OpenChange at Exchange RPC Plugfest (24-27 Jan 2011)

System & Utilities

Late last month, I was fortunate to be invited to Microsoft for the Exchange RPC Plugfest as part of the OpenChange team.

I decided to arrive into Redmond a few days early to get over the worst of the jetlag, and to spend some pre-plugfest hacking time with Julien Kerihuel and Jelmer Vernooij. That produced some excellent planning work, and a bit of new code. I also caught up with Tom Devey (a Microsoft consultant, who is basically the customer representative for Exchange RPC protocols) and enjoyed a nice wood-fired pizza lunch, and some night skiing at Stevens Pass. My skiing was never really good, and lack of practice and some pretty unusual conditions didn't help. It was still a lot of fun though.

The Exchange RPC plugfest kicked off on Monday (24 January 2011), with breakfast and getting oriented in the lab environment. The labs we used were in the "Platform Adoption Center" (Building 20 on the Microsoft campus at Redmond), which is a nice facility for this kind of thing. Monday afternoon had presentations from Simon Xiao and ...read more...

How to Top-Post in KMail, a KDE Linux Email Client

System & Utilities

I've been using KMail as my default email client for a couple weeks. Before that I'd used the Gmail web interface almost exclusively for a few years, and before that I'd been a pretty big fan of Thunderbird, which I'd switched to when I switched to the GNOME Linux desktop from KDE, where I'd used... KMail.

Utils, Utils, Utils…

System & Utilities

The Muon Package Management Suite has been getting a lot of attention lately, but this doesn’t mean that cool things aren’t happening elsewhere in the QApt world. Since 1.0, QApt has shipped a utility called QApt Batch, a batch installer used mainly for integrating package installation into KDE applications in Kubuntu. QApt 1.2 will see the inclusion of several more utilities, that have perhaps a bit more… *ahem*… utility than QApt Batch. I will be introducing these new utilities over the next few blog posts as a little blogging miniseries. With that, I’ll start with the first post.

QApt GStreamer Helper

The QApt GStreamer Helper is an implementation of the GStreamer plugin installation framework that GStreamer applications (and more recently the GStreamer Phonon backend now support)

There’s not too much to show. Phonon sends us a request for a plugin, and we ask the user if we can install it.

The searching process uses LibQApt to find packages that provide GStreamer metadata, and uses  ...read more...

Krita 2.4 progress

System & Utilities

Since we released Krita 2.3 last month, the development of Krita 2.4 has been running at an incredible pace. So I thought it might be a good idea to show what we have been doing in the new version.

Since we released we got a huge amount feature wishes, so I took some time to implemented some of them. Most of these changes we in the user interface, as can be seen in the following screenshot.

If you have used Krita 2.3 and earlier versions you probably notice that the tool- and statusbar now take a lot less space. The funny thing behind this I never really noticed it before (I guess as KDE user I was very used to bigger margins and due to my big screen it never bothered me much), but then I saw some Krita on Gnome screenshots (like here) and there is was very obvious.

One very surprising thing about the Krita is that ...read more...

About Friendship

System & Utilities

The inspiration for this article stemmed from a recent discussion with a bunch of friends. The core of our topic was: "Does friendship differ from love?" Now, love can mean a lot of things. Initially, in this discussion, it meant the classical romantic love between life partners. Which is of course a special thing. However, my argument was (controversial as always): "True friendship is the same thing as romantic love, if you have the guts to leave out the romantic crap." Please let me explain, what true friendship means to me:

  • Being there for each other. Especially when the friend is in need of that (sickness, financial troubles).

  • No need for being dishonest. A real friendship implies that secret topics can be discussed. They will stay secret.

  • Surviving arguments. True friends will value each other's opinion, whether they agree with it, or disagree. The truth can be told, and it's expected to be told.


  • I do not have very many "true friends", but: Quality > Quantity. My girlfriend is in ...read more...

    Camp KDE 2011: Back to the Bay

    System & Utilities

    In January of 2008, KDE hosted its 4.0 release event in the Bay Area.  A little over 3 years later, KDE returns!

