Facebook App Ubuntu 13.04

The desktop Application for Facebook I am talking about in this article displays the facebook profile and offers many features, like buttons, friend requests, messages, groups, games, notifications, interests and many others.

facebook app ubuntu 13.04

Before we start the installation of the facebook app, we have to install the needed dependencies: gir1.2-launchpad-integration-3.0, liblaunchpad-integration-3.0-1, liblaunchpad-integration-common.

$ wget -c$ wget -c$ wget -c

$ wget -c$ wget -c$ wget -c

Unfortunately, Ubuntu developers have deemed Smart Scopes too unstable for 13.04. The new plan is to ship it with 13.10 in October. If you simply must have them, you can install Smart Scopes, but - be forewarned - they are buggy and unstable.

There's another missing feature you may notice in Ubuntu 13.04. The Ubuntu One Music Store has been ripped out of Rhythmbox, Ubuntu's default music player (the plugin is gone from Banshee as well). The music-player based version of the Ubuntu Music Store has been retired in favor of the web-based store, which debuted just before Ubuntu 12.10 last year.

Ubuntu 13.04 comes with the latest version of applications we have come to expect from a modern distro. LibreOffice 4.0 (the latest) is preinstalled, and version 20 of Firefox has been modified with Ubuntu-specific settings that give it Apt support, meaning you can install software directly from within Firefox using the apt:// protocol.

Apart from that, there seems to be very little else preinstalled in the way of applications. Granted, given the 800MB or so default ISO image, it cannot contain the same amount of software as the 4GB+ behemoths distributed by other distros (although our cover DVD is another story altogether), and we don't want Ubuntu to go the way of Windows and preload tons of crapware that you then would have to remove to get a half-usable system; however, it is still a bit surprising how sparse the default Ubuntu 13.04 is and how some all-time favorites, such as the GIMP graphics program, are missing.

Every fourth release, occurring in the second quarter of even-numbered years, has been designated as a long-term support (LTS) release.[7] The desktop version of LTS releases for 10.04 and earlier were supported for three years, with server version support for five years. LTS releases 12.04 and newer are freely supported for five years. Through the ESM paid option, support can be extended even longer, up to a total of ten years for 18.04.[8] The support period for non-LTS releases is 9 months.[9] Prior to 13.04, it had been 18 months.

In early November, the Electronic Frontier Foundation made a statement on the shopping lens issue, "Technically, when you search for something in Dash, your computer makes a secure HTTPS connection to, sending along your search query and your IP address. If it returns Amazon products to display, your computer then insecurely loads the product images from Amazon's server over HTTP. This means that a passive eavesdropper, such as someone sharing a wireless network with you, will be able to get a good idea of what you're searching for on your own computer based on Amazon product images. It's a major privacy problem if you can't find things on your own computer without broadcasting what you're looking for to the world."[180]

On 17 October 2012, Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu 13.04 would be named Raring Ringtail and said about this release "[In the next six months] we want to have the phone, tablet and TV all lined up. So I think it's time to look at the core of Ubuntu and review it through a mobile lens: let's measure our core platform by mobile metrics, things like battery life, number of running processes, memory footprint, and polish the rough edges that we find when we do that."[182]

The Wubi installer was dropped as of 13.04, due to its incompatibility with Windows 8 and general lack of support and development.[183][184] Previously, on 29 October 2012 at the Ubuntu Developer Summit registration, there had been a discussion of redesigning Wubi for Ubuntu 13.04.[185]

In reviewing Ubuntu 13.04 Jim Lynch from Desktop Linux Reviews said, "I found Ubuntu 13.04 to be a slightly disappointing upgrade. While there are definitely some enhancements in this release, there's also nothing very special about it ... Alas, there's nothing in Ubuntu 13.04 that makes me want to consider it for use as my daily distro. Don't misunderstand me, there's nothing overtly wrong with Ubuntu 13.04 either. It installed and performed very well for me. Unity 7 also has some helpful and attractive updates that Ubuntu users will enjoy, and there are other things in this release that help improve the overall Ubuntu experience ... I suspect it is simply because Ubuntu has settled into a comfortable middle age, it works and it works very well for what it does."[187]

