Description Angelo Naselli 2012-08-13 12:43:00 UTC
Fixing this bug in mageia:
we've realized we could provide digikam nepomuk
service as an additional package containing it
and bringing with, all the nepomuk dependencies.
And now we've realized also that nepomuk tab into setup
is there anyway, and if you set up things of course it
does not work if you don't have installed the related
package, and we cannot say it to users.

We wonder if we can add a setup tab directly into nepomuk
service implementation, so that it can stay alone or at least
enabling it when the service is loaded?
Why? Because not all the users like and/or use nepomuk and
we'd like to avoid installing it if they just want to use
digikam .

Reproducible: Always

The config tab, if I'm not mistaken, will not have a direct nepomuk dependency, it should only write config files and issue DBUS calls. Keeping it in digikam and not providing it without the nepomuk package seems as an easier solution, but there needs to be a runtime check then, which I wouldnt know how to do without further investigation.

Git commit b882df3641e6a3b6b0ff35552d1c9cda434e868e by Marcel Wiesweg.

Pushed by mwiesweg into branch 'master'.

Disable the current implementation of a digikam-nepomuk integration.

By information from the Nepomuk maintainer, the relevant API have been replaced.
Essentially, the current code is at best not functional, at worst polluting your Nepomuk db.
A new implementation needs to be written based on current APIs.
