[en] Welcome to euroquis.nl. Originally intended as a site for a European source-code-quality project, it now serves as the hub of my online presence. Most of what happens here goes on on the blog.

  • KDE Plasma 6 on FreeBSD -- testing

    I mentioned recently that KDE Plasma 6 is available on FreeBSD – but not all of the KDE Megarelease, and that Plasma 6 can’t co-install with Plasma 5 from the regular ports tree right now. Since we definitely want testing, here’s a VirtualBox setup for it. (I still have not spent the time figuring out bhyve locally)

  • KDE MacOS CI

    KDE applications run everywhere. KDE Frameworks are useful across many different operating systems – FreeBSD and OpenBSD and all those Linuxen and Microsoft Windows and Apple MacOS. That also means doing regular builds and testing (CI) for those operating systems. Linux and FreeBSD CI happens on servers run by KDE e.V. I’m not sure where the Windows CI happens. I do know where MacOS CI happens, because it is in my utility closet at home.

  • FreeBSD and KDE's Megarelease

    The FreeBSD ports tree contains KDE Frameworks 6 and KDE Plasma 6, e.g. x11/plasma6-plasma-desktop, but KDE applications have not updated in particular, and so FreeBSD does not have the “megarelease” on-tap just now.

  • Comments, too!

    By following instructions from Carl and Cassidy and Jan I have enabled comments on my blog. They will be on for some posts, not nearly all. Sometimes, a post is just a post.

  • Calamares Releases

    The Calamares project keeps chugging along. It is ready for the KDE Megarelease – at least in the sense of “ready for Qt6, KDE Frameworks 6 and KDE Plasma 6” in so far as distro’s are going to be making ISO’s with that environment. KaOS has such a thing, and is a primary driver for Calamares Qt6 compatibility. There’s been a bunch of releases recently, with somewhat dry release notes on the Calamares website. Here’s some possibly-more-colorful background.
