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 ...

I know about detecting the system using simple ping command: TTL 64 Linux/BSD 128 Windows 255 UNIX You can change the default TTL, but it is usually the default one. Or try the nmap: nmap -O But you have to study these command (sources) to find the answer you need.

Just adding my 2 cents because I was also struggling with this and my solution was really weird. Fresh install of ubuntu 14.04.2 64-bit with all updates installed. Connected phone with usb 2.0 port: no access (I tried 2 different usb 2.0 ports) Connected phone with usb 2.0 port and used gMTP (ubuntu software center): access Connected phone with usb 3.0 ...

The colored circles on the outer ring are simply representative of how much activity you performed of the currently displayed metric, for the current and past days. If you double-tap the center of the large circle, it will switch to a different metric type (calls made, calls received, messages sent, messages received, etc…) and the outer circles will also ...

This is not working on an Aquaris E 4.5: there you must leave the sudo and the database=Personal. So the command is syncevolution --export /home/phablet/Documents/utcontacts.vcf backend=evolution-contacts

Full convergence is not yet implemented, and even when it is, many things still will not be entirely feasible on commodity phone hardware, simply due to available resources. When that convergence story is complete, it may be possible to install the SDK directly on the phone, but depending on the hardware you have, it may not actually be feasible to use it; ...

Apps cannot prevent the screen from locking. The only way to keep the screen from locking, is for the user to go into System Settings and change the screen lock timeout to Never.

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 ...

A quick and dirty way is just to pass it the desktop file of an unconfined application (that application can't be running though), e.g. webapp-container http://www.ubuntu.com --desktop_file_hint=/usr/share/applications/webbrowser-app.desktop

Try recovery with wipe/data factory reset option during boot before flashing device from image. I had to do this on same new phone :-(

Unless you have very specific needs, you could just use gMTP (it's in the repositories). It might come in handy to zip files/folders before transfer (ubuntu touch is able to unzip).

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.

The changelog is here: http://people.canonical.com/~ogra/touch-image-stats/ Though this is created by a script and is only interesting if you know what you are searching (hoping) for.

Could be that you are not authenticated to UbuntuOne site. Are you able to install apps from Ubuntu store? Have you changed your UbuntuOne password lately?

Sometimes happens. A possible solution is removing and readding your Ubuntu One account. To do that, please go to System settings -> Accounts, select your Ubuntu One account, click on Remove account and then readd it. After that, try again to download updates.

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.

Maybe you have some notifications waiting. The first indicator (in the left) in the upper side of the screen is an envelope. If you see it green, then you have notifications that you can clear (page 36 of the manual) and then, the blue LED will disappear. If the envelope is grey, you will find it empty and there will be another reason.

I have a 32gb SD card in my bq E4.5. But on the memory page you can only see the internal memory of the phone. I can also see the default folders on my memory card. If all these things are working on your phone as shown here you have no problem and everything works as intended. If you want to know the size of your SD card you can open your terminal (needs ...

No, Google Chrome (nor Chromium or Firefox) is not supported on the phone image. Use of apt-get to install applications is also not supported on the phone image. However, the standard web browser on the phone image (webbrowser-app) is based on the Blink engine which is used in Chrome/Chromium.

There should be no difference in the permissions for those files. How did you get them on the phone? Are you copying them in Nautilus over the MTP connection? What is the exact error? You can check the file permissions and ownership in a terminal window using adb shell or phablet-shell from your PC over the USB connection, or using terminal-app on the phone ...

You can use the Terminal or File Manager to copy your files. Both can be found on "Ubuntu Store". There is currently no UI to add new ringtones, and the preinstalled ones are stored in a read-only location. Once you are aware of the implications, you can try to set your phone in read-write mode Further information can be found here.

After all kind of searching the web for solutions I found out that my carrier (Telekom Romania) is transmitting 3G over the network of another carrier that was bought by the company some time ago. It appears that their infrastructure is based on a kind of roaming between the 2G and 3G services and will only work on Ubuntu phones if you enable both 3G ...
