Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quest: nepomuk

System & Utilities Nepomuk, the "social-semantic desktop" framework named with a cute half-dragon namesake. It's an amazing set of technologies, but there are two huge challenges for it in 2010. If we conquer those challenges together, we will be laughing.

Communicating Nepomuk's Benefits

Right now there are a lot of questions surrounding Nepomuk: What is it good for? Why does it take so much CPU / disk? Why do I need it if I don't plan on doing any socializing or semanticizing (?!) on my computer? This translates to a lack of enthusiasm, appreciation and even frustration amongst our users and even at times developers.

The thing is: all of those questions have good answers. Whether it's the performance improvements of Virtuoso, educating our users about how Nepomuk is being used by various "every day tasks" (such as indexing and relating email, contacts and other PIM data via Akonadi, all behind the scenes and with good perormance) or making it easier to figure out that it's quite easy to turn off the disk indexing parts if you want, these more...

Luca Beltrame (einar77): Learning by example

System & Utilities

With my brand-new SVN account, I just committed some code to kdeexamples, KDE’s example code module. In particular, I committed a simple example which shows how to use KConfigXT via PyKDE4, a simplified version of what I wrote about here.

As most of KDE is C++, and the Python API docs are translated directly from the C++ API docs, it is essential to have good examples to help newcomers learn faster. There are some PyKDE4 examples in the kdebindings module already, but I put mine in kdeexamples for a number of reasons:

  • Clear purpose: kdeexamples is meant exactly for this – example code;
  • Visibility: A central place to find KDE examples even for bindings is optimal, makes easier to find what one is looking for.

Visibility is also important as currently the examples are rather buried inside kdebindings, and as far as I know they aren’t included in the packages of some distributions (at least not openSUSE; YMMV).

I decided to take this route because more...

Patrick Aljord (patcito): New Shapado update: badges, reputation, themes, api and more!

System & Utilities

Hey everyone,

I’m pleased to announced a new BIG release of Shapado (the free/libre open source stackoverflow stackexchange on steroids). We’ve added tons of new features and hopefully didn’t add too much bugs.

The new features are:

  • reputation constrains: you will need a certain amount of reputation points in order do some actions such as voting up or down and more.
  • badges: people who participate a lot or are just getting started will get rewarded with these :)
  • new ui: shapado should look better now
  • theming: if you still don’t like how it looks, you can now make your group look however you want, the default install comes with 5 default them but you’re free to create your own ones. Themes are based on web apps .

shapado main's theme

  • customization:
    • custom ads: your group can have its own ads (adbard and adsense only for more...

Kevin Ottens (ervin): Helping with Maemo SDK deployment: Qt/Maemo VM

System & Utilities

There’s some movement on the KDE/Maemo front. Lately we’ve seen more public announcements coming mainly thanks to the office viewer. But there’s also work under the hood cooking up. Most notably communication channels to provide feedback for the Qt 4.6/Maemo variant are open, hopefully we’ll soon see a few patches flying in. And also Jos posted some (large) patches to streamline kdelibs which are on the table for discussion and hopefully going toward a KDE wide solution.

Today though, I just wanted to let everybody know that I’ve been working on a virtual machine to help KDE developers easily get a Maemo SDK. I added some documentation so now we have a Qt/Maemo SDK VM page on techbase (download URL and installation procedure are there).

It should be relatively easy for anyone to have it working: download, boot, login, run a script, done you can know use Qt 4.6 in a fully setup Maemo SDK. Hopefully that will lower the bar to contributing for quite some people.

That’s it for now, don’t hesitate to drop me a mail if you more...

Ingo Malchow (neverendingo): Get Involved

System & Utilities Once i have read comics, many comics. Especially those of some superheroes. What i can remember quite well is one comic about superman. It was about a problem with our parallel world. Suddenly there were 2 earths. And Superman's problem was now to put those 2 worlds together again. To keep it short, he was actually able to handle it. Why do i want to tell this?
What we actually have are 2 different worlds.

The first one is that of a user willing to contribute but not knowing how and where. Maybe it also involves being a bit shy, maybe just not finding the right information or the right place.

