Re: problem installing kde4-l10n-en_GB-4.14.3

Sorry for the delay in responding. I've had very little time to devote to pkgsrc in the last month or so.

The problem I face is that the older base components of kde4 will not have the
message catalogues and so will require the application of the en_GB locale

I need to reinstall the pkg base from the packages build under pkgsrc to get a
consistent base again (I stupidly didn't note what I had deleted) and then
knock up a simple script to update /usr/pkg/share/locale/en_GB/LC_MESSAGES
copying any files over from kde4-l10n-en_GB which don't already exist. I think
that is the pragmatic solution - but not ideal.

Yes, I think that is what you need to do at the moment if you need the old locale files.

PS. It would be really nice if some other parts of kde could be brought up to
later versions - especially kdepim. I realise this is a *lot* of work, but
would be happy to provide some funding - maybe £1000 towards the effort. If
others chipped in maybe someone might think it worthwhile...

I will note that all of kdepim is in pkgsrc-wip. The only thing that's stopping it being committed to pkgsrc proper is a working qtwebengine rather than one that just compiles and any help in getting that going would be much appreciated (by many I'm sure).
