ThumbnailSocial Networks Visualizer 1.0
(KDE Scientific)
SocNetV is a cross-platform, user-friendly, graphical application for Social Networks Analysis and Visualisation, developed in C++ and the powerful Qt toolkit.

It helps you construct social networks (aka mathematical graphs) with a few clicks on a virtual canvas or load networks of various formats (GraphViz, GraphML, Adjacency, Pajek, UCINET, etc) and modify them, or compute basic network properties, such as density, diameter and distances (shortest path lengths), as well as more advanced structural statistics, such as node and network centralities i.e. closeness, betweeness, graph), clustering coefficient, PageRank etc.

SocNetV supports various layout algorithms (i.e. Spring-embedder, circular and in levels according to various centrality indexes) for meaningful visualisations.

Furthermore, it can create random networks (Erdos-Renyi, Watts-Strogatz, ring lattice, etc) with a few clicks or crawl a given website and create the "network of its links".

SocNetV is licensed under the GNU Public License version 3 (GPL3).

Requirements: To compile or install SocNetV version 1.x, you need Qt5 libraries.

Project page:

Version 1.0 - Feb 2014
Codename: "4 years later"
- First version in Qt5
- New Feature: PageRank calculation and layout
- New reference item: SRS Documentation by Vagelis Motesnitsalis

Distro Watcher 0.10 (Plasmoid Script)

Sun, 2014/02/23 - 11:43am
ThumbnailDistro Watcher 0.10
(Plasmoid Script)
The specific plasmoid displays the latest releases of Linux distributions and packages, as published in In order to retrieve the relative data, RSS feeds from distrowatch are being used.

The plasmoid consists of two distinct views; the first displaying Linux distributions, the second displaying packages. Switching between views can be accomplished using a KDE tab bar. By clicking to a distribution record, default browser opens distribution's homepage at By clicking to a package record, default browser opens package's homepage.

Moreover, users can click to the button in the bottom-right corner of the plasmoid so as to navigate to the distributions' list; favorites can be selected by just clicking to the relative button. Clicking to a distribution record, they are navigated (using the predefault web browser) to the relative distrowatch page. After selecting favorites, as soon as a new release of a favorite distribution is available, a notification pop-up is displayed. Notifications can be disabled using the relative configuration option.

The plasmoid has been written in QML and JavaScript.

Translated to: Greek, Spanish, Russian and Uzbek(Latin). If you would like to contribute to translations, visit the relative transifex project at

- Display depends on RSS feeds. If the relative RSS changes or it is unavailable, plasmoid display will be broken.
- Data fetching is performed every 15 minutes (default). Users can override the default value via "Distro Watcher Settings".
- If no Internet connection is available, no data will be displayed. Instead, a notification screen is displayed. As soon as network connectivity is re-established and the next fetching point is reached, data display is restored. Users are also able to click to the Reload button and request data to be fetched again.
- Icons have been downloaded from:
Credits go to the artist.

- KDE SC 4.10 or later
- QT 4.8.x

ThumbnailAudex 0.78
(KDE CD/DVD Software)
Audex is an audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on KDE 4.

Audex creates profiles for LAME, OGG Vorbis (oggenc), FLAC, MP4/M4A/AAC (faac) and RIFF WAVE. Please install your favorite encoder.
Of course for WAVE no external encoder is needed!
Beyond you can define custom profile, which means, that audex works together with commmand line encoders in general.

You can define extensive filename schemes. Please take a look at the documentation on the Audex webpage to see what's possible.

Some features are:
* Extracting with CDDA Paranoia. So you have quite perfect audio quality.
* Extracting and encoding run parallel.
* Extensive filename schemes.
* Filename editing with local and remote CDDB/FreeDB database.
* Metadata correction tools like capitalize etc.
* Multi-profile ripping (with one commandline-encoder per profile).
* Fetch covers from the internet and store them in the database.
* Create playlists, cover and template-based-info files in target directory.
* Creates ripping and encoding protocols.
* Transfer files with KDE KIO-Slaves.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: As LAME still can't handle unicode characters correct, Audex uses since version 0.73 eyeD3 for tagging mp3 files, if available. It is highly recommended to install eye3D on your system if you create mp3 files with Audex! **

Changelog 0.78 (Borken release)
* Fixed google cover search
* Embed cover in FLAC files
* Minor bugfixes, code modifications and typo fixes...

longene 1.0 rc2 (KDE System Tool)

