Back to KDE work

After a couple of months busy with other stuff now I have more time to spent on blogging. During the last weeks I have been working to fix some bugs in Plasma NM (bugs 264607,  266097, 210878), Kopete (bugs 234000, 260892, 263181, 256667, 265811, 266559 and commit 1218860) and kde-workspace (bug 264534 and 231195). All fixes are going to be in KDE SC 4.6.1. There are other bugs I am investigating, not all of them will be fixed by 4.6.1 release date though.

Thanks for your work.

But there are progress for hidden SSID wifi?

NM works like a charm but can't creating a hidden wifi connection.

To solve I must run this command before creating the connection in NM:
iwlist wlan0 scan essid myessidname

Thanks for the support.

I do not see any patch related to hidden SSID in git networkmanagement's "repository" in the last months.

Bug http://bugs.kde.org/209464 tracks this problem. Another workaround you can try is changing ap_scan=1 to ap_scan=2 in your /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf.

Bug http://bugs.kde.org/227529 includes one clue to what may be wrong in Plasma NM.

DUDE! It's so good to see someone who focuses on actually fixing bloody bugs instead of writing 'cool features' :D

I was so annoyed when I noticed that in Plasma 4.6 one STILL cannot resize a progress bar (so with downloads you can't see where files are coming from or going too) yet someone wasted time on adding a speed graph in the progress bar... Talking about wrong priorities...

Lamarque said...

Yes, bugs bug us more than cool features hehe. There are lot of bugs to solve and what impresses me more is that several bug entries in bugs.kde.org already have attached patches to solve them. It is just a matter of trying the patches, check if they really solve the problem and commit the changes.

@jospoortvliet what you suggest is both oversimplified, and wrong.

Questioning people's priorities, because they're different from yours is a good way to piss off developers. I'd expected more insight from you...

Do you have bugnumbers, btw?
