Probably you already know that KOffice is not developed anymore and it’s going to be replaced by Calligra-Suite (if you need some extra info google is your friend). Since Calligra hasn’t been released yet (while writing latest version available is the Beta 4), it can’t be pushed on Frugalware’s main repo. That’s why I decided to set up a wip, just add these lines to your /etc/pacman-g2.conf:
of course change i686 to x86_64 at your needs. You can install the whole set through the calligra
package, or just install what you need (
pacman-g2 -Sl melkotesting should give you a list
of the packages available on my wip).
Another interesting software being developed is Telepathy-KDE, it’s still very
young though I’m pretty sure that it’ll be a valid alternative to kopete (that as far as I know
is a bit neglected). Telepathy-KDE 0.2.0 is available on my wip, you can install the whole
pacman-g2 -S --regex telepathy-kde or install just what you need, here are some hints from its wiki page:
- Required components for basic functionality: telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm, telepathy-kde-contact-list, telepathy-kde-text-ui, telepathy-auth-handler, telepathy-kde-integration-module
- Highly recommended components: telepathy-kde-approver, telepathy-kde-presence-applet, telepathy-kde-presence-dataengine, telepathy-kde-filetransfer-handler
You may also need some extra dep, like telepathy-gabble for jabber support or telepathy-butterfly for msn support.
As for Calligra you can find Telepathy-KDE on my wip, for any extra info look here (and through google as well).
- it’s not stable software, so use it at your own risk!
- not being in the main repository means that this software is not officially supported by Frugalware, for this reason please don’t fill ticket on our bug report about Calligra, Telepathy-KDE or any extra software that you may find on my wip
- for any problem, suggestion, recommandation feel free to contact me (melko), I’m always available on irc in the #frugalware channel on freenode or, if you prefer, send me a mail (you can find it in the AUTHORS page on frugalware.org)
