Writing and reading code

System & Utilities

You’ve probably heard that a developer of an established software project writes an average of 100 lines of code (loc) a day. I can say that this applies to me. So if you write 100 loc per day, how many do you read? I would estimate that the amount of time you spend on reading and understanding code is significantly more than on writing code. You probably also spend quite some time debugging code.

If you spend so much more time on reading and debugging code than writing code, shouldn’t you put more effort in writing clean and debuggable code? The Samba codebase is pretty old, more than 15 years now. I would say we have some experience with bad code and we have started to write much better and cleaner code, because we have wasted so much time trying to understand and debug code. However there is still room for improvement. Lets take a look at the following C code snippet.


if (!a) {
return;
}

if (!b) {

}

if (!c) {

Are you a senior KDE developer? Join openSUSE Team at SUSE

System & Utilities

openSUSE Team at SUSE is looking for a senior KDE developer that is willing to join the company to work on openSUSE distribution and customer products where KDE technologies are present.

As those of you who are closer to KDE and/or openSUSE know, Will Stephenson has been leading this area the last few years. He is now facing new professional challenges within SUSE so we are looking for somebody that coordinates the openSUSE Team efforts related with KDE together with the openSUSE community, upstream and other SUSE Teams.

Our default openSUSE desktop, KDE, is obviously a relevant piece of our puzzle. But beyond pure KDE work, the selected candidate will also work in other areas of the distribution and will play an important role as openSUSE/SUSE advocate in technical forums.

openSUSE currently ships other desktops too so it will be important for the selected candidate to drive high levels of cooperation with the openSUSE GNOME (and others) team and upstream in cross-distro development efforts.

FontForge: Rolling Type Design with No Save Using Collab

System & Utilities

FontForge has some support for collaborative type design. It's early days, but things are moving along in the right direction. In order to test things I've been looking at the python scripting support with an eye to moving control points around etc, or doing design and modification from the script and having the collab server keeping up with things. This way I can "save" the type that is being designed at certain points and compare the saved font with that I would expect the result of multiple collaborators (the previous python scripts) should be. Automated testing for the win!

So, No Save is only for the "doing" scripts. I of course want to save the current type at my leisure :)

You might be wondering what a script that creates a glyph might look like. I had to do a bit of trial and error to figure out how to use the scripting API myself. With that in mind, I might roll some of my scripts into the mainline FontForge git repo so others can enjoy the little ...read more...

Luminosity of Free Software, Episode 9

System & Utilities

Today I will be recording the 9th episode of "Luminosity" and it will be a short episode, in part because of time constraints I'm facing today but also because I'd like to experiment with the setup of the show to see if it can fit into a 30 minute form and how the viewing audience finds that.

So .. there will be only one topic this week plus the usual Q&A session:


  • Mer: A (not so) new (mobile Linux) hope. The project and the community, a history and an update. We will look at what the Mer project provides and who uses it, visit the community structure and introduce the brand new build service that rolled out to replace the MeeGo build service that is being closed down.
  • Q&A: Ask me anything, and I might answer it .. history shows the likelihood of that is actually pretty high.
See you there on Google+ Hangouts at 20:00 UTC. Chat and questions can be found on irc.freenode.net in #luminosity.

New Text Folding in kate.git master

System & Utilities

In the kate.git master branch the text folding is now new and shiny.

In addition to be faster and less memory hungry (no folding tree is around if you fold nothing, it is only created on-demand exactly for the folded regions), the new code is less complex and smaller (and hopefully better documented + unit tested, it actually has a test for most internal operations).

There is actually now a clean separation, the folding does not mix with highlighting and can be used without it, too.

This allows for a better integration of indentation based foldings like in Python (and already fixes the most ugly miss-placements of folding regions there) and empowers the user to fold arbitrary regions manually.

This can be done at the moment with two kate commands (for the F7 command line):

  • “fold” will create persistent fold for the current selection, this fold will stay until next reload of document (will implement some dfold command later, to delete it)
  • “tfold” will create temporary fold for the current selection, this fold will disappear again on unfolding

This should allow ...read more...

Plasma-nm preview

System & Utilities

Hi,

I’d like to show you what we are doing for network management in KDE. With Lukáš Tinkl we started to write a new plasma applet for managing your network connections. It’s a long road to have some stable release or something for daily usage, but we have already wired and wireless connections and some basic functionality for other connection types. The entire applet is written in QML except for C++ model and some classes for working with NetworkManager. For that purpose we are using libnm-qt library which is Qt library for NetworkManager. We are also working on a new connection editor which will be as a standalone application. This editor uses some components from the old Plasma NM applet but it’s redone to use libnm-qt library.

If you want to try it, you can get it from our git repository git://anongit.kde.org/plasma-nm.git and you should disable the kded module from the old Plasma NM applet but we are not supporting secrets for VPN connections for now.

You will have to also compile libmm-qt git://anongit.kde.org/libmm-qt.git and libnm-qt (settings ...read more...

Fixing a subtle animation bug in Dolphin

System & Utilities

Noticing the bug

Some time ago I worked on a problem with the mouse over animation in Dolphin. It was mostly visible with hidden files, because icons for hidden files are semi transparent. The bug caused icons for hidden files to "blink" when one moved the mouse over them.

