The Document Foundation (TDF), the organization behind LibreOffice, has begun to unwrap its plans for Online LibreOffice - a service similar to Google Docs or Office Online where users can work on documents online.
Users may soon be able to use LibreOffice online, just like Google Docs and Office Online.

Thanks a lot +Jason DeRose for backporting the latest Nvidia proprietary drivers for Trusty in the *System76 PPA*. I just installed Nvidia 346 on my trusty machine and it worked like a charm. Easy as a pie!

Day 1 with the Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition

The OS 

Apps
The apps in the ubuntu store are almost inexistent, but that’s something i expected. The terminal app it's just beautiful, of course non of us are going to use it on a daily basis,
but it actually has navigation keys and combinations like ctr-c. Give it a try :) $ apt-get moo.

Interface
You can browse the open programs by sliding the finger from the right border of the screen to the center. I’m actually impressed because it’s very smooth. 

Loading time
I don’t know why, buy when you open the list of contacts, the system configuration, etc. It takes from 2 to 3 seconds to display the options or content. It’s annoying. 

Here Maps
It works very well, i actually didn’t expect maps of any kind at all.

Music
It displays the songs in the device, popular tracks in Soundcloud, groove shark and youtube. I still don’t know if there’s some criteria to choose which songs are displayed to me.

The device it self
Storage
Just 4Gb free. Maybe i’ll by a micro sd card.

Camera
It’s not cutting edge. But it’s fine if you’re going to take pictures and share the on g+. 

Battery 
After 14 hours the battery is at 33 %, but i used bluetooth headphones for 30 minutes.

When i plugged the phone to my macbook with the USB cable. The phone wasn't detected as an external storage device, instead the system launched the Android file transfer application

Yes, that was it. Checked out pathwind just the once, before trying to play any music. Never suspected it had muted all system sounds. Sound is back.

Hello everyone, I have a question regarding the Ubuntu Phone. How I can move a file from the /tmp/ to /usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/ubuntu/lib? When I am trying to copy the file with the file manager it doesn't let me to paste it there. The permission of the folder is readable and executable. Thanks in advance

+'Jə - 'ə' The / mount point is mounted as read-only. So, apart from using sudo, you need first to remount that mount point as read-write, make the change and then remount back as read-only

The command for that is sudo mount -o remount,rw /

The whole process is to add manually the Greek keyboard files in order to be able to type in Greek. The actual support has been posted and will make it in the official images soon.

After I am strongly considering making the full jump to Ubuntu and having Windows in a virtual machine. Since most of the software I use also works on Ubuntu and in the case of development it's even better.

What do you guys think?

Do any of you use a linux distro as your primary OS?

+Pourya Shahroudi thanks, ive tried that, what seems to have fixed the issue is deleting all files in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d , but I had already emptied / removed everything in the repositories > other software list, and manually added pps's have been removed (a list in which I did not have backed up)

UBUNTU™, world, facing a U.S. trivial/prior art patents flooding problem

Problem with Apple™ (and also Microsoft™) trivial or "prior art" patents is: One invalid Apple™ patent is backing the other. So, the chance of getting just one #patent declared invalid, gets lower with number of trivial patents increasing, extremely raising costs for lawyers and court fee, typically to be paid in advance.

Next problem: With "free trade agreements" (e.g. #TPP, #TTIP) your government is signing to respect american patent law on your country's territory. You can't leave that out. "All or nothing!", they say.

Now have a look at Apple's brand new patent, allowing the GPS tracking of friends.

Problem: Back in 2008/2009 we already were playing the famous #Ravensburger game "Scotland Yard™" - life with Nokia™ mobiles, exchanging their GPS data in realtime over a central server, chasing a bad guy, periodically appearing with it's GPS data on screen of 3-5 participants.

Developed by students at University of Bonn, Germany in 2008/2009.

Now Apple™ is coming up with same mechanism, described with slightly different words, but, in fact, meaning the same.

http://sam.iai.uni-bonn.de/publications/GI2009_SyGo_and_location_based_games.pdf

Stupid cowboys, again pushing company stocks with ideas, they've stolen from other people?

IMHO, Apple™ is overpriced, 1000 fold

iOS - stolen: A #FreeBSD clone with Mach microkernel, called #Darwin
Objective-C compiler: Originally #GCC compiler suite, now changed to #LLVM JIT engine.

Most Apple™ #patents: Hot air! Same for #Microsoft trivial patent suite.

That problem now even becomes a threat for freedom of software development on #UBUNTUPhone, independent of license!

So be warned! These U.S. companies are 'evil'. Avoid doing business with these companies under all circumstances!!!

I see your point but Linux isn't for the every day GUI basic user. It's for people that know or want to know how to implement programs through code and get there was through the systems by the Konsole. Going about it this way is much more powerful and gives makes you less ignorant like most users who don't even know what an operating system is. No offense to anyone by the way.

I Need to reshare this to keep the news and petioning going and growing, we need to let them know we can't be ignored or forgotten, they can port there game to Linux and will be played by many Linux gamers world wide!

https://www.change.org/p/blizzard-poll-to-get-the-real-linux-numbers-for-a-linux-client
Linux usage has gradually been increasing over the years. If we use this source for example: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_os.asp (one of many sources), it shows Mac usage at about 10%, with Linux not far behind at 5.4%. Nevertheless, an important note is that statistics related to browser usage is most likely uncorrelated to statistics regarding gamers (of Blizzard games in particular). There was recently a petition that took of...
