Leftovers: KDE

TuxMachines - Sun, 2016-05-29 09:54
  • Plasma Wayland ISO Checkup

    My Plasma Wayland ISOs are building nicely fresh each day. I asked Betty the fuzzy Guinea Pig to gave one a try today and there’s still obvious bugs like no text on task bar and the blue window bars are back but she’s generally impressed at how this is likely to be a good replacement for X in the near future.

  • Call for new KStars splash screen

    KStars gained two seats for Google Summer of Code 2016. The first project is to develop KStars Lite, a small footprint KStars aimed for tablet/mobile and low powered devices. The second project is to port KStars to Windows, including migration of INDI Client library and Ekos. Both projects are progressing along quite nicely and we expect to see stellar results by the end of the summer.

  • KDAB Training Day at QtCon
  • Faster than Fast String Search in Qt
  • Very explicit operator bool
  • Kdenlive: features and next Cafés

    Our monthly Kdenlive Cafés (*) really helped us focusing the development on some awesome features. We now have a small team of really involved people that help us evolve towards the best free open source video editor for professionnals.

  • KDev-Embedded, The alpha version is coming !

    Today one of the most important steps was performed, the first upload to a microController. The code was a blink compiled with a makefile and uploaded with the KDev-Embedded plugin to an AVR microController (Arduino Nano board).

  • Verdigris: Qt without moc

    Verdigris is a header-only library that can be used with Qt. It uses macros to create a QMetaObject that is binary compatible with Qt's own QMetaObject without requiring moc. In other words, you can use Verdigris macros in your Qt or QML application instead of some of the Qt macros and then you do not need to run moc.

  • Some plans do not cooperate with you…

    I reached the creator at the IRC channel of KDE to see if he could help me, and Jonathan Riddel gives me the help that I need it, at the selection of bugs that I could work and others things that I was thinking about Umbrello. After two days, one before the end of submission time, I submitted my project to the KDE Community.

  • Coding at Lakademy

    Today is the third day that Lakademy is happening at Federal University of State of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO), and since the first hour, I’m doing a lot of code. The work is concentrate on my GSoC Project, and finally getting on track on my work in Umbrello.

  • if (LaKademy 2016) goto Rio de Janeiro

    Rio de Janeiro, the “Cidade Maravilhosa”, land of the eternal Summer. The sunlight here is always clear and hot, the sea is refreshing, the sand is comfortable. The people is happy, Rio de Janeiro has good music, food, the craziest parties of the world, and beautiful bodies having fun with beach games (do you know futevolei?).

  • Breeze Dark Color Scheme

    Just as quick info, with the next KDE Frameworks 5 release, namely KF5 version 5.23, the KTextEditor framework gains a Breeze Dark color scheme. The colors mostly stick to the Breeze color palette, with some minor changes, since KTextEditor needs more colors the the color palette itself ships. To use this color scheme, go to the config dialog and choose “Breeze Dark” in the Fonts & Colors config page. We hope this is useful – mandatory screenshot:

  • kmail 16.04.1 and Novell Groupwise 2014 IMAP server - anyone?
  • Yet Another GSoC Blog

    TL;DR: Well Hey there, Chantara here. I will be working with 2 awesome mentors, Stikonas and teo-, to add LVM and hopefully RAID support for KDE Partition Manager and KPMCore library over my summer with Google Summer of Code. If you’re interested, read on!!!

  • KDE Partition Manager 2.2.0

    KDE Partition Manager and KPMcore 2.2.0 are now released with a proper LUKS support! This is a fairly big feature release but it also got tested more than usual, so a lot of bugs were fixed (including some crashes). Unfortunately there is still one more reproducible crash (bug 363294) on exit when file open/save dialogs are used (and very similar crashes actually exist in some other KDE programs, e.g. kdebugdialog or Marble). If anybody has any idea how to fix it I would be grateful.

  • Hello KDE

  • Interview with Neotheta
  • The work on animation features continues

    While the first stable Krita version with animation is just around the corner, I am already rolling up my sleeves with plans to take the feature to the next level. It's Google Summer of Code time again.

