You can install kbabel under Gnome still, but I just wanted to use gtranslator for the first time.
First thing to do is logging as root. Then install the following packages:
I take for granted you already have installed the subversion package. If you don’t have it, now is a good time to get it. (zypper in subversion).
Now you can create a new folder where you can download gtranslator’s source. I decided to create the new folder in /home/ricardo/gtranslator. Then run a terminal session, go to the just created folder and type:
svn co http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gtranslator/trunk gtranslator
Now we are ready to compile and install gtranslator, so we need to type:
- cd gtranslator
- make install
And gtranslator should be in the directory /usr/local/bin. Off to contribute! =)
I would like to thank openSUSE for sending me the contributor box which includes: A t-shirt (openSUSE logo on front, iContribute string on the back), an install DVD/CD, a couple stickers, a start up guide book, a lightflash, and a Linux Magazine subscription offer. That is what I got for being a member of the translation team. So if you want to start contributing, visit www.opensuse.org and check out how you can participate.
Good news for KDE users, Qt developers, and the open source community in general. As stated by Nokia, Qt cross-platform User Interface (UI) and application framework for desktop and embedded platforms will be available under the Lesser General Public License (LGPL) version 2.1 license from the release of Qt 4.5, scheduled for March 2009.

I am trying to port a Glui+Glut project into Glui+Openglut, and it’s been a hard time. So far I’m having a lot of warnings about duplicated fuction definitions such as:
- 284:1 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\GL\glut.h [Warning] “GLUT_RGB” redefined.
- 288:1 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\GL\glut.h [Warning] “GLUT_DOUBLE” redefined.
- 289:1 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\GL\glut.h [Warning] “GLUT_ACCUM” redefined .
- 414:1 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\GL\glut.h [Warning] “GLUT_WINDOW_STENCIL_SIZE” redefined.
In the header I only have the following graphics libraries:
- #include <GL/openglut.h>.
- #include <GL/glui.h>
And in the linker added:
So if you know how to make it work, won’t you please drop me aline? Thank you.
It’s just too late for reviews and things like that, but I’m sure some of you would like to read (in brief) about my last year.
Best thing of the year is my first daughter, Antonia. She came into this world on the last day of march, which was a surprise. Since I was working for a MS sell out enterprise at that time, and about 200 Kms away, I traveled as soon as I could to see her. Swear to me she is wonderful, and I see her as a Linux user in the near future as she enjoys so much as I play with Compiz =)
Work was fine while it lasted. Learned a lot of SQL tricks thanks to Alex Albanez, and had fun with Karen (.NET is not that bad) and Aldo (Gnexus genius) as well. Great people and I wish I still worked with them but when you are not having fun and disagree with so many things such as wrong technology choices, and others that I am not allowed to publish (screw it anyway), the best thing to do is to move on.
Talking about Linux, I became a proud translator for the openSUSE project, and lately joined the marketing team too. Also discovered the wonders of the KDE 4 desktop environment. It feels great giving it back, and real part of the community.
Now I’m looking for a job, so I hope it’s open source related. So far vacations are going well, fun with the family, in the right place.
