New namespace for KDE apps maintained by upstream

July 19th, 2011 by

After some discussion in #opensuse-kde, darix has created the KDE:Apps namespace for KDE apps maintained by their upstream, so that they can serve fresh packages for all distributions supported by the Build Service (which includes openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise, Fedora, RHEL, Debian and Ubuntu).
As the first to join in, we warmly welcome the KMyMoney project!

Got questions? Feel free to contact the openSUSE/KDE Team on the mailing list opensuse-kde@opensuse.org or in IRC: #opensuse-kde (irc.freenode.net).

Busy Oktober

November 10th, 2010 by

Last month I went to the Ovi and KDE sprint, Qt Developer Days 2010 -both in Münich- and the openSUSE Conference 2010 in Nüremberg. It was a busy Oktober. (pictures below!)

The Ovi and KDE sprint took place at Nokia’s Münich office, where we discussed why integration between KDE and Ovi would be beneficial for both (better user experience, exposure to a large userbase). There I had the pleasure to meet lots of KDE people; Leinir, Frank Karlitschek, Chani, Myriam Schweingruber, Sascha Peilicke, Sivan Greenberg, Mark Kretschmann, Rune Jensen, Arjen Hiemstra, Jonathan, Dinesh, Krzysiek, Knut Yrvin…
After the Ovi sprint, the Qt Developer Days 2010 began. The training sessions took place the first day. Even though some exercises were skipped, I liked it. Days 2 and 3 were focused on showing how cool Qt is. I never thought QML could be that easy, powerful and straightforward. Besides all of the presentations, we also had dinner with the Trolls, played the “fact or crap” game and tried some Meego-powered devices. So yepp, I enjoyed it and I’m looking forward for the 2011 edition 🙂
BTW, /me was wearing an openSUSE t-shirt which made Martin Mohring approach me and talk to me. That way I met him.

As I said, I also attended the openSUSE Conference 2010. Dan’s connecting flight was the same as mine (what a coincidence) so we took the Zürich-Nüremberg flight together. The same day we had dinner at Barfüsser with other people who had arrived earlier. Raymond Wooninck (tittiatcoke) drove 400 km in total to join us for the dinner only! Perhaps next time he can stay for a bit longer.
I stayed at the conference hotel. Having the conference and the hotel at the same place was a great idea. The location itself wasn’t that good since it was in the outskirts of Nüremberg but hey you can’t have everything. The very first day I met more fellow contributors… many interesting conversation took place in the hallways, between talks which made me skip some presentations. Besides that, there were some interesting talks taking place at the same time, so I had to choose between one or the other. Frank and I organised a workshop, “the Open-PC case” which went well. There were many attendees interested in getting an Open-PC. I also had the chance to meet and talk with many people: Adrian Schröter and I talked about obs, Nuno Pinheiro showed me some of his Inkscape techinques, I talked with Bruno Friedmann about many things -KDE/Factory too, of course-, I discussed artwork stuff with Gnokii (S. Kemter), Nuno Pinheiro, Robert Lihm and Kai-Uwe Behrmann, testing Factory with Bernhard Wiedeman, how to improve the documentation’s visibility with the Documentation team (Frank, Thomas, Katja, Jürgen) KDE stuff with the KDE people (there were lots of them at the conference),… speaking of KDE stuff, Thomas Thym brought some KDE merchandising to sell. 🙂
BTW, Gnokii’s Movie Night was nice. I really liked the free movies he played; not just software has to be made free!
This time I didn’t have time to go for a stroll in the city. From what I saw (little), Nüremberg seems to be a quiet and nice place.
I have to say that it was a great experience, I really enjoyed it and that I’m looking forward for next year’s openSUSE Conference. So yes, it was a big success 😀

Thanks to all the people who made these events possible!

KDE bug triage report

September 12th, 2010 by

Last month there was a KDE bug triage (sorry for the late report) and we squashed 60 bugs 😀
Thanks to all the people who contributed in making the KDE experience a bit better, especially Stephen Dunn and Christian Trippe. 😉
Remember, this hasn’t finished here. Going through the bug reports always helps!

So, here’s the proof:

KDE Release Party in Madrid

August 15th, 2010 by

The other day I met afiestas in the tram. He had a KDE sticker on his laptop and I thought perhaps this guy is interested in the KDE bug squashing party we have organized… I talked to him about it and he told me that he was a KDE developer. Quite a surprise! So we’re going to celebrate the release of KDE SC 4.5.0 at Sigland (San Bernardo 118) next Saturday (21st) at 14:00. 😀

Workshop at Party Quijote

July 13th, 2010 by

Last weekend I went to Party Quijote, which is probably the biggest LAN party of Castile (Spain). It was organized by the regional government (Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha), local universities (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Universidad de Alcalá de Henares) and other institutions (Centro de excelencia de software libre de Castilla-La Mancha, Fundación Insula Barataria, Ayuntamiento de Azuqueca de Henares). Some of its sponsors were Cisco, Telefónica, Iberdrola and Caja Castilla-La Mancha. This year Party Quijote took place in the city of Azuqueca de Henares, which is very close to Guadalajara and Madrid. For more information, take a look at Party Quijote’s website

Anyways, I thought it was a great opportunity to promote openSUSE and KDE  in my region, so I organized a workshop: Crea tu propio Live CD (build your own Live CD). Yes, it was a LAN party but there were also Linux-related talks and workshops.

KDE icons for Apache

February 15th, 2010 by


I have been working on making Apache’s directory listings a bit more beautiful by creating a collection of KDE icons (Oxygen and Crystal). Apache’s default icons are a bit old and not that vivid. In fact, they were originally made for Mosaic. So, what I’ve done is handpicking some Crystal and Oxygen icons, making a few by combining two icons, modifying some Apache’s config files, writing the instructions and, finally, putting everything together. So, now we have apache2-icons-oxygen and apache2-icons-crystal.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Adrian Schröter and Peter Pöml for the help and feedback.

The rpm packages are available on my OBS home project:

Comments and suggestions are welcome!