The second world is the developers world. They work hard on their product and have a hard time to do it all, always waiting for a new volunteer.

Now, how could these two worlds be approached? Afterall, we want our small family called KDE grow, right? ;)
That's where "Get Involved" comes into the game.

It is an open call to users more...

Alvaro Soliverez (Hei_Ku): KMyMoney-SVN package available for Arch

System & Utilities

I took over a package that had been disowned and modified it to make it build on Arch with libofx. Aqbanking is still pending because I haven't found a suitable Qt4 package, but I will modify it when I do.

You can find the package in AUR:

If you use kdemod, modify the PKGBUILD to depend on kdemod-kdelibs-debug instead of on kdelibs.

Dario Andres Rodriguez (Dario_Andres): BugWeek 0 (Plasma Desktop) – Results

System & Utilities

The first BugWeek session finished one week ago and I mostly finished processing its results. (What is a BugWeek?)

There were 12 participants registered (9 of them worked on the bug reports)

The overall results are:
141 bug reports checked (~14 of 20 batches)
42 bug reports which could be considered fixed/not-reproduceable (this is an estimation, some reports are not going to be closed)

Some statistics:
(note that the results could change as it is somewhat difficult to “label” some bug reports’ status)

I think these are nice results considering the season (new year’s eve week), and that this was the first (and unpolished) experience. From my PoV, the whole experience was great: people was interested and willing to help us, and the BugSquad stuff was willing to help the participants too.

I would like to thank to all the participants: jtamate, R

Mark Kretschmann (markey): The server that came from the Mist

System & Utilities Here's a little story I wanted to share with you. It's so bizarre, you might not believe it when you read it, but it really happened :-)

Some back story:

A few months ago Amarok had migrated to Git, and then Konversation had migrated too. We had to write a special "commit hook" script for making the commits show up on IRC, via the CIA bot. This script was running on our Amarok server (called "Kollide"), and all was fine. At some point then we migrated our server to new hardware, as the old contract had expired. That also went really well.

What happened later:

At some point the CIA bot started to print everything twice. Yes, every single commit, all duplicated. I guess you can imagine how annoying that was. So we tried to debug this for weeks, looked at all scripts, at Gitorious, and whatnot. Noone was able to spot the more...

Klaas Freitag (dragotin): Kraft Project Status

System & Utilities

I thought it might be nice after the holidays to tell about the status of the Kraft project, the KDE software for people operating a small business. Some nice things happened around it.
Kraft Logo

The best thing is that an additional developer works on Kraft: After my last status post Thomas Richard (account trichard) contacted me that he is interested, next days I had the first patch in my mailbox and from that point of time on he constantly contributed high quality changes into the Kraft repository.

His high energy, dedication and fresh ideas gave me a new motivation push after having worked on Kraft basically alone for more than four years. That’s great!

The last months we worked on porting Kraft to the KDE4 platform which is in a quite good shape in SVN already: Kraft compiles without warnings and without Q3 and K3 support classes and works stable again.

We couldn’t resist to make use of the new capabilities of KDE4 here and there and more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Terms of Service

System & Utilities

The terms of service of a website vary from the stupid to the sensible, from short to very lengthy. The Facebook terms, for instance, have been re-worked in an attempt to be plain English and are very wordy indeed — but not stupid. No, stupid is a website with terms saying “This file may not be downloaded from this site.” Imagining (if you have any technical knowledge at all) how someone can come up with that is likely to leave you with a sprained hindbrain. Not recommended.

Now, it’s sensible to read the terms of use of a website; but not necessarily mandatory. Often there’s a checkbox saying “yes, I have read the Terms and Conditions” (with a link to the T&C). You can still check that without actually having read the legalese. Perhaps a setup where you must click on three randomly chosen highlighted terms in the T&C text before you can continue would improve matters? In any case, you don’t necessarily have to read the T&C, so have you really accepted them? Ars Technica reports more...

Matt Rogers (mattr): Yahoo Webcam Fixes for Kopete

System & Utilities

So i just committed a rather nice patch from new contributor Michael Cole that fixes a few things in Yahoo with regard to webcams and avatars.

You can now accept webcams from Yahoo users and send your webcam to other users. Avatars that are now also downloaded and stored properly.

