Create a chroot inside the home directory: mkdir -p vivid-chroot cd vivid-chroot wget http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-touch/vivid/daily-preinstalled/current/vivid-preinstalled-touch-armhf.tar.gz tar -zxvf vivid-preinstalled-touch-armhf.tar.gz Then, use the chroot and install whatever CLI tools you need to use, within that chroot: cd ~/vivid-chroot ...

Ubuntu Touch generally follows a separate release schedule than the standard Ubuntu desktop and therefore information about its releases are published separately. Whenever a new OTA update is released an announcement e-mail is sent to the Ubuntu Phone mailing-list with changes information and LP milestone links. I will try to formalise the release notes ...

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 ...

Ubuntu Touch only ships with Python 3. The module SimpleHTTPServer is one of the modules that has been renamed and/or moved for more consistency in the standard library. That said, you can run the following command: python3 -m http.server I can't guarentee this will work on Ubuntu Touch though, this is just the normal way to do it.

You should open the file that is mentioned in the error with sudo rights. And you should replace all of these: exports: ["UbuntuColors -1.-1"] exportMetaObjectRevisions: [-1] With something like this: exports: ["UbuntuColors 1.1"] exportMetaObjectRevisions: [1] Save the file and restart qt creator.

The dial on the lock screen shows data sources from various apps (telegram, phone, etc...) and also shows the current day of the month. You can change the lock screen background in developer mode. You will need to remount the root partition in read-write mode and then you can change the lock screen background which is located at ...

The CyanogenMod based guide doesn't exist yet. David Callé (who write the first guide) is busy at the moment with other projects. When I talked to him last time (~one month ago) he said it will take care during the summer to do the CyanogenMod guide. Please note that this is only indicative, and I don't know if and when this guide will be created.

The Android version of the phone needs to be repartitioned before Ubuntu can be installed on it. You can follow How to Install Ubuntu on bq Aquaris e4.5, to get your phone configured such that you can flash Ubuntu onto it with ubuntu-device-flash.

Ubuntu and Canonical provides many methods to be in contact with. Pleas refer to this http://www.ubuntu.com/about/contact-us. I think also you can find some launchpad related to Ubuntu touch:https://launchpad.net/ubuntu-touch-preview Moreover if there is something in hardware you should contact the BQ ...

I had this same problem and latest update solved it, but before that I just tried to press power button while BQ logo was displayed - I tried holding it, pressing it repeatedly or pressing it one time once the BQ logo appeared. After few attempts the phone booted normally but I didn't find pattern that works every time.

Choose the call, that you want to save the number of Click on Call (this does not dial immediately) Left of the number you see an icon depicting a person with a plus sign Pressing it you get to the Add Contact option, where you can create a new contact or add the number to an existing one.

You can't expect it to work out of the box right now. There may be compatibility issues: not being able to connect to the internet simply not booting crashing / unstability I would advice against it, but you can always try and let us know the results. It's not only the specifications that are important for Ubuntu Touch, it needs drivers for the hardware ...

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 ...

adb can only connect to a device if the device's screen is on and unlocked. This is a security measure so that no one can circumvent your lock screen by accessing your phone via adb. That is the reason that one has to set a lock to enable developer mode as well. By unlocking your phone you give the proof to adb that you have the permission to access the ...

Sounds like you are affected by this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/syncevolution/+bug/1438662 Basically, even with google account connected, the calendar app is not able to sync with google due to an issue with syncevolution. Events on the Today scope behave the same way. A fix has been provided (it has been reported as working for vivid ...

To add and sync calendars and contacts with owncloud, you can use commands lines in terminal. I've found it on https://lists.launchpad.net/ubuntu-phone/msg09789.html Note : A good way to do that it's from a Desktop terminal connected to your ubuntu phone using ssh (then you can easily copy the commands lines). But it should work in the Terminal app of the ...

Make root filesystem on phone writable To remount root filesystem as writable, execute the following command on your phone (download terminal app if you haven't already): sudo mount -o remount,rw / Please note that after rebooting your phone, / is read-only again. If you want this to be permanent, change /etc/fstab. However, Ubuntu touch on the BQ is not ...

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 ...

Pressing all three hardware buttons (volume up, volume down, lock) at the same time, for about 20 seconds, forces Ubuntu phone to reboot.

Did you try a "real" switch-off (e.g. for 20 seconds) also? It seems to me that sometimes there's a significant difference in behaviour between "reboot" and "switch off". For example, rebooting the phone from a normal state (without any problems) results in getting into a very long boot phase (flashing bq logo and so on for about 3 - 4 minutes). Switch-off, ...

As far as I know you must have a google account or a caldav server to sync Calendar with Ubuntu Phone.
