Recently i have written blog about assembling Ubuntu Orange Matchbox (Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow) & Demonstration of Snappy Ubuntu Core with it.

Now with Make-Me-Glow LP Project, we have built an application for controlling PiGlow from Ubuntu Phone. The PiGlow is a small add on board for the Raspberry Pi that provides 18 individually controllable LEDs. Recently Victor Tuson Palau has released glowapi for Snappy Ubuntu Core, which will allow us to control PiGlow over HTTP Protocol.

We decided to build quick Ubuntu Phone application to control  PiGlow during Ubuntu Hackathon India using glowapi for Snappy Ubuntu Core. As a result of this, we came with Make-Me-Glow LP Project. Big Thanks


What It Does:

It will allow you to control any LED of PiGlow from Ubuntu Phone. You have to  download “Make Me Glow” application from Ubuntu Phone Store. For example, if you want to On/Off Orange LED on Leg 1 with specific Intensity on PiGlow, Make Me Glow UI will allow you to do the same. Just make sure that you have to enter correct IP address of your Ubuntu Orange Matchbox (Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow). We are assuming that you have already installed  glowapi for Snappy Ubuntu Core on your  Ubuntu Orange Matchbox (Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow)

Make Me Glow Installation from Ubuntu Store @ Ubuntu Phone Launch Make Me Glow Launch Make Me Glow Give you input to control PiGlow LEDs Give you input to control PiGlow LEDs Give you input to control PiGlow LEDs

How It Does:

As i said erlier, we are using glowapi for Snappy Ubuntu Core which can operate PiGlow according to HTTP Protocol POST request.  We are issuing POST request over HTTP Protocol from Ubuntu Phone Application – Make Me Glow as per user configuration and PiGlow does operate accordingly. We have written simple QML function for the same, which request URL using POST over HTTP  according to user input. It is very very easy to develop Ubuntu Phone Application using Ubuntu SDK. Big Thanks to XiaoGuo Liu, without it would not be possible to execute this project.

function request(url) {
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();‘POST’, url, true);

Future Roadmap:

We are working on few animations. In fact  i have already made the proof of concept using bash script, like Fan &  FadeOut animation with bash scripting. If you want to contribute for the same please visit Make-Me-Glow LP Project.


Goal behind this demonstration is to defined immense possibility of Snappy Ubuntu Core to control devices remotely, within Ubuntu Ecosystem. If you are planning to dive in to IOT based solutions, Snappy Ubuntu Core is great start for you. After this demonstration, I am planning to control my Home Lights connected to device running Snappy Ubuntu Core and controlling the same through Ubuntu Phone.  Stay tuned…

In this edition i will demonstrate how to assemble your own Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow. As shown below.

Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow.

Basically, at the end of this blog i will demonstrate how to assemble your own Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow. Flash it with latest Snappy Ubuntu Core, which has support for  Raspberry Pi 2’s GPIO & I2C. I will also managing Snap packages from Ubuntu Phone Browser & Snappy Scope (Beta). I will also share tips & tricks to enable WiFi on Snappy Ubuntu Core. At the end, i will demonstrate Snappy Ubuntu Core + Raspberry Pi 2 + PiGLow in action. PiGlow will blink LEDs, as per the CPU Resource Utilization by  Snappy Ubuntu Core.

We have divided this post in four different part:

  • Make In India: Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow
  • Install Snappy Ubuntu Core @ Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow
  • Tips & Tricks to enable WiFi @ Snappy Ubuntu Core
  • CPU Resource Utilization Demonstration @Snappy Ubuntu Core

Make In India: Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow:

Here are the list of ingredients which i have used to cook my own Ubuntu Orange Matchbox. I have also share the link from where you can procure those stuffs in India.

  1. Raspberry Pi 2 with USB WiFi Dongle  & 5V, 2A USB Power Adapter
  2. Tangerine Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2
  3. PiGlow, It is small add on for Raspbeery Pi that provides 18 Individually controllable LEDs.
  4. Mixed Ubuntu Stickers







Assemble Raspberry Pi 2 with Tangerine Pibow.  Remove white laminate plastic sheet of closing cover of Tangerine Pibow.  This actions will give you transparent Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2.


