Tra le novità che potrebbero approdare in Fedora 20 troviamo anche il nuovo GNOME Software.

GNOME Software
Tra le tanti progetti attualmente sviluppato dal team GNOME troviamo anche il nuovo software center denominato GNOME Software.
GNOME Software è un nuovo software center attraverso il quale potremo effettuare ricerche, installare e rimuovere applicazioni e giochi il tutto da un’interfaccia grafica moderna e molto intuitiva. Come per Ubuntu Software Center anche il nuovo GNOME Software disporrà di applicazioni e giochi suddivisi in categorie con tanto di screenshot, dettagli e la possibilità di effettuare recensioni, dare giudizi ecc. Grazie al supporto per gnome-packagekit è possibile utilizzare GNOME Software in qualsiasi distribuzione Linux proprio come accade per Package Manager. Tra le prime distribuzione che potrebbero avere GNOME Software di default troviamo Fedora 20, ad indicarlo è Richard Hughes con un post sul blog GNOME confermando che molto probabilmente nella nuova release troveremo il nuovo software center.

GNOME Software

GNOME Software permetterà di gestire anche gli aggiornamenti, controllare tutte le applicazioni e pacchetti installati oltre ad includere un gestore dei repository.
Per maggiori informazioni su GNOME Software basta consultare la pagina dedicata dal portale GNOME.
In questa pagina troverete altre novità proposte per Fedora 20.
  • Marco Perasole

    sarebbe possibile installarlo su Arch? 🙂

    • non è presente in aur puoi comunque installartelo da sorgenti

      • Marco Perasole

        mi indicheresti il modo per farlo ? 🙂 te ne sarei molto grato…lo trovo utilissimo!

        • scarichi il sorgente da https://launchpad.net/~atareao/+archive/atareao/+files/calendar-indicator_0.0.2.7-1ubuntu1.tar.gz
          e dal file redame trovi le indicazioni su come installarlo

            fatto..ma nel Readme trovo scritto questo: 
              gnome-encfs
            ===========

            *gnome-encfs* integrates [EncFS][efs] folders into the GNOME desktop by storing
            their passwords in the [keyring][gkr] and optionally mounting them at login
            using GNOME’s autostart mechanism.

            *gnome-encfs* allows you to use strong passwords for EncFS folders while still
            mounting them painlessly (i.e. no password prompt). This is an advantage over
            automount solutions like *pam-encfs* and *pam-mount* which require to use the
            same password for EncFS folders as for your local user account. This is bad
            because local account passwords usually are weaker than those one should use
            for encrypting online stored data, e.g. in a [Dropbox][dbx].

            Download
            ——–

            Download the [package][dlp] *or* checkout the source:

            $ hg clone http://bitbucket.org/obensonne/gnome-encfs

            Installation
            ————

            $ cd /path/to/gnome-encfs
            $ install gnome-encfs /usr/local/bin

            **Note:** You can run *gnome-encfs* right from the extracted package but to
            make use of the automount feature at GNOME login, it must be placed somewhere
            in *PATH* (as configured during a login to GNOME). Using the install command
            above ensures this requirement is fulfilled.

            Usage
            —–

            ### Add an EncFS folder

            Suppose you have an EncFS folder at `~/.Private.encrypted` which should get
            mounted to `~/Private`. Make it known to *gnome-encfs*:

            $ gnome-encfs -a ~/.Private.encrypted ~/Private
            EncFS password:
            Mount at login [Y/n]:

            This adds the EncFS path, its mount location and password to the GNOME keyring
            and sets up a GNOME autostart entry to mount it at GNOME login (if enabled).

            ### Mount an EncFS folder

            If you said *y* above to the login mount question, the EncFS folder gets
            mounted automatically at GNOME login. If you prefer to mount on demand, you do
            that with

            $ gnome-encfs -m ~/Private

            which looks up the password in the keyring and does the mounting without
            the need to enter the password manually.

            Unmount as usual, using *fusermount*:

            $ fusermount -u ~/Private

            ### Other tasks

            You can also show, edit and remove EncFS folders handled by *gnome-enfs*:

            $ gnome-encfs -h

            Usage: gnome-encfs –list
            gnome-encfs –mount [ENCFS-PATH-or-MOUNT-POINT]
            gnome-encfs –add ENCFS-PATH MOUNT-POINT
            gnome-encfs –edit MOUNT-POINT
            gnome-encfs –remove MOUNT-POINT

            Painlessly mount and manage EncFS folders using GNOME’s keyring.

            Options:
            –version show program’s version number and exit
            -h, –help show this help message and exit
            -l, –list list all EncFS items stored in keyring
            -m, –mount mount all or selected EncFS paths stored in keyring
            -a, –add add a new EncFS item to keyring
            -e, –edit edit an EncFS item in keyring
            -r, –remove remove an EncFS item from keyring

            Usage should be straight forward – otherwise [submit an issue][itr].

            ### Automatically unmount EncFS folders on logout

            Unfortunately there’s no equivalent to GNOME’s autostart scripts which could be
            used to automatically unmount your EncFS folders on logout (without shutting
            down). However, there’s a manual solution using a [GDM hook script][gdm]:
            `/etc/gdm/PostSession/Default`. Open this file in an editor (requires *root*
            privileges) and add these lines:

            mount -t fuse.encfs | grep “user=$USER” | awk ‘{print $3}’ | while read MPOINT ; do
            sudo -u $USER fusermount -u “$MPOINT”
            done

            This script is executed whenever you logout from GNOME. With this line, it
            looks for mounted EncFS folders of the user currently logging out. Then it
            unmounts each, using the `fusermount` command (note that this command is
            executed as *root*, that’s why there is a `sudo -u $USER` before the
            `fusermount` command).

            This works independent of *gnome-encfs*, i.e. it unmounts **any** EncFS folder
            of the user logging out.
