Scarlett Gately Moore: Kubuntu, KDE, Debian: I am still here, in loving memory of my brother.

I am still here, busy as ever, I just haven t found the inspiration to blog. So soon after the loss of my son, I have lost my only brother a couple weeks ago. It has been a tough year for our family. Thank you everyone for you love and support during this difficult time. I will do my best in re-capping my work, there has been quite a bit as I am keeping busy with work so I don t dwell to much on the sadness.

I have implemented everything from https://snapcraft.io/docs/gpu-support , it has worked for years and now suddenly it just stopped. I have had to put it on hold for now, it is unpaid work and I simply don t have time. With the help of my GSOC student we are improving the Qt6 snap MR: https://invent.kde.org/neon/snap-packaging/kde-qt6-core-sdk/-/merge_requests/3 and many improvements on top of that. This exposed many issues with the kf6 snap and the linking to static libs. Those are being worked on now. Updated qt to 6.7.1 Qt6 apps in the works: okular, ark, gwenview, kwrited, elisa Kubuntu: So many SRu s for the Noble release, I will probably miss a few. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ark/+bug/2068491 Ark cannot open 7-zip files. Sadly the patches were for qt6, waiting for a qt5 port upstream. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/noble/+source/merkuro/+bug/2065063 Crash due to missing qml. Fix is in git, no upload rights. Requested sponsor. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tellico/+bug/2065915 Several applications no longer work on architectures that are not amd64 due to hard coded paths. All fixed in git. Several uploaded to oracular, several sponsorship has been requested. Noble updates rejected despite SRU, going to retry. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sddm/+bug/2066275 The dreaded black screen on second boot bug is fixed in git and oracular. Noble was rejected despite the SRU. Will retry. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kubuntu-meta/+bug/2066028 Broken systray submenus. Fixed in git and oracular. Noble rejected despite SRU.

And many more I am applying for MOTU in hopes it will reduce all of my uploading issues. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/scarlettmoore/MOTUApplication Debian: kf6-knotifications and kapidox. Will jump into Plasma 6 next week ! Misc: Went to LinuxFest Northwest with Valorie! We had a great time and it was a huge success, we had many people stop by our booth.
As usual, if you like my work and want to see Plasma 6 in Kubuntu it all depends on you! Kubuntu will be out of funds soon and needs donations! Thank you for your consideration. https://kubuntu.org/donate/ Personal: Support for my grandson: https://www.gofundme.com/f/in-loving-memory-of-william-billy-dean-scalf

Scarlett Gately Moore: KDE Snaps, snapcraft, Debian packages.

Sunset, Witch Wells ArizonaSunset, Witch Wells Arizona
Another busy week! In the snap world, I have been busy trying to solve the problem of core20 snaps needing security updates and focal is no longer supported in KDE Neon. So I have created a ppa at https://launchpad.net/~scarlettmoore/+archive/ubuntu/kf5-5.99-focal-updates/+packages Which of course presents more work, as kf5 5.99.0 requires qt5 5.15.7. Sooo this is a WIP. Snapcraft kde-neon-extension is moving along as I learn the python ways of formatting, and fixing some issues in my tests. In the Debian world, I am sad to report Mycroft-AI has gone bust, however the packaging efforts are not in vain as the project has been forked to https://github.com/orgs/OpenVoiceOS/repositories and should be relatively easy to migrate. I have spent some time verifying the libappimage in buster is NOT vulnerable with CVE-2020-25265 as the code wasn t introduced yet. Skanpage, plasma-bigscreen both have source uploads so the can migrate to testing to hopefully make it into bookworm! As many of you know, I am seeking employment. I am a hard worker, that thrives on learning new things. I am a self starter, knowledge sponge, and eager to be an asset to < insert your company here > ! Meanwhile, as interview processes are much longer than I remember and the industry exploding in layoffs, I am coming up short on living expenses as my unemployment lingers on. Please consider donating to my gofundme. Thank you for your consideration.I still have a ways to go to cover my bills this month, I will continue with my work until I cannot, I hate asking, but please consider a donation. Thank you!GoFundMe

Scarlett Gately Moore: Debian uploads, Core22 KDE snap content pack and more!

I have been quite busy! I have been working on several projects so my cover image is a lovely sunset where I live. Debian: I have updated and uploaded several packages and working on more. KDE Snaps: I have reworked the CI to now do Core22 snaps! They will publish to the beta channel until we get them tested. First snap completed is the ever important KDE Frameworks / QT content snap + SDK! Applications will start after I tackle the kde-neon extention in snapcraft. GUI-Testing: I have begun learning/writing some GUI tests using python and https://invent.kde.org/sdk/selenium-webdriver-at-spi/, inspired by one of my favorite people, Harald. See https://apachelog.wordpress.com/2022/12/14/selenium-at-spi-gui-testing/ for more info and I hope to get these in repos near you soon! In closing, I am still seeking employment/sponsor amidst this terrible layoff season. If anyone knows of anyone with my diverse skill set please let me know. In the meantime if you can spare anything to keep the lights on I would be ever so grateful.
