Re: Ubuntu One features


Hi, I voted for this idea. However, I think or feel that this idea could have more future if the idea is analyzed and designed from Ubuntu One because I think that this idea could lose amongst several Ubuntu ideas (maybe there are several ideas about that and some ideas could use different mechanisms to attain it).

A naive question, where can I find the roadmap of Ubunto One? Which are the features that Ubuntu One thinks to develop?

I had an idea on Ubuntu Brainstorm http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/7972/ which seems related to this. I've added a second implementation in the way Paul suggests, with these comments, so if you like it, please vote there.

        Hi Paul,

        This is a fantastic idea and something that we want to do in a
        version of Ubuntu after 9.10 is finished. Please send in any
        other ideas that you have. Also, we'll be getting rid of the
        invitation waiting list completely very soon, so anyone will

    Hi again, I have been thinking about this idea. This idea could
    improve if when we are downloading the configuration using the
    desktop application (of ubuntu one), this application suggests the
    installation of the application associated to that configuration
    (obviously, if this application is not installed yet). One example
    of the desktop application of Ubuntu one would be:

    * Ubuntu One has available the following configurations, please
    select the configuration that you want to download:
    --- Emacs         x
    --- Mozilla
    --- Empathy     x

    You are decided to download Empathy and Emacs, but Emacs is not
    currently installed in your O.S., do you want to install Emacs
    from Ubuntu repositories?

    --> Yes

    Using this, we could restore our workspace in any machines in very
    little time or we could install several O.S. (Ubuntu in this case)
    with applications necessary without spending too much time.

    Well, I think it is not very complicated to do that. We need to
    execute like "sudo apt-get", configuring repository source
    on-the-fly. Probably, I am very noob to understand the real
    complexity of that.  For example, if the person needs to install
    Emacs with Auctex (Latex for Emacs), using this idea maybe the
    person has to install manually Auctex later anyway.

    Ok, I hope it can aim you.
