Ubuntu – How to access SD-card within Aquaris E4.5 (Ubuntu edition)

filemanagersd cardubuntu-touch

I have just purchased a new bq Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu edition and I am not able to read or write on my SD-card. The smartphone recognizes the external drive, but neither the ubuntu touch file manager nor any other app gives me the opportunity to access the SD-card. How can this be achieved?

Best Answer

In File Manager, click the menu in the top right of the screen and choose "Unlock full access". This should ask for your passcode/pin.

Once unlocked swipe up from the bottom to reveal "Places" and you should be able to navigate to the SD Card, which may have an obscure volume label as mine does.
