Maybe a idee to add back ground nusic option for browser or something? Love to listen lets say onlne radio but when i turn off ny screen for savety and battery purposses it kills the audio... Well that doesnt count for the radio nl app with all dutch radios
I use these websites to find the streams for radio stations which I like listening to via MPD or Mopidy on a Raspberry Pi 3B connected to a old stereo tower :
Maybe you can do something similar with the Ubuntu Touch Music Player ?!
I'm using 2021-W51/2 on a FP3 and I discovered two issues:
Screen switches on/off during a call and continue even when the call is terminated, as if the proximity sensor had a problem.
To explain more, I called someone and when I wanted to hang up the screen switched on, off, on etc. The other people hanged up, the screen continued to switch on/off, and I had to reboot to fix it.
I don't know whether it worked on OTA-20 since I installed in on yesterday, but it worked on Android so it's probably not the sensor.
Notifications don't clear. To explain, if I receive a message I have a notification at the top of the screen. I open the application, read and respond to the message, but the notification is still there at the top until I manually clean it. Tested with TELEports, if it helps.
It worked on OTA-20.
Except these two issues it works well. Thanks for you work!
Generic CALDAV? with Nexus 5
I am using a local CALDAV server with Ubuntu Mate (radicale server) and cannot sync my calendars. Radicale works as it should. I have been using my own calendar server successfully with all devices for years.
What I do....
I add an internet calendar and select Generic CALDAV. After entering the local address ("192.168.x.x: 5232/username/") my 4 calendars and 1 address book are found and displayed. All 4 calendars are marked for viewing.
Furthermore, the account has been set up, seen and activated in the settings (com.ubuntu.calendar/calendar).
The synchronization can be started manually and seems to be doing something, but there are no appointments to be seen in the calendars. I was hoping that CALDAV would now work with this release candidate. Is there a log file that I can view and where can I find it?
If someone has a similar problem, I would be grateful for advice.
@4carlos Hello 4carlos. I am running a radicale Server on my Freedombox and have the same Problem. I can see my Calendar in the Settings but nothing appears in the Calender. I followed a Tuturial on the UBports Documentation App (CalDav and CardDav syncing) but this script did not work either. Maybe it works for you? Take a look on it. I am using a Volla Phone...

@4carlos Don't see any mention of CalDev in the blog https://ubports.com/blog/ubports-news-1/post/ubuntu-touch-ota-21-call-for-testing-3796 maybe check the OTA-21 issue tracker as well. If not then your issue might not be related to anything in this release.

Guys I am sorry but this post should only be used to report
a) problems with the changes that were done with OTA-21 according to the project columns "Done" or "QA" in https://github.com/orgs/ubports/projects/31
b) Any regressions that appeared betwenn OTA-20 and OTA-21
Sorry, this is a misunderstanding on my part.
"Google accounts have been fixed and can now set up again properly",
.... "And a few bugs and common issues have been fixed, too."
and was of the opinion that something was fixed with the online accounts. That's why I tried "Generic CALDAV" again after a long time. I was pleased to see that this feature no longer crashes like it did in previous versions. However, appointments are still not synchronized.
@Mikaelb, I know the script solution and have used it for several months.
But, it no longer works for me with the OTA-21 RC.
In the terminal I start as part of a bash script :
and get errors with OTA-21 now. That's new! At the moment the calendars cannot be used.
The system message is
status = 20010
error = error code from SyncEvolution error parsing config file (local, status 20010): kalender: backend not supported by any of the backend modules (syncxmlrpc, syncsqlite, syncqtcontacts, syncmaemocal, synckcalextended, syncfile, syncecal, syncebook, syncdav, syncactivesync , platformgnome) or not correctly configured (backend! 3dselect backend databaseFormat! 3d syncFormat! 3d)
start = 1641012600, 2022-01-01 05:50:00 +0100
end = 1641012600, 2022-01-01 05:50:00 +0100
Status 20010 could be : 20010 Error parsing XML config file

Current RC does not boot all the way on Suzu (Xperia X). The screen either remains almost-black (but on) or shows the Sony splash screen.
It will boot normally on Devel and Stable.

@Flohack USB/ ADB / MTP prob solved? browser issue already solved or not?
Redmi 9 tested out couple things
So when in Ubuntu touch can't connect my phone trough usb, Redmi 9 maybe someone solved it or not??
This means I can't use anbox or at least i haven't figured out how to yet.
Morph: When download jpg or zip or what you want the browser shut down, after reopening the browser again it's gonna tell Download failed in the download tab. I'll try it again later in
Eum some huge issue is when reboot or anything the phone is i have Redmi 9 is like old school windows going slow, when left for 10 min on a table it's getting better, turned in to airplane mode and it was like the problem was solved hahaha..... And when I have my sim in it is also with double like number keyboard and keypad for insert sim code on/ after boot up.
Anyway I'll be unlocking my bootloader again in a few days just to try once again
Also gonna try the fix gprs gps with unav outside
Hope to see this going to work
Can't wait for a fully operational system
Love Ubuntu touch x
