Kamoso in KDE Applications

Hey,
I'd like to move it there. It's in extragear/multimedia now and I keep
forgetting to release as often as I should.

But the application is working, maintained and developed.

Thoughts?

New KDE application

Hi,

A very happy new year to all. Hope you guys are doing good. :)

Me and Rahul (CC'ed; IRC nick - rahulch) came up with an idea for a
new application in KDE, and we were hoping to get an opinion on it.

The central idea behind the app will be to manage the expenses of a
group of users. As a user, you can create one or more groups, add
members to them, and add entries for expenses for a given group. You
can also check the outstanding balances and choose to settle-up with one
or more members.

Initial release of an extragear project 'Redshift Control'

Hi!

I'd like to make an initial release of Redshift Control plasmoid. Here is the project's repo:

What actions should I do, please?

UI tests on build.kde.org

Hi,

is it possible to have UI tests on build.kde.org? If not what is the best
practice to prevent them from being executed?

Looking for mentor for new KDE developer

Hello all,

I've recently ported the unmaintained KDE application "KuickShow" to KDE
5 and plan to at least keep it working in the forseeable future.
In order to get a KDE developer account to maintain the application on
the KDE infrastructure, it was suggested that I first find a mentor in
case I have questions about infrastructure, development workflows,
translations and so on.

Would anyone be willing to do that?

Thanks,
Christian

DownloadDialog for Latte Layouts

Hello,

I am trying to support the KNS3::DownloadDialog in Latte in order for the
user to be able to download Latte Layouts from store.kde.org from inside
Latte... But I cant get it to work, the DownloadDialog shows the message

Could not find category "Latte Layouts"

or when I change it to 417 based on:
<a href="https://store.kde.org/browse/cat/417/ord/latest/" title="https://store.kde.org/browse/cat/417/ord/latest/">https://store.kde.org/browse/cat/417/ord/latest/</a>

Could not find category "417"

Do you have any ideas what is needed to work?

KDE 2018 application

Hi,

I want to apply for 2018 KDE but the deadline has passed already.So, I was
wondering if it is possible to participate now?.

Moreover, I have already signed up as a participant since the portal
allowed me to do so. However, I could not see the link or so as to how to
select the project and the mentor. Kindly make me aware so I can proceed
with the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

SoK 2018 Project - 'New Season of KDE Website'

Hello everyone,
I'm Mayank Gupta, I successfully completed a project under CCExtractor
organisation in Google Summer of Code 2017, I am interested in developing
"New Season of KDE webste" under Season of KDE 2018. From @baloneyGeek I
got to know KDE Identity uses standard LDAP userdb and also that I'd need
to setup dummy server for the same to test KDE identity integration for
developed website.

So about the implementation of idea 'New SoK website', when integrating KDE
Identity (which uses LDAP db), do the 'Org Admins' belong to different
`OrganisationalUnit` on the server?

DragonPlayer

Hello all,
Sad to say, DragonPlayer seems dead-ish. It hasn't gotten any code
changes since January of this year. Kubuntu has stopped shipping it by
default, replacing it with VLC. Bugzilla tickets continue to pile up.

What's the way forward here? Should we look for a new maintainer or
admit defeat and just recommend VLC or MPV or something else?

Question about Kwallet

Hello,

I have a question about the Kwallet wizard and I hope I am asking in the
right place as I was instructed to ask here. On Ubuntu 16.04 with Xfce 4.12

--password-store=kwallet, I get a wizard that looks like this:

Evolving KDE – The goals are set!

Hey everyone :)

Since Akademy in Almería we have been going through the process of
defining goals for KDE for the next 3 to 4 years. Different ideas were
proposed and refined. 10 of them made it into the community-wide vote
to select 3 of them. Today I am proud to announce the result based on
the 684 submitted votes.

The 3 goals KDE will be focusing on over the next 3 to 4 years are:
* Top-notch usability and productivity for basic software: We want our
users to love our software and enable them to do their day-to-day work
hassle-free.

releaseme new requirement: non-conflicting files on case-insensitive FS/OS

Guten Abend Everyone!

To aid with use of our tarballs on Windows and case-insensitive file
systems, releaseme now makes sure [1] that the tarballs it generates
are safe to use in such contexts.

As this is a major problem for pretty much every source tarball as it
prevents people from doing Windows builds and/or unpack on exfat/fat32
this is considered a fatal flaw in the tarball.

What controls the default ordering of which application handles an opened file?

