  • AdelGadllah (drago01)
  • DennisGilmore


  • Pulseaudio in KDE (Setup , Thread on fedora-devel-ml )
  • Infinity Splash Screen for KDE (#336301 , Thread on fedora-art-list , initial version )
  • beryl is dead. Is compiz-kde usable?
  • How well does nm-applet work as a replacement for knetworkmanager?
  • Defining a Top-5-List of the "most-needed-next-topics" to work on (to give new SIG-Members an advice where we need the most work)
  • Adjust the color scheme to match the default wallpaper (#295631 )
  • Usage of fedora-bookmarks also in konqueror (#344711 )
  • KDE 3.94.0 (development platform) for Fedora 7 and 8




  • We will use pulseaudio by default in Fedora 8
  • A script in /etc/kde/env/ will start pulseaudio for KDE (because there seems to be no interest in system-wide usage of pulseaudio)
  • With pulseaudio only started in a full session of KDE audio support won't be available in apps that are started outside a full session and if pulseaudio isn't running
  • RexDieter will find out where the best place is to put this in

Infinity Splash Screen:

  • artwork people offered help but at time of the meeting there was no existing splash
  • we will use kde's default (splash if no splash occurs later the day)


  • compiz is obsoleting beryl now so that upgrade path will work
  • we have a quick hack for switching compiz<->kwin based on compiz-manager (which isn't submitted for review yet)
  • getting a package in fedora for f8-final would be difficult
  • SebastianVahl will submit compiz-manager for review


  • /etc/skel/.kde/{env,shutdown} will be moved to /etc/kde/{env,shutdown} to not only affect newly created user accounts
  • RexDieter will also add some minor modifications to knetworkmanager
  • SebastianVahl re-included knetworkmanager on the live images again

adjust color scheme:

  • the adjusted color scheme will be included as default
  • later adjustements could be done then

use fedora-bookmarks:

  • it is unclear for the moment how to use fedora-bookmarks directly in konqueror and if this is possible
  • Plan: inlcude a snapshot now and try to figure out how to use fedora-bookmarks directly later

KDE 3.94.0 for F7, F8:

  • KDE 3.94 is built for devel (rawhide for f9)
  • kdebase-workspace isn't existing yet
  • KDE 3.94 will be prepared for integration into f8-updates-testing and f7-updates-testing

Top-5-List of the "most-needed-next-topics" to work on (for new SIG members...):

  • Such a list could help new contributors to give an advice where their help is most needed
  • But this list will change often and also become outdated quickly
  • A new wiki page will be prepared for the next meeting

Open discussion:

  • SebastianVahl has written to all the listed "participants" in the KDE-SIG for their opinion about culling down the list of participants (see last meeting). No response yet.
  • If more duplicated entries in kmenu are known which hasn't a bug yet they should be inserted in bugzilla
