Ubuntu Lucid lynx Gnome layout

Je fais un certain nombre de captures d’écrans et en général j’utilise les béta d’ubuntu pour faire mes compilations et mes captures. Avec la dernière version de lucid les boutons ont été déplacés dans la barre de titre et comme cela ne correspond pas au comportement par défaut de GNOME. J’ai donc fait un  peu de recherches pour revenir à la normale. Les captures de GNOME pour le Français sont normalisées et donc j’utilise le thème clearlooks.

J’ai trouvé plusieurs articles qui détaillent les changements. Celui cité plus bas explique même comment personnaliser la barre.

I do a good number of screen captures and I generally use the Ubuntu beta to compile and make captures. With the latest version of lucid lynx the buttons in the titlebar have moved and this does not correspond to the default GNOME behaviour. I did a bit of digging to get back to the standard behaviour. The screen captures in French GNOME team are standardised so I use the clearlooks theme.

I found a good article detailing the changes. It also explains how to edit the bar to your liking.

Ubuntu Globaljam

The Irish Ubuntu group had organised an event as part of Ubuntu global Jam. I went along bringing my spare system.

The talks were interesting and this as been a good introduction to other aspects of the open source community.

I did a short talk on translation as I am hoping to recruit some people and raise awareness for Irish language translations.  This I am afraid did not go as well as I hoped.

I realised that language (outside of programming) was not that much of a focus within the group.

Most people attending were technically minded and apart from the Ubuntu team; who already take part in some translation the rest were doubting their language skills.

To confuse me further the diagram of the translation cycle did not appear on the laptop I borrowed for the presentation, stopping me in my tracks.

I managed to get some interest from a few attendants and talked to the UCD open source labs about getting in touch with the linguistic people there.

I will once again act as a recruiting sergeant in OSS barcamp.

In the meantime some photos of Global jam

Golden oldies and young guns

Vendredi soir j’ai ressorti mes affaires de rugby pour un match et une soirée à Clontarf où nous accueillons Les Arlequins d’Aucamville.
Pas de chance seule la moitié des lumières est en état les photos prises par mes collègues ne sont pas fantastiques si ce n’est pour l’impression de mouvement qu’elle dégagent.
Aussi ce dimanche après midi les jeunes de Clontarf essayaient  de se qualifier pour la suite de leur championnat (échouant de peu malgré leur victoire).

On Friday night got my rugby kit out for a game and a night out in Clontarf were we entertained The Arlequins d’Aucampville.
Unfortunately only half our lights are in working order and so the pictures taken by my team mates on the sideline are not great if you except the impression of speed they exude.
There was another game this afternoon at the club were the under twenties attempted to keep their championship alive against trinity (failing to do so by a tiny margin).
