New Package for openSUSE: assuma (Association Subscribers Manager)


I’m pleased to announce the Version 3.2.0 of assuma. As known, you can install it through the openSUSE:Factory:Contrib and the KDE:KDE4:Community Repositories.

Association Subscribers Manager is a Software for Clubs and Associatons. You can administrate your Members and all you need. The Projectsite is: http://www.associationsubscribersmanager.org/ . The OpenDesktop Site is: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php?content=109313

Have a lot of fun 🙂

New Package: kmymoney4 (openSUSE)


I’m happy to Announce the kmymoney4 Package for KDE4-Unstable and KDE4-Factory in openSUSE. You can get it through adding the KDE:KDE4:Community Repository into the Repository Manager fro YaST. After that you can install it just with „zypper in kmymoney4“ or with using YaST. While the Installation zypper or YaST saying, that the old KMyMoney goes deinstalling. That’s okay, you can agree that.

After the Installation, you can create a new Account, or you can load an old exisitng once.

This Software hast ATM a Beta Staus. So you work on your own risk. But as far as i seen, it is stable and usable.

So i wish you many joy with testing this. 🙂

Call for Participation: KDE Project needs help before relaunch


Today i recieved an Tweet from Lydia Pintscher. Lydia wrote, that the KDE Project needs help.

What is to do? The goal is to find some simple data about KDE’s programs following by a template and putting them on the wiki. She tells us, that Screenshots also needed. The community wiki has more details. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know all the data for a certain program. Fill in as much as you know.  If you have questions come to #kde-www on freenode or drop me an email at lydia at kde org.
