Opened relations with preston Linux User Group
Investigating how I can make a portable Ubuntu mirror that I can take to events.
Overall this week I have been really busy doing…
- Advertising / Promotion work for Barcamp Nottingham
- Literally looking into what can be done, whats right and whats wrong.
- Lessons learnt from previous Barcamps
- Drawing up plans for Software Freedom Day on the 18th September
- Working with Manchester Free Software to run an Ubuntu Demo Area at the event.
- Wrote a new CV, just because you never know what might happen.
- Posted some T-Shirts to my hardworking mates
- Fixed Inkscape issue
- When launching inkscape, I would click on a tool, then use it on the page. An error was presented “an internal error occurred, Inkscape will now close”. After some investigation it turns out that there was a DBUS error, more spcifically with DBUS and GTK. So I went to the Synaptic Package Manager and removed appmenu-gtk. Now everything seems ok.
- I also updated the kernel to the latest available for Ubuntu, and reinstalled appmenu-gtk. Everything is now back to normal.
- I wrote some emails to
- Linux Format, to say thank-you for their piece on Barcamp Blackpool.
- Ubuntu UK podcast, they asked their listeners to tell they what they do with their jogglers. I use mine as a video ad for Ubuntu at events.
- Attended Blackpool Linux User Group
- Investigated problems with a members laptop.
- Devised a new structure for weekly meetings, to focus the meetings and get as much as we can from the time that we have.
- See if we can have a few cross LUG meets in the next few weeks.
- Would allow anyone on a LAN to connect up and download the latest updates.
Wow what a busy week, and I’m sure next week will be even busier!
Bye for now.
