Benjamin Meyer (icefox): Broken hand

System & Utilities


Broke my hand this evening and spent the rest of the day at the hospital, but I got the xray's on CD which is cool. I was in a bunch of pain after hitting my hand, but decided to go to the hospital a minute later when I noticed my knuckle was missing. I broke the bone attached to my pinky and the front part went down and slid under the back part. At the hospital they pulled the finger back out put a cast on my hand. So for the next three weeks I am down to only eight fingers. The best part was my irc message on #arora

[5:08pm] icefox_home: broke wrist
[5:08pm] You left the chat by being disconnected from the server.

Boy does it take a long time to type with one hand.

Albert Astals Cid (TSDgeos): Looking for PDF with JPX streams

System & Utilities Face of Albert Astals Cid (TSDgeos)I'm currently working on a patch for poppler that makes use of OpenJPEG to decode JPX streams instead of the xpdf inherited code because the inherited code does not work for some PDF and i think that there's no reason not to use an already existing solution if it works. And that's the question, i need more PDF with JPX streams to be sure my 170 lines of code + OpenJPEG can replace the 3200 of xpdf code without any regression.

So if you could

cd /
find -name "*pdf" -exec grep -H JPXDecode {} ;

or as said in the comments

locate -0 .pdf | xargs -0 -n 1 grep -H JPXDecode

and send me (aacid@kde.org) a link to the pdf or the file pdf itself of all the files that match.

Lukas Appelhans: Shaman RC1 released

System & Utilities

After just some days from Beta 3, we’re proud to bring you Shaman RC 1. We tried to make this release as bug free as possible, and we’re willing to release Gold in a short time.
Don’t get fooled by the relatively short commit log: there’s more than meets the eye compared to Beta3. All KDE4.1 users will be surely happy to see the huge progress the KRunner and the Plasmoid made. There were also some nice GUI improvements, and we finally fixed the odd sorting by size bug.
Also, we’re string freezed from now on, so please, contribute and translate!

Here comes the whole changelog:

Core:
- Better Thread handling when reloading packages view
- Corrected include guards
- Removed introspection in DBus system due to some custom code needed

GUI:
- Faster startup and no freezes thanks to better Thread Handling
- Avoid Horizontal stretching in Queue Dialog
- Port Messages to Utf8 where possible.
- Fixed sorting by size bug

KRunner:
- Fixed and stabilized ...read more...

Chani Armitage (Chani): let there be code!

System & Utilities

I just pushed the first bits of my soc code to my public git repo. :) the code is awful and hackish and probably has lots of problems besides those noted in the merge commit-message, but it runs and you can add widgets. :)

right now there are two main problems with it. first, the only way to stop it is with `kquitapp plasma-overlay`. it’s easy to hide it, but impossible to re-show it. second, when it’s started via the screensaver, it shows up *under* the screensaver. fun, huh? oh, and if you want to compile it, see README.git first. and be aware that it’s based on a copy of workspace/ that may not be entirely up-to-date (aren’t bic changes fun?). doing a git svn rebase seems to spew commit messages all over gitorious; I wish there was a way around that.

I’m hoping that ossi can help me get it running over the screensaver nicely, because that code isn’t always easy to understand. aseigo, ossi, sebas: if any of you have time, ...read more...

Cyrille Berger: Last week in KOffice...

System & Utilities The big news in KOffice this week is the released of a new Alpha. Among the nice stuff about this release, a lot of improvement on the odf support, sounds and notes in KPresenter. It's also the first release where we have binaries for three platforms linuxes, Windows and MacOSX.

But what makes me truly happy is that while KOffice, in general, is not ready to receive bug reports, since there are a lot of highly visible issues to solve, some applications are more ready, KSpread, Krita, Karbon and the report component of Kexi, and are open for bug reports, which is really exciting because it means we are getting closer to a final release.

Don't expect any update on what is going in KOffice from me in the next three weeks, since I will be in Paris without a KOffice build, and the European Football Cup will use a lot of my free time. But I expect to have a lot of bugs reports to close for when I go back in Toulouse ! So go testing ...read more...

Tom Albers: Wow, a new release of Mailody!

System & Utilities

It has been a while, but now the time has come. We have made a new release: 1.5.0-alfa1. I think it is fair to explain why it took a while.

After the last release we started to work on Mailody4, this is the KDE4 version of Mailody. A lot has changed in KDE and we needed to adapt to it and help to make that happen. Not only the API changed, so we had to change the code, but also the buildsystem changed to CMake. But those are technical details.

More obvious is that we are now share the settings for incoming and outgoing mailservers with KMail and the rest of KDE. This means that when you switch between KMail and Mailody, you will not have to re-enter your settings.

