Lucas Murray (lmurray): Window tabbing merged

System & Utilities

It took a lot longer than expected but the KWin window tabbing branch has finally been merged with trunk. This now means that it is possible to manually merge multiple windows together by middle-click dragging the titlebar of one window over another.

Since the branch was not trivial a large "thank you" has to go out to the Google Summer of Code student Jorge Mata for his initial hard work on making KWin support tabbing. Not only that but another "thank you" has to go out to Hugo Pereira Da Costa from the Oxygen team for actually making a tabbing-compatible decoration that's not ugly and helping me find all the little annoying bugs in the decoration API along the way. ^_^;

Currently there are only two tabbing-compatible decorations: The default decoration Oxygen and a brand new minimalistic decoration that has been specifically designed for window tabbing called Tabstrip. Martin plans to eventually add tabbing support to Aurorae, the SVG-based decoration that will be shipping with KDE 4.4, ...read more...

Tom Albers: Digikam Sprint

System & Utilities

While the planet is flooded with reports from the marketing, promo and www sprint, there is another sprint happening in a beautiful place called Essen in Germany.

I arrived there in the afternoon. It was nice to finally meet the people behind Digikam and the kipi-plugins. A few years ago I learned C++/Qt hacking while working on Digikam. It was a wonderful time. Since then I’ve moved on, but I’ve returned to this sprint to give a presentation about Akonadi. As Akonadi is fully type independent, it is able to be used for Digikam. It would open a nice new set of oppertunities.

For example, you could organize your images while your offline. Not only the images on your local hard disk, but also on your Facebook, Flickr or Gallery based website. As soon as you connect to the internet again, it would execute all the moves. Can make that train trip to Berlin so much more productive, right?

Another feature would be to use your image based resources to attach an image as an attachment to an email. ...read more...

Luca Beltrame (einar77): KDE Marketing Sprint – Day 2(?)

System & Utilities

Well, there wasn’t a Day 1 for me (I got to the hotel too late to follow the first day of the meeting), so that is why I’m starting on day 2. To start, I need to say that I had never been to a sprint before: I am already accustomed to meeting for real someone from online, but for all the attendants, they had been just names or nicks on IRC. That means I was a bit nervous.

The first encounter worked out pretty well, actually. I went with the others to have a dinner out, and I got to talk to “famous” KDE people such as Troy, Lydia, or Jos. I also had the nice opportunity to meet up with my fellow forum administrator neverendingo, and we discussed a bit on how to improve the forums. In short, the evening was really nice. I even got to see a N900! I thought I’d never see that. A very nice piece of hardware, I’d say.

The following morning, aside a little incident (the other people forgot about me!) I ...read more...

Jason Kasper (vanRijn): Having spent a few days with his MacBook Pro…

System & Utilities

I recently blogged about Desktop Linux possibly having some core/fundamental problems that might be keeping it from enjoying mainstream adoption and 3rd party developer attention as compared to, say, OS X. To my immediate defense, I’ll say that it was actually more of a brain dump and rant (True Story!) than a well-thought-out dissertation on all of the issues at hand. The impetus in this case was:

  1. Frustration with a particular admittedly proprietary application that didn’t use to have any problems in Ubuntu 8.10, and since then has been nothing but trouble for me and roughly 90,000 other people. You may say that it’s unfair to fly off the handle at one proprietary application having problems and condemn all of Desktop Linux, but I do not think this is limited to only one proprietary application.
  2. A shiny new MacBook Pro in my possession and an epiphany of “this is what we’ve been working for, guys and we’ve been doing it for more than a decade and we’re still not there yet, why?”  And I’m ...read more...

Troy Unrau: Marketing Sprint: The Juggernaut Strikes Back

System & Utilities Blog is a funny word. If you repeat it fast enough while speaking aloud, you make a noise previously only known to the muppets. Blogblogblogblog... The people at the table here are looking at me strange.

Anyway, day 2 was, for the most part, slower than the first. This was possibly due to the German beer consumed last night by a number of our party. Nevertheless, Cornelius arrived and took us to task on choosing names for things that are now needing a name. More to be announced once we give the affected internal community some chance for feedback.

Also, the kde.org web remake is underway, with my hand-wavy mockups somehow being accepted, but for no good reason that I can tell. I'm not an artist, but I can draw boxes on a whiteboard with the best of them :P Hopefully we can get a few mockups up and available soon, coinciding with the new branding efforts. This meeting has essentially become branding central, and we're getting into hard core marketing mode.

We had some conversations about ...read more...

