got my hands on one of Philips rad new phones, the Philips 968 available now in China. This phone has an incredible video camera, among other things. And runs linux, of course. It’s got USB, video out(!), and a sd card slot. Now, if I can just get KDE to sync with this somehow…

KDevelop’s C++ parser and LSB integration

Published Wednesday November 23rd, 2005 | Comments Off on KDevelop’s C++ parser and LSB integration
Posted in Qt

I’m currently playing with KDevelop’s new parser to get symbols from a C++ library into the LSB database.

QPalette is a wonderful class, but it’s easy to get confused when trying to deal with it “properly”, that is, always draw the correct shape with the right look based on the current palette. Issues emerge quickly for style authors (or widget authors that pick colors from the palette). It starts with painter brushes and […]

Made it to LinuxWorld in Frankfurt. The trade show is pretty busy, our booth is constantly well visited. We have a nice 42″ plasma screen where we’re demoing Qt and the Qt painting demos. The SVG vector drawing looks just great on such a screen. Every day, we’re giving out an Archos device, just watch […]
