So 4.4 is out, and I’ve done my first plasma screencast! :)
It’s just a little guide to the ways you can navigate activities in 4.4 without using the ZUI.

hrm. apparently embedded (non-youtube) video is a paid feature on wordpress…
but notmart has kindly uploaded it here.
there’s a link to the original ogg there, too. :)

Sam Duff (Socceroos): Kubuntu Karmic, KDE 4.4 and Nepomuk

System & Utilities Wow, long time no see. Haven't blogged in a while.

Firstly, let me just say that I'm so proud of everyone involved with KDE, SC 4.4 is a brilliant release!

Now, down to some nitty-gritty.

I'm using the great karmic-backports PPA to get my fresh copy of KDE 4.4 as I'm sure others are too. One problem I came across was that Nepomuk, Akonadi and Virtuoso didn't seem to be playing nicely and as a result I wasn't able to use these great technologies to their fullest. Basically, I was getting the 'Nepomuk not running' error popping up. This was because Virtuoso was reporting a pre-6.0 DB and refused to deal with it (old virtuoso 5x DB from previous upgrades through karmic-backports PPA). Unfortunately, virtuosoconverter didn't work and reported that it couldn't see a legit Virtuoso installation.

Here's what I did to fix it - NOTE THAT THIS MEANS YOUR INDEX WILL NEED TO BE REBUILT FROM SCRATCH:

#> akonadictl stop
#> qdbus org.kde.NepomukServer /nepomukserver quit
#> kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental
#> rm ~/.kde/share/apps/nepomuk/repository/main/data/virtuosobackend/*
#> nepomukservicestub nepomukstorage

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): Plasmate 0.1-alpha1

System & Utilities


I'm pleased to announce the release of the first alpha of Plasmate, a Plasma add-on creation tool.

Plasmate uses a number of the great KDE components such as the Kate text editor and various Plasma goodies to present a lightweight "mini-IDE" specifically for creating Plasmoids, DataEngines, Runners and even assembling Plasma Desktop Themes. It includes built-in git support, which is why you won't find a "save project" button anywhere but instead a "New SavePoint" button and a timeline. A documentation browser is also included that pulls documentation from Techbase and api.kde.org.

The intended workflow is this: you open Plasmate, pick what kind of thing you want to create or pick something you had already started and you are brought to a project window with everything set up. So far you've clicked perhaps at most twice and entered a name for a new project. You add code and view it in the embedded previewer as you progress, reloading the preview whenever it's of interest to you and adjusting ...read more...

Marius Bugge Monsen (Qt Development Frameworks): A Lighthouse with Windows

System & Utilities

Have you ever wondered how a window system actually works ? I have. When I was preparing my Widgets In-Depth talk for Qt Developer Days last year, I decided I should implement a simple little window system as bonus material.
This blog post will be a rough description of the window system I built using Qt, and a port of Qt to the new system.

Windows And Systems

As you probably know, the window system is the process that manages the windows on your screen.
A window, also known as a window surface, can be described as an area of memory that will be drawn to the screen. Window surfaces are typically arranged in a scene-graph to keep track of them. Finally, window systems typically run as a server process. When other processes that want to show something on screen, they have to talk to it through some form of inter-process communication.

The toy window system up and running.

Window Surface

We need something that represents the memory area used to paint the window contents. ...read more...

Zack Rusin (zrusin): 3D APIs

System & Utilities
Do you know where babies come from? It's kinda disturbing, isn't it? I blame it on the global warming. Stay with me here and I'll lead you through this. 1) Storks deliver babies (fact), 2) I, not being very careful about how I word things cause global warming (also a fact), 3) global warming kills storks (my theory) 4) evolution takes over and replaces storks with the undignified system that we have right now (conclusion).

Speaking about not being very careful about how I word things, how about me announcing those DirectX state trackers coming to GNU/Linux in my last blog, eh? By the way, now that's a good transition. The announcement was very exciting, albeit a little confusing, in particular to myself. Likely because it's really not what I meant. Mea culpa!

