Ubuntu
  • Canonical Show Off Converged Terminal App Design

    Reshaping the classic terminal app to fit multi-form factor world isn't easy, but it's the task that the Canonical Design team face as part of their work on Unity 8.

  • Canonical Plans on Improving the Ubuntu Linux Terminal UX on Mobile and Desktop

    Canonical, through Jouni Helminen, announced on August 15, 2016, that they were planning on transforming the community-developed Terminal app into a convergent Linux terminal that's easy to use on both mobile phones and tablets.

    Terminal is a core Ubuntu Touch app and the only project to bring you the popular Linux shell on your Ubuntu Phone or Ubuntu Tablet devices. And now, Canonical's designers are in charge of offering a much more pleasant Linux terminal user experience by making Terminal convergent across all screen formats.

    "I would like to share the work so far, invite users of the app to comment on the new designs, and share ideas on what other new features would be desirable," says Jouni Helminen, Lead Designer at Canonical. "These visuals are work in progress - we would love to hear what kind of features you would like to see in your favorite terminal app!"

HowTos

MY Linux desktop PC (dual core 3GHz Pentium D and 4GB RAM) has been showing its age recently so I looked online for ways to bring back some of its old snap.

I had recently upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and found, for the most part, that my old PC was still capable of running it quite well.

Much as I like my eye candy, I like a smooth-running PC better, so I decided to ditch the animations.

To do this, I used Classic GNOME Flashback, a 2D desktop environment that’s clean and easy to use. The quickest way to install it is to open a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T) and type these two commands (followed by Enter):

Ubuntu

I’m Sylvia, an artist, illustrator and game developer from Germany. I’m a huge fan of the open source operating system Ubuntu and I love to paint animals.

The Ubuntu releases inspired me to create a series of illustrations, each illustration depicting an animal from a release, in chronological order. I’ve just completed 25 animals, starting with the Warty Warthog (Ubuntu 4.10) and finishing with the latest release, Yakkety Yak (16.10). All animals have been painted with my favorite open source software Krita.
