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: 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: 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
About the timezone, Bearded1 on UBports TG channel send this :
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata sudo timedatectl set-timezone America/New_York
You can set the timezone using either command and even by choosing
Manuallyin the settings...
Changes may take some time to be visible.
Some camparison between PinePhone and Librem5
If I'm not mistaken, PinePhone port started on Edge channel so the current dev branch.
So yes OTA-12 is linked to PinePhone by extension...
@normandc I think a end-user can help test the dev channel than later the rc channel on the PinePhone. It will help the developers focus on the issues specific or not found on the PinePhone.
I'm a developer but not ready to jump on OS development, so I ordered the Pinephone to help testing and reporting bugs.
And if I feel I can dive into one or two issues, I will try to fix it.
That is probably a good 1st step.
RE: How to open a .txt file that I copy from PC to FP2 with UT?
The files created with Tedit can be found there : ~phablet/.local/share/tedit.fulvio/
You can access it with the file manager and move or copy them wherever you want.
But if (as your title suggest) you want the other way around, I'm not sure if Tedit can handle it... but I didn't read the code, so maybe.
RE: Pinephone tutorial
It can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.
And the fact that you didn't figure out a way to do it by yourself is probably a warning that you shouldn't do it.
But hey, it's your phone.
I'm making assumptions here because I don't want to brick my phone while testing
So if I have a quick look at devices on the PinePhone you'll notice 2 MMC blocks. One is the sdcard and I suppose the other one is the eMMC.
To avoid damage, you'll have to copy data from the sdcard to the eMMC, but you have to know where you can so you won't mess up the bootloader.
With that you'll be able to call
But my advice is : Wait for an official script from Pine64. You can check their forum...
Blabla I'm not accountable if you did try that out
RE: Paste text from clipboard to Facebook apps is not working
@Mic_ You can tap on the text field, it opens the OSK.
Then long press the space bar.
You'll find a shortcup on the top right for pasting data...
[Edit] Just tested on Pesbuk : OK.
RE: UBports Docs app
@MarkG_108 The feature is available, but each app is responsible to declare and to handle how the files can be openned.
So I think MorphBrowser in this case doesn't tell the system that he can read HTM/HTML/... files.
I don't know if there is an issue open for that but if you want it, you can check existing issues for MorphBrowser and if this one doesn't exist open a new one.
