Re: GSOC announced

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


One thing I've always felt was lacking from Linux multimedia creation was a 
sense of workflow that new users could latch onto. By this, I mean that I have 
friends who want to start using things like QJackCtl, Qtractor, JSampler, etc, 
but have no idea how they all fit together or what else they might want to 
integrate into their setups (ie, Jack Rack, Jack Capture, Calf, etc)

I imagine KDE Activities could be perfect to guide users toward sensible 
workflow setups. Or maybe more generic pseudo apps, like some shell scripts or 
.desktop files, that would launch a bunch of applications that typically fit 
together, would be nice.

Just a thought. Not entirely fleshed out but maybe it is an idea.
