This Week...

Desktop layout control moves from pager to KWin. OwnCloud gets instant search and sees many smaller commits which bring minor new features and work on the user interface. An asynchronous Nepomuk resource retriever is implemented in KDE PIM to improve performance. Rekonq receives a synchronisation feature. Early version of Dolphin 2.0 comitted. OpenVPN configuration import/export is now possible in Network Management. Kate now supports local folding. In Calligra there is work on caching and multiple bugfixes, Krita gets an update of undo support.
Artem Serebriyskiy introduces the new Nepomuk Web Extractor.


To explain what the Nepomuk Web Extractor project is, I should start with a short introduction about Nepomuk itself. Nepomuk – as KDE project – is a RDF database and API that stores information about and the relations between almost everything that exists and happens on your computer. As so, it stores metadata about files, your projects (although this part is still in heavy development) and much more. Besides its basic services which are responsible for storing and manipulating records in the database, Nepomuk provides user-oriented services. The most well-known is Strigi. This service indexes all your files on your system, extracts all available information from them and store in Nepomuk. However, Strigi:

  1. Usually extracts information only from one file in one step. It will not create a relation between a video file and subtitle if the video is on your USB flash drive and the subtitles are on the network drive.
  2. Extracts information from files only. Strigi doesn't check if information is valid from the user's point of view. It will not complain about a music file that has incompatible author and name parameters set (like Mozart, 'In the Hall of the Mountain King').

The main idea of the Nepomuk Web Extractor Service is to automatically retrieve and correct as much information as possible for all resources in the Nepomuk database using some external databases or existing relations and data in Nepomuk itself as sources.

Nepomuk Web Extractor

There are some issues which led to the creation of the Nepomuk Web Extractor:

  1. There are many tasks that can be done automatically, yet currently they still require some manual intervention. What about automatically linking subtitles files to the appropriate video files no matter where they are actually stored and what their names are? Right now most of the current players pick up subtitles only from the folder where video file is located and only if the naming schemes of the video file and subtitle file match.
  2. File metadata may contain incorrect information, like in the aforementioned example 'Mozart, In the Hall of the Mountain King'. What about automatically correcting this metadata in Nepomuk and writing information back to the file?
  3. Nepomuk ontologies provide schemes for describing various resources. To mark a file as TV show, you should create a Nepomuk resource describing the whole TV series, then take the Nepomuk resource that describes this file, adjust it -mark it as TV show, set its episode number, season number, optionally overview and then link this adjusted resource to the newly created TV series resource and link the TV series resource back to this resource. Why should you do this all manually, if there is a database and all this information can be automatically retrieved after parsing file names?

Nepomuk Web Extractor main ideas

As with any system that tries to do something automatically and to be 'smart' we have to solve some common issues, like 'What if user provides incorrect source data' or 'What if information in external source is incorrect'? How should we extract information for a music file with metadata like 'Mozart, In the Hall of the Mountain King'? Is it 'Mozart, Requiem', or 'Grieg, In the Hall of the Mountain King'? How should we choose between these variants and more importantly, should we try to choose, or simply refuse to parse this file untill more information will be supplied?

Trying to solve these questions, the following guidelines and system design were created:

  1. The system assumes that metadata about a file contains more correct information then incorrect.
  2. The system assumes that information retrieved from external data sources is the more correct if more external data sources report it as correct. E.g. if OpenStreetMap and Google Maps told us that X == A, and Bing Maps told us that X == B, then variant X == A (two votes against one vote) will be chosen. It should be noted that the real system for choosing between different variants is more complex that described above. The variant X==B may be chosen if e.g. Bing Maps told us that it is 'absolutely sure that X==B', and OSM and GM told only 'probably X==A'.
  3. 'It is better to not supply information at all rather then to supply wrong information'. That is because suppling wrong information may lead to the situation when metadata about resources will contain more incorrect info than correct info, and that leads to more incorrect information supplied to other connected resources and so on, until most information about this resource, and the resources connected to it will become incorrect.


The power of Nepomuk Web Extractor is in its plugins. I have tried to provide API's which are as convenient as possible for the (future) plugin creators as I can. Generally speaking, if you don't need something extraordinary, there is a special script that you may run and it will create a template for your plugin. After that you should implement a method responsible for extracting info from your source and most likely a method for reading configuration. If you need something special, then you should still run a script, but will have to do more changes. More info about plugin creation is (will be) available in the wiki.

This is the list of available plugins:
  1. An autotag plugin which assigns a tag if a file name matches a regular expression.
  2. A TheTVDB plugin (written by Sebastian Trueg) can extract info from website.
  3. The Tesseract plugin for analyzing images using OCR and extracting text from it. This plugin is currently lost somewhere in the repository, but I hope I will find it back.

