In order to install Ubuntu OS on any Android device you will need to have an unlocked/unlockable bootloader. The Amazon Fire phone does not offer an unlockable bootloader and at this time, the development community hasn't found a bootloader unlock exploit. So in short, there is not, at this time any way to flash Ubuntu OS to your device. Amazon does not ...

As for Telegram, it creates a directory in /userdata/user-data/phablet/.config/com.ubuntu.telegram/ named with the phone number of the other contact. It's also interesting to know that even regular chats that are not stored on the device can be found in the cache in /home/phablet/.cache/com.ubuntu.telegram/ in a directory with the user's phone number and ...

Today scope is mean to be "personal information manager". You can select (in options) displaying upcoming events (calendar), favorite contacts, upcoming tasks (notes) recent msg, calls and many more (etc). It would not be fair to compare this to Thunderbird or Outlook yet, but it's so far ubuntu's best way of managing daily personal information.

I can suggest only one solution. If it does not work, then it is impossible to use this Ralink dongle with Ubuntu. Run in terminal: sudo modprobe rt2800usb nohwcrypt=1 Then unplug and plug in the dongle again. If this helps, then get it permanent. echo "options rt2800usb nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rt2800usb.conf

There's actually an app called"feedback" that you can download from the store. BQ always come back to me with feedback after I post something there. In addition, you can also email bq directly at support.ubuntu.en@bq.com

I think it still ext4, even I can't find any official link of the supported file system or what is the default file system used. But as workaround you can still use some commands like mount, df -h -T , blkid which shows you the filesystem used in your system. So give it a try and check your card FS

The phone does track the major 6 month releases, but in addition there are updates planned basically every 4 to 6 weeks. These updates provide both bug fixes and new features. The Ubuntu community makes the updates and the manufacturers are involved in the validation process. The length of time a particular phone receives updates will likely vary based on ...

It pretty clearly sounds like a bug. I guess you already installed all available updates. I personally cannot recreate it. On this page, you will find links to the relevant launchpad sites: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Avengers to report the bug.

Thanks for all the answers. After five reboots, I got it working by swiping the arrow button towards the answer button. Apologies for the seemingly silly question, but I have had the phone since April and I haven't taken a call on it until I started using it as my main phone the other day. Kind regards, Rog.

Roger, it sounds like you know how to answer the call but it's not working for you. This happened me a few times before the update. I'd get a call and be swiping like a mad man but nothing happened... touch screen would work with everything else just not answering calls. This ended when I got the most recent update, maybe this could help you?

With the help of the "Ubuntu phone" community on Launchpad (see here), I was able to set my system proxy settings via the 'gsettings set' command (identically to the working settings on my Ubuntu 14.04 desktop systems): gsettings set org.gnome.system.proxy use-same-proxy false gsettings set org.gnome.system.proxy mode "'manual'" gsettings set ...

When you receive a call and want to take it, the standard way is to move the white “button" with the 2 arrows from its middle position towards the green phone. If you want to close it, you move it towards the red phone.

you can answer an incoming call by wiping the "button" (the grey rectangle with "< >" on it) to the right side. Or decline the call by wiping the rectangle in the other direction towards the red icon. Answers this your question? Best wishes, Matthias

Please note that standalone GPS positioning is quite slow in acquiring a fix. That is, without any additional help, the time from requesting a position until the first actual fix is delivered may very well take ~20 minutes depending on satellite visibility. That being said, we have enabled multiple ways of speeding up location fixes. All of ...

This bug might be already corrected, since I was able to sync manually the calendar (the app made by ubuntu core developpers which works with the scope) whit my google calendar. It was finally done last night, hope it helps.

Does not seem to have an app for it, but can be done: Connect your device via USB, enable Developer Mode in: "System-Settings->About This Phone->Developer Mode" Run (from your PC, making sure to have the phone screen unlocked, else adb will refuse to let you in): adb shell android-gadget-service enable rndis This will enable tethering. It will also disable ...

If you did not run any update or anything the only explanation I could think of is that you accidentally clicked on the star in the upper-right corner of those scopes and made them "disappear". In order to re-enable just pull the menu from the bottom to Manage your scopes. You will find all scopes you currently use (Home) as well as all scopes installed ...
