Bug Description

Because of the limited space on the phone, a read permission to SD Card would be helpful.

phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cd ~/.local/share/navigator.costales/
phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~/.local/share/navigator.costales$ ls -l
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 phablet phablet 7168 Apr 15 2016 cookies.sqlite
-rw-r--r-- 1 phablet phablet 0 Apr 15 2016 cookies.sqlite-journal
drwxrwxr-x 2 phablet phablet 4096 Nov 26 21:43 Databases
drwx------ 2 phablet phablet 4096 Sep 6 2015 Local Storage
lrwxrwxrwx 1 phablet phablet 34 Nov 26 21:02 maps -> /media/phablet/<label>/uNav/maps

But this only works with a manual change of the apparmor profile:

[sudo] password for phablet:
root@ubuntu-phablet:~# vi /var/lib/apparmor/profiles/click_navigator.costales_navigator_0.XX
  # SD card: /media/<user>/<label>/...
  owner /media/*/*/uNav/ r,
  owner /media/*/*/uNav/** rwk,
  /media/*/ r,

and reload of the profile.

I can't do anything until the system allows that.
I'll keep the bug opened.

Another issue should be solved, before using the SD-card:

Note that if you put the file ".nomedia" in the directory /media/<user>/<label>/uNav, then mediascanner will not search for images there. It would be nice if this could be done by default by uNav.
