kde5-plasma for Nemesis-06-04-2017

Post#1 by francois » 10 Apr 2017, 03:23

Necessary packages for minimal install with wifi and dual display:

Code: Select all

sudo pman -S plasma-desktop kscreen dolphin konsole kwrite plasma-nm kdeplasma-addons ark
Useful additionnal packages:
sudo pacman -Sy manjaro-printer

Other packages:
**to be listed from fanthom kde4**

Packages for my specific installation:
brother printer installer https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=6713
gant icon theme https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=6829

Booting without a login manager directly into the desktop.
Modifying:
1) ~/.xinitrc
to boot kde by inserting at the end of the file exec startkde4 with a text editor like nano (command line) or mousepad (graphical environment):

Code: Select all

exec startkde
2) ~/.bash_profile
adding at the end to enable login true display and ask for starting X:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xinitrc

Code: Select all

[[ -z $DISPLAY && $XDG_VTNR -eq 1 ]] && exec startx
Problems
Starting nm-applet automatically.

kwalletrc asking continually for password:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/284770/ ... rd-working
Solution (not tested)
edit file ~/.kde/share/config/kwalletrc - adding to [Wallet] section just one line
Enabled=false

networkmanager is provided by networkmanager-consolekit, which is already in 001-core..
by rights, pacman/pman shouldn't even try to pull networkmanager due to the provides/conflict...

You are right. I just remove networkmanager in first post.

Thanks.

I do not get the plasma network manager applet in the panel menu. Is there a way to get it?
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ne ... KDE_Plasma
KDE Plasma
Install the plasma-nm package


I would like the quick launch but it seems that my minimal install does not provide it? Any idea on how to get it?
(searches for these widgets on the net did not provided any cue)
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=201428

Code: Select all

pman -S kdeplasma-addons
I added these two packages and ark (archiver to the list in the first thread).

My changes for installing kde-plasma and some basic packages as mentioned in the first post got to the size of 1.3 GiB. :oops:

And I do not even count the size of the modules that were producted by pman. :(

pman strips but semingly not enough. What else could be done?

i suggest you get yourself a copy of brokenmans slackware build scripts, and in particular, look at /scripts/build lines 1138 to 1237 ,
to get some ideas about what can be stripped from kde and qt... and prossibly gtk3 and python references elsewhere in this script..

I did not got the time to use the script. However, presently on my old PC found in the garbage, nemesis kde plasma seems to be doing better than porteus 3.2 and manjaro with the same desktop in term of behavior: speed and fiability.

It seems that xfce is a lot more easy to build as a desktop. Ligther too. So kde5 :(
