Ubuntu® for Android™ will get unveiled at MWC

One of the predominant editions of Linux operating system – Ubuntu will be ported on Android devices and it will make its first appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.

Canonical, an independent firm which is continuously working to make Linux operating system shine amongst other platforms, has announced to release the Ubuntu edition of Linux software for Android devices.

The Ubuntu for Android software is purely based on an open-source code that will be integrated on forthcoming Android devices. And both Android and Ubuntu will work on the same kernel architecture. The mobile OS will allow you to use your Android smartphone like a mobile handset and a fully functional desktop PC at the same time.

The moment you would attach your phone to an external monitor, the Ubuntu for Android will get enabled to give you a facility of using a desktop OS. This way, you can manage all of your mobile contacts and other important data directly from your Android phone.

If you want to know more about Ubuntu for Android then wait for some more time because it will make its debut at the Mobile World Congress 2012.

2D Support Added to Ubuntu Unity

Canonical continues its hard work to complete the new interface Unity, which will replace the traditional GNOME desktop in its next release of Ubuntu, the 11.04. One of the most popular questions in this regard concerns the hardware configuration and software for its proper functioning, since Unity expressly requires OpenGL graphics acceleration.

The most fascinating of the new version of Debian-based operating system is that they use the interface instead of Gnome Light Unity Shell. In that regard, the developers have recently made it known that for the new release it will develop a more lightweight version called Unity 2D, just as the name implies it will function without any problems even on those computers where the hardware resources are not nearly as plentiful.

The new interface uses Qt 4.7/QML and the same components that characterize the version that requires OpenGL graphics acceleration: indicators, BAMF, goddesses, and uTouch places.

It is proposed as an alternative to the Unity 3D by providing almost all the functionality offered by “big brother”. Later it will be seen if Canonical will provide a special version of Ubuntu with Unity 2D or give you the chance in case of lack of system requirements to install Unity 2D later.

It already has a PPA for those wishing to try this “new” version on your Ubuntu 10.10, which appears to have already affected many users for its speed and responsiveness.

Canonical engineering manager Bill Filler in a blog post wrote, that Unity 2D’s main goal is to provide a Unity environment on hardware platforms that don’t support Unity’s OpenGL requirements.  Many ARM platforms fall into this category, so Unity 2D will expand Unity’s reach to a considerable class of new hardware.

He also told that company have  made a significant effort to try and match the visual style of Unity quite closely, so Unity 2D will have the same look and feel as Unity,” Filler added. “It’s installed as its own session so it can live side by side with Unity, Gnome, your favorite session, etc.”

If you are interested to read an indepth review about “Ubuntu Unity Adds 2D Support” . You can catch the ZDNet UK / Blogs / Jamie’s Mostly Linux Stuff blog in which the blogger told his experience. He downloaded the latest Ubuntu Natty daily build, and booted the Live image on his netbook.

While searching on this topic the PC world .com “News of ‘Natty Narwhal’ Previews What’s Next For Ubuntu” is also a worth read. The blog has also informed that next alpha version of Natty  will not be issued until the middle of March this information is based on  is expected to release in April or after that . The Future Ubuntu versions does not get and official name right now.

How to install WinPopup (LinPopUp) in Ubuntu

Operating system is the backbone for any computer; nothing can work on your compute without and operating system installed in it. Operating system helps the communication between hardware and software. There are so many operating systems available in the market for home users and business users and Microsoft is leading the market in the home segment but there is one more new Operating System, Ubuntu, which has created a lot of buzz in recent time.

Ubuntu is free and open source operating system development which is based on Linux. The primary designed of Ubuntu is for personal computers like desktops, laptops, and netbooks but it also comes in a server edition.

The project it financially supported by Canonical Ltd which is owned by a South African businessman Mark Shuttleworth, that also may be the reason why this venture got the name as Ubuntu is an African word which means Humanity for others. As it is freeware, user need to install some basic services manually for the operating system like WinPopup (LinPopup). WinPopup is basically a Windows based utility which was present till Windows ME operating system but it was never used in any of the Windows NT based operating systems. The service or utility was used to send messages from one Windows based machine to another Windows based machine using a LAN. LinPopup is the replica of the same service which does the same work in Ubuntu based computers but your need to manually install and configure this service. As we know that Ubuntu is an open source application, so there are so many community services which develop tools and scripts to add various utilities for Ubuntu. You must have a .desktop file on your system to install LinPopup. You can create one if it is not present.

