As some of you know I develop mostly KDE stuff, but last year I had a loss. So when I moved to Argentina I sold a bunch of things and had to buy them again when I came back to Brazil, there are two still that I couldn’t afford: A printer and a monitor.
Stuff I develop: Apper, colord-kde, print-manager, libdebconf-kde, packagekit-qt2 and aptcc
What I Need & What You Get
The monitor is really important so I can use my desktop PC wich is far more powerfull than my work laptop, using my desktop allows me to run several VMs to test the different PackageKit backends and make sure Apper runs fine.
The printer is also important because as you know I also develop print-manager which got some real cool improvements but still misses some stuff, though it’s not completly required to have a printer and do this development (which most of the time was done without real printers), I’m now in the adding a new printer phase, so yes I need a printer.
The monitor helps me mostly with testing my stuff on different distros and different setups.
In order to complete print support
To understand the values:
Monitor Dell 23″ costs R$ 799,00 -> ~400,00 US$ (the same one is 250$ in US, Brazil and it’s abusive taxes..)
Samsung SCX-3005w costs ~ R$ 450,00 -> ~225,00 US$
I’m completely happy if I just reach the goal, so I can be more productive in my codings, if the goal is reached I’ll consider your donnation as a personal help (which of course will help me keep coding in KDE).
Other Ways You Can Help
If you can’t help by donating that’s ok, I still need people to test, code and even write docs.
print-manager and colord-kde need especial testing since it doesn’t have much users.
