@advocatux Hello again!
I see, maybe it'll be useful in the near future.
I have a Idea when it comes to libertine (the UI), could a virtual trackpad be added? (Maybe it exists and I have not used libertine for a long time?)
Thanks for a quick response!
Are you sure that the Gemini PDA is installable through the ubports-installer?
It is not listed on the webpage.
Do anbox work with bluetooth apps? (I have a smartwatch which I wish to have running.)
I know @TheKit got UT running on the Gemini PDA. The big question there is, is it ready for daily use?
I really hope that the Gemini PDA will be officially supported.
I which to use UT as main OS on my device, but a few things hold me back right now.
Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of my statements. (I have yet to watch the latest Q&A.)
But I keep my hopes up that those issues will be resolved in the near future.
How ever, as a former UT user I'm very exited! (Used a Meizu MX4.)
Hello everyone again!
Is it possible to patch the kernel to be able to run libertine on Gemini yet?
I thought of a useful thing, if I would be able to use a part of the right hand side of the display as track pad (control a mouse cursor), this would make it easier to use desktop applications in libertine.
@thekit That looks amazing!
I'm guessing that incoming calls is the biggest questionmark in my head.
But I have to say very well done!
I know it's an early question but is it possible to run Android apps via Anbox?
Is it possible to dualboot?
Remember 16.04 will be supported in 3 more years.
Would I be able to install a 18.04 desktop container?
Once more, I love the work you have done!
I got my Gemini a few weeks ago, so far I only have Android on it and Ubuntu is not ready.
The kernel and bootloader is open source, they can be found here: https://github.com/dguidipc
I have following questions:
As Planet Computers is porting Ubuntu desktop to the device, should I wait for them to be ready and not ask any more here?
Is there a simple way to port Ubuntu Touch to the device?
Is it possible to port Ubuntu 18.04?
Does anyone else have a Gemini or is waiting and want the same thing?
As I wrote in the last post I'm waiting on a Sentio Superbook (laptop dock/DisplayLink based).
I have not gotten my unit yet, but it's close now, the mass production have begun, the first 3000 devices have been produced and they are doing final quality tests now before shipping.
I can't find any information about software except that they have booted Debian on the device.
Further more, I have ordered a Sentio Superbook, I think it will be a nice companion to the PDA.
If I find any info I'll write it here.
PST: Tomorrow the price will increase with $200.
@WLBI Indeed you are correct, but I had a Meizu MX4 and really liked how the ui worked on it and think that the ui would suite the device very well.
Other whys Gnome 3 could be nice too of course.
As long as anbox can run the Android apps I want to run.
Best case scenario anbox would run the apps on the Android system (so that I would have to boot into Android only if an app is not compatible with anbox).
Strange, I'm sure I read that the drivers and software would be open source and that it would be based on Linux kernel 4.9.
In any way I think it will be possible to install a desktop version of Ubuntu and they have just tested Debian on the device.
So it should be possible to install Ubuntu Touch on it.
The CPU /GPU is specified Mediatek Helio X27 processor and the Mali GPU.
I will hopefully get my Gemini PDA in December.
If you don't know about it, please read this:
As I have understood it the hole platform is open source.
So it should be easy to port Ubuntu Touch to it.
(I once tried to port Ubuntu Touch to Motorola Droid 4, so I have a good idea how to do it.)
Are the phablet tools still available?
