Boomaga 0.5.0 (KDE Printing)

Mon, 2014/03/31 - 5:41pm
ThumbnailBoomaga 0.5.0
(KDE Printing)
Boomaga (BOOklet MAnager) is a virtual printer for viewing a document before printing it out using the physical printer.

The program is very simple to work with. Running any program, click “print” and select “Boomaga” to see in several seconds (CUPS takes some time to respond) the Boomaga window open. If you print out one more document, it gets added to the previous one, and you can also print them out as one.

Regardless of whether your printer supports duplex printing or not, you would be able to easily print on both sides of the sheet. If your printer does not support duplex printing, point this out in the settings, and Booklet would ask you to turn over the pages half way through printing your document.

The program can also help you get your documents prepared a bit before printing. At this stage Boomaga makes it possible to:

* Paste several documents together.
* Print several pages on one sheet.
* 1, 2, 4, 8 pages per sheet
* Booklet. Folding the sheets in two, you’ll get a book.

Version 0.5.0

* You can export jobs as PDF.
* Updated translations
* Some minor fixes

Version 0.4.0

* You can delete pages, and undo this deletion.
* You can insert blank pages
* You can rename job
* New Icons for the program (thanks Famo)
* Qt5 support
* Instead poppler-qt boomaga use poppler-cpp
* Updated translations
* And lots of other minor fixes

Version 0.3.0
* Dramatically improved performance.
* Now the program uses PDF as an internal format.
* Many bugfixes

Py Text Monitor 1.5.3 (Plasmoid Script)

Thu, 2014/03/27 - 4:23pm
ThumbnailPy Text Monitor 1.5.3
(Plasmoid Script)
PyTextMonitor is a minimalistic Plasmoid script written on Python2. It looks like widgets in awesome-wm. It is also easy to configure. I think that this can be considered as fork TextMon.

For edited output you must open Settings window and setup output format in lines:
label "$time" - time in default format
label "$isotime" - time in iso format
label "$shorttime" - time in short format
label "$longtime" - time in long format
label "$uptime" - uptime, ---d--h--m
label "$cpu" - total load cpu, %
label "$ccpu" - load CPU for each core, %
label "$cpucl" - average cpu clock, MHz
label "$ccpucl" - cpu clock for each core, MHz
label "$temp" - average temperature in system
label "$gpu" - GPU usage, %. `aticonfig` or `nvidia-smi` must be installed
label "$gputemp" - GPU temperature. `aticonfig` or `nvidia-smi` must be installed
label "$mem" - usage memory, %
label "$memmb" - usage memory, MB
label "$swap" - swap, %
label "$swapmb" - swap, MB
label "@@/@@" (in hdd label) - mount point ('/' in example) usage, %. Separator for mount points list is ';', for example "@@/;/home;/mnt/global@@"
label "@@/dev/sda@@" (in hddtemp label) - HDD ('/dev/sda' in example) temperature. `hddtemp` must be installed
label "$net" - download and upload speed, KB/s. You may also specify the number of devices (1 or 2) - without their names. And you may specify network device: something like @@eth0@@
label "$netdev" - current network device
label "$bat" - battery charge, %. Battery device may be set below. File ("/sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/capacity" by default) must contain only battery charge in percent
label "$ac" - status AC device. Return (*) if AC device is online or ( ) if offline. AC device may be set below. FIle ("/sys/class/power_supply/AC/online" by default) must contain '1' if AC is online
label "$album" - current song album. One of supported music players must be installed
label "$artist" - current song artist. One of supported music players must be installed
label "$progress" - current song progress. One of supported music players must be installed (mpd does not support yet)
label "$time" - current song duration. One of supported music players must be installed
label "$title" - current song title. One of supported music players must be installed

Cantata 1.3.3 (KDE Sound Application)

Tue, 2014/03/25 - 9:12pm
ThumbnailCantata 1.3.3
(KDE Sound Application)
Cantata is a (yet another!) client for the music player daemon (MPD). Originally started as a fork of QtMPC, the code is now *very* different. Cantata can be compiled with KDE support, or as a pure Qt4 application. The interface is very configurable - most views can be shown as either a list or tree structure.

Currently Cantata has the following views:

1. Library - sorted as Album Artist (or Artist if Album Artist not set), Album, and finally Track.
2. Albums - displays albums as icons, sorted by their title.
3. Folders - displays MPDs virtual filesystem. (This view is hidden by default)
4. Playlists
5. Dynamic - dynamic playlists
6. Streams - allows saving of internet radio URLs, searching for stations via TuneIn or ShoutCast, station listings from; Digitally Imported (+Sky, JazzRadio, RockRadio), TuneIn, IceCast, ShoutCast, SomaFM, etc.
7. Online - Jamendo, Magnatune, SoundCloud, and Podcasts
8. Devices - enables copying from/to USB-Mass-Storage (UMS) and MTP devices, and ripping AudioCDs

The sidebar has a context menu, allowing you to control its style and what items are shown.

Refer to, and, for further information.

1. If Cantata is started whilst an instance is also running, raise window of current instance. (Linux only fix)
2. Add song to playqueue from albums page when double-clicked.
3. Fix display of online-service track album-artist in copy dialog.
4. Ensure library is loaded the very first time Cantata is run (ie. after connected to MPD via initial settings wizard).
5. When song is updated in context view, abort any current network jobs.
6. Fix expand all / collapse all actions. Expand all will only expand 1 level for main browsers.
7. When reading lines from user mpd.conf file, read as utf-8.
8. Reset devices and online-services models when artist-view cover size changes.
9. If downloading online-service track listing fails, then stop loader and show error.
10. Use new location of Jamendo DB listing.

