In Ubuntu 16.04 we will finally be able to move the launcher around it seems.
 
Playing with the upcoming Unity 7.4 :D
I prefer the launcher on the left, but I have a lot of friends who would like to move it on the bottom...

Hey +Victor Thompson​,
I just read this mail from +Nicholas Skaggs​:

https://lists.launchpad.net/ubuntu-phone/msg17242.html

You guys are about to implement streaming services into the music app? Wow. Didn't think this would come in the next 2years.
Can you tell us more about it? What kind of services and how it will be handled?
Thanks

+Sid Payton The team is investigating the support that would be needed from the platform side of things (decoding, etc). We're still thinking about the UI portion and how all this would work when used on a phone, tablet, and PC. I don't think you'll see it in the app for awhile. You'll probably see us implement a converged/responsive version first.

So to answer your questions: 1) We intend on having a pluggable interface for a few services--design-wise. It may just start with one service, however. Think Libre.fm, Google Music, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon. We still need to investigate. 2) We're still looking into how it will be handled, both in terms of platform support and in terms of the level of integration with the user's local music content.

I need your help guys:

Some of my folders on my OwnCloud Server shall be synced to just to my Laptop. My desktop PC shall just have access to it. Not sycning it to my PC.
Is that somehow possible?
Maybe even with a folder beeing created by owncloud client on my PC wich just acts like a tunnel. That would be perfect.

Is this possible? If yes, how?

Yeah, the solution would probably to create a separate user, give that user the share, read-only and it'll work...

I actually need some help with this. If someone could point me in the right direction or give me some updates on the subject this would be great.
+Oliver Grawert​ or +Daniel Holbach​ do you guys know who I have to ask about this?
 
My interest in LXC/LXD:

Here's what I want to do.
I use my laptop  for business and after work for private stuff.
My private stuff also consists of installing various packages trying and experimenting.
But since I use it for work as well all my experimenting must not break it.
So I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 as the host system. Windows for work in a VirtualBox.
I've been using Ubuntu in a VirtualBox as well, but I don't want to do that any more.

I thought of using KVM instead of VirtualBox but then I read this article few month back and now I would like to use it for my private Ubuntu guest system:
https://insights.ubuntu.com/2015/05/18/lxd-crushes-kvm-in-density-and-speed/

So my question is:
Is there a easy way yet, so that I can install a Ubuntu desktop version easily or what is the status of it.
My research brought me here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2271655&page=4
seems like a dead end.

I know Canonical uses LXC for their Unity8 session on the desktop. It would be ideal if this service could be expanded so that one could choose which Linux system to install.
Are there any road-blockers or does anyone have more information for me?


I also think this would be a really handy feature for professional/business users in general. Maybe it could be implemented in Ubuntu for everyone to use.

This way the laptop is always in a usable state.  One could do snapshots of the production guest and roll back if needed. When data is safed on the host or in the cloud, you even don't have to worry about ever loosing your data when something happens to your production system.

Any help is welcomed.
Maybe something like this is already planed +Nicholas Skaggs ?
Just a short update would be nice.

Thanks +Oliver Grawert​.

+Jorge Castro​ Basically what I want to do is having one host machine which is Ubuntu LTS with nothing more than needed.
And one Guest System (Ubuntu with Desktop ) from where I can install and alter everything (except the kernel) so that I don't break my host System. Because the host also contains my VM for Work.

Ideally, I would also be able to make snapshots of my guest Ubuntu and roll back if needed. I don't know if this is possible with LXD. I just read that it's so much faster than KVM but couldn't find anything on how to install the Desktop Version with it.

LOL. Bluetooth and NFC don't work (not that anything uses NFC yet on Ubuntu AFAIK), but GPS does work now. Battery life isn't great. But I've pretty much been using only Ubuntu on an N5 for 2 years now. No, all the apps I want aren't there, or can't even necessarily be written yet, and the webapps aren't all that great, but it's generally survivable.

Why haven't I read about this new feature anywhere here?

The music scopes now keep playing in the background.
It still stops when you switch or go back in scopes, but it shows what the future for ubuntu scopes looks like and is actually usefull.

