The KDE 4.5 Notification Area

KDE

ghacks.net: With KDE 4.5 came a lot of updates and changes. From the bottom to the top, nothing was immune from an update or two. One tool that received a nice overhaul is the Notification Area.

KDE 4.5, through my GNOME eyes.

openattitude.com: So I’ve had a play with the KDE 4.5 Live CD and thought I’d share my first impressions, coloured by the fact that I’m currently using the GNOME desktop environment on my installation of Linux Mint.

The KDE 4.5 Semantic Desktop

Filed under
KDE

ghacks.net: My last article I spoke about the new KDE Activities features Search and Launch Containment Activity. This is the first visible sign of KDE’s use of the Nepomuk Semantic Desktop. Nepomuk is a system that uses metadata throughout the desktop to aid in file search and peer to peer collaboration. So far the project has yet to reach its full potential.

KDE 4.5 Trades Revolution for Evolution

Filed under
KDE

earthweb.com: By the standards of previous releases in the KDE 4 series, KDE 4.5 is tame. It has few new applications, and introduces no new technologies. Yet with its combination of small innovations and interface improvements, KDE 4.5 still manages to be a release worth installing.

Filed under
KDE

ghacks.net: The Search and Launch Containment Activity was only recently introduced in the 4.5 branch and is a fairly significant in the KDE desktop. In this article I am going to explain this Activity and show you how to take advantage of it.

KDE Desktop Activities explained

ghacks.net: With the release of KDE 4 a new feature was added that, at first, seemed to be more confusing than anything else. Although the theory behind the idea was simple, the execution made the idea overly complex. The idea was this:

linuxuser.co.uk: Linux’s path to mainstream acceptance owes a lot to KDE and GNOME. While both have contributed enormously towards the ultimate Linux dream, they’re also heated competitors. Who will win the war?

Leftovers: KDE

  • Kubuntu Wily Alpha 2
    The Second Alpha of Wily (to become 15.10) has now been released!
  • Plasma Mobile References Images by Kubuntu
    We launched Plasma Mobile at KDE’s Akademy conference, a free, open and community made mobile platform.
  • The Sun Sets on KDE-Solaris
    The KDE-Solaris site has been shuttered. The subdomain now redirects to KDE techbase, which documents the last efforts related to KDE on then-OpenSolaris. From the year 2000 or earlier until 2013, you could run KDE — two, three or four — on Solaris, either SPARC or (later) x86. I remember doing packaging for my university, way back when, on a Sun Enterprise 10000 with some ridiculous amount of memory — maybe 24GB, which was ridiculous for that time. This led — together with some guy somewhere who had a DEC Alpha — to the first 64-bitness patches in KDE. Solaris gave way to OpenSolaris, and Stefan Teleman rebooted the packaging efforts in cooperation with Sun, using the Sun Studio compiler. This led to a lot of work in the KDE codebase in fixing up gcc-isms. I’d like to think that that evened up the road a little for other non-gcc compilers later.
