Ubuntu Studio Page Live & Under Construction

The Ubuntu Studio page here on the site has just gone, live. I wish there had been more I could cover other than a basic install guide, and providing the default Ubuntu Basics tutorials along with it. I will however be taking suggestions on OS specific guides I should provide. For the sake of not repeating myself you can check it out under the “Derivatives” Menu or at this link.

Contribution Page Underway

< Contributions >

This last summer I began work on the Ubuntu Video Tutorials website. As it evolved I began to relize that I was soon going to run out of ideas. (You might think I already have…) I would always need to produce new basics guides to each distrobution, but that really isn’t enough. About three months into the production of the website I realized I had really started something. From there I purchased the domain. At this point it started to dawn on me that at some point I was going to need to provide some kind of documentation regarding contributions to the site. I wanted contributes, but I also wanted them to reflect my previous setups and have the videos in all the same places so not to confuse users.

Now for the anouncement: I will be releasing the Contribution page very shortly. It will be merged with the suggestions page and will offer viewers and repeat visitors a way supporting the site and improving it.

I will be accepting videos produced by individual users if the quality of the work is original. I will not discriminate with voice quality so long as it is clear enough for me to hear. Video quality and how original the idea is will be the biggest deciding factor. Those of you who wish to become editors or authors will have that opportunity, after completing between 5-10 quality tutorials. Though uploading will be my responsibility for security concerns.

Ubuntu Studio Edition?

Hey guys, you all know I’ve been working creating Ubuntu Video Tutorials for a long time, and I’ve created Basics Video Series for most of the Ubuntu derivatives for those of you who want to get started with one of them. I am looking into creating a Ubuntu Studio Basics Series but I have no idea what to cover in it.

Ubuntu Studio is a powerful feature focused operating system designed with productivity in mind compared to general use. It features a vast array of software designed solely for the purpose of creative design. Most prominent are the tools for Audio production, and Graphics Design.

I feel that I could do a few tutorials covering things like Audacity because I use it on a regular basis. As well as touch on things like Gimp, and Inkscape for there power. Unfortunately the problem is similar to trying to do five to seven introduction videos covering the breadth of Adobe Creative Suite.

I want to know what you guys think about this and what you guys think about the quality of the other basics series. Comments are really wanted, and some feedback would really be appreciated.

Hotot Twitter Client

[ ?posts_id=4302655&dest=-1]

In this Ubuntu Video Tutorial we will be looking at installing the Hotot Twitter Client. Hotot has been in the Ubuntu news as of late and I thought that I might get a tutorial up on it. The tutorial is vary basic, demonstrating the process of adding the PPA to the software center then installing it. Hotot is a very slick looking client compared to many other options.

How To Add Applications To The Menu Manually

[ ?posts_id=4262226&dest=-1]

In This Ubuntu Video Tutorial we will be looking at editing the main menu to add an application to it. This is generally done when an applications is compiled from source or installed from the terminal. These are circumstances where the applications launcher has not been added to the menu automatically. What we will be doing is adding an application to the menu by entering only a few simple lines of text into a dialog box to create the launcher.

Thanks to Erich for submitting the request.
