Leftovers: KDE Software

  • Let’s take a look to Kde Plasma 5.3 beta
    A couple of days ago I spoke about the new release of the Kde Applications 15.04 which represents a great and important step towards the completion of the passage from the old Kde 4 to the new Plasma 5 environment.
  • Dusting KMouth
    Besides gardening lately (more on that next time) lately I've been looking into what needs and used to use KSpeech/KTTS/Jovie. As QtSpeech will replace the functionality Jovie provided I thought I'd look at what needs doing to get stuff using QtSpeech.
  • My experiences at conf.kde.in 2015
    Last year I really wanted to attend conf.kde.in but couldn’t because my train tickets were not confirmed by the time it started. So, I had made up my mind right then, that I will definitely attend it the next year by all means. So, this year I applied and was accepted as a speaker too. But tragedy struck again, when some college issues clashed with the date of my flight, so I had to reschedule it once, and then one more time due to one more clash, after which I could finally reach Amritapuri in the evening of Day 1 of conference when it was already over. So, yes I was sad as I had missed the first day, but that also meant that I should make the best of the second day for sure.
  • conf.kde.in ’15 – My views
    This year’s conf.kde.in – KDE India’s annual conference on KDE/Qt technologies, was hosted in Amrita University’s Amritapuri campus and it still feels kinda surreal indeed. Thankfully, it all unfolded well enough. It was the first time a KDE conference was being hosted in Southern India or at least in Kerala to the best of my knowledge. I think one of the main reasons for this to happen was my experience with the previous edition of the same conference, which was held in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Back then, I had just started to contribute to KDE and was very keen on attending the conference. However, it’d take me at least 5 days to travel back and forth and attend the conference – something which seemed improbable, if not possible given the schedule of classes any engineering student would have. It was also back then that I’d met Pradeepto Bhattacharya, Founder of KDE-India and had an informal chat and it motivated me to try contributing to KDE. He also wanted to see me attend the conference in Gujarat. However, I was unable to, despite wanting to.
  • Use Geofix to Geotag Photos in digiKam
  • Cross Platformity
    Several years ago we started porting Calligra to Windows. Supported by NLNet. Some time later, Intel also supported KO to create two Windows versions of Krita, one for tablets, one for convertible ultrabooks and later still, a new version of Calligra Words, Stage and Sheets for convertible ultrabooks. Meanwhile, the Krita Foundation has been publishing Krita on Windows and OSX for some time now. That's a fair amount of experience in puslishing software originally written on Linux on other platforms.
