No. Gentoo broke the FindKDE4WorkspaceLibs.cmake file or something
related to that. That file is installed as part of kdebase/workspace and
creates a CMaket target called "KDE4Workspace__processui" that is in
CMake "IMPORT" target and points to the actual library installed
somewhere in your system. As I said, the gentoo ebuild(? is it called
that) was broken until 2 weeks ago and hence the
FindKDE4WorkspaceLibs.cmake didn't set this import target properly.
Thats why you're seeing that strange error. So what you need to do is
update kdebase/workspace and as far as I understood that update is
available from some "live" branch or something like that (as I said, no
gentoo user here, no idea how these things are called).


You will step on the night soil of many countries.
