OK, I am over the international travelling thing for a while. Just got home for the first time in about 5 weeks. The swim pool’s a deep shade of green, pool pump filter is broke, all 7 fish are dead (not part of the green pool, but perhaps would have lived longer there), lawn looks […]

Posted in Uncategorized

The Qt LSB integration is in its final stages: http://chaos.troll.no/~harald/lsb/. Linking to the stub libraries and the stub headers will make sure that your Qt application will not use any private symbols and be a good Qt citizen. I’m currently adding the last bits and pieces to the LSB database to make sure that the […]

I finally got started porting gutenbrowser to Qt 4. woohoo!! Will start out with the windows version, thanks to my employer being so generous and giving away it’s flagship product as GPL open source. This needs to be more of a rewrite, rather than a straight “port”. The Gutenberg index is getting so frickin’ big […]

Well, my excursion into “Tablet Kde” is missing two main features of using Kde well on a Tablet Pc…. one is really a show-stopper… there’s no on screen keyboard, no hold-to-right-mouse-click, and there’s no rotation that I can find. It would be nice also if there were some cool “pen” applications. If I had more […]

Qt 4.1 rocks!

Published Thursday December 22nd, 2005 | 3 Comments on Qt 4.1 rocks!
Posted in Qt

The community reactions to the release of 4.1 were quite encouraging. If you followed some of the discussions, e.g. on http://osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=13042 , you have probably noticed that even the most verbal critics are finally running out of arguments. Basically the only complaint that’s left is that Qt – fasten your seat belts – adds introspection […]

PDF and Postscript generators With the release of 4.1 Qt has gained the ability to generate PDF natively.

Published Wednesday December 21st, 2005 | 22 Comments on KDE, Ease-of-Use, and the Year of the Linux Desktop
Posted in KDE

The recent discussions on KDE versus other Linux desktops – accidentally started by KDE-user Linus Torvalds – showed an interesting new development in the eternal debate. First of all it didn’t come as a surprise that Linus uses KDE, after all Fritz Elfert made it very clear back in 1996 that KDE stands for “Kernel-Hackers’ […]

After a long 12 hour flight to L.A, 5 hours in the L.A. airport and a 2.5 hour flight to Denver, we landed. This was no ordinary landing though. Well, the landing was non eventful, but what was notable was the weather. When we left Brisbane, we were outside, swiming… it was summer, with a […]
