Unit testing KColorButton

System & Utilities

Around two weeks ago, a bug about was reported in which Okular crashed when changing the color of highlighted text. After a bit of debugging i found that the bug was actually in kdelibs in the KColorButton class.

This is a class I had never looked internally so it was a bit hard to decide where to start looking for a fix. Then I decided to look at the git log and realized the last commit introduced by a fix for color selection not working correctly on double click.

I took my chances and saw that reverting that patch actually removed the crash, so now I knew where to look :-)

After a few minutes looking at the code i came up with a 3-line patch that fixed the crash and still made double click work correctly. I'm so awesome o/

But that wasn't enough, I needed to *prove* I had fixed it, so i decided to create some tests, that was a bit harder since it involved "clicking" in buttons and ...read more...

Nepomuk WebMiner 0.5

System & Utilities

Since my last post a lot has happened to the Nepomuk-WebMiner (former MetaDataExtractor).

The WebMiner went through the KDE Review process and got cleaned up a bit during this process. The new location of it is extragear/base/nepomuk-webminer.

On the code side, I have fixed several bugs and integrated the automatic fetching better into the current Nepomuk system.

The new WebMiner-Service respects the suspend/resume and event monitoring (no internet, low diskspace, on battery mode) in the same was the FileIndexer does it.

When the automatic fetching is started via the command-line or dolphin command, the service is used for the actual fetching. This allows to show the current fetching progress in the nepomukcontroller (in the systray).

Starting with KDE 4.11 the Systemsettings for Nepomuk and the Nepomuk WebMiner are combined and won't show up as two different entries anymore.

SFLPhone KDE now have a macro subsystem

System & Utilities

In a world where some people still communicate with each other using some sort of sounds, they will be happy to learn that SFLPhone KDE now have an awesome new feature: Macros. Does it free you from your daily conversations where you always end up saying that something being asked today can’t be ready by… yesterday? Not really, but that would be nice. What it does allow you to do is create a set of key sequences that can be called using keyboard shortcuts, toolbars and other accessibility methods. This may solve a few corner cases previously not very well handled. Here is a little summary of a few common use cases:

  • Corporate SIP client where you have to press a key or a code to call the outside world
  • Listening to voicemails without having to enter the password manually
  • Clearing all voicemails
  • Bypass custumer services robot-menus with a pre-programmed sequences (or a ton of “0” to try to talk to a human if they still have some real customer support )
  • Call your most common contacts
  • Enable or ...read more...

LOCATION CHANGED: KDE 4.10 Release Party in Karlsruhe, Fr 8th February 2013

System & Utilities
Important: The location of the release pary in Karlsruhe I announced has changed! I'm really sorry, I hope this message reaches everybody in time!
This is the first time I'm trying to organize a release party -- and of course everything went wrong ;)

I wanted to wait a while before reserving a table at the restaurant to have somewhat accurate information about how many people are coming. That was a mistake, of course -- there's a football game on friday, and "Der Vogelbräu" is full already, no tables are available for reservation. Thus, we will now meet at

Badisch Brauhaus, http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=49.01205&lon=8.39375&zoom=18

instead. Time is the same, still Friday the 8th at 20:00. This time, I already have a table reserved for us (name is "Brauch") -- so everything should be alright now :)

KDE SC 4.10 packages for openSUSE

System & Utilities

As of today KDE SC 4.10 final packages are available for openSUSE 12.2 and Factory users. The new KR410 repo got built and you can replace your KR49 repos with it. KDE SC 4.10 will be part of openSUSE 12.3 and all minor updates for that KDE release will be shipped via the official update channel. Of course KDF does also contain KDE SC 4.10 final.

Currently there are no major bugs known. As already mentioned before, kio_sysinfo got replaced by kinfocenter because kio_sysinfo for openSUSE is unmaintained.

It is recommended to run nepomukcleaner to get rid of all legacy data. Beware though that it might take a long time. If you have nothing valuable in your nepomuk database, it is probably quicker to just remove its data from ~/.kde4/share/apps/nepomuk and start from scratch.

Another thing to note: if nepomuk crashes while indexing you might encounter an almost two years old Qt bug which according to the report, Qt devs are reluctant to fix. The problem of this bug is that after the crash ...read more...

FOSDEM: Open Science and Open Chemistry

System & Utilities

I will be talking about the Open Chemistry Project at FOSDEM this year in the FOSS for scientists devroom at 12:30pm on Saturday. I will discuss the development of a suite of tools for computational chemists and related disciplines, which includes the development of three desktop applications addressing 3D molecular structure editing, input preparation, output analysis, cheminformatics and integration with high-performance computing resources.

