Switching to Ubuntu for Further Development [ID:1505] (33/35)

in series: Developing emol!

video tutorial by Erik Thompson, added 06/09

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

In this episode I switch from developing in Windows XP to developing in Ubuntu Hardy Heron. The requires downloading the libraries my program depends on, downloading bazaar to download and upload my code from launchpad, and importing a new ssh key into launchpad.

The code for this episode is the 24th revision uploaded to launchpad which can be downloaded easily using bazaar (bzr branch lp:emol -r 24) or from the launchpad website: http://code.launchpad.net/emol/

I didn't know about your project, looks very interesting because it combines both a good toolkit (wx) and opengl. I'm looking forward for new episodes, keep going!


Wow, now this is the power of Python and its libraries. Just grab the code in another OS from a version system tweak here and there, and that's it. Not more than 20 minutes!

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Erik
