Can not type on Android 10

by MlodyLas » Post

I can not type User, password or search for server, because typing does nothing.
Issue exist on Android 10, Motorola One.
I'v been trying on every 5.x version from f-droid except the newest one - doesn't start at all.
Does anyone got this problem?

Uninstall the old version before installing this one.

What files and folders are present in the Minetest directory? Make sure to note them down, then try clearing the app's storage (show recents -> long press on icon -> app info -> store -> clear data)

Thank you for your engagement/involvement. Do not know which word is more correct for situation 🙂

App seems to start. I can see very fast blink of loading screen, but than it is blue screen and nothing more.

Ok, this is more interesting.
Then a few questions.
1) Did you completely uninstall the previous version before installing the new one?
2) Did you, of course, provide memory permission at startup?
3) You did not see any Toast error messages (gray messages at the bottom of the screen)
4) Did the application crash? Did you see the application error message?
5) Your device? Model, manufacturer.
6) Do you use the official version of Android, without root and any modifications?

I will try to resolve this issue. Otherwise, I will buy the same device for tests.

Ok, I found a problem. Not everything is so simple with Android 10 and writing to /sdcard, as I thought.
I will fix it and send a new APK. Thanks for the report!

Sounds great!
Anyway:
1. I had uninstalled previous version, and removed any minetest folders that I can found in files program.
2. Yes.
3. No gray messages.
4. App did not crashed. I can switch between active apps. Also as I rotate phone, blue screen changes position.
5. Device: Motorola One (XT1941-4)
6. Official Android 10
Kernel version 3.18.124-perf-ge06adf489e56-dirty
#1 Mon Mar 23 09:37:46 CDT 2020
Compilation number QPKS30.54-22-6
Maybe this will be helpful.

Sorry for such a long delay. The solution was very simple. And I am surprised that it was generally required on Android 10.
Our test devices were on older versions and therefore we did not encounter a problem.
PR for Minetest will be released soon!
