LXDE Developer Gathering in Taiwan from September 25-27, 2009

The “Software Liberty Asscocation of Taiwan” (SLAT) is featuring the LXDE community during ICOS 2009 – International Conference on Open Source in Taipei in September 2009.

Taiwan is the place of LXDE’s birth. And most of the LXDE core developers are  based in Taiwan. We are inviting LXDE developers to this event, which is co-organized by LXDE core member Andrew Lee.

PCMan: ” I think it’s a good opportunity to have a LXDE developer gathering or CodeFest.”

So, please join us in Taipei from September 25-27. Participants may get accommodation and food sonsorship. Remember to add your name to the dedicated wiki-page if you are joining us. Please also send a separate email with your information to apply for sonsorship to andrew AT linux.org.tw.

LXDE start pages in Portuguese

The LXDE.org start pages are now available in Portuguese thanks to Henrique P. Machado (zehrique) from Brazil who has translated the content. The set up of the language was done together with Mwei from Taiwan. We welcome contributors who are interested in having the LXDE start pages in their language. Please contact us through the mailing list of the translation project.

The Portuguese Introduction of LXDE

O “Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment”, é um ambiente de área de trabalho extremamente rápido, ágil e poupador de energia. Ele é mantido por uma comunidade internacional de desenvolvedores e vem com uma bonita interface com o usuário, suporte a múltiplos idiomas, atalhos de teclado padrões e características adicionais, como um gerenciador de arquivos com navegação em abas. O LXDE exige menos da CPU e consome menos memória RAM. Ele é desenhado especialmente para computadores em nuvem com especificações de hardware limitadas, como netbooks, dispositivos móveis (ex.: MIDs) ou computadores antigos. O LXDE pode ser instalado em distribuições como Ubuntu ou Debian. Ele provê uma rápida interação com o desktop, conectando-se facilmente com aplicativos na nuvem. O LXDE suporta uma gama enorme de programas, que podem ser instalados localmente com os sistemas Linux. O código-fonte do LXDE está licenciado parcialmente sob os termos da Licença Pública Geral (GPL) e parcialmente sob a LGPL.

xkb: New Applet for LXPanel

PCMan has added a new branch named lxpanel-xkb in the LXDE Repository.

svn co https://lxde.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/lxde/branches/lxpanel-xkb

It’s a new applet for lxpanel which will be a keyboard layout switcher. The original one in lxpanel is broken, and will be removed. The new one will be based on libxlavier, a good library handling xkb. However, we’re from Taiwan, and we don’t know how keyboard layouts work. So help is needed. If you’re a developer living in Europe or some other places requiring switching between different keyboard layouts, please help. (PCMan)

If you are interested in the development of LXDE, please also join our developers mailing list.
