Hi Phani,

after switching packages to SC:/kdepim46 all my plasma clocks (fuzzy,
digital, analog) stopped working, with the error message: "Could not find
requested component: clock". looking at /var/log/zypp/history, i see that
only kdepim stuff got updated, plus quite a few perl libraries from OSS,
apparently as dependencies of the new kdepim libs.
Which repo did you had installed before ? If you were already running with KDF
with kdepim 4.6, then the switch to the new repo shouldn't have brought in any
new perl libraries from OSS.

i don't understand why this should affect plasma (widget) clocks, unless
those use those perl libraries, too, and are not happy with the new choices.
writing to the kde-devel mailing list, i got the following reply:
You're probably missing the libclock for plasma. It's a distro problem,
not a plasma one nor a kontact one.
Please enquire with your distribution,

Which openSUSE version are you running ?

i'm sure this has been caused by switching to the SC:/kdepim46 repo, and
that whoever prepared those repos would like to know about that. but i'm
puzzled where to report this as a bug: plasma, kontact, or what?

At this moment I doubt very much if this has anything to do with kdepimlibs
and/or kdepim. Neither one is influecing (afaik) the way plasma behaves.

Sorry to say so, but this is not entirely correct. Fact is the clocks use
a component called "view-pim-calendar" as calendar extender. See your
~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc, search for "clock".

To me (a novice in terms of compiling kde4) this looks like the following:

- The plasma-clock-applets want to load "view-pim-calendar"
- "view-pim-calendar" is provides (AFAIK) by kdepim

- SC:/kdepim46 also needs to contain the plasma-clock-applets compiled
for kdepim46 or the plasma clocks wont work.

Please correct me if I'm wrong here.

Cheers, Michael
