ubuntu-phone: Landing team 11.06.15

Filed under
Ubuntu

Hello everyone,

Busy day today. The final OTA-4 candidate is almost ready. We built 2
snapshot-images today - first one didn't include one fix due to a
missing package copy, second one with everything ready is now being
tested by QA. All in all, once OTA tests are finished, we'll hand it
over to BQ and release. Hopefully the final OTA-4 release should happen
on Monday. But thanks to all of that we included another MMS related fix
to the whole batch.

Cheers!

This low-end hardware ensured one thing--the major markets would completely ignore the platforms.

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
