uNav immediately crashes on Nexus 5, wifi off, gps location on

Asked by Bruce Griffis on 2015-10-24

I have a Nexus 5 running Ubuntu Touch from the devel channel. It is running 15.04r2. I turned wifi off and turned gps on. I installed uNav from the Appstore. When I click on uNav, it immediately crashes. Could I send any logs? Would you be able to look into it?

Hi Bruce!
If uNav is not opening is because I added code for keep the screen always ON.

The hack was created for 15.04 OTA5 in stable release:
It's really necessary because with that code, it's not loosing the brightness.

Could you try the Jamie example:
If you need info about how to install, ask me :)

I asked about Nexus 5 in that bug a few time ago and it appears that the community needs to update the image:

But an easy way to know if this is the problem, will be run the Jamie package from comment #33 ;)

Please, tell me something. A hug and thanks in advance!

Thanks, I appreciate your taking the time. How would I go about installing Jamie's example?

Can I install click packages under 15.04, or do I need to go to 15.10 to support click package management?

Dowload Jamie file in your phone, then with the Terminal application go to
that folder and run this command:
pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted filename.click
Remember change the 'filename', i am on phone now, sorry.
After install, drop down apps scope for reflesh and you will see the new
icon. Try it and please leave a feedback into the bug :)
For uninstall, long click on icon :)

I downloaded the file to my laptop, then copied it over to the phone. I installed it. In terminal it showed it installed files and finished. I clicked on the icon, but nothing opened. I then clicked on uNav and it did not open either.

Thank you for the instructions, though. I appreciate your taking the time.

Yes, there is then ;) could you ask into the Jamie bug? I think someone has
to update the nexus 5 version.
I am so sorry that you can't use unav yet.

Thanks for pinpointing the problem. I installed a newer version by flashing ubuntu-device-flash --server="http://system-image.tasemnice.eu" touch --channel="ubuntu-touch/ubuntu-rtm/devel" - uNav works fine outside of Atlanta GA on my Nexus 5.
