Launch Party openSUSE 11.3 & KDE 4.5

August 8th, 2010 von buergermeister

Yesterday, we had the Launch Party for 11.3 here in Chemnitz. It was interesting, how we do it we do it wron. For the last Launch Party we rented a room in a near cultural center, after that we thaught we can do it in the conference rooms of my company. And this time it was filled up :D We had a lot of guests. Some of them came really early and so it was time for an coffee and smalltalk. This time we prepared 3 talks, I started with the “openSUSE A-Z contribution guide” after that Tobias Koenig followed with “KDE yesterday – today and tomorrow, that was a really intersting presentation. He talked about how KDE started and he showed how KDE looked in earlier versions and on the end how showed some things what comes in future. Michl send me some books and I gived them away for the first questions (in Tobias case it was a nasty question about backuping akonadi). The last talk was a special topic, we had Kai-Uwe he talked about his Oyranos project, thats a server for color managment.

For number fetischists, I cooked arround 200 cups of coffee and on the barbecue after the talks I grilled 40 sausages and 25 steaks. So on the end I had not a lot of time for take pictures but I know some of the guests did. I hop I get them. On the end it was I cool event and we make next release a Launch Party again.

  • openSUSE A-Z Contribution Guide

    August 4th, 2010 von buergermeister

    A few hours ago asked Pavol me if I have a openSUSE graffiti with an geeko. Of course I have one, he said he needs it for some slides for his Launch Party on friday and I said I have slides with such an graffiti on it and send it to him. After a few minutes he said, thats exactly what he working on. We both had the same idea, we reusing Hennes and Vuntz talk from LinuxTag 2010. And here it is “The ultimate A-Z openSUSE Contribution Guide” in graffiti style.

    So maybe some other are interested in that, its possible to translate it in other languages, the slides are a cool introducion for openSUSE. That are only the picture slides for every picture is another slide with some points for it.

  • Improve the distribution design 2

    Juli 20th, 2010 von buergermeister

    A few days ago I wrote about improving the design of the installer for the next version. First I have to say thx to all they commented the article and gave me her ideas and opinions. I think I should work and the changings furthermore. In the last days I cant do not much things on this topic, I changed only the map for the time zone selection from a photo realistic map to an bi-colored graphical. So it looks simpler now (but here is a little bit work to do). Take a look.

    On the end I can only develop ideas, what can changed to look better. Because on the end the work must be done with the colors of the next openSUSE wallpaper. But there is a lot of work to do until then. Today I made snapshots from the diashow during the installation process. Such things like the diashow helps that the user think the installation process going very fast, you know the feeling when you wait for something and have nothing what deflect you, the time is endless long.
    Today our installation is very fast, and the slides would not long showed. The whole installation process is done (depending on machine power and choosed software) in arround 20 minutes. The slide show isnt the longest part of it, it makes round 6-7 minutes of the process. I made snapshots from 11 slides that means every picture would be showed arround 70 seconds, some longer and some not so long.
    Have u ever tried to keep 7 different web adresses in your mind, when you have sort it out from a text? One thing is sure you keep not much from the information that is given in that process. So you have to keep the information so simple as possible, when you like to have a effect.
    So now let us take a look of the slide show.

    1. Slide: Short introducion what openSUSE is and that it is made from volunteers, URL www.opensuse.org/How_to_Participate (the only not translated URL and remember you have to keep in mind the correctly capitalization) btw. that slide show is showed longer time as the other.
    2. Slide: remember me that openSUSE is translated to many different languages. URL http://i18n.opensuse.org
    3.-9. Slide: I call it short product information and there are no URL on it :D
    10. Slide: that slide is really the worst case of all slides. It informs the user where he can find more information first I would pointed on a URL http://de.opensuse.org/Documentation, then I got the information about the wiki http://de.opensuse.org, then I become the URL of the official forums http://forums.opensuse.org and last but not least I be informed a little bit about OBS. (I hope I am not the only one who questioning here what have OBS with Documentation in common)
    11. Slide Information about Novells Linux products, URL http://www.novell.com/de-de/linux/

    So now let us speak a little bit about it. I saw a hint for the OBS of course is a really interesting thing for a developer and for the user? Maybe for them is openFATE more from interest, think you not? Saw you something about it?
    7 of the 11 slides inform about what I can do with the distribution they I install right now. Has something from I bought a cat in a bag, all the information given on that slides like that there is a complete office or which browser should given before I install it or not? Its more interesting for how start I this, how can I make the first steps with my new openSUSE or not?
    To change the situation with the to many URL is really simple. Most of them are the default bookmarks, so instead of writing the URL there should be written “the bookmarks of your browser shows you the way” or something.
    For the other things I need a little bit help. I like to improve the section about the project and how to participate a little bit, give that mor place and add openFATE. For the slides I call “product” information (3-9) I would like give more help “how to find and start the browser” and such things as only to say there is one and it is Firefox and btw. Flash isnt installed as the slide right now say! So there is a lot of work to do, maybe you have some ideas how we can improve the slide show during the installation.

