Some dreams about mageia 7

As we released mageia 6 and we released Pulse 4.0 at  work i had some time to think about what i would like to see, to do for mageia 7.

I will continue to work on Plasma/KDE as this is the DE i use daily and i love it.
Plasma will be better integrated and will know some updates for mageia 6 (stay tuned 😉 ).
I would love to see an educational flavour for Mageia. I kind of started with mageia 6 by adding some tools of abuledu but had to remove some parts.

If someone wants to help on this task, you can directly contact me.

The second task would be a server flavour for mageia by integrating pulse better. I started by working on openldap yesterday.

As for the first task, if someone want to works on this or directly on Pulse ( python, php apps ) you can directly contact me.

Come help mageia with us

it is with pleasure that I see that Mageia is increasingly used.

However, this implies more work. It is important that more contributors help the distribution and it can be done at different levels: Graphics, web, testing, packaging (KDE, Java Kernel, etc.).

If you are interested, please join us (http://ml.mageia.org or on irc freenode #mageia-dev or #mageia).

Major update in cauldron

Now that cauldron is open, the kde team has updated KF5 to 5.12.0, Plasma to 5.3.2 and Kde Applications to 15.04.3.

we have added minimal kde-workspace and kdebase4-runtime that can now be installed with plasma.

This migration is a good way to remove old and unmaintained apps.

If you want to help don’t be shy 🙂

Known issues:
SystemSettings has no icons if .kde is missing.
No customisation for now.

Some work on sddm

Sddm in cauldron is now updated to the last release ( 0.0.9 ) and it is now working. Some work have been done for in the pam config file.

If you want to test it in mageia you will need to do :

systemctl disable prefdm.service && systemctl enable sddm.service

On next reboot it will not use prefdm anymore but sddm will start.

If you notice any probleme, please report your bug into Mageia Bugzilla.

Some news about KF5

Things moved recently about kf5 in mageia. We had, since a long time, the framework part.

Now that the first stable release is out we packaged the desktop/workspace  release based on KF5.

Unfortunalty this can’t be co-installed in parallel of KDE4. For the moment ( not yet clean packages ) you have to follow those steps:

1- Remove  kdebase4-workspace ( this will remove a bunch of packages workspace dependant ( plasma applets, etc).
2- install plasma-desktop and plasma-workspace

3 restart your session and in your favorite DM go in KF5.

Keep in mind that those are experimental packages.
