Lernid 0.4 Released And Demo

I have just released Lernid 0.4 to the Lernid Releases PPA. This release incorporates the final features that I planned out for the first major release, and it is now onto bug fixing in preparation for our first full-scale event that can use Lernid – Ubuntu Developer Week.

Many of you are probably curious to see Lernid in action, so tomorrow I will be giving a short presentation (around 20 minutes) to talk about Lernid…using Lernid! I will talk about the project, it’s direction, show off a few features and answer questions.

It will take place at 7pm UTC. To get involved you will need to install and use Lernid to connect. Install it by following these instructions (on Karmic):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lernid-devs/lernid-releases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lernid

When it is installed just do the following:

  1. Click Applications -> Internet -> Lernid to load Lernid.
  2. Select ‘Ubuntu Example Week’ from the Event drop-down box and enter a nickname (don’t include spaces in the nickname, this is a known bug).
  3. When Lernid loads you will see the session scheduled for tomorrow and what time it is in your local timezone. When it comes to the session time, fire up Lernid: you will see the session happen in the Classroom pane.

I am looking forward to showing you all Lernid tomorrow!

    Hi

    Just installed the latest update and I now get the following error.

    Traceback (most recent call last): File “/usr/bin/lernid”, line 37, in import poppler ImportError: No module named poppler

    Hope this is fixable before Wed.

    Thanks

    Clive

    Liked the interface very much, would be more useful if there is a minimize to tray or exit options on close.

  • jono

    Odd, that should have installed it for you. Anyway, just install python-poppler to fix.

    I have followed the instructions but get a load of exceptions raised:

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    I’m on Karmic and installed it exactly as described.

    Works great! Good job :)

    Jeh, it looks like I have missed it, in this blog there is at the top “Posted on January 5, 2010 – by jono” and at bottom post date “January 5th, 2010 at 2:17 am”. It looks like little misunderstanding what “tomorrow” is. :)

  • Clive Littlewood
