Behind the GNOME 3.30 Release Video

Filed under
GNOME

With each video I experiment with new workflows. Traditionally I have been involved in every step of the production apart from the voice-over with very few opportunities for others to step in and contribute. With Gitlab’s powerful issue tracking system, this no longer needs to be the case. This has meant that I can spend more time on production in Blender and spread out the other aspects of production to the GNOME community.

GNOME Podcasts – podcast client for the GNOME desktop

Filed under
GNOME

Podcasts are shows, similar to radio or TV shows, that are produced by professionals or amateurs and made available on the internet to stream and/or download. They are a popular source of entertainment. There’s lots of great podcasts that are Linux-centric, which I surveyed in this review.

It’s true that any music player worth its salt plays podcasts. But there’s still a call for dedicated players. I’ve looked at podcasts built with web technologies as well as an interesting command-line podcast player. To add to the mix, let’s consider a further podcast player designed with the GNOME desktop in mind.

The application is called GNOME Podcasts, a native GTK app. Its design is inspired by GNOME Music and Vocal. You don’t need a PhD to realize GNOME Podcasts is a podcast client. It used to be called Hammond, after Allan Moore’s character Evey Hammond from the graphic novel V for Vendetta.

GNOME: Nautilus Terminal 3, GNOME.Asia Summit 2018 and Gtranslator Resurrection

GNOME
  • Get A Terminal Embedded In Nautilus File Manager With Nautilus Terminal 3

    Nautilus Terminal 3 embeds a terminal into Nautilus (Files, the default Gnome browser), similar to KDE's Dolphin file manager. The terminal automatically changes directories based on the user's navigation in the file browser.

    This Nautilus extension is a re-implementation of the old Nautilus Terminal that was initially only available for Nautilus 2.x, and later 3.0 and 3.2, which should work with recent Nautilus versions.

  • GNOME.Asia Summit 2018

    Last year I’d been COSCUP 2017 at first time, it gave a great impression of COSCUP. It’s open, freedom and very energetic. It’s very nice this year GNOME.Asia Summit joint with COSCUP and openSUSE.Asia.

    [...]

    And at night we had a GNOME.Asia BoF to review the Good vs. Bad, we collected a lot of ideas to make the GNOME.Asia better in future.

    In the second day, I made a topic about “flatpak vs. snap”, introduced some concepts and basic usages. And I also listened Max’s “Community experience”, Kukuh’s “GNOME Recipes”, Shobha’s “Humanitarian FOSS projects” and Wen’s “GNOME.Asia experience”.

  • Gtranslator Resurrection

    The last week I received a telegram message about Gtranslator, that was unmaintained for a long time. GNOME translators uses different tools to translate .po files, Gtranslator is a tool for translator that is integrated with the GNOME desktop, but with the time, Gtranslator is getting old and there are several known bugs that never get fixed.

    So I decided to go ahead and become the maintainer of Gtranslator with the main idea of update the interface and fix mayor bugs.