Open Chemistry

On Sunday Bill Hoffman will be speaking in the main track about Open Science, Open Software, and Reproducible Code at 3pm on Sunday. Bill and Alexander Neundorf will also be talking about Modern CMake in the cross desktop devroom on Saturday.

FOSDEM is one of the first conferences I attended (possibly the first, I can't remember if I went to a science conference before this). It will be great to return after so many years, and hopefully meet old colleagues and a few new ones. Please find me, Bill or Alex if you would like to discuss ...read more...

hanging out

System & Utilities

Yesterday I mused on Google+:

I used to do a "seigo on kde" live video cast back in the day ("straight from his bedroom, heeeeeeere's aaron!" ;) with viewer interaction, and they were a lot of fun and pretty well attended.

Years have passed, and I'm considering starting up again using Google+ Hangout, though with a slightly broader scope to encompass the bigger world of things that make up the Free software user experience landscape. It'll retain a KDE perspective, but not be limited exclusively to "things KDE makes".
The response was quite good .. and so I've decided to go ahead with it. I'll be hosting the first Hangout tonight (!) at 18:00 UTC. Why the short notice? This will be something of a dry run to get the feel for "on air" Hangouts, both in terms of the production bits and the audience management. If all goes well tonight with the technical details, I"ll make this a weekly thing ...read more...

Announcement: KDE 4.10 Release Party in Karlsruhe, Fr 8th February 2013

System & Utilities

The KDE 4.10 release is near, and since Lydia Pintscher moved to Berlin :( there have not been any more release parties! This state is unacceptable and needs to be changed. Thus:

There will be a KDE 4.10 release party in Karlsruhe, Germany, on Friday, the 8th February 2013. Start of the event is 20:00 at "Der Vogelbräu". Please add yourself to the wiki page if you already know you'll come!
Those events have proven to be a very nice opportunity to meet other KDE enthusiasts and developers from nearby in the past (also there's beer!) -- so if you live near Karlsruhe and you like KDE, there's no reason not to drop by!

Please observe the wiki page for eventual updates.

kjs finally under 1000 fails!

System & Utilities

Hello again planet,

I finally got time to konquer the kjs world once more. I was kinda busy in the past month and I still am. Many month have past and kjs was still over 1000(1004) fails in the ECMAScript Testsuite. But finally I broke the 1000 fails border, with implementing Function.prototype.bind, there are now under 1000 fails, even better also under 900! „Only“ 895 fails now.

ecma-under-1000-min

But if you look more closely at those 895 fails… ~700 are from strict testcases, which is like no gain for the user, ~100 are some not deletable properties of the standard builtin Objects, minor gain in some special situations for the user, and ~50 are because of some special call usage with null and undefined, maybe minor gain. So overall kjs is not in a bad shape…. function wise…

But sadly… I couldn’t commit any patches, they are still waiting for review, so don’t be surprised if your konq still shows 4147 fails.

Nepomuk Cleaner

System & Utilities

Nepomuk has a unique problem of maintaining an RDF store. Unlike traditional SQL based stores, RDF offers a very loose schema, which is a HUGE advantage. Unfortunately all of the current RDF stores do not support any form of schema enforcement. It's up to the client code to make sure that the data being pushed is valid.

This has resulted in a number of problems such as strings being stored where an integer should go.

With the KDE Workspace 4.7 release, we started employing our own form of schema enforcement in the Nepomuk Storage Service, but the old incorrect data still remains. Also, as Nepomuk has evolved as a project, we have found better ways to store data. Since the schemas are so loose, we could easily store both the old and the new data without any problems on the database level. This obviously results in more complex client code which has to handle both legacy and new data.

For this release, we decided to clean up the code to a certain extent and stop supporting some of ...read more...

LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 coming soon

System & Utilities

Once a year all or most of the applications around graphics from the free software world come together and work on new ideas and features for there software. The event where they come together is called LibreGraphicsMeeting. Oyranos participated always the last years in that meeting and got a lot of feedback and ideas from it. This year the LibreGraphicsMeeting will take place in Madrid/Spain and there is still time to submit interesting presentations around free software and graphics. As always the LibreGraphicsMeeting tries to collect some money for travel costs of the participating developers.

But there is more, last year we tried to get Gustav Gonzalez to the LGM and it didnt happen. This year Sirko started an campaign very early, as Gustav needs an visa for Spain he has to show flight tickets and accomodation for get it until 15th of February.

