KDE, Gnome, Softpedia and 2click Update.

What is the relationship between KDE, Gnome, Softpedia and 2click Update in my life with Linux ?

As you can see at 2click Update this script is Gnome-centric. I wanted to see if it can be compatible in an easy way with KDE-centric distro, for example Kubuntu.

So I decided to make a clean migration to KDesktop Environment. Its been 2 days since I switched from Ubuntu to Kubuntu 9.10 x64. Nice…. Plasma everywhere… Fancy and beautiful desktop. Its obvious where did Windows 7 got the ideas for its latest User Interface.  Well, last night while I was working on porting 2clickUpdate v4.0 in English and also checking if 2clickUpdate is compatible with KDE, the Gmail-Plasma poped-up a «balloon» showing a new mail. Oh ok… lets see… Mail From «Softpedia Editorial Team». What !!!!… Here is a portion of it:


2click Update, one of your products, has been added to Softpedia’s database
of software programs for Linux. It is featured with a description text,
screenshots, download links and technical details on this page:

The description text was created by our editors, using sources such as text
from your product’s homepage, information from its help system, the PAD
file (if available) and the editor’s own opinions on the program itself.
[…….bla…. bla….]

The Softpedia Team

Where did they find 2click Update ? Is there a Big Brother (of Softwares) ?

I am not quite sure but it is possible that they are watching closely the launchpad.net. It can’t be a coincidence. In a recent comment here by Simos Xenitellis, he proposed that I should consider using a Version Control System (VCS) so that anyone who wants to contribute to the code, can easily do it with a distributed version control system. I decided to upload and maintain the code at launchpad.net . If anybody wants to contribute in anyway just follow 2click Update at https://launchpad.net/2clickupdate .

So what are you waiting for …. go grab the latest development code, open it with your favourite text editor and get your hands dirty with scripting !