    Improve the distribution design

    Juli 12th, 2010 von buergermeister

    In a few days openSUSE 11.3 would be released and I did last days som screenshots for the documentation in the wiki from the installation process. And I have to say it looks not what the distribution deserve. In 11.2 we had a design problem too, the boot splash was made from jimmac and looked really different from the KDE desktop. For 11.3 we tried to avoid that and jimmac made a good looking wallpaper what looked KDE-styled.

    Pieces of that wallpaper are used in some other graphics for the distribution. For example in the installer. So now take a look for the installer. The black geeko looks a little bit wrong. There are so different icons and colors used in the installer so that it looks a little bit as done without love. I think we should change that and so I made some mockups how can look the installer in the future.

    So let me say something to what I have done. I changed the colors some of you maybe dont like the petrol green of the left side. Thats ok and it isnt the last word, the right green tone would be choosed from the standard wallpaper let me show you a little bit what I mean.

    The color is choosed from the wallpaper, yeah I know its a hard crossover to the wallpaper but I worked on the screenshot and when I doing that not so hard you would see the fonts from the screenshot. But I think that works so that you understand what I mean. For the right side I would stay with a dark grey because that helps for a cleaner look. A clean look was my target. When you take a look of the mockups beside of the screenshots, you will see I removed a lot of icons and some buttons too. On the welcome window for example there was a button “License Translations”. For what purpose? When you click it there would be only showed a list with all available language, the funny thin is when you choose on top your language then changes the license if it available automaticly. So from my opinion the button makes not really sense. On other windows I changed the size of icons make the used icons greater and changed the positions. That also helps that the installer looks cleaner and easier to use.

    So on the end what you think about? Give me feedback!

  • LinuxTag 2010 – Review (english)

    Juni 14th, 2010 von buergermeister

    Last week was the 16th edition of LinuxTag, one of the greatest FLOSS events worldwide. I was there but not as part of openSUSE project. There are some events I cant do that because I am part of RadioTux. LinuxTag is such a event and that means a lot of stress for me. My job on RadioTux is Chief of Program, that means I make the schedule for the broadcasting and take care of a trouble-free broadcasting. We had a lot of interviews at LinuxTag round 16 a day and we had two stages too. One of them was in opposite of our booth and the other one was the Open Source Arena which we had daily for a hour.
    I arrived tuesday in Berlin for preparing the booth and the technique for the broadcasting. On the evening I had a little meetup with the Mozilla Corporation. It was interesting was a cool “Biergarten” opposite of “Kanzleramt” and they had saxonian beer there :D But the beer wasnt the only interesting thing, we used the time and made some interviews there with Barbara Hüppe, Axel Hecht and Carsten Book. Mitchell Baker was there too, but she was to tired for giving us an interview, but we hope we get another chance. I talked a little bit with Barbara and Carsten about openSUSE Conference.  On the next day I had a appointment with William Quiviger, he is the right guy for planning that. Michl was there too and so maybe Mozilla visit the openSUSE Conference.
    But that wasnt the only interesting appointment, we had a lot of interesting guests. On wednesday morning Frank Karlitschek and Jos Poortvliet announced the new program of KDE e.V. “Join the Game” at our stage. Next day Stefano Zacchiaroli vistited us and gave us an interview.
    On friday we had openSUSE-Day, in the morning we started with AJ and Michl, about 11.3, openSUSE Conference, strategy and all things that going on in openSUSE project. Then we had a lot of guest all openSUSE boosters, only Will Stephenson, Coolo and Klaas not because they stayed in Nuremberg. But with them we made a phone interview about the HackWeek 5. We had a  interview with bubli about libyui. But not all on this day was openSUSE, we had interviews with Larry Augustin from sugarCRM, Brian King from MozillaDev. Then was there a interview with Stormy and Vuntz about GNOME and a lot of other things.
    On saturday our focus was on ubuntu topics and the highlight of the day was the interview with Mark Shuttleworth. So it was a lot of work to do in the week and its not done yet, because the recordings have to be edited and published. I think I will write a blogpost when all openSUSE interviews are published.

