Topic: Way Off Topic / Open Source?

I probably wouldn’t volunteer my time to a project if the contributions I made wouldn’t be open to the public. Open source supporters need to help businesses that push and popularize open source—that’s why I’m here. =D

Topic: Applications / FlickrUppr hanging for me on Mac OSX


I’m encountering the same problem on both my Linux machines, wherein upon trying to start applications that use the LCD module the BUG hangs. Specifically, it creates the LCD output window and then becomes unresponsive. Here’s my setup:

Ubuntu release 7.04 (feisty)
`eclipse` package from feisty repos (provides Eclipse 3.2.2)
`sun-java6-jre` package from feisty-multiverse repos (I’m assuming this provides the right runtime environment for the BUG).

Ubuntu release 6.10 (edgy)
`eclipse` package from edgy repos (provides Eclipse 3.2.1)
`sun-java6-jre` package from edgy-backports.

Hi finsprings,

We are working on a schedule now. And… will have a new build very soon. Will keep you posted! Thank you for the inquiry.

Topic: Applications / Help running the apps?

Thanks, this helps. I never saw this tutorial for the app, and when checking the history I see that the page was only added yesterday.

The FlickrUppr walkthrough shows you up to simulate motion detection, but it is indeed entering 'motion' on the console:


Look for 'Trigger a motion event by typing motion in the console view' on that page.

Topic: Suggestion Box / IRC Chat room

I myself would prob just used a detached client as I already hangout in one chat room sometimes so it would just be easier for me to open up another one

Topic: Suggestion Box / IRC Chat room

Hi Duster,

No this is a great idea :). In fact we’ve been experimenting (http://eclipse.org/ecf) with adding IRC chat directly into the SDK, but because of some versioning issues are unable to release it. I’ll get back to you when we get something setup for this.

Out of curiosity, would you use an integrated IRC client in Eclispe if it ‘just worked’ or do you prefer to use a dedicated client?

Topic: Applications / Help running the apps?

Yep finsprings you got it. And for some added context, the 4 modules you are using in the Virtual BUG utilize the same Java interfaces (and OSGi services) as the real hardware modules. However since they are all virtual we needed some way of getting the relevant information to the module. In the case of Motion, we decided on extending the OSGi shell as a way of signaling that motion occurred.

Hey finsprings,

Our middle name is open source! In fact, even our pet’s middle names are open source, but if you ask them they probably wouldn’t realize it. In any case the source to the SDK and virtual bug are detailed on the FAQ page here:


We’re also working on getting the source attached to the JARs and that should be available in the next SDK release.
