FSCONS 2011 and GNU get-together

I’ll be attending FSCONS 2011 in Göteborg (Sweden) next week (11/11/11), which also holds a GNU get-together, with lots of usual suspects.

Carlos Garnacho, another Lanedian, will be giving a talk about Theming GTK+ applications with CSS, which you shouldn’t miss.

So, if you are interested in developing custom GTK+, LibreOffice, NetworkManager, ModemManager or Tracker features; or any other services provided by Lanedo GmbH, just email me and we’ll be able to talk in Göteborg.

See you there!

Ubuntu packaging updates: dbus 1.3.1, sqlite 3.7.1 and gnu psychosynth 0.1.5

SQLite and DBus

I’ve been lately packaging the latest releases of several programs for Ubuntu Lucid (or Trisquel Taranis), mainly due to our bleeding-edge requirements in Tracker. You can find them in my personal PPAs in Launchpad:

The real packaging work was done by the Debian guys, of course (kudos to them!); I just prepared the necessary bits to make them get compiled as Ubuntu packages.

GNU Psychosynth

In addition to this, during the last GNU Hackers Meeting in The Hague, I also changed the Ubuntu packaging of GNU Psychosynth, the most entertaining music synthesizer I’ve ever played with. The latest packages are now available in the GNU Psychosynth Team’s PPA, and right now only Ubuntu versions >= Lucid will be supported (as they no longer require Andrew Fenn’s Ogre Development PPA).

Oh, and Juan Pedro was able to do another demonstration of GNU Psychosynth during the meeting, which got recorded, so that you can understand what this great program does… watch it and enjoy!

Lanedo, Tracker, Devhelp, GHM, GUADEC…

So, starting on April 1st (not a fools’ day joke!), I’m now employed by Lanedo GmbH, and full-time working on the Gnome Tracker project, mainly involved in FTS and the filesystem miner.

It was great to work with everyone in Azetti Networks. Keep Jardin and Waterfall alive!

I also hacked a new feature for Gnome Devhelp, the possibility of enabling or disabling specific books, which was integrated into git master last week, and will make it for the 3.0 release.

Oh, and I’ll be attending both the GHM and GUADEC in The Hague!
