a new way to build KDE applications

Hi,

in the screenshot you can see a different kpager than the one you know.

[image:1667]

So, what's different ?
This kpager is built from the same sources, but neither using autotools, nor unsermake, nor scons. It's built using cmake ( http://www.cmake.org ).

Breezy and its "crippled" konqueror

Last week I updated my notebook from Ubuntu Hoary to Breezy. I was very pleasantly suprised when I noticed that they decided to make the "Simple Browser" profile of konqueror the default profile.
I added it one and a half year ago to konqueror in cvs and now finally it seems people start using it :-)

fun with compiling kdelibs...

Hi,

as I mentioned previously, I'm trying to build kdelibs (still 3.5, not 4.0 yet) using cmake.

To make it short, yesterday it managed to get to build kwallet, where I discovered that I missed to insert a check for sys/types.h. So I inserted the check, and then could watch how the box started to recompile almost complete kdelibs (since config.h changed which is included in a lot of files).

As time goes by...

As time goes by KDE distributors come and go.
It seems in the meantime I'm one of the more long-time contributors, I got my cvs account late 1999 I think (with low but quite constant activity...).
Thanks go to David Faure, without him I probably wouldn't be around here today ! :-)

Back from Paris, nothing about my niece, and some words about konqueror

Hi all,

so now I'm back from Paris, now already almost for two weeks, where I visited the finale of the Tour de France this year.
It was a great experience :-)

Ulle had a great day during the time trial and managed to get on the third place overall. Even if Rasmussen wouldn't have had the problems he had, we wouldn't have been able to defend his third place. This weekend is TEAG Hainleite where I'll see them all again :-)

LinuxTag 2005

I'm a bit late, but I also want to share some of my impressions from LinuxTag last week.
As always it was fun. It's always nice to meet with other OSS developers, be it gnomes, X devs, the mplayer guys and of course, our KDE fellows :-)

A big thanks goes to the people who organized our KDE booth, so especially to Joseph Spillner this year. We had four nice boxes there, two running SUSE, and two running kUbuntu, both very nice although quite different distributions.

KDE trick: ioslaves and gmx

Hi,

maybe you know it already, but I just learned it last week from Carsten at LinuxTag: if you have an email account at gmx, enter "webdav://mediacenter.gmx.net" in konqueror (or any other KDE application), and you get access to the mediacenter area of gmx. IOW one gigabyte storage available for free at your fingertips, thanks to the marvellous KDE ioslave architecture as comfortable to use as your local harddisk :-)

C vs. C++ for embedded development

There is the myth that using C++ per se makes applications and libraries slow and bloated. Avoiding bloat is of special importance for embedded devices, which usually have limited amounts of CPU power and memory.
On www.linuxdevices.com I found a short article on this topic: C vs. C++ on Embedded Devices.
Let's get down to the statements being made there:

My first blog: playing with kUbuntu, FreeBSD and others

So finally I'll also try to start blogging since nowadays everybody seems to do so. So, most importantly, the sun is shining today here. Nice wheather make me feel good :-)
On the more KDE related side of things, now I also tried the famous kUbuntu distro. Since 1997 I'm Slackware user. I tried Suse, it's nice, polished, but feels quite slow and hides too much from the user (for my taste). Some years ago I tried Debian and was lost in dselect. RedHat sucked in 1998, Mandrake didn't seem to be really stable in 2000. So, I always had Slackware running on all my boxes.
