Connect Your Linux PC to Your Android Phone with UbuntuOne Files

Bridge the gap between your Android phone and your Ubuntu PC with UbuntuOne Files cloud service.

While every major platform has a cloud solution, Linux Ubuntu is not an exception. With UbuntuOne evolving as a worthy alternative for Dropbox, Android users can now download their UbuntuOne Files to their PC.

To clear things out, the UbuntuOne cloud service does not require an Ubuntu PC. It can work with Windows PC or Mac, but it performs best with the Linux OS. It provides a seamless folder and file management experience for Ubuntu users. To get the UbuntuOne Files app, you can download it at the Android Market. After that, you now have an immediate access to your files stored in your UbuntuOne cloud account. The app has a built-in photo viewer, and hands off other file formats to its default viewer.

If you have a premium UbuntuOne account, you can also add the UbuntuOne music app to stream songs from your account to your phone. Are you using your UbuntuOne Files already? Then share your impressions on this new Android app at the comments.

Ubuntu Takes a W7 Look with Linux: W7

Written on August 23, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Tired of your usual Linux Ubuntu theme, or you're just a fan of Aero Glass? Let just say that you need to work in a Linux platform but is confused with the interface. How can you incorporate a familiar Windows UI to your OS? Never to worry because Ubuntu can pose as Windows 7 with Linux: W7 Theme.

The Linux: W7 Theme is a free script that alters your Linux GUI in a Windows 7 look and feel. This can do a remarkable job for you, especially if you long for a well-known Windows interface. To make your browser more Windows-like, you can download either a GNOME or a KDE version, plus some Firefox themes. To install the new Linux: W7 theme, you need to do some terminal works first. But if your copy-paste skills are up for a strike, it can suffice. However, it’s important that you also make a back-up before installing it — in case you might switch back to your old theme in the future — because there’s no easy uninstall procedure as of the moment.
