Preparing for Xubuntu 18.04

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 06:55:22 +0000

Xubuntu 17.10 was just released, but planning for Xubuntu 18.04 – the next long-term support (LTS) release – began quite some time ago. For our users, LTS releases mostly mean a system that is going to be more stable and supported for longer. For us contributors, this means a bunch of things. As a repercussion […]

Refreshing the Xubuntu logo

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 18:41:40 +0000

Earlier this year I worked a bit with our logo to propose a small change to it – first change to the logo in 5 years. The team approved, but for various reasons the new logo did not make it to 17.10. Now we’re ready to push it out to the world. For the last […]

Code-In winners in San Francisco!

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 11:11:18 +0000

Ubuntu took part in the Google Code-in contest as a mentoring organization last December and January. Google Code-In is a contest for 13–17 year old pre-university students who want to learn more about and get involved with open source. With the help of mentors from all participating organizations, the students completed tasks that had been […]

Setting up new systems

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 10:47:52 +0000

In May, I bought a new laptop. In this article, I go through a few of the most essential tweaks I set up with the new laptop. When possible, I like to customize my system to support my workflow and to make working faster. Once you have customized something and got used to it, there’s […]

A WordPress theme for Ubuntu community teams

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 14:13:36 +0000

Quite some time ago I sat down with Timo Jyrinki, a Canonical employee but more importantly, a Ubuntu community member who is involved with the local community team here in Finland. During the time we spent at the café we talked about a need to refresh the website for the Finnish LoCo team. Relatively shortly […]

Clock applets in the Xfce panel in Xubuntu 15.10

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 18:21:46 +0000

Both Xfce and Xubuntu have had new releases relatively lately. In a way or another, this has resulted in an issue with Xubuntu 15.10 release: the Orage clock doesn’t show a transparent background even if it is set to show one. (Upstream bug in Xfce: 11915.) Don’t be afraid! Instead of using the Orage applet, […]

A series of minor improvements for Ubuntu websites

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:41:47 +0000

In addition to using developer documentation (see A compact style for jQuery API documentation), people who work with communities need to use community and communication related websites. The bigger the community, the more tools it needs. In a large community like Ubuntu, the amount of maintenance is big and the variety of platforms is huge. […]

Simple desktops with Xubuntu

Sun, 25 Jan 2015 23:38:00 +0000

In 2012, I wrote an article about default configuration for an operating system and the challenges involved with it. For a related, but slightly different topic, I thought it would be useful to share some of my experiences in setting up environments for more or less technically limited people. Please note that this is just […]

Find-a-Task, quickly!

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 01:39:40 +0000

The Ubuntu community team has recently set up Find-a-Task, which is a small tool that helps new contributors find a task to start working on. If you click around (long enough), you will also find Xubuntu tasks in there. How nice of us! There’s one problem though… The content is unfortunately maintained in a private […]

High priority projects list for artists

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 22:27:51 +0000

My inspiration for this article was that the Free Software Foundation is reviewing the High Priority Projects list. Briefly put, the goal of the list is to achieve more freedom in computing for everybody, focusing in projects with the broadest possible influence. To learn more about the project and find out how to send your […]
