View Full Version : Why git plugin doesn't support in KDevelop which installed from Ubuntu 12.04?

Hi Guys,

I prefer to use long term support version, so I'm still using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Recently I wanted to change C/C++ IDE tool, so I chose KDevelop and it's quite nice :-)
But the problem is that I wanted to use KDevelop with Git plugin feature, but when I installed KDevelop from 12.04 repository, I can't find the feature in KDevelop.
The installed KDevelop version was 4.3, so basically this version should have Git support, but it doesn't...
Does any one know why this was happen?
And how I can add git plugin feature for KDevelop?

Just for reference, I installed 'git' before installing KDevelop.

I wanted to build KDevelop myself, but there was some dependencies issues, so I had to re-install Ubuntu...
So this is not good option for me... :-(

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards,

Hmm, weird thing... Actually I just resolved this issue. What I did that

1) Removed all kdevelop/kdevplatform packages with sudo apt-get remove & sudo apt-get purge
2) Clean the apt-get cache with sudo apt-get clean
3) Install lots of git replated packages
sudo apt-get install git git-core gitk git-el git-gui git-sh git-stuff gitg
4) Reinstall kdevelop, then it worked.

However I still don't know which packages was exactly depending on this issue yet...
Anyway I'll close this issue for now...