I thought the fix was simple, filed this review request, which got in.

But that was too easy. Two weeks ago it was pointed out to me that the fix was wrong, and was causing a blink at the end of the hover animation. It's the kind of subtle bugs which you don't see at first, but can't ignore once it has been pointed out to you. Here is a short video demonstrating it:

dolphin-before.webm

Understanding the bug

How does one debug such a bug? If you are smart enough, you look at the code, let it sink in you and at some point yell: "AH! THE BUG IS THERE!"

On the other hand, if you're like me, you need more information. Over the years I built ...read more...

A fresh new KMix

System & Utilities

KMix is KDE’s forgotten redheaded stepchild.

Humble beginnings

It is old, has been maintained my Christian Esken since early 2001, and has grown organically. Through no fault of Christian’s or anyone else’s, it is buggy, messy, and nobody else wants to help fix it, or at least has the constitution to do so.

Us redheads need to stick together.

At last year’s Randa, I started working on refactoring and rebuilding KMix from the ground up. Why should adjusting the volume in your desktop be so frustrating? It shouldn’t, thats why.

KMix is back with a new edition~

That is the prototype for the new KMix. The UI design has been shamelessly stolen from pavucontrol:

Luminosity of Free Software, episode 8

This week's Luminosity of Free Software show will be recorded tomorrow on Friday, instead of the usual Thursday time slot. I have another engagement tonight, and it will be interesting to see how viewership changes, if at all, on Fridays.

Topics tomorrow will include:

  • Plasma Media Center: .. or "PMC" as we lovingly refer to it, had its first stable release this week We'll take a peek behind the scenes to see what drives it. We'll also glance at it's goals, purpose and future.
  • freedesktop.org Summit: If you haven't heard of this event that's happening in three weeks time, don't feel bad as it wasn't announced very broadly at all. I'll share with you what I've learned about the event and speculate on what we can hope to come from it.
  • Lernstick: Not just "Bootable Linux on a USB device", but also a log in key that can automatically create the user on the stick and mount the USB device as the home directory. Pulling this off is trickier than one might think. I'll examine how this device designed for ...read more...

Have you heard of Tanglu?

System & Utilities

If not, read this. This sounds like it's going to be an awesome project, and I'm going to contribute in any way I can.

To quote some highlights from the initial announcement:

Tanglu will be based on Debian Testing and follow the Debian development closely. It will have a 6-months release-cycle and it’s target audience are Linux desktop users. We will make installing and setting up the distro as easy as possible. 
Tanglu will be usable for both developers of upstream software and the average Linux user and Linux newbie. This is possible because in our opinion developers and users don’t have different needs for a desktop system. Both kinds of users like a polished desktop which “just works”. We will, hwever, not apply any kind of fancy modification on upstream software, we will basically just distribute what upstream created, so users can get an almost “pure” GNOME and KDE experience.
Tanglu is designed to be able to solve the issue that Debian is frozen for a long time and Debian Developers can’t make new ...read more...

Google Reader’s sunset is the dawn of ownCloud News

System & Utilities

This post is dedicated to the memory of Aaron Swartz. Among all his contributions towards a more open Internet, Aaron was also one of the creator of RSS 1.0. Thanks, Aaron.

The first news of the day is that the fantastic ownCloud community has released ownCloud Server 5.0.0. Congratulations everyone!

The second news is that Google has decided to power down Google Reader. This is a sad news for the users of the Reader, but it’s a great opportunity for ownCloud! Google Reader will cease to exist on July 1st and their users are looking for alternatives. As you already know if you have been following this blog, in the last year I have been working on an RSS/Atom reader for ownCloud (News app). The project started as a Summer of Code project sponsored by Google itself. Actually, the original idea and most of the design choices were inspired by Google Reader. It couldn’t be otherwise, since I have been a user of that service myself for long time.

As easy as 1, 2, 3…

System & Utilities

Hello every one,

 

I have just tested the new openSuSE 12.3 version by making an upgrade on my laptop.  After having updated it by doing:

zypper refresh zypper up

I upgraded it by doing:

sed -i 's/12.2/12.3/g' /etc/zypp/repos.d/* zypper ref zypper dup

 

You can find a larger desciption of the way to proceed on the official suse wiki upgrade page. I had no errors, and after having rebooted my computer I had WOUAW the best KDE integration ever. No personnal settings had been changed so I directly felt at home.  I’m really happy of open SuSE 12.3 which is really cleaned and polished! I have to test it a little deeper, but after my first overview, I had to blog it!

 

I also recommand this good article about opensuse 123 getting better and better! I do agree with all the points he developed and it’s interesting.

 

Thanks for reading.

ownCloud 5 released: a vision realized, a vision expanded

System & Utilities


Today we released ownCloud 5, a very important milestone for the ownCloud community and perhaps the most important release so far. But before going into the details I want to take a step back and look at what the original idea of ownCloud was at the beginning.

