Yesterday in the afternoon in the GNOME Meeting in Pamplona we work in adding a new entry to the nautilus context menĂº to share folder to the network using samba and nfs. It was a good exercice to show people a real example on how we usually try to develop things for GNOME, but the Bonobo component syntax made the example too complex for newcomers.

After that we present GNOME 2.8 using Ubuntu: we can see in action HAL, DBUS and gvm, vino, gnome system tools, evolution and things like the new printing dialog. The show goes well and things normally "just works".

Today we plan to sign the legal paper for the GNOME Hispano Assocation in Spain that we are pushing since last GUADEC Hispana in Extremadura, the famous LinEx distribution region.

Txema has show me a video that he created last night at 5 a.m. when we end the night. It is killer: a program that takes a music song and mix the photos using the song rhythmbox and some basic effects.. The results are wonderful but the application runs only in Windows. We need something like that in Linux.

Right now Rodrigo is trying to show jhbuild use and then, we will try to solve some easy fix bug to show people how things work.

We plan to start the return to home around 13:30 and lunch in the road.
