Antonio Larrosa homepage

I hope the you find useful the contents of these pages. From this page you can access some programs I have made along with some screenshots of them and some info.


21/02/2001 - Made a small update to kbillar (now in 1.0.1) and the tutorial (html typos fixed, code unchanged)

28/01/2001 - The KDE development tutorial 1.1.2 is now available here. It's a new version with some important updates.

26/01/2001 - I've been making a new application in the last months, it's KBillar, in fact, it's not an application, but a billiard game quite different from the usual billiard games. Just check the screenshots for some eye-candy.

Btw, I'm still updating these pages less than I would want, but I'm afraid I don't have time for more, specially now that I'll have some exams. I'll finish them on the 20th of February, so I'll be back by then.

13/9/2000 - These pages have not been updated for a long time, but that doesn't mean that nothing happened during the summer, in fact, lots of things happened:

  • I received a netwinder machine (thanks to !) to test KDE and use it as presentation machine. It's a very small machine, with a StrongARM processor, 128 Mb ram and 10Gb HD.
  • I was contracted by SuSE to work on KDE during the summer, so I've been in Nuernberg (Germany) for over a month doing nothing but KDE development. Currently, I'm a SuSE developer with a partial-time job, so that I can finish my studies of Mathematics at the University of Malaga)
  • On August, Martin Konold and me gave a long tutorial at the Campus Party about KDE development.
  • I studied for my exams in September that I'll finish tomorrow.
  • Important: The "great" administrators in my isp deleted some of my mails from the server, so I've lost every mail from Sunday 23:15 until Monday 16:45 . If you sent me a mail around that time, please resend it again, and sorry about the problems. Yes, I'm going to change my ISP :( (I don't have to say that I don't recommend arrakis to anyone, do I ? )

18/7/2000 - There's a new bugfix release of my KDE development tutorial, 1.1.2 . You must update it if you want to compile it with the latest KDE CVS sources.

9/4/2000 - There's a new version of the KDE development tutorial, which includes a new chapter about KXMLGUI and some fixes to work with the latest KDE's cvs snapshots.

9/4/2000 - Next week I'm going to be quite busy, as I'll give a talk at my university (on Tuesday afternoon, at 19:30 in the 1.0.1 class of the ETSII Informatica for those of you wanting to go :) ) and another one at Leon's university (on Thursday afternoon), so pardon me if I don't reply your mail soon.

11/3/2000 - I've been somehow ill and busy the last few days, but I'm feeling better now . Also, next monday, I'll go to Madrid, where I'm going to give a couple of talks at the Expo-Linux 2000. I hope to meet you there :-).
