Converting an existing installation to LUKS using luksipc - 2018 notes
Time for a laptop upgrade. Encryption was still not the default for the new Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition (9370) that shipped with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, so I followed my own notes from 3 years ago together with the official documentation to convert the unencryp...

You can now try out our new +Liri platform snap on Ubuntu! It's just a matter of one snap install command :)
The platform snap will power future Liri app snaps. While packaging those is still work in progress, you can already try the included demo of our ui framework Fluid!

Many thanks to all the kind souls at Canonical for helping me out!
A big thank you to +Sergio Schvezov, +Timo Jyrinki, +Leo Arias, +Kyle Fazzari +Zygmunt Krynicki, +Mark Shuttleworth.

This is the best currently available Ubuntu phone, I recommend it even though sadly the original Ubuntu edition sold out completely (I got one). I'm even considering buying a spare Pro 5 since I like it so much and would hate to lose/break it... camera (1/2.4"), speed, screen (AMOLED), battery capacity (3050mAh), fingerprint reader, everything's great about it :)
How to flash Meizu Pro 5 to Ubuntu Touch

From the start the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu has become very popular. Unfortunately, the phone was sold out very quickly, therefore a lot of Ubuntu users couldn't order the new Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu phone. For that reason Wouter Voeten and Maarten van Druten have made an extensive document how to flash a standard Meizu Pro 5 phone (with Flyme OS) to Ubuntu!

They would like to share this document with others, so more Ubuntu users can enjoy having Ubuntu on the Meizu Pro 5 phone. It gives any user a fully working Ubuntu phone, that accepts all official Ubuntu OTA updates.

This document is a manual for people who have advanced experience with flashing phones. The manual has been tested by several users and it works perfectly with the International and Chinese versions of the Meizu Pro 5. However, using this manual is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee your phone will be working. If you experience any difficulties, we or Ubuntu cannot be held responsible.

Another big Qt update ongoing. Qt 5.6 is +Qt upstream's Long Term Supported release and as such both suitable and targetted to the next stable Ubuntu phone/tablet platform based on Ubuntu's own LTS. A perfect match! #qt #ubuntu

I got my +MEIZU Pro 5 #Ubuntu Edition, I managed to order it before it was sold out! It's fast (both use, and 4G network connection), it has a great camera, and everything seems to work smoothly with the latest software update that was available.

Oh hi first successful boot of #Qt 5.6 on #Ubuntu Phone (LG Nexus 4) after battling through loads of build problems (and xenial image boot up problem). Many months to go though before this would land.
