Question: Does Tumbleweed not need the KDE:Qt5 repository?
There's also a repository for KDE:Qt5 https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Qt5/openSUSE_Factory/ But it's not listed under Tumbleweed. Is this not needed? --Audaki (talk) 14:07, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
No, the repos for Tumbleweed on the page all build against Tumbleweed directly, without KDE:Qt5. Tumbleweed already contains the latest Qt version anyway. --Vogtinator (talk) 14:12, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Question: Updated Applications pointing to extras?
Hello, thanks for maintaining this page, it is an important resource to me.
In section https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KDE_repositories#Updated_KDE_Applications_only there is only a pointer to Extras which does not have many updated applications as I understood it would have. Shouldn't this be a pointer to http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Applications/KDE_Frameworks5_openSUSE_Leap_42.3/ or maybe to both so?
I don't think that's a good idea. KDE:Extra is maintained in a way that it does not touch any important core packages and thus is unlikely to break the system in any noticable way. Adding KDE:Frameworks5 and KDE:Applications (which also equals KDE:Qt5!) is not only untested, but also less stable as Tumbleweed as a result. Also, you can't use KDE:Extra with that combination and many packages in the official repository WILL NOT work with this.
So maybe the description could be improved. I was looking for a way to get a modern version of the KDE applications for example KMail (with akonadi and Kontact) for Leap 42.3. From the description I was expecting to get such a repo in this section, but following up I saw that Extra only had some other applications. I used the discussion page because I am not sure if such a repo for updates of the applications exits at all or is technically possible. So my suggestion was just wildly guessing, thanks for clarifying that it wouldn't work.
I see. Updated KMail needs Qt >= 5.9, so won't work easily on Leap 42.x anyway. At that point I recommend TW or even Leap 15.
Okay, so I guess the description should be updated. In addition: As far as I can say the 13.2 warning can go away as all three links are for 42.x. Is the other warning still warranted as 42.1 already comes with KF5?
I updated the description and removed 42.1. There are still some Qt4-based applications in 42.x which KDE:Extra replaces, so the message is still valid.
Thanks! I've made one additional textual improvement, hoping that is fine. (I don't know about the archiving policy of the discussion pages of this wiki, I'm fine with archiving this thread.)
Leap instructions cause Autorefresh to be disabled
When you follow the following instructions autorefresh is disabled on 15.4. This has caused me to be caught out with out of date packages: zypper ar -p 75 'https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Qt5/openSUSE_Leap_$releasever' KDE-Qt5 zypper ar -p 75 'https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Frameworks5/openSUSE_Leap_$releasever' KDE-Frameworks zypper ar -p 75 'https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Applications/KDE_Frameworks5_openSUSE_Leap_$releasever' KDE-Applications zypper ar -p 75 'https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Applications_openSUSE_Leap_$releasever' KDE-Extra zypper -v dup --allow-vendor-change
Hello, did you test with the change? I just tried this on a new Leap 15.4 install and after adding the KDE repositories my installation was ruined, and I had to perform a rollback to be able to even login. Paul4us (talk) 18:54, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
