Ubuntu TV is looking for alpha testers !
Hello there to all. We are happy to be able to tell all of you that there is active development on Ubuntu TV.
If you would like to help out With Ubuntu TV please feel free to look at are Bleeding edge ppa. (It builds daily)
How to install
What you are going to need
518 mb ram (2gigs or more recommended esp if you want to use opengl)
A p4 or something like that or better (if you are running vbox I am sure you have a p4 or some cpu that is higher and better then that , again opengl)
mythtv 0.26 (a myth backend also )
& any other lens that you like.
make a virtual machine (best for now) install Ubuntu 12.04
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:u2t/bleedingedge
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-2d
How to start the TV
Place to file all bugs
I note from Developers
Many of you know that I (Joseph Mills (bobweaver)) have been working on this. I think that when the phone code comes out I will start porting more and more of this over to the Phone , But if you want to try this out feel free.
If you would like to hack on this there is many many fix me tags in the code. (esp in the shell.qml )
I will also be putting more things on the blueprints of launchpad.
This code only works on 12.04 there is NO plans for me to move this code up to anything else then 12.04. Because when the phone code goes public. I will be porting this over to that. So there is no point in re-writing libunity libdee or anyof that. When the phone uses qml also. Once the public gets the Phone code We will be able to go through that and look to see how they are reading/rendering lens and filters and all that stuff.Then integrate the older code to match this.
Some things that we are going to be working on in the next week. Feel free to help if you like.
