My KDE week

Google syncing, Calligra and Digikam git snapshot packages

Posted on: April 12, 2012

As you can read all over PlanetKDE, Calligra 2.4 has been released. In case you have not found them yet, since quite some time Calligra packages(including Krita) are available for openSUSE users, e.g. in KDE:Release:48. Koffice2 packages are removed.

One of the most re-occuring questions regarding KDE PIM within openSUSE is, how one can sync data with Google. KDE:Release:48 now holds the package akonadi-google which replaces the unmaintained akonadi-google-data package.

Both, Calligra and akonadi-google, will be part of openSUSE 12.2.

Finally I would like to point openSUSE KDE users to the beta packages of Digikam. IMHO Digikam is one of the most active and responsive (including bugs.kde.org handling) projects within KDE – attracting new developers by attracting more users. Those that want to help testing Digikam but are not familiar with building software, can get git snapshot packages from KDE:Unstable:Playground. Beware, those are git snapshots and thus might break some functionality. The package is updated at least once a week, so it should help to check for fixed/new bugs.
