Running UCS on Android

Hello all,

as Android is some kind of linux of course it is possible to run the ucs_client on a smartphone/tablet/tv with Android as OS. To achieve this we need shell access. There are apps like Termux that provide shell access or AnLinux which allows you to run a full operating system within Android. Actually the installation instructions are exactly the same except the commands that are used to install the required packages. Depending on the packaging tool the command is different. For Termux which uses “pkginstall” and any other linux distribution with APT as packaging tool you can find the instructions in the GitHub repository README.

Kind regards
