I'm trying to put the final touches on my app. But I keep running into a error with the u1db.  So I can't save any data
heres the error:
u1db: Failed to open contrastScore: out of memory Error opening database
Does anyone that might cause this?

If for example you just want to store a database under the filename "score.db" that's it. If you were to put a database in ~/.cache/APP_ID/scores/score.db on the other hand, you'd have to create the scores folder first, and reference the absolute path to the database. Hope that's clearer.

Install this: https://uappexplorer.com/app/com.ubuntu.puritine and this: https://uappexplorer.com/app/libertine-scope.ubuntu to have Xapps on any Ubuntu Phone, although not recommended works on Meizu MX4 with rc-proposed.
Anyway, there is just one thing missing and that is the Libertine Container manager GUI ... only have command-line tools for that :(.

+mateosalta64 Yup, that is one of the items I shared in my original post above - and it was published just yesterday. But it only installs those apps with no way of managing it with a GUI. And to make it work the Libertine Scope has to be installed as well. So I guess for now the only way to manage the container, or potentially create and manage other containers, is to use terminal for that.

Yeah baby! Nexus 6 as an Ubuntu Phone :D Thanks to +Marius Gripsgård for all the amazing work!
 
Nexus 6 has just become an Ubuntu Phone, unoficially. Only the graphical interface works now, but Wi-Fi, sound, Bluetooth, Cellular support is coming soon!

Hi everyone.

I have a question. When I write 'snap find' I always get 101 results. But I know there are more snaps than that. In fact, in the list I get there is no ubuntu-clock, but if I do snap find ubuntu then it is.

What I am doing wrong?

Need some advice - wanting to create a cross-platform interactive map for ubuntu touch, ios, android, windoze etc. Am thinking easiest way is to have an online map using leaflet.js, and possibly maps marker. The task would then be to create 'wrapper apps' that display this, with html5/javascript coding when no connection with the server is present.

I'm wanting to use it for an interactive/immersive theatre project, where participants are hunting locations within a city. Each location would have a chsracter/task to interact with. Participants would be tracked through gps, possibly with directions to the next location. I'm wanting to involve hundreds of people at a time.

The app/site would stay up after the project as an interactive tourist map for the funding organisation. Any ideas? +Marcos Costales ? At this stage I'm researching, but am interested in paying someone to work with.

Thanks!

Suggestion: that's all doable on the web, so do it there first, and then if you get time and feel the need, make native wrapper apps for those platforms you want to (and all others can still use the web).

Hi,
I'm trying to learn about snaps. I need to have a case scenario either as a snap or in snapcraft. I need to be able to start up snappy core and have it pull down couple snaps like network-manager, docker. Any ideas? Who can help? Thanks

Hi +Luqmaan Abu Yoonus​. Take a look into https://github.com/ubuntu/snappy-playpen
It is a place where you can find a lot of snap examples and ask questions if you need.

Question about Gestures:

SensorGesture {
gestures : ["QtSensors.doubletap"]
enabled: true
onInvalidGesturesChanged: console.log('Invalid gestures detected !!!!', invalidGestures)
onValidGesturesChanged: console.log('Valid gestures detected !!!', validGestures)
onDetected: {
console.log('DOUBLE TAP DETECTED !!!!!!!')
executeAction()
}
}


i have this code placed on Page inside PageStack.

On start app i see in logs qml: 'Valid gestures detected !!!' QtSensors.doubletap

But when i tap twice ( tried different speed and so on ) onDetected is not fired up (((

Ubuntu Phone has a small amount of apps expecially when compaired to Android and iOS, and thats got many wondering, how would Ubuntu for Phones get applications, my answer is the Ubuntu Desktop.

There aren’t many Ubuntu Phones out there, but there are a lot of ubuntu desktops out there, the ubuntu phone app store has 1082 apps many are web apps with a bottom edge gesture, for example theres 914 games in the ubuntu desktop store, this doesn’t acount for many other types of apps and the applications that aren’t available in the store which you would have to download via a PPA or .deb.

So from that we know that there are more apps and more developers for the desktop, but how is this/can this help with the ubuntu apps problem?

Snappy packages are here and the Unity 8 desktop with mir will be here soon, this brings a new UI, with new features, this will bring the phone and desktop much closer, with this, any app that runs on Ubuntu with unity 8 and mir, as long as the app runs on arm, will run on the phone.

