This related I believe to another known bug in Ubuntu 16.04, with many others affected. Most also do not have connection icons after Resume from Suspend, or no connection at all! See here; Wifi doesn't work after suspend after 16.04 upgrade See here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/1448555 You can also just restart ...

From googling around it seems that libertine cannot be used on 15.10 without remounting the root partition. This may change with OTA-11 which has an eta of sometime next week. (week beginning May 30th).

I had the same issue when I got my pro 5. What it was is that I had added my gmail calander account when I was setting up my emails. However I had not allowed the calander app permission to mu online account. So I went into the accounts and clicked add online calender. This brought up the allow permission question for the account I had set up. I clicked OK ...

This is a known bug, apparently, and is already documented here. Supposedly it'll be fixed and such in a later version of Dekko, based on the bug, but it's not got an ETA.

I was trying exactly the same, same setup, and I think the critical error is this: Downloading recovery for aquaris5 ls: cannot access recovery-aquaris5-6.0.4.3.img: No such file or directory or as I had it: Waiting for device to be connected in normal or recovery mode Dev:: Waiting for fastboot to be ready cannot load 'recovery-aquaris5-6.0.4.3.img': No ...

Answering my own question, it might be linked to this bug, which mentions problems streaming video over http. Indeed, if I store the mentioned file locally instead of streaming, it's shown correctly. I guess the locally stored files I've tried earlier (WebM, Theora) might have other issues, but that seems unrelated to this issue.

The only way I have been able to do this is by playing my music via the media player and then viewing other screens. This does mean that i do not have the selection of web sites auk as youtube. The idea that yoy could use one acreen to play music and amother to play a game is a good one.

Found the solution myself. As I stated earlier there are a lot of WiFi access points. For that reason I decided to use WiFi channel 13 instead of channel 1, because I figured it must be congested since it is a default channel used by a lot of manufacturers. As you might know channel congestion might cause network collision or lost of WiFi signal. ...

No (but it will feel like yes for a while) If you enable rw on / and start modifying it, nothing disables the delivery of OTA updates. So when they arrive, they will be offered to you for install, as before. However, the OTA process does a very simple thing to the filesystem. It just untars a large set of files on top of the filesystem you have. Since it ...

On ubuntu 16.04 I had to add a different ppa sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa -y

Sadly I do not know the full solution to this as some packages seem to be broken (at least when using a denial container). However, one part of the problem is that the Ubuntu SDK is not in the main/universe repos, but in a ppa, so it is necessary to add the ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa personal package archive to the apt sources ofthe container. This has to be done ...

For a particular mime types default handling application you'd want to look in /usr/share/applications/defaults.list This file contains the default applications for all handled mime types. If an application isn't configured to open a file at all (not only as the default application for that type of file), you'd need to look in its desktop entry in ...

You cannot run qmlscene from the terminal like that. Applications are run under confinement. Also, you should not set the device root filesystem to read/write mode. It will only result in problems with updates in the future.

You should use the Terminal app. Navigate to your files, then type nano filename. This opens your file in the text editor nano and you can make your changes.

I guess you are playing the music by using the browser. Normally, only that app is being executed which is currently shown at your screen. This is done to bring the best performance to the currently used app and to extend your battery life.

The command cal is not installed by default on Ubuntu Touch. Contrary to desktop Ubuntu you can not simply install it through apt-get. Your options are: wait for somebody to package it for Ubuntu Touch (unlikely, as this is not really a typical tablet/phone application) mount your system r/w and install with apt-get (DON'T DO THIS, it will likely break ...

I found that Nord do not use a user certificate, so the 'Type' setting for the main openvpn page should be set to 'Password'.

Note that the Proxies page was left blank as default: ...

Long tap on the terminal to hide the keyboard. No idea about the Ctrl-Shift-V though there is a selection mode if all you want is to paste. This works the same as other apps ie. tap and hold where you want to paste.

https://drive.google.com/?usp=docs_web gives an example of how to install Inkscape in a libertine/puritine container.

GNU Octave didn't install successfully though. OTA11 will make life easier, though, I ...

As far as I know the Bluetooth facility of the phablet is restricted to connecting just one single device. As a result, you can connect either a BT keyboard or else a BT mouse. Another viable BT solution would be to connect one of those fancy BT keyboards with an integrated touchpad which figures as a single device.

Thanks to reply Vistaus. I need to update this thread. I got to run legacy apps using the Libertine emulador.

You may give the app called "My Web Apps" by Matti Rinta-Nikkola a try. This app gives you an option to store 20 different bookmarks and allows to access them easily. The same developer has similar apps for other specialised topics: My News Apps, Google Apps, Wikimedia, Ubuntu Resources.

There's a service that should be installed that scans your music and creates a library for the application to use. You can restart this service by executing the following command: restart mediascanner-2.0 If that doesn't work or isn't valid, you may need to install the daemon: sudo apt-get install mediascanner2.0

I have recently bought the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet. It has a few X11 programs built-in (Firefox, Libre Office, gedit), but the filesystem is read only. I have managed to install GNU Octave, but the X11 GUI is not working. Touch isn't suitable for users to install X11 software yet (May 2016)

What language are you using the phone in? If it's not English, set it to English and then try installing the apps after restarting. That worked like a charm for me. I personally use English (Denmark) so that I can use my device in the 24 hour format, but I believe most flavours of English would work for this purpose. You can revert it back to your preferred ...
