Ubuntu Touch Q&A 81 Saturday 1st Of August At 19:00 UTC
What's going on with the guys from Shiftphones?
@Lakotaubp . . . right, I did take a bad direction in the comments. I'm sorry for my bad behavior.
@thousandtopics - how about we get the phones working?
@marlboro50 good question

@UBportsNews I have understood from previous Q&A sessions that some of the major development goals include:
- moving to systemd
- moving to 20.04 base
- moving to wayland
Any updates on these goals and how they inter-relate? systemd for example we heard briefly from Marius went better than expected when working on Lomiri for Manjaro Arm.

@UBportsNews how will other distros (e.g. Mobian) be able to use Ubuntu Touch click apps? Would they effectively need a different packaging format? Will UT itself eventually move away from click or is the hope that more will adopt click format?
First of all thanks for your great work. Greetings from India.
I am eagerly following most of ubuntu touch #ubports and #pinephone news and developments.
I like to bring one design question or a proposal where the current launcher bar (unity) lomiri (now) always visible by default which is good for Laptop or desktop. As a mobile phone interface that design occupies some real screen estate as a result the whole phone looks lesser width which downgrade the hardware screen design.
Is it possible to visible only the ubuntutouch icon by default, then when click on that other icons on the launcher shall be visible. .
So in this way the whole phone looks better and more coherent/coupled with screen display hardware.
Thanks to all.
Hi all! I'm new to this community, thanks in part to the Pinephone UBPorts CE. Some questions in no order at all:
Will we ever see
clickable desktopsupport ARM64 machines (e.g. Pinebook Pro)?
What are the expectations for moving to Wayland on UBPorts? Is it expected to eventually make Lomiri faster (in terms of responsiveness, or enabling GPU acceleration in apps, etc)? What do app developers have to worry about in terms of switching over?
