Description Oliver Sander 2010-06-22 17:52:10 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.4.4) 
OS:                Linux

I use Kate and the build plug-in to develop C++ programs.  Every now and then, after having triggered 'make' through the plug-in, I realize that I have called make for the wrong target, or in the wrong directory.  I would then like to kill the make process and start it again.  However, this doesn't seem possible from within Kate.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Oliver Sander 2010-10-27 18:17:35 UTC
As it turns out this feature exists, and I just didn't see it.

Part of the reason why I didn't see it is that its menu entry is called 'Break', which, particularly in its German translation 'Pause', made me think of a temporary suspension rather than an actual kill of the build process.  (Of course you may ask why one would ever want to temporarily suspend build processes...)

I tried writing a patch that renames the menu entry from 'Break' to 'Stop'.  Unfortunately I seem to miss something and the menu entry disappears completely rather than switching name.

Could somebody please either review my patch and tell me what I did wrong, or just close this bug if renaming is considered undesirable?  Thanks!

Try to increase the version of the .ui file (at the top of it). If that does not work, try to remove ~/.kde/share/apps/kate/plugins/katebuild/ui.rc and restart kate.

Increasing the version did the trick.  Thanks!