Skrooge 1.5.1 released

System & Utilities

Blog Tags: 

The Skrooge team is pleased to announce the release 1.5.1 of its popular personal finances management application. The attentive reader will notice that there is no annoucement for version 1.5.0... This is because I was too slow to make it before Stephane published a new version Tongue Out.

This new version's highlights contains :

  • Automatic import through weboob. In spite of the [funny | questionnable | silly] (pick your choice) name and general tone, weboob is a quite interesting technology allowing to fully automate the process of downloading data from your bank, by parsing its html page. Backends are available for a few banks, but writing additional backends is actually quite easy with some python knowledge, and their community will welcome your contributions.
  • Overall performance improvement
  • Nicer line graphs

First User Developed KDE-LightDM Theme Created

System & Utilities

As KDE-LightDM prepares for heading into extragear, I'm busy tying up all the loose ends and final bits of polish on the product. One of the final items left is working on making it easy for modders and hackers to build their own themes and make these really easy to install for all users.

In recent weeks, I've had two people contact me with regards to making their own themes which is really encouraging.

Stoica-Marcu Andrei (FlowRiser) has developed a login manager theme that looks like the login theme that mimics the video game "League Of Legends". As an old person I don't really know what that is, but I do know it looks very nice. The still screenshot shot does not do it justice, there's things animating and moving and there's sound and all sorts.

Whilst this obviously isn't to everyone's taste and won't ever be shipped with KDE-LightDM, it's really encouraging to see someone take the flexibility the QML-powered theme engine provides and make something really unique with it ...read more...

Update: Nexus 7 & PlasmaActive vs. 3G

System & Utilities

Just a small update to (partly) answer my own question: apparently, the 3G modem in the Nexus 7 can be accessed via the cdc_acm Linux kernel driver. Great thanks to whoever activated that option in our hardware-adaptation kernel (I suspect Tuomas did this. :) ).

To cut a long story short. After inserting my SIM card into the Nexus 7 (Note that I have disabled the PIN for this particular card.) a new “Mobile Broadband” device showed up in the network manager applet. According to the info there it is the device /dev/ttyACM0. Note that I have two ttyACMx devices here on the Nexus 7 3G version, 0 and 1. According to the modem-manager debug output the 3G modem is identified as “XMM6260″, which corresponds to the other sources that say this chip is built into the Nexus 7.

So far so good, however, there is the problem that the XMM6260 seems to use a (slightly?) different command set. Apparently ofono already has an according driver implementation for this chip but not modem-manager. I uploaded the ...read more...

PublicTransport 0.11 now in beta

System & Utilities

Since alpha 2 there have been many crash and bug fixes and some visual polishing. There were some random crashes with script providers and some rare crashes like trying to expand a departure item, that currently gets removed (animated).

Stop IDs are now used by the applet instead of stop names, if available. The data engine distinguishes between names and IDs, scripts know whether or not an ID was given and can use different URLs then. For providers with slow web servers the timeouts were fixed. A global timeout of 60 seconds is now used for script execution and asynchronous network requests (synchronous requests are counted as script execution time). Previously there was a global ~10 seconds timeout, making the default timeout for network requests of 30 seconds senseless.

Getting additional data for multiple timetable items at once now works much faster, because all requests get started together, not one after the other.

Besides fixing bugs I did some visual polishing of the applet. All route items now use the same angle for the stop names. The ...read more...

Active, images and devices

System & Utilities

As I wrote before, we are trying to make PA4 as stable as possible, and as well as it was noted by some people, this involves also having images for a wide variety of devices.

What I'm doing, is kindof even another step: making the image creation as easy as possible, so that is possible for people to contribute easily in the creatoin process of those images, (especially images for previously unsupported devices).

In Mer, that is the base of Plasma Active the OS images are created from an instruction file called kickstart. you can find a source repository that creates kickstart files for plasma active here:

git clone git://anongit.kde.org/plasma-active-kickstart.git

Then, what you have to do is installing a Mer SDK, following the instructions here. This is very easy, is more or less uncompressing a tarball and running a shell script inside it, and should work on any distribution.

Then, from inside the SDK chroot environment, go where you downloaded the git repo (your home is accessible from there) and do:

Post Google Code-in - an exhilarating journey ends

System & Utilities

How long had I been waiting for this to commence - every month, every week, every day passed so painfully slowly - it seemed like eternity. I sometimes felt like a little kid imagining weird things - imagining being in some limbo land where the clock just wouldn’t tick any further.

