@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.
@taiga-woods I'm lucky, I'm not facing such an issue with my Nexus 5 (stable), although the battery drain is quite poor on this device (I have to charge it 1 hour each day at work...). However it should be a little better with the upcoming Halium 7.1 port update (should be released in a few days normally) which would fix an abnormal CPU behavior in current 5.1 port.
@gt I did some experimentation how to get my old messages and contacts back. Here is the solution, which works (with a little draw-back):
I used the new re-registered Axolotl profile (all files in .config/textsecure.nanuc and .local/share/textsecure.nanuc) as basis.
Then I replaced the database db.sql file with the old db.sql from my December back-up. (Apparently, Axolotl deletes all old messages from the db.sql after re-registration. On the other hand, attachments remain in the profile).
Then I copied the contacts.yml from the back-up to the config folder of the new profile.
This works fine, I see all my messages and all contacts. The only draw-back is that I can only write a message to a contact AFTER this contact has written a new message to me. Apparently, the other person has to re-initiate the secure connection. I can live with this draw-back, as it is a matter of time that all (relevant) contacts will be working again.
@peter-gamma Its different for XDA: Everybody knows that on XDa the community is a fair mix of official and unofficial stuff, with probably more "home-brew" stuff so people wont blame XDA for a non-working ROM right?
XDA community is supporting a vast amount of different Android ROMS, and its up to you what you choose. You are responsible all by yourself.
However, on Ubuntu Touch its a bit different: The community expects basically that whaever we publish is working very well, as our old devices have a good record of being fully usable as daily drivers, at least from the porting point of view. Putting a device into a) devices page, b) installer, c) forum gives it a look of being an officially supported device, and so we want to ensure minimal functionality at last, to not scare away people with semi-finished ports that will never get complete.
So for a porter the motivation should be: If you try hard to get your device at least working to 90% or so, you can get into the installer. We list you on the devices page with "experimental, wip, community device" mark if you are not quite there.
But for the forum? Well its a bit difficult, I agree. We could add all devices "just so", without putting any rules. But I really think that would create a ton of subforums with no traffic, until a device gets more popular, and so its really not worth.
XDA is used by thousands of people daily, we might have a few hundreds. So also from traffic perspecitve I dont think that is really needed.
@diagon Good Morning or whatever time of day it is where you are. Firstly no agenda, spin or underlying plan/scheme behind my decisions at all ever. That is not what we are about. Next I think @AppLee has expanded on the main reasons your post has been highlighted twice now. Except for this point and it might help. There is always an argument about removing links for whatever reason from threads unless they are totally and obviously offensive. Yours were getting flagged as spam so what to do. This time they were removed but I believe there is enough info left for people to do their own web search to find out where you are coming from without leaving them or the forum open to potential spam links.
As I have already said if you have reasons you prefer to use Signal over Telegram fine, please expand on them in a way no matter how technical and involved. A long list of links is not a reason for or against. We try hard to keep political and non UT dscussions off this Forum as it is not what it is here for and there are other and better places for that. We have no objection to robust discussion (and there have been a few) as long as it is conducted in a polite and friendly way. So please enjoy and feel to contribute along those lines. We also use this for reference https://ubuntu.com/community/code-of-conduct
@makeixo I used the first episodes of the qml guide on Yputube made by KDAB. Its intendet for c++ but you dont need it to learn the basics. Python + qml is a different topic though. Ubports uses pyotherside for the communication between the two. You can take a look at my app if you want to see how to do it. (its pretty basic) https://github.com/Aarontheissueguy/WaterCount
There are some other resources on this forum aswell.
With that being said If Python is your first language, I recomend that you concentrate on learning it first. GUI's are'nt really that important for many fun personal projects. You can still come back to this project one or two months down the road of learning python. Feel free to ask again if you have a question.
@SJackson There's a buid of Mobian I think I saw someone working on using halium/hybris. But haven't seen anything about it in a while. There's also Postmarket, but no build for N6P. Those might be better choices for your application.
@mjosenhans Hi it's not so much the app but the OS that you need to change. >System Settings > Updates > Update settings (bottom of list)> Channels > change from "Dev" to "Release candidate" This will prompt the download of a new image approx 500mb (check you data-plan or go WiFi!) Once downloaded click on install.
phone will reboot and install.
Don't forget to backup any important data, (but everything should be ok...anyway... but just saying!!)
So you are changing your OS ubuntu (oversimplification I think!!) image to the Release Candidate that still works with Dekko and the camera etc.. and is the most stable at present.
This is temp fix until Dev is updated from what I understand.
