Leftovers: KDE

Filed under
KDE
  • Qt Input Method – Virtual Keyboard
  • Qt and KDAB at CppCon 2015
  • Pointing devices KCM: status report
  • High DPI in Plasma 5.4

    As retrofitting high DPI support into such a large range of both KDE and third party applications is risky to do without breakage, progress is deliberately slow and gradual in order to do this right.

  • August Update
  • KSnapshot-Next

    It's actually a little more complicated than that. I started to work on the KF5 port of KSnapshot (EDIT: no, contrary to what Phoronix claims this port is not my work; I simply wanted to fix anything that needed fixing) sometime in early March this year, before I realised that the codebase, while perfectly in order for being a X11-only screenshot taker for KDE (yes, KSnapshot actually has a complete and fairly decent KF5 port in its frameworks branch on KDE Git), was in need of a major overhaul if we were going to get proper Wayland support in.

  • Google Summer of Code:Update

    It has been one month exactly, since my previous update. This was due to opening fall semester of my college on mid-July, then went to participate at hackIndia, where we developed Corazon, Corazon-backend and at last conducted Mozilla Marketplace Day.

  • Incubating Snorenotify

    Now you might say we already have KNotifications, that’s right. KNotifications is awesome if you are a KDE application and running in a Plasma setup. Snorenotify aims at providing less features than KNotifications but also at being standalone and being directly integrated in an application.

Linux As An Alternative To Windows & MacOS

I downloaded Mandrake Linux and installed it onto my computer and tried it. It had a familiar-looking desktop, not exactly like windows but not too alien from it either. It contained some useful software including a web browser, email program, office suite, etc, and I loved trying something truly different. The problem I found though, it was too difficult to download new programs and to customise the user experience. It had a command-line interface meaning you needed to type computer code to download programs or change the system to your liking. Although it looked familiar, to use it on a day-to-day basis, a certain amount of coding knowledge was required. I wanted to use my computer to be productive rather than learning to code to use it. Although this experiment was enjoyable, at this stage Linux just wasn’t for me. Read more
