Zeitgeist: The Road to Maverick Meerkat

,----[ Quote ]
| Just like last year Zeitgeist developers 
| were present at UDSâ
| It was amazing I will write about the UDS 
| exprience in another blogpost.
| I think my favorite moment was Mark 
| announcing Unity and using Zeitgeist for 
| file management on the desktop. Although 
| Mikkel knew about it (he works for 
| Canonical), it took the rest of the team 
| by surprise. It is very nice to feel 
| appreciated. And I think i speak on behalf 
| of the whole team when I say âThank you 
| Ubuntu and Canonical for giving us a 
| chanceâ.

| Eye candy. Compiz, which brings all sorts 
| of cool effects to your screen, is already 
| installed with Ubuntu, but to gain greater 
| control over how it behaves, install the 
| settings manager (compizconfig-settings-
| manager in Synaptic). Also install the 
| Emerald Theme Manager (emerald in 
| Synaptic) so that Compiz can display fancy 
| translucent windows. To activate Emerald 
| after itâs installed, hit F2 and type gksu 
| emeraldâreplace and hit Enter. I also 
| create a new start-up program using the 
| same command to make sure my fancy windows 
| come up every time.


Ubuntu 10.04 installation fun

| Bottom line: There is missing a clear path 
| how to replace older Linux, be it Ubuntu 
| or whatever else. Something fast, clear, 
| nice for lame user without selecting / 
| partition in advanced mode (not that 
| complicated, but still). One question: âDo 
| you really want to replace this BlaBla 
| Linux? All data on that partition will be 
| lost. Your Windows XP will not be 
| affected. Proceed?â That is the thing Iâm 
| missing as an upgrade option.

Nautilus With Zeitgeist Integration Already Functional [How-to]

,----[ Quote ]
| To use it you can either patch Nautilus or
| just have a new bookmark in Nautilus. If you
| are not very confortable with compiling
| software from source, I suggest you skip to
| the "For both with and without the Nautilus
| patch (start from here to install it without
| the Nautilus patch!)" part.


Thoughts about the current Zeitgeist situation (GNOME 3 and beyond)

,----[ Quote ]
| I would love to see Zeitgeist growing to be
| something like Telepathy in terms of providing
| a standard for event logging (even if  its in
| python), and I hope we get there soon. And I
| hope Nokia and Intel could also make use of
| what we have and not reinvent the wheel if
| they like what we doâ.


Some GNOME Activity Journal (GNOME Zeitgeist) Screenshots

,----[ Quote ]
| So after some cleanup we decided to upload
| these pics before new years starts.
| Development is going very fast thanks to
| the Zeitgeist Framework 0.3 series. This
| is not our final design and there are
| ofcourse some usability flaws. We welcome
| critics, praises and suggestions.
