Ubuntu Phones have been out for over a year now, and currently don't have support for this. I'd love to see an app arrive with support for VoIP, but one currently does not exist. So the simple answer to your question is "no".

I have found a sort of workaround by editing the 'Name' string in the *.desktop files found in ~/.local/share/applications as the icons are sorted on these names. For gouping I gave all my games the prefix "Game:" Unfortunately the .desktop file for an app can be overwritten when upgrading the app so it's not a one-time-job but you may have to keep redoing ...

Looks like your missing libqt5gui5 from your stage-packages UPDATE: So to expand my answer a bit more.

I had this problem with my bq tablet as well. Turns out it was caused by this bug, which describes how the system "decides if it should close existing ones based on level of free memory available in the system.". This wasn't working very well, which is why it needed to reload every tab when switching. The bug should be fixed in OTA11. After installing OTA11 ...

Which level of control are you looking for? For graphical (VNC) connections you can try Remmina. I have successfully installed Remmina in a new libertine container but haven't tested a lot with that yet. I have only used it to connect to Windows VM's so far. To install Remmina: Start by adding a new libertine-container: libertine-container-manager create --...

I think you mean "Nix package manager" (NixOS is a linux distribution built on top of Nix packages manager). Nix installs its packages into /nix folder which you need to make it writable for user that will perform installations. we call this single-user mode. There is also multi-user mode which allows multiple users to install packages, but setup is a ...

Official answer: yes. Practical answer: not until OTA-12.

No, it cannot. There is no "default" indicator which is opened when swiping down. Swiping down from the position of the notifications indicator itself, will show the notifications.

snapd is not integrated with Ubuntu Touch yet, so on the phone or on the tablet, you won't be able to easily install snap packages. That said, you can take a look at https://github.com/ubuntu/snappy-playpen/tree/master/ubuntu-clock-app to see how the Ubuntu Clock app (from the phone) was turned into a snap package, so it can be run on the Unity7 desktop. ...

I have been looking into this myself and as yet, I cannot fond an app that can do a full system backup/restore, like the laptop ones you have mentioned. Smartphones by their nature are intended to function differently from desktops/laptops. They store a lot of their data in the cloud (contacts, emails, photos and such like). However, this will not cover sms'...

I don't get the error you're getting. I see rvm download a slew of arbitrary shell script commands from site on the internet which it then tries to run as the superuser using sudo. My imagination is sparkled by so many possible ways to own someone's system right now. Anyway, to test this is had a container with a terminal installed (in my case, I used ...

The --bootstrap option is normally only used when installing Ubuntu the first time. It requires that the device is booted to the bootloader. After Ubuntu is installed, one uses the ubuntu-device-flash command (without the --bootstrap option) while the device is booted to Ubuntu

I expect you have tried Bike maps although it is very limited? I am still awaiting for someone to make foxtrotGPS work on touch devices; so far not impressed with Osmscout or uNav.

You XDG documents folders are automatically bind-mounted into the Libertine container. In other words, if you save a LibreOffice document in your Documents folder, it's saved to /home/phablet/Documents. The XDG documents folders include Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos.

Preparation: If you haven't done so already, install the Terminal app. In the Terminal write: $ dconf write /com/ubuntu/touch/system/dim-timeout "@u 0" The dim-timeout Key wants an unsigned int as a value. That's what the @u is for. The number stands for the seconds after the screen is dimmed (0 = infinite). (Since the setting is stored for the local ...

This is a recurring problem if you try to set up a Libertine container from the Terminal App, and caused by the confinement of the Terminal App. Please try again using an ssh or adb shell session, which is fully unconfined. A better long-term solution for this problem is under development but unlikely to be delivered before OTA-13.

You're possibly experiencing this bug. This should be fixed with the latest update (v2.9.1.1322).

I run Ubuntu 15.10 on a Samsung ATIV 700, which is one of those 2-in-1 PC/Tablet things and it works well. Drivers for the touch screen worked out of the box. The only drivers that I don't have are for the ambient light sensor and . The touch screen itself is somewhat useful in the desktop environment. Unity has some multitouch gestures (e.g. for moving ...

There is a LastPass App on the Ubuntu Store. It is made to store passwords, but also organizes and launches the web addresses to the sites associated with the passwords. Seems to work reasonably well on M10 and seems to work for sites where you do not provide a password.

Have only seen the camera app offer an option to direct files to the SD card. However, can use the File Manager App to cut/paste files between M10 and the SD card. Can eject the SD card, mount on another computer, and add/remove files using the other computer.

You can change terminal lifecycle by running these command. Find out which apps are supposed not to be suspended: gsettings get com.canonical.qtmir lifecycle-exempt-appids For me this command returns ['com.ubuntu.music'] Add terminal app to this list gsettings set com.canonical.qtmir lifecycle-exempt-appids "['com.ubuntu.music', 'com.ubuntu.terminal']" ...

I know about this bug. This often happens with me, when I had a long session with my phone and especially when there were many progress with the Unity 8 gui e.g. switching between staged and windowed mode. In these cases the display server seems to work optically properly, but for real it runs laggy. You sometimes reconize it by failing updates and ...

Your usb port looks OK because of its reading a stick (usb-OTG) So take another cable; it might be a not fully functional cable, just only for loading your device but not communicating with it.

Thanks to Daniel for the pointer. The answer is: Go to open.uappexplorer.com and download the openstore click package and install it. If you cannot find your new open store app restart or search for it the apps scope. From open store app install UT Tweak Tool. Again, if the app is not in the scope, then search for it, restart or you can install an app ...

The partition is mostly empty. I have scavenged this info from another meziu pro5 phone. Hope it will help another poor soul that will mess up the internal flash.

You cannot use scopes to "wrap" a website. You would want a simple webapp for that. Scopes are used for querying and displaying of remote content from a web services API e.g youtube, amazon, or querying a RSS or XML data feed of some kind etc. Scopes provide a way to render the raw data in a clean and consistent way. If your blog has an RSS feed then you ...

I am not a programmer - It took me many attempts with both Precise and Trusty desktops to get Ubuntu Touch on a Nexus 4 - which should be the"easy" one.

After some more play here is what you need to know and do. Ubuntu touch is booting from an android device so the partions have to be apropiate. The android system is identifying the partitions by the partition label. You have for meizu pro 5 this partitions: system (the root partition), cache (used for upgrates by Ubuntu, you should have about 1G on it), ...

If you like the version of an app you can create a .click file before updating it. The installed apps are inside directories in /opt/click.ubuntu.com.

Instead of mounting /home/phablet/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine somewhere in home you can also create a softlink to that directory in /home/phablet/Documents cd ~/Documents;ln -s /home/phablet/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine Puritinedocs should do the trick.

No, the previous location data is not cached and re-used if location detection is turned off.

First: U won't need to buy a new phone to learn programming. There is an emulator for ubuntu touch also for android. I am owning the nexus 4. Maybe it is the right device.

The man pages and man tool simply need be installed, and you need to be running the command within the chroot after doing sudo chroot . inside its root directory.
