@kalle-kruse said in CardDav (contacts) support:
@mardy Thanks for the reply. I am using an Owncloud server in my home network and got syncevolution on my ubuntuphone working as described in this blog post: http://notyetthere.org/syncing-ubuntu-touch-with-owncloud-or-any-carddav-server/
I also got syncevolution working, previously with Owncloud, currently with Synology's built-in carddav and caldav server.
This is not user-friendly, because i had to manually type all syncevolution configuration codes via Terminal on my ub phone :s
Adding generic caldav accounts is fixed in Calendar app now, but adding generic carddav accounts would be great
I can help with translations. Testing is possible, but it's also my daily driver, so it mustn't break anything serious..
@dobey I'm going to be giving the app maintainers the suggestions as they arise, but the uNav was another one I wanted that back button for.
Thanks though for straightening out my thinking.
@Fla Yes, that is an intentional change made by Canonical because they intend to use the left side of the indicators for menus. So far, no one implemented any menu so we can't see it in action yet aside from some experimentation by Dalton, I believe some months ago.
Here is a topic about that question: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/2963/uninstall-anbox
If you don't mind some remaining files laying around in /home/phablet you can just re-install UT without wipe. Kernel and rootfs modifications will be gone. The android rootfs plus apps will still be there, though. Not sure if anyone ever wrote instructions how to get rid of all anbox related things.
So repowerd will listen on dbus to set the led on/off state, color and pulse rate.
Unity will decide if and how the led should shine.
Now the thing is repowerd already knows about the battery state and the display state.
So I think part of the policy could best be done in repowerd:
only show the led when the display is off
indicate battery low (or hot?)
if no other state for the led is set then show charging/full
unity will then set the led state regarding unread messages, bluetooth or whatever comes next
But I am new here so you I'll follow your advice.
The order would then be
move led hardware control to repowerd.
Allow the led state to be controlled through dbus.
Let unity use the led using dbus (extend Powerd plugin, remove Lights plugin).
Add led indication of battery state low/charging/full.
Question is where should this be done and how does it get the battery info?
@arubislander said in the future of the UI:
Even in the real world, I would be forced to do all the things you mentioned for myself if there was no one else to do them for me.
Indeed. It's amazing how some people think that without corporations forcing us to buy products for convenience, we wouldn't be able to survive, despite humans having done so for many thousands of years prior to the industrial revolution.
@advocatux said in Any plans to have encryption as an option in future Ubuntu Touch installers?:
@Opolork probably that'll be easier on non Android devices than the Android ones.
Android devices impose many limitation on us, like for example, we can't re-lock the bootloader currently and things like that.
On the other hand, and at your own risk, you can experiment with some approach like this https://forums.ubports.com/topic/1012/one-method-to-encrypt-home-phablet
I think I'll give that a miss.