    LinuxTag himself was better as the last years, the atmosphere was it. The social event on Beach at the Box was a great idea and the weather for it was right. The openSUSE booth wasnt great enough. From my side the presentation of openSUSE was one of the best in the hall. The idea to prepare some “workshops” was a good one. I think we have to say thx to Henne for driving that and as Christian Boltz said he ironed personally. He is really like a mother for the openSUSE project :D On saturday I in the morning I had a talk about Open Source Movies, I dont know how it was. Some guys spoke to me after it and said it was great and interesting. I made not a normally talk and prepared a lot of slides only 7 and for this I showed some videos. As I know the talks on saturday morning are not filled up because is to early in the morning :D But is was a full audience. I publish another blogpost about the topic, but it would be a german one, because the talk was in German.
    On the end is was a really great week, I met Prusnak, Miska and many other openSUSE guys again. Next time I see them would be hopefully at FrOSCon, the Boosters plan a Hacksession for connect there, so if you are interested just visit the FrOSCon. Btw. an month later would be FrOSCamp in Zurich, if you are interested to support openSUSE booth or giving workshops or talks so write me a mail. We have to go outside and show the people our project to get them involved! So from this side LinuxTag was a great success. But there enough other possibilitys to show the world our project and community – so make Launch Parties!!!

    there is a german report too

    Für Freunde des Maskottchen von Linux auch Tux genannt, hält Tschibo derzeit etwas bereit. Einen Pinguin-Rollkoffer oder eher Köfferchen, so für die nächste Vortragsreise durchaus geeignet :D Mir ist der Spaß aber einfach mal zu teuer, soll nämlich 39,95 € kosten.

  • Counter for Facebook

    Juni 2nd, 2010 von buergermeister

    Some time ago I found a release counter for facebook from ubuntu. I marked it on my feedreader and then, I forgot it. Last week I cleaned up my feedreader and so I found it again. The sources for the counter are available in launchpad and so I asked Pavol if he can make it for openSUSE. He made his own solution and so you use a counter on facebook.

    Login to facebook and visitthis url http://apps.facebook.com/opensuse-counter give the application the permission and you have a nice counter on your facebook account.

  • the counter runs – so prepare for launch

    Mai 15th, 2010 von buergermeister

    Pascal prepared the counter for openSUSE 11.3 thats the sign to prepare for the release of the newest openSUSE. A few weeks ago I wrote a mail to all ambassadors to prepare Launch Parties. Since then the page in the wiki is filling with places.  But there can be more places and more parties!
    Now I prepared the poster template for the Launch Parties so I last release did. This time I made a version with the new artwork for 11.3. The background from jimmac cries after a rocket. That have nothing to do with Fedora 13 “Goddard” :D
    If you need a exemplar for your party just send me the text and size for it. But think on the 5 W. More text havent to be on the poster. If you need other artwork just send me a mail what you need.

    Linuxwochen Vienna

    Mai 10th, 2010 von buergermeister

    Last week I was with Pavol Rusnak and Michal Hrusecky in Vienna at the Linuxwochen, so we “boosted” openSUSE on this event. Linuxwochen is a interesting idea there are some events in the whole country its a kind of Linux roadshow. But they are not all on the same day and if you like u can visit every event. There was events in Krems, Graz, Eisenberg and Linz. This weekend take the event place in Eisenberg. Not all events there are the same, some of them have special interests so in Linz they are on the art akedemy and they are concentrated to doing artwork with free software. There is 4 days long every day a workshop for it. The organizers called me last year and asked if I can make one of them. In Graz they are at the Johanneum and with 500 visitors one of the greater events at this roadshow. I planned to be there this year and make a special video connection for them. But 2 days before I get the car back from the garage more broken as it was before and had no car and so I cant go to this event. Maybe I can do it next year. So now was Vienna and this event is a little different to. In Germany mostly the Linux events are on universitys. The LinuxTag for example started at the university of Kaiserslautern. And in Vienna the event took place in different places in the city most city halls or other public places. This year was the event in the old city hall from the 17th century.

