[Bug 1540135] Re: Make this metapackage conflict with kaccounts-providers


Looks like we got a better solution. Please follow bug 1451728, I'm
closing this one as we won't make the packages conflict.

  Make this metapackage conflict with kaccounts-providers

Status in account-plugins package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Anyone that tries to install Kubuntu-meta, or from Kubuntu tries to
  install Ubuntu-desktop, will hit conflicts with accounts-sso providers
  in /usr/share/accounts/providers (and possibly in service files in the
  future). As a result, many automatic bugs are being generated on both
  packages relating to this conflict in both directions, below are the
  most popular ones for each:


  kaccounts-providers is imported from Debian directly without
  repackaging and Debian does not package the Ubuntu account-plugins
  anywhere. Upstream KDE is being forced to break accounts-sso standards
  and impose systemwide envvars to work around that this package should
  conflict with KDE's: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347219

  Either Ubuntu / Kubuntu should be amending the Debian package to make
  it conflict with these plugin packages when importing it, or the
  psmteam should make this package conflict with kaccounts-providers.
  The later would be less work, since account-plugins is only packaged
  in Ubuntu for Unity.

  This change is necessary in Wily and beyond since those are the
  releases shipping kaccounts-providers.
