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:

mer-kickstarter -e . ...read more...

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!

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

[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.

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

Activity Blobs

System & Utilities

Albert’s item about Okular contributors (a great idea to thank those who contributed their time over the past year — and I’ll say thank you to all the Okular developers who make my document-reading-life a nicer place) and also Seif writing about Mozilla contributions spurred me to quickly hack together a tool to give an idea of the activity in one of KDE’s git repositories. It’s much like the venerable green-blobs graph that Paul Adams makes. It’s just an indicator — I’ve written about this time and time again, the graphs from one repository cannot be compared with other repositories, and the best you can quickly conclude based on these pictures is whether development activity in a repository is carrying on “as usual” or has changed.

So here’s a graph of Parley, a small program that is probably considered feature complete.
This is three different graphs mashed into one. There’s no dates on the graph, but it covers roughly the past year of development.

Over the Christmas season we bought an electronic drum kit so that my daughter can practice at home; she’s 9, but I hope that some day we can play “Ace of Spades” together. But the most exciting item in the large box was the empty box! I have not opened it up to ascertain if, indeed, the box is empty. Who knows, it might even contain KDE 4.9.3 packages for FreeBSD.

ObKDE: I found David Narváez post about the term “real-life” intriguing. Way back, Sebas and I used the terms “work-work” and “kde-work” to distinguish between “the time spent developing software for which (time) we are paid” and “the time spent developing software which is fun”. That seems a little less pejorative (and sometimes the two overlapped). But there’s another angle, not one pitting “KDE time” against “useful time” like David suggests. It may be that people writing about “real life” use that as a contrast to “that portion of life spent in virtual environments”, i.e. that it’s about computer-vs-non-computer related ...read more...

Red Hat Bachelor & Diploma Theses about KDE projects

System & Utilities

Every year Red Hat Czech offers a list of topics for bachelor and diploma theses to students from local universities. The topics are usually suggested and posted by Red Hat employees who then work with the students as technical consultants and mentors.

We see this as a good opportunity for students to learn about open source software, communities and collaboration and for us to find potential future employees Smilie: :-) (so there’s a great motivation too). We want students not to see their diploma or bachelor thesis as some boring obligation, but rather a “fun” way to learn new things, meet people and gain experience. And last but not least they are potential contributors to the projects they are involved in.

This year I managed to get several students I’m mentoring to pick a topic related to KDE.  Although all projects are somehow related to KDE Telepathy, it’s a good start Smilie: ;-)

Today I want to introduce work of first two students, Stanislav Láznička and Artur Dębski.

KDAB contributions to Qt 5.0 (part 4)

System & Utilities

Continuing the series on KDAB contributions to Qt 5.0 (part 1, part 2, part 3), this time we cover C++11, and various optimizations

C++11 support

There have been many people and companies working on C++11 support in Qt 5. KDAB was involved in several Qt 5 features which relate to C++11. An overview of the features in Qt 5 which relate to C++11 is available from a presentation last Autumn.

One of the porting issues in a Qt 4 to 5 transition is that the QSKIP macro now takes only one argument where previously it took two. This is a source incompatibility for users to deal with. As macros can not be overloaded the way that functions can, a different solution is needed. That’s where  variadic macros become useful. If C++11 is enabled when compiling a file which uses QSKIP, the definition of that macro looks like this:

#define QSKIP(statement, ...) QSKIP_INTERNAL(statement)

The QSKIP_INTERNAL macro is the implementation of the regular ...read more...

Components Growing

System & Utilities

Looking past the irony that QML will be available for all platforms but WP8 in the short-term, and Nokias previous involvement in the development of QML, it is nice to see the platforms being created.

The last in the row is Ubuntu Phone, others are Jolla’s Sailfish, RIM’s BB10 Cascades, KDE’s Plasma and Nokia’s Components for Harmattan and Symbian. Qt seem to unlock the future UIs for devices.