    So what have we done last week there now. Of course we made a booth, Pavol and Miska brought all stuff from the office in Prague. Pavol brought a wheel joystick to so that there it possible to play some games. But we played not all the time, we made together with some people installations and give out some openSUSE DVD. Not a lot of them, we had not enough for this. Fedora our neighbor booth went out 120 DVD and we arround 40. We had really a lot of conversations there. We had a guy who brought some pages with his written questions and it tooks Pavol and me some hours to answer them all. It wasnt really openSUSE specific questions but the guy liked to ask us because he uses openSUSE. It wasnt the only guy who requested to see a openSUSE booth on Linuxwochen in Vienna. So there was really some people happy to see us there.
    But we did more as this. Pavol had a talk about his GameStore project and Miska did a talk about the upcoming openSUSE 11.3. In Pavols talk was some interested people and Miskas talks was good visited too and after that we see some people more at our booth. Both talks was on saturday and on this day both made together an workshop for using the openSUSE Buildservice. After this workshop the guys from fedora had an workshop about packaging RPM for fedora. I had my workshops on friday. I made two, one about Inkscape and one for GIMP and both was filled up.
    On the end we did a lot on Linuxwochen, we had 2 talks and 3 workshops and a booth there, we installed several openSUSE and had a lot of conversations with users and developers.

    New Planet need more hackagotchis

    April 8th, 2010 von buergermeister

    We just have a new styled planet. But when you looking at him right now, there are often such “grey persons“. Some time ago I offered a sevice from the Art-Team to make hackagotchis for persons who cant do them self. I think I should offer that service now again. You need a (new) hackagotchis? Just send a mail with the picture (and maybe when you have special wishes) to the artwork list or to my personal mail and after a few hours you get your new hackagotchi back.

    Yes its true, RadioTux has his 9th Birthday. Since 9 years we doing podcasts about Linux and Open Source and since last year we doing the openSUSE Weekly News as podcast. Its one of our traditions to make a Birthday broadcast and this year are a lot of openSUSE people in this podcast. The Boosters gratulated us and there are an interview with Julio Vaninni from openSUSE-ni and with Jose Oramas from Ecuador, both doing events for FLISOL. And thats what the broadcast is about – Linux in Latin America and the FLISOL. I also did a mail interview with Ricardo Varas Santana, you can find it here. The interviews with the organizators are in english, the rest of the podcast is in german/swiss german and you can find it here.

    Casi como la Navidad

    März 19th, 2010 von buergermeister

    A few weeks ago as I did this comic here I wrote at the same time to all openSUSE Amabassadors from Latin America a mail to participate in Flisol. Last year there was only to reports from openSUSE people. One of them came from Julio in Nicuragua and the other was written in the wiki, it was in Chile and Ricardo Varas Santana helped organize the event. For me it is not possible even acceptable that there is a event in 20 countrys and over 200 cities and only in two places openSUSE people are involved.  This year is a little bit different, when you look in the openSUSE wiki there are more places with openSUSE people involved. In Nicuragua Julio and SUSE-NI organize one of the 3 events in Nicuragua. He wrote a lizard blogpost last week about it. In Venezuela Alex Barrios organize the event in Mérida, Hector Mansilla doing one in Santiago de Chile and Ricardo Varas Santana in Coquimbo/La Serena, Chile. Ricardo Chung organize an event in Panama City (he also did some pre-events), in Ecuador José Antonio Oramas Mogrovejo. In Mexico help Mauro Parra-Miranda and Miguel Angel Barajas organize events for the Flisol. Sometimes are such things like my mail are needed to bring things to running. But I did more the chilean openSUSE guy like to have a chilean Geeko and a banner for her event. Javier translate the posters from Jimmac together with me. For Nicuragua, Chile and Venezuela we organized that one of the organizers get all DVDs and the other stuff for the whole country and distribute it to the other cities. “Postmaster” AJ had a lot of work to do with it :D

    And now the first packages in Venezuela are arrived. It was a little bit like Christmas not only because there was a lot of packages but the fun about the things in it was the same. For Venezuela that means not, that are the medias are available where the openSUSE Ambassadors are. Like Alex Barrios wrote in his blogpost about it they go to all 19 places where the Flisol take place in Venezuela.  And because the medias are there it would be installed the organizers are really all happy to have them. Actually I think openSUSE made some new friends there because our help was uncomplicated.

    A few things about last weekend

    März 17th, 2010 von buergermeister

    I think I have to say a few words about the last weekend. There was an event and I was there. Yeah I was there. That decision wasnt easy for me. But a lot of friends wished to see me there. I decided that really at the last moment and I felt not really lucky there. Yeah I was happy to see many friends and it was a good feeling with the things they said to me. There was e.g. Wobo from MandrivaUser who said to me thx for invite him last year and that he is lucky that they Mandriva Community has now a booth there. There was the “Fedora Gang” with kital and Christoph.  There was Unki, Martin, Michael and Roman (juliux was there too but he was on the booth of OTRS) from ubuntu.  From Dresden there was Tokoe,  Stefan (he was last time here at Launch Party) and Felix for representing the KDE project. This time openSUSE supported KDE with DVDs again but last time I had to carry them a farther way :D (Henne please force Jan next time to take some KDE-CD) There was Matthias and Rainer from the FSF I meet again and a lot of friends more. I can say thats my family because of that I sort this entry in the categorie “Family Affairs”.

