Hello,
I am trying to build on Kubuntu 13.10.

Although I installed the libqt4-dev package and many other for development, I am encountering this error:

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

I think you need the qt4-dev-tools package in order to build Qt applications. Try apt-get install qt4-dev-tools, clean your build directory or unpack the archive and try building again, or better, try finding a .deb package to ensure system consistency.

I am having a problem with kcm-ufw on debian linux 7 Wheezy x86_64. On my dell inspiron 9400, I have kernel 3.7.1 and kcm-ufw will disable itself if I try to enble logging and will not allow enbbling until logging is turned off and on my acer using stock kernel, I cannot disable ipv6.

I've just checked with KDE4.9 under Kubuntu 12.04 - and v0.4.3 works fine for me.

What errors are you seeing?

p.s. Please send bug reports to my email address (which is in the AUTHORS file in the tarball) - I don’t check kde-apps that often.

Kubuntu 12.04
VMWare Player 4.0.2
UFW KControl Module 0.4.2

After finding gufw was crashing on me, I poked around for a KDE counterpart and found this great tool. After following the simple 5 steps to install, interrupted only by a few hours extensive forum searching and riddling around with installing the correct dev tools to compile this (wtb more install notes), I finally managed to build and install it. I created a couple simple rules for samba and things seem to work ok. I enabled the firewall and decided to work on the rest of the rules at a later time. Today I attempted to open up port 80 for a web server and got the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kcm_ufw_helper.py", line 583, in main() File "/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kcm_ufw_helper.py", line 535, in main addRule(ufw, a) File "/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kcm_ufw_helper.py", line 393, in addRule rule=fromXml(xml) File "/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kcm_ufw_helper.py", line 299, in fromXml rule = ufw.common.UFWRule(action, protocol) AttributeError: UFWFrontend instance has no attribute 'common'

I've been keeping the system updated, I suppose it's possible something changed elsewhere. I tried recompiling and re-installing but it had no effect.

Only just updated to 12.04... Can you try editing helper/kcm_ufw_helper.py.cmake and add (without dashed lines!)

------------------------
from ufw.common import UFWRule
------------------------

...at about line 47. Then at line 300 (was 299 in error message), change:

------------------------
rule = ufw.common.UFWRule(action, protocol)
------------------------

to

------------------------
rule = UFWRule(action, protocol)
------------------------

Then rebuild, and reinstall kcm_ufw. Does this fix the issue? It seems to for me at least... If so, I'll release an update.

Same problem here. I use kubuntu 11.04 with ufw 0.30, maybe downgrade to 0.41 fix the problem?
My PPA: https://launchpad.net/~leviatan1/+archive/ppa

Anyway, I don't have access to 0.41 source to try it.

I'm still on 11.10 :-( However, moving /lib/ufw to /usr/lib/ufw/ should not be the reason for the errors - as the stuff in there is not directly used by this kcm.

What is the output of:

sudo /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kcm_ufw_helper.py --status --list

This kcm uses 'kcm_ufw_helper.py' to do all the real work. And this python helper links into the ufw python modules.
