This package contains a variety of packaging tools and build scripts that may
be very useful when packaging KDE applications. Even if you are a maintainer
of a very small KDE application, this package should be worthwhile checking
Main highlights:
- recommended build flags for building packages based on the KDE Platform;
- cdbs class for building packages based on the KDE Platform (;
- debhelper build system (--buildsystem=kde) and dh addon (--with kde) for
building packages based on the KDE Platform;
- dh_sameversiondep for generating a dependency that is versioned the same
way as a dependency (coming from the same source) of another reference
- dh_movelibkdeinit for moving libkdeinit4_*.so libraries to private
- dh_sodeps (and sodeps dh addon) for generating so:Depends substvar for -dev
packages based to which local packages lib*.so symlinks point to;
- dh_qmlcdeps (and qmlcdeps dh addon) for generating qmlc:Depends substvar
for packages shipping QML cache files.
- pkgkde-symbolshelper tool for efficient management of C and C++ symbol
- pkgkde-debs2symbols tool for generating symbol files and symbol file
patches from pre-built binaries in the deb packages;
- pkgkde-getbuildlogs tool for downloading build logs for the specified
package (from;
- pkgkde-override-sc-dev-latest tool for overriding Breaks of the
kde-sc-dev-latest package;
- pkgkde-vcs tool for performing common tasks when packaging under VCS.
NOTE: since this package is cumulative, it does not depend on the packages it
provides helpers for. I.e. you still need to explicitly build depend on
debhelper or cdbs in your packages.
