Post all features you would like to see in future updates!
Those with lots of votes will get looked at first

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    If you reboot your phone, and then go to terminal, you can resize your "ubuntu.img" before you boot it, making more/less space available for Ubuntu:

    su <press return>
    cd /sdcard/ubuntu <press return>
    e2fsck -fp ubuntu.img <press return>
    resize2fs ubuntu.img 3500M <press return>
    e2fsck -fp ubuntu.img <press return>

    ... is what I did. Step 1 does a filesystem check (forced) and the "p" option means "prune", whereby it fixes filesystem errors. The next step resizes my "ubuntu.img" to 3.5Gb (3,500Mb) and the final step does a filesystem check, once more.

    • Ability to transfer personal settings when changing to new Linux img file

      It would be nice to have an "Auto migrate settings" option when switching from one Linux img to another updated img( of the same Linux distro ) or the ability to copy settings from one img to another by pointing to the destination img file then the target img file and settings would be ported.

      Settings should include, at the very least, anything under the /home directory. And icing on the cake would be to detect other custom setups like /etc/ changes you've made( think init.d changes, or host file, or /etc/profile changes ) and the "Candles on the cake"…