    For the openSUSE the event was good and not so good. First Jan asked me for the registration process and I answered him he can use me as the second person that is needed for the process. But I said to him search for another persons for the booth, so that the booth is supported when I not come to the event. He didnt do that after a while he wrote a mail to Thomas and me and asked again. But Thomas had no time because our company had a workshop and a booth at this event too. After this he begun to search. There are not really a lot of openSUSE people for support a booth in Germany! When you look at the Ambassador list there are some people more but only Jan, Thomas and me runs the presentations at the events. Actually there was help from the Boosters, Petr came from Prague (I hope your enjoyed the visit here). That was second time a Booster from there was here at a event. I have to say its always a pleasure to work with them and I looking forward to meet Pavol and Michal at Linuxwochen in Vienna.

    A funny thing for me was Alexander Graf was here too and Cornelius had the keynote (ok the organizers offered it 14 days ago) for me that looks as we communicate not really good. We have a page in the wiki for the event. But I cant read there which openSUSE people have talks on the event :( Another thing is the event has a forum for Linux newbies Martin had always an talk there next year we have to do that again. Maybe I do that but that depends on my feelings to some of the organizers, this year I decided no support with talks or workshops (also they asked for that). I know isnt really good for the project but please respect it.

    So now after so much bad things the good things. Like Jan wrote we handed out 800 DVDs (Fedora handed out 250) I find it funny but the visitors always asking are they for free? No I am not wondering anymore, Martin had last time I saw him here a flyer on the desk “yes its openSUSE 11.0 and its for free” and I am very sure I made for Henne such a thing for LinuxTag too. I think Petr can affirm here is a local openSUSE community. Next time we have to concentrate to involve them in the project. For this time we involved Kai Uwe (for me is kub). Jan blogged about it he develop a colour management system called Oyranos and some other stuff for color managment. Sure its available in the OBS. Its a interesting thing for people like me but not really for other people. Its hard to find co-developers or people they test it. Last year Kai Uwe did a booth sharing session for it here at this event but he wasnt really happy with it. So I was very happy to hear that he going to Libre Graphics Meeting this year. Jimmac please look after him, he is a part of the openSUSE family ;) But we had not only fun on the event even before. On the friday evening we had a nice dinner (without the planned cigar :( ) at a greek restaurant. We that means the whole bunch Petr, Jan and Kai-Uwe for the openSUSE booth, Ines, Stefan and Bernhard for the invis server project which is based on openSUSE and the people of my company too and we showed our openSUSE related work to. We had a presentation of a cluster and our managment tools for virtualized networks, together with megware sure the cluster runs with openSUSE ;) Petr asked what can help us with our work and actually there is a thing infini band drivers for 11.2 :D Ooh one I forgot Ingo from RadioTux was at our dinner too, because he slept at my apartment (and he uses openSUSE sometimes :D )  We had really a nice evening and the next day on the social event too. Yeah I was there funny thing to become a invitation to it from the organizers, I am sure they forgot I am not corruptible with such things. And the second funny thing, all the years I was in the organization team I had no social event because I organized one of the evening events for the visitors. On the end I dont know was the weekend good or bad, good was to meet a lot of my friends and have some fun with them. Bad was the feeling about the event, because I did it like I all things do with my heart for some assholes in the team its easier to go because they do it only to be one time in the year important. But thats another story.

    Few things from and about the art team

    Februar 24th, 2010 von buergermeister

    There has been some time ago since the last blogpost about the openSUSE Art-Team. Now is time for a little status update.

    I could say the art team has begun to working. Actually we have some tasks and working on it. Currently we use the wiki as platform to sharing ideas and proposals, I know isnt the way to do it but is works for the moment. When you like, you can visit the pages and tell us on the opensuse-artwork list if you like some of the proposals or when you have a idea for one. Artists are always hungry for feedback ;)

    But you can not only go to this list when you have critics or ideas for artwork. When you need artwork you can go there too, there are always guys hungry for doing graphics and such stuff. Tell them what you need and what you have in mind and I am very sure they help. Raul for example think we can offer to help with hackagotchis and yes we can do this. So tell where they can find a source picture and you get your hackagotchi.  But remember hackagotchis are fast done and logos not. So for some artwork give us some time, we try to find as team the best solution. So keep in mind when you need artwork going to the opensuse-artwork mailingliste there are specialists for support openSUSE with artwork.
