Weave for PIM?

Last year I discovered Mozilla Weave (now Sync). Weave is a Firefox addon and they offer the server components to install your own weave server. It offers everything I would like to have for PIM. So lets start with some details… The Firefox Sync addon synchronizes the following things between your browsers/computers: bookmarks history forms prefs tabs passwords The data stored on the weave server...



Yesterday I’ve visited the Tokamak4 Sprint. I’ve attended the talks in the evening and then had dinner with some KDE hackers. Today I’ve looked at PlanetKDE and saw the KDE bluetooth screencast from Alex Fiestas. I liked the screencasts in the KDE 4.4 announcement, it should the users what’s cool and new. Yesterday I’ve heard the first time about activities in KDE4. I wondered what...


kio_sftp updates

openSUSE has backported the new kio_sftp implementation based on libssh to their KDE 4.3 packages. This increased the users and helped to find some bugs in kio_sftp and KDE. The current implementation is working fairly well. As soon as libssh 0.4 will be released (hopefully soon) I will add more features. Users asked for ~/.ssh/config support and I’ve added openssh’s statvfs extension to libssh. This...


kio_sftp rewrite upstream

I’ve commited my kio_sftp rewrite to KDE trunk today. The patch for KDE 4.3 if you want to test it is available here. You need libssh 0.3.2 to get it working but I suggest to use the libssh v0-3 git branch which has fixes found by kio_sftp testers. Thanks to all of them!


Hack Week: kio_sftp in action!

The openSUSE Hackweek is over and I have a working kio_sftp implementation using libssh. There is still work which needs to be done. I have to cleanup the code and test all the features (resume of files, recursive deletion). Today I’ve copied successfully the first files to my webserver! I’ve uploaded the two files to my webspace, here. Remeber that it’s not finished yet! You...


kio_sftp authentication with libssh works

I’ve got the fingerprint verification and authentication with public key and keyboard interactive working. There is still a dialog missing for special interactive questions, but the normal user stuff works just fine.


kio_sftp using libssh

I wanted to reimplement kio_sftp with libssh since some month. This week is another openSUSE Hack Week. I’m in the SUSE office in Nürnberg with some KDE developers. Dirk Müller helps me with the implementation. I’m normally not a C++ developer so it is a good oppurtunity to get help and things done. More on Wednesday. The weather will be good tommorow so I plan...


phonon and amarok wakeups

I’ve used my notebook the first time with openSUSE 11.1 without a power cable attached and wondered why my battery was empty after a short time. So I’ve did some research and found a knotify4 bug, this leads to a phonon and xine bug. I have the latest version of xine installed and the wakeup bug in xine is already fixed sine 1.1.9. So there...


Pimp my KDE

As KDE 4.1 RC1 has been released I’ve installed it on my notebook and pimped it I’ve build the Polyester theme in the openSUSE Build Service for KDE4 and Qt4. krusader for KDE4 is available too, here.
