  • RE: Proposal for a Telegram Stickers Project

    One point i want to add, is that we might want to remove the "Ubuntu logo" since for this exact reason we are limited. Things that we want to include yumi on might be approved each time, like if we want to have it on the pinephone for example. We also want to move into debian and other distros, so a removal of the logo would be a good move in my opinion.

    Yumi itself can be used by anyone, that was one of the main point when it was made, but i see now adding the ubuntu logo was a mistake.

    @Aury88 read this: - I think you will find all answers and also maybe its a good idea to just ask them. If they never answer you have at least asked ^^

  • RE: Proposal for a Telegram Stickers Project

    @Aury88 so here is the official answer:

    • While the basic shape of Yumi is licensed CC-BY-SA by Marius, the embedded circle-of-friends logo is (c) by Canonical
    • You have to look up yourself if it is free for private and intended use, I really don´t know this.
    • In theory if it is not free you need a written permission by Canonical to stick it on Yumi.
    • UBports has such an agreement and therefore we are fine 😉
    • You will not have to license every sticker of course.

    So there are chances that you might be able to use the circle of friends for noncommerical use and it´s even in the context of our project. But nobody could tell what Canonical is up to and I would be careful asking them about such things 😉

  • RE: Development of Bluetooth-enabled Ubuntu Touch App

    Remember that Apps do not have any access to hardware directly. This is all contained and sealed and probably you could try to run the App as unconfined, but that removes all protections.

  • Porting in 2019 - a true journey

    Hi Folks,

    I will try to take you on a journey into Portingland, of which I once said it´s like a rabbit hole, making a bad quote from Alice in Wonderland.

    On this endeavour I will be accompanied by other people from the community. It will be fun, full of Information and nobody knows where we are going to land.

    We will start next week. Possible formats are blog style, small videos and podcasts. Let´s see! Your Feedback will be welcomed.

  • RE: I wanna go home

    Just 2 cents from a Windows user:

    The Windows desktop was made in resemblance to a real desk and the things you find there: Files, Folders and even a trashbin (technically not ON the desktop ofc). Its a matter of personal preference HOW you organize your desktop:

    • Some keep it 100% clean
    • Some have a few items lying around
    • Some got a sh1tload of unnecessary things there.

    My current desktop at work has 32 items: A mixture of starter icons, documents and whatever. Windows got adopted also for the "chaotic" way how you can work with it. It tries to give you maximum freedom on that:


    Does anybody understand what´s going on here? No. Does the owner of this desktop understand it? Yes, and he might be most productive with it.

    During work, I almost never have to go to the desktop, however. I use it rarely. Also a matter of personal preference.

    Can´t we just offer: Appdrawer AND background to organize stuff? You could pin starters and documents to the background (Problem: convergence and how to deal with the layout?)

    A good DE gives all users a possible way to develop their own habits and preferences. Not try to force them into a single use pattern.
