How-To: Compile and Install Kaffeine 0.8.7 in Debian Lenny

Just a few days ago I reviewed Kaffine 0.8.6, which was supposed to be the last release for KDE3. However, according to the official website, there is more work at the KDE4 port so a new version, 0.8.7, was released for the stable KDE3. This new release includes several fixes and DVB features.

Kaffeine 0.8.7 on KDE 3.5.9

I noticed the bug crashing Kaffeine when clicking the Play Audio CD button when there is no audio CD in the drive is still there. Anyway, follow the steps below in order to compile and install Kaffeine on Debian:

Compile and install
This version will probably get in Lenny's repositories in about one week or so, however if you want to compile it by yourself, install the dependencies first:

apt-get build-dep kaffeine

Running the configure script

As root. Also, make sure to have the sources repositories enabled in /etc/apt/sources.list and the build-essential package installed. Next, download the source, uncompress the Kaffeine tarball and issue the usual:

make install

The last one as root. Kaffeine should be now installed in /usr/bin/.

Hmm, trying the same with 0.8.8 in ubuntu koala seems to run into the wall with the configure script not finding kdelibs ksock.h or ksharedptr.h, and I can't find where they are / what gives them.

the new 1.0 beta is just too crap
