It seems to be an issue with natty, cause I tested on a fresh installation of maverick and installed smoothly.

Thanks for your package once again, just a few tips: when building use the -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release switch like this:

Quote:cmake ~/path/to/source -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release

This strips debug symbols from the shared module/binary and makes the package a lot smaller.

Moreover, you are missing some dependencies:

Build-Depends: cmake, kdelibs5-dev (>= 4:4.4.0), libmagickcore-dev, libmagick++-dev, libhd-dev, libqapt-dev
Depends: kdebase-runtime (>= 4:4.4.0), grub-common, libmagickcore3, libmagick++3, libhd16, libqapt-runtime

That's the full dependency list to enable all available features.
Once again thanks :)

There are already natty packages in the official repositories. They are just outdated (v0.3.0). I hope they will update them soon.

Set the distributor to `lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` (including the backquotes), save & update GRUB.

I'm not sure how this has happened. Any other clues?

`lsb_release

1) Yeah it's pretty convenient, but at the moment I only use it for source packaging when releasing. openSUSE build service does a better job for .deb and .rpm packaging.

2) Thanks :)

This is an (outdated?) package for 'Grub2 Kcm' (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=137886). This Arch package is not related with this software.

I understood that after post this message, sorry.
It would be nice if in the AUR appeared this program.

This project looks quite similar to https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/sysadmin/kcmgrub2, although one is written in C++ and the other in Python...

Indeed, they are both KCModules for GRUB2, but other than that they have nothing in common. Different author, different capabilities and so on..

You can try both (not at the same time because I think they conflict) and pick the one that best fits your needs.

Thanks for your reply. Also, I would like to ask whether you have considered using projects.kde.org infrastructure to host this project (it also uses git, so there shoudn't be much difference from the developer point of view)? I have now looked at kcmgrub2 and it has received much more translations (and a couple of fixes from other people) since the time it has migrated to projects.kde.org.

Yeah sure, thanks for suggesting. I actually didn't jump on projects.kde.org because the python grub2 kcmodule had just done so and I didn't want the author to consider I was copycating him. But we have talked and he seems to be cool with it, so I'll do it in a couple of days perhaps.
