Maverick Meerkat

Installing Cocoon on Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10

This is an updated version of a how-to written for Intrepid (8.10), now horrendously out-of-date. It was written for Maverick (10.10) but should also work on Lucid (10.04).

No knowledge of Ubuntu or Linux is assumed; the intended audience is someone who's managed to install Ubuntu and isn't too intimidated by the Terminal. (Hint: You can copy and paste, but in Terminal, pasting is Ctrl + Shift +C)

A tale of two Maverick wallpapers

After seeing a call for artwork for Ubuntu 10.10 wallpapers on OMG! Ubuntu, I submitted a handful of photos to the Ubuntu Artwork pool on Flickr, just for kicks. Not long after, I discovered that two of my photos-- the feather and the happy cinnamon-- made the final 17 chosen for inclusion in the Maverick release. It's an honor, and a geeky dream come true.
