    I'm using a Sify broadband connection at home, and I was delighted to see that they had a linux version of the login client. I downloaded and installed it, but it appeared crippled. It crashes frequently, losing net access, and lacks several features present in the Windows client.

    So, I decided to run it on WINE (WINE Is Not An Emulator). The following steps have to be performed for it to work-

    Again, a post after a long time, maybe was concentrating more on writing code ;) So, Mukthi 9.05 (Dunno why they used ubuntu naming conventions :P) was held on 1st and 2nd of May, and it was really fun and rewarding. Well, mostly because I got a chance to give a talk session on Qt Designer (which I later changed to Qt Creator).

    As pointed out on BUG: 187241 , Folder View applet didn't support navigation using the Keyboard keys, and launching using Enter/Return. This greatly reduced the usability of the applet as a replacement for the normal Desktop.

    I never thought I'd be having so much fun with KDE and FOSS Software as a whole. Its such a good way to learn things and contribute to something which is really beautiful.
    In January, I was studying Qt because I found it very interesting, and its cross platform nature really made me to plan serious development.
    Then I started to use KDE, which has a very intuitive interface for users. But here comes the real benefit - KDE is a Free Software, so anyone can contribute to the system and improve on it.
