@mardy No, I would say that is a misunderstanding of the situation.
If you uninstall LibreOffice, should Ubuntu delete all the documents created with it from your hard drive? If you remove VSCode, should all the code you wrote also be deleted?
Of course not. The only way it would be acceptable to delete such data when uninstalling, is if the user could be made fully and cogently aware of exactly what data may be deleted, and give them an option to preserve said data without forcing them to keep the app as well.
Only after some large improvements to how we handle data and config storage, should this be considered, I think.
Concerning purism, I think they go beyond what I expect in terms of freedom. This post shows it:
Not sure why replicant guys are mad. But on a fully free software phone I would definitely not like replicant, I want a real Gnu/Linux! Also they are reproaching Intel's management engine in purism's laptop, saying it would be impossible to disable, but they actually succeed in disabling it:
I recently learned about this project which seems very interesting, and allows clear control about non-free software and firmware installed. Could be usefull for a web consultation device on N900 or Sony Xperia Z2:
I don't know if unity/ubuntu touch could be ported on it at some point.
@ukphil Well, not about Tor Browser as in the title, but VPN problems as mentioned here. The UBPorts/Ubuntu Touch NetworkManager password bug could cost you many, many hours and nerves.
So have a look at https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/46 (mentioned in another post, if you're searching for 'VPN' here, as well).
Read the first 4 lines of the first post – from member NeoTheThird – and the last 9. ;)
Do the job as described there, perhaps you need to study https://ubports.com/de_DE/blog/ubports-blog-1/post/terminal-chapter-1-113 as well:
"To login as superuser, type: $ sudo - i and your password

To select a layout, press and hold the square icon on the bottom left side. You'll see the options. Slide the finger to the desired one. [Nano]

I am sure there are: libertine-container-manager -c 'apt search torrent' should get you going. 'deluge' might be worth a try maybe.
But I am wondering if you would be able to install any packages at all in your container.
Sorry, in previous post i've all mixed in a pile((
I meant that if possible, use KDE Frameworks, аor example: for the archiver to use karchive.
Or make a similar a public program interface. Core apps, perform the same function in the listed environments, why not use the same basis (and the UI for each one is different according to HIG).
But it probably works freedesktop.org, as well notifications, indicators, and more.
PS. Sorry for my very bad English(
Also TBH I doubt the real life value of many of those currencies. In the end we need to convert the donation into real money (which is by the way a tax problem also, since its hard to trace for financial governance and therefore considered as "money laundering" possibility which would be very bad for the foundation), so if we receive a donation on day x, and 2 weeks later the value has gone south, the donator has wasted his money, and we gain nothing.
Unfortunately crypto currencies are highly speculative, and so are IMHO not the right vehicle for donating to a foundation that has long-term goals.
@thatoo I think a syncronization app (like this one on android) is needed in UT in order to communicate with an AsteroidOS.
so probably the problem is not only that they don't have software for ubuntu touch but that we don't have software for them :P
@mawil1013 I use a Nexus5 everyday and that works very well on all fronts for me (battery life is a little lacking) but libertine containers do not work on it. Hence my answer above. UBports Ubuntu Touch is still under development and we are waiting for OTA 4 ( 16.04) which will be here shortly. This will give us a more stable platform and iron out some of the existing bugs.
There will also be more devices in the future. The Libram colaberation is on the way and I think the OnePlusThree is coming too. Also please remember all work here is done by volenters and it all takes time. So if you don't have a phone yet you are probably best with the newer models on the list and then upgrading to OTA 4 (16.04) which should be a few weeks away.
Looks like your connection to UBports Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
