pyRad 0.7.1 (KDE Other Utility)

Thu, 2015/03/26 - 2:06pm
ThumbnailpyRad 0.7.1
(KDE Other Utility)
A wheel type command interface for KDE 4, heavily inspired by Kommando. It's designed to appear below your mouse pointer at a gesture or keystroke.


- easy_install pyRadKDE


- call You can now use Alt-F6 or Meta-F6 to show the wheel.
- Add "/usr/bin/" as script to your autostart (systemsettings->advanced->autostart)
- Add the mouse gesture to call D-Bus: Program: org.kde.pyRad ; Object: /MainApplication ; Function: newInstance

- Alternately set the gesture to call the command "dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.kde.pyRad /MainApplication org.kde.KUniqueApplication.newInstance"

- customize the menu by editing the file "~/.pyradrc" or right-clicking items.


- Just use your gesture to call up the command wheel when you want to call one of your included programs.

- Left-click the program to start it. You can also press the key shown in the programs tooltip for the same effect.
- Right-click an item to edit it. Middle-click an item to add a new one after it (clockwise).
- Make folders by clicking on folder inside the edit dialog.
Actions are simply the commands you'd use on the commandline (no shell scripting though).

- call " --quit" to shutdown the process in the background. " --help" shows the usage. " --daemon" starts pyRad without showing the GUI.

You can find additional Information on and

KFritz 0.0.14 (KDE Networking Tool)

Wed, 2015/03/25 - 10:12am
ThumbnailKFritz 0.0.14
(KDE Networking Tool)
A KDE program for users of AVMs Fritz!Box to get call signaling and other functions.

  • Call notification

    KFritz connects to the Fritz!Box to inform you about incoming calls. Detailed configuration is possible either in the KFritz user interface or KDE\'s system settings.

    To enable this feature you have to dial \"#96*5*\" with a telephone connected to the Fritz!Box. This works for all firmware versions >= xx.03.99

    You may experience problems when trying to dial \"#96*5*\" with an ISDN telephone. In such a case try to activate \"auto keypad\", \"dial * and #\" or some similar setting in your ISDN telephone. If your ISDN telephone contains no keypad support simply use an analogue telephone instead.

    If you do not want to be notified by every call, you can specify a list of MSNs you are interested on in the plugin\\\'s setup. Max. 22 monitored MSNs are supported.

  • Phone book support

    KFritz supports multiple phonebooks. You can configure which phonebooks are used. The order matters with respect to number lookup. When a call comes in, the plugin tries to resolve the number using the first configured phonebook. If that fails, it tries the second one, and so on.

    Fritz!Box phone book

    This accesses the Fritz!Box phonebook stored on the box itself. phone books

    This tries to resolve any number via online directories.

    Local Phonebook

    This is a local CSV file. It must be called \"localphonebook.csv\" and has to be placed in $KDEHOME/share/apps/kfritz/. Each line contains one entry in the following format: \"«name»,«type»,«number»\". «type» has to be replaced with a type code (1=home, 2=mobile, 3=work).

  • Fritz!Box call list

    Shows the call history. Missed calls are indicated in KDE\'s system bar.

  • f you discover any bug or have a feature request, use the KDE bugtracking at

    2015-03-25: Version 0.0.14
    - Fix compiler issue with libindicate installed
    (closes #329249 in KDE bugtracker)

    - Git repository available (git://
    - Fix bugs in process creation & opening
    - Fix icon name of `Rebuild Database' action
    - Fix behaviour of `Make Dialog' when restoring a long command from a previous session
    - New feature of `Make Dialog' : the whole command history is written to the per-project config file when closing a session and restored during the next session for the same project
    - Add a dialog to setup INCLUDEDIRS & SOURCEDIRS env. var. used by cscope when (re)building the database

    ThumbnailCantata 1.5.2
    (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. Fix Ubuntu Touch builds.
    2. When refreshing search menu, clear items first!
    3. Fix setting of cover when existing cover is embedded in music file.
    4. Fix OSX executable name for case-sensitive filesystems.

    7. Don't allow to set short-cuts for actions that are menus.
    8. Add high-dpi support to Linux and Windows Qt5.4 builds.
    9. When calculating ReplayGain, if peak value is less than 0.00001 then assume the calculation is invalid.
    10. When parsing podcast RSS, if episode is marked as video (e.g. video/mp4) but the url ends in an audio extension then it is proably an audio podcast.
    11. Correctly initialise seach category.
    12. Fix potential crashes on refresh.
    13. Fix duplicate notification when Cantata is started whilst playing, or when 'Replace Play Queue' is used.
    14. Only show output change notification if outputs menu was not previously empty.
    15. Construct a new config object, rather than changing group, to avoid any race conditions.
    16. If fading volume on stop, then reset volume just before stopping. Some outputs (e.g. pulse audio) only allow setting a volume whilst playing.
    17. If 'url' entry is empty in 'enclosure' section of podcast RSS file, then use 'guid' text as url - if possible.
    18. Fix copying of covers to UMS, etc, devices if song is transcoded.
    19. Add an option for 64 bit non KDE linux builds to install helper apps to lib64 instead of just lib. Pass -DCANTATA_HELPERS_LIB_DIR=lib64 to cmake.

