The root user is not enabled but you can become root without setting a password for it. Just type sudo su in the terminal and give it the password of the phablet user when it asks for one. //EDIT: I've tested this with developer mode enabled, where the phablet user's pass is the one used for the lockscreen, though in theory the command above should ...

I have made the version update (ubuntu 14.10 (r22) -> ubuntu 15.04 (r23)) on my E4.5, this has solved the problem. I now have sound notifications, and the led is flashing green (it's flashing blue for text)

Maybe you should flash it like some other Allwinner devices ( allwinner = cortex a7 processor that your phone has ). Maybe this will come in handy: http://www.hardreset.info/devices/meizu/meizu-mx4/

Mine got stuck straight out of the box, never fully booted. Maybe it already has the faulty image you updated to

Sorry, but there is no app that does exactly what you want; the file manager you mentioned comes closest. You need to put your phone in developer mode and run the file manager as root as well. Then you can access all the files using a GUI and can delete anything you want. Warning: you can delete everything when using the root mode, including system ...

It sounds like you should be using Drag and Drop in addition to just MouseArea, as shown in https://developer.ubuntu.com/api/apps/qml/current/QtQuick.Drag/

As suggested by @Maarten Klop, adding the vendor ID to adb_usb.ini seems to help: mat@ACA80164:~$ cat .android/adb_usb.ini # ANDROID 3RD PARTY USB VENDOR ID LIST -- DO NOT EDIT. # USE 'android update adb' TO GENERATE. # 1 USB VENDOR ID PER LINE. 0x2a45 After doing that: mat@ACA80164:~$ adb devices List of devices attached 750ABLMPX44Y device ...

Screen must be unlocked, I did not experience USB port issues. For me, this was the critical step: The file ~/.android/adb_usb.ini on your computer is a list of valid vendorIDs that are allowed to connect. I found that list empty (or non existent, don't remember). Just add a new line with the vendorID for the MX4, you found it already: 0x2a45 I also had ...

The MX4 USB port is picky and unstable with USB3.0. Please try to connect to USB2.0 port or USB2.0 hub to see if it fixed your issue.


0

First ensure the USB Cable is working correctly and try to connect it directly without a USB HUB. Then on Ubuntu Touch go to Settings → About this phone. Then go all the way to the bottom Developer Mode, set a Lock security to your liking and then turn on Developer Mode

the keyboard is kind of awkward, especially with the special characters etc, and arrow keys would help there, I agree! That said, the autocorrect is pretty nice, I hope you have that working at least, this is dependent on using the correct language. Especially when you use multiple languages that's not so obvious. -Long press the globe left of the space ...

I did not experience this issue with my E4.5. The sound notification for Telegram is configured via system settings - sound - message received > choose sound. If only vibrate on message causes this continuous behaviour, this is also the right menu to turn of vibrate on message. I hope you can get this solved!

Databases created from QML LocalStorage are saved in ~/.local/share/<appid>/Databases/, where <appid> is the applicationName in your MainView. The databases have hexadecimal names and the extension .sqlite. Each has an associated .ini file with the name and description from the first and third arguments to openDatabaseSync. If you only create one ...

Yes, you can take reference from this: DualBootInstallation Not sure Meizu is on supported list.

If you already have your qml file on the phone, it's pretty easy. All you have to do is to call qmlscene with an extra argument. Start a connection from your desktop/laptop with phablet-shell. Run qmlscene with --desktop_file_hint, example: $ qmlscene --desktop_file_hint=/usr/share/applications/dialer-app.desktop $HOME/Documents/myfile.qml

according to this article it's not such a good idea. Not all Meizu devices are unlocked, and even if they do, they have a different partition table scheme.

Check if the handset is supported first. Having a quick look at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices this device does not seem to be supported.

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 ...

The kernel will offline cpus when they are not required to keep the power consumption low. When the load increases it will automatically put more CPUs online. One can see how many CPUs are available and how many are online using: getconf -a | grep NPROCESSORS _NPROCESSORS_CONF 4 _NPROCESSORS_ONLN 1 Above, 4 are ...

The root filesystem is read-only and you have to remount it in read-write mode with this command sudo mount -o remount, rw / and copy the ringtone afterwards. After that you can restart the phone and the root filesystem will be read-only again.

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 ...

Are you trying to pin to bar on left? If so open the app you want, then when the app is open slide from left to get bar up, then hold the app icon (on left bar) there for a few seconds, the option to pin should arrive. Is this what you wanted?

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...

The phone needs to be switched from 2G to 3G to work with the 3 sim card. To do this, go to Network - Mobile Settings. Under Connection type select: 2G/3G(Faster).

You can try an elimination process to get a clue about the cause of this.First try to reset your mobile: turn your mobile off, remove the battery, and ensure your SIM is securely in place. Then turn your mobile on again. If you still get this message then the issue may be a defective SIM because you've already determined that the SIM is working in the other ...

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. ...

Galaxy S3 is not officially supported by Ubuntu touch but, there is a ROM available you can flash via clockworkmod. i9300 Ubuntu wiki i9300 Ubuntu XDA Rom download link However, this ROM is discontinued since 2013, and according to the XDA page: "No GSM/Phone calls". So, try at your own risk.

In my manifest.json, I had to add a property called content-hub to hooks: "content-hub": "hub.json" And then create a hub.json file: { "source": [ "pictures" ] }

Make sure to include the "webview" policy group in your apparmor profile. At a minimum, the apparmor JSON file should be { "policy_groups": [ "networking", "webview" ], "policy_version": 1.2 }

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 } } }

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

When starting a new project, you need to select one of the "QML App with C++ plugin" templates: I personally prefer CMake over qmake, but either one will accomplish the same thing. When the new project wizard completes, you will end up with an application consisting of a QML interface and a QML plugin written in C++. It also serves as a functional ...

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 installed Ubuntu Touch on a Nexus 7 2012 as a boot option from MultiROM manager using the instructions on Ubuntu Touch preview here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2093797&page=11 It installs an old preview based on Ubuntu 13.04 and is no longer supported.

This is just to say you're not the only one... It happened to me too yesterday as soon as I saw the update was available. At this point you cannot just reset your phone, what you need is to re-install ubuntu-touch (at least that's what it sounds like from your description). I cannot speak from experience because I don't have the time to bring mine back to ...

With the Ubuntu Touch OTA-4 update released, the browser now has a privacy mode and some privacy options (clear cache and clear Browsing history) which are very welcome.

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 ...

Yes, unfortunately Touch on HP Touchpad seems to be a back-of-the-queue for developers, (which is strange considering the number of TP's out there - natural potential hosts for Ubuntu Touch, especially now that WebOS is out of support). I'm not going to agree that the "solutions are outdated" - get yourself over to XDA-Devs (specifically Ubuntu Touch 13.10 ...

The MTP export works by default (no need to enter development mode) as long as the phone is unlocked. If you have 14.04 you probably miss the fuse rules, so to add them follow this guide (my BQ Aquaris 4.5 UE product Id is 2a47/2008), you see it at end of dmesg after plugging in the phone. Still working on a way to expose it as usb-storage

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.

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!

There is Settings -> Abouth this phone -> Storage but this is just for statistics. I think what you're looking for is External Drives from the Apps screen. I don't have an SD card though so can't be a 100% sure.

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";