Now I'm just waiting for embedded video playback and music in scopes beeing handled by content hub so that it keeps playing even if I switch scopes.

Just loving it. Good work.

+Ilonka O.​ Because the music app just plays local music. With the scopes I can search for a song or playlist on soundcloud and can now keep listening to it while working or what ever I'm doing.

Running your linux desktop in an LXC container is doable but remember the container will be using the same kernel as the Host OS.

You might want to take a look at something like:
https://github.com/ustuehler/lxc-desktop

There are other solutions to explore as well.

"Snappy" concept is in it's early stages. But very promising, IMHO.

And i am absolutey sure, that RPi 2 will be supported very soon. As well as NVIDIA Tegra 3 architecture.

Both are in the way becoming "industrial standard" in germany.

https://plus.google.com/+AudiUK/posts/ER9nTTPdjzA

Becoming part of "Google Auto". Now clear?

What's that?

First, it's a $35 quad core ARM hardware with 1 GByte of RAM, called "Raspberry Pi 2", running UBUNTU.

Then it depends, what YOU want it to be:

It can be a #CEPH storage brick:

Connected to a Gbit Switch, then several Raspberry Pi's 100 Mbit network connectors add up to a super fast storage system with parallel download to your client machines.

Then it can be a server:

Web, FTP, SMB, NFS, OwnCloud, database ....

It can be a "Snappy Server"

"Snappy Servers are normal Linux servers, but configured a little bit different: You can install and run Redhat, SuSE, Debian, Android Linux distributions in parallel, totally independent from each other. In only 1 GByte RAM? Yes, thanks to LXC and KSM (Kernel Samepage Merging). Running on one "brainsplit" Linux kernel, multiple, identical binaries only are stored once in RAM. Clever, isn't it? It's an old UNIX feature!

It can be your desktop computer:

What? With only 1 GByte? Yes! Linux isn't wasting so much resources, compared to Windows. Absolutely sufficent for home and business use.

It can be a terminal server:

AMD 8350 with 8 cores and 32 GByte is about $500. But you can run easily 50 terminal clients on it, thanks to KSM. #Citrix like. You even can run Windows in a #KVM container, accessing it via RDP. Graphics output redirected to your -> Raspberry Pi desktop!

It can be an external, accellerated 3D graphic card:

A Raspberry Pi 2 has a GPU, that is extremely fast. 24 GFLOPS. That's on par with INTEL core i5 GPU. But only consuming 2.5 watts! See yourself: https://youtu.be/0j-Wakm5B84 Traditionally, in UNIX, you can redirect graphic output to other machines around the globe. So feel free to redirect it to a Raspberry Pi 2 on your desktop. Or to many Raspberry Pi's at the same time, adding up to a giant screen. You only need to type in 2 commands:

"#xhost +" and "export DISPLAY=IP:0.0".

That's it! Or use http://synergy-project.org/

It can be a compute cluster:

Many RPi computing power add up. GPU can be used for floating point calculations, too. It's open source.

It can be a storage cluster:

Using CEPH, you can connect up to 4 external 4 Terabyte drives to each Raspberry Pi 2. 10, 20, ...100 slow Raspberry Pis (only 100 Mbit each!) add up to an ultra fast storage system. IBM Tivoli class! A highly "Redundant Array of Inexpensive Servers"!

It can be a FIREWALL:

Add a second 100 Mbit (or Gbit USB 2.0, limited to 222 MBit then!) network adapter, install your firewall GUI, that's it!

It can be a (MESH) ROUTER:

Add 2 or 3 WLAN adapters, install #OpenWRT, activate B.A.T.M.A.N. protocol, and you have a zero admin automatic #MESH ROUTER!

It can be a machine control unit:

With 40 external GPIO connectors it can be used to control all kind of machines, robots, drones, ... Even realtime OSes are available for RPi. 50 microseconds resolution.

Finally, It can be a "training and testing machine":

Since UBUNTU on RPi 2 is absolute identical to UBUNTU on big XEON iron, you may silently check out any possible configuration for final use on really big machines.

Have fun!