    Kup Backup System 0.5.1 (KDE Archiving/Backup)

    Fri, 2015/03/20 - 5:05am
    ThumbnailKup Backup System 0.5.1
    (KDE Archiving/Backup)
    Kup is created for helping people to keep up-to-date backups of their personal files. Connecting a USB hard drive is the primary supported way to store files, but saving files to a server over a network connection is also possible for advanced users.

    When you plug in your external hard drive Kup will automatically start copying your latest changes, but of course it will only do so if you have been active on your computer for some hourse since the last time you took a backup (and it can of course ask you first, before copying anything).
    In general Kup tries to not disturb you needlessly.

    There are two types of backup schemes supported, one which keeps the backup folder completely in sync with what you have on your computer, deleting from the backup any file that you have deleted on your computer etc. The other scheme also keeps older versions of your files in the backup folder. When using this, only the small parts of your files that has actually changed since last backup will be saved and therefore incremental backups are very cheap. This is especially useful if you are working on big files. At the same time it's as easy to access your files as if a complete backup was taken every time; every backup contains a complete version of your directories. Behind the scenes all the content that is actually the same is only stored once. To make this happen Kup runs the backup program "bup" in the background, look at for more details.

    One important note is that bup will work regardless of which filesystem is used on the external drive. You can use NTFS or FAT32, unlike some other backup solutions which require hard links to work!

    What the Kup backup system consists of
  • Configuration module, available in your system settings. Here you can configure backup plans, what to include, where to store the backup and how often. You can also see the status for the backup plans here.

  • A small program running in the background. It will monitor to see when your backup destination is available, schedule and run your backup plans. It has a system tray icon that shows up when a backup destination is available.

  • Kioslave for accessing bup archives. This allows you to open files and folders directly from an archive, with any KDE application.

  • A file browsing application for bup archives, allowing you to locate the file you want to restore more easily than with the kioslave. It presents a merged view: inside each saved folder you can see all the files it ever contained (well, that has been backed up at least). Select a file and you can see which different versions of this file that exists in the bup archive. You can open and view the files from here and it also helps you restore files or folders.

  • Detailed list of features
  • backup types:
    - Synchronized folders with the use of "rsync".
    - Incremental backup archive with the use of "bup"

  • backup destinations:
    - local filesystem path, monitored for availability. That means you can set a destination folder which only exist when perhaps a eSATA harddrive or a network shared drive is mounted and Kup will detect when it becomes available.
    - external storage, like usb hard drives. Also monitored for availability.

  • schedules:
    - manual only (triggered from tray icon popup menu)
    - interval (suggests new backup after some time has passed since last backup)
    - usage based (suggests new backup after you have been active on your computer for some hours since last backup).

  • Needed backup programs

    To actually create backups of your data you will need either "bup" or "rsync" installed. They
    provide the implementations for the two different types of backups that Kup supports.

    Helping out
    If you want to help out with translation, check out There you can see the current status of all current languages and also request a new language to be added!

    If you feel like helping out with coding, please have a look at the code and the list of issues at the github page:

    Please report any issues at the github page!

    If you do test new features that are not in a released version yet, please let me know if it works or not. This project is still small enough that it is very useful to get feedback on any testing done.

    Kup Version 0.5.1
    - Bug fix for source selection: there was a situation where the folder selection collapsed and could not be expanded when dealing with hidden folders, this has now been fixed.
    - Expand to show selected hidden folders when enabling "show hidden folders".
    - Add ".local/share/Trash" as a default exclude for new backup plans.
    - Change how includes and excludes are shown in the source selection, hopefully this way it should be clearer what will be backed up.
    - Add an error message, correct some texts, update all translations. Contains big improvements to polish, german, italian and portugese translation.

    Kup is now available in 12 languages, 7 of them are complete translations! The remaining 5 are about 70% translated.

    Kup Version 0.5.0
    - Add option to generate recovery information that can be used to fix broken bup backup archive.
    - Add option to do integrity testing of bup archive every time a new backup is taken. In case something is broken and you are generating recovery information it will ask you if you want to try repairing the files.
    - Now the configuration dialog warns about dataloss when using rsync in combination with fat32 or ntfs.
    - Keep a log file of last backup job, can be viewed from system tray menu.
    - Bugfix for viewing files in a bup archive containing more than 1000 separate backups.
    - Cosmetic fixes and more informative texts in the configuration dialog.
    - Add complete translation to Chinese(taiwan) and Lithuanian.

    Kup Version 0.4.2
    - Bug fix: store bup index in backup so that .bup folder in home directory is not needed, it was not being initialized anyway.. that was the real bug.
    - Bug fix: allow user to select sources from /run. Internal hard drives could be mounted there, so it's a valid usage scenario.
    - Bug fix: fix starting the monitoring process when enabling backups for the first time.

    Kup Version 0.4.1
    - Bug fix: detect when a new filesystem is mounted on a monitored path.
    - Now with complete German, Polish, Russian, French, Portugese, Spanish, Tagalog, Swedish and Italian translations. Woohoo! A big "thank you" to all translators!

