Not an Ubuntu Topic, but a Humanity Towards Others

Hi, I'm completely sorry to publish this article in the Ubuntu planet, as it's not related to any Ubuntu Topic.

I'm writing to you, requesting your help for one friend, coworker, Laura Cano. She has been indirectly involved in our Ubuntu Honduras Team. (She did the proof reading of our English articles).

She is currently fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for the second time. In order to recover she needs a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, this procedure is not done in Honduras. Meaning she would have to go abroad to get the transplant done as well as looking for a donor, getting the proper medical examinations, and other expenses. She cannot afford any of these because she is still recovering economically from the first episode.

If you will like to help Laura please feel free to do so: or sharing this link to your friends will be of great help!

As I mention at the beginning, this is not an Ubuntu Topic, but as the meaning of Ubuntu is Humanity Toward Others, we can help any way to this cause.


PS. If this post violates the policies of the Ubuntu Planet, please let me know, so we can remove it and prevent any issue.

Las principales razones, son que necesito trabajar con el nuevo kit de desarrollo de java 1.8 y no hay soporte oficial para la versión open source en 14.04. Aparte que nunca me sentí muy conforme con dicha versión, considero que hubieron anteriores mejores. Esta es una guía, que les permitirá migrar de Ubuntu 14.04 a 16.04. Paso 1: Aseguremos que estemos con las ultimas actualizaciones instaladas. Si tenemos una versión en español, saldría algo parecido a la imagen siguiente. Paso 2:  Abrimos la terminal, e insertamos el siguiente comando: sudo update-manager -d Saldra algo parecido a esta imagen. Le damos click al botón de actualizar.

Adding Users to Existing Groups in Ubuntu (Oneiric Ocelot)

Hi have been working in Virtual Box, this days and need to add my user to the vboxusers group. I was going to do it graphically, and suddenly I notice that the application I use for doing this job it disappear. :( So I have to use the CLI If you know the group just do this Steps sudo usermod -a -G GROUP USER where -a means append.

HOPE it works
