future ubuntu touch



  • My English is bad, sorry:)
    I am very interested in the Ubuntu touch. I'm tested pre release ota 13. Not bad! Most issues you are fixed! Congratulations!
    Have some ideas:
    Please do 3 versions of Ubuntu touch: lite, normal, maximum.
    Lite: without stock apps. Maybe features. Without animations etc. Maximally stripped down. Super lite, fast) Stock is the usual version of what it is now. Maximum is maximally pumped, tweaks, functions, settings ...
    it would be cool to change the look of the interface. Also the choice of theme: light, black ... Personally, I miss the ad blocker in the browser. Add the possibility of another control, possibly other gestures, or navbar like android. Advanced features of the notification indicator. The ability to select the battery mode: energy saving, normal, productive. Night mode of the screen, in the evening/at night the screen becomes warm, relieving the load of the eyes. add a full-fledged photo editor. Capture video from the screen. redesign the top curtain, by adding a screenshot function, etc like an android. After all, it is not convenient to take a screenshot while holding the volume buttons. in android it is more convenient. Split screens will be useful for >5.5". Take all the best from android, iOS etc and make a super duper operating system.
    What's you think?

    It seems you missed uAdBlock: https://open-store.io/app/uadblock.mariogrip



  • @nexus5 It seems you have the idea clear, you just have to make it work.



  • I like the idea, but bear in mind, the amount of people actually working on UT that are not volunteers is very small, like 2 to 6 people for the actual coding. I feel the amount of stock apps now is fine since it doesn't have loaded bloatware, but the essentials for any smartphone power user, there are also many ways to achieve what you want with the android like behaviour, for example, if you want a launcher bar at the bottom, download the app Sprint, you could also start working on the actual coding portion of your idea and either propose it as the new standard moving forward, or have it in the open store for other like minded individuals to try out. I will say that almost all of the built-in apps currently in UT have some type of system integration though, so stripping apps that come with UT would also result in stripping a large amount of functionality away as well.



  • The 1st thing in my opinion is to
    make ut work 100% on oneplus one at least. For now:

    • the zoom and flash of camera app are not working.
    • share url via dekko 2 is not opening a new mail with the link in body
    • the ad block app does not seem to work in Romania EDIT it works with some mvps... in settings
    • sometimes when making a call the phone starts activating loudspeaker and dials numbers like it is possessed and the touch becomes unresponsive.
    • the same crazy behavior happens if I unlock it just after I receive a notification.
    • also it happened when I tried to close the alarm in the morning
    • you can not position the cursor when entering text in browser.I can only drag the cursor to the text's end.
    • you can't select preferential text.Just all..
    • when searching in 1400+ phone contacts I need to delete and retype a character to triger the search.
    • you can import only 350 contacts in a vcs file. For 1400 I splitted the file in 4.
    • Dekko 2 does not show search results from server.
    • dekko 2 does not delete mails from trash folder.
    • in rc the tap on phone near the name in log starts the call directly but from contacts that does not happen just like in the actual stable release.
    • when sending sms for parking UT does not warm you that the sms has additional cost. That means that if the crazyness happens just after I payed a parking..... until I hard shut it down, it can send numerous messages
    • wifi and data connection alternation is not smooth.I receive no connection If I exit from wifi range and the data connection via sim is available.
    • web.skype.com in the browser behaves not ok: if I tap backspace once, the keyboad disapears making it hard to delete text.
    • rc chanel has a known bug, video recording.

    I'm shure I forgot some observed bugs but I still prefer UT over android or ios.

    I'm not happy that at least for now, I don't know how to investigate these bugs and try to fix them.I'm just on the web side for now in codding regard.



  • @marius-ciclistu regarding dekko:

    • share url via dekko 2 is not opening a new mail with the link in body

    This works if dekko is already open when sharing whatever to it. Sharing to dekko while its closed (https://gitlab.com/dekkan/dekko/-/issues/74) will be fixed with the next release by end of october.

    • Dekko 2 does not show search results from server.

    Can you elaborate?

    • dekko 2 does not delete mails from trash folder.

    Thats actually a known issue, but there seems to be no issue for it yet. May you write one please?

    To be direct, I do NOT support your proposals. Even so, I want to THANK YOU for taking time to express your thoughts here. Again, THANK YOU!!

    Also, I’m very SORRY to see that a few have “down-voted” your post, especially given that “down-votes” are anonymous on this site. Please don’t let them deter you from expressing you thoughts here. 🙂

    As for those of you who (anonymously) down-voted this post, WTF? If you don’t like a post, take a few minutes to explain what you don’t like.

    As an aside, I think this site should rethink allowing anonymous down-votes. Either show who down-votes, or eliminate the option to down-vote. Just my opinion, for which I suspect that I’ll receive at least at few anonymous down-votes for expressing.



  • Tend to agree with @GizmoChicken on this. If you are going to down vote a post and it's obviously not spam/ offensive and you go on to report it as such, then please state why. You never know those comments may prove to be as useful or interesting as any other.

    • Dekko 2 does not show search results from server.

    Can you elaborate?

    In android If no results are found on the device, a search on server apears that shows results from server. If I setup the dekko 2 on my phone today, and I search for an email received in the past for example, in Dekko 2 no results are displayed.



  • @GizmoChicken
    I upvoted him to balance ^^

    I think you're right, downvote/upvote should not be anonymous.

    And i don't know if downvote he received were even on the content of his proposal...



  • This is by far the worst bug https://streamable.com/i9ppab

    I also opened a topic a while ago in here.



  • is there python on ubuntu touch?



  • On develop 1594 another issue I forgot to mention is fixed : morph yahoo mail reply
    menu in mobile view.
    Also remember session works.
    I hope the above mentioned crazyness is also fixed.

    Camera flash and autofocus are still not fixed.
    Also batery drainage is aparently less than in stable.



  • develop 1594 rotation is not working.



  • @marius-ciclistu This is not an issue tracker. Please comment on issues filed on GitHub, and do not take over other threads on this forum to talk about the issues you might find on your device.

    The topic of this thread isn't about what issues people have with UT on their devices.
