This Week...

Marble gets first version of FlightGear position provider. KPhotoAlbum saves the video length in a database; search for the length is also possible. KWebkitParts gets an option that allows the user to disable the internal handling of flash and java applets. KDE-PIM extends the notes class, there are some new properties. Calligra allows dragging of selected text, it works with drag and drop too. Amarok can write album covers to iPods and USB Mass Storage devices; changes in cover art reading and writing. Solid adds proper support for volumes, storage disks and storage access, which was not working on Windows. Soprano uses non-Qt local socket communication on Unix systems.
KDE-Accessibility activity by Frederik Gladhorn

Hello dear KDE Commit Digest reader,

I was asked to talk a bit about what's happening when it comes to KDE and accessibility at the moment, something I'm happy to do. For me KDE is about inclusiveness and enabling people to use technology. Don't think this doesn't affect you, it's a broad subject and everyone benefits in some way.

Accessibility is a broad term. In the context of computer technology, it generally means giving as many people the ability to use the technology as possible. Because people are so different, there is of course not one solution for all. We aim therefore to cover a broad spectrum of use cases. Many issues that severely impact computer usage are, of course, visual or motorical difficulties. Hearing problems can be another barrier. For KDE this means following the human interface guidelines, which ensure for example that users can adjust font sizes or the contrast of color schemes. Sometimes more advanced solutions are needed, such as using a screen reader for blind users.

And hey, this is the commit digest, I bet you're itching to get your hands onto some code, right? Join us and dive into a fun community effort, what's stopping you? We have a growing and ever more active team now, meeting in #kde-accessibility on irc (freenode). The mailing list is of course another good point of contact: kde-accessibility

For developers to get started, I wrote a few points that you can check in order to make your application usable by as many people as possible: checklist

Since this is the first post about accessibility here, I'd like to mention what's currently going on. There are several areas where we're improving, one great newcomer is of course Simon, an application that lets you control your computer via speech. I'll for now refer you to the Simon blog for the latest news.

The other big thing going on is that qt-at-spi has seen many improvements. Now I don't expect everyone to know what qt-at-spi is... and that's the way it should be. Qt-at-spi is a plugin for Qt, that exposes information about what is on screen via the AT-SPI api that the Gnome accessibility tools use. After some research and help from the great Gnome accessibility team, I spent some time during the last year to get this plugin into shape. It exposes semantics about applications so that Assistive Technologies (ATs) use the information to support the user. One classical example is a screen reader. Screen readers are programs that "read" the user interface so that people that are blind can use applications.

Orca from Gnome now works to some degree with KDE applications thanks to the plugin. Now we reached a phase where more and more feedback from users benefiting from this comes in and we can start polishing the experience. As you can imagine, the mouse is not all that helpful when you cannot see where the pointer is, therefor having a working keyboard interface to our applications is important.

Let's just imagine a dialog with an OK and Cancel button. With the accessibility tools, the screen reader "knows" that there is a button with label "OK" at this position. It can check the state and find out that it's currently focused. When you press the tab key, the focus moves over to the "Cancel" button. Now the screen reader gets a notification on focus changes and will read "Cancel - Button" for example. If you want to see how that is done, you can of course read the Qt sources and the qt-at-spi plugin sources. There's lots to do, for an easy starter, adding more unit tests would be a good idea. Get the code here: qtsami, there are still many low hanging fruits as well as tricky issues to be tackled.

But that's not all that's happening in accessibility land currently: we have summer of code projects for Simon and one to improve KMag. Let me talk about KMag in this context. When using a magnifier, it's still important to know where the focus is. Since we don't have focus follows mind (link) yet, we need to figure out where the focus is at. Guess what - we're using AT- SPI to do that. Amandeep Singh is working with Sebastian Sauer to make the pieces fit together. In order to let not only KMag benefit from the work, the changes are actually done in a client side AT-SPI library for Qt/KDE applications. You can follow the progress here: libkdeaccessibilityclient and in KMag of course.

Now if you're as excited about this all and want to read more (you know you do!), here are some more helpful links:

Add workaround for loading partial circles from OO

When saving a partion circle/ellipse LO/OO saved the svg:width, svg:height
svg:x and svg:y as there would be a full circle. However according to ODF the
values should be dervived from the bounding box of the displayed shape.

This fixes the problem that the circles in the file attached to the bugreport are displayed
correctly.

OK to backport?

Thorsten Zachmann committed changes in [calligra] libs/kotext/styles/KoListLevelProperties.cpp:

Add collection to datacenters so images are saved

If there was no image in the document the image bullets where not saved as the image collection
was not added to the data centers and therefore the images where not saved. This fixes that by
adding the image collection to the datacenters.
Reorder the way the attributes are added. They need to be added before a child element is added
therefore they are moved up.
Parts of the patch are provided by gopalK.

Is it ok to include KoImageData_p.h in a lib of our own code or should we find a different solution?

This patch solves the problem that only shapes with a fill/background
and/or a stroke can have a shadow. This was bad for the picture shape

This fixes the problem that the shape in bug 260226 is shown as big as it should.

The actual problem described in the bug report had already be fixed.

Fix drag & drop in playlist layout editor, filter editor etc. in non-english locales

The implementation relies on custom mime-type specified in .ui files.
However, the strings weren't marked as non-translatable, so language
teams that decided to translate application/x-amarok-tag-token effectively
broke drag & drop for their users. (the blame goes to Amarok team, of
course)

QtGroupingProxy: don't re-enter beginInsertRows() (crashfix)

This should fix a nasty crash that was only reproducible when Qt was
build with debugging assertions enabled. (and perhaps only if you have
empty playlist providers) The fix is based on an assumption that
addSourceRow() in QtGroupingProxy is only called from:

a) buildTree(), which encompasses it in {begin/end}ResetModel()
b) modelRowsInserted(), but that should be always preceeded by
modelRowsAboutToBeInserted() that calls beginInsertRows()

Bart, this is largely your code, is this correct?

IpodCollection: more robust iPhone (and the like) mounting

CHANGES:
* determined mount-point is checked first for some well-known
directories to detect whether iPhone is already connected
* detailed debugging information is shown to the user in details tab
of a sorry dialog upon failure -> no need to run amarok with --debug
* output of the called commands is now shown in the details too to aid
debugging
* the code is significantly refactored to eliminate convoluted logic

This is not the final solution of course - that would be using solid to
do all the dirty job, and thanks to work on fuse backed this may one
day become true.

I'd like to thank avlas for testing as seen on my blog post [1].

with which backend KWin is currently using. So if e.g. OpenGL
is used and an effect requires OpenGL 2 a detailed error

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

Delay creation of EffectFrames till needed

Creating an EffectFrame requires I/O which takes on my system
during testing between 10 and 40 msec. Also it needs a little
bit of memory.

This changes moves out the creation of EffectFrames at Effect
load till the Effect actually needs the EffectFrame. E.g. if a
user does not filter in PresentWindows there is no need to ever
create it.

BoxSwitch effect is ignored as it should be dropped for 4.9.

Non-Qt local socket communication on Unix systems.

The new class Socket handles thread-safe unix communication now. On
windows systems the old code is used.
The server code still uses the QLocalSocket class since each connection
has its own thread anyway. Porting is not as important.

This allows us to use a single thread on the client side and avoiding all
that ugly and error-prone code that tries to maintain one socket per
client thread.
The result is less crashes, lower resource consumption and cleaner code
(not counting the #ifdefs).
