ubptgbot<phovi> I have installed Anbox on my XperiaX running UBports but for example the email app crashes every time I try to open an email.

ubptgbot<Elias> Hello, I'm using UBport on a pinphone, and I can't install tools via "apt" on the command line, UBport prevents users from having control over the "apt" tool, does anyone have a solution to this problem?15:32
ubptgbot<mimecar> you should use apt only on Libertine15:34
ubptgbot<Stereofont> Or he can wreck his phone if he is certain he knows what he is doing 😁15:37
ubptgbot<Elias> Then why is apt installed by default if it can't be used?15:38
ubptgbot<UniversalSuperBox> It's used to put together the image, and removing it would be more interesting than just leaving it there.15:39
ubptgbot<Stereofont> It can be used in Libertine. It isn't a desktop but you can hack all you want, as long as you don't expect things to work15:39

So far, OTA updates doesn't change the size again so may need to resize once but bigger OTAs may overwrite  changes you've made in the rootfs15:41
ubptgbot<Javacookies> @Stereofont [UTtweaktool], I believe it's not available in the pinephone due to android specific commands used15:42

ubptgbot<Elias> Okay, thanks for the information, but is there a detailed document that deals with this topic there, on the ubports wiki?15:44
ubptgbot<Stereofont> There is UT on Pinephone group now. See the News channel15:45
ubptgbot<UniversalSuperBox> No, because this is not a supported way to run your device. Things could break, and if you install a system update it will erase your changes15:45

ubptgbot<dohbee> there's unfortunately no devices that have 100% working hardware yet, and various devices may have other issues, because phones are super annoying. so i guess try it and see if it's good enough for you on your device of choice, since it sounds like you already have an op316:29

Sadly recently that does not persist after a reboot. But eventually this will get merged and installed properly.18:25

ubptgbot<dohbee> the description reads correct20:33
ubptgbot<o101o> @dohbee [the description reads correct], TYVM20:33
ubptgbot<o101o> Also did I hear one of you say in the Destination Linux interview from about for weeks ago, say that the Nexus 4 (maybe it was the 5) only  had the convergence part working. Meaning no cell/data function at this time. Or did I misunderstand? I have friend with a 4 and I might be able to get him to give UBports a try. I just don't want to ge20:40
ubptgbott his hopes up if there is no cell/data working at the moment. I believe at one point he had Ubuntu Touch running on it.20:40
ubptgbot<dohbee> @o101o [Also did I hear one of you say in the Destination Linux interview from about for …], i think you misunderstood. most everything works on the nexus 4 (except for hotspot, and maybe wireless display)20:42
ubptgbot<o101o> oh great20:42
ubptgbot<o101o> I'll let him know20:42
ubptgbot<mintphin> @UniversalSuperBox [I don't think this does anything, what are you testing this on?], i remember seeing this work on a tutorial of how to use the terminal20:57
ubptgbot<mintphin> @UniversalSuperBox [I don't think this does anything, what are you testing this on?], [Edit] i remember seeing this on a tutorial of how to use the terminal20:57
ubptgbot<mintphin> posted about a year ago on the ubports forums20:57
ubptgbot<mintphin> [Edit] posted about a year ago on the ubports blog20:57
ubptgbot<dohbee> @mintphin [i remember seeing this on a tutorial of how to use the terminal], i'm pretty sure the filename is `.writable-image` and it doesn't go in the home directory20:58
ubptgbot<mintphin> ah20:58
ubptgbot<mintphin> yeah it's a vague memory actually20:58
ubptgbot<mintphin> then yeah i think it could be that.20:58
ubptgbot<dohbee> anyway you shouldn't do that20:58
ubptgbot<dohbee> if one really wants a traditional linux distro on their phone, they should probably be using something other than UT20:59

