Files in /dev

Hello all

I have a simple question - why are there more files in the /dev 
directory then actual existing devices on a particular machine ?
In particular, on start up, why does not the system interrogate the 
hardware and only create files corresponding to the actual hardware 
present ? - in order to avoid confusion.

Thanks for answers

Hi Michael,

You should find all the info, including how to contribute, on:

https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-l10n-en-au

But in a nutshell, that page points to a link with the word substitutions from en_US to en_AU:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AustralianTeam/Projects/Translation/WordSubstitution

Cheers,
David.

Good evening all,

Apologies for the noise but I know there are still a few translators around. If anyone wants to work on the strings that will be available on retail phones later this year see the email below from David. As mentioned there aren't many left so if a few people got in and did some it would be done quickly.

Hi Jackson, Jared,

I sent the e-mail below a few days ago to Joel, but I've not heard from him since, so he might be busy with other stuff. I see you are active en_AU translators, so I thought I'd contact you directly if that's ok.

Do you think you could perhaps look into it? It'd be great to have good translations for Ubuntu phones for Austraila.

Thanks!

Cheers,
David.

Hi Joel,

How are you? I don't work much with translators ever since my role in the Ubuntu Community Team changed from Translations Coordinator to be more focused on app development, but it's nice that every now and then I can go back to translations briefly and get in touch with translators again :)

I'm writing with a heads up about an e-mail I sent to the translators list [1] about phone translations being due in August. The retail Ubuntu phones will be available very soon and it'd be great to have English (Australia) available.

I know the time is tight, but there are not many messages to complete, and having them ready could have a great impact in Ubuntu adoption in Australia. Do you think it might be possible to complete the following translations by August?

Thanks!

Cheers,
David.

Software Updater

I am using 14.04 LTS. The Software Updater is failing, reporting an 
error after 55% installatlion.
I can neither install updates nor install programs.
I thought of removing the application and re-installing it but Ubuntu's 
Software Centre warns against removal as one would expect.
Before taking his action I would appreciate any advice on how to correct 
this fault.

Membership Board Nominations

The Ubuntu Membership Board is currently calling for nominees to replace 
expiring board members.

While there has been some response so far - most of those of have been 
for the 22:00 Board - there appears to be a need for more help for the 
12:00 Board.

During the recent meeting between the Community Council and the 
Membership Board, we were asked to help with the call for nominees.

This is a very important Board in our community structure - without the 
work of the Membership Boards we would be without Ubuntu Members, I 
would hope that no-one would want that - we certainly don't.

So - we're reaching out to those of you in LoCo's that are perhaps more 
conducive to a 12:00UTC meeting time.

If you are an Ubuntu Member, try to remember how your membership meeting 
went and how you felt, if you would like the opportunity to give the 
same to future applicants then I would ask you to consider nominating 
yourself.

The original call for nominations is on The Fridge [1]
More information on Ubuntu Membership is on the wiki [2]

Nominations to the Membership Board can be made to 
ubuntu-membership-boards at lists.ubuntu.com

Thanks for reading,

Elfy

Re: 12.04 applications launching problem

Thanks Timothy, I have taken your advice but for some unclear reason have moved from the frying pan into the fire.
Ths download of 14.04 went perfectly and was completed in about 30 minutes. Upgrading followed and I stopped watching. 20 minutes later I came back to find that the PC had shutdown. Restarting at first produced a blank desktop. Restarting eventually the desktop was populated with all the folders present on 12.04 but totally without the launching icons and the applets for internet connection, time and date, etc. This means that I can't connect and open files not available through the folders on he desktop. I can discern that the operating system is installed as everything opened through he files in desktop folders works.
Perhaps the PC shutdown too early, but I can't be sure. I t seems that I must now install via a disk which I will get from Peter Baker. It's a shame because the upgrade went somwell in the beginning.

Re: Ubuntu 12.04 application launching problem

The launching problem experienced was induced, I am fairly sure, by a PC 
hardware defect and the software issue solved by installing 14.04LTS. 
But not before the hardware caused numerous shutdowns. Initially I 
installed 14.04 on-line. The download went effortlessly but the 
subsequent upgrade was terminated prematurely by a PC shutdown, the 
first  of many. This left the system installed without any launching 
panel icons or applets at the top. The OS worked but could only be used 
from the folders on the desktop, a strange situation. I replaced the RAM 
(carefully) and this action seems to have stopped the unscheduled 
hardware shutdowns. That fixed I bought a 14.04LTS 32 bit disk from 
Peter Baker who responded immediately (thanks Peter) and installation 
occurred without a hitch.
Incidentally I find 14.04 very good with a few noticeable and useful 
improvements. It is by far the best at connecting with my Internet 
provider (Telstra) via the little 4G mobile modem. I couple the modem to 
a home-made double-quad antenna tuned and adjusted for 3G's 850 MHz. It 
boosts the RF signal by about 5dB and ensures fast transfer of data.
I installed 14.04 by choosing the 'erase disk' option which meant that I 
had to re-install quite a few applications (such as Scribus and Bluefish 
which I use a lot). But this is good as I got updates. I also took the 
opportunity to switch Mailing from Evolution to Thunderbird.
Meanwhile I continue to urge others to try Ubuntu, not with much 
responding interest I have to say.

Re: Ubuntu 12.04 applications launching problem

I upgraded directly from 12.04 to 14.04 and it when very smoothly. I was
surprised to see that even my wallpaper remained the same after the
upgrade.

See for the steps to kick of the upgrade:

Let us know how it goes.
