Additionally, while I also like the port for the Nexus 6P, it was released in 2015 and is therefore more than five years old. I also can't speak for the reliability of SMS and phone calls as it's not my daily driver.
If you want a new device the Volla phone ($450) might be worth looking into?
@peter-gamma I thought I had said all I needed to on this already (please see my comments above)but......So, please stop pushing Veracrypt and if and when you solve FDE on UT please come back and tell us how.
Until then count this as a friendly warning and stop. This was not your thread to start with, it's never a good idea to hijack a thread and those with more skill and knowledge (and I don't include myself in that) have already explained it is not currently possible. Thanks
@mrlen well it spits out a lot of information, but the critical one is a valid logintude/latitude after the GPS got a fix. If that never appears, only guess it that the antenna has issues. But in general your location backend works, otherwise the NMEA messages would not show up there.
@gt After looking at the system files once again, I figured out how the menu bar is organized. The indicators request a preferred position in the bar. For the date and time this preferred position is 20 for example. The date and time appear on the far right of the bar. The message indicator has a preferred position of 100, so it appears on the left side of the bar.
In an ideal fix, this entire system would have to be rewritten, with some fixed indicators appearing to the right of the notch and the rest placed to the left. But now the bar is indeed dynamically laid out and updated from the right side of the screen, causing some indicators to disappear behind the notch.
It's possible to change the position of indicators. You could temporarily give the messages indicator a preferred position of 22. The envelope will then appear to the left of the date and time in the bar.
For this you need to edit the file "com.canonical.indicator.messages". This can be found in "/usr/share/unity/indicators/".
Note the selected line "Position = 22". Don't forget to restart Lomiri after the adjustment.
This also is a hacky solution, but hopefully it will solve temporary frustration, until the notch problem is properly and universally addressed.
