I'm a fan of scopes and if your proposal is to give them new life, well be my guest. Unfortunately, I cannot dig more into your thoughts since I'm not a developer, but it sounds good to me and I definitely support your idea!

RE: [GUIDE] X Forwarding from Ubuntu Touch to Windows Desktop (via USB/WIFI)
Amazing information Kugi, thank you! As soon as I go back at work, I "WILL NOT USE IT" to open Ubuntu x-apps on Windows ;-P
Very good job indeed.
RE: Mirror smartphone screen on Desktop
One french guy made some progress here. See the relevant video and github.
RE: Desktop apps
For me, the command libertine-container-manager create --id ubuntu --name 'ubuntu' didn't work.
What worked for me is: libertine-container-manager create --i ubuntu --n myContainerName.
Just to give an advice, in case somebody get the same error I got typing the first command.
P.S. I installed Firefox, Inkscape and LibreOffice up to now and everything work like a charm...really impressed.
Thank you for the procedure.
RE: Today scope now without weather information
Same problem for me also on the BQ Aquaris E5 but, after passing to Ubports, the weather information disappeared since the beginning. I also followed instruction on this forum to install the click package of the Canonical original scope but didn't work completely: I miss weather info and moon phases but for moon phases the problem is that the service is not for free, so devs removed the relevant API. An other feature I miss is the address detection on the Nearby scope: any clue on how to restore this as well?
