It's no secret that copyright holders are trying to take down as much pirated content as they can, but targeting open source software is not something we see every day. Paramount Pictures recently sent a DMCA takedown to Google, listing a copy of the popular operating system Ubuntu. An honest mistake, perhaps, but a worrying one.
Softpedia was informed by Marius Quabeck from UbuntuFun.de that the registration for the upcoming UbuCon Europe conference for Ubuntu Linux users and developers is now open.
We informed our readers about UbuCon Europe, which is the very first European Ubuntu conference put together by a group of Ubuntu members, earlier this year, and told them that it would take place between November 18-20, at the Unperfekthaus in Essen, Germany.
In 2014 Bloomberg hosted its first "Open Source Day" event, which was an experiment to see if we could combine the company's long history of volunteerism with open source collaboration. We brought one of the Git project's core developers to New York City, got about 30 employees signed up, and they spent the day learning how to build, test, and improve Git. The event was such a success that we've held a half-dozen more, and they've grown into weekend events with attendees from our Engineering team, local universities and colleges, and of course the open source community.
Drone and quadcopter manufacture Parrot has teamed up with Ubuntu producers Canonical to create a drone attachment called S.L.A.M. Dunk which focuses on creating autonomous machines that can avoid obstacles.
Monitoring battery life of your Ubuntu laptop just got a touch easier. The Atareao team has added a new battery usage and information section to its fork of the CPU-G hardware information tool (think CPU-Z on Windows). You’re probably familiar with seeing a timeline power usage graph on your mobile device, be it Android, Ubuntu or iOS.
As you’re no doubt aware, a new desktop background accompanies each new stable release of Ubuntu.
Leostream Joins Canonical's Partner Program to Accelerate Ubuntu OpenStack Virtual Desktop DeploymentsSubmitted by Rianne Schestowitz on Thursday 8th of September 2016 09:54:55 PM Filed under
Leostream Corporation, a leading developer of hosted desktop connection management software, and Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, the leading OS for container, cloud, scale-out and hyperscale computing, today announced that Leostream has joined the Charm Partner Programme to facilitate the deployment of virtual desktops on Ubuntu OpenStack. The partner program helps solution providers make best use of Canonical's model driven operations system, Juju; enabling instant workload deployment, integration, and scaling on any public or private cloud, as well as bare metal with just a click of a button. The Juju Charm Store has a rapidly growing number of charms available to DevOps teams, with hundreds of cloud-based applications available.
In the hope that this joke never sees the light of day again, Linux distro maker Canonical and drone maker Parrot have joined forces to create S.L.A.M.dunk, a development kit to help design autonomous vehicles that avoid obstacles even in the most innest of indoors.
The system uses a combination of Ubuntu and ROS (Robot Operating System) to provide an environment for prototyping self-driving, 3D mapping or data gathering. Attaching it to a drone turns it into an "intelligent robot", according to Ubuntu.
Softpedia was informed today, September 8, 2016, by Željko Popivoda from the Linux AIO team about the availability of an updated Linux AIO Ubuntu Live ISO image, based on Canonical's recently released Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) OS.
Yes, you're reading it right, Linux AIO Ubuntu 16.04.1 Live ISO images are now available for download in 64-bit and 32-bit variants, based on the Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Live ISO images, which were officially released on July 21, 2016, and they include all the essential Ubuntu Linux flavors.
Ubuntu Phone finally has a photo editing app. Although early alpha quality, Instant FX for Ubuntu is already looking like an impressive app. And with so few native Ubuntu apps around, each one is truly appreciated. Now, obvious things first: InstantFX is very obviously styled around the Instagram Android & iOS app’s editing interface.
