@Flohack said in Libertine and Desktop apps in OTA-14:
Converges is not "running desktop apps on a phone". For us its mainly a task to create Apps that behave well on devices of various size and capabilities.
Firefox is in no way optimized to run in UT, and Libertine is kind of a bridging the gap, but still has a lot of chances to break. You will run into a lot of usability issues, also exchanging data between other apps outside Libertine may not work.
Well, I guess I misunderstood the statement on ubuntu-touch.io under the heading Convergence: " Imagine linking your mobile device to a monitor, mouse and keyboard and having it instantly transformed into a desktop experience. With Ubuntu Touch you only need one device. "
I've long resisted purchasing a tablet because I hate the iOS and Android operating systems which do not allow to do anything serious on those machines. I finally purchased a (2nd hand) Aquaris M10 FHD to install UBTouch on it, hoping that I would be able to do more. I am a musician, I would like to be able to engrave my scores (using Frescobaldi/Lilypond or Musescore), install the tablet on a stand with the resulting pdf (with the possibility of annotating it) and connect it to a BT pedal to turn the pages as I am playing using a single device.
With iOS and Android, I can do the second part, but I need a desktop or laptop running a decent OS for the engraving part.
I understand it's not an easy job to make this possible (Microsoft failed with Windows 8 and the Metro interface), but I still look forward to the fact that it will be possible some day.
PS1: I tried to install Firefox because I cannot connect to my google account (shame on me) with the Morph browser and there's no alternative browser.
PS2: As they don't work, I would like to uninstall Firefox and Frescobaldi/Lilypond. How to do that properly is unclear to me.
Any help would be appreciated.
PS3: I installed the application in a container of my own. The system however came with a built-in (puritine) container in which several apps (such as libreoffice) are supposedly installed. But I don't know how to launch them (and even whether they can be launched at all): ubuntu-app-launch-appids does not show them at all.
