UBports Community Update 20 | January 6, 2018



  • Questions:

    • Will someone work on GPS? uNav and Browser (maps.google) lead to restarts and makes therefore the usage very hard. Also the bad update of positions makes the navigation useless.

    • OTA-3 lead to more battery drainage. Any comments or reasons and or possible fixes+

    • advances on dekko 2?

    • browserstatus of nextcloud integration, files sync also with browser



  • @twinkybot Very good ones, I was about to say the same.

    I think after having Xenial working fine, with or without anbox, it would be good to start trying to fix the battery, gps, issues.

    The NC integration is a must but at least it will be good to have a better browser integration with it, right now its almost useless because you dont even have the chance to download any files. Everything else is great!

    Thank you guys again for all the effort!!



  • In the past there was mention of experimental channels.

    Is that still planned? Or does it exist already? Any images online yet? Are there instructions for developers how to set up a channel?



  • Is a UBports presence planned for Fosdem? https://fosdem.org/2018/



  • UBports device statistics stats.ubports.com have some, lets say, imprecisions. Would the push server be able to provide a more realistic estimate? Are all UBports devices connected to this server in some way?



  • Are there any updates on a UBports image that can be used on a Halium port? (I missed a few community updates)



  • Does anyone know if there is any coordinated effort to get apps from the Ubuntu Store into the Open Store?



  • This post is deleted!

    I stumbled over the info below, which translates into: Still work-in-progress

    Bonjour Jimmy,
    J'ai rejoint le groupe français sur télégram. Merci pour l'info.
    Le souci que je rencontre c'est qu'avec la 15.04 et essayant de réinstaller libertine on ne peut pas car il faut l'application X-app et elle ne figure plus dans l'openstore.
    Ce n'est pas grave, je vais passienter.😴💤

    Hello Jimmy,
    I joined the French group on telegram. Thank you for the info.
    The problem that I encounter is that with the 15.04 and trying to install libertine can not because it requires the X-app and it is no longer in the openstore.
    It does not matter, I will pass.

    I just looked at the statistics, which is not bad at all with continued growth.

    If you want more correct statistics about the recurrences, it would be good to send a unique number of each device that could be calculated at the installation (the IMEI number would do the trick, but is more indiscreet).
    This unique number could be depending on the date, the IP and IMEI for example.
    The only IP is not correct, especially in Belgium where some operators renew it every 36 hours or during a reboot of the router.
    In addition the updates can be done by several channels: ISP of the house, the 4G or from another location.

    The time I write this message, there were 14 more devices ... loool



  • @twinkybot I have just used uNav once since OTA-3 and it worked well with my BQ E5.



  • It would be nice when we click on the icon "SD" that we can open this folder

    Il serait bien lorsque l'on clique sur l'icone "SD" que l'on puisse ouvrir ce dossier.
