Hi, my name is Philip Cain. I'm 22 and you could call me an IT systems administrator and webmaster. Kubuntu is the primary OS on my desktop at home, and I hope to assimilate more desktops and servers at work. I plan on helping the Ubuntu community, and specifically the Kubuntu project, in any way I can. I'll do this mostly by adopting threads in the forums, adding [:HowTos: HowTo] wikis, cleaning the wiki, reporting/fixing bugs, creating artwork, answering questions on #kubuntu, and helping with documentation. Another area I'd like to help in is eliminating the "last mile" of required CLI usage from within Kubuntu.

 * [[http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=23981|Kubuntu Package Menu]] - This code I wrote was implemented in Breezy within the kubuntu-default-settings package. A better implementation of this functionality appeared in Ubuntu 6.06 with gdebi, and hopefully someone will implement something as elegant (kdebi?) for Kubuntu 6.10.

== Personal Kubuntu TODO ==

 * Improve Kynaptic/Kapture (DONE IN BREEZY)
 * [http://amarok.kde.org amaroK] CD audio playing and ripping (see this thread - [http://amarok.kde.org/component/option,com_simpleboard/Itemid,57/func,view/id,5092/catid,16/limit,6/limitstart,0/ integration with kioslave-audiocd and kaudiocreator)] (DONE IN LATEST VERSION OF AMAROK - NOT IN BREEZY)
 * Integrate [https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106582 SnippetBooks] into Kate (or kdeaddons kate-plugins)
 * Gecko rendering engine for [http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/view/976 Konqueror] (KDE4)

''The Last Mile - Removing the Command Line Interface''
(I need to check these for konsistency in Breezy. I don't know what has and has not been addressed).

 * Kynaptic/Kapture DCOP calls. Then my [http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=23981 Kubuntu Package Menu] can use Kynaptic instead of xterm and kdialog. Fixes need for dpkg commands.
 * [http://kconfigure.sourceforge.net/ KConfigure]. Fixes need for configure, make, make install, and/or checkinstall commands. (suggested on KubuntuSuggestedPackages)
 * [http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=17201 kio-locate]. Fixes need for locate and find commands (in universe now, but needs to be in main).
 * [http://www.simonzone.com/software/guidance/ Guidance], a bunch of kcontrol modules. Fixes need for manually editing startup scripts, xorg.conf, fstab, and also adds a better user/group GUI. (suggested on KubuntuSuggestedPackages)
 * [http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=9965 kssh]. Frontend for logging into a Secure Shell, but you still are using a shell, so maybe this is pointless… also, fish:/ (for SCP) works well in konqueror.
 * [http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=23761 KSystemLog]. Fixes need for tailing /var/log files.

== Availability ==
Part-time only; my full-time IT job and my family keeps me busy.
