KDE 3: All About the Apps Part 3

Filed under
KDE

KDE 3.5 is a vivid platform. We looked at some reasons why three weeks ago and also last week. Today, we look at the photo-manager Digikam, the plotting application QtiPlot, the LaTeX-dreamteam Kile and KBibTex and the upcoming KDE 3.5.3 release.

Digikam

If you have a digital SLR or other high-quality digital camera, you have probably noticed that the photos stored on it are not just simple JPEGs. High-end cameras offer the RAW file format, which stores the unmodified data from the cameras sensors. This means no quality is lost, and you can get 100% clarity out of your pictures. Many cameras also offer 12 bit and 16 bit colourspaces. Unfortunately, GIMP doesn't support these colourspaces and also cannot handle LCMS colour schemes.

Kile

Kile is KDEs LaTeX-editor of choice. Version 1.9 was released on March 17 and makes Kile even better.

Full Story.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
