  • How I solved a digiKam panorama hiccup

    I've come across a stumble in digiKam panorama creation, but also found a way around it, too.

  • Kubuntu 15.10 Beta 2
  • Get your Kubuntu Wily (to become 15.10) Beta 2
  • libssh is running in the Matrix now

    With all of this implemented and new releases of the wrappers, which I’m preparing at the moment, all you have to do is to install cmocka, socket_wrapper, nss_wrapper and uid_wrapper and run ‘make test’. The Matrix will be created and libssh tested. You can find the cwrap libssh branch here.

    There is one test for a feature missing right now. We do not test keyboard-interactive authentication, but the cwrap project is working on a new wrapper to fix this. Stay tuned!

  • KDE: Kubuntu: #Akademy and #Randa oh my!

    Kubuntu Day landed on the same day as my BoF sadly so I did not get to attend much of that. I was able to attend the BoF with Munich and a lot was accomplished in regards to upstream KDE working closer with the Munich team. Overall Akademy was extremely successful in catching up with everyone and working with them in person.

  • Vote in the Kiki Drawing Challenge Contest
  • Done Porting!

    Technically, we're done porting Krita to Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5...

  • Why I love Plasma

    I’ll first say that this blog post very one sided towards KDE but I do like and love the work that every developer does for Desktop Environments like GNOME Shell, Unity, elementary’s Pantheon Shell and even Linux Mint’s Cinnamon. While I might get some names and descriptions wrong please do correct me.

  • KDE FreeBSD in my KDE FreeBSD

    This post carries on a bit about the way I build and test packages for FreeBSD. I only have one desktop machine, running FreeBSD amd64, and it needs to function as a desktop even while building and testing packages. Elsewhere, things like Project Neon and the OpenSUSE build service do something similar, on a much larger scale: building packages from various stages of development and delivering them to users. Here, though, I’m concentrating on end-to-end ports and packages testing for FreeBSD for a single computer and user.

  • Half-Left is back

    Since then, we got a great Visual Design Team, and we got an awesome default theme (and its dark version).

    But, two themes are not enough. People have different tastes.

    Now, Sean is back in the Plasma world.

  • Bugs fixed in Ark 15.08.1
  • Breeze is finished

    Talking about Kubuntu, Arch Linux, OpenSuse, …. Questions where I can find the Plasma Widgets, UI Session about Kmail, Plasma, Kdenlive … . Where Plasma Mobile should go, how the user should navigate through Plasma and the phone applications. Starting improvements for plasma. Talking how the VDG can improve the workflow between designers and development. Writing bug reports, fixing bugs. Make code changes, discuss it on reviewboard. Talk to the devs to fix some UI stuff. Go hiking and don’t stop talking about Plasma and KDE. That was Randa for me. It was amazing.

  • digiKam Recipes 4.9.1 Released
  • 184 Qt Libraries

    We have collected 184 third party Qt libraries on Inqlude now. This is a pretty complete map of the Qt ecosystem, quite an impressive number, and lots of useful libraries extending Qt for many purposes.

  • Vector Tiling in Marble Maps @Randa

    ...me and 50 other KDE developers met in the Swiss Alps for a week of hacking.

KDE Is Making Progress On Android Port

Filed under
Development
KDE

KDE developers at Randa have made some progress on working to port KDE applications and libraries to Android.

KDE developers have been working on porting of KDE on Android infrastructure. They're working on a simple and easy to use build environment for this process, make development easy for new contributors, and are seeing what KDE Frameworks 5 libraries can be made available for Android.

Progress of KDE on Android Infrastructure

Filed under
Android
KDE

We have 2015 and Android is a very important platform for (mobile) applications and developers. — This somehow could also have been written a year ago, and actually it was stated then by several people. Those people also started porting some first applications from the KDE/Linux world to the Android platform. Yet, when looking at what happened the last year, as of now, we only have KAlgebra, GCompris and (since recent) Marble Maps that are available on Android.

