I had a similar problem with my Pavilion X360 so here is what I did for a work around to disable the keyboard and pad and to rotate my screen so I can use it as a tablet. This might work for you. First I created a icon. sudo vim /usr/share/applications/Keyboard-OFF.desktop [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Terminal=true Name=Tablet Mode ...

To add users via the gui : go to the System Settings (the cog icon) -> User Accounts If you want to add users via the cli: sudo adduser USERNAME --ingroup phablet If you still have problems: check the permissions of the password file: ls -l /etc/passwd they should be -rw-r--r-- and belong to root:root you can fix this with chmod to change ...

It seems there is a patch on launchpad bug 1566487 Still, I cannot apply it. Maybe I'm just being dumb. Would be grateful for help.

Yes, switching to desktop mode is possible and easy. However, installing Ubuntu Desktop Applications is not not easy. Gimp, Firefox and Libre Office are per-installed. Installing additional applications is more complicated. Firstly you need the application for the ARM CPU platform. Regular applications for Intel or AMD CPUs will not run on the tablet. ...

If time is of the essence you can try building the branch of the Wacom driver which contains those updates which have not yet made it into a release: git clone http://git.code.sf.net/p/linuxwacom/input-wacom cd input-wacom git checkout -b 4.6jiri remotes/origin/jiri/for-4.6 ./autogen.sh make sudo make install sudo modprobe -r wacom sudo modprobe wacom ...

I followed the steps on this website http://a25.co/ubuntu-phone-how-to-install-android/#fnref:3 that was already mentioned in the previous post and it worked for me. I flashed Android 5.1 on my M10 FHD Ubuntu Tablet. I found the Windows driver and flash tools on this http://www.mibqyyo.com/en-download/categorias/aquaris-m10-fhd-ubuntu-edition/ website for ...

Added to the "swiping right" you can also find a TAB key within the terminal. You have to hold the layout icon (orange area on the bottom left here: Terminal on Ubuntu Touch) and select SCR. You'll get a selection of keys with tab amongst them.

You can try updating your libwacom [1]. That may or may not be successful for a variety of reasons. If that does not work try using xsetwacom [2]. Note your buttons will most likely be numbered 1,9,8 and 3.[3] [1] http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Libwacom [2] http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Tablet_Configuration [3] ...

Edit: It says in the manual (p47) in the footer that "some apps such as GIMP, LibreOffice and Xchat-Gnome are deigned to be used in convergent mode only". In other words they will require an external keyboard and/or mouse. https://it-bqcom15-media.s3.amazonaws.com/prod/resources/manual/Aquaris_M10_Ubuntu_Edition_Complete_User_Manual-1460548936.pdf I ...

I think it's sufficient to tap on the terminal window to send a TAB.


1

You can swipe to the right on the console area and that will tab-complete. I assume it's sending a tab character.

I am used to vi as command editor but Tab-complete works fine for me in the on-screen keyboard. You have to switch to a different 'layout' as it is called in the keyboard/terminal settings. This is the white-on black ribbon above the keys and you can choose one with a TAB key by holding down the keypad symbol on the left side of the ribbbon and selecting ...

The bq M10 user manual says Firefox doesn't support a soft keyboard because it is meant for PC mode only. You need to mount the root filesystem read / write to edit those files as follows: sudo mount -o remount,rw / Flash is not for ARM and only an old version is supported for Firefox for a limited time (somewhere 2017 it will be gone) so yeah flash is ...

There is right know a problem with Ubuntu SDK IDE. It does not work under Ubuntu touch. At least I did not make it work until now. If that would work you can start developing Ubuntu apps on it.

I am able to reproduce the problem on my M10 saving a file named foo.txt in /home/phablet. I cant see it in file manager and have chmodded to 777. Moving the file to the location specified by Max Chinni causes it to show up in /home/phablet from gedit and it then opens fine.


1

I suspect that Gedit can only operate in the sandboxed environment which seems to be common to the other desktop apps, too. Try to move the vi created file under .local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine/ which seems to be the sandboxed home.

Hej, I have received the Ubuntu version, but wanted to try out the difference with Android. I have been flashing back and forth with no problems. But it seems you need to use the MediaTek Flash tool (http://spflashtool.com), and the Ubuntu image for the M10 you can get from "http://www.mibqyyo.com/en-download/". If you google for "bq has released the ...

I can confirm that on the M10 (I'm writing using it) there's a switch to enable Desktop mode even without any connected keyboard or mouse.

You can browse what is in the store using uApp Explorer. As far as "legacy" X11 desktop apps, the BQ M10 includes (as of OTA 10.1) a preview version of libertine and a container that includes LibreOffice, Gedit, Firefox, GIMP, and XChat-GNOME. There isn't a "supported" way to add your own X apps yet; I believe it is on the roadmap for OTA 11 at the end of ...

Go to bq.com and click Support >> Downloads >> Tablets >> Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition. Then choose your preferred language in the select box provided and there you go. I found the full manual here: https://it-bqcom15-media.s3.amazonaws.com/prod/resources/manual/Aquaris_M10_Ubuntu_Edition_Complete_User_Manual-1460548936.pdf Hope, that helps.

I got my Aquaris M10 today as well and figured our how to start the shell: slide in the Launcher bar by swipe in from the left and click the big orange icon slide in "Manage" by swipe in from the bottom click on Apps and there you'll find the "Terminal" To make Terminal icon sticky in Launcher bar, tap and hold Terminal icon until a sub menu opens and ...

Solved! Probably not the best way to make it work, but for me it did the job. Try it at your own risk: Resize Windows partition - I freed 60 GB and inserted a 128 GB micro SD as backup medium. Made a Backup of the Win installation there. Ubuntu image 16.04 - ISO : download and use Universal USB Installer to get it on a USB-Stick Press ESC while starting ...
