Adriaan de Groot (adridg): The FreeType License

System & Utilities

The FreeType library is released under a dual license: you can choose either the FTL (FreeType License) or the GPL, version 2. That means that a software stack that uses FreeType has to be license-compatible with one or the other (or both). In cases where the rest of the software stack also allows choices, this can be slightly complex. You end up with a combinatorial explosion of licenses — in theory, if not in practice.

But why is a choice necessary, anyway?

At issue is the “attribution clause”. This is common in the BSD family of licenses: the clauses usually say that you must attribute or credit the authors in the documentation accompanying the (binary distribution of the) software. Let’s look at the attribution clause of the FTL itself:

Redistribution in binary form must provide a disclaimer that states that the software is based in part of the work of the FreeType Team, in the distribution documentation. We also encourage you to put an URL to the FreeType web page in your documentation, ...read more...

Stefan Majewsky (majewsky): Kolf: Call for help

System & Utilities

The other day, Aaron wrote about the quest of "identifying projects in need". This reminded me that I have one project that it is in need: Kolf 2. About one year ago, I’ve put on myself the burden to rewrite KDE SC’s only sports game. I had big aims, 3D support (besides the classical 2D mode) being the most prominent one.

Over the course of the last year, quite some progress has been made on physics simulation, the implementation of 3D terrain, and a course editor interface. Some nice structures are in place, but big parts are still missing. Also, a weak spot in the design have been identified: It is not possible to allow 2D and 3D views at once. Period. For example, a 2D view does not represent any notion of height, which is important to determine the reachability of certain points of a map.

With real-life workload on one side and Palapeli’s feature request list on the other side, not much time is left for Kolf. This is a call for help: ...read more...

Guillaume DE BURE (gdebure): A Skrooge website

System & Utilities

We have been busy over the past few weeks in launching the skrooge website. It doesn't contain much at the moment, but we're working on it. On a side note, I moved all my past blog entries from blogspot on the site also, I hope planetkde won't get it wrong.

The site is drupal powered. I played a bit with joomla back in our sourceforge days, but I'm much more comfortable with drupal now that I understand it more. I guess choosing your CMS is like choosing your linux distro, to each his own (shrug). Anyway, if someone is interested in helping us putting it together, please step in ! This is a good opportunity of getting involved in an Open Source project.

Arjen Hiemstra (ahiemstra): What's happening with Gluon?

System & Utilities

So, it's been a while since the last update on Gluon. Quite a bit has been happening actually, of which more in this blog post. :)

Gluon Renaming

First off, we had a little IRC meeting in December in which we discussed some things related to the graphics library and other issues. One of the things we discussed was that considering the core Gluon libs will only depend on Qt, it does not make a whole lot of sense to name them "KSomething". Instead, it was decided that we will rename the libraries. KAL will become Gluon Audio, KCL will become Gluon Input and KGL will become Gluon Graphics. The current "GluonCommon" that exists mostly as a CMake file and one header will be renamed to Gluon Core and several things like the GDL handling and others will be moved to this. All the Gluon libraries will depend on Gluon Core, which will mostly provide convenience classes for all sorts of things. The previously unnamed src/ directory and contents will become Gluon Engine, which will be where stuff like ...read more...

Brad Hards (bradh): Goodbye Okular

System & Utilities

The Okular team has never been all that big. Recently we lost Pino as the maintainer. His reasons are his reasons, but I can't say I blame him. I can personally no longer tolerate the level of abuse that we're seeing on bug reports. The latest example is Wishlist item 157284

I'm unsubscribed from the okular-devel mailing list. I'm not going to be in #okular. I'll still look at XPS bugs if I notice them.

It is difficult to leave. I really do care about Okular - I gave quite a lot of my time to improve it. It is a really nice application. However every time I looked at some bug comment insisting on a change (in something like the GUI that is subjective in the absence of actual usability study), I get disheartened. Even when I'm supposed to be working on something else, it gets to me. I've got better things to work on, where I'm not seeing that level of criticism of volunteer efforts.

I'd like to thank everyone involved ...read more...

Jos Poortvliet: Release party in NL

System & Utilities Hey,

Some might have noticed there are release parties being planned for the KDE SC 4.4 release ;-)

Anyone up to organizing one in NL (check here)? I just don't feel like cleaning my house (will take me well into march to get it clean enough to welcome visitors)...

Meanwhile, we're gearing up to the 4.4 release with the first Release Candidate. If you feel like some writing about what's new - please send me an email or the kde-promo mailinglist. Really, we can use some help on the feature guide...

