  • KDE Connect Your iPhone to Linux

    One of the biggest benefits of being all-in with Apple’s ecosystem is integration. My text messages automatically appear on my Mac and sharing files from iOS to macOS is a breeze. Even the clipboard integrates my mobile devices with my desktop. Now, a project called KDE Connect brings much of that tight integration to Linux.

KDE Connect Is Finally Coming to iPhone

  • KDE Connect Is Finally Coming to iPhone

    If you’re looking for an easy way to make your iPhone play nice with your KDE desktop, today is your lucky day, as KDE Connect is finally available as an iPhone app (click the article titled “KDE Connect iOS Enters Public TestFlight Testing!”), albeit in beta form.

    To take advantage of KDE Connect on iPhone, you’ll need to jump through a couple of hoops. First, you’ll need to go to this TestFlight link to get set up to test the beta of the KDE Connect app. Additionally, you’ll need to be on iOS 15 for the app to run, so you’ll need to make sure your iPhone is updated.

    Before downloading the app, you can also check out the source repository of KDE Connect iOS to make sure everything looks good.

Best Free and Open Source Alternatives to Apple Final Cut Pro

In 2020, Apple began the Apple silicon transition, using self-designed, 64-bit ARM-based Apple M1 processors on new Mac computers. Maybe it’s the perfect time to move away from the proprietary world of Apple, and embrace the open source Linux scene. Final Cut Pro is a commercial proprietary video editing application which lets users log and transfer video, edit, process the video, and output to a wide variety of formats. What are the best free and open source alternatives? Read more

Open source photo processing with Darktable

It's hard to say how good photographs happen. You have to be in the right place at just the right moment. You have to have a camera at the ready and an eye for composition. And that's just the part that happens in the camera. There's a whole other stage to great photography that many people don't think about. It used to happen with lights and chemicals in a darkroom, but with today's digital tools, post-production happens in darkroom software. One of the best photo processors is Darktable, and I wrote an intro to Darktable article back in 2016. It's been five years since that article, so I thought I'd revisit the application to write about one of its advanced features: masks. Darktable hasn't changed much since I originally wrote about it, which to my mind, is one of the hallmarks of a truly great application. A consistent interface and continued great performance is all one can ask of software, and Darktable remains familiar and powerful. If you're new to Darktable, read my introductory article to learn the basics. Read more
