Friday, October 07, 2011 Now, the Supreme Court of India has directed all the courts across the nation to switch over to Ubuntu 10.04. The apex court has also given all the courts customised Ubuntu Linux DVD for installation.

Over 17,000 courts across the country were using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 for the last four years. The e-committee of the Supreme Court Of India has issued a circular for 'Guidelines for Roll-out and Installation of Ubuntu Linux for Indian Judiciary' for the purpose. The circular talks about the replication and installation of the Ubuntu Linux operating system.

The circular says that an acknowledgment of Installation & Receipt of Ubuntu Linux OS DVD be given by the judicial officers in the prescribed form.

A detailed video tutorial and a PDF file containing 25 salient features of Ubuntu Linux OS DVD have also been created and uploaded on the Supreme Court website. The circular asks all the system officers and system assistants working under the eCourts project be instructed to download and watch the video and understand the contents of the PDF file, so that they can enable themselves to provide support to the judicial officers and courts for installation and use of Ubuntu Linux OS in laptops and desktops.

It instructs immediate circulation of 'Ubuntu Installation & Features Video' to all the judicial officers so that they can understand the same before DVD reaches them. “The Ubuntu Linux operating system can be installed by the judicial officer on his own also as the installation process is very easy, intuitive and self-explanatory. In fact, it shall be a welcome change and a desired enablement on the part of the judicial officers if they become self-dependent in this aspect also. It is only required to be instructed to all the judicial officers that if they are installing the Ubuntu Linux in their laptops by themselves, they should first download and watch the video available on the Supreme Court of India's website. They must then take the backup of their data. Only then, they should proceed with the installation,” mentions the circular.

Features Of Ubuntu Linux OS DVD

Send and receive fax, 15 Indian languages and 48 layouts, deleted/lost data recovery, live (trial) DVD, talking dictionary (Eng-Hindi-Urdu), dual booting OS, English text to speech, recovery DVD for Windows/Linux, multimedia (audio-video) playback, printers/scanners drivers, Web camera, mail/chat/social networking client, mobile broadband and 3G, PDF tools, installable on a pen-drive (4GB), network and printer sharing, Bluetooth-enabled, thin client support, digital signature, backup software, typing tutor for English typing, screen recorder, personal accounting, Windows Emulator (Wine), video tutorials and user guides, Virtual OS Support (VirtualBox).

Free SMS Channel for Ubuntu-Linux tips

A free SMS Channel has also been created to increase the awareness about the features and functionalities of Ubuntu Linux OS amongst the judicial officers, technical staff and the members of the court staff. A circular released in this regard says that it is a free Google SMS channel called Ubuntu-Linux. The objective is to send free regular SMS of Ubuntu-Linux tips, tricks and information.

The circular says, “This channel can be subscribed by sending the first subscription SMS to Google mobile no. 9870807070. The delivery of regular SMS to the subscriber's mobile no. is absolutely free. To subscribe to the Ubuntu-Linux SMS channel, following SMS (in small or capital letters) is required to be sent to 9870807070: 'ON UBUNTU-LINUX'.

This channel can also be subscribed through the Internet.