    Kup Version 0.4.0
    - Bug fix: detect encrypted partitions on external hard drives.
    - Small update to keep up-to-date with new metadata format in bup v0.25
    - Add German, Italian and Swedish translations. Tagalog and Spanish are still only partial.

    Kup Version 0.4.0 beta 1
    - Add kioslave for accessing files and folders directly from any git archive (including bup archives, of course!). Comes complete with support for metadata scheduled to be available with the soon-to-come 0.25 version of bup. Please test! Just type "bup://" in a kde-based filemanager (dolphin, konqueror, krusader et al)
    - Add a new application called filedigger, it helps you find the right version of a file and then also helps you restore that file. You can open folders and files to have a look at them before restoring, thanks to the new kioslave.
    - Add rsync-type of backups.

    Please help test the above new features! And now is also the time to translate all the new texts, please help adding your language!

    Kup Version 0.3.2
    - Add german, italian and tagalog translations.
    - Make it more difficult to create a backup plan without a destination. (Select first usb drive automatically when connected, warn user if no drive is selected when saving)

    Kup Version 0.3.1
    - Fix running with older versions of bup by removing compression level option, not useful for most people anyway.
    - Check if bup is installed, notify user if not.
    - Add spanish translation.

    Kup Version 0.3
    - Adds an option to take the backup as root. Useful when you want to backup system files which needs root access to read.
    - Now checks if you are inactive (no mouse or keyboard activity) when accumulating usage time. For instance, Kup will no longer count time watching a movie on your computer as active usage time.
    - Adds ability to configure which compression level is used for backups.
    - Adds the option of selecting/deselecting hidden folders.
    - Adds infrastructure for translations and a swedish translation. Help with other languages would be appreciated!
    - Now sets the CPU and (on linux) the IO scheduler priority of the backup processes to be very nice, just to minimize risk of a running backup disturbing you.
    - Fixes a couple of bugs in the folder selection tree.
    - Shows more info about external drives connected and now also remembers more info about the drive you have selected.
    - Now uses the bup index file in your home directory instead of having the index file located in the destination archive. This can perhaps give better performance in some scenarios, not tested.
    - Adds a few hidden folders in your home directory as default excludes, should be useful for most people.

    Kup Version 0.2
    - Introduced a new scheduling mode, Usage. Monitors how long you've been logged in since last backup was taken and suggests new backup after configured number of hours. Made this scheduling mode the default.
    - Made a new systray icon (supposed to look like a safe... you judge..).
    - The progress notification thing was just ugly & annoying, removed it. Now just showing an animated icon when taking a backup.
    - Added option to never ask user before starting to take a new backup.
    - Improved error reporting
    - Big code cleanup for more maintainable code
    - Made the config module's way of detecting/starting the daemon process more reliable.
    - Systray icon tooltip now contains info on backup plan status.
    - Systray icon now shows up with a red warning symbol if a plan has "bad" status; more than three times the backup interval has passed since last backup.
    - Bug fix, already plugged in devices didn't show up in the list for selecting external destination drive.
    - Bug fix for local filesystem destination: now detects if destination folder becomes available after a mount.

    Kup Version 0.1
    - Initial release.

    Papyrus - Note Manager 1.0.0 (KDE Text Processing)

    Tue, 2015/03/17 - 7:01pm
    ThumbnailPapyrus - Note Manager 1.0.0
    (KDE Text Processing)
    Papyrus is not just an application. It is more like a theory; a theory on which much time has been spent in Aseman Team to be designed and implemented.

    Theory of Papyrus states that imagine you have a lot of blank papers before you. You can write anything on them you would like without any concerns about how it is going to be kept or what will happen to them. You stick a label on them and then attach as many files as you’d like to them.
    Do not worry about where or how it is going to be put and kept and clear your mind from all such concerns. Turn over the present paper and go to next one and only think about writing. Write on and on and fill in thousands of papers with a distress-free mind. A thousand is a small number for Papyrus.
    During all this time Papyrus saves and keeps all your writings in its storage (cache).
    Say goodbye to crowded lists of hundreds of writings. You can read and edit your writings whenever you want. Just ask Papyrus what you want.
    If you are looking for a specific word, say it to Papyrus via the search tool. If you are looking for a specific label, choose the label from the sidebar and if you are looking for some writings modified on a specific date, type the date on the history tool.
    Surely many more new, smart and advanced tools will be published for expressing your demands to Papyrus. But for now we are at the beginning and only these tools are presented.
    Papyrus tries to sugar-coat writing for you through its simple theory and simplicity of user interface. It tries to make you concentrate only on writing so as to motivate you to write more.
    The goal of Papyrus is to inspire people to write diaries, short stories, daily notes, purchase lists, information, etc. as easily and best as possible and more importantly to enjoy writing.
    Papyrus attempts to support the habit of writing and motivate the users to write in today’s mechanized world.
    We hope to develop and strengthen the theory of Papyrus by relying on your support in order to satisfy you even more, leading to a development in the field of Note Manager Applications.

    Leading Team of Aseman
