This is a short post just to say hello to everybody at the Ubuntu Planet
I’ve been around Ubuntu since its first version (back in the 2004) and now my work got me closer again to Ubuntu, so I’ve decided become a member of this community and start my process of developer in here.
I was always a very Debian guy, but for different reasons I found Ubuntu interesting and a project that I had to keep eye on. I still like Debian, but I use Ubuntu for my work and my home (well, actually I use Guadalinex).
I hope my work let me keep pushing bugs, translations, patches, branches and more no just to Ubuntu but Debian, GNOME and more interesting projects out there that we use.
That’s it for now. Soon, some news about the last Guadalinex version. Stay tuned
Hi, I need somebody tell me what is going on with Hal.
Lately I was working a bit with Hal and I kinda like it. As far as I saw, there is a GNOME plan for that deprecation and hal will be split into different pieces which will be integrated into other software. Such a udev-extras, libudev, DeviceKit-*, the kernel itself and so.
I’ve been reading quite a lot about all those changes and I don’t really get the reasons for this move. And I don’t really know how the things will work when the migration be completed.
No more hal at all? No hal-info either? just udev rules (which, btw, I find really confusing and ugly…)?
I hope someone could help me to see how the things will be at the near future around the hardware layer on GNU/Linux.
Time ago I found an interesting tool for the desktop. It’s Java client for Bugzilla called Deskzilla.
I’m not fan of Java at all, but I have to say that the application is very powerful and it’s not so slow…
Basically it let you fill bugs, search bugs (and save the searches) in a way a lot easier than the bugzilla itself. But the coolest thing is it let you make searches offline. It has even a screenshot editor to add marks, texts and more to the screenshots before to attach them to the bugs.
I don’t know, it seems very interesting and useful for who work everyday with Bugzilla.
The only thing is this is not any kind of Free Software/Open Source code, but they have special license keys for free software project.
Actually I ask one for working with GNOME and the give me one and ask me to public it so any GNOME’s bugzilla user can use this software for free.
If anyone want the GNOME key, just take it here.
