KaOS is a very interesting operating system because the developers are choosing their own path. This is one of the few Linux distributions out there that are not based on another OS and everything is built from scratch.
“At the base of the system some of the updates this ISO has, linux 3.14.6 with the futex bug fix included, gcc 4.8.3, llvm 3.4.1, Qt5 5.3.0, openssl 1.0.1.h, mesa 10.2.1, bash 4.3.018, poppler 0.26.1. Systemd 213 was part of the updates tested but did not make the cut, 212 is the version of systemd on this ISO. With this ISO, KaOS makes the switch to present XFS as the default filesystem, a good explanation for the reasons behind this switch can be found in this XFS presentation.
Manjaro KDE is the KDE edition of Manjaro Linux, a desktop distribution based on Arch Linux. Manjaro 0.8.10 KDE is the latest edition, released at the same time as the Xfce and Openbox editions.
Manjaro is one of a handful of desktop distributions based on Arch Linux that are attempting to put a more user-friendly interface on the power of Arch Linux. The others are Antergos and Kademar.
Five years ago, the Krita team decided raise funds to raise Krita to the level of a professional applications . That fundraiser was successful beyond all expectations and enabled us to release Krita 2.4, the first version of Krita ready for professional artists!
Now, it’s time for another fundraiser, much, much more ambitious in scope! Dmitry Kazakov has worked full-time on Krita 2.8, and now we want him to work full-time on Krita 2.9, too. And it’s not just Dmitry: Sven, who has contributed to Krita for over ten years now, has recently finished university and is available as well.
Recently, we ran a study on the reorganization of the KDE system settings (Re-sort KDE control modules and Results of Card Sorting the KDE System Settings). Both the number of participants as well as the discussion in the forum proved the huge interest in this topic.
Based on these information some design proposals have been developed. Their impact on navigation needs to be carefully considered. Following we introduce two possible alternatives how the system settings could look like in the future as (partly) interactive mockups and ask you to vote for your favorite option.
On our Plasma 5 build status page most of the packages are now a pleasing green colour. For the first time today I installed them all and logged in and... it worked! It took a bit of removing old caches and obsolete installs that'd I'd been making in the months previously and that nice temporary Next wallpaper everyone uses doesn't really get shipped so I had to add that and the icons sometimes work and sometimes don't and there's no plasma-nm release yet so I had to grab a copy and build that before I could use the network. But with some fiddle and wee bit ay faff, it works!
This current version of Linux Mint 17 KDE "Qiana" comes with KDE 4.13.0, which is the latest version available right now. The rest of the packages are in place and, if you ever opened a KDE-powered distro, then you won't be surprised by anything.
Just like the other flavors that have been released so far, this one is also based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and will benefit from an extended support period, after it becomes stable, of course. The Linux mint developers announced a while ago that they intended to only base their distros on LTS versions of Ubuntu...
Hello, This is my second report for my GSoC. This week i was working on the Wallpapers and the Activities Configuration. While there was the support for changing the wallpapers the UI was more focused on a desktop rather than a touch device, which wasn’t exactly what we needed for Plasma Active. So the new UI looks like the old one (Plasma Active 1), and the only small change is that we don’t show the wallpaper name.
