(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package: kpackage
Severity: wishlist

This bug is forwarded from the Debian BTS as it was filed on
a Debian package.
The original bug report can be seen at http://bugs.debian.org/102462.
As far as I know it is not a duplicate of any existing bug.
If it is I will pick this up and merge within the next 12 hours;
Otherwise please merge yourself.
Thankyou Daniel Stone <daniel@sfarc.net> the "other"
Debian KDE maintainer.

Currently in order to install or remove a package it is necessary to select 
a line in one of the package display trees and then mouse down and press the 
Install Marked or Uninstall Marked button. As a shortcut for single-package 
operations it would be nice if one could right-click on a line and have a 
popup menu appear with the Install and Uninstall options.

I'm using a Debian potato 2.2 system upgraded with kernel 2.4.4 and libc6 
2.2.2-4 KDE 2.1.1 with kdelibs3 2.1.2.

(Thanks for a very good application!)

That's a good idea, I'll look into doing it.

KPackage was recently removed from KDE SC (since 4.4 beta2) as it was completely broken and unmaintained.

Most of the common GNU/Linux distributions offer their own tools to deal with packages, and KDE is working on an universal package manager replacement named "Shaman" (to superseed KPackageKit)

Closing the KPackage's bug reports as UNMAINTAINED.
