PolicyKit integration:

  • KevinKofler adapted a patch which should work but is not tested yet.
  • It fixes PolicyKit related problems in KDE3 and KDE4.
  • Although these bugs have been reported against either KDE3 or KDE4 they probably affect both versions.
  • KDE4 (#428212: unable to mount partitions in dolphin ):
  • The patch uses "kdesu dbus-send" when HAL returns a PermissionDeniedByPolicy error.
  • KDE3 (#378041: unable to mount removable/ntfs ):
  • The uid is only passed to the 4 filesystems for which HAL allows it without throwing an "unknown error".
  • But HAL would the the better place to fix this by doing one of these:
  • not listing the uid= option as allowed if it's going to error with a "TODO" on it.
  • doing something sensible with uid=, even if it's PermissionDeniedByPolicy for non-root.
  • Because HAL seems to work fine in F7 the patch will be included in F8 only (for KDE3).

Desktop User Guide:

Status of konq-plugins:

  • konq-plugins contains additional plugins for konqueror (mostly from former kdeaddons).
  • The package will be submitted for review ASAP.
  • But it still needs some testing because it's unmaintained upstream.

kmix/mute doesn't work:

  • The bug was not reproducible by other KDE SIG members.
  • So not working muting in kmix seems to be a local/configuration issue.

Open discussion:

  • kaudiocreator:
  • kaudiocreator is too unstable to ship it.
  • So it will be marked as deferred from KDE4Status (so that FeatureKDE4 is able to reach 100%).
  • PackageKit:
  • OpenSuse seems to be developing a KDE4 frontend for PackageKit.
  • But Fedora 9 will ship gnome-packagekit as a frontend.
  • pk-update-icon isn't automatically started at login because it is located in /usr/share/gnome/autostart.
  • Bug #437048 will be re-opened to request moving it to /etc/xdg/autostart.
