Yes Libertine works well for CLI with ARM64 existing packages but GUI apps are not meant for the mobile form factor, you won't have good results with it.
Hardware acceleration does not work for the N5 hence poor performances on video reading.
That is a known limitation.
The scaling of webapps is probably due to the original website or the lack of maintenance of said app. If your experience is based on Facebook, that is something that they do voluntarily to force the use of their dedicated iOS or android apps.
Ive installed ut on nexus 5 several times each phone is different. My tips would be to start with android rom with twrp. Unlocked then use ubports. I use it from snap. But also restarting ur computer. On my nexus 7 i had to be in su on ubports even tho its not recommended. Lol id try alot. Restart, reflash android, use snap package, try several times sometimes it works the fourth time. Also when you do install it and its in the ubunti touch logo it usually stays there for quite some time, pretty sure its still installing. Let it sit there for like 20 min on charger.
Thats all i got. I do know u can do manual install but havent had todo that yet
@applee@domubpkm : thank you very much for sharing your experience. This uVideo seems to be new to me, I don't remember there was another movie player than UTmedia and the original Media player, I have to test it !
There is also some issues I meet currently (mainly Nextcloud CalDAV), I think I may post a new thread if I don't succeed to solve the issue.
EDIT : I confirm that my videos taken from my camera can be played on uVideo, this app handles .mp4, .webm, and .ogv extensions so that's cool ! I don't know if this app handles subtitles, but with this and support of .mkv, then, it would be a perfect app.
@flohack Yes, I forgot that the rootfs is the same across different halium versions.
But I wonder if it still isn't possible, that some components like pulse are used differently.
For example, why does it claim, that no pulseaudio deamon is running for ierihon, while it lists sinks for me on bq 4.5 and FP3?
And isn't it also about kernel modules for a common audiochip, which could be supported by a newer kernel?
Ah, you said that they do not upgrade the kernel,
I thought you was talking about vendor blobs.
