Ubuntu 8.10 Beta Video – Changes to Nautilus Recorder Standard

Filed under
Ubuntu

While using Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex Beta i was able to use the new features in the Nautilus file manager. The first change to Nautilus that i noticed while using Ubuntu 8.10 Beta was the large Eject icon that appears next to mounted devices in the Places window to the left side of Nautilus. Clicking on the Eject icon unmounts the device while clicking on the device will mount it again. I found this to be quite useful and a quickway to mount and unmount devices in Ubuntu 8.10. The Natutilus file manager also includes easy to add, tabbed browsing. Now you can have multiple folders open in separate tabs. Create a new tab in Nautilus file manager y selecting File — New Tab or pressing (Ctrl + T). By right clicking on the tabs you can move them left and right or close the tab.

Ubuntu Touch OTA 8.5 Arrives with Fix for UI Freezes

Filed under
Ubuntu

Canonical has just revealed that OTA 8.5 hotfix for Ubuntu Touch has been released and users will begin receiving it during the next 24 hours.

We were expecting to see this new update for Ubuntu Touch land tomorrow or maybe next Monday, but it seems like the Q&A process has been smooth and no new problems have been spotted by developers or the automatic testing process.

This new update is marked 8.5 since it's a small one and comes at the halfway point between two major OTA updates. It only corrects a few problems that couldn't wait for a few more weeks, so it's likely that users will really appreciate it.

Ubuntu Bugs That Won’t Go Away

Filed under
Ubuntu

I grew up on a farm and ranch up until I was fourteen. It’s a tough life, best suited for tough people who can beat their environment into submission and produce the results needed to thrive. Should I ever have displayed the poor judgement to complain about something within earshot of my dad, I would get the same advice every time.

Tunir 0.13 is released and one year of development

I have started Tunir on Jan 12 2015, means it got more than one year of development history. At the beginning it was just a project to help me out with Fedora Cloud image testing. But it grew to a point where it is being used as the Autocloud backend to test Fedora Cloud, and Vagrant images. We will soon start testing the Fedora AMI(s) too using the same. Within this one year, there were total 7 contributors to the project. In total we are around 1k lines of Python code. I am personally using Tunir for various other projects too. One funny thing from the code commits timings, no commit on Sundays :) Read more

Andy Rubin Unleashed Android on the World. Now Watch Him Do the Same With AI

Now that Rubin had shepherded smartphones from concept to phenomenon, they no longer held much interest. As an engineering problem, they had been solved. Sure, entrepreneurs kept launching new apps, but for someone who considered engineering an art, that was like adding a few brushstrokes atop layers of dried paint. Rubin wanted to touch canvas again—and he could see a fresh one unfurling in front of him. Read more

Building a culture of more pluggable open source

If there is one word that often percolates conversations hailing the benefits of open source, it is choice. We often celebrate many of the 800+ Linux distributions, the countless desktops, applications, frameworks, and more. Choice, it would seem, is a good thing. Interestingly, choice is also an emotive thing. Read more

A new frontier for open source: Linux will power our robotic future

"You know, with windows versus Linux, Windows got there first by a long shot. It was the entrenched party. So Linux is the scrappy upstart. In the case of robotics, open source got there first. The community grew up doing things the open source way. There was actually a period in the mid-2000s where Microsoft put a lot of effort into its Windows-based Robotics Developer Studio. It had really good features, but it's never taken off. So yeah, I think robotics are proving to be a different situation than what happened with personal computing." Long live Linux. Long live ROS. Long live open source. Read more
