Desktop apps



  • @Youbountoo said in Desktop apps:

    I have the following lines:

    • daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    • daemon started successfully *
      Then, after the command libertine-container-manager create --id myname --name 'myname' nothing happens, even after 5 minutes...
      Thank you!

    I never used phablet-shell. Can you try with adb shell? And show the output of

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet ~ $ ls -l ~/.cache/libertine-container/
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet ~ $ cat ~/.local/share/libertine/ContainersConfig.json 
    


  • I just tried with adb shell and it says "error: device unauthorized. Please check the confirmation dialog on your device." And I got no confirmation dialog on my phablet... 😞
    I think I'm going to give up the desktop apps thing! The problem is it was the main reason I bought the Aquaris M10 FHD...

    Well, ok. Suit yourself. In case you care, my tip would have been:

    I just tried with adb shell and it says "error: device unauthorized. Please check the confirmation dialog on your device." And I got no confirmation dialog on my phablet... 😞

    Maybe try with sudo adb shell. Also ensure that you have developer mode enabled and unlocked the device after swiping aside the lock screen.



  • I tried with sudo adb shell and it works with most of my apps!! Thank you very much!!

    In fact, I now got GIMP, VLC and Firefox in fullscreen, only Libre Office seems to crash all the time...



  • I just installed Inkscape, and not only it works but it came with 2 ImageMagick (display Q16) icons which made Libre Office fully operational!! I'm a happy man!!



  • "adb shell" or "sudo adb shell" - both don't run on my M10 and E5 (both flashed with ubports images). No confirmation dialog! Developer mode enabled. Device unlocked. Any idea?



  • On Ubports-Nexus 4 it runs. Why not on M10 and E5?



  • Now adb shell runs... (?)

    But Libre Office crashes on M10.



  • If it can help, Libre Office worked as soon as I installed Inkscape as I wrote above...



  • Also with inkscape installed Libre Office crashes. How do you get Libre Office fully operational?



  • Ha! Unfortunately, I don't know then... 😞



  • Now Libre Office runs also without inkscape (sorry, I don't need Inkscape...)

    With the command line "libertine-container-manager install-package -p libreoffice -i ubuntu" it works! (First I took the apt install command...) Language-Package and Help-Package runs also!



  • @1896er But I guess you cant access your sdcard? Do anyone know if theres any plan to get Librecontainer to have some limited access to certain HW that you could set when creating the container?

    Br,

    Lars



  • Yes, no access to sdcard and also no access to usb-drive on M10 FHD. I have no solution...



  • Hello, I've created container, and installed libreoffice, firefox, qtdesigner with command : libertine-container-manage install-package -i container-identifier -p package-name

    Those apps are shown in scope, but when I try to open them:
    Icon with app name shows in middle of the screen
    Then black screen for less than second
    And then apps shut down without any other output and get back to desktop apps scope.

    I am doing something wrong ? Or desktop apps don't work right now for anybody?



  • @tager18 do you see any useful logs in .cache/upstart/ ? (I think that's the path)



  • This post is deleted!


  • @doniks Thank you for your reply. In every log for desktop application (like application-legacy-container-identifier_firefox_0.0-.log) I have got this:
    EE)
    Fatal server error:
    (EE) Failed to connect to Mir: Failed to connect: not accepted by server
    (EE)



  • @tager18 ok. Sounds to me like you should create a bug report. I don't have any other advice. Good luck, keep us posted.



  • @tager18 Have exact same issue on my nexus 5. Created container with no issues and installed apps also no issues. Will check logs as suggested later.
