El sdk de Ubuntu Mobile: cómo crear una aplicación Hace unas semanas os hablábamos del gran interés que Canonical, la empresa de Ubuntu, está demostrando por los nuevos dispositivos como los smartphones y las tablets. A finales de este año se ha planteado la posibilidad de que salga al mercado dispositivos con versiones de Ubuntu adaptadas a móviles y tablets. Mientras tanto, Canonical ha puesto a disposición nuestra una serie de paquetes para que vayamos trasteando con el nuevo sistema operativo a modo de pruebas así como ha sacado un SDK para desarrollar aplicaciones o programas para este sistema operativo. ¿ Qué es un SDK y como desarrollo aplicaciones? Un SDK es un gran paquete que contiene normas, programas, archivos, librerías, etc… todo necesario para poder crear un programa y que este a partir de su construcción con el sdk pueda funcionar en los sistemas de Ubuntu. Canonical no es el primero en usar un SDK, otros, como Google o Java, tienen sus propios SDK que nos ayudan a desarrollar aplicaciones en Java y Android.

Iloveubuntu: Ubuntu blog Cycles ago, the developers moved the app menus from within the app windows to the Unity panel, feature labeled as appmenu or global menu. Yet, since the appmenu implementation, various users have expressed demands for a within-windows menu, in order to easily access the menu. If you have been using the appmenu and you are still uncomfortable with it, then you are to welcome the newly-arrived in-window titlebars, new menus landed in Ubuntu 14.04 via the regular updates.

Laptop Mode Tools is a package that allows you to extend the battery life of your laptop by enabling the Laptop Mode Linux kernel feature along with other power-related tweaks. This was a command line only tool until version 1.64, which introduces a GUI that lets you toggle individual power saving modules. The new GUI configuration tool isn't exactly pretty as you can see in the screenshot below, but it's definitely an useful addition because it no longer requires users to work with various configuration files.

Unity (Ubuntu 11.04)

Ubuntu 11.04: How To Enable the Unity Desktop Interface : Product Reviews Net By Jamie Pert Posted 9 May 2011, 19:15 Lots of people are still unsure as to whether the Unity user interface which was rolled out with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal is an improvement when compared to Gnome, one thing which we recently realised upon installation of the latest Ubuntu release is the fact that for lots of people it is not available upon installation. Because the Unity UI is more demanding on your computer hardware you may need to install additional drivers to allow it to work, this is a very simple process thanks to Ubuntu’s built in “Additional Drivers” menu option. All we had to do was go to System, Administration and then select “Additional Drivers”, here we found that Ubuntu had found some propriety Nvidia drivers which we could install, they had not been enabled as standard as they were not open-source. Hopefully you will see a driver which is recommended by Ubuntu, simply click on it and then click Activate, the driver will now download and install itself.
