Social Desktop


At last year's Akademy the vision of the Social Desktop was born and first presented to a larger audience. The concept behind the Social Desktop is to bring the power of online communities and group collaboration to desktop applications and the desktop shell itself. One of the strongest assets of the Free Software community is its worldwide community of contributors and users who belief in free software and who work hard to bring the software and solutions to the mainstream. You can find more of this conceptual background on the slides from the keynote at Akademy 2008.

All the data from the opneDesktop.org websites is accessible via the open collaboration services api: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/open-collaboration-services

You can find more information, screenshots and a demo video about the KDE implementation here: http://dot.kde.org/2009/05/01/social-desktop-starts-arrive

Ideas are:

- More plasmoids using the Open Collaboration Services API

- Knowledgebase plasmoid: a plasmoid where users can directly query an online knowledge base system. For example a searchline, most popular questions from today and alltime. And a direct link to the person who asked the question and provided the answer. You can ask how you configure some specific option in KDE for example. You will get an answer or get the option to post this as an open question into the system.

- Activity plasmoid: For example.
* A friend of mine posted a new blog entry
* A friend of mine uploaded a new application or wallpaper on KDE-Look.org
* A friend of mine is going to the Linux User Group meeting tomorrow.
* There is an update for an application I am fan of
* A friend of mine committed a new feature in the KDE SVN
* Someone was on my profile page and offered me a KDE related job
* A friend of mine is now a fan of "Amarok"

- Microblogging screenlet for GNOME

- More Get Hot New Stuff (GHNS) integration in KDE

- Integration of GHNS in GNOME/XFCE/LXDE

- Enable mobile integration e.g. an app or theme downloader for Android

- Locate and find friends near you by implementing an Android friend finder

- Integrate the OCS API in your website or webservice (e.g. kde-forum.org did this)

- Create an OpenOffice.org addon that fetches templates from opentemplate.org

- Up/Download buttons in save dialogs from several apps (such as Blender, Scribus, Inkscape...)

- A Google Gadget which can fetch data (e.g. Wallpapers) from OCS compatible sites

 opendesktop applet KDE SC 4.5

 by Goldfinger on: Jul 29 2010

I like to see, the plasma applet opendesktop has got some bugfixes in KDE SC 4.5 RC3. It's showing users nearby. This was available only in the first few versions of the applet but was broken for a long duration now.

In configuration dialog it is possible to enter and to send my location. But this data is never used. The data is overwritten with data retrieved via plasma-geolocation-ip.

My real location is 50-100 km far from geolocation-ip location.

I would like to enter my real location, maybe in plasma-applet opendesktop dialog, or in system settings and use this for all activities from opendesktop.org.

Is it enough to write it here, or do I need to write a feature request?

Is SocialDesktop (OpenDesktop) Activities plasmoid stable in KDE SC 4.5RC3?
On 4.4.x it was so unstable that I couldn't use my desktop (plasma-desktop crashes as I mentioned in the previous comment).

I cannot say it's stable but at least it does not crash plasma and it has a list of users nearby. The meaning of the empty "News" folder is not clear for me. You can enter some values in the configuration dialog, but this is without effect.
