Any critic discussion about the actual state of the MUA in the UBports project is either just deleted, locked or sent to off-topic. I will think about if my active participation in this forum makes any sense.
... Frankly I don't see how Geary gives any advantage over the Dekko2 email client which works very well with a great interface for mobile devices already - ...
I was surprised about your comment re/ Dekko2. I'm on the latest OTA-8 (stable) and Dekko2 version. Having three SMTP+IMAP accounts configured, for me Dekko2 in nearly unusable. I filed bug issue for all these problems:
Draftsfolder; this happens mostly if one is on data mobile and with changed (network) locations; it helps a bit killing
Dekko2before creating the mail;
Inboxwhen Dekko2 is running when the mail arrives (which is quite normal I think)
Cc:addrs from contacts or history (which works nicely with the old Dekko);
For all this I now switched back to use my BQ M10 FHD which still runs the latest OTA of Canonical and the old Dekko. And that's also the reason for looking for alternatives (which Geary of course isn't as I got to know)
Which other MUA do we have as core app?
There is no MUA as a core app currently.
And dont you think that this issue is something which should be part of Q&A?
A bit triggered by a posting in puri.sm about the mobile Librem5, which is here: https://shop.puri.sm/shop/librem-5/ and which shows an icon of the MUA Geary, I installed this on my FreeBSD laptop, a screenshot is here:
I'm asking, as geary is available for Ubuntu, and in Gnome for the Librem5, why we could not port it to our UBports system?
Please elaborate about the near future and milestones of Dekko2. I do not see any progress for weeks. During the day I use the MUA on my FreeBSD laptops (mutt), when I'm on "the road" I do (or try to) use Dekko2 in my BQ E4.5. Due to its ongoing crashes and other issues (see the tracker) I'm forced to return to my M10 FHD which still runs the latest UT version of Canonical with the old Dekko
This situation is, at least for me, really a showstopper.
There is an EU law initiative underway against the RF device tinkering by OpenSource (and other) projects, which might effect us with out UBports devices. More details here:
@domubpkm That is simply the dark theme from DuckDuckGo, click the burger menu in the top-right and choose the black/grey theme
I'm now on OTA-8 but have no theme setting in the hamburger menu of the Morph browser.
