I upload a working patch to pastebin if someone wants to adapt this Package or to build it from source (

This seems to be a case of: do everything manually is much faster than the automated business which gets you in tons of troubles on a real world installation. It's only 2 lines "...return..." in beginning of main.C++ to comment out. There still remains a condescending warning though in need of removal. Power users will not be coerced by the KDE powers to be.

@Megver93: Now that you're back, is there any possibility of an update of this (and your kate/kwrite packages) to the latest version? :-)

Could you please include this feature to this package

Apart from adapting the PKGBUILD and the .SRCINFO files to the 18.08 version, the patch has to be changed like below. Then, you run 'updpkgsums' again and execute 'makepkg'. They added more lines in the new version and that's why the patch is now outdated. It builds fine for me like this. In fact, you only need the compilation of '' file and replace it with the original one. I hope it helps!

This package needs updating to the latest one.

Besides that, I tried adapting the PKGBUILD to 18.08.0 but patch the .diff-files fail as they no longer seem compatible with the latest release.

Thanks for the patches, this and Kate-Root are now my must have packages!
