Description Bugzy 2015-04-02 16:07:05 UTC
Description of problem:
After installing plasma-5 from copr dvratil/plasma-5, the kio-extras package forces the removal of kio_mtp. Once the upgrade has taken place, dolphin and all of plasma 5 can no longer detect mtp devices that are plugged into the system, and using the "mtp://" protocol in dolphin's path bar returns "invalid protocol."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install plasma-5 packages from dvratil copr or from rawhide.
2. Plug in mtp device

Actual results:
Nothing happens

Expected results:
1. Notification that a device has been plugged in
2. mtp device is listed in dolphin's panel under devices 

Additional info:
-For some reason, Amarok (the audio player) is still able to list the tracks from the attached devices. My guess is that Amarok does not use kio to access mtp. It probably depends on libmtp directly.

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2015-04-02 16:09:58 UTC
kio_mtp being obsoleted here is probably a packaging mistake, I'll work to restore it.

Comment 2 Daniel Vrátil 2015-04-02 16:24:07 UTC
The obosoletion in Plasma 5 is correct, kio mtp is part of kio-extras. However it appears that we are missing BR libmtp-devel in kio-extras, so the KIO slave is not built :)

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2015-04-02 16:29:24 UTC
A kf5 kioslave is not functionally equivalent to a kde4 kio slave, is it?

(I'm assuming the answer is no)

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2015-04-02 16:30:36 UTC
For example, can kde4 applications use kf5 kio's?

Comment 5 Lukáš Tinkl 2015-04-02 22:51:35 UTC

> For example, can kde4 applications use kf5 kio's?

Nope, KDE 4 apps can't use kf5 KIO slaves

Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2015-04-02 23:50:34 UTC
So it's incorrect to Obsolete the KDE 4 kio_mtp.

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2015-04-03 11:45:59 UTC
I'll take care of it today.
