One Quickie for Every of My Favorite Planets

I created KDE4.x/ application directories in ftp://upload.kde.org's incoming/ directory. The first application it was used for was okular, an universal document viewer for KDE 4 based on KPDF, with a snapshot preview requiring the recent Krash release.

Kickoff Start Menu - Sneak Preview

As previously blogged, openSUSE 10.2 will have a redesigned KDE start menu created by the KDE and usability team at SUSE, after doing usability testing with other start menus. We now have a working prototype, code-named 'Kickoff' (started during world soccer championship, obviously), which is currently being tested with real users in the SUSE usability lab.

KDE "Krash" RPMs for SUSE Linux

The important warning first: this is only for developers and not openSUSE 10.2 stuff! KDE has released a first development snapshot of KDE4 and the KDE:KDE4 project in the openSUSE Build Service has RPMs of qt, kdelibs, kdepimlibs and kdebase for SUSE Linux 10.0 and up. These are raw RPMs of the compiled stuff, not integrated with the distribution at all (won't install to /usr, won't let you choose the session from kdm etc.).

Happy Birthday openSUSE!

openSUSE.org
Exactly one year ago Novell announced the openSUSE project to develop its Linux distribution, which is also the base for the Linux enterprise products, in an open way. I was one of the first to download Beta 1 of SUSE Linux 10.0, shortly after I switched the sides (btw there are several open jobs at SUSE in Germany).

"KDE 3.5.4 on SUSE Linux 10.1" for VMware Player

I have updated the KDE VMware virtual machine which I have been offering for some months now. It now contains the SUSE KDE 3.5.4 packages installed on a SUSE Linux 10.1 base. Additionally the by default installed applications are updated to their current versions in the openSUSE Build Service and KOffice 1.5.2 is added.

KDE:Playground; KOffice 1.6 Alpha

We have founded yet another KDE project over at the openSUSE Build Service. It's called KDE:Playground (SUSE Linux 10.1 repo view). Its purpose? To allow the SUSE developers to test development versions like the current Beta releases of Amarok, Basket, Digikam and Gwenview.

After the schedule some days ago now also the abstracts for this year's upcoming KDE Contributors Conference are online. Let me point to the talks of my SUSE colleagues about Network Status Support in KDE and How to Use It and our team project Kickoff - Start Menu Research on which we spend much time during this too hot summer.

SUSE Linux becomes openSUSE

The community was confused. The press was confused. The SUSE Linux Enterprise customers were confused. So it has been decided that the next release of what has been famous as SUSE Linux distribution will be renamed to openSUSE 10.2 to end this confusion. Hopefully everyone will be happy now?
