Krita 2.8 (prealpha): New "pseudo-infinite" canvas feature

System & Utilities
— "Darn it! Again no space on my canvas for the feet! What now?"

Does this sound familiar to you? Does going to the canvas resize dialog break your workflow? Don't be frustrated anymore! Now you can just scroll down, click and... Presto! Add those happy feet to your drawing!

Now if you scroll the image behind the edge a wide button appears which you can use to expand your image up to the size of your screen!

Mataro Sessions II: the breakouts

System & Utilities

KDE Project:

Notes from breakout on Homerun:

  • Needs to move to Extragear
  • no upstream designer in Plasma so hard to change fundementals like app menu
  • KWin would be against it as default, uses full screen blue, no visual consistency between it and dashboard
  • Does not show app generic names
  • netrunner says full screen is distracting for a menu
  • no filters
  • no recent apps

Notes from breakout on High DPI sceens:

  • see the wiki page
  • faking it with large font not really accurate, many more problems, see screenshot
  • needs someone with a high dpi monitor to test and fix

Upcoming Krita 2.7: Updated Drag & Drop and Clipboard functionality

System & Utilities

Recently we spent some time on polishing the Drag & Drop and Copy & Paste functionality in Krita. It turned out that these simple things are very important for users, since they allow integrate Krita into user's workflow better. It's a pity we were not able to pay much attention to them for some time, so as time passed they became a bit buggy. Now the bugs are gone and I can say for sure that there is no bugs in these systems! (at least bugzilla and me don't know any :)

Here is a short list of capabilities you can use to integrate Krita into your workflow (will be publicly available starting from Krita 2.7 Beta 2):

  1. Clipboard. Now the pasted image always gets centered right. And thank to the patch by our new contributor Sahil Nagpal the Custom Image dialog doesn't go insane when finds something in the Clipboard :)
  2. Drag-and-Drop of Image-objects. You can drop any image (from Gimp or Chromium) to Krita canvas and it will be centered in more...

colord-kde 0.3.0 released!

System & Utilities

It’s been a while since I want to do a new colord-kde release, the fact is that there is still some stuff to do and I have to balance the time between a bunch of other stuff I do in parallel, I just found boring stick to one thing at time :)

This release is very recommended as it has lots of fixes compared to 0.2.0, some distros shipped backports to some of those issues but over the last week I have fixed even more stuff. Here is a quick list of changes:

  • Lots of new translations (thanks to KDE tranlation teams)
  • Fix setting an ICC profile while KDE SC is starting
  • Fix setting the ICC_PROFILE X atom that applications like Krita, digikam, gimp use (I was impressed by how long it took to some user actually notice this but I just guess there aren’t many users doing color correction on apps…)
  • Add a mimetype handler to handle ICC profile files, so that when you click on an ICC file a dialog asks you if more...

A (half) week in Brno with Metalworkers

System & Utilities

Looking back, I think it might be 9 months since my last “real” post. Oh, well. I have to admit my personal/work commitments (which I’m gonna be writing about soon) took me away from blogging.

Anyway, what better occasion than the latest Solid sprint could have brought me back to blogging? Many of the participants already wrote a report, so I’ll just give you an overview on how things went from my point of view.

First of all, this sprint had a peculiarity compared to our last ones: lots of new people and new faces. I can’t stress how awesome it is to have new skilled and committed metalworkers. Secondly, it has been great to see more people seriously committed to powermanagement, which up to last year has been a pretty much solo effort. Oliver, Lukas and Alex have been invaluable in helping fixing bugs, refactoring the code and adding new features. So, a quick list of what we have done:

  • Refactored the logic parts of core vs. actions. The core now (finally) acts as a pure policy handler, more...

News in kdepim 4.11: Improve sieve support (2/2)

System & Utilities

When we want to create a script sieve, we need to know Sieve language, and we don’t use all days this language so it’s easier to create typo and error.

So I decided for 4.11 to create an assistant to generate sieve code.

By default end user prefers to use GUI to create filters (as sieve script is using for filter mainly). In KMail filter GUI is good. So I decided to use same interface.

This interface is separate in 2 elements:

  • List of scripts: we can add several scripts
  • And a second element which show conditions and actions.

I tried to add all sieves specifications and some sieve extension.

It supports default sieve specification:


  • fileinto (move mails to specific folder)
  • discards (discards emails)
  • keep (keep emails here and stop action)
  • add flags/remove flags/set flags (add/remove/set flags)
  • redirect (forward emails)
  • reject (reject emails)
  • stop (stop script execution)


  • size (test on email size)
  • address (test address)
  • header (test headers)
  • envelope more...

Dropbox in Kubuntu Raring

System & Utilities

Upgrades to the release candidate today went swimmingly. I tested on both this laptop, using the 64-bit release, and on my netbook for the 32. Everything is gorgeous. KDE 4.10 is like butter.

However, dropbox stopped working. A quick google later, and by using the code from the GetDropbox site, and instructions on setting up auto-start from Richard's (Nixternal) blog, I once more have a working dropbox, on both test boxes. I use it often to share docs between my computers, and the occasional file with the public.

Quoting from :

The Dropbox daemon works fine on all 32-bit and 64-bit Linux servers. To install, run the following command in your Linux terminal.
cd ~ && wget -O - "" | tar xzf -
cd ~ && wget -O - "" | tar xzf - 
Next, run the Dropbox daemon from the newly created .dropbox-dist folder.
 What you need from Nixternal's blog is the section Configure Dropbox to run at start-up. It would be great to have kfilebox again, but until more...

