missing kjots

I am about to configure my new shiny Netrunner 17 with Plasma 5 but I cannot find kjots :s - it’s one of the most important applications for me to customize and tweak a new system as it contains all my hints, tips, solutions, code snippets collected over years… :huh: Where can I find it? Maybe it isn’t a package of its own anymore and included in some other package? Which?

Kjots is no longer part of the kdepim suite, nor is it available as part of KDE Applications.
It is now a separate application like Amarok, Calligra, Digicam, K3b, etc.
Unfortunately, the separated version of kjots is not currently available in Ubuntu.


Thanks for your answer. Those are bad news… There doesn’t seem to be a kjots package for Plasma 5 by now… I wonder if it will be ported at all… Is it possible to install kjots of KDE4 in Plasma 5? Somehow? Or is there some other application that can import/display kjots notes/books?

Kjots has been ported and is now a separate application, it’s just not currently available in Ubuntu.


Sounds great, thank you :slight_smile:
Any hints for compiling?

Download the tarball: http://download.kde.org/stable/kjots/5.0.1/src/kjots-5.0.1.tar.xz
Extract it and open a terminal in the new kjots-5.0.1 directory.

mkdir -p build cd build cmake ../ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DLIB_INSTALL_DIR=lib -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF make make install

/media/disk2part6/Downloads/Plasma5/kjots-5.0.1/build$ cmake ../$pkgname-$pkgver \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr \ -DLIB_INSTALL_DIR=lib \ -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON \ -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF
CMake Error: The source directory "/media/disk2part6/Downloads/Plasma5/kjots-5.0.1/build/ -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF" does not exist.

These are variable names you need to change to real existing paths.
In general I would rather wait until someone packages the app if you are a beginner when it comes to compiling. (btw. I am almost absolutely sure you miss almost all dependencies)

You might be right about the dependencies, but the problem with the command were that I have to remove all the \ and the $pkg… completely without replacing it with anything.

The other problem seems to be that it requires KF 5.20. I have KF 5.18 :(.

[php]CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.2/Modules/CMakeFindDependencyMacro.cmake:65 (find_package):

Could not find a configuration file for package “KF5CoreAddons” that is
compatible with requested version “5.20.0”.

The following configuration files were considered but not accepted:

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cmake/KF5CoreAddons/KF5CoreAddonsConfig.cmake, version: 5.18.0[/php]

Oops, fixed my other post.

That’s strange, the CMakeLists.txt file is setting the KF5 version to 5.16, not 5.20.
