After years of using Ubuntu and getting annoyed by useless crash report prompts (especially about VirtualBox and proprietary HP drivers) I decided to disable such reports. Any idea how to do it?

Here's the question in askubuntu:

More of my interviews in Finland, this time asking about refugees. Everyone knows about Syrian and Iraqi refugees, but what about Ukrainians?

According to the United Nation Refugee Agency, almost one million of people have left Ukraine at some point during the conflict. Where did they go? Why are the media ignoring them?

Could it be, that the truth doesn't fit the narrative they're pushing on us?
Here's the interviews, followed by some official UN data:

I've been doing some street interviews in Finland, revealing how little is known about Russia-related stories. There's like an invisible wall between Russia and Finland, blocking all the information.

Here's the first episode of the series, hopefully it's not too controversial, but it's already making a point. The next ones will be even more juicy. :-)

After a long time of inactivity, another version of Imaginario (dev) has been released!

There are not big visible changes in this version, but it contains one important change to make it compatible with the upcoming new version of the UI toolkit (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-ui-toolkit/+bug/1617745/).
Beside that, this version disables the header actions when no item is selected.

Note: Imaginario is available in the Ubuntu store totally free of charge. The development version (imaginario-dev) is also on the store, but it's sold for a symbolic amount of money, which stimulates me to keep the development going.

Another interview by yours truly: I've met a Russian man living in Finland, who turned out to have non mainstream opinions (not a Kremlin nor a Western propagandist) about Crimea, Ukraine, Russia and has had first hand experience of so-called colour revolutions.

It's going to disappoint propagandists from both sides, but it will surely give some food for thought to everybody.

(I'm not saying that I agree with all what he says, but his perspective is interesting nonetheless)

I'm excited that we will be working with the +The KDE Community to improve the development and distribution of the KDE platform for Ubuntu users (and beyond!)
With KDE having grown from a hobby project by a few volunteers 20 years ago to the large and central Free Software community it is now, our interactions with other organizations have become increasingly important for us. KDE software is available on several platforms, is shipped by numerous distributions large and small, and KDE has become the go-to Free Software community when it comes to Qt. In addition to those who cooperate with KDE on a tech...

Some considerations on information media, taken by random people in the streets in Finland.

Here I'll be posting links to video interviews I've been taking in Finland. The goal is to show how Russia and Russian related news are generally perceived by the Finnish public.
