Hi, I've performed a clean installation of CM 12.1 and Open GApps on my Nexus 5 today and recognized that "Ok Google" from Androids' home screen is not working. It's turned on in Google settings though. Can you help out?

I fear this is a problem within the ROM or within Google's app itself. So I am sorry to say we won't be able to help out.

You could try the CM developers, but I doubt they would be bothered by an incompatability with an advanced feature of an external app.
Writing to Google probably wouldn't help, since their applications are normally only for 'official' Google-approved ROMs of OEMs.

So I am afraid you're kind of stuck and have to hope for the best it is randomly fixed in some release.

Ok fine, I guess I just don't care then
Another question: Can I run updates of the Google Apps through the Play Store without any issues?

Yes you can.
Just remember then when flashing an updated open gapps package to wipe cache+dalvik

This uses aroma installer, right? Can I choose what gapps I want to be installed?

You can create a gapps-config.txt and place it in the same path where the GApps package is located. Then fill the file with apps you don't want to install (default is exclude mode).

Example content:

Drive
Docs
Earth

(this would exclude Google Drive, Google Docs and Google Earth from the installation).

The full list with all comands is here: github.com/opengapps/opengapps/wiki/Package-Comparison

Yeah, like on pa-gapps, but there is a AROMA gapps in the unstable versions. So I'm going to try it out first

Hi I use Android One device by google... In stock i was having FaceUnlock
but after moving to CM i was not able to install it using ANY gapps packge

so i was looking for whats wrong
And here is what i found

After skimming through update-binary and update-script of your and others' gapps packages i observed that it check for android.camera.harware.front.xml for front camera compatibility
but some devices(like mine) have front camera compatibility mentioned in android.hardware.camera.xml

So even if there devices are compatible , they will be shown incompatible because of this checking method


Hope you improve it soon to fix this issue
i'm attaching my phone's system/etc/permissions zip so that you can have a look at it
Its from stock and they have mentioned front camera compatibility in android.hardware.camera.xml
