Hello,
I'm trying to run piklab which is an old KDE4 application. The application was running OK before recent update, now I have only:
Code:
piklab: version 0.16.2 (rev. distribution)
kbuildsycoca4 running..
Could not find katepart: Install Kate.
KCrash: Application 'piklab' crashing..
...

Last time it was fixed by installing katepart, but katepart was recently removed from portage tree. Now installing kde-apps/kate and kde-apps/kwrite did not fix the problem. Is there a replacement for katepart? If not then are there any getnoo "archives" where I can download old, removed ebuilds and possibly edit them and add to my local overlay?
Thank You,
Michael Widlok

I believe katepart was moved to kde-sunset overlay. Beware of ancient marauding dragons when adding that overlay though.

Is there no one upstream working on piklab anymore? It would need to be ported to Qt5/KF5.

Current version of kde-sunset from git does not contain katepart (or I can not find it). Is that means that katepart is lost? Strange.

I'm afraid no one is working on piklab now, and the code hasn't been touched for a long time. I was using 0.16.2 from more then a year, with a few very simple local patches - none of them however was connected to Qt or GUI. Last time it was necessary to fix parallel.cpp/h because of linux-headers update.

Thank You asturm, that fixed this problem. Installed katepart from local kde-sunset overlay and piklab works as before.

Hmm... That's lamentable... Both PikLab and PikDev seem to be dead.

Would MPLab X or PIC C Builder for Eclipse be an alternative?

pikdev at least was ported to clean Qt4, which means a port to Qt5 should not be that difficult.

Yamakuzure,
I've newer used MPLAB-X or PIC C Eclipse, but I always had rather bad opinion on Microchip tools.
Anyway I think that piklab is the only one that lets You do ICD debug on 8 bit PICs. The good news is that piklab lab can be build without GUI, then it can manage programming and reading of PICs, but no ICD. I don't know how problematic is porting to newer Qt, I've newer worked on GUIs.
To add something from me to the wish-list: I would love to have piklab without GUI, with gdb-like interface for debugging :-).
