Fedora 22 is just around the corner and while upgrading my machine, I decided to completely ditch Gnome’s Evolution in favor of Mozilla Thunderbird. I had already switched a while back, but still had tons of mail in an old local Evolution account I wanted to migrate. Unfortunately all HowTos I found on the web […]
Last weekend I attended Linuxwochen Wien for the first time. I heard a lot about the event, so I totally wanted to go there. Now that I’m back from Vienna, I am a little disappointed – but nevertheless happy I went there. The Austrian Linuxwochen (Linux Weeks) is a series of events all over the […]
Dear developers, please don’t use a programming language for configuration files. Seriously. Don’t. Just don’t. You are only making live hard for people. Here is what my polkit custom desktop policy looked like in Fedora <= 17: Identity=unix-group:wheel Action=org.freedesktop.packagekit.package-install;org.freedesktop.packagekit.package-remove;org.freedesktop.packagekit.system-rollback;org.freedesktop.packagekit.system-sources*;org.opensuse.cupspkhelper.mechanism.*;org.libvirt.unix.*;dk.yumex.backend.pkexec.run ResultAny=no ResultInactive=no ResultActive=yes I think this is pretty straight forward, but some people found it confusing […]

Instead of using nepomuk, kontact should be using akonadi […]
It turns out we have to leave early. Some people need to travel home and others have family duties – or both. Fortunately we worked hard and managed to complete our agenda. For now, I just put all the results, todo items and open questions into the wiki. It’s still a rough draft, I will […]
So we are sitting at Beuggen Castle and having some drinks after an awesome social event: A dinner in complete darkness at a restaurant called „Blinde Kuh“ („Blind cow“). If you have not yet had it, give it a try, it’s very interesting experience. The first day of FAD EMEA turned out to be very […]
