Notifications and waking up
I have some questions regarding notifications and the screen not waking up
I received a voice mail today but didn't really get any notification. I am not sure what to expect, the little green notification was lit, but that was lit earlier from emails and texts I received. I had no notification that I received a voice mail until much later and actually missed an important call.
Another problem I am having - when I receive a call or when the alarm goes off, I need to use the power button to access the screen. Is this normal? I haven't been using UT for very long but I thought the lock screen would show up when either of these events happen.
Thanks for your help, still trying to adapt to UT
@mooncosmique Yes you should see it on the lock screen for alarms and calls what device and channel are you on. Also for notifications the envelope on the top bar should also be green which I think is what you mean. Pull down on that and you will get a list of notifications the green indicator light flashes for new notifications after this.
It might be worth rerunning the installer without wipe to see if that fixes things.
I have an LG Nexus 4 and am on the stable channel.
I will try to re-install. I am assuming that when you say run it without wipe that my data (notes, contacts, mail, texts) will remain intact?
@mooncosmique Yes. Just DON'T select wipe and everything will remain.
You should indeed not need to hit the power button to turn the screen on when receiving notifications or calls.
@dobey I have the same problem. When I receive a call, the screen is off and when I try to turn it on with the power bottom, it turns off so quickly that must of the time, I don't have time to accept the call. I have to play with the power button until I am faster than the screen.
I have a BQ E5 HD unbuntu edition, with the last OTA.
@Teigneux I have the same problem. I have a Bq E4.5 OTA 10.
@JuanSé OTA-11 is here soon you could try that https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3219/ota-11-call-for-testing now and see if there is any improvement
I think that i posted similar notification issues in this thread below. In my case i'm not notified about new sms. It could be that there is general problem with notifications. BTW Dekko notifications work fine for me.
On my Nexus 5 the screen don't wake up:
- when alarm ring up
- when I'm receiving calls
- or when I'm receiving message.
Is there a way to configure screen to wake up in this cases ?
@saveurlinux You may be better off starting a new thread as this thread is very old and the issues involved have probably been fixed by now for their device. Also could you add what update channel you are on.
The screen should wake up automatically. You could try moving to another update channel from system settings and see if that fixes it or reinstall the channel you are on from the installer (please don't select the wipe option).
