Brendan Tildesley and Petr Hodina (ccd) have made great progress so far:  https://issues.guix.gnu.org/50862

Brendan's patches: https://notabug.org/Brendan/guix/commits/kde-updates
Petr has been rebasing them onto Guix: https://github.com/phodina/guix/tree/patch/plasma-mobile

I guess you can help them with testing and fixing builds, hopefully they are getting close.

Hi,

I'll send my updated patches on Friday. Those are rebased on Brendan's updates.

Thanks for your interest.  From my point of view, maybe you can resume
the work you mention, try to compile, try to fix and report the
blockers.

To emphasize this: Packaging the Plasma module is basically done. But 
making Plasma Desktop actually run is a major issue.

This branch intentionally is on 5.19, as the Readme says:

|Note 1: It might be worth making an older version of Plasma work, as 
this an older version has less dependencies. This is why this branch 
still sticks at 5.19.5. |

And to my experience Plama is a beast and taming it might be much easier 
when using a less beasty version. This is why I recommend sticking with 
this old version for now and update only after this works.

You can find the current state of Plasma in the „wip-kde-plasma” branch 
<https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/?h=wip-kde-plasma>.

The top-level directory contains a 00-README-Plasma.txt 
<https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/00-README-Plasma.txt?h=wip-kde-plasma>, 
explaining the current state in detail. The branch also provides some 
helper-scripts for testing, etc. I strongly recommend reading through 
all of these files to find the hidden gems ;-)

Basically there are package definitions for most of the Plasma packages 
(as of 5.19), kwin, etc. One of the files has a list of state per 
package. Anyhow I failed to make Plasma start the actual desktop.

I definitely agree that having a single place to coordinate all these efforts would be very beneficial since it seems to be currently spread out all over the place.

I also found the wip-kde-plasma branch in the Guix Git repository has some made some progress too. However, this branch has not been committed to in more than a year and only supports KDE 5.19.

referring back to the wiki discussion, this is a good example for the
kind of information that should be sitting on the KDE wiki page of
Guix. probably along a short summary of its status, and a list of
developers who expressed interest in working on packaging KDE.

such a page would greatly facilitate the cooperation/effectiveness of
the interested parties.  the ability to cheaply and dynamically spawn
a sub-mailing-list/comment-thread for such sub-projects would be icing
on the cake.

I don't know about Plasma, but Hartmut Goebel has some repository with
updates & 100 extra KDE packages
<https://gitlab.digitalcourage.de/htgoebel/guix-kde-package>.
The idea is to move them into guix
<https://lists.gnu.org/r/guix-devel/2021-01/msg00426.html>.  I don't
know the current status of that.

Hi! I'm glad to see there's somebody interested in KDE packaging.

Z572 have done some work here, and make kwin available on Guix.
https://github.com/Z572/guix/tree/kwin

Currently I'm planning to upgrade Extra cmake modules from 2.70 to 2.91
in upcoming staging branch. This will help us to package a more recent
version of KDE packages.

Can you figure out a minimal set of packages needed to run Plasma
desktop? We can add a milestone and checklist about it.

Hello!

I'm a KDE contributor and free software enthusiast, and I recently started switching over some of my systems to GNU Guix. However, as an avid KDE Plasma user, I'm a bit disappointed that Plasma doesn't seem to be packaged for Guix. I did a bit of searching and found that there has been some progress towards packaging Plasma:
- https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/gnu/packages/kde-plasma.scm
- https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2021-01/msg00426.html
