Desktop apps



  • 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.



  • Just tried to get libertine on my M 10 and get device unauthorized message. adb shell and sudo adb shell don't work. Dev mode is on. All I can think off is that I need check to unlock the device by OEM unlock.
    Is this done via laptop with terminal and device in recovery. Sorry cant recall how just now. Thanks



  • @Lakota said in Desktop apps:

    Just tried to get libertine on my M 10 and get device unauthorized message.

    What exactly did you try and what exactly was the error?

    adb shell and sudo adb shell don't work. Dev mode is on. All I can think off is that I need check to unlock the device by OEM unlock.

    I am quite certain that oem lock does not relate to adb. Is the M10 unlocked, I mean the Ubuntu Touch lock screen with password or pin? Does the usb cable work to access folders on the phone? Did you try with another cable, usb port, phone, laptop, to rule out other problems. Does adb work when you are in recovery? Does adb device say anything? What happens in the output of dmesg when you plug in the device? Does the output of lsusb differ between the device plugged in / not plugged in?



  • @doniks Thanks for the help
    Yes lock screen off.
    Yes cable allows access to folders
    Yes tried different ports and cable
    Yes other phone used. Nexus 5 to create libertine container and install apps (succeeded).
    Yet too try recovery
    adb nothing, or on device screen.
    The next two I need to look up how to do.
    The M 10 is running the latest ubports r2 stable.
    adb message device unauthorized. Please check the confirmation dialog on your device. No message on device.
    Also don't have another laptop. Mine is running Ubuntu 17 32 bit.
    Oh and phablet- shell did nothing at all.
    Thanks