Michael mentions that the other user doesn't see an notification when you send your webcam to somebody (IOW, they have to request it still) and that avatars only download when they're changed while online.

Either way, it's nice to see some webcam love come our way. Thanks Michael!

Justin Kirby (neomantra): So much to do, oh how we need you

System & Utilities

The promo team is overloaded work once again!  (aren’t we all?) :)

However, should you be one of the lucky few who might be interested in finding something to keep you busy, as Jos mentioned in one of his previous blog posts we really need more help with writing the Feature Guide for the 4.4 Software Compilation (SC) release.  Yeah, I know…that link is mostly about release parties…now you see where the minds of us promo people really are I suppose.

Anyways, some of you might be wondering what exactly this Feature Guide is.  I guess it’s mostly obvious that it’s about features but what is the scope of the document, you might ask?  Well for those of you that are newer to the community like I am, I’ll explain what I’ve learned.

So when we do releases of the SC one of the things we (the whole community) do is have a plan for what features will be in the next release (  One of the more...

Boudewijn Rempt (boud): A new manual for Krita

System & Utilities

An application isn't complete without good documentation. Those fine folks at Linux Format docked a lot of points from Gimp when they reviewed their new release because the manual wasn't updated yet... Krita 1.6 had a pretty fine manual for a free software application, but given that Krita 2.2 is going to be so much better than 1.6, the manual should be ace, too. And almost nothing from the 1.6 manual is still usable, there have been so many changes.

We have to rewrite, and make it even better this time. There is no way I can do this on my and code, it's got to be a collaborative effort. And there should be video tutorials, as well, as part of the manual. So... Enter It's the perfect central place for efforts of this kind. I've started an outline for a new Krita manual, a manual with more than just a description of every menu option and dialog, but one that focusses on concepts, getting things done.

Also: the first Last Week more...

Alessandro Sivieri (Siv): Sembrowser for Ubuntu users

System & Utilities

Just a brief update: for those who follow the development of Sembrowser, I did not write a single line of code after the release of 0.1, and that’s because I have been a little busy during the Christmas holidays, for a university homework with today as the deadline. Also, the winter exam session will start in a couple of weeks, so don’t expect big surprises for a while.

In the meantime, if you use Ubuntu, finally the RC1 landed in the beta repository, so now Sembrowser can be packaged, and it is: the 0.1 can be found in my personal PPA (for Karmic, of course); I don’t know how often I will update it, I mean if I will create debs only when I will do an official release or more often. I’ll let you know when I will decide :)

P.S.: as a side note, I use(d) my PPA for personal experiments, so I suggest you to install Sembrowser only; any more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Upcoming Conferences

System & Utilities

LinuxTag in Berlin is one of the recurring and very fun events, both on the community and business sides of the Free Software equation. The call for papers is open until the 29th of January. The NLUUG spring conference on systems administration has a call that is open until tomorrow, but tends to be somewhat lenient in the submission deadline. I think it would be cool to have a talk on “Konsole as a sysadmin tool”; I don’t think general Free Software talks fit the bill all that well. There will probably be an FSFE stand at the conference, though, to talk about licensing and the importance of Free Software in sysadmin tasks, even if it’s not an all-that-obvious fit for the conference theme.

Though the call for papers closed a long time ago, you can still attend CampKDE starting on Friday. This is the North American get-together of KDE developers and users, in San Diego this time around.

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): Some Berlin Time

System & Utilities

Much of the time I work from home for the Freedom Task Force, which is the “legal department” of the Free Software Foundation Europe. It’s nice to work from home, although my colleagues know that that also means long lunches (picking kids up from school, feeding them, bringing them back) and occasional emergency stops. On the other hand it also means that I can go on til all hours of the night if needed. (I won’t claim that’s always efficient — if I wanted to be efficient I might follow Isabel Drost’s lifehacking approach).

But sitting at home is not always the best thing to do: it’s lonely (at least as far as those colleagues are concerned) and it can be difficult to bounce ideas off one another. No matter how much VoIP and Jabber and whatnot we throw at it, nothing really beats a planning session over lunch (except maybe one over dinner + drinks). In addition, it’s fun to sit together and just get work done: that’s the old “hey, look, I more...