Jussi Schultinkm (jussi01): KDE 4.4 Release Parties

System & Utilities

 Well Peoples, its that time again, yet another good excuse to party! (YAGEP).  So, KDE SC 4.4 is releasing andm YOU, yes YOU can organise a party.

So heres how it works!

1. Check the wiki to see if there is already a release party in your town/near you: http://community.kde.org/Promo/ReleaseParties/4.4  - If you want to join a party, just add your name to the list! (so its easier on the organisers)

2. If theres not, have a look at http://community.kde.org/Promo/ReleaseParties for some help on how to organise one!

3. When you’ve made your plans,  Add your party to the wiki! (make sure you are logged in so you can edit)

4. Get inviting people and promoting your party! Blog, tweet, tell others about !

Remember, everyone is welcome to create parties, not just core KDE people. If you are excited about KDE’s New release, then you too can create or join a party!

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quest: git

System & Utilities As we move from 2009 to 2010, KDE's source code is in a sort of odd limbo itself. The majority of our code is in a subversion revision control installation hosted on svn.kde.org, but more and more of the code we produce is ending up on gitorious.org. The idea is to eventually have everything moved over, with the exception of translations (and documentation?) which will stay in svn for the sake of the translation teams workflow.

Why Git?



For many people in KDE, svn no longer meets their needs for teamwork-based development. The ability to easily merge branches, to work radically off-line and a fairly impressive list covering various benefits of git are often cited as reasons to make the move. Personally I don't think it's a panacea as git comes with it's own set of issues, though it is getting better and better every time I upgrade to a new version of it. I think it is quite a bit better than svn is for how we tend to work, though. That hardly matters, though, because our ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quest: deployability

System & Utilities Deployability. Is that even a word? :) I love it for how ambiguous it is, even though it's pretty obvious what it probably refers to. So what exactly was I thinking about when I put "Deployability" on my list?

It is a potentially big topic. We could end up discussing user/group profile management and how we still don't have a KDE4 GUI configuration front end for Kiosk, like that KDE3 KioskTool, to make setting up such systems easier. (Side note: good news on the Plasma Desktop front! In KDE SC 4.4 will support all the Kiosk keys that KDesktop/Kicker used to respect.) While we certainly need something in this category (and had at least one good start to it), that isn't what this blog entry is about.

It's about something much more fundamental: getting KDE software to people in the first place. Let's assume for a moment that we'd like people to be using KDE software, and that we'd also like to see more application developers writing software that uses, either in part or in ...read more...

Sabine Emmy Eller: Data for Parley and Similar Applications

System & Utilities

We, that is Vox Humanitatis, are at a stage that we have access to more and more data and it would be a shame if we did not give it out in a format people can simply use. Nevertheless there are some issues to it:

The amount of data for “learning lessons” is simply too huge. That is: files with 10.000 terms as vocabulary are simply too much and nobody will ever really learn them. Instead, depending from school type, university, study course or simply private learning special subsets of this data are necessary.

We asked translators and language enthusiasts to help by integrating and all did a really great job. Thanks to many generous people the basics terminology grew a lot. We already attributed classes (or maybe you might understand the term “category” better) to the various terms and so you have some kind of “lessons” in particular from our own data, but: it is still too much for most who are learning a language.

Then, during the ...read more...

Anne-Marie Mahfouf (annma): KDE-Edu: what's up in our team?

System & Utilities

At the beginning of 2010, it's the perfect time for reflecting on the past year and make wishes for the new one so here I go with my analysis of KDE-Edu.

Recent past

In 2008 and 2009, things were slow: I was busy with my family and the 6 months release scheme did not allow me enough time to really get into a realease. Several KDE-Edu developers also slowed down at the same time, mainly also due to family life (several became new fathers, congratulations!) Since December 2007 I had no time to organize another meeting. The project still lived quite well on the development side: new developers joined, we'll release two new applications in 4.4 (Cantor and Rocs) and while some programs are unmaintained they are nevertheless working properly enough to be released.
It is difficult to form a community because the KDE-Edu developers have a very vague common goal (Free Education Software build with KDE) unlike Amarok or KDevelop teams which only have one product as a goal or unlike Plasma team (where people appropriate freely other people code ...read more...

Patrick Spendrin (SaroEngels):

System & Utilities Well, since Aaron raised one or two issues, I'll take the time to blog again.

Our primary goal for KDE on Windows is easy installability and a complete and stable KDE on the Windows platform. So the question is - where do we start?

