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 !
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: How should I set up my environment for developing?
Hello, you can build a clickable project with F9 or Package>Build>Build Project
But you need to configure the atom-build-clickable addon. For this go to Edit>Preferences
Go to "Packages" click on settings for atom-build-clickable
If you click on "View code" you can edit the plugin to adapt to your configuration.
I did it to use SSH to push my code instead of ADB, this way my phone can be free from the cable.
I hope this would help.
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: choose which folders to share through USB connection
Basically those folders could not be customized. It's the system default folders and apps use special rights to gain access to one or many of these folders.
Can I ask why you want to "secure" any subfolder ? You can move the data you don't want to be accessible via USB with the file manager. And if you set a passphrase than you'll have to unlock your phone to access the content from the computer.
For most people it seems to be enough...
RE: Minimizing keyboard - Nexus 5
The forum's app is just a WebApp and as such, integration with the system is minimal.
The keyboard pops up when needed but the site's UI cannot adapt to something it has no idea it even exists.
So in that case I would say it is normal. Not ideal I agree, but expected.
If you're using Teleports or the messaging app you'll see that the text field's bottom is connected to the keyboard.
And you can still scroll the list of messages on top of the text field.
That is what you can expect from an app designed for UT.
As for Pure Maps it can have the same integration level but this is a cross platform app.
So maybe the effort required to improve the UX is too big compared to the inconvenient.
I'm a big fan of Pure Maps and I noticed this UX problem, but really it was not big of a deal.
For writing messages I found it annoying though, but I usually manage. Plus I don't have any clue how to fix this for WebApps... ???
RE: external monitor
The question was asked and answered during the previous Q&A (#72) :
I don't know if your adaptor is OK, plus Nexus5 does not have USB-C...
RE: Minimizing keyboard - Nexus 5
There is a thin gray line on top of the keyboard.
(It's wider in the messaging app than pure maps I agree)
You can grab this line and slide it down to hide the keyboard.
But IMHO apps should resize the list so there is no need to hide the keyboard.
I guess y can open an issue about it.
Hi, I just moved this topic to support as it's not a question about app development.
And I suggest to address this matter to the app's maintainer using gitlab or github...
[Edit] Actually it's github :

@poVoq Maybe you can help if you're around here.