What is striking is the interaction patterns being established. Nokia Swipe, Sailfish as well as Ubuntu Phone seems to rely heavily on swiping from the sides of the screen. This is, in my experience, the key to a truly one-handed device.

Using Android, you are constantly forced to hold the device in awkward angles or use two hands to reach the home button, be it physical or on-screen. Swiping with the thumb is always possible when using one hand (as long as you have an opposable thumbs), while the two-handed user can swipe using the index finger without feeling hindered by the ...read more...

2012 Recap for me in KDE.

System & Utilities

2012 is not the best year for me in the KDE team, I almost didin’t coded, heal life issues keep me busy in a way that I couldn’t avoid. I did a few things however:

( Much thanks to Andreas (CoLa) and Wagner Reck ( wiglot ) for helping me on improve my initial mess into a true opensource project. If you are a teacher or computer scientist student and never heard of Rocs for Data Structures / Graph Manipulation, do a favor for yoursellf and go take a look.

My first Mozilla contributions

System & Utilities

As of beginning of December I started contributing to the Mozilla community… I must say amazing people and amazing environment.

I was invited by Josh Matthews and David W. Boswell to a Mozillians meeting. The first task I took upon myself was getting new contributors mentioned with every release. With the help of the others I went around pinging people and a couple of days later we reached the consensus that we will be linking to a blog post on http://blog.mozilla.org/community/category/spotlight/ from the release note with every release.

We will be using a set of premature scripts I am working on to detect new contributors to a release as well as the contribution rate (code and bugs which is inspired by my GNOME fellow Andre Klapper). Those can be found https://github.com/seiflotfy/mozcctools (nothing special they just spit out JSON stats, will automate them this weekend).

And last but not least. After an interesting call with the super dad himself, Mike Hoye, I took a challenge upon myself to hack a tool that does the following:

Zeitgeist 1.0 almost there (call for hackers)

System & Utilities

So after 4 years of development Zeitgeist is reaching 1.0. The Zeitgeist team has reached a big goal/milestone :D

What’s new?

  1. New libzeitgeist2: instead of libzeitgeist which was developed and hosted on Launchpad now reuse and expose our own internal Vala components. When comparing libzeitgeist2 to libzeitgeist we can see over 65% less code (thanks to Vala) with 90% compatibilty with libzeitgeist. (libqzeitgeist not affected)
  2. GObject Introspection support
  3. Faster performance
    • Testing with 100k events DB here are some plots, those are peromances of synapse and standard time based queries where the yellow bars are 0.9.5 release and green bars represent “master”. Shorter bars are better.
    • synapse_unlimited timerange_always timerange_interval
  4. Smaller DB size: With a very small modification to the main table (primary keys), SQlite created some automatic indices that cover what we need so now instead of 34 indices we only need 25.

Search your playlist – Plasma-Mediacenter

System & Utilities

Till last week or 2 I was surfing through calligra code base. Shantanu asked me share my love for Plasma-mediacenter and hence it bubbled up with this post. I wanted this post as a Christmas gift to PMC(Plasma-mediacenter) users. But then due to my laziness and some foo factors it delayed.

PMC has support for playlist. Lets see how I added the search option for playlist. I wrote a model to filter the search in the playlist, named FilterPlaylistModel. FilterPlaylistModel inherits the QSortFilterProxyModel. And the key method of FilterPlaylistModel is filterAcceptRow. filterAcceptRow method will help us to filter out the rows which didn’t matched with string in the search box. Playlist.qml uses playlistModel which is already in use. I wanted to add my FilterPlaylistModel to Playlist.qml. This was accomplished by adding a Q_PROPERTY in FilterPlaylistModel. Created a sourcePlaylistModel of type QObject. Added the read, write and notify options. I registered the FilterPlaylistModel in mainwindow.cpp. Now here is the tricky part, which took me some time to understand. Updated the model of Playlist.qml to:

We are very happy to announce the first testing release of Plasma Active for Nexus 7. Plasma Active, in a nutshell, is a Linux distribution (based on Mer as a core) that is specifically optimized for tablet computers.