And finally it happened on the 26th of November, 2012. The Google Code-in ‘rocket’ had launched from the lands of the ‘Google empire’ to many thousand homes where young developers were ready to explore the world of Open Source in the next 50 days of their life. I am one of those students. I’m not exaggerating - seriously. I’m just giving voice to the feelings of hundreds of teenagers who participated in Google Code-in 2012.

After contributing to KDE in GCI ‘11, I was determined that this year I would be doing the same. Thankfully I got this opportunity and I grabbed it with both hands!  

I was able to do 71 tasks for KDE and acquired a lot of knowledge while doing each one of them. And by knowledge I don’t mean ...read more...

Using Conky on KDE – My setup

System & Utilities

I had grown tired of the look of the system meter plasmoids in my desktop. I was looking for a more minimalistic yet complete system information.

Browsing around, I came across several desktop screenshots with Conky and KDE, and I liked them. Previously, I had the idea that it was suited only for Gnome, but these screenshots changed my mind. So I got to the task of finding a suitable configuration to replace my current plasmoids and some blink in the process.

First, I wanted a big clock. I had come across several examples with a big clock on the desktop, and I liked that. This is what I came up with.

conky2Yes, I know there’s a clock on the panel. This one was just for the looks. Here is the conkyrc file for it. conky_clock

Then, on to the real interesting setup, with system information, and weather. The system meters one weren’t hard, save for the temperature and fan rpm. I had to install lm-sensors ...read more...

[Help KWin] Create a KConfigXT file for KWin’s configuration

System & Utilities

Just the other day a user in IRC complained about a default in KWin. I thought that the default he expected, is the one which is set in KWin sources. So I opened the respective source file and saw my assumption confirmed. But still the user claimed that there is a different default and I believed him. Further investigation showed that the source code of the configuration module had a different default set. It’s probably like that for years but it shows a problem: the config values are written and read at different places and the hard coded default values might diverge.

This reminded me of the great project we had last year to migrate the configuration of the KWin effects to KConfigXT and of the project to transform the configuration modules in KWin to have ui files. The combination of both calls for a new project: let’s migrate KWin core to KConfigXT. Now this isn’t a project which we will be able to do in one go. So I will split it into ...read more...

QML component API's to come together?

System & Utilities

Just another day at the office...

The #active channel on irc.freenode.net is a place where people from a wide variety of projects that use various common bits of technology hang out. In Plasma Active we do a lot of work with Qt, QML and Mer, for instance; so we have people there from the Mer project as well as various QML focused projects.


Yesterday was therefore "just another day at the office" for us as a conversation between a Jolla (Sailfish) developer and a Canonical (Ubuntu Phone) developer about QML component API started up in the Plasma Active irc channel. Not only was everyone "Ok" with this, but consensus was that it was pretty awesome that we have a space for people to come together like this. People even said that to each other rather than let it remain silently unsaid. Contrast that with the attitude we sometimes see in development communities that discourage such "off-topic" communication between "competitors".




Well, one thing led to another and Zoltán posted an email to the Qt ...read more...

Let's see how the community reacs

System & Utilities

Hi all, this is my first 2013 post. My last post was 5 months ago because I did finish my studies (I'll graduate on March) and I had to do some work so I had no time to blog about Arch or the KDE projects in which I'd like to join (stay tuned!).

Here we come to the reason of this post: I got a mail yesterday from Laszlo Papp:

Laszlo: Hi Andrea,

Qt5 was out a while ago. Do you have any estimation for producing Qt5
packages for Arch? Do you need any help with those?

His request is fully reasonable and expected. Laszlo, you are talking with a maintainer of a bleeding edge distro: I want the latest software before it's released. Knowing that a qt5 package is already available on AUR, I replied quicly:

Andrea: There's no real hurry about that.
KDE will not use qt5 until 2014 (ok, maybe some month before) so there's no
hurry to put qt5 in [extra] IMHO.

The I got another mail from Laszlo:

Laszlo: Well, Qt5 is not just for KDE. ...read more...

More is worse: About Detail in Icons

System & Utilities

A statistical analysis shows that icons with less detail score better in terms of usability.

It seems to be an easy truth: Too much detail in icons confuses the users. So we wondered whether we could find any evidence for this truth in the data of our large scale test of the LibreOffice Icons.

First we did an expert rating and sorted the icons in two groups, depending on the level of detail in the icon.

Group 1 – Low Detail Icons
