The K Desktop Environment is one of the earliest Linux desktop environments, dating all the way back to 1996, predating even the popular GNOME desktop environment, which was started in 1999. On Aug. 25, the core KDE desktop, Plasma, got an incremental update to version 5.4 that builds on the innovations that the first Plasma 5 release introduced in July.

I learned this the fun way, by bending one in a vice, with a big set of pliers. It went snap, tinkle — a different sound from other drives. And after that the bendy drive was usable as a maraca! So why was I bending drives in the first place? Well, I volunteer some of my time at a local second-hand place called Stichting Overal. It is an “idealistic” organisation that uses the revenue from second-hand sales to support various projects (generally small-scale development, like funding the construction of san...08.03.2008 Richard Dale: Adobe Flash on Linux is crap, will it damage the brand? I recently upgraded from Kubuntu Feisty to Gutsy, and all went well apart from one thing. Konqueror began putting up a crash dialog everytime it accessed a site with Flash, making it pretty much unusable. In fact until I had this problem I didn't realise quite how many pages on the web use Flash. So I searched for more info about the problem and found Lubos Lunak's blog Why Flash sucks, which described what went wrong. He says "The latest Flash update does not work with anything that is not Gecko-based." Well that's that then; they really don't seem to care about Konqueror support. Then I went...18.03.2008 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): magazine articles Today I went for a morning walk. It's one of those wonderful little luxuries that comes with the beginning of Spring weather for me: enough warmth not to wonder what the hell I'm doing outside, enough daylight to tease out a smile. I popped by Beano's to grab a coffee then popped into the news and magazine store around the corner with my cup o' joe in hand.I picked up two magazines to bring home: one is a boring business magazine (ok, I don't find it boring, but I'm pretty sure most people reading this blog would ;) and the other is Linux Magazine. On the cover is Tux the penguin with a superm...11.01.2009 Alexander Dymo (adymo): KDE 4.2 Review From Inside Out. Part 1 PrologueIt's probably the first time in my life when I'm writing a post with a word "Review", but looks like it's a perfect time to start doing that. Right now I desperately need to tell the world about KDE4, or to be precise, soon to be released KDE 4.2. This is going to be the first "real" release targeted not only at KDE developers and enthusiasts, but at general public - all the people who eagerly waited for the next KDE desktop to arrive. With this review I'd like to let people know that the KDE 4 is ready and to once again celebrate the hard work of all the people who put tremendous effo...14.11.2013 Responsible Evolution Plasma Desktop running on top of Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5 Exciting times. I am working on the lower-right corner of the desktop right now, and thought I could give a quick visual update of progress there, as well as some sense of direction where we’re heading, how the user interface evolves, Plasma’s new architecture, and underlying software stack and the device spectrum. A whole mouthful, so grab a cup of tea. Two areas in particular are catching my attention these days, the notification area (“system tray”, that row of icons which show you the status of all kinds of ...17.12.2009 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): the pulse December is almost always a hard month for me. Besides the seasonal brinkmanship with depression that I struggle with as the days dwindle away (something I liked a bit better about living closer to the equator in the past was not having to deal with that) it often seems to come with its own stew of drama. Some years are decidedly harder than others, and thankfully this one is somewhere in the middle of the pack. I'm looking forward to spending the holidays at my sister's (for the first time ever we'll get to do the Christmas thing together!) and things are looking like they are all coming toge...04.01.2010 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): ++2009; The first decade of the millennium (by our calendars, anyways :) is officially over and we're all going to have to get used to writing 2010 on things. I spent the last couple of weeks of 2009 taking a few personal days around the holidays as well as considering where we, KDE, have been and where we might be going. I wrote some notes at the end of it, and I thought I'd share some of it with all of you.We accomplished a lot in the last year, both as a community as well as personally. I'll leave the personal events, positive and difficult, to those who were involved, but try and cover some of the...08.01.2010 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quest: deployability Deployability. Is that even a word? :) I love it for how ambiguous it is, even though it's pretty obvious what it probably refers to. So what exactly was I thinking about when I put "Deployability" on my list?It is a potentially big topic. We could end up discussing user/group profile management and how we still don't have a KDE4 GUI configuration front end for Kiosk, like that KDE3 KioskTool, to make setting up such systems easier. (Side note: good news on the Plasma Desktop front! In KDE SC 4.4 will support all the Kiosk keys that KDesktop/Kicker used to respect.) While we certainly need som...08.11.2012 ending the cults of personality in free software Free software has a history of creating and supporting cults of personality. Since it is a widespread human phenomenon, it is easy to understand how this happens. It is, however, unhelpful and destructive and we really ought to actively discourage it, starting by putting aside the current cults.The most recent, though certainly not the only example, of this retrograde behavior was seen when Linus Torvalds started posting on Google+ about his recent sampling of various Free software desktop options. This made the rounds on various blogs, Slashdot, Linux Today, etc. Why do we care what Linu...
