• RE: Looking for new maintainer / developer for TextSecure / Signal app

    Itยดs not only time. Openwhisper System was not cooperative in helping us with all the information we need to make a real good native App including push notifications. I can see their point about amateurs weakening security, but on the other hand other systems like Matrix seem to be more responsive to communities.

    Besides that, file sharing does not work inside Anbox because it would need a ton of things replicating hardware access to apks, and also the folder structure is totally different between UT and Android. I doubt this will come soon.

  • RE: New Launcher, edge channel.

    No, I added the handle on the right. Previously you could drag from anywhere on the Drawer to get it to close, but that behavior didn't work right. Now you can only drag from the handle.

    I tried to make the handle not appear on larger screens to avoid the desktop issue, but that doesn't work. Touch screens can be large enough to get it to disappear.

    Of course the code is all open and Drawer.qml is pretty simple to understand. I'd appreciate your suggestions.

  • RE: OTA-10 call for testing

    @gps1539,

    This issue is not a regression, it has occurred for multiple releases. I'm sorry we won't be able to take care of it this time, but it is a known issue. https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/926

  • RE: OTA-10 call for testing

    @nightshift, no, that doesn't sound like a known issue... but it also doesn't sound like a regression (something newly broken) from OTA-9 to the OTA-10 rc either. We are only interested in regressions in this thread. Please see my replies in your other thread.

  • RE: Please help to revive Nexus 5

    @nightshift

    Unfortunately I am only able to test on the Oneplus One at the moment, my Nexus 5 experienced a soldering iron-related hardware failure. I have a new motherboard in the mail (again, at my expense ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

    Everything seems fine here. I wonder if the calling issues you're experiencing are related to an interaction between Ubuntu Touch, the Nexus 5, and your carrier. I can say that I used a Nexus 5 daily for 7 months on an AT&T MVNO and only missed a call when I had it muted (that is, because I was a dumbbell, not the phone).

    Since this has deviated from the "Please help revive my Nexus 5" topic, I'd like to ask you to open a new thread to discuss this problem. Please include information like your carrier and any patterns you've found between when calls work or do not work.

    @nightshift

    I'm sorry that you found this issue, but please note that everyone you are talking to (excluding mariogrip and myself) are volunteers for this project working in their spare time to help you. You received this software at no charge to you.

    At my expense, I've purchased Skype credit to test this issue. Please stand by.

  • RE: Running Wayland apps on edge?

    If this is an android device, wayland currently will not work on stock edge, as some changes to the android graphic plugin is needed for wayland to work.

    See: https://github.com/ubports/mir-android-platform/pull/7

    I have setup an experimental branch that you can try:

    sudo ubports-qa install xenial_-_edge_-_wayland
    

    but yeah, this is highly experimental ๐Ÿ™ƒ

    Please note that the "startup screen might just be black, but unity8 should come up after some time"

    To start any applications you need to set:

    export EGL_PLATFORM=wayland

  • RE: OTA-10 call for testing

    Thanks for the feedback @gps1539! I'm glad you're enjoying Ubuntu Touch.

    Ubuntu Touch OTA-10 release candidates have been respun. Please update and continue testing as normal.

    The new release date for Ubuntu Touch OTA-10 is Wednesday, August 21.

    Our Google account key changes have been reverted. If you added your Google account with the old keys (W31 or older) it will start working again. If you added your Google account with the new keys (W32 or newer) you will need to go to the Calendar app and tap "Sync" to re-authorize your account. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    RC was not pushed because no RC has been pushed. Only devel is building again. RC will be pushed later.

  • RE: OTA-10 call for testing

    The Google sign-in problems continue to plague, this time in "Broken online accounts fail silently". Revert "Google: use new Ubports keys" has been pushed to resolve this. Again, RC needs to be respun to see the changes. devel is building now, rc will be pushed from it tomorrow.