Aaron mentions that our installer seems to be way more complicated than installing Linux and that a simple fire and forget installer is far better for a broader audience.

This is probably true and was already part of some discussions. The task of rewriting the packaging format is also not the biggest part. More tricky is the problem of updating the core package, which would then contain quite a lot of smaller libraries which are now handled by the installer. And the second point is: If you want to install more than one package, you might find a package manager far more convenient (on a side note: it is near to impossible to use the .exe installers as packages from inside the kdewin-installer). This part of course gets less important if you ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quests for kde in 2010?

System & Utilities In my last blog entry about 2009 achievements and events I said that I had a "looking forward" entry to come this week. This is the start of that entry, or rather, entries. As I was working on it, it became apparent that it was a big big for one entry. Yes, even too long for me. ;) I also realized that having a list of topics in one blog entry was probably going to lead to chaos in the comments section. The solution seemed evident: address each topic up in it's own small blog entry and publish them in sequence over the course of several days. So that is what I am going to do.

What is my goal / intention in doing this? I hope to get many of us thinking about or at least aware of really important issues that require consensus and shared action. I hope to start a conversation on each of these topics that can take on a life of its own, with each blog entry being the spark that ...read more...

Trever Fischer (workman161): Video4Linux2 in xine-lib

System & Utilities

This morning around 2:30 AM I finally got a semi-working implementation of video4linux2 in xine-lib. Clone my hg xine-lib 1.1 repository from http://tdfischer.fedorapeople.org/xine-lib/ and have a look at src/input/input_v4l2.c. Thats one big roadblock out of the way towards getting webcam support in Phonon.

Having never hacked on xine before, the code isn’t nearly as nice as I want it to be. In fact, you’ll notice around line 215 that I magically multiply the image size by two and it suddenly works. Yay. There’s also a few other interesting bits, such as returning “v4l:/” as the media URI I’m currently playing, despite being told to play /dev/video0. This appears to be the only way to get the v4l demuxer to start demuxing my video stream. After that though, it Just Works.

So right now my plans are to get it included into xine-lib proper, which might mean porting it to the 1.2 unstable branch. In addition, it needs to be able to support more than just one format (including the MPEG streams that some capture devices use), radio ...read more...

Stephen Kelly (steveire): Testing proxy models gets easier. Again.

System & Utilities

I just pushed a few commits to the tests section of kdelibs which make it easier to test proxy models.

I have written before about testing of proxy models, but things have progressed greatly since then. Aside from creating a unit test suite, I also created a small application for testing proxy models, imaginatively called proxymodeltestapp.

The idea was to have a visual indication of whether the proxy models used in Akonadi were working properly. Those proxies are all implemented generically so that they can be used with any model, in this case DynamicTreeModel which I wrote about before. Having full control over the contents of the DynamicTreeModel by using various commands meant that I could tackle various bugs in the proxies as they came up by recreating models and scenarios in the proxymodeltestapp, such as “starting with a complex tree, we move these items from here to there. Then the application crashes.”. Having a way to reproduce those scenarios in a Short, Self Contained, Correct, Example, away from ...read more...

Mathias Kraus (hias): Hello planetkde

System & Utilities

Hi everyone,

I’m Mathias, a new contributor to KDE Games. During the last year I spent some time to code on Granatier, a new game which will be released with KDE SC 4.4 and I would like to give a short introduction.

At first, what is Granatier? It is a Clanbomber clone which in turn is a Bomberman clone. If you played Clanbomber, you may have noticed that it is no longer maintained and at least Kubuntu doesn’t ship it since Dapper Drake. A few friends and me used to play it quite often, so I took a look at the source code, but it was hard to understand, at least for me. As I already wanted to improve my C++ and Qt knowledge for some time, this was the right opportunity to do both. I didn’t start from scratch, but used the Kapman codebase, so kudos to the Kapman delvelopers, without them, it would have took much longer to get to the current state. I also have to thank Arturo Silva, who did the marvelous artwork.

Friedrich Kossebau (frinring): Estimating filename encodings with Okteta

System & Utilities

Today I had to make a backup of a user’s complete home directory on a remote system. Options might have been scp or similar, but I opted for the KDE way: Opening a Konqueror with sftp://user@host/ and a Konqueror with a local directory. Set “Show hidden files” to true, selected all directories and files in the home directory (don’t ask me why I didn’t just select the home directory itself, perhaps I wanted to see what I was copying), then drag’n'dropped all into the local directory.

