SUSEnews (Translation Tool for Weekly News) are published in 0.1.4beta1

The Week Sebastian Schöbinger announced the new Version 0.1.4 beta1. This great Tool is an Program for the openSUSE Weekly News Team, and its an Translation-Helper-Program. I like this Program, and i hope that many Teammembers use this nice piece of code.


What’s happend since the last version?

  • openSUSE Weekly News “Light Version”
  • saigkill joined the developer team

The most important Change is the Support for the Light Version. We have two different Templates. The Full Template is for Translators who would like to translate the whole Issue. For Translators with lesser time, they can use the Light Template. In this Template the Translator just translate the Subjects.

BTW: We need Translators. If you speak an other Language as english, you can write to: and we can integrate you in our Team. We have just nice boys, no bad boys 🙂

Today i’ve packaged SUSEnews, and the Package can be found in the home:saigkill Repository.

How to make an Podcast

Maybe you have asked yourself how to make an own Podcast. This Howto would like to clearing this Question.

What needed:

1.) Audacity
2.) free Music
3.) running Soundsystem.

Step 1.)

First of all we creating an Intro and Outrofile. For that you must search free intrumental Backroundmusic. Free Music you find as Example in Jamendo. If you have found an  Music you can save this in an Folder. In my System i’m using an Folder „Radiotux“.

Then you start Audacity. What you see is an empty Project. Now you go to the Recordbutton. You see, that an Marker goes to the next Seconds. Now you can say in the Micro anything like „OpenSUSE Weekly News …… with Joe doe … Welcome to issue Number“. After you spoken issue Number, you break and wait a pair Seconds. Now you import your Musicfile. Now we can see zwo Channels. Through using Effects/Amplify you can aedit both Channels. The first Channel with your Voice you can go to more dB and the Musictrack lesser dB. In the Musicchannel: We using Fade in and fade out for slow beginning and ending.


Now you can save this through using „Export to..“Then you close the Project and open an new.

2.) Body: For the Body you can create an new Project and you say whatever you want. Then you import the Musictrack and you can edit both Tracks. You make Volume up to the Voicetrack and Volume down In this Project we using Fade out an fade in for slow stopping.

3.) Outro: Se same as 2.)

4.) Puzzle: Now you have to import all File into an new Project.

5.) Tips: If you have an Voicetrack und would like to place an other Track after the Voicetrack, you have to use Genrate/Silence. If Track A have 5 Min, you must generate on the track’s beginning 5 Min Silence. So we have as result an 10 Min track with 5 Min Track A and 5Min Track B.

published bleachbit 0.6.4

Now i’m pleased to Announce that bleachbit 0.6.4 is available in Repository openSUSE:Factory:Contrib.


The following changes are included since 0.6.3:

* Add command line interface. Often requested as a new feature, the command line interface lets you invoke BleachBit from scripts, cron, batch files, or the Windows Task Scheduler. For example, BleachBit can automatically vacuum Firefox each night or each time you login.
* At the end of the log, show how many files were deleted, how many special operations were performed, and how many errors occurred, if any. Before only the size was shown.
* When you close BleachBit while it is wiping free disk space, BleachBit will now quickly stop wiping free disk space.
* When manually shredding files (by clicking File – Shred Files), BleachBit now ignores the related preference regarding overwriting files.
* Make BleachBit easier to port to other POSIX systems such as NetBSD. (BleachBit is already available in NetBSD.)
* Fix two spelling typos.
* Fix small bugs.
* Improve unit tests.
* Specific to Linux
o Honour GNOME appearance settings for toolbars (text below icon, icon only, etc).
o Fix Yum error checking for non-English languages.
* Specific to Windows
o Shrink the installer by 6% by using a unique translation compression technique on the GTK+ localizations. If you notice any untranslated strings, please report them.
o Clean Opera 10.0 final.
o Delete one more Windows system log file.
o Offer an English-only download which is 11% smaller than downloading all the translations.
o Make the software update notification more obvious.

Live from the openSUSE Conference in Nürnberg

Yes, i’m here in Nürnberg. The Conference is very interesting. Yesterday i’ve given an Talk „Getting to know the openSUSE Weekly News.“ After my Talk i had visited Joe Brockmeiers „openSUSE Ambassador Program“, Holger Sickenbergs „Testing of the openSUSE Distribution and Will Stephensons „Future of openSUSE KDE“. This day was an Motivation for me, to be a part of the Testing Team. Through an Emulator i can run the Milestones without installing. I think, that  i can do it. I’m writing Bugreports.

Today i’ve visited Alexandra Leisses Talk „Community and Contributions“, then Scott Reves and Takashi Iwais Talk „Alsa and Pulseaudio on openSuSE“, then Build your own Linux Distribution during Lunch Break“ and Jan Simon Mollers Talk „openSUSE and ARM „GSoC and beyond“. This day, and the Discussion with the other Mates, motivated me to create an new Repository in OBS called „Medical“. Inside this i put Packages with Medical Relationships. If i have some Packages inside that, i plan to make an SUSE Studio Imahe for Medical Doctors or Clinical Professional Enviroment.

Tomorrow i give an second Talk called „Softwareprograms under Linux and Presenting important Software“. This Talk i give in the German Language. Maybe i can Blog in the next Days too. But if you are not sure, and if you have some Time at Saturday or Sunday, you can meet us in Nürnberg.

BtW. Today we have interviewed Frank Karlitschek for RadioTux.