  • Kdenlive at Randa meetings - first report

    We arrived here on wednesday, and started discussions about our plans in the train. Here is a short resume of what happened during these first days:

    We decided to work on bug tracking during the first day, since the Kdenlive 15.08.1 release was imminent. We fixed quite a few bugs that will improve stability of the 15.08 branch.

  • Password visibility in KPasswordDialog

    With the upcoming 5.14 release of the KDE Frameworks, KPasswordDialog gets the ability to change the visibility of the password being typed by the user. This is a common and useful feature, especially when the password is hard to type and error prone. Screenshots follow:

  • Randa Report - unEyeCandy

    The Randa Meetings are happening now in the Swiss Alps. More than 50 people are giving their time to improve KDE software and innovate new value for users. The theme of this sixth edition of the Randa Meetings is Bring Touch to KDE, and the KDE Visual Design Group (VDG) is making their contributions to the look and feel of KDE technology. Visual appearance has been a primary consideration for KDE from the beginning—"users [should be able to] expect things to look, feel, and work consistently".

Google’s Fuchsia OS on the Pixelbook: It works! It actually works!

Google currently has two OSes on the market: Android and Chrome OS. The company is never one to leave a successful product alone in the marketplace, though, so it's also developing a third operating system called "Fuchsia." When we last checked in on the experimental OS in May 2017, calling it an "OS" was a bit of a stretch. We only got the system UI up and running on top of Android, where it then functioned like an app. The UI offered a neat multi-window system, but mostly it was just a bunch of placeholder graphics. Nothing worked. It has been hard to check in on Fuchsia since. The Fuchsia system UI, which was written with a cross-platform SDK called "Flutter," quickly shut down the Android (and iOS) compatible builds. Fuchsia has a Vulkan-based graphics stack, and no emulator supports the new-ish graphics API. The only way to get Fuchsia up and running again was with actual hardware, and the only supported devices were Intel NUC PCs from 2015 and the Acer Switch Alpha 12 laptop. Read more

Software: MenuLibre, Speech Recognition, "Just TODO It", Slack

  • MenuLibre 2.1.4 Released
    The wait is over. MenuLibre 2.1.4 is now available for public testing and translations! With well over 100 commits, numerous bug fixes, and a lot of polish, the best menu editing solution for Linux is ready for primetime.
  • Speech Recognition For Linux Gets A Little Closer
    t has become commonplace to yell out commands to a little box and have it answer you. However, voice input for the desktop has never really gone mainstream. This is particularly slow for Linux users whose options are shockingly limited, although decent speech support is baked into recent versions of Windows and OS X Yosemite and beyond. There are four well-known open speech recognition engines: CMU Sphinx, Julius, Kaldi, and the recent release of Mozilla’s DeepSpeech (part of their Common Voice initiative). The trick for Linux users is successfully setting them up and using them in applications. [Michael Sheldon] aims to fix that — at least for DeepSpeech. He’s created an IBus plugin that lets DeepSpeech work with nearly any X application. He’s also provided PPAs that should make it easy to install for Ubuntu or related distributions.
  • Announcing "Just TODO It"
    Recently, I wished to use a trivially-simple TODO-list application whilst working on a project. I had a look through what was available to me in the "GNOME Software" application and was surprised to find nothing suitable. In particular I just wanted to capture a list of actions that I could tick off; I didn't want anything more sophisticated than that (and indeed, more sophistication would mean a learning curve I couldn't afford at the time). I then remembered that I'd written one myself, twelve years ago. So I found the old code, dusted it off, made some small adjustments so it would work on modern systems and published it.
  • Linux users can now get Slack as a snap package
    Canonical has announced the general availability of the collaboration platform Slack, as a snap package. The move will allow Linux users to get setup with the platform and begin collaborating on their work more easily. Any Linux distribution with snap support can head over to the snapcraft website, download the package, and begin using it.
