Tulisan ini masih sedikit melanjutkan pengalaman GNOME Recipes Hackfest 2018, namun sedikit ditambahkan atas pesanan Pak Andika (Koordinator Penerjemahan GNOME) terkait bagaimana cara menguji aplikasi dengan antar muka bahasa Indonesia (dengan file .po yang sudah kita terjemahkan).
This Hackfest are focused on GNOME Recipes and venues in AMIKOM university in Yogyakarta. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Amikom_Yogyakarta
In last year, I know there will be GNOME Hackfest in Yogyakarta and possibly in March. And I thought it wil be at end of March until Nuritzi tell in Endless Ambassador Telegram Group that it will be start from February 28th until March 2nd. I know this on February 25th. So I ask Kukuh Syafaat to go together and help since he also GNOME Foundation Members.
Actually at February 27th, there’s an outreach event at the local university. But I can’t manage to go because I arrived at Yogyakarta at 17:00 and it already finished. But I have dinner with few GNOME Developer (but no Mattias and Emel) for that day.
Did you know about EndlessOS? you can read here.
Since end of October, I’m joining Endless Ambassadors Programme. And on November 3rd until November 5th, we have reatreat in Jogjakarta with others Ambassador and Endless employee.
Today, I’m decide to use EndlessOS as my daily OS. I wanna try it, if it’s can fit with me or not. Before using EndlessOS, I’m using Ubuntu and Debian. Personally, since it’s using Linux, I have no struggle on it.
But EndlessOS is different. I according to my first impression before (I install it on another computer), it’s good for new comers but not for advance users.
Right now I’m using EndlessOS 3.3 on my X1 Carbon that using Intel Core i7 5600U and single boot. I’m downloading from Buaya. Yes that’s local repository. It’s because more faster than from the original download source.
Yes it’s fast, from boot until going to desktop. Even faster than BlankOn.
I love the wallpaper.
My laptop just work on it. Everything seems ok even I have some notes and I will put on last section of this post.
After installing, I need to make sure that my needs are ready in App Center, so I just randomly look at that.
There’s local encyclopedia, so you don’t need to connect internet everytime.
And there’s also Android Studio.
I install some of them according to my needs. They’re success installed on my system. One or two seem has problem when downloading the package. I was wondering that’s because internet connection not good. As far I know, that’s need international connection and mostly, this country connection not good at that.
There’s some “weird” in App Center. It’s has two GIMP. Probably it can make new comers feel confuse at first time. They need to choose which one is the “real” one.
My external soundcard is working here (even I just only playing music from youtube). I have Steinberg UR242. And it’s smoothly can play song from youtube.
What is missing?
TuxGuitar – Yeah! there’s no tuxguitar in App Center right now. This is my “must have apps all the time”.
Ardour – this is also in my list of apps.
Thunderbird – I can’t find it in App Center. My office use it and I already has backup from previous installation.
VirtualBox – No virtualbox. 🙂
Touchpad – My touchpad always stopped to able to scroll after suspending system (or close the screen). It’s happen in Ubuntu 17.10, and can be solved by installing xserver-xorg-input-synaptics.
Telegram Desktop – It’s not working for me. It’s always force close when I input phone number.
I found some translation that not fit (yes of course I can help to make better translations).
Bulan ini saya jajan kartu suara baru buat bermain gitar. Sebelumnya nyoba beberapa kartu suara hasil minjem dari beberapa teman. Atas rekomendasi pakar studio rekaman Nada Musika, terpilihlah Steinberg UR242.
Saya colokkan ke USB di MacOS, langsung ketedek. Saya langsung optimis bahwa ini akan berfungsi di linux (kecuali fitur DSP, karena saya belum tau entah ada atau tidak di linux). Dan benar saja, dicolokkan ke Ubuntu 17.10 langsung jreng.
Saya iseng mencoba (baca: membeli) Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 12.5″ (http://xiaomi-mi.com/notebooks/xiaomi-mi-notebook-air-125-silver/). Barang datang, dinyalakan, dan langsung babat pasang BlankOn Tambora (http://cdimage.blankonlinux.or.id/blankon/livedvd-harian/current/).
Impresi awal, laptop ini cukup keren dan bagus, kualitas bikinannya juga rapi serta dengan harga yang tidak terlalu mahal.
Instalasi BlankOn cukup berjalan mulus, semua perangkat dikenali dengan baik. Tidak ada kendala yang berarti. Just Work.
Batrenya juga tahan lama. Sementara pemakaian hanya seputar browsing, muter youtube dan nonton filem. 🙂
This is third time GNOME Asia Summit that I attended. My contribution in this summit as Asia Committee. I help everything that I can, such as:
- getting sponsor
- designing web (Asep, Piko and Kukuh also help on this)
- designing posters (Kukuh and Aris also help on this)
- coordinating with other Asia Committee, GNOME Board and Local Committee
- hand carry FANS Shoes (sponsor) from Jakarta to Delhi
I was excited actually when this year summit happen in India, it’s because Indonesia has similar culture with India and it’s common that Indonesia people watch Bollywood movie (my father still love Bollywood movie, but me, only Shakhrukh Khan and some others).
Personally, I also dreamed to visiting few historical place. I’ve been on Great Wall of China when attended GNOME Asia Summit 2016 in Beijing. And this year, we have Taj Mahal.
