happy Linux convert

I finally did it. I’ve been running Ubuntu 7.10 on my personal desktop for a bit more than a week now. I never felt the urge to boot into windows again ;)

Configuration tweaks because of special hardware were minimal. MP3 collection, Slimserver, Komodo, etc. — all is up and running angain.

I also got my own Ubuntu Package Archive now and built my first Package. I packaged Robin Sonefor’s Blogposter Plugin for Tomboy, an excellent note taking program for Gnome.

More later…

Working on Ubuntu

I have a page on, where I keep track on my various (small) contributions to Ubuntu.


Update: I am no longer working on WMDLIB, since I have switched to Linux entirely. If however somebody is willing to collaborate / take over, I would try to support the effort.

WMDLIB is a Library for interfacing with the Windows Media Devices API from Python. Its aim is to make copying of files to an MTP-based MP3-Player as easy as copying a file to a directory. Tools for playlist creation will also be included.

The library is in the absolute beginnings at the moment. (Pre-Alpha)

I plan to build a COM interface to the library for the most important features, so applications written in C++ can use it, too. (Thinking of foobar2000 for example…)

WMDLIB is availeable from the Pypi project page.
