Thanks to Riya for making the info graphics.

Using Kmail with PostgreSQL backend is a nice experience. This should really be default

Krita 4.4.2 released! Over 300 changes, many bugs fixed, new features (mesh gradients, mesh transform, gradient fill layer and new gradient editor, improved halftone filter and more).

This week in KDE: choose where to open tabs in Dolphin, find widgets easier with the new “Get new Plasma Widgets” dialog, and get text flowing in Konsole -- among many more improvements and enhancements.

To people leaving Whatsapp for Signal or Telegram. It is good that you are migrating but I am sure this is just another hyped temporary migration similar to one that you people did when migrating from twitter to mastodon. After 2-3 months you'll be back where you were.

For one thing it was really funny when you started introducing yourself on mastodon thanks for ruining the peace here momentarily.

I am liking a rpg game. Seems like a good sunday/saturday night activity. Anybody else playing this?

We've managed to release the second beta of Krita 4.4.2 just before the holidays: check out the release announcement and Ramon''s video on the new mesh transform feature!

To all Pepper&Carrot readers, supporters and also to all the Free/Libre and Open Source community, here an illustration I just finished to wish you a wonderful time in this end of year. Happy Holidays!

Also if anyone wants to disable the obnoxious and not so useful 32MB flash storage drive that comes inbuilt with wacom intuos pro from cluttering your list of removable drives panel in KDE plasma/Linux

# create a new file
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hide-wacom.rules

# with this content
SUBSYSTEMS=="scsi", DRIVERS=="sd", ATTRS{model}=="Intuos Pro M ", ATTRS{vendor}=="Wacom ", ENV{UDISKS_IGNORE}="1"

Disclaimer: Use with caution, just a hack that I (a non-dev user) found.

Someone asked me this once again today. So in case anybody else has missed it earlier

How to automatically color (flat) line-art in

Had a chance to try windows 10 PC after so many years at a friends place. I must say. What an abomination it has become. It goes out of its way to be in your way of work, specially if you have a wacom plugged in. Settings scattered around all over. People say Linux is quirky. 🤦🏾‍♂️

Check out Choqok client from @kde . Wonderful mastodon as well as twitter support.

Thanks to vidadesuporte for the funny cartoons to celebrate the 20 years of GCompris !

Great to see the progress! -jd