The idea of ownCloud was and is to enable everybody to host, control and sync and share their personal data without giving control away to the big data silos like Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive and iCloud. I think today we have all the features in place to say that we reached this goal. Everybody from a home user to a big enterprise can host their own personal cloud installation. I'm also super happy about the integration into KDE and GNOME because this is important to provide a really seamless experience for users.

It's a coincidence that CERN invited me to give a talk about ownCloud and data silos that I will give here in a few hours at the exact same day ownCloud 5 is released. CERN ...read more...

GetHotNewStuff (GHNS) support with a custom server and OCS rant

System & Utilities

For up- and downloading documentation files in kdev-python, I wanted to implement support for the KDE GHNS dialog (you know, this thing). In addition to a good GUI dialog which makes it easy for people to generate raw versions of docfiles and edit them a bit, this could be quite effective in supporting binary python modules correctly in the IDE. Sounds easy enough to do, right? The widgets are there... so just use them. It's not quite as easy tough...
Most applications which use the GHNS widget host their data on kde-*.org (e.g. kde-look.org for wallpapers). However, I didn't want to do that, because

  • I don't think this program's data is particularily valuable to be browsable (is that even a word, browsable?) on a website like that -- it's not what people are looking for, it's nothing you would see there and say "hey cool, I gotta download that and try it"
  • The sites are not maintained by KDE, and are sort of closed -- I can't access the underlying data with a script easily, but I'd ...read more...

Me again. I haven’t been online for a week – went on some pub crawls in Dublin : ) – so I haven’t been able to reply to the comments to my last post which showed some nice things coming to Plasma.

BSmith1012: I love the simplicity and extra effort you put into making it flexible. I know how much you hate icon views, and yet still made it possible to use in your example, so I appreciate that.

the case: brand

System & Utilities

This is part of the "Case for KDE" series of blog entries in which I explore various non-technical aspects of KDE. What follows are my personal thoughts and observations rather than an officially sanctioned position statement by the KDE community.

I figured I would start with the topic of branding as it is a fairly simple topic .. a nice way to ease into this little adventure. It's also a topic that has been getting increasing amounts of attention in the Free software communities in the last few years as products become more successful, projects progress and more companies appear on the scene.

So where does KDE stand on branding?

Brand as Reflection

Branding is used to communicate a message to the outside world. "What message?" is the million dollar question. Some use branding as a way to project an image of what they wish to be, sometimes without concern about whether that is reality or not. Some use branding simply as an abstract identifier that says "This is us" without embodying a given message. Others use branding to ...read more...

Divisive Leadership

System & Utilities

Mark says that Jonathan is being a divisive leader.

So, Mark, let us take a step back and look at what actually happened.

Kubuntu has always taken pride in being the link between the Ubuntu and KDE communities, and looking out for each’s best interest in order to facilitate the creation of exciting and revolutionary free software products. Jonathan personally has been a great advocate of the Ubuntu way even at times when KDE did not find it appealing; right now appears to be such a time.

Recently members of the Ubuntu community raised concerns about the path we are on as a project and Ubuntu Desktop as a product that Canonical has a great interest in. Not because they were being melodramatic, or because they disagreed, but because presenting divisive software after 8 months of development as a new key part of the software stack is nothing more than infantilizing the community.  Jonathan as a result suggested to join a different part of the Ubuntu project rather than leaving altogether.

You may think that KDE and other upstreams failed to deliver what ...read more...

March Updates to KDE Plasma and Applications

System & Utilities

Packages for the release of KDE SC 4.10.1 are available for Kubuntu 12.10, 12.04 and our Raring development release. You can get them from the Kubuntu Backports PPA for 12.10 and 12.04.

Bugs in the packaging should be reported to kubuntu-ppa on Launchpad. Bugs in the software to KDE.

Ubuntu is Many Communities

System & Utilities

KDE Project:

Some people mis-read (or I mis-wrote) my previous blog as critisising Ubuntu for not caring about its community any more. That's not what I wanted to say and it wouldn't make any sense, Ubuntu is a large community, it can hardly stop caring about itself. Rather I was saying that Canonical has done some moves recently which show a lack of concern for the Ubuntu community. Numerous other blogs on Planet Ubuntu say the same thing today. Mark did too today by saying that Canonical is taking more of a lead in development because GNOME and KDE et al were failing to take over the world, an entirely sensible decision to make. So if you want to be able to take a strong part in contributing then Ubuntu Unity is not the best part of Ubuntu to go. That's fine as there are many parts which are waiting for more people to help out, ...read more...

Thoughts and worries about the proposed new Ubuntu processes

System & Utilities

Today began in a virtual UDS session (Google Hangout) with the Xubuntu team. The video can be seen here: http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1303/meeting/21666/community-xubuntu-contingencies/ . Xubuntu devels stopped by #kubuntu-devel and asked us to bring our list of concerns to share. The list we developed:

  • The new system will do away with releases for each upstream KDE release, which is a prominent feature of Kubuntu. One idea is to do releases of LTS+PPA with latest KDE but that's against policy and needs technical changes to make happen. Or will there be a way to create ISOs from PPAs?

  • Mir is a worry since KWin will clash with it (a compositing manager inside a compositing manager). How good will continued Wayland and X support be?

  • ...read more...
