Arch Linux + KDEmod: Custom KDE 4.3 Setup

Filed under

Well, it turns out that every time I try openSUSE, I end up going back to Arch Linux. So back to Arch it was and of course, KDEmod. For those of you don't know, KDEmod is basically a modular version of KDE provided by the developers behind the Chakra project. KDEmod exists as a repository which you can add to Arch Linux and run KDE. Chakra provides a LiveCD of Arch Linux + KDEmod along with some additional tools that integrate well with the system. Chakra is still in the Alpha development stage, so I'd recommend installing Arch followed by KDEmod. If you're new to Arch, you might want to read the Beginner's Guide on the wiki.

So I was fiddling around with my KDEmod setup (currently using the kdemod-testing repo) before the release of KDE 4.3. I'm currently running KDE 4.3 Release Candidate 2 (RC 2). Here are the details of my configuration below a screenshot of my normal desktop.

  • Developers Are Ethical But Not Responsible?
    Ask a person if he or she is a racist and the answer is almost always no. Ask a developer if they consider ethical considerations when writing code and only six percent say no. If everyone acted the way they self-report, then there would be peace and love throughout the world. Based on over a hundred thousand respondents, StackOverflow’s Developer Survey 2018 presents a more complicated reality. If they were asked to write code for an unethical purpose, 59 percent would say no, but another 37 percent of developers were non-committal about whether they would comply. In another question, only about 5 percent said they definitely not report unethical problems with code. But sounding the alarm is about as far as most people will go.
