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…

Well, Qtopia 2.2 is out, Trolltech is diligently working on Qtopia 4 (with some really great improvements!), it is almost summer here in the southern hemisphere, and I am headed for my first real vacation since I started with Trolltech. Bringing my Aussie family to Colorado (and having a brief wintertime)! So I am leaving […]

snow?

It hasn’t snowed here in years. Probably never has snowed here. Probably never will. In fact, it’s hot. I’m not used to the heat (even yet – being here for two years now), so I am hunkered inside with the air con on. Going back at christmas to Colorado. Which should be fun, as my […]

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. With Roberto’s latest optimizations, parsing all of Qt’s headers (including preprocessing them) takes only a few seconds. If you want to play with it, the source is in KDE’s svn, playgound/utils/lsbcpp.

Life in Brissie is great! World class ocean beaches nearby, relatively warm temperatures all year long (never freezes, anyway), friendly people where no shoes are the norm… BBQ’s all year long!! Not to mention I work for a great company that has a wonderful office environment that includes free lunches, excersize equipment, flexible work hours […]

Pens, brushes, colors, and … brushes.

Posted in KDE, Qt

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 […]

LinuxWorld 2005 Frankfurt

Posted in Qt

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 […]

Posted in KDE, Qt

I challenge anyone to come up with cold, hard facts and numbers about kde vs gnome / qt vs. gtk+ memory usage and performance. Please, _someone_ do some real analysis on this. I need facts, not conjucture! Enough of the FUD!

Kdevelop & Qtopia/Opie

Published Sunday November 6th, 2005 | 1 Comment on Kdevelop & Qtopia/Opie
Posted in KDE, Qt, Qtopia

Before I left Munich, I had a short chat with Roberto about Qtopia, editors and kdevelop. It got me thinking that indeed, kdevelop’s Qtopia and Opie integration needs to be better (i.e. updated). At least for application and plugin templates. I did some initial work with a Qtopia application template some time ago, but because […]
