What is the purpose of Juk being still a part of KDE in Slackware?


Hi,

I found bug in Juk - but it seems no one is maintaining now this apps. I think it is just better to remove Juk completely from Slackware.

Last commit was on 20 October 2018, so how many minutes between commits does it take for you to decide something isn't maintained?

I don't know. I was following this link http://community.kde.org/index.php?t...action=history. But actually it can be bug of qt library. Widget which shows list of directories and allows to open file, just can't open directory which a is mount point for ntfs partition mounted as ntfs-3g. And only this one directory. When clicking icon of another directory it is ok. Maybe I will find some another application which is using the same widget.

It appears the Community Wiki is the thing out of maintenance, not Juk:

Ok I decided to leave this and mark the thread as solved. It seems that for some reasons now it works. The reason I was running system in level 1 init. Seems I messed up a little. Who the hell will run KDE in single user mode? But this does not resolve problems with plasma crashes. Now I am running system in multi user, yet plasma still crashes. Tomorrow I will clean the system and reinstall KDE. Then I will see.


How do I reinstall KDE? Will installing all packages from kde/ directory with tagfile is enough? It just overwrite existing installation. Or is there better solution?

I'm likely only half awake so this might be silly but something "smells funny" to me in that deeper things than just the KDE libraries seem compromised. The default init level in Slackware is runlevel 3, multi-user CLI, so how is it even possible that X, let alone KDE, runlevel 4 devices, are running in runlevel 1, limited single-user maintenance mode? Is this situation something you setup? or are defaults and other things somehow corrupted?

Whichever the cause I think you have deeper issues than just KDE and I would research that very carefully and then apply the proper remedy(s) even if it means complete reinstall. It's possible that can be handled with "upgradepkg --reinstall" but you won't know until you discover what caused this init issue.

I did not setup some particular. System is plain vanilla Slackware-current. Well, I just switched to runlevel with su -c 'telinit 1'. Then I simply forgot that and started X and KDE with startx command. But I still can't understand why this particular application was unable to read that directory. Dolphin, Konqueror had no troubles to open and to read this directory. It is mounted with ntfs-3g demon. I suspect that some service used for this purpose by JuK was not running. Probably Konqueror and Dolphin have more direct access to file system.

It seems like it is possible that deeper issues may not exist but, if I may ask, why did you telinit 1 in the first place?

To make clean: telinit 1 -> telinit 3. Kind of soft reboot.