    Celeste has just posted an article on the Dot with all of the details: Camp KDE is going to be held April 4th and 5th in San Fransisco.  The Linux Foundation is hosting its Collaboration Summit on April 6th through the 8th.  In the same city.  At the same hotel.  What a coincidence.

    Camp KDE starts in two months: So get planning and get packing.  The Camp KDE website will refer you to this registration site.

    Interested in giving a presentation?  The CFP (Call for Papers) is open immediately: Head to the Camp KDE website for more details.  Proposals are due February 25 – what are you waiting for?  You’ve got a lot of typing to do.

    git 'er done

    System & Utilities

    I can't believe nobody has blogged this yet, but kdelibs and kdebase are now both in git! There's also been a bit of a reorganization undertaken. Led by our fearless git migration rule writers Ian and Nicolás, we have five repositories where once there were four:


    • kdelibs (ok, no surprises yet..)

    • kde-runtime, which used to be kdebase/runtime/

    • kde-baseapps, which lumps together the file managers and related utilities (like bookmarks editors, kdialog, etc)

    • konsole

    • kde-workspace, which used to be kdebase/workspace and now contains all things Plasma Workspaces; yes, that includes stuff like the mighty KWin and KSysGuard. Of course libplasma is still in kdelibs.



    Also of note is that the KTextEditor interface, while still in kdelibs, is primarily developed in (and sync'd with) the code in the Kate git repository.

    This is setting the stage for a nice opportunity for us to work on the further modularization of the KDE Platform for app devel while also giving the workspaces a clearer and more separate footing on their own.

    Konstruktor: back and alive!

    Screenshot 3

    I've been very busy doing my full time for last two years. Along with my job, I was slowly working on my project called KLDraw (and then Klotz) in my spare time.

    Many things have changed. I renamed it Konstruktor (yeah, I know that was an awkward decision), refined UI and rewrote the rendering code from the scratch. Now I believe this one is almost feature complete and comparable to major LDraw-based CADs out there (MLCad, LeoCAD, Bricksmith, ...)

    Konstruktor 0.9.0-beta1 is just released. The source code is here: http://konstruktor.influx.kr/konstruktor-0.9-beta1.tar.bz2 Still this is in beta stage, please report bugs as you find them.

    This project is now hosted at GitHub. Feel free to participate and fork if you want to. I have project homepage (http://konstruktor.influx.kr) but nothing's there so far. I still suck at designing website, please mail me if you want to help.

    Release Party KDE 4.6 at Porto Alegre – RS – Brazil

    We met day 26 of January, the day of the release in Pinguim Bar at Porto Alegre.

    You can see pictures on KDE-BR flickr:

    KDE at Pinguim :)

    It was pretty cool, I met personally who I knew only by email. We talked, exchanged some ideas, talked about KDE (and I realized that some people still compares KDE 3 to 4), about our Planet in Portuguese, Qt and random subjects.

    There were people from various places: Érico, from Bagé (the other side from Rio Grande do Sul), Pedro from Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Julia, from Salvador, Bahia, which is already producing artwork for KDE-BR. There was only one person from Porto Alegre, the rest is “migrant” or are thinking about “migrate” to POA:) And there are users and those who want to start collaborating with KDE and/or resume old projects, like Huberto :D

    Blizzard of 2011

    System & Utilities

    As I sit here writing this right now, we here in Chicago are hunkered down with the expectation of receiving more than 24 inches (60cm), of snow. Hoping I can get this posted before the power totally goes out here due to the wind. The wind is making it even worse. We have sustained winds in the 25 to 35 miles per hour (40 to 56 kph), with gusts around 50mph (80kph). It is nuts, but it is fun at the same time. Luckily for us, we don’t close down like other major cities in the US, well except for schools.

    EDIT: Forgot to add a link to pics I will be updating of our storm just in case you were interested. Head over to my Picasa Pictures and enjoy. Getting ready to head out and try to stream via U-Stream, because it is nuts right now.

