Guys, How do I get pykde to use the right dcopobject.h from trinity svn in order to successfully build it after removing my prior kde3 install? I ask because I read that you MUST remove prior KDE3 installs before building trinity. I did that. I also patch qt3 for 3.3.8c and I have it installed. However when you run 'python configure.py' it grabs the kde4 install information: gcc version 4.5.2 concatenating files KDE base directory is /usr KDE include directory is /usr/include KDE lib directory is /usr/lib lib directory is lib <snip> and then fails during make because it can't find the right dcopobject.h: <snip> Creating top level Makefile... Creating pykdeconfig.py... make: Entering directory `/home/david/arch/pkg/trinity-notes/pykde3/src/PyKDE-3.16.7/dcop' g++ -c -Wno-deprecated-declarations -pipe -fPIC -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -Wall -W -D_REENTRANT -DNDEBUG -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -I. -I../extra/kde353 -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/python2.7 -I/opt/qt/mkspecs/default -I/opt/qt/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -o sipdcoppart0.o sipdcoppart0.cpp sip/dcop/dcopobject.sip:30:24: fatal error: dcopobject.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. make: *** [sipdcoppart0.o] Error 1 make: Leaving directory `/home/david/arch/pkg/trinity-notes/pykde3/src/PyKDE-3.16.7/dcop' make: *** [all] Error 2 I know I am missing something basic concerning setting up my build environment. I can't just add something like: -I /home/david/arch/pkg/trinity/kdelibs/dcop to the dcop Makefile because it then fails to find tqobject.h and so on. So I need a push in the right direction. Anybody have a reference, a link, or some notes squirreled away that would help cure my ignorance here? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm more than willing to RTFM, if I just know which FM to read :-) -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
