ubuntu edition xps running remix os

I had to give this a go! Im loving being back on android for my mobile / tablet device after not such a good time with my ubuntu touch which is sad to me. Id thought id give it a whirl on the xps, the install wouldnt work at first and had to change my bios settings to uefi which werent enabled for some reason and then i ended up with a remix os install. Loved it just like a droid with a desktop gui and all the droid features! I was amazed by how all the apps worked and even 3d games such as GTA vice ciry!! The only app that never worked was wunderlist it just crashed!? i asked the guys at wunderlist they say they dont see any support coming off. Any way the laptop run great only problem is it felt restrictive for design. To top it off install it if you want social and general usage, media etc but for coding, cropping pictures, website creation im so used to my ubuntu desktop now. Have to give these guys 9/10 as they have nearly nailed it…..

here she is in all her glory the ubuntu editin dell xps 13 back on the OS it should be running for 2017. With a happy tux!!

ubuntu touch pebble app, rockwork

 

ubuntu touch pebble app, rockwork is the way to connect you watch to you device.

I did a previous blog on connecting ubuntu touch to your pebble watch but a few things changed since then.

The name was changed from uPebble to rockwork so nobody got sued! and the app was added to the open store, which to me is Aladdins cave of apps and makes it easier to upgrade the app. Plus the other apps inside open store are unconfined versions on great apps such as dekko,  owncloud client.

To get open store you download the ipk from here

https://open.uappexplorer.com/

and then open the terminal

cd Downoads

and then

pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted openstore.openstore-team_0.103_armhf.click

if you go to applications you will get open store app. Inside there select rocrockwork-openstorekwork and install. Once installed open the app and this will ask you to open system devices and pair.

Pair the device and go back to rockwork and you will see the phone is connected and see options to manage watch , install watch faces and install applications. You will also see options to install new firmware upgrades which is handy for keeping up with the latest updates on the phone. Here is some images i took inside the application.

* Currently supported features
– Incoming notifications
– Voice call control
– Music control
– Sync calendar to timeline
– App management
– Watchface management
– Pebble app store integration
– Taking screenshots of the watch
– Watch firmware upgrades
– Configuring health and distance units
– Sideloading watchapps/watchfaces

Ubuntu M10 Printer Setup

 

Looking at getting your Ubuntu M10 Printer Setup?

well before i start then i have to warn you that to do so you have to make your device RW now i wont tell you how to do that as if you dont then im sure you wont be able to do the rest !

Now there is printing support on the way ive been told and also its working for me but not fully, i have installed a sharp printer which can use generic driver and printed perfect but with the brother mfc7400n this requires a cupswrapper which is only available for 32/64 bit systems and the ubuntu tablet is arm, although ive taken a look at the source code which brother supply will look at rolling some debs for my tablet.

So once you have made the tablet RW you open the terminal and use the command sudo apt-get install cupsd      this installs the main cups server in the tablet and should automatically start the service if it doesnt then sudo service cupsd start  this should get the service up  and running. The next part i installed the gnome print manager in a libertine container as there is no front end yet for printers on UT, so i run this command: libertine-container-manager install-package -i vivid -p system-config-printer-gnome
now this is only assuming you have setup a extra container called vivid if the container is called something else just change the word vivid in the command to your container, if you havent setup a container then do this:

cd ~/.local/share/libertine
rm ContainersConfig.json
cp /custom/click/.click/users/@all/com.ubuntu.puritine/libertine-config/libertine/ContainersConfig.json .
libertine-container-manager create -i vivid -n “vivid” -t chroot -d vivid –force

once you have the cups server and the client in the libertine container setup you should see thisubuntu m10 cups

I then went to add printer and selected network printer were it search and found the sharp printer and selected generic driver and printer a test page !!

Im looking at these next:

  • DVD Writing support
  • MAME Game Emulator