Thu, 2014/02/20 - 12:30pm
longene 1.0 rc2
(KDE System Tool)
Linux Unified Kernel, also known as Longene[1] and informally as LUK, is an operating system kernel intended to be binary-compatible with application software and device drivers made for Microsoft Windows and Linux. In order to accomplish this, key features of the Windows kernel are ported to the Linux kernel.
Longene is written in the C programming language and is free and open source software. It is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPLv2).
First release candidate for 1.0 version was published on December 31, 2013.[2] As it uses wineserver for unimplemented functions, many Windows programs already work well.

translated by

Written on the occasion of release of Dragon 1.0

Decao Mao

After consideration , we decided to catch up before entering the 2014 release Longjing - that is compatible with Linux kernel version 1.0 , or else with the release of version 2.0 should huddled together , because we are in research and development Longjing 2.0 has also achieved good progress .

Longjing 1.0 mentioned here , refers to the Linux kernel Wineserver move to improve the operating efficiency of Wine . In recent years , Wine has made great progress , support for Windows applications on Linux kernel compatibility and stability has improved a lot . However , Wine service process through a user-space , namely Wineserver, to provide a virtual Windows system call interface , which was grafted to the Linux system calls, after all, is a bottleneck. So will Wineserver moved into the Linux kernel , closely integrated with the kernel , it can improve operational efficiency . However, if you simply put Wineserver into a kernel thread from a user -space process , so efficiency is very limited , because that is running Windows applications still frequent thread scheduling . Therefore, the Wineserver moved into the kernel , actually means removing Wineserver, it carried out the treatment to break up the process in the context of each user . In this regard, we have now to be able to release version 1.0 of the time. Maybe now we can not say who can run on Wine to run Windows applications can be as stable as the Longjing 1.0 , but for many in terms of software we tested did have a good run. In addition , Longjing 1.0 does not require patching the kernel , and can simply be installed as a module is loaded , which makes the deployment of Longjing simplified installation , and friends who want to try Longjing is very simple .

But Longjing version 1.0 with several previously released have a significantly different . Before we put on the Windows device driver compatibility very seriously , so trying to build a Linux kernel device driver to let Windows environment looked very much like the Windows kernel . This is a few years ago is very reasonable . For example , when Intel had the slogan \"decisive battle in the living room ,\" seems Wintel camp will accomplish a great deal in terms of smart home , and this is likely to mean that the diversification of Windows device drivers , because contact with a wide variety of devices . However , over the years , but the actual situation is that the \" decisive battle in the living room ,\" probably will not happen , because the AA (ARM + Android) architecture has become mainstream, and Android is running on the Linux kernel . In this case , consider the device driver compatible with Windows becomes redundant. So, have abandoned trying Longjing 1.0 compatible Windows device drivers in the kernel approach , it is no longer our goal. For the purposes of this aspect , Longjing 1.0 can be said to some extent in the return to Wine.

However , can cross- CPU architecture on both AA and machine architecture directly across operating systems running Windows applications ? Further , can the other non- x86 -based machines , and on Linux, Windows applications can be run directly ? This is much more interesting than the drive device is compatible with Windows x86 architecture in the Linux kernel . Imagine , if you can include a variety of Windows applications , including office software based on AA tablet coat , it is not very good? Admittedly now on Android also has many good software , but for some \" heavyweight\" people are still accustomed to those applications software for Windows. This is the Longjing 2.0 goals to be achieved .

To run Windows applications on x86 architecture binary image directly on the ARM architecture , obviously have to simulation (Emulation). Interestingly , Wine is \"Wine is not an Emulator (Wine Is Not an Emulator ) \" abbreviation, while based in Longjing Wine 2.0 , but that is to be simulated . But this is not a simple simulation simulation . We all know that QEMU is an open source emulator on Linux, QEMU can run on Wine , but you can try to know unacceptably slow . In fact , QEMU interpreted ( ie simulation ) x86 instruction user space ( including Wine instruction ) , it is just a case of system calls into the Linux kernel , where is the \"original\" running at full speed . General applications are running in the user space of time , less time to run into the kernel , so very slow. But if we can push it up the line to the Win API, if we could let one run Windows applications into the Win API, namely those DLL provided by Wine, will run at full speed to \"original\" , then running speed should can significantly improve because most applications actually always spin in a DLL at runtime , and Wine those DLL is compiled into ARM mode . In this way, we can combine Wine and QEMU and put Wineserver moved into the kernel , so you should be able to achieve our goal , this is our idea of ​​Longjing 2.0 . To this end we played in 2012 on a lot of experiments . Experiments show that , at least on the clock frequency up to 1GHz ARM processor modern , this is feasible . Now, Longjing 2.0 R & D has made very good progress , like Excel, PPT such software can already turn up in the ARM development board , of course, slower speed , but acceptable. The results, we think , both for practical applications on tablets and phones , or for the CPU and operating system localization , are meaningful.

