How to Install Ubuntu 19.10+ alongside Windows 10


  1. In the laptop BIOS enable Legacy Boot (if the laptop supports UEFI/Legacy Boot) as dual-booting is problematic on UEFI enabled hardware.
  2. When booting enter the BIOS boot menu (e.g. by pressing F12) and select Legacy Boot.
  3. Create the required logical partions on the drive for Windows 10 and leave unalocated space for Ubuntu 19.10+.

  1. In Android Studio 3.1 open Run/Debug Configurations
  2. For the respective Configuration, e.g app under General->Launch Options->Launch Flags: add a key-value pair, e.g. --ei DAY_TIME 5. For more options see: Specification for intent arguments
  3. Read the key-value pair in Kotlin:
// Get the value with intent.extras[KEY_VALUE] which returns a value of type 
// Any!. Check for "null" and convert it to a string otherwise return a string

For some reason running the following commants from a .bat file won't work.
Use the Command Prompt.
Command Prompt:
VS2013 x64 Native Tools Command Prompt - for native builds for example if you
build for Windows 7 64 build you should use this Command Prompt.
VS2013 x86 Native Tools Command Prompt - use this if you are compiling on 32 bit

As it is currently, you can only hack that by symlinking /share/qtcreator/QtProject/
(or Qt on OS X) to the same path within your standalone Qt Creator
Example (Windows):
C:\Qt\qtcreator-3.2.82\share\qtcreator>mklink /d QtProject c:\qt\Tools\QtCreator\share\qtcreator\QtProject
You can’t perform that action at this time.
