Call for help - Ubuntu IRC

Hi,

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-irc/2014-November/001768.html

I have been waiting for 3-4 days just to get my Ubuntu Clock. I did 
login (I'm now) to the #ubuntu-irc channel at different timing trying to 
find someone who could give me the clock but no progress yet.

I had a chat with some people on the channel who pointed out this link:
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-irc/2014-November/001768.html

So, is there anyone here in our time zone who could possibly help?!

Thanks!

Photo application for Ubuntu

Unless I have missed something in 14.04 LTS I can't find a Linux 
application that will reduce camera photo image size in  bulk (or 
automatically) rather than individually. I wish a size of 100 to 150kb 
for several uses (not only emails). At present I use GIMP one by one 
which is a slow process when dealing with a large number of photographs. 
Any suggestions please.

Package libhid-dev

I wish to have a tool for communicating with Microchips USB 
HID-Bootloader for the purpose of installing new firmware. One such tool 
is 'mphidflash' which supports Linux as well as Mac OSs and MS Windows.
For Linux I am advised that I need the 'libhid-dev' package. It is not 
in 14.04 LTS that I am using, although a search on the Internet states 
that it was in Lucid 10.04. There are other such tools, one of which I 
have for Windows. However I would like one for Linux. Does 14.10 have 
something else that will do the job?
Any advice would be appreciated.

A Future Challenge To Poke

Hi everyone,

First of all, I'd like to share this with you:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2253629

Second of all, in short, one of the challenges I have in mind is to 
spread the word of Ubuntu, GNU/Linux and FLOSS in general in Australia. 
The mission is NOT easy but at the same time, not impossible :) 
together, we could do it and go the extra miles. YES, I know, our worse 
enemy is time and that is the real challenge :)

Thank you and still looking for meeting more people here :)

Hi everyone,

I thought I would forward the following message about Linux.Conf.Au, which is being held in Auckland next January. They have recently announced their funding programme, which I thought some people on this list might be interested in. 

Kind Regards,

thanks for your suggestions for adding start ubuntu and ubuntu gnome to our local mailout service ubuntu.net.au

I visited the start ubuntu wiki page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StartUbuntu and I still have no idea what it is.  something about pushing users to replace xp with ubuntu somehow

not sure about ubuntu gnome.  we already have so many options on ubuntu.net.au if anyone was to ask for it I would download it for them

Re: ubuntu 14.10 now available via ubuntu.net.au

Thanks for that Peter, always helpful.

I just updated to 14.10 yesterday without a hitch, no big changes just a lot of little ones it seems. Handy to hear about Mac specific ones as well as I've just had to buy a Mac for study as I'm changing workplaces and don't get my own laptop any more. I'll have to have a look into that, I have the partitions all set up ready to dual boot just haven't gotten around to installing Ubuntu yet.

I have started offering ubuntu/kubuntu and xubuntu 14.10 via ubuntu.net.au alongside the slightly older long term support 14.04 LTS.  I notice there is a mac specific version of 14.04 that I will start offering soon too

still only $3 for the dvd in a quality plastic case including postage anywhere in oz

happy ordering!

I'd like to join :)

Hello everyone,

I guess Jared Norris may recognize my name. For those who don't know me 
yet, this is my Wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/amjjawad

For the last 4 years, I have been one of the most super active 
contributors to Ubuntu Communities and during that time, I have started 
my own projects such us:

StartUbuntu
and
ToriOS
and more ..

Also, I had some real life activities like: converting 61 machines to 
GNU/Linux:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StartUbuntu/Activities/ConvertCompetition

Have not updated my record yet from 60 to 61 :)

Now, my entire real life has changed. I am in Sydney (Australia) now. 
I'd like to join you and put all my experience, knowledge, activities, 
projects, etc at your service and the entire country.

For the last 4 years, most of my activities were online. Now, I am very 
much interested to go for another challenge and move these activities to 
real life. Where I came from (Dubai), there are very and I mean VERY few 
people know are using GNU/Linux. Speaking of 61 machines converted, only 
very few people (owners of these machines) have heard about it and 99% 
of those who have heard about it, had used it. And, I know people over 
there tend to use either Mac or Windows which is a fact that I don't 
like at all and have tried to changed it and managed to change the life 
of 61 machines, a side from others that I haven't converted myself.

Now, it is time for a real challenge. Convert people in real life to 
GNU/Linux.

I have just arrived very recently and I haven't yet done anything except 
getting new phone number. This is the 2nd email I send while I am here 
and it happens that you are the first team I am contacting :) I haven't 
even contacted my teams like (Ubuntu GNOME, ToriOS and StartUbuntu).

I'd like to meet you all if possible and I'd like to help as much as I 
can. Those who have worked side by side with me, they can vouch for my 
ability to help, beside my skills and knowledge :)

Some might not believe all what is written on a Wiki Page. Yes, I do 
like to prove that rather than asking people to read :D

Hope you accept me in this team and hope I could help with everything I 
have in hands.

Thanks and sorry for the long email.
