  • Ubuntu Touch Q&A 56 is this Saturday the 10th of August at 19:00 UTC. Please join us for Ubuntu Touch development, updates and answers to your questions! Post them here before the event and Youtube Livechat and Telegram during the live show.

    Live Show : To be added

    Please remember that questions on porting to device **** or it's status, and questions on bugs will not be answered

  • The "Launcher Modular" alternative app launcher and dash replacement posted in the Open Store ( https://open-store.io/app/launchermodular.ubuntouchfr ) shows some very promising design features, that for some of us seems like it could be a superior option to the current Apps Scope (as well as the Edge channel App Drawer launcher that is going to replace the Apps Scope). Is it possible that the UBports team might consider integrating some of these features that are in the "Launcher Modular" into the upcoming default App Drawer / default Dash, or perhaps make an improved "Launcher Modular" the future default?

    Best regards,
    Steve Berson

  • Hi and first of all, thank you for your amazing work. I own a Fairphone 2 since April and I immediately installed Ubuntu Touch on it. Thank you for easily allowing me to have a smartphone without Google! However, although it is an officially supported device, I have a lot of bugs which look device specific (switching on and off flight mode disable the possibility to turn on data connection, flashlight isn't working, sharing connection doesn't switch off correctly... I reported most of those bugs and they are open for months). I know that as a project with limited resources, it's complicated to fix everything. To increase those resources, the project needs to be more known and used, and for that, it needs to be more stable to have more users. So my question is, how do you take decisions about investing in new features versus fixing existing bugs, and shouldn't the officially supported devices, as ambassadors of the OS, be more stable? I really love the project and I use it on my primary device but I am a tech person and I feel like the OS isn't stable enough at least on the FP2 to be recommended to Joe Average. Do you plan to focus more on polishing the current features on officially supported devices?

  • Regarding qt announcment about qt6 what is the implication for UT? Should it magicly works if we switch to a newer ubuntu version? I know it is really early as it not event release yet or close too, but just curious.

    You mentioned that you had spoken with some people at Fosdem about the possibility of having a Tor button... Have they shared their know-how about how to implement this in the OS?