Luminosity of Free Software, Episode 11

System & Utilities

After a week away at an intense dev sprint in Germany, I'm back in the home office and that means another Luminosity of Free Software episode!  This week on the menu are:

  • Riak: a distributed data store that strives for eventual consistency rather than ACID. Inspired by the CAP theorem, this key value store is aimed at big data but is really fascinating for anyone with even a passing interesting in computer science.
  • Little boxes: We all know how fun the Raspberry PI is and the utility one can get out of an Arduino. What would be possible with higher-spec devices with more useful base configurations that were still affordable and completely driven by Free software? That's the question I found myself asking the other day.
  • KLyDE: This is an attempt to package KDE's Plasma Desktop in a more conservative way with a goal of trading out features for resources. We'll look at what they are actually dong, how it works with the Plasma Workspaces as they are now and what sort of impact this kind of effort could more...

C/C++ Hacker looking for next project

System & Utilities

I recently added initial support for real time collaboration in fontforge. This was followed by the wonderful fortune of presenting the work at the Libre Graphics Meeting last week.  Having collab in fontforge allows you to create and edit glyphs and have other fontforge instances in the collab session see your changes in (near) real time. There is also support for python scripting, so you can have one fontforge instance be a headless scripted one which continually creates new ttf files as you edit a font. Using collab with scripts like this allows for possibilities which didn't exist. For example, the ttf generation can take time, and doing it each time an edit is made in the fontforge process that is editing a glyph would be too slow. Even saving the font to SFD/UFO each edit so you can fork() and create the ttf would be too slow. The Collab support is needed to allow the user experience of editing glyphs not to bog down.

I'm now working out what I'll be hacking on next. If you are looking more...

ownCloud News app alpha-2 release (guest post by Bernhard Posselt)

System & Utilities

In this post I hand over the floor to the co-maintainer of the News app Bernhard Posselt (Raydiation). Bernhard is a software engineering student at University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. As an intern at ownCloud inc., he is the man behind the new ownCloud appframework. He is also involved in the coding and the design of the Notes app and in lots of user and devs documentation for ownCloud.

This is my first real report on the progress of the News app (I’ve escaped Alessandro’s requests to write a blog post quite a few times already :D). I’ve joined as a co-maintainer back in last August, because I was looking for a replacement of Google Reader. I’m a heavy Google Reader user so this app better becomes a solid replacement! ;)

In this post I am happy to announce the second (and last) alpha release of the News app. It is already usable and the core features are implemented, but there will be some rough edges and bugs and we may add small improvements in more...

openSUSE 12.3 installer formatting encrypted devices

System & Utilities

Hi, this morning I wanted to replace my openSUSE 12.2 by openSUSE 12.3 doing a fresh installation from a USB-stick (using a recent image of a KDE-live system). I am using an encrypted partition to store the volumes of a LVM-volume group (root, home and swap). root should get reformatted (from btrfs back to ext4), but of course I chose to keep my home-partition, it should get reused without being formatted. I entered this setup in the graphical installation program (YaST installer). I had done that before, quite often, what should go wrong? I went on not noticing the entry “Set up encrypted DM device on /dev/sda2”. What does that mean? Will it create some entries in configuration files for handling the encrypted device? No, it means that it will try to reformat the entire encrypted partition using “cryptsetup luksFormat” thus wiping out all volumes stored there although it was only told to format a single volume. Of course my last backup was quite old… but I was lucky: When reinstalling I always mount my home-partition–for accessing my files more...

Short Tip: Check configured virtual hosts in Apache

System & Utilities

Whenever you have to debug virtual host setups in Apache, checking the actual running virtual host configuration is a good first step. This can be done with the -S option used on the Apache binary: It lists all running virtual hosts and performs a syntax check.

On Fedora, RHEL, CentOS the Apache binary can be found on /usr/sbin/httpd:

# /usr/sbin/httpd -S
VirtualHost configuration: (/etc/httpd/conf.d/me.conf:5) (/etc/httpd/conf.d/others.conf:1) (/etc/httpd/conf.d/others.conf:38)
Syntax OK

On Debian systems the call is almost the same, you just have to source the environment variables upfront, and the binary has a different name for historical reasons:

# source /etc/apache2/envvars
# /usr/sbin/apache2 -S
VirtualHost configuration: (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/me.conf:5) (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/others.conf:1) (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/others.conf:38)
Syntax OK

you might run into an error about user names, in such cases it is helpful to call upfront.

Dolphin bugs fixed in March 2013

System & Utilities

Here is a summary of the bug fixes that Dolphin users who upgrade to last week’s release can benefit from:

  • Bug 288824: Fix the problem that no custom icons are shown for folders which are accessed via NFS and some other file systems. See git commit 6369b556 for the infrastructure in kdelibs, and commit b8c9aa55 for the patch that makes Dolphin use it.
  • Bug 316335: Make sure that children of expanded directories are removed from the  model if the parent is collapsed, and prevent that they reappear when the filter is removed. See git commit acec0e65, review request 109343.

Taking stuff apart

System & Utilities

Last Saturday, I took apart an old and broken laptop of mine: a Sony Vaio VGN-TZ31XN. That was once a top of the line executive laptop. I bought it in 2009 when the model had just been discontinued and superseded by a new one, so it wasn't too expensive.

The laptop had an 11" 1366x768 screen, a 1.2 ghz Core2duo, 2GB of ram and 120 GB hard drive. The reason I paid 1000 Euro for such lowly specs is that it had a weight of 1.25 kg, doing about 6 hours on a battery charge.

Impressive piece of tech

I've been wanting a new laptop since I started to bump into performance issues during 2011. 2 GB of ram is not sufficient in a time of HTML5 - there are web pages which eat several hundreds mbs of ram. And unfortunately the Linux desktop isn't getting lighter either (it's part of why I decided to help Will and Klaas with Klyde for hackweek). And I've been doing some light video more...
