List wonders in Ubuntu 11:04 and 10.10 available through the Software CenterFiled under: Events;
I know still do not know if I should be glad angry about the beginning of Appifikation or Ubuntu. On the one hand, it's always good when software is easy to install in an operating system, on the other hand, it is questionable in my eyes, if Ubuntu needs a market for any meaningful free mini-apps.Another consequence of this Appifikation see just the frontend for the open-source cloud-based service ToDo List miracle. It seems the 6Wunderkindern probably too complex to be the application and make a pact to bring them directly into the sources of Debian, but instead goes to the “comfortable” and sent off the application as an app to Canonical. These can therefore install recently directly from the software center of Ubuntu, but it must be purchased at a price of 0 €.
Actually, I should not complain, the client portion of miracle List is under the Apache Public License, the final app will be “sold” for free via the Software Center, and unlike the one on the download page of wonders list available tarball must the application from the Software Center is not installed by hand or registered itself in the menus. I still wonder why miracles do not list all of the sources is normally installed?
Is it easy for developers by surprise too complex to list the sources of an application in Ubuntu? There is no maintainer who wants to maintain a source-free, but clearly commercial application? I personally have nothing against Ubuntu's software center, I find that it was long overdue, that created a frontend for package management, which the user and the admin does not have in mind.
But somehow we must be careful that we do not create two different worlds. It is not impossible for the open source part of a proprietary cloud solution in the sources to get started with Debian. The Dropbox plugin for Nautilus has long been in Debian and soon to be found in the sources of Ubuntu. Something like this could also work wonders in list if you just want.
Well, nothing can nevertheless install it just now miracle list from the software center out. But only under Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 and Natty 11.04, who is already switched to Oneiric, the patient should probably still a bit surprising to list has been entered into the system. Let's say you do not like through the “purchase” confusing, but you need this definitely an Ubuntu account, without that you can in the software center to buy anything.
Have described her as my list of wonders to / opt and install manually set an entry in the application menu, then I would delete this installation manual prior to installation through the Software Center. Your data and settings remain unaffected, since the data lie in the cloud anyway and put the settings in your home directory.
$ Sudo rm-rf / opt / wonderful / list$ Sudo rm / usr / share / applications / wunderlist.desktop.
