How to build KDE 4

Post date: May 15, 2006, 22:05 Category: Installing Views: 3619 Comments
Tutorial quote: This topic describes how to build KDE 4 from subversion. I use an example way to show best practices. First, I get the build to work for the user kde-devel. This builds as well kdebase as kdelibs (arts is no longer needed). Then, I give some hints how to change code to KDE 4 for the case that you are in another KDE module.
To reduce complexity, we use the bash-shell (standard) throughout the tutorial.

Essential house keeping in Ubuntu

Post date: December 8, 2005, 11:12 Category: System Views: 3569 Comments
Tutorial quote: I started using Ubuntu Breezy ver 5.10 a month back on my machine. Prior to that I was exclusively into Fedora. What drew me to Ubuntu was the huge number of packages in its repositories including softwares which I find useful on a day-to-day basis like Tomboy which I had to compile from source in Fedora. But the Ubuntu CD comes with the base packages which support only open file formats. So if you want support for proprietary file formats like mp3 and quicktime support as well as install softwares not included on the CD, then you have to do some work.

I call it essential housekeeping because it is not exactly a problem, but only a matter of finding out how to get the necessary support. Here I share my experiences in putting the Ubuntu house in order on my machine.

The Version Control with Subversion book (by Ben Collins-Sussman, Brian W. Fitzpatrick & C. Michael Pilato) was very useful to me when I struggled with SVN. The e-version of the book also available for free.

Barnes reviews the typical requirements of computers used for relatively generic purposes, and shows how to give a new lease on life to aging laptops and PCs by replacing obsolete OSes such as Windows 98 with a combination of Linux, free open source applications, and inexpensive commercial software.
