Implement Debian's Kaboom KDE Migration-Tool

Feature state

Rejected Information


kaboom is tool for migrating your KDE user settings and data files from KDE 3 to KDE 4. Depending on the options you choose, you may:

1. Use you current KDE 3 settings as initial for KDE 4.

2. Use your existing KDE 4 settings and replace current KDE 3 settings.

3. Merge current KDE 4 settings with current KDE 3 settings (experimental).

4. Start KDE with defaults settings and data.

We already have kde4-migrate, which performs 1. automatically on first login.

2. is not relevant to openSUSE as we have can both KDE and KDE4 installed in parallel, unlike Debian, so we keep .kde and .kde4.

3. is redundant because of 1. except the special case of merging settings from apps which, during the KDE 4 introduction phase, were not available for KDE 4. We'll extend kde4-migrate to cover these cases too for future opensuse releases.

4. Could be offered as an option, but is it necessary?

Eventually, when KDE3 is no longer available even in the Build Service, we will automatically migrate .kde4 to .kde and tar up the old .kde.

Cool, good news. kde4-migrate is fully automatic, I understand.
Do we know why Debian chose to build an interactive tool requesting user input?

I would like to know from which openSUSE version onwards it is shipped. I cant find it in 11.2M3 or on buildservice.

11.1 in kdebase4-openSUSE

There is no UI so you probably haven't noticed it run the first time you logged in.  I have to do some more work on it for KDEPIM for 11.2.
