Did somebody get CardDav sync to work? I'm trying this since weeks and I can't wrap my head around what I am doing wrong.

Got myself a trackball after years of using mice and touchpads and even graphic tablets.  It is much more comfortable than any of the other input devices I've used so far. And I really tested a whole lot of products.

Hey, I am new to this community and the first thing I noticed was that there could be an additional category on the right. Something like "I've tested..." where people could post test reports. 

For Example: 
"I've tested Sygic Mobile Navigation Version 1.2.3.4 gamma and it works like a charm. Only thing you have to do is to >>WhatEver<<."

Maybe with a screenshot or a link to a video.

I think "articles" is a to common description and to mix something like "Jolla releases Update XXX" with "Tried App XXX Version YYY and it works." a bit odd.

Does this make sense to you?

Kabel BW beginnt mich zu nerven... Seit Mittwoch ständige Abbrüche von Telefon und Internet über Stunden! Störungs-Hotline kostet jedes mal 60 Cent für die Information das es eine Störung gibt, bereits daran gearbeitet wird, aber unklar ist wann, was behoben sein wird. Gnaaaaaaa!

Never thought I would ever change my mind about Gnome. I was a heavy user until version 3. From time to time I peaked into the development and if Gnome could attract me again. Well, here I am, sitting in front of my keyboard and typing this on a Gnome desktop based on a openSUSE installation. And surprise, I am using Gnome for four weeks now and I am really happy with it.

Sers Chamäleons,
gibt es eine Möglichkeit patterns zu deinstallieren, aber die dahinter liegenden packages zu behalten?
Patterns sind ja eine feine Sache bei der Installation, aber wenn man später ein Package los werden will, es aber in einem Pattern definiert ist, dann installiert es sich spätestens bei einem zypper dup wieder auf dem System. Ergo würde ich gerne nach der initialen Installation die Patterns wieder los werden, ohne das die hinterlegte Packages mit deinstalliert werden. Damit würde ich ja dann die Gruppierung sprengen, und somit Herr über jedes einzelne Package sein.

How Tos/Tips  - 
 
In this post I describe the way I use KDE to get my job as a software engineer done in a pleasant way.

My requirements on a DE

Personal
Using the DE for personal stuff I want it to show me some widgets like weather, news (RSS feeds), health of my system, updates, etc. So, the standard configuration of KDE in most distros fits perfectly and I just have to add some widgets here and there. I use KDE activities to be able to reflect tasks like watching movies, do stuff with pictures and playing a game. So, all boils down to some tweaking on the power settings and using different widgets for each task.

Job
Now here comes the tricky part. If I have to get my job done efficiently, I don’t want to get distracted. I don’t care if there is a software update. I am not interested in the current temperature out there and if it’s rainy or not. I don’t even want to know what time it is (I use the alarm of my cell phone to remind me to take a break or when it’s time to leave the office).
So, how to accomplish that? Unfortunately you can’t. Well, you can but not within the same session.
The problem is, activities are unable to control everything on your workspace. Yes, it can show and hide widgets, control some content, but activities can’t control your panels and their widgets. So, what to do about that. There are two ways I figured out so far.

1. Using ECMA scripts which are able to manipulate the widgets on desktops and panels.
2. Simply creating another user with a different configuration.

I tried to use the first method in the list. This does work but there is a drawback I can’t accept. You can’t deal with position changes of widgets in an easy way.

Let’s say you have the clock-widget on the right. You remove it by your script from the panel. Then you switch activities and another script adds the clock-widget again. This works, but the widget will not appear at the correct position. (I am aware of working with indexes, saving the old location somewhere and to load the location again to add the widget at the same position it was.)

But boy, that’s a hell of work for a simple task like getting the DE to just shut up.

So, I use a second session. All I have to do is switch users and there I have it. In this session my main panel only contains the activity switcher, the taskbar and some desktop icons. (I can’t use launchers in the panel as I would like to because they are also widgets....) So, there are my activities for Qt and Java coding. Widgets on here are completely different. For Qt stuff I am very interested in performance as it is for Java. So I have a couple of widgets showing me those informations. Also I have Yakuake as an autostart application. There is another activity for general development stuff like brainstorming, documentation and so on with desktop icons for applications I use for those tasks. Aaaaaaand that’s it. There is no clock anywhere, no distracting events, no eye-candy.

So, I got this fixed but I am still wondering If this could be done in another way using a single session? Any ideas?

+Michael De, that's why I don't use activities and rely solely on my virtual desktops to get my job done. Just like +Pierre Goldenbogen, I did this research in the past, read a lot about the activities paradigms only to be like 'naaaa, don't need it'.

Überschaubare Karte und vllt. auch genau deshalb immer gleich bleibende, gute Qualität. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis absolut gut.

Wer dem Koch bei seiner Arbeit zusehen, von Ihm gut beraten und vom Geschmack guter italienischer Küche verzaubert werden will, der sollte diesem Restorante einen Besuch abstatten. Aus Persönlicher Erfahrung weiß ich, dass die Speisen die hier auf den Tisch kommen auch privat gegessen werden. Die Karte ist ebenso überschaubar wie das Restorante an sich, aber weniger ist mehr, wie man so schön sagt.