ubptgbot<o101o> @dohbee [if one really wants a traditional linux distro on their phone, they should proba …], not that u were talking to me but I run ubuntu 20.04 on 4 thinkpads and so UT/UBports fits right in.21:22
ubptgbot<dohbee> @o101o [not that u were talking to me but I run ubuntu 20.04 on 4 thinkpads and so UT/UB …], sure, but Ubuntu Touch is not a traditional linux distro. the rootfs is read-only because the image has to fit in a small partition on the phone, and apt/dpkg is not really secure, and it's harder to support if it were writable. apps are managed wi21:25
ubptgbotth a life cycle policy, so they don't keep running in the background. they are confined to prevent apps stealing data from other apps, or using location/mic/camera when not allowed, and such21:25
ubptgbot<o101o> got it.21:25
ubptgbot<o101o> I get it. this is a phone not a laptop or desktop.21:26
ubptgbot<o101o> just out of curiosity. Is there a reason why the next pine phone release shipping with alpine and not UBports?21:27
ubptgbot<dohbee> @o101o [just out of curiosity. Is there a reason why the next pine phone release shippin …], they are doing group buy style sales, and part of the money goes to the community for each community edition. the last one was for UBports, and the next one is for the postmarketOS/Alpine community21:28
ubptgbot<Benni S> @o101o [just out of curiosity. Is there a reason why the next pine phone release shippin …], pinephone stands on its own. it supports all OS that are supporting pinephone. Therefore, community releases are iterating though thoses OS.21:29
ubptgbot<Benni S> I asked the same question just some days ago :P21:29
ubptgbot<dohbee> see https://www.pine64.org/2019/08/19/its-time-to-start-giving-back/21:30
ubptgbot<o101o> @dohbee [they are doing group buy style sales, and part of the money goes to the communit …], got it. sounds like a good move for the broader Linux phone (and I guess linux in general) community. That said UBport and Michael's  feedback is what sold me on trying linux a la phone now. I was gonna give it another year or two. Did not expect t21:36
ubptgboto giving it a try on a phone this summer.  Looking forward to setting it up. #science21:36
ubptgbot<dohbee> well, TBF android already is "linux on a phone" :)21:39
ubptgbot<o101o> @dohbee [well, TBF android already is "linux on a phone" :)], Point taken sir. But #fingerscrossed UBports is not triangulating us, six ways from Sunday and reporting to the government whether or not I'm maintaining proper social distancing.  And for the record yes I am. And I'm wearing three masks.  Even when using telagram.22:06
ubptgbot<dohbee> well UBports Foundation is a German not-for-profit entity, so GDPR and all22:07
ubptgbot<dohbee> Ubuntu Touch is the OS :)22:07
ubptgbot<o101o> okay so u kept the name. I thought it changed as a result of the fork. so I call it Ubuntu Touch. Got it.22:16

ubptgbot<rikshaw> Hello people, new Nexus 5 owner that just flashed UT. Finally back in the game after not having a device for almost 2 years22:54
ubptgbot<rikshaw> But, while wifi is connected (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz) when I open OpenStore it just spins, white bg.22:56
ubptgbot<rikshaw> I tried a terminal and I can ping the world by name or number.22:56
ubptgbot<rikshaw> I am a total noob btw, but listen to the Q&A audiocasts regularly 😊22:57
ubptgbot<rikshaw> well, not new to Linux, daily driver since hardy heron22:57
ubptgbot<UniversalSuperBox> Is the time right?22:58
ubptgbot<rikshaw> no, even though I set the city (Rochester, MN)22:58
ubptgbot<rikshaw> It says 9:38 pm22:58
ubptgbot<rikshaw> OK it is October 1970 let me fix that 😊22:59
ubptgbot<rikshaw> So is it a bug that auto time is not working? BTW now OpenStore loads 😊 Way to go @UniversalSuperBox you really are a legend 😊23:00
ubptgbot<Elias> This application is very interesting https://open-store.io/app/webapp-creator.jujuyeh but it doesn't install for the pinephone, do you have any idea how to make it work on the pinephone ?23:08
ubptgbot<Steve Kueffer> @Elias [This application is very interesting https://open-store.io/app/webapp-creator.ju …], There's also this webapp creator, which personally I prefer: https://open-store.io/app/webber.timsueberkrueb23:13
ubptgbot<Elias> Steve Thanks23:15
ubptgbot<Elias> The application doesn't work on the pinephone23:24
