Yes! Believe it or not, the nasty bug that made your +Ubuntu Phones unstable during incoming calls will be fixed very soon. Canonical promises to release the OTA-9.5 hotfix just for that (and a few other small issues) in the coming days! #ubuntuphone #ubuntutouch #ota95 #Mir

You too can transform your +Ubuntu Phone into a mini PC. Here's how! For any questions, ask +Marcos Costales :D

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to make my first snappy package and I need some little help. I certainly misunderstood something. So there's the thing.

I wanna package etherpad-lite which is basically and nodejs app as i understood.

I take a look to the process to install it in a traditional ubuntu

https://github.com/ether/etherpad-lite#gnulinux-and-other-unix-like-systems

Basicaly it's installing gzip git curl python libssl-dev pkg-config build-essential from apt, the last version of nodejs, cloning the etherpad-lite repo and inside the etherpad-lite folder, running bin/run.sh (to begin)

So I try to write the snapcraft.yaml file like this

name: etherpad-lite
version: 0.1
vendor: etherpad <contact@etherpad.org>

summary: really-real time collaborative editor
description: Etherpad is a really-real time collaborative editor maintained by the Etherpad Community.
icon: icon.png

parts:
  etherpad-lite:
    plugin: nodejs
    source: git://github.com/ether/etherpad-lite_     _stage-packages:
      - gzip
      - git
      - curl
      - python
      - libssl-dev
      - pkg-config
      - build-essential

and try to run

$ snapĉraft stage

but when I take a look in the stage/bin folder I only found nodejs binaries

~/etherpad-lite$ ls stage/bin
node  npm

did I miss something ?

Really thank you for your help guys :)

Cheers and Snappy Hacking everyone

Nexus 4 - rc-proposed channel: You can use the phone screen as a touchpad. And if you click in a text field the keyboard appears on the phone screen instead of the external screen. (Sorry for the low quality)

How does it work? Is it just steering the cursor and tapping clicks? Or is it more like an advanced track pad with all kinds of multi-touch gestures?

Sorry guys, but you'll have to wait a little longer for the +Ubuntu team to reproduce the issue some of you are having on Ubuntu Phones during incoming calls. In the meantime, the devs are working hard on the enablement of the Ubuntu Tablet, codenamed frieza #ubuntutouch #ubuntuphone

Anyone know much about this? I don't know much about Ethereum, so I'm wonder exactly what this will mean for Ubuntu (Unity8). I guess we'll get more details at MWC

Hi everyone, just noticing something with my scope - I was wondering why I can't seem to trigger a three column layout in the preview?

In the picture I streached the layout edge to edge (this is the desktop runner from the sdk, but I have similar results on a nexus 4 in desktop mode and bigger screen size)

Here is the section from the preview.cpp - edited from the tutitorial project:

void Preview::run(sc::PreviewReplyProxy const& reply) {
sc::ColumnLayout layout1col(1), layout2col(2), layout3col(3);
//ONE
layout1col.add_column( { "header_widget", "summary_widget", "rating", "actions", "comment", "warning", "refrence", "drive", "power"} );
//TWO
layout2col.add_column( { "header_widget", "summary_widget", "rating", "actions", "icon_actions" } );
layout2col.add_column( { "image_widget", "comment", "warining", "refrence", "drive", "power" } );
//THREE
layout3col.add_column( { "header_widget", "rating", "actions" });
layout3col.add_column( { "summary_widget", "actions", "icon_actions" } );
layout3col.add_column( { "image_widget", "comment", "warining", "refrence", "drive", "power" } );
///
reply->register_layout( { layout1col, layout2col, layout3col } );

Hi, I have an Ubuntu related question but not on app development. I heard in the news that 15.04 has stopped receiving updates from conical. Does this mean if I have 15.04, it is now totally not use full?

New version (0.2.4) of Imaginario-dev released!

This is the candidate version for the upcoming Imaginario 0.3.
Changes in this version:
- Add tag sections selector to filter page
- Don't hide the image panels while the user is interacting with them
- Improve UI for face tagging

Note: Imaginario is available in the Ubuntu store totally free of charge. The development version (imaginario-dev) is also on the store, but it's sold for a symbolic amount of money, which stimulates me to keep the development going.

3 weeks ago +Daniel Wood shared a post about giving his Ubuntu phone (bq aquaris e 4.5) to someone who needs. I had a chance that I got that phone this morning :)
I didn't have any phone excepts screen broken nexus 4, so I couldn't develop any new app for Ubuntu. I hope I will make great apps with this phone.
By the way, new PockIt app with offline reading feature is on the way :)
Thanks a lot to Daniel and Ubuntu Community.

Hello.  I was wondering if anyone had some good examples of scopes using departments developed in JavaScript.  The API looks pretty new and I haven't seen any reference material to go off of for departments. 

Thanks.

Hi, i just see this "For the logic, JavaScript, Qt and other languages such as Python or Go can power refined QML UIs." in the dev ubuntu website.

Can anyone tell me how to use Python to develop apps for ubuntu touch?
I can't find anything about that

Hey guys,
I have two questions about developing HTML5 Apps, maybe someone can help me out: 

I haven't build an Ubuntu app (yet) and I'm curious: are there any good looking or especially cool examples of HTML5 apps for Ubuntu (Unity8)?
 I like getting to know how it's done by studying the source code and reading some tutorials. I know some HTML5, CSS and JavaScript and want to create a small diary application myself.

My other question is, is there anyone using Frameworks like Bootstrap or UIKit when creating HTML5 apps?

Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

Hello Launchpad users, did you know you could have shortened urls OOTB for any bug/person/project?

https://pad.lv/

eg. https://pad.lv/c/unity-js-scopes
pad.♥ short Launchpad URLs. pad.lv is a site-specific redirection service for Launchpad.net, so you can easily create short URLs to use in irc, mail, microblogging, or grafitti. NEW 2015-06: pad.lv is now available over https. If you have suggestions, file a bug or send a merge proposal.

+Kugi Javacookies you could add the UI toolkit PPA (https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/start/ubuntu-sdk/installing-the-sdk/) and install dekko from the xenial release.

Is there any way to run binaries from normal QML/C++ applications (using the "system" command or using Qprocess class)?
Where do I store the binary file that I could run without root? What about the AppArmor?

+Petr Štětka​ take a look at https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/start/platform/guides/app-confinement/ Especially about the runtime environment. PATH=<installation directory>:<installation directory>/lib/<gnutriplet>/bin:$PATH So if you include your binaries in lib/<gnutriplet>/bin you can just call it by name

I don't know why the background is transparent before OTA-6,just like the effect of terminal on PC.
When I switching tasks, I find it's semi-transparent,like the following picture.After I switching to my app, it's black again.
Thanks in advance.
