Issue 105

6th April 2008 by Danny Allen

This Week...

General improvements in Kickoff, KRunner, and assorted Plasma applets. Integration of Marble into Digikam for geolocation of photos. Configuration of fullscreen mode in Gwenview. KHTML fully passes "selector" test. An automation GUI for KLinkStatus. A database connection plugin for the Kommander scripting framework. Tutorials and examples added to Step, which moves from kdereview to kdeedu. More maps for KGeography. Various enhancements in the new KBlocks game, which moves to from playground/games to kdereview. Get Hot New Stuff becomes functional in the now-feature-complete KDiamond game. Various work in Kate. Improved file tagging mechanics in Dolphin. Improvements in context menu sharing between Konqueror and Dolphin. Beginnings of a Windows/WMI backend for Solid. Work to integrate PcmIO into Phonon. Improved hyperlink creation support in composition across KDE-PIM. Work on user data/statistics migration issues between Amarok 1.x and the upcoming version 2.0. Group policies in KTorrent. The Glimpse scanning application is renamed "Skanlite". Redesigns and refactoring in NEPOMUK. Okteta moves to kdereview.
Sebastian Trueg writes an update about NEPOMUK:
The NEPOMUK Server Redesign
There were many problems with the NEPOMUK server and all NEPOMUK services being KDED modules. Whenever there was some bug in one of the services, KDED would crash completely and maybe even more importantly, KDED would be totally blocked during heavy database activity. In the end I learned that KDED was never intended to host arbitrary services but only small, stable ones.

Thus, I decided to give the NEPOMUK server its own process including its own service handling. The result is a much cleaner design than before. The NEPOMUK server itself does not host the data repository anymore. That has also been moved to a service. Using the server's automatic service dependency handling, other NEPOMUK services will not be started until the data repository is ready (this might take a while in case some conversion has to be done, think of Soprano backend changes).

The server itself is started as a normal KDE autostart service at login time and can still be controlled the same way as before. It also provides a legacy D-Bus interface to access the data repository (although that is running in an extra service now). And by "running", I really mean as in an extra process. This might scare some people, since for each NEPOMUK service a child process is spawned, but this has the advantage that buggy services will not bring down the whole system (thank you Akonadi for the design idea).

Now, the whole system is much cleaner and more responsive as services won't block the storage anymore. It took quite a long time to get here but I think that the NEPOMUK server can be regarded as "done" now (except for bug fixes and improvements of course).

The best way to access the data storage is still Nepomuk::ResourceManager::mainModel() as it connects through a local socket instead of D-Bus (which is faster) and re-connects if necessary.

The old D-Bus way still works though:

Soprano::Client::DBusClient client( "org.kde.NepomukStorage" );
Soprano::Model* model = client.createModel( "main" );

The NEPOMUK Services
As already mentioned the most important service is the storage, as it hosts the Soprano data repository which contains all the NEPOMUK data.

Apart from that, there is the Strigi service which controls Strigi, i.e. does file indexing using a NEPOMUK backend. The ontology loader makes sure installed ontologies are up to date in the data repository. This is important for type and property information.

Playground holds more services, most importantly the file watch service, which updates the metadata when files are moved or deleted. This is a feature that I really want to have in KDE 4.1. But the problem is that it depends on inotify at the moment, since FAM does not support the moving of files. You do not know the original URL of a moved file.

Any input would be appreciated!

The NEPOMUK Social Query Daemon service is the one I blogged about before. It is a demo service that is supposed to attract developers. I don't think it really did its job yet though. ;)

Current Development
My latest commits to playground today introduce the "real NEPOMUK". Only dealing with tags, ratings, and flat file indexing, we would not really need RDF. But now we bring arbitrary classes and relations into the mix. The PIMOShell is the first tool that supports creating new classes and properties. It is intended as a maintainer and debugging tool for all NEPOMUK data as it lists all available types, their instances and the instances' properties and allows to modify them. It may be worth playing with!
Carsten Niehaus reports on recent KDE-Edu developments:
In the last few days, many important developments happened in the KDE-Edu department...

