New design for Calculate 17

Added by Adrien Daugabel almost 2 years ago

We are happy to announce the completion of a new design for Calculate Linux 17. The last few years, the design changes only in the main versions of the distribution. This time it took almost two years. Therefore, we have made every effort to make a really quality design. You'll see our favorite characters, this time conquering the mountain peaks.
In addition, CLDM MATE upgraded to version 1.16 with the transition to Gtk3 libraries. Migration

Calculate Utilities 3.5 beta released

Added by Elena GAVRILOVA about 2 years ago

language Russian

The first beta of Calculate Utilities 3.5 has been made available. The brand new sys-apps/calculate-utils package now features server configuration tools, even though only only basics are supported for the time being, such as database deployment, LDAP server configuration, creating accounts for Unix users, files and configuration backups, etc. We completely rewrote the server utilities. Server templates were moved to the Calculate overlay. Two more USE flags, backup and server, were added to the package, which stand respectively for creating backups and server configuration. Until they have been implemented, the new server features will not be available for Calculate Directory Server. Instead, a transitory solution called Timeless will be released regularly, to be later merged with CDS.

New mirror : Fast and furi... French ! (1 comment)

Added by Adrien Daugabel over 2 years ago

Hello all,

There are more and more Europeans users of Calculate Linux !

But, in France and other Europeans country, the download speed from Russian mirrors (to download packages) is very slow.

So, I decided to setup a mirror on my personnal server, for my own use. But it's self-centered ! So I decided to contact the Calculate Team to add my mirror in the official calculate Linux list !

A developer accepted my proposal, and I am happy to announce that a new mirror is available to Calculate

Migrating to KDE5 Soon (7 comment)

Added by Elena GAVRILOVA over 2 years ago

Hello all,

Here is some news from Gentoo maintainers:

KDE Workspaces 4.11 has reached end of life and is no longer supported by upstream. It is therefore recommended for all users to upgrade to KDE Plasma 5.

A detailed upgrade guide is available [1], but in most cases it is enough to switch to the new desktop/plasma profile, update @world, and emerge kde-plasma/plasma-meta:

eselect profile list
eselect profile set <target>
emerge --ask --changed-use --newrepo --deep world
emerge --ask --verbose kde-plasma/plasma-meta

If you normally use KDM to launch Plasma, note that it is no longer supported. Upstream recommends x11-misc/sddm instead which is pulled in by plasma-meta by default. OpenRC users should edit /etc/conf.d/xdm and update DISPLAYMANAGER. Systemd users should run: systemctl reenable sddm.service

Due to an an evolution of KDE upstream's release process [2], the traditional monolithic KDE 4 release is now split into three distinct components. This means that KDE Applications are now separate from the Plasma desktop and older KDE 4-based applications will continue to function as normal inside Plasma 5.
KDE Workspaces 4.11 will remain in the tree for a reasonable time, but be warned that it is unmaintained and may cause conflicts with newer versions of KDE Applications.
