Wait, you seem to have something mixed up here. At the moment, only the Oneplus One is supported, no other device from the Oneplus lineup. The Oneplus 6 does not yet work with Ubuntu Touch!

RE: Workshops at Locations
awesome to see so much interest in a local event, big thank you to @twinkybot for setting this up! As promised, I will join as well. Unfortunately I have a thing Saturday evening, so I'll have to leave around 16:00. :( Sunday I'll be back!
Looking forward to meeting everyone!
RE: Donation by bank transfer?
Sorry, we don't have a bank account yet, since our legal entity (will be a non-profit foundation in Germany) is not active yet. Check back in a couple of months, then we will have a bank account that you can use with an IBAN, and we'll also be able to accept tax exempt donations.
RE: UBports device testing spreadsheet?
That's pretty nice, @wilfridd! Are you interested to join our QA team? We can definitely use dedicated people like you! You can join our telegram group at t.me/ubports_qa_team. Everyone who's interested to help is welcome, ofc!
We used a similar spreadsheet to test in the past, i uploaded it to nextcloud so everyone can edit it in their browsers, you'll find the link and password in the group. I won't post it in public to avoid vandalism.
At some point in the future it would be awesome to have a tool to organize this more efficiently, if anyone has recommendations, be sure to speak up!
RE: BQ M10 FHD bricked upon UBport install?
I have tried to hold the three buttons together (even for a long time, ~1 minutes) nothing happens until I release them. The tablet then powers on and get stuck and the androïd orange state message screen
Do you see anything else in that screen, any menue items perhaps? If so, you should be able to select something along the lines of Bootloader, Fastboot or Recovery? You might be able to move the highlight with the volume buttons and select with the power button.
RE: Running desktop applications on UBports (X11, Wayland, Mir and toolkits)
thanks for the writeup, that is a great explanation, especially for our non-technical users.
I can confirm that the switch to xenial is on the horizon. After the release of OTA-3 (which still uses vivid), it's full steam ahead with xenial work. To quote what Marius' famous words: "We want to walk up the stairs, not jump up the stairs," so i don't know what mir version the initial stable release of ubuntu touch on xenial will use, but i've seen the Wayland tests already working on some phones, so who knows... In the long run, Ubuntu Touch will ideally just use the latest stable version of Mir, we should not allow for another big backlock like the current one to accumulate. I'll restrain myself from using the stairs quote again.
It's great to see support from Canonical(-employees) here, thanks a lot Alan! I hope it will be a fruitful collaboration, without your continued work on Mir our already big task would be a lot more difficult. I'm sure you will also profit from us as an active downstream project that uses Mir.
RE: OnePlus One model 64 GB Sandstone black A0001 not compatible!!!!!
Hey there, sorry about that, you probably downloaded the installer from the website, there's still a link to an older version. I notified our website team. In the meantime, please try the latest version of the installer.
Before installation, please update to the latest version of android to make sure you have the required version of all firmware blobs that we can not distribute.
Please let us know how it goes!
