To do automatically sync, you can use command lines in terminal app. I think automatically sync is not implemented yet in calendar app. The method below should work with google calendar (I'm not sure because I use calendar from owncloud server) To see the name of calendar server you have to sync, you can use this command : syncevolution --print-configs ...

In the general case you can use ubuntu-app-launch followed by the app name. This sets things up so that the app can connect to Mir. I'm not sure about the media player app specifically though, nor about parameters.

I believe the immediate problem is that the context changes inside the function definitions inside Action. The this object inside Action.handleClick() is Action.handleClick, not Action. But let's back up a little bit: why are you using the function-inside-a-function paradigm here? This is common in browser Javascript, since there is no namespacing in that ...

There is no way to configure this in the Today scope, which per default seems to display only today's events. You can click on the small arrow on the right side of Events today to get to the upcoming events. Alternatively, you can add the scope Upcoming, that should rather fit your needs.

I don't know if / how it's possible to change the default reminder time setting (i searched but couldn't find one), but since currently there is / was a bug related to reminder time settings at all probably this would have no effect anyway. Currently the reminder always starts at the start time of the event, no matter what you choose (e.g. if you set it to ...

In order to install Ubuntu OS on any Android device you will need to have an unlocked/unlockable bootloader. The Amazon Fire phone does not offer an unlockable bootloader and at this time, the development community hasn't found a bootloader unlock exploit.

I'm using Ubuntu Touch development channel on my Nexus 4 and I've never had Facebook notifications come through. I don't believe this is a bug per se, but I do believe we'll need to wait until there's a native app for Facebook notifications.

As for Telegram, it creates a directory in /userdata/user-data/phablet/.config/com.ubuntu.telegram/ named with the phone number of the other contact.

I looked onto the sources of the current developer version. There it is 15 minutes by default. So, it'll be fixed. Maybe someone can explain or link to guides about installing developer versions.

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 ...

I've noticed that if my Aquaris has low charge then it refuses to turn on, even though it clearly has enough to get as far as the charging status screen. The only reliable solution I've found is to wait a while for the phone to charge more (about five minutes on my charger) and then try again.

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.

Try changing the shabang line to #!/bin/bash rather than #!/bin/sh This will default the interpreter to bash, rather than sh. That should be simpler.

Today scope is mean to be "personal information manager". You can select (in options) displaying upcoming events (calendar), favorite contacts, upcoming tasks (notes) recent msg, calls and many more (etc). It would not be fair to compare this to Thunderbird or Outlook yet, but it's so far ubuntu's best way of managing daily personal information.

There's actually an app called"feedback" that you can download from the store. BQ always come back to me with feedback after I post something there. In addition, you can also email bq directly at support.ubuntu.en@bq.com

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 ...

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 ...

There could be better ways, but you can create an upstart script in /usr/share/upstart/sessions/, called evolutionsync.conf description "my script" start on started unity8-dash exec /path/to/your/script This will essentially run once the desktop has started and you see the "home screen" (apps menu and scopes etc.).

To bring the discussion over from G+: OP used a special tool provided by MediaTek and bq for the Android version to change the whole internal structure of the phone, e.g. the partition layout, to be compatible with Android.

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.
