Patch to update x11/qterminal

- Update to 0.7.0
- Replace GitHub host by lxqt.org
- Add new patch, which avoids to use Git (it clones the lxqt-l10n repository) in order to fetch traduction files.

Note: the lxqt-l10n will be available very soon in LXQt development repository, and in ports trees for this update.
Comment 1 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2016-09-24 20:25:16 UTC
This patch breaks the port.  Cmake error below.

FYI, I did my own update this morning.  The port in my WIP collection builds cleanly, but there is an issue with the default geometry that still needs to be resolved:

(In reply to Jason Bacon from comment #1)

Yes, I have just saw, I think we must remove completely lxqt_translate_ts macro because it provides by liblxqt (it contains cmake modules). But we can't add this port because it requires kf5-kwindowsystem (not yet in ports tree).
Comment 3 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2016-09-24 21:03:58 UTC
I took a brief look at the 0.6.0 CMakeLists.txt this morning and it appears to handle translations without a dependency on lxqt.  Do you think it's worth patching in the old method in order to provide the translations, or should we just provide the port without translations for now?
Comment 4 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2016-09-28 02:49:43 UTC
The other issue is that the geometry patches from 0.6.0 no longer work.

I think the problem is that they altered the code to use "pos" and "size" variables instead of "geometry" and did not update qterminal.ui to correspond.

This is the evidence from qterminal.ini:

< geometry=@ByteArray()
> pos=@Point(347 319)
> size=@Size(821 599)

I don't know much about QT programming and have no spare time right now, so it may take me a while to figure this out.  Unless someone beats me to it...

Patch to update x11/qterminal

Update previous patche. It requires some core LXQt components (liblxqt and qtxdg, I'm intend to commit these 2 new ports).

GitHub is still uses as MASTER_SITES.

There's patch [1] which remove minimum size, perhaps it can help you.

Translation files of Qterminal

New port for translation files (x11/qterminal-l10n). It requires the new LXQt framework.

As you are maintainer of Qterminal, I'm waiting your proposition if we add new dependency in x11/qterminal (in order to automatically install translations) or display message for users (through files/pkg-message.in).
Comment 7 Olivier Duchateau freebsd_committer 2016-11-18 22:36:13 UTC
Tested successfully in Poudriere 9.3 i386 and 11-0 amd64.
Comment 8 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2016-11-18 22:59:09 UTC
I just got back from vacation.  I'll try to address the run time issues in qterminal 0.7.0 shortly so we can get this committed.


Comment 9 Olivier Duchateau freebsd_committer 2016-11-19 14:28:51 UTC
I've just committed, required dependencies in revision r426375.
Comment 10 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2016-11-30 23:32:04 UTC
Thanks for the patches, they clean up the port nicely.

I have one concern, though:

The lxqt dependency adds of a lot of indirect dependencies that I suspect might only benefit LXQT users.

Qterminal itself is potentially attractive to users of any desktop env, so it would be nice to minimize the dependencies that come with it.

Can you elaborate on what USES=lxqt does for qterminal if it's being used outside the LXQT env?

I wonder if we could separate the LXQT dependency from the qterminal port, and maybe even convince upstream LQXT developers to keep qterminal independent of the LXQT env.
Comment 11 Olivier Duchateau freebsd_committer 2016-12-01 05:54:13 UTC
(In reply to Jason Bacon from comment #10)

USES= lxqt add some environment variables needed for build steps (especially CMAKE_ARGS in case of qterminal).

If you want to remove USES= lxqt (and USE_LXQT= lxqt), you must add -DPULL_TRANSLATIONS:BOOL=OFF (avoid to use git for translation files). And in LIB_DEPENDS line add:

LIB_DEPENDS= libQt5Xdg.so:devel/libqtxdg \

In the next release, liblxqt has been removed, replaced by lxqt-build-tools [1] (contains only cmake modules), so dependencies will be decrease.

Comment 12 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2016-12-01 13:47:45 UTC

Thanks, the reduction in dependencies is good news and might render my concern moot.

Also, I created an ticket regarding default terminal size:


I've tried solving this myself by playing with changes to the ui file and with QT 5 Designer, but I'm green on QT development and have not met success yet. If I don't figure this out soon, we can commit the port as-is for now. I find the problem very bothersome, but it's ultimately only cosmetic.

Translation files of Qterminal

Let's proceed with this as-is.  We can try to trim down the dependencies in future updates, hopefully with help upstream.

I would also support installing translations as dependencies.
