Kirigami official released

Das KDE-Framework Kirigami steht in einer ersten Veröffentlichung bereit, um Qt-Entwickler bei der Erstellung konvergenter Apps für Desktop und Mobilgeräte plattformübergreifend zu unterstützen.

Kirigami currently officially supports Android, Desktop GNU/Linux (both X11 and Wayland), Windows, and the upcoming Plasma Mobile. iOS support is currently in an experimental stage, support for Ubuntu Touch is being worked on. The plan is to eventually become part of KDE Frameworks 5, but is currently released standalone in KDE Extragear. Since it is aimed to be a Tier 1 framework, it has no other dependencies apart from Qt, and therefore will not increase your application’s size any more than necessary. [...]

First Impression Of RaspberryPi


So after a while of borrowing multiply pi's, i've managed to buy one. Of course the shipment was delayed so it arrived at a week full of no time. Finally, i prepared all and started the installation, of course an arch linux (like the guy in the advertisement, "what else?" ;-)). The installation was quite easy, i struggeld a bit with the resizing of my partitions. The magic hint, resizes the extended partition first, then you are able to resize the root partition and everything is fine.

After that, i've browsed through the available packages and started setting up the tiny beast. Writing about window managers is a short one, don't do fancy stuff. Notion is working, openbox and fluxbox also. Of course xbmc is running like a charm. But xfce4 and lxde are a bit to much for the little arm. Kde is working better than expected but like chromium, it is far away from running smooth. A nice howto about installing xfce4 on arm arch linux can be found here. Some general beginner tutorials about different raspberry pi distributions can be found here.

What about using known software? Well, you can but keep in mind, it is an arm cpu under the hood. Midori is currently my first choice for browsing the web. If i need something with a gui, pcmanfm is performing well on the pi. Have some minutes left? Read this nice introduction about the desktop world of the raspberry pi.

Other Operation Systems Then Linux

Talking about the upcomming and possible shooting star firefox os, i can only write that i havn't tried it so far. There is a bunch of tutorials out there, like this, that. A list of possible alternative operation systems for the pi can be found here.

What To Do Now?

Well, first i want to try out the media center suitability of the little pi. I like the idea to control the xbmc via an android mobile. I also want to compare xbmc with openELEC. And for the far away future, i want to build zfs on linux on this little box (why?, of course because i can :-D). A git server is also and always an option, lets see. Privoxy, openVPN, tor, the list is getting longer the more i think about it :-).

web - open source linux tablet Vivaldi with KDE Plasma Active

More or less the vivaldi is a rebranded chines tablet with an kde plasma actice desktop/user experience on top. But all in all, the hardware of current tablets reachs a potential that should be enough for not rocket science task. Thats why i am very exited about this table. With raspberrypi for the tv and vivaldi for the easy task, i will became a cool gadget year ;-).