What I was talking about is adding features to the Gallium interfaces that will allow us to support those API's, not about actually releasing any of those API's as state trackers for Gallium. Gallium abstracts communication with the hardware and the support for OpenGL 3.2 + few ...read more...

Andreas Schneider (gladiac): Documenting the Source

System & Utilities

As you maybe know I have a new job since last December and I’m working on
Samba4 now. Samba4 is a monster so I’ve asked for some simple tasks to get
started. The task was to migrate some code to a new Samba library called
tsocket. The problem was I didn’t know what to do and how. Some functions
of the API were documented but not all. So I had to guess from the names
what the function is doing and read the code to understand it. Then I’ve
started to work with the interface and I had to look again the the code to
find out possible return values. In the end I spent a lot of time jumping
through the source code to find out the return values for the functions.

If the API would be completely documented I could get my work done a lot of
faster so I simply started to document it cause I had to understand it anyway.
I’ve decided to write the documentation ...read more...

Alex Fiestas (afiestas): KBluetooth 0.4.1

System & Utilities

In 0.4 release I asked to the distributions to update they packages, some of them did and some of then not, but the best of all is that I got a lot of feedback from the packagers, and here comes the payment for that feedback :)

With the last release I added a crash when receiving files, I gare say it was not my fault, the KBluetooth code is a mess and I can’t fix it without rewrite it from scratch (thing that I’ll explain hopefully in 2 days).

Small roadmap for 0.4 version:

  • Fix file transfer jobs (speed calculation and notifications)
  • Check (and re-check again) input

I’ll try to get the above points covered in a couple of days too.

Marco Martin (notmart): Drag, drop, search and launch

System & Utilities

KDE SC 4.4 is just out of the door (by the way, what an achievement, woha :D) and as our tradition we are already cramming features on trunk, that will be KDE SC 4.5.

In plasma land you will probably see more things in the tone of polishment and refinement of stuff already there rather than completely new stuff. But since the fourth Tokamak is approaching, expect something really really tasty coming out of it :D

But now there's a little appetizer: in 4.4 in the Search and Launch interface of the netbook shell is possible to add favourites and remove them by clicking on the little "-" icon

While that's good and will still be available, now is possible to add favourites where you want with drag and drop from the results view and move them by just dragging around.

The drag operation will start with a pretty low sensibility, making possible to still scrolling the view by dragging.

For instance since the results view scrolls vertically, if you drag vertically the view will just move, but if you ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): KDE Software Compilation 4.4.0 and OpenSolaris

System & Utilities

Although KDE SC 4.4.0 isn’t officially released yet (or there’s no announcement on the dot yet), I’ve bumped the specfiles in the KDE4-OpenSolaris repository to 4.4.0 and kicked off a rebuild. That means that we should have new packages at about the same time that the major GNU/Linux distributions have them. The release candidate was pretty stable on OpenSolaris as long as you didn’t (re)build any parts of it while logged in, but we’ll probably be hearing enough bug reports in the next few months for OSOL. You can report problems to KDE’s bugzilla with the OS set to Solaris, or use the OpenSolaris bug tracker and choose one of the KDE components there.

Of course, the whole future of OSOL is a little .. fuzzy. The Oracle / Sun takeover has caused a fair amount of shake-up in many of Sun’s projects, but OSOL has not, as far as I know, been either committed-to or deprecated. We’ll see.

In the wake (er, .. the bow shock wave, since I’m getting ahead of myself) ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): krunner responsiveness

System & Utilities The RunnerManager interface in libplasma which powers KRunner (among other interfaces) was designed to allow plugins a-plenty so that one search term could be matched in "real time" by several different components, each one looking for answers in different ways or places. This isn't a particularly unique design by any means, and the concept can be seen in many search interfaces out there.