Howdy all,
I'm working on adding Krita file support to Gwenview
(<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/D8751" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/D8751">https://phabricator.kde.org/D8751</a>) and my patch works, but has the side
effect of causing Krita files to prefer being opened in Gwenview rather
than Krita itself. Krita should take preference when it's installed, but
how is the default application ordering determined? Where should this
change be made?

Thanks everyone,
Nate Graham

Konsole doesn't search $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS for konsolerc

Konsole successfully searches $XDG_DATA_HOME (~/.local/) then
$XDG_DATA_DIRS (~/usr/share/my-distro-package/) for its konsole/ data
directory, finding my `Shell.profile`, which is for my distro's users
(Whonix).

The problem is `.konsolerc`. Konsole searches $XDG_CONFIG_HOME (~/.config/)
for .konsolerc. If it doesn't find it there (which it won't upon first
use), it *should* then search $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS. However, it does not.
Instead it creates a default `.konsolerc` in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME. I even did
`chmod -rw .konsolerc`.

Do not enforce copy and paste restrictions in Okular

Hello,

KDE is under no legal obligation to distribute source code or software
that enforces PDF's copy&paste restriction flags. In fact, not even
Google Drive's Android PDF viewer enforces this. The Okular source
code calls this, 'DRM'. Put this way, the current situation appears
even more dubious. It's a shame to watch KDE follow this path, and I'm
perplexed to see this 'DRM' logic embedded inside free software.

The attached patch removes these needless restrictions. It works perfectly.

Thanks,
Jason

Out-of-screen painting for QuickView ?

Hello everyone,

an encyclopedic question, a QQuickView when is out of screen is not painted
at all. This creates some rare issues with Latte because of its animations

Join the Akademy 2018 talks committee!

Hi

We are looking for people to join the Akademy 2018 Talks Committee.

To be suitable all you need is to have attended Akademy previously, have a
good idea of what the community is up to and have some spare time over the
next few months.

The committee comes up with some suggested themes in the Call for Papers and
decides on the selection of talks from the submissions. So they are a very
important part of making the conference a success.

If you would like to be involved in this please let me know.

Cheers,

KIO and cookies

Hello to everyone,
I'm working on making QWebEngine work correctly in Konqueror when downloading
files (although I didn't have much time to spend on this in the last months).

The problem is that instead of downloading the correct files, in some cases
Konqueror download html files. This only happens from sites requiring
authentication (I first noticed when trying to download a file from my bank's
web page); besides, it only happens if I try to use KIO for the download, for
example calling KIO::copy from a slot connected with
QWebEngineProfile::downloadRequested.

No good way to play video files located on password-protected Samba shares in KDE Plasma

It seems that our users don't have a good way to play videos on
password-protected Samba shares: <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328</a>

For programs that use it, KIO transparently provides network protocol
access, abstracting away the details and security aspects. DragonPlayer
is the only one KIO-using video player I'm aware of, and its samba
access seems broken (<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386192" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386192">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386192</a>), and
the program itself seems largely unmaintained. Other popular video
players like VLC, MPV, and MPlayer do not use KIO.

new feature: draw tool

Hi all,

*Not sure if this is the right mail list to request new features*

It would be nice to see a feature inside spectacle to draw basic
rectangles/circles over an image.

This feature may not fulfill the main reason to use spectacle, but it would
save a lot of time avoiding to open an image editor + editing the picture
there.

Participation of KDE in GCI 2018

Hello everyone,

I am writing this to urge KDE to participate in GCI 2018. On the idea page,
we have around 20+ tasks and few members have shown interest in adding
tasks for their projects in GCI later(if we take part).

My opinion is that we should participate. Thoughts?

I can apply as org admin if no one else is available for the task. I will
need to ask few questions in regards to that. Can I email someone with
my question related to the process? If yes, please state so that I can ask.
Time is the issue but I can put in the required time to get it done.

Add your tasks to the Idea page for GCI

Hi everyone,

I have added few tasks on the GCI page and would like to ask other
interested mentors to add their ideas to the idea page.

I have also reused some of the ideas from the last year GCI. We need
minimum 25 tasks for participation before the date 21st October so that
time for doing the required things for applying as an organization is
reserved. More ideas can be added later.

Any sort of task can be added to the idea page if they are doable by
students of age group 13-17.

