Roderick B. Greening

I am a Linux user since '93. I have used Slackware, Debian, Red Hat, Mandrake (Mandriva), Gentoo, and Kubuntu.

I have successfully switched many of my non-techie friends and family to Kubuntu, and now I am also running Kubuntu on the desktop and Ubuntu Server for some firewall and server needs.

I recently was involved in maintaining an overlay for Gentoo regarding special desktop enhancements and effects, some of which Kubuntu has recently integrated. The overlay was called Xeffects, and had many enhancements.

My blog is http://roderick-greening.blogspot.com and contains posts regarding my work in Xeffects, Kubuntu tips, etc.

I have been a Kubuntu member since October, 2008 (http://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-members), and have worked on many packages relating to Qt/KDE (http://launchpad.net/~roderick-greening/+related-software).

I am also a member of the Kubuntu Council (http://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-council). Feel free to contact me, or any of the other members, if you are interested in joining the Kubuntu team.

I plan to apply for CORE-DEV (Core Developer) as I learn more through packaging/mentoring as a MOTU. I also hope to eventually work full time on Linux, which has been my passion for many years. For now, I am happy volunteering my time to help out where I can.

In addition to packaging, I am also working on some of my own packages and applications. These can usually be found in my PPA (http://launchpad.net/~roderick-greening/+archive/ppa) or other related projects (http://launchpad.net/~roderick-greening/+related-projects). Currently, I am working on a KDE firewall front-end to UFW. It's in the early stages, and I had hoped to complete for Jaunty, but I had to shelve it due to other pressing requirements. I have also recently finished porting usb-creator to KDE for our upcoming Kubuntu Netbook release. It can be found here: http://launchpad.net/usb-creator.

You can usually find me via IRC (#kubuntu-devel handle rgreening), the ubuntu forums (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/ user roderick), or via my blog (http://roderick-greening.blogspot.com).
