Working with github

Heyo all! I’ve been quiet since SELF happened in June but since late July I’ve working quite a bit on github lately on UBports, Magic Device Tool and the Kubuntu Manual. I’ve also been making a few changes with the Kubuntu Podcast team to get our show on Pocket Casts Android podcast app and have taken over editing the show.


Dec was when I uploaded the Kubuntu Manual on github for the first time.

UBports-Site_LogoThe UBport is a project lead mostly by one guy to port Ubuntu Touch to as many devices as possible! I’ve been fixing grammar and typo issues since he is not a native English speaker.

The Magic Device Tool has been getting merges from me for similar fixes as well, as well as some testing on the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. It’s a series of scripts that can flash all the supported Ubuntu Touch devices from BQ, Meizu, Nexus 4 and 7 as well as some UBport devices with the newest release.

The Kubuntu Manual has been a bit of a child of mine for over a year or so since I basically took over documentation for the Kubuntu project. It’s currently being worked on for the 16.10 release but we are also adding to the 16.04 one as well that is on



Once a month fellow Kubuntu members Rick Timmis, Ovidiu-Florin Bogdan and I do a Podcast highlighting the work that has been done in the Kubuntu world aka #kubuntu-devel on IRC/Kubuntu Devel on Telegram. We also go over what we have been doing in and out of the project, our picks of Linux based apps in, a few interviews from people in KDE, Ubuntu and other Open Source related places, as well as my Game On section where we are proving you don’t have to be on Windows to get your “Game On”! We have the Show on BBB (BigBlueButton) which is on a server that was donated/sponsored to use by the company.
