Martin Meredith: VB.Net just doesn’t cut the mustard for me

System & Utilities

So, this morning (or yesterday morning, as it is now!), my attention got drawn to Wolfgang’s post regarding VB.Net. While I understand his point, I’m not too sure whether I agree with it in it’s entirity.

When I first started programming, I learnt how to write Basic. I don’t mean Basic as it stands nowadays, but Basic as it was back then (or should that be BASIC?). I learnt to code while I was wheelchair bound, as my father thought it’d be something interesting for me to do. It taught me the basics of programming, and I stemmed from there, moving on to learn Perl, then PHP, then C, etc etc etc.

The first time I ever wrote an application for a Modern computer, I wrote it in Visual Basic. I loved it. It was so simple to use, and I could use everything I’d learnt (apart from stuff like Music Envelopes etc etc) with ease in it.

Since then however, the world of programming has moved on. People have discovered Object Oriented programming, and found new ...read more...

Michael Pyne (mpyne): Oh fun

System & Utilities

So after my latest X.org upgrade I forgot to recompile the xf86-input-evdev module as well. So of course when I ran startx again, my shiny KDE desktop came straight up… and I couldn’t move the mouse or use the keyboard. Drat.

Now I’ve been much more careful to cleanly shutdown KDE when possible ever since I started losing rc files with my previous filesystem. And besides which, I couldn’t use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace even if I wanted. So what I did instead was login with my laptop to try and shutdown KDE.

Of course, there’s still the tricky issue of how to cleanly shutdown your running session from a completely different shell. Luckily ksmserver (the process responsible for performing the shutdown) has a DBus interface:

kde-svn@midna ~ $ qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer
method bool org.kde.KSMServerInterface.canShutdown()
method QString org.kde.KSMServerInterface.currentSession()
method void org.kde.KSMServerInterface.logout(int, int, int)
method void org.kde.KSMServerInterface.resumeStartup(QString)
snip

Of course, that’s what I get when I run if from my current KDE session. I was worried that in my ssh shell there would be problems with accessing the D-Bus session. So imagine my ...read more...

Jesper Pedersen (blackie): KPhotoAlbum - now open for new contributions

System & Utilities

The last three years have been no fun in the history of KPhotoAlbum. We have
been struggling with porting KPhotoAlbum to Qt4/KDE4.

During that period we for sure have lost many users that got bored from the
lack of releases, and also many contributors that got fat up by
listening to me saying no, no, no and no again to new features.

Recognizing the enormous work the port would be, I had the strong belief
that the best path to getting through it would be to
concentrate on the port alone, and not get lost in a million new features
at the same time. I'll let history judge if that was a good or a bad
approach.

Anyway, now we are through, and a KDE 4 release have been a few month ago,
and new development has started!

To that end, I've spent the last week on adding a new section to the
website trying to help people get started with contributing
. Among

Lubos Lunak (Seli): KWin vs Firefox (or why there is the word manager in "Window manager")

System & Utilities

I found out today that two of my colleagues in the office have the same problem with Firefox - when clicking on a link in a mail client, their open Firefox is brought to the current desktop from wherever it was before. Rather annoying I guess (especially for the normal mode of operation with Firefox, keep-it-running-all-the-time-on-its-virtual-desktop), and I bet they've lived with that for quite some time already.

And handling this can be so simple. One of them uses KDE, so it was just switching to Firefox, Alt+F3/Advanced/Special Window Settings, enabling Desktop there, setting it to Force and choosing the virtual desktop it's supposed to be pinned to. Problem solved (or rather worked around, of course). The other one uses GNOME and I have no idea how to help him - Metacity itself does not have any such "advanced" functionality and Devil's Pie probably can't force settings. Bad luck. Maybe one really really long bugreport in GNOME bugzilla has a trick somewhere (the "fixed" resolution is unlikely to be it though, since it breaks other things).

Richard Dale: Selene - Cross-Toolkit Dialogs in C#

System & Utilities

When you develop a language binding you never know what sort of thing people will develop with them, and it's really fun when people turn up with something. Yesterday I was chatting with Tobias Kappe on irc and he mentioned his Selene project that allows you to create dialogs in C# that are toolkit independent.

