I think the "proper" way of installing packages is using:
libertine-container-manager install-package -i id_of_container -p package
I own a M10FHD too and I would like to jump on Ubports boat myself.
can you provide some details how to install. I would be needing to use a ubuntu desktop to load the file on the tablet. is this correct?
Yes, you would need to have at least some Linux distro, preferably Ubuntu of course.
For installation there is a clear guide which you can follow here: https://devices.ubports.com/#/frieza
For the boot time, there seems to be a a bug report in LP: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubports-frieza/+bug/1693055
First I want to thank you for the great effort on giving Ubuntu touch / UBports new hope!
Yesterday I wiped my M10FHD and installed the UBPorts legacy image.
Basic functionality works as expected. My BT Belkin slim style keyboard and MX Anywhere2 mouse also works and Desktop mode is activated automatically when the mouse is connected.
Booting takes ages from initial "powered by ubuntu" screen to advance. Any ideas on why that is?
What I'm missing is "legacy X11" apps like Firefox and LibreOffice. Is there a way to install those??