Peter Penz: Searching

System & Utilities If I compare the number of files on my current hard disk with the number of files I had 10 years ago, I'm quite amazed. How to deal with this increased number of files is topic of a lot discussions. Tagging, searching, filtering, relations, virtual folders... - terms, where from a KDE-developer's point of view Nepomuk comes to mind, which provides already all the technical base. Still there is the task to integrate Nepomuk into applications, so that users out there are able to benefit from this great technology.

It's a small step only, but at least one step further: During the last week I've integrated Addam Kidder's GSoC 2009 work into Dolphin. I know that some people don't see searching and filtering as "the solution" to deal with the increased number of files and I agree. Nepomuk offers a lot more, still the searching and filtering is a basic feature, that I personally require quite often during my workflow. The current state of the code is far from finished, still the basics are there now. ...read more...

Stuart Jarvis: Promo Sprint Day 1

System & Utilities

Ok, I’m getting these done pretty late (since it’s now well in to day 2).

KONSEC has provided us with a couple of nice conference rooms (both big enough to hold everyone, but also allowing us to split in to different teams working on different projects) complete with wired and wireless internet and even free hot drinks so we can all get a caffeine boost from time to time and stay awake :-)

As Troy mentioned already, one of the first tasks of the first day was sorting out the basic structure of the rebranding – separating the entity that produces our software from the software itself and really making it obvious that you can use KDE applications on Gnome, Windows, Mac, wherever…

It also gets us away from trying to find sensible ways of saying “KDE releases KDE” which arises when we have the same name for product and community. There’s still more discussion of branding issues (going on now) and we need to actually pick some names too :-)

In the afternoon ...read more...

it-s: Just a new wallpaper

System & Utilities Dear Planet,

Bothering you is fun, since you can't really away :D
/me is sadistic today

Unfortunately I have nothing serious to bother you with at this time, but just you wait till the promo sprint is over ;) From then on - it will be a torture chamber, I promise. For now, however I just want to share... *gasp* Yes, I do charity sometimes ;)

Recently Nunno called me up (on IRC) and told me KDE needs a change of style, so if I can come up with a wallpaper that is trendy and changing enough, Oxygen team will base the entire Plasma theme on it (or something like that anyhow). So I have been hard at work doing just that, so trying anyways. Unfortunately with me it's not that simple. I'm not a mad genius people think I am, and I don't come up with a great peace of art in five minutes (I wish I could). It usually takes me hours upon hours of sketching, probing, failing, and trying again, and again, and again. So by the end of the process ...read more...

Sacha Schutz (DrIDK): translatoid with remember option

System & Utilities Translatoid is a very usefull plasmoid for people like me with some difficult to speak english, spanish , german etc....
If you have used translatoid before, maybe you notice that you translate many time the same word or sentence..
So, now translatoid will remember for you some word you have already translated. For example, if you want to remember a translation, just click on the yellow star, and translatoid will remember it in a sqlite file. And after, translatoid will be able to show you random sentences or words!
I m using now Extender plasmoid to do that and it's very usefull!!

Wait for the release, I will publish it tonight.

Troy Unrau: Marketing Sprint Day 0; 1

System & Utilities Alright folks, so the KDE marketing juggernaut (subtle laughter) is meeting this weekend in Stuttgart. All 15 of us present are hard at work, bikeshedding with the best of them. Fortunately, when we take a break from discussion what shade of blue the bikeshed should be (because, obviously, it must be blue), we're actually getting some decent work done.

First and foremost, we had some food, providing a venue for pre-sprint arguments (purpose of marketing, targets for promotion materials, etc.) and learning of some Gerglish.

After a good night's sleep, and recovery from jet lag, we set to work this morning at 9AM, starting with some boilerplate work, like scheduling our work schedule for the sprint. Then the fun began:

First topic: branding meeting this morning, including the future nomenclature for KDE. More on this will be announced on the dot as soon as we discover a word that we like enough to describe the current state of affairs. Essentially, KDE will be defined as follows in official marketing materials:

Casper van Donderen (cvandonderen): Hidden advantages of KDE-Windows

System & Utilities

(Disclaimer: I run OpenSUSE from my external HDD when I need Linux (not often), just updated to 11.2 and graphics performance (my reason for using Windows) improved alot!)

A week ago I needed to do two presentations with my project group about the work we did in the minor program ‘Language and Speechtechnology’ in which I am currently enrolled.

After an introduction in LaTeX during the evenings in the appartment during this years’ CeBIT (Thanks Stefan Majewsky & Felix Lemke) I decided to write all my documents in LaTeX, the sheets for the presentation I created using Beamer.

My project group does not know what LaTeX is and they said: “that’s convenient, a progress bar in you presentation PDF’s”. One of the guys then opened the PDF in Adobe Reader and did not see the progress and was asking why that was. I told the guy (who has a bit of a grudge against KDE) that presentation progress is a function in Okular which AR does not have. The rest of the group then said: “Let’s do the presentation using ...read more...

