[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.

  • VirtualBox guest additions in FreeBSD

    I just wrote about a simple and straightforward way to bring KDE Plasma Desktop to a VirtualBox guest with FreeBSD. After a bunch of package installations and a bit of system-configuration tweaking – it can be condensed into two commands if you like – there’s a running KDE Plasma Desktop. This post examines some subsequent tweaks.

  • VirtualBox with FreeBSD + KDE

    I have this instant-workstation script that can be used to turn a fresh FreeBSD install into a working KDE desktop machine. I don’t run it that often, because I don’t (re)install that many machines. However, people on the Twits do seem to have trouble making similar steps, and so I’m writing down a full story from virtual machine (VM) creation to KDE Plasma Desktop.

  • Repairing Akonadi on FreeBSD

    Users of Akonadi (databases/akonadi) on FreeBSD who chase the main ports / packages tree may have noticed that Akonadi started crashing on startup. I know I did, because I couldn’t read mail anymore. There’s a fix, it is in ports, and this post describes what I did about it.

  • FreeBSD KDE Frameworks dependencies

    Packaging software is a colossal waste of time. Take that however you will; I’ll write about some time-wasting I’ve undertaken this week to reduce time-wasting by others (mostly users of KDE Frameworks on FreeBSD) in future.

  • My Akademy 2021 (2)

    Akademy was over all of a sudden. I was all set to do the conference closing, with my KDE e.V. board-hat on – the e.V. supports the community, and it is the community that makes the conference, with talks, birds-of-a-feather sessions, and all that good stuff.
