A More "Classic GNOME" Session Lands In Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin

Quote
The Indicator Applet port to GTK3 has finally landed in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin. This, along with some changes to the GNOME Panel default settings, finally "fix" the Classic (fallback) GNOME session in Ubuntu 12.04.

They are listening to the end-users and at least making an effort to fix the Gnome 3 problems.

Quote
Among other noticeable features, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS now has an Unity Video Lens, allowing users to easily track their video files stored locally, or search for videos online, via popular websites like YouTube or Vimeo.

The Video Lens is displayed in the Unity Dash next to the Music Lens (click the image above to enlarge). By default it shows recently watched videos and files stored on the "Video" folder located in your home directory.

The new Lens allows to search for video files on sites like Amazon, BBC iPlayer, YouTube Movies, YouTube Education, YouTube Shows, Vimeo, VODO, Sci-Fi London, ABC iView, TED Talks, and Encuentro.

Ubuntu Linux 12.04 One-Ups Windows and Mac, Shuttleworth Says

Quote
Now, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS represents the first time ďreal desktop user experience innovation is available on a full production-ready enterprise-certified free software platform, free of charge, well before it shows up in Windows or MacOS,Ē Shuttleworth asserted.

HUD, in particular, is Canonical's first step toward ďa totally new kind of UI for complex apps,Ē he explained, noting that the new interface is completely optional. ďWeíre deconstructing the traditional UI... Itís going to be a rich vein of innovation and exploration, and the main beneficiaries will be those who use computers to create amazing things, whether itís the kernel, or movies.Ē

Also reflected in version 12.04 is additional testing with advanced users, Shuttleworth noted, including those with multiple monitors.

In short, Ubuntu 12.04 is a milestone that embodies significant change, he added, and has required that its developers shift from being followers to leading the design of the platform.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ISO Will Still Fit on a CD

Quote
According to a comment from Canonical's Stťphane Graber on a recent bug submitted to Launchpad, the size of the ISO images for the upcoming Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) will remain the same as in previous releases, fitting on a CD.

I wasn't too worried about it.

Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin Beta Review

Quote
The next version of Ubuntu Ė 12.04, Precise Pangolin is now available in beta and this is particularly important since it is the next Long Term Support (LTS) version. As of all LTS version, the emphasis is always on stability over new features experimentation, so it is interesting to see how the 12.04 will perform.

Medibuntu repositories available for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin | PPA

Quote
Medibuntu is a packaging project dedicated to distributing software that cannot be included in Ubuntu for various reasons, related to geographical  variations in legislation regarding intellectual property, security and other issues, some examples of packages included in Medibuntu we find libdvdcss package from VideoLAN, FFMpeg codecs not supported in multiverse, and the external binary codecs package (commonly known as w32codecs) used by MPlayer and xine.

Medibuntu repositories are available for Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu and LinuxMint for both 32 and 64 bit.

Say hello to Canonical's new Linux desktop: Ubuntu 12.04 beta review

Quote
Canonicalís next long-term support release of its flagship Linux distribution, Ubuntu 12.04 is in late beta. This next release, due out on April 26th, is in beta now. Iíve been using it for several weeks now and so far, so good.

Indeed, the new Ubuntu is good enough already that Iíve it on my default Ubuntu system: a 2009-era Gateway DX4710. This PC is powered by a 2.5-GHz Intel Core 2 Quad processor and has 6GBs of RAM and an Intel GMA (Graphics Media Accelerator) 3100 for graphics. No, itís not fast, but unlike Windows 8ís beta, you donít need a fast computer for Ubuntu.

I think most users should still wait for the final release, but I also think they wonít be disappointed with Ubuntu 12.04 when it does arrive.

No, itís not the old GNOME 2.x style desktop. If you want that I think youíre better off with Mint 12 with its optional Cinnamon interface. But, if you want an easy-to-use Linux desktop that works well with business networks, I think youíll like Ubuntu 12.04 a lot. I know I do.

Should you be worried about Ubuntu Desktopís privacy settings?

Quote
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Long Term Support), aka Precise Pangolin, will be released towards the end of this month. Like most distribution releases, it will come with its share of new features, enhancements and bugfixes.

You will find one of those new features in System Settings, the hub for most graphical administrative tools in Ubuntu and GNOME 3 desktops in general. The tool or application is called Privacy. What it does is not new per se, but new in the manner it executes them.

5 problems with Ubuntu 12.04 part 2: Calendaring & forward planning

Quote
Ubuntu 12.04 has a number of challenges to overcome before we think itís ready for the planned LTS release later this month. We continue our irreverent list with a few issues with calendaring in Ubuntu 12.04Ö

 Undecided  These so-called problems could be easily solved by install additional software from the repository.  Or by waiting for a remastered distro based on Ubuntu 12.04 that includes additional software pre-loaded.

Much ado about nothing.

How Canonical's next moves could repaint the Linux landscape

Quote
Iíll preface this by saying that I realize Iíve been writing about Ubuntu/Canonical quite a lot lately. There is a good reason for this ó Ubuntu 12.04 should bring about some major changes to both the Linux desktop landscape as well as the way people looking outside-in view Linux. How is that you ask? Outside of the bits and pieces Iíve already mentioned (HUD and various improvements to Unity), Canonical is planning on three major additions to the Linux-verse that could easily be a complete reversal of fortune (to the tune of the late Steve Jobs miraculously re-joining Apple).

Those three additions are:

    * Ubuntu on Android
    * Ubuntu TV
    * Ubuntu on tablets

20-million new Ubuntu Linux PCs in 2012?

Quote
In less than two weeks, the latest version of Canonicalís Ubuntu Linux distribution, Ubuntu 12.04, Precise Pangolin, will be released. This new Ubuntu is looking good. How good? In a recent interview with Julie Bort, Canonical and Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth said, ďWe expect to ship close to 20 million PCs in the next year.Ē

He wasnít talking about 20-million new copies of Ubuntu being installed. Thatís easy to believe. True, desktop Linux has only a fraction of the total desktop market, but there are certainly tens of millions of Linux users. Mind you, there are hundreds of millions of Mac OS X users and over a billion Windows users.

Between MS releasing Win 8 and Mac's getting infected with malware, Linux is primed for an upsurge in new users.  But I think Mint more than Ubuntu will be leading that charge.

'Flashback' Mac Malware: One More Reason to Switch to Linux

Quote
Stocking up on security software is one approach to the problem, but a better one, I'd suggest, would be to consider switching to Linux instead.

Safe, secure and free:  the perfect trifecta.
