Jolicloud 2 Housewarming Party

by Jolicloud Team

December 12th, 2013

After months of hard work, we are ready to give our existing users early access to Jolicloud 2 and the awesome new features we have prepared for you.

Jolicloud 2 lives entirely in the browser. It’s been designed mainly for Chrome and Chromebook users, but it should also work with other modern browsers.

If you have used one of our previous products, you should be familiar with the interface. We have kept all the best parts like the Joli OS desktop and the Jolidrive layout, but we have reorganized everything under two roofs.

Home and Drive

Jolicloud has now two sections: Home which gathers all your content in one place, and Drive which unifies all your online storage.
You can switch between Home and Drive at any time, and both services have been designed to work well together.

If you are still using the Jolicloud app launcher, no worries: it’s now under the Drive section. You can make it appear or disappear in the settings.

What’s New: Don’t miss out on what’s happening

With all the services that we follow out there, it’s hard to keep track of all the things that matter. With What’s New, everything is in one place, organized in categories.

Library: Keep the important stuff in one place

Library is your time machine that keeps an organized history of all the things you’ve liked across the Internet. Anything you’ve liked elsewhere will automagically appear there. And when you like something in Jolicloud, it automatically adds it to your Library and sends a like to the original service.

Feedly: Bring the news!

Because news is an important part of our cloud life, we have worked with Feedly to bring you one of the simplest RSS experiences available. And we’ve fully integrated it with other cloud services.

Google Reader users, Jolicloud is now officially your new Home!

Drive: All your online storages

jolicloud-2-drive

Our storage interface is one of the best available in a browser. With Drive, you can manage all your storage services online in one place. And you can do much more with your files than you could in the original web interface of the service: play music and video, edit text, share files and folders in one click.

Try it, you will love it!

Looks good! I was worried about what the new version would mean for my Joli OS, but so far, so good.

Clicked on the update link after logging in tonight and was surprised to see the new version of Jolicloud. This is a major change (for me anyway). Unfortunately, after the install I am unable to view my local drives. They are listed on the left, but when I click on the Hard Drive or one of the flash drives, nothing happens. There is no files and folders view of the drive.. What happened??

Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the new version – looks great!

However, how do I stop the laptop requiring a local password every time it boots up or the screen times out?

This used to exist in the account settings as “require a password on login” tickbox but I can’t find this now – advice welcome please!

Thanks loads

I am running joli os 1.2 on a Dell inspiron 1010. While I am going through the slideshows about joli 2 beta, I can’t get back to my desktop. I am stuck in the slideshows. I can’t see any button to quit or exit. I restart the computer, but I go back to the same slideshows again. now I can’t use the computer.
please help!

Managed to resolve my problem by logging in Jolicloud on a normal full size laptop and complete the Jolicloud 2 beta slideshow. Obviously the dell 1010 can’t display the full screen and therefore can’t click on the “continue” button at the bottom.
I logged off from the laptop and log on to my dell 1010, and I can go back to my desktop.
Sorry for the “panic”.

[...] It’s been a long time coming, but Jolicloud has finally released version 2 of its cloud-services aggregator today. To the uninitiated, Jolicloud is essentially a one-stop shop for all your web activity, be it Instagram photos, Facebook likes or Dropbox files.

Re. my above and others’ comments – as we are now so close to the year end and the point where Joli OS is no longer supported, will there be any more updates to the system for those of us who are devoted Joli OS users for our main laptop?

Thanks loads for everything so far…

Joli OS 1.2 will no longer receive any system updates.

@Cedric Thanks for that – but this is an issue affecting the login to the actual netbook. It is and always has been something accessed through “local settings” and has been raised with previous users as well.

Oh well – I know we are close to you guys ceasing all support and you made it clear there are no more updates – so there we are!

Basic Ubuntu here we come…

I learned about Joli OS on January 17, 2014. It seemed like a great idea. So I wanted to try it. During my research I learned that it is no longer supported. Is there an article about why this has happened? Could you please put a notice on your site about Joli OS not being supported? You might also disable the link to the download. I started my download before learning about the discontinuation.

Please put an explanation about how Jolicloud 2 works. It isn’t clear. From what I’m seeing it seems to be like a hub that is on the web and is accessed from a Chrome browser. This means it can be utilized from any OS. Is this right? How does this benefit me more than a fast OS on a low powered computer? Wouldn’t the speed of the machine now have more of an effect on the speed of the Jolicloud 2 than when using the Joli OS version?

I would like to purchase a used netbook and put an SSD in it to make a very portable quality device that is virus free. I was intending to buy a Chromebook before learning about Joli OS. Now that I know it has been abandoned maybe I’ll buy a Chromebook. Is Jolicloud fast on low power machines? Let me know.

Michael J.B., Jolicloud announced dropping support for Joli OS via email on November 21, 2013. Support ended December 31, 2013. And although they are no longer providing any updates for Joli OS 1.2, it still works like a champ. It’s based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS & comes with it’s own desktop launcher that is basically a full screen Chromium web browser accessing their own web app. I’ve been using it exclusively just over 3 years on a variety of low-powered machines: eMachines 10″ netbook bought in 2010, 12″ Toshiba Portege R500 & my current 13″ Toshiba Satellite U405. It works best with 2gb of RAM & some kind of dual core processor, but runs OK on 1gb too. The new Jolicloud 2 does in fact work with modern HTML 5 browsers. It works best in Chrome/Chromium, but should work in Firefox & a few others. However, I’ve found Internet Explorer support lacking, especially Windows Phone & Xbox versions. The Jolicloud Team are not real big fans of Microsoft or Windows. They’re mainly Mac users. Anyway, Jolicloud’s biggest benefit is centralizing your life in the cloud. If you use a lot of local apps & store a lot of your content locally, you might not see the benefit. But for those like myself that have went cloud-only, it’s a great service. Joli OS 1.2 was designed for these users & works best on older machines, especially those with Intel CPUs & GPUs(pre-Sandy Bridge). It originally started as a netbook-only OS before adding support for desktops & laptops. Newer machines made in the past 2 years probably won’t work, but there’s always Ubuntu 12 or 13 while using the Jolicloud Desktop Environment. Older machines are really speedy on Joli OS 1.2. Not sure if upgrading to Ubuntu 12 or 13 would be a wise move. And I’m also not sure how an older laptop with Joli OS would compare to a Chromebook. I would think that they should be comparable. Or I hope they are, since I do plan on making that plunge soon. I’ve been getting my Toshiba Satellite laptop ready to sell so I can buy a HP Chromebook 14. Hopefully that helps answers some of your questions. I think you’ll like using Joli OS. It’s definitely worth trying out before making the plunge to another Linux OS or even ChromeOS on Chromebooks. But after awhile you’ll probably find other platforms that are just as good. Good luck & have fun!

I installed jolicloud 1·2 on an older laptop. Install went fine but after i log in a video pops up with a second popup to try beta2. I try to goto beta2 and it keeps looping back to the try beta2 screen. I cannot close the video screen at all. And there is no way to close down except a hard shurdown.

Hi, I installed it for my sister and trien jolicloud 2 beta, but now I’m regretting it because it is not translated in French at all, Can i return to Jolicloud 1.2 ?

Then, the screen of the laptop is crushed but the computer is still working, so I plugged it via hdmi to a TV screen, and the resolution is not good. Is there a way that Jolicloud recognize the TV screen and adapt the resolution, or via a Gnome command line ?

Sorry for my english :(
