So there was quite some emotion when I was on vacations. Matthew Garrett has published a detailed review of the Automatix tool issues on behalf of the Technical Board. I’m not going to comment all the issues with Automatix, how Feisty has made easy for the beginner to install codecs and other packages not directly shipped with Ubuntu (for legal reasons), or all the fuss that usually surrounds all Automatix discussions, with pros and cons camping firmly on their own grounds.
No. I’d rather focus on Christer’s very constructive initiative. He’s decided to post all the community supported alternatives to Automatix. Clever :)
- I’ll edit this blog post so all the alternatives are linked on the same place, and I’ll easily find them if I need to recommend one or the other when helping on UF (I’m sooooo selfish)
- If it looks interesting to the French community, I can ask Christer if he does mind I post a translation in the French sections of my blog
Here it goes:
Thanks a lot, Christer!
EDIT2: French version here
