Found this thread in their forums. Doesn't sound as is they are very close to an upgrading path.

I installed the latest version as a guest but alas, it's still using 18.04. But it's only been a day since the point release went out.

That would have been interesting. Sorry Jason, I sent the distro to its reward in distro heaven today. Ah well.

The download for Neon is dated yesterday. So that's probably the 20.04 version. Let us know if you receive a prompt to upgrade if you still have it.

Sounds good. Should be fun to learn more about it.

General Discussion / Re: ESP32-CAM camera module board, $12 CDN - hobby project

Doing this project would be mostly for the learning experience.  I do have an arduino uno board and therefore I am somewhat familiar with the Arduino programming.
I would find it interesting to gain the experience of flashing the Arduino cam program to the ESP-CAM board, using the FTDI interface board.

Once I get the ESP-Cam working, I could use it as a surveillance camera or even as a back-up camera for the car. :-)

It looks like the base will be upgraded soon. According to this posting, it's normally upgraded after the first point release for Ubuntu (i.e. 20.04.1) which was just released. You should get a notification to upgrade soon if you haven't already (assuming it's still on your computer).

Interesting. What do you plan on doing with it? Or is it just to learn with?

General Discussion / ESP32-CAM camera module board, $12 CDN - hobby project
« Last post by ssfc72 on Yesterday at 05:06:57 am »
For the electronics/Arduino enthusiasts , this is a very interesting project.  It is a 2 MP camera on a tiny board that will display a video feed ( just like a web cam), to your computer or cell phone on your local wifi.
The camera board also has wifi and Bluetooth built in.
You need to also purchase another small board, about $5, to program the camera board, using the arduino code, or if you had an Arduino board, you can use that for programming.

or

I think I will be giving this a try. The price of the components, is in my price range. :-)

So... on another evil Win10 machine, without my special password enhanced Kubuntu, I copied Kubuntu from my  laptop via lan and placed it securely into Documents on the basement Win10. Opened VMWare on the basement Win10 and ran the clone of the gifted guest upstairs and now I am writing as Buster to PLUG!

Surprisingly, sometimes things work.
