I which to use UT as main OS on my device, but a few things hold me back right now.
Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of my statements. (I have yet to watch the latest Q&A.)
- 16.04 is not ready yet.
- anbox is not ready yet.
- it's not installable through the official installer. (will it be?)
But I keep my hopes up that those issues will be resolved in the near future.
How ever, as a former UT user I'm very exited! (Used a Meizu MX4.)
- The xenial base is ready but some apps are not yet
- Anbox works in some devices but not in others. After OTA-4 is released, Marius says he's going to add a lot of improvements, even in qualcomm devices
- You can install 16.04 RC or devel using the ubports-installer now. In fact, you can do that since a long time ago
Thanks for a quick response!
Are you sure that the Gemini PDA is installable through the ubports-installer?
It is not listed on the webpage.
Do anbox work with bluetooth apps? (I have a smartwatch which I wish to have running.)
I know @TheKit got UT running on the Gemini PDA. The big question there is, is it ready for daily use?
I really hope that the Gemini PDA will be officially supported.
@zzarr ah, I didn't mean on Gemini PDA. Because you said "I which to use UT as main OS on my device" I thought you were talking about another device, sorry!
Anbox is under development, and in a very early stage, and there's a bug about bluetooth and watches (https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/766) so more than likely it doesn't work out of the box.
@advocatux Hello again!
I see, maybe it'll be useful in the near future.
I have a Idea when it comes to libertine (the UI), could a virtual trackpad be added? (Maybe it exists and I have not used libertine for a long time?)
could a virtual trackpad be added?
@zzarr generally speaking, I think anything is possible if someone with the necessary knowledge and skills wants to improve something in UT but I don't know the technical requirements of that to give you an specific answer