A "run command" app faces a challenge with this sort of design: in usage, one expects the interface to appear "instantly" when called up and remain responsive during use. This isn't the web where pages can take significant fractions of a second without anyone caring or where we can stack dozens/hundreds/thousands of servers behind your queries to offer mindcrushing amounts of compute power to chew through whatever gets thrown at it. No, we have to be fast with limited resources while looking in all kinds of places. Basically, KRunner has be as responsive as the KDE 3 minicli while doing orders of magnitude more processing. Interesting problem.

To address the problem we made the query ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Bits of Privacy

System & Utilities

The organization “Bits of Freedom is a Dutch NGO Privacy watchdog. It has been re-vivified in the past years. It hands out semi-regular Big Brother Awards (say, isn’t the estate of George Orwell going to wake up at some point?) for the worst offenses against privacy in the Netherlands. Worth reading if your Dutch comprehension is ok. BoF has garnered some mainstream media attention as well, which offers hope that privacy isn’t completely a lost cause in this country. [Current schemes of nationwide chipcard travel and road-pricing deny that hope] There’s also a “Winston Prize” for someone fighting for privacy, which went to the Euro-MP Sophie in’t Veld. It took me a minute to figure out the “Winston” name, but since I’d read 1984 (it says so right there in my book list) the light dawned eventually.

Anyway, cheers to BoF, and keep watching over your own privacy.

Zack Rusin (zrusin): New features

System & Utilities
Lately we've been working a lot on Gallium but we haven't been publicly talking about it enough. I, personally, spent a considerable amount of time last week coming up with my strategy for the inevitable monster invasion. In general I always thought that if, sorry, "when" the monsters attack I'd be one of the very first ones to go on account of my "there's a weird noise coming from that pitch black spot over there, I better check it out" tendency. Obviously that's not ideal, especially if the need to repopulate the world arises; I just really feel like I should be present for that. In conclusion I'll quickly go over some things we've been doing with Gallium. Admittedly that wasn't one of my best transitions.

There are three new major APIs that we want to support in Gallium. OpenCL 1.0, DirectX 10.x and DirectX 11. DirectX 10.x was somewhat prioritized of late because it's a good stepping stone for a lot of the features that we wanted.

Two of my favorites were the geometry shaders and new blending functionality. ...read more...

Lukas Tvrdy (lukast): Week 2: Optimized Autobrush. Faster painting.

System & Utilities

The second week of our action plan for optimizing Krita was devoted to optimizing painting in Krita. Although there are many great paintops in Krita, digital painters tend to use most of the time the simple default brush engine which we call Pixel Brush. Painters can use GIMP brushes here, the text brush, but the most used brush tip is called Autobrush. You can setup the brush attributes like shape (circle, rectangle) and you can change the ratio to get an ellipse. Then you can change softness by vertical and horizontal fading. If you play with spikes and ratio, you get stars and other funny shapes. The brush has many dynamic attributes thanks Cyrille Berger’s work on concept called sensors. E.g. tablet can control the size by pressure, by tilt or anything you want (e.g. interesting is drawing angle) and it can be tuned by curve.

The algorithm, which computes the brush mask, stamped on the canvas regular as you stroke, is computed by the KisCircleMask::valueAt(). It is a computationally expensive function according valgrind ...read more...

Christoph Feck (kdepepo): Skulpture 0.2.4 released

System & Utilities

Just in time with the KDE SC 4.4 release, I was able to get out another release of Skulpture, my favorite widget style. The list of fixes is quite long again, partly because Qt 4.6 required some adaptions. The most annoying bug, the Tab key handling in Konversation, has finally been fixed. Two other bugs could cause crashes, so you are advised to update.

Source code and packages for all major distributions are available for download from the kde-look.org site. Note that these packages are not official; you should switch to distribution packages once they are available.

Michael Pyne (mpyne): Retro tunes with Phonon

System & Utilities

So, in The Beginning, when I was just a young padawan on the Internet, I had been let into a glorious secret: Emulation (not of IBM System/360 machines, but of more important things like the Super NES). Some branching from there led me to zophar.net, a popular emulation site, and their message boards, and also left me with a fascination with emulation.