Building Qt with kdesrc-build

Hi all,

I'm trying to build Qt using kdesrc-build on Debian Stretch.  I've
successfully built a number of KDE modules but now I've come up
against plasma-workspace's dependency on Qt >= 5.9.0 which Stretch
doesn't provide.

I've followed the instructions here

<a href="https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-features.html" title="https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-features.html">https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-featur...</a>

but unfortunately a number of Qt packages fail to build as
kdesrc-build expects a CMakeLists.txt file:

rah@myrtle:~/proj/plasma-mobile/kdesrc$ grep "Error" $( ls -1rt src/log/latest/*/cmake.log | tail -n 3 )
src/log/latest/qtmultimedia/cmake.log:CMake Erro

Passing arguments to application when using KRun::runApplication

Hi!

I have a KService that I've found using
KMimeTypeTrader::self()->preferredService and let's say I know it's
Dolphin. I'd like to run Dolphin telling it to open a folder and select a
file in particular.

Re: Is there interest in participating in Google Code-in this year?

Hi,

Kopete has tasks that can be done by GCI candidates.

Yes, people are busy. Other new members of KDE should take the initiatives
for their projects and participate to mentor GCI students. It's a great way
to get potential enthusiastic contributors for your projects.

It takes effort to be mentor but we always have experienced members to help
us when lost on something :)

If you can mentor and have time, add your proposal here which you are
willing to mentor.

Is there interest in participating in Google Code-in this year?

Hello folks, when I've written about GCi before this, I got few to no
replies. My feeling is that previous enthusiastic mentors are without
the energy and time to participate this year.

Org applications are open, but unless I hear a swell of enthusiasm
here, I'm inclined to not apply.

Thoughts?

Dolphin: Updating the item model after KIO::CopyJob

I'm working on a change to Dolphin that involves using a KIO::CopyJob to
copy files. It works fine so far, but when I query the KFileItemModel to
get the index of the new file(s) so I can update the selection, I get
back an index of -1. It looks like the item model isn't automatically
updatyed after the copy job. I think I have to do something special to
get the KFileItemModel to see the new files, but what?

Easy, encrypted transfer of larger files over third party server

Hello,

since the day I started to use email, every now and then I would like to send someone a large file
(big or several images, large presentation, audio or video file) that does not fit in an email or
vice-versa.

Nowadays, there are plenty of free online storages and transfer services (e.g.
<a href="https://wetransfer.com/" title="https://wetransfer.com/">https://wetransfer.com/</a>, DropBox etc.).

time to review the goal proposals

Hey folks :)

A little over a month ago I asked KDE contributors to submit proposals
for goals that KDE should focus on over the next 3 to 4 years
(<a href="http://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2017/08/20/evolving-kde-lets-set-some-goals/" title="http://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2017/08/20/evolving-kde-lets-set-some-goals/">http://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2017/08/20/evolving-kde-lets-set-some-goals/</a>).
I am very happy with the proposals that were submitted from different
parts of the community. A lot of work and thought went into them and
they all would make great focus areas for KDE over the coming years.

From today until the end of October we will go into the next phase and
refine these proposals. You can help make them ready for the vote in
November.

Sending the list of files from Ark to another application via Drag & Drop

DBus interface org.kde.ark.DndExtract has a method called
extractSelectedFilesTo, but I could not find a way to get the list of
extracted files. Is there one?
Use case: Drag some file from the archive opened in Ark, drop it to another
application (e.g. Kate), effectively opening the file. The application
needs to know the list of files to open after their extraction.
I know one can use Open with... in Ark itself, but D&D may be more natural
for some users, especially considering that (AFAIK) Windows can do this
with WinRar.

kdelibs 4 support module name or moduleset name for kdesrc-build

Hello,

For about a week, I have been trying to compile the latest kde
environment but failing because of kdelibs 4 incompatibilities with
openssl 1.1.0.

I checked out the instructions and all the documentation pertaining to
kdesrc-build to set the appropriate cmake options for kdelibs 4
support in my kdesrc-buildrc file:

module kdelibs4support
cmake-options
-DOPENSSL_CRYPTO_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/libcrypto.so
-DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/openssl-1.0
-DOPENSSL_SSL_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/libssl.so
end module

Apparently, it is not picked up at configure time:

# kdes

Flatpak Qt/KDE runtime

Hi,
Recently flathub started building our runtime into their systems. I
recommend using the runtimes there. I updated the wiki to reflect the
change:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak</a>

You will possibly have to remove and add again the runtime, but other
than that everything should work as usual.

Aleix
