New artist talent for KDE

Filed under
KDE

The Oxygen project is an impressive example for the artist skills some people of the KDE project have. Now a newcomer came up to help the Kalzium project and showed his first drawings which are of a high quality.

Some projects have special graphics needs. Especially the KDE games and KDE edu sections have applications which need specific pieces of art. In such cases sometimes one of the Oxygen guys steps up and tries to help, but sometimes other people from “outside” step in. This happened recently with Kalzium which was searching for artists to create an entire iconset for the elements of the periodic table.

Full Story.

Susan,

If Drupal enables you to extend the RSS feed's scope beyond 10 items, that would be a dream. You're too fast for me. While Thunderbird has retention, RSSOwl (I use it for Linux stuff) lets items 'leak' out of view, owing to your posting pace (which is admirable nonetheless).

Will happy if a modification is considered... Smile

Is it just me or has

Is it just me or has tuxmachines been loading a bit slow the last few weeks?

re: Is it just me

Well, several folks have mentioned that it's a bit faster since moving the underlying operating system from gentoo to debian. the 2.6 debian system is performing better than the old 2.4 gentoo did.

But I'm still constrained by the connection speed. And bellsouth tends to have network slowdown problems, at least in the past 6 months or so. It was doing better there for a while, but I noticed it slowed back down again the past 5 or 6 days. I've had users email me traceroutes showing packets merrily hopping along around the net until they hit bellsouth servers - then response times significantly increase.

I've tried affordable hosting, but users reported no significant increase in performance/speed while the site suffered oft occuring downtimes, so until I can afford dedicated hosting, all I can do is apologize.

Yay!

I've just noticed the change (to 30). Thanks a million! You're a star!!

re: Yay

Yeah, sorry, I meant to answer you. Yeah, drupal has the option of up to 30 and I thought that some really busy days I probably do post over 20.

Okay, I'm catching up with

Okay, I'm catching up with comments now. Thanks for the changes. The high pace is an excellent thing. I always end my 'tour' through the feeds with your site, which alllows to 'collect' stories I have missed, as well as blogs that don't receive the attention they deserve. I consider site an invaluable resource. I don't know how you manage to find all that stuff!

Linux 4.7 and Linux 4.8

  • Linux Kernel 4.7 Officially Released, Introduces Support for Radeon RX480 GPUs
    Today, July 24, 2016, after a week of holiday fun, Linus Torvalds has had the great pleasure of announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.7 for all GNU/Linux operating systems. The Linux 4.7 kernel has been in development for the past two months, but that shouldn't surprise anyone who is either reading our website on a regular basis or keeping pace with the Linux kernel development cycle, which was very normal for this branch. A total of seven Release Candidate (RC) testing builds were released since May 29, 2016, which introduced numerous new features and improvements.
  • The Biggest Features Of The Linux 4.7 Kernel
    If all goes according to plan, the Linux 4.7 kernel will be released before the day is through.
  • The Size Of Different DRM Graphics Drivers In Linux 4.7
    Last October I looked at The Size Of The Different Open-Source Linux DRM/Mesa Graphics Drivers, but with it being nearly one year since then and Linux 4.7 due out today, I decided to run some fresh L.O.C. measurements on the popular DRM/KMS drivers to see their current sizes. This lines-of-code counting was mostly done out of a curiosity factor. In this article I'm just looking at the in-kernel DRM code and not the Mesa drivers, DDX drivers, LLVM back-ends, or anything else in user-space related to the open-source graphics drivers.

  • Hardened Usercopy Appears Ready To Be Merged For Linux 4.8
    Yet another Linux kernel security feature coming to the mainline kernel that appears readied for the Linux 4.8 merge window is hardened usercopy. Hardened usercopy was originally based upon GrSecurity's PAX_USERCOPY feature but reworked into a whole new form, according to developer Kees Cook at Google. This hardened usercopy is to be exposed as the CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY option within the kernel.

elementary OS 0.4 "Loki" Gets New Beta with over 70 Bugfixes, RC1 Coming Next

The guys over elementary OS have released a second Beta version of the highly anticipated elementary OS 0.4 "Loki" operating system, fixing numerous of the issues reported by users since the first Beta. This time, the announcement was made by Daniel 'DanRabbit' Foré, who reports that more than 70 bugs reported by public beta testers since last month's Beta release have been squashed, and that many of the fixes are in fact configuration changes, which means that they won't be available to those running the first Beta build, so they'll have to make a fresh install.
