Kamera no longer depends on kde3support (Qt3support help wanted)

Happy new year!

Two days ago I committed patches to Kamera in KDE trunk (4.7) that remove all usage of the kde3support libraries. (It seems that tsegdos had the same idea with KWalletManager.) All the changes I made were to elements of the GUI accessible without a camera. Due to this, I unfortunately was not able to remove the remaining usage of the Qt3Support libraries. If anybody with a USB-enabled camera wants to step up, they can have the satisfaction of knowing that they helped wean one more program off of deprecated libraries.🙂

On the subject of kde3support and qt3support, I saw some people wondering how many things still depend on it. Fortunately, it is easy to find this out using the “rdepends” feature of apt-cache. Here is the state of things in KDE 4.6:

The Qt3support list includes a lot of non-KDE apps,  and most of the apps listed in the kde3support list also depend on qt3support, so I won’t bother posting that list.

  1. Actually, it is worth to mention there have been a lot of work done to remove Qt3Support and kde3support from Calligra applications (so it concerns krita, kspread, kexi ), since it is a requirement for using the kdelibs mobile profile.

  2. Correction: current development branch of k3b doesn’t depend on Qt3Support anymore.
