RE: Ubuntu Touch On OnePlus 3 From Marius
Stating fact is not the problem here. We are all aware of what could be better.
You came here and wrote this and this. What people trying to actually DO something hear is:
I don't understand why such basic think is not done yet.
Even if you came just asking question this is not the way to do it.
In community like this one, what is appreciated is:
- Being thankful for the job already done
- People who want to contribute by trying/doing
Stating the obvious doesn't help anyone.
Criticism is not banished. But it should be a productive one.
When you see something that doesn't work the way you want, you can come here and ask what can I do.
Personally I use UT for 2 years now on my daily driver (a Nexus 5). There are some issue, battery leaks, ... but I'm glad to have an alternative to Android which drove me crazy years ago.
I couldn't control my domotic, so I created an app. Some people use it and I'm glad I'm able to give a little back to the community.
This message is not condescending, I expect it to be something that will help you (and others) understand the philosophy of open source communities. Do not simply come and ask ; come and ask what you can do to help.
Everyone is welcome to contribute with what they can offer.
Nice opportunity for me to say a big thanks to every contributor. I'm a happy user of UBPorts !
Have you ever been in an overcrowded touristic spot ?
You'll see buses with a lot of old tourists and as unhealthy as it is elders love tablets to take pictures.
They like it because they can see what they are shooting at and that is something I learned from an elder person next to me at grand canyon.
But I tend to agree with you regarding the prospects for the PineTab, but if some of you are like me you might want to purchase one for your old people so you can troubleshoot them more easily than with an Android tablet, so ...
RE: On this (US) Thanksgiving...
They all helped with a development issue and explained why I couldn't do what I wanted, now I try to help whenever I can and to contribute to repay the community.
Thanks UBPorts !
RE: Mobile data tracker
@Elsifer Someone is working on such app yes.
I'll try to find the post here and will update my post accordingly.

RE: Looking for a volunteer to make app icons
Hi, I read your post and I'm trying to improve my designing skills, so I decided to give it a try and I did a first proto for your solar compass.
If you like the design I can change the colors or upgrade the design.
I put a sun logo to indicate north on a basic rose.
Then I added a shadow to represent something like a sundial...
What do you think?
I have no inspiration for libertine tweak tool, but if something came to my mind...
[Edit] : By the way, this is a PNG file but I made a SVG, so no size issue
RE: How to extend the system UI and UX?
The actual solution would be to add the "volla launcher app" to the launcher (left bar).
This way no modification of Lomiri is required.
IMHO modularize Lomiri is a good idea, but I never looked under the hood.
From what people who have, this is not as simple as it could seem especially with convergence in mind.
What would be nice is a conception model so we can see the actual architecture of Lomiri.
Does someone has this kind of documentation or any idea how to make it ?
Retro engineering the documentation is not something easy but it might be very helpful to plan Lomiri's future.

RE: Launcher Modular
I like the circle like this and find the data quite interesting to remember when some meeting took place or else...
Of course something more customizable is always welcome : set priorities, toggle some info on/off, ...
But as always with customization it takes time and it's not the priority of UBports over functionalities and stability.
So this has to be a community effort.
And as a project manager I can tell that the best course of action is to work one small step at a the time.
RE: root partition's size on different phone
You need to install OpenCV ?
That is not a utility program, but a library.
So if you're trying to build an app using OpenCV then you should start by reading how to make apps for Ubuntu Touch.
Dependencies are a bit tricky and you can either copy the binary lib within you click package or compile the library along with your code.
If OpenCV is a dependency for another app, then use Libertine container.
Understand what is blocking you and follow our instructions. Insisting in your direction won't probably help you achieve your goal. Resizing the rootfs and mounting it RW is 99% a bad idea.
RE: Is my nexus 5 a soft brick can it be repaired?
I don't know the details, but I read few similar issues.
You'll have to find an android version for Nexus5, flash it, update to the latest firmware then start the procedure to install Ubuntu Touch.
With the bootloader locked nothing bad can happen, with the bootloader unlock, you can always go back and flash Android.
People here might point you to XDA forum or other if you need help to get back to Android.
RE: System updates
Auto download applies only to the system updates.
You'll have a notification and you'll have to manually start the system's installation.
Apps are downloaded only when you tap on the update button.
For apps as you noticed, you have to go in the update section of the settings or in the Open Store's app.
RE: apt-get install fails with read-only filesystem
Apps are expected to be click packages from the Open Store or any other mean you might have.
Installation using apt is enabled within Libertine, so "desktop applications" can be tried on tablet or within external mouse, keyboard and screen.
Libertine is a bit experimental though.
As @Keneda mentioned the rootfs is mounted read only for good reasons.
Tweaking is always possible, that's open sourced and we cannot prevent people from doing what they want, but it's completely not supported.
