TDE Base Packages

Trinity Desktop Environment 14.0.0

A previous paper in this series discussed the build procedure for two Trinity Desktop Environment fundamental packages: tdebase and tdelibs. Installing both provides a minimal environment which should be expanded installing further packages. This paper will discuss the procedure to build the remaining TDE 14.0.0 packages for Slackware 14.1.

Build System

A TDE full install is made up of many packages derived from the 3.5 branch of KDE. The KDe project chose Autotools as its build system. TDE dropped it in favor of Cmake, but the migration is still a work in progress. The majority of packages can be built recurring to Cmake, but some still need a configure script and related tools. The following table summarize the list of packages and corresponding build system:

BUILD SYSTEM
Package System
tde-i18n Cmake
tdeaccessibility Autotools
tdeaddons Autotools
tdeadmin Autotools
tdeartwork Cmake
tdebindings Autotools
tdeedu Autotools
tdegames Autotools
tdegraphics Cmake
tdemultimedia Autotools
tdenetwork Cmake
tdepim Cmake
tdesdk Cmake
tdetoys Cmake
tdeutils Cmake
tdevelop Cmake
tdewebdev Autotools

Page Common Build Script Structure discusses a generic SlackBuild script used to build TDE packages. For a description of the generic options used please consult page Generic Options. The instructions available there, in spite of being related to the Prerequisite package group, have a general value and work for the Base packages as well. Package specific options will be discussed below together with patches and workarounds. A download link to the full SlackBuild script is provided for each package in order to help whoever wishes to test it. Please refer to the build order provided in page Build Order for everything to work out correctly.

Custom Options

Packages will be presented in alphabetical order instead of the build one.

TDE-I18N

A single name encloses all of the localization packages available for TDE. 81 among languages and variants for non English speaking users that can be installed based upon personal needs and preferences. All of the packages are optional. The tde-i18n script is somewhat peculiar as it does not execute a real build, more a rearranging of files to match a standard schema. Moreover the script does not manages a single package, but works every single one it can find in the root directory; its execution requires a large amount of time. Building all of the localization packages can require more than four hours on a modern PC. To build packages You'll need to set the ARCH environment variable:

   ARCH="noarch"

Localization packages are architecture independent. Create a sub-directory where to work the source code for each localization and a second one where to copy output files during install:

   LC_PACK=`basename ${LC_PACK_PATH}`
   # Enter the directory
   cd ${TMP}/tmp-${PRGNAM}/${DIR_SRC}/${LC_PACK}
   # Create a directory where to build source.
   mkdir build
   cd build
   # Create a directory where to install the built package
   PKG=${TMP}/package-${LC_PACK}
   mkdir ${PKG}

Run archive configuration invoking cmake:

   cmake ${TMP}/tmp-${PRGNAM}/${DIR_SRC}/${LC_PACK} \
      -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS:STRING="${SLKCFLAGS}" \
      -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING="${SLKCFLAGS} $DEBUG_CMAKE_OPT" \
      -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=${PREFIX} \
      -DLIB_SUFFIX=${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
      -DMAN_INSTALL_DIR=${MANDIR} \
      -DSYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR=${SYSCONFDIR} \
      -DBUILD_ALL=ON

Then execute make.

Remove the newly created directories once the package is installed in order not to consume all of /tmp disk space:

   rm -r ${TMP}/tmp-${PRGNAM}/${DIR_SRC}/${LC_PACK}/build

All of the packages and intermediate files require more than 2 Gbyte.

To build a working tdeaccessibility package please install a patch solving a version mismatch issue for the libtool library:

Configure source code recurring to the configure script. The script requires the --enable-closure and some other options:

   LDFLAGS="${SLKLDFLAGS}" \
   CFLAGS="${SLKCFLAGS}" \
   CXXFLAGS="${SLKCFLAGS}" \
   ../${DIR_SRC}/configure \
      ${DEBUG_AUTOTOOL_OPT} \
      --enable-closure \
      --enable-kttsd-epos=no \
      --enable-kttsd-festivalint=no \
      --enable-kttsd-flite=no \
      --enable-kttsd-freetts=no \

Developers wishing to code in Java should check a working JDK to be installed before building tdebindings otherwise language support will be disabled. For more information about JDK installation please consult the official Slackware documentation available in directory extra/source/java/ of any installation support.

To build the source code You have to install a patch needed to resolve a version mismatch issue for the libtool library:

Conclusions

The present paper discussed the procedure to build many packages constituting the backbone for the Trinity Desktop Environment. Custom options were documented for each package and links for all of the used SlackBuild scripts were provided in the hope for them to be useful to Slackware Linux users wishing to give a try at building the desktop environment from scratch. All of the output packages can be found in the /tmp directory of Your machine and can be installed invoking the installpkg command standard in every Slackware distribution.
