A filter for blue light, Night Colors, could also arrive soon on KDE Plasma.
The developers have been working on color correction kwin (the KDE window manager / compositor) with Wayland .
Although the function Night Color is not yet implemented it is possible that it is ready for release Plasma 5.11 , expected next September.
The function that will be implemented in Plasma definitely will not be called ‘Night Light’, as on GNOME, but ‘Night Color’ and the operation is entirely analogous.
KDE allows you to easily customize the look and feel of your desktop by controlling different parts of the visual appearance. The combinations are almost endless so you have to play around with them to find which suits your tastes best. This quick guide shows how to configure every part of the KDE visual appearance, however, it’s not necessary to use the examples in this post, you can choose another set of icons, window decorations, colors etc.
The KDE Community announces the latest major updates to KDE Applications delivering primarily improvements and bugfixes. Plasma Workspaces and the KDE Development Platform are frozen and receiving only long term support; those teams are focused on the transition to Plasma 5 and Frameworks 5.
This guide explains how to set up a RAM directory in which KDE to store its cache, allowing it to load and run faster. It’s a nice improvement especially if you have old IDE/SATA drives with low read/write rates but won’t pretty much make any difference if you have SSD drives.
Linux Mint 17 “Qiana” KDE Edition is now available to try. It’s still a development release so it’s not wise to install it on production machines just yet. Based on Ubuntu 14.04, it will receive security updates until 2019.
One of the cool things about Linux is the freedom it brings. The ability to customize and change between desktop environments it’s just as important as changing between applications we use on a daily basis. Opposed to Windows, which offers only one graphical user interface, Linux allows you to choose from a two-digit list of graphical environments, based on your personal preferences, and nonetheless, hardware resources. This means that instead of always upgrading your hardware to the newest and greatest, you can still use in great conditions the hardware you already own. It’s really hard to say which one is the best but at the end, a good desktop environment makes using your computer fun and simple so basically, it’s really up to you to say which one suits your needs and preferences best.
