Review request for KDE Base Apps, Luigi Toscano and Nicolás Alvarez.


Add notes regarding kdoctools setup on the OSX/CI system

Repository: kde-baseapps

Description (updated)

I need to upgrade the docbook DTD from 4.2 to 4.5 to be able to build this project.


I have done similar checkins for other projects like step and kgeography, but I am unsure whether this is really the way to go, although Nicolas made the same for kalgebra lately.

Luigi wrote in that this should work with kdelibs4support installed. It is installed on the OSX/CI system, but still it doesn't work.


So, perhaps it is worthwhile diagnosing what goes wrong there instead of committing this RR?!

What can I do to let kdoctools tell me where exactly it expects to find its catalogues?

Let me add that kdoctools definitely expects its files in "/Library/Application Support/kf5/kdoctools" in my case, because I had to copy them to there manually after successfully building kdoctools:

$ ls /Library/Application\ Support/kf5/kdoctools

Also note, that I use this global setting for configurePlatformArgs: -DDATA_INSTALL_DIR="Library/Application Support".

Builds/installs fine
