Fwd: KDE EDU on OS X


Hi people,

i read this post from Benjamin Meyer on kde-devel:

----------  Forwarded Message  ----------

A big hats off to the KDEEDU team.  Other then patching the admin dir (which
you currently have to do for every module) I had to do no changes to compile
out of the box all of the applications.  I have put some screenshots up here:

Or direct links here:

P.S.  With the very large icons showing up in the dock I very quickly see
 what applications have 128x128 size icons and what ones still only have a
 32x32 hicolor for its largest size :)

: Linux in Academia

Does anyone here know about newsgroups or mailing lists dealing with KDE/Linux 
at higher educations, such a University? I am especially interested in 
initiatives related to social science and humanities, which are traditionally 
not hot spots for Linux.

I am writing a book in Danish about Linux power tools (KDE, LyX, BibTex, 
OpenOffice.org etc.) for non-technical students and scientists at university, 
and I am thinking about doing it in English as a parallel projects. But first 
I am interested in knowing if somebody are already working with this?

Re: [kde-edu]: Linux in Academia

Hi Janus,

I am crossposting this to kde-promo <at> kde.org since they might be of help. 
Please also check out enterprise.kde.org. There is a database with success 
stories and I saw some universities mentioned.

Greetings,
eva

Check with SEUL, which has an educational mailing list and a resource 
list: http://www.seul.org/edu/

We have a ton of resources, though I'll have to look to see if we have 
anything specific (I have an intro course curriculum  written and posted 
there, but it is more on a technical level.)

HTH a little,

: Icon people wanted :)


Hi,

As some of you may have read on kde-core-devel, Benjamin Meyer, a
KDE/Mac developer is saying that we need bigger versions of our
applications' icons.  If anyone here is interested on working on this,
please do :) I tried to get something together myself in karbon14 just
now, but I seriously lack the graphics talent to be able to work with
it :(

cheers

Look interesting, but it altso looks as it is mostly ressources for primary 
and secondary school? Take this:

	"We are collecting resources that should enable the development and 			
	deployment (with the help of interested volunteers) of various open source 	
	software that can make Linux more desirable to educators and parents 
	interested in using Linux for their children's education."

What I have in mind is a book that provide concreat directions and 
recomendations for using Linux power tool for writing reports etc. for the 
non-technical interested person at university: KDE, LyX, BiBteX, OOo etc.

My book is currently only in Danish and "in the making":

<http://cvs.linuxbog.dk/forsker/bog/index.html.php>

Does a book like this already exist?

: KDE-Edu icons - Artist needed

Hi all

After my previous enquiry to kde-artist, I made a list of existing and missing 
icons for each edu application (list is attached).

Summary: all applications except KStars need a svg rendering for the 
application icons (it is not clear at the moment where the svg file should be 
committed in cvs).

From the svg file, the png icons in all format will be easily derived (with 
maybe a bit of work for 16x16).

So we need to start working on that, it would be nice to have it done before 
3.2 is out.
Any volonteer is welcome, even if you have only time for one icon! 

Thanks in advance,

annma
Icons in kdeedu
All apps need 128x128 + svg icons except KStars whose maintainer has the svg file but does not know where to
commit it.
Most apps only have cr16 and cr32 (only KVerbos has not, Kiten has only cr16 and KTouch has hixx notation)

WORK TO BE DONE: the priority would be to have a svg rendering for each app (except KStars)
(all icons are easily derived from svg, only 16x16 might require a bit of extra work)

These should definitely be committed to CVS.  It is not even legal to
distribute the icons under the GPL if you don't include the .svg.
