Syncing phones to KDE

Dear lazy web, 2 questions:

Question 1: as I have just recently bough a Nokia E65 (hmmmmm….) I would like to know how to sync the contacts and appointments to Kontact. Email is not interesting (IMAP/GMail is going it already). Contacts and appintments/TODO is what I need. The system is KUbuntu 7.10, please don't ask me to install anything outside the repositories.

Question 2: it would be cool if the phone can be used as bluetooth mouse. Installing a small Java application on the phone is quite OK by me.

thanks מגניב


We broke another one

Well, an old friend of mine has been broken. Sweet, one person less to world domination… מגניבצוחקזעוףמגניבבוכהפדיחההכסף מדברמוציא לשוןצוחקצוחק


MSameer: did you upgrade to the version of GNome in which they (finally) use the real DPI collected from X instead of hard coded 92…? this might explain why you see small fonts.


KDE 4.0 is out

KDE 4.0 is out. Thanks to all the people who had to do anything with it, because of you, the world is a better place now :) I would like to specially thank TSDgeo on his great job coordinating the announcement. He did an excellent job maintaining 24 different teams, and their translation.

Here in Israel, there seems to be a discussion about making a KDE 4.0.0 release party, piggy bagging the monthly Ubuntu on the grass event, that some Ubuntu folks have been organizing in the last months. Don't count in seeing me there, but I assume other geeks^H^H^Hl inux users will be there… 😉


Could be worse

KDE4 to be released this week, will be the first KDE to exclude official Hebrew translations, since KDE 2.2 (but even KDE 1.1.4 had Hebrew translations). This is only because there is no translation team.

I have asked on local forums for someone to fill in the job, and finally when some try to send me some translations, my KDE4 installation is so borked it does not boot. Then, I am too lazy to fix it. Then I am having problems installing the translations. (to everyone in kde-i18n-doc, sorry for beeing a n00b).

Eventually I managed to fix it (thanks to Chusslove Illich, Часлав Илић), and install the translations available on the SVN. Yes, the statistics are to low to be part of KDE4.0.0, but some things do work. So the following screen shots, are the result of me sitting on my ass for 2 years and doing nothing for KDE4. Pretty good job :)


This is dollphin 4, running in hebrew. Yay!


Kate is still slightly translated. Look at the tree views, they are correct finally!


and even systemsettings is slightly translated. don't know how, who cares! even searching is working.


Shai, Ran and Ofer, these screen shots are dedicated to you! Don't worry, I did not forget, I am just lazy :)

I would like to say thanks to all the developers which made this possible, and a happy new year to all!
