openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 1 KDE 4.9.2

Filed under
SUSE

After taking a peek at openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 1 GNOME 3.6 earlier i was curious as to how KDE 4.9 is coming along in openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 1. The last time i took a look at a KDE desktop was when Milestone 3 was released for openSUSE 12.2. Since i had already covered about how i got the LIVE ISO for GNOME and booted from it i am not repeating the same stuff here.

Live ISO Overview

The default KDE desktop is as shown below. It is pretty, glassy, stylish and sleek. It is definitely the James Bond among the X windows. It has more gadgets oops widgets than James Bond though Smile. After using GNOME 3.X desktop for around 2 years now I started looking around for Activities window and those big round icons of GNOME on a KDE desktop.How stupid of me. KDE is definitely the most good looking desktop for those who prefer the classic desktop.

  • ocs-client GSoC
    So my GSoC is coming to its end. I have no cool screenshots to upload this time and I have no new great features to talk about, in fact Caludio and I manly focused on bugfixing and testing. We have spent time also discussing about possible changes and improvements to the current OCS protocol. So is the client ready do be lunched? In short I would say that no, not yet.. although most of its features are implemented and it is usable, it is still an “under construction” project, we both still have to make some important decisions to make it usable to everyone.
  • The Fiber Engine Poll, Updates, and Breeze
  • Bringing Akonadi Next up to speed
    and refactoring it again, to make sure the codebase remains as clean as possible. The result of that is that an implementation of a simple resource only takes a couple of template instantiations, apart from code that interacts with the datasource (e.g. your IMAP Server) which I obviously can’t do for the resource.
  • New linter integration plugins for KDevelop
  • Artikulate Plans for Randa
    Language learning is often considered as the task of memorizing new vocabulary and understanding the new grammar rules. Yet for most, the most challenging part is to actually get used to speak the new language. This is a problem that Artikulate approaches with a simple idea: to learn the correct pronunciation of a word or even a longer phrase, the learner listens to a native speaker recording, repeats and recordings it, and finally compares both recordings to improve herself/himself with the next try.
