Ubuntu Developer Tools Center, a project to allow easy installation of common developer tools, has reached version 0.2. With this release, the project was renamed to Ubuntu Make, based on name proposals from the community.
Canonical announced « snappy » Ubuntu Core yesterday, a new cloud-optimized Ubuntu edition that uses transactional updates.
Below you can watch the snappy Ubuntu Core introductory video in which Ubuntu and Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth explains how snappy Ubuntu Core works:
Opera 26 (stable) was released for Linux today and if you’ve tried it, you might have noticed that, at least on a pretty fresh Ubuntu installation, Flash and H.264 don’t work.
So here’s how to get Flash and H.264 (used for instance by the YouTube HTML5 player) to work with Opera on Ubuntu. The instructions below should work for all Opera (26 or newer) channels: stable, beta and developer.
Ruby Version (enVironment) Manager (or simply RVM) is a tool that manages Ruby application environments and enables switching between them.
RVM has not been packaged for recent Ubuntu versions (it’s only available for Ubuntu 12.04, but it’s a very old RVM version) and to install or update it, you must run a script. To make things easier, WebUpd8 reader Rael G.C. has packaged RVM for Ubuntu and uploaded it to a PPA, for easy installation and of course, automatic updates.
If you’re using Ubuntu MATE 14.04 LTS or 14.10, here’s a quick guide for how to install and configure Compiz. If something goes wrong or you’re not satisfied with Compiz, the article includes instructions for reverting the changes.
Quick update for Ubuntu users: FFmpeg isn’t available in recent Ubuntu releases but that will change with Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet (currently under development, to be released in May, 2015).
Because Ubuntu MATE 14.10 was the first Ubuntu MATE release and it’s supported for only 9 months, the Ubuntu MATE team released Ubuntu MATE 14.04 LTS yesterday, which is supported until 2019.
GNOME 3.14 was released back in September and it includes some interesting changes like multi-touch gestures for both the system and applications, re-worked default theme, new animations as well as various enhancements for the code GNOME applications. More information HERE.
Unfortunately, Ubuntu GNOME 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) ships with GNOME 3.12 for the most part (there are even some GNOME 3.10 packages, like Gedit or Nautilus) but, as usual, you can install the latest GNOME (3.14) by using a PPA.
