Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176106
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:49:34 EDT
Description of problem:
the qt4 dbus-qt bindings have been backported for qt3 I would like them
enabled so that kde can take advantage of things like hot plugging usb
drives, cameras etc. in a much simpler fashion
Are the new qt3 bindings going to be maintained and does anything in core use it
right now? If not then it is best to get them into extras.
BTW I don't see anything in the changelogs to indicate the new qt3 bindings have
been added upstream yet.
KDE 3.5 if I am not mistaken can take advantage of this bindings and is in the
FC4 and rawhide. More information available at here:
Yes, please..bring back dbus-qt.
One less thing that others like me have to package up for ourselves.
KDE 3.5 can not take advantage of the new Qt3 bindings and as I was told by the
upstream developer, there will not be another release of the 3.x series. The
dbus-qt3 bindings in upstream are not maintained and will not be added back.
The best option is to get patches into the packages that use them to either copy
functionality from the bindings or switching to using just libhal and minimal
low level dbus calls. From what I understand the stuff that uses D-Bus is
minimal and mostly just uses it to talk to HAL.
dbus-qt bindings for Qt3 seem to be back:
Please reopen this bug if the solution is appropriate.
read comment #5. It still holds true.
*** Bug 189729 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
It seems both qt3 and qt(4) bindings are included in the dbus-0.61 tarballs
now. John, would you rather we submit these to Extras?
Duh, forgot to reread, and missed comment #1 : "...it is best to get them into
I have been working on building the qt3 binding seperately so far without
much luck. because i want to submit knetworkmanager for extras.
This packages for me, dunno if it'll work with knetworkmanager:
Per comment #1:
>Are the new qt3 bindings going to be maintained and does anything in core use it
Yes, k3b, respectively. Reopening for reconsideration for Core, since dbus-qt
is now in Extras.
We are not even releasing qt3 bindings upstream. When 0.90 comes out fairly
soon all the bindings will be split out into seperate packages. No one has
taken ownership of Qt3. I belive the KDE maintainer has patched most of the
core apps to talk to dbus directly. Please file a bug there.
I should note the KDE maintainer (than) for Fedora, not upstream.
