there is a possibility to use script /usr/share/ofono/scripts/offline-modem with parameter /ril_0 which will stop receiving signals from network, so typing in terminal:
will turn off SIM1 ... and to say B-side as well
/usr/share/ofono/scripts/online-modem /ril_0 will trun it back on
if you want to manipulate SIM2 just use /ril_1 parameter for those scripts
See our Q&A from last Saturday: UBports has no plans other than to follow what they do. They need to finalize hardware specs to get an idea if a port is viable or not. Currently it´s simply too vague.
The Nexus 5 has some problems with video recording, so i'd say the FP2 delivers a better experience. But of course, the FP2's price tag might influence your decision... Used Nexus 5 devices can be found pretty cheap. Both are an ok experience.
@fmulcar I think we are in line, more or less, and the both of us think that the Nexus 4 is a nice device. For myself i try to be patient with a hope that the Nexus 4 still have a future, but in the meanwhile i stay with the Canonical version.
However, i think that Nexus 4 should have some priority since it had under the wings of Canonical, being their primary device. :)
Well that is great to hear! I'm going to post a couple "deep" questions with a prefix of "Ubuntu AMA:", these will be questions about basic system organization and flow of control. Hope we can start to fill this forum with some answers which will be referred to again and again in the coming years!
Dekko's just an email client, right? New mail notification is a server feature. For me, I have an imap watcher which watches for new mail using the IDLE extension and pushes an XMPP message:
and I have a web interface to XMPP so I can read from a browser anywhere:
The final part is a daemon running on my phone, and its counterpart on that webXMPP server. When my phone's active, it just does a popup notification with sound. When the phone's off, it also gets the LED's blinking. They turn back off when you unlock the phone. The server remembers the client, and as soon as new messages arrive, it does a notification push.
I guess I'm telling you that I don't see how an email client gives you push notifications. The best it can do is try to run in the background and poll an imap account. But Touch SIGSTOP's apps as soon as they lose focus (delta that UI tweak utility) which will fight you, and it's a waste of battery and data anyway. imap IDLE really isn't a great fit for a mobile platform.
