    Canola2 Media Center - Very slick front end

    Has anyone tried this out ?
    http://www.techdrivein.com/2010/07/c...prisingly.html

    Been using it on my joggler and its very nice.. just needs a skin with a bit more of a 'car feel' and some way of using sat nav and it would be a perfect front end for use in the car!

    yeah I was looking into it for the joggler.

    Just need to integrate Navit into it or something else under wine.

    Scouse, don't know if you have already seen these but very useful;

    http://malus.exotica.org.uk/~buzz/joggler <- Mint Linux
    http://joggler.info/forum/viewtopic....7080550e042ad5 <- Ubuntu Lucid

    Both working very nice, and Canola2 is a simple PPA install away on both :)

    Not sure how skin-able Canola is though.. and taking inspriation from another thread I saw I guess it would be possible to use two virtual desktops - one for satnav, the other for all mediabased stuff (Canola)..
