  • FOSS.IN Day 1
    December 2, 2009, 12:19 pm

    After a long time of excitement and joy, atlast FOSS.IN 2009 started today. Reached the venue at 10:30 AM instead of the 10 AM I had targeted. At the venue, NIMHANS convention centre there was a long line for delegate registration (surprise, I'm a speaker this time, no queues Smile ) and the weather was really hot and uncomfortable.

    I regularly connect to my father's Ubuntu PC using ssh to help or to transfer files through scp. I have been using ssh keys to make these logins password-less and I thought the method needs a blog post :)
    Generally a user can have two keys - a private key and a public key which we generate using the following process and then copy the public key to the remote machine. Remember, don't give anyone your private key.

    Recently after recompiling my KDE build, I was exploring what has changed in the few weeks when my notebook wasn't with me. Marco is really working hard on the netbook shell and I thought to give it a try. Man, it looks superb and I like that on my notebook :)
    Anyway, I switched back to the regular Plasma desktop and after I logged back in, plasma-desktop refused to start automatically. I tried removing my .kde, but no luck.

    I've been thinking of starting this before, but now I'm really compelled to. As given in the details, I am currently doing my B.E. from BMS College of Engineering, Bangalore which is supposedly one of the top 3 colleges in Bangalore.
    I was happy the day I entered the college and the hostels (which is more like home, for one odd exception to be discussed), but soon realised that its going to be difficult.

    So, four of us - Jatin, Megha, Me and Siddharth were selected as Sun OSUM leaders for the college, and Software Freedom Day 2009 was the first experience for our team.

    If Amarok is to be built from source the Qt Script Generator at is required. However after going through the compile steps in the package, the following errors are encountered

    make[2]: Entering directory
    make[2]: *** No rule to make target
    `../../generated_cpp/com_trolltech_qt_phonon/main.cpp', needed by `debug/main.o'. Stop.

    ecently I was working on a Qt app requiring Drag and Drop support. The documentation says that to use this on a QWidget, we need to set
    I tried that but the cursor still showed the "not -allowed" symbol. This was bit confusing making me think that there's some internal problem. But actually the implementation of the following event handlers is mandatory to make it work-

    void Dialog::dragEnterEvent(QDragEnterEvent *event)
