    Re: HowTo install KDE 3 into Intrepid (repost)


    Know anything about Bluetooth? Apparently the current bluez is completely incompatible with KDE3.5, and there is some heavy recoding to do on the KDE3.5 end of things.


    I spoke with the Kubuntu developers this morning. Basically, I will provide a script to migrate from the current "epoch 7" repository to the new -kde3 repository, and I will start the patch & rebuild process ASAP.

    The good side of this is that the official KDE4 and KDE3.5 will finally be able to coexist, and I see no reason why I can't also package KDE3.5 for Jaunty. There is even the possibility of this going semi-official, but don't hold your breath.

    The downside is that I have no idea how long this is going to take. I have to learn the PPA system and a few other tools...

    Long term, I might be able to help KDE4 include some missing KDE3.5 options. We'll see if the KDE devs get there first though. KDE4.2 added a "standard desktop" option, so that will make a lot of people (myself included) very happy.

    Status updates will be posted here as I make progress.

    Do you like the KDE3.5 repository and my KDE3.5 development work? Then please consider helping my work with KDE3 by donating a little something here!
