Leftovers: Gaming

GNOME and KDE

GNOME
  • Updates on GNOME Calculator
    The biggest task I’ve been trying to accomplish is to move all the UI code to GtkBuilder .ui files and rework the codebase to use them as reusable templates.
  • Developer Experience Hackfest 2016
    First of all I would like to thanks the GNOME Foundation for sponsoring once again my trip to Brussels for the GNOME Developer Experience Hackfest. Besides hacking on Glade and attending FOSDEM I had a great time meeting with old friends and making new ones, not to mention the amount and variety of beers consumed
KDE
  • Some Neon Artwork
    This is pretty exciting for anyone who wants a stable core system with a setup of KDE Plasma software on to as recent as possible, setted-up and configured as good as possible, with hopefully less issues like “distro X has a slightly outdated version of kibrary Y which is know that makes app Z crash”.
  • HIG about Simple vs. Advanced Settings
    Recently the question was asked in the KDE forums how we handle advanced settings. While there is neither a best practice nor a common approach in KDE software, we actually discussed a similar concept in respect to the Plasma control modules (KCM). The updated organization of KCMs was implemented by the developers, the community decided about the basic layout, and a couple of proposals were done [1, 2]. So why don't generalize this idea and write a guideline?
  • 3DPrinterChat -Your 3DPrint Community
    Last week I received and invitation to be a columnist on a blog about 3DPrinting, 3DPrinterChat, and I already made 3 blog posts. It’s amazing. I’m learning more about 3dprinting and sharing the knowledge that I have. It’s a wonderfull website to people that want know more about 3dprinting and how to start use a 3dprinter.
  • Outside the Stellarator
    After having spent a great deal of time improving Plasma, I recently focussed on other ares of our workspace, such as KRunner, and various KDE Applications.
  • Heavy activities setup
    I’ve always had more than a few activities lying around - mainly one for each project I’m working on. Be it KDE, Work, Studies, etc. But I was basing my workflow not only on them, but also on virtual desktops. I had four of them, the first one to keep the web browser and the mail client in, two for actual work (that is related to the current activity), and the last one to keep the music player in.