Here are some of the basic steps to install WinPopup (LinPopup) in Ubuntu:

Step1:

Create a .desktop file

This file is generally present in the Desktop folder you can try to locate the file in Home folder then entering the User folder and then exploring the Desktop folder. This is a very plain text file which entries and specification and if the file does not exist in your system then you can simply create one desktop file with the appropriate information in it.

Step2:

Now type the below mentioned commands exactly as it is represented

1.   sudo apt-get install linpopup

2.   sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/linpopup.desktop

This will create a new file for Linpopup file which will be used to install the utility.

Step3:

Now you would need to the following texts in the new files:

[Desktop Entry]

Name=LinPopUp

Comment=LinPopUp

Exec=linpopup

Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/linpopup.xpm

Terminal=false

Type=Application

Categories=Application;Utility;

Step4:

Once the above mentioned data is entered in the file, you need to save the file and exit from the console.

This will create the utility in your Ubuntu computer.

Step5:

After the steps are done, the WinPopup (Linpopup) utility is installed on your computer which can be accessed under Application/Accessories/Linpopup.

How to Format a Hard Drive in Linux

Formatting a hard disk is necessary if you are attaching a new hard disk on your computer. Disk formatting creates the files system in the hard disk so that the common files types can be recognized and Operating system can be installed. You can also format a hard disk if you completely want to remove data from any old hard disk. In Linux operating system, hard drives are represented as “hdx” and “sdx”. The ‘x’ here denotes the sequence of the hard drivers attached in your computer. The ‘hd’ in the abbreviation is used for IDE or ATA type hard disks and ‘sd’ is to represent SATA or SCSI hard drivers. In some cases you can also find number at the end of these representation which can be used to refer to different partition on the hard disk.

As discussed earlier, disk formatting can be done on old hard drives as well.

If you are formatting an old hard disk, you must take the backup of the data as the formatting will remove everything from the hard disk.

Here are some steps to format a hard disk in Linux operating system.

Metod 1:  By using FDISK command:

Step1

First of all you would need to run fdisk command to remove any of the previous partition from an old hard drive and create new partition. The “w” command in the console will make all the changes permanent, so make sure that you use this command before quitting the command console.

You can also use “Ctrl” + “c” command simultaneously to leave the console unchanged.

Step2

Now us the “fdisk /dev/hdb” command to replace the “hbd” with the letters for your drive.  Now use “p” command to enlist all the partition on the hard drive and it will also show the size of particular hard disk.

Step3

One you have the list of existing partions you can manage them accordingly. Use “d” command and pres “Enter” to delete any existing partion. This step will prompt you to delete selected partition. You can select the desired number of partition which you want to delete and you can also repeate the same step in case of multiple partitions.

Step4

Now you are ready to create new partition as all the existing partitions are deleted. Type ‘n’ and hit ‘enter’ to create new partition and then use ‘p’ command to create the primary partition. It will prompt to number you partition; select 1 as the partition number. Now it will ask for the first and last cylinder of the hard disk which is default, so just hit “enter” twice.

Step5

Now you can use “p” command in the in the command prompt to check the partition table and you must also see the newly created partition here.

Step6

At this point, you would need to create the file system for the newly created partition. You need to enter the Hex code value of the file system. Use the Hex code ‘83’ for the standard Linux ext2 file system.

Create a new file system:

Now you need to use “mkfs” command to create a new file system. Type the command “mkfs -t ext2 /dev/hdb1” at the command prompt.

If you have any other file system except “ext2” then you must specify the “ext2” in the above command.

Finalize formatting

Now the last step is to perform a check on the hard drive and enter it on fstab so that the drive is mounted at every restart of computer.

Type the command “fsck -f -y /dev/hdb1” at the command prompt. Your drive is now ready and formatted after the fsck run.

How to Download Ubuntu Linux For Free

Operating system is a very important part in any computer as it allows the communication between software and hardware. Ideally, the computer will be of no use without any operating system installed in it. Early computer used to have functionality to perform single task at a time, but with due course of time computing and calculation became critical and everyone felt the need of high end operating system.
