India

  • Back from conf.kde.in 2016
  • conf.kde.in 2016

    This year's conf.kde.in was organised in Jaipur. I was super excited to be part of KDE India and conf.kde.in for the first time. I was taken back by the preparations that volunteers had done. I really want to take some moment to put forward my thanks to the whole LNMIIT team for such a great welcome and hospitality. Special thanks to "Sagar Chand Agarwal" who made his whole effort in making the conference a success.
    I took a lot from various speakers, each of them was a pioneer in what they were doing. It was an exceptional experience for me. The best part was the development sprints where we taught students on how they can build their first own Qt applications. Students showed keen interests and asked many questions, we tried our best to help them and solve as many problems as we could in the small time span we were given.
    Those two days gave me an experience of a lifetime of many speakers. I want to specially mention to "Pradeepto", at first seeing his reply on emails made me curious to meet him in person. But my perception towards changed him when I met him personally, I got to know that he was the creator of KDE India, Season of KDE and conf.kde.in, and he shared his own experience of his journey in details. We even sat on the grass to listen to his experience and felt it should never end, that was his charisma which I guess attracted almost every person who attended conf.kde.in.

Kubuntu

  • A Big Blue Button

    We had a really amazing turn out to the Kubuntu Packaging Party, and we had lots of Fun !

    We quickly realised that the number of people, had blown past the limits of some of the channels set up for folks to join the party. Despite a valiant effort by Ovidiu-florin BOGDAN and the KDE Sprint team in the Bus at CERN Labs who joined the Google+ Hangout via one device.

  • Kubuntu Party 2

    Friday 15th April 20:00 UTC, we will !be dressing up in party frocks and pressing the “Big Blue Button” to teleport into (K)Ubuntu party land. I have deliberately broken out the K, to directly express our intent that the Kubuntu community team welcome and indeed, openly invite the Ubuntu community to come along and join us.

Krita

  • Krita Interview with Anne Derenne

    I work in political/editorial cartoon but also in children’s book illustration. They are 2 different genres, but I like changing from time to time what kind of topics I’m working on. According to my mood I will spend more time in one or another genre.I like to denounce with my cartoons, but sometimes it is also good to put some poetry in this complicated world and the children illustrations help me to focus in something more positive.

  • Krita 3.0 Pre-alpha 3 is out!
  • First Krita Book in French!

    if you have a Windows Phone (e.g. Lumia or similar), then please help us on MTP & Windows Phones so we can find the correct patch to make these devices work in the kio-mtp io slave.

  • #18: SoK with PMC – 4
  • Germany’s next Suspend Modes

    Bereitschaft is a great contender on that front but at least for my ears does sound like the fearful state of a worker sitting at home on Saturday, carefully nipping his beer, hoping his boss won’t call him in. If more desktops would call it Bereitschaft, I would vote for it in KDE too because I like consistency, but in this “everyone on its own” state of affairs, I prefer Standby. And we use the dashed version of Standby-Modus because we prefer to separate foreign words from native words. It’s a matter of taste and the transition from “foreign” to “native” is blurry but the German KDE team once decided to go the “dashed” way for all but two or three words.

Security News

  • Report: Linux security must be upgraded to protect future tech
    The summit was used to expose a number of flaws in Linux's design that make it increasingly unsuitable to power modern devices. Linux is the operating system that runs most of the modern world. It is behind everything from web servers and supercomputers to mobile phones. Increasingly, it's also being used to run connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including products like cars and intelligent robots.
  • security things in Linux v4.6
    Hector Marco-Gisbert removed a long-standing limitation to mmap ASLR on 32-bit x86, where setting an unlimited stack (e.g. “ulimit -s unlimited“) would turn off mmap ASLR (which provided a way to bypass ASLR when executing setuid processes). Given that ASLR entropy can now be controlled directly (see the v4.5 post), and that the cases where this created an actual problem are very rare, means that if a system sees collisions between unlimited stack and mmap ASLR, they can just adjust the 32-bit ASLR entropy instead.
