Ubuntu: Ubuntu Wallpaper Contest, Charmed Kubeflow 1.4, and More

  • The Next Ubuntu Wallpaper Contest Needs to Focus on Quality

    A new long-term support release of Ubuntu is on the way, and so too is a brand new Ubuntu wallpaper contest.

    In recent years long term support releases of Ubuntu have tended to include a “greatest hits” package of supplementary wallpapers, often sourced from those that won wallpaper competitions in the preceding three releases.

    That approach has a logic to it as an LTS release, is, in many ways, a “best of” itself. Plus, there’s some real honour for those whose art is selected to ship in a version of Ubuntu that gets used across tens of millions of desktops, as opposed to just a few hundred thousand (which is still a pretty awesome feat, as is).

    But for the next LTS Ubuntu’s community team is going back to basics. They’re going to run a wallpaper contest that community artists, professional and amateur alike, can take part in. Further details on the contest are going be be announced at some point, but they’ve already begun hyping it up on their social media.

  • Smart, agile MLOps on any cloud – Canonical releases Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 | Ubuntu

    Today, the Canonical Data Platform team announced the release of Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 – the state-of-the-art MLOps platform. The new release enables data science teams to securely collaborate on AI/ML innovation on any cloud, from concept to production.

    Charmed Kubeflow is free to use: the solution can be deployed in any environment without constraints, paywall or restricted features. Data labs and MLOps teams only need to train their data scientists and engineers once to work consistently and efficiently on any cloud or on-premise. Charmed Kubeflow offers a centralised, browser-based MLOps platform that runs on any conformant Kubernetes – offering enhanced productivity, improved governance and reducing the risks associated with shadow IT.

    The latest release adds several features for advanced model lifecycle management, including upstream Kubeflow 1.4 and support for MLFlow integration.

    Data scientists can get started today with Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 using Juju, the unified operator framework for hyper-automated management of applications running on both virtual machines and Kubernetes. The new release is in the CharmHub stable channel now, and can be deployed to any conformant Kubernetes cluster using a single Juju command.

  • Canonical releases Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 to simplify enterprise AI projects

    Canonical Ltd. on Tuesday released Charmed Kubeflow 1.4, the newest version of its platform for simplifying enterprise artificial intelligence projects.

    U.K.-based Canonical is the maker of Ubuntu, one of the most widely used versions of the Linux operating system. Ubuntu is especially popular in the enterprise, where it’s commonly used to power public cloud environments. The operating system is frequently deployed together with Kubernetes.

    A growing number of enterprises are running AI models in their Kubernetes environments to support machine learning initiatives. In 2018, Google LLC released an open-source tool called Kubeflow to simplify the task of running AI software on Kubernetes. Canonical’s newly updated AI platform, Charmed Kubeflow, is a customized version of Google’s Kubeflow designed to be easier to use.

    Canonical provides the software under an open-source license. In addition to Kubeflow’s core features, Charmed Kubeflow includes automation code that the company says simplifies a number of day-to-day management tasks. The software can be deployed in the public cloud, as well as on-premises.

Linux 5.18-rc7

	
From	Linus Torvalds 
Date	Sun, 15 May 2022 18:15:42 -0700
Subject	Linux 5.18-rc7
share 0
So things continue to be fairly calm, and as such this is likely the
last rc before 5.18 unless something bad happens next week.

All the stats here look normal, with the bulk of it being random
driver updates (network drivers, gpu, usb, etc).

There's a few filesystem fixes, some core networking, and some code
kernel stuff. And some selftest updates.

Sortlog appended, nothing really stands out (the most exciting thing
last week was literally that Andrew has started using git, which will
make my life easier, but that doesn't affect the *code*)

Please give it one last week of testing, so that we'll have a nice
solid 5.18 release.

  1. Finding files in Ubuntu 22.04

    In computing, file placement is an important activity to perform as you may forget the file location. Ubuntu 22.04 supports various built-in commands to trace down your files. However, the graphical user interface may also be used to find files.

  2. How to Convert SVG or PDF File to Base64?

    Apart from simple text, the image files or documents can also be converted to the Base64 format. These entities can then be stored securely anywhere you want. In this article, we would like to share the methods of converting the SVG files and PDF files to Base64 using the Python programming language in Ubuntu 20.04. First, we will introduce you briefly to these file formats, followed by the procedure of converting them to Base64.

  4. GDISK Command-Line Options

    The GDISK command in Linux is used to partition the drives of your system. Moreover, it can also be used to list down the existing partitions and display relevant information about them. In this guide, we will be talking about the different command-line options that are available with the GDISK command on a Linux Mint 20.3 system.

  5. Mapfile Bash Linux Command

    The bash shell Mapfile command is often known as a reading array. The primary purpose is to read standard input lines and store them in an indexed array variable. Mapfile must also read from substitution (<<) rather than a pipe. In addition, as compared to a read loop, bash Mapfile is a much faster and more convenient solution. It returns 1 if the execution of the command gets successful and 0 in case it is not successful. If we don’t specify an array name, the bash Mapfile variable will be targeting the array variable by default. Thus, we have decided to cover some examples using the mapfile instruction on the bash.

  6. Resolve Issue: Bash Bad Substitution

    You may have received the Bad substitution syntax problem while developing Bash scripts. After browsing through forums, you may discover that you are not alone; other individuals are encountering the same mistake. It’s a typographical fault that happens when you run your Shell script, and it can happen for a variety of reasons. The wrong use of instruction substitution and erroneous characters appended to the program are two major reasons for this. Let’s see how we can make our shell script cause this error and how to resolve it. Get started with the new bash file created with Ubuntu’s “touch” query and open it within the “GNU Nano” editor.

  7. Resolve Issue: Bash Unary Operator Expected

    Errors have a diverse number of types and reasons when it comes to bash programming. One of those errors is the “unary operator expected” error in bash programming. When evaluating expressions in conditional declarations, you may run into the “unary operator expected” issue. The reasons for this error “bash unary operator expected” might be diverse. We’ll start by talking about what’s creating the problem. Following that, we’ll go over a couple of options for resolving this problem. Let’s get started with today’s article by creating a new bash file in Ubuntu 20.04 system. For this, we need to utilize the “touch” instruction within the shell terminal and name the file “unary.sh”.
