#Telegram Desktop packaged for #flatpak. Enjoy!
Yet another app is packaged for Flatpak. Jan Grulich from our team has packaged the official desktop client for Telegram. And it was quite some task because the app is… well… wildly put…

+Eclipse Flatpak
Flatpak by +Alexander Larsson is officially released: http://flatpak.org/press/2016-06-21-flatpak-released.html

The first application I thought about that I wanted as a flatpak was Eclipse. Why?
1. The distributions tend to break it up in 187 small pieces, and you always need around 131 of them, but you don't know which ones... so I always give up on using that. So I end up downloading a tar.gz from eclipse.org. And that works, but I then have to create desktop launches and stuff to make it integrate in to my desktop. So having a package that just works, would be great here.
2. It is a huge beast of software, so it would feel great to have it sandboxed.

So, I basically took the tar.gz from eclipse.org and repackaged that in to a flatpak. It is sandboxed to only have access to ~/workspace, ~/.m2 and ~/.eclipse in your home directory. It have network access and read only access to /etc/hosts, and it also have access to some system bus.
The flatpak is based on Eclipse Neon RC3 for Java developers. I use RC3 since the final release would crash on startup. So if someone can get that to work, let me know!

The resulting flatpak kan be downloaded from google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLQBLebD-lOQnNjUzl0M19BVlE/view?usp=sharing

And the script I used to create it is found here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLQBLebD-lOVERNSjFidXlDMjg/view?usp=sharing

Some installation instructions (basically from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/flatpak/):
First we need the gnome 3.20 runtime which I used as a base
wget https://sdk.gnome.org/keys/gnome-sdk.gpg
flatpak remote-add --user --gpg-import=gnome-sdk.gpg gnome https://sdk.gnome.org/repo/
flatpak install --user gnome org.gnome.Platform 3.20

Then you can install the bundle using the command:
flatpak install --user --bundle eclipse-neon-rc3.flatpak

And to run it you click on the application launcher in the desktop environment UI, or by the command:
flatpak run org.eclipse.Eclipse

have fun!

I packaged my first application for #flatpak. It wasn't an easy task given the application I chose, but other than that, the flatpak developers made packaging of applications for flatpak relatively easy.
Since everyone is talking about flatpak or snappy these days I wanted to try it myself and package some application. I decided to start with telegram desktop client which was suggested to me as an application which would be nice to have packaged for flatpak. Once I saw the build instructions for ...

Don't want to comment on these two current police shooting episodes specifically as it is always hard to know exactly the turn of events from such videos. But in general I think that maybe the focus shouldn't be so much on the police for these things happening at a worrying rate, but rather on the NRA and their crusade for a society built arounds gun ownership. Because when you get to a situation where a very large subset of people carry guns all the time then you create an atmosphere where the police probably feels every possible encounter is a risky life or death situation for them, which unsurprisingly leads to jumpy cops who end up shooting people.

Doesn't mean that cops shouldn't be punished for wrong doings of course.

There's a +Fedora Project job open here at +Red Hat: Outreach and Impact Lead -- http://bit.ly/fedorajob. This job isn't on my team, but on the Open Source and Standards team. This is the job +Remy D was doing until recently. This is not a job for doing substantial engineering work, coding or sysadmin. This is a job for engaging with people, helping to lead and steer community teams from within and the side. The job's less concerned with direct engineering and more with all the other parts of a successful free software project (think marketing, docs, grassroots, outreach, localization), as a counterpart and right-hand assist to the Fedora Project Leader, +Matthew Miller.

Reading Boris Johnsson bitching about Obama recommending against Brexit the stench of hypocrisy is overwhelming considering his stance on Scottish independence. Of course that was the same kind of hypocrisy that SNP was reeking of in regards to Orkney independence. This is definitely not the age of being principled.
