Task managers on mobile: daydreaming about new possible approaches

Filed under
KDE

With my previous post about killing the back button I got a some scepticism about it from some users, but what was common in all those feedbacks was the approach to manage different apps: yes killing the back button breaks some things, but I wrote it mainly to introduce the real idea: new approaches to task managing on mobile devices.

Arch Linux Is Dropping The KDE 4 Desktop

Filed under
KDE
Linux

Arch Linux developers have begun phasing out the KDE 4 desktop and automatically upgrading users to KDE Plasma 5.

With the KDE 4 stack effectively being unmaintained now and the newly-released Plasma 5.5 being in good shape stability wise, Arch packagers are dropping Plasma 4 and related KDE 4 code. They recommend any remaining KDE 4 users to upgrade as soon as possible or switch to a maintained desktop.

Moreover, it addresses a single Kexi issue, and adds great improvements to the Krita 2.9.10 software, for which we already published a separate article the other day.

  • KDE Plasma 5.5 Extended Review: New Features and Improvements

    KDE – desktop environment written in C++/Qt/QML and better for users which need more and love the powerful instruments. KDE can help you in everyday tasks like work with web, multimedia (photo, video, music), text and specific tasks: programming, video editing, education, games and many others. Many peoples say that KDE is very good for users with Windows experience, but I’m not sure. I highly recommend to try KDE: this desktop environment can give you many positive emotions.

  • Plasma 5.5 With Beautiful New Artwork

    Tuesday, 8 December 2015. Today KDE releases a feature update to its desktop software, Plasma 5.5.

A closer look to Ark 15.12

Filed under
KDE

Ark 15.08 was the first Ark release after the port to KF5, so there wasn’t much room for new features.
With the upcoming 15.12 release the situation is quite different, as there are a significant number of changes that are worth of a blog post.

  • KDE Plasma 5.5 Officially Released
  • Kdenlive Café #1 and #2 - Date selections

    We would like to try something new for the Kdenlive community: Kdenlive Cafés. These are one to two hour informal meetings on irc.freenode.net in channel #kdenlive. We might select certain topics for these Cafés but normally you can just chat about recent things in Kdenlive development, ask questions to developers and other users and talk about the progress of this great and free non-linear video editor.

  • Br-Print3D: Almost there…

    Today I will share with you a little bit more about the changes that Br-Print3D suffered these days…

    After I learned more about the VTK features, I was able to make the prism to visualize the 3D models.

  • Randa Meetings 2015 - Huge Success Again

    Every meeting tends to start with the arrival of the participants, as did the Randa Meetings. Most people arrived by airplane, so either at the Geneva or Zurich airport, both of which are basically at the other ends of Switzerland. But fortunately Switzerland is a small country, so taking the train to Randa only took a couple of hours. Friendly helpers were at the airports to greet people and hand them out a day ticket, which allowed them to use most of the public transports in Switzerland without additional fees. The journey up to Randa is quite an interesting one, as from Visp on it is a rather steep trail up the mountains. As the region is also frequently visited by tourists, the trains have been built with that in mind, so people were able to enjoy a scenic panorama view.

KDE Development Updates

  • Revisiting my talk at FOSSASIA summit, 2018
    Earlier this year, I had the chance to speak about one of KDE community’s cool projects that is helpding developers erase the line between desktop and mobile/tablet UI’s with ease. I’m referring to the Kirigami UI framework – a set of QtQuick components targetted at the mobile as well as desktop platforms. This is particularly important to KDE and a lot of projects are now migrating towards a Kirigami UI, particularly keeping in mind the ability to run the applications on the Plasma Mobile.
  • This Week in KDE, Part 2 : OYLG, Workspace KCM, Single/Double Click
    Last weekend, I went to İstanbul to attend Özgür Yazılım ve Linux Günleri (Free Software and Linux Days 2018) to represent LibreOffice. We had 3 presentations during the event about LibreOffice Development and The Open Document Format. We had booth setup with stickers, flyers, roll-up etc. These were all thanks to The Document Foundation’s supports! You can find detailed information about the event from here : https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Events/2018/OYLG2018
  • Watching the Detectives
    For instance, Kevin Ottens has been writing about understanding the KDE community by the “green blobs” method, showing who is active when. Lays Rodrigues has written about using Gource to show Plasma growing up. Nate Graham describes the goings-on in the KDE community nearly every week. Those are, roughly: a metric-, a visual-, and a story-based approach to understanding the community, over different timescales. But understanding of a system doesn’t come from a single dimension, from a single axis of measurement. It comes from mixing up the different views to look the system as a whole.
  • Managing cooking recipes
    I like to cook. And sometimes store my recipes. Over the years I have tried KRecipes, kept my recipes in BasKet notes, in KJots notes, in more or less random word processor documents. I liked the free form entering recipes in various notes applications and word processor documents, but I lacked some kind of indexing them. What I wanted was free-ish text for writing recipes, and some thing that could help me find them by tags I give them. By Title. By how I organize them. And maybe by Ingredient if I don’t know how to get rid of the soon-to-be-bad in my refridgerator.

Phones: Purism, "Jolla Users", De-Googling Android Phones

  • Last Call for Librem 5 Dev Kit: order yours before June 1st 2018
    Purism has finalized the specifications for the Librem 5 development kit and will be placing all the component parts order and fabrication run the first week of June 2018. If you want to have early access to the hardware that will serve as the platform for the Librem 5 phone, you must place your dev kit order before June 1st, 2018. The price for the development kit is now $399, up from the early-bird pricing that was in effect during the campaign and until today. The dev kit is a small batch, “limited edition” product. After this batch, we are not planning for a second run (as the production of the phone itself will replace the dev kit in 2019).
  • Top 3 mobile phones
    When purchasing a new mobile phone, there are hundreds of models to choose from and, there are dozens of “excellent” or top-rated brands to consider. Therefore, it can be difficult to know what you are getting. Buying the phone upfront, on contract or buying a smartphone on finance are all options that need to be considered too. If you are ready to invest in a new smartphone consider these three models. Galaxy S9 Plus. This phone by Samsung is sleek, elegant, has a vibrant screen, resolution and excellent fingerprint scanner. The curved edges give it a distinct look and style. It is the Plus model, so has a huge touchscreen which is extremely intuitive. Quality speakers, outdoor body/casing and internal functionality make it a top-choice for a new smartphone.
  • De-Googling my phone, reloaded
    In this area the situation is now much happier than my first post indicated. As promised I used trainline.eu for booking some tickets (both for Deutsche Bahn and also on Thalys), and indeed this does a fine job. Same price, European rebate cards like BahnCard 50 are supported, and being able to book with a lot of European train services with just one provider is really neat. However, I’m missing a lot of DB navigator’s great features: realtime information and alternatives, seat selection, car position indicator, regional tariffs, or things like “Länderticket”. Fortunately it turns out that DB Navigator works just great with a trick: Disable the “Karte anzeigen” option in the menu, and it will immediately stop complaining about missing Play Services after each action. Also, logging in with your DB account never finishes, but after terminating and restarting the app you are logged in and everything works fine. That might be a “regular” bug or just a side effect without Play Services.