    Well, I was looking at the state of documentation in both KDE and Kubuntu and realized it really needs a lot of help. Now ...read more...

    Finding the unloved, 2011, part I

    System & Utilities

    As some of you might already have read, it was time again to find those parts of KDE which projects would need some more love. We (the CWG team) requested input from responsible parties to let us know which those projects are. Now, after 2 weeks we are now sadly announcing those, but on the other hand we are eager to see any help coming in.

    So, without any particular order, those are the projects reported to us:


    KDE Games

    • The maintainers of several games are inactive, so bug reports pile up. On the code side, KSirk should be ported to Telepathy from its own Jabber implementation to reduce code complexity. Helping hands are also desired in updating the GGZ libraries, which enable networked multiplayer games.
    contact kde-games-devel@kde.org or majewsky at gmx.net

    KDE WWW

    • php, css, html coders needed to maintain kde website infrastructure
    kde-www@kde.org

    Kdebase/apps/konsole

    Thinkpad T410 and Kubuntu

    System & Utilities

    Thinkpad T410

    Laptop refresh time is here, thanks Canonical. Faced with the prospect of finding a computer to spend a grand on I took the bus trip to Fry's in Dallas. Fry's is a large computer supermarket, I don't recommend it for the cafeteria but they do have a large selection of laptops to browse. The staff are annoyingly keen to help you, until you start asking about the finer details of processor ranges and mention Ubuntu. All their laptops have glossy screens, a phenomenon I do not understand.

    So I went back to the hotel and ordered a ZaReason laptop. ZaReason are a small US company who make laptops with Kubuntu pre-installed. Unfortunately with only 24 hours to go before I left the country they couldn't put one together in time for me. I did get an e-mail from their CEO saying they were desperately trying to put one together in the 45 minutes before the parcel lorries left but it wasn't to be.

    Qt in education

    System & Utilities

    I came across a really nice blog entry by Hanne Linaae entitled Teach Qt!. That led me to the Qt course materials and I grabbed a few of the course material sets.

    When I settled in to look at the first one I was very pleased to see three things:


    • They are creative commons licensed, allowing for broad usage

    • There are PDFs and PowerPoint formats, yes ... but there is also an ODF version in there

    • KDE is mentioned a few times, including getting its own slide in the intro slide deck with a pointer to Techbase



    The course materials look really good and the approach seems solid. Nice work Qt people! :) The more educational materials and documentation we can have around the Qt and KDE ecosystem the better.

    Slicing up the Web

    System & Utilities

    The Webslice applet has been in Plasma (kdeplasma-addons, to be precise) since 4.4 already. It allows the user to display a part of a webpage on the desktop. This can be useful for monitoring only a specific part of a webpage, or just to display something nice.

    The Webslice applet has been written by Richard Moore and me as a functional prototype, but didn’t see much love since it was added to Plasma for 4.4 in 2009. Its basic mechanism is that you specify a “slice” within a website, which is a rectangular region. This region then gets shown in the applet, and resizes dynamically with it, zooming the “slice” in and out. The widget basically worked, but had two significant problems: Resizing was very sluggish and bound to a kept aspect ratio, and you needed to know CSS2 selector syntax to actually use it.

    Earlier tonight, I’ve committed a set of changes which address these problems, and backported them after review on the plasma-devel mailing list to the 4.6 branch, so these changes become part of Plasma 4.6.1, which ...read more...

    collaboration at openSUSE

    System & Utilities

    A few days ago I posted about Canonical's decision to start shipping Qt with Ubuntu but do it in a not-exactly-cooperative way. Aaron replied to my post that he had contacted Mark who simply forwarded him to the Kubuntu developers. Mark either didn't get the point Aaron tried to make or didn't like it - either way, too bad.

    Collaboration news!



