Hi everyone !

I'm a long term KDE user (from the 90s) who happened to write some code, a loooong time ago (dropped development more than 10 years ago). In other words : I suck and don't plan to invest a lot of time :).

HOWEVER every now and then I stumble upon a bug that... bugs me and as KDE devs are extremely busy (and making great work) well, it doesn't necessarily gets fixed.

My last example is this bug : https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=370247 which seems to be extremely easily fixable (or not).

So I'd like to try & fix it myself instead of annoying people in bugreports, but I need a solution for lazy morons like me, to quickly set up a developement environment, modify a couple of files, build & test. Is it possible to set up a development environment easily under a virtual machine, based on KDE neon ?

Thanks a lot :-)
Best regards,
Mahen

As the Neon is using the Debian package management I would use the Debian tutorials. Picking one: BuildingTutorial - https://wiki.debian.org/BuildingTutorial .

Introduction

This tutorial is about taking an existing package, re-building it, applying changes to it, and preparing those changes so that you can send them to a bug as a patch...
