  • KDE Applications 15.04.1 Available for Kubuntu 15.04

    Packages for the release of KDE Applications 15.04.1 are available for Kubuntu 15.04. You can get it from the Kubuntu Backports PPA.

  • Kubuntu 15.04 Gets KDE Applications 15.04.1, How to Install It
  • As I mentioned before my GSoC proposal titled Better Tooling for Baloo has been accepted.

  • GSoC 2015 with Marble

    One of the reasons why I choose KDE as my mentoring organization is that I already used their Plasma desktop for quite a while now, thus I'm a little familiar with KDE Applications, but the main reason is that my programming skills and knowledge was best matched with KDE's Marble project.

  • KDevelop – Checker framework

    So I got a slot for GSOC2015 to implement a “Checker framework” for KDevelop, therefore I have been and I will be working on it during the summer.

  • Getting started!

    My work this summer will revolve around offering OpenStreetMap( OSM ) support to Marble: this will involve offering the user a complete experience: from opening OSM files, to viewing and editing them, to finally exporting them in ".osm" files.

Leftovers: KDE Software

  • Interview with David Revoy

    I bought a tablet to start to paint digitally during this period. I didn’t know many things about software, so my first years of digital painting were made with Photoshop Elements (bundled with the tablet). With digital painting, I could experiment with many themes I could never have sold on canvas. Then I met online publishers interested in my digital art and started to work more and more as a digital painter with an official Photoshop licence, Corel Painter, etcetera. In 2003 I ended my career as a traditional painter when a client decided to buy my whole stock of canvas.

  • There and back again, an algorithm tale

    Implementing Qt data models is anything but fun. For that reason, I don’t blame anyone for writing a beginResetModel / endResetModel combo any time a more complex change has happened.

  • Google Summer of Code 2015 – Week One : The Joy Of The First Paycheck!

    What I have done till now is collect constellation artwork used in Stellarium, and complied a list of 3 stars for each constellation which would be used to position the constellation image in the sky map. I started coding and have written the ConstellationArt class declaration. Earlier I had included a Q_PROPERTY to make constellations fade in and out, but I was told that this would be difficult to achieve since KStars doesn’t use OpenGL. In any case, I think getting the constellations to display correctly in the sky is more important than making them fade. That could always be done at a later point of time.

  • Making Sense of the Kubuntu/Canonical Leadership Spat
  • Jonathan Riddell forced out of Kubuntu

    He has also stated his intent to leave the Ubuntu community. "I also wish to extend my personal apology to the Kubuntu community for keeping this private for as long as we did. Generally, I don’t believe such an approach is consistent with our values, but I supported keeping it private in the hope that it would be easier to achieve a mutually beneficial resolution of the situation privately. Now that it’s clear that is not going to happen, I (and others in the KC) could not in good faith keep this private."

  • Of course I support Jonathan

    I’m disappointed in the way the Ubuntu Community Council has handled this and I think the way they treated Jonathan is appalling, even taking into account that he could’ve communicated his grievances better. I’m also unconvinced that the Ubuntu Community Council is at all beneficial to the Ubuntu community in its current form. The way it is structured and reports to the SABDFL makes that it will always favour Canonical when there’s a conflict of interest. I brought this up with two different CC members last year who both provided shruggy answers in the vein of “Sorry, but we have a framework that’s set up on how we can work in here and there’s just so much we can do about it.” – they seem to fear the leadership too much to question it, and it’s a pity, because everyone makes mistakes.

  • Ubuntu Community Council Can't Track Down $143,000 Worth of Donations

    The Ubuntu Community Council has made a rather troublesome discovery regarding the accounting of $143,000 in donations. From the looks of it, no one knows how this money was spent.

Jonathan Riddell gets full support from the Kubuntu community

Ubuntu

By now, you’ve probably met the donate page on Ubuntu, the one you see when you go to download an Ubuntu ISO. This donation page has led to a schism between the Ubuntu Community Council and Jonathan Riddell, the ‘leader’ of the Kubuntu project. All stemming from a perceived lack of transparency regarding donations made to Canonical.
