In April, 2018 the new Long Term Support version of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will be released. It will take a few weeks/months, before there will be stable, bug-fixed versions, before Labdoo has implemented a new image for cloning, updated manuals, wikis and video tutorials. But then this release again will be our technological platform up to 2020. Please add here your comments, wishes concerning 18....

Hi all, From time to time we receive thank you messages that can be very wonderful and touching. Some time ago Frank from Hub Zurich suggested the idea to create a place where we could add these sentences so others could get to know about them. This idea is similar to the concept of "Labdoo Stories" but used only for short and quick gratitude messages. I have created a temporary document...

Aber seht selbst... In wenigen Monaten werden die Anschaffungskosten wieder...

Hi. While installing Rachel I noticed the package includes certain .bat files that would execute some .exe files. If I am not mistaken, those .exe files would start a kind of PHP server (uwamp) included in Rachel so that Wikipedia can be used with search funtionalities. Again, if I am not wrong, those .bat and .exe will not work on a Linux Ubuntu computer and therefore Labdoo laptop...

Dear hub/edoovillage manager and member of the Labdoo community: We are writing to let you know a couple of relevant developments that require your collaboration. First is to let you know that we just added a new platform feature called 'Labdoo Hub Semaphore'. This feature allows hub managers to modify the status of their hub depending on whether it's 'open', temporarily 'inactive', or '...

Hi, some of you "complained" about the size of the archives of images for cloning - and you were right. So images for cloning were shrunk with an new concept to 7 GB :) and the number of images was reduced to 3:
  • PAE32_16_04_LTS,
  • PAE64_16_04_LTS and
  • the specific image for refugee projects in Germany PAE64_16_04_LTS_refugees_DE.

Dear Labdoo Team Recently I had a very unpleasant experience with a group of people who pushed me to give them laptops for one of their projects. I had to say NO because they did not fulfill the initial requirements. Nevertheless especially one person got angry and was fighting back. This did go on including a nasty phone call. I was coming close to explode because of their stubbornness and...
