Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!

  • Hi, I'm Kugi Eusebio from the Philippines. Around late 20's 😛
    I'm a software engineer but only for a packaged application so nothing exciting 😄
    I've been using UT since 2014. My first UT device was a Nexus 7 2013 which I bought primarily to just install UT on it.
    I was part of the Ubuntu Pioneers who are the very first ones to publish apps in the then Canonical's app store.
    I bought a BQ E5 HD on 2015 which I used as my main phone until now. I also bought a 2nd hand Nexus 5 which I now use for my UT developments.

    I've bought a lot of stuffs because of UT......folding keyboards, bluetooth mouse, portable monitor, slimport adapters, OTG hubs, etc. So it's safe to say that I've invested time and money on UT 😄

    I currently have 4 apps in the OpenStore and I've been more active in the OS development recently with one-liner bug fixes and the recent OSK theming support.

    Just saw this thread LOL

  • @kugiigi Better late than never : ) I really don't think you need the Welcome info link but don't want you to feel left out so here it is https://ubports.com/telegram-welcome XD

  • Hello, i'm Max, and for about 10 years i have been a Linux user. Since the last 3 years i only use Linux (so ditched Windows). At this moment i only use mainly Deepin and on older hardware Linux Mint. Since i am a privacy freak (thus hating Android) i came across Touch and now have installed it on an old LG-Nexus 4 i picked up. Installation was easy after watching the instruction video, just follow the instructions on the screen. The whole process took about 15 minutes and everything worked out-of-the-box so WiFi, bluetooth and normal telephone functions. Touch runs very smooth but i did ran into some minor bugs. I used Touch for a week now and i am happy with it but... I do miss some (for me) essential functions. I would like to choose another browser (like firefox) and i need WhatsApp working. Did found some info to get WhatsApp working but even with 10 years of linux experiance i do not understand these instructions. I am used to working in / with terminals but the instructions i read only lead to errormessages. I will keep on using Touch for now but also my good old Iphone 5 for Whatsapp. Hope there will be a solution so i can fully switch to Touch. Who knows..

  • @Max Hello max and welcome to UBports and Ubuntu Touch have a look here to get you started. Enjoy and you know where we are if you need us.

  • Infrastructure

    @Max Hi and welcome!

    Sorry to say, Whatsapp is no option currently as the App and the protocol are closed source, and the workaround with Loqui IM is also not working anymore if I am right. I also think that Facebook will never choose to make a client for UT as they cannot collect user metrics for their tracking and advertisements from Ubuntu Touch 😄

  • @Frank Hello and welcome to UBports and Ubuntu Touch have a here https://ubports.com/telegram-welcome for some info you might find useful. Most importantly enjoy Ubuntu Touch.

  • Hey guys,

    I'm not sure I should reply here, since this topic isn't pinned, and nobody replied to it for the past 6 months. 😜

    I've registered to the forum 3 weeks ago, but in any case: I've been a Ubuntu desktop user since 2007/2008, I was once a wiki admin and contributor for the Ubuntu-fr.org community, and I've contributed to the FreeCAD community from 2010 until now, among other things being a wiki admin (FreeCAD is an open source parametric CAD program that runs on Linux, Windows and macOS).

    I've been wanting to free myself of Google's clutches for a while, and salvaging a discarded Nexus 5 with a cracked screen gave me the opportunity to test UT on it. I was really impressed with the ease of use of the UBports installer! Soon after I purchased a used OnePlus One because the N5 simply doesn't have enough storage space for me (16GB). My goal is to make the OPO my daily driver once I've set up everything I need.

    I must say that I find the user documentation for UT sorely lacking, struggling at first to do the most simple tasks. I found useful info in the blogs, which should be found in the documentation, IMHO. Consequently I'm thinking about trying to contribute to it.

    That's about it for now... 😃



  • @normandc yes, this thread is still alive. It isn't pinned because we decided to pin this https://forums.ubports.com/topic/176/welcome-to-the-ubports-forums 🙂

    Welcome btw!

    Edit: and your contributions to the documentation are welcome too 😉

  • @advocatux
    Thanks, I had read that topic but not noticed the link to this one in it.

    I will write a topic in General about documentation contribution.
