Berlin and Desktop Summit Talk

Really enjoyed the Desktop Summit, and meeting everyone there. The only bummer part was the network connectivity. My employer Collabora sponsored my trip and work.

My talk went well (slides), and we had a great time discussing things afterwards. LWN wrote an article about the talk (the article will be available for non-subscribers on the 18th of August).

During the BoFs I worked on gnome-keyring integration into the gnome-shell, as well as fixing bugs in gobject-introspection and integrating it into gnome-keyring.

Berlin really surprised me. Classier and more alive than I expected. Classy thunderstorms too. I took a couple hours to ride around on a bike between rain showers.

How to build telepathy-qt4 with alternate prefix

Just figured out how to build telepathy-qt4 in an alternate prefix and also look for dependencies in that prefix as well. Since I don't use cmake much these days, figured I'd post this so I could go and look back at it later. Depends on this fix.

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=~/the/prefix cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/the/prefix  .
make install

Or if on a 64-bit system:

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=~/the/prefix cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/data/build/telepathy -DLIB_SUFFIX=64 .
make install

Going to the Desktop Summit

I'm off the the Desktop Summit shortly. Going to be giving a talk about gluing together desktop crypto (Oh boy, there's a life size picture of me at that link. I wonder why it ended up so big? Hrmmmm....)

My first time in Berlin, and it sounds like it'll be fun. Also looking forward to getting to meet some KDE developers :)
