Goodnight.

I'm publishing a programming course of Ubuntu Touch starting from scratch in Spanish. The course includes the steps to install the SDK, creating #WebApps and now the creation of native applications with #QML and #JavaScript. You do not need programming skills because all the basics are explained.

The course is published on GitBook and source code on LaunchPad.
https://www.gitbook.com/book/mimecar/curso-de-programacion-de-ubuntu-phone-touch/details

In the coming months I will begin to translate chapters into English but I have a definite date to do so.

The Canonical Web Team is conducting research interviews to test a prototype of the new developer.ubuntu.com website. Participants will receive a £40 Amazon voucher. The only prerequisite is to be a developer for Ubuntu (please bear in mind that Canonical employees can not participate).

The interviews will be conducted via Google hangout so you will need a good internet connection. They will last 60 minutes and run from Tuesday, 27th September to Thursday, 29th September between 9am-6pm UK time.

If you would like to take part please fill out this form: http://goo.gl/gseddd

Anyone else that lost the activity indicator after OTA 13?
I tried to check the Ubuntu UI Tooliit app and saw the following in the log.

QML ActivityIndicator: file:///<path> Invalid Property assignment: "implicitHeight" is a read-only property.

This seems to affect the whole system since every part that the activity indicator is supposedly displayed, it's not there.

I'm encountering issues after the latest update of Ubuntu SDK and my migration to new qmake project templates.
It's getting more and more frustrating :(
Please help me :)

Whenever I run on the desktop kit, everything's fine but when I run to my phone, it complains about my imports as not existing directories. Apparently, when I checked my app's folder on my phone, all files are in one folder without my subdirectories. I can't find what's wrong....

+Stefano Verzegnassi I was able to create a multi arch click package by creating the click package in the Ubuntu SDK and selecting multiple kits. It's named as "multi" instead of "all" but it's all good 😁
Thanks for the help

Hi, just wanted to share how I was coping with the times the sdk decides not to work with my phone, I made a simple script that builds with click and pushes to the phone with adb and installs the build at once:

(er, g+ was formatting asterisks...)

https://gist.github.com/mateosalta/c4b9179c798e1f59c1ae2466753bba64



name it something like "deploytophone.sh" make it executable,
Just keep this in your project folder and run it from terminal - also note it is using wildcards so you don't have to rewrite it every time you change the version or project name ( just be sure you don't want to keep previous .click file builds), hope this helps others with similar problems, as I have started mostly building webapps with this method to test on the ubuntu phone, with gedit and the terminal ;)

Hello everyone,
Today I've installed the Lubuntu 16.04.1 LTS on an old PC to work with Ubuntu SDK. Everything went well until I saw this error before running the IDE. Is there a workaround for this problem?

* What is the minimum system requirements for Ubuntu SDK IDE? :D

** I had a lot of problems with Ubuntu SDK on the virtual machines (Parallels Desktop and VirtualBox, related to OpenGL).

Thanks

Anyone has a version of moment.js that is ready for QML use? Importing these kind of JavaScript library seems to be not as simple as it should be. I have one working but it's an old version of moment.js and lacks some of the good functions in the latest version.

Porting UT Click App to Ubuntu Desktop

Hej guys, I've written an App for Ubuntu Touch for a DIY Sous-vide Cooker. I'll publish that project on instructables next week or so. You can find the source code of the App on http://launchpad.net/sousvide and soon in the (open) app store (pending review because of reserved policy group bluetooth :-/ ).

I'd like to add support for Ubuntu Desktop so that people without UT can use it as well. What is the recommended way? Snaps? Debs? Sth. else? Is there a way w/o rewriting the source code?

That's good news! Why does the user needs to manually connect via command line? QBluetooth in a C++ backend works on my phone pretty amazing. No need for command line. That means finding and connecting devices and exchange data.

As part of one session in the last UOS, they mentioned 6 months to land the refreshed scopes. So, they clould land in OTA14, wich is expected in the early days of november, I think. Unless they manage to gives two more OTAs (14-15). 🤔

I'm trying to migrate my app to qmake since the old project formats seems to be unsupported now. I can't add the desktop kit to my old app's project. I can only run on actual devices.
Anyway, as I mentioned I'm migrating however I'm encountering errors. I haven't even started migrating my app. I just created a new qmake project. I chose "QML App with Simple UI (qmake)" and I didn't change anything yet but when I'm trying to run I get the following errors.

A lot of warnings like:
ignoring old recipe for target <path>
overriding recipe for target <path>

An an error:
Circular <path> <- <path> dependency dropped

To be honest I'm not knowledgeable on qmake/cmake or makefiles. So I would greatly appreciate some help :)

I saw a solution in askubuntu and it seems that this bug [1] is causing the errors. It's almost a year old bug that seems to be in need for a fix.

Anyway, now I'm encountering a different problem. Whenever I run my app to my device, it complains that my imports in Main.qml are not existing directories. They do exist in the same folder as the main qml file and it works fine when running locally.

Releasing the 4.1.0 Ubuntu SDK IDE. The testing phase took longer than we have expected but finally we are ready. To compensate this delay we have even upgraded the IDE to the most recent 4.1.0 QtCreator. Based on QtCreator 4.1.0. We have based the new IDE on the most recent QtCreator upstream ...