Another big, big change is Akonadi. This KDE framework will be released in KDE 4.1 and we depend on it. So that means we do not longer use a SQLite backend for storing/caching the messages, we now use Akonadi. As that software is not completely finished, this will ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): google gadgets

System & Utilities Face of Aaron Seigo (aseigo)Just so that people can stop emailing me one at a time ;) ... I grabbed the Google Gadget code the day it was released and spent some time that evening looking at it. It's written in C++ which is cool; on the other hand there's also well over 100,000 lines of code in there too. Much of it seems to be about replicating things Plasma already does for applets (list them, load them, etc).

There seems to be two routes to take, in any case, to get Google Gadgets into Plasma:

a) Link the code they've released into a Plasma::ScriptEngine plugin. This ScriptEngine would need to provide a subclass of the Host class and bridge that to QGraphicsView. It seems really bulky, though, and I'm not sure we'd get overly terrific integration with plasma. It may be fast to do, though.

b) Grab their custom JS hooks and, as we have with MacOS Dashboard Widgets, provide a PackageStructure plugin and then throw the content of ...read more...

Roland Wolters (liquidat): Future of FLOSS password storages: combined solution soon?

System & Utilities

kde-logo-official
In a recent discussion about the future of KDE’s password manager KWalletManager it was mentioned that it is currently discussed to share a common password manager across all important FLOSS projects. While there is no result yet this is indeed a promising - and necessary - development.

It started with a question by Michael on the list kde-core-devel regarding the possibility to switch KWalletManager’s backend to the Qt Cryptographic Architecture (QCA) entirely. Robert answered that there was indeed discussion going on during FOSSCamp to merge all existing solutions (KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice, Firefox) to make it easier for the user to use these applications, but also to have the ability to sing-sign-on (meaning one login as user, and than automatically login everywhere else), which is a need for modern desktops. Afaik Fedora also has this topic on its radar, and it would surprise me ...read more...

Trolltech merges with Nokia

But do not be scared, my open source friends. This means that Qt and Qtopia will continue to be developed, and have even wider recognition that it is the greatest cross platform GUI toolkit on the planet.

More info here

I am sure there will be more press releases coming soon, so I won’t comment on anything else that might happen. But I can say this, this merger is a two way street. i.e. Nokia wants to learn from Trolltech and Trolltech can learn from Nokia.

What I wonder, is if Nokia can make a rubber boot for my phone. After all, it has been fairly rainy here in Brisbane this year.

Remember, “Trolltech has benefited greatly from the feedback the community has been providing while using Qt to develop free software. We respect the symbiotic relationship Qt has with the community and we wish to continue and enhance this relationship.”

So, keep on hackin’ ...read more...

Richard Johnson: Hardy KDE 4.1 Beta 1 Completed

System & Utilities

YES! It took me long enough with all of the work that was going on at the same time, but I would like to present you the ability to test out KDE 4.1 Beta 1 in Kubuntu Hardy right now! It seems we have worked out a majority of the quirks, but I can’t promise you that you may not get an overwrite issue with dpkg just yet. I do think we got them all covered, but you may have something nobody else does, so we didn’t catch it. We have been testing these packages since Saturday/Sunday and I have updated them as people reported issues.

To top it off, I have also included the KDE 4 PIM packages that contain applications such as Kontact, KMail, KOrganizer, Akregator, and more! The package name to get all of that is kdepim-kde4.

So, to install and test these new packages, please add the following to your Kubuntu Hardy /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-members-kde4/ubuntu hardy main

Once you have done that and you already have a previous KDE 4 version installed, type ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): random bits

System & Utilities Face of Aaron Seigo (aseigo)
  • The KDE4 versions of libkdcraw, libkexiv2, libkipi and libksane have all moved into kdegraphics. They live in the libs/ dir together and will be part of the 4.1 release. This means that it's much easier for any graphics related KDE app to rely on these very cool libraries being there.

  • I got P. a proper skateboard, a helmet and pads. Time for him to rip it up. Pictures forthcoming.

  • While in Berlin, I helped a friend move house. Yes, I traveled (according to Marble) 7504.63 kilometers as the crow flies only to end up packing bags and boxes through the U train stations of Berlin. I thought it was hilarious.

  • Someone asked in my blog comments how often Plasma has appeared in my dreams at night. Answer: embarrassingly often. Weekly is not unusual. So now you know.

Michael Pyne (mpyne): Programming tips

System & Utilities Face of Michael Pyne (mpyne)

So I finally fixed a bug which has been causing some people a bit of grief, bug 160284. This bug involves crashes due to a couple of different things:

  1. A memory address was casted to a larger sized type, which was not aligned properly for that size.
  2. In addition, there were issues handling memory which was mapped from a file using mmap(2).