Chani Armitage (Chani): school again

System & Utilities

My, how time flies – I’m already a week into the new school semester. I had a really nice holiday (an *actual* one, where I actually *realaxed* for once ;) and the pace is picking up again now…

At the beginning of the holidays I was planning to work on git documentation; that didn’t really work out. I realised it felt like homework, and KDE isn’t supposed to be a chore, so I needed a break. Over the holidays I spent most of my time reading books and seeing friends. :) I did return to kde eventually, of course; I worked on a little feature I’d been dying to implement, then unbroke the poor neglected plasma-overlay stuff. I’ve still got a handful of little things to do before 4.4 is released – hopefully I can do them at CampKDE, because school’s getting busy already. :)

I’ve got four courses this semester, which is one more than usual… and there’s going to be a *lot* of writing. in fact, my first essay is due in 14 hours (how to more...

Alvaro Soliverez (Hei_Ku): Release schedule for KMyMoney

System & Utilities

After releasing 3.95, I started a discussion about the schedule for future releases. There were two issues, I think, which affected the possible schedules. First, the feasibility to make quick releases and build upon that to have a stable release in a sensible timeframe. Second, whether we should move to a tighter integration with KDE SC or not.

My aim is to have a stable release within 6-8 months. For that, we had to change our usual 5-6 month release cycle, and have quick releases which would allow us to build upon the feedback from battlefield.

Lubos Lunak (llunak): Today's magic fix: Fast Konsole redraws with nvidia

System & Utilities

There is something magical about hacking on things without having much clue about them. It almost feels like a treasure hunt, with mysterious traps all along the way and an elusive treasure maybe at the end. Today's treasure is KDE4's Konsole (preferably not) being awfully slow with some fonts. Specifically, as irony would dictate, the rule could be almost said that the better suited font for Konsole the slower the text rendering is, whereas if the font breaks the text layout completely or hurts to look at, the speed is just fine.

Profiling showed only that the CPU time was all spent in the X server in the nvidia driver, which is really not that helpful with something that is closed-source. It only meant that Qt was feeding to X something that the driver didn't like much. Eventually, I tracked it down to one XRenderCompositeText32() call in Qt (which, in a retrospect, wasn't really a very obscure hint - if there's something slow with drawing, suspecting XRender is always a worthwhile guess).

That showed where the treasure was, but more...

Frederik Gladhorn (fregl): New Stuff again

System & Utilities

Hi there,
now that the KDE Software Compilation 4.4 is branched, it’s time to think about the next iteration. Next to bug fixing that is.

I’ll keep fixing things I broke with the hot new stuff framework re-write that makes it’s first public appearance in 4.4.
Since this was the first release including KNewStuff3, not that many apps have been ported yet - I just didn’t want breakage all over the place, but only in a few chosen locations to be able to fix bugs ;)
If you’re curious about the new stuff (no pun intended whatsoever), check these: Plasma Image Wallpaper, Comic Plasma Applet, Kate’s Snippets NG (deep inside Kate’s config, you need to enable the new snippets plugin) and Parley. Parley features an upload dialog in addition to the download version. Here’s fun to play with and dreams coming true :D (we spoke about this on the first KDE meeting I was at - back in 2007 in Paris).

Simon Hausmann (tronical): This week in QtWebKit trunk

System & Utilities

I’d like to give you a brief summary of the commits that were landed in the Qt parts of WebKit in the first week this year:

  • Lots of improvements on the DRT testing tool: Enter key fixes (Jakub), Drag and Drop support (Yael) and Zoom support (Kim, Diego, Afonso). All of these changes improve the layout test coverage. :)
  • Jakub added support for sliders to RenderThemeQt.
  • Andreas fixed a crash with input methods on startup.
  • Kim fixed the semantics of touch events to match the iPhone and Android behaviour better.
  • Luiz and Kenneth landed more code that’ll make it possible in the future to handle list popups in the application.
  • Norbert landed a workaround for an RVCT bug that makes the trunk build again on Symbian.
  • Yael continued work on the network state notifier implementation (using Qt Bearer Management).
