Ubuntu 14.04 can't detect bq "natively" cause of outdated libs. Maybe there is the same issue for meixu. Add this ppa should works. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools

You can become root by typing sudo su in the mobile terminal and providing the lockscreen password if required. This is a standard procedure which also works for the regular version of Ubuntu.

Maybe my question is a little bit stupid but is the phone charged ? Because I noticed on my phone that battery can go from 50% to 1% really fast. Try to do it when your phone is connected to supply power. If it's not come from battery try to remove SD card and SIM.

A search for 'aquaris usb' would have landed you at already answered question 602488, in which my answer was this: Ubuntu touch does not allow USB interaction as long as the phone screen is locked. Even if it is only locked by slide, this can block the interaction. I also made sure my screen doesn't lock after idleness, so this locking doesn't happen ...

Ubuntu components include the StateSaver capability. This allows QML properties to be saved at program exit and restored at restart. For each element with properties you wish to save, set the StateSaver.properties property to a comma separated list of the properties that should be saved. However, there are two enormous limitations of the StateSaver. ...

Ubuntu's app lifecycle policy prevents any app from running in the background. Only the currently active app on the screen is allowed to use the devices resources, any app open in the background is suspended. Ted Gould recently did a talk on the lifecycle policy https://youtu.be/v5iY2NgaBeY which explains all this nicely

Are you familiar with the Ubuntu desktop OS (or any desktop Linux distribution)? Ubuntu touch uses the same approach. Canonical has a repository where they publish updates to the OS image (drivers are included in the image). The phone checks the repository and says that an update is available. User chooses when to download it and when to install it. ...

Brosix is providing versions for amd64 and i386 processors. This means 64bit and 32bit desktops. Phones are using ARM processors. So, at least they should recompile for armhf (and also make sure that the application doesn't depend on X11 display server).

Get the packages with apt-get download and extract files that you need. Or set up an armhf chroot on Ubuntu/Debian desktop (using schroot) and build ghc there. Then take files that you need.

Yes, you can use Qt widgets on Ubuntu touch. Tested on bq 4.5 phone.

Add clip: true to the UbuntuListView. By default, QML objects have this set to false, which allows them to draw outside their allocated rectangle. I assume this is an optimization, since it allows the renderer to avoid calculating clipping for each element. Most QML objects only draw within their allocated rectangle, so you don't notice this. But list ...

your xorg-edgers ppa has been disabled while updating, add the repo again, update and upgrade, that should fix the issue. So the issue is that the installed version of the libgles2-mesa package has a higher version than what is normally supported. My guess is that, before updating to 15.04, you had the xorg-edgers ppa which causes you to have this higher ...

The output of adb indicates it doesn't have permissions to do what it's trying to do. In this case list all connected devices.

Have you tried connecting it as a camera that is how I got my nexus 4 to connect to my computer running Ubuntu 15.04 which allowed me to put Ubuntu touch on it.

Ubuntu definitely has support for Qt, considering that it's built almost entirely using it. QML is the C++ tool that developers use to make the application development easier. Ubuntu touch has OpenGL support, as you can see here.

What you want can't be done. What you should be doing instead is installing your custom apps in a chroot stored in your userdata partition, and leave the root partition alone. Doing otherwise compromises in fact you receiving official updates on your phone.

Here's the quickest way I've figured out to do it. Warning: This may break your phone if typed incorrectly. Ensure you have full backups before beginning and are willing to make mistakes in case you lose all data on your phone. This example command resizes the root filesystem to 6GB, so if it's already bigger than that it will be truncated and your phone ...

Mir appears to use the MIR_SOCKET environment variable, which I found on an Ubuntu phone (emulated) to be in /var/run/mir_socket. export MIR_SOCKET=/var/run/mir_socket and you might be set.

There is neither active, nor discontinued ports for the phone. So, you would need to do this all for yourself. I would not recommend it, because it would a tremendous work, and the phone is too low-end anyway.

I also faced this issue and resolved it with the help of this post: Tether Ubuntu bq phone If the adb command above fails, it might be because the vendor of the phone is unkown (it was for me in 14.04).

It is definitely possible as a recent demo video shows. See David Barth's email announcement from June 30, 2015. Not sure though, what is necessary to use or activate this feature in a Webapp. It may be that you need to set a security policy in the .apparmor file of your project. My bq Aquaris E5 shows a push-notification-client policy that is available for ...

Making the phone system partition RW is not really a solution to the question. There already exists a Bug over on Launchpad for this issue. In order to get this fixed faster for you and many others, I suggest you stop by and mark this bug as affecting you too towards the top left corner of the page. This will increase the bug's heat and hopefully a fix will ...

Another reason for failure to enter recovery might be unsufficient privileges for the usb device of the ubuntu computer. I tried John's flash command but still got a "Failed to enter Recovery" error.

It's possible to loose your IMEI on Android phones and Ubuntu phones are not much different (1, 2), but how did you come up with the idea that changing your IMEI or MAC will result in any kind of increased privacy? Changing your IMEI to that of another user or an invalid one may actually make your phone look more suspicious and may even lower your ...

I don't know of any ongoing development of KeePass (but I don't see why anyone couldn't do it), however I found a couple entries for lastpass in the store you might want to check and see if they suit your needs.

Not as simple as that. You would need support in Ubuntu Touch for the hardware in your iOS device. You would also need full access to the iOS device (storage, partitions, bootloader). You also need a hardware infrastructure that allows you to do this. Apple works very hard to make OS changes almost impossible.