Tuomas Kulve and me had been working on the Mer “hardware-adaptation” for Nexus 7 that enables to run Mer-based distributions like Plasma Active on the Nexus 7.

Impressed by Calligra compatibility with Microsoft Office

System & Utilities

Blog Tags: 

I'm using Microsoft Office quite a lot at work, and I must confess it is a very efficient. Not only because I'm used to it, but also because it allows creating nice looking content extremely fast, and is feature wise more complete than its competitors. That being said, Office remains a closed product, without proper support for Open Document Formats.

As soon as I'm leaving the office I switch to Archlinux, and use LibreOffice or Calligra : even if less complete or efficient than Office, they are Open Source and support Open Document Formats. They are totally suitable for my personal usage, where I do not need to create striking Presentations or complex Pivot Tables and graphics.

Being a bit bored between the Christmas and New Year's Eve frenzies, I loaded a (not too) complex presentation I made in Powerpoint into LibreOffice ...read more...

My personal KDEPIM upgrade (again): laptop

System & Utilities

One year after my last blog post on this topic I encountered some minor difficulties with combining KDEPIM-4.4 (i.e. kmail1) and the KDE 4.10 betas. These difficulties are fixed now, and the combination seems to work fine again. Anyway, I became curious about the level of stability of Akonadi-based kmail2 once more. After all, I've been running it continuously over the year on my office desktop with a constant-on fast internet connection, and that works quite well. So, I gave it a fresh try on my laptop too. I deleted my Akonadi configuration and cache, switched to Akonadi mysql backend, updated kmail and the rest of KDEPIM without migrating to 4.9.4, and re-added my IMAP account from scratch (with "Enable offline mode"). The overall use case description is "laptop with large amount of cached files from IMAP account, fluctuating internet connectivity". Now, here are my impressions...

  • Reaction time is occasionally sluggish, but overall OK.
  • The progress indicator behaves a bit odd, it checks the mail folders in seemingly random order and only knows 0% and 100% completion. ...read more...

Testing KScreen packages available for openSUSE

System & Utilities

Yesterday Alex Fiestas showed on his blog a video of a recent development version of the KScreen library, created to handle easily multiple monitor setups in KDE, almost in an “automagic” way. As this is a project where configurations and setups are highly heterogeneous, a lot of testing is required to ensure things work reliably.

Of course, you cannot ask a developer to have all sorts of screen combinations, but remember one of the strengths of FOSS: “many eyes make bugs shallow”. And that’s why the KDE team prepared testing packages for KScreen for openSUSE users.

Before you jump to the repository, bear in mind that these packages are for testing and bug reporting purposes. They can potentially cause unwanted effects, connect your displays to some random alien homeland, make your house blow up, and so on.

If you are still daring, you can find them in the KDE:Unstable:Playground repository. Install both the libkscreen and kscreen packages, and you’ll see a new entry in System Settings when you go to the monitor configuration ...read more...

The Nexus 7: My views

System & Utilities

Before I start , I must make it clear that it is not an in depth review of Nexus 7, you would find a lot of those on the internet. I am just narrating my own experience from an Indian’s point of view , which a lot of people should find useful.

First of all, I am a final year undergraduate and was thinking of buying a tablet for the last 6-8 months or so. Earlier I wanted to buy the Micromax Funbook but then I thought that if I am buying a tablet, I should go for a good one, at least a decent one. I am not saying that the Micromax Funbook series is bad, they offer a great value for money but unless you are in dire need of a tablet and have a 7-8 K budget limit, I wouldn’t advise you to buy it.

I started checking out the Nexus 7 reviews and found them pretty great. Sure it had some cons, but all of those were fine with me. It didn’t have a back camera ...read more...
