It looks like someone has made a CUPS/Google Cloud Print tool here: http://www.niftiestsoftware.com/cups-cloud-print/ And it appears the author provides a PPA: Packages: https://launchpad.net/~simon-cadman/+archive/cups-cloud-print Source code: https://github.com/simoncadman/CUPS-Cloud-Print To install it and configure it: sudo add-apt-repository ...

I believe the problem was that step 2 of the "create a new token" workflow, defined on https://one.ubuntu.com/developer/account_admin/issue_tokens/cloud/, was failing with a 503 for you because the service was down at a couple of points this weekend. You'll need to trap this situation and deal with it (a 503 indicates that you should retry the request later, ...

Getting Started Tutorial Full Documentation Getting started with a Amazon AWS account is very simple, or there is also directions to deploy test instances to local lxc containers, a third more in-depth option is to setup a MAAS (Metal As A Service) first as described also in the docs. The Getting Started section tells you how to install it and where to ...

Firstly: "cloud" is marketing jargon for virtualisation but it tends to mean flexible virtualisation, where there's some elasticity and you can move things around. That the case, you'd require more than one host machine to do it and by the sounds of it, you don't want or need that. Your real comparison is between virtualisation and no virtualisation. Why ...

No, there is no client or local sync method. At the moment all you can use is their website and upload method. They do have a developer section on their site: MEGA - Developers - MEGA Software Development Kit Give it a bit of time since this website is less than 1 day old and it should be possible to create something like U1/dropbox for this site.

The success of Ubuntu as a platform and Ubuntu's commitment to refreshing AMIs means that there are literally thousands of of images on Amazon EC2 with "ubuntu"in their name. That, combined with and the lack of Ubuntu on the "Quick Start" menu makes selecting the right AMI a non-trivial task. Some General Ubuntu Information You already may be aware of ...

As of Ubuntu 12.04, and the "0.5+bzr531" release of Juju that comes with it, Juju can only speak 3 API's: EC2 - This is actually EC2 and S3 for charm storage Orchestra - This is Cobbler + WEBDAV for charm storage. MaaS - This uses MaaS much like Orchestra used Cobbler, and MaaS has the file storage built-in rather than relying on a secondary ...

As of August 2012, Duplicity does not support Google Cloud Storage (GCS); a search of the duplicity-talk mailing list archives shows that there has been no discussion, even at a wishlist stage, of adding such support. Google Docs is supported, but that API is totally different from GCS. Wishlist bug filed recently While the Python boto module used as a ...

There is now (since 2013-07-19 - version 0.6.22) support to use Google Cloud Storage directly in duplicity. You should use gsutil config -a to create a ~/.boto config file. And then you can use duplicity like this: duplicity local_dir gs://yourbucket Also of note is that only the old authentication mechanism is supported. You should enable "Interoperable ...

This is a partial-answer that might help the next person: So far it seems that copying things to Google Drive/Docs is supported: duplicity localdir gdocs://username:password@gmail.com/remotedir/ However this is different from Google Cloud Storage. I think this should be doable since duplicity and gsutil both use boto, but I'm not sure if this requires ...

Testing with Google Music, I realized that it's all about the ID3 tag. Whatever you put there, Google uses it. it doesn't matter what the name of your files are, it's all about the ID3. Even if you have songs where the Artist and Album Artist are different, Google will display both correctly without any confusion. I suggest that you organize your music ...

Ubuntu Cloud and MAAS are different things - different layers if you like. MAAS is a low-level layer which deals with physical hardware. It is for deploying the base level software to a rack of servers quickly and easily. It can then work in conjunction with juju to deploy particular services (e.g. web servers, databases) to that hardware. This could be for ...

Why is fs_passno set to 0 on Amazon EC2 Ubuntu images? If fsck were run on boot and found problems, then it might be sitting waiting for the answer to a prompt. However, since Amazon EC2 does not provide access to the console on an instance, there is no way that you could answer the prompt and the instance would become unusable. Linked Q&A: ...

