Over 4 years in the making, thousands of commits, dozens of new features: it's all there, neatly packed in the newly released Inkscape 0.91.

For those wondering how and where to start contributing to open source projects. Gnome is one of the more friendly communities. Testing and packaging are also easy entry points.
 
As with every cycle, #Ubuntu_GNOME Team is always looking for new bloods to get involved. Starting this cycle, we made life much easier:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/GettingInvolved/Roles

Here is a full list of the needed roles within #Ubuntu #GNOME team which we need :)

Come and join us!
Important Notes. GOOD NEWS: You do not have to be a developer to join Ubuntu GNOME Community. There are so many things you could help, support and contribute with beside development. For more details, please see this UOS Session: HOWTO join and contribute to Ubuntu Communities.

Shotwell as a photo manager for tens of thousands of photos is a nightmare to use. Very unstable, crashes and lots of bugs unfixed for years such as the "not really deleted, even though it says OK to delete?". It segfaults for pretty much any operation involving more than 200 photos and also often just hangs when just browsing from network share. These are all bugs that have been filed and unfixed.

Horrible, that this is the default photo manager in Linux distributions. If anything this app is one example of failure of open source desktop models in not providing resources for apps like this.

For now it seems at least gThumb works well enough to import and do basic organization., https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/gthumb

I will try batch upload of say a thousand or so files later tonight and see if it segfaults like Shotwell, but so far it's doing OK.

So far gThumb for importing, browsing, indexing has been very fast and stable for test 3002 image folder.

On September 3rd, 2014, a disgruntled ex-developer erased from the internet the work of over 150 developers over four years. This is the story of the Bukkit Minecraft server project's demise, and how you protect your project from its fate.

OK I"m stumped. Desktop Ubuntu 14.04 Totem reads and plays AVCHD .mts video just fine. My cleaner 14.04 laptop doesn't. All the usual suspects like gstreamer plugins - the good bad and the ugly installed, is is ubuntu-restricted.

I'm suspecting that I have a patch/bug fix for the demuxer for the mts container for desktop, that reads the proper video format for mts container. Anybody has any ideas what I'm missing on the laptop?

Check and compare the versions. Personally I prefer to rely on vlc to avoid these issues.

Hi all, I'm looking for an Android Developer that can code a simple transporter/helper type app quickly. It takes intents, to help fill in a simple form that than gets posted to a website via REST API and JSON payload. It stores credentials (simple HTTP auth) of the user and also displays a listing of submitted content title+url link (JSON from REST API call).

It's supposed to be a simple, proof of concept app, which only helps in posting a single form to a website. This is paid and the expectations (weekend project) are not high due to the small funds and that it's a PoC.

If you're an experienced Android developer who has some spare time, and can find this sort of thing easy to do, please contact me. It's for a domestic worker rights site if that matters to you, and code should be open sourced.

I usually recommend developers wanting to start learning Unix/Linux that they should start with FreeBSD. The reason is the excellent Handbook which allow you to configure while learning and also the excellent man pages complete with step by step instructions and examples.

If you just went to get going, with a GUI sure, Linux is easier, but then you miss out on all the basics. As a user, I use Linux, but when I want to learn I use FreeBSD.
Starting with FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE, the bhyve BSD -licensed hypervisor is part of the base system. This hypervisor supports a number of guests, including FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and many Linux® distributions. Currently, bhyve only supports a serial console and does not emulate a graphical console.

So this Sunday was spent on much delayed clean install of FreeBSD 10.1. My BSD setup has seen continuous upgrades on the same drives since 4.6. Needless to say, there was a lot of old junk that was causing strange problems.

New features include the new http://bhyve.org VM system.

It was quick and painless to get everything I need up and running, mostly because almost all config files in FreeBSD which sticks to Unix roots, are text files with verbose man files. It's relatively easy to copy and diff the differences. Things just work, and when they don't are easy to trouble shoot, you look at logs, look up the man page and change some text files in /etc. Sure there is a lot of new tech and features, but it all feels comfortably familiar.

Do look at FreeBSD http://www.freebsd.org and give it a try. It works well even on very old hardware as a server.

Unstable cifs in Ubuntu 14.10 (or any other Linux).

If your'e seeing a lot of:

[138875.711948] Status code returned 0xc0000008 NT_STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE
[138875.711961] CIFS VFS: Send error in read = -9
[140235.140908] CIFS VFS: RFC 1002 unknown response type 0xe7
[140245.437773] CIFS VFS: RFC 1002 unknown response type 0x18

Add this to /etc/modprobe.d/cifs.conf:

#Disable caching and the CIFS oplog for stable NTFS network shares
options cifs enable_oplocks=0

modprobe -d cifs
modprobe -a cifs

For Thinkpad users with clickpads who just upgraded to Ubuntu 14.10 who want to disable touchpad but need to use the mouse buttons. The default settings are now quite good, it's just one line to add to the following configuration if you don't like the touchpad.

In /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf

Just add *Option "AreaBottomEdge" "1"* and logout/login and you're good.

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Default clickpad buttons"
        MatchDriver "synaptics"
        Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"
        Option "SecondarySoftButtonAreas" "58% 0 0 15% 42% 58% 0 15%"
        Option "AreaBottomEdge" "1"
EndSection

My preferences are quite similar. Thinkpad X40 as ideal laptop form factor, mechanical keyboards, Vim and generally just having terminals and browser to get everything done on a computer.