The attributes of some of the older systems like the NES and Super NES made it fairly easy to capture their music-producing software, since those systems used separate co-processors to handle music effects. NES music would be stored in the NSF format, and SNES music was handled with the SPC format (named after the audio chip used, the Sony SPC700). There were (and still are) specialized plugins on many systems to play these formats (they emulated only the music chip, not the rest of the system).

I’ve been involved on the periphery of some of these things for the past couple of years. (For instance I had written a KFileMetaInfo plugin for KDE 3, ...read more...

Michael Pyne (mpyne): Well, George…

System & Utilities

You don’t have to use KDE 4. (And I can’t believe I’m actually having to make that part clear) Really people should use whatever makes them most comfortable, productive, fits with their needs better, etc. Just use what you want.

With that said, saying that you do not like desktop effects is not a good reason to avoid KDE 4. I happen to like desktop effects but I’m not using them, even though I’m in a KDE 4 desktop (due to a stupid problem somewhere in the driver toolchain). In fact I know for a fact, given that I recently tested it, that KDE 4 works just fine even in a Composite-less X11. So I forget what propaganda technique it is (straw man argument?) but in short that reason has absolutely nothing to do with KDE 4.

Really your whole rant could have been more concisely expressed without a single reason (as after all, you should be able to use whatever desktop environment you want) and you wouldn’t have people nitpicking your exact reasons that way. ;)

Niko Sams (nsams): KDevelop Php Update

System & Utilities I finished today the (for me) most missing feature in the KDevelop Php language plugin. It fixes parsing problems that occur when a project is initially parsed and the code makes heavy use of classes together with an autoloader. That means no include() statements for parent classes or static function calls. (Typical when using eg. Zend Framewok)

Previously code completion was broken until you manually forced a reparse, now this reparsing is automatically done once a identifier is not found - the file is added to the parse queue with very low priority - and the base class will be parsed meanwhile - and found correctly in the second pass.

Credits for this should mainly go to Hamish - who implemented that more or less the same way in Java language support.

As KDevelop is currently frozen for Beta8 I couldn't commit yet, until then I created a temporary git repository.

System & Utilities

With 2010 we've started to employ identica (then connected to Twitter and Facebook) as an channel for our live changelog at the {power}user level. Here's the dump for the past ~30 days (oh I should have used an XSLT).

  • We're replacing serialized QFont attrs with ODF equivalents in Kexi Reports file format; e.g. fo:font-family; it's extension of OpenRPT
  • Finally we're still embedding SQLite as many options are not set in distros, e.g. SECURE DELETE should be the default http://bit.ly/amZfJ3
  • Kexi switched to using sqlite bundled with the operating system instead of using a fork. The newest stable version is always recommended.
  • Sidebars behave now as expected: when collapsed, vertical buttons appear like in Kate. It's now natural to put widgets palette as a sidebar.
  • An extra ko dev has taken an interest in the report backend used in kexi (koreport), working to making it usable in kplato, a win allround!

George Wright (gw280): Why I won't use KDE 4

System & Utilities

Warning: rant follows.

So today at the ‘release party’ in Toronto (I use this term in the loosest possible sense), certain KDE developers decided to have a go at me for my refusal to use KDE 4 in favour of KDE 3. Admittedly one of them was particularly drunk after only a couple of pints, so I won’t take his input too seriously, but it did raise some concerns with the mentality I’m now (more often) seeing within the KDE community that I never used to see.

For me, KDE always stood for being free to do whatever you want. Surely that’s the philosophy of free software as a whole? If I want to use my machine to herd cats in my garden whilst terrorising them with a giant torch? Sure [0]. If I want to make my desktop look like other, well down, proprietary desktop environments - why not? You get my point.

However, today my objections to KDE 4 were met with an unbelievable barrier of closed-mindedness. For example; I use bitmap fonts with my terminal. Why? Because ...read more...
