Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was wondering if the any applications developed with Livecode (www.runrev.com) for a Desktop Linux platform would be able to run natively on Ubuntu Mobile devices (tablets).

Livecode can generate Android apps and Desktop Linux apps... my question is in reference to Desktop Linux apps as I have several that I would like to use on a tablet.

If true then this would save me a great deal of re-coding Livecode for Android.

Probably no, because binary produced using live code is for desktop only, They do not provide option for ubuntu touch yet. Applications which run on desktop may not run on the mobile

It is possible to build for Android from LiveCode on Linux (including Ubuntu). Please see this lesson for details.

I hope this helps.
