This update is warmly recommended to Ubuntu Edgy users.

See the changelog:

* Redirecting the output to /dev/null (when stopping gdm) prevented envy from stopping gdm in Edgy

Good news!

August 23, 2006 at 6:16 am (GNU/Linux, Python, Ubuntu)

Yesterday I became an Ubuntu Member and had the chance to talk with Mako and other important figures of Ubuntu. We have yet to discuss about a collaboration with the developers to provide the latest driver to Ubuntu’s users. We’ll se how it goes… 🙂

Yesterday night I found an ATI card (9100) in my old computer, plugged it in my current computer, reconfigured the Xserver and installed the ATI driver. Everything went as smooth as glass. I’m impressed. I even managed to make .deb package and there was no need to remove the restricted modules.

Oh, and now my computer is much more silent (the fan of the Nvidia card was quite noisy). I almost miss that noise…
And of course yesterday night started working on Envy… which will support ATI cards too 😉  !

PLEASE READ: The Latest Updates Break the Xserver!

August 22, 2006 at 7:08 am (Ubuntu)

The recent updates (for Ubuntu Dapper) break the Xserver. If you have already updated Ubuntu please type the following command:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core=1:1.0.2-0ubuntu10

Then restart your computer

sudo reboot

I hope the problem gets fixed soon.

Envy 0.4.2-1ubuntu2 has been released!

August 18, 2006 at 2:59 pm (GNU/Linux, Python, Ubuntu)

* All the architectures are now in main.py

* Fixed the path to the Xserver for Breezy

In other words the code is much less redundant now and Breezy users should upgrade to the latest version because of a bug which affects all previous versions.
