Because Gnome is the default desktop environment of Ubuntu, the most people use it. What can we do again that? No, I don’t think that everyone should use KDE and Kubuntu; I think we have to promote them more. at this time there is a poll at the site of the hungarian LoCo: as you can see, about 13 times more people use Ubuntu than Kubuntu. Because of that mostly they talk about Ubuntu, they write about Ubuntu, etc. How can we solve that? First, we have to help everybody who ask us for help to use Kubuntu. This seems to be easy, but unfortunately sometimes we can’t solve the problems. However, we have to write as often as we can about Kubuntu, KDE, everything related to them. Some example (sorry, all of these all hungarian:

And this is only the Hungarian LoCo site. Sometimes I write articles at also, but my priority is the LoCo site. I think I wrote everything, see you later!


KDE 4.3.4 „Cold”

Yesterday I enabled the karmic-backports repository to install KDE SC 4.3.4. The upgrade went fine except the kde-l10n-hu package: it conflicted with the kde-i18n-hu package (it’s a known problem, there are some bugreport on Launchpad), this affects all kde-i18n-* package. So if you want to upgrade your KDE to 4.3.4 from karmic-backports, first remove the kde-i18n-* package. There’s another issue when I watch videos with VLC: in fullscreen mode the XVideo output doesn’t hide the panel. At this moment I can’t find a workaround for it, however I’m not a Kubuntu developer, I would be happy to fix the kde-i18n-* bugs. So let’s go to #kubuntu-devel!

Hello World!

My name is Kristof Kiszel, I use ulysses__ (on Freenode) or Ulysses (on forums and Launchpad) as nickname. I use Ubuntu since 7.10, but I switched to Kubuntu after several month, that was also Gutsy. After Jaunty released, I started to contribute to Ubuntu and Kubuntu. First time I wrote community documentations for the Hungarian Documentation team, when the translation of Karmic opened, I started to work on it. I’ve translated a big part of the Kubuntu system documentations, reported some bugs, and reviewed it on the Ubuntu GlobalJam. On 16th December 2009 I became a Kubuntu member. Now my goal is to make Kubuntu 10.04 better.