Tobias said that he was learning the Qt api, and the project uses the GTK as an alternative toolkit. Here is an example of how you can combine both in a single source file:

using System;
using Selene.Backend;
using Gtk;
using Qyoto;

#if QYOTO
using Selene.Qyoto.Frontend;
#endif
#if GTK
using Selene.Gtk.Frontend;
#endif

Chani Armitage (Chani): and this is why we need the usability people (gsoc week 3)

System & Utilities

whee! I have a config dialog. it configures.
well, sorta. it still has a couple of bugs, “configure” and “about” do nothing, and you can’t turn off a plugin.

oh, and it’s ugly as sin.


don’t gouge your eyes out just yet, though ;) I promise it won’t stay like this. today I was focused on getting the insides working; tomorrow I’ll start working on appearance. last month I spent some time talking in #kde-usability, and came out with ideas on how to make a presentable UI.

it’ll probably require model-view, which I’m not really looking forward to. I’ll probably need some more help from usability people and people who have experience making a UI feel like KDE, too. but it’ll look better before it goes into trunk. :)

KDE Forum Staff (forum.kde.org): Goodbye, OhReally

System & Utilities Rob La Lau (OhReally), one of our forum admins and our project initiator had to retire from the forum team, unfortunately, due to personal reasons. He had done a considerable amount of valuable work to help the forums stand up on its feet, worked hard with Ingo, our other admin to have things shape up nicely, set up the forum team by inviting staff members to join, contacting dev teams to ask if they are interested for having dedicated forums, and other countless things that we have operational now.

We all will definitely miss his presence in the team. It was great working with you, Rob. Good luck!

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): KDE Forum - Congratulations

System & Utilities

Some months back, the KDE forums were re-launched under a community banner (they had previously been run by a third party), with a new and enthusiastic admin team. One of the first things the team achieved was the release of the forum software under a Free Software license (it was previously proprietary). And they haven’t sat still since.

One of the signs of the professionalism of the forum admin team (professionalism in the sense of upright behavior, reporting, being responsive end friendly and having a clear sense of purpose even in a volunteer organization) is the forum staff blog which posts staff goings-on or highlights particular topics. It’s missing the notice that one of the team needs to leave (for personal reasons), so I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Rob L. particularly for his work in re-invogorating one of the communication channels KDE users have amongst themselves and with developers.

Personally I’ve never liked forums. I remember using the phrase “loathe and abhor” ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): O noes! My business model!

System & Utilities

Spotted a peculiar and tendentious article on WebWereld (Dutch only), which suggests that Karl-Heinz Streibich of Software AG said that the (proprietary) software industry needs direct financial support. There’s no direct quote, though. The closest thing to a direct quote is the call for a “clear strategy” in Europe to strengthen the software industry.

I’m sure the Free Software world can come up with some good suggestions there. Skill building? Local autonomy? Escape from vendor lock in? All solutions for strengthening the European software industry at all levels and obtaining better software and promoting cooperation between public sector organizations.

I have not seen this mentioned elsewhere, so it may just be lousy sensationalist reporting.

Now, there is an EU software strategy being formulated. It tries to bring together the viewpoints of various parties on what to do with software. LinuxJournal does a nice piece on it, highlighting the tensions between the EU itself, real Free Software organisations like the FSFE, and proprietary software companies.

Richard Johnson (nixternal): Kubuntu and Apport love

System & Utilities

So, I decided to take all of the Apport related TODO items the other day and I am almost complete with all of them. Today I ported apport-qt to apport-kde, which means went from PyQt4 to PyKDE4 loveliness. Spent some time testing it and working out the bugs and I think it is good thus far. I am sure we will have to do some tweaks to it, but it is a great start.

Another item on the TODO list was to convert the Help->Report Bug… menu item to utilize Apport to file bug reports to Launchpad instead of going straight to KDE Bugzilla. In the future I will probably look at having both implemented, but that will need to be discussed further, probably with the KDE and Kubuntu people, as well as Celeste on usability.

