Hi,

I'm on 'adb shell' now, done 'mount -o rw,remount,rw /' and 'chmod 0666 /sys/file_I_need_to_edit', but I cannot save edited file (in nano "Operation not permitted"). Could anyone help me with that?

A much cooler and user-friendly Linux terminal app will be available for Ubuntu Phones, Tablets, and Desktop in the near future. Here are all the details, and yes, your help is needed!!!

I would ask for advice, buy meizu mx5, or wait mx6 if you ever get the ubuntu version. Thank you.

OK, thanks, all out of stock ... But who owns these devices with android asks too much, an exaggerated price for a used. I'll wait for the new products.

Hi,
could someone please help me understand how can I use a Mapbox Plugin for Maps in QML on Ubuntu Phone?
this is the error I am getting:
QML Map: Error: Plugin does not support mapping.
Error message:The geoservices provider is not supported.

and this is the related piece of the code:
Plugin {
id: mapPlugin
name: "mapbox"
PluginParameter { name: "mapbox.access_token"; value: "some***value" }
PluginParameter { name: "mapbox.map_id"; value: "some***id" }
}

Could I be messing some dependency, maybe something to import?

I couldn't find any info on this, not even an example QML code using Mapbox :(. I have to switch the provider since the original maps provided by Mapquest that didn't require signing up are down forever :(

+Stefano Verzegnassi Thank you very much for the info. Well, in that case I will have to wait for Ubuntu devs to solve this as it now seems there is no easy way for me to implement maps in QML with Mapquest being down and Here maps not being free :(.

Recent updates of apps doesn't include changelogs and that's because the field to input them was removed when uploading a new version. Was it intentional? I had to look for it and was really hard to find. I think it should be a required field when uploading a new version.

Since I'm still waiting for my app's fate, I decided to play around an idea I got few months ago from Outlook webapp. :)

and yeah, that's my go-to-background-music.....I love it! :D

+Aaron Honeycutt Yeah, which I is not part of my original plan. This app was supposedly a side project that I can experiment with things and my focus would have been my first app. So now after 2 years my first app hasn't been updated :D

+Nic Las Yeah there is but I have a feeling I will have to backout the Reminders feature. I don't trust my programming skills so they might disapprove my app :)

I think Ubuntu Touch lacks some crucial settings for Time and Date. Date and time format relies on the system language or time zone and there's no way to set them manually. The calendar app I thnk always shows the dates from Sunday to Saturday. The calendar in the indicator depends on the language based from my observation. Is there a plan to improve on this? at least in next months?

I thought of this because I noticed that when I set my language to English(Philippines), the calendar in the indicator shows from Monday to Sunday but in English(US) it's from Sunday to Saturday. That is actually wrong because in our country all calendars are similar to English(US) format. Not sure if I should file a bug about this or file a bug about the general problem which is what I explained in the first part of my post.

Long post :D

Hi,
i wonder, what are the cache settings and start offline doing in Dekko email client when the app won't start if the device is offline (crashes imediatelly) and crashes if you take the device to offline?
It is sad there is no offline email client available now :(, I know the Gmail webapp works a bit if you load it and keep it running, but that is far from being ideal. Also, I really like Dekko and it has a great potential.
Thanks

I'm having trouble figuring out what part of the Ubuntu phone SDK I should use to make a publicly viewable folder on Ubuntu Touch. It seems that there is an apparmor profile that would allow me to make the files and folders, but it is marked reserved.

This is what I want to accomplish

1. person takes a picture in HelioGraph
2. the original picture is stored in ~/HelioGraph/Original on button press.
3. The edited version is stored in ~/HelioGraph/Edits after save.

I've read through most of the available documentation on the ContentHub but if the above can be accomplished that way. I must be missing something.

Ah good to know I was unaware of how MTP worked.
I was under the impression that using the reserved apparmor profiles are a big no no, I don't want to diminish distribution possibilities I'll keep it working the way it does, I already have an cache cleaning function to get rid of old images. Thanks for input everyone I'm glad I didn't miss the obvious this time.

Since MapQuest shut down its service, the osm plugin for the Map QML type is broken: https://developer.ubuntu.com/api/apps/qml/sdk-15.04.5/QtLocation.location-plugin-osm/
Is there any possibility to continue using Open Street Map using the QtLocation API?
Overview. This geo services plugin allows applications to access Open Street Map location based services using the Qt Location API. Data, imagery and map information provided by MapQuest, OpenStreetMap and contributors. The data is available under the Open Database License.

So I'm a bit disappointed that this feature was silently discontinued. Not sure what to do to get at least a short official answer for this issue.
Even if there are only a few apps using this feature it is not beneficial for attracting new app developers.

I've decided to make Sept 20th HelioGraph's BIG day in the sun, that is to say I want to hit 2.0 and be released on all of my target platforms. I appreciate all the people that have downloaded and made the network better by posting on it. So to you all, and to anyone else that joins the community. What do you think needs to be added for a good general market adoption. Yes, Wayne more filters are coming I promise.

Here is the proposed feature set for 2.0:
(check) signifies that it already does it.

Posting and Retrieving public images (check)
Responsive camera capture with filters (check) [need more filters though]
Ability to set "Rating" of the picture for images (check) [please read rules about posting images in the EULA]
Ability to set Maximum Rating of images you want to see. (check)
Ability to Comment,Like Images (check)
Ability to Change Screen Name (check)
Ability to Connect Patreon / Flattr account to images that you share (check)

Ability to search via #hashtags or by Screen name (Check)
Ability to Follow Users (Check)
Ability to Share images to people outside of HelioGraph (check)

Ability to Share private images with others in HelioGraph

I am having the weirdest problem. The Ubuntu sdk is not applying my changes when I run the app locally. It will save the changes to the qml files like changing the text inside of a label to "hi". But when I go to run the app it will still say "high score".
Anyone knows what is going wrong?

+Kevin Feyder I haven't had the time to migrate yet. I think it's just a matter of creating a new project with the new template and copying/importing your files from the previous.

Ready, set, go! You can now start porting iOS and Android Reactive Native apps to Ubuntu!!
 
Canonical has just made the React Native framework available for Ubuntu developers, who will now be able to port existing iOS and Android React Native apps to the Ubuntu mobile platform. So yeah, more awesome apps are coming to Ubuntu Phones and Tablets soon!

I submitted a new version of my app almost 4 days ago but it's still not approved until now. It needed manual review because I used the calendar apparmor policy which is currently in "reserved" status. It seems that this bug needs to be fixed first before it becomes "common" and normally available. It's quite an old bug and doesn't seem to be fixed anytime soon. Should I just remove the alarm/reminder functionality from my app until this gets fixed? The development has stopped for now since I don't know the fate of my app :D

And I think I just missed the deadline of #ConvergeMePlease :)

I'll just wait for their feedback.