Jim Lynch of Linux Desktop Reviews described the release as "boring" and noted, "alas, Ubuntu 13.10 follows in the footsteps of Ubuntu 13.04. The big new desktop feature is Smart Scopes ... Beyond that there's not a whole lot that is interesting or exciting to talk about. It turns out that Saucy Salamander is one truly dull amphibian. Canonical really should rename this release to 'Snoozing Salamander' instead." Lynch described the Smart Scopes, "this is a very useful function, and it can save you a lot of time when looking for information. I understand that some people will regard this as a privacy violation, no problem. There's an easy way to disable Smart Scopes."[194]

In a review in DistroWatch, Jesse Smith detailed a number of problems found in testing this release, including boot issues, the decision to have Ubuntu Software only offer Snaps, which are few in number, slow, use a lot of memory and do not integrate well. He also criticized the ZFS file system for not working correctly and the lack of Flatpak support. He concluded, "these issues, along with the slow boot times and spotty wireless network access, gave me a very poor impression of Ubuntu 20.04. This was especially disappointing since just six months ago I had a positive experience with Xubuntu 19.10, which was also running on ZFS. My experience this week was frustrating - slow, buggy, and multiple components felt incomplete. This is, in my subjective opinion, a poor showing and a surprisingly unpolished one considering Canonical plans to support this release for the next five years."[348]

Many people have used my previous guides (Upgrade Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10, Upgrade Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04, Upgrade Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10, Upgrade Ubuntu 12.10 to 13.04, Upgrade Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10) and have sent me good feedback as you can see in the polls and comments of those guides. So, I promise you will have a nice and easy time upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr :)

If you found this guide useful you can share it with your friends or like on facebook. I will let you know when I upload new guides. Thank you for reading and I look forward to reading your comments!

With many LXDE components, Lubuntu also uses well-known applications, such as Chromium, Openbox, Pidgin, to name a few. The Lubuntu documentation contains more information on the project and the applications used available.

From ColdFusion 10 and 11 versions, the apache connector binaries do not work with all Linux flavors because of compatibility issues. To address this issue, Adobe is providing the connector binaries for RHEL 6.4. These binaries are also tested on RHEL 6.5 and 6.7; Ubuntu 13.04, 14.04, and 15.04; CentOS 6 and 7; and SUSE Linux 11 for CF 11. Adobe is also giving the connector source, enabling you to compile and generate connector binary by yourself.

BTW... I tested using VMware Fusion 5.0.3 and an Ubuntu 13.04 Guest however although I haven't compared the latest Linux VMware Tools for VMware Player/Workstation I see no reason why it shouldn't work in VMware Workstation 9.0.2 or VMware Player 5.0.2 although one might want to use the the VMware Tools for the corresponding VMware product version! It worth a try either way.

I wondered why your first post got deleted, anyway... Obviously Ubuntu 13.04 is not supported in VMware Fusion 4.x and since I actually never used v4.x of Fusion (went from 3.x to 5), never examined the contents of the Linux VMware Tools in v4.x of Fusion and compared them to VMware Tools that officially support Ubuntu 13.04 the only thing I can say is I doubt it will work however what do you have to loose in trying.

Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) for Google Nexus 7 was announced in late October, where Jono Bacon stated that they will run the stock Ubuntu Desktop on the Nexus 7 tablet while focussing on the core of Ubuntu.

A core goal for Ubuntu 13.04 is to get Ubuntu running on a Nexus 7 tablet. To be clear, this is not going to be a tablet Unity interface running on the 8/16GB Nexus 7, but instead will focus on getting the current Ubuntu Desktop running on the Nexus so that we can ensure pieces such as the kernel, power management and other related areas are working effectively on a tablet device.
