KDE adds support for Mozilla
The "Kecko Team" has announced a port of Gecko, Mozilla's rendering engine, to Qt and KDE, by bringing it in as a KPart. Done as part of the week-long aKademy Conference, the hackfest was completed in a mere four days.

This will allow Konqueror users to use either the KHTML or Gecko renderering engine in their browser. A browser's engine is the main component that handles the rendering of a page itself. This allows for projects to use existing code and build different applications around it.

*NIX - UNIX: Windows Defectors: Upgrading a KDE Installation to Version 3.3
Windows users are a picky bunch. We expect to double-click on an icon, usually "setup.exe", and everything works automagically. The logic of what to uninstall, what to install, and what questions need to be asked of the person doing the installation, are all built into the process. With KDE, there's no such thing. Apparently, nobody feels it's needed, despite the multitude of different packages which must be installed (and uninstalled) in a particular order.

*NIX - UNIX: HP Delivers KDE on Laptops
Hewlett-Packard made quite a splash when they announced that they are offering Linux on the nx5000, one of the latest HP laptop models. HP also sponsored aKademy, the KDE Community World Summit as a Platinum sponsor. This included a loan of 24 laptops for usage in the tutorial rooms as well as a special deal for KDE contributors to buy the nx5000 model at a reduced price. The aKademy press team arranged a meeting with Thomas Schneller, Manager Software R&D and asked him about this venture from HP.

*NIX - UNIX: Linux group aims for Google-like search
Developers of KDE have announced plans to simplify searching for files on the open-source Linux desktop environment by adding a Google-style search feature.

Aaron Seigo, a KDE developer, said the community has already been discussing and writing code for the new search engine at the KDE Community World Summit, which is taking place in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

Report from the KDE World Summit
The board also mentioned, bizarrely, that they, and by extension the whole of the KDE Project, are under investigation by the German financial authorities. Apparently, a recent surge in undocumented donations via PayPal, to the tune of € 5000 in one month, raised suspicions in the authorities at a time when KDE e.V. is trying to achieve tax-free status in Germany.

*NIX - UNIX: KDE: Putting Linux on the Desktop
Recently, HP, Red Hat and Novell took a big leap and started pushing Linux for the desktop in enterprise environments. However, desktop software such as KDE and GNOME deserve just as much credit as the distributors of Linux.

"Unlike Microsoft Windows, Linux doesn't actually mean you get a desktop (a.k.a. 'windows' environment). A more accurate term is 'X Windows environment.'

gDesklets make Gnome Pretty
2 years ago I installed my first Linux distro, Red Hat, and stayed with them. Since KDE has been described as eye candy, and GNOME as flat, I'll tell you how to make your GNOME beat both KDE and Mac OS X in looks.

gDesklets is a system that sits on top of your GNOME, providing applets on your desktop. I am not on expert on how gDesklets work, but I've found out that you'll need Python packages installed...

KDE 3.2 - A Quick Review
Last week, I finally took the time to upgrade to the fully released KDE 3.2 desktop system. I was a little nervous at first because, as many of the devs online can tell you, I really don't know Linux that well.

That means that if something goes wrong, I usually freak out, go "Oh my God", and panic like never before. Then they usually have to help me get through the crisis and it always ends up being something fairly simple and stupid that I did myself.

*NIX - UNIX: UserLinux Will Support KDE
Troll Tech uses dual licensing as a revenue strategy. They have a right to do so, and they are entirely within the ethos of the free software community in doing so.

I already have a customer asking for Perens LLC to provide commercial support for KDE on the UserLinux platform. And we will do so, even though KDE is not the chosen GUI of the UserLinux project...

Win - MS: 'Microsoft is Afraid,' Says KDE's Staikos
'I was stunned to see executives from Fortune 500 companies coming by for a demo of KDE, saying that it was their favorite desktop and that they hope that we continue to do such a good job so they can adopt KDE for desktop deployments in the future,' Staikos continues.

'I was most, and least, surprised by one class of visitor though,' he adds. 'We had regular visits from Microsoft employees! They wanted demos of KDE, to see how it works and what we have.
