    Linux Development

    I am currently a CIS major and i have done alot of work in .net using c#. I Was wanting to move over to linux and start development and i think the nghost project looks tasty. What kind of tools and programming languages to i need to begin doing this? I like the gui working environment of .net and was looking for something in linux.

    I work with .NET for my real job. You can still code for Linux in C# and get a lot of productivity. I'm working on a network manager dbus plugin for nGhost written in c# using monodevelop. I like monodevelop a lot. It's not as fancy as VS2008, but it does a lot of the same things well, and some things even better.

    nGhost is written almost completely in c++. But addons can be in any language a developer see's most productive. For c++ you can either use monodevelop or kdevelop.

    If you do feel like writing anything for nGhost using c#, let me know, I've spent a lot of time creating client assemblies that will help you out a lot.

    Eclipse is a really nice IDE for linux, I use it when developing in c++ but it's available for alot of other languages too. If you decide to go the c# route; which I'm a fan of since you can get alot done fast, monodevelop is nice as kev has said.

    I have an idea for a completly embedded web interface. Imagine you car in your drive way and being on your home pc and doing things like syncing music, changing skins and config files, battery monitoring, gps tracking, and much more. It would be like a web interface to control and update without having to mess with your pc in your car. If you have internet where you car is parked the options are limitless.

    I'm interested to know more details. There is great need for such an application. How do you plan on designing it?

    BTW, how do you like your cobalt SS? pretty fun eh? I want to get my wife one (and secretly steal it from time to time...)

    Yea the SS is my baby. I plan on running a small apache web server on my car pc that can be accessed by any computer through the web whenever my car has internet access. Im working on getting nghost running on my machiene along with eclipse with the C++ development evironment. When i get everything running i will let you know about the details. I read on the nghost web site about a web interface.

    This is off topic but i have been looking at the Ubuntu Mobile and it looks awesome. If i get time tonight im going to install it and test it out. Have you tried to implement any of the features? Ill keep you posted.

    nGhost1 did have a web interface for configuration settings. nG2 does not. I like your idea, there definitely needs to be a way to sync media and configure stuff from your desktop. We've discusses some ways to do this, but haven't had time/resources to implement anything.

    How will you get around firewalls? At my home this is no problem cuz my router can forward whatever port I want to my carpc. but at work, I don't have control of the firewall there .

    Ubuntu mobile and linuxICE share many things in common (matchbox window manager), interface guidlines, etc. However, the main difference will be the interface. nGhost and icepanel make up the LinuxICE interface while ubuntu uses hildon.

    As for the firewalls, for now i want to get it up and running for use in my driveway then expand from there. Start small then work up. I got Ububtu Mobile going and i liked it but i wasn't impresses. I like the status bar at the top with the time, bluetooth logo, and wifi info. The interface is clean but i can see where they are trying to go with it. Why have you all decided to step away from hildon? Support is amazing. Just a few thoughts. I need to study but im having too much fun.

    Linux Development is designed by keeping security in mind. Virus attacks are considerably very low in Linux operated system.Linux involves an easy installation process, known as graphical installation process, which automatically configures the system.Linux has a great pool of open source software.
