In Ubuntu, if you delete files using File manager or on the Desktop by highlighting a file and hitting Delete, or you right click on a file and select 'Move to Trash' (or 'Move to Rubbish Bin', if, like me, you live in the UK) then the file goes in $HOME/.local/share/Trash. However, there is no such file on my Ubuntu Phone, so I guess you cannot easily ...

It was my understanding that the power off and the on then with on with volume buttons was the andriod reset. I have had a look for the factory reset in storage, but cannot see it. However, if you go to Settings and then Reset you have the option to Erase & Reset Everythibg. This looks like it may be your best option. If this does not work have a look at ...

I saw this the other day, it may be a possible solution to the issue of not being able to locate any more Pro 5's. The Meizu MX6 Ubuntu Edition looks like it might be here soon. However, at the moment it is not clear if the 4G LTE will work outside of China. The Meizu MX6 Made Official, Ubuntu Edition ‘Coming Soon’

To have a sure response at my question i have tryed with my app: 1) I have uploaded to the Ubuntu store the new version of the app 2) I have updated the old version already installed on my Tablet with the new one (using the ubuntu update features of the tablet) Conclusion: the old Database created by the old app version was NOT reused by the new App: a ...

This is a slightly hack-ish solution and I haven't actually tested all of it (and due to the lack of a SIM card won't be able to, in the near future), but it might be helpful. Firstly, you'll either need to either install the terminal app on your phone, if you haven't already, or connect to your phone from your computer (simply via adb shell or using ssh — ...

Well the answer is you cant , cause it is not supported for neither your device nor any ubuntu phone. And by the way you cant install 64bit package in a arm system.Sorry for that! I tried that ARC welder in Google Chrome but all in vain it never works flawlessly , developers have to work more upon it!If you are trying to run some android app , give a shot ...

Solution(ish) Apparently dbus is a thing that could be used to change settings. The short version is that the following python script, when ran as root, turns off silent mode: import dbus session = dbus.SystemBus() proxy = session.get_object('org.freedesktop.Accounts','/org/freedesktop/Accounts/User#####') interface = dbus.Interface(proxy,'org.freedesktop....

Backing up the /home/phablet folder will backup everything except the apps. You can get a list of all installed apps by running click list on your phone. You will have to reinstall these manually. Apps are installed in an number of places and trigger other things like apparmor profile processing so there is no easy way to backup those. Source: comment by @...

Ok, I found a way to to do that. I will post it here, maybe someone else want it too. First, in /home/phablet/Documents, I created a file called myfile.sh with this content: #!/bin/sh gsettings set com.canonical.Unity8 usage-mode Windowed exit 0 After that, I created another file in /home/phablet/.config/upstart called jobi.conf (didn't thought about a ...

I did see on another post here that someone said that there were going to be no more Pro 5's released. However, there would be more Ubuntu edition phones released in time. How long that will be is currently unclear. I do see that there are a few people on here that wish that had of got the Pro 5 and therefore I would imagine will jump on the new phones when ...

After some days of attempts i have found how to "fix" this. A ListView with a query fom U1db as "model" have a builtin automatic refresh of the model (eg: if you add/remove items in the DB and the resultSet of the query changes the model will be updated). But, using the code above inside an AdaptiveLayout, and switching between pages with statement like: ...

Qt and QML applications would be considered Native, generally because they use C++ as a framework, thus requiring compiling for your platform. Not to mention that Unity8 is being written in Qt, and the Ubuntu SDK is a plugin enriched version of QtCreator. HTML5 and by extension, Javascript are going to be associated with being a web application.

Backup everything in /home/phablet. This will backup all user data and program settings. You will however need to reinstall your programs after a factory reset. But once you restore that folder, any programs installed will have the same settings as before. Don't forget to backup all hidden folders as well, such as /home/phablet/.config

Believe the solution to this problem to have been to update the software on the tablet. Tablet had not been visible to the desktop when connected by USB. After updates to the tablet, it became visible.

Thanks to the guys at Freenode #ubuntu-touch I was able to get my osk back. I downgraded to the former OTA-version and then reupgraded to latest OTA. I followed this piece of advice: http://thinkonbytes.blogspot.de/2016/06/how-to-install-older-ota-release-in.html Unfortunately Libertine seems to have been deleted in the process.

If you set file permission to 744, only owner may execute the file. Are you owner of the file? If you want execute shell script without setting script executable (whatever reason), the most reasonable way: $ sh some/script/somewhere/to/run.sh This way you don't have to set executable bit at all. If script is readable, you can execute it.

The recovery is only needed if you want to flash the device with ubuntu-device-flash. If you use system-image-cli directly on the device to switch channel, then the recovery image isn't required.

The Pro 5 won't be available again. Some developers have had success flashing Ubuntu on Pro 5's which shipped with Android. However that process isn't straightforward, and doesn't support the Ubuntu project through device sales. Other devices are on the short term road-map, and should be available to buy soon. Unfortunately Canonical have little control ...

It is not necessary to reboot into recovery. The device needs just to be booted up normally and the developer mode needs to be enabled. The command you used looks pretty fine, so simply try your command again while the device is booted up normally.

You can remove some scopes and apps using sudo click unregister --user=phablet PACKAGE-NAME. However, if they are installed inside the read-only part of the phone, then they will only be hidden, and not removed. Currently there's no way around that.

Go to Ubuntu store (from Apps scope) and search by the name of the scope you want to remove. Then open the relevant result, you should find one Uninstall option.

Yes, it's definitely a supported feature of Ubuntu Touch which works on M10. Screenshot of how it looks like: So it should work... Why it doesn't?.. I can suggest only one thing for you to check. Ubuntu Touch must be logged in before you can see the contents on the desktop. Otherwise you will see only the device name ("Aquaris M10 FHD" in my case, see ...

I have found a new possible solution to this. Using the Ubuntu SDK should be possible if it was compiled into a click package. In fact, there is a bazaar branch on launchpad which seems to exist just for this purpose with the name lp:ubuntu-sdk-ide-click. At first, check whether you have the required development tools on a desktop Ubuntu computer. Ensure ...

Usermode LXC is not supported on Linux 3.10, so the LXC back end of Libertine isn't even installed on that device. If you try to force the tools to perform such an unsupported option, you get an error message telling you that the back end is not available. The solution to this problem is don't force the tools to use an unsupported option.
