  • Too much of a good thing

    Then, since April, Krita-wise, there was the Kickstarter, the kick-off for the artbook, the Krita 3.0 release... The 3.0 release doubled the flow of bugs, donations, comments, mails to the foundation, questions on irc, reddit, forum and everywhere else. (There's this guy who has sent me over fifty mails asking for Krita to be released for Windows XP, OSX 10.5 and Ubuntu 12.02, for example). And Google Summer of Code kicked off, with three students working on Krita.

  • No 3.0.1 Release This Week

    The Krita release process still depends completely on one person making the Windows, Linux and OSX builds — me, Boudewijn. And I’ve been out of action for a week and a half now, so I couldn’t make those builds. Since I need some more time to recover and pick up all the threads and todo’s, we decided to move to a new release schedule, skipping the planned 3.0.1 release.

HowTos

The airy aesthetics have won Plasma 5 an army of admirers, and helped to cement the new visual impression of the KDE desktop experience redux.

But what if you’re not using KDE? Well, you don’t have to miss out.

Multi-screen woes in Plasma 5.7

Filed under
KDE

With Plasma 5.7 we promised improved multi-screen support. While we achieved that, some users are still experiencing issues. This is unfortunate and our users have all the reasons to be disappointed with us. We are working very hard to fix the issues which have been reported to us since the release.

But there are many situations where users blame us for issues not under our control. With this blog post I want to describe some of the problems we got reported and explain them.

  • Discovering the Kube project

    From what I understand Kube is entirely developed with Qt, reuses some parts of Kontact, the standard KDE/Plasma groupware client relies on the next version of Akonadi (this data & authentification backend from KDE) while being truly multiplatform (Windows Linux, OSX, Android and iOS). You can give it an early try by following the instructions listed here.

  • New Alpha Version of Marble Maps for Android

    We have a new alpha release of Marble Maps in the Google Play store! It is available to registered alpha testers. We would like to gather feedback on the new turn-by-turn navigation mode before releasing a new public beta version in two weeks. See our release schedule for more details.

    Sanjiban and me worked a lot on polishing the turn-by-turn navigation mode lately. It can be activated after calculating a route. During turn-by-turn navigation the map follows your current position and upcoming turns are announced using text-to-speech

KDE Plasma – Ultimate Desktop Environment For Linux

Filed under
KDE

You never need to compromise on anything, when using a Linux desktop. That is the whole idea behind the innovative and advanced desktop environment for Linux. KDE is developed to be a free libre software and a plasma desktop environment to be run on Linux and Windows environments. The KDE community has went a long way to create a free environment for daily users to meet their regular computing needs, as well as providing the developers of the system with ultimate solutions to enhance and enrich the software to a great extent.

  • [Dolphin] Checksums made easy

    Adding checksums to the Dolphin’s Properties dialog is something that has been on my TODO list for a while. I always try to verify the integrity of what I manually download from the Internet (and you should too). Yet, tools such as md5sum, sha1sum and friends are annoying to use (though not as annoying as checking GPG signatures), even for those who are familiar with the command line.

  • What happened to Kate in Randa?

    This years topic for the Randa meeting, was multi-platform end-user application development. That was a golden opportunity to work on the Windows and Mac versions.

SUSE Leftovers

  • openSUSE Heroes meeting, day 2
    After a long, but exciting first day, we even managed to get some sleep before we started again and discussed the whole morning about our policies and other stuff that is now updated in the openSUSE wiki. After that, we went out for a nice lunch…
  • Installing Tumbleweed, November 2016
    The Tumbleweed system that I already have installed had desktops KDE, Gnome, XFCE and LXDE. But for recent intstalls (as with Leap 42.2), I have been going with KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXQt, FVWM and MATE. So it seemed reasonable for the new Tumbleweed install to follow the same path. I also added Enlightenment for experimenting.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
