Description:

Apper is the KDE interface for PackageKit (aka KPackageKit)

Apper is able to manage packages, applications and updates in a cross-distribution way thanks to the PackageKit project. Providing Linux users a single application that they can learn and use in whatever distribution they are.

Hope you enjoy Apper, and please report bugs, make wishes so we can improve this application.

BUGS goes to bugs.kde.org

-----------------------------------------------------

Apper itself can do nothing without PackageKit.
So have it installed before.
-----------------------------------------------------

Hi dantti,

your programm looks really great, but unfortunately it doesnt run on my system (Debian sid with kde from experimentall).

The compiling and installation of packagekit 2.2 and kpackagekit was running without problems. But if I click on "Add and Remove Software" the application crashes. Maybe its a packagekit problem. If i run the command packagekitd as root i got the following output:

TI:05:45:21 TH:0x807a3e8 FI:pk-main.c FN:main,266
- cannot continue, backend invalid

hmmm i'll try to see if packagekit having an invalid backend make the gui crash...
On my Debian with kde from experimental too i use this line to compile packagekit:
./autogen.sh --prefix=/home/daniel/PackageKit/pkbin/ --with-security-framework=polkit --with-default-backend=apt --enable-apt --enable-dummy --enable-local --enable-tests --enable-gtk-doc

after this going well i myself COPY (don't move) the files in that pkbin dir to it's location, i don't recommend you using /usr in the prefix of packagekit cause it have some fedora specifc stuff that will make your debian dirs a little different.

there is a command pkcon that allows you to try packagekit:
pkcon search name k3b
if this one runs ok then probably my app has a problem...

Thanks for your quick reponse. I have set the DefaultBackend to apt and i have run the following commands:

make distclean
./autogen.sh --prefix=/home/xadras/PackageKit-0.2.2/pkbin/ --with-security-framework=polkit --with-default-backend=apt --enable-apt --enable-dummy --enable-local --enable-tests --enable-gtk-doc
make
su
make install

but there is no change:

packagekitd
TI:10:06:56 TH:0x807a3e8 FI:pk-main.c FN:main,266
- cannot continue, backend invalid


pkcon search name amarok

Command failed

try editing this file: /home/xadras/PackageKit-0.2.2/pkbin/etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf

on pkbin dir do something like this:
cp -r etc* /etc/
cp -r include/* /usr/include/
cp -r lib/* /usr/lib/
cp -r share/* /usr/share/
cp -r var/* /var/

at the end restart dbus

did you get the git version on the pk web site?
are you sure you have all the deps?
here is a list of what deps i remember i had to install in order to compile pk, also make sure after the autogen you see the list were apt backend is enabled and the default
if none work try #packagekit on freenode for an online help :)

./autogen.sh --prefix=/home/daniel/projetos/PackageKit/pkbin/ --with-security-framework=polkit --with-default-backend=apt --enable-apt --enable-dummy --enable-local --enable-tests --enable-gtk-doc

required
libapt-pkg-doc
libglib2.0-dev
libsqlite3-dev
libdbus-1-dev
libdbus-glib-1-dev
policykit
python-apt
libapt-pkg-dev
libpolkit-dbus-dev
libpolkit-dev

Good luck

You're right the app will crash if the backend is invalid, try to use that line to compile packagekit and also make sure that the ..prefix/etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf has the line default backend=apt
i'll try to see how to warn the user that packagekit is not working or running.
Thanks.

I really like KPackageKit and I would like it to see grow even better.

I could probably contribute if time permits, but for the time being, I would like to know where I should file bug reports and ask a couple of questions.

So, doesn't KPackageKit have an official web site or an official project page?

Well a kind of official website is www.packagekit.org, i have just got a kde svn account so i'll probably put it there as soon as possible, but you can use this space here to post bug reports or send me messages.
At the end of the week i'll release a new version with file install support so if you have some bugs i can try to fix till there.
Thanks.

Dude, when compiling software always install the *-dev files, so libpolkit-dbus-dev is needed :)

Oh, i just figured out what is your problem.

You don't have packagekit working. If it's really installed make sure you have a version 0.3 or greater.

 How to translate kpackagekit?

 
 by deadbabylon on: Oct 16 2008
 
Score 50%

We'll likely want to make kpackagekit the default graphical package manager in the upcoming release of Fedora (10) (on the KDE side, of course). But one problem ATM is that kpackagekit is only available in english and it seems not to be prepared for translations (eg. no .po files are available). But there seems to be some i18n markups in the source.
So my question is: What's the best way to translate kpackagekit? Or do you want to release a minor update with proper .po files in the meantime?

Hi, well this is a question i've been asking to the guys that are already packaging it to fedora (btw are you?), the thing is: i added this "markup" everywhere so it's ready to be translated, but i don't know how translations works :P
i never translated a program nor created a program to be translated, i can also translate it to portuguese br, but i don't know from where to start....
Any help is really appreciate, we also got a new contributor who might know how to do that, i'll ask him.
Cheers.

No, I'm not the packager. For the translations we need the .pot templates. Because you've added kpackagekit to Playground they are now available:
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/l10n-kde4/templates/messages/playground-sysadmin/kpackagekit.pot?revision=871981&view=markup
But before starting the translations the misspellings should be fixed first.

I for myself also don't have much experience with translations. But I think rdieter and/or Kevin_Kofler in #fedora-kde on freenode could help you with that.

Hi, your problem is because you don't have the latest version of packagekit-qt installed. NOTE that this is not shipped anymore with the tar ball so it's best to go to http://maison.mymadcat.com/~madcat/qpackagekit/ and download the last version.

Soon it'll be available at packagekit.org website. in the meanwhile you can grab there.

hmm i have some ppl that compiled fine on opensuse, and the error for me is that i changed some bits in the lib so this is what is look like.
I'd say to you make sure you're installing in /usr try cleaning up your builds, and if none of it helps try #packagekit on free node we can try to help..

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
