Bug Description

This package is currently KDE4 based, and depends on the KDE library:

libkcddb4 (>= 4:4.3.4)

and recommends kio-audiocd

libkcddb4 is replaced by libkf5cddb5 in KDE applications 16.12 now in zesty proposed, and cannot migrate while sources such as this that depend on the old version remain.

libkf5cddb5 would also break the old KDE4 kio-audiocd which soundkonvertor recommends

libkf5cddb5 will be required by upcoming release of KF5 port of K3B which is the default and seeded cd/dvd burner app in kubuntu.

This also blocks The KF5 audiocd-kio now in -proposed, which is required for Dolphin (KDE/kubuntu) file manager to support CD extraction and format conversions.


I tested the Dolphin support for Jonathan after that sprint to confirm.

debian have not yet dealt with this issue as in unstable they are still on the older KDE applications 16.08.

soundkonvertor is not a upstream supported KDE application, and the KDE libraries it depends on will now be unsupported.

the soundkonverter developer has stated that they will not be doing a KF5/Qt5 port


Reverse depends: none
Source and binaries
Release: zesty

The KF3 KF5 port that is blocked by the libkcddb4 requirement of soundkonverter, itself includes the CD ripping functionality of soundkonverter.

Audio conversion is also well catered for in other applications in the ubuntu archive.

Please now remove. No upstream movement.
