Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) links are now live

|

With the recent launch Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) I have added a links for those versions to any app contained in the natty repositories. I also fixed a few bugs so every app should now have up to date versions and links for each of the distributions tracked on Linux App Finder.

Ubuntu Karmic Koala Repositories Added

| |

Ubuntu's Karmic Koala repositories have now been added. I haven't run a complete database update because it takes ages, but any new or updated apps will have the latest links. Install Now will work regardless of what is shown on the screen because it looks for what is in your local repositories.

Medibuntu's Karmic repositories have also been added.

Ubuntu Intrepid Repositories Have Been Added

| | | |

All of the Ubuntu Intrepid repositories have been added and a complete database update was run. I also cleared out a few old repos that weren't supported anymore.

New Ubuntu, Medibuntu, and OpenSuse Repositories

| | | |

Some long overdue repositories were finally added. They include Ubuntu hardy-backports, Ubuntu hardy-partner, Medibuntu hardy, and OpenSuse 11.0. A complete database update has not been run, but as new versions of apps get released all of the repositories will be synced.

I'll be adding the Ubuntu intrepid repositories in the near future and looking at some others as well.

Ubuntu Hardy Heron Repositories Added

| | | |

Links to the Ubuntu Hardy Heron repositories have been added. I haven't done a complete update of the database, but each app will be updated whenever a new version is released.

Debian Lenny and Ubuntu Gutsy Repos Added

| | | |

Support for the Debian Lenny and Ubuntu Gutsy repositories have been added. I haven't done a complete sync with every app yet, so for now a listing will only be added once a new version becomes available.

Ubuntu's Missing Link

| | |

Ubuntu has a program installation problem. To be fair, nearly all Linux distributions have the same issue, but I'll pick on Ubuntu because its popular and is the choice for many users switching from Windows. The problem I am referring to is the missing menu link after many graphical apps are installed. If you spend any time browsing Ubuntu Forums it won't take long to run across the post of a frustrated user who doesn't know how to launch the application they just installed. While Ubuntu can't control what isn't in the repositories, I'd like to see them put a greater focus on getting all programs in the repositories to include menu entries.
