Hi all,
i switched my work and home laptop to the default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/plasma/systemd profile. Today I want to create an activity under KDE but nothing happens. I tried it on my two laptops and the result is the same - nothing, so I think it is a general problem. I detected the package kde-base/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1 and try to emerge it, but it fails:

Code:

emerge kde-base/kactivitymanagerd
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    ~] kde-base/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1  USE="(-aqua)"
[blocks B      ] <kde-base/kactivities-4.13.3-r1 ("<kde-base/kactivities-4.13.3-r1" is blocking kde-base/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1)


I found nothing about kde activities on the gentoo sites. How can I create a activity under kde4 on a gentoo system?

Thanks in advance!

kactivitymanagerd was split out of kde-base/kactivities from kde-base/kactivities-4.13.3-r1, so it's present in earlier versions. Check for /usr/bin/kactivitymanagerd.

There is no /usr/bin/kactivitymanagerd

Code:
locate kactivitymanagerd
/usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/kactivitymanagerd.mo
/usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/kactivitymanagerd_fileitem_linking_plugin.mo

which package owns kactivitymanagerd?

I just noticed you mentioned you're using the plasma profile (note this is intended for use with Plasma 5, not KDE 4). This means that, by default, kde-base/kactivities will be built with USE="minimal" meaning that kactivitymanagerd is not built and installed.

I suggest rebuilding kde-base/kactivities with USE="-minimal (and considering switching to a more appropriate profile).

Thank you Kensington,
switching to profile default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/kde/systemd solve the problem.