After that we will temporarily maintain two branches Longjing . One is the 1.0 branch , which is cross-operating system for x86-compatible architecture. Another is the 2.0 branch , which is for both cross-operating system compatibility and inter- CPU architecture . But this is only a transition , after a period of time or to be integrated in the 2.0 branch. This is because , with respect to our objectives , for both the Linux ( x86 architecture , whether or not the x86 architecture ) compatible with the x86 architecture of Windows, support for running Windows applications directly , it is essentially the same. On the use of technology, the former is only a subset of the latter , after the 1.0 branch of progress ( eg progress from Wine \'s ) should be also reflected in the 2.0 branch.

So please, my friends first play Longjing 1.0 , while looking forward to the release of Longjing 2.0 . Of course, we hope you will be able to participate in, and we work together.

ThumbnailKajongg 4.13.0
(KDE Board Game)
Kajongg - the classical Mah Jongg for four players. If you are looking for the Mah Jongg solitaire please use the application KMahjongg.

Installing Kajongg on Windows

Download the installer from the link below.

Kajongg needs the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package.
I believe I am not allowed to include a copy in the installer.
Chances are good that you already have this installed. Otherwise
you should see a corresponding error message. You can get that
package from Microsoft here:

Support for Windows is very new, there might be a few things missing. Still to be done:

- toolbar, statusbar, keyboard shortcuts everywhere

- application language selection. For now, the language of the installed Windows
is used. If Kajongg is not translated into that language, it is english. If you really
need to, you can edit a configuration file and select any of the available languages.

Installing Kajongg on Linux

Kajongg is part of the KDE games, your Linux distribution should bring it to you.


Kajongg is covered by the GNU GPL2 license - see COPYING.

Kajongg can be used in two different ways: Scoring a manual
game where you play as always and use Kajongg for the computation
of scores and for bookkeeping. Or you can use Kajongg to play
against any combination of other human players or computer players.

Kajongg currently comes with two rulesets for classical chinese, one
for rules in Germany and one for rules in England.
You can change many things in the rulesets at your will.
The rules for a game are saved in the database, so every
game could be played with different rules. Changing a ruleset
does not affect existing games.

You can always get the current source code from here:

git clone git://
or see online here:

Please also visit

If you want to send me bug reports, please either use the kajongg
menu commmand Help / Report Bug or mail me directly to the Mail
Address given in that bug reporting dialog. I will not follow links
to pages I do not trust like upload pages, shortlink services or

HowTo / Readme

A short readme is included in the archive: .../ffmpegthumbs-mattepaint-0.4/readme/readme.html

Known issues with the 0.4

- The normal (128) and the large (256) thumbnails are made separately so they can be different images. A workaround is to symlink the thumbnail subdirectories.

Only guarantee: No harm intended...

0.4 / 2014-02-09

- Use KDE ThumbCreatorV2. Adds option enable/disable the matte pictures from the checkbox.
- An option to use all (QImage supported) images as the thumbnails.
- Example scripts to use the attached Matroska posters as thumbnails.

0.3.1 / 2013-03-27

- Remove the test build option.
- Clean the perl scrips.

0.3 / 2013-03-24

- More randomness with the qsrand().
- An option to use png images as the thumbnails.
- Example scripts to hand pick the thumbnails: Snapshot from VLC & SMPlayer, Use posters or any png image as the thumbnail .

0.2 / 2012-09-12

- Don't draw frames around the preview image.
- Use the KDE standard dirs.
- Scale the ornaments with the normal thumbnails.

SABnzbp 0.2 (Plasmoid Script)

ThumbnailSABnzbp 0.2
(Plasmoid Script)
This plasmoid shows the last nzbs that you downloaded via sabnzbd; failed downloads are highlighted differently than successful downloads.

To set the plasmoid up, you'll need
* the host name where sabnzbd is running (i.e.
* the port that sabnzbd uses (default is 8080)
* the webapi key that is generated by sabnzbd (you'll get from sabnzb's settings).

I know that there's a lot of potential in improving the plasmoid (controlling sabnzbd, etc.), if you wanna help than feel free to modify the source for your needs.

Have fun