Step
Vladimir Kuznetsov moved Step from kdereview to kdeedu. This means that KDE 4.1 will ship it! Last week Step was demonstrated to several of Carsten's students (7th and 10th grade) resulting in a little feedback. This feedback already resulted in several changes, including the ability to easily modify the speed of the simulation:


Other recent changes include the tutorials. Aliona, Vladimir's wife, added five tutorials. The following video shows one of them (the second) and also demonstrates how easy it is to "play" with Step: I added a rectangule to the simulation to see what happens when the ball bounces against it...


We hope to get more bug reports and ideas for Step, now that it is inside an official KDE module. What we currently would like to get from users is more tutorials and more examples. So, we ask you, dear reader, to test Step and construct one interesting file and send it to us (kde-edu@kde.org) with the permission to share it under the GPL or another free licence. For example, why don't you create a tutorial demonstrating advanced graphs or perhaps create a Billards-like situation on a "table" to demonstrate the physics of Billards?

If you have great ideas for simulations but do not have either time or the ability to create them for Step, please add those ideas to our Step Wiki. We will try to create them for you!

Kalzium
Last week, Marcus D. Hanwell (last year's Google Summer of Code student for Kalzium) ported the 3D Viewer of Kalzium to use the latest released version of Avogadro. This move enables us to use several advanced features which have been added to libavogadro after KDE 4.0 was frozen. For KDE 4.2 we now plan to stop using a local snapshot and use the version of (lib)Avogadro installed on the system.

For KDE 4.0 this was not possible as the Avogadro API was still under heavy development. For KDE 4.1 the API is unlikely to change very much, but the hard freeze for KDE 4.1 is a little too close. Marcus' Summer of Code project last year was a huge success. It resulted in many improvements to the Avogadro library itself, but, even more importantly, where he ported Kalzium to use an early snapshot of the Avogadro library. Marcus has continued working on the Avogadro library and recently was able to begin working on KDE trunk again (after a trans-atlantic move, laptop breakage, and many delays in shipping his desktop).

Now that Kalzium has been ported to the latest Avogadro snapshot, Marcus will continue working on exposing more of the features he implemented during his Google Summer of Code project. He has also expressed an interest in mentoring students for this year's Google Summer of Code (if any suitable applications are accepted).

Bug Fixes

Graphics

Gilles Caulier committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/digikam/utilities/searchwindow:

digiKam from trunk : fix Crash when starting new Advanced Search tool from Marcel...

This is the same problem here than from Statusbar : KLineEdit. Using QLineEdit instead work fine !!!

Problem is relavnt of stylesheet applied to KLineEdit with Qt4.3. Note than QT 4.2, no crash appears...

There is a _serious_ problem here which must be fixed in KDELibs before next stable KDE release.

KDE Base

Maks Orlovich committed changes in /branches/KDE/4.0/kdelibs/khtml:

Properly close DOM-created nodes. Fixes CNN.com election tracker, and 3 Acid3 tests (more like 3.5, actually --- gets one further).

It also makes Acid3 look uglier, since it exposes a bug in rendering of alternate content (it didn't show up before since the object was plain not getting loaded).

I know what's wrong just need to <strike>Bug dfaure for a solution</strike>figure out how to fix it.

David Faure committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kfile/kfileplacesitem.cpp:

Fix error dialog box on dolphin startup if trash:/ isn't available (I had a very limited kdebase-trunk install)

But this still seems like overkill (and slowing down dolphin/konq/kde startup), what about special-casing trash and reading trashrc instead?

Germain Garand committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/khtml/css:

fix parsing of the argument of the functional :not() selector to obey CSS3's definition of a simple selector.

KHTML now fully passes Daniel Glazman's selector test!

<a href="http://disruptive-innovations.com/zoo/css3tests/selectorTest.html#target">http://disruptive-innovations.com/zoo/css3tests/selectorTest.html#target</a>;

Robert Knight committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kdeui/kernel/kstyle.cpp:

KStyle: Support custom background brushes in item-view items.

Fixes Color Scheme Editor in Konsole.

Robert Knight committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/apps/konsole/src/TerminalDisplay.cpp:

Fix calculation of required display size given (lines,columns) in TerminalDisplay widget. Include width of vertical scrollbar (if visible) and top/left margins. Konsole will now start with a default width of 80 columns on most systems if no window size has been saved in konsolerc

The initial size of Konsole is specified as 80x40 internally. Qt constrains the size of top-level windows on their first automatic resize to a maximum of 2/3rds of the screen size (see QWidgetPrivate::adjustedSize()).

