@datenteiler @ubports We don't have that many tablets yet, unfortunately. If you can get your hands on an old M10 HD or FHD, they run great and have dedicated micro-HDMI output. The Nexus 7 2013 WiFi and LTE run mostly fine, but it's pretty small and getting a little old. The port for the Pinetab is not fully polished for productive use yet. Keep an eye on the devices list for new ports: devices.ubuntu-touch.io/

Seriously, can be gorgeous if you want it to be. Why does everyone in computer science insist on reading ugly papers!?

TFW you wrote a beautiful paper and then have to format it in

@c0debabe CapRover is on a very good way there (if you're talking about servers, not clients or dev environments) caprover.com/

Thanks to the tireless work of Vince, you can now conveniently install on your using the ! devices.ubuntu-touch.io/device

But wait, there's more! If you find that does not work for you yet, the Installer has got you covered. Just run the installer again select to switch back. on phones has never been easier!


Move at a reasonable speed and occasionally try your best to improve things somewhat.

Wanna help me test the next point-release of the ? Not as exciting as the last ones, just some error handling improvements. Still good, though, as it includes prerequisites for an upcoming device! @ubports

Jan Sprinz boosted

Just released UBports Installer 0.7.2-beta with major redesign to the background library handling device communication to make smoother procedures such as installing other operating systems on the Volla Phone.

You know, Jeff's absolutely right. The fact that he's making his first trillion while small businesses are defaulting left and right and people are being kicked out of their homes is a thing you shouldn't be ignoring. independent.co.uk/news/world/a

i don't know about you, but i'm pretty sure most of my stress comes from the fact that fuckers like that are massively profiting from exploiting workers during a pandemic while tech bros are applauding their super deep aphorisms

@hirschnase Not yet, sorry. Not sure how different the hardware is, sometimes devices with very similar marketing names are completely different in terms of architecture. Here's the list of currently supported devices, if you want to keep an eye on it: devices.ubuntu-touch.io/

And here's a forum thread on the Pixel 3a port, if you wanna chat with some community members about the prospects for Pixel 3XL support: forums.ubports.com/topic/4621/

@staticbrat It's been my only OS for years. Unless you need "that one app", you get by just fine. Phone features work, you have Signal and Telegram for messaging, email, web, silly games, and OpenStreetMap. For me, Ubuntu Touch does what i need from a phone. If you do need a special app that is not available, that might be a problem for you, though. We're working on Android app compatibility (Anbox), but it's not completely ready.
