The development of SlideViewer – a QML based presentation program

Filed under
KDE
Software

So SlideViewer was born. The beauty of it is that all our Qt developers can help to add features and fix bugs, and even more importantly, we no longer have to stare at incomprehensible error messages from LaTeX, or hunt down a book that will tell us how to get page numbers in the table of contents.

Konqueror vs Firefox

Filed under
KDE
Moz/FF

Firefox has extra features that Konqueror doesn't have and the add-ons might be a deal breaker for some people. The page rendering worked perfectly on every site I tried and to be honest I use it everyday so if it didn't work I wouldn't use it.

Konqueror would be fine for most circumstances but there was at least one example of a page not rendering properly. This could be the reason that openSUSE ships with multiple browsers.

Have you used Konqueror? What have been your experiences?

Re-sort KDE control modules

Filed under
KDE

To look for a particular system settings can be annoying when you do not know in which control module you have to look for. KDE SC has a bunch of top level categories that partially overlap (e.g. Application appearance and Workspace appearance) or rather seem to coincide to normal users. So it’s a good idea to take this arrangement under investigation.

Whatever release ends up being the last Qt4-based release will be preserved in a long-term support form. KDE Frameworks 5, Plasma 2, and the other next-generation KDE components are set to be released later in the year, hence the shift in focus to the newer platform.