This means that the display might not get the 80x40 columns that it asks for, depending on the desktop size.

Jeremy Paul Whiting committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/knewstuff/knewstuff2/core:

Change and fix Uncompress support. Old value of "true" is converted to "always"

possible values:
* "always" - try to uncompress, if can't detect archive type, or error uncompressing, fail
* "archive" - try to uncompress if it's an archive, otherwise, just copy
* "never" - default, just copy the files to the destination path

also changed the signalPayloadFailed to pass the entry pointer, used in my local ui changes to report failures when installing

KDE-PIM

Thomas McGuire committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdepim/kmail:

Make the "complete message" and "body of message" filter fields appear again.

Although casting a string to a boolean is a nice feature, we don't want that here, dear gcc.

Multimedia

Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Whew... a lot of attempts at fixing OR and AND'ed filters later, this is what I have come up with. this stuff makes my head spin, so please test it a bit!

Mark Kretschmann committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src/EngineController.cpp:

Fix up the engine. Should work now again with local files, last.fm, and Ampache.

I've disabled slotAboutToFinish() for now, because we can't rely on it being called by Phonon.

So it's all really wonky if you have to take that into account. I don't need wonky.

Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src/servicebrowser/magnatunestore:

Fix a few "gotcha's" in the automatic updating. Also, since it should rarely be needed now, remove the update button. Also remove the redownload button. Both of these are now available in the actions menu.

Games

Nicolas Roffet committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdegames/kmines:

There was a bug in KMines: the program was freezing in a custom game if you chose to put in the field so many mines that there was not at least 9 free positions. Now, it's working.

New to avoid trivial games, KMines now constrains the user to let at least 10 (-> one more than 9) positions free.

Note: I'm not sure it's a good idea to avoid to put mines on neighbor positions to the start position... To discuss...

add new command line options:

Paulo Moura Guedes committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdewebdev/klinkstatus/src:

First steps for the automation dialog GUI:

Use KConfigXT instead of plain KConfig. Love the kcfgfile arg="true" feature in the kcfg file which allows to construct multiple instances pointing to different files, which is needed here because each site check to automate has its own configuration file. The implementation is a little strange though :( I have to do things like this:

AutomationConfig::instance(QString());
delete AutomationConfig::self();
AutomationConfig::instance(configurationFile);
AutomationConfig* config = AutomationConfig::self();

because AutomationConfig::instance only do something if self() is a null pointer.

The automation configuration dialog now shows with the several site entries in the left, still missing the widget with the configurations and the wizard to configure a new automated site check.

Marcel Wiesweg committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/digikam/digikam:

New Search Interface:

SearchTabHeader is the widget at the top of the search sidebar.
It provides a directly accessible line edit to start a quick search, and a button to start an advanced search.
In the lower part, the current search can be saved as a stored search, or if a stored search is selected, its parameters can be edited.

Note:
The widget currently consists of two group boxes. This may not be the best solution, but after some experiments with separator line, flat group boxes, QFrames etc. this was the most acceptable solution so far.

Note:
Advanced search is still under development; you will see that it will show an UI, but not carry out a search.

AbstractAlbumModel is a QAbstractItemModel based on our Albums as managed by AlbumManager.

This base class provides most of the functionality for mapping albums to QModelIndexes and vice versa and complete mapping of the signals from AlbumManager when an album is added, deleted or renamed. Editing and Drag-and-Drop is not implemented.

AbstractSpecificAlbumModel is a subclass that manages thumbnail generation for album and tag thumbnails.

AbstractCheckableAlbumModel adds a property to make the albums in the model checkable. The check states are kept in an internal QHash. Various methods are provided to access the check state by Album*.

AlbumModel and TagModel are finally the subclasses that can readily be used, providing physical albums and tags resp.

Pino Toscano committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdegraphics/okular:

Add a Live Connect extension to be able to react to the very tiny bit of exposed JavaScript API for host containers.

The current implementation is very very very simple and minimal, and misses a bit of stuff (eg the queue'ing for messages, errors, etc), but for now seems working.