Have you tried Desktop Flickr Organizer? It is available in the Software Centre or "upload photos to Flickr" package? I don't use Flickr and have not tested them myself..so give us feedback whether either of them works. OK, now comes the hacky solution. Haven't tested that either :) Firstly you could look into flickrfs. As I understand it enables to ...

You may refer to Manual DHCP configuration in the following link http://maas.ubuntu.com/docs/configure.html#manual-dhcp There is also a nice document by DELL (Deploying workloads with Juju and MAAS) where you can find a section for using an existing DNS/DCHP server and you can find it here ...

I think this is the only thing that is known so far: http://omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/04/google-drive-is-coming-to-linux/ But there is some temporary solution available until the official client comes to Ubuntu: http://omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/04/google-drive-is-coming-to-linux/

I think this is basically answered here: How can I configure multiple deployment environments for juju? You just need to explicitly set the right keys in environments.yaml, specifically ec2-uri, s3-uri, access-key, default-image-id and secret-key. Your keystone bits should be producing the access key ID and secret key that will be used to populate those ...

The bootstrap instance runs two critical pieces of the infrastructure: Zookeeper and the provisioning agent. Here is the architecture overview: Right now this is actually a single point of failure.. though that will be solved in the near term by expanding the "bootstrap" service to 2 units either on demand, or in response to deploying a second machine. ...

As I said in another thread, when you're dealing with a single computer, can't really do "cloud" computing because at its core, cloud computing relies on scaling in some direction, be that more CPU power, more memory, disk, bandwidth, user capacity and to do that, you need multiple hardware units to be able to provision things... In the case of the other ...

I think you're not asking the right question... What we call "the cloud" is not "vitualized environments" but "services that are hosted on the network". Cloud services can be hosted on real hardware or virtual lmachines, it doesn't make difference. The reason why people tend to thing "cloud" means "virtualized" is because setting up cloud services is ...

This was the only thing that I could find: http://richard.jones.name/google-hacks/gmail-filesystem/gmail-filesystem-using.html It doesn't look that user friendly unfortunately. Good luck getting it to work. You can mount your Gmail filesystem either via fstab or on the command line using mount. To use fstab, create an entry /etc/fstab that ...

The short answers are, "no" and "no". The shutdown command has always made me a little nervous, because of the finality of these terminations. The default AMI's used are for EBS instances, so you can at least snapshot all the instances before the shutdown, but I don't think there's an easy way to then start new instances with these EBS volumes just yet. I ...

To install a private cloud you need the hardware and networking infrastructure to run a cloud (Recommended at least 6 servers and gigabit networking) and Ubuntu Server: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuCloudInfrastructure This wiki page will outline the step by step instructions on setting up your own private cloud. Canonical also offers this as a ...

We are only syncing pictures at the moment because the API the Android client uses has not been yet optimised for large files (mostly it doesn't support resuming failed uploads). Because videos are on average much larger than pictures, we've started off with pictures. Making our APIs support uploading large files is something we have on our plates to fix, so ...

Your environments.yaml is basically the same as it was without keystone. The only difference is where you're getting your access-key and secret-key from. Using the deprecated auth system, the 'nova-manage project zipfile' spat out a zip archive that contained all of this per project. Now, you need to create the EC2 credentials in keystone for specific ...

You can do this by running the command ec2-describe-regions from the command line (if you have ec2-api-tools installed available in multiverse). $ ec2-describe-regions REGION eu-west-1 ec2.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com REGION sa-east-1 ec2.sa-east-1.amazonaws.com REGION us-east-1 ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com REGION ap-northeast-1 ...

You will be able to access Ubuntu One, Dropbox, Sugar Sync, 4shared, Mediafire, Google Drive and most other cloud services through their websites. From there, most of them will allow you to rename, relocate, open, download ro execute the files with password permission. This will only work with an internet connection, if you are unable to establish such a ...

DISCLAMIER: I AM NOT AN OPENSTACK EXPERT. THE FOLLOWING IS MERELY AN OPINION AND MAY BE OUTDATED OR COMPLETELY INCORRECT.
