No, this is not a GNOME application, but a Qt 4 app running on GNOME. Plastique was designed to closely resemble the default style in KDE. With Qt 4.2, we are introducing a new style that will blend better into standard GNOME based desktops as well. The style is based on the current default style […]

New Plastique in 4.2

Published Wednesday June 21st, 2006 | Comments Off on New Plastique in 4.2
Posted in Uncategorized

The new Plastique style (see earlier posts about Plastique2) is making its way into Qt 4.2. It’s not 100% done, but it’s much better than what it used to be. Hopefully it’ll be complete within few weeks after the snapshots are out. Beware of off-by-one rendering errors, though. Once y’all dig your hands into the […]

Berlin office up and running – well, sorta :)

Posted in Qt

As some of you might have noticed we’re expanding into Germany, more specifically Berlin, even more specifically Adlershof, even EVEN more specifically Albert-Einstein strasse 16. The honorable task of getting the keys and opening the office for the very first time fell on Thomas and me, I wonder why Matthias didn’t do it himself – […]

Buffered QTextStream + pos() == ?

Published Saturday June 17th, 2006 | Comments Off on Buffered QTextStream + pos() == ?
Posted in Uncategorized

[Disclaimer: Qt 4.2 is not released yet, and anything can still change.] QTextStream in Qt 3 was unbuffered. Feeding bytes by bytes into a codec which appended QChar by QChar into a QString, it did have room for some speed improvements. So in Qt 4.0, we introduced QTextStream’s replacement: … QTextStream! That is – we […]

D-BUS and accessibility

Posted in Uncategorized

After porting kdelibs to D-BUS and Thiago’s blog entry about controlling a KDE application via D-BUS, I decided to give it a try. After a bit of playing, I came up with a solution that automatically exports a com.trolltech.AccessibleObject interface for every widget (see screenshot). The command dbus :1.63 /Window1/CurrentValue com.trolltech.AccessibleObject.description (where :1.63 is the […]

Mouse event propagation

Posted in Qt, Qtopia

Have you ever implemented mouse handling in a Qt widget? Either in a custom widget, (that inherits QWidget directly,) or by extending some existing widget, let’s say QLabel, with interaction abilities? For the most simple cases, mouse handling is quite intuitive in Qt: just reimplement a mouse handler function (virtual function, inherited from QWidget), and […]

it’s spelled ‘Qtopia’

Published Wednesday May 24th, 2006 | Comments Off on it’s spelled ‘Qtopia’
Posted in Qt, Qtopia

ok, have to rant here. I have worked with Qtopia and friends for several years now, and occasionally see ‘Qtopia’ spelled as “QTopia’. and for some reason, it bothers me seeing this (perhaps pedanticness?). Please, if you write about ‘Qtopia’, spell it as Q-t-o-p-i-a, there is no capital ‘T’. and if you have written it […]

Qt 4.1.3 released

Published Friday May 19th, 2006 | 2 Comments on Qt 4.1.3 released
Posted in Qt

Qt 4.1.3 was released to the public today. A lot of work went into this release, and I’m happy that it’s out in the wild now. I was monitoring the incoming bugreports during the day and nearly fainted when reading about a binary compatibility breakage. We have some extensive test-suites to make sure we don’t […]

cmake in KDE

Posted in KDE

Lorn, it’s pretty simple: KDE needs a build system that supports flexible configure checks since it uses a lot of 3rdparty libraries. An easy and portable way of finding if a library is installed in the propery version on a system, if a header provides the correct prototype of a function, if a compiler supports […]