Many thanks to Maksim for his precious help with the extension working :)

Alexander Kempshall committed changes in /branches/work/kooka-kde3/kooka:

PhotoCopy. Changed to print image using 'scan' print mode with scanner resolution obtained from sane, can do this as scan/print i one operation. Also changed to parameterise m_extraMarginPercent in call to KookaPrint::printImage to ensure that printed image is close approximation to original.

Operation is available from the "Scan - PhotoCopy" menu. When presented with print dialog simply push print button (or cancel to return). If print button pushed
- print dialog will disappear
- scan progress bar and scan will start
- printing status message box will appear
- printing status message box will disappear
- print will spool and print dialog will re-appear

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/apps/dolphin/src:

Implemented tagging of multiple files at the same time.

The result is always an intersection of the tags of all files.

Another possibility would be to only change the clicked tag. Feedback?

Alex Merry committed changes in /trunk/kdereview/plasma/dataengines/nowplaying:

Add some i18n support.

I'm slightly concerned that the translations may not be easy without context, but including context means that applets can't just call i18n() on all strings (which is kind of the point of the I18N_NOOP calls).

CC'ing the kde-i18n-doc list for comments.

This should finally address all the issues raised by the review process.

Minor issue: the Dolphin context menu should take care about the protocol capabilities (copy, move, delete, ...) like in konq_popupmenu (I'll fix this before 4.1).

Some more refactoring.

Changed the scripting backend to Kross!
Some things dont work yet (field values), but its a good start.

Added a 'report' object available to scripts which contains a helper to reference any object in the report, aswell as its title and data source.

Added a 'constants' object to the script engine because kross doesnt allow 'global' contants, they have to belong to an object.

Maybe some features like this could be borrowed from qtscript (adding values/constants to the manager, aswell as objects)?

Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Make it possible for QueryMakers to define which levels of filters they accept.
The default implementation is to accept everything. Some QueryMakers ( Such as Ampache and Mp3Tunes ) do not support filters for all the levels in the collection tree, and thus override the validFilterMask() function to return a mask of the filter levels that they support.

The collectionTreItemModelBase has been updated to honor this and only add filters that are accepted. The AmpacheQueryMaker now only accepts Artist filters.

This system will also be really useful for making the FilterEditor aware of which filter options should be available depending on which collection we are building filters for.

Since highlighting is done with the kate smart-mutex locked, this results in more responsive editing, without the annoying breaks.

David Nolden committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdevelop:

Jakob Petsovits committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/plasma/applets/kickoff/simpleapplet/simpleapplet.cpp:

Use the document-open-recent icon instead of view-history on the "Recently Used" Kickoff tab. It's only a fine line between those two, and both would probably be suited for this, so I argue the change with the following two reasons:

a) Looks less sharp and black with the default Oxygen theme (making it look more in place with the other tabs, hopefully), but more importantly:
b) It's specified in the naming spec, and therefore should exist in a lot more themes than just Oxygen.

Germain Garand committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/khtml/xml:

merge some ad hoc changes to RangeImpl::surroundContents, whose main rationale is "keep Acid3's 11th test happy".

He says: "it's a pragmatic solution".

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/plasma/applets/kickoff/ui/tabbar.cpp:

now that we have both proper tabs and they are animated on switching, the icon movement is gratuitous.

it also doesn't work visually with non-South facing tabs, so even if it was kept it would remain a South only thing unless the text/icon placement was altered significantly.

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/nepomuk/core:

Introducing Nepomuk::Service, the base class for all nepomuk services. Nepomuk services are close to KDED modules (from a developer's perspective) but are controlled by the nepomuk server.

Each service is run in its own process since nepomuk services tend to perform long operations and one buggy service should not bring down the whole server.

My next commit to kdebase will cover the new nepomuk server and the base services.

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/runtime:

Completely redesigned the nepomuk server.
It now mainly acts as a service controller and configuration endpoint.
The nepomuk store has been converted to a nepomuk service which acts as the default dependency of all other services.

Strigi is now also controlled via a nepomuk service.

This redesign makes nepomuk much cleaner as there are no more special cases. The depencency handling takes care of letting other services wait for the storage service to convert data if necessary and also stops and starts dependecies automatically.

While it may seem like wasting resources to have multiple processes it makes the whole nepomuk system (which was never intended to be lightweight btw) more stable and responsive.
