Software Updater Changes in Ubuntu 13.04

I’m excited about the work and just wanted to highlight it here. See the difference for yourself:

Old ViewNew View

This hasn’t landed yet, but there is enough time before 13.04 that I’m confident it will make it.

A bit about what you’re seeing in that new view:

  • The “Backup” text and icon is being pulled from the .desktop file for the app.
  • “Backup” has subitems because there are some updates that only “Backup” depends on.
  • Updates that are not apps but are part of the base system (i.e. “on the CD but no .desktop file”) are under “Ubuntu base”.
  • For flavors, that should intelligently change to “Xubuntu base” or whatever and use the right metapackage.
  • Notice that the package name is no longer shown, so make sure your package descriptions are high quality!

First game for the Ubuntu phone OS

ubuntu for phones first game1Across the latest weeks, step-by-step the developers unveiled the Ubuntu phone OS, allowing interested persons to observe swiping gestures, native applications, implemented lenses (such as the People lens), home screen, etc.

Furthermore, especially at CES 2013, the developers demoed interesting aspects of Ubuntu for phones, like for example, usable image-taking-capable camera, editing functionalities, (web-)browser, items proving that the innovative operating system has already received support for both commonly-used and complex activities.

Hours ago, Ubuntu’s Alan Pope shared an interesting image, where one can observe a game running on Ubuntu for phones.

Ubuntu Phone OS Clock: Clock utility on Ubuntu desktop

Ubuntu Phone Clock is an interesting application that displays a clock inside the already known and appreciated Ubuntu for phones’ home screen-like shape.

Launching the application, exposes a fancy app view, containing a clock and constantly-changing background items.

The “clouds” are constantly rendered with new and new colors, action paired with a moving pointer and new behind-the-clock visual items.

By default, launching Ubuntu Phone Clock positions the time utility on the bottom-right corner.

Closing the application is as clicking on its x button.

While the time app can’t be dragged with the mouse pointer (only), holding the keyboard’s Alt button and dragging the app, allow the user to reposition it on per-user-preference desktop areas.

How do we install Ubuntu Phone Clock 0.1?
Add the following official PPA (Quantal)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:barbosanascimentogabriel/ubuntu-phone-clock

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-phone-clock

Launch Ubuntu Phone Clock via the Dash by typing Ubuntu phone clock in the search area.

Facebook Not Working With Gwibber

Facebook doesn’t currently work with Gwibber (the Facebook feeds aren’t updated – bug HERE) and this bug affects Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 and probably older Ubuntu versions as well.

Update: This bug also affected Ubuntu 13.04 (currently under development), but a fix was pushed a few minutes after publishing this post. Hopefully the fix will make it into older Ubuntu versions soon.

There is, however, a work-around which I can confirm it works for Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and 12.04 Precise Pangolin – so here’s how to apply it and get Facebook to work with Gwibber again!
