We are working hard in Geardome finishing Ozone, our latest game for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Cesar is currently making all the artwork under Ubuntu and we just released the first screenshots of Ozone’s art!
Check it out here.
With the help of César Sampedro I have started a development diary for our latest game for iPhone and iPod Touch: Ozone.
César is the lead artist in Geardome and has previously worked in games such as Motorstorm and Clive Barker’s Jericho.
Some time ago I was writing about how you can minimize any application to the system tray in Ubuntu.
My main concern was minimizing the Thunderbird window to the system tray so I can have the mail reader running in the background.
Now I have just found a nice extension that do what I need.
FireTray is an extension for Firefox and Thunderbird that let you minimize both applications to the system tray, and still have them running in the background.
I have it running now in Ubuntu and it seems to work very fine!!
I have just installed a fresh copy of the new Ubuntu 8.10.
In order to mantain all the packages installed in my old system I generated a list of the currently installed packages, so I could restore them later.
dpkg --get-selections > packages
This generates a file with all the installed packages in your system. Just copy it to a safe place, usbstick or CD.
After you have installed the fresh copy of Ubuntu you can recover what was installed in your previous system with the file you generated and the following commands:
dpkg --set-selections < packages apt-get dselect-upgrade
Today I was googling to figure out how I could minimize any application to the Ubuntu system tray.
I am very used to Outlook and I have recently migrated to Thunderbird, so I was looking for a method to minimize Thunderbird to the system tray.
I found two solutions.
The first one was New Mail Icon, which is an extension for Thunderbird. It works like a charm, putting the Thunderbird icon in the system tray. This icon changes when a new mail is received.
I also found the AllTray application. With this software you can minimaze any application you want to the Ubuntu system tray. Pretty cute!
To install it, open a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install alltray
