api.kde.org down! so what?

KDE Developers may have noticed that the developer documentation server at api.kde.org is down. This is due to a hardware failure which will be recovered next week. That need not put the brakes on your work though, since if you have the source code on your system you can build the API docu locally yourself, as HTML, as man pages, or as Qt Assistant help files to view in Qt Assistant or Qt Creator.

Read all about it on techbase: http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tools/apidox

create call graphs with Doxygen

Since some years, I have searched for an elegant solution to generate call graphs out of C++ source code. Today I found it. It is doxygen. I have evaluated doxygen years ago, but I threw it away. The reason is that you have to know two things about doxygen:

  • Do not call doxygen, start with doxywizard and everything goes straightforward.

Photo KDE Tutorial 1-1: Levels adjust

This is possibly one of the most widely used and most simple method to adjust an image. It's so simple and effective that you will want to use it on all your pictures from now on, so keep an eye on this, and have fun.

Lets see this sample photo from Akademy 2008, kindly donated by Sebastian Kügler:

You'll clearly see, the photo is darkish. After all, it was taken during a presentation and possibly the room was pretty dark. But that's no excuse for a bad photo =)

What KDE can do for your (photo-)memories

Photography has changed a lot since digital cameras broke into our lives and replaced film cameras. Camera makers have made great efforts to convince us that digital is better, and that new digital cameras are worth their money.

Help for KDE CMake Modules

We now have documentation for our custom KDE CMake Modules, brought to you by the EBN. I have a little script that runs every night to re-generate this page, just in case we changes things as time goes by.

But, if you're like me, you'd rather have quick access to a man page. You can create one with the following command:

% cmake -DCMAKE_MODULE_PATH=/path/to/kdesvn/trunk/KDE/kdelibs/cmake/modules --help-custom-modules /path/to/kdeinstall/share/man/man1/kdecmake.1

How To Easily Print Posters With KDEPrint [UPDATED]

What a coincidence today happened. In the morning I used KDEPrint's 'poster' frontend to create a "poor man's poster" in A1 size from 4 A3 printouts.

In the afternoon, a lady mailed me, asking why her KDE print dialog on Solaris didn't show the poster dialog, while her husband's openSUSE KDE did show it.

I took the time, mailed her back what I knew about the question, and included a few screenshots.
