Your phone is not a desktop. Installing desktop specific packages may break the configuration of your phone (similar to how non-desktop packages can break your desktop installation). You also shouldn't use apt-get on the phone unless you are fully aware of the consequences, which the average desktop user typically is not. From a developer perspective you ...

Enable the developer mode in the system settings of your Ubuntu phone: Open system settings, go to the bottom and tap About this phone, again to the bottom, and tap Developer mode and turn it on. Now you'll be able to drag-and-drop...

I have a BQ Aquarius E4.5 running Ubuntu 15.04 (r23). It comes with Python 3 (just remember to start "python3" - "python" does not exist and does not symlink to Python 3) so that's a start. I can't see any gcc, cc, or Java on the phone, and no hits on "gcc" or "compiler" or "java" in the Ubuntu Store. If you make the file system read-write you should be ...

The directory where gettext will search for translations for a particular translation domain is controlled by the bindtextdomain function. The library most likely has a call to this function somewhere in its initialisation routines. So two options you could try are: Modify the library so the bindtextdomain call specifies a directory based on $APP_DIR. ...

Michael Hall, a Canonical employee, answered this question on Reddit: Snappy is an evolution of click, which will eventually replace clicks on the phone. Snappy Personal is to phone and desktop what Snappy Core is to cloud and IoT, it's the base install image that provides the minimum functionality needed for you to get started. ...

Bluetooth At least for Bluetooth you can do the following: Use adb To use adb you must have developer mode enabled and adb installed (the sdk is enough, you don't need the entire IDE, which is Android specific anyway). If you have it installed you can follow these commands $ adb shell phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ sudo vi /etc/machine-info [sudo] password ...

I can confirm that the Mathematica kernel taken from RPI runs on an Aquaris 4.5 phone running Ubuntu Touch. Short instruction how I proceeded: On the phone, run the sshd demon, i.e in terminal I run /usr/sbin/sshd -D &" (this allows password authentication, as was discussed in this forum) Copy Mathematica from RPI to phone. I used tar cvf - ./Wolfram ...

Now there is an app. But you have to install the Open Store as described here. In summary you just have to run the following two lines in the phone terminal (taken from the comments from Zachary Igielman): wget http://notyetthere.org/openstore/v1/openstore.mzanetti_0.2_armhf.click pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted ...

I finally hard reset my BQ aquaris E45 with android only. The ubuntu touch was too bugy, location very hasardous, missing calls, some calls not loged, cannot receive MMS, network issue while taking the train...

Yes. See Turn Your Phone into a Portable Web Server Ubuntu Touch is still Ubuntu, Linux! Use a Terminal app and do whatever you like. (You might consider a Raspberry Pi with Wifi however. That's a lot cheaper and probably does whatever you need, and can be run from a power pack.)

You can try using aptitude. It has better dependency handling as far as I know. Otherwise install the required packages before using that apt-get line. sudo apt-get install libglapi-mesa libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 libgl1-mesa-dri

A setting like that still doesn't exist. Currently the only way to do it is from the terminal by deleting the content of /home/phablet/.local/share/webbrowser-app Keep in mind that the bookmarks are also stored in that folder and if you want to keep them you shouldn't delete everything inside.

Just to clarify Confinement Policy, if you want to write a file on Ubuntu Touch, in your file mytype.cpp, replace: QString filename = "text.txt"; by: QString filename = "/home/phablet/.local/share/your_app_name/text.txt";

I faced the problem, this worked :- On Nexus 10, after unlocking the bootloader (fastboot oem unlock), the internal storage is left unformatted and must be formatted with- $ fastboot format cache $ fastboot format userdata follow all the remaining steps to flash your nexus 10 and ubuntu should run just fine.

The BQ Aquaris phone manual states that you should use the phone and completely drain the (pre-charged) battery. Afterwards you should completely charge and drain the battery the first few times to allow for automatic battery calibration. If you didn't follow that procedure, I'm not surprised you need to calibrate your battery afterwards. (This is best ...

Just launches the application with the number: dialer-app tel:///666 --desktop_file_hint=/usr/share/applications/dialer-app.desktop (how to run apps on Mir from command line: how do I run a mir application from a command line?)

There are two things you will have to consider: You need a power adapter. That should be no problem. You have to check if US service providers use one of these 3G HSPA+ (900/2100), 2G GSM (850/900/1800/1900) frequencies. In the US the frequencies 850 and 1900 are used, and hence the phone should work. This seems to be verified by some US users on youtube. ...

You don't need any storage button: Ubuntu Touch will detect files on an inserted SD card and show them in the correct scopes... That's it!

at the bottom side of the screen there's a "(1)". Slide this up and you can find a "new tab".

I believe what you want is a Repeater, which repeats its delegate for each item in a model. As an example: Column { spacing: units.gu(1) Repeater { model: ["one", "two", "three"] Label { text: index + ". " + modelData } } }

You can easily copy pictures and videos off your phone by plugging it into your desktop via a USB cable
