LoCo News

Real collaborative design with open source software

Martin Albisetti shares news of the recent Ubuntu conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which they plan on now making a regional conference with the help of the Uruguay LoCo. Albisetti reflects upon a conversation he had with Guillermo Espertino about how a "small group of designers that used open source software to design professionally had gotten together and started a community called Grafica Libre." He also shares a video and some of the artwork made by Espertino and the group.


Launchpad News

Launchpad for textual, graphical, and interactive browsers

Curtis Hovey gives a thorough review of Launchpad visibility issues (textual, graphical and interactive) in different browsers. Hovey stated: "There are inconsistencies in pages you might visit. Some parts might not work because Launchpad does not have a 'proven way' to solve a problem." Hovey highly recommends that users should use interactive browsers since they provide information as needed, and best performance to complete the task.


Ubuntu Cloud News

Scaling a 2000-node Hadoop cluster on EC2/Ubuntu with Juju

Mark Mims and James Page share their scalability test framework on Hadoop using Juju Charms. They also share the steps of their scalability testing process in a very detailed manner.

Their framework plan includes:

pick service that scales
spin up a cluster of units for this service
try to run it in a way that actively engages all units of a cluster
repeat: instrument, profile, optimize, grow


The Planet

Daniel Holbach: You can help: code review

Daniel Holbach puts out a call to the Ubuntu community for help with code review. Holbach states: "What we need most though is that if you can review code and upload changes you head over to the sponsoring queue and help reviewing."


Ubuntu App Developer Blog: Humble Indie Bundle: a few days later and Help Earn the Humble Indie Bundle More Money!

As announced last week, the Humble Indie Bundle 5 has arrived at the Ubuntu Software Center, and nearly 10000 downloads has been made in the first 72 hours. You can help raising money for the Humble Bundle, simply by giving the games a Facebook "Like" at their apps.ubuntu.pages.



IRC Council: New IRC Operators

Ubuntu IRC Council has published results from their recent call for operators and listed out and congratulated some of their new operators:

kkathman (op at #kubuntu-offtopic)
cproffit, bkerensa and djones (ops at #ubuntu)
holstein, astraljava and scottl (ops at #ubuntustudio)
darkwing (op at #ubuntu-devel)


Ubuntu App Developer Blog: Top 10 Ubuntu app downloads for May 2012

Ubuntu App developers state on their blog: "If we were to choose a theme for the most downloaded Ubuntu apps in May it would have to be games."

They list out 10 most downloaded apps in May (paid and free):

Paid: Braid, Oil Rush, BIT.TRIP RUNNER, World of Goo, Linux Format Magazine - Issue 158 - Beat the CIA, Steel Storm: Burning retribution, Fluendo DVD player, The journey down: chapter one, Linux Format Magazine - Issue 159 - Ubuntu vs. Windows and Family Farm
Free: Lord of Ultima, Command & Conquer Tibberium Alliances, CrossOver (Trial), Ryzom, Full circle magazine #60, Venedetta online, Tropical Stormfront LITE, Marble Arena 2, PDF Studio 7 Demo and Tribal Trouble 2

Mentioned list above include "only those applications submitted through my My Apps and Ubuntu App."


Jono Bacon: 'Download for Ubuntu' Button Campaign

Jono Bacon shares the new "Download for Ubuntu" button campaign to make it easier for users to find the Ubuntu download option on game and developer websites.


Michael Hall: Contributing to Ubuntu: A better Pkgme

Michael Hall calls for back-end contributors to James Westby's pkgme utility, giving very detailed instructions for new contributors. Hall states: "Currently there is a support for apps using Python and Distutils, apps compiled by cmake and apps written in Vala. But there are still many, many applications out there that aren't covered with these back-ends, including: Qt apps, HTML5 apps, Flash apps and more. That's where you, dear contributor, come in."


Thorsten Wilms: Switches in Unity menus

Thorsten Wilms shares plans considering switch widgets in Unity's network status menu. He notes that enabling/disabling could be handled differently in style and placement of the widgets and that the adoption of "light-switch" style widgets in point and click interfaces is a mistake as they are often unclear about whether labels refer to the current state or the state to change to.


Ubuntu Classroom: A few instructor spots left for Ubuntu User Days on June 23-24th 2012

Accessibility Team: The Year of GNOME Accessibility

The Ubuntu Accessibility team shares news of a new campaign launched by upstream GNOME Accessibility for improvements "including performance improvements when the desktop accessibility APIs are turned on, enhancements to the readability of WebKitGTK+ and improvements to automatic regression testing which ties in nicely with the renewed emphasis on QA and automated testing in the Ubuntu project."