Now, it’s time to give Ubuntu Branding. Just stick transparent Ubuntu Logo sticker on  transparent Pibow closing cover. You can also install PiGlow before closing the cover.  If you know any laser engraving service provider for metal / plastic, consult them and get your Ubuntu Branding engraving on transparent Pibow closing cover. But my trick will give you Ubuntu Orange Logo 😉


Final Version:


Install Snappy Ubuntu Core @ Ubuntu Orange Matchbox: Ubuntu Branded Pibow for Raspberry Pi 2 & PiGlow:

Recently, Snappy Ubuntu Core get latest updated for Raspberry Pi 2, which has latest updates & upgrades. Please follow this page Getting Started with Snappy Ubuntu Core for Raspberry Pi 2. It is having latest info and procedure to play with Snappy Ubuntu Core @ Raspberry Pi 2. You can even build your own image.

Here is sort summary to do the same. Get 4 Gb Class 10 micro SDHC Card. Format it and flash it with latest Snappy Ubuntu Core image.

# Note: replace /dev/sdX with the device name of your SD card (e.g. /dev/mmcblk0, /dev/sdg1 ...)
xzcat ubuntu-15.04-snappy-armhf-rpi2.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdX bs=32M

Now, boot your Ubuntu Orange Matchbox with Snappy Ubuntu Core. Default Username / Password is ubuntu / ubuntu. You can manage Snappy Ubuntu Core web store through Webdm, by pointing your browser to Ubuntu Orange Matchbox IP:4200 or webdm.local. Make sure that you are connected to LAN.

Tips & Tricks to enable WiFi @ Snappy Ubuntu Core:

Snappy Ubuntu Core has inbuilt support for Ethernet port, So, connecting your Raspberry Pi 2 to LAN will get LAN IP from Router. Since, this is headless device, you can always do SSH from your host machine if you do not want to connect it with separate monitor.

It does not have support for WiFi. Here are the steps to enable WiFi and add support for USB wi-fi adapter, having Ralink RA5370 chipset. I got this with my Raspberry Pi 2 kit, please check chipset for your USB wi-fi Adapter, you may need different firmware.

Please follow this solution @ Enable WiFi with Snappy Ubuntu Core. You may need to get below package instead of  – wpasupplicant_0.7.3-6ubuntu2.3_armhf.deb

wget -c

I would also prefer to install nano for better modification of WiFi SSID configuration in future. Get it from here.


CPU Resource Utilization Demonstration @ Snappy Ubuntu Core:

Now, it’s time to demonstrate CPU Resource Utilization through PiGlow.  It is small add on for Raspbeery Pi that provides 18 Individually controllable LEDs. We will feed CPU Resource Utilization such a way that it will glow more when we have more CPU Resource Utilization. As i said erlier, recently we got GPIO & I2C support on Snappy Ubuntu Core, it is possible to do the same. And we have snap package available from the same, called PiGlow Top.

Access your Snappy Ubuntu Core from WebDM or CLI through SSH and install PiGlow Top snap available from Snappy Ubuntu Core Web Store. After installation, we need to grant access to I2C hardware, do the same over SSH.

sudo snappy hw-assign piglowtop.kyrofa /dev/i2c-1

Now it’s time for the demonstration, grab your Ubuntu Phone, access the Snappy Ubuntu Core Webdm from your Ubuntu Phone Browser, Do some activity to increase CPU Utilization, for example Install / Remove any snap from Snappy Ubuntu Core Web Store. I have prepared small video Demonstration for your reference.

Have you ever think of baking your own cloud within  5 Minutes? Have you ever think of Elastic Compute (Nova-Compute) within 5 Minutes?  Have you ever think of Elastic Storage (Nova-Volumes) within 5 minutes? Have you ever think of your hands on Open Stack Dash Board (Horizon) within 5 Minutes? Now you should think of it. With release of Ubuntu 12.04, It’s time for Ubuntu Cloud Live 12.04.  Ubuntu / Canonical  has released Ubuntu Cloud Live 12.04, Hybrid Image, Burn on your DVD , CD or USB Stick, you can say Cloud On DVD, Cloud on Stick, Yes, it’s as easy as you reading this.

