Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!



  • Hi there 🙂 I thought that Ubuntu Touch is dead but I see that "Dead can dance". I currently looking for some good smartphone to install UT. I would like to test it for web development. I want to install NodeJS, Atom, etc. and test the performance. The first problem I have is choosing a smartphone for that purpose.
    May the force be with you.





  • Hi, I'm a danish librarian with a background in comparative literature, and a place in my heart for Free Software. I've been using UT on my nexus 5 for a little more than a year now, and have recently made the switch to OpO. Never looked back. I simply love the community around this OS and seeing the apps and functions grow.
    Planning on giving the N5 to a friend of mine, that I'm trying to get hooked on UT too.

    If he doesn't want it, I'll mail it to some tech-media in Denmark, along with a letter of introduction - to get UBports some mention.

    Seeing as there is a marketing group - what about an activism group?, or does that fall under the same category?

    I also really love the 'eco'/'green' aspect of this OS - and most FLOSS in general - that it enables you to buy used hardware and give it new life. For instance, my OpO is made out of 100% reused materials, since I bought it second hand.

    Huge thanks to everyone involved in this magnificent OS!





  • Hi everyone!

    My name is Florian and I´m from the north-west of germany ("Ostfriesland")... I`m an interested user in all kind of open source, and I like free-thinking in general...

    Two or three years before I owned a E5 and a M10FHD. Then I stopped using UT, but now I´m back on it... But now with a Nexus 5 and a M10HD. My old devices are no more mine...

    I like UT very much, but I need some support from community...

    Best regards!

    Florian

  • Hi all!
    My name is Beduries and I live in the south-west of Germany, next to France and Switzerland.
    I have nothing in common with computing. I work in a city administration as a civil registry clerk.

    I like the spirit of UT and used it in the year 2017 on my smartphone without an alternative. Despite of missing a tasks app like by Android, I use UT on an OPO device on the evenings to read and surf through the internet. I hope to change back someday to UT.

    Kind regards

    Beduries



  • @Beduries Hello and welcome. Use this link for some useful info https://ubports.com/meet-the-community



  • Hello,
    I'm TA. I waited for UT to come out. Then when it did it only worked on a few phones. Now that there are some affordable choices I do see a Linux phone in my future. I just so happen to have a ZTE R2. So I think I'm looking at this https://github.com/thojohns/android_kernel_zte_z5151 .
    Not sure what I can do here. But I'm willing and eager to do what I can.



  • @TA Hi please use the link in the post above this to start with. These are the current supported devices https://devices.ubuntu-touch.io/ and the PinePhone is expected March next year. Porting here.