Harald Hvaal (metellius): KDE on multiuser/multicomputer systems?

System & Utilities

On my schools computer lab we have lots of desktop computers all with gnome, kde and various other wm’s installed, with the home folder shared across all computers. Lately I’ve become more and more conscious of the various bugs setups like this bring in KDE. Even though most of the computers in question run the same (k)ubuntu, there’s many times more glitches than a similar single-user system. Things like “do you want to forget these audio devices” popping up on every login, plasmoids randomly failing to load when changing computers, wallpapers also randomly going blank, having to resize the panels when changing to/from a widescreen computer, plasmoid positions jumping around, etc etc, they all make me wonder how much the changing environment case has been taken into account designing the KDE desktop.

Are there tricks to get working setups for my case? Would the best bet perhaps to be to only use a least common denominator type of setup, only introducing new stuff when I know they work everywhere? Or am I crazy to even expect the desktop ...read more...

Stuart Jarvis: Promo Sprint day 0

System & Utilities

Arrived in Stuttgart for the KDE promo sprint. A few early observations:

  • I should pay more attention to street names to avoid getting lost
  • Meeting up with someone at the one of the biggest u-bahn stations can be tricky
  • The German rail network really is good (still)
  • Late arriving newcomers get hugs and beer – was apparently supposed to be a group hug – still have hopes for that later ;-)
  • Pigs do indeed fly (Troy can confirm)

Proper work starts today – at 9am sharp. So now… breakfast.

Leo Franchi (lfranchi): camping out for kde

System & Utilities many of you have probably seen in passing jeff's blog post announcing camp kde 2010. maybe some of you even remember what it is! well i'll refresh your memory anyway. campkde is the western hemisphere's response to akademy.
hacking discussions take on a whole new meaning when on a beach like this
it is like the little brother that can't stand being ignored so he decides to make things happen himself. it's quite probably analogous to the overlooked friend trying to make himself known.


well, this post is here to remind you. campkde 2009 was one of the best conferences i've never attended, and I look forward to it happening again. even though a bunch of hackers descended upon some tropical beach resort, we were productive. had you come upon us at 10pm you would have seen a 20odd group of people sitting in chairs a few feet from the beach, drinks in hand, coding or ...read more...

Albert Astals Cid (TSDgeos): Moving to Dublin

System & Utilities Some of you may already know, but probably most don't.

I will be leaving my home city of L'Hospitalet and moving to Dublin the second week of December.

This is a huge change for me since I'll stop living with my parents and live on my own for the first time of my life, also in a place where they don't speak my mother tongue, so it's both scary and motivating.

This also means I'll probably have less time for KDE since I'll have to do the boring real life cleaning/cooking stuff i don't do at the moment so you all will have to live with less bugging about "const &" by me.

It's been a very interesting year working with the cool dudes at Miraveo and i really wish them luck for the future but the company i'll be working for had a monetary offer i could not really refuse without trying to see what they do have to offer.

Danny Kukawka: My freedesktop.org stuff is online again

System & Utilities

It's a while since the last post on my blog, so here the latest news:

Two weeks ago, after some weeks of absence, I tried to commit some patches to my hal/hal-info git repo at freedesktop.org, but there was no git repo anymore. In fact my complete home at people.freedesktop.org was empty. 

After wonder around about the reason, I found out that the freedesktop admins lost the complete /home filesystem during a power outage (see the announcement). Unfortunately there was obviously no backup (whyever!) and also no email announcement to the affected users after all . That's why my repos weren't reachable for nearly a month. Thanks for the service at  people.freedesktop.org in general (really!), but this was a lousy incident handling.

Anyway! You can find now again:

  • my HAL git repo: here
  • my hal-info git repo: here
  • several different versions of the HAL specification: here

Adenilson Cavalcanti (Savago): Nokia Booklet 3G: KDE and plasma

System & Utilities

As in the previous post, I wrote that the Intel GMA 500 drivers for Linux are problematic. The result is that trying to enable composite effects using OpenGL will result in rendering artifacts and crashes in both KDE and Gnome (in a side note, qtdemo will fail with “Application calling GLX 1.3 function “glXCreatePixmap” when GLX 1.3 is not supported!” but at least works with -graphicssystem=raster).

Last Sunday, I compiled Qt 4.6 and KDE from trunk  in the booklet and started to play with it to make it run well. The only way that I found for composite was to use XRender  (yeah, it will run way slower, but it is a workaround while we don’t have good graphics drivers).

