Calligra on Android

Thursday, 12 January 2012
As most of you are probably well aware, since quite a while it is not very hard to write Qt applications to run on Android devices. A couple of weeks ago we at KO GmbH decided to look into how hard it would be to get KDE applications to run, and more specifically, if it would be possible to run Calligra with one of its mobile UI's on an android device.

Thursday, 23 July 2009
After spending an extra week after GCDS hiking around on La Gomera (another one of the Canarian islands), I finally got home and had time to process some of the photos I took during the desktop summit, so you can go ahead and take a look at them in my gcds gallery on my smugmug page (so if anyone needs a smugmug referral code you can also ping me).

Having fun with qemu

Wednesday, 10 September 2008
Until now I've always been using my own built Qt packages when building KDE packages for maemo. Initially because the Qt packages in extras-devel where missing some vital parts for KDE (mainly SSL support I think) but after that because I just had them installed, and it worked. Read More

KOffice on Maemo

Thursday, 4 September 2008
As KOffice is supposed to be a lightweight office suite, I figured it would be nice to see how well it would run on maemo based devices. Thanks to Thomas Zander who replaced a lot of the double usage in koffice with qreals it was quite straightforward to get koffice to compile and packaged. Read More

Saturday, 5 July 2008
As a next step in my SoC project this week I've worked on getting Plasma to run on a maemo based device. Getting KDE compiled for this platform provided some new challenges, mainly caused by the old compiler used by its SDK (gcc 3. Read More

Context menus with just a touchscreen

Sunday, 29 June 2008
An issue I encountered while running plasma on my Neo1973 is the lack of a right mouse button (the screen can't really distinguish between ends of the stylus/which finger I use). Read More

KDE with high DPI

Sunday, 29 June 2008
As I mentioned in my previous blog entry, I'm working on making KDE and plasma behave better on systems that are quite different from 'normal' computers, specificaly small devices. As currently the only physical device I have access to for this project is a Neo1973 Openmoko phone, most of my initial work will be for that device. Read More
