Ubuntu Center – web control for your ubuntu machine



I ran across ubuntucenter today, which aims to be a web based control panel for any ubuntu based machine, providing file access, etc. Here’s their summary…

Ubuntu Center is a web based interface for accessing all kinds of information that’s being stored on your computer running Ubuntu Breezy, Kubuntu, XUbuntu, or even nUbuntu box. Ubuntu Center accomplishes all of this by integrating PHP software licensed under the GPL license in one giant package suitable for use on a Ubuntu computer. This release adds tons of new features and bug fixes and is suitable for everyday use.


Looks interesting, I’m wondering how they deal with accessing multiple users data. (I admit I’ve only looked at a few screenshots so far.) The screenshots look well done though. I’ve been meaning to get a kubuntu setup going for some time now. (Maybe even dual boot on my primary desktop….) I’m curious to see how well kubuntu performs on the same hardware as Mandriva 2006. One of my big reluctances, I suppose, to a migration to kubuntu is that I’ve got the process of rebuilding srpms from cooker to a routine, I don’t know how easy/accessible it would be to do the same with ubuntu….

What little I have seen of kubuntu I liked, it seemed I had quicker access to newer versions of software and some things that I’ve seen frustrations with on Mandriva worked fairly well “out of the box.” I might wind up with some time in the next week or two to give kubuntu a more permanent or long-term test.
