Revision as of 06:42, 27 November 2011

Do you miss a feature or a package? Or is there something else we can do for you?

  • Please add urls to make it easier to track the packages homepages or similar

Feel free to add your wishes here


Packages (missing packages / packages with problems)

Opened Requests

KDE4 Optional Dependencies

This is a list of optional packages which kde (4.0.0) looks for. Most of them are not yet in the paldo repo (some are, but kde doesn't find them):

  • kdebase-workspace:
    • lm-sensors (this is available in nicu's repo.. hope to commit it within the next days)
    • captury
  • kdemultimedia:
    • TunePimp -> needs libofa which is not free (). Won't add it to repo.
  • kdegraphics:
    • CHM
    • libgs
  • kdeutils:
    • tpctl
    • LibZip (is probably in the repo)
    • LibArchive
  • kdewebdev:
    • libtidy (this is available in nicu's repo.. hope to commit it within the next days)
  • kdenetwork:
    • libvncserver
    • mDNS
    • xmms -> only used in kopete to show what xmms is playing ;)
  • kdeartwork:
    • Xscreensaver
  • kdegames:
    • ggz-client-libs
  • kdeedu:
    • OCaml
    • LibFacile
    • OpenBabel2
    • libcfitsio
    • libsbigudrv
    • libnova

Missing packages for hp-toolbox on hplip

the hp-toolbox binary is included in the hplip package. However it's not builded because of missing pyqt. Maybe we could add those packages:

However this is a bit insane as it would require QT for installing hplip.. maybe we could split the package or solve it in an other sane way


New communication application based on telepathy


Seems to be a quite nice thing in times every webpage is full of blinking ads:

Privoxy is a web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for protecting privacy, modifying web page data, managing cookies, controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other obnoxious Internet junk.

Scientific packages

Paldo has things like TeX and even the emacs mode for TeX, so, why not go a bit further and include maxima, gnuplot and maximas interfaces (wxMaxima and iMaxima or maxima.el for emacs)? That can satisfy a lot of needs in math. And a scheme programming mode (slime, quack, etc) for emacs could be really nice, too.

Framebuffer console+bootsplash+graphical GRUB

Well, of course this isn't really vital, it doesn't make things any faster, etc.(however, Paldo does have things like compiz) But an OS looks really scaring when it makes you dive into those endless logs from the very beginning. Probably, that would be OK even if noone makes up any Paldo-dedicated theme, but anyway that would make things nicer. And some colour-scheming for the console could be really nice, too.

Openbox, Fluxbox, Icewm or some other lightweight desktop

Paldo is already really fast, but it could be even faster! I personally miss icewm

  • Amnon82: Will see if I've time for that ...

Light Network manager

What about a light network manager like wicd or ceni (very light, exists with Sidux)?

Gnome Do

Just in case you have time for that, it is really confortable to use


Perhaps over-engineered, but it's time.

Closed Requests

Here are the requests that have been made for paldo and have already been fixed.

CLOSED KDE4 Problems

following issues need to be fixed in order to get KDE4 into the 'testing' branch:

  • /usr/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu (kdelibs)
  • /usr/etc/xdg/menus/kde-information.menu (kdebase-runtime)
  • /usr/etc/ksysguarddrc (kdebase-workspace)
  • /usr/etc/systemsettingsrc (kdebase-workspace)
  • Diogo Lima: I think It has already beeing fixed, I have no problems with KDE4.x.x myself

CLOSED Blueman

Just a nice frontend for bluetooth infrastructure, GNOME-oriented.

  • Diogo Lima: There is already on the repo the gnome-bluetooth and the bluez-gnome.

CLOSED Xulrunner

That's the only thing that prevents a faithful GNOME-er to get rid of Firefox: Epiphany and some other parts of GNOME depenend on FF. Even now, when the WebKit support for epiphany is far from being usable, epiphany's interface is faster than XUL.

  • Amnon82: This is done with release 1.15.

CLOSED Latest x86_64 unstable Live CD to fit into 700MB

  • Diogo Lima: (30/11/08) It already does in this 1.16- Releases ...
