Re: Contribution help

Actually, with the help of IRC channel I figured it out and running current Plasma version in Git repo. 
Since I was running kdesrc-build without dependencies, It was trying to install It's DBus and polkit files to system directory (/usr). As you can guess it wasn't possible without root rights.
Compiling with --include-dependencies option solved the issue. I'm trying to understand the code and debug as much as I can. If I'm able to figure it out, I'll send a review request.

Thanks for  the reply

some part of it? Are packages provided (Qt, KF5) by my distro (Arch) okay?
If so, which ones are okay which ones are not?

Some parts of powerdevil require interaction with system dbus. Either install as root (using sudo), or configure your system dbus to look in some additional local prefix and install it into that prefix.

Which errors do you get? You can use paste.kde.org for longer error
