Sami Lehtinen (sl)'s status on Friday, 22-Jul-2016 11:03:40 UTC Sami Lehtinen User Experience. It took quite a while for me to figure out why WiFi / WLAN wasn't working. Reason? Access Point (AP) was configure to use n standard. But the old device only supported g standard. Guess what, Xubuntu, doesn't indicate any kind of reason for this fail. Just just tries to connect for a long time, and then fails. Yet another example of engineering, how to totally fail and even fail to give any kind of feedback or reasonable error message. After wondering for a while, I enabled gn mixed mode, and tada, everything started to work. Yet, the network list nicely shows the n network and prompts for password, even if the device naturally can't join the network- Thank you once again for great engineering guys. - Phew. #Ubuntu #Linux #WLAN #WiFi #fail

mangeurdenuage (mangeurdenuage)'s status on Saturday, 16-Jul-2016 20:48:48 UTC mangeurdenuage I was wondering if the amazon thing, was still on the #ubuntu distributions
well on #xubuntu there is much communication just at the start of vanilla #xubuntu firefox
18.104.22.168 (amazon) nothing to say
22.214.171.124 (canonical) why
126.96.36.199 (EDGECAST-NETBLK-03) plain http ? who the fuck are you ?
at first I thought that it was the "data choice" (telemetry and other) that can be send but it isn't that.

التنينوكس (dragnucs)'s status on Saturday, 02-Jul-2016 22:04:37 UTC التنينوكس My story so far with self-hosting:
1. Get VPS from #OVH
2. Install Debian 8; Debian doesn't have #PHP7
3. Upgrade to #debian testing; first reboot breaks everything
4. Install #Ubuntu 16.04; When did #NGINX that complicated to set up? Why is it so hard to get ownCloud running?
5. Install #Arch; everything works on first try.

Finally tried OpenStore for #Ubuntu (click based) devices. Thanks [dada](/people/7fcdd8d08c2d0132bba82d9862fed453) for reminding me of this. It contains some apps that run outside the normal security containment, which allows them to do stuff which contained apps can't. Of course, this means you really must trust the application since it could pretty much do anything as it's not contained like apps installed from the official store. This store should really only be enabled if you know what you are doing and there is no warranty whatsoever if you cripple your device or lose your data to someone!
The most useful thing I found currently is the UT Tweak Tool which allows one to tweak some system settings which are not exposed to the normal system settings app. One of these is the "staged vs windowed" mode toggle. Here is a screenshot of my Bq E4.5 phone running in windowed mode. Works really well, windows can be dragged, resized, maximized, etc :) Of course totally no point in using windowed mode on a phone, but just goes to prove the power of convergence that Canonical is building. If my phone could connect to an external display, suddenly windowed mode would become much more useful.
The other nice app is ubtd, which allows sending and receiving files via Bluetooth. No, this is not in the core system yet :P

I got my #MEIZU Pro 5 #Ubuntu Edition, I managed to order it before it was sold out! It's fast (both use, and 4G network connection), it has a great camera, and everything seems to work smoothly with the latest software update that was available.
