KDF, alongside the new PulseAudio UIs coming in 4.6, and  akonadi-googledata 1.2.0 is in KDE:Extra.

As usual use software.opensuse.org to find the right repo for the KDE version you use or ‘osc repourls <reponame>’ if you prefer not to click.

    Hi Steph,

    First of all, thanks a lot for this useful information. I just a suggestion to make about the OBS repository of KDE. My opinion is that it is time to rearrange the folders and to proceed to a thourough clean-up of the repository, getting by the way rid of some empty folders. I always expect to find in the Factory folder and the other related folders the news compiled versions of the packages. Unfortunately that is not the case for the moment.

    Qt 4.7 on my computer works flawlessly with KDR. Why should one stick at Qt 4.6 ?

    Have a lot of fun.

    Which folders specifically?

  3. What is ‘KDF’ and ‘KDR’ ?

  4. Will Stephenson


    KDF = KDE:Distro:Factory (KDE 4.5 snapshots, built vs Qt 4.7 as of today)

    KDR is no repo I maintain, I guess it’s a typo, i guess he meant to write KDF.

    KDS = KDE:Distro:Stable (11.3 packages of KDE 4.4.)

    KR45 = KDE:Release:45 (KDE 4.5 releases, built vs Qt 4.6)

    KUSC = KDE:Unstable:SC (What will become KDE 4.6)

    KUP = KDE:Unstable:Playground (Random unstable package snapshots and betas)

    HTH = Hope That Helps

    sorry for noob question, but how to install Qt 4.7? my spec: suse 11.3, 64 bits, kde 4.5.1 r3.

  6. stasik

    after some time, came across it.
    1. download from: http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/embedded-linux-cpp
    2. follow instructions: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/qt-embedded-install.html

    p.s. it will take a good while for “gmake”…!
