RE: [Morph Browser] Explanation about Canonical in URL
@prog-amateur I gave you the -1 "like" not because of your question, but because your imply, without knowing its purpose, that it "allows redirections to Canonical servers" coming to suspect a GDPR incompatibility and ending by asking what else (not if else)" is sent as a telemetry from OS/app to whatever company/organization". All after the initial sentence, resuming or reminding the Ubports sentence in the website about the care about freedom of choice and privacy, as it were a lie, and asking "clear answers" assuming the ubports foundation has ever in some way given unclear or ambiguous answers or/to hide the truth behind them or has reason to do so..
so that -1 is for the chosen style and the tone of the question that I personally perceive and didn't like, not for the question. about your question, because it is a good question, this was my answer: https://github.com/ubports/morph-browser/pull/250

RE: TELEports. New Telegram app icon design
IMHO it's fundamental that the icon resemble the original one obviously avoiding any trademark infringing. I think we can use the original "3D-ish" icon as a base and colors (so to keeping similarity with the official one and make it discernable from the Unav one) and apply on it some of the UT official graphic guideline/style so to avoid trademark infringing.
for example something like:
they both are in origami style. in the first the geometry and the style of the paper airplane is different from the original/official logo (it'is another paper airplane ;)). the second is more similar in terms of geometry but the teleport effect make it whole new icon.
Proposal for a Telegram Stickers Project
as a way to spread UT/UBports I think could be also useful to make more famous our logos/mascot to the world.
One of our main communication channel is based on telegram that is the perfect platform for some of our marketing purpose for various reasons:
it is used on smartphonens
it is supported on UT (thank you guys!)
it is used by people prone to try something different even if it is (still) less used than whatsapp
it has stickers
I started to make a little collection of yumi images based on this guideline and using telegram guidelines
Our current sticker pack has "only" 13 images so I tried to expand it (actually I've 35) and substitute some of them with new one, :
A more completed pack is more probable being used in our and other telegram channels spreading the world Yumi mascot and UBports logo.
So now I've some questions for the UBports Foundation:
- Could this be useful for you?
- Am I infringing your trademark
- do I need an official approval?
- do I need only an official approval for the whole stickers pack or
- do I need an official approval for each sticker?
- do I need an official approval?
- do exist already a sticker project/place where I can contribute?
RE: New badge for Yumi?
because this is a more stable configuration than a circle
Jokes aside, when I made this symbol I was thinking of the third generation of Ubuntu DE (after gnome and unity7, our beloved unity8) and

RE: Want To Develop UT And Need A Device
@UBportsNews I have already contributed here and there but have done only little things. I'm studyng how to develop on UT but I'm only an hobbyist so I'm not a so good investment...
But, I found that there are at least two other italian UT users near me (less than 30km, and they are very active in the Italian UBports telegram group) and I'm already thinking of share with them my rpi4 to help each other in the develop and test process. Also in Mezzago (a town 7km from my home) there is a little but lively linux community that could be interested in the UT and its app development.
Last but not the least I directly know and I'm friend with many guys from informatics engineering (from the university Politecnico di Milano) with which I collaborate in the Openstreetmap project and wikimedia foundation and that could be interested in software development on more exotic platform like UT
RE: Ubuntu Touch Q&A 24 | March 3, 2018
what about the canonical plan about "ubuntu personal" (snappy-ubuntu-core+mir+unity8)? is it still a thing?
is there any plan about porting ubuntu touch on lowcost arm boards (eg. like raspberry Pi3) so the developers could test their apps and the system without having to buy a compatible smartphone?
[OT] is there any plan to bring an Ultrafast or Hyperfast Broadband connection to the Marius G.'s home? his lags in the UT Q&A videos are one of the moments that I look forward to
RE: New badge for Yumi?
my first test with yumi:
the my new logo proposal has the heads a little too big probably it is also an optic effect caused by the different design (the bodies are inside the circle, non on the perimeter, so the heads are more dominant) also maybe is better to enlarge the space between the various element to improve their resolution (so should keep in mind the screen resolution and our eyes angular resolution). the right yumi is with the modified badge symbol
RE: [solved] clickable building with non-zero exit status
@CiberSheep Yeah! after logout/in it seems to work!
clickable desktopit started to pull from clickable/ubuntu-sdk the clickable/ubuntu-sdk:16.04-amd64 image.
Maybe this logout/in passage is worth a mention on the doc.
Thank you all guys!
I will let you know if it works
RE: Spreading Ubuntu Touch to the world
Hi guys. I've done a "local" UT/Ubports group on Minds for the Italian community (it was an Italian community approved choice).
This group substitute the Italian Google+ group (so I didn't choice diaspora after tried it because we needed something more similar to G+) .
Sadly it is not possible to see, in guest mode, directly the posts, but it's possible to see them with single direct link that I regularly post on the Italian UT/UBports Telegram Group (e.g. https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/960417396226318336).
Actually it contains only 20 posts (first post on 13 oct 2018) with an average of 20 visualizations each and 8 members so we are far from the 240 members and hundreds post of G+
the positive side is that I can use tokens, earned thank to the social activity on my personal Minds page, to advertise ubports (each token can be spent for 1000 visualizations).
Other (open) projects, useful for UT, that don't need programming skills
This topic is opened because many of us would like to contribute to UT but don't have any programming skills.
We all know there are many things we can do in Ubports that don't need programming skills like translate, sponsoring, documenting, donating money, testing, bug-reporting etc but they are well known and already described in the project's website.
What many of us don't know is that there are many open projects that need (also) non-programming contributors and that could be or already are used in ubports (in the OS itself or in the apps).
Many of these projects are out there from some time and are well know but is always useful to remember them
PS: contributing to this list is also a way to contribute to the project without needing programming skills so you can start contributing from here
RE: Volla Kickstarter
hope they will have success!
Volla already have to make some change on halium/libhybris to support the newer Android base (9) on the GS290, so their work could help other porting in others new devices.
Also in Europe is starting a discussion about the protection of EU users privacy against foreign countries (both in hardware and software side),so, imho, this is a good time to show the user interest in this with the adoption of an opensource os on an UE manufactured device... I think this could start or help a process of mind-change in the manufacturer sector and app developers about UT support.
RE: Ubuntu Touch Q&A 52 Saturday 15th June @ 19:00 UTC
inspired by the question on New badge for Yumi? I have a new question:
how official choices will be made under the UBports Foundation? (aka what will be the decision chain?)
- There will be polls?
- Which choices will be extended to the whole forum community and when or will be they all limited to Board of trustees/Board Members/Sponsors and Associate Members /Advisory Board/Board of Directors?
- What will the timing be that you intends to impose between the new problem / question, the vote and the end of the voting period?
- To whom the "official" questions should be directed or where should be asked?
RE: Paid proprietary apps on Open Store?
what I miss in all stores is a pay what you want option...out there there are many developers willing to share their app for free and I really would like to have an easy and direct way to thank them (and also make a bugreport to their git*) and for the paid app let the develop choose if and what % share with the store/UT and let the user know what is that %
RE: UBports Website rebuilding
The site has MANY entrance points to the forum on many subjects and conversations.
I'm not talking about the entrance points to the forum but about the entrance point from the forum to the website.
I don't think have to search a conversation in the forum to discover the main website or a particular webpage in the project website is a good approach...and I still think this make look like the forum something isolated from the rest of the project...a sort of a dead end where is easy to enter but difficult to exit while it should let the user easily navigate in any "direction" inside the project and easily reach the desired webpage in the project webpage.
the same should also apply to the documentation page, another dead end section