As the result, the KDE effects based on KWin were running slow (so the workaround was to change the animation speed to ‘Instant’). The result of this hacks can be seen in the following videos, which I recommend watching in fullscreen (sorry about my Portuguese accented English):

Sayak Banerjee (sayakb): HowTo setup a fancy Grub

System & Utilities

Well, I’m quite certain that there are a million tutorials on this subject. But I felt that the way I set up my Grub was really easy  and worth sharing. What I am trying to do here is to install a splashimage with the Grub2 bootloader on a (K)ubuntu (or equivalent) system. So here goes…

  1. To begin with, you’d need to install the “grub2-splashimages” package. Please make sure that you’re running Grub2 and not an older version before you continue. $ sudo apt-get install grub2-splashimages
  2. Once you do that, you should have a bunch of images under the folder: /usr/share/images/grub/
  3. By default, Grub should offer you a 640×480 resolution. In most cases, the graphics card supports a higher resolution. You can check the highest available resolution by entering into the Grub command mode (press ‘c’ at the boot menu) and typing vbeinfo. Let us assume that your graphics card can support upto 1024×768 resolution at a 32-bit color depth.
  4. Once you know the resolution, you can scale your own image to that size and save it as a ...read more...

Adriaan de Groot (adridg): KDE 4.3.2 on OpenSolaris

System & Utilities

For those tracking KDE4 OpenSolaris, I’ve updated the pkg repository for KDE4 packages. There’s a couple of things to note:

  • This build requires nv126 or later. Build 124 introduced some new incompatibilities in OpenSolaris itself, which trips up kdebase-apps builds — this has been hacked around, but we need to find a good fix that we can upstream.
  • There will be no KDE 4.3.3 from the KDE4-OpenSolaris folks. We’re going to focus on 4.4.0, since there’s plenty to chase after there. Hajma has been doing a great job in tracking trunk these days, and I’ve been tagging along with 4.3.2.
  • Upstreaming patches is tough. We intend to actually set up nightly builds that report to the KDE dashboard, as Alexander Neudorf has once again extended the hand of friendship to us non-Linux folks for the dashboard.
  • As always, the source specfiles can be found on solaris.bionicmutton.org/hg/ and they all point to the original upstream sources.

Daniel Nicoletti (dantti): PackageKit and Debconf status

System & Utilities

On my last post I bloged about PackageKit and Debian problems, those that could be solved by creating  DBus interface to bind Debconf elements using DBus, this way KPackageKit and Gnome-PackageKit could just implement Kde/Gtk frontends.

This was an easy task, I created a new DBus Debconf frontend which connects to some frontend using the system bus, it took about 2 weeks to write it plus a Kde frontend to test. I works quite well (you can see the screen shots below). I sent some mails to Debian Devel mailing list before and got some positive feedback, but when I talked with Colin Watson (Debonf devel) about this he didn`t like it very much, in resume his conclusions was that we would end up duplicating the existing Gnome and Kde frontends (which in kde case does not work in squeeze due the lack of perl-qt4).

Of course I got a bit frustrated since I created a simple solution that would solve our problems but seems like it was not the best idea, then talking with Michael Vogt (Synaptic) ...read more...

Jonathan Riddell (riddell): Linux Desktop Ready for the Users

System & Utilities

I often say that my hypothetical user for Kubuntu is my girlfriend. Unfortunately I'm between girlfriends at the moment but the intent is still there. Someone who uses the computer for everyday tasks of web browsing, chatting, watching videos, listening to music, writing some documents, storing photos. But also someone who doesn't care about computers any more than I care about my car, it should do the job but I don't want to have to fiddle with it to get it to work. Unfortunately I rarely get the chance to try out Kubuntu on such users, my family have all been using computers far longer than I have and are just as stuck in their ways as I am in mine.

But yesterday I did get a chance to install Kubuntu on a dying WIndows machine. The worst part of the process was booting up Windows to see how much disk space there was, it took 20 minutes to boot up loading all the half broken vendor apps and anti-virus software. Then it took 20 minutes just to shut ...read more...

Till Adam: Thank you, Klaas

System & Utilities

I'm back from the awesome Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. It feels good to be back in Berlin and with my family, but I'm very scared of the backlog that now awaits me. Before I tackle it (and potentially blog more about the event) I need to get something off my chest, lest it is forgotten. I'd like to publicly thank Klaas Freitag, who's term as a member of the KDE e.V. board of directors just ended with our general assembly a few days ago, for his contribution to our project. He stepped up to help out with the more mundane and every-day tasks that are required of the board, thus freeing up people like our beloved bouncing ball and poster boy Aaron (who's term also ended, but who'll get plenty credit anyway Eye-wink to do what they do best. I really admire the effective, quiet and ego-less way in which Klaas has carried himself and represented us. He's done a lot of work behind the scenes that benefits KDE greatly and helped get e.V. and ...read more...
