SMS are stored in ~/.local/share/history-service/history.sqlite which you can edit with the sqlite3 tool. I would avoid manipulating this database directly though, as it is not documented whether manipulating this file directly will cause it to lose sync with state that might be stored elsewhere.

adb shows a device only when it knows the vendor of the device. The vendor of the bq E4.5 seems not known by default. To change that edit or create the file ~/.android/adb_usb.ini and add the following line 0x2a47 That is the vendor id of the bq E4.5. Restart the adb server after you edited the file sudo adb kill-server; sudo adb start-server You ...

Yes, if you use Skype4Py. I've created a simple callto.py script based on examples/callfriend.py from Skype4Py. It takes a phone number or a friend name from the skype roster as an argument. It's only working if skype is already launched. Skype will ask you if you want to give API permission to Skype4Py. Code follows: #!python # ...

There is and it's called Asterisk. It's a PBX. If it's your first time using and configuring asterisk, I would HIGHLY recommend using Trixbox instead of Ubuntu until you get used to it (it can be a pain to set up). Once you're comfortable, then go back and get a juju script built for it or something ;) It is available in software center as well, just ...

Since you mentioned RJ11 this likely means you have a standard modem in your computer, this usually means that you need a softphone sometimes called a telephony application that uses the modem to accept and initiate calls using PSTN. If you can find any such application for Ubuntu that you can install and run properly, what you ask may work, I do not know ...

No it won't. Jailbrocken iDevice are only just having root access the device. The bootloader to these devices are locked and they will only boot iOS. And also the android phones whose bootloader are locked can't install it.

I know that some bluetooth devices will not connect with a phone I used to have. There seems to be some incompatibilities between different BT devices, and there is not much that could be done there. So far, Bluetooth was more trouble that it was worth it. I also had issues with such keyboards that would always disconnect. I know this is not the answer you ...

SIP Clients These all are SIP clients which means they all can be used to call each other and they just need a SIP address (like your mobile number) .

Ekiga (available in the software center) ...

Ubuntu Phone is not a specific phone, but an operating system to be run on phones. Right now, in development, the official reference models are Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. You'll be able to install Ubuntu Phone on either of those, but keep in mind it's not meant to be ready for the public yet – and it will require you to unlock the phone. As of now, there ...

To record Skype calls, especially if you're using Ubuntu 12.04, I recommend Skype Call Recorder. (Currently the PPA that provides it easily on Ubuntu hasn't been updated to provide builds for Ubuntu releases past 12.04 LTS, but that's not a problem if you're using 12.04.) To install Skype Call Recorder on Ubuntu, the easiest way is probably to use this PPA. ...

You mentioned having played Pathwind; did you by any chance mute the sound in Pathwind? There's a known bug whereby muting the sound in Pathwind mutes the sound for the rest of the system as well -- this can be fixed by just relaunching Pathwind and unmuting the sound.

Click the ?123 button to get the numeric keys and symbols. Now a 1/2 button appears. Look at the minus-key. When clicking the 1/2 button, the minus-key becomes an underscore-key:

Unless phones move away from the ARM processor architecture and are equipped with HDMI or VGA outputs, we will always have separate apps and OSes for them. The reason many apps aren't available for phones is because developers don't want the extra work of compiling their apps for ARM. Normal Ubuntu can't be installed on phones because of how they work. If ...

Ubuntu touch does not allow USB interaction as long as the phone screen is locked. Even if it is only locked by slide, this can block the interaction. I also made sure my screen doesn't lock after idleness, so this locking doesn't happen halfway through a transfer.

While USB Debugging option is disabled Samsung Galaxy SII is working as a MTP device and in this case Ubuntu can not see files on the phone. When I enable USB debugging option and connect my phone with USB cable Ubuntu recognise my phone as USB mass storage device and I can access my files.

I would advise you to download the firmware of Samsung Galaxy Europa Gingerbread from Sammobile , then install Heimdall to install the firmware onto your device. But make sure your phone is unlocked before doing so.

Ubuntu Touch, and desktop Unity starting in 14.04, will run on top of the new Mir display server. Part of the Mir offering will be XMir, an X server running as a Mir client. This will allow legacy/X11 apps to run on top of Mir without any effort. However, even if this does allow them to run on Ubuntu Touch, most legacy/X11 applications are not designed ...