1. In cover/artist dialog, when attempting to save an image into Cantata's cache folder - ensure the 'covers' sub-folder is created.
2. When saving artist image from cover dialog, if set to save in MPD folder and song's path does not have 2 folder elements then save in cache folder. Cantata will only save artist images, and backdrops, in MPD folder if the folder structure is (e.g.) Artist/Album/Track.mp3
3. Use case-insensitive sort of folder view items when adding to playqueue.
4. When determining the 'basic' artist of a track, if albumartist is set and artist is not, then use albumartist.
5. For the web-links in the context view, replace ampersand and question mark characters in artist names with the relevant URL encoding.
6. Use CMake to locate X11 libraries and headers.
7. Set minimum size for initial settings wizard.
8. If buddy of a checkbox or radio is clicked, then toggle check or radio.
9. Disable context-view cancel actions until a job is created.
10. When searching models, also search composer field.
11. Fix enabling of "Initially collapse albums" in playlists settings tab.
12. Fix grouped playlist view initial state when set to initially collapse albums.
13. Fix calculating size of song files when copying off a device that has been previously scanned, and its contents cached.
14. When copying from a CD, check that we have enough space for track that was encoded with a 1:18 ratio. Just a sanity check really.
15. Fix song notification mem-leak (Linux only).
16. When transitioning between backdrops in cover view, draw old at correct position.
17. Dont load library twice at start-up when cache has been deleted current tab is artists or albums.

1. Fix collapsed context-view selector buttons text when using a dark background.
2. Apply some Fedora patches.
3. Fix MPD HTTP stream playback.
4. Fix painting of Gtk thin scrollbar style on comboboxes.
5. When waiting for replies from MPD, use Qt's standard timeout value of 30s. While the socket is still connected, Cantata will wait up to 4 times the timeout value. Therefore, the actual timeout has increased to 2minutes!
6. If a sidebar view has focus, but sidebar is collapsed, then find action should activate playqueue search widget.
7. FreeBSD 10 compile fixes.
8. Fix scaling of context view background when size of view changes.
9. Elide text of context view selector buttons, if insufficient space.
10. Only show mopidy note in copy/remove dialog if connected to mopidy.
11. Fix broken en_GB translation.
12. Fix folder-view path parsing. If two folders only differed in the last character then Cantata would have placed the contents of the second into the listing of the first.
13. Explicitly link to pthread.
14. Do not allow 'auto-hide sidebar' and 'playqueue in sidebar' to be active at the same time.
1. Fix duplicate translations - causes KDE builds to fail.

Main new features in this release:
1. Basic undo/redo for playqueue.
2. Search tab - searches performed via MPD. This tab is hidden by default.
3. Optionally cache scaled covers, to improve loading of albums view. (Displaying of covers should be faster after 1st run, when the scaled contents are saved)
4. Only start internal HTTP server when required, and stop after last non-MPD track removed from playqueue.
5. If listallinfo fails then use lsinfo recursively to retrieve the music collection. listallinfo requires more memory with MPD 0.18, and has been reported to fail for large collections.
6. Cache folder listing (as per music collection), if folders view is used.
7. Better support for Mopidy (requires Mopidy 0.18, or newer)

j2ds 0.3 (KDE Sound Application)

Sun, 2014/03/23 - 12:59pm
Thumbnailj2ds 0.3
(KDE Sound Application)
jd2s is a simple script I created to streamline the process of changing the audio device you wish to use for playback when running JACK2 under GNU/Linux. j2ds currently only supports switching between ALSA devices. I don\'t have access to a FireWire audio device so I am unable to test FFADO support but it would be a nice feature to have.

I own multiple USB audio devices which I switch between multiple times a day. That\'s too much clicking under Cadence currently so j2ds was born!

I use j2ds in conjuntion with Cadence to control JACK2. I would like to see this type of feature included in the main window of Cadence eventually but I\'d first need to convince falkTX that its not just me who very frequently changes JACK output devices. Another potential Cadence integration issue is that this script only works with JACK2 and Cadence seems to be moving towards JACK1 which doesn\'t have the \'switch master\' command that this script uses.

j2ds requires JACK2 and kdialog to run. Save the script into a file called and make it executable

chmod +x

The script can give errors in the terminal and may not quit when \'Cancel\' is pushed if you run it without making it executable.

0.3 - 21st Feb 2014

* j2ds checks JACK is running when you launch it now

0.2 -20th Feb 2014

Thumbnaildolphin patch autoplay on video\aud file 4.12.3
(KDE Filemanager)

this works for me , i have checked on ogv and webm it should work for other files if you have codecs installed .

any insult is welcomed


well i was missing to much this feature that there was on kde 3.x so i finally did it.

FINALLY RUN DOLPHIN WITHOUT INSTALL IT so this is perfect to test it.

if you wish install you need to do sudo make install in the directory build


for debian
sudo apt-get build-dep kde-baseapps



then run ./patchdolphin

NOTE THIS WILL NOT OVERWRITE YOUR ORIGINAL DOLPHIN IT WILL RUN FROM /TMP so if you reboot it will be erased. if you want install in your system do sudo make install in the build folder ...

cd /tmp/kde-baseapps-4.12.3/build

sudo make install

version for 4.12.3