Ubuntu Cloud Live is a live CD/USB image that allows you to get a glimpse of Ubuntu Cloud Infrastructure. Project’s web site is located at Launchpad – Procedure is very simple; download an image, burn it on CD or dd it on the USB key and boot of that device. System will boot in Unity or Unity2D and present you with at Getting Started document. Notice that we do not include full Ubuntu desktop experience – we’ve removed all components that aren’t necessary for this project, to make image as small as possible.

Once you finish with Getting Started document, you’ll be able to log into the dashboard and start instances. All of this without installing anything on your computer! For the purpose of demo, we’ve provided a small CirrOS image which you can run and log in to. Since everything is running in RAM, you will have better experience if your system has 4 or more gigabytes of memory. 2GB is enough to get system booted, but you won’t be able to do much more after that.

For a little extra, we’ve configured Ubuntu Cloud Live with support for Nova Volume. All you have to do is plug in additional disk, create a PV volume on it (pvcreate /dev/xyz), create nova-volumes VG (vgcreate nova-volumes /dev/xyz) and restart nova volume (service nova-volume restart).

Image is built with live-build and the source is available on Launchpad. Build process pulls in one package that’s also available on Launchpad. Procedure for building your own Cloud Live is very simple:

  1. Install Ubuntu 12.04, 64bit
  2. Install live-build package
  3. Create working directory – mkdir ~/cloud-live ; cd ~/cloud-live
  4. Branch bzr code – bzr branch lp:cloud-live config
  5. [OPTIONAL] Customize config/* files
  6. Build an image – sudo lb build
  7. Burn or dd resulting image – binary-hybrid.iso

Or, if you just want default, official, Ubuntu Cloud Live image, go to and grab it!


Update / Observation:

I have found that, since Red Hat came up with Red Hat OpenStack Administration (CL210), lot of students in India/ My City are struggling to see working OpenStack Demonstration, and even for the they enrolling to this course. Even trying hard with Fedora and spending whole day. So, i am posting this article  for students to create Open Stack Based Cloud within 5 Minutes, for the demonstration and understanding of Openstack & Cloud Computing.

Time to make seprate Ubuntu Cotton bags with T-shirts.

Final Goodies: Notepad, Pens, sticker, Products Sheets, Mavercik T-Shirts and Ubuntu Cotton Bags


Finally three containers with all goodies, according to their t-shirts size @ 2:30 PM, 26th January, 2011

Registration Counter @ 7:00 PM, 26th January, 2011

Agenda @ 9:10 PM, 26th January, 2011

UDD Presentation Hall @ 11:00 PM, 26th January, 2011

UDD Demonstration Room @ 3:00 AM 27 January, 2011

It was very interesting and busy day for all, packing bags to preparing demo room, shaping final presentations. We were very excited to see all Ubuntuers on UDD. And, OMG!!! that dream came true. Here is a picture taken 15 minutes before the UDD started. And, I believe Picture Speaks Louder Then The Words, OMG!!! It is!


Fronte-Right-Corner: A picture taken 15 minutes before the UDD started.


REAR-Right-Corner: A picture taken 15 minutes before the UDD started.


Though,  i was busy @ UDD Demonstration Counter, organized by Canonical and OEMs and LOEMs, showing their devices with Ubuntu, so i would not write much about UDD Presentation, later in this blog i will cover UDD Presentation source and community blog, covering whole UDD Presentation  part.  Again coming back to demo part, We demoed Wipro Machines (Netbook, Notebook, Tablet, Desktops), Lenovo All-In-One M90Z with Ubuntu 10.10, Dell Zino and Dell Latitude Netbook with Ubuntu Light. Most of the attendees were interested in getting list of Machine pre-installed with Ubuntu and available in Indian market. And that was one of the common need of all. And we surprised by seeing huge demand for that. In past, i have covered in my blog with picture of some LOEM brand with Ubuntu showcasing in CROMA. I got huge demand from attendees to generate and promote list of LOEMs and OEMs shipping machines with Pre-installed Ubuntu in Indian Consumer / Retail Market. We are already doing this for enterprise and corporates. I am sure i will cover that list in future blog. We had given 1 hour for UDD Demonstration Counter,  combined with UDD Break in UDD Agenda.  But personally,  i was much more  busy during the day  for demonstration 😉 Here are few pictures from Demonstration Counter.

