KDE
  • Qt Creator 4.4 Enters Beta

    The Qt Company has announced the first public beta of the Qt Creator 4.4 integrated development environment.

  • Gsoc Week 5 , 6 , 7
  • Oware - Single player

    There are also some changes in my GSoC plan. I thought of working on computer activity after oware earlier when I made my proposal but with discussions with my mentors we came to a conclusion that musical activities are more important for a child. So I would be working on musical activities now which includes play piano and note names activity which were started in the branch Play piano and were earlier to be done in my last month. My aim would be to complete both these activities.

  • GNOME Settings Continues Looking Better With Its New WiFi Panel

    Georges Stavracas' latest work on GNOME is the new WiFi panel for the GNOME Settings area.

  • GSoC Report 2

    I am still implementing the latest changes so I couldn’t add the working gifs/videos in this post. (well! I’m working on GNOME Games so I tend to play on it sometimes too Tongue)

    I’ll try to finish gamepad mapping system and gamepad reassignment for GUADEC, so we can see the live demo.

  • GNOME Games 3.26 To Feature UI Improvements, New Features
  • The Path to GNOME Games 3.26

    Games presents your games collection and if everything goes as expected, it does so without the need of any input from you. From an implementation point of view it sounds simple to do, just ask Tracker “Hey, gimme all the games” and it’s done. If only it was that simple! The system has no idea which files represent games and which doesn’t, but it can associate a MIME type to each file thanks to shared-mime-info. shared-mime-info already had a few video game related MIME types and we added a lot more such as application/x-genesis-rom.

  • Family - Implementing Grid layout

    In my last post, I talked about adding a grid layout to the activity. The inspiration of this layout was to remove the trial and error method of selecting (x,y) positions of a node and to implement a more efficient method of positioning the nodes. Along with that, the distance between two generations and nodes could also be maintained in a homogeneous manner, keeping the layout similar throughout the activity.

KDE: Qt 5.10, Qt4/LabPlot and Akademy 2017

Filed under
KDE
  • New in Qt 5.10: recursive filtering for QSortFilterProxyModel
  • No Qt4/KDE4libs version of LabPlot anymore

    In the past there were two versions of LabPlot. The first one was based on Qt4 and KDE4 libraries. The second one uses Qt 5 and KDE frameworks 5. The development was done mainly in the Qt4-based branch which was merged from time to time to the Qt5/frameworks branch where the porting to Qt5/frameworks, if required, was done after the merge. Clearly, this caused a lot of additional work, was very time consuming sometimes and distracted us too often from the actual development – the development mostly done in our very limited spare time.

  • What to Expect from Akademy 2017 on Day 1

    Akademy opens on Saturday, July 22 at 10 am with Robert Kaye, the brains behind Musicbrainz. We talked with Robert a few days ago, and he will tell us all about his projects and how he managed to marry FLOSS activism with the pragmatism of having to make money in order to keep them alive.

Netrunner Rolling Arch/Manjaro-based KDE Plasma Linux distro gets refreshed ISO

Filed under
KDE
Linux

While GNOME is my favorite desktop environment, I don't hate KDE. Actually, I rather love Plasma when it is done right. Case in point, I absolutely adore Netrunner -- the best KDE-focused Linux-based operating system. Technically, there are two versions of the OS -- the "regular" variant based on Debian and a rolling release based on Arch/Manjaro.

Today, after more than a year, Netrunner Rolling gets a refreshed ISO. This time, we have Netrunner Rolling 2017.07. Some highlights include SMPlayer becoming the default music and video handler, while SUSE Imagewriter is replaced by the KDE Neon variant.

  • digiKam GSoC Students in Egypt

    It was nice meeting Ahmed and Shaza @ faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University in Cairo. I am proud to mentor them in Google Summer of Code.

    Ahmed is working on implementing a DLNA server in digiKam core to export photo and video hosted in physical and virtual collections. The server is ready and he working on the configuration panel UI. See more here.

