Living in the real world with KDE

KDE

Today (and the last few days, and I generally does that quite all the time) I have been using KDE applications extensively in real life projects, today a tight day in the fundraising group in the sailing club.

Discussing via email what should go in our ‘sales’ material, and producing that material using KWord, Krita, Digikam, Konqueror and KPDF.

I have reported 5 bugs at least during the day, but in general my results are good.
KWord is very nice so long as you don’t need tables in your document, my problems were limited to problems printing with Bitstream Vera fonts, a small misbehavior when pasting, and a problem with missing spellchecking.

With KMail, I have two main areas of annoyment.

Full Story.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