Next step, something about all of the apps and Apport, so I will probably start working on hooks for the apps so we can get some better reports. Like always, I will keep you tuned in. Time for bed, good ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Travel and To-Do

System & Utilities

Spent yesterday in Germany. The usual applies: nice train ride and for once the ICE from Arnhem wasn’t horrifically late or broken down (for some reason the ICE in the Netherlands and on the stretch to Oberhausen is unreliable, but after that very good). Battery life of laptop pretty much as expected and published: a little over 2 hours. That’s fine for the purposes for which I bought it. Ridiculously pleased about German food. For some reason I nearly always leave a Dutch restaurant feeling like I got ripped off, while schweinhaxe (pork hock) and beer (I didn’t count, but it was tasty) seemed like an excellent deal. Thought a little about a To-Do list based on the hacking on KDE 4.3 that I’ve done recently — very often patches get delayed and then blocked because of freezes and then bumped to the next cycle and delayed again .. it’s a maintainence nightmare when fixes are not sent upstream (e.g. to KDE SVN).

Orville Bennett (illogic-al): Look before you leap!

System & Utilities

The following pertains to Aaron's blog post. It is in direct response to this sentence That means you'll look and work native on Windows, Mac, KDE and GNOME if you write using Qt. To which I replied via comment.

NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.
I've said it once and I'll say it a thousand more times: Qt does not look native on Mac OS X.
As a matter of fact it currently (4.5) looks like the bastard step-child of 10.3, 4, 5, and something else.

I can't exactly pin-point what something else is but it has to do with wherever those weird gradients in the title bar came from.

So please, stop saying that Qt looks native on a Mac. It doesn't. Furthermore it never will if people keep telling the trolls (Nokianites?) that it does.

Further even if (when?) the Trolls get that sorted, KDE will still be a big bundle of visual fail because of the requirement for Qt3Support. Using the Cocoa APIs, which I surmise is necessary to use replicate the ...read more...

It’s been a big few months, hence the lack of blogging!

In the this time I have:

  • Left my job at Mendeley working on a cool piece of research software. It was time to move on to other things and there are no hard feelings on either side, hopefully my work on there will continue to be well received and more Linux people (although Windows/Mac are also supported) will check out the cool Qt/C++ reference manager.

System & Utilities

Since everybody appeared to stay that I’m a moron for not having recovery tools ready, and that I’m a moron for not knowing how to recupere a merged 60gb ntfs partition with a 120gb ext3 partition ( that, by the way, I didn’t asked for the windows installer to merge ), only one thing to say: What a great and helpful community.

Pretty pitiful, eh? At least it's right around the advertised speed. (1.5 mbit down, 0.25 up) It seems that my parents didn't like the idea of being raped by the local cable company for internet, so they found the secret, non-advertised basic internet package which is probably the only affordable one. Unfortunately, our cable company is about the only company that offers internet out here, since we're too far away to get service from Verizon. Oh well.

Kent Hansen: Flippin’ Widgets (Medium Rare, Please)

System & Utilities

In Qt 4.6, QGraphicsWidget is gaining some new properties for transforming items: {x,y,z}Rotation, {x,y}Scale, {horizontal,vertical}Shear and transformOrigin, to be specific. How does this fit with the 4.6 master plan, the almighty Qt Kinetic project? Did someone just say “Like a glove! (Ka-bling!)“?! Yes, that sounds about right. Naturally I set out to use and abuse that shiny new stuff by means of states and animations. Seeing as I’m born flippy, a basic use case that came to mind was to create a widget that can be flipped between a “front” side and “back” side. Such a “two-faced” widget can (for example) be implemented as a QStackedWidget that contains the “front” widget on page 0 and the “back” widget on page 1. Flipping to the other side is then a matter of toggling the QStackedWidget’s currentIndex property. But obviously we want to smoothly animate this change, as failure to do so would kinda take the “flip” out of “flippin’” (ya know?). One way of doing it is to first animate the item’s yRotation from 0 to 90 (at which point the ...read more...

