Patch: Tablet UI

Your rating: None Average: 5 (5 votes)

It enables the Jolla Tablet-like Event view. It comes with three patches:

  • Tablet UI: to show the Event view sidebar and a settings page to customize the numer of toggles displayed per row.
  • Force large covers: to force large covers on the homescreen.
  • Large padding in Launcher: increases the padding in the launcher.

For the best result, you may want to tune your device pixel ratio with the UI themer.

Request a new language or contribute to existing languages on the Transifex project page.

Doesn't work in Sailfish Oulanka and it won't uninstall at all. Any solution at all?

mixmax's picture

I don't understand witch sidebar you mean ?

mixmax's picture

Hi, do you plan to update this patch for sfos 3 support ? Tks a lot.

fravaccaro's picture

I don't think I will, as the sidebar has been removed from Sailfih 3 (the Jolla Tablet has no sidebar neither)

isgursoy's picture

Can you send it to me? Could you find it?

fravaccaro's picture

I'm sorry but I'm not allowed to. I suggest you to contact him.

isgursoy's picture

Name of the icon theme please?

fravaccaro's picture

It's an unreleased theme by chenliangchen.

isgursoy's picture

And how to use single or 3 columns? Especially single.

fravaccaro's picture

Single column of toggles? It's not possible, but you can activate the 2 columns layout in Patchmanager.

isgursoy's picture

Which icon theme is this, i was looking for something like this for months :)

Universebenzene's picture

Seems not work in SFOS 2.2... Will you continue update it?

fravaccaro's picture

Yup, in the following days.

[EDIT] Released.

I don't have an Xperia, I tested it on my Jolla C and it uninstalls flawlessly.

hardy_magnus's picture

my favourite patch. can we have a separate option of using rows instead of columns ? i wanna see how that looks like, event view divided in two halves, one for toggle and other for notification .

fravaccaro's picture

I don't think it's possible and if it was, I have no idea how to do that, I'm sorry :(

MoritzJT's picture

What are the chances of getting vertical sliders for ringtone volume and brightness in the 2 columns in quick action sidebar? That would be much easier to control than the sliders that are too close to the screen bezel otherwise and even harder to control with that damned Kalman filter...

fravaccaro's picture

Sorry for the late reply. I don't think such a component exists in Sailfish OS.

jolla140917's picture

Is it possible that we can customize the placement and spacing of quick actions sidebar? As the position of brightness slider is where the finger sliding screen, I often change the brightness by mistake.

alina's picture

That's why they hid the sliders from the sidebar in the original design. :D Getting new habits is easier.

fravaccaro's picture

I'm pretty sure it's possible, but I don't know how :/

alina's picture

This is what we need – I think: putting "listFavLoader" loader just before "simpleFavContainer" item in "FavoriteSettingsLoader.qml". Here's the result:

alina's picture

Will be great if we can have also the SIM selector on the top.

Adding some lines from Events pulley will do it, but it appears even on JP1 with only 1 SIM – I couldn't figure it out.

fravaccaro's picture

Weird, I have a Jolla C but only one SIM to try out :/

Ancelad's picture this will hide settings-icon :D

fravaccaro's picture

Thank you! Actually I tried to remove that piece of code altogether resulting in the Events view missing, but I've not thought about adding visibility: hidden. I guess it may have something to do with my noobness :D
