RE: MTP access to Nexus 5 from Windows 10 PC
I had actually already seen that thread and I had already tried to follow the advice given there.
So I tried again, but without too much hope it would now work. But -O ye, of little faith- it did work! The different outcome might be related to the installation of the ClockworkMod ADB driver earlier today (http://adb.clockworkmod.com/), see step 6 below.
For future reference I will list the different steps (as the terms are not identical as in your list):
- Open Device Manager, fold out "TP-LINK Android Phone"
- Right click item "Google Nexus ADB Interface"
- Select "Update Driver" on Driver tab
- Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
- Select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers from my computer"
- Assure "Show compatible hardware" is checked and select "USB Composite Device" (I'm inclined to believe previously only "Google Nexus ADB Interface" was available, and the new device might have come along with earlier installation of the ClockworkMod ADB driver).
- Select Next, wait for driver installation and close.
- The device auto-mounts immediately!!!
MTP access to Nexus 5 from Windows 10 PC
When plugging in my Nexus 5 (OTA-9) into my (up-to-date) Windows 10 PC the phablet home folder does not auto-mount. The device instead enters into charging mode (battery icon turns green).
Developer mode is enabled and I do unlock the screen. And I have tried 4 different USB/micro-USB cables.
The device does mount when plugging in into an Ubuntu 16.04 PC. And at Windows' side, I do succeed in auto-mounting another Android (6.0) smartphone.
In Windows device manager the device is shown as a 'Google Nexus ADB Interface'. And the installed driver is ClockworkMod UniversalADB 184.108.40.206.
Btw, this post is really about getting the MTP access from Windows working, and not so much about accessing my files. Indeed, apart from accessing them through the Ubuntu 16.04 PC, I can also access them through SSH.
I hope I'm not missing the obvious here (like installing a dedicated MTP Windows tool) ...
GPS track recording app available?
I was requested to install Gaia GPS (https://www.gaiagps.com/). As I only have Ubports, I am looking for an alternative Ubports app that can a) records tracks, b) record waypoints on these tracks, c) associate comments and pictures with those waypoints and d) exports tracks as .gpx or .klm. I suppose we are not there yet? Or are we? Any suggestions?
RE: Protective case for LG Nexus 5
I think I spotted an interesting one, not showing any side borders (only angular ones): https://www.amazon.com/iGadgitz-Premium-Leather-Multi-Angle-Protector/dp/B00HDFYDEE
Protective case for LG Nexus 5
Dear UT supporters,
Would anybody like to share a reference to a brand and type of protective casing for LG Nexus 5, compatible with the Ubuntu Touch swiping gesture? Preferably deliverable to Europe.
Without any ideas, I will go for a universal wallet-type casing with sticky panel and without internal borders, but previous experience learned that the panel's stickiness tends to wear off due to dust infiltration, eventually causing the phone to fall out the casing.
RE: Notes bug?
note to self: RTFW (i.e. rtf wiki) before posting ... the bug trackers are listed at https://wiki.ubports.com/wiki/UBports-Bug-Trackers/da00bef and my 'bug' was already listed here https://github.com/ubports/notes-app/issues/2
When creating a local note with the notes (aka reminders) app, after saving (pressing 'close') it first shows up in the list of notes, but then it disappears after closing and re-opening the app.
Probably this is linked with the file being directly created inside ".local/share/com.ubuntu.reminders/@invalid ", instead of in ".local/share/com.ubuntu.reminders/@local " where they used to be created under OTA-15.
Anyone else with this issue? Where can I file bugs (I suppose https://launchpad.net/reminders-app is not any longer the place to go to)?
