Kaffeine on kde neon dev unstable doesn't have a TV Section
Can't watch tv without kaffeine !
Kaffeine doesn't have a tv section when ubuntu has kaffeine version 2.0.14 and has no problems at all.
Please fix kaffeine and Dvb-t tv playback support !!!!!

Same issue with Kaffeine Version 2.0.15-0xneon+18.04+bionic+build4, but the same version does have a TV section in other distros (eg. opensuse L150).
Boo Hoo, some of us miss our easy KDE desktop TV ...
However DVB-T does work with VLC, so Kaffeine TV may be possible. Good if someone could fix this.
In the mean time, to watch DVB-T with KDE neon+18.04+bionic+build4, use VLC instead.
Google it.

* or give w-scan a go, it's slow but it generates a VLC readable xml channels playlist. Save with .xspf extension and open with VLC.
Hope this helps a few other addicts ...

If you install the version for Ubuntu 18.10 (available from https://pkgs.org/download/kaffeine) you should get the DVB option back. It didn't work at first, so I deleted all the channels, then did a complete removal in Synaptic before installing the new version. It then worked normally.

Thanks. Neon is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, so:
Downloaded https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/18.04/ubuntu-un ... _amd64.deb
Installed with dpkg -i
Kaffeine DVB-T now works as expected.

One question (It is over 10 years since I used Debian, so very rusty!)
apt-get install -f shows:
Code: Select all
 The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  discover discover-data libdbusmenu-gtk4 libdiscover2 libqt5webenginewidgets5 libusb-0.1-4 linux-headers-4.15.0-34 linux-headers-4.15.0-34-generic
  linux-headers-4.15.0-36 linux-headers-4.15.0-36-generic linux-image-4.15.0-34-generic linux-image-4.15.0-36-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-34-generic
  linux-modules-4.15.0-36-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-34-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-36-generic
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 1 not to upgrade.

I expect some of these may be cleaned up with a restart, so I did nothing.
What would a competent Debian user do?

Thanks. Will do.

For the thread: Today Neon 'Discover' package manager offered Kaffeine version 2.0.15
Installed, but still no DVB-T section. (Just curious, but why is this so?)
Manually reinstalled kaffeine_2.0.14-1_amd64.deb, all good.

And another 'dumb' question.
I know it can be done in apt-get, but Is there a way to 'lock' packages (prevent install, update) in 'Discover'?

Hello
Being new with KDE Neon after a very long period about 19 years with Kubuntu (present version 14,04) i have to change. KDE impressed me much more than Kubuntu and I give it a good trial.

i am using a satellite TV installation and it seems I can not install the TV part. But as I need this possibility for my work, I am dependent of it.

What did I do?
… Install the application
­… copied the content of ~/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/sqlite.db
… Installed the firmware for my technotrend dvb-S at /lib/firmware the file dvb-ttpci-01.fw
…checked music and films from my computer, both work perfectly.

However, as I am not at all somebody to use the Konsole very often, practically only for installing programs, I did really not understand the above way around and hope that a good person will help me with it in Details.


Best greetings from Scotland's nicest holiday island.
Kubuntu 18.04, 64 bits, Nvidia 4800GS, 8MB Ram, 4 core, HP Monitor 2550 x 1600 pixels.

Don't recomment this way again cause simply it doesn't work everywhere in the world !
I have tried this so many years ago and until now w-scan can't find all greek channels it only find some (very few)
its not a solution unfortunately !
Kaffeine works fine now !