This is unfortunately a very small amount. There are a lot of ideas for plugins, but we need more developers.

Plans for the future

Although the TODO list is big, the main goals for the future are:

  1. More plugins. Much more plugins. That is one of the most important issues.
  2. A more convenient API for the creation of plugins. Currently, plugins must be implemented in C++. I think that the ability to write them in scripting languages like Python will make the process of plugin creation easier. And plugins created with scripting languages can be distributed via GetHotNewStuff.
  3. While moving to DMS some functionality was lost. Currently it is not possible to replace one piece of information with another, so there is no way to fix errors with the Web Extractor. I hope I will be able to restore this ability in the near future.

Fix cleanup of cache-model

Directly deleting the cache model and leaving a reference in the view
is dangerous as the related bugreport shows. I'm not sure why there was
an event sent out to the selectionmodel, but it seems this happens already
when deleting the model. The event however is delivered later on in the
nested event-loop from the kmessagebox and at that point the selectionmodel
is already gone.

So disconnect the selectionmodel properly, explicitly remove the model
from the view and let the cache model alive for one round of

Andreas Pakulat committed changes in [kdevelop] projectmanagers/cmake/settings/cmakepreferences.cpp:

Fix creation of builddirs with custom cmake args

This should fix all open problems configuring new builddirs and changing
stuff in the builddir-creation dialog. It takes the values from the dialog
and explicitly initializes the kconfigskeleton items from them. This
ensures the values end up in the config file and we don't loose things
set in the dialog.

Also necessary for this is to pre-initialize the local variables in save
so that there's no empty stuff written out in case no model has been
created yet.

Last add a TODO about the possibility to have different builddirs with
different configs and not being able to re-run cmake from scratch for
them, but thats something for another time. Probably would be useful to
completely drop the kconfig-skeleton stuff since its not used anyway
by the kcm and would make it more explicit that the module has to keep
track of these things manually.

tag, the deleteTag() function would assert as m_deleteCandidate was 0

m_deleteCandidate is now set to next tag after deletion of a tag.

the region closes.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace] /:

Drop direct rendering setting

The advanced compositing option "direct rendering" could only
correctly be honored in the case of proprietary NVIDIA drivers.
In all other cases playing with the setting was most likely
harmful as it could result in inconsistent states and the
option not to be honored at all.

This patch resolves this issue by moving the detection whether
to use a direct rendering context completely into the hands of
the set environment variables or the helper program:
* if LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT is set, we use an indirect context
* if KWIN_DIRECT_GL is set, we use a direct context
* if none of the two are set, we use the helper program, if it
returns 0 we create a direct context, otherwise we set
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT and create an indirect context

If a user really wants to influence the behavior the
environment variables can be used.

Reload when lines were deleted in the file, instead of just..not.

Seek the stream back to 0 when we get a dirty notifier and there's no
more data. It's *probably* because there were deleted lines. It at least
works well for this particular scenario. I believe that's the best way
to "go backwards" in terms of a file buffer.

modify :s check to avoid looping forever

the substitute command “s/$/x/g” would loop forever. it makes no sense to
add the ‘g’ at the end of a substitutions that replaces at EOL, but for
many this is appended out of habit.

the check at the end of the replacement code makes sure that the
replacement column is within the line, but since one replacement has
already been done, and $/EOL is the last possible position where a
replacement can happen, it makes no sense that the new start column is
equal to the line length (i.e. after the line) either.

the test should therefore be against line length minus one.

Move control of desktop layout from pager to KWin

The desktop layout (number of rows) should be
controlled by the window manager as it is also
responsible for the number of desktops and the
names of them.

The setting for the rows is moved from the pager
UI to the virtual desktops KCM. The desktop layout
is set when KWin starts and updated by the KCM.

With this change there is no process claiming the
manager selection for pager any more. This means
the KDE Plasma Workspaces are no longer compliant
to the complete section of _NET_DESKTOP_LAYOUT in
the EWMH.

Fix up the "no game is displayed" break in the player applications

The issue was that there were no players displayed inside the simple qt and
kdeplayer application. It happened because of the unexpected directory path
return value from the directoryprovider.

It is now fixed by a simple modification by using the prefix install and the
directory separator for making sure. Tested properly on Linux, Windows and
Harmattan. It works fine.

You can find more information about it at the previous CPack patches, especially
this one: 422b53

Also, there was a discussion and long debugging session prior to that on the
cmake mailing list where I have been told about it:
"So the solution begins with DOT NOT USE ABSOLUTE INSTALL PATH,
give it a try and tell us how it goes."

