Re: [opensuse-factory] Re: [opensuse-kde] KDE4/Qt4 removal from openSUSE Factory
Hi Wolfgang,

re-sizing the "current playing" works.... when the  mini-program explorer is active.

1 step closer to amarok on qt5 then :-)

Well, it's still work in progress and not even beta yet (and git snapshots
usually don't have translations).

In particular, the context view had to be rewritten/redesigned from scratch as
it used Plasma (yes, the desktop shell ;-) ) as engine.

Not all applets have been ported/rewritten yet, and the ones that are mainly
act as a "technological preview" for now.

Scripting is virtually non-existant too.

Otherwise it should indeed work basically, and it also seems to be stable in
my (very limited) testing, except for a reliable crash on exit here (certainly
not nice, but doesn't really affect the actual usage either)

There was a (build) problem that caused the internal collection database to
not work at all with the latest mariadb in Leap 15 and Tumbleweed (caused a
database error on startup, an external one worked fine but needs manual
setup), but I fixed that on Saturday using a patch from Arch Linux.

Another "problem" I noticed is that the (internal) database files are not
migrated from the KDE4 version, so if you switch/update Amarok to the KF5 port
your collection will be empty and statistics/ratings are lost (unless they are
stored in the music files themselves).
That's because the migration code fails to copy subdirectories. I rewrote that
part yesterday, and it's working locally here now too.
I'll submit my fix upstream of course, for now you can workaround that by
copying the "amarok" folder from ~/.kde4/share/apps/ to ~/.local/share/
manually (delete the existing folder, or just copy the "mysqle" subfolder).

What are the next steps..?

I am not familiar with qt, so I am not sure I can help..
Wait until it is finished? ;-)

It's certainly possible to update the package to a git snapshot, the question
is just if we want/should.

As it seems to basically work (otherwise it would not make any sense at all),
it probably would indeed be better than not having it at all IMHO...
