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 =)

Manjaro Linux Phasing out i686 (32bit) Support

In a not very surprising move by the Manjaro Linux developers, a blog post was made by Philip, the Lead Developer of the popular distribution based off Arch Linux, On Sept. 23 that reveals that 32-bit support will be phased out. In his announcement, Philip says, “Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture. The decision means that v17.0.3 ISO will be the last that allows to install 32 bit Manjaro Linux. September and October will be our deprecation period, during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting from November 2017, packaging will no longer require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported.” Read more

Korora 26 'Bloat' Fedora-based Linux distro available for download -- now 64-bit only

Fedora is my favorite Linux distribution, but I don't always use it. Sometimes I opt for an operating system that is based on it depending on my needs at the moment. Called "Korora," it adds tweaks, repositories, codecs, and packages that aren't found in the normal Fedora operating system. As a result, Korora deviates from Red Hat's strict FOSS focus -- one of the most endearing things about Fedora. While you can add all of these things to Fedora manually, Korora can save you time by doing the work for you. Read more

BackSlash Linux Olaf

While using BackSlash, I had two serious concerns. The first was with desktop performance. The Plasma-based desktop was not as responsive as I'm used to, in either test environment. Often times disabling effects or file indexing will improve the situation, but the desktop still lagged a bit for me. My other issue was the program crashes I experienced. The Discover software manager crashed on me several times, WPS crashed on start-up the first time on both machines, I lost the settings panel once along with my changes in progress. These problems make me think BackSlash's design may be appealing to newcomers, but I have concerns with the environment's stability. Down the road, once the developers have a chance to iron out some issues and polish the interface, I think BackSlash might do well targeting former macOS users, much the same way Zorin OS tries to appeal to former Windows users. But first, I think the distribution needs to stabilize a bit and squash lingering stability bugs. Read more
