openSUSE to Have Poster, T-Shirt Design Contest for oSC19

November 28th, 2018 by

openSUSE will have a t-shirt image and poster design contest for the openSUSE Conference 2019. Both contests are separate contests and have to meet certain requirements. Designers are encouraged to use open-source graphic editing software like Inkscape, Gimp or Krita. 

Design submitted should be licensed under CC-BY-SA 4.0 and allow everyone to use it without attribution. Design submitted must be original and should not include any third party materials conflicting with CC-BY-SA 4.0 with the attribution exception.

The poster design contest has the following requirements:

  1. The poster design must be designed for a DIN-A2-size poster. The size of the poster is (width X height) 420 x 594 mm and should include a 2 mm margin on all sides.
  2. Posters should include the openSUSE Conference name, the date (May 24 – 26) and the location (Nuremberg, Germany) of the conference.
  3. The poster design must be an .svg, .png or .pdf format.
  4. The poster needs to be emailed to ddemaio (@) opensuse.org.
  5. The posters should be added to the Poster contest wiki page as a .png so people can view the design.

The T-Shirt Design Contest has the following requirements:

  1. The image(s) design for the t-shirt must be an .svg format.
  2. The image(s) needs to be emailed to ddemaio (@) opensuse.org.

Tumbleweed Gets New Versions of KDE Plasma, Applications

September 20th, 2018 by

A total of four openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots were delivered to users of the rolling release this past week and the snapshot brought new versions of KDE Plasma and KDE Applications.

The most recent snapshot 20180917 updated three packages. The GNOME package dconf-editor was updated to  3.30.0. Users of the ext2 filesystem will notice the utility package e2fsprogs 1.44.4 will fix the debugs ncheck command to work for files with multiple hard links; the updated package also has new debugfs commands for dumping xattr blocks and i_blocks array. Another GNOME package was updated with the iagno 3.30.0 package for the game reversi, which shows that GNOME 3.30 packages are starting to be integrated into Tumbleweed snapshots.

Another three packages were updated in the 20180916 snapshot. The GNU Project debugger, gdb 8.2, added several patches and support access to new POWER8 registers. A fix was made for a GNU Compiler Collection 8.1 warning with the perl-DBD-mysql 4.047 updated, which also added options needed for public key based security. The other package that was updated in the snapshot was perl-Glib 1.327.

The GNOME Web browser was updated to version 3.30.0 with the update to the epiphany package in snapshot 20180915. Plenty of other packages were updated in this snapshot along with KDE Applications 18.08.1. Improvements in the new applications update include several bug fixes and the KIO-MTP component no longer crashes when the device is already accessed by a different application. Sending mails in KMail now uses the password when specified via password prompt and Okular now remembers the sidebar mode after saving PDF documents. The open source video editor pitivi 0.999 aded the Shift+click option to select a range of clips and the Save and Render buttons in the headerbar were moved to the right side.
