We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.5.0.

The most apparent new feature in this version is probably the highlighting that we added to the editors’ vertical scroll bars. You can now easily see where
bookmarks, breakpoints, warnings, errors and search results are located in the open document.

  • Support Randa 2015

    Weeeee! KDE is sponsoring Randa Meetings again, this time with touch. And you can help making KDE technologies even better! This exciting story in the Dot this week, https://dot.kde.org/2015/08/16/you-can-help-making-kde-technologies-even-better caught not only my attention, but my pocketbook as well.

  • Kdenlive 15.08: 4 years of maturation, and how to help Free Software to live

    Finally it is ready: Kdenlive 15.08 is an important accomplishment!

  • Usability at the KDE sprint in Randa
  • Final evaluation

    As we all know we have our final evaluation of our GSOC project next week. I have completed my project and would like to display how the integration between Cantor and LabPlot works.

  • PUCK: Replacing QML with Yaml, CoffeeScript, LiveScript or *Script
  • Sprinting KDE Connect

    KDE Connect is nowadays on a sweet moment where many things can happen. This is an interesting moment to sprint, because it will allow all of us to work together on interesting features that can then be merged at once with greater impact.

  • A Qt Platform Abstraction plugin for KWin

    In Qt we have the Platform Abstraction (QPA) which allows to better interact with the used windowing system through a plugin. In case of KWin we use the “xcb” plugin on X11 and on Wayland we used to use the “wayland” plugin provided by QtWayland. For quite some time I had been thinking about migrating away from those and use an own KWin-specific plugin at least for Wayland.

Linux Mint 17.2 KDE: do you have the hardware?

KDE
Reviews

Linux Mint 17.2 KDE felt solid and responsive to me, apart from one occurrence that I mentioned above.

It is based on a solid distribution and adds some useful features like necessary codecs.

KDE always had its fans for the convenience, high level of integration and the ease of navigation. On the flipside, KDE is usually considered a Desktop Environment for high-performance hardware.

  • Another KDE success story - the Incubator - Part 1

    The incubator couples a sponsor from the KDE community with a plan to move/migrate a project into the systems that KDE provides as a community including mailing lists, websites, code repositories, etc. One of the main responsibilities of the sponsor is to help the project's members become part of the KDE community itself by guiding in any way required and helping with source code migration, mailing list migration and figuring out the other aspects of how the KDE community works.

  • My forecast for the next 4 months

    With energy from Akademy still running though my veins but slowly lowering I’m looking at the next FLOSS (Free Libre Open Source Software) events.

  • Using git the proper way for correct release changelogs
  • The KDE Plasma 5.4 Release Candidate is ready for testing in Kubuntu Wily
  • KDE Plasma 5.4 Beta on Kubuntu 15.10 Full Review 1080p
  • Powered By Swiss Cheese - My Plans For Randa
  • OSM tags in Marble's map editor

    OpenStreetMap(OSM) tags play an important role in both rendering and searching for placemarks in any OSM based map. This makes editing them inside Marble an absolute must.

  • Akademy 2015

    The First two days had talks related to various parts of KDE the highlight being the announcement of Plasma Mobile, KDE's attempt at an open platform for mobile which is capable of running full fledged Qt applications and in the future will run android applications as well.

  • You can help making KDE technologies even better!

    Modern life has become increasingly dependent on software systems. Many daily used devices rely on Free Software for their basic functionality or additional services. TV sets, ATMs, smartphones, media centers and in-flight entertainment systems are examples of how Free Software has been pushing the boundaries of current technology. This is achieved by using well-proven solutions, developed in a collaborative, open, and trusted way. The Workspaces, Applications, and Frameworks delivered by KDE are representatives of the empowerment Free Software provides to our lifes. Examples are educational applications of the KDE-Edu suite, lots of KDE technology deployments in public centers for digital inclusion and a full open software stack for mobile devices with Plasma Mobile.

KDE Plasma 5--No separate wallpaper or widgets for each virtual desktop!

Filed under
KDE

I've been sticking with KDE4, but I decided to install a distro with the new KDE and Plasma 5 on a spare machine. Imagine my shock, when I set-up two virtual desktops under Plasma 5 and I could only have the same wallpaper for both!

Not only that, but each virtual desktop must display exactly the same widgets.

5 Reasons Not To "Not Use Linux"

2000+ people have already watched Tim's video and that is potentially 2000 people that might not use Linux based on invalid arguments. Hopefully a few more people will read this article and therefore redress the balance somewhat. Before I go I wanted to mention that Tim has produced his own counter argument called "5 Reasons To Use Linux". The points in that video state that Linux is multikernel, is open source, has support for many different hardware devices such as the Raspberry PI, has lots of distros (which kind of counters against point 5 in the reasons not to use Linux) and finally it is free.