Richard Johnson (nixternal): Interrogation with Apport hooks - Qt Included

System & Utilities

Earlier today my buddy Martin Pitt blogged about how he needed a Qt developer to work on implementing the ui_question_choice() dialog. I looked through the code a bit this morning, and needed a little help right off the bat getting the GTK version running. One little thing I missed a bug report and Martin helped get it up and running. So as the day went on, storms came through, and for some reason I get in this storm hunter mode and nothing else gets done. Well, about an hour ago all the storms have cleared up and back to work I went. I spent about an hour, most of which was silly Qt Designer and layouts, which Kubuntu guys, I suck at, never listen to me brag about my Qt Designer classes again! The other thing that had me for a second was trying to iterate over a layout to get button statuses. After all was said and done, this is the little beauty that popped up when testing:

"After extensive discussion, the Chromium developers decided to build the Linux port with GTK+, the toolkit that is used by the popular GNOME desktop environment. This will eventually make it look and feel somewhat native on GNOME-based Linux distributions, such as Ubuntu."


The rest of the article goes on to document the woes of developing on Linux, including Ben Goodger's "situation is a clusterf*ck" comment about developing on Linux. It was the above quote that really struck me, though, as it's the right idea (to "fit in") meeting a ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Debugging hardware

System & Utilities

I mentioned that I had one machine that wouldn’t run OSOL 2009.6, so I did a little hardware debugging on it. Step 1 is, of course, removing all the bits that aren’t essential. So I stripped the machine down to two sticks of RAM on the motherboard and a CD drive, and lo! It booted and behaved normally. Step 2 was adding back RAM until it was full again (at 6GB). The reason to strip RAM at all is that I’ve had bad sticks in the past and some OSsen are picky, so I figured stripping down was possibly useful. And, having repopulated the RAM banks, things were still OK. So it must have been one of the two extra NICs — an RTL8100 and an RTL8169 — in the PCI slots. Left them out for now, since the on-board NIC was now supported. Chalk up another problem worked-around and not really fixed.

I have a stupid early train to Germany tomorrow, so just a few short notes on KDE 4.3-beta on OSOL: all graphicsview things seem broken. Using the ...read more...

Patrick Spendrin (SaroEngels): KDE on Windows is not dead yet

System & Utilities First of all, I want to say something about an article that has been released on the Linux Magazin - about the step down of Christian Ehrlicher as a developer for KDE on Windows.
This is not easy for us as Christian has done quite a lot of work in the background as making packages and fixing builderrors and bugs. This doesn't mean though that he has been the only one to do those tasks. The Amarok Nightlies have been done nearly totally independent of the rest by Bj

Artur Souza (MoRpHeUz): Netbook: Search and Launch

System & Utilities

The last week I started playing with SAL: the “Search and Launch” containment for the netbook project. It was really nice as I played with Runners and could finally understand some bits that were still inside a black box for me. It’s sooo easy to use Runners on your applications!

So, the main idea behind this containment is that instead of using a regular menu like Kickoff you would be able to just search for what you’re looking for. The regular desktop already uses this feature inside KRunner but just advanced users and a few beginners know about it and how to use it properly (besides the fact that it’s trivial to use) - it’s hidden and is only triggered by a shortcut or by the menu entry “Run Command” that is not so visible.

Right now, as you can see in the screenshot below (sorry, no videos as I need to recompile some stuff to make recordMyDesktop work again) I put an edit line widget to type the queries but later this will be inside the panel. The user ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Some notes on OpenSolaris 2009.6

System & Utilities

As I mentioned previously, I’ve updated some of my machines to OSOL 2009.6. Only some, though. It refuses to start on my AMD 760G based machine — gets through grub, shows the splash and then hangs. I haven’t sat down to debug that one. It does run quite nicely on my new laptop (some folks asked: it’s an MSI GX620, which is nominally a “gamer’s laptop”. Poor battery life, but I realised that I don’t use the lappy in planes and on the longer train trips I have there’s power. GF9600, P8600, 4GB, 320GB — it’s slightly more powerful than my desktop machines. The keyboard is OK, takes a little getting used to because some of the punctuation is slightly smaller than usual. It has a numeric keypad, which as far as I’m concerned could have been left out for some bigger keys. The machine is a little noisier than I might have wanted, too.). There’s also a really nice VirtualBox image for OSOL 2009.6. That one only gets you a text login, though.

On the KDE4 ...read more...