  • Best be precise

    KSysGuard — the system monitor — on FreeBSD seems oddly precise.

  • Plasma Wayland and Qt 5.9 and beyond

    As you might know Qt 5.8 created challenging problems for our Wayland session and threw our efforts back quite a bit. In this post I want to discuss the actual problems it created, how we are addressing them and looking into the future.

  • The Regressed State Of KDE Plasma On Wayland, But Things Should Get Better

    KWin maintainer Martin Gräßlin has written a blog post explaining the issues they've run into with KDE Plasma on Wayland and how changes to Qt have set them back months in their Wayland session support.

  • Akademy Schedule

    The workshops and lightning talks and BoFs are being planned, too. I’m glad Anu Mittal has mentioned her QML + JS workshop, it’s a great topic for getting started with application development. QML is something I’ve never gotten in to, but should, so I’ve penciled this workshop into my schedule as well.

  • [Krita] GSoC’17-Week #4
  • KF5 Applications Porting

    Next week, KDE developers will release the beta of KDE Applications 17.08. This release will again have more applications and nearly all games ported to Qt5/KF5. While Qt4 is already no longer supported for over a year, KDE has decided to support Qt4/kdelibs4-based applications a bit longer.

    The 17.08 release, however, will be the last to include Qt4/kdelibs4-based applications. This means, 17.12 will only include applications that are based on Qt5/KF5. See this mailing list discussion.

  • Kdenlive 17.04.3 released

    In comparison to previous versions this was the least exciting development cycle, in terms of new features, since all focus has been on the code refactoring which will bring more stability and new features. Don’t miss the next Café to keep track on the progress and share your thoughts if you like.

  • [Krita] Hooray! Watercolor is paintop now! But…

    From the very beginning, watercolor was conceived as brush engine. I think it is the best place for it. But it brings some troubles. The most important problem is how to make undo engine.

    During a new stroke, the system can have previous strokes that continue to change. And it’s not clear how watercolor should behave with the rest of the engines. And I would like to ask your help. If you have any idea about it, please leave it in comments =)

  • Trip report: Google Code-In 2016 Summit at Google headquarter

    Heya fellow KDE people,

    just a couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to attend the Google Code-In Summit held in several locations scattered around the San Francisco Bay area. I can tell you first hand: It's been an awesome trip and I encourage anyone else to participate if the opportunity arises.

  • Akademy 2017

    There will be a workshop titled "Playing with the amalgam of QML and JavaScript" conducted by me.

PC-MOS/386 is the latest obsolete operating system to open source on Github

PC-MOS/386 was first announced by The Software Link in 1986 and was released in early 1987. It was capable of working on any x86 computer (though the Intel 80386 was its target market). However, some later chips became incompatible because they didn't have the necessary memory management unit. It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more

GIMP, More Awesome Than I Remember

For what seems like decades, GIMP (Graphic Image Manipulation Program) has been the de facto standard image editor for Linux. It works well, has many features, and it even supports scripting. I always have found it a bit clumsy, however, and I preferred using something else for day-to-day work. I recently had the pleasure of sitting at a computer without an image editor though, so I figured I'd give GIMP another try on a non-Linux operating system. See, the last time I tried to use GIMP on OS X, it required non-standard libraries and home-brew adding. Now, if you head over to the GIMP site, you can download a fully native version of GIMP for Windows, OS X and Linux. Read more

Linux 4.14-rc6

So rc6 is delayed, not because of any development problems, but simply because the internet was horribly bad my usual Sunday afternoon time, and I decided not to even try to fight it. And by delaying things, I got a couple more ull requests in from Greg. Yay, I guess? rc6 is a bit larger than I was hoping for, and I'm not sure whether that is a sign that we _will_ need an rc8 after all this release (which wouldn't be horribly surprising), or whether it's simply due to timing. I'm going to leave that open for now, so just know that rc8 _may_ happen. Read more Also: Linux 4.14-rc6 Released: Linux 4.14 Kernel Final In 2~3 Weeks