Fine so far: the sftp kio-slave started to collect all dirs and files (more than expected, I had missed some copies of big Java libraries, bah), did so for a while, until it complained about some file names with unknown chars in it (

Boudewijn Rempt (boud): Krita Hackathon

System & Utilities

So today I booked two bed&breakfasts to handle the overflow of Krita hackers for the coming Krita sprint last weekend of February. We'll be seven, maybe eight developers and Peter Sikking. A weekend like this is usually more discussion, getting together and building a shared vision than hacking, but Cyrille, Sven and Lukas will stay on following the actual sprint for a whole week of what I suspect will be very intensive hacking.

Of course, an occasion like this should be marked by having its own t-shirt. The last dedicated Krita sprint was in 2005, and back then we had t-shirts designed by Nuno:

I gave the last surviving shirt to Cyrille during the Oslo KOffice sprint.

So... Is there anyone who wants to set the vestimentary tone for the 2010 sprint?

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): KDE Licensing Policy

System & Utilities

I have been invoked by John Layt to explain some bits of the KDE licensing policy. It’s related to my recent writing on copyright assignment in the sense that it discusses reasons for picking particular licenses and how licenses interact. The back story is the KDE Licensing Policy, which lays down which licenses are acceptable in the various parts of the KDE platform technologies and applications. Roughly, the libraries need to be liberally licensed (which means they can be taken proprietary or shipped with otherwise closed devices — a common choice of GUI libraries nowadays). More concretely: (LGPL 2.1+) or (LGPL 2.1 or LGPL 3 or later approved) or BSD or MIT or X11. The idea is that you can either go for any version of LGPL from 2.1 onwards, or only selected versions of the LGPL which have been approved by the membership of KDE e.V. (if you don’t want to give a blanket permission to the FSF to update the license terms) or something very liberal.

You must offer the choice, though: ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): New Year’s Recipes (2)

System & Utilities

Straightforward simple carrot cake. Still the subject of a classic joke in the Netherlands (”vies hé?”).

Non-straightforward is my latest proposal for fixing the issue of decades once and for all. Obviously the year 1 AD started on December 25th, 4 AD, as calculated by the best scholars. So 10 years later is December 25th, 14 AD. But — and this is important — on September 2nd, 1752, 11 days were skipped, so the end of the 175th decade isn’t December 25th, 1754 AD but 11 days later, on January 5th. It’s a good thing the reform of the Roman calendar under Julius Caesar was done before 1 AD, or we would have to shift by two months to compensate for the newly created January and February, as well. So remember, we can celebrate the last day of the decade in just 1460 days.

One and a half cup grated carrot. Three quarters of a cup of sugar (I use cane sugar). One tbsp. “koek en speculaaskruiden” or an equivalent mixture of cloves and cinnamon. Pinch of salt. Mix thoroughly, ...read more...

Many enemies and few friends.

If there is one technology in the Linux world that ruffles feathers whenever it's mentioned, it's Mono, the open source .Net clone.

Marcus Hanwell (cryos): Avatar and 3D

System & Utilities

The Wednesday before Christmas several of my new coworkers from Kitware went to see the new Avatar movie in 3D. I haven't been to the movies much recently, generally just using Netflix to watch movies at home. I have to say it was well worth it, and I have been trying to talk Louise into going to see it with me again. We saw it at the local IMAX, and the images really popped out of the screen. It was a little off putting that they use linearly polarized light, so that the effect is lost when tilting your head. I would highly recommend that you make the trip out to see it in 3D, and hope to figure out babysitters and all that stuff so that Louise and I can go and see it before it leaves the big screen.

The story was quite engaging, but I did find it really quite lame that the mineral they were mining was called "unobtanium", or that is what is ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): On Copyright Assignment

System & Utilities

A little while back, Michael Meeks published a lengthy piece about copyright assignment (not nearly as lengthy as the articles he links to on untangling Wittgenstein’s net). Go on, read it (Michael’s stuff, not the net). It’s worth your time. When you get to the bottom, follow the link to Dave Neary’s take on assignment as well.

I’m going to take the time to respond to Michael and Dave with two different hats on: my FSFE hat (work-work, where I do legal and licensing stuff in the Freedom Task Force) and my KDE hat (volunteer work, where I have hacked on various bits and pieces for over a decade). This isn’t an entirely independent article on assignment, but looks at their comments on it. First off: there’s no right answer. Just like I say during my licensing talks at conferences: it (licensing or copyright assignment) is a choice that needs to be made, and that choice needs to be compatible with your goals, your morals, your business needs (if any), your sense of community ...read more...