    A lot has happened since last year. Import for image sequences was added, the timeline docker was reworked and a large number of smaller changes and fixes were implemented to make the animation tools ready for inclusion in Krita 3.0. For a nice overview, check out GDQuest's video tutorial.

  • Free Software Artists and their Tools — Part I: David Revoy & Krita

    The idea that Free Software has no decent design programs, and that it is impossible to produce quality art without proprietary apps is one of those myths that refuses to die. For quite some time now, OCSmag has been on a mission to prove otherwise. In this latest series we talk to three artists who use Free Software tools to produce their works.

  • Krita at KomMissia

    Last weekend, ace Krita hacker Dmitry Kazakov attended KomMissia, the annual Russian comics festival. Best quote award goes to the Wacom booth attendants, who install Krita on all their demo machines because “too many people keep asking about it”!

  • KStars on Windows – Alpha version

    Using emerge tool, I started to build KStars on Windows. Since this process could be very troublesome, I used a Windows 7 32-bit virtual machine. Actually, for building KDE sources, the KDE developers recommend the 32-bit version of Windows 7.

Kubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus - Not meant to be

TuxMachines - Sun, 2016-05-29 05:35

There's one thing that is consistent with the Xenial family of spring disappointments. The disappointment. When one goes bad, you know they all do, and in this regard, Ubuntu LTS delivers badly across its entire range. 16.04 was meant to be sweet hope, salvation and joy, it is just a string of rushed, badly QA-ed images.

Kubuntu Xerus does not have any redeeming factors. It's pretty all right, but it's buggy, Samba support is weak, smartphone support is sub-par, package management is atrocious, battery life is just average but still much worse than the spectacularly useless Werewolf release, and there are lots of other small problems everywhere. Nothing about this particular edition oozes confidence, quality or long-term vision. Really sad. 2/10. My weekend has been ruined again, thank you. Don't bother. Bye.

Gentoo Linux 20160514 Screenshot Tour

LXer - Sun, 2016-05-29 05:28
Gentoo Linux is proud to announce the availability of a new live DVD, code-named 'Choice Edition', to celebrate the continued collaboration between Gentoo users and developers. The live DVD is available in two flavors - a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and an x86_64 multilib version. The x86-amd64-32ul ISO image will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64. If CPU architecture is x86, then boot with the default 'gentoo' kernel. If the architectures is amd64, boot with the 'gentoo64' kernel. The amd64-multilib ISO image is for x86_64 CPUs only and will not boot on x86 CPUs. The live DVD features a superb list of packages: Linux kernel 4.5, X.Org Server 1.18.3, Plasma 5.6.2, Firefox 45.0.1, LibreOffice 5.1.2, GIMP 2.9.2, Blender 2.72b, Chromium 50.0.2661.75.

Why are some extremely basic things broken in Linux?

Reddit - Sun, 2016-05-29 05:22

When I put Ubuntu 16.04 with Cinnamon on my laptop, the battery meter in the tray did not update. It worked in Xfce, but now I booted without the battery inserted and it shows a battery icon where the graph would be, and "50%%". (Yes, that is two % signs, the percentage is meaningless as there is no battery.) There's no tooltip to explain what's going on.

Stuff like this irritated me in the past, and made me think Linux sucks. I'm more open minded about this now, but still, it doesn't look good. The fast ring insider preview of Windows 10 is less broken than the current supposedly stable LTS release of Ubuntu.

Looking for Linux Desktop

Reddit - Sun, 2016-05-29 05:19

I don't like asking mainly subjective questions, but I'm looking for a nice desktop. The main thing that I dislike about most Desktops is that they're mostly silver. I don't like light themes. But, being the noob that I am, I don't know what to do to change them. So, which desktop would you suggest?

Linux gaming question

Reddit - Sun, 2016-05-29 03:47

I'm kinda pissed off at Windows over the whole update to 10 thing and was wanting to make my pc dual boot Linux and Windows (so I don't lose anything). I looked over a few reviews, and it seems like (performance wise at least) Windows beats out Linux almost entirely. Is this true? Even with SteamOS and Ubuntu?
