People Behind KDE: Marco Gulino

Today on People Behind KDE we introduce you to Marco Gulino. This man is the author of KMobileTools and the all important Konqueror sidebar for amaroK. We also meet his intelligent dog Ricky and learn about the beauty of Sicily. Enjoy the interview.


at little too accurate, or has it any special meaning, like the current version of SimpleMEPIS? (Shouldn't be if you're more a Gentoo or Slackware user...)

i think he meant 3 minutes and 43 seconds, not 3 point 43 seconds.

for KMobiletools, and amarok sidebar. I appreciate your work!

It's nice to finally see you here! :-) I'm looking forward to use the suite after changing my half-decade old green phosphorous cell phone!
(Btw, it looks like University of Padua is really a KDE hacker incubator, since your first contact happened there, as long as mine and Kget2's main hacker's).
Break your leg! (In bocca al lupo!)

While kopete:/ filesystem sounds interesting, much more useful would be to make the file transfer actually work. For instance the oscar/icq file transfer doesn't work at all ATM :-(

Did you post a bug report? If this is your itch, go scratch it! I'm sure the kopete developers would welcome your help in implementing file transfer for oscar/ICQ.

By Philip Rodrigues at Mon, 2006/03/27 - 6:00am

That's "normal", OSCAR(thus ICQ and AIM) file transfer are not implemented yet. And for that, help is always welcome.

I am reffering to this part of the interview

MG: Are you coming to akademy 2006 this year?
PBK: Unfortunately I am a no-money student.

Anyway ... thanks for the cool KMobiletools!!

Take care'

Probably i'll try submitting a talk, as suggested by Jonathan and Daniel in chat.. hoping that my english will be better in september :P

p.s.: 3.43 seconds was only a semi-random number :P
