Junior Jobs are bits of work that the KOffice developers have identified as being pretty easy but that they still haven't got the time for. If you want to get involved in KOffice, you couldn't do better than pick up one of these ideas, contact the responsible person or join us on #koffice at freenode, or on the mailing list [email protected] -- and start hacking.

When developing, you should use KOffice svn trunk code as that is where the code for the next release, is located. You can find some information on how to build it on the Calligra/Building page.

How to use that page

Anyone that wants to fix any of the issues on that page can just start working on it and when finished submit the changes to the koffice team for inclusion in the next release.

KPresenter 2.0 is the completely redesigned presentation application for KOffice2. It has been designed to become a fun and easy to use application for creating really smooth looking presentations. There are lots of nice, little jobs to be done here, so why not ask Zagge (as he's known on irc) for hints and pointers? Here are a few ideas to get started:


KChart Maintainer: Inge Wallin

  • Configuration tool for axes, including axis labels and grids (contact: Inge Wallin).


Kexi Maintainer: Jaroslaw Staniek (staniek at

  • Fix compile warnings in koffice/kexi/plugins/reportpgz/


Creative Applications


Krita Maintainer: Boudewijn Rempt ([email protected])

List of all Junior Jobs in Krita

  • Implement shortcuts to switch between selection modes (add, subtract, replace) for the Krita selection tools (contact: Boudewijn Rempt (taken))
  • Add option to png export for disabling metadata and filter them (like in the jpeg export filter) (contact : Cyrille Berger)
  • make the autocontrast filter an option of the configuration widget of the level filters as well as the brightness/contrast filter (contact : Cyrille Berger)
  • Implement remaining todo's for the background feature (see the TODO file in krita/plugins/extensions/backgrounds and contact Boudewijn Rempt)
  • add a "new image from pasteboard" widget to the new document dialog, a bit like the "Custom document" widget, but it would just show a preview of the content of the clipboard, as well as the choice of profile (web or screen) (see [1], contact : Cyrille Berger)
  • History docker for Krita. The undo/redo information is already available. Write a docker that shows the undo/redo information and allow the user to "slide" back and forward. A far more complex job would be to make it possible to remove selectively items in the undo history. Boudewijn Rempt
  • Alignment. The | KDE Hig wants all labels to be right-center aligned with the corresponding widgets, a change from KDE3, where everything was left-center aligned. This means we need to go over all our .ui files, all our QLabel's in the code and set the alignment to Qt::AlignRight | Qt::AlignVCenter. A nice way to pass through most of the Krita code!
