Plasma Media Center on openSUSE 13.1
Download the installable image from here. I used kde image for installation. Once the image is installed you would be popped up for software updates ( assuming that you are connected to internet 🙂 ). For installation of packages I prefer yast. Lets start installing packages one-by-one before cloning and building plasma-mediacenter.
Select yast -> Software Management
1) Search for git. Attaching the screenshot below:Always do click on “Accept” to install.
2) Now install nepomuk-core-devel. See the screenshot below:
3) Install libtag-devel.
4) Installing qt-mobility is bit tricky but the screenshots and steps will help you out.
a) Open up the web page as shown:
b) Now click on “Show unstable packages”. You would land up in the following screen:
c) Click on “Continue”. Below mentioned screen would be popped up.
d) You can select KDE:Qt’s “1 Click Install”. Now user will be popped up in the browser( I am using firefox) as shown below:
Proceed by clicking “OK” and follow up installation of adding KDE:Qt repo. And finally you end up installing qt-mobility.
e) Install kdebase4-workspace-devel.
f) Install plasma-theme-oxygen.
All packages are installed now its time to clone and build the plasma-mediacenter repo:
$ git clone git://anongit.kde.org/plasma-mediacenter.git
$ cd plasma-mediacenter
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config –prefix`
$ make -j(n+1) // n = number of cores
$ sudo make install
