we’re happy to announce that UdooBuntu Beta 2 is ready and available. As you know, we are developing our new Official OS and collecting all your feedbacks to create YOUR perfect UDOO distribution. So, let’s see what has been included with this new release:
Since UDOO is your perfect companion for developing and creating awesome projects, we thought of integrating the most desired development environment and tools. Among the others you’ll find:
Then, in order to let everyone customize their UDOO experience, we included an handy Configuration Tool. This tool allows you to easily set up UDOO’s LVDS Touch Panels and Camera Module, customize the language and keyboard of UdooBuntu and edit lot of system settings with few clicks. This amazing configurator was brought to you by Ektor5, UDOO’s command line minister.

Then, thanks to the clever feedbacks we received from our community members, we fixed lots of bugs and added some missing kernel modules. Now, for example, Kinect, Playstation Eye, Dualshock Joypads, DVB-T Adapters, Webcams are natively supported by UDOO and working out of the box. We also added some networking-related modules such as IPTABLES. Now you will be also able to use UDOO Camera Module as an ordinary Webcam, thanks to v4l2loopback support. To start the UDOO Camera Module compatibility service, just type
sudo service camera start
And you’ll be able to capture the video stream on /dev/video7
We are really close to release a fully finished and polished UdooBuntu, so keep posting your feedbacks! Help us develop the best Maker Distro available! You can grab UdooBuntu Beta2 from UDOO’s download section