What’s the deal with alignment you ask? It deals with computer architecture. Pretty much every major computer architecture I can think of requires memory accesses of a datatype of a certain size to be on a memory address that is a multiple of the datatype’s size. For instance, if you were trying to read a 32-bit integer, the CPU would expect a memory address to be divisible by 4, since the integer takes up 4 bytes in memory.

Note that this is a glossing-over. Just because a datatype is 4 bytes long doesn’t mean that ...read more...

Ariya Hidayat: creating fancy screenshots with Screenie

System & Utilities

Screenshot of SpeedCrunch composed using Screenie

There are tons of open-source projects, on SourceForge, Google Code, etc. If you check a project, most likely you see the screenshots first (don't be ashamed, to look at a screenshot is human). And there lies the problem. There is a fairly small amount of coders that are both very good at writing codes and composing good-looking screenshots.

So we had a terribly hot weekend in Oslo. Too hot to be outside the whole day. So after populating the wonderful weekend with banana brownies (I still favor the one with mango, though), fresh chocolate waffles (let's see if I can still continue the Sunday morning waffle tradition), huge delicious pizza (as usual I underestimated the size), pasta bolognese ala myself (but still can't beat the best one, so I was told), every now and then my own interpretation of alcohol-free SOTB (guess what it is. hint: a cocktail of course), ...read more...

Zack Rusin (zrusin): Animated interfaces

System & Utilities Lately I've been writing a lot about frameworks, today I want to take a step back and talk about a "technique". "Drunken master"/"Praying Mantis" kind of foo pertaining to animations.

Over the years of writing animated user interfaces I've developed a set of rules that I follow when writing animations. It's been a checklist that I've been following almost religiously. Much like my morning list of "1) Open eyes, 2) Check for dead bodies in the bed, 3) Around the bed, 4) if 2 and 3 are negative brush teeth and take a shower, otherwise prepare for a very bad day", which is the main reason why I never had a bad day in my life. Which is another good lesson to learn - very low expectations make for a very fulfilling life.

I've realized that those rules might be useful to others so I'll write a bit about them today. I guarantee you that if you'll follow them the animations that you'll add to any user interface will not make any of your users want to stab ...read more...

Jonathan Riddell (riddell): Those Kubuntu Specs in Full

System & Utilities Face of Jonathan Riddell (riddell)

The Ubuntu Develpers Summit finnished a week ago in Prague. Unlike conferences, summits have written output in the form of specifications which form the basis for work on Kubuntu for the next six months. You can find the Kubuntu ones on this wiki page.

We started with kubuntu-release-schedule where we discussed the possibility of moving the Kubuntu release schedule to match that of KDE. We decided against this in the end, but I think it was a worthwhile discussion to have. There would be goodness in the form of the latest and greatest KDE with each release, but it would also be a more buggy .0 version, would mean releasing with a 4 month old platform and would be quite a bit of extra work.

Kubuntu Intrepid Version makes the decision to move to KDE 4 by default (anything else is history). KDE 3 libs will still be available for applications without a KDE 4 version, but the desktop ...read more...

Nuno Pinheiro (pinheiro): The shape of things to come

System & Utilities Probably by now most people have probably seen Marco Martin wonderful work on the new 4.1 theme I started on Tokamak in Milan.
Apart from the trivial artwork, it provides new theming possibility's into plasma. Like for example now clock pointers can have shadows ;).


So whats next?
4.2 Obviously!

I plan to spend allot more time working in plasma in the 4.2 series. And we have already started to work on those things we can improve :)This is just a first approach to some of the new concepts plasma introduces.

But this is all for the 4.2, for 4.1 there is still alot of work to be done before the artwork freeze so need to get back to it. ;)

Paul Adams: Let's Talk About Cake Baking

System & Utilities

Quality is a strange thing. Generally, it has two components (as I see it anyway):

  • The inhereted quality
  • The subjective quality

So, cake....

I'm partial to Devil's Food Cake. Seldom is so little food so calorific. Other people are maybe more inclined towards, say, Battenburg.

Generally, both these cakes have similar "inherited" quality characteristics: ingredients, recipe, skill of the baker etc. I hope we can all agree that with better ingredients in the hands of a skilled baker will generally get a better cake. For any given cake. Of course this becomes horrendously recursive; what are the inherited and subjective quality characterstics of the ingredients, baker etc?

There is a subjective quality issue here, though. I don't like marzipan. It makes me feel ugly on the inside. So Battenburg really doesn't do it for me. Devil's Food Cake, however, is gooey, comforting and massively fattening.

Of course, we have the same issues with our software...