Will all apps work?
Probably not, Unity 8 + mir adds restrictions and more restrictions to the phone then desktop, with the phone theres a strict life cycle, this helps with battery life, but it means you can’t download files, listen to audio, or send notifications without using media services, you have to use a download service to download something when the app isn’t frount and center, to send notifications you need to use ubuntu’s push service etc.

These restrictions aren’t on the desktop version, though I believe there are talks about adding these restrictions to apps which are minimised, what this means is that if you run an application like Xchat (Which is available for ubuntu phone right now) on the desktop, if its focused you can see it and use it, if you put it in the background its still running, you’re still online and you can get notifications from it,
if you run it on the phone, if its focused it’ll work ok, the Interface isn’t made for the phone so it can be finicy, but it works, if you swipe away or the screen goes off, you’re offline, you disconnect from the servers and you get no notifications.

What does this mean?
It means work needs to be put in, there needs to be a ui that works on the phone, and there also needs to be background services for some apps, Libre Office doesn’t need any background services, nore gedit, but they don’t have the most flatering mobile UI and we can’t expect one, but there are many apps that do have a good mobile looking UI.

What I’m saying isn’t that all desktop apps will work great on the phone, its that many desktop apps will work on phone, and with a bit of effort if the UI’s there it could be an Ubuntu Phone app, see telegram, Skype, core bird, Gnome Music, any many more.

If someones making a new application for Linux on Unity 8 they might make it for the desktop, but if they consider convergence it wouldn’t take much more effort and it could make the application better on both devices depending on what type of app it is.

The app may never have been made for phone but because the desktop is there and because canonical is trying to make it as easy as posible to make convergent apps theres a good chance that we’ll see more phone apps because of the desktop.

Theres also a posibility phone applications will come over to both Ubuntu phone and linux desktops because of this
An example of this mindset is the Facebook app, facebook decided to make a convergent facebook application for windows phone, but they only made it because of the Universal windows apps, they would never have made a facebook app for windows phones but because they could get there hands on desktop and phone users they gave it ago.

We aren’t likely to see Whatsapp, Fb, Pokemon or snapchat officially supported on our Linux desktops and Ubuntu phones, but we are more likely to see open source options that work on desktop or coming to desktop to gain convergence features, we’re more likely to see bitcoin and social clients on the desktop gain a convergence look and feel, or add access to the background services to make them run well on the phone.

We can already see some work like that from the unofficial skype app and QuasselIRC on the Ubuntu phone store, both originally web or desktop apps that have gained convergence looks and feels, and yes the skype app is just a web wrapper but thats pretty much just what the official skype app for linux is, and if MS backed and supported it adding in unity 8 and phone convergence features, it is pretty much a convergence app.

How about the document viewer that is based on LibreOfficeKit, not a converged LibreOffice app but an app that takes some things that LibreOffice has to offer and makes a mobile app out of it.

Work still has to be done but our most likely source for Ubuntu phone apps aren’t ports of android apps, they’re new Ubuntu apps or Linux apps which add convergence.

I agree on this. Unity 8 on desktop and snaps will help Ubuntu phones/tablets get apps. I think it's also possible that other toolkits that are natively supports mir can be convergent apps. Other toolkits are heading to convergence as well I guess:)

Is there an easy way to manage reminders within an app? I mean adding, deleting, editing, etc reminders that are specific to the app. I'm checking QtOrganizer but I can't figure out how to use any of them. Checking on the Notes and Calendar apps doesn't help much either. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks! :)

After a few hours of figuring out, I'm still clueless.... LOL
I am now trying Alarm and it seems to fit what I need although the problem is it might mess up the Clock up when the user creates too much from my app. Another problem is that I need to uniquely identify each alarm created. I can use the 'message' property but it won't look good when the alarm is triggered and displayed.

I'm trying to use conditional layout with BottomEdge but I'm having issues. I want to put the content of the bottomedge to another layout when the height reaches to some point. However the problem is BottomEdge needs a component and Conditional layout cannot set a component as an ItemLayout. Is there a workaround on this? or am I using Conditional Layout incorrectly and should just give up and use a different approach? :) Thanks!

I'm loving AdaptivePageLayout :) But is there a plan to make it work not like a page tree? I mean currently the left most column is the main page then when you click something there you show the content in the 2nd column then when you click something there it show some contents in the 3rd column. I'm thinking if we can display for example in the 3rd column contents that are not dependent or related to the 2nd column and can be displayed permanently.
