Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Michael Terry, the Deja Dup developer has announced that a recent update in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot brings the promised Ubuntu One integration. Here are some screenshots:

This also means that Duplicity, the command line tool that powers Deja Dup supports Ubuntu One too. For now, Deja Dup is not yet default in Ubuntu 11.10 but this is expected to happen soon.

Unfortunately I couldn't test the actual backup feature because Ubuntu One (in Ubuntu 11.10) refuses to connect on my computer.

In other Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot news:

- LightDM is now default in Ubuntu 11.10, replacing GDM (by the way, it's default in Xubuntu too). But as expected, there's no greeter (theme) yet:

- Linux Kernel 3.0.0 has also made it into Oneiric:
