It worked for most commands, except with options like build --device. This
is now fixed in 5.4 thanks to the recent cordova-lib commit.

Ok, makes sense. Anyway, I have a distro-patched version available in an
Ubuntu PPA (personal archive) at :, for people who
want a quick start for Ubuntu only.

I imagine it will be resolved by next month, and then I can propose a
debian package with cordova-cli 5 or 6 as well.

I have finally been able to test with both cordova-cli @4.3.1 and master,
ie 5.4.1 as published in npm, all from a clean VM running 14.04.2 LTS, to:

platform add ubuntu
build --device
run --device

It is still not super pretty but there are no regressions and bugs are

So I would vote +1 for that cordova-ubuntu@4.3.1 to go in npm.
