I've just got a Nexus 5 to try ubports. The installation was amazingly easy (once I had adb tools in my path), and I really like it so far. But the one thing that totally confuses me is the 'desktop' and 'shortcuts'...
When I do a right edge swipe I see all my open apps in a stack, but for each one, I also seem to get a corresponding shortcut on the desktop? When I close any of these apps, it disappears from the stack and the shortcut disappears too. If I close them all, I'm just left with the app drawer and the corresponding 'scopes' shortcut, which I can't close.
So my questions are:
- Is the desktop area something I can use myself, and place my own shortcuts, files etc., onto. Or is it purely for the purpose of displaying, selecting and closing open apps?
- The shortcuts that appear just seem to be a duplication of the list of open apps in the stack, so I don't really get their purpose?
Sorry if I'm using strange terminology, but I'm completely new to UT. I'm using 16.04/stable btw.
Many thanks for any advice...