CPack/NSIS: Handle the Windows Registry properly

1) There was a CPACK_PACKAGE_VENDOR addition since without that, CPack generated
a quite general name in the Windows Registry, like "Humanity". It is first of
all, not really talkative, second it can collide with other things if someone
else leaves it empty as well.

2) There was a registry key addition with the feasible Gluon string and version
number according to the GLUON_VERSION_STRING, thus it is not hard coded and

3) On the way I fixed up a third line since we are using lower letters for the

The result is that, we now have a proper Gluon entry if you open up your
registry by running the "regedit" command. It is something like
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\DOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Gluon\Gluon 0.72.0\(Default).
That way we can access to the install path which was a bit tricky to manage it
first since it is straight-forward in case of cmake with in the file, like:

After all, the next step is to make the game list and other installation prefix
related things work on Windows as well!

Laszlo Papp committed changes in [gluon] /:

Fix the filter issue of the file open dialog operation

The wrong pattern was used for filtering meaning that Windows users, for
instance, could not open the game projects manually up properly, but it now
works with this fix. The usage is now similar what other applications use and
what the Qt documentation provides as an example.

Also, the filter was not translatable which is now fixed in step since it does
not mean another line modification, just a "tr" addition to the Qt player and
"i18n" addition to the kde player.

Note: The games are not listed inside the players and no game can be played
right now even by starting it from command line with the proper arguments. This

Merged very early alpha-version of Dolphin 2.0

Dolphin 2.0 will get a new view-engine with the
following improvements:
- Better performance
- Animated transitions
- No clipped filenames due to dynamic item-sizes
- Grouping support for all view-modes
- Non-rectangular selection areas
- Simplified code for better maintenance

More details will be provided in a blog-entry during
the next days.

Please note that the code is in a very
early alpha-stage and although the most tricky parts
have been implemented already very basic things like
drag and drop or selections have not been pushed yet.
Those things are rather trivial to implement but this
still will take some time.

Try to call desktopRezie once intead of doing it in all XRandR events.

When a screen is disconnected XRandR emits 3 events instead of just one:
1-Disconnected screen resized
2-Disconnected screen moved
3-Disconnected screen removed

Before this commit we were calling desktopResize on each event which
between other things restart the composite (not necessarily the faster
thing to do...).

So, in order to be able to call desktopResize only once, now we're
handling individually each event, when one of them happens a QTimer is
started/restarted on each event and desktopResized is called owhen

The current interval is 100msec

Save the PVPShape information as a 'rect' element in the SVG doc.
It will store the transformation, size and id.

Parse the 'rect' element which has 'ViewPort' in its id as a PVPShape. Add the size, position to it.
Parse an element with tag 'calligra:frame'. Search for the shape in the list of shapes with name as the refId of this frame.
Add the animation information contained in this frame element to the shape.

When the PVPShape is parsed, it won't be painted as a rectangle at all. It has its own paint method!

Volker Krause committed changes in [kdepim] /:

Add asynchronous Nepomuk resource retriever.

It seems that our poor performance under high I/O load is mainly caused by
using the synchronous Nepomuk API and Nepomuk using ionice due to FS
indexing. We use the synchronous API in quite a few places unfortunately,
but I've found only three on hot paths so far. This contains the fix for
the first one (action status updates in KMail), the other two are in the
message list (also observable by poor initial scrolling performance).

Dmitry Kazakov committed changes in [calligra/krita_strokes_framework_kazakov] /:

A huge patch

There are two changes:
1) See:

Split the functionality of KisUndoAdapter into two classes:
KisUndoStore and KisUndoAdapter. The former one works as an
interface to an external storage of the undo information:
undo stack, KoDocument, /dev/null. The latter one defines the
behavior of the system when someone wants to add a command. There
are three variants:
1) KisSurrogateUndoAdapter -- saves commands directly to the
internal stack. Used for wrapping around legacy code into
a single command.
2) KisLegacyUndoAdapter -- blocks the strokes and updates queue,
and then adds the command to a store
3) KisPostExecutionUndoAdapter -- used by the strokes. It doesn't
call redo() when you add a command. It is assumed, that you have
already executed the command yourself and now just notify
the system about it. Warning: it doesn't inherit KisUndoAdapter
because it doesn't fit the contract of this class. And, more
important, KisTransaction should work differently with this class.
2) The ownership on the KisUndoStore (that substituted KisUndoAdapter
in the document's code) now belongs to the image. It means that
KisDoc2::createUndoStore() is just a factory method, the document
doesn't store the undo store itself.