    Luckily, at the cross-distro app installer meeting openSUSE organized, Ubuntu had two people over and it was even decided to use the Ubuntu Software center as reference for other distributions. Good to see Canonical seems open for collaboration - at least to some extend. After that meeting the Bretzn team worked for three days on an openSUSE appstore - count on an article about that soon! Hint: pretty awesome results in the pipeline and patches are already flowing in, implementing the ideas, plans and mockups from the meeting. I must say I'm really happy with those meetings and look forward to see what openSUSE will be doing over the next months ...read more...

    The latest Amarok Insider, just published at http://amarok.kde.org, features the writing of seven Google Code-In students, writing nine different articles, ranging from an interview with developer Bart Cerneels, to "How To install a new script in Amarok." Besides the mentors, students were able to get assistance and encouragement in their tasks and research from Amarok developers and users in the #amarok IRC channel on Freenode, which is what makes these articles of
    such high quality.

    Amarok Insider featured articles: What's New in Amarok, Google and Amarok, Roktober Success, Interview with a Developer: Bart Cerneels, Automated Playlist Generator: How to Use it, Queue Manager in Amarok, Installing and using a script in Amarok, Amarok on Windows, Transcode
    your media files, Amarok Live CD.

    Google Code-In was a huge success for Amarok, and it's great to celebrate the Amarok 2.4 release with this Insider almost completely written by our students!

    Choosing a project for Hackweek 6

    System & Utilities

    It's Hackweek again in SUSE land for the next five days. It's the sixth edition and there already is a nice list of projects in openFATE.


    I haven't decided, what I'll work on, yet. There are four projects I'm thinking about. I entered all of them in openFATE for now, will sleep for a night, and then take a decision tomorrow morning, when I'll start hacking. If you have input, preferences, what you would like to see happen, or if you would like to join me in one of these projects, please let me know.

    These are the projects I have in mind:

    Developer sprint support tool

    We have discussed this a couple of times in the KDE community, as there are happening a lot of sprints there, and it would be great to have a tool, which supports taking care of the administrative aspects, helps with ...read more...

    Request to Linux distributions

    System & Utilities

    Do not waste my hard disk!

    I recently acquired an 2 TB hard disk drive, which I immediately formatted with ext4. Given that mkfs.ext4 defaults to 5% reserved blocks for too, that amounts to 100 GB of lost* space.

    Wow. 100 GB. On a desktop machine. For root.

    While mkfs belongs to e2fsprogs, I think this requires action on the distributions side. Let me explain.

    If you are installing a server, 5% makes perfect sense: there are a lot of logfiles, updates, potential break-ins and other disasters-to-happen for which root-reserved space will be preciously required. 5% is a good choice here. If 5% is too much (or too little), it will not matter: any decent sysadmin knows mkfs.ext4 -m and tune2fs -m (if you don’t, Martin will teach you).

    On the other hand, if you are installing Ubuntu on your laptop, you probably don’t know shit about mkfs, tune2fs, 5%, etc. You only know by removing Windows and installing Linux you’ve magically lost 100GB of space. Vanished.

    So here is ...read more...

    Common user interface mistakes in KDE applications, part 3: Message Boxes

    System & Utilities

    Message boxes are part of the ordinary pain the user has to face daily while using his computer. One should strive to avoid them whenever possible: a good message box is a dead message box! Asa Raskin wrote a great article on the subject: “Never use a warning when you mean undo“.

    “OK-only” message boxes

    With “OK-only” I mean a message box which shows some text and an “OK” button to close it.

    There is almost no good reason to use “OK-only” message boxes. These message boxes can be turned into information panes at the top of the application window (KTitleWidget can be used for this, but maybe we need a more specialized widget) or turned into notifications.

    My latest most-hated “OK-only” message box is the one which pops a minute or two after login when Nepomuk is disabled:

    Ideally, such information should be displayed when the user disables Nepomuk, not each time he logs in (I understand this ...read more...

    ZNotes is a Simple Note Taking Application for Linux

    System & Utilities

    Today I'm trying out a note-taking application for Linux called zNotes. The program is written using the Qt toolkit, so it should fit in well with either KDE or GNOME, although its vertical tabs , and Oxygen-style icons place it a bit closer to blending in with KDE.
