KDE Bug Squashing and Packaging Day: Sunday April 5, 2009

April 2nd, 2009 by

Will Stephenson has announced that the KDE team will be having a bug squashing and packaging workshop day on Sunday, April 5:

I’m happy to announce that we’re having a bug squashing and packaging workshop  day this Sunday, the 5th of April.  This is being run in tandem with an upstream KDE bug squashing event running all weekend, so we can effectively sort bugs that are specific to openSUSE out from those that upstream KDE should know about.

For bug squashing, join #kde-bugs and #opensuse-kde on Freenode IRC.

For packaging, the KDE Team will be around #opensuse-kde from 1200CEST (that’s  10:00UTC) and I will present a couple of packaging tutorials and answer questions.   If you have an interest in learning to package and have not already mailed me, please send me a personal mail so I can call for
reinforcements if necessary.

See you on Sunday!

    Hi, guys, I’ve reported about a hundred bugs on bugzilla so far, and I also wrote some reminders for mysef to report the against KDE, but when I recently installed KDE 4.2.2, all these reminders (and data about my reported bugs, together with some importand data) were deleted by knotes (the information was stored in knotes). Now I’m a bit angry. So, I write down here some of my observations about the new KDE:
    -The calendar applet on the desktop consumes 100% CPU.
    -knotes deleted my old notes after updating.
    -knotes windows cannot be resized.
    -KSCD stops playing on hotplug events (usb connect/reconnect, etc.)
    -When I’m searching backwards for a text in konsole, and it reaches the beginning, and wants to jump onto the end, it will crash instead.
    -The battery icons in the KDE battery level monitor applet are shift right, out of the applet window (only 4.2.2)
    -I’ve found some more bugs, but can’t rememember anymore, and my notes are lost.

    In addition neither krfb nor krdc works (there are some bugreports on this topec both in novell and kde bugzilla, but while novell claims it upstream, kde simply ignores it). They didn’t work even in KDE3, so, virtually KDE has no builtin remote desktop function despite claiming it.

    I hope this includes fixing bluetooth under KDE. None of the bluetooth peripherals I had working under opensuse 11.0 on my laptop can be configured under KDE/opensuse 11.1. The bluetooth setup under Gnome works, however.

    What happened here?! Someone fixed the konsole backwards searching problem meanwhile. Thanks guys!
