omgubuntu.co.uk: Running GTK+ applications on the KDE desktop isn’t as brutish-looking as it once was. The following tool was created to offer up greater control over GTK apps running in KDE.
cristalinux.blogspot: Later this month we will see the release of the KDE SC 4.8 series, another one of the typical six-month cycles that KDE relentlesly goes through.
As you might have heard, KDE is, more or less, getting a whole new rewrite again. Some folks may read (or write) that with dread given how the last rewrite went for users there for a while. However, perhaps we should take a look at some of the good things instead. One that's come to light recently is a brand new widgets explorer.
datamation.com: No feature defines the KDE 4 release series more than Activities. At the same time, no feature is so little understood. But, when you take the time to learn about Activities, you'll find them a natural extension of the desktop metaphor.
cristalinux.blogspot: KDE SC is great in many, many ways, but I have found that some of those ways are anything but obvious. Users want the quick route to do their thing. In doing so, I overlooked tons of great stuff.
bargincomputing.com: Maximizing the use of screen space on netbook computers is critical, and it really helps when the desktop environment correctly size window to fit the screen. While writing about the KDE, Unity, and Gnome 3 desktops for my Basic Linux course, I made some interesting discoveries.
kde.org: Today KDE released the second release candidate for its renewed Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform. With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing bugs and further polishing new and old functionality.
ppenz.blogspot: When introducing Dolphin 2.0 I talked about grouping support for all view modes. But I could not offer any screenshots, as this feature was not ready yet at that time. So here we go showing the same folder grouped by the file type in the icons-mode (which is already available since Dolphin 1.2):
asinen.org: I was looking back on this year and thinking about what the real successes have been. There have been many great things, new technology and work behind the scenes to make it all happen.
dot.kde.org: Today KDE released the first release candidate for its Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform. With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing bugs and further polishing.
In the official Debian Experimental repositories, KDE 4.7.4 has been released! You need to be running Debian Sid to take advantage of this and be aware that these packages aren't fully vetted and may break your world.
techradar.com: These are interesting times for the Linux desktop. The often-overlooked area of the Linux ecosystem is now the centre of attention and, while some users have welcomed the changes, others have reacted in true community style: ranting and raging.