UDD Demonstartion Room @ 1:00 PM, 27th January, 2011

UDD Demonstration Counter @ 3:00 PM, 27th January, 2011

Overall it was amazing event. During the day, i had great meeting with Nigel Babu and Sreekanth. Nigel also covered detailed report of UDD. Sreekanth had given nice demo on preparing and running customized Ubuntu AMI on Amazon EC2 Cloud Services. We had given separate counter for community. Thanks a lot Sreekanth.

Finally, Closing keynote  by Prakash thanking  all UDD attendees and Canonical Employee for making UDD successful. Here is a snip from Nigel’s Blog Post.

Closing keynote by Prakash and Thanks to all UDD attendees and Canonical Employee for making UDD successful.

Though, We have finished the UDD, but still we are hearing from attendees. Personally, i got lot of e-Mails from attendees.  There was common request to do it again. And, of-course i will update you more in future. Here few words from one of e-Mail, i received. Personal thanks to Mr. Girish

Dear Hardik,
It was a great experience at Leela palace in Bangalore on Ubuntu Developer Day.
I had very good opportunity to meet many people to from open source.
Please keep on organising such events in India.

My Canonical colleagues also got the similar kind of e-Mails after UDD. It was great satisfaction for us. Here is few links around the web covering UDD, bit commercially, but that is not offensive :).

To going at more commercial part, there was very nice coverage by Beyond Beat, Evening new paper.

I like the title most, i will close this blog with that one | UBUNTU STORY: STAFF OF TWO, LAKHS OF USERS | Big thanks to strong Ubuntu Community and Canonical. Now? Let’s make it billion….

I have seen lot of buzz around that, registration has been closed for Ubuntu Developer Day, Bangalore, Jan 27, 2011! Yes it’s very true. We are very sorry to say that we have closed registration for Ubuntu Developer Day, Bangalore, Jan 27, 2011, due to being hugely oversubscribed. We did this two days ago, when we were 10 days away from event. It gives me two kind of feeling (:) – :(). But, i believe it has created huge hope and fundamentals for Ubuntu and proved it’s position before the event. This is just beginning….

I am personally sorry for those, who have missed the registration. See you all, who have registered and planned to attend UDD :).

I have to test  Pre-released Netbook with Ubuntu Netbook Remix (9.04), Now it’s known as Ubuntu Netbook Edition, that’s different story. So in hurry i started my download in Firefox. It was fine for me. But suddenly my friend called me to go for 3 Idiots, So i opened to book the ticket, but found very slow speed due to UNR download.  So i stopped it, booked ticket for 3 idiots, Bingo!!!

But, i have to also resume my old UNR download. Opps!!! When i pressed “Resume” button on Firefox Download Manager, It has thrown some error, i was not bothered about it, because it’s common for me. But this time i was more excited about to solve that problem. Just got the access of /bin/bash in mood of some hacking / shacking ;).

Canonical and Dell delivered Ubuntu Moblin Remix Developer Edition on Dell Mini 10v and that was announced during the IDF (Intel Developer Forum).

I just got Dell Mini 10v a day before. I just downloaded the UMR (Ubuntu Moblin Remix) image from dell download section. Burn it on USB. Boot Dell Mini 10v with USB, and installation will start. This is Developer Edition so don’t expect that everything will work. Installation will erase all you previous data if you are trying on your existing machine. Dell is first OEM who ships pre-installed UMR (Ubuntu Moblin Remix). More information is available here about Installation.

Here is screen shots of UMR direct from Dell Mini 10v. Of-course i have just completed this post from UMR :)
