Zeitgeist datasources 0.8 released (Natty Narwhal PPA)
The Zeitgeist project is growing every day, and, if in the last weeks we saw the launching of "Activity Log Manager" (a blacklist GUI), just now the Zeitgeist PPA has been updated with the first iteration (on Natty) of Zeitgeist datasources.
So, what are datasources?
Zeitgeist tracks your activities, events, etc in a general way.
Zeitgeist datasources are specialized plugins/addons/extensions that log particular apps (for instance, zeitgeist-datasource-totem tracks only media files played with totem), meaning, basically, all these datasources are strengthened Zeitgeist actions but only in one direction.
How do we install Zeitgeist datasources 0.8?
Add the following PPA (Natty)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zeitgeist/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
then, to actually install the datasources, go to Ubuntu Software Center and install one by one the datasources that you are interested in (choose from Eye of Gnome, Geany, Gedit, Emacs, Rhythmbox, Tomboy, Totem, Vim, Xchat, Bazaar).
It seems that, at the moment, not all of them are fully functional (like for instance Geany's and Tomboy's).
How do we activate them?
Eye of Gnome go to Edit-->Preferences-->Plugins-->check "Zeitgeist"
Gedit go to Edit-->Preferences-->Plugins-->check "Zeitgeist"
