[14:13] [MountainX] where should I discuss Firefox-related KDE integration issues? The package firefox-kde-support appears to be broken for 12.04. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kmozillahelper/+bug/949949
[14:13] [ubottu] Launchpad bug 949949 in kmozillahelper (Ubuntu) "KDE support for firefox doesn't work" [Undecided,Confirmed]
[14:13] [Riddell] MountainX: debfx knows his stuff on that
[14:16] [Whois] debfx is ~firstname.lastname@example.org (Felix Geyer)
[14:16] [Whois] debfx is a user on channels: #kubuntu-devel
[14:21] [debfx] MountainX: kde support has been dropped in the firefox package so we'll remove firefox-kde-support from precise.
[14:24] [MountainX] debfx: wow, that's very bad news for Kubuntu :(
[14:25] [MountainX] debfx: do you have a link or reference for the backstory on this decision? What or who brought this about?
[14:27] [debfx] MountainX: the ubuntu firefox maintainer is no longer willing to maintain the patch (it has no chance of being accepted upstream)
[14:29] [MountainX] am I over reacting or is there a trend developing recently that looks bad for Kubuntu?
[14:30] [micahg] debfx: I assume that you or someone else have tried to figure out what it would take to upstream this support?
[14:39] [debfx] micahg: the kde integration was not written with the intention to upstream it
[14:40] [debfx] MountainX: the real problem is that mozilla doesn't care much about kde and no one from the community stepped up to write the necessary code for a proper kde integration.
[14:45] [Riddell] MountainX: you're over reacting
[14:45] [Riddell] debfx: do you know what suse do now for firefox kde integration?
[14:46] [debfx] Riddell: they still maintain the patch in their package
[14:54] [MountainX] Riddell: Yes, maybe I'm over reacting. But I'm in the midst of making a decision between opensuse and Kubuntu, and I just decided to go with Kubuntu. So this news (and Canonical's recent news) seemingly has a significant impact on me.
[14:54] [MountainX] I plan to invest the time to get deeply familiar with one distro, so I'm making a long term commitment. Really good GTK intregration is an important feature of a KDE distro to me.
[14:57] [tsimpson] the news from Canonical has no real effect on you, unless you wanted to buy commercial support
[14:57] [tsimpson] as for FF, the KDE support was always really just a hack, and that's just not good in production systems
[14:58] [tsimpson] there's nothing really wrong with just running the stock firefox if you want to use it, or any of the other browsers in the repositories
[14:58] [MountainX] yes, I do pay for a support contract and it is up for renewal in a couple weeks
[14:59] [MountainX] tsimpson: nothing wrong with it in Kubuntu unless you've used opensuse and gotten spoiled by the beautiful integration. ;)
[15:00] [debfx] tsimpson: the kde integration is a hack but that doesn't mean it's unstable, only that it's difficult to maintain.
[15:00] [tsimpson] if the patch is unmaintained, then it's not really justifiable to include it though
[15:00] [tsimpson] debfx: I didn't mean it was unstable, just not a chance it was ever going to be integrated
